In the mission cutscene, he asks for water from Robert Zussman, who obliges. Pierson sees this and knocks the canteen out of his hand before yelling at Zussman for offering his canteen to the prisoner. The German prisoner takes this opportunity and hits Pierson with the canteen and tries to escape. Ronald "Red" Daniels gives chase, eventually catching up and knocking the prisoner to the ground. As the German prisoner begs for mercy, Daniels searches him and finds a document containing orders to plant explosives on the bridge in Remagen. Pierson then kicks the prisoner in the face.
