Seemingly unrelated and troubling events headline the international new reports. Innocent
civilians are gunned down in the Hielongjiang Provice of China. A nuclear missle is destroyed
seconds before detonating over Kazahkstan. Tensions surge between the U.S. and China when
sensitive data is leaked to a dissident Chinese group.

Corrupt elements withing the Agency, a super-secret U.S. intelligence group, are the driving
force behind all of these dangerous events. Using the biotech firm Pharcom, the developed a
virus named Syphon Filter. Syphon Filter is the ultimate biological weapon and it's for sale.
The buyer will become the first terrorist superpower. Agency operatives Gabe Logan and Lian
Xing discovered the plot withing their own organization. They are now attempting to expose
the Syphon Filter conspirators and stop the sale. In response, the Agency has alerted the
military and law enforcement that Gabe Logan and Lian Xing should be eliminated.

Agency motives become clearer as Gabe Logan discovers Pharcom CEO Jonathan Phagan's private
files on the virus. Then Lian Xing, herself infected with Syphon Filter, is kidnapped for
use as an Agency guinea pig. Gabe must find the vaccine to save Lian Xing's life as she
attempts an escape from her captors.

Branded as criminals by their own government, Gabe and Lian Xing must strike with deadly
efficiency while leaving innocent personnel unharmed. Ex-agent Teresa Lipan, who operates
a clandestine spy network, will assist both Gabe and Lian Xing by coordinating missions
from her desert base. The agents make every move knowing that a traitor could turn the
knife at any moment.

agent is dead and the mission fails. To protect the agent's health, pick up flak jackets from
downed enemies or find them in weapon boxes.

Danger Meter- As the red in this meter increases, the agent's chances of being shot increase.
When the meter is at the max and flashing, the agent is about to be shot. Retreat or attack
the enemy.

the R1 button to lock on to the closest target. Press it again to switch to the next closest
target. Target locking is also highly effective when assailants are attacking from behind.
By holding target lock, the agent can fire over the shoulder or backward while retreating.
If the agent is using a two a two-handed weapon such as an M-16, target lock will stay
locked on target while the agent rotates up to 180 degrees. With a single-handed weapon such
as a pistol, target lock is maintained through 360 degrees of rotation.

The Target Meter: When target locking (R1 button) is held down, the Target Meter at the top
left of the screen displays the hit probability of the selected target. As the length of the
Target Meter increases, your chances of hitting the target increase.

Manual Aiming: This mode (L1 button + d-pad) provides dead-on accuracy. Sometimes a body
shot won't be effective because the target may be wearing a flak jacket. Use manual aim to
fire at the head. When the aiming cursor is targeted on the head, the words "Head Shot"
appear above the target.

Default: Fire a weapon without aiming. This is the least accurate type of firing, but also
the fastest. Use this when you are in a real jam and need to get a shot off immediatly.
Otherwise, use teh other target modes.


When using a sniper rifle, press and hold the L1 button to enter Sniper Mode and then use
the d-pad to zero in on a target. A sniper scope offers the highest precision shot
placement possible. A display within the scope tells the shooter exactly what part of the
body the shot will hit. If the sniper rifle is equiped with a Nightvision IR scope, it
can detect body heat, making hidden enemies visible. (Use the triangle and circle buttons
the zoom the scope in and out).


When a weapon runs out of ammo, you hear the hammer click on an empty chamber and the
ammo counter at the bottom right of the screen displays zero. The agent will automtically
reload if he or she is holding additional ammo clips.
-For the quickest reloads, press the triangle button to manually kick out the empty
and reload.
-Each weapon has a limited amount of ammo. Familiarize yourself with the weapons by
studying the Weapons section.
-Always check downed enemies for ammo (or a weapon) before moving on.
-Look for weapon boxes in every location. When you find ammo, it will be identified
on screen and added to your inventory.

2. Press the L2 or R2 button to highlight a new weapon.
3. Release the SELECT button.

targeting modes are available while firing from this position.
