Power Corrupts is the fourth campaign for the Commando Elite faction in Small Soldiers Squad Commander. It consists of three missions: Some Assembly Required, Getting Pumped Up and Transmission Tune In. The Commando Elite attempt to use a transmitter to instruct the Gorgonites artificial intelligence chips to return to their factory of origin, where the Commando Elite will destroy them.
The Commando Elite are watching a mass evacuation of the residents of the town due to the release of their toxic chemicals. Nick Nitro complains that he wanted to blow the plant up when they left it, much to Butch Meathook's annoyance. Brick Bazooka chimes in that he does not care how the enemy gets taken out as long as they are out of the way. Chip Hazard declares that with the humans out of the way, they can focus on taking out the Gorgonites. Nick Nitro suggests torching a few buildings and waiting for them to come out and toast marshmallows and sing happy campfire songs to blast them. Irritated, Butch Meathook points out they do not eat marshmallows. Chip Hazard however, realises Nick Nitro has a point, confusing Kip Killigan who thinks that the Gorgonites ultimately eat marshmallows. Chip Hazard explains that if they can gather the Gorgonites in one place, they could "take out any number of those birds with just one stone". Now Butch Meathook gets confused, thinking that attacking birds is a waste of time until he sees Nick Nitro's expression and realizes it was a figure of speech. Link Static declares than he can rig up a transmitter to instruct the Gorgonite artificial intelligence chips to return to their factory of origin provided he can get access to some high tech gadgetry. Chip Hazard suggests the nearest Fried Electronics as the town is as good as empty.
Some Assembly Required
This mission takes place at the Sales Floor of Fried Electronics. The Commando Elite must locate the main console of the Commando Elite Transmitter and 3 components (a transistor bulb, a computer chip and a number pad) scattered throughout the level. Using these components, the Commando Elite must then construct their transmitter's main console.
Getting Pumped Up
This mission takes place at the Warehouse of Fried Electronics. The Commando Elite must locate a power switch and activate it. Once this is accomplished, they must locate and activate the main generator that is to power the Commando Elite Transmitter.
Transmission Tune In
This mission takes place on the Roof of Fried Electronics. The Commando Elite must locate the satellites being used to broadcast the signal from the Commando Elite Transmitter and access their control room. They must then align the satellite dishes and broadcast their signal to the Gorgonites.
