Caution, might contain spoilers, though I'm at 51% completion.

It would appear that some Operation heads would not say a thing when arrested, while others would sing like birds.

Does it depend the order at which you defeat a certain OP Head ?

Example: If I take out El Emisario first he'll not say a thing, but If I take him out last, he'd have talked when interrogated during the cut scene ?

Ah, poorly chosen example, my reasoning for asking the question is:

While going after El Cerebro, they guy I end but getting tells me that I missed the real El Cerebro. He was the first buchon I got for that Head, while the last buchone I captured for the previous Head was the (real) singer that said "You better get a pen and a whole lot of paper" when prompted to talk. Right at the El Cerebro moment I got the feeling If I went after him last then the guy I caught would have ended up being the real deal leading to the Head above him and not just a dead end.


I believe the same cut scene will occur for everyone no matter what order you take them out in. For your El Emisario example, my reasoning is because:

You find him hanging by a noose.

Because some of the buchons are killed in some special way like the above or something else happens to them that is "special," I don't think the game has different cut scenes or speeches for each of these key people. I haven't found any sources stating otherwise. The only different "ending" is El Sueno's for taking out the entire cartel organization.

  • @ИвоНедев even with that example, I still feel that the cut scenes are always the same. I remember this part of the game. The "real deal" guy gets away no matter what. For what it's worth, the wiki mentions this as well for El Cerebro, but doesn't state anything about getting the real guy.
