The Black Hand is a mercenary faction appearing in Just Cause, Just Cause 3 and Just Cause 4.

This article is about the Black Hand in Just Cause. It's the same organization as in Just Cause 3 and Just Cause 4, but there's just too much information for a single article. Not to mention spoilers.


The Black Hand are President Salvador Mendoza's foreign mercenaries (officially the "foreign security specialists"). They wear black uniforms and all their vehicles are either black, or a combination of black and dark gray. See also: Faction colors.

The Black Hand are seen for the first time in the mission River of Blood, where two of their Pequod - Harpoon PC 350 patrol boats are guarding the Quayside loading area.

"The Black Hand? What the hell are they doing here?" - Tom Sheldon during the mission River of Blood. The first mention of the Black Hand in game.

After the mission Guadalicano Choo Choo the Black Hand will replace the San Esperito Military in village liberations. They have better equipment than the police and send in more and better helicopters. While the police usually equip themselves with small arms like the Harker 357 Sawback revolvers and rarely use Grenades, the Black Hand are almost the opposite. Vehicles with Mounted Guns are also seen a lot more during the liberations. At higher heat levels, the Black Hand will get involved in pursuing Rico.
