Battlefield 3 – The Story
A U.S. Marine escapes law enforcement in New York despite being handcuffed in Battlefield 3. The law enforcement personnel have not been able to identify him in Battlefield 3 either. The Marine jumps over an overpass and lands on a subway train. He enters the train which is already being hijacked. He ropes in on the train with the help of the Battlefield 3 hijackers and finds that they have already placed explosives all through the train. When he advances towards the front of the train, he is attacked by Solomon who is leading the attacks in the Battlefield 3 video game.
These events set off incidents that are initiated by a series of events that take place eight months back in Battlefield 3. Sgt. Henry Blackburn and his squad Misfit 1-3 are in a struggle to locate a U.S. investigation squad and bring them back to safety. The squad had been attempting to learn about an explosive and their investigations had taken them to Sulaymaniyah in Iraqi Kurdistan which was the location they were last known to be in before going missing. The territory is in the control of PLR which is an Iranian paramilitary rebellious group in Battlefield 3. Blackburn and his squad do find the missing team after they had been attacked by PLR, but when they are all set to escape the city is hit by an earthquake of massive proportions. Blackburn along with a few of his squad members manage to come out of the ruins. That very day the PLR plan an attack in Iran and so the U.S. invades the city. Led by Lt. Hawkins they organize an air raid and consequently Blackburn’s squad Misfit 1-3 goes to Tehran to assess the extent of damage inflicted by the battle. They question the PLR leader Faruk Al-Bashir and learn from extra investigations that the PLR have taken acquisition of Russian suitcase nukes but two of the total three devices were missing. To handle the situation Misfit 1-3 requests an M1 Abrams tank column called Anvil 3 that has Sergeant Miller as back up. Miller arranges for the removal of Misfit 1-3’s helicopter but gets captured before the Forces arrives. Jonathan Miller is immediately executed by Al-Bashir and Solomon and the whole unfortunate episode is filmed by them and then posted on the internet.
Now Blackburn and his Misfit 1-3 captures Al-Bashir but he suffers fatal injuries in the attack when the vehicle he tries to escape in, crashes. Al-Bashir spills some of the plans of Solomon, which include detonating nuclear weapons in Paris and New York, before breathing his last. Acting on this important information, Misfit 1-3 first tries to locate an arms dealer who was working with Al-Bashir and Solomon, an individual by the name of name Amir Kaffarov. But in the ensuing confusion Blackburn’s squad mates Campo and Matkovic get killed as Kaffarov organizes an air strike. At the same time Kaffarov is attacked by Dima’s team, Spetsnaz. Kaffarov is then interrogated by Dima and passes out. When Blackburn arrives, Dima is able to reveal the plot planned by Solomon and requests him to join him in an order to stop a war between the nations. But when his officer arrives, Blackburn is forced to shoot him before he kills Dima. This shooting on his part results in his heavy interrogation by the CIA.
During his captivity in Battlefield 3, a Spetsnaz squad owned by Dima attempts to stop the nuke attack on Paris, but the attempt was unsuccessful. Kiril and Vladimir die. The CIA also has no belief in Blackburn, because Solomon is a CIA agent and it was not proven that he is involved in any terrorist attack. They are misled in Battlefield 3 into thinking that Russia is to blame and that Dima has duped Blackburn. When Blackburn tries to escape from New York, the sequence of incidents unravel that the Battlefield 3 video game starts with.
