MISSION BRIEFING

After stealing the Russian surveillance technology during the Orange Dawn mission, the Wolverines were able to gain a major surveillance advantage over the Russians. The Wolverines have identified a Russian top-secret, code-named PROJECT STARFIRE. The weapons facility was found hidden deep within the Wastelands area. It is imperative that the Wolverines secure the PROJECT STARFIRE weapon and the engineering schematics.

 

 The Warlord of the Wastelands, Master Blaster, and his band of Wastelanders actually ransacked the PROJECT STARFIRE weapons facility. Some of the engineers were able to escape with components of the weapon, others were taken hostage at the Wastelanders outposts. The surveillance technology has been used to track the weapons components and identify the locations of the Russian engineers scattered amongst the Wastelanders outposts.

 

For this mission, the Smugglers will need to disguise themselves and their vehicles to blend in with the Wastelanders tribes as they must make their way to each outpost to find the Russian weapons engineers and retrieve the components necessary to construct the PROJECT STARFIRE weapon before the Wastelanders realize what they have in their possession.  

WASTELAND CAMOUFLAGE

VEHICLE DISGUISE

It is crucial that the SMUGGLERS have their vehicles disguised in order to get in and out of the Wastelands for the upcoming mission. Not having any type of disguise will most likely cause the SMUGGLERS to have to pay gold to bribe their way into the wastelands. Included are some spy shots of vehicles to use as a guide for your disguise. Teams can earn gold coins for having a vehicle disguised as a Wasteland rig and will have to pay to bribe their way through checkpoints if they do not look like they belong.

WASTELAND CAMOUFLAGE

TEAM DISGUISE

In order to get in and out of the Wastelands for the upcoming mission teams will need to be disguised as the Wastelanders. Not having any type of disguise will most likely cause the SMUGGLERS to have to pay gold to bribe their way into the wastelands and will cause more challenges at the outposts. Included are some spy shots to use as a guide for your disguise. The better the disguise the more gold is possible to be earned.
