In the aftermath of the reveal that Oracle's hideout was located in Ulaanbaatar, Connor and the player set off to the city to find and arrest Oracle once and for all. While driving through the landscape to the city, Connor spotted something suspicious in a nearby encampment and decided to investigate it. Soon, the pair found the body of Mongol tribe chief Yargai with an arrow in his heart. With the help of Penelope, Nia confirmed Yargai was shot with a crossbow. The pair first questioned Yargai's second-in-command Tseren, the victim's wife Jaliqai and medical intern Diana Larsdottir before Takagi told the pair that she'd hacked into a government satellite and found an abandoned building near the city, believing it to be Oracle's hideout.

The pair quickly headed to Oracle's hideout where they were able to suspect investor Tadashi Miyako and secretary Vladimir Rusanov, as well as finding the murder weapon. Imran then told the team that he was out on a yak ride when he saw a campfire in the encampment get out of control. The team raced to the camp and helped contain the fire, discovering more of the suspect's motivations. Finally, Tseren was revealed as the killer.

Tseren tried to deny the accusations before cracking under pressure, saying Yargai had to die to save the tribe. Tseren recounted how the tribe were migrating across the country when they came across a dangerous mountain trail. Tseren begged Yargai to not bring the tribe over the trail as it was too risky but Yargai arrogantly refused and did it anyway. Tseren then snapped and confessed that many of the tribesman died along the trail and that it was all Yargai's fault. Tseren described how he knew he had to do something but had no means to do it, until he was gifted the crossbow by a Russian man. He then proceeded to shoot Yargai through the heart. In his trial, he was sentenced to 15 years in prison for the murder. When Judge Emerson asked Tseren who supplied the crossbow, he confessed the truth, saying it was Vladimir Rusanov. With the truth behind the murder revealed, the player raced to catch Vladimir and send him to court.

The player and Connor raced to Mount Khan where Vladimir was last spotted and searched the area. Eventually, the pair found his wallet containing a rusted safe key. Remembering that Oracle's hideout contained a locked safe, they headed back there and unlocked the safe. There, they found a burner phone which they sent to Takagi for analysis. Takagi confirmed that the phone contained details of the counterfeiting scheme, revealing Vladimir as one half of Oracle. She also informed them that Vladimir had booked a boat out of the country, prompting them to head to the docks to confront him. When confronted about being Oracle, Vladimir laughed and insisted that he wasn't Oracle. Vladimir continued on, saying that Oracle was a single person and that he was just her loyal acolyte, doing what she told him to do. He recounted how Oracle manipulated Tseren into killing Yargai as Yargai had discovered her identity, instructing him to gift Tseren the crossbow to use. The pair quickly arrested him and placed him in a holding cell where Anya requested to know what had happened. Upon hearing the news, Anya broke down and requested some time alone.

Meanwhile, Riya and the player helped Jaliqai in her attempts to get a job in the city so she could leave her tribal life behind. Once they had finished helping her, she thanked the pair before leaving. Finally, the team prepared for Vladimir's trial. As they entered the courtroom, they discovered that Judge Whitney Emerson was missing. Before they could search for her, however, a panicked Logan raced into the courtroom, insisting that Whitney had just been found dead.
