Grand Theft Auto V: How to Complete “Welcome to the Troop” Mission in Los Santos Drug Wars
The Freight Shop has landed in Los Santos, and players are about to enter the dynamic, acid-laced world of Dax. In the first Soiree into the world of LS Drug Wars, players must complete their mission solo with nothing but low-rank weapons and transport. In this tutorial, old grumpy gamer Dan provides a step-by-step walkthrough to complete the “Welcome to the Troop” mission, highlighting the tools and techniques necessary to succeed.
Tools of the Trade: What You’ll Need to Succeed
Before taking on the mission, players need to ensure they have all essential tools to stay protected and motivated throughout the gameplay. This includes:
- Full Snacks
- Full Armor
- Heavy Automatic
- Grenade Launcher
- Hand Grenades
- Fast Off-Roader or Armored Vehicle
Players will need to stay covered as much as possible since they will be engaging with several bikers and gang members. The heavy arsenal will help players conserve their armor and health, while the fast vehicles will give you an edge in avoiding combat while driving.
The First Mission: Welcome to the Troop
The first mission in LS Drug Wars requires the player to head to the marker in Sandy Shores, where they will meet Dax Luchadora and Lab Rat. After the cutscene, the player is dropped onto the balcony roof of the shop, surrounded by The Lost bikers swarming the area.
The first wave requires players to fire off a few grenades to take care of the overarching groups, and then pick up the rifle and start shooting. Once your bikers are cleared from the starting position, head back through the building and over to the Western Wall, where players should grab some cover off to the left and take out any remaining bikers.
The best position to complete the Western Wall task is at the left-hand window. Use the launcher to lob a few grenades and pick off anyone who breaks cover. Remember that gas cans are your friend! Pick off any stragglers, then head back out to the balcony and off to the right to take care of the final wave.
Some gang members might be hidden off to the right, so the player may need to jump the railing. Once everyone else is done, head back out to the building and call in your personal vehicle through the interaction menu. Then head off to the Boatyard, where you will sneak up until you get a line of sight and take out anything you can.
The next move is to drive down the track and start shooting any remaining bikers to clear the path to the RV. Make sure you have enough Snacks and armor to prepare for a bit of resistance here. Start with the roadblock and just drive around it. Avoid any combat while attempting to drive since the machine is slow and handles like a pig. Keep driving until you get back to the shop and collect Dax. Then drive around and avoid any combat unless a lost van gets in front of you.
Final Steps: Wrap-up and Thoughts
At the end of the mission, players will receive fifty thousand dollars, in addition to the regular mission pay.
