El Pozolero, The Stewmaker

10/03/2016 09:00 AM

The walkthrough shown during E3 2016 took place in San Mateo, one of the many provinces of the game.

The Ghosts were sent to investigate the disturbing disappearance of bodies in this area. After the interrogation of a member of the cartel and the extraction of data from a highly guarded camp, players discovered the name of the man who disposed of the bodies for the cartel: El Pozolero.

El Pozolero (“The Stewmaker”) is one piece of the complex organization that is the Santa Blanca Cartel. He operates under the security branch, the military wing of the cartel. His job is to ensure that no evidence is left behind – particularly the corpses of people standing in the way of the cartel.

In case you missed it, don’t forget to watch our dedicated E3 Special Operations stream to learn more about the different units! Replay available here.

 
03.10_Pozolero_Bio

 

Raul Murillo, also known as El Pozolero, has always had difficulty understanding the difference between right and wrong. Socially awkward and living as a hermit, he has the mind of a child.

He used to work in construction before he lost his job and was recruited by the cartel. He was taught how to dissolve bodies and discovered that he had a strong constitution for it.

Due to the activities of the Santa Blanca Cartel, there are always bodies that need to disappear. Wearing latex gloves and a gas mask, El Pozolero places the bodies in oil drums with caustic soda (sodium hydroxide) then stirs them until they turn to liquid. Then, he dumps the “stew” and crushes up the remaining evidence: the bones and teeth.

In game, El Pozolero is quite a nervous character. If he sees a Ghost coming at him, he will certainly try to run to save his life rather than directly assaulting the player, hence the interest in capturing him undetected.

According to our Narrative Director Sam Strachman, “What’s crazy about El Pozolero is that you have this guy who dissolves dead bodies for a living…yet he truly doesn’t believe he’s doing anything bad. He would never, ever hurt or kill anyone. He just melts them after they’re dead.”

Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands will be available March 7, 2017, on PlayStation®4 system, Xbox One, and PC.

Walking through the lion’s den: El Pozolero mission – stealth approach

In the E3 2016 walkthrough demo, the Ghosts had to capture and extract El Pozolero – the Stewmaker – one of the main villains of the cartel. The mission took place in the light of the day, and the camp was heavily guarded. Now let’s see what could have happened in other circumstances, if for instance the Ghosts had chosen to wait for the night to capture him.
