Karl Blaine's Residence
"People of Panau, it is I, your reverned and humble leader; Pandak Panay. Today I have chosen to shut down the den of foreign decadence known as Panau Falls Casino" - President Panay during the intro cutscene to the mission.
Shortly arriving at the supposed destination, President Pandak "Baby" Panay announces on TV that the Panau Falls Casino will be shut down and all foreigners there will be arrested. As they set foot, Jade Tan appears behind Maria Kane, pointing her gun at Maria, resulting in Rico pointing his gun at her. Shortly after informally introducing themselves, Jade Tan tells them that if they are looking for Karl Blaine, he is at Panau Falls Casino, which means he is probably in danger now. Jade Tan allows Rico to ride with her to Panau Falls on her motorbike. Rico and Jade leave for the place immediately, leaving Maria to get back on the helicopter.
Once arriving near Panau Falls, Jade Tan drops Rico off and tells him that if he hurries, he might be able to save Karl Blaine. Rico replies with a question, asking her why she does not think highly of him. She explains that if the government catches Karl Blaine, she is most probably to be the next one to be hunted for. She leaves the place in a rush, calling Rico a "Spook" and leaving him to rescue Blaine. Rico runs to the main buildings, immediately coming across hostile soldiers. After dispatching of them all, Rico encounters a troublesome grenadier, whom he eventually manages to kill. Maria informs him that soldiers have planted breaching charges to get to Karl Blaine; she also tells him that he must grapple his way up. Upon hearing this, Rico grapples his way up to disarm the breaching charges, while encountering enemies guarding the places where they are located. Once disarming them, Maria informs him that helicopters are coming his way. Rico reacts to this by taking them down. An easy way to do this is to hijack the first helicopter, then use the miniguns on the second one to take it down. Or, you could shoot it down the hard way, using the Assault Rifle to take down the first helicopter, and the second helicopter won't come up.
After taking the helicopters down, the military breach into Karl's location, meeting a hostile and disorderly and drunken Karl. Rico gets in there and helps Karl Blaine out, and a conversation starts amid the gunfire and explosions. Rico tells Karl that he is here to help him if he can get information on Tom Sheldon, while taking out soldiers at the same time. Once Karl says he possesses information on Tom Sheldon, fragmentation grenades land at their their feet. Upon seeing this, Rico tells Karl to hold on while he grabs him and jumps out of the building just in time to avoid the big explosion. Rico uses his parachute to land near Karl Blaine's car, who drives to his house while Rico fends off the military troops trying to kill them. They eventually manage to shake off the military pursuit, blowing up a gas station in the process.
Once arriving at Karl Blaine's Residence, Karl offers to download information onto Rico's PDA to help him on his mission, and also gives beacons to Rico to access the black market dealer Karl knows which will help him get weapons and vehicles. Rico leaves, giving Karl a warning that if these do not work, he would come back for him. They both seperate ways and Rico's hunt for Tom Sheldon begins.
From the information that Karl downloaded to the PDA, Rico discovers that the main three criminal factions, the Reapers, the Roaches and the Ular Boys, all want to overthrow the dictator Baby Panay as well. Kane suggests that he goes to see them, as they may have more information on the location of Sheldon.
Tips for the end pursuitEdit
- Try not to waste your ammo on the engine part of the pursuers' cars. Shoot the tires instead and make waste to their cars in no time.
- Dual-grappling one of the cars in the chase at the end of the mission to a solid object can make it crash.
- When low on health, cling to the front of Karl's car. You might still get shot but less soldiers will be able to hit you.
- Don't use Grenades. These will either bounce off whatever they hit and miss completely or do little damage to the cars pursuing you.
After the missionEdit
- In the 2009 alpha and beta versions of the game, the player had to unlock this mission, like any other mission, now it's automatically unlocked and automatically started.
- This is the only mission where you can enter the casino's Skywalk through the roof. Any other situation you would have to enter through the large glass windows on the sides of the Skywalk.
