- "I heard from a friend that we can get some real hardware...like a chopper but better, partner. Much better."
- ―Yusuf Amir
In order to complete the mission the player must:
- Go to Star Junction
- Get in Yusuf's chopper
- Fly near the APC
- Shoot the bolts on the APC to release it before it reaches the police station
- Get to the APC
- Take out as many cops as you can until they back down
- Deliver the APC to the building site
Complete the mission in 7:25
Take less than 50% damage
Destroy six police cars using the APC
Take less than 50% APC damage
No more than ten shots were used to disconnect the APC
Get to Star Junction and get in Yusuf's Swift. Fly to the Skylift holding the APC. Once you get close enough, a cutscene plays. Yusuf will take the controls, and gives you an Advanced Sniper rifle. Shoot the yellow bolts holding the APC. Take out the back two then the front right and the other one (do this within 10 shots to get the Sharpshooter requirement). When the Skylift drops the tank in the air, jump out of the Swift and Parachute down to it, wherever it has landed. You now have a four-star wanted level; get to the Algonquin side and start destroying Police Cars (getting the Cop Cars Destroyed requirement is very simple). Instead of simply shooting, run over any cop car chasing you, as enough close range explosions will put the APC in flames, failing the mission. Once you're down to one star, escape the search radius normally and deliver the APC to Yusuf's construction site in Castle Gardens and receive your $10,000 reward.
- The mission's title is a common saying, referring to catching an enemy at a moment of weakness, but also a reference to the opening cutscene, in which Mr. Amir catches Yusuf dressed only in his shirt and underwear.
- The title is probably named after the song "Caught With Your Pants Down" by AC/DC, released in 1995.
- Oddly, if you shoot the Skylift enough, it will spiral down without the APC attached.
- Sometimes, there is a glitch where Yusuf won't call Luis after he enters the APC, so if the player brings the APC at the construction site, a broken cutscene will appear where Luis is alone at the construction site. If this happens, the game will freeze shortly after. This glitch is rare, however, and it is unknown what factor of the game causes it to occur.
