1. Just Cause 2 Walkthrough OverviewUpdate notes

Welcome to the walkthrough for Just Cause 2. This is going to be a long ride, but the gameplay should keep you entertained as you progress through the game and its achievements.

The story takes place after the events of Just Cause, where Rico Rodriguez is sent to Panau to take down the dictator Pandak Panay, as well as find out what happened to the agent-gone-rogue that he worked with in San Esperito, Tom Sheldon. The gameplay is much different than that of its prequel, and movement has been vastly improved with the addition of a much more functioning grappling hook. Parachute movement has also been improved upon, as well as countless other aspects of the game, which would only be improved further in Just Cause 3.

The recommended way to play through this game is to do it twice; the first time will be a run on the hardest difficulty, Hardcore, so you can get the difficulty-specific achievements out of the way and get familiar with the game. After going through Hardcore as fast as you can, you'll be free to set a new save up on the easiest difficulty and reach a minimum of 75% completion as you complete all available faction missions, do 50 challenges, etc., as well as sweep up any miscellaneous achievements that you didn't get on the Hardcore run. However, if you wanted to save the Hardcore story speedrun for last, feel free to do so; the game shouldn't be impossible to run through on Hardcore your first time through, though.

Complementary videos are provided through playlist links and on the Misc Achievements page to aid in finishing the game, should you want to watch how to do something before running into it or how to pass through something you're stuck on.
