Underwater Warfare is the fifth mission of the game.


Vladimir is still the player character and is lead by Salmon into stealing his own hardware. Riley and Vladimir get separated from the squad after a door jams in front of them. Vladimir and Riley follow a pipe line to regroup with Captain Salmon and have a little trouble on the way. The Squad locates the hardware and then heads to the escape pods. Riley tries to give Vladimir a hand by giving his hand but shoots him instead. They manage to escape with Vladimir drowning in flooding water.



"Okay, the hardware is in a bedroom guarded by the Opfor. This going to be tough now. They know who they are dealing with. They are armed. AA-12 Shotguns, USAS-12 Shotguns, L86 LSWs and Thumpers. Stay on your guard."
