About Grand Theft Auto

GTA 5 Mission: Drop Zone

The Drop Zone mission in GTA 5 involves jumping out of a plane and landing on a moving truck. The key to achieving gold is landing dead-center on the trailer. This may take a few attempts, but with our guide, you can get it right.

Walkthrough for GTA 5 Gold

To start the mission, players need to board the chopper and head towards the moving truck. It’s recommended to go out to the right and take a dive to put some distance between you and the airport. This will give you a better runway to hit the truck on.

As the truck comes into view, pull your parachute early to give yourself more time to track the target and try to match it. Slow down and line yourself up with the target. You can use the controls on the top left to slow down and get close to the trailer. Once you are aligned with the target, slow down and drop onto the trailer.

Practice is the key to success in this mission, and it may take a few attempts to get everything just right. If you overshoot the target, you can drop straight down and ditch the parachute as long as you’re not too high in the air.

game between gta 5 and the constant updates from rockstar for gta online there’s no shortage of
new content and interesting things to do join me then in our continuing series getting gold
in every damn mission in gta 5 as we look at the grand theft auto mission drop zone
before we dive in if you’re new to the channel we do how-to guides news and giveaways so consider
subscribing and ringing the bell to stay up to date getting gold in this mission is not
as straightforward as it looks it took me a few goes to get this right to get gold will need to
land dead center of the trailer so let’s start with the briefing the drop zone is on the back
of a moving truck so take your time maneuvering with your parachute it’s better to pull your shoe
early than late it will give you more time to track the target and try to match it to me
right so we’ll start on the plane uh sorry the chopper again and off we go
i tend to go out to the right here and then take a bit of a dive to put some distance between us
and the airport and that way it gives you a more of a runway to hit the truck on
so swing back around and it’s hard to see the truck there but it is coming up on the end of
the runway so we can take a bit of a dive now as the truck comes into view and then pull the shoe
so now this bit really just comes down to a bit of practice so you can see we’re lined up behind
the runway we’re going relatively straight in comparison to the truck and you can see the target
is coming into view there whether it’s not helping if i’m honest all right so now just using the
controls up top left there too slow down and line myself up get close slow right down and then drop
now there’s a quick tip here as well if you do get above the target but start overshooting you can
just drop straight down and dump the chute as long as you’re not too far in the air then michael will
live to tell the tale so what are your thoughts do you have any tips for other viewers or could
