Occasionally, the Council will ask you to remove all the aliens from a particular area. This mission is nothing more than an Abductions mission assigned to you by the Council. There is no one to escort, no one to rescue, no bombs to deactivate, no alien reinforcements falling from the sky and no civilians involved. These are, with little exception, Thin Men-infested missions: only if it's the first Council mission may it have Sectoids. The Truck Stop mission is always only Sectoids, and the Street Overpass is only Mutons (and thus, not known to appear before the 3rd month, when Mutons normally begin to appear).

The maps have pre-seeded alien squads, which do not move until activated, and will be in the same place in every playthrough. Finding the listed asset and getting the 'confirmation' radio chatter is not necessary to complete the mission - you'll need to find and eliminate all aliens to complete it.

Helicopter Assault

Council Briefing

A reconnaissance helicopter monitoring for alien activity in country was apparently taken down by hostile fire. We've pinpointed the location of the wreckage, but there's been no word from the crew. They're presumed KIA. Secure the crash site and eliminate any hostiles in the area.

Pier Assault

Council Briefing

We have to move fast on this one. The Council has offered to transfer some newly recovered equipment to HQ, but they're concerned about securing the cargo. We can't afford to lose this material. You are cleared to eliminate any threat in the area. We'll have more details once you hit the ground.

  • PierA map - Recover grey cubic crates in the building at the far end of the map.

Truck Stop Assault

Council Briefing
TRUCKSTOP1 (EU2012).png

We've received word that the aliens are attempting to intercept a cargo shipment being transported by trucks in country. It is imperative that you prevent this material from falling into alien hands. Central will provide you with further information once your troops are on the ground.

  • Truckstop map - Recover cargo - inside the last 16-wheeler's trailer: blow up some portion of the truck to be able to look inside if you wish.

Industrial Office Assault

Council Briefing
Industrial Office 1 (EU2012).png

The aliens are attempting to infiltrate one of our remote data storage facilities in country. We cannot allow them to gain access to the information stored in those servers. We will transmit a complete briefing to Central for him to disseminate to your troops.

  • Industrial Office map - Recover data servers or the tape-reel computers (seriously) near the starting end of the office.

Cemetery Assault

Council Briefing
CemeteryGrand1 (EU2012).png

News reports of mass excavations from local country cemeteries have been cropping up all over the media. This is only going to create more panic among the general populace, so we need to get down there and find out what's going on.

Research Outpost Assault

Council Briefing

A surveillance outpost in country has been infiltrated by the aliens. Details are sketchy, but that station is critical to our monitoring efforts and we can't allow hostile forces to occupy it. We have to get in there and secure the facility.
