The Hybrid Virus pathogen can be used as a potential weapon against small groups of antagonists, or for removing guards during raids. When being used, the Hybrid Virus pathogen should be concealed in a bullet casing if use is by firearm, or concealed in an empty smoke grenade when dispensing the virus in an open area. It is essential that even the smallest amount of the Hybrid Virus is concealed inside a casing of some sort to prevent spreading through the air.


The Hybrid Virus is a complex airborne biological virus that partly consists of the Agent Orange chemical. The Hybrid Virus is devastatingly infective and lethal and has the potential to act as a bioweapon capable of wiping out all life on Earth. Personnel are to be warned that low-quality unmodified protective clothing will be liquefied when exposed to the Hybrid Virus due to an unidentified chemical inside the virus (e.g., general issued gas masks).

The Hybrid Virus was first discovered in Itivdleq, Greenland 1979 after three Item Acquisition Operative units were deployed in Greenland in search for dangerous anomalies. Evidence was initially detected inside the corpse of a man and reports state that 3 other people were likely killed by the virus, though this was not known to the public at the time. Autopsies concluded that the spread of the deadly virus was imminent. The bodies and samples were brought to Cardboard-7 for further study.

All samples are contained inside a airtight cylindroid glass vault within a 3 x 3m airtight cube protected by a red laser motion detector. All corpses and infected victims are to be burned1, dead or alive.

Traits of The Hybrid Virus include:

  • 100% Infectious
  • 90% Lethal
  • Transmitted through the air (effective even in conditioned air)
  • Survives well in cold environments

Symptoms and effects of The Hybrid Virus include:

  • Temporary destabilisation of the gait
  • Painful cysts
  • Abdominal pain
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhoea
  • Slow liquification of the lungs and stomach
  • Gustatory hallucinations
  • Insanity
  • Agent Orange symptoms (abnormal birth defects, leukemia, Hodgkin's lymphoma, cancer)
  • Unusual rapid growth of the teeth, leading to the breaking of the jaw
  • Frostbite
  • Freezing of the intestines
  • Catastrophic organ failure
