Massacre in PanamaEdit
After being told about a bag of money hidden in a yacht located in Panama, the AUP pirates attack the ship and killing most of its passengers. Max Payne, a survivor of the attack, wakes up in his room to find the AUP attacking and finishing off remaining passengers.
Payne fights his way and kills many of AUP pirates, until he gets off the boat, and seeks help from his partner, Raul Passos. The two return to the ship where they finish off the remaining AUP pirates, only to find the corpses of the passengers. The AUP pirates do not find the money bags, as Marcelo Branco escaped with it.
Two months later, the AUP continued their violent and terror acts, increasing canal hijacking in Panama, despite the government attempts to stop the group.
- The AUP resembles Colombian Far-Right paramilitary group AUC.
