- We kill Orejuela, and the Colombians'll be all up our ass. Let's figure out what his game is first, then we'll decide what to do. You know where he is?
Dex and Troy meet The Protagonist once again at the church to discuss their plan of action. With Hector Lopez now dead, the Carnales are feeling the hurt. Troy recommends they kill Manuel Orejuela next, as he's "the mouth piece for the Colombians", thus crippling the Carnales for good. Dex notes that this isn't such a good idea, and instead opts to go and meet Manuel first, and then decide what to do. Dex leaves with The Protagonist after hearing that Manuel is at a strip club in Los Carnales' territory.
The following text has been transcribed verbatim from the game files.
It can be read in-game upon completion of the mission by pausing the game, and selecting 'Story' from the 'INFO' tab.
- Stake out Manuel at the strip club.
This mission has a forgiving timer to reach the strip club in the Airport District.
- Lose the Carnales and return to the church.
Simply following the GPS route on the Map back along the freeway is a safe method of escaping Victor. Watch out for other Carnales enemies as the Notoriety builds up. Avoid their vehicles, kill their drivers if necessary and keep driving at maximum speed along the freeway.
While Victor Rodriguez is invincible during this mission, his Bulldog isn't, and can be destroyed with a few rounds from an RPG Launcher. Destroying his vehicle causes him to give chase on foot, although he does not have any weapons and is essentially no longer a threat.
Victor is also immune to fire, and cannot be set alight via Molotov Cocktails or exploding vehicles. Despite this, he can still be ragdolled by explosions, so an effective way to get rid of him for good is to throw him off the bridge using an explosive weapon.
- You've lost them. Return to the church.
Once Victor has been lost, return to the church.
There is also an unused failure condition in the game strings for not reaching the strip club fast enough, but this cannot be triggered, as the timer is not activated in the mission script.
"The Colombian Connection" cutscene Edit
- Dex: "So this guy's the mouth piece for the Colombians huh?"
Dex: "And he's in town."
Troy: "We've taken out one of the Carnales' legs. We smoke this guy and they're crippled for good."
Dex: "Yeah, and so are we. We kill Orejuela, and the Colombians'll be all up our ass. Let's figure out what his game is first, then we'll decide what to do. You know where he is?"
Troy: "Yeah, well, I'd start with the strip clubs."
Dex: "Cool. Alright man, let's go buy this drug lord a lap dance."
- — "The Colombian Connection" cutscene
- Dex: "Aight, let's go and swing by the strip club and wait to see who shows up."
Dex: "When we get to Manuel just let me do all the talkin' 'aight? I'd hate for us to fuck things up with the Columbians because you said some crazy shit that pisses him off."
Dex: "With Hector taken out, his brother Angelo is probably callin' the shots... lucky for us he doesn't have his shit together... it'll probably take him a while before he's got the crew organized enough to make a move on us..."
Dex: "If and when Angelo finally steps, he's gonna send Victor to do the job... now I know you think you're all badass and everything, but trust me Victor ain't no joke... you run into that asshole you make sure you got some serious back up."
Dex: "Okay, let's sit tight, Manuel should be here soon."Dex: "Fuck the Colombian, we gotta get outta here!"Victor Rodriguez (translation): "No one messes with Los Carnales!"
Victor Rodriguez (subtitle): "(Spanish)"

Dex: "Can't you go any faster!"
Dex: "Go, Go, Go!"
Dex: "Victor ain't lettin' up!"
Dex: "Victor's still on our ass!"
