Plot[edit | edit source]
The Player and Hendricks reach the Singapore Quarantine Zone's abandoned Coalescence Corporation facility, the place where 300,000 people died due to an explosion created by Corvus. The team takes out the 54i enemies by the entrance, and then deal with an ASP-C. They enter the facility, and try to investigate deeper within the facility. Hendricks deploys a recon drone to aid in their search, and go down the cavern. After reaching one of the lower levels, the drone is mysteriously destroyed, but the team still continues their investigation.
The team then encounters grunts who were said to be "Corrupted" by Kane, and deal with them sooner on. They find out Diaz, who is in the lower facility levels, has hooked himself up to the central CPU core and is trying to upload the CIA safe house and operation locations worldwide. The Player manages to destroy the core and wound Diaz, but unfortunately failed to secure the CIA data. Diaz dies, and the remaining 54i leader, Goh Xiulan, discovers them from outside and sends 54i forces to deal with them, just before ordering the facility to be flooded. The Player and Hendricks escape and disobey a direct order to get to Kane and rescue her, who is at the Singapore safe house, before 54i forces get to her first.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- A small picture containing a poster for Black Ops II can be seen on the front desk of the facility.
- If one is quickly enough to get to the recon drone's wreckage before Hendricks does, he/she will find that the drone is destroyed in its "deployed" state. After Hendricks arrives, the drone simply "teleports" to a new location and retracts into a triangular form.
- The roaches on the signs under the silo cannot be killed or damaged in any way.
- When battling with Diaz, the GI Units that attempt to enter the control room can be hacked by Player's Homing Surge cyber core, but instead of charging at other GI Units, it will still attempt to enter the control room, it will self-destruct after a while, however.
- If one activates Tactical Mode, he/she can actually see the tag of the ASP before it reactivates.
- If the Player stalls at the entrance of the Coalescence building long enough after opening the door, Hendricks will automatically say the "long-dead program" line, even if the player hasn't trigger them yet. This may be a developer's oversight.
