Subject: Contract: 'The Acid Queen'

"The chemical plant is inside the Queen's production complex. Buford wants it destroyed. Colonel Namgung will probably stay hidden until after you blow it up. Once you seriously threaten his operation, he'll either try to flee or stop you. Be prepared for either eventually."


  • The Chemical Complex, where the chemical plant is located, is on the opposite side of the map from where the South Korean HQ is, in Chongju.
  • The name of the contract (The Acid Queen) is a referring to the contract target (Queen of Hearts).
  • In addition, the contract title may be a reference to "The Acid Queen," a song by Pete Townshend.
