Plot Summary Edit
Charlie asks what happened last night. The others argue about the events of the previous night. Stanton spots a barn and suggests they see if there’s a hayloft they can sleep in.
A Few Beans Left Edit
Charlie wakes you up. The others are at the end of their reserves, but you still have a few beans left, and she has a mission for you and Lawrence. She wants you to do a quick circuit of the area, something doesn’t feel right.
Getting Up With The Lark LarkEdit
Lawrence admires the scenery, but Charlie can’t see it, or anything, including you. They realise she’s being fed false information via the satellite link and hide. It’s too late to warn the others, as Charlie pipes through the feed from Emma’s device: soldiers have set up camp in the barn itself. The rest of the group are trapped in the hayloft above, at risk of discovery at any moment.
You and Lawrence hide from a patrol. Lawrence suggests that they might not need to hide, but Charlie is unconvinced that these soldiers are even army. Charlie listens into the feed again and they hear a familiar voice giving commands: Adebayo.
Keep After HerEdit
The soldiers are dispersing, but Charlie instructs you and Lawrence to follow one in particular. She is probably the radio operator, left behind to monitor transmissions, and Charlie wants you to acquire her radio so that you can listen in on what the enemy is doing.
Now Or NeverEdit
The others have made it out of the barn safely, but will need help to get through the patrols. You need to get the radio now. You subsequently take out the operator with a whack from a pitchfork.
