The Eleventh Hour is the final co-op mission featured in Battlefield 3. It consists of Snake 6-6 disabling a biochemical device aboard a metro train in Paris, as well as attempting to capture an HVT located in the local stock exchange facility.
The attack has started. We're confident this is the main attack referred to by El Zakir. Witnesses claim bomb like devices have been left in the metro and the Paris Stock Exchange. If Abdul Rahman is behind this attack, we expect it to be similar to the one that took place in London several years ago. You will be assisting the French police to locate and disarm the bombs and neutralize Rahman if the opportunity presents itself.
- M4A1 Carbine with ACOG and Tactical Light
- 870 MCS with Tactical Flashlight
- Combat Knife
- x3 M67 Hand Grenades
- Gas Mask
The two Marines start out by dropping through a hatch in an elevator and immediately encountering a corridor filled with PLR forces. They gun down the PLR and the reinforcements coming from further down the corridor. As they proceed across a subway platform, they are ambushed by more PLR but quickly dispatch them. They come across an armed bomb and attempt to disarm it. While one Marine disarms the bomb, the other provides cover as PLR attempt to stop them. They manage to defuse the bomb and escape the metro, along the way being informed that a high-value target, Abdul Rahman, is on site at the stock exchange. They push past the police barricade in front of the exchange building and gun down the PLR in the lobby. While attempting to locate Rahman, they come across a trading floor and defeat the PLR barricading themselves inside. Finally reaching Rahman's saferoom, they breach it, only to have Rahman grab one of the Marines and take him hostage. However, the Marine grabbed by Rahman pushes Rahman away as the other shoots Rahman, killing him instantly. They positively I.D. the corpse as Rahman and recover the nuke that he was attempting to arm, preventing the attack and dealing a major blow to the PLR.
You did it. You prevented a major disaster and saved countless lives. By capturing Hamid El Zakir and killing Abu Muhammad and Abdul Rahman you've dealt a significant blow to the PLR. Excellent work. But in this power vacuum there are already other men filling their roles. The threat may be over for now but we need to stay ready and willing to act on short notice.
