"Burden of Proof" is the second of three missions in the Ultor Exposed DLC.

EXPECT HIGHWAY DELAYS
Stilwater Gazette newspaper headline

OverviewEdit

After Ultor pays Channel 6 to not run the story regarding the bodies Playa and Tera delivered in the previous mission, the two discuss what to do next at the Saints Hideout. Tera concludes that the chemical truck that Ultor is currently moving would provide stronger proof against Ultor than the bodies, and they both leave to find it.[1]

After delivering the truck with the chemicals to Channel 6, Playa tries to convince Jane Valderamma to launch the story. However, Jane states that she wants a personal interview with Tera, believing "a whistleblower endangering their lives for justice" is a better way to get ratings.[2]

StoryEdit

The following text has been transcribed verbatim from the game files.
Upon completion of the mission, it is available in-game at Newspaper Clipboards.

Rush hour was worse than usual today thanks to yet another highway battle involving the 3rd Street Saints. While the target of the hijacking remains unknown, the aftermath of a speeding truck with no regard to traffic laws is all too familiar to the people of Stilwater.

GameplayEdit

Get to the truck[3]

The chemical truck to steal is located on the highway and is being escorted by two Five-Os.[4] The GPS route leading to the truck is a little misleading; be sure to drive up onto the highway when nearing the access ramp.

Stop the truck without destroying it[5]

When nearing the truck, either shoot it until it is forced to stop or pull ahead and shoot the driver through the windscreen. After some dialogue from Tera, the next segment of the mission begins.

Although the objective specifies not destroying the truck, it is very difficult to destroy it by mistake, but it can be done by using the EDF Scout to repeatedly strike it with rocket.

Checkpoint
Protect the truck[6]

Regardless of where the truck is stopped, the Checkpoint begins near the Ultor Dome.[7]

As Tera drives towards the airport to store the truck and its chemicals, an AR-50 w/Grenade Launcher is provided with infinite ammo on the back of the truck in order to protect the truck from all attackers, which initially include just Five-Os and Tornadoes, but later also involves EDF Scouts.[8] The latter two vehicles are more deadly than the Five-Os, so one should remember to use the under-slung grenade launcher on the assault rifle.

When passing Semi Broken, a Destroy takes off from the north[9] and flies overhead before flying off to the east.[10]

When Tera finally reaches the airport, the mission is complete.[11]

Failure

The mission can be failed by destroying the truck,[12], or allowing it to escape.[13]

TranscriptEdit

"If At First You Don't Succeed..." cutsceneEdit

Playa: "I told you."
Tera: "This doesn't make any sense. You handed them a huge story."
Playa: "Ultor handed them money."
Tera: "Couldn't you force Valderamma to do something?"
Playa: "I'll see what I can do but we're gonna need some proof beyond a couple of bodies. You came to me with this whole thing - you got any other ideas?"
Tera: "If they want proof, our best bet is to get our hands on the chemicals while Ultor is moving them."
Playa: "Alright, let's go."

GameplayEdit

Tera: "There's the chemical truck!"
Playa: "Alright, let's take it!"
Tera: "Alright, get in the back and cover us. Ultor isn't going to like losing a shipment."
Tera: "Let's stash this thing at the airport until we get a hold of Jane."
Playa: "The fuck is that thing?"
Tera: "They sent the Scout Prototype? Huh, wow..."
Playa: ""Scout Prototype"? What the hell are you talkin' about?"
Tera: "It's Eric Gryphon's pet project - he wanted an ATV to scout for prime mining locations."
Playa: "Why does a mining vehicle need a goddamn turret?"
Tera: "Hey, you gotta blast through rock. Makes sense to em..."
Playa: "Where the hell are you people planning on mining?"
Tera: "Trust me, you wouldn't believe me if I told you."
Tera: "We're almost there! Just buy us a little more time."
— Once the truck has stopped

"Contract Negotiations" cutsceneEdit

Playa: "Jane, come on, it's a great story."
Jane Valderamma: "I want an interview."
Playa: "What?"
Jane Valderamma: "Corporate greed stories are a dime a dozen, I want something more. A whistleblower endangering their lives for justice... that's how you get ratings."
Playa: "I don't know if she'll go for it."
Jane Valderamma: "Then I'm not running your story."
Playa: "Fine, I'll go talk to her."
