This article contains plot details pertaining to the main story.


The Battle of Magnessan was a major battle between The Empire and the Rebel Army. Numerous stories of the battle describe the city of Magnessan "going out like a light being turned off". It is believed that the city was being held under the control of the Rebel Army and was later liberated by The Empire.

During the mission Forward Momentum, the Battle of Magnessan was mentioned by an Imperial Saboteur who was helping Perkins and Ramsey liberate Greenborough from Rebel Forces who had established a base there. He says that he used a similar strategy that they were using to liberate Greenborough in the Battle of Magnessan.

Strategy Used During the Battle of Magnessan and in Greenborough[]

During the Battle of Magnessan, the Saboteur took out the guards at the watch posts while the guard shifts were changing, which cleared a path for the Imperial Army to get through, and then proceeded to move into the central part of the city and destroy the opposition from within.

Npc saboteur full I'll stay here and make sure they don't escape or call for help. Guerrilla tactics will make them think there's a much larger force pinning them down, then you can bring the 95th Rifles and finish them off.
