There, his men will give them 200 kg's of the cocaine and in return, the DEA will give them heavy guns. Victor and a goon drive the drug-loaded van to the meeting point at the car park in Downtown, but are ambushed by Gonzalez' goons, who kill one of Diaz's gang members on roof tops using Sniper Rifles. Victor then clears out the place and kills all the enemies before the DEA arrive. When the deal is made, Victor drives the truck with the guns to Diaz's mansion while being chased by Gonzalez' men, but he manages to make it.
