Fool's Errand is a primary mission near the end of Act I in Far Cry 2.
This mission is given by the last faction you worked for once you have completed both faction's missions. Therefore, each faction and their captain's names are generalised for this article.
Thanks to the player's efforts during his previous assignments, the current faction has grown stronger and was able to take the lead in the war, while the previous faction began losing its positions and the previous captain himself retreated from Pala to his hideout up in mount Thabamolaetsa. In order to ascertain the current faction's position in Leboa-Sako and further weaken the opposition, the player's current employer assigns the player to kill the enemy captain, who is hiding in the Goka Falls lodge.
Upon successful assassination, the player discovers that the employer has, in turn, ordered the player's own assassination, and that assassins were already waiting for him at Goka Falls. The player successfully escapes from his assassins, and is later contacted by Reuben Oluwagembi, who wants to meet with the player at the Lumber Camp.
|Pala||Receive the mission objective.|
|Goka Falls||Head to the Goka Falls lodge and kill Prosper Kouassi.|
|Goka Falls||Escape from Goka Falls.|
The reward for this mission is 20 Diamonds.
Following this mission, all uncompleted side missions in Leboa-Sako will be sealed off and will not be possible to accept ever again. That includes Buddy Side Missions, Assassination Missions, Weapon Shop Missions and Underground missions. Diamonds and Jackal Tapes can be still found at the player's own leisure, and the Predecessor tapes Missions can still be accepted as well.
Also, following this mission, Buddy rescues won't be available anymore, up until early during Act II.
