I.G.I.-2: Covert Strike
17. Secret Weapons Lab


Conversation between White and Xing

White : General, it was a routine job! Quest has gone missing and you don't give a damn?

Xing : The chips got here and appear intact. Your man is not important; officers at his level are always expandable.

White : I have been loyal to you for three decades and so has Robert. Doesn't that count anything?

Xing : You were both paid well for your loyality, I believe. Forget him. He's probably drunk in some Egyptian bar. Now pay attention to the task in hand.

White : You are lying! You isn't it! Our cover was blown. He was useless to the moment you got the chips in your fifty grip. You've had him killed!

Xing : Had him killed? I can get rid of irritating officers by myself.

[Gunshot heard. Xing kills White]

Xing : Every tool wears out eventually.

Conversation between Anya and Jones

Anya: What does it look like from the inside, Jones?

Jones: I am the centre of the action, all right. Wu Xing just did away with White. Very messy.

Anya: Well, don't lose any sleep over it. I've been monitoring their comms. But we still have no idea what the EMP chips are for. I can't get into the core of their network island. It must be isolated. I need you to locate the main LAN transmitter and upload their files.

Anya: First, you need to patch that micro-transmitter into their comms system in the offices upstairs. You might be able to dig up some other info of there.

Graphic Version

Although this is quite a tough mission, it can easily be completed with less effort with the appropriate use of stealth. There are 3 parts in this mission:

Your approach to the underground tunnel.

Infiltrating the secret weapons lab.

Eliminating Wu Xing and his forces..

IGI2 - 17 1.png

You will start in the interior of the temple building which you accessed earlier. There will be two guards patrolling right in front of you. The moment they see you, they will rush to the alarm. Eliminate the two guards with a silenced weapon, in order to avoid alerting the other guards. You essentially want to save as much ammo as possible in this stage. You can optionally get the blueprints in the filing cabinets if you are quick enough but it is not a mandatory objective. Simply modify the transmitter(trying your best not to trigger the alarm) and jump down the balcony and behind the Buddha Statue. Go down the underground tunnel until you see a wire mesh gate on your left.

IGI2 - 17 2.png

Optionally shoot the camera behind it,(it doesn't make a difference if you are fast enough) open the gate, and enter the room . If the alarm has gone off at this point, there WILL be a bunch of soldiers in hot pursuit so open the door in the corner of the room as soon as possible and jump into the vent.

IGI2 -17 5.png

Move along the vent until you can see the lab,  jump onto the metal beam and move Eastwards until you come to a small tunnel. Stay here and eliminate the soldiers and the scientists. Use a silenced weapon if possible(make sure to bring along enough ammo to eliminate everyone, because you dont want to face heavy resistance when infiltrating the main building.

IGI2 - 17 6.png

IGI2 - 17 7.png

If you use a noisy weapon the enemies will retaliate with a short barrage of gunfire. retreat into the tunnel(dont go too far) until it stops and come back. Once all the enemies are eliminated, go down the tunnel and jump onto the metal pipe. crouch along the pipe until for some time and then run along the pipe to the entrance with a bunch of crates next to it.   U can enter the building and access the computer with no resistance. But first, change your weapon. (an ak47 with a good amount of ammo is recommended.) U can also change your sidearm if required.

IGI2 - 17 8.png

Use the medipack

Stay in this room

Use the medipack on the trolley near the computer. Reload both weapons before triggering the cutscene. Finish off Wu xing with a sidearm. leave your main weapon to deal with the swarm of soldiers in the room behind you. Enter the room where the soldiers spawned and lay in wait, hiding in a corner until the remaining special forces (who spawn in the other part of the lab) come at you. Kill them one by one untill you finish the mission. you can finish the mission within 15 minutes at most and get a rank.
