Briefing[]

A map of Earth is shown.

Raines: In our efforts to buy time for the fleet to rebuild, we need to hit SetDef's battle readiness.

Reyes: What's the target?

The map changes into Saturn's moon, Titan.

Raines: Saturn's moon, Titan. It's home to a critical SDF fueling station.

The map locates the fueling station and pinpoints the insertion point.

Raines: You'll land a transport outside their patrol perimeter with Marines to scout an LZ for reinforcements. Once those troops are on the surface, you'll take out their main fueling tower.

The map marks a path to a projected LZ for reinforcements before marking a path towards the tower.

Salter: Tower's our aim-point.

Raines: Affirmative. This strike'll keep the enemy on the defensive and away from Earth.

The map switches over to Raines in Geneva.

Raines: Captain, I'd be lying if I didn't admit I got the green eye for this one. I'd gear up and join you if I could. Top Cat out.

The video ends.

Aboard Retribution[]

A course for Titan is then planned out on the map.

Reyes: Switch is set. Go for drop.

Yetide: Collision alarms up.

Gator: Away in three, two, one...

The Retribution jumps to Titan. The jump nearly knocks everyone down, with Salter helping Yetide back up. Alarms appear on the bridge console.

Reyes: Evaluation?

Yetide: Bad shift. Accuracy .86.

Salter: Can you stay in the pocket, Gator?

Gator: I'm working on it.

Yetide: Hull strain is high.

Salter: We biting the dust?

Gator: Nine to one no.

Salter: Ten percent yes.

Reyes: Hover on entry.

Gator: Three, two, one...

The Retribution arrives at Titan.

Yetide: *Grunts*

Reyes: Report.

Yetide: Error margin .05. Good drop, Captain.

Salter: Nice flying, Gator. Boats, show the Captain to the armory.

Boats: Yes, ma'am.

Reyes and Boats then head over to the elevator, where they then board it. The elevator door closes behind them as it takes them downwards.

Boats: Three decades since we've had troops on Titan, sir.

Reyes: Trial by fire.

Boats: Cooking that fuel tower will go a long way with hearts and minds.

Reyes: On board or back home?

Boats: Both, sir. Comms will most likely be intermittent. We're hoping for weak but readable.

Reyes: We'll grin and bear it.

Boats: Give them hell, Captain.

The elevator stops. The door to the elevator opens.

Boats: Follow me if you would, sir.

Reyes may talk to Hamilton.

Hamilton: Commander. Couplings blow every time we jump.

Reyes: You making do?

Hamilton: Working around the clock to keep her whole sir.

Reyes: I know I got my best man on it.

Hamilton: Thank you, sir.

Reyes then opens the door to the armory.

Griff: Now you're Mach One at seven hundred meters.

Brooks: Should still be supersonic at nine hundred.

Kashima: Yeah, but only if you're full bore.

Griff: Captain. Just getting these ground-pounders gunned up for Titan.

Omar: Muster in five on the flight deck.

Brooks: Sergeant!

Kashima: Check!

Griff: Well, I'll leave you be. Got to carbines to set up for you.

Reyes: Thanks, chief.

Reyes pats Griff on the shoulder before he walks over to Omar, who is looking at a map near a window.

Reyes: You been down to Titan?

Omar: I have.

Reyes: Ops?

Omar: No. Pops. Dad was a tank farmer. Worked the pipelines for about thirty years. Retired just before the SDF took it over.

Reyes: Well let's go give 'em hell.

Omar: You bet your ass. This has been a long time coming.

Reyes: How are we executing?

Omar: Joint operation. You and me. How copy?

Reyes: Affirmative. Armed recon. Small team.

Reyes looks at the map.

Reyes: We're invading a denied area.

Omar: Yeah. Silver lining around that reticle is SetDef didn't ask then, an we're not asking permission now.

Reyes: My jacks are already standing by.

Omar: You just do what you did at the Gateway and we'll zip this place right up.

Reyes looks at Omar.

Reyes: Proud to be of service, Sergeant.

Omar: Hmph. Pride is one-hundred percent bona-fide bullshit, Reyes. You just make sure the mission comes first.

Reyes: Copy that. I'm sure the Sergeant is well aware that the word "proud" is right in the Navy creed?

Omar: I knew there was something I didn't like about you sons of bitches. That explains the white uniform and the submarines.

Reyes: Submarines?

Omar: Yeah. Only the Navy could build a ship designed to sink.

The two chuckle before fist bumping.

Reyes: Let's gear up and get evil.

Omar: Sure thing. Hey, Captain...

Reyes: Yeah?

Omar: Let's bring Ethan with us. I want him on the team.

Reyes: He'll be glad to hear that. He has enormous respect for the Marines.

Omar: Ah, so he bloody should.

Reyes: Ethan, you're up. Report to Raven Two.

Omar and Reyes then head to customize their loadout.

Griff: Primed some choice hardware for you, Commander.

Reyes presses a button and begins to create his loadout.

Griff: Headed to Titan, huh? A shield will help you spot anything trying to sneak up on you.

Once Reyes chooses his loadout, he places his hand on the weapon rack, setting his suit's camo to Desert.

Griff: Gear's coming up!

The rack raises. Reyes picks up his weapon from the rack.

Griff: Many knows what he wants. Good luck, sir.

Reyes then leaves his station. Here, he can interact with Omar again.

Reyes: What do you say, Sergeant?

Omar: It's go time, Captain.

Reyes proceeds towards the exit and opens the door. Reyes and Omar then board a lift.

Gibson: If you need a safety refresher course, Sahora, I can arrange for an immediate 'death-by-slideshow' for you!

Sahora: Negatory, boss. Won't happen again.

Gibson: Just the men I was looking for.

The lift then descends into the hangar bay.

Reyes: How we doing, Boss?

Gibson: Raven Two is in the gate. Be advised, subsonic drag into Titan's atmosphere is no joke.

Reyes: Who's piloting the transport?

Gibson: Boggs. He'll set you down easy, but be prepared for a bumpy ride. You get airsick, Staff Sergeant?

Omar: Never.

Gibson: First time for everything.

The lift stops and it opens up for the three.

Gibson: Transport's this way.

Gibson leads the two towards the Raven, where Brooks and Kashima are waiting.

Omar: Form up! Let's go, rack and stack!

Kashima and Brooks fist bump as they board the Raven.

Omar: Keep it tight, Kashima. It's gonna get choppy...

Kashima: Not a problem sergeant.

Omar: No shame in liberating some lunch.

Reyes boards the Raven, where he sees Boggs preparing his seat.

Boggs: Got a nice aisle seat for, Sir. Captain side left, number one.

Boggs returns to the cockpit.

Brooks: Careful, captain, I've seen Kash blow chunks.

Kashima: Hey, I get seasick, man. This ain't a boat.

Brooks and Kashima put on their helmets and get in their seats. Reyes puts his gun in a holder and puts on his helmet. He then gets in his seat. His boost rig connects.

Brooks: Look who's here.

Ethan arrives.

Kashima: Wrong op, metal man.

Omar: Oi! Stand down. Stand down. The bot's with me. Eighty-six the altitude, yeah?

Omar points to a spot next to Brooks.

Omar: Pop a squat, soldier.

Ethan: Yes, Staff Sergeant.

Ethan gets in his seat as Omar puts on his helmet. He gets in his seat and nods to Reyes.

Boggs: We're "Code 1", Captain.

Reyes: Go for launch, Boggs.

Boggs: Aye, sir. Prepare for drop.

Cutscene 1[]

The Raven prepares to leave.

Boggs: Five, four, three, two, one.

The Raven then drops from the Retribution as it then descends into Titan.

Boggs: Clear. Hold tight, here it comes!

The Raven passes through a cloud layer and into a thunderstorm. The view switches to the team inside the Raven.

Omar: My guys, eyes on me! As far as Ethan goes - I will personally vouch for this stiff metal motherfucker. He's one of us. Ethan, what's the Navy's official policy for a gunfight?

Ethan: Send in the Marines!

The group laughs.

Omar: Ha! That was for you Captain.

Omar looks towards Kashima.

Omar: You alright, Kashima?

Kashima: A little dizzy, Sarge.

The Raven then passes out of the clouds, where the surface of Titan can be seen.

Boggs: Ten seconds to the DZ.

A view of Titan with Saturn in the background is then seen.

Omar: Get your breathers on!

Operation Burn Water: Refinery[]

Everyone lowers their visors.

Reyes: Clear. Brooks, get the door.

The group grabs their weapons as they meet up at the door, where Brooks opens it. Omar looks at the group.

Omar: Let's be crystal on the objective. We're dropping outside the refinery and hiking in to mark a landing zone for the assault team. Clear?

Group: Clear!

The Raven touches down.

Omar: On me!

The team exits the Raven.

Omar: Top of the ridge! Let's go!

The team then heads up the ridge.

Reyes: You're green to go, Boggs.

Boggs: Check. I'm going home to mamma. Once... marked, I'll know where... find--.

Brooks: Anyone get that?

Omar: He'll meet us at the LZ.

The team advances along the ridgeline.

Kashima: Comms are gonna be spotty. This weather's for shit.

Brooks: Squint and it almost looks like home.

Ethan: Looks like it wasn't half bad.

Omar: I took a boat ride with my dad not too far from here.

Brooks: Place has seen better days, that's for sure.

Ethan: Why did your dad come here?

Omar: Make a better life for himself and his family. Yeah, SetDef changed all that.

Ethan: Did he fight?

Reyes: Leave the sergeant alone, Ethan.

Omar: No, no, I don't mind, Captain. Listen, mate. My dad pulled some triggers. 32nd Armored.

Kashima: Ahh. Victory or Death.

Omar: *chuckles* That's the one. Survived two plane crashes in the battle for Deimos.

Reyes: Apple didn't fall too far.

Brooks: Fell far enough. 32nd was Army.

Omar: Yeah, well, I try not to hold it against him.

The team reaches a cut hole in a fence, where they drop into a part of the facility. Here, the player can go left and into an armory, which triggers an extended conversation.

Ethan: So where do you live now, Staff Sergeant?

Omar: Got a little ranch in the Hula Valley.

Ethan: Do you have horses?

Omar: Two Appaloosas and a Pinto.

Ethan: I'd like to ride a horse some day.

Reyes: You want to be a cowboy, Ethan?

Ethan: Hey, I-I have a cowboy hat. (in a Texan accent) I... I bought it in Texas, mother fucker.

Reyes: *chuckles*

Brooks: That's hella crazy.

Omar: You come to my ranch, Ethan, I'll teach you how to ride.

Kashima: Haha! Oh, I would pay to see that.

Reyes: It's gonna be a big ass horse.

The team enters a small home. Here, Reyes can interact with the squad members. If Reyes interacts with an orange notice paper on the wall by Ethan and Omar...

Reyes: I got something.

Ethan: This place was nice once...

Omar: SetDef invaded, turned it into a labor camp overnight.

Omar shakes his head.

Omar: My old man made it out just in time.

Omar takes down one of the orange notice papers.

Brooks: Yeah, I don't think these folks were that lucky.

If the player interacts with Kashima by a baby cradle containing a headless teddy bear...

Kashima: That shit is messed up.

Reyes then lifts up a fallen fridge by a door.

Reyes: Squad, this way. Through here.

The team crouches under the rubble.

Ethan: We need to clear through here and get to the fuel tower.

Omar: Brooks, Kashima. Provide overwatch. The Captain and I are moving left.

Brooks: Sergeant.

The team splits up. The storm then increases.

Reyes: Ethan, back them up.

Ethan: Sir.

Brooks: Enemy activity. Dead ahead.

Omar: These guards have seeker bots. Stick to the shadows.

Ethan: Sir, your HUD can track enemy awareness. Meter's low, you're out of sight.

Brooks: Be advised, scouts at your three o'clock.

Omar: Rog'. Let's swing wide, Captain.

Reyes follows Omar down a small ridge and into a ditch.

Omar: Keep it dark, Captain.

They sneak out of the ditch and see an SDF soldier ahead.

Omar: Hold up. Your shot, Marines.

Kashima snipes the soldier.

Kashima: Target down. You're welcome.

Omar: Fast work, Kashima.

Ethan: Clear to move up, sir.

Omar: Copy that. Stay with me, Captain.

They move up and crawl through a gap in a fence.

Omar: Through here.

Kashima: Sit tight, sir.

Omar: Whatcha got, Kashima?

Kashima: Enemy Mega with patrols. Advise you go interior.

Omar: Roger that.

Ethan: Two guards inside.

Reyes and Omar sneak into another home.

Omar: I got this one.

Omar kills a soldier in the home.

Brooks: One more. Far entrance. Headed your way.

They move into the next room. Another soldier enters the room and searches it.

If Reyes kills the soldier...

Reyes: Down.

If Omar kills the soldier...

Omar: Clear.

The move through the house to the exit. A patrol with a C12 passes by outside.

Ethan: Heads up! Incoming mech. Let it pass.

Kashima: Advise skipping past that group.

Omar: Copy that.

Once the patrol passes, Reyes and Omar exit the house and jump up a ledge to rejoin Ethan.

Ethan: Rejoining you, Captain. We'll link-up with Kashima and Brooks ahead.

Three SDF soldiers are seen ahead.

Omar: Multiple hostiles on the exit. You call, Captain.

If Reyes waits...

Omar: Drop 'em, Captain.

They each take out one soldier.

Ethan: Targets down. You're clear.

Reyes: Thanks for the assist, partner.

They enter a building through a hole in the wall and move through it.

Ethan: Guards inside.

Ethan signals Reyes and Omar to hold. A soldier slowly enters the building from the other side but Ethan punches him and slams his head into the wall.

Ethan: We're good.

They exit the building. They see two soldiers ahead.

Omar: Two targets ahead. On you, Captain.

If Reyes waits...

Omar: On your go, sir. | Drop 'em, Captain.

Reyes shoots one soldier while Omar takes out the other.

Omar: Pushing up.

Ethan: Targets down. You're clear.

They move up and encounter another patrol. A Warden flies overhead.

Omar: More. Dead ahead. Keep it dark, Captain.

Ethan: Enemy dropship. Stay low.

Once the patrol and dropship pass by, Reyes takes out a guard by a building.

Reyes: Down.

The group jumps on top of the building and drops down the other side. They come to a group of guards outside a building.

Omar: Tight batch. Tossing A-Grav. On my mark.

Omar throws an Anti-Gravity Grenade at the guards, causing them to float up.

Omar: Go!

Reyes kills all the guards while they are floating.

Ethan: They're gone.

Omar: Let's move through that outpost.

They enter the outpost and reach a door.

Omar: Let's get this door, Captain.

Reyes and Omar force the door open. Ethan sweeps the other side.

Omar: Brooks, Kashima, starts pushing through. We're moving in.

Brooks: Copy, Sergeant.

They continue through and reach a small space they can squeeze trhough.

Omar: Squeeze through here, Captain.

They squeeze through and come to a window that overlooks a clearing. A Warden takes off from the clearing. Omar signals Reyes to hold up. Omar then points to the clearing.

Omar: Looks like a good LZ, Captain.

Ethan: Sufficient room for two Ravens to load off.

Reyes: I'll call it in. Retribution, Raider 1-1. Got your LZ. Counter defenses are high, requesting heavy ordnance.

Salter: Copy that, airdrop cargo incoming Raider.

The group moves downstairs.

Omar: Need to sweep the are before our birds can land. Fan out. Weapons free on your go, Captain.

Ethan: You got a crate of seeker bots there. Perfect for an ambush.

The group ambushes the SDF soldiers and clears the area.

Omar: Squad, regroup on me!

Everyone regroups, including Brooks and Kashima. Omar tosses two beacons into the clearing.

Reyes: Raider to Main, beacon is set. You are cleared for landing. How copy?

Main: Copy, Actual...forces inbound. ETA three secon...

Kashima: Three seconds to touch down.

Omar: Stay clear of the beacons, Ravens comin' down.

Brooks: Once we're clear here, we push up to the fuel tower.

Ethan: We detonate that fuel tower, SetDef's outta gas.

Two Ravens touch down. More Marines and two IFVs come out of them. One of the IFVs pulls a friendly C12 with it.

Brooks: Hell yeah, that's what I'm talking about. Nunez!

Kashima: We're fighting alongside that thing?

The C12 activates. The Ravens start flying away.

UNSA Soldier: Staff Sergeant. Engineer MaCallum packed this in with the armor. Said it was a present for the Captain.

Omar: Ethan, what are we looking at here?

Ethan: C12 battle tank. Manual firing control. Low brains, lotta brawn.

Kashima: You sure it's on our side?

Brooks: Let's hope so.

Kashima: He's like a cooler version of Ethan!

Ethan: That's not funny.

The group, including the C12, start moving towards the fuel tower.

Omar: Listen up! Fuel station's half a klick through that canyon. Follow your armored vehicles and keep it tight. My guys, on me! Clear?

Group: Clear!

Omar: We have ourselves a station to take. Through the gate. Let's get it on!

Group: Oorah!

The C12 breaks the gate ahead open. The team and vehicles advance through the canyon.

Ethan: Be advised, there have been incidents with the automation on these C12s.

Brooks: What kind of incidents?

Ethan: There's intel they turn on their squadmates unpredictably in battle.

Kashima: Holy shit, is that true?!

Ethan: No.

Reyes: Button it up Ethan.

Ethan: Yes sir.

Omar: Scan your sectors, we're getting close.

They begin to emerge from the canyon. A ship flies overhead.

Ethan: Another freighter overhead.

Kashima: This place sure gets a lot of traffic.

The fuel tower can be seen ahead.

Kashima: Tower. Left side.

Brooks: That's our target.

Omar: Let's form up on that ridge. Get the lay of the land.

They regroup at a ridge overlooking the refinery entrance. Several enemy soldiers can be seen below.

Omar: Hold tight here. Stay low. Brooks, give us a visual.

Brooks: Multiple patrols along the perimeter. Primary entry point is the front door.

Omar: Check. Armor will clear the way. Ethan, what's the sitrep on that C12?

Ethan: C12 rockets are tied to Cap'n Reyes's wrist computer. Mark a target. Let it rip, sir.

Reyes: Check.

Omar: Let's rain fire!

Reyes activates the C12's targeting systems and marks some enemies. The C12 fires its rockets at the targets.

Omar: We're goin' hot!

They team slides down the ridge and starts engaging the SDF soldiers.

When the C12 finishes reloading its rockets:

APC Driver: C12 ready to fire.

After it fires, it will announce the number of kills it gets:

APC Driver: One/Two/Three/Four/Five/Six confirmed kills.

The group easily kills all the soldiers at the entrance with the help of the IFVs and C12. The C12 moves towards the gate.

Omar: Stand clear!

The C12 pushes the gate open, breaking the gate.

Kashima: Holy crap! You see what it did to that gate?

Omar: Stay focused. Mission is to down that fuel tower. Gate is down. We're moving! Push in!

Kashima: Got one on the wall!

The UNSA forces start pushing through the refinery.

Brooks: They're fallin' back!

Omar: Keep pushing!

Brooks: Let's get up to the fuel tower!

Kashima: That thing's tearing shit up!

The C12 takes out several enemies.

Kashima: Holy shit! Hey, Ethan, can you do that?

Ethan: I can do it to you!

As they move up, a Warden drops off more SDF troops.

Brooks: Multiple contacts!

Omar: Use that C12 to take out the reinforcements!

The SDF troops begin falling back deeper into the facility. The UNSA forces follow them and advance.

Brooks: Enemy reinforcements! Take 'em out!

Kashima: We're about halfway to the tower!

They clear the area and reach another gate.

Omar: Let's wipe up. We gotta get to the tower.

A Warden flies in carrying an SDF C12.

Brooks: Enemy Mega!

The Warden drops the C12 in front of the gate.

Omar: Get to cover! Reyes! Find a way to take this thing down!

The two C12s start shooting at each other. The SDF C12 charges the allied C12 into a building, disabling it.

Ethan: Watch it!

Kashima: Not good! Not good!

Omar: Fall back!

The enemy C12 emerges from the building. It starts to attack the UNSA forces.

Omar: This thing is too much for us! Put fire on that Mega! Everything you got!

Dog 2-1: This is DOG 2, we're gonna ram it!

Omar: No! Wait!

One of the IFVs tries to ram the C12, but the C12 stops it, pushes it back, and destroys it with its rockets.

Brooks: Dog 2 is down!

Kashima: That's half our support package! What do we do??

Omar: We need to disable its weapons to take it out!

Ethan: Captain, your heavy weapon can pierce its armor.

If Reyes waits:

Omar: Target the arms, Captain!

Reyes starts using a heavy weapon, such as a Spartan SA3 laying nearby, to attack the C12.

If Reyes destroys one of the C12's weapons:

Omar: Now's your chance to take it out!

Brooks: How the hell do we kill this thing?!

Omar: Captain, get on its back and drop him!!

Reyes: Gotta get up close and personal! Cover me!

Kashima: What? Are you crazy?!

Reyes jumps on the C12's back and uses its own remaining weapon against it, be it the minigun or missiles. The C12 is destroyed.

Kashima: Woohoo! Nice hit, Captain!

Omar: You'd have made one hell of a marine, Captain.

Reyes: Not too late for you to join SCAR team, Sergeant.

Ethan: Captain, if its circuits aren't damaged, I may be able to reboot the C12.

Ethan approaches the damaged UNSA C12. It reboots and becomes operational again.

Kashima: Haha! Our boy's still in the fight!

Brooks: That's some tough metal! Grid's locked down sergeant.

Omar: Roger that. All SATO, roll with the armor to the tower.

Reyes: Fever, Raider, we are in the AO, keep air support on standby. How copy?

Salter: Negative copy, Raider. I say again, negative co-------

Reyes: Fever? Salter, say again?

Kashima: Channel's down! Storm's picking up!

The C12 opens the gate ahead. The UNSA forces advance through the gate. A ship approaches overhead.

Brooks: Heads up, we've got incoming!

Reyes: Could be our air support.

The ship comes closer, revealing itself to be the Olympus Mons.

Kashima: Uhh, that ain't ours! Olympus Mons!

Reyes: Find cover, now!

Skelters launched from Olympus Mons begin attacking the UNSA forces. Reyes is knocked down. The Skelters strafe the Marines, killing some. The C12 shoots at the Skelters, shooting down one.

Ethan: I got you, sir.

Ethan helps Reyes up.

Ethan: Can you run?

Reyes: Yeah! Go, Ethan!

Nunez: I'm hit, I can't move!

Kashima: Take my hand Nunez!

The UNSA forces quickly try to find cover.

Ethan: Jump!

They reach a building.

Ethan: Help me get this open, Captain.

Reyes and Ethan force the door open.

Reyes: C'mon! C'mon!

Omar: Inside! Inside!

Everyone starts heading inside the building, with Kashima carrying Nunez in.

Brooks: Got two more behind me...

The C12 shoots down another Skelter.

Brooks: Stand clear!!

The Skelter crashes into the C12, disabling it and blocking the door. A video feed of Admiral Kotch appears.

Admiral Kotch: This is Admiral Salen Kotch of the Olympus Mons. All SATO forces are ordered to surrender for immediate execution.

Reyes: Kotch.

The video feed ends.

Reyes: We don't die on our fuckin' knees. Not here or anywhere else.

Brooks: We need to clear out before they hit our position.

Reyes: We hold here and wait for my air support.

Omar: Negative. I want a flag on that tower now!

Kashima stands up, as Nunez has died from her wounds.

Kashima: Nunez is gone. It's just us.

Omar: We are moving in with what we've got. Do or die!

Reyes: Is that your recommendation, Staff Sergeant?

Omar: Yes it is, sir.

Ethan: We're taking out that fuel tower, that's our mission.

Reyes: Yeah. Yeah, we got to go! Now!

Omar runs over to an elevator.

Omar: Ethan, can you unlock this elevator?

Ethan: Yes, Staff Sergeant.

Ethan begins unlocking the elevator.

Omar: Captain, take this to the roof and watch our backs. Let us know when you're in place.

Reyes: Ethan, you're with me.

Ethan: Aye, sir.

The elevator opens.

Omar: Time waits for no man, Captain.

Reyes and Ethan enter the elevator. It closes.

Omar: See you two in hell.

Reyes: Count on it.

Omar: Let's get up these stairs and find a way out.

The elevator starts ascending. Another video feed of Kotch appears, this time directed at Reyes.

Admiral Kotch: Captain Reyes. There is no hope for victory. We will bury your brothers. We will hunt your sons. Death is no disgrace.

The video feed ends. The elevator reaches the roof and opens. Reyes steps out and opens a door leading outside.

Reyes: I'm in position.

Omar: Friendlies in the wire!

Friendly Jackals fly overhead as well as Retribution.

Brooks: Yeah! Hell yeah! We got air support, Captain!

Ethan: Retribution bearing zero, four, zero!

Gator: Let's see what you're made of, Kotch! I'll take this big dog out of the hunt, Captain.

Reyes: Extreme caution Gator!

Gator: Like spitting on hell fire sir!

Retribution leads Olympus Mons away. Salter's Jackal hovers in front of Reyes. Reyes' Jackal also hovers there and waits for him.

Salter: Saved your ass.

Reyes: What took you so long?

Salter: No comms. I knew you were in trouble.

Reyes: Right on time.

Reyes jumps in his Jackal together with Ethan.

Cutscene 2[]

Salter: Eyes up on your HUD for a sitrep.

A map view of the fuel tower is shown. The C12 and IFVs are shown as offline.

Salter: Our C12 and assault vehicles are down. Without the ordnance they were carrying, we need to run an air-strike to take out the tower.

The map shifts to a nearby turbine.

Salter: MaCallum designated a gas venting turbine. We hit it, the pressure builds and the tower detonates.

A video of the turbine and subsequently the fuel tower being destroyed is shown.

Salter: Ready to party?

Operation Burn Water: Fight or Flight[]

Reyes: Good work Marines. SCARs will take it from here.

Omar: Roger that. Button it up. Do us proud.

Reyes: Copy that, Staff Sergeant.

Salter: Get your war paint on Reyes. Let's blow shit up and go home. SCAR 2. we've got a bogey ranging. Where are you?!

SCAR 2-1: 1-1, we are engaged. Will abort and come to you.

Reyes and Salter starts flying to the turbine. When they reach the turbine, it is swarming with Skelters.

SCAR 2-1: Splash down.

Salter: SCAR 2-1, I need you battin' clean up. We're breaking for the turbine. Fold in and keep us clear.

SCAR 2-1: Roger that, Fever.

The SCARs starts engaging the Skelters. After taking out a few, an A-Jak jumps in.

Salter: Watch out! An Ajak just crashed the party! We gotta take out their defenses before we can touch down. Take out that Ajak's engines!

Reyes destroys one of the A-Jak's engines.

Salter: Keep it up, one engine down.

Reyes takes out the other engine, destroying the A-Jak.

Salter: Ajak going down!

More Skelters arrive.

Salter: Skelter squad coming in hot!

The SCARs take out most of the Skelters. The remaining Skelters flee.

Salter: Looks like we're clear. You can open the turbine form the inside. Go ahead and land.

Reyes lands his Jackal on the landing pad at the turbine.

Salter: SCAR 2, acknowledge. We are on station at turbine one.

SCAR 2-1: Roger, 1-1.

Reyes and Ethan exit the Jackal. SDF soldiers come to the second floor window.

Reyes: Cover me.

Salter: Two steps ahead of ya, slick.

Salter blasts the enemies with her Jackal's weapons.

Salter: Swing around left. You ready to mop up?

Reyes: Always.

Reyes and Ethan swing around the left side of the building and engages the enemies. As they go around the back, Salter helps take out more enemies.

Salter: Let's go! Keep moving!

Reyes and Ethan go up stairs and head towards the control room.

Salter: Damn it! Takin' fire from the roof.

Reyes: Handle it!

Salter: I'll hook back. Watch your skin down there.

Salter flies away. Reyes and Ethan push in and clear the control room.

Salter: Nice one. Now hit those controls for me, will ya?

Reyes opens the turbine's shielding.

Reyes: Turbine exposed.

Salter: Copy that. Danger close, Raider.

Salter fires missiles at the turbine, destroying it.

Salter: Turbine down. All SCARs, be advised, turbine down.

Reyes: No word from Gator?

Salter: Nothin' yet. They're good don't worry.

Reyes: I hope so.

Salter: Hope's not good enough. Gotta have faith.

Reyes and Ethan head back to the Jackal and get back in it. Reyes starts up the Jackal and takes off. A series of explosions in the pipeline lead from the turbine back to the fuel tower. Reyes and Salter follow it back to the tower.

Salter: Fuse is lit.

Reyes: Let's get visual on that tower detonation.

Salter: Follow these pipes and watch the fireworks.

They reach the fuel tower.

Salter: Let's light this candle and go home.

Reyes fires at the tower. The tower detonates, destroying it.

Reyes: Holy hell...

Salter: I'd call that detonation confirmed.

Retribution descends from the clouds.

Gator: That's quite a flare you've got there, SCAR team!

Reyes: Good to see you, Gator.

Salter: Thought you were a goner.

Gator: That makes two of us. We were able to lose the Olympus in the cloud layer.

Reyes: Well let's get out of here before they find us.

Salter: Good to go, Raider. Make the call.

Reyes prepares to launch.

Reyes: All SCARs, we are go for launch.

SCAR 2-1: Solid copy. RTB.

Salter: Launch systems engaged. Let's hit it.

The Jackals prime their boosters and launch into space.

Reyes: Igniting.

SCAR 2-1: Nominal gains.

Reyes: Retribution. Go flight.

Gator: Copy. Initiating thrust sequence. Retribution going through nineteen thousand. Throttlin' up.

SCAR 2-1: Roger.

Retribution is seen launching next to the SCARs.

Gator: Thirty-five thousand going through mach one-point-five.

SCAR 2-1: Radar's picking up something!

Suddenly Olympus Mons appears next to them and fires at them.

Reyes: It's the Olympus!

Reyes' Jackal is hit, damaging its left booster.

Reyes: Arghhh SHIT!!

Onboard Computer: Boost couplings damaged. Rerouting systems.

SATO Pilot: Captain's hit!

Salter: Pull out, pull out!

Reyes: I'm dead-stickin'! Come on, come on!

They reach space and begin levelling out.

SCAR 2-1: It's right on our tail!

Salter: Evasive maneuvers!

Reyes: Work! Damnit!

Onboard Computer: Boosters disengaged. Manual controls back online.

Reyes: I'm up!

Salter: Get your ass to the Ret! Gator, spool up, we're jumping out!

Gator: Aye sir!

Reyes heads for Retribution ahead. Olympus Mons flies up in front of him but Reyes passes under it.

Reyes: Brozek is down!

Reyes' Jackal is hit by more fire.

Reyes: Strike! Strike!

Ethan: Hit is critical! We're losing pressure!

Some debris goes through the canopy and hit's Reyes' left arm. Reyes desperately tries to keep his Jackal on course but it drifts off course.

Salter: Stick this, Reyes, come on!

Reyes: Tryin'!

Ethan: Captain, we should eject!

Reyes: No, I can get us in!

Ethan: Impact imminent, sir! We need to bail out, now!

Ethan jettisons the canopy and pulls Reyes out of the Jackal.

Ethan: Mayday, mayday, 1-1 is flight abort, 1-1 is out!

The Jackal crashes into Retribution. Reyes and Ethan begin floating away from Retribution. Olympus Mons pounds Retribution with fire.

Gator: Hull breach! Compartments twelve through twenty-one damaged!

Reyes: Retribution, break engagement! Fall back!

Gator: Multiple signatures incoming! They're hitting us with everything they've got!

Reyes: Get out of the combat zone, now!

Salter: No! We're not leaving you behind!

Reyes: Gator, drop out! That's an order!

Gator: Roger, sir!

Salter: We're coming back, Reyes! You hear me?! We will find you!

Retribution jumps out.

Reyes: Fair winds, 141.

Olympus Mons jumps as well.

Ethan: Captain. Your suit.

Reyes looks at his arm, which is torn and leaking oxygen.

Reyes: Took a hit in the cockpit. Left arm's torn.

Ethan: Unsettling report, sir.

Ethan tries to stop the leak but is unable to.

Ethan: Captain, I can't stop it. What do I do?

Reyes: Let it go, Ethan.

Ethan: I can't, sir. You're my commanding officer, Captain. My mission is you.

Reyes' vision flashes black as his oxygen is depleted.

Reyes: Who says?

Ethan: I'm hardware, sir. Ultimately expendable.

Reyes: No no. You're my brother Ethan.

Reyes' vision becomes blurry and flashes more.

Ethan: Your talking robot brother?

Reyes: Affirmative.

Ethan: Yes, well, I am the handsome one, sir.

Reyes: *chuckles* No doubt. Looks like this is the end of the line, partner.

Ethan: I think I'm scared, sir.

Reyes: Me too.

Reyes starts suffocating.

Ethan: Captain. Stay with me. Sir. Captain...Captain...Captain?

The screen goes black as Reyes falls unconscious.

Cutscene 3[]

Reyes slowly wakes up. His vision begins to focus and he sees Ferran in front of him.

Ferran: Captain, can you hear me? Captain Reyes? He's coming to. There you go, sailor. Open your eyes. This is Tigris Captain Ferran.

Bryant Ling: Heart rate's stabilizing. Blood gas is in range.

Ling removes the oxygen mask from Reyes' face.

Ferran: This is Chief Bryant Ling. He's a Tigris corpsman.

Reyes: Where's Ethan?

Ethan: Right here, sir.

Ethan waves.

Ferran: You're on a shuttle from my vessel Tigris. I'm taking you back to Retribution.

Reyes sits up.

Reyes: My ship, my crew?

Ferran: Retribution's in good hands. Sit him up.

Ferran points at Retribution outside the window.

Ferran: She's right out there. In all her guts and glory.

Reyes stands up and walks to the window.

Reyes: Who contacted you?

Ferran: Lieutenant Salter. She asked the Admiral for a retrieval team.

Ling goes to check on Ethan.

Ferran: Under the circumstances he deemed the recovery too risky.

Reyes turns to Ferran.

Reyes: Raines didn't authorize the rescue?

Ferran: War has no friends, Reyes. Perhaps my motivations were selfish, but I have no intention of fighting out here alone. I tasked a pilot and two spotters, and we set out to your last known location.

Ethan: How did you account for radial velocity?

Ferran: Gravitational drag and something we've been lacing: luck. We had to pry Ethan's arms open. They'd frozen around you. Protecting his captain to the end.

Reyes and Ferran go over to Ethan.

Ferran: Dauntless valor, Ethan.

Ethan: Boundless terror, Captain.

Ferran: You are a humble one.

Pilot: Five seconds to dock.

Reyes: Thanks, Ferran. You saved our lives.

Ferran: We are a fraternity of two, you and I. A fifty percent attrition rate is not gonna fly.

Reyes helps Ethan up.

Ferran: Welcome home, Captain.

The shuttle door opens. Salter is on the other side. Reyes and Ethan walk to the door.

Salter: Above and beyond the call, Ferran.

Ferran: A calculated risk, Lieutenant. I'll be returning to Tigris now. Let's get back to work.

Ferran salutes to Salter and Salter salutes back. A Retribution crew member leads Ethan away.

Reyes: Be careful with him.

Ethan: Captain, please, I can look after myself.

Reyes: Ethan. Go to engineering, see Mac, get a clean bill.

Ethan turns around to face Reyes.

Ethan: What about you, sir?

Reyes: Don't you worry about me.

Ethan: Try and stop me, sir.

Ethan leaves. Salter approaches Reyes.

Reyes: Salt, I heard what you...

Salter gives Reyes a short hug then puts her hand on his shoulder.

Salter: You ready?

Reyes: Always.

Salter: Your crew is waiting for you, Captain.

Salter heads back to the bridge.

Retribution: Rescued[]

Reyes joins Salter and enters the bridge. Boats rings the bell when they enter. The crew salutes.

Salter: Captain on the bridge.

Comms Officer: Sir, Admiral Raines is on the line.

Salter: Rainman doesn't waste any time.

Reyes and Salter walk over to the communications screen.

Reyes: Bring him up.

Boats: Bridge is sealed.

Raines appears on the screen.

Raines: Captain Reyes. It's damn good to see you son. First and foremost, I have a classified briefing for your eyes only. Meet me in your operations office.

Reyes: Yes sir.

Salter: CommO, patch the Admiral into the Captain's operations office.

Comms Officer: Check. Connecting now.

The screen turns off. Reyes enters his operations office and activates the communication screen in the office. Raines appears again.

Reyes: Go ahead admiral.

The screen changes to showing footage of Riah in Geneva.

Raines: This is an update on the AATIS gun saboteur. Our team has completed a forensic evaluation of the SDF asset we now know as Riah. An internally planted device was found on the prisoner.

An image of Riah is shown, indicating the device in him.

Raines: It's a transponder. Emitting as we speak.

The screen changes back to Raines.

Reyes: What message is it sending?

Raines: We're still decrypting it. In the meantime, I've briefed Lt. Salter on the developments in the field that need your attention. The war goes on Captain Reyes. Defeat is not an option. Top Cat out.

The communication ends.

Comms Officer: Secure connection has terminated sir.

Reyes: Thanks, CommO.

Salter: More detailed reports available there at your desk terminal Reyes, or we can choose our next mission.

When Reyes returns to the bridge...

Gator: The Ops Map is updated and available whenever you're ready commander.

The player may leave the bridge and go to the gathering area. Some crew members are talking.

UNSA Soldier 3: I heard we lost another Captain.

UNSA Soldier 4: You didn't get the report? They found him. They're getting him back on board now.

UNSA Soldier 3: Captain's got nine lives.

UNSA Soldier 1: I can't believe they found him.

UNSA Soldier 2: Rumor is, he's only alive because of Ethan.

UNSA Soldier 1: Sounds like we need to get one of those in our squad.

UNSA Soldier 2: We'd all be done for without Tigris. They covered our asses out there.

The player may watch the news.

SETDEF FUEL LINES CUT

Reporter: SATO forces backed by SCAR-led airstrikes, have destroyed the Settlement Defense Front's primary fueling station on Titan, Saturn's largest moon. At least 100 militants were killed in a ground-based operation that cut off enemy fueling capability in the region on this, the first day in what will no doubt be a protracted war between SetDef and the UNSA. A STRATCOM official says, "we are standing with our UNSA allies against both traditional 'hybrid warfare' aggression," - referring to the mechanized brigades the SDF fight alongside, increasingly elevating their troop numbers to well beyond the Marine and SCAR team elements currently deployed. This is Armin Raskop, WNS, Berlin.

Some crew members talk after the news, discussing the Olympus Mons attack.

UNSA Soldier 6: I was on level 3 when the first volley hit.

UNSA Soldier 5: I didn't know. You alright?

UNSA Soldier 6: Yeah. Doc cleared me. But they weren't too lucky on the other end of the hall I was in. 3 steps forward and I would've been gone.

UNSA Soldier 5: Shit...

Once the player is done, they may return to the bridge to select the next mission. Upon interacting with the bridge console...

Gator: Tigris is setting out sir.

Reyes: Good flight, Ferran. Safe travels.

Ferran: To you as well Captain Reyes.

Tigris jumps away. Reyes activates the console.

Gator: There's a new mission from STRATCOM near Mercury. Another air-to air target has also become available.
