Acquiring the mission
The mission is given by Barkeep. It is the first mission in his asassination mission line.
Completing the mission
The target is in the middle of the swamp in a rusty trailer at the northwest corner of Agroprom. When starting a conversation, the soldier tells you his name and mentions that he used to be a member of a military recon unit that was sent into the catacombs beneath Agroprom Research Institute. However, he's gone AWOL and is now hiding from the military who now want him dead.
- Slug artifact.
- If you walk near the swamps in Agroprom you can hear him moan in anger, "Bastards! I hate them! Sending us to fill every gap!" Or, "I wanna go home!... Home!."
- When you are next to the soldier, if you pull out a weapon he will panic and say "Please, Don't shoot!", but will not attempt to attack nor pull out a gun.
