The Lincoln Tunnel Checkpoint is the first Security main mission in Tom Clancy's The Division.
Lincoln Tunnel Checkpoint is the one of the supply base where the JTF can retrieve food, medicines and weapons and it is main supply base as this led to the outside of Manhattan. However, the Checkpoint is besieged by Finch, the leader of the rioters and his armed and veteran gang as they have explosive weapons, machine gunners and several snipers trained by Finch, who possibly is ex-military. Captain Roy Benitez is in the checkpoint and the rioters threaten to destroy the floodgate which cut the supply line so the agent is tasked to defeat Finch's gang of rioters, secure the supply line with the outside and bring Roy Benitez back to Base of Operations.

The mission starts by moving past the first set of jammed cars and clearing out a couple of groups of Rioter mobs. This is likely to be your first encounter with the sniper type of Rioter.
At the tunnel entrance encounter, there are Rioters on the ground and snipers on top of a raised signage area. If you clear out these snipers and steal their position, it will be a lot easier to deal with the others (if you use an assault rifle or marksman rifle).
You then have to take out a couple of Rioters trying to blow up the floodgate which is simple, the defend the JTF trooper who is defusing the bomb. Rioters will come down the tunnel to attack. You can climb on top of the truck which is a good place to defend from. Be careful of veteran mobs who will try to light up the JTF with machine guns and need to be taken out quickly.
After this, you meet Benitez and walk into a garage area, where you get attacked again. The garage is located at the entrance of the tunnel and this is where the final fight takes place for this mission.
You will encounter several snipers perched on that same signage from earlier along with normal rioters scattered along the bottom. Finch will be on top of a Semi Trailer towards the rear of the play area, be sure to hang back out of his range due to his rifle dealing devastating amounts of damage. Once you've cleared the normal rioters and low level snipers you are left with Finch and an armored LMG rioter. Remain out of range of Finch (if he starts to shoot at you stick to cover and he will back off after a few shots as long as you are out of range). Once you have taken out the LMG Rioter, use "cover to cover" to get as close as possible to Finch, his rifle does a good amount of damage and he has a lot of armor. Fire on him every chance you get but immediately take cover when he comes up to aim. Once he is down, you will receive word from Benitez that the tunnel is now under full JTF control and he will be returning to the operation center.
