This is Tratos. He's a mutant, and an enemy of Nod. He's the only sentient, other than myself, that can translate the Tacitus. Kill him. He's a threat to the Brotherhood and to the memory of Kane.
- CABAL's briefing

Tratos' Final Act is the third mission in the Nod campaign of Firestorm.[1]

Briefing

While GDI forces have been diverted to defend civilians, you are to lead an elite strike force to assassinate the mutant leader Tratos. Our new limpet mines will help you locate Tratos within his fortified base. Once located you must devise a way to reach him. GDI will have considerable protection for Tratos as he is their last hope at countering the Tiberium onslaught. Destroying their power supply should neutralize the firestorm defense system, and an effective air strike should deal with the sensor arrays.

Do not fail: this mission is integral to the future of the Brotherhood of Nod.

DATA LINK CLOSED.

  • First Objective: Attach limpet mines to GDI units to penetrate the base and locate Tratos.
  • Second Objective: Deactivate the firestorm defense system and neutralize the sensor arrays.
  • Third Objective: Assassinate Tratos.

Walkthrough

(Note: This walkthrough assumes Hard difficulty.)

FS Limpet route.png

You start with three Subterranean APCs loaded with cyborgs, Rocket infantry, and three engineers, as well as six Limpet drones. The front gate to the base is guarded by a mutant guard armed with a railgun (similar to Ghost Stalker), and he will destroy any cargo truck with a Limpet drone attached to it. Simply move a Limpet drone around him and deploy it on the road behind the first gate.

Once the Limpet drone has attached itself to one of the trucks, it will drive into the base and reveal much of it. Before moving on, move all your remaining Limpet drones to the south until a small island with power plants is revealed. This is important for the next phase of the mission.

Trivia

  • A graphical glitch can sometimes make the Tiberium monolith near Tratos appear orange instead of blue. Some sources erroneously claimed this to be a new strain of Tiberium.
