Grand Theft Auto 5: The Big Score
In this video, we will guide you through the “Obvious Approach” to the Grand Theft Auto heist, The Big Score, in order to achieve gold. Grand Theft Auto 5 is a massive game, with continuous updates from Rockstar for GTA Online, providing a never-ending source of new content and activities to explore. Join us as we provide guides and walkthroughs to help you achieve gold in everyday missions.
To start, it is recommended that all three protagonists have full health and armor, as well as ample ammunition for grenades, RPGs, and heavy machine guns. Additionally, it is suggested to increase your shooting ability by spending some time practicing at the range before beginning the mission.
To achieve gold in this mission, you must kill 20 enemies with headshots, maintain an accuracy of 60% or higher, drop the gold onto the train within 30 seconds, and complete the entire mission in less than 16 minutes.
The Obvious Approach
Starting at the Vanilla Unicorn, we jump straight into the car and follow the GPS marker to the bank. After arriving at the bank, we switch to Franklin with the driller and use the spool up cutter to breach the wall. Once inside, we use sticky bombs or grenades to clear a path through to the gold, kill the enemies using shotguns, and monitor the mini-map for any additional reinforcements.
Next, we switch to Michael and utilize a sniper rifle or other long-range weapon to take out the enemies on the surrounding rooftops. We then return to Franklin and steal a car to drive to the train tracks.
Once we arrive, we must work quickly to load the gold onto the train within 30 seconds. We then ascend in a helicopter with Trevor and shoot down any pursuing helicopters on the way back to the train.
After landing, we drive to Trevor’s airport and complete the mission with gold status.
The Subtle Approach
While the Obvious Approach is the one we recommend for achieving gold, some players prefer the Subtle Approach. This involves using gas to knock out the guards, drilling silently into the vault, and quietly getting away with the gold. While this approach might be more realistic, it is also more difficult to achieve gold status and is not recommended for this particular mission.
With the Obvious Approach, we were able to achieve gold status with 59 seconds to spare and an accuracy rate of 97%. While the Subtle Approach might be more appealing for its realism, it is not the most efficient method for achieving gold in this particular mission.
