I'm a man of peace, but some squares across that ridge are not respecting my peace. They're survivalist maniacs! Right-wingers! Fascists! They have a Harvester and I need one. Go get it.
— The Truth

Body Harvest is the first mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas given to protagonist Carl Johnson by pot-growing hippie The Truth from the U Get Inn Motel in the town of Angel Pine in Whetstone, San Andreas.


Carl enters a motel room and finds Frank Tenpenny taking drugs. Tenpenny then introduces The Truth to Carl, and vice versa, saying that Carl will pay for the weed Tenpenny will require Carl to deliver. The Truth learns a little more about Carl and says Carl gives off a "positive feeling". Afterward, he tells Carl that before he pays the weed, he must steal a combine harvester from a farm run by survivalists up in Flint County.

Carl heads for The Farm. When he arrives, he makes his way to the back of the farm, all while avoiding or killing the Rifle and Shovel-wielding survivalists. He arrives at the combine harvester's location and steals it. Again, the survivalists continue to shoot, and even pursue him, but he safely makes his way back to The Truth's farm in Leafy Hollow. Once delivered, The Truth thanks him for his actions and says he'll call Carl when the weed is ready.

Later, Cesar calls Carl. He informs Carl of the situation back at Los Santos: His gang, the Varrios Los Aztecas, have been seriously weakened, and he, probably along with Kendl, has a price on their head. However, both of them are still safe. Carl instructs Cesar to get out of town with Kendl and rent a trailer in Angel Pine, and that he'll meet them later.

Mission Objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Get to the farm where the combine harvester is located
  • The combine harvester is located at the field towards the back of the farm
  • Get into the farm and steal the combine harvester
  • Take the combine harvester back to The Truth's farm


The reward for this mission is an increase in respect and the mission King in Exile is unlocked. The Rifle can now be purchased from Ammu-Nation.


Inside the U Get Inn Motel, Frank Tenpenny is hitting the bong in a motel room. Carl Johnson knocks on the motel room's door.
(Voice only):
Hello? Hello, somebody in there?
Tenpenny: In here.
CJ enters the motel room.
CJ: Check this shit out. What do we have here?
Tenpenny: Yo, Carl! What up, kid?
CJ: Hey, what's happening? Oh, is this undercover training? Oh, no, you must be off duty.
Tenpenny: Yeah, yeah, whatever, hush up, man. Mr. Truth here is going to be supplying you with some of the finest... (cough) weed, and you're going to deliver it for us.
CJ: Hey, man, you losing it. You're hallucinating and shit.
Tenpenny: Whuh? Oh. Yo, Truth, come here, man!
As Tenpenny continues to hit the bong, The Truth goes to greet CJ from the bathroom.
The Truth: Greetings, friend.
CJ: Wassup?
Tenpenny: Carl here is gonna be paying you your money.
CJ: What are you talking about?
Tenpenny: Now, Carl, I got a real do-gooder fucking with me, and I want you to take this evil green poison, and drop it on him. (laughs) It's going to ruin that asshole's career!
CJ: Oh, bullshit.
The Truth: Dudes, you want mushrooms? Ludes? How about some DMT?
Tenpenny: No, not for me, man. I gotta jet.
Tenpenny gets up, barely being able to walk.
Tenpenny: Oh, shit... I'm fucked up. Yo, Carl, pay the man!
The Truth: Whoa, man! I never thought I'd see that - a fed out-smoking me. What are you, dude? FBI? DEA?
CJ: No, I'm more like a private investigator.
The Truth: Friend, you give off a positive energy. How about some Vietnamese opium?
CJ: Nah, I don't get down with that.
The Truth: But how do I know I can trust you, then?
CJ: What, I'm working for you now?
The Truth: I'm a man of peace, but some squares across that ridge are not respecting my peace. They're survivalist maniacs. Right-wingers, fascists! They have a harvester and I need one. Get it, and then you can pay me. Namaste, Carl.
CJ: The fuck that mean? Later, freak.
CJ goes to The Farm run by Survivalists up in Flint County. Upon entering the premises, he gets spotted.
Survivalist #1: You come to the wrong farm, boy. This ain't no country club, fella!
Survivalist #2: Beat him down, it's all he's good for!
Survivalist #3: Hey, who is this guy?
Survivalist #4: Dunno, but he looks kinda shifty! Roll him in some pig shit!
CJ goes to get the Combine Harvester that's being driven at the farm's field.
Survivalist #5: He's a combine rustler! That son of a bitch is stealin' Betsy!
CJ steals the harvester.
Survivalist #6: Stop that dang varmint!
CJ takes the harvester to the Truth's farm in Leafy Hollow, avoiding other survivalists.
The Truth: Man, you've brought peace back to my valley. Thank you, friend. I'll call you when the whoop-de-doo is ready, just make sure you get that cash.
As CJ leaves the farm, he gets a phone call from Cesar Vialpando.
CJ: Eh.
(Voice only):
Carl, it's Cesar.
CJ: Whassup?
(Voice only):
Bad stinking shit - that's wassup, holmes.
CJ: What's wrong, where's Kendl, is she OK?
(Voice only):
She's with me, she's OK for now. The Varrios Los Aztecas, it's all over. There's a price on my head, maybe Kendl's too.
CJ: What happened?!
(Voice only):
Trust, respect, honor - they don't mean jack in Los Santos now. My OGs, my eses, all dead or in hiding, eh.
CJ: Get out of town. Head over to Angel Pine, rent you and Kendl a trailer and I'll meet you there.
(Voice only):
OK, I just got some shit to take care of and...
CJ: No! Just get my sister out of town and someplace safe! Don't shit with me on this one, I can't lose her, man!
(Voice only):
Sure thing, holmes, we'll see you in Angel Pine.


Video Walkthroughs



  • The name of the mission is a reference to the Nintendo 64 game of the same name, produced by Rockstar North when they were DMA Design. It is arguably Rockstar's first free-roaming 3D adventure, setting the precedent for GTA III to follow.
  • This is one of two missions where Tenpenny appears without his partner, Eddie Pulaski (the other one being End of the Line).
  • The Combine Harvester is scripted to churn out hay when it is driving over The Farm's field. This is the only occasion in the game where this is possible.
  • The music playing in the motel as CJ arrives is "Nautilus" by Bob James. The song can otherwise be heard on Master Sounds 98.3.
