How to Get Gold in the Subtle Approach to the GTA 5 Heist: The Big Score

Grand Theft Auto (GTA) is a massive game, and between GTA 5 and constant updates from Rockstar for GTA Online, there is no shortage of new content and interesting things to do. In this video, we will be discussing how to get gold in the subtle approach to the Grand Theft Auto heist, the big score.

GTA Big Score: Subtle Approach

Getting gold in the subtle approach to the big score can be fairly challenging, especially considering the number of moving parts. Before starting, it is recommended that each of our protagonists has all health and armor, grenades, RPG ammunition, and heavy machine gun ammunition. If the shooting isn’t at full capacity, spending some time at the range wouldn’t hurt either. To achieve gold, we’ll need to kill 20 enemies with headshots, complete the hacking mini-game within 10 changes, and maintain an accuracy of 60.

The Van Snapshot

Start outside the Vanilla Unicorn and jump in the four-wheel drive. That car is based on the real-life Mercedes G-Wagon. Then head straight to the marker, following the GPS on the left. We will be prompted in the top left to deploy the stingers in a few moments, after which we will pile out of the truck. Control the crowd by simply pointing the gun at their heads.

Union Depository Underground Car Park

After getting the tires changed, we need to hang tight while we restrain a couple more guys. Select one to help us out, then we will pile into the van and head towards the Union Depository underground car park. Following the GPS again, we will arrive at the destination. The great thing about this particular approach is that there’s no time limit, so we can properly enjoy the cutscenes and the exposition that comes along with it.

Fighting Off the Cops

Controlling Michael again, we need to follow the blue marker; which is Trevor, the manager. We will then wait for the boys to push the carts out, then follow them back to the elevator. After heading back up with the gold, we’ll be controlling Trevor again, and then we’ll swap to Franklin for the hacking mini-game.

The Big Score Heist

The hacking game requires changing the lights to allow Michael and co through, but keep Merryweather away from them. The pattern is unlikely to make it easy for us, so we need to ensure that Merryweather guys stay away. After a dialogue exchange, Merryweather is on their way, and now the fun begins.

We’re automatically dropped into Trevor, and we need to make sure that we use his ability as much as we can. It is quite a satisfying little pop when we successfully hit the enemies. Keep an eye on the minimap to identify where the enemies are, and use the reticle to figure out whether we can shoot them or not. Switch between characters depending on the scenario and use the best tactics and weapons for the given situation.

The Getaway Car

After taking out all the enemies, we are then in Franklin’s car, and we need to drive away while keeping away from the cops. The police aren’t happy with us, and the gauntlets we’re driving are a little harder to control than other vehicles. It is important to use Franklin’s special ability when stuck, and instead of driving fast, it is better to go slower around the corners. After driving through building sites and tunnels, we will arrive safely close to Michael’s place with the gold.

Celebrating the Score

After completing this core mission, there is no time limit and Michael, Lester, and Trevor all get together to celebrate their score. In the end, it is a very productive day for them, and they have had some fun, too.

The Golden Achievement

We finished the mission with a 20 out of 20 headshot score, signal man got 7, and we did it with ten signals, high accuracy, and a good amount of money. Gold is the greatest achievement in these missions, and this video tells you how to do it.

Hi in this video we’re going through how to get
gold in the subtle approach to the gta 5 heist the big score
hi and welcome back my name is Dan and i’m an old grumpy gamer grand theft auto is a truly massive
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 subtle approach to the grand theft auto heist the
big score 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 staff today getting gold in this one is fairly
challenging especially considering how many moving parts we have in play before you start
i highly recommend that each of our protagonists have all health and armor grenades rpg ammunition
and heavy machine gun ammunition and if your shooting isn’t it full spending some time at
the range won’t hurt either to get gold in this one we’ll need to kill 20 enemies with headshots
complete the hacking mini game within 10 changes and maintain an accuracy of 60
so let’s pick it up from outside the vanilla unicorn so we’ll jump in the four-wheel drive
i think that’s based on the real-life mercedes g wagon if i don’t if i recall correctly
and the marker will pop up there so just head straight to the marker
following the gps on the left there
all right there’s the marker we’ll just pull up
and we need to hang tight while we wait for the trucks
there we are all right so we’ll be prompted top left to deploy
the stingers in a few moments there we go so when you’re ready just click those out
or hang tight for another few seconds we’ll just move away actually a little bit
there we go sting is deployed this thing is done i should say pile out of the truck
there we go and it’s just now a case of controlling the crowd by
simply pointing your gun at their heads
here we go tyres getting changed so we just need to hold tight while we
restrain a couple more of these guys we pick one to help us out
excellent so we’ll pile in now and off we go okay this is again just a case of
following the gps all the way around to the union depository underground car park
there’s the marker in we go now the great thing about this particular approach is that there’s no
time limit so we can properly enjoy the cutscenes and the exposition that comes along with it
uh we take control of michael again head forward and follow the blue marker which
is i think uh trevor that’s the manager it’s all good there’s also a little bit of a subtle
exchange here between michael and trevor which is always fun to listen to then to the elevator
manager pushes the button and we just need to hang tight for a few seconds
right and again following the blue dot which is the manager around
the cage or the vault i should say
we shall wait for the boys to push the carts out
there we go and we’ve taken control of michael again
so just follow them back to the elevator this is all fairly straightforward stuff
no need for shooting the manager just lets us walk straight out with the gold back into the elevator
manager to press the button and we just need to hold tight again
follow trevor and our new friend back to the trucks
meanwhile if you you listen carefully trevor proves that he’s quite good at math
jump into the van when we can just off the edge here that’s fine
here we go wait for our friend to pop in there he is and follow the blue dot
we’ve been prompted to swap the franklin so we’ll swap over
and into the hacking minigame
right now what we need to do is change the lights to allow michael and co through but keep
merry weather away from them so the pattern they typically follow is this and what we need to do
is just make sure that the merry weather guys stay away so we’ll start by changing out the
lights there we go we can see them going through and we can see the destination bottom right there
as well and unfortunately they don’t make it easy for us all right so first mary with
a guy there on the right all right so we’ll let this guy through now we’ll hold him up actually
all right so let michael through make sure these guys stay on red all right so there’s
their prompt from franklin that’ll tell us where the next one is another merryweather
guy at the top left so we need to make sure that they’re red all right open michael back up
all right there we go
okay so straight across this time
all right another merryweather fella on the bottom left there but he’s no hassle for the moment
i’ll let these guys go and yeah we’re good we’re safe
all right one more down the south there we go so we just have hopefully there’s
one more change there we go they’re through and they should be home from it
there we go and now they’re home free so quick cut scene here and we find out a bit more about the
the unloading process and mary where the dew track is down so that’s okay
and that was good at michael gave up some cash to save this guy’s life he was of course just
doing his job it is a risky job but he was just doing his job wasn’t looking to harm anyone so
that’s okay pure extra bob for him means that he’s he’s all set up and of course now he’s an
accomplice so that’s fine merryweather are on their way there we go everyone grabs some cover
and now the fun begins all right so we’re
automatically dropped into trevor so we’re just going to make sure we use
this ability as much as we can here to make our shots as effective as possible
there we go it is quite a satisfying little pop that one
now as with other fights you want to really keep an eye on that minimap to find out where people
are and if visibility is poor use the reticle to figure out whether or not you’ve got a shot
if we get that fella out the back where is he there we are
all right couple more up the back there
now if you’re quick with that you could take them out with a grenade launcher uh or an
rpg but that’s all right so we’ll swap to michael instead take advantage of his ability while we can
big fan of the shotguns in these short range scenarios they’re a bit easier to
deal with better spread which makes it a little bit easier to take out
your enemies also means it’s easier to get that head shot count as well
oh damn he snuck up yeah don’t let yourself get flanked
all right we’ll just change positions here sneak into somewhere a little
easier to get to these last few and try and take out this wave
all right so quick swap to franklin there and let’s see if we can take out a few of these guys
his arm is looking a bit low already which isn’t helpful but that’s okay i think we’ll
get him through anyway all right a few more to go oh yeah he ain’t looking healthy got him
all right someone’s shooting at us from back there so let’s see if we can move and get out of the
out of the line of fire there
that’s the sniper’s taken out there a few more there on the other side so we’ll just
change positions grab a bit of cover swap out the michael instead there we go a couple more to go
where are they there there is
one out to the left there wait for him to pop his head back up there he is
a bit of cover now all right few more to go not too many
let’s wait for these guys to pop their heads up there he is one more left that’s him sorted
there we go and we now are in i think we’re in franklin
right so we just need to lose the cops while also staying relatively close to our guys
yep definitely with franklin
police aren’t terribly happy with us another five star warrant
and these gauntlets are a little bit heavier to ride than normal you can see it’s it’s a
bit tightly there corns are not known for being too taily but with all of that extra weight in
the back they’re a little all over the place take it easy surprisingly enough going slower
is better around the corners because that will mean that you can get through them a lot quicker
through the construction site here under the tunnel the building thing
these things do not handle well with all that extra weight
there we go and that’s going to go up there we are yep so when you get unstuck use franklin’s
ability to re-stick yourself that just makes life a lot easier to deal with there we go
ah who was that
right and off we go again police choppers out there
it’s okay there’s not a lot we can do this is kind of a scripted scene so
back into the pack and just keep following the blue dots until we get to the trucks there
all right line yourself up similar to when we did the delivery job for devon weston here we go in
and we’re golden excellent and now a bit of a cutscene and some
exposition which is great to listen to again there’s no time limit on this
so i highly recommend taking yourself all the way through it
into the escalade and then head back to michael’s place
now we are a ways out it is a bit of a drive but that is okay follow the yellow line
all right so as we come out of rockford hills there we’ve just got the gps marker
on the left hand side which isn’t too far away from michael’s house
so there’s been some exposition all the way here which has been fun to listen to
the guys are still bickering even though they’ve got that 20 mil each
off to the left and then in to michael’s place wait for the gate
and you’ll see the marker there at the end pull up
and there’s some more exposition here lester and and michael do a bit of celebrating
and trevor has a bit of a tanty along with michael but that’s okay
they’ve finally done the big score so that’s brilliant
and that’s gold so scored our 20 out of 20 with head shots uh signal signal man got a uh a seven
so that was all right storm that in with uh with ten signals the maximum and uh pretty damn good
accuracy if you don’t if i don’t say so myself so that was all right we got the full take at
201 million and everyone else gets 24 million so that’s not bad that’s not a bad day’s work at all
so what are your thoughts do you have any tips for other viewers or could this have been done
differently leave your comment down below and check out the video on the left for the next
storyline mission or the one on the right for some more old grumpy game of goodness
