The first major choice in COD Cold Wars campaign. This Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War: Release, Throw Or Capture guide will tell you what happens to Qasim when you either choose to release him, throw him off the roof, or capture him and bring him back to base.
There are a number of different choices in the Call of Duty: Cold War campaign. Some of these choices have very little impact, simply steering the conversation or dialogue in a specific direction. However, other choices have a much more lasting impact on the story. One such choice is right at the start of the game, when you choose to release, throw, or capture Qasim.
Call Of Duty Black Ops Cold War: Release, Throw Or Capture Qasim
If you choose to Release Qasim
If you choose to release Qasim, Adler asks you to finish the job. If you stand around and do nothing, Adler takes out his pistol and shoots Qasim in the head.
If you choose to Throw Qasim
If you choose to throw Qasim, he is thrown off the roof. He appears to die although you don’t actually witness his death.
If you choose to Capture Qasim
If you choose to capture Qasim, you knock him out cold and bring him in for questioning. This goes off without a hitch.
It is very possible that these choices will have a greater impact later down the line. Qasim could return to interfere with your operations, escape capture, or perhaps he didn’t die when he was thrown from the roof. We’re still work our way through the game but we’ll return to this guide and update any changes on Qasim’s future presence in the game.
