Plot synopsis/ Walkthrough

Lian Xing, having acquired the credentials of Thae - bok Jon, recalls her experience with another North Korean agent in Kyrgysztan. She was sent there to stop the deal between Saydahmat and Yang.

As soon as the mission starts, hang a left, and hide in the discreet area. Wait for Yang to question the guard and then move on, before throwing a star at the fellow he talked to. Immediately spin around and target the second patrol. That done, move on.

Sneak after Yang until he comes to the village plaza, where Samaev awaits him. Head right and kill the Yemeni terrorist lurking in the area - Samaev will get the container.

Follow him up the ramp until you come into an area with multiple guards. Sneak to the fellow outside a courtyard and snap his neck (This courtyard contains a guard with Yushchenko's papers). Hide his body just inside the conveniently placed discreet area.

Wait for the courtyard patrol to ignore you before you enter and snap his vertebrae. Notice that this area has a laser gate. When the body falls, hide it and recover the papers you need.

There is a discreet area just when you enter this new zone, to the left. Wait inside and two guards will separately approach you. Break their necks and hide their bodies. Samaev will have to cross a particularly long distance from the armoury to Yang, so check your screen for the message that Samaev has the container. Allow him to enter a dark area (but not the main square) before you toss a shuriken at him. Because he won't stop moving until he reaches Yang, you can never snap his neck (though you can if he detects an intruder and pauses in his movement, however it is generally safer to use your stars).

Snatch the container from the dead body and a new timer will count down. Go into the discreet area where you concealed two bodies and clamber over the crates. Keep climbing until you reach a carpeted wall - kill the guard before he enters the doorway. Turn left at the changing partition and you will wear the concubine outfit. Return to the main plaza and give the impatient Yang the container.

After tricking the North Korean, wait for him to enter a dark area before killing him. Alternatively, you can neutralise the two guards here and then decommission Yang, but this may blow your stealth. Re-acquire the container and retrace your steps to the palace. You now need another outfit.

Follow your map to the lower levels of this compound. There is another changing partition - hide behind it to wear the HOTTEST outfit in the entire game!!! With that, go towards Saydahmat's bedroom, where the guards will part for you. Poison his water chalice and wear your sherpa outfit again.

Return to the starting point to complete the mission.

Lian explains how Saydahmat's thugs will be surprised in the ending cutscene. They may find somebody else to replace him, but she shut down one major source of illegal weapons, for a while. With the credentials found in Yemen, she's one step closer to solving the mystery.
