Retaking the Institute is a scrapped special assignment in Perfect Dark. As the name implies, the mission would have involved Joanna leading a team (presumably of CI soldiers) to eliminate all of the enemy agents occupying the Carrington Institute. Based on its text string for use in the Perfect Menu, it would have fallen between Maian SOS and WAR!. Unfortunately, the mission never made it beyond the planning stage, and all that remains of it is a text file. Its level slot uses the same style sky as the CI normally does, and both its normal music and X track are set to CI Operative.

A breakdown of the file:

The mission title. None of the text files in the final version of the game, with the exception of The Duel, have a string with their mission title. Mission titles are all stored in LoptionsE in the final version.

The objectives. Only the first one had been decided on at the time this text file was written.


Text files similar to this, from the 4.4 beta version of the game, have been found for the other four special assignments as well. This implies that the special assignments were a late addition to the game, as the normal mission text files are similar to the ones found in the final version.
