Abang Long Fadil 2 continues the journey of Fadil, who falls into the mafia world mastered by Taji Samprit and his son Wak Doyok. A particular incident causes Fadil to be mistaken by Inspector Wahab and Inspector Shuib as a notorious mercenary named Tiger.
At the same time, Yana, a TVKL reporter who often covered Tiger's murder cases, is also trapped in a fugitive problem faced by Fadil. Fadil is forced to live as a murderer despite his innocence. His first target is Kingkong, a crazy mafia and an enemy to Taji Samprit.
Various acts and situations took place in Fadil's life as a mercenary. The only one way to clear his name is to look for Tiger's true identity to correct the situation and to prove his innocence.
Later that evening, Fadil went to King Kong's club with disguise as the bombay. Before Fadil could kill him, King Kong's already dead. The police arrived at the night club where Tiger (Fadil) allegedly have killed King Kong. Inspector Wahab and his partner pursued Tiger (Fadil) until they met an accident where Inspector Wahab and his colleagues were injured while pursuing Tiger (Fadil).
Wak Doyok paid RM 10 million and hired Fadil to kill Taji Samprit because he had hired him to kill his own mother. He wanted him to kill Taji Samprit and confiscate a lock on which the key was kept by his own father. Inspector Wahab and Inspector Shuib visited Yana's house and questioned the murder of Datin Mona who killed Tiger. Inspector Wahab advised Yana that the suspect was dangerous.
All three have been attacked by Cobra, brother of King Kong. After the car crash, Fadil ordered Ali and Yana to leave and let Fadil stay to fight with Cobra. After Cobra severely attacks Fadil and avenge his brother's death, he forgives Cobra and invites him to his house where RM 500,000 is stashed.
At the same time, Wak Doyok was shocked when his father was still alive and that he has ordered his gangs to attack his own son. He almost defeated Taji Samprit's gangs, including Rudy. He fights with his father but was defeated. Taji Samprit tries to kill Wak Doyok, but is killed by Tiger. He explained to Wak Doyok that Fadil was a subordinate gangster. Wak Doyok got angry and orders him to kill Fadil.
In the warehouse area, Fadil throws the locket to Wak Doyok and Wak Doyok unties Yana, but Tiger and Wak Doyok teamed up together to kill Fadil. Starting in the final showdown, Fadil and Yana escaped from Wak Doyok but to no avail. While Cobra fights with Tiger to avenge his brother's death. Fadil wants to kill Wak Doyok, until Inspector Wahab and Inspector Shuib surround all the warehouse areas. Inspector Shuib aims Inspector Wahab because Shuib knows he is the Taji's right-hand man. But Inspector Wahab explained that Fadil was innocent. However, Inspector Wahab hired Rudy to work as a police officer. Wahab's inspector reminded that the camouflage of Tiger, Ali.
Continued in the final showdown, Cobra was killed by Ali. Inspector Wahab and Inspector Shuib chased Ali up to Inspector Wahab and Inspector Shuib shoot Ali with some explosives. Ali resurrected, but Inspector Wahab shoots Ali to death. Wak Doyok fights with Fadil again, until Wak Doyok defeats Fadil.
