"Cut off from WA command, fight alongside the Egyptian army as you pursue the three remaining targets to Kebechet - the city lost in sand."
— Mission Briefing

"Demon Within" is the eighth (ninth in Nightmares) level in Call of Duty: Black Ops III. Hendricks and the Player must assist the Egyptian army in taking down Sarah Hall and her mech, interfacing with her DNI, which takes the Player through Hall's nightmare world, including a battlefield of World War II known as the Siege of Bastogne. This level also introduces zombies into the campaign, and is the only mission in the campaign as well as Nightmares to feature Dire Wolves.

AAR INCOMING. WA FOB SAFEHOUSE-EGY. REPORT DESIGNATION. CO Juliet-Tango. Standing OIC: Juliet-Hotel. LNO: Romeo-Kilo. AFTER ACTION MISSION REPORT: Classified WASF. SOCWA-A Eyes Only. Encryption #7-4-2-CHARLIE-2-0-4-4. OPERATIONAL PROTOCOL: Interrogation & Termination. Target KIA: COP Defector Alpha-Charlie. Mission Status: OPEN. Day: 5. On approach to the HVI's location in Kebechet, the signal from the tracker indicated that the HVI’s vitals had suddenly flatlined. We later confirmed that he had been terminated by Stone - just moments before our arrival and his departure from the AO. Details on the engagement with Target Conrad are as follows - In coordination with Egyptian Army forces and with continued support from Lt. Khalil, the DA was quick and clean - Conrad was incapacitated with minimal casualties to allied forces. After performing a localized-TVA for security purposes, the team secured the target for questioning. In light of Hendricks' prior behavior during the Interrogation of Salim, I made the decision to interrogate Conrad myself. During the interrogation, Conrad appeared confused and unstable. Though her recollections lacked clarity of detail at points - she did reveal that Stone's interest in Salim was primarily concerned with identifying and locating those responsible for the black project and the disaster that then befell Singapore. Once Salim had named Sebastian Krueger, and provided his location - Coalescence Corporation HQ in Zurich - Stone put a bullet in his head. According to Conrad, Stone intends to secure Krueger and force him to publicly confirm the company's role in SP/CORVUS. Recommend HVI Krueger be moved to a secure location ASAP. Under further questioning - Conrad supplied Stone and Fierro's likely location - The now abandoned Cairo Mobile Water Refineries. LNO Kane is discussing the possibility of a JAAT with Khalil and the Egyptian Army. As remaining Targets have likely fortified the position - we’ll need all the support we can get. After all valuable INTEL was extracted, the Target was terminated. Regarding the open subject of Hendricks - In the last few days, he has clearly grown increasingly conflicted by the morality of our operations - Explicitly expressing that part of him understands and sympathizes with the motives of our targets. Were I to follow protocol -1 would recommend he be placed on leave immediately, but our current situation and lack of communication with WA command means I can't afford to lose any more people. I am confident that I can help him keep emotional impulses under control and remain an active asset for the team.

  • Excluding the tree with the baby, there are corpses of NRC forces, 54 Immortals, doctors and JSOC operatives from Call of Duty: Black Ops II under the trees.
    • In addition, Dr. Salim and Krueger can be heard talking about the program at each tree.
  • When the player is fighting zombies in the burning house, the Der Riese round starting theme can be heard.
  • When standing in one of the small pits within the Graveyard section, Dr. Salim can be heard talking.
