No need for Faction coordinates for this one in our opinion. The Criminal Leader can be found in the starting town's Marketplace. Its the main building in the centre of each starting town.

It is the heaviest defended area of the town with plenty of enemy AI to fight your way through. The Leader's spawn is a bit random but he will usually spawn inside the building either on the ground or first floor.

The Criminal Leader is found inside the building above. Clear out all the enemy AI and sooner or later you will come across him. He can be distinguished by his Red beret. Once you have taken him down, the Task Complete notification will instantly pop off.

This is one of the tougher missions that the player has likely faced up until this point. The area is swarming with enemy AI and the Criminal Leader is a bit more alert compared to standard bots.

Once you have killed the Criminal Leader, head back to Base Camp and turn it in to Handshake to collect your rewards.
