The quest requires you to retrieve a valuable piece of cargo  a secure case for documents — and bring it back to Skier. Once you do this, you will be rewarded with cash, XP, and weapons.

How to Complete The Extortionist Quest

Find the Dead Body

The documents case has been given to a messenger, who is now, unsurprisingly, dead. So you need to find his body first by following these steps:

  1. Use the bridge to get to the eastern side of the Customs map
  2. Turn south, towards the RUAF Roadblock
  3. Locate the messenger’s body north of the roadblock

The location of the RUAF Roadblock is indicated by the red marker on the map. The messenger’s body is indicated by the blue marker.

Once you find the body, you need to search it for a key. Take the key and follow the next step.

Retrieve the Valuable Cargo

The secure case is hidden inside the messenger’s cabin, which is indicated by the green marker on the map.

Use the key to unlock the cabin and retrieve the case for documents. Bring the case back to Skier.

As a reward for completing The Extortionist quest, you will be given the following:

  • 3,200 XP
  • Skier Rep +0.08
  • 500 Dollars
  • Vepr AKM carbine
  • 3x Izhmash AK magazine
