The level starts with four Columbian Soldiers, Captain Marcellus, Sergeant Catherine Cortez, and Privates Albus and Redueriis on a forested embankment watching two blacked out Jeep Cherokee’s pass them. After the coast is clear they slide down the bank and enter the forest overlooking the Plantation House. From there they covertly thin the guards as they patrol the perimeter and then take up positions as Perez and his Bodyguards exit the house and meet up with the Ultranationalists who are carrying a Laptop and two suitcases of money. The deal seems to go according to plan until one of the Bodyguards is shot dead from the opposite side of the clearing to the Columbian’s location. Believing that the Russians have double crossed him Perez shoots the Laptop Carrying Russian with a Shotgun with the clearing descending into a fire fight between the two factions.
The Columbian Army soon joins in and fight their way into the house to catch Perez only to see him escaping in a Pickup Truck down towards his Plantation. As the Columbian Army begins to take control Cortez hacks into the plantation computers to find that the client list has been downloaded but manages to find a paper copy of the arms shipment details. At the same time Pvt Albus is killed by an unknown sniper and the rest of the team are instructed to take some ATVs and follow Perez.
On the way the team is harassed by Perez's Employees and Ultranationalists with Cpt Marcellus is struck by a round from a Thumper causing him to loose control. Despite his injuries he urges Cortez and Redueriis to continue without him. As they reach the fields Cortez notices ‘unknown hostiles’ entering the field possibly in pursuit of Perez. Following these enemies Cortez and Redueriis push through until they see Perez and his remaining bodyguard under fire from more Ultranationalists. Suddenly the Russians are struck down and Cortez is grabbed from behind only to be saved by Redueriis who is shot by Cortez’s attacker.
As she lies dying Cortez is informed by a mysterious ally that Perez is setting fire to the fields. Dragging Redueriss out of the field Cortez escapes just in time only to be attacked by more of Perez’s men causing her to fall into an irrigation ditch. Crawling through the mud Cortez defeats a few remaining Ultranationalists before Perez comes to execute her. At the last moment a TF-141 soldier arrives and kills Perez before shooting a dart into Cortez’s neck. As she blacks out a second soldier arrives and comments that she will do.

Condor One: - Affirmative Puma One, Condor Out
The team gets to their feet and jumps from the balcony to the annex building and slips inside to find four quad bikes. Jumping on they head down the dirt path to the fields using Automatic Pistols to thin out enemy contacts. On the way they encounter Ultranationalists and Plantation Workers fighting but continue down to the bottom of the road. As they reach the first field Marcellus is hit by a Thumper round and thrown from his Quad Bike
Redueriis: - Captain
Marcellus: - Keep going. Cortez keep Redueriis safe and get Perez nothing else matters
Gunshots can be heard before hissing static. Cortez and Redueriis drive to where the now bullet ridden Pickup is stopped and watch as TF-141 operatives enter the fields

Cortez reaches the edge of the field but is attacked by Perez’s men slipping into an Irrigation Ditch. Cortez checks Redueriis only to find that he is dead.

Intel No. 3 (1/3) Located in the Plantation House in the basement on the table next to the Thumper
Intel No. 4 (2/3) Found during the ATV Chase. When you reach the fork in the road go right across the stream towards the fallen tree. Veer Sharp Left and simply drive over the Intel to claim it
Intel No. 5 (3/3) When you drop into the Irrigation Ditch turn round to find the Intel under a big pipe
Jungle Cat (15G): - Complete the Level on Recruit, Regular or Hardened difficulties
Recruitment Drive (25G): - Complete Supply and Demand on Veteran Difficulty
Burn it Down (20G): - Escape the burning Cocaine Field in under 90 Seconds
The Jeeps at the beginning of the level simply vanish as soon as they round the bend. When you reach the plantation they reappear with different licence plates
Alerting the enemies at this point will result in the message: Mission Failed – You were detected before you reached the plantation
The woman washing her hands despite being a civilian seems to be carrying a G18 Pistol. Shooting her won’t bring up the ‘You killed a Civillian’ message so it can be presumed that she was intended to be an enemy
The clearing where the four guards are has a rusted jeep in the middle. It has obviously been there for a while but the licence plates show it was only made in 2016
A ZPU-23 can be seen outside the plantation from the ridge yet when you arrive it has vanished
A King Snake can be seen slithering in the bushes and can be shot although it’s death will not get you any achivments
The hidden Snipers use the OpFor Sniper Model
Perez’s sidearm changes from an M1911 to a Desert Eagle after he shoots the Laptop
Makarov’s lips are not moving on the laptop screen when he speaks
Makarov mentions Alejandro Rojas and the fact that he is dead. This is strange because he is shown alive at the beginning of the Modern Warfare 2 level The Hornet's Nest. It is possible that he was killed by the Favela Gang or even by Makarov for supplying information to the TF-141.
Perez drops the SPAS-12 after he shoots the Laptop but it is nowhere to be found
The Plantation House is a re-skined model of the safe house in Loose Ends
The picture of the Russian Girl with the Tommy Gun found in Loose Ends reappears in the Plantation House
A very Rude Parrot can be found in one of the bedrooms. If you enter he will swear at you in Spanish until you leave
When you have to download the information the laughing skull from Independence Day flashes onto the screen followed being told that ‘’You didn’t say the magic word” a reference to Jurassic Park
A UAV can be seen outside just after Albus’ Death. It is possible that it is Condor One
Condor One seems to share the same voice as the Columbian General at the beginning of the level
All three of the Columbian Army Teams are named after South American Cats; The Jaguar, Puma and Margay
The ATVs used are Yamaha Grizzly 450s which are not used by the Columbian Military. They probably belong to Perez’s men to patrol the fields
A disabled Technical can be seen on the side of the road with an Ultranationalist manning the machine gun. Strangely the gun doesn’t seem to make any noise when fired
After Marcellus dies if you go to where his Quad Bike crashed his body is missing
When you arrive at the site of Perez’s Pickup it seems to have changed colour from blue to green
One of Perez’s men can be heard asking, “Did you chase a snake into a cane field when you were younger.” This is a quote from Crocodile Dundee 2 where the bad guys were also Columbian Drug Barons
Occasionally the plants ripple as if someone was moving through them but there will be no-one there
Shooting the TF-141 soldiers (apart from the attacker) will flash a message; Shepherd lied these are the good guys.”
The attacking TF-141 Soldier is called Kane. His name can be seen faintly above his head for a brief second when you pull the trigger
As you pull Redueriis out of the field one of his legs occasionally disappears or will have a plant sticking through it
One of the Plantation Workers at the Irrigation Ditch has the skin of a Brazilian Militia enemies from Modern Warfare 2
A Mi-8 Hip can be seen overhead as you fall into the ditch with Ultranationalist markings. It can be seen again when Huntsman and Onyx capture you in the background beginning to land suggesting it was captured by the TF-141
The Ultranationalists in the ditch are harmless as their guns are out of ammo
Perez seems to be bullet resistant
Albus is the Spanish for White while Redueriis is Spanish for River
There are several similarities between Supply and Demand and Cliffhanger, both contain a stealth sections, a chase on a vehicle armed with only a G18, a point where you are forced to surrender and a point where you ally rescues you
The level title Supply and Demand references both the Arms deal between Makarov and Perez and the TF-141s need for more operatives after Shepherds Betrayal
This is the first and only Campaign that you play as a faction from South America
The Jungle Cat Achievement may be a reference to the Columbian Army teams being named after Cats or that the players name is Catherine that can be shortened to Cat
