Armored Assault is the third mission of Renegade. It was a GDI operation to locate three top Tiberium research scientists that had been kidnapped by the Black Hand.[1]


After arriving back on Locke's helicarrier, he was arrested by the GDI military police. He was released after a few hours, and Locke warned him not to disobey orders again. Captain Parker's next mission was to find three GDI Tiberium scientists - Dr. Ignatio Mobius, his daughter Sydney, and Dr. Elena Petrova. Locke identified Nod mercenary Carlos Mendoza, General Gideon Raveshaw, and Sakura Obata in a video showing the Black Hand capturing the scientists. Locke told Havoc that there would not be any "conflict of interest". Havoc replied that he had "interest in conflict", and departed.

Havoc was inserted by the side of a road near a Nod patrol, which was quickly dealt with by an Orca strike. A Transport Helicopter dropped off a Humvee, which he commandered. Locke informed him of a Nod checkpoint with a guard tower, a Helicopter Pad, and several Nod trucks. GDI armor was already attacking the Helicopter Pad, and Rocket Soldiers were dropped in to assist. Havoc killed all Nod forces, destroyed the Helipad, and secured the guard tower. GDI dropped him another Humvee, and Havoc continued into a tunnel, running over a few Nod soldiers along the way.

Havoc emerged on the other side of the tunnel, and helped secure two houses that GDI had been searching through for a Nod Officer calling for reinforcements. Continuing through another tunnel, Havoc came upon a GDI armored group that was fighting off Nod Light Tanks and Artillery. There was an empty Mammoth Tank nearby, which Havoc quickly took control of. He defeated the Nod vehicles and killed the Nod Officer in the final house in the area. Then, Havoc drove some more, this time in the Mammoth Tank. He was informed of a Nod convoy on the road up ahead, which was quickly taken care of. A SAM site in the area was also neutralized. GDI dropped a Medium Tank for him.

Havoc then secured a Nod-held ski resort, and took another Nod-held checkpoint with a SAM site. He then drove through a tunnel and secured a bridge flanked by SAM sites. A Medium Tank was dropped off by a Transport Helicopter. Havoc assisted GDI forces in securing a Nod hydroelectric dam. A Power Plant was destroyed, rendering the Obelisk in the area useless. Havoc entered a tunnel system through the dam's bay door, and reached a Tiberium meteor impact site. Eventually, he reached a Nod base. Havoc used his Sniper Rifle to observe General Raveshaw evacuate the scientists. He saw Sakura Obata, and attempted to kill Nod mercenary Carlos Mendoza when he touched Sakura, but he missed and killed a Nod Soldier instead. Havoc battled Mendoza until the latter fled from the area. The local Hand of Nod, Tiberium Silos, and Airstrip were destroyed, and Havoc commandeered a Cargo Plane and pursued the scientists.
