Toreno: "You boys done playing around?"
T-Bone: "Yeah, we're straight, vato."
Toreno: "Oh good, that's great. Now, we gotta go meet this shipment. We're already late as it is."
Mike Toreno and T-Bone Mendez, after they've finished intimidating Carl Johnson

Outrider is the final mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas given to protagonist Carl Johnson by the Loco Syndicate from Carl's garage in the Doherty district of San Fierro, San Andreas.


Jizzy B. phones Carl and tells him, in a very suspiciously friendly tone, to get to a car in the Xoomer gas station at Easter Basin. T-Bone Mendez is waiting for Carl there.

He makes his way to the car and sees that nobody is there. As he gets in, T-Bone appears from the backseat and threatens to kill Carl, since he suspects him of working for someone else, and has another true purpose. Carl says he's only working for money, which prompts T-Bone to move the gun away from his face. Mike Toreno suddenly appears and asks if they are done. Since they are, they make their way to a drug shipment nearby.

Carl collects a sniper rifle, as well as a rocket launcher, and hops on a Sanchez. He then destroys the road blocks of Greenwoods created by the Da Nang Boys. After all the four roadblocks are removed, he guards the shipment safely back to the yay factory in Doherty. Once there, Carl tells a San Fierro Rifa gang member to get the van out of sight, as cops will come snooping around real soon.

Mission Objectives

In order to complete the mission the player must:

  • Go to the car
  • Drive to the van's location
  • Pick up the escort bike
  • Take out the first roadblock before the van gets there
  • Use the rocket launcher to destroy the roadblocks
  • Clear the next roadblock
  • Clear the next roadblock
  • Destroy the final roadblock
  • Make sure the van gets to its destination safely


The rewards for this mission are $9,000 and an increase in respect. The mission Snail Trail is unlocked.

Tips and Tricks

  • Similarly to the the Seville Boulevard Families gang members in the mission Sweet's Girl, the Da Nang Boys in this mission will not shoot at the player until they are shot; thus, if the player has obtained satchel charges before the mission, it is possible to place satchel charges on all the gang members and kill them all at once.


  • The license plate of the Washington has 'OMEGA' written on it.
  • If you look closely before CJ gets into the car at the gas station in the second cutscene, you may notice that the roof is slightly raised compared to other Washingtons. It is unknown why.
  • After you complete this mission, a three-star wanted level is attained.
  • If the player already has a Sniper Rifle with lots of ammunition, the Sniper Rifle won't spawn.
  • If in the first roadblock there's a group of San Fierro Triads hanging around, they'll offer assistance shooting at the Da Nang Boys in the roadblock. Be careful, though, if you shoot accidentally any Triads, they'll retaliate and you'll have two gangs after you.
  • This is one of few missions wherein a gang uses a gang car that they do not normally use, in this case a Greenwood though the Grove Street Families are still disbanded as of the events of this mission. Others includes Catalyst, Drive-Thru and Sweet & Kendl, in which the Ballas also uses a Greenwood (Catalyst only) and a Voodoo for the remaining two missions.
