Splinter Cell: Double Agent

by Erenthal

Part 6: JBA HQ 2


Briefing: Having returned from Shanghai with Dr. Aswat's notes and the material Emile bought from him, Sam must determine the real agenda behind the JBA's actions.


Okay, it's finally here. We're back in New York, and doing some more Ghosting. Tense mission this, and pretty good.


Primary objectives: posted:

(NSA) Scan blueprints in Emile's safe:

The blueprints for the red mercury device are most likely located in Emile's office. Break in and find those blueprints, then scan them in for transmission. That will give us a good idea of the capablities of the device he's building.

(JBA) Assemble mines for Kinshasa:

Use the micro-manipulators in the workshop area of the compound to assemble the mines that you'll be taking to Kinshasa as part of a weapons shipment.

(NSA) Record voice to access locks:

In order to access Emile's office you will need to pass through one of the voice security locks in the compound. It will be necessary to use the laser mic to record a voice from one of the main JBA members to pass through the security lock and reach Emile's office.

New gameplay:

Mine assembly! Yes, everyone loves this part. Lower the detonator with the fire-button, correct the deviations with the movement keys. Don't let the detonator touch anything but the center slot. You've got 10 mines to do, and 15 detonators, so you've got some wiggleroom at least.

To: Emile Dufraisne
Date 11-Feb-2008
Subject: Frequency detonators

Emile, I just wanted to confirm the specs you wanted on the detonator for the Cozumel bomb. We're talking a different system than the one for the big boys, right? You want something that you can detonate with your cell phone regardless of distance. Let me know if I'm on the right track.


From: Emile Dufraisne
To: Enrica Villablanca
Date: 2008-02-11
Subject: RE: Frequency detonators

Enrica, you are absolutely correct. The other devices will be triggered at much closer range, so we won't need the frequency detonator. The actual bomb triggers will be similar, but a different activation system is needed so we don't risk you pulling the pin out of that grenade, so to speak. So if you can make sure we have a clean frequency for the detonation signal for this one bomb, I will be quite satisfied.

Subject: Red Mercury

Jamie, please confirm for me that we are on schedule with the preperation of the red mercury for your friend Mr. Fisher's little adventure in Cozumel?

Subject: RE: Red Mercury

Everything's cool boss. We'll have enough of the stuff ready to blow up half of Mexico if we need to. So don't worry. Me and Sam, we've got the front end and the back end both covered.

To: Emile Dufraisne

Subject: RE: Send me your assessment

OK, Emile, here's the real deal on the red mercury. Most people think the stuff is a myth, you know, but it's plenty real and it's going to do the job for us. The stuff is what they call ballotechnic, which basically means that it makes a goddamned big boom.

Put enough of it in one place, and you'll get something strong enough to trigger the core of a fusion bomb, which makes an even bigger bang. And the good news is that the stuff works even better than we expected, which means that we can use less and get the same result, which will let us get the bombs on line faster than we thought. So that ought to put a smile on your face.

Subject: Favor

Hey Emile - if you need to disable the bomb remotely in an emergency, you can find the code on the computer in my workshop. The keypad code is 1337.

Subject: RE: Shooting range scores

Now that's more like it. This week's top score at the firing range goes to Ms. Villablanca, who nailed a 92. That's a 3 point jump, and that's what I like to see. Do it again next week, and we'll really have something to talk about.

Subject: Mine assembly

Attention, everyone. We're finally going to get the mine assembly operation in high gear. The micro-manipulation device we've needed to assemble them is here and functional and we can start using it according to the duty roster. We're goin to need everyone taking a turn, because we've got big orders in from both the rebels and the government troops in Kinshasa, and we don't have a lot of time to get everything made.

Be careful: The detonators are very fragile and costly.

Equipment unlocked:


Sonic grenades, adapted to be launched by the SC-20k. Sonic grenades are non-lethal, distracting devices that can stun a person caught in its radius.


Upgraded hacking software. It now allows for a "forced hack", instantly hacking the device but also triggering a local audio alarm, drawing enemies.
