Mandatory objectives[]

Locate the Buran[]

Find the cargo train "Buran" and search it for the weapons shipment.

The warehouse is the scene of a firefight between the Russian Mafia and VCI operatives under the command of SIE. They will, for the most part, shoot at each other, but will target you eventually. If you agreed to ally yourself with SIE the VCI operatives will ignore you and help take down the Mafia attackers.

Money: $2,000 (in a small room to the right of the start of this mission).

Money: $2,500 (in a small room upstairs in the first large warehouse you pass through).

Dossier: VCI The same item as the $2,500 upstairs

There is also a laptop to hack up here

Weapon Mod (in a small room on the ground floor in the first large warehouse you pass through).

Get Through Barricade[]

Find a way through the barricade to the next section of the trainyard.

There are several Russian mafia members patrolling the area. You will have to cross the tracks to climb up, then circle around to access a crane that will complete this objective.

Money: $2,500 (on the catwalk after bypassing the barricade).

After opening the gate beware of passing trains, which proceed down the open tracks (coming from the left as you exit the warehouse, then the opposite direction on the other side of the yard). There is also a guard manning a turret in this area.

Money: $2,500 (on the ground level near the turret).

Enter the marked train car to complete the "Locate the Buran" objective. The train car doors will close and you will have to chose between destroying or rerouting the weapons. Choosing reroute will let you send them to yourself or to Grigori (if he suggested it when/if you met him earlier) at a computer in the next room and will cause reputation shifts. Once you are done new enemies will have spawned.

Find Shipping Manifest[]

Find the Buran's shipping manifest to trace the path of the missiles.

Make your way to the objective marker.

Money: $4,000 (to the right of the computer used to reroute the munitions).

Hack the computer to find the shipping manifest. If you chose to reroute the weapons you will either automatically send them to yourself (if you haven't met Grigori or he didn't suggest you send them to him) or have the option to send them to yourself or Grigori (if he suggested you send them to him earlier).


  • XP: 200
  • Reputation: Mina -1 (if you chose to reroute the weapons to Grigori).
  • Reputation: Grigori +1 (if you chose to reroute the weapons to Grigori).

Identify Unknown Factions[]

Learn the identity and objective of the soldiers attacking the station.

Guards will be patrolling the newly accessible area. As soon as the last enemy is dealt with Dimitri will enter the area with four additional guards triggering a boss fight.

Choices and consequences[]

Consequences of previous missions[]

If you finished Rome missions before this one, SIE will mention the reference in the dialogue.

Consequences in following missions[]


SIE, in the beginning of the mission, likes to be spoken to aggressively and at the end of the mission you will actually have the option to attack her, which will increase your reputation with her. But in the very beginning, speak to her aggressively until she asks you to ally with them. You can choose to without any negative impact on your relationship with SIE or the mission.
