You may want to know how to take down Shadow Company soldiers, as it's an objective that comes as part of the Non-Discriminatory Crown tier-one faction mission. MW2 DMZ has plenty of different missions that players can take part in across the game's two maps, allowing you to earn XP and blueprint rewards that count toward your overall level.

If you're looking for a little help with the mission, we've got you covered.

How to find them

The two tasks for this mission are to kill 8 Al-Qatala soldiers and kill 5 Shadow Company soldiers.

While it specifies that you need to do this in one deployment, you don't actually need to, meaning you can finish both objectives across both maps. The first objective of killing 8 Al-Qatala soldiers will be pretty easy if you load into Al Mazrah, as these are the main AI enemies you'll find on this map at any POI.

For the objective of killing 5 Shadow Company soldiers, you can still do this on Al Mazrah, but it's much harder as they don't appear commonly. The only consistent location you can find these soldiers is inside the Sattiq Cave Complex (entrance marked above), but this is a tough area to fight through. 

We instead suggest that you visit Ashika Island for the second objective, as Shadow Company soldiers are the main enemy type, meaning you just need to explore a random POI for a few minutes to kill five of them.

Once you've ticked off the second objective, exfiltrate from the map, and you will have completed the Non-Discriminatory Crown mission, netting you your rewards.
