Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist – Paladin Upgrades

This entry is part 6 of 10 in the series Splinter Cell: Blacklist

This is a overview of the upgrades you can buy for the Paladin in Blacklist. You need to complete all of these to earn the C&C Optimized Achievement / Trophy. There are a total of 20 points worth of upgrades and you need to purchase the previous levels in order to see what you are going for next. These provide bonuses in the form of faster regen or new weapons or better radar. Each level 1 upgrade is worth 1 point and each level 2 upgrade is worth 2 points. There are a total of 13 upgrades.

The Holding Cell is unlocked after completing the first mission (Safehouse). The Holding Cell upgrades are what the game means when it tells you, you need to find an arms dealer.

You need a total of $1,378,000 to complete the Paladin. Fully upgrading the Paladin is the FIRST thing you should do in Blacklist. The multiplier you get will make money next to worthless since you will be earning an easy 400k+ per mission.

C&C Optimized – 20gs – Paladin fully upgraded

Splinter Cell: Blacklist – Tactical Style Guide (Ghost, Panther, Assault)

This entry is part 7 of 10 in the series Splinter Cell: Blacklist

This is a sortable, searchable table that shows you the number of collectibles and the number of points you need to master each style in every mission of Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Note that the Mastery will reset each time you play a mission. Meaning if I was Master Ghost and replayed to get Master Panther my Ghost would clear and Panther would take its place. So make sure to get all 7 in a row if you are going to the achievements and then switch to the next Tactical Style.

Swaggers Fails

This is a video series where Swaggers tries to finish a challenge or achievement he has yet to accomplish. Watch the full commentated attempt.

More Info

The Gone Dark missions are small side missions that take place completely in the SMI map interface. A orange icon will show up and you will have 24 hours to complete it. You start by reading a description and then from that description try to locate the next spot on the map. Continue until the last part and you will have a choice to make. Pick the correct option (which costs you money to select) and you will get an extra .5 to your modifier which is HUGE. (The modifier is applied to your earnings at the end of a mission.) After the break you can check all the Gone Dark missions we have found so far. If you know of one we missed please comment so we can add it to the list.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist – Daily and Weekly Challenges

This entry is part 9 of 10 in the series Splinter Cell: Blacklist


Due to the fact that the SMI is down almost every other day and the ease of the challenges we will no longer be updating this list. We will still continue to map out the latest Gone Dark missions (Again, when the SMI is actually up.) The daily and weekly challenges are listed on the ShadowNet website but are only doable if they show up on the SMI in your game.

I will do my best to keep this updated with what is currently the Daily & Weekly Challenges for ShadowNET. I will also try to add some tactics or commentary if any of the challenges require it. If I miss something, or don’t get to it before one of you does, please add the latest Daily in the comments below.

NOTE: Even if the website is updated with the most recent challenges, if the SMI is not connecting to the main UbiSoft servers, then they will not register in your game.
