The ContractEdit

106 miles to sinuiju first contact

The first contact

The player is given a Street Racer to complete the contract as it relies on speed and not engaging enemy forces. Although the Street Racer is not essential to completing the contract, successful delivery will award a bonus and make the vehicle available for purchase. Throughout the contract, the player will be required to collect multiple items from various faction members, with each new item being greater in value than the last. You start with $100,000 and will lose $1,000 every second.

Similarly to 'Embedded', this contract involves driving to and interacting with multiple sites, with many obstacles along the way.

106 miles to sinuiju third contact

The third contact

The first contact is an AN soldier at Yongbyon Reactor, who will give you an American passport worth $25,000. As you leave and head over the bridge towards Chongju, there will be a crash with two civilian cars and boxes strewn about. Veer right to avoid them and continue. The second contact can be found behind a rock, after a group of KPA soldier standing around a destroyed truck. He will give you blackmail photos worth $50,000. Further along you'll encounter various NK and SK forces fighting with many destroyed vehicles and boxes along the road. Try to stay to the side of the road to avoid running over the South Koreans. When you approach the tunnel, slow down, as there are many vehicles, soldiers and barricades inside the tunnel and you may get hit by stray TOW missiles or RPGs. The next contact is at Chongju, behind a shipping container. He will give you a pouch of diamonds worth $75,000.

106 miles to sinuiju fourth contact

The fourth contact

106 miles to sinuiju fifth contact

The fifth and final contact

The third contact is near the beginning of the dirt road leading to Sinuiju. There is a large fight going on between Mafia and NK forces here so be careful. The contact is a Mafia enforcer behind a rock. He will give you stolen radio codes worth $100,000. Advancing further along the dirt road will lead you past fights between the Chinese and North Koreans, which includes tanks so watch for crossfire. The fifth and final contact is after the large fight, hiding behind a rock and a wooden fence. He will give you a list of corrupt officers, worth $150,000. After this continue towards the harbor, avoiding the Chinese and SK forces in the area, and speak to the courier at the docks to complete the contract.

Alternatively, it is also possible to use an MD-500. It has the quickest take-off and landing speeds of all helos. By flying to each location, you can more easily avoid nearly all of the obstacles and combat. Using a helo, it is possible to get over $300,000 from the contract.

106 miles to sinuiju courier

The courier

The value of the contract is variable as the value gradually decreases over time and increases with each successive contraband item obtained by the player. Completing this contract will make the M1027 Anti-Air and Street Racer (only if the bonus objective was accomplished) available for purchase from the Merchant of Menace. Intel regarding the location of the Seven of Hearts will also be given.

Subject: Contract: '106 Miles to Sinuiju'

Ok here's the deal: there's a diplomatic courier in Sinuiju Harbor that's willing to smuggle out as much contraband as he can carry, but he's charging Sergei a premium for his time. Your goal is to pick up as many items as you can and deliver them to the courier before he leaves. If, at any point, the value of the items reaches zero, we lose the contract. Got it?


Contract Terms & Conditions

1. Pick up contraband from Mafia contacts
2. Deliver the contraband to diplomatic courier

NOTE: The contract value will reduce over time. Picking up contraband will increase the value. If the contract value reaches $0, the contract will be cancelled.

Contract value: variable

I need those "packages" picked up and delivered very quick like, but the usual boring array of vehicles are not going to help either of us. No? See that brand new beauty parked across the street? You like? Yes? Give it a try and we will see if you are capable of handling such a finely tuned machine. Bring it with you to the docks in one piece and I'll make sure that the next time you visit the shop I will have another just like it available for your purchasing pleasure. But be careful not to get too far away from that car. A car like that is likely to drive itself away when you are not looking, if you know what I mean.

I guess you weren't as careful with that car as I had expected you to be. Maybe next time you stop by the shop I will let you wash mine for a little extra money.
