Follow Sgt. Foley out of the building and along the dark streets littered with debris from the EMP. With no communications, you find a lone soldier who tells you to advance to Whiskey Hotel where a task force is being assembled.

Push into the abandoned building where you will encounter enemies on the first floor.

TIP: Use the flashbangs to blind them, making them much easier to deal with.

Now inside the bunker, you and the squad are commanded to make your way to Whiskey Hotel. Once outside the bunker, use the uneven terrain to stay out of cover from the unrelenting machine gunfire coming from the left flank.

TIP: Clear out the bottom floor of the building by using the grenade launcher equipped to the M4.

Now inside the White House, the fight begins to retake the building. Work your way through the rooms and take down any enemies that attempt to prevent your progress through the building.
