I'm so, SO stuck on the Doppelganger mission.
Find an alternate route into the dock it says. This path is too dangerous Jason says.

I'm literally so stuck it hurts. I've seen that mission failed screen about 20 times now. No matter how I distract the guards there's always one guy looking in my direction. I've tried throwing rocks at every combination of objects from every direction I can think of and someone always notices me.

There was one time where I reached the dock just milliseconds before I was seen, hence my checkpoint was set there but I closed the game down. I felt dirty for essentially having found an "exploit".

I'm stressed, I can't lie. The rock throwing mechanic just seems so broken in this game and in fact I've hardly used the sneak game mechanic anywhere in Far Cry 3 "successfully".

Does anyone have any advice at all? This part is making me tear my hair out. Damnit.

Thanks in advance.

There's an online walkthrough I had to follow. I'm kind of bad at stealth, but I'm actually surprised at how effective rock throwing can be. Last night I cleared out my first base using only stealth takedowns, with only two arrows fired.

If you want the link, I can look it up tonight.

I snuck right under the ramp after distracting the guys with some rocks, personally cant believe it worked :/ but check the walkthrough Nangleator has to offer, it should help you get passed no problem.

I pass the entire game without this kind of problems, have you install the patches? I don't have "the rock problem". Check the official site and see the download section, maybe you find a solution.

Make sure you're not actually going down the main ramp section towards the two flamethrowers, there is a path to the far left which takes you behind most guards. It's then a case of walking/crouching under the main ramp and right past the flamethrower into the dock area where you can climb down the ladder to get into the water.

You shouldn't actually need to throw any rocks in this instance, as crouching works perfectly.

I'm also stuck on this mission, though I manage to fail far faster than the OP. I just can't do stealthing in tight environments. So my question is: is there any exploit I could use to not make the game register when I takedown all the guards (because that I can most certainly do without being spotted).

Not sure about the exploit, but have you tried turning down your game difficulty?

Maybe this will help:

This mission is the worst. I just threw a rock and sprinted for the exit. Checkpoints ♥♥♥♥ing rule.

I found it helped to die right after every checkpoint. That way the enemies reset their behaviours. Most of the time, you can just follow them around as they don't look behind when they are unaware. Throwing too many rocks just seems to stir them up too much.

It is a crummy mission, but there's always some crummy missions in a Fry Cry/Crysis game.

I was so extremely ♥♥♥♥ing stuck just like you, but follow this walkthrough and you should make it

Are you ♥♥♥♥ing kidding me. I have been getting so ♥♥♥♥ed at this mission. I've been throwing rocks everywhere just like OP. I read this and I decided to try this just for the heck of it and it worked the first time.

All of my wut.

all you gotta do is lead him back in the cave you came from lol.

What really bothers me about the rock throwing thing is that it somehow scares them so much it makes them step back.
