"Now as an Atlas operative, your squad must rescue the Nigerian Prime Minister from the KVA, a global terrorist organization."
— Level Description

"Traffic" is the third mission in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.


Mitchell, Gideon, and Joker are deployed to Lagos during Operation Lasso, with Irons excitedly informing them of the bridge of opportunities the rescue could entail. The group raid the office building from which Hades is holding the prime minister, already having killed his advisor. They breach the room and rescue the Prime Minister Abidoyo only to find that Hades has already left with the technologist, leading into a lengthy gunfight between KVA forces across a small urban slum, with Ajani feeding them information over comms.

When Gideon and Mitchell finally reach the highway, they fight their way across a swath of vehicles before identifying the van in which the Technologist has been taken, jumping across buses to reach the technologist. The duo eventually hijack the van, ramming it into the nearby river where Gideon retrieves the man. All four soldiers regroup on the shore above, with Gideon congratulating Mitchell on his first real assignment.

  • Life in the Fast Lane (25Gamerscore / Bronze Trophy Bronze Trophy PS3 icon) - Complete "Traffic."
  • Look Both Ways (10Gamerscore / Bronze Trophy Bronze Trophy PS3 icon) - Kill all the KVA in the traffic section without damaging a civilian vehicle in "Traffic."


  1. Following the slow-motion roof breach, move through the building to the large atrium where plants are in the center. Move to the left offices and look for a photo copier near the window. Next to that, there’s a corner desk where the first Intel will be located.
  2. Getting off the main streets, the player will escape a white vehicle and enter an open-air hotel painted up with dark orange bricks beneath egg shell white. Proceed up the steps to the left just as you enter the building’s courtyard. Enter the office down the way to spot two vending machines. Look behind the passage, right next to the machines, to find the second Intel.
  3. Taking out the technical from behind, the team stacks up near a corrugated wall and prepare to climb up. Don’t do it yet, instead look on the wall directly opposite of the climbing objective to locate the final Intel.
"Lagos - if there were a better example of government ineptitude, I haven't seen it. The KVA walked in like they own the place, like it was their right to take whatever they wanted. Helpless, the officials come to me. They came shocked, that a few well armed men can bring a nation so great, so powerful, to its knees. What sort of men are they, they ask? I tell them they are simply men who are willing to do whatever it takes to achieve their goals. Without emotion, without bias. And once you understand this most basic of facts, you have everything you need."
Jonathan Irons


  • Several pictures of workers working at the dam that Atlas Gorge takes place at and that appears in "Throttle" can be seen in a building in this level.[1]
  • Gideon, at the end of the cinematic cutscene, is wielding an HBRa3, but in the mission, he uses the Bal-27.
  • After crossing the streets near the end, enemy dogs appear in the next-gen versions of the game, but not in the Xbox 360 and PS3 versions.
  • After the player frees the PM and their team leaves the conference room, he can kill the Prime Minister without a penalty.
