Cortez hires Tommy to meet a courier, Pierre La Ponce, in the Washington Mall and retrieve some guidance chips that La Ponce should be delivering. Upon getting briefed by Cortez, Tommy makes his way to the mall and meets La Ponce on the second floor of the mall. Unfortunately, the GIGN ambushes the deal before La Ponce can hand over the guidance chips to Tommy. As soon as the GIGN appears, La Ponce makes a dash to some PCJ 600s parked outside, gets on one of them and tries to escape the mall, forcing Tommy to chase him and kill him to retrieve Cortez's merchandise. Upon retrieving the guidance chips, Tommy returns to the Ocean Bay Marina and gives them to Cortez, ending the mission.
