Stop The Thief (Mercenaries) Level 4

Stop The Thief - Mercenaries

Mission Description

OK, now I'm really angry about security here. Since obviously the crazy scientist had a clone last time he was obliterated … along with my lunch, he got Zraenn Papacent to steal our most recent documents of critical importance to our research. Zraenn is a very well known figure in industrial espionage and regularly tries to steal from us. Come to think of it, him being so known might be the reason he's having a hard time working in espionage … that explains why that crazy scientist is always able to hire him. Well, you are obviously the person for the job since I'm discussing this with you. Zraenn took the documents to his hideout where he's meeting the scientist. Just in case you didn't realize the importance of this, I need you to get me those documents back and teach Zraenn and his henchmen some lessons in zero-gravity ballet dancing. If you can do this as soon as possible, I'll buy you lunch - and we all know how important lunch is - a handsome cash bonus, if I say so myself, and 10 splendid piggy banks.

Tips and Help

Destroying the battleship (Mercenary Overlord) triggers the second spawn. Destroy all cruisers and frigates before the battleship to minimize incoming damage.

The second spawn appears near where the trigger battleship is destroyed and puts out a combined 866 DPS (Em:21%, Ex:6%, Kn:21%, Th:53%)1 in addition to scrambling and webbing from the frigates. A cargo container with the mission objective will drop from Shadow's battleship upon its destruction.
