A winch is a mechanical device that is used to pull in and pull out wire, rope or cables with the opposite end typically attached to something. A winch can be manual, typically adjusted with a handle or automatically adjusted via electronic means.

Gameplay Edit

The winch could be used to attach a hook clip to various environmental surfaces, such as pipes, allowing him to 'hang' in a vertical position and adjust the wind of the winch. Utilizing the winch, the player could slowly ascend or descend without forcing them to touch the ground.

History Edit

2008: Red Mercury Plot Edit

Shortly before and during Sam Fisher's undercover operation in John Brown's Army during the Red Mercury Plot in 2008, he used a winch that was attached to a small, rectangular device fitted to the back of his uniform.
