Investigate Jizan Weapon Stockpile is a mission from Operation Desert Spear set in Saudi Arabia.


Search any traces of the stolen Halbech missiles in an Al-Samad detention camp.


An Al-Samad detention camp on the outskirts of Jizan had a spike in network activity, suggesting Al-Samad is stockpiling weapons there and possibly the Halbech missiles as well. Infiltrate the camp, search for weapons stockpiles, then find their communications hub and upload any information from their server to our databanks.

Maximum intel acquired for the mission: 4

  • Nasri's interrogator has informed you that Nasri's assistant is a guard in the compound and has a laptop worth a good sum of money.
  • You arranged for additional to be dropped in the area / You coerced Nasri to send supplies to the area.
  • Darcy's contact revealed tricks to disabling the security throughout the compound. Effect: Reduced difficulty of hacks.
  • You hired a private military company to start a skirmish off-site and draw some guards from the compound. Expect weaker reserves personnel at the mission site.

Available Intel[]

Intel Type Source Cost Description
Mission Intel Anonymous $3500 Bonus objective added to the mission. Nasri's captor is offering information on items of interest located in the Al-Samad Jizan compound.
Additional On-Site Acquisition (1) Nasri $3000 Additional supplies added to the mission area. With a few dollars to grease the wheels, you can have Al-Samad's weapon supplier shuttle in more weaponry at bargain rates -- which you can then swipe during your mission.
Additional On-Site Acquisition (2) Nasri $4 Additional supplies added to the mission area. Seeing as Nasri owes you his life, the least he can do is send supplies to your mission site for you to procure -- all for an insultingly low price.
Mission Information Anonymous $3000 Bonus objective added to the mission. Darcy's contact in the area is willing to provide you with special instructions on disabling the compound's security... for a price, of course.
False Attack Anonymous $1500 Reduction in enemy strength in the mission. An American private military company is offering day contracts anywhere in the Mideast. For a small fee, the PMC will run a sortie not far from Al-Samad's location and draw out any alert staff -- leaving only the second rate guards on duty when you show up.

If you buy the "bonus" weapons intel before arresting or killing Nasri, and then buy another one, you can get 4 total intel for this mission as the weapons overstock intel is only removed/changed after Nasri's Mission. You can also get both weapon supplies if you buy one before then extort Nasri and then buy Nasri's $4 one. The intel is probably broken as nothing much changes in the mission and you don't receive the supplies.

Agent Thorton was dropped off on the outskirts of the camp via helicopter, then infiltrated the camp utilizing cover in the local geography. After cutting power to the camp, he proceeded to enter the detention cells, where he accessed the terrorists' computer, gaining intelligence on Al-Samad in the region.

Bonus Objective: Agent Thorton discovered detention records in the camp, providing more information on Al-Samad in the region.

Bonus Objective: Agent Thorton thoroughly explored the cells beneath the camp for stockpiles, and his thoroughness was mentioned by Agent Darcy in his report.

Agent Thorton returned to the surface for extraction by helicopter. Cutting the power to the control center allowed Agent Darcy and a team to approach the camp and engage the terrorists.

If you already completed another mission

  • With the information obtained from the mission, Shaheed's location in Saudi Arabia has been discovered and the final phase of Operation Desert Spear is active.
  • New Mission Gained: Intercept Shaheed and Recover Missiles

Choices and Consequences[]

Consequences of Previous Missions[]

  • Depending on how you dealt with Nasri, the price and availability of intel in this mission will change.

Consequences in Following Missions[]

  • If you gathered detention records, it will give more info for your colleagues to analyze. If you don't kill Shaheed, it will earn you +1 reputation with him, as his will compliment Thorton on being thorough, although it won't affect any other dialogue with him.


After the mission you will receive an e-mail from Darcy which will differ depending on whether any alarm were sounded, as well as whether Mike took a lethal or non-lethal approach.
