Devil's Drop Zone is the first mission of Just Cause (1).
Mission information from the PDA: "You have been assigned to help topple the dictator Salvador Mendoza in the Caribbean republic of San Esperito. Your first objective is to meet up with your case officer Tom Sheldon at the El Rosario beach and then make your way to the safe house. Military forces may have been alerted to your presence, so heads up."
The mission begins with a cut-scene where Rico gets his mission briefing aboard an Agency Alexander AX-14 cargo plane. He comments about San Esperitos current regime, calling it "pissant". The cutscene ends with the cargo plane's cargo door opening up and Rico Skydiving out of it.
You gain control of Rico skydiving from a cargo plane. Try to reach the beach without landing in the water, or else you'll have to find a boat or swim. You can open your Parachute at a certain point to gently glide towards the objective. You can also deploy, skydive, redeploy and close it to familiarize yourself with use of the parachute.
Once at the beach you'll have to help Tom fight off the San Esperito Military. Rico is initially armed with Holdt R4 Pitbulls, which have infinite ammunition, but note that you can pick up the weapons from the people you kill, as the Pitbulls are grossly underpowered. If you want their guns then act fast and get them immediately, because they'll disappear after some time.
Tom will then drive the MV, while you have to fend off pursuers. At first there will only be Wallys GPs following you, but soon there will be Delta 5H4 Boxhead helicopters. The helicopters should take priority as they shoot rockets which cause much more damage than the machine-guns on the jeeps.
After a short ride, you'll have to clear a roadblock. There will be 6 soldiers behind sandbags and a Scando Track Loader Extreme blocking the road. The bulldozer can't be entered in this mission and will have to be blown up. To do so, shoot at the Red Barrels or at the fuel tank in front of it.
Towards the end and just before the bridge, Tom will call 3 Agency Rage Johnston F6 Comets to get rid of the chasers. Continue to fend off the pursuers until support arrives.No enemies will chase you beyond this point and Tom will drive you to the Agency 01 - Camp Base safehouse, where the mission ends.
