The Extortionist Dialogue

Kinda busy right now! Although… Hang on a sec. There is an urgent matter. There was a firefight about an hour ago in the garages across the river. Just where my errand boy was headed. To h*** with him, he was a total moron anyway. But he had with him one particular key. A mighty complex key, I might add. To the door that can be freaking anywhere, you know? This clown was delivering one very valuable thing to me. The b****** hid it somewhere and locked it with this arsetormenting key and came to me to talk up the price. What a b****! I even raised the pay a little for the smart move, but this w***** still hasn’t told me where it was and went to get it for himself. And I’m almost sure he’s got done in there. Find the key, and then find me that package even if you have to check all doors from the center to the port.

You’re a d*** Pinkerton! Helped me out big time! So, you found my idiot errand boy? Well, screw him. If you do something similar, you’ll get smoked like him too. Go on, buzz off, I’ve got some stuff to do.

For this quest, you will need the Unknown Key because you will need to unlock one of the metal shacks on Customs. So, let’s see where the messenger body is, because he always has the Unknown Key in himself, considering it’s a part of a quest. He can be found in a bush next to the gap in the wall between the garages and crackhouse. Check the images below.

Now once you loot him, you will get the unknown key and head directly east. You will need to reach the big open parking area, close to the building where you can turn the electricity on. Outside, there’s a metal shack that can be opened by using the Unknown key.

Once you unlock the door and get inside, you’ll see a piece of cloth on the ground. The valuable cargo is just under it. Check the image below:

Once you pick up the item, make sure you extract without dying. Good luck!

I am ANGE1K. I started playing video games a long time ago. In a blink of an eye, I became a hardcore gamer. A couple of years later, I traversed to the professional Counter-Strike 1.6 scene. After the competitive ERA, I managed to find the gaming industry amusing and started working on FGR. 8 years after founding FGR, my mission remains the same. That is to discover secrets within the gaming industry, create guides for all the games I play, and provide you with some important news. Oh, yeah, I post tons of patch notes too. At the time, I play everything that seems reasonable to play, make content about it and help gamers to the best of my abilities. P.S. Last time I counted how many hours I've spent in video games turned out to be 13+ years. And that was a long time ago too. Almost 24/7 in front of PC.
