Commandos Wiki

The Asphalt Jungle is the second mission in Commandos: Beyond the Call of Duty.


The second mission is into an occupied zoo to save a resistance fighter from execution. It showcases the new skills of puppetry, cigarette distraction and the clothes mechanics of the spy.

Historic Background[]

Belgrade has surrendered after a week of bombing. The Wehrmacht occupies Yugoslavia and is heading for Greece to help the Italian army to invade that country. Meanwhile, the rearguard troops are taking care of all the Yugoslav partisans. In the next few hours, Dragisa Skopje, one of the commanders of the Balkan army is due to be shot. Your mission consists in rescuing the man alive. This individual will provide us with valuable information for our cause..

Tactical Advice[]

Hello, officer. On this occasion, you must infiltrate your men into the zoo. Rescue Major Skopje alive. Once you have managed to free the major, steal the small lorry and escape along the northwest road. I recommend that you be very careful when you move since the execution squad will carry out the death sentence in case of an attack. By the way, as you will see, due to the heavy bombing, most of the animals in the zoo have died. Even so, be careful with the surviving animals, as some of them may be dangerous. Good luck!
