BONUS: Do not kill any loyal Mafia soldiers
Supplies & support givenEdit
The player is given as support and/or supplied with:
The renegade officers and their Mafia soldiers will open fire on the player if approached without a Russian Mafia disguise.
One renegade officer is located in Yongbyon, on the other side of the city from the Mafia HQ. He is protected by several Mafia soldiers. Civilians are nearby; attack with caution. Another officer is located at Yongbyon Station, and is protected by a handful of Mafia soldiers, one with an Anti-Air weapon. There's an officer at the NK Village, he is protected by several Mafia soldiers, one inside a Ka-50 Attack helicopter, though the pilot won't take off immediately, allowing the helicopter to be hijacked. The final officer can be found at the Temple, he will be in a Mafia SUV as part of a convoy.
The renegade officers are easily identified because they will ALWAYS have a 'Russian Mafia flag' over their head, as with all other officers. By pressing left on the D-pad, the flag of an NPC's respective nation (e.g. Russian Mafia flag for Mafia soldiers) will be displayed above their heads, having this option off will only display the flag if the NPC is an officer. The renegade officers will also have a different character model than the other NPCs, making it even easier to identify the targets.
The value of the contract is $90,000 plus an additional $30,000 if the bonus condition is also completed.
