Previous Level Tomorrow Moscow
Next Level Contagion
The level starts with Soap, Price, Nikolai and Lightning flying over the Florida Everglades in a SH-60 Seahawk searching for any signs of Shadow Company. As they cross a glade they see a makeshift helicopter landing pad and are shot down by a Shadow Company Soldier armed with a Stinger. Crash-landing in the swamp Soap escapes but finds that the others are trapped inside. Submerging he finds the Seahawk and smashes the windows allowing the others to escape. Emerging from the water Price orders Nikolai to stay behind him as they head to the glade where they were shot down. Moving through the swamp the TF-141 encounters a dog patrol and covertly use their Crossbows to take out the patrol. As they head in more Shadow Company Members are encountered riding on a Bandvagn 206S. Hiding in the bushes the TF-141 are able to avoid the troops attention and reach the glade to find a large number of soldiers, a few dogs and a Bandvagen guarding a Little Bird Helicopter. Using the Crossbow Soap helps Price and Lightning take out the Shadow Company Operatives and the gunner on the Bandvagn.
After securing the glade Nikolai informs Soap and Price that the Little Bird is a UAV and can be flown via remote. Soap takes the remote control and flies the Little Bird across the swamp locating the Data Centre before surveying the air and ground defences. Locating the command tower Soap uses the AGM missiles attached to the UAV to destroy the tower before using the Mini Gun and Rocket Pods to target the Bandvagns and Shadow Company Hard Points. After the Little Bird UAV has destroyed the defences a second Little Bird arrives and begins attacking the drone but is destroyed by the UAVs Anti Air Defences. Shortly afterwards a Bandvagn with an attached Bofors Gun arrives and shoots down the UAV before it can cause anymore damage. With the UAV down the TF-141 move on towards the data centre but detect a large number of Shadow Company Units heading to the landing pad. Hiding under a wooden bridge the TF-141 operatives avoid detection and reach the electrified perimeter fence of the data centre. Heading into a maintenance shed Soap plants some C4 on the power transformer before detonating it rendering the fence useless. After emerging from the shed the team has to take care of a perimeter patrol before climbing the fence into the compound.
Upon breaching the perimeter of the compound the TF-141 encounter an armed Black Hawk Helicopter that drops off Shadow Company Units before attacking. Finding a Stinger located in an ammo shed Soap shoots down the Black Hawk while the others take out the infantry. After the Helicopter is destroyed Soap and Price head to the data centre while Nikolai and Lightning secure transport for their escape. Upon breaching the door Soap and Price find three Shadow Company Employees and a M5 Sentry Gun on the other side. After defeating them they head inside and repel down the lift shaft to the data core where they attach a DSM and begin to download data. Unfortunately they don’t go unnoticed and the control room staff return and signal reinforcements who repel down the shaft and enter from the other areas of the base. After a series of continuous firefights the data is finally downloaded and Soap picks up the DSM as he and Price prepare to meet up with Nikolai and Lightning. Running through the base and engaging Shadow Company Personnel Price and Soap pick up ASM-DT Amphibious Rifles and head into the air lock before emerging underwater in the swamp. After escaping the compound Soap and Price engage Shadow Company Divers pursuing them before surfacing next to a Griffon 2000TD Hovercraft piloted by Nikolai.
After bring helped on board Nikolai pilots the Hovercraft away from the Shadow Company Base. After a brief stretch of open water Shadow Company Units on the banks and perusing Zodiacs arrive and Soap, Price and Lightning have to defend the vehicle using stockpiled ordinance and the Griffon’s own mounted machine gun. Soon Nikolai spots a Bandvagn blocking the pass and alerts the others to it’s presence. Lightning readies an AT4 but is shot down by a sniper by the blocked channel. Picking up the AT-4 Soap destroys the Bandvagn only to find that there is now a Sea Hawk Helicopter perusing them. Using the AT-4 he destroys it too as the Hovercraft finally reaches a sand bank blocking the channel. Crossing the obstacle the TF-141 leave the Shadow Company pursuers behind and head out into the mangroves having secured General Shepherd’s unedited account of his involvement with the Russian Air Port Massacre and the events leading to the Russian Acquisition of the ACS Module.

Satellite zooms out of Russia and heads South towards South Africa before hovering over the Atlantic Ocean
Price: - Clarke’s never went to Site Hotel Bravo. Apparently she was given tickets to Miami International Airport where she was taken by Shepherd to somewhere in the Everglades
The Satellite tracks North West to Florida
Heron: - Well that narrows it down a bit.
Soap: - He has a point. Clarke didn’t know where exactly Shepherd took her, it could take us years to find them.
Schematics of the MiG Skat appear
Heron: - So the Americans have hundreds of Predator Drones
Images from the No Russian Campaign level and Makarov’s profile appear
Price: - That’s not good. An act involving that partnership could have disastrous consequences.
Onyx: - Information collected in Colombia suggested that Makarov was planning something big. A transmission we intercepted showed that he had set up shop in Koltsovo
The Satellite tracks across the Pacific to Koltsovo, Russia
Price: - There is a biological weapons centre there. If I know Makarov he will make a play for some-thing inside and he will do it soon. With the Americans attacking the Russians, security will be focused elsewhere
Soap: - Looks like we need to be in two places at once.
Heron: - That’s never been a good call. Shepherd can wait, Makarov won’t.
Price: - No it’s almost certain that somebody within Shadow Company knows that Clarke had information about the records. They will begin destroying everything they have. If we don’t move know all will be lost. Ian take Huntsman, Amazon and Onyx to Koltsovo. Soap and I will head to Florida with Nikolai and find those records.
Soap: - Keep in contact and if you see Makarov tell him that we are coming for him.
