This is a category for all missions in Just Cause 4.

Mission structure

The mission structure is completely different in this game compared to previous games. Previously missions used to come in a specific order and with specific set beginnings and ends, but it's quite a bit more complicated now.

The main storyline missions are listed as "operations". The first of these is like a normal mission, but several others are only a single cut-scene that explain the story and motivations for next missions and specific raids on bases.

There are four sets of sidemissions for different bosses, similar to JC2, however it seems that after the first of each line, these missions do not have to be done in a specific order. Instead these missions become unlocked in random order depending on how the player chooses to take over the map. Some of these missions unlock depending on a number of points with the specific boss, but they can still be completed in any order.

At the same time, there's a few points where the main storyline and the side stories cross paths by one unlocking another.


Tables / sorted lists

The actual number of missions is unknown. The below tables will be filled as information becomes available.

Main story missions

Main story missions
Name Short description
Operation Whiteout Rico arrives at Solís and meets Mira. He then attempts to destroy the Project Illapa, but fails to do this alone. The Army of Chaos is founded and the front is established. The mission "Casquillos Vacíos Reboot" begins immediately at the end of Operation Whiteout, so it's currently included in the same article.
Behind the Lines Rico assists Sargento in transporting some captured Black Hand supplies. Balloons are among these. This is technically a Sargento mission, but this mission unlocks the missions below.
At the end of the above mission, Garland King's New Star and The Secret History of Solís are unlocked, which are the opening missions for Garland King and Javi Huerta, respectively. In addition to the above two, Wanay Extraction is also unlocked. Though the aforementioned may seem like the first Region Strike, the first one was actually Casquillos Vacíos Reboot, done right after Operation Whiteout. Sidemissions are unlocked at this point, but only for Sargento until the aforementioned missions above are done. After those two are done, sidemissions for Garland King and Javi Huerta are unlocked.
The Illapa Project Pick up Izzy from a skyscraper at Quya and meet Mira. Mira explains more about Project Illapa and points out the fact that Tom Sheldon has arrived at Solís. This mission unlocks the Supply drop.
The next missions are Aeropuerto Scramble (which leads to César's Theory), Mazmorra Rescue (which leads to Meeting Lanza Moralez), and Agency Distress Beacon. These are all unlocked to allow the player to complete the story in an order of their own choosing. All of these story branches have to be completed. For convenience, Agency Distress Beacon is below because it is right after this.
Agency Distress Beacon This mission comes right after the above. This mission is only a cut-scene. Tom explains why he's at Solís and apparently he wants to help. He also explains more about Zona Dos and says to raid it in the future. In order to safely approach Zona Dos, Rico has to first raid Meteo Lab to obtain the needed technology to construct the Thunderbarge vehicle. The mission "Operation Thunderbarge" will be a raid on Zona Dos.
Thunderbarge: Obtaining The Ion Coil This mission is unlocked after the Sargento mission "Meteolab Grab". During a Lightning storm, you have to trigger 3 lightning rods and then get the Ion Coil. The mission also shows how Rico and Tom feel about eachother.
Thunderbarge: Ion Coil Delivery The Ion Coil has to be transported from Meteolab to the nearby Prospero Astillero shipyard.
Operation Thunderbarge This is where Rico uses the Thunderbarge boat to raid the Zona Dos base. After the raid Tom reveals a nearby old Agency outpost and the fate of Ricos father Miguel Rodriguez.
César's Theory This mission is a cut-scene only. It sets up several of the next missions that include raids on bases like Zona Tres. A guy called César has figured out that tornadoes are all controlled. He accuses "reptile alines" and "nordics", but excludes "grey aliens". He also believes that Oscar Espinosa is a reptile alien.
Windwalker: The Stormchaser Protect a transport helicopter on its way from Zona Tres to Prisa Automóvil. The mission also explains more of the plans for next missions.
Windwalker: Diversion Drive a Falconer AA Tank around Nueva Voz and keep the Black Hand busy for a while.
Operation Windwalker This is about using the Stormchaser vehicle to follow a tornado and destroying a tower at the destination.
Mazmorra Rescue Raid the La Mazmorra prison to break out Lanza Morales. This is technically a Region Strike.
Meeting Lanza Moralez This mission is only a cut-scene. Rico, Mira and Lanza meet at the prison cell to discuss their plans. These plans set up the next few missions.
Sandstinger: Train Robbery Hijack a train and use a gun turret to protect it.
Operation Sandstinger Drive an Army of Chaos train through the desert, surrounded by Black Hand soldiers. Then raid the Zona Uno base and destroy it.
The last mission is unlocked when the following missions are complete: Operation Thunderbarge, Operation Windwalker, Operation Sandstinger, Atalaya Strike.
Operation Illapa Rico and the Army of Chaos attack the Illapa base. Rico destroys the base and kills Oscar Espinosa. See the mission article for any spoilers.

Javi Huerta missions

Javi Huerta missions
Name Points needed to unlock Short description
The Secret History of Solís None Rico meets Javi and learns about Otorongo. Javi also explains that Oscar Espinosa holds power illegally and learning more history will help to prove this. This mission tells Rico to look for ancient tombs and to trigger them. This reveals fragments of history.
A Relic To Wreck None This is available at multiple locations. It's about destroying a vehicle that transports a fake relic. This can be considered a sidemission.
A Precious Cargo None Drive the provided vehicle to the marked area. No time limit and nobody chasing.
The Lost Tomb of Otorongo Find and unseal all tombs Javi calls Rico immediately after the last tomb is unsealed. Javi finally has all lines from Otorongo's riddle. He has assembled them into a short poem that reveals the location of Otorongo's grave: Quya.

Garland King missions

Garland King missions
Name Points needed to unlock Short description
Garland King's New Star 0 Rico meets Garland who asks him to help her movie project by being her main stuntman. She also needs Rico to help her fake her death to avoid the troublesome paperwork and permits that would otherwise hinder her movie project.
Scene: The Dawnflower 1500 Drive a buggy to deliver a flower that will cure some girl of an unknown illness.
Scene: Axman's Juggernaut 3500 This mission involves Rico doing stunts and driving around the alpine region in an F1 car. This also unlocks the Mugello Farina Trio. There are Black Hand roadblocks among other obstacles.
Scene: Jewel In The Sun 3500 Race a 2019 Vistosa Supercar against a stuntman to re-enact a supposed race against Mario Frigo.
Scene: Vanessaaaa! 6000 Race a Coyle Mambo in the desert and drive off a bridge.
Car on car Sidemission This reoccurs at multiple locations and only when Rico is already in a vehicle. Garland says that there's a stuntman in a nearby vehicle and you have to destroy their vehicle. And you have to stay in the vehicle, because apparently it would otherwise be an editing nighthmare.
Lose the fuzz Sidemission Rico has to take a provided sports car (usually a Verdeleon Eco or 2019 Vistosa Supercar) and out-drive the Black Hand. This is needed because they're filming a chase sequence, so they tipped off the Black Hand about Rico's position.
Camera-Ready Sidemission One of the film crewmen at Aeropuerto General Benitez wants you to fly a EM-909 Private Jet across the sea to Quya. The target is close to the ground and the plane does not need to survive.
Wire Action Sidemission A stuntman is standing on a beach, or dock. There's a speedboat near him, driven by a person from the film crew. The stuntman wants to be grappled to the boat. Garland King calls too and explains that the Black Hand confiscated some of their cable equipment. The mission passes when the person is grappled to the boat. Alternatively, the mission may be set inland and involve a helicopter, but the dialogue is the same.
Cut During The Chase Complete all the above "scene" missions. Drive Garland to the movie premiere.
