The back of the mission pack box

Released by FormGen in 1994, the Spear Mission Packs consisted of two sets:

  • Return to Danger
  • The Ultimate Challenge

Based on Spear of Destiny, they featured a new set of graphics and sounds as well as 21 new levels for each set.

Colonel Bill dubbed these The Lost Episodes at some point in time, and many still refer to the mission packs under this name.

They are the basis for community map packs such as the Die Hard Wolfers Lost Episodes Mapset and The Lost Episodes (Revisited).


The following are the new levels in the two different Mission Packs.

Return to Danger[]

The Ultimate Challenge[]

New Enemies[]

The mission packs are known for their graphic replacements, and this includes the enemies.  While the guards, dogs, officers, and SS are changed the something comparable in the mission packs, the bosses and some enemies got completely new identities.
