Was like wtf?!?! Definitely not based on performance.
Anyway, now that I recruited you to investigate we shall find out soon!
If it was the first time they did the mission, they will get a much higher payout. Every time after they will get the same amount you do. I'm sure you're aware of that though, so maybe it's something else. Sure it will come out over the next few days..
