NotesEdit

This mission sometimes bugs, removing virtually all of the guards from the airfield and resulting in a very easy, though dull, mission.

Having played-around with this mission I can say that it is utterly buged (no pun intended). Restarting from first checkpoint led to Thorton spawning in the line of sight of the first "enemy". Restarting from any checkpoint other than the one triggering upon accessing the last building led to most of the enemies that are supposed to spawn between the reloaded check point and next checkpoint not spawning (they don't count as evaded either so that's lost EXP). And reloading from checkpoint that preceedes the last checkpoint made the level impassible by blocking the only access to the last part of the level. Also, There's a computer on the groud level in the last building that when hacked sometimes results in +75 exp (aside from the ususal exp from hacking) and a completed optional objective "Gather Intel". However it doesn't seem to do it most of the time. Seems like it depends on how you accessed the last building and if you reloaded during the mission.
