- "In the military they taught us how to kill, but no one ever told us what to do when your best friend is the enemy."
- — Nick
The Hero finds Nick and his group of survivors outside of an abandoned house, exposed and distraught. Nick explains that his best friend and former brother-in-arms, Bob, became infected and locked the group out of the house in an attempt to protect them. Unfortunately, the group is now in more danger and Nick asks the Hero to go inside and put Bob out of his misery, activating the side quest "A New Broom Sweeps Clean".
Once Bob is dead, Nick and his group move into the abandoned house. He gives the Hero the side quest "Spy Game", in which the Hero must record the radio transmissions of the military in order to see whether or not they're behind the infection.
