Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
|What facility was leveled by mistake by the Vigilance Platform, after the Silencer had changed the coordinates for the Satellites?||Crusader - No Remorse
Riley Military Information Installation. The name is mentioned in the newsflash, once you got back to the Base. The Media says it was destroyed by a nuclear device. Of course the WEC couldn't admit it had a space station, capable of leveling entire cities and that somehow the Resistance hacked into it.
|Which facility did the Silencer level with a fusionpac to destroy the nerve gas stockpile?||Crusader - No Remorse
Powell Military Base . The name was mentioned in the news flash you see when you return from your mission. The base was hosting fireworks and an accident occurred according to WEC Media but there was nothing to worry about and reports of mushroom clouds where exagerated and false.
Gauthier. Gauthier's name is mentioned in the final video by Chairman Draygan. Snell was a senator and Maxis is the leader of the Resistance.
Cardova. Cardova gets promoted from Private First Class to Corporal after the Nerve Gas Stockpile mission. His attitude towards you changed then as well and he allowed the Silencer to call him Yo-Yo. Brooks is promoted to Lieutenant after the events (see "No Regret" side info), Ely had been promoted to Colonel somewhere between his dissertion and the start of the game and yourself hasn't received a promotion (no one that has been mentioned in the game).
3 times. You meet the Professor 3 times. In the first mission, where he provides you with a Security Card for further acces into the Refinery. Second in Dr Hoffmans Cloning Lab, where he again supplies you with a card and last in a prison, where he is held to be executed. He dies when the WEC scrambles his teleport signal.
Sgt. Shannon Brooks. Brooks made it back, the Colonel didn't. Later Brooks found out about Vargas trying to contact her Consortium friends. Vargas tried to flee and Brooks persued. Vargas slammed Brooks into the transporterfield and she was welcomed by a force of WEC troopers. Vargas continued her vile schemes portraying Brooks as the traitor. The Silencer finds out the truth in the Draygan Correctional Institution.
Reactor Coolant System. You have to knock out the Coolant System. With the system down, the Lithium Core goes supercritical and wastes the station...after you've left it. The Thermal Coupler is the thing to destroy in Mission 1 and the SATARG is to be manipulated in one of the previous missions and destroyed in the final mission. But the destruction of SATARG does not take out the Platform. Unfortunately the Silencer wasn't quick enough with destroying the targeting system and the WEC destroyed Kiev before it could be neutralised.
Guard. This is the Guard, the ones you gun down dozens at a time.
Stormtrooper. This quote also exists for the Stormtrooper in "No Regret"...somehow it's more convincing in the sequal as it is in "No Remorse". There's different lines for each kind of guard throughout the game which they yell at you when they see you.
Anthony Zurovec. Anthony Zurovec's the name, selling weapons is my game...oops..wrong quote *grin*. The name can be seen when the Vetron scans the three Silencers (the last one, you, iniates an error). Tony Zurovec is the lead programmer of the game (coincidence with the names?). Marcus Vittek is the second Silencer and yes, you guessed it, another person in the staff goes by the name Mark Vittek.
Draygan Correctional Institution . The Draygan Correctional Institution as seen on one of the monitors in the complex. The Silencer rescues Shannon Brooks before returning to the Rebel Base.
|What is rank of Vargas' XO, who is to ambush The Silencer as he beams into the prison where, according to Vargas' false intelligence, Ely is held prisoner?||Crusader - No Remorse
Lieutenant. 'What's the status on our traitor Lieutenant? I trust you know Chairman Draygan has a personal interest in the fate of this Rouge Silence...'. Those were her words before she looked at the monitor and saw wo she was talking to. She had fed false information that Ely was beind held in the Draygan Correctional Institution. Shortly after entering the Silencer was ambushed by Elite Guards (you heard the words "Right on time, just like she said he'd be"). The Silencer disposed of them and activated a nearby terminal triggering a connection with Vargas. Vargas send a signal for Consortium troops to attack the base. Everyone was killed. The Silencer found Shannon Brooks alive in the base. As to that time it had been believed that she was the traitor. He rescues her before returning to the Rebel Base to find it destroyed, littered with the corpses of slain rebel soldiers and infested by Vetrons and Enforcers.
Professor Wilmar. Wilmar invented the shield as seen in the mission where you are send to rescue him. Hoffman is the evil Dr. Weasel your friendly arms-salesman from next door and Maxis is the Rebel Big Guy. A prototype of the Graviton Shield was in Wilmar's cell since the WEC wanted him to finish it before they would kill him. Unfortunately the transportpad was sabotaged and Wilmar died a horrific died. The Silencer took the Shield and proceeded to find another way out.
2196. The game is set in 2196 AD, as seen in the intro. The world has changed a lot an the world is controlled by the World Economic Consortium who doesn't tolerate any strives for power or independant nations. Several rebel factions formed over the years and the group known only as "The Resistance" is the largest and most effective one. The addition of the Silencer made it even more deadly and perhaps it can turn the tide in the fight against the WEC. The world also seems highly dependant on the radio-active Di-Correlium, or Di-Cor for short. This substance is only found on the moon and is primarly used for generating power. The world has become so dependant on it that destruction of the Lunar Mining Base or interruption of the constant flow of Di-Cor to Earth could have disastrous consequences.
World Economic Consortium. The World Economic Consortium, or WEC for short. Current leaders of the Earth. The WEC controls every aspect of life. The WEC is structured into all kinds of Cartels that control specific aspects. The most known is perhaps the Security Cartel that provides security to WEC facilities. Sec Cartel often works closely together with Mil Ops, Military Operations. Silencers belong to the Mil Ops exclusively and the standard Civilian guards cannot be assigned to Mil Ops because of their poor quality. The Lunar Mining Cartel (LMC) is another highly known Cartel since it employs the Lunar Mining Base or Dark Side Station where the Di-Cor ore is harvested. This radio-active substance has replaced uranium and is used for power.
|When Central learns that the Vigilance Platform is fully online they order you to lead a Strike Team to the Platform and take it out. How many soldiers are place under your command for this raid?||Crusader - No Remorse
None. Not a single soldier. Maxis planned to send in a strike team once the Silencer secures the shuttle. The Silencer would be appointed the leader. The WEC shut down the power to the Shuttle Launch Pod once The Silencer was in and prevented Maxis from sending additional troops. The shutting down of the powergrid also prevented the Silencer from escaping so the shuttle to the Vigilance Platform was his only way out. And of course the Silencer doesn't need extra backup to take it out.
None. No shields are able to stop high-explosives (this is pathetic, since the Enforcers, most Mechs and even Stormtroopers, use those on 'No Remorse' Skill). Avoid high explosives at all costs by rolling away. If an enemy fires at you while you stand, ducking will do as well. Be aware though, since they always aim for the chest the next shot will hit you if you don't roll away.
BK-40 Patriot. You are issued with the BK-40 pistol (as strange it may seem for a Silencer). The RP-32 is your starting weapon in "Crusader - No Regret". Of course it would seem strange that a Silencer carries only a small pistol (especially since the intro showed the Silencer and his comrades carrying RP-32's) but that would give you an egde too great over your opponents in the starting levels of course. Perhaps he lost his weapons in his fight with the Vetron.
Red. Red of course. Again, shame on you if you had this one wrong. Silencers can always be identified by their polonium crimson armour. The armour completely seals the Silencer making biological and chemical agents useless. Extra protection against radiation is required though. The armour can deflect some amount of standard ballistics fire and even some energy weapons. A direct hit with high explosives or the most advanced energy weapons (when he is carrying no shield) will kill him instantly though.
Captain. You were a Captain in the Consortium Silencer Corps and you maintained that rank in the Resistance.
The Wizard . He's the Wizard, waving around his electrons. He is responsible for both inserting and extracting operatives through the WEC's own transportgrid. Without him actions by the Silencer wouldn't even be possible. He was probably killed when Vargas betrayed the base. He did manage to shoot her with a tracking device which allowed Shannon Brooks to locate her on the Vigilance Platform.
Silencer. To all people who have played the game and got this one wrong: SHAME ON YOU! You are a Silencer, the most deadly instrument in the Consortium, save for the Vigilance Platform. Silencers are selected in their adolescent years by intense physical and psychological screening. They are isolated from the rest of the world and all bonds to the world are severed. They are indoctrinated to the maximum and trained in virtually any combat technique and strategy possible. They are the ultimate soldier. Silencers rarely live past the age of 40, those that do usually become instructors at the Academy. In exchange for their service and loyalty they are given a life-time unlimited amount of credits to spend at their leisure.
|What rank did Stephon Ely hold in the WEC's Special Forces when he defected to the Resistance?||Crusader - No Remorse
Captain. Stephon Ely held the rank of Captain when he defected to the Resistance in 2189. He obtained the rank of Major in the Resistance according to Consortium Intelligence. When The Silencer defects and is placed under Ely's command, Ely is holding the rank of Colonel (Some might argue that it is actually Lt Col. But his Resistance Profile just says 'Colonel', so I go by that. Matt Shephard in "No Regret" is officially listed as Lt Col, hence it's likely to assume that Ely is a full Colonel). Ely is the first resistance person the Silencer meets in person when he arrives at the Resistance Base in the Echo Sector, which Ely commands. Ely is suspicious of him at first like everyone else but his attitude changes after the Silencer succesfully blew up a monitoring station, which allowed the Resistance to ship food into Geneva. Sadly Private Andrews was killed in this mission. Ely was later captured when he walked into an ambush with Sgt Shannon Brooks. Maj Vargas spread false information of Ely being held in the Draygan Correctional Institution but these claims were false to lure the Silencer into a trap. The Silencer battled his way out and found Sgt Brooks and rescued her, finally altering her attitude towards him. Col Ely was presumed dead but was later rescued from a maximum security prison on the Lunar Mining Base "Dark Side Station" by the Silencer.
|The shotgun has a much higher firing rate when you are crouched instead of standing. True or False?||'Crusader' - The Weapons
True. For some strange reason you don't have to 'pump', greatly increasing the effectiveness of the gun. It's probably a bug, in both games but it never got fixed. It's recommended you spend most stages of the early game crouched, once you have found your SG-A1 especially on No Remorse/Regret difficulty.
|The Cametron can 'mimic' several common objects. Which one does the Cametron NOT mimic in "No Regret"?||'Crusader' - The Weapons
Energy Station. The Cametron can mimic small powergenerators, Food Dispensers, the Large Computer Terminals and boxes. Cametrons are the latest servomechs in the WEC's arsenal. Their armour is tough, probably even as tough as the Solartron's and it needs several direct GL-303 hits to knock it out. It usuallys mounts a fully automatic AC-88 which can cut through your shield very quick but some units have been observed with a GL-303. The fact that it mimics other objects make it hard to spot. But you can still determine whether somethings is an object or Cametron. If you see a row of boxes and out is slighty out of line, then it's a Cametron. The same is true for power generators. If you see a Food Dispenser with no flickering light, it's a Cametron, same for a computer terminal. It activates once you come close or when it gets hit. Alternatively Cametrons disguised as Computer Terminals activate then you try to use it.
UV-9. The GL-303 and AR-7 are cheaper, the LNR-81 doesn't feature in "No Remorse". All weapons can be bought from Weasel but if you look around very carefully in each level you can find them before you have the credits to buy them from Weasel. Also note that not all weapons are available but become available as your progress in the game.
f. This weapon, the predecessor of the RP-32 features in "No Remorse" only. It uses the same type of clips as its newer brother. The RP-32 does return and is your starting weapon in "No Regret".
Broiler. XP-5 'Broiler' Microwave Projector. This weapon is very strong and has a good rate of fire. It doesn't drain as much energy as the UV-9, can pierce Plasma Shields but leaves only a bloody mess instead of a lootable body. Good weapon to plow through a horde of Enforcers though. Somewhat inaccurate at long range.
MS. The 'Roach' is the MS-35, the little black thing encountered in "No Regret". It's primarly used for carrying messages and is armed often with an integral EM-4. It's small size makes it somewhat difficult to hit but is generally not thought to be a high class risk. Watch out for the APP those, they exist only to hunt you down.
Roaming Susan. The android is the MS-110, Roach the MS-35 and the Vetron is an APP (APP-4400). The Roaming Susan was one of the first Maintenance Servomechs and is extensively used to keep all the WEC's equipment in working order. It was originally armed with a .40 caliber small arm for site defense but recent rebel activities forced the WEC to upgrade it to a laser arm.
APP-4210. The others have been explained above and the APP-4100 is made up. The Thermatron is usually armed with an assault rifle caliber weapon (comparable to the RP-32) but rumours had it that the WEC was working on a plan to upgrade their Thermatrons with more deadly autocannons. The plans for this new prototype were stolen by the Rebel Silencer in "No Remorse" (the third mission).
