"Known worldwide as a deadly sniper, usually targets his victims from building rooftops. Governmental organizations seeking his arrest have also been his best clients." — Intercept dossier

Richard Ruttwen, nicknamed "Slay", also known as Terry is one of the wanted terrorists on Carmen Dancio's list, however instead of killing him for Carmen, he can be recruited.


Sector F9, G1, G2, G8 or I14.



Unlike all the other terrorists, Slay can actually be recruited (albeit on a temporary basis) into your team, using one of two methods:

  • Talk a bit, threaten him to get him out of the wheelchair. You can't really talk with him now. Shoot him in the leg. Recruit him. Bandage him. Recruit him for real.
  • Give him the Diskette with the criminals

Other notes

  • Talking to Carmen with him on the team will make Carmen turn hostile!
  • In 1.13 in the INI editor there is an option that can make Slay stay forever on your team.
