On Instinct is a mission in Prototype. The events take place between Days 12 and 15 of the infection.

Rage in the CityEdit

Once the Bloodtox pumper finishes pumping its contents under Times Square, Elizabeth Greene is forced out into the open. Right before Mercer's eyes, the containment wall busts open, and Greene has been transformed into an abomination known as "Mother".

Alex faces off against the creature by hacking away at the tendrils around its base. Once the bulbous growth is forced to the ground, Alex has a short time to attack it before it burrows back into the ground and resurfaces - with new tendrils even stronger than before!

After a long and arduous fight with Mother, Alex finally defeats the monstrous growth, which relents and releases Elizabeth Greene. An incensed Alex pummels Greene to a bloody mass and consumes her.

The RetreatEdit

Alex notices that the military units are running away from the area and comes to the realization that Manhattan Island is going to be purged. Meanwhile, back at Red Crown Command headquarters, the Infected are encroaching the base and Colonel Taggart has ordered a retreat. General Randall is furious, since he gave no such command. Randall tells Captain Cross that Blackwatch is moving to the USS Ronald Reagan. Randall gives Cross four hours to bring Taggart back or it'll be out of his hands. As the general boards the transport helicopter, Cross is being watched by an unseen Infected. Cross draws his stun baton, ready to make a final stand.
