There are multiple possible different Steal Cargo mission scenarios that a player can encounter when sourcing air-freight cargo to export as part of the Air Freight Cargo missions in the Smuggler's Run Update.

Some of these scenarios will require an additional player to start, while the vast majority can be completed single handedly. Note that, like Special Cargo and Supply source missions, when the player has multiple associates, the respective amount of cargo will be available for the players to collect (for example, 4 players in the Organization will result in 4 air-freight cargo collections available in one mission). It must also be noted that, despite this, Motorcycle Clubs with more than 4 active prospects will still only be given a maximum of 4 cargo collections during the mission.

Signal Jammers

Several signal jammers are stopping the location of the supplies from being tracked. The player is provided with a FH-1 Hunter helicopter to destroy the jammers, and track the cargo down. The cargo is transported in a mobile vehicle, often a Brickade which can either be stolen and taken to the Hangar, or destroyed, and the player pick up the cargo themselves.

Pairs of Buzzard Attack Choppers will pursue the player after collection.

Cargo Planes

3 black Cargo Planes are flying across the state. They are each protected by 3 black P-996 LAZERs. The player is given a V-65 Molotok to take down the cargo planes and surrounding jets to collect the cargo. The cargo package will parachute down slowly to allow the player to fly to it, automatically collecting it.

Pairs of Buzzard Attack Choppers will pursue the player after collection, as well as more black Lazer jets.

Merryweather Jets

Multiple waves of around 5 Merryweather P-996 LAZER jets are flying around in formation, one of which contains a cargo package. The player is given a P-45 Nokota to destroy the jets and collect the package.

Pairs of Buzzard Attack Choppers will pursue the player after collection.


The player is given a Howard NX-25 stunt plane to perform exciting stunts around the state. The stunts involve flying under bridges and performing knife flights, each eligible stunt is marked on the radar as a blue (bridges) or red (knife flights) marker, and knife flight zones are marked in-game between buildings with red stripes. These stunts increase an excitement level, indicated at the bottom right of the HUD. Once the excitement level has been reached, the location of the cargo is marked on the radar.

The cargo will be found in a land vehicle, such as a Mule cargo truck. The player can either drive the truck to the hangar, or alternatively destroy it, and collect the cargo on-foot.

Titan Rendezvous

A Titan containing a cargo package is flying across the state, preparing to drop off the package. The player is given a Mogul to protect the Titan from enemy helicopters; pairs of Buzzard Attack Choppers will spawn every so often, using their on-board miniguns to attack the Titan. The health of the Titan is indicated on the HUD. The distance from the drop-off is also indicated on the HUD, starting from 20,000 feet. Note that the Buzzards that attack the Titan are immune to missile lock, and will need to be taken out without the aid of homing missiles.

Once the drop-off location is reached, the package falls from the plane on a parachute, allowing the player to fly to it and collect it mid-air.

Salvage Site

Offshore, a rival organisation have a cargo package. Multiple Dinghy boats and a Tug towing a float, with Tanker Trailers, Krakens, and containers on board, are found in the area offshore. A Cargobob attempting to land is also found above one of the floats.

The player is given a Tula aquatic plane to take out the competition, before landing the plane, and collecting the package. The cargo is found underwater, so the player is given a rebreather to dive down to its location and collect it, before flying back to the hangar.

Terminal Base

The player is provided with an LF-22 Starling to perform a bombing raid on a rival outfit's base of operations. The player is required to destroy multiple targets parked on the ground which are being defended by enemy personnel. These can include vehicles, trailers, helicopters and crates.

Once all the targets are cleared, the location of the package is revealed nearby, in an unattended helicopter. This can be a Maverick, Frogger or Buzzard Attack Chopper, and the player must return it to their hangar.

On the return trip, the player will be pursued by pairs of Froggers or Buzzard Attack Choppers.
