Badlands is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, given to protagonist Carl Johnson by the C.R.A.S.H. team from the trailer near the save point in the town of Angel Pine in Whetstone, San Andreas.


After the gun battle under the Mulholland Intersection that resulted in Sweet's incarceration, Carl 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 from Angel Pine up the side of the mountain. He then flushes the witness out of the cabin, and chases him down the mountain as he attempts to flee in his car. After Carl stops and kills the witness, he photographs the evidence that Tenpenny's former colleague will no longer be talking.

(On screen) The snitch is getting away!


There is no monetary reward for this mission, but a phone call will be received from Cesar Vialpando, which triggers the mission First Date.


  • This mission is the first in GTA San Andreas requiring the use of a camera and serves as training in its use if the player isn't familiar with the camera.
  • The light blue Washington that the witness escapes in has a San Fierro license plate that reads "ASSMAN".
  • Sometimes, the witness may run over the edge of the mountain and kill himself. This can be achieved if the player destroys the car.
