Part 48: FS NOD 04: Mutant ExterminationFS NOD 04: Mutant Extermination
NOD's inner circle continues to bicker and argue over who should lead the fractured of the Brotherhood. As accusation are placed, CABAL reveals himself as the mastermind behind several of NOD's latest actions against both the GDI and the Forgotten. As communications break down due to a supposed Ion Storm, CABAL informs us that he wishes to recover the Tacitus. Attack the mutants, destroy them, and recover his prized possession.
Location: Unknown, Unknown
Objective: Destroy all Mutant forces and recover the Tacitus
Briefing: The mutant vermin have once again made themselves known to us. They have stolen the Tacitus that I...we have worked so hard to obtain. If Kane's vision is to be fulfilled, we must find the mutant encampment and recover the Tacitus. Once it is safely removed, terminate any mutants who decide to remain in the area. Perhaps this will teach them not to interfere with us ever again. DATA LINK CLOSED.
Author's note: I love this map for the subtle options you have in attacking the enemy, and the only negative has to be the mission critical unit switching sides when discovered, which screws over an unknowing player.
