ULTOR EXEC SURVIVES CAR ACCIDENT
Stilwater Gazette newspaper headline

Overview

Ultor CEO Eric Gryphon (Dane Vogel's replacement) meets with Pierce at $tock$, expressing his interest in meeting with Playa. Gryphon needs the 3rd Street Saints to provide him protection from Dex's Masako. In return, Gryphon will provide Playa with information on Dex, who had previously tried to kill Playa and Julius in a church[1].[2]

Playa successfully defends Gryphon's Status Quo from an Oppressor and escorts him to the Saints Hideout. Sometime after the events, Gryphon meets Dex outside the Phillips Building, with Gryphon coming to the assumption that Dex can't have him killed at work. Gryphon warns Dex that he's out of his league, and Dex replies that Gryphon is out of touch.[3]

Story

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

Known philanthropist Eric Gryphon has miraculously survived a brutal car crash that has left dozens dead. While Mr. Gryphon was unavailable to comment, his co-worker and close friend Dexter Jackson says this of the ordeal, "I'm just happy that Eric is ok.". In unrelated news, police have been unable to figure out how several hundred shell casings appeared on the Stilwater Freeway.

Gameplay

Protect Gryphon's Limo[4]

Playa rides in the back of a Side Shooter, protecting Eric Gryphon who is in a Status Quo on the freeway. There are Masako in FBI SUVs, Bears, Oppressors, and a Tornado.

The Side Shooter starts in the same park as the mission marker.[5][6] Exiting the mission while in the Side Shooter places Playa at the east end of the same park.

A AR-50 w/Grenade Launcher with infinite ammunition is provided, including infinite grenades which can be a challenge due to the delay of firing the grenade and the grenade landing.[7]

Partway through the Downtown section of the freeway, the Side Shooter flies ahead to deal with a group of Masako on an overpass, as a Destroy flies past in the background.[8] Despite the Masako not blocking the road, Gryphon refers to it as a roadblock.

There is a roadblock of Bears in the middle of the freeway bridge across the river, and the limo driver is killed.[9]

The Side Shooter circles around the roadblock several times before a Masako Tornado shows up, and the Side Shooter crashes.

Checkpoint
Rescue Gryphon and get back to the Saints Hideout[10]

Gryphon remains in the Status Quo until approaching it.[11] Once the Status Quo is reached, Gryphon exits and becomes a Homie, armed with a K6 Krukov.[12]

The Status Quo cannot be entered. The Bears can be entered, and there health can be reset by cancelling the mission and restarting from the checkpoint.[13]

The destination is the Saints Hideout, to the south, but the GPS shows a route headed north.[14] A faster way to reach the destination is to jump off the bridge into the water and warp to shore.[15]

Success

Reach the Saints Hideout to complete the mission.

Failure

The mission fails if Gryphon's Limo is destroyed,[16] or if Gryphon is abandoned or killed.[17][18]

Transcript

"Opportunity Knocks" cutscene

Eric Gryphon: "I wanted to talk to the leader of the Saints."
Pierce: "I wanted some Freckle Bitch's and a blowjob, but I've learned to deal with disappointment. Whatchu need from the Saints?"
Eric Gryphon: "I need protection."
Pierce: "That's probably one of the things you should have thought of 'fore you tried to have the boss killed in a church."
Eric Gryphon: "I had nothing to do with that – you really need to separate the man from the company."
Pierce: "I'm just sayin' attempted murder doesn't breed trust."
Eric Gryphon: "We're on the same side."
Pierce: "I ain't gonna lie, I think that's pretty fuckin' unlikely."
Eric Gryphon: "Look, Dex's people are on their way. If I don't get out of here soon, the Masako are gonna kill me."
Pierce: "Dex? Ain't he part of the Ultor family?"
Eric Gryphon: "Families fight."
Pierce: "Yeah, but they don't try to kill each other."
Eric Gryphon: "Tell that to Julius."
Pierce: "You got something on Dex or not?"
Eric Gryphon: "You get me through this alive and you'll find out."

Gameplay

Eric Gryphon: "Dex's team is on the way. Keep them away from me."
Playa: "Just keep driving and we won't have a problem."
Eric Gryphon: "Clear that roadblock!"
Eric Gryphon: "We can't wait any longer - kill them!"
Eric Gryphon: "Did you have to make such a mess?"
Playa: "Quit your bitching, you're still alive, aren't you?"
Playa: "We gotta move fast! I can't get a shot with this shit in the way!"
Eric Gryphon: "It appears I'm going to need a new driver..."
Playa: "That's not good..."
Playa: "This ain't how I pictured my day going!"

"Milestone Goal Failed" cutscene

Dex: "How was your weekend, Eric?"
Eric Gryphon: "Busy. Yours?"
Dex: "Disappointing."
Eric Gryphon: "Get used to it."
Dex: "I'm surprised you didn't call in sick."
Eric Gryphon: "Well. I figure you can't kill me at the office."
Dex: "I'm head of security; I can do whatever I want."
Eric Gryphon: "You're out of your league, Dex."
Dex: "No, you're just out of touch."
Eric Gryphon: "Maybe. See you at the exec meeting."
