- "An old, old friend was arrested in Mexico a few weeks ago. Before we could do anything to help he was extradited to the States, and now they're holding him at Fort Zancudo Military Base. It's too late to save him, so we have to green light. I would expect the same. Military resistance will be enormous, but if you take him out, so will the reward."
- — Description
The team needs to go to Fort Zancudo and eliminate an informant. When the team arrives there, a plane will take off with the informant in it. The plane needs to be shot down. If the plane escapes, the mission will fail. Once the Titan is destroyed, the team will be informed by a message from Madrazo that the informant has already talked to the District Attorney and that the DA needs to be taken out before he reaches the Davis Sheriff's Station. He will be aggressively driving a black car from Route 68 to the Great Ocean Highway. If the DA reaches the police station, the mission will fail.
- Break into Fort Zancudo.
- Take out the informant.
- Go to Madrazo's house.
- Take out the District Attorney.
- Collect the briefcase.
- Deliver the briefcase to Madrazo's house.
- This mission is considerably easier if the player owns a Buzzard Attack Chopper, Hydra or Savage.
- It is best for at least two players to play the mission. One goes for the Titan and the another stay on the roads with a fast car ready to down the DA's limo.
- The informant can be killed prior to triggering the Fort Zancudo marker before the Titan takes off. Players can use missiles from an aircraft or shoot it with an RPG or snipe the cockpit.
- Once killed, the player still needs to trigger the "Break into Fort Zancudo" marker to progress to the next stage.
- The four star wanted level from infiltrating Fort Zancudo can not be evaded naturally prior to taking out the DA, however players can call Lester Crest to have the wanted level removed.
- After the player has killed the DA, players can lose their wanted level and then come back to pick up the briefcase as it does not give the player a new wanted level.
- The mission used to be able to be completed more quickly if the player went to Sandy Shores Airfield and stole a jet from there. These were the planes that pursued the player after entering the base.
- After the Heists Update, the two Lazer jets do not spawn at Sandy Shores until after the informant has taken off, making the mission significantly more difficult for any players using the original method unless the player has bought an armed aircraft.
- As of the January 2016 Update, the informant's Titan can sometimes freeze in the air right after taking off, making it easy for the player to kill him.
- The targets in both vehicles are the driver/pilot. There are no passengers in the Titan or Stretch.
