  • 1,200 XP
  • City Sounds Suit
  • 10 Hero Tokens
  • 200 Tech Parts


Having picked up the phone belonging to one of the museum's burglars in Bebop, it's time for Miles to confront the mastermind behind the robbery. Swing over to the objective marker in northwest Harlem to begin, entering from the roof. It turns out Darren is the one behind this, so beat up all the bad guys he's met up with. You'll have a quick chance to talk to him before another wave of goons comes pouring out of the theatre, giving Darren the chance to escape.

Chase after his car, and take out the first driver when prompted. You can then go after Darren in the front car. Once you've caught up, Darren will be arrested and Miles will get to explore the now-restored museum. Approach Rio at the stand by taking a look through the exhibit. You'll complete the Mission and the Cultural Museum storyline in the cutscene.
