NOD 07: Salvage Operation
Salvage Operation

With Hassan and the traitorous portions of the Brotherhood dealt with, and the GDI being beaten back from Kane's headquarters from the First Tiberium War, it was time to retrieve the precious alien artifacts in a bid to use their technology to gain an advantage against the Global Defense Initiative once and for all... but Vega, a foolhardy commander within the Brotherhood, decided to hijack the alien ship carrying such secrets. It is now up to Commander Slavik to find and retrieve the lost artifacts.

The crash site appears to be just south-west of Lubbock, Texas

Location: South-west of Lubbock, Texas, USA
Objective: Locate the crashed UFO and retrieve Kane's artifacts.

Briefing: The alien craft is located in this region. FIND IT! The area is infested with GDI, so stealth would be to your advantage. Once the craft is located get an engineer inside to retrieve the Tacitus. And, should you encounter Vega's forces - consider them expendable.

Author's note: Speedrunning at its best.
