View Full Version : Save my buddies or save the church?

So I'm at 31% in the story, just assassinated the UFLL leader and am now being forced to decide between saving my buddies (red objective) or saving the church in pala (underground objective). What I'm wondering is if one or the other will prohibit me from earning the quest achievements associated with it.

In other words, will saving my buddies prohibit me from doing all the underground missions? Will saving the church make me lose all my buddies and thus the buddy side missions achievement? Or will either have no affect whatsoever on my ability to earn achievements due to the story making up for whichever loss I sustain?

Anyone past this point yet know what the wiser decision is?

Rescue all the Buddies from their respective predicaments.

I tried to save them and they died within a few seconds of hiding inside Mike's. I assumed it was inevitable so that kind of irritates me to find out I missed out an the achievement.

is it even possible to fend off that attack? your buddies drop like flies.. maybe its because im missing a buddy. think ill just go with the church and leave saving the buddies to the next time through

edit: the church has the same outcome, unwinnable gunfight. i think its an unavoidable part of the stpry, as you dont die completely and the game carries on with you being taken somewhere.

this leads me to believe that the third faction is just for completing all the buddy sidequests, as in every single one none of them can die, before the southern territory bit happens

Hmmmm, well, no one's unlocked it yet so I guess we'll have to wait to find out for sure. I just started single player. My plan is to (since I have the strategy guide) get all the diamonds and safe houses in the North first. Then all convoys, then all cell towers, then all underground missions, then all buddy missions, then finally the main missions.
Repeat for South.

EDIT: Another reason people may not be getting this is, there's a plane wreck in North LS where you have to go to find a buddy.
