Liberate the Mines in Grumm and Alma
Alma Mission Preparation

  1. Personnel Check – Ensure all mercs are at max health, and all training points have been allocated.
  2. Weapons Check – Ensure all mercs have proper weapons equipped, all weapons are clean and in good condition, with a good supply of ammo.
  3. Equipment Check – Ensure all mercs are wearing proper armor and camouflage, and that they have been issued a good supply of skills equipment (medkits, bandages, toolkits, lockpicks, etc…)

Alma Mission Execution

  1. Avenues of Approach
    • NW corner – enter the mission map here, as it’s the most distant from the town and enemy patrols. Secure the shack in the SW corner of town, then proceed E to secure the gas station and the nice house (SE corner of town) across the street from the gas station.
  2. Kill Zones
    • Main Road – From S looking N, the main road through town leads to the main concentration of enemy near the mine entrance. Set up mercs to cover the S part of the main road, then lure enemy down the main road to your position and into your firing line. An excellent method if you have a capable sniper with a sniper rifle.
    • Alley – Carefully position mercs amongst the parked and junked vehicles at the S end of the alley, then lure enemy down the alley to your position and into your firing line.
    • SE nice house – Position mercs in the living room, with all weapons trained on the front door, then lure enemy to your position, taking them out as they try to enter there.

Alma Mission Objectives

  1. Alma will be secure when the last enemy in town dies.
  2. Speak to Matt Duncan near the mine entrance; he will give you the Prison Break mission.
  3. Prepare for the next mission.

Grumm Mission Preparation

  1. Personnel Check – Ensure all mercs are at max health, and all training points have been allocated.
  2. Weapons Check – Ensure all mercs have proper weapons equipped, all weapons are clean and in good condition, with a good supply of ammo.
  3. Equipment Check – Ensure all mercs are wearing proper armor and camouflage, and that they have been issued a good supply of skills equipment (medkits, bandages, toolkits, lockpicks, etc…)

Grumm Mission Execution

    1. Avenues of Approach
      • NE corner – enter the mission map here, and keep mercs on a low profile. There isn’t much to hide them from view of enemy patrols.
      • Sewing Plant – If there are enemy within, approach low and/or fast, staying out of line of sight from the many windows.
    2. Kill Zones
      • The top E-W road – Set up mercs behind rocks for cover on E end of the road, then lure enemy from Grumm Industrial Park (the mine) along the road to their bullet-ridden deaths.
      • Outside Sewing Plant – Shoot at any enemy within through the windows. Set mercs at various windows to cover multiple firing angles.
      • Inside Sewing Plant – Once it’s secured, set up mercs inside to cover entrances, then lure enemy from shipping containers, shipping container building, and dock to the sewing plant entrances, and gun ‘em down.
      • Dock – Once the dock is secured, quickly move mercs there and take cover, then lure enemy from in and around the two main mine buildings down the length of the dock road for the kill.
      • Mine building – Move mercs into the mine building with the ledge and roof access that allows for a clear view of Grumm City. From this elevated position, snipe at and lure enemy from the city down into the mine building, and kill them as they climb the stairs there.
      • Grumm City – Quickly move mercs onto the roof of the center flat-topped building in Grumm City. Have mercs cover the ladders up onto the roof, then lure enemy up to your position, easily shooting them as they top the ladders. It’s also easy to toss grenades from here when needed.

Grumm Mission Objectives

        There are two main locations on this map: Grumm Industrial Park (the mine, dock, and nearby buildings), and Grumm City. Killing the last enemy in each location will secure that location.

      1. Killing the last enemy in the Grumm Industrial Park location will update the Liberate the Mines in Grumm and Alma mission.
      2. Speak to Fatima in Grumm City – She will give you the Child Labor mission.
      3. Speak to Oswald at the Cambria Mine to complete the Liberate the Mines in Grumm and Alma mission.
      4. Prepare for the next mission.

Oookay… “Massive text walkthrough”… Is it written in invisible ink? Used Vaporware(tm) 2011 as the editor?

Excuse the dust.

If anyone has a specific question or needs some help — you’re in luck. I’m a tactical genius, and I’ll help with Jagged Alliance anyway I can until we’ve got some technical issues sorted out.

Ask away. Don’t worry, we know this game is hard — especially just starting out.

First of all, i must be old because i loved the first one when it was new..lol, second Kevin do you know if you can make your custom merc in this one …??

you dont get your own merc. overall this remake rocks – i got retro fever for days playing this…

For me, thinking overall satisfaction, its a 70%. They , like many others before them, rushed it. You don’t have your custom merc, you can’t train nither militia or your mercs, there are no other sites besides AIM and Bobby Ray’s, and fore some stupid reason you can’t delete your e-mails [or I did not see yet how] !!

Hi there guys…

I cleared drassen and Ira is already on my team (fitted with a looted mp5) but neither she nor the priest told me anything about the rebel leader, which continues to be an open quest in the laptop, stating only that I should talk to the priest.

Any ideas what went wrong and how can I sort that out?

I had other mission only to perform, liberate more mines but I am not able to find any near the cities they told me. My guess is that I need to find the rebel leader first.

The easyest solution is to start from scrach…lol.
Second, try kicking Ira out of your team. The priest is inside the church. Miguel has his rebel base West of Cambria , go west from the farm were Skyrider heli. went down.

You can train your Millita just click on the City where they or a Hide out or Sam site, after having given them guns bit tedious that and you can level them up to level 5 for cash.

Also, is there a website that has all the details of hidden items or items located in obscure locations of each map?
