"Masks Off" is the seventeeth mission of Crysis 2.


Alcatraz is strapped to a table, where Hargreave, over a television link, informs his staff to cut him out of the nanosuit. Alcatraz has another Prophet flashback, where he sees that Prophet was sent to the island by Hargreave himself, and that Hargreave knew of the Ceph on the island and that they would presumably kill his squad, which led an enraged Prophet to stop working for him. The suit suddenly takes over and prevents the staff from cutting him out. Hargreave tells the staff to kill him, but Tara shoots them instead, and reveals herself to be a CIA mole. She explains that no one has ever seen Hargreave in person, prompting Alcatraz to fight his way to Hargreave's ornate office. There, Hargreave, still communicating over a television, reveals that he has been alive for over a hundred years, having made himself immortal with technology from the Tunguska event, whereupon he decided to devote his life to destroying the Ceph. Alcatraz finds his true withered body in a stasis pod, with the Hargreave on the monitor as a computer simulation that speaks for him. Alcatraz makes his escape from the Prism after injecting himself with a substance to enhance the nanosuits anti-alien capabilities.
