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.
