Get Gold in GTA 5 Grass Roots Mission: The Pickup

In this video, we will guide you on how to get gold in the popular open-world action game Grand Theft Auto 5. The mission we focus on is the Grass Roots mission: The Pickup. This is part of our series on getting gold in every mission in the game.

As you progress through Grand Theft Auto 5, you’ll realize how massive the game is, especially with the constant updates from Rockstar for GTA Online. With no shortage of new content and interesting things to do, we bring you a walkthrough of one of the missions that can be quite challenging to get gold on.

The Pickup Location

To accomplish this mission, you must avoid detection and deliver the truck within two minutes and 45 seconds. You can find the truck near the lumber yard, and once you’re set, you can start the mission.

Stay Stealthy to Get Gold

The cops in this mission can be a bit challenging to avoid if you’re not sure where to go, but we’ve got you covered. You must completely avoid detection to get gold, so rather than following the yellow line, we’ll sneak down to the right of the pickup location.

If you exit through any of the main entrances, you’ll get caught by the cops. Instead, sneak out the back of the location and head straight off the edge. It may not look graceful, but it works. Once you make it out, the cops will be avoided, and it’s a matter of following the GPS back to Barry’s place without slowing down too much.

Avoid Hitting Anything

When driving the truck, don’t worry too much about its condition. However, do your best to keep the pace up and avoid hitting anything as it will slow you down and risk a timed gold medal. Use Franklin’s ability where possible to pick up the pace and help round corners.

Get to the Finish Line ASAP

Once you’ve arrived at Barry’s apartment, remember to slow down to wipe off some speed and park the truck. Make sure to avoid hitting anything else and plant your foot near the finish line. If you manage to do this quickly, you should finish the mission with ease and potentially get a gold medal.

The Smoking Unwanted Outcome

If you’re curious about the outcome of the smoking mentioned towards the end of the video, be sure to watch it till the end. You’ll have some fun watching how the situation plays out.

so consider subscribing and ringing the bell stay up to date getting gold in this mission can be a
bit trying as the cops are a bit challenging to avoid if you don’t know precisely where to go
to get gold in this one we’ll need to completely avoid detection and deliver the truck in two
minutes and 45 seconds so you can find the truck here it’s near the lumber yard
okay so let’s pick up after we’ve gotten organized
so once we’re off the phone with barry we can see the lift truck on the left hand side there
the little grey job it’s not even great nick but it does look pretty cool i’m sure if we
were to borrow one of these it would uh do our polish up quite nicely all right now we do not
want to follow the yellow line on this one we want to instead sneak down to the right
now this is a bit awkward but if you go out any of the main entrances
you’ll get busted by the cops so we’re just going to sneak out the back here and it’s not going to
be graceful but it will work all right so straight off the edge here just plant it
there we go all right i don’t think we’ve got much of a choice we’re going to have to go down the
drain and we’ll just try and find somewhere to sneak up there we go that’s convenient
right cops avoided brilliant now it’s just a case of following the gps back to barry’s place and we
don’t need to worry too much about the condition of the truck we just need to make sure that we
keep the pace up as much as possible so try and avoid hitting anything
use franklin’s ability where you can to pick up the pace
because anything you clobber will slow us down and risk that timed gold medal
so you can see that coming through the corners if you use franklin’s ability
really helps pick up the pace on the
straight
and we should rock it out of this corner once we’re through
there we go yeah that could have ended poorly this thing really gets a move when it wants
to get going okay so we’ll slow it down here wipe off some speed using franklin’s ability
and then pull in to barry’s apartments there we go round to the left afterwards and plant the
foot there we go right so that should be gold we’ll just head away and give barry a quick bell
you just won’t get off the phone there we go right and that should be mission complete just wait
for that to register and gold there we are so we managed to absolutely rock it back with about 40
seconds to spare so you can see if you collected anything or got caught in traffic it would end
poorly right so thanks for watching to the end as promised here’s how the smoking ended up going
where you at mr revolutionary the smoking i’m at city hall i’m the only fool here
uh uh all right yeah oh [ __ ] uh yeah yeah i’ll be right there
