The HVM Captain is an NPC found in the mission Ice Station. At the beginning of the mission, the player must talk to him in order to proceed; he will be accompanied by a group of HVM Soldiers; the size of the group depends on the player's level. After killing a few waves of zombies, the captain will turn to destroy an ambulance and then become hostile to the player, who will have to subdue the squad in order to continue with the mission. He has a 100% chance to drop a Strongbox, thus making Ice Station the first and currently only mission to guarantee two strongboxes: one from the captain, and the second from the boss. The HVM Captain and his soldiers are the only human enemies in the SAS:ZA series to date. He wields an extremely powerful version of the HVM 001, making him a surprisingly damaging foe.
