Shiro-4: The Splicer’s High Priest has crews pushing further underground in the Plaguelands, looks like a large scale mobilization against a Hive nest.
Ghost: An army of Hive controlled by the Splicers would be the end of Old Russia.
Shiro-4: Could be the end, of everything. The Devils are evolving, neutralise them before this goes any further Guardian.

++ The Forgotten Pass, Plaguelands, Old Russia

Shiro-4: Alright, there’s a series of old missile silos near the bunker. I’ve got reports of Hive near that location.
Ghost: Sounds like the place to be.
Shiro-4: For my Glimmer, yeah. And remember, target anything that moves. Every kill gets us one less Splicer or Hive to be warped by SIVA.
Ghost: Noted

** Guardian kills the Splicers

Ghost: I’m picking up several concentrated SIVA Nodes ahead.
Shiro-4: The Splicers are using SIVA to augment the Silo’s old defense protocols. They’ve got the inner doors sealed tight. If you want to get inside, you’ll need to find and destroy those SIVA Nodes.

** Guardian destroys first SIVA node

Ghost: I’ve pinpointed another SIVA node.

** Guardian destroys second SIVA node

Ghost: Picking up one more Node, let’s go get it.

** Guardian destroys third and final SIVA node

Ghost: That’s the last node, security protocols are clear and hack-able.
Shiro-4: Push forward Guardian.

** Silo’s inner doors open
Ghost: The Splicers have fortified the entrance, we’ve got heavy resistance.
Shiro-4: They must have driven the Hive deeper into the Silos. Fight through it.

** Guardian breaks through the defense turrets

Ghost: I am pinging new SIVA energy spikes below us. Multiple Nodes, all powering another barrier. But I can’t nail down their locations. The readings are too sporadic.
Shiro-4: You know what to do Guardian, find those nodes, unload on them, and keep moving.

** Guardian destroys SIVA node

Ghost: It’s hard to get a clean reading down here, keep moving. The closer we get to each Node, the easier they are to map.

** Guardian destroys SIVA node

Ghost: Alright. Still getting strong SIVA readings. There must be another node.

** Guardian explores silo

Ghost: Looks like the Splicers have taken this hatch room. The Hive bio-organic architecture is still in tact, but there are micro-bursts of SIVA activity all around us.
Shiro-4: Used to be the Fallen would attack for resources, for survival, revenge. To invade a Hive nest like this, SIVA’s changed them.

** Guardian destroys SIVA node

Ghost: That did it. No idea what those nodes were protecting, but the barriers down.
Guardian continues their descent into the Hive nest.
Shiro-4: You’re all that stands between the Splicer’s High Priest, and whatever mad science he is cooking up down there. End this.

** Guardian drops down to find a restrained Ogre

Ghost: This doesn’t look good.
Shiro-4: Did you find the High Priest?
Ghost: Not exactly.

** Guardian approaches the Ogre**

Ghost: Let’s get a closer look at that thing.

** Guardian scans the Ogre.

Ghost: That Ogre is…well, that’s disgusting.
Shiro-4: There’s more where that came from if the High Priest isn’t removed from the field.

** Kovik the Splicer Priest is killed
Ghost: What a mess, the High Priest wasn’t looking to build a Hive slave army, he was just removing their body parts to be joined with SIVA.
Shiro-4: Bioengineering’s become the Splicer’s main M.O. We’re luck to have dropped their High Priest before he can perfect any of this madness, but, it’s gotta make you wonder; what other perversions are they planning?
