The Guns Of Tharsis is the only Free Fire Zone liberation mission in Red Faction: Guerrilla, where the Red Faction must traverse the zone by dodging the gun blasts, among side Alec Mason who needs to reach the EDF Artillery Base in order to destroy three main power cores which powers up the guns, allowing the Red Faction to move into Eos sector.

Briefing Edit

Hugo Davies: Welcome to D-Day, Mason. Parker, Dust and Oasis are now free of EDF control. These guns are all that stand between us and Eos. Colonel Broga's data has exposed gaps in their artillery coverage. We've plotted multiple lines of attack to exploit them. Here's your path, Mason. Follow these waypoints and don't wander off. The odds are against us, and a lot of people won't be coming back. But if we can't silence those guns, the fight for Mars is over.

Walkthrough Edit

First off drive your vehicle to the rendezvous point where you'll meet up with three Red Faction drivers. Join them and traverse the zone by following each yellow waypoint without being hit by other drivers that could block your way and the gun blasts rain.


Once you reached the bridge you'll have to destroy three power cores with explosives or rockets located within the EDF Artillery Base. Each building will be heavily guarded so its the best way to fly through each building and killing every EDF soldier in your way. When all the power cores are destroyed, the mission is complete and the sector is liberated.

Dialogue Edit


  • RF Commander: Mason, get in position. You need to rendezvous with that group ahead of you.
  • RF Commander: We've got to make it through that zone. It's our only chance.

After Meeting Up with the Group

  • RF Commander: Follow the path on your map. You wander off and those guns will blow you to pieces.
  • RF Commander: Get to the next waypoint as fast as you can. The longer you'll take, the more time they have to target you.

Outcome Edit
