Turns out, the Rook Islands are at civil war between the natives and the slaving pirates who have made the island a complete madhouse. Jason and his friends are abducted and the leader of the pirates Vaas (see cover) decides to hold them ransom due to Jason's wealthy parents. He is also a complete sociopath who does a alot of drugs and likes repeating the definition of insanity over and over again while he does things similar to the cover of the game. Jason and his older brother Grant are held prisoner by Vaas while he taunts them with the occasional death threat added in. After Vass leaves, Grant uses his former military training to escape with Jason. They managed to make it out of the camp to look at a map and get their bearings when Grant is shot in the neck and dies in Jason's arms. Vaas wishes to make sport out of Jason and gives him a head start into the jungle before sending the hounds in after him. Jason falls into a river, losing Vaas's men and almost his life. He is revived by Dennis Rogers, this very likable guy who tattooed a tribal symbol Jason's arm.

Guns can also be given a unique color pattern, making each weapon unique to the next. Radio towers as mentioned earlier play a large role in exploration, allowing a little more of the map to become visible, in the portion of the map unlocked there will likely be an enemy outpost. These outposts can be captured to liberate that certain zone which turns the outpost into a safehouse which can be used as a fast travel station and place to buy weapons. This also will also cause Rakyat warriors to patrol the zone that has been liberated, Jason can stop the car they are in and drive his fellow liberators around to help him.
