Splinter Cell: Double Agent

by Erenthal

Part 8: JBA HQ 3


Briefing: The bomb is in place aboard the cruise ship, and Emile is preparing for the demonstration. Before that happens, Sam must determine if the JBA possesses any more completed bombs, and their locations.


Things are really getting ugly now...

Sam's choices:  I let the bomb detonate. My mission here is too vital to risk by stopping the bomb. Emile would surely take out his anger on me, or Enrica... 

Alternate endings below:

 (EDITORS NOTE:)Now, as you might have guessed, Emile does really get angry if the bomb does not go off. If you use the code you got on the cruise ship, you lose alot of trust with the JBA. And oh, Enrica gets shot in the face.

If you use Enrica's disarm code, you don't lose any trust with the JBA. And oh, Enrica still gets shot in the face. 


Primary Objectives posted:

(NSA) Stop cruise ship explosion:

It is imperative that the cruise ship not be allowed to explode and that the JBA not be allowed to test their weapon. You must prevent the explosion.

(JBA) Allow cruise ship explosion:

As difficult as it is to do so, you must sacrifice the lives onboard the ship to maintain your cover. The loss of life is regrettable, but keeping the trust of the JBA will put you in position to prevent an even greater tragedy.

(NSA] Obtain visual proof of bomb:

It is of paramount importance that we confirm the presence on-site of a red mercury device. As there is no doubt high security on the bomb's location, the camera monitors in the surveillance room seems like the best bet for locating it without having to penetrate all of the JBA's security.

(JBA) Decrypt e-mail message:

It is vital to know what information Massoud is passing along to Tawkfir, particularily as pertains to Emile. Decrypt the e-mail that Emile intercepted in order to produce a more accurate picture of their relationship - and what might be waiting in Kinshasa.

(NSA) Scan fingerprint to access lock:

In order to search for the presence of the bomb, it will be necessary to access the next level of security of the compound located beyond the fingerprint lock. Use the fingerprint scanning software uploaded to the watch by Lambert to obtain one from the JBA members. The main member's quarters and work places will be your best bet to find their prints.

Secondary Objectives posted:

Obtain Enrica's disarm code:

The bomb the JBA has placed on board the cruise ship cannot be allowed to detonate. However, if you stop it, suspicion may fall on you. Therefore, it will benefit you if someone else takes the blame. Enrica is the best target, she can be found working in her lab above the Mine Assembly area. You can use the code on her computer to deactivate the bomb and the action will be traced to her.

New gameplay:

Yay for decryption! Anyway, I did my best to explain in it in the video, and it's hard to further expound on it. It's kinda like 3d-Sudoko, I guess?

Subject: JBA charter

Gentlemen, and lady, at this critical juncture in our nation's history. I think it's important that I take this time to remind all of us who we are and why we are here. As you know, John Brown was not merely a patriot, but a revolutionary, one who saw the systems of government in his day as hopelessly corrupt. Only fire and bloodshed could change that evil, and the events that followed his death proved him right.

Like John Brown, we stand in a time when the United States is clearly in the hands of evil corrupt men who have sold out our country and the noble, honest citizens thereof for their own benefit. The system, of which they are so proud, is broken beyond repair. We cannot effect peaceful correction, not any longer, and so is left to use to take up the tools that our predecessor used to wreak the change that is necessary.

They will call us murderers, terrorists, and worse, but that is to be expected. They have partaken of the poisoned fruit and all - the men who run this diseased government, the thieves who support them, and the sheep who willingly trade their freedom for a few morsels of luxury - are equally guilty. We are soldiers in a war for the very soul of America, and history will see our righteousness. Be strong, and know that we are the heralds of the coming storm.

(EDITORS NOTE: Either the charter was updated with the final paragraph in this mission, or I somehow missed that paragraph the first time I copied it.)

Subject: RE: Shooting range scores

All right people. You're finally starting to act like you know which end of the gun you point at the other guy. Jame had the best score in the latest round, all the way up to 113. Another few weeks of this and we're really gonna have something here.

Subject: READ THIS: Armory

Listen up, people. In case of emergency, there are two places to get your hands on ordnance for defending the compound. We've got armories by the surveillance room and the firing range, and either Emile or I can order them unlocked. Nobody else can, though, so don't get any funny ideas.

Subject: RE:RE: Cozumel

Hey there, Enrica. I think you're worrying about nothing when it comes to this whole Cozumel thing. Yes, there's going to be some casualties, but that's what you get in a war, and let's face it, we're in a war. Besides, the sort of people who go on cruises like that ain't exactly innocent. They benefit from the corruption and evil we're trying to root out, so think of it more as justified retribution from the people they've been grinding down into the mud.

As for Emile, you've gotta be overreacting. You've been a good soldier for years. Even if something goes wrong, i don't think he's gonna take it all out on you.

Subject: Surveillance room code

Hey, Enrica. I'm not supposed to be sharing this out, but the new code on the surveillance room security system is 1269. Feel free to pop in whenever you want. I'll be swinging through pretty often tonight, so you might see me there.

Subject: Office key code

Hey, Moss. Any chance we can get the keycode for my office changed? Right now it's 1234, which is the sort of thing a moron puts on his gym locker. Let me guess - Dayton came up with it.

Subject: RE: Shanghai incident

Allejandro, rest assured that I am as surprised and horrified as you that our friend Emile's helicopter pilot passed out the way he did. Neither I nor any of my people had anything to do with it. Dufraisne, for all his faults, is a valuable ally and it would do us and our shared cause no good what so ever to eliminate him at this time. This, I swear.

After this incident in Shanghai, I feel the face to face meeting in Kinshasa is risky, but our plans are at such a delicate stage that I trust other forms of communication even less.

New equipment unlocked:


Frag grenade, adapted to be launched by the SC-20k.


Enchanced night-vision goggles. Now displays in full colour.
