    Whenever I reach the pass for the ambush and stop the ambush, the convoy truck exploded (guess that is intended) and then when everything is killed, the mission doesn't progress, I am just sitting stuck here bec I can even abandon the mission and take it from another angle bec everytime I abandon, it places me the pass again and same thing happens.
    Have tried this now like 5 times and same result.. the missions doesn't progress. Please help, cant move forward with other mission bec of this.

    @alpha-instinct I’m having the exact same problem. I attempted to withdraw from the operation, but then the convoy stopped moving on the next playthrough. So I went to see why and the whole convoy was invisible. I machete killed an invisible soldado and then had the same problem of waiting around and the mission not progressing. This is an actual problem because now I can’t progress the story any further

    edit: I’m playing on Xbox One

    RECENT EDIT: I finally got it to work properly. After quitting and restarting the mission a few times I tried talking to the farmers in a different order and it worked! Maybe it has something to do with the order of talking to them. I was originally doing Borrero, Carbonell, then Vélez; but once I changed it to Carbonell, Vélez, and Borrero last it seemed to work. I don’t know if it’s luck of the draw or if there’s something to the order.

    I am having a different issue. I gathered the farmers, went to the pass, and we killed all of the enemies. There are no more enemies from which to "Defend the Cargo", yet the battle music continues and the mission won't resolve/end!! I have looked all over the region of the mission, high and low, and there is no one else to kill, but the mission won't end. I tried killing myself and doing the mission over, but the same issue happens every time. I've tried 3 times now. Please fix this, Ubisoft!

    Ok, after shutting down the game and my PC for the day, I tried the following day, and this time it just worked. So, it may have just needed a reboot of the game and/or Ubisoft launcher. One other possibility, is that I noticed this time the damaged truck with the special cargo got stopped to the right of the overpass (the rocks to the right of the overpass fell in front of the convoy), whereas during the times the mission was failing to complete, the convoy was stopped by the rocks falling at the left of the overpass, which left the damaged truck with the cargo was stopped under the overpass.
    Either way, I hope Ubisoft will fix this so future players won't have to mess with it.
    Thanks!

    I'm stuck on this mission as well. I destroy the convoy and just sit there waiting for the opportunity to defend it. Have had the same issue three times on different days and after restarts on XBox 1. I think it is just a lottery and you have to keep playing the mission until it works. It is a real bummer to have an unbeatable mission glitch in a modern game. I guess I'll try a few more times and then stop playing this game.

    Hey @kylerkevinriley

    I'm sorry to hear that. I wonder if it was caused by destroying the convoy too early / quickly? Would you be able to try waiting a little longer to do so and see if this helps?

    I was having this problem too.

    The way I got it to finally work was by downing jonron with the machete and then reviving her. She then walked up to the cargo and the mission ended.
    Hope this helps

    After I gathered the farmers the mission marker disappeared. So I found schuabs pass on the map and when I got there I didn’t see any convoy or soldados. It says “defend the special cargo, jonron should be on her way”. The guerillas are in place and nothing is happening. I’ve been waiting a while and I don’t think jonron is coming.

    I fast traveled away and it reset to saying “ambush the special convoy”. It was still a little glitchy but I was able to finish it.

    Yeah this mission is extremely bugged, the main point being that the game isn't able to recognize when the convoy has been actually taken care of. What I did for the third try was just go straight for the convoy alone without recruiting anyone and then destroy it. Then Jonron came and it took her a while to recognize I had killed everyone, she even said "take care of tank!" or something like that but I had already destroyed it... it shouldn't be a hard fix, just fix jonron AI in this mission no?

    Hiya @xDavide9

    Thanks for taking the time to explain how you managed to finish the mission and for sharing your feedback with us.
    Our teams do their best to fix the issues that the players share with us.
    In this case, it seems that in the end, the mission can be finished with workarounds, and no videos that could be forwarded to our teams have been shared yet.

    Rest assured that once all the information needed are provided, we forward them to our dedicated teams.

    Let us know if you have any other question.

    I had the same issue and surprisingly what fixed it for me was not killing the enemies too early. especially the tank.

    That's what I speculated earlier in the thread may be the cause. Thanks for letting us know that worked for you @ADMNtek 🙂

    @Ubi-Froggard this mission was a flop. I am on my first far cry 6 playthrough and it's being ruined by this broken quest which is what brought me here.

    I'm surprised to see so many others have had the same issue, why did ubisoft never deal with this? What can i do to get this fixed?
