Yes, I realize I should have created a manual save somewhere in the level, but I was *very* engrossed in the game & forgot to.

Level: Moscow Embassy
Background: Veteran
Difficulty Level: Hard
Handler: Mina & SIE
Intel Purchased: All
Entry method to the Embassy: Used the Veteran dialog option to bluff my way in & make the Embassy guards assist me.

Went through the entire level without issues & all the checkpoints were fine, right up until the very last one where you have to protect Surkov.

I approached the waypoint on the ground floor, where it states he's going outside, but will need your assistance to survive. Since I purchased the sniper rifle dead drop, I ran upstairs to get onto the rifle & try to take out the enemies using that. Unfortunately Surkov died part way into the mission & it reset to the last checkpoint the game created.

Unfortunately, the checkpoint was not the one on the lower level, but rather was with me outside the door leading to the roof & Surkov had vanished from the lower level. It still said I needed to meet up with him again & had the waypoint downstairs in front of the doors, but he was gone & could not be located. The final protection mission could not be triggered by any method I was aware of.

I believe this is related to another bug that happens in the Embassy. If you bluff your way in using the Veteran method & then use the door to exit onto the roof, all the Embassy guards suddenly turn hostile towards you & start attacking you. There seems to be an issue with the indoor/outdoor transition when using that doorway at any point during the Embassy mission.

If necessary, I can attempt to reproduce the issue again & pull it off of my XBOX360 using a USB stick in order to provide a copy of the save game for debugging.

Have you tried loading the save from the load game menu instead of ingame using the load last save?

That seemed to help some issues with dissapearing foes at least.

For the second; where you spotted or heard by the embassy guard outside there? He doesn't turn friendly along with the other guards (which may or may not be intended behavior)...

I only had the automatic checkpoint save & tried loading it from the menu, exiting to the main menu & hitting resume, & quitting to the dashboard & coming back into the game from there. None of them made him respawn downstairs.

Also, the guard on the roof was 100% friendly when I went out there after it started the mission to protect Surkov, so he's only "hostile" before then for whatever reason. I'm guessing it's a minor oversight more than "functioning as intended".

PS: I hate this mission on hard...
