The mission begins with the player in a room with Sergeant Walker and Captain Bell briefing the player about the mission: find and interrogate Colonel Ayala. The player then continues through a town, clearing any Insurgents encountered. The trio will reach a large courtyard with two Insurgents. The squad then finds Ayala, only he turns out to be executed by Insurgents to prevent any information being leaked. O'Neil must then search the computer but first get by the security code using the Hacker Mini-Game. The player continues fighting Insurgents. The group encounters an entrenched machine gun and an armored personnel carrier. Sergeant Walker says that the APC is preventing the extraction chopper from approaching. The player must find an RPG to destroy the APC. The chopper arrives after the APC is destroyed and the level ends.
Even though Colonel Ayala is dead, there is no body on the floor.
There are several portraits of Charlie Kelleher throughout the houses.
On a rare occasion, a glitch may exploit itself where the APC won't appear after the wall crumbles to the ground, which it is supposed to come out of. This prevents the player from completing the level but they may commit suicide with grenades to load them back to the last checkpoint without the glitch.
