The Reapers are a Revolutionary Gang abroad Southwest Asia that believe in communism, led by Bolo Santosi. The Reapers have been a thorn in the side of the Panauan government since the 1930's. Based in the agricultural flatlands which sprawl across the island, these Maoist villagers have long preached revolution. There revolutionary goals are to bring communism to Panau and unite all citizens against the "fascist pigs". Some time later, China heard of their cause, and funded their gang in the hopes of one day taking control of the large Panuan oil fields.
During the 1930's when Asian immigrants came, they brought pro-communist Chinese with them which soon started the Reapers. During the Cold War, Panau wasn't stable and naturally NATO countries supported anti-communist ideals in Panau, while the Soviets supported pro-communist ideals, which lead to the Reapers growth due to Soviet assistance. Later when "Baby" Panay's fascist government took over Panau, the Reapers had enough people and resources and started a pro-communist revolutionary gang.
Karl Blaine describes the Reapers as a faction which follows Che Guevara's footsteps and says that they are "all about the land and the people, as long it's their land and their people". The Reapers have been known to be greedy. One of Bolo Santosi's main objectives is to control Panau and unite its people, but she wants to fill her pocket more than anything.
Their name may be a reference to another gang in the 2009 video game "inFamous" , who also wore red clothing, and is also led by a young woman.

The Reapers wear similar clothing to one another, including red scarves around their mouths and desert camouflage trousers. They have like any faction, certain soldier ranks. There's your basic Ranger, wearing desert camo pants a green shirt a red scarf and given a pistol. Next are Elites who wear desert camo pants, a shirt, a red scarf, 2 bandoleers and also have a pistol. Then they have Technicians who wear desert camo pants, a lab coat, a red scarf and are have a pistol. Rangers and Elites may pick up weapons and vehicles from fallen enemies. Notice that all faction soldiers (Reapers, Ular Boys and Roaches) are generally weak and should not be depended on during a firefight, but they do make distractions for government troops and can help when trying to make a getaway. Getting noticed near any Reapers will give you Heat.
