Gessler: Industrial Espionage
|Optional objectives||Leave no living witnesses|
Need a pro for some deniable ops work. Disgusting pay.
Gessler, CEO of Rooke's rival Intex, hired me to find the location of Rooke's secret prototype.
Fritz Gessler: Who the fuck are you?
- Richard Conway:
- Conway, freelance espionage.
- Conway, hat fancier.
- The fuck does that mean? Fuck it, you'll do. Can't get a goddamn spy in this city.
- Who the fuck are you?
Gessler: Gessler, CEO, Intex. I need someone serious. Are you?
- As a pulmonary edema.
- Not that serious, no.
- I am serious, and don't call me Shirley.
Gessler: Whatever. I make guns. Rooke makes guns. Rooke's working on some bullshit secret project she thinks is going to let her get around the gun ban, and she doesn't think I know about it. You're gonna steal it.
- Where is it?
- I'm not wild about stealing from Rooke.
- Christ. Look, I don't care if you're fucking her. It's a corporation. This is business, and it's getting done whoever does it. Unless you're a goddamn employee, I suggest you look at this ridiculous fucking fee again and sign on the figurative fucking line.
- Where is it?
Gessler: Good point, first you're gonna find out where it is. She's outsourcing all the work to a company called TX Fabrications to keep it secret. Hit their admin center on Belsize Way, and search the main terminal. I'll text you the codename you're looking for.
- Got it.
- Gessler has disconnected
- Any special requests?
- Look, I don't judge assets by how well they blither into their fucking phones, so the jury's still out on you. If you wanna impress me, now or any time you're on an Intex op, don't leave witnesses. Anyone does see you, don't leave 'em breathing. Don't care how many hits it takes.
- Got it.
- Thanks for the tip, Gandhi.
Gessler: Get it?
- Got it. The prototype's at a TX Fabrication facility on Lyle.
Gessler: Fuckin A. You'll hear from me when we're ready to move.
Gessler has disconnected
From: Kelly Ackland
To: Fritz Gessler
Subject: Quit it!
For God's sake Fritz, how many times? WE ARE NOT MAKING ANYTHING FOR ROOKE.
We would! She's great! But she hasn't asked us to.
So please stop sending people to steal it. The first guy just got knocked out by a Prankspasmed lightswitch, but the last two we had to kill.
Reminder: my company invents shit that hurts people in weird ways. We're terrible place to rob, especially if we don't even have what you're looking for.
