Los Desperados is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, given to protagonist Carl Johnson by his brother Sweet from his home in Ganton, Los Santos, San Andreas.


CJ drops by Sweet's house in Grove Street and starts to talk about the hood and the riot going on. After a little argument, Cesar Vialpando, a close friend, appears and says that his hood is screwed up and he needs to get his gang back together. CJ agrees and they recruit two Grove Street gang members for help while meeting up with three Aztecas veterans, Sunny, Hazer and Gal in Unity Station.

Upon arriving there, they all start to attack the waves of Vagos gang members protecting El Corona. After clearing out the houses by the railway, they head deeper in the turf on an alleyway. The Vagos manage to injure Hazer shortly before being completely cleared out. The crew go to the serious part of the district and the last wave of Vagos have gang members carrying flamethrowers and rocket launchers. CJ and the rest of the team manage to survive the gunfight, thus the Aztecas taking over El Corona. Cesar and his fellow homies decide to get Hazer to a hospital and thank CJ for helping out.


(On the phone)

Sweet Johnson: Yeah, so get the place locked down. No one's gonna ruin the hood. You hear me? No one! Alright, see you.

(Sweet hangs up, Carl comes in)

Carl Johnson: Whattup?

Sweet Johnson: We almost got the hood under control, man. CJ, this is some serious shit, man.

Carl Johnson: Hey, man, I know, man. I went through a lot of shit for this family since you been gone, so I know.

Sweet Johnson: What? For yourself. Not for the family. Don't get shit confused, nigga.

Carl Johnson: Man, when you gonna give me a break?

Sweet Johnson: When you stop acting like you the man. You keep yapping on what you done did, let me tell you what I done did. When Kendl needed shoes, I went out and got the money. When Moms needed an operation, I robbed people for the bread. While you were off in Liberty City thinking about your own shit. For five years, come on man. Now you do something, you want a fucking parade? Nigga, please.

Carl Johnson: That ain't fair man.

(Cesar arrives)

Cesar Vialpando: Carl, man, I need your help.

Carl Johnson: Man, I'm kinda busy right now. Family shit.

Cesar Vialpando: I helped you guys, hombre. It's time you helped me and my homies. My hood's screwed up too. We got this shitty neighborhood on lockdown now.

Carl Johnson: Alright, what you need?

Cesar Vialpando: It's time to get my old gang back together, push out those yay-slanging punks, eh.

Carl Johnson: I know, but I got a lot going on right here in my own hood, man. And I made my brother a promise.

Sweet Johnson: All your brother wants you to do is to pay back your debts, CJ.

Carl Johnson: Alright, I hear you. I got your back - c'mon, let's roll.

Cesar Vialpando: Orale! The Varrio's coming back!


Carl Johnson: OK, so what's the plan?

Cesar Vialpando: We're going to meet three of my veterano's over at Unity Station.

Carl Johnson: Three, is that all? A'ight, I'm a get a couple of Family boys to come through too.

(While recruiting)

Cesar Vialpando: Shit's real serious, man, look at the streets, eh.

Carl Johnson: Yeah, we better watch ourselves, man.

Cesar Vialpando: Don't want to get caught on Ballas turf while this shit's going down.

Carl Johnson: Man, Tenpenny brought the central to its knees.

(In the car)

Cesar Vialpando: While we here, I, eerr, I have a question to ask you.

Carl Johnson: Yesh? What?

Cesar Vialpando: Well it's... it's personal.

Carl Johnson: Come on, man, we're brothers, you and me. You can ask me anything.

Cesar Vialpando: OK, here goes. I want to ask Kendl the question.

Carl Johnson: What's the problem? Call here, dude, here, use my phone.

Cesar Vialpando: Noo, holmes, THE question!

Carl Johnson: What? Oh shit, you mean POP THE question. Well, I'm OK with that, you know, I appreciate you asking my permission and shit but -

Cesar Vialpando: Nah. I know you're cool. It's Sweet that is the problem, could you talk to him?

Carl Johnson: Sure thing, Cesar, I'll talk to him.

Cesar Vialpando: Thank you, CJ, that means a lot to me.

(Carl, Cesar and two GSF members arrive at Unity Station)

Sunny: Those Vagos, man, I'm gonna cut those cacos. Raspalo hasta el hueso!

Cesar Vialpando: Hey, carnales, what's cracking, holmes?

Gal: Cesar! And you must be CJ. Cesar says you cool, so we cool, holmes.

(Approaching Vagos territory)

Cesar Vialpando: OK. Check it out. We will have to work our way through this neighborhood to get to my house. If we stick together those Vagos pendejos won't stand a chance! Watch each others' backs, amigos. Hasta la muerte!

Everyone else: HASTA LA MUERTE!

(While attacking the first set)

Cesar Vialpando: Quickly, go! GO!

(Once done)

Cesar Vialpando: That's the last of them, let's move out!

(Arrives at alleyway)

Cesar Vialpando: That was the easy bit, eh. Now we go into the viper's nest. This is were it gets tough. Luckily we have a little surprise up our sleeves, eh, Sunny!

Carl Johnson: That's a rocket launcher man! We'll bring the National Guard down on us!

Cesar Vialpando: Look around you, CJ, the whole city is a war zone! C'mon, I want to take my house back!

(While shooting at Vagos gang members)

Sunny: Hazer!

Cesar Vialpando: Shit, Hazer...

Sunny: He is pretty bad, Cesar...

Cesar Vialpando: Heads up! More Vagos! They're coming over the walls!

(Vagos surround them)

Sunny: More Vagos behind us!

(Approaching the last wave of Vagos)

Cesar Vialpando: Let's fucking finish this!

Carl Johnson: I'm with you man, let's take these punks.

Vagos gangster: Vagos rule this varrio now - Aztecas are no more! Burn them!

(After finishing off all the Vagos gangsters)

Carl Johnson: Alright, that's the last of 'em.

Cesar Vialpando: How is Hazer?

Sunny: We need to get him to a hospital!

Carl Johnson: Hey, I'll take him.

Cesar Vialpando: CJ, you have done more than enough, holmes. You should get back to the Grove.

Carl Johnson: Alright ese, I'll see you after all this is settled down.

Cesar Vialpando: Thank you, CJ and good luck, my friend.


The reward for completing this mission is an increase in respect and the final storyline mission End of the Line is unlocked, however it isn't playable until 35% of territories (i.e. around 20) have been taken over by Grove Street Families.


  • This mission can be bypassed if you already have captured enough gang territory after Riot. Sweet will call once, informing CJ to take over more, then if the player already has done so, he will call again, saying he's found Big Smoke. The marker at Sweet's house will then lead to End of the Line, skipping this mission. To avoid this if you already have enough, only answer Sweet's first phone call, ignoring the second until you play the mission.
  • Curiously, while this mission states that it is the Vagos who have taken over the Aztecas' turf, before the mission, the gang war radar has it as the Ballas instead.
