Sovereign Land is the eighth episode of the singleplayer campaign of Battlefield Hardline. While looking for a machine to break through a combination lock, Nick and Boomer are captured by Tony Alpert and his followers after Stoddard puts a bounty out for Nick.[1]


After Roark's mansion destruction, Boomer has blue prints of Khai's phone of Preferred Outcomes HQ. Boomer tells of the Brute, a safe-cracking robot that could crack any safe, including Preferred Outcomes HQ's safe. Nick and Boomer agree to go get the Brute in the Mojave Desert.

In the desert, they meet Boomer's associate and ex-girlfriend Dune Alpert and drive to the compound to get the Brute. Tony Alpert imprisons Nick and Boomer, much to the dismay of Dune. Dune gives Boomer an lock pick to escape, the duo escape and get 45T's and make it out of the silo.

Nick gets his gear, defeat the criminal's and drives away with Dune and Boomer. Dune holds them at gunpoint for ransom, but jokes that her gun isn't loaded, at the moment the gang in VDV's Buggy assault them. Dune injured, tries to mend herself as Nick and Boomer survive against Alpert's gang.

Dune leaves to go to the hospital and leave the Mojave Desert for good, and ask Nick to tell Tony he's a "wang". Nick and Boomer go to the airfield where Boomer tell of his father, Hector's abuse towards him and his mother before going in.

Boomer fixes an plane to escape as Nick gets the Brute. Stopped by Alpert's gang in Buggies and Attack Helicopters, Nick enters in an plane chain gun and gets the Brute. Alpert comes in an Type 98 and has an tank duel against Mendoza, with Nick winning. Nick tells Boomer that he killed Alpert, as Boomer replies the "world thanks you".

The duo escape on the plane, leaving the Mojave Desert and ending Alpert's industry and Hot Shot manufacturing. Nick and Boomer return back to Tyson and Khai with the Brute, leading them to final assault to Preferred Outcomes HQ to get Dawes' money.

  • At the ATF Agent's grave near the burnt down house, if the player walks up to it, there will be a prompt to press the Action to "Pay Respects". Pressing that will cause Nick kneel down and place his hand on the dirt mound in a respectful manner. This is a reference to a scene in Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare where the player would press the Action button to pay respects to a fallen Marine at a funeral. The scene has been referenced, criticized, and parodied by various community sites on the internet due to how the scene trivializes the act of remembering the dead at a funeral before their burial.
  • When the player infiltrates the camp, they can hear a guardsmen claim "Last weekend, twenty Russian Spetsnaz Special Forces comrades landed at Denver Airport." "So we're being invaded. Without a single shot fired."  "What's gonna happen is this: those twenty Russian soldiers are gonna become hundred. And then two thousand. Then we're gonna get hit with some false flag bubonic plague or anthrax." This is a reference to the film Red Dawn which take place in a small town in Colorado during the Russian invasion of the United States.
  • This is the only episode where CAR-556 is seen in the campaign.
  • When the episode was revealed before release, it held numerous references to the "Join or Die" cartoon and Gadsden flag. Due to harsh criticism that the references were an attack on the Tea Party movement, however, all references were subsequently removed from the final version of the game and replaced with fictional separatist elements.
