Badlands is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas given to the protagonist as part of the next chapter in the story following his exile from Los Santos, and is the first in a series of missions performed outside of Los Santos for Frank Tenpenny, the game's principal antagonist.
After the gun battle under the Mulholland Intersection that resulted in Sean "Sweet" Johnson's incarceration, Carl Johnson is taken out of the city of Los Santos to begin performing tasks for C.R.A.S.H. officers Frank Tenpenny and Eddie Pulaski. The first of these tasks is a favor for Tenpenny, who asks Carl to eliminate an ex-police officer being held by the FBI under a witness protection program. The witness, who has compromising information about Tenpenny, is hiding in a remote cabin located on the side of Mount Chiliad. Carl, disarmed by the officers, and carrying only a camera, is forced to make his way up the side of the mountain, flush the witness out of the cabin, and chase him down the mountain as the witness attempts to flee by car. After Carl stops and kills the witness, he photographs the evidence that Tenpenny's former colleague will no longer be talking.
The Catalina Path missions are unlocked by completing this mission.
