Rewards for completing the quest
- Guapo - this is the name of the crocodile that will become your first Amigo, i.e/ pet / animal friend. He can be ordered to attack opponents.
- MS16 S Rifle - this can become one of your primary weapons in the early game.
- Unlocking rifle mods at the workbench - this is part of the tutorial.
- Unlocking Operation Do or Die.
Unlocking the mission
This quest will start in Clara's Camp, which is the first of several rebel hideouts in the game. You won't immediately receive the first mission objective, as you need to meet Clara Garcia at the camp. From her, you will learn that Juan needs to be found.
After talking to the quest giver, the game always displays a window giving you the choice to accept or decline the quest. Don't ever use the latter option, because even when you accept a new mission, in the vast majority of cases you don't need to complete it right away. It will simply remain in the journal and you can leave it for later as well.
To search for Juan, you must go to Armonia village located north of the rebel camp.
Once there, you should holster your guns as the game suggests, to avoid drawing attention - open the drop-down weapon wheel and select the option on the right (Holster). Caution - Even with your weapon holstered, avoid approaching soldiers so as not to alarm them and instigate unnecessary fights.
You can find Juan at the bar next to the beach. When you reach this location, a cut-scene will play.
Secure the beach
A direct battle will start immediately after the cut-scene. You can choose how to proceed from here and you don't have to worry about Juan.
It might be a good idea to use the FAL rifle you received automatically by completing the previous mission. You can engage in aggressive exchanges of fire or hide behind cover and look for opportunities to take safer shots. If you are seriously injured, hold down the heal button to regenerate your health bar. This method is "free", but doesn't have unlimited uses.
After winning the battle, you will learn that Guapo, an alligator tamed by Juan, has joined the main character. It will become your so-called Amigo, i.e. a pet/animal that helps you win fights and kill enemies.
Guapo can be given one of two commands (press or hold right on the d-pad) - to attack the indicated enemy or to return to you. The alligator cannot die, but if it loses its entire health bar, it needs to be "revived".
Steal some supplies for Juan
With Juan, you will reach a small enemy outpost and be tasked with obtaining the unique supplies stored there.
According to the information received, you can take part in direct battles or sneak and eliminate enemies by surprise (sneak into the enemy location from the side). It might also be a good idea to give the first commands to the crocodile, but this will alert your enemies and it's not guaranteed to be successful. Thankfully, the resulting battles shouldn't be too difficult.
There are 4 locations to explore in the enemy outpost with supplies and you can visit them in any order.
- Open the crates with regular crafting materials.
- Investigate the large supply drop (you have to hold down the interaction button) - you will get gun powder and supremo-bond (rare crafting ingredients).
- Open the large crate in the tower - you will get the MS16 S rifle.
Report back to Juan and head to Clara's camp with him, where you will first watch another cut-scene.
Use the Workbench to Resolver your weapons
You will now have to complete a tutorial on how to use workbenches, which can be used in the game world, among other things, to modify and upgrade your firearms.
For the purposes of the tutorial, you will need to upgrade the two rifles you own (FAL and MS16 S). As part of the tutorial, you will equip the first rifle with an upgrade that deals more damage to unarmored targets, and the second with an upgrade that deals more damage to armored enemies. This way, you will end up with two different weapons that are effective against different types of enemies. In the future, try to choose the weapon that is the most effective against the type of enemy soldier in order to defeat them more easily.
You should also equip one of your rifles with a mod that adds a silencer. This will turn this weapon into the perfect candidate for silently eliminating enemies at a distance.
Closing the workbench window will complete this mission.
