Dispatch Call Script

Dispatch: All units, a 459 just occured at Sixth and Ceres. Any unit to handle, Code Two, identify.

Cole Phelps: 11 King, go ahead KGPL.

Dispatch: 11K, a 459 suspect just left Sixth and Ceres. Suspect is a male Caucasian believed to still be in the area. Code Two.

Stefan Bekowsky: Another 459. I hear that number way too often these days.


Phelps will have to climb a ladder to the roof, when Phelps on the roof, the gunman will try to run, you have to stop him to complete the case. (Note: if you get confused and don't immediately find the pipe leading down from the roof, the suspect will run round the corner before you can get down to the ground; once the suspect is round the corner, the mission is almost guaranteed to fail). After chasing the gunman across the street and down an alley he will take a hostage. After a brief exchange of dialogue, you have the opportunity to shoot the suspect. If you accidently shoot the hostage, or the suspect shoots the hostage, the mission ends as a failure and you will have the opportunity to retry from a nearby starting position.

In some instances, it is possible to shoot the Masked Gunman before any dialogue or hostage-taking takes place. Also, if you fire a shot and miss, the gunman will automatically engage in a shootout. Also, if you shoot at him prior to the wall jump, when you jump the wall, the gunman will shoot at Phelps and may kill him prior to Phelps shooting back.
