Infiltrating Tidis Warehouse
After finding all Weapon Crates, you will receive a call from Tobias asking you to meet at his shop. It is generally a good idea to visit his shop since you would be able to restock on ammo and weapons.
Why you want to do that? Because this is easily the most difficult battle you will encounter in the game.
After restocking your weapons, you need to infiltrate the Tidis Warehouse.
After infiltrating the warehouse, you will have to survive three waves of enemies; each containing Veterans, Marksmen, Enforcers, Elite, and bosses.
Now since everyone has his/her own distinctive playstyle, it’s totally upto you to approach this in any way you want. It is, however, generally a good idea to snipe from the outskirts of the area followed by heading inside.
You should also consider running the upper floors with a shotgun to clear the area of Marksmen before taking out the ground foes.
You should save your explosives for Enforcers that would appear in the end. Make sure to aim at many of the explosive objects lying in the area to help you out.
Furthermore, it is okay to see from where enemies appear and then plan your moves accordingly. Placing a couple of I.E.Ds at different locations is a good idea.
Once you have taken out everyone, you will receive a call from Tobias and the mission will conclude.
