|Operation: Desert Viper|
Time of day:
"September 22, 2035. The NPAA captured a moored aircraft carrier. The ISD sent you to scuttle the ship before it leaves for the open sea."
Players have 12 minutes to complete all objectives.
Deploy the Scuttling Charges
Capture the control point at E4.
After completing the first objective, capture the control point at G0.
There are three possible secondary objectives in this mission, but only one will appear per playthrough.
Destroy the Cameras
Find and destroy security cameras. The total number of targets can vary between five and seven. Their locations are not shown on the minimap, but they are always mounted on building walls and can spot player vehicles within line of sight.
Destroy Weapon Containers
Players have 6 minutes to destroy three containers whose locations are marked on the minimap.
Find and Kill the Snipers
Players have 6 minutes to kill three snipers. The markers on the minimap indicate possible locations, but only one is correct for each group. When one sniper is killed, the next group of possible locations is displayed on the minimap.
Although there is relatively little resistance in the open desert east of the dock, much of the enemies concentrate on the aircraft carrier and the surrounding dock area. A lieutenant vehicle also spawns on the aircraft carrier, which can be difficult to take out due to its elevated position. There are only two ramps available on the east side of the carrier, and sometimes one of them may get blocked by an enemy vehicle wreck in the midst of combat, so the team should spend as little time as possible going up the ramp and and rush the defenders on the aircraft carrier.
After completing the first objective, more vehicles spawn on the western side of the dock. Two more groups spawn just outside the dock area from the north and the south.
Upon reaching the second control point, two final groups of enemies will close in on the objective location from north and south. Sometimes one group may already reach the control point and wait for the players. Destroy both groups or capture the control point quickly to complete the mission.
