    1. Another bug- says ‘search’ in the garage right above the crates but there isn’t anything to search. If you keep shooting price till it says ‘friendly fire will not be tolerated’ it then will bring you back to you’re last check point after clearing the buildings, the prompt will then appear

      1. Thanks for the tip!
