Part 33: NOD 15: Capture Jake McNeil

NOD 15: Capture Jake McNeil
Capture Jake McNeil

With GDI's new walking mech prototype destroyed, production is sure to be experiencing a significant setback in production. NOD forces should no longer fear having to encounter such a potent weapon! The Brotherhood's attention can now turn on finalizing Kane's plans. While they are still a secret to all but himself, the first stage is to destroy GDI's Hammerfest base. To do this, CABAL has located the whereabouts of one of its personnel... Jake McNeil, brother of Commander McNeil. He is to be captured and brought back for interrogation. Failure is not an option!

I'm basically just taking a stab in the dark and assuming its Arjeplog, Sweden or in the vicinity thereof.

Location: In the area of Arjeplog, Sweden.
Objective: Capture Jake McNeil and evacuate him.

Briefing: Jake McNeil, brother of one of GDI's commanders, will be leading an inspection tour to a small GDI outpost in this area. His knowledge of GDI activities could be of great benefit to Nod's cause. Capture the GDI outpost with engineers, then disguise the base as GDI's and wait for Jake to make his inspection. When the signal is given, use the Toxin soldiers provided to "persuade" Jake to join Nod's forces. Once he is under our influence, EVAC him at the designated site. Be very careful not to alert GDI until we are ready to strike. If they detect Nod forces in the area, they will surely try to evacuate Jake. If GDI is alerted, be sure to get to Jake before he can leave the area.

Author's note: Another interesting level that I cannot hate, but feel it has a lot of map space that you will never see or enjoy. Despite that, I have a hard time finding fault with the mission itself... LoS issues aside.
