Armed Escort Quests

In Armed Escort quests, you will need to ride on top of a Golden Path truck and blast any enemies while it drives to its destination. You will encounter tricks such as fake accidents, as well as enemy vehicles, so you’re going to want to be packing a RPG or grenade launcher. Luckily, there is usually a grenade launcher on a crate somewhere near the location of the truck you need to protect.

The truck’s health is at the top of the screen, so keep an eye on it just in case something happens and it gets low. Should that occur, then hop off the top of the truck and use your Repair Tool (if it’s damaged enough, you’ll get the option to use it) to fix it back as good as new. Note that the truck will not move unless you’re on top of it.

You'll need to protect the truck from point A to point B, so be sure to bring some strong firepower.

There’s a total of eight Armed Escort quests in the game, with them unlocked after liberating Bell Towers. Completing two and all eight will give you a Rupees bonus, while you unlock the Predator signature weapon in the shops.
