Get to the roof

Once you find the keycard, head over to the elevator to ride it up part of the way to the roof. You will get stopped and need to access the keypad to use the second elevator. After accessing the keypad, you will end up on the roof where the deal is going down.

Take out Mason Duggan & get the case

Mason will be on the roof after you get through the onslaught of bodyguards that he has. He will try escaping in a helicopter. Damage it during takeoff so that he has to make an emergency landing later on. You can easily give chase to his helicopter by jumping off the roof and parachuting down.

Steal a car and chase down Mason’s helicopter. When he lands, finish him off and steal the case. It will be lying on the ground wherever you kill him. Once you have the case, you will need to bring it to the drop-off that appears on your map. When you drop off the briefcase, the mission will be complete.
