Plot

After Maya told the team that some threats are shown in Slovenia, Priya, with the player went to Ljubljana to check the situation where they found a body who still burns. Priya quickly get the fire extinguisher and extinguish the fire from the body. After the first investigation they determine that the victim is Gordan Grobelnik, a firefighter. As well, they conclude that he didn't die by accident.

As they continued the investigation, they came across on the couple of suspects, Stoja Rojko, victim's colleague, Luka Brezovec, a local cop and Rafael Iskra, an office clerk. After the autopsy, Katarina told the team that the victim died from fire but that she found nails on the body, which means that they came from the killer and that the killer is a nail bitter.

Back to headquarters, while the team recap the recent events from the case Zeynep approached and said that she found that the victim often visit one bar in Ljubljana. Priya and the player went there and found that the victim is a friend with Zvomimir Setilic, an European Commissioner, but also that he was in a relationship with waitress Sonja Volk. A while later the team found that Rafael had a text argument with the victim and then they approached him once again. He said that the victim acted very aggressive, all the time, and that always told everyone that he is a hero just because he extinguishes the fire and save some kitties, but he also added that he hates when people praise themselves so much and that he is often in the fight with that kind of people. Later on, the team went to speak with Luka again after the player recovered an offensive picture made by the victim. He said that the victim was his best friend and that they always share secrets. He continued and said that one day he confessed to him that he is gay, the victim after that start to mock and make fun of him and his choices that one day he almost led him to the edge of suicide. As well, the team came across with Stoja again after the team found that the victim wanted to propose her. She laughed at them saying that she would rather marry a three then to marry an idiot like him.

Moments later, the team heart gunshots and yelling coming from the local bar. When the team quickly enter the pub, they found a drunk Sonja who with her cold revolver shot and yells at the bottles with the victim's face on it. When the team calmed her down, she in tears said that after she found that the victim wanted to propose Stoja she comforted him and he broke up with her which totally destroyed her and made her to start to drink like crazy. In the last minute Priya took her gun before she could've harm herself and called someone to pick her up. When Zeynep analyzed the strange numbers of a figure that the player found she said that numbers are the code for nuclear bombs of European Union. They back to Zvonimir to ask him about that and he said that the victim stole the figure from him. He continued and said that they changed a code after their servers became infected by LEGION but that the victim stole it from him when they get into the argument because of victim's car parked on the spot who is not for civil.

When everything is finished and last evidence found the player and Priya arrested Rafael Iskra, and office clerk. After his tries to deny he confessed that he murdered him. He said that one night he heard how he flirt with his sister, even knowing that he was in a relationship with another woman. But he said that the thing that made him to kill him was when he told his sister that he is totally invincible which got his sister to fell in love with him. That lie made him a lot angry and after a couple of not sleeping nights, he took a matchbox he kept in a locker and decided to conform him. He continued and said that the victim started to insult him and after a couple of hits he took out the matches, fired them and throw it on the victim. In the panic attack, he continued, the victim misplaced water for gasoline and spilled it on his arm, which result the fire to spread all over his body. On the trial, he said that he regrets for his action, but Judge Andrich still sentenced him to 50 years in jail.

After the trial, Tomi and the player still thought about the Tiger and the message that Sofia Lowe tome them in Hungary when Luka approaches them and said that while patrolling the streets he heard that someone mention "LEGION" and "Bar". Quickly, Tomi and the player went there and found a broken board who after Josip's analyzes end up being a military tactic board made by European Commissioner Zvonimir. Zvonimir said that tactics are just for military training of European Union and that they don't have any intense to start a war. Accidentally, the team heard via Zvonimir's phone that Coloner Spangler left something in the fire truck at fire department that he need to pick up. With suspiciousness, the player and Tomi went there and inside the safe the player unlocked was a weird looking device. After analyzes Zeynep and Josip confirmed their biggest fear and that fear is that the army of USA and the army of Russia created a machine for mass destruction. Josip said that the machine can destroy entire region but also that radioactivity that the device product can kill over 40 000 000 people in a couple of minutes and destroy all flora and fauna in the target area. Zeynep said that the weapon is against humanity and that she can record the conversation with Colonel in hope to make him spit the beans and later on the court arrest him. The team agreed, and they called Colonel Spangler to ask him about the machine. Like they thought, Spangler denied everything about the machine convincing the team that the machine is just a prototype of a new engine and that the player should return it to him otherwise he would sue the whole department. After Spangler cut the call, Zeynep said that she will analyze the results and find his location. After analyzes, Zeynep said that Spangler is in Bosnia but when the team want to go there the were cut by Chief Wilson who said that everone need to go to his office.
