Important note:Edit

Alpha protocol is "mission driven" and player may control the order (to some extent) in which he does those mission. This order will have different effects on the game both on gameplay and plot levels. This page focuses mainly on how various missions interact with eachother depending on controllable order. Consequences on missions that invariably come later or general consequences that depend on how the mission is done is out of the scope of this page as well, unless when is also a factor. Some of the choices you make affect the game differently based on when they are made. For example you may lose reputation with Marburg if you are on good terms with SIE, however if you already met Marburg you may gain favorable reputation with SIE without affecting you reputation with Marburg. Some consequences of some choices do not depend on mission order however (such as triad assistance at the end of Taipei) those will not be mentioned.

In short this page focuses on things you may miss and actions you may regret if you do something at a wrong time.


Saudi ArabiaEdit

1. Find Nasri the Arms Dealer

  • After this mission is complete the following Intel disappears from the clearinghouse (but remains in effect if already purchased).
Additional On-Site Acquisition (1) Nasri $3,000 Additional supplies added to the Investigate Weapon Stockpile 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.
  • Killing Nasri will net you a -1 reputation point with Mina if Bug Al-Samad Airfield is done after. (Clearinghouse equipment selection is reduced).
  • Extorting Nasri will make the following intel appear in the clearinghouse.(Clearinghouse equipment selection unaffected.)
Additional On-Site Acquisition (2) Nasri $4 Additional supplies added to the Investigate Weapon Stockpile 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.
  • Arresting Nasri will net you a +1 reputation point with Mina if Bug Al-Samad Airfield is done after. Also it will make the following intel appear in the clearinghouse.(Clearinghouse equipment selection is reduced.)
Mission Intel Anonymous $3,500 Bonus Objective added to Investigate Weapon Stockpile mission. Nasri's captor is offering information on items of interest located in the Al-Samad Jizan compound.

2. Bug Al-Samad Airfield

  • If done after Find Nasri the Arms Dealer your reputation with Mina will change according to your actions in that mission (see above).
  • Receiving Darcy's dossier information from Mina during this mission's briefing will allow you to get Darcy's secret fact during Investigate Jizan Weapon Stockpile mission's briefing.
  • If this mission is done second you get a chance for a +1 reputation point with Mina during debriefing (by asking about the last mission and selecting "Sympathize" response).

3. Investigate Jizan Weapon Stockpile

  • Acquiring Darcy's dossier information from Mina during Bug Al-Samad Airfield mission's briefing will allow you to get Darcy's secret fact during this mission's briefing.

Recomended order up to this pointEdit

Do the missions as numbered above. Note however that, depending on your financial plan and decision about Nasri, this order might be next to worst possible.


During the "free roam" portion of the game.Edit

This is the biggest part of the game with a lot of missions and choices. I'll first list the effects individual missions have of your "free roam" depending on their order of completion.The list may seem intimidating at first glance, but it boils down to a few simple "links" and breakpoints (should be easy to draw a simple graphic showing mission connections) and the effects themselves are not critical. Later down the page I'll list recommended order and my reasons for that order.

Stop Omen Deng at Memorial Rally

Recomended orderEdit

Please note that the advantages here are comparable to cosmetic and the displeasing hassle of jumping around hubs may far outweigh them.

Contrary to what previous version of this page said I found NO evidence of Rome activity's affecting Heck (confirmation anyone?) or anything in Taipei for that matter. Taipei does not seem to affect Rome either. So you may safely jump from Taipei to Rome or from Rome to Taipei whenever you wish. Both of them do affect Moscow, but it works best if Moscow is visited first.

Start with Moscow hub. (to get both G22 and SIE's support for other hubs)

1. Contact Grigori the Informant - lot's of intel for Moscow, some intel for Taipei.

2. Continue with Moscow hub up to Assault Brayko's Mansion but don't do this mission. Delay it untill after Contact Steven Heck to get Heck to spike Brayko's drugs. If you plan to get on both Surkov's and Brayko's bad sides and want Russian mafia's support during Investigate Delivery at Warehouse (waste of EXP I say) delay untill then as well. Also note that your handler may die during this mission. To get the best results you'll need 8 points in Technical Aptitude or "Veteran" background (or so the wiki says anyway) so it might be wise to delay until you fulfill those requirements or until you are "done" with your handler in Rome/Taipei (assuming you'd chose data over your handler). You may also chose to finish off your handler yourself (why you'd do that is beyond my understatnding though) in which case it is also recomended to delay this mission untill Rome/Taipei interactions with your handler are done.

3. Once you have got all you may have wanted (Heck's aid, Russian's aid in Rome, Handler's aid elsewhere if that handler is going to die) proceed with Assault Brayko's Mansion and if available Prevent Surkov's Escape. DON'T try to switch hubs between those two missions as there's a bug that makes Moscow hub unavailable after completing Assault Brayko's Mansion.

Continue to the hub of your choice.

Order for Rome

1. Do Bug CIA Listening Post and Intercept NSA Intelligence or skip to Identify Jibril Al-Bara at Chateau. This will not affect anything outside of Rome.

2. Contact Jibril Al-Bara / Contact Halbech Informant. Marburg's reputation is tied to SIE's reputation. SIE is easy to affect. Marburg's rep can be used to persuade him to change sides or to kill him. Gaining positive reputation with Marburg is easy. Gaining Negative reputation with Marburg can be hard. This is why I recommend gaining SIE's favor in Moscow first. If you then need positive reputation with Marburg it's still easy. If you want negative it's easyer than otherwise. IF you are REALLY focused to have as high as possible reputation with both of them you may want to do Rome hub before Moscow. That way you can gain High reputation with Marburg, spoil his plans and by that gain a plus to your reputation with SIE. I don't recommend it though, neither SIE's nor Marburg's high reputations are a problem, and SIE is a possible handler in Rome.

3. Proceed to Investigate Marburg's Villa. We've been to Moscow so you have an option of SIE being your handler on this mission. (Though you may want to still chose Madison to gain rep with her, but hey, an options is an option)

4. Investigate Delivery at Warehouse should now be available. You should still have the support of Russian mafia at this point if you want it. If this is the only thing that was delaying your completion of Moscow hub you may move there and finish it.

5. Proceed until Intercept Marburg at the Museum of Art becomes available. In most cases you may safely proceed to finish the Rome hub. However, if you are planing to save Madison and your relationship with SIE is fragile enough and you still want her support for Assault Brayko's Mansion or you want to use it to gain reputation with her to keep her support for later, than delay completion of Rome hub until Moscow hub is done. (and if your plans do not include SIE surviving Assault Brayko's Mansion be sure to buy her intel for Intercept Marburg at the Museum of Art before going there) Anyway once Rome is done your further involvement with SIE is limited to Moscow and "endgame sequence", so feel free to do with her whatever you want.

Order for Taipei

1. Contact Steven Heck. This will allow you to Spike Brayko's drugs. If this is the only thing that was delaying your completion of Moscow hub you may move there and finish it. Doing this mission "first in region" will net you some bonus reputation with Heck.

2. Contact Hong Shi. With this and the previous we should now have all the Taipei "native" intel and equipment.

3. You may lose access to G22's and Hong Shi's services during Investigate Warehouse District Data Trail and Assault Triad Headquarters in Slums. It's not nessesary going to happen, but if you fear that it is, than do some shopping for whoever you're afraid of missing and in case of missing G22 it may be wise to finish Moscow hub first.

4. Proceed to Intercept Assassination Plans. We've been to Moscow, so you should have intel from Grigori. If you didn't visit him in Moscow hub yet, consider doing it before this mission.

5. Proceed to finish the hub. With Taipei done your further involvement with G22 is limited to Moscow and "endgame sequence", so feel free to do with them whatever you want.
