Our current intelligence is limited, but communications from our embedded agent at Malmstrom Air Force Base strongly support the theory that a xenothropic entity has control of most of the state. Satellite imagery corroborates that large parts of the state are currently reality adjacent. Ordinary Americans are finding the idea of visiting the region subconsciously abhorrent and are cancelling family vacations, rerouting road trips, and electing to stay at college during the summer instead of returning home. More worryingly, our agents in homeland security have identified a number of suspected basement-infected military contractors, rogue agents, and global "adventurers" who have entered the U.S. via PDX, SLC, or DEN. Given these entry points, the conspiracy suspects that these rogue elements are converging on the region.
Malmstrom Air Force Base remains under our control. This will be your entry point. From that site, you will be equipped for your insertion at the Berkeley Pit, which we believe to be the center of the incursion.
All communications into and out of the Berkeley Pit area have gone silent. You are to verify whether this is the source of the breach, analyze the xeno-etiology of the event, estimate the percentage of the state population that has become infected, and identify the nature of the xenothropic entity at its origin. You are then tasked with a safe return to Malmstrom base for debriefing and extraction.
This mission is categorized high risk for UAS. Proceed with caution regarding the behaviors of yourself and your fire team.
Good luck and Godspeed.
