When loading into the Pre-Game session, you will spawn in the Ready Room. This room is where all missions are launched to get your feet into the field!

To select the raid mission, approach the commander’s desk at the front of the room to open the Mission Selector. Inside this selector you will see eight(8) individual locations to choose from. Six(6) of the eight(8) locations are developed locations that are able to be experienced in the Ready or Not universe.

These locations are as followed:

  • 213 Park Homes (Twisted Nerve) @ 0330 – 3:30 A.M.
  • The detectives have been following a new lead to locate source of methamphetamine storage in Los Suenos, tracing a potential “affordable housing” development in 213 Park
  • 4U Gas Station (Thank You, Come Again) @ 2300 – 11:00 P.M.
  • Respond to a robbery gone bad. Multiple civilians are inside, as local police are on-scene. The assailants are juveniles and expectedly skittish.
  • Wenderly Hills Hotel (Checkin’ In) @ 1230 – 12:30 P.M.
  • D Platoon are to deploy on-site and clear the key floors of this hotel. Multiple civilians inside. Very dangerous, deceptive suspects. Be on your a-game.

Mission Types – Ready or Not The Operators Tactical Handbook

The Operators Tactical Handbook
The Operators Tactical Handbook

Ready or Not currently features five(5) different operational mission styles. The styles are listed below:

  • Barricaded Suspects – Normal Difficulty
  • Your team’s number one priority is rescuing civilians, and detaining suspects. Rules of engagement are strict. Don’t kill unless an officer or a civilian is threatened.
  • Raid – Hard Difficulty
  • The suspects are highly dangerous. They will not be so easy to give up, and your ROE has been loosened as a result. Prepare for long engagements and a lot of firefights. Practice well beforehand.
  • Active Shooter – Hard Difficulty
  • A gunman roams the halls, hunting down civilians and killing them in an insane frenzy. Take this threat out before too many innocent lives are lost.
  • Bomb Threat – Very Hard Difficulty
  • A bomb threat has been called in. Highest priority is disabling the explosives before the time runs out. Second highest priority is rescuing all of the civilians and taking out the suspects. Good luck, you’ll need it.
  • Hostage Rescue – Insane Difficulty
  • Suspects have taken a room of civilians hostage. It’s up to you to locate them quietly, establish a strategy, and execute quickly. The lives of innocent people depend on you.

NOTE: Not all mission types above are currently available for each location described above. The only location where all mission types are available is the 4U Gas Station

Operation Preparation

Operation Preparation

Before entering any operation, it is crucial that you are dressed for the mission type selected. There are currently two locations to customize your officer and gear at.

The first location is the Locker Room to the right of the Ready Room area.

The second location is down the stairs to the left of the Ready Room on the first red carpet before the Shooting Range.

Long Tactical Equipment

The Long Tactical Equipment are complementary equipment to the Tactical Devices, which allow potentially smoother and safer entry into a room or area.

Mirrorgun

A wanded device that allows the user to view under and above doors, as well as around corners.

Breaching Shotgun

A breaching tool utilized to blow locks off from doors, forcing the door to swing open.

Ballistic Shield

A shield capable of stopping the majority of bullet calibers, rendering the user of the shield safe within a 3 foot wall of where the shield covers.

Rescue Shield – Not Available

A full size deployable shield that covers the entirety of the user, which utilizes wheels to move the shield wall within the operation area.

Battering Ram

A hardened steel ram used to break open doors via manual force from the operator.

Gear – Armor and Headwear

Armor

Light Armor

Light armor provides the carrier protection from most small arms calibers and protects the front and rear upper body of the wearer. Is the least movement restrictive.

Heavy Armor

Heavy Armor provides superior protection from small and heavy calibers and protects the entire front and rear torso of the wearer and partially protects the arms and legs. Is the most movement restrictive, slowing the wearer down.

Headwear

NVGs

Night Vision Goggles that allow the wearer to see well within low-light areas and allow the wearer to see IR Markers and Lasers.

CBRN Riot Gasmask

A device which creates a firm seal around the wearer’s face, which also filters air and remove any irritants such as CS or CN Chemicals.

Anti-Flash Goggles

Scratch Resistant Goggles that are designed to help mitigate bright-lights

Ballistic Facemask

A facemask capable of stopping most small-arms projectiles as well as less-lethal munitions such as Beanbags.

Grenades

Flashbang

A device that is capable of emitting a bright flash and disorients any nearby individuals through its loud bang.

CS Gas

A grenade that is filled with CS Gas, used to fill a small area with the irritant, causing nearby individuals to have difficulty breathing, blurred vision, and burning sensations.

Honing Your Skills – Ready or Not The Operators Tactical Handbook

In Ready or Not, its crucial you understand how your weapon system works before entering the operation. To do this, you can practice your shooting and recoil control at the Shooting Range, or practice a mock operation through the Killhouse located in the center of the Pre-Game area.

The Shooting Range

The Operators Tactical Handbook
The Operators Tactical Handbook

The Shooting Range is located directly to the right from the downstairs weapon customization table and features a variety of targets to shoot. This range currently features targets both in and out of cover, as well as a single target utilizing a hostage target on the far right side.

Unfortunately, due to the distance, you may not be able to see where exactly your rounds are hitting. However, it is always in good practice to aim for the center mass or largest target of the object you are aiming at.

The Operators Tactical Handbook
The Operators Tactical Handbook

Take this target for example. As you can see, there are inner and outer rings representing a “Point System” in which your shots land on the target. You always want to shoot for the center mass of the target, represented by the red filled ring. This is because this section of the target has a lesser margin of error, allowing you to quickly eliminate the threat, if the target is presumably a threat.

Also, notice how this target does not have any headshot indicators. This is because aiming for the head of the target provides the highest margin of error. Missing a headshot could ultimately lead to you and your officers becoming injured throughout the operation. Additionally, shooting a suspect in the head does ultimately stop the threat, but this is considered to be a killshot. Keep that in mind when engaging suspects as killing the suspects can affect your final score at the end of your operation.

The Kill-House

The Operators Tactical Handbook
The Operators Tactical Handbook

The Kill-House is in my opinion, the best place to hone your skills either in a solo environment or with a team. This section of the Pre-Game area brings you a rough example of what you may experience while in the operation. This section will place you against locked doors, long hallways, with several targets place around the area. Take the time to use this area to perfect your entries into unknown rooms, wanding and breaching doors, and practicing shot placement while flowing (will be discussed later).

To enter the killhouse, utilize the door to the left of the Weapon Customization table.

Door Interactions

In Ready or Not, the majority of your interactions before entering any area will be doors. Doors can pose a threat as we are unsure what lies behind them. Below I have listed how you can interact with the doors you encounter in Ready or Not

The Operators Tactical Handbook
The Operators Tactical Handbook

Blue Section

In this section, we are able to open the door completely in one entire motion.

Red Section

In this section, we can peek the door. This allows us to open the door just enough to throw any grenades inside and to disarm any traps near the bottom of the door. This section is also where you would aim the breaching shotgun to break open the locks of doors or to utilize the lockpick tool to unlock the door quietly.

Black Section

In this section, we are able to kick the door open or utilize the battering ram in hand. When kicking open a door, depending on the door’s material, you may have to kick the door more than once. When using a battering ram, you will only need to impact the door once.

Purple Section

This section is primarily used for the wanding tool. While holding the wanding tool and interacting with the bottom of the door, the operator can see into the other room. Not all doors can be wanded however. Some doors may sit too low to the ground, resulting in the wand not being usable.
