In the PC version of Splinter Cell: Double Agent, how can you use the rewards that you receive after each mission? For example, the shotgun attachment, or the colored night vision?

My list shows that the rewards are there, but I can not figure out how to use them.


The unlocks rewarded at the end of each mission are intended to be used throughout later missions, and should be fairly straight forward to select.

Since I played this game on console, I reference an online copy of the game manual, intended for the Steam version of the game.

How to equip equipment and weapons

To access the inventory of weapons and gadgets, press and hold the inventory key. Use the mouse or the directional keys to select the desired piece of equipment; release the inventory key to confirm. Press E to equip or de-equip the selected weapon.

If you can see the equipment in this inventory list, you have it unlocked, and should be able to freely access it. If you are still having problems selecting it, it is possible that you are experiencing a bug or a glitch.

How to equip vision goggles

You have access to three differant vision modifiers in the game, one of which is night vision. IIRC, wave vision appears in colour, and unlocks at a later point in the game. It is possible that by "colored night vision", you are actually referring to thermal. Regardless, switching between these options is pretty straight forward.

  • Heat Vision: Press number key 2 to activate heat vision.
  • Night Vision: Press number key 1 to activate night vision.
  • Wave Vision: Press number key 3 to activate wave vision, a mode that allows Sam to quickly spot all electricity-using objects.
  • None of the items that I have unlocked are present in my inventory for my next mission. What am I doing wrong ? – Heidi Oct 18 '15 at 12:47
  • @Heidi; If they are not present in your inventory, under what list are they showing up? – user106385 Oct 18 '15 at 13:43
  • They just show up after each mission ends. I earn them but can't use them. – Heidi Oct 18 '15 at 14:11
  • @Heidi, this is a fairly old game, as far as my collection goes. When I have the time to set up my old 360, I'll give it another play, and see if I can work out anything – user106385 Oct 22 '15 at 11:19
