Experienced sniper Beckett and his spotter Papich are take out a rebel leader in the jungle. They wait for night to fall to get picked up by a helicopter but they do not get picked up until daylight appears. As they are making a break for the helicopter Papich gets shot but Beckett takes his body to the helicopter and starts blaming the CO of the helicopter for the death of his spotter. Later on Beckett gets a new partner named Miller. They however do not get along at all at first. Mostly because Miller is a Swat team sniper with no jungle experience, in other words he is a civilian. As they truck through the jungle on a mission to get a rebel general, they encounter some natives who agree to help them get past the rebel guerrillas if they would do something for them. In order to receive help from the natives they have to eliminate an ex CIA torture master who recently injured their leader. Beckett sees this as an opportunity and agrees to help the natives. He tells Miller that he will be the one taking the shot since he skeptical about his skills. When the time comes however, Miller does not make the shot but instead takes a warning shot which starts a firefight. This costs them the help from the natives and one of the native's lives. As they continue to complete their mission they find that they are being followed and the only other person that could help them with more intel on their target has been killed. Beckett leaves some trash being for the person following them and hides while Miller is no longer alert and fast asleep and kills the same person who had killed Papich. Because Miller realizes that he was bait this creates more hostility between the two men. When they get to the target they have a firefight between themselves which ends up getting Beckett captured by the rebels. Miller eventually saves Beckett also getting is first confirmed kill. Together they leave with a better understanding of each other.
