The Veteran

A Vektan nationalist group led by a familiar figure tries to reignite hostilities between New Helghan and Vekta by sabotaging the peace talks between both nations. When Chancellor Visari is kidnapped, Echo and her team step in.

The good news is that the recent bioweapons scare has finally driven the Vektan and New Helghan governments to explore diplomatic solutions. Dignitaries from both sides are now holding meetings in an attempt to defuse the situation. They probably won’t reach an agreement anytime soon, but it’s still a tremendous step forward. Our campaign could certainly have turned out a lot worse.

 

The bad news is that extremist groups have been capitalizing on the lingering paranoia among the population. They’re trying to paint the meetings as a concession that will only serve to galvanize the enemy. It seems to be working, too – recruitment numbers for the Black Hand and its closest Vektan analogue, the Vektan Liberation Front, are reportedly surging.

 

The Black Hand is still reeling from the blow we dealt them last month, so I’m not too concerned about them right now. The VLF, on the other hand, is becoming bolder and bolder in its attempts to sabotage diplomatic efforts. I’m sure you’ve heard of the VLF before; they used to wage a campaign of terror against Helghan-Vektan citizens and migrant workers. Now they’re looking to hit the big leagues.

 

According to transmissions intercepted by our friend Zeus, the VLF will try and hit the upcoming meeting on Helghan. Chancellor Visari will be attending that meeting in person. I’ve tried to warn her through my contacts at Helghast Security, but… well, let’s just say I’m no longer in her good graces. If her security forces won’t take the threat seriously, we’ll have to take matters into our own hands.

 

I know some of you are loath to help Visari, but she’s still one of the more moderate voices in the New Helghan Government. Without her, any chance of a lasting ceasefire goes out the window. And if that’s not reason enough for you to take this job, I’ve heard there’s a sizeable Valor bounty on the head of the VLF leader – an ex-military figure codenamed ‘Alpha’, who personally oversees their operations.

 

Prior to the upcoming talks, delegates from both parties will be given a tour of one of the disarmed mining facilities that Stahl used as a base of operations. It seems like a prime opportunity for the VLF to strike. We’ll monitor the emergency channels of the main spire throughout the tour, and break in through the hangar bay at the first sign of trouble. Visari must be protected at all costs.

Mission 1

As we suspected, the VLF is making its move at the mining facility. We’ll need to enter through The Hangar right away and make our way to The Spire control deck to locate Chancellor Visari and the other delegates. Helghast Security will be trying to evacuate them to The Factory, but the VLF may have compromised it as well. Keep an eye out for the VLF leader, Alpha.

Mission 2

Most of the delegates have been secured, but Chancellor Visari and her security detail are still unaccounted for. Radio chatter suggests that Alpha and the remaining VLF forces are retreating through The Canyon with a group of hostages, probably towards an extraction point at The Divide. Let’s try to head them off at The Remains and free the Chancellor.

Mission 3

Chancellor Visari is safe, if a bit shaken up. Unfortunately, Alpha got away in an escape shuttle. We caught a lucky break, though – Zeus sends word that a shuttle matching his ‘RAIDER-1’ callsign was shot down over New Helghan territory, and came down somewhere in The Slums. This could be our chance to capture Alpha before he escapes through The Terminal and over The Wall.

Mission 4

Zeus found a positive ID in the Helghast Security database – it seems ‘Alpha’ is a former ISA soldier and a veteran of the Second Extrasolar War. He’s made it into Vekta City and is currently moving between hideouts to evade capture. Stake out The Station, The Park and The Penthouse, but beware of bounty hunters and Helghast death squads looking to collect on the Valor bounty on his head.

Mission 5

The VLF may have smuggled Alpha off-planet, but he won’t slip through our fingers a second time. Zeus has traced him to a derelict ISA Cruiser orbiting Vekta. Let’s find The Cruiser and capture him, then shuttle him back to Vekta for identification at the military base near The Statue. We can shake off any pursuers trying to claim the bounty in The Forest.
