About David Knight

David Knight - Army of Two: The 40th Day
David Knight has been an avid gamer since the days of the Atari 2600 and Commodore 64. His first foray into the gaming industry came in 1995, as a scenario designer for SSI's WWII strategy game Steel Panthers. As online gaming communities sprung up across the Web, David lent his enthusiasm and design skills to many fan sites. In 1998 he co-founded and co-hosted Game Waves, a weekly webcast featuring industry news and game reviews. David's involvement with Prima Games began in the late 90s as a technical editor. After co-authoring a couple of guides with his brother Michael, David authored his first solo game guide in 2002 for Rollercoaster Tycoon 2. Since then he's written more than a dozen guides for Prima Games, including books for Battlefield 1942, Star Wars Battlefront, and SWAT 4.

About the Book

Shanghai is under attack. It’s unclear who’s attacking the city or why, but Salem and Rios are caught in the cross fire. Dreams of a big payday are put on the back burner as they attempt to escape the city and survive the 40th day.
 
Included in T.W.O. Training are discussions on the new co-op actions, including the Mock Surrender, Quick Draw, and hostage taking, plus the new Camaraderie and Morality systems. Learn to work together and use these actions to maintain a tactical edge throughout the campaign.
 
Study the T.W.O. Arsenal chapter for a detailed description of each weapon and weapon part, including full stats, costs, and customization options.
 
Throughout the course of the campaign, Salem and Rios are confronted by several hostile units, eager to halt their escape from the city. The Opposing Forces chapter prepares you for these inevitable encounters, pointing out each enemy’s strengths and weaknesses.
 
The Campaign chapter offers step-by step instructions for making it out of Shanghai alive. Included are detailed maps that show the locations of cash drops, radios, supply crates, Maneki Neko Cats, and weapon parts. Co-op tactics are also discussed, offering alternative solutions when tackling the campaign with a friend.
 
Reference the Appendix of tables to compare stats for the various weapons and weapon parts. All Xbox 360 Achievements and PS3 Trophies are also revealed here.
 
The Multiplayer chapter contains tips and tactics for each game mode and includes labeled maps that reveal all spawn locations, special weapon pick-ups, and Control and Warzone objectives. Put this info to use when taking the battle online!
 
Check out a preview of the debut issue of the Army of Two comic book at the back of this guide. The first story arc, Across the Border, takes place after the events of the first game but before the invasion of Shanghai, as Salem and Rios get caught up in a Mexican drug war.
