Chemical Heist is a mission in Just Cause 2.
The mission starts and ends in the small town Pekan Teluk Tengah.
Bolo Santosi has heard of a new chemical being produced by the government, which will subdue the population and give the Panauan government control over them. Bolo wants you to retrieve samples of this new chemical from the laboratory where it's being studied and return them to her, so she can use them for certain "better uses".
You'll be provided with ammunition and a Rowlinson K22. Enter the helicopter and fly towards the target.
Once you're there, head over to the first laboratory. If you managed to destroy the SAM's, you'll be able to land next to the lab. Plant Triggered Explosives on the big fan, that's on the roof and detonate them to get inside the laboratory. Deal with the sentry gun inside, take the health packs that are near the door and finally take the sample.
Head over to the second laboratory and repeat the same procedure. Finally, head to the third laboratory. Upon getting closer the scientist will take the sample and try to run away. Kill him. If you're good enough at using the Grappler, it's possible to drag him off the platform to his death before he reaches even the first staircase, or you can chase after him and shoot him. Once killed you can pick up the sample he was carrying. Once you have all three samples, get to the ground quickly.
Beware that if the scientist gets into the helicopter, hijacking it can cause the sample to stick in mid air. Hitting it with the grappler may make it fall to someplace reachable.
There are several ways to return the samples to Bolo Santosi.
The easiest wayEdit
The way this mission is meant to be played, is to grapple ones way to the top of the building where the scientist was going. There's a helicopter there. You might as well just go there straight away, clear the area, and kill the scientist as he walks towards you.
The other ways are for those who think that's too easy, or don't know about the conveniently close helicopter spawn point.
Other way 1Edit
Head to the cliff-face that you flew past when entering the base. A small military helicopter will appear, grapple onto it and hijack it. Head to the drop-off point. Helicopter(s) will come after you, it is your choice whether you outrun them or stop to destroy them. Once reaching approximately 1.6 kilometers from your destination you'll activate a timer. Get to the box before this timer runs out or the chemicals will evaporate. This is only difficult, if your bad at flying a helicopter since this mission is meant to be completed with a helicopter, so you should have just enough time.
Other way 2Edit
Jump off of the third laboratory and find a long strip of ice with no obstacles and make sure you're facing the destination point. Call the Black Market dealer and buy a Pell Silverbolt 6 for $30000 (if you have any spare vehicle parts you can upgrade it, but two stars is more than enough to complete the mission easily). Enter the Silverbolt and start flying towards the destination. None of the chopper will be able to get close to you. The counter still starts at approximately 1.6 kilometers, but that's an ample amount of time. At about 1 kilometer you can start to tilt the nose of the airplane. Jump out about one hundred meters from the destination, but make sure the plane will not blow up near you. Grapple down whichever roads you need to and press the activate button when you reach the box.
Other way 3Edit
You're at the top of a cliff, and just parachuting down at speed will land you at the drop-off point in plenty of time. The choppers will stop bothering you since you're no longer drawing additional heat.
- There are no Reapers waiting for Rico at Pekan Teluk Tengah when the mission ends. The chemical was melting already, so it's unknown what becomes of it. It would not have been difficult for the game developers to add a Reapers Saas PP30 Ox and say that it contains a good refrigerator.
