Stats & Methods


Methods for eliminating the Goons

Customs, Lighthouse, Woods, Shoreline

Customs

To effectively eliminate the goons located on the Customs map, it's crucial to carefully consider your loadout. Your strategy will likely depend on your spawn location, and may involve positioning yourself far back with a medium to long range scope. The goons typically spawn in or around the Stronghold area, so if you spawn on the Crossroads side, your best bet is to identify and track Knight, Birdeye, and Bigpipe by sight or sound. Once they start chasing you, lure them to the Medical building (aka Crackhouse), and defend yourself from the second floor. Wait for the goons to attempt to enter the building, then take them out one by one. Once they're all eliminated, extract safely.

On the other hand, if you spawn on the ZB-1011 side of Stronghold, your first step should be to verify the location of the goons. If you spot them, you can either run inside Stronghold and defend from the Food room on the first floor, or stay back near Old Gas for cover while eliminating them. If possible, take refuge inside the Train Cart located just outside of Stronghold and defend from there. With these tactics in mind, you'll have a much better chance of success in eliminating the goons and completing your mission.

Lighthouse

For successful elimination of the Goons on the Lighthouse map, a Red Dot sight is sufficient for your loadout. The Goons can spawn either inside the Blue Chalets or the Water Treatment Plant.

If you wish to eliminate the Goons near the Blue Chalets, it is safer to approach from the Northeast side where you can take advantage of the rocks and have a good vantage point. This allows you to stay safe and pick off each of the Goons.

If you plan to take down the Goons in the Water Treatment Plant, you need to clear a safe path to where the Goons spawn by taking out the gunners that sit on the roof of all 3 buildings. The Goons can be seen in or around building 2, which is the center building in the Water Treatment compound. Following these steps should help you effectively eliminate the Goons on this map.

Woods

To effectively eliminate the goons on the Woods map, the first step is to carefully consider your loadout. A red dot or medium range scope may be necessary for success. One option is to approach the Scav Bunker from the northeast side, using the shipping containers as cover and listening for callouts from the goons after tossing a grenade. This allows you to take out each of the goons while peeking from behind cover.

Another effective tactic is to bring a medium range scope and approach the Scav Bunker from the southwest side, just south of Scav Lake. From this position, which is approximately 75 meters away from the Radio Tower in the Scav Bunker, use the rocks as cover and eliminate at least one goon before taking cover behind the rocks. Wait for the remaining two goons to come to you and take them down.

If Birdeye doesn't push you, your best option for locating him is to run straight to the Scav Bunker and go down the stairs. This will prompt him to follow you, at which point you can defend the doorway and eliminate him when he enters. Overall, attempting to run inside the Scav Bunker is your best bet for successfully eliminating the goons.

Shoreline

To effectively eliminate the goons on the Shoreline map, it's crucial to have a higher caliber rifle with a scope in your loadout. For nighttime, a thermal scope is recommended. The best approach for eliminating the goons is to come from the south side (coastline side) and climb vertically onto the Weather Station Hill through a small gap between two rocks. It's important to wait a couple of seconds before running up the hill to bait the goons into chasing you from the southwest side. Once they've spotted you, run back down the gap, and the goons will be stuck at the top. This will allow you to easily take them out one by one.

Another option is to use a thermal scope during nighttime Shoreline and approach from the northeast side. This will likely allow you to spot all the goons.

Regardless of the approach, the goal is to run inside the Weather Station building. The goons will likely spot you and chase you into the building. Once inside, defend the front door and eliminate the goons one by one. Overall, having a higher caliber rifle with a scope and utilizing the terrain to your advantage is key to success in eliminating the goons on the Shoreline map.
