Preparing for the Mission

Before you start the mission, it is important to ensure that Franklin has full armor, full health, machine gun ammunition, and sticky bombs. These items will be essential for completing the mission successfully and achieving a gold rating. In order to achieve gold, you will need to complete the following tasks:

  • Complete the custodial work in less than three minutes.
  • Escape with 40 oxygen in the tank.
  • Abseil down the elevator shaft in less than 30 seconds.
  • Complete the whole mission in 18 minutes or less.

With this in mind, let’s dive into the mission.

The Covert Method

Start by playing as Michael and following the GPS to the FIB building. Once you arrive, head inside and make your way to the elevator. Skip any unnecessary cutscenes to save time. During the custodial work, it is important to clean up each dirt spot thoroughly. Be strategic with your placement of the mop and bucket, as some spots may require extra attention.

After completing the custodial work in less than three minutes, head to the marker and switch to Franklin. Call Michael, then go and collect him. Once Michael is in the truck, call up your phone and detonate the sticky bomb. Drive away and make sure you don’t clip the ambulance or the police car on the way out.

Once you have made your escape, follow the GPS to the garage and park Michael’s car there. Grab the Fire Crew outfit and continue following the GPS. Be sure to take out any enemies quickly and efficiently.

When you arrive at the elevator shaft, abseil down as quickly as possible. Do not worry too much about debris, as it is unlikely to hit you. Once you reach the bottom of the shaft, follow Michael to the fire truck.

Once everyone is in the truck, drive back to Lester’s garment factory. Drop a sticky bomb on the truck and detonate it once everyone has got clear. Skip any unnecessary cutscenes and congratulations – you have achieved gold in The Bureau Raid mission!

getting gold in this one’s fairly challenging especially with a lack of visibility later in
the mission before you start i highly recommend you ensure franklin has full armor full health
machine gun ammunition and sticky bombs to get gold in this one we’ll need to complete
the custodial work in less than three minutes escape with 40 oxygen in the tank abseil down
the elevator shaft in less than 30 seconds and complete the whole mission in 18 minutes or less
so let’s pick it up as michael heads over to his shift at the fib
we just need to after we’ve jumped in the car here follow the gps
to the fib building so all fairly straightforward at this point
all right so we’re heading up the bridge and to the main entrance for the fib
head on in bearing in mind we are on a timeline so we need to
run through here and once we’re in we’ll be slow to a walk there we go okay so
pick a turn style any turn style and we’ll just use the pass that we purchased before
in we go down the hallway and then uh any one of the
elevators there on the left hand side i think we’ll do the trick
straight across the hole
and skip the cutscene and off we go now this is surprisingly challenging we need
to make sure we don’t dally about so the trick here is to plonk your bucket fairly
close to wherever you need to use the mop and then make sure we take an extra
second to line ourselves up and get the absolute most coverage we can per sweep
we can see there straight away with some of the bigger dirt piles the mop needs some extra work
go collect the bomb and again skipping all the cutscenes because we only have a very limited time
so we’ll pick up the bucket and then move to the next main point
down the hole and then we’ll drop our bucket somewhere
sort of in the middle between the two dirt spots and make sure that we can get to it
fairly quickly because we will need to clean them off a little bit afterwards
now fun fact i actually found getting this right
harder than the hacking minigame with ricky lukens in the rooftop method as well
all right quickly clean the pop
we’ll get that last spot there
and then grab the bucket again
so you can see here i’m skipping as many cut scenes as i possibly can to make sure
that we get that three minutes so again pop the bucket about halfway in between the two
and we’ll give it a quick pre-emptive clean here because the next one’s a
fairly big mark that will need cleaning halfway through if we leave it
there we go into the bathroom and so into the gents hanger right and then
i believe we’re looking at the i think it’s the second stall there we go so that’s the next one
planted and we’ll just skip the cut scene again back out and go and collect our bucket again
and off to the next spot
all right we’ll pop that away and that’s the janitorial work done and i think we
only just squeak that in too okay and across and then back into the elevator
and it will automatically drop us off at the ground floor and we can head back out again
all right so we can start running again we’ll just head straight to the marker
and what i call franklin as soon as we’re there so we should always hop to franklin here
there we go and we’ll go and collect michael now so just follow the gps
there we go and there’s michael he’ll jump in the truck
all right so bring up the phone and then detonate skip the cutscene so up and around the corner
and then up the bridge
everybody out and we’ve auto swapped to franklin so we’ll stay as franklin for the duration of the
mission we can see some of the fireballs falling and debris falling from the top of the building
so just run in straight through and then into the elevator on the left
so this is a neat way to disguise a loading screen we don’t need to worry about that
so there we go and then out and follow michael to the server room
all right all the way up to i think it’s the 53rd
here we go through the door and just need to go through i think this one and wait for michael
to lead us through to the next one there we go okay so we’re in the atrium up the top
we’ve got the main door on the right hand side there we just need to throw a sticky bomb at that
chuck that get clear
there we go and then we’ll head into the server room
and it will automatically go and collect the due date for us and then head back out
skip the cut scene again as it gets a bit shaky
and then we’ll go and find the rest of the team get clear of what’s going to be an explosion
and we’ve lost one of our guys so we just want to make sure that we’re standing in front of richards
there and he’ll be declared doa out and to the left and we’ll try and follow our team for a bit
visibility is really really tough here but
as long as you keep it on the blue dots you should be right
all right so we’re going to cop an explosion there and franklin gets ko so we’ll skip the
cut scene again and when we’re back up we’re on our own so we need to make sure
we’re armed now because we will face a few enemies okay so we’ve just picked a shotty
actually we might swap to a machine gun there’s no accuracy requirement here so the old spray
and prey will definitely work we don’t have to worry about who we hit or how many people
we hit we just need to make sure that we get through fairly quickly without franklin dying so
don’t be afraid to empty a few clips even if you think you’re emptying them into not a whole lot
and again visibility is super poor here so you need to move quickly but also make
sure that you uh you don’t get clobbered too much and it is a balance and i’ll be
honest it took a couple of goes to get this right so another one through the door there
the real trick is to make sure that you keep a very very close eye on that mini
map to make sure that you’ve got every enemy on screen okay i think that’s it for enemies
so now we can just concentrate on catching up with michael and co
and the next thing is to head to the elevator shaft so you can see the marker there
michael will hopefully stay in front of us for most of the way to make it easier to see
excellent and then just abseil down using the controls on the top left
now a lot of guys will tell you to worry about debris here honestly i did this maybe
half a dozen times and never got hit so i wouldn’t worry about it too much
all right stormed in that that’s less than 30 seconds by a long shot
excellent and then we’ll head out and meet up with the fire truck excellent all right jump in
wait for everyone else to pile in and then we need to head out but make sure we don’t accidentally
clip that ambulance or the police car on the way so we’ll just drop into franklin’s ability for a
few moments there we go and that also gives us a little bit of speed boost to get us off the line
so we now have some markers on the gps we just need to follow the yellow marker there back to
the getaway car and you can see here i’m using franklin’s ability to get around the corners
because that gives us a massive massive speed boost all right down the ramp clear out any
traffic and then we want to stay in the left lane here and head under the overpass left lane again
all right and swing over to the right hand lane
and then left excellent that puts us in the car park there we go and jump out at the truck
and drop a sticky bomb on it don’t set it off yet otherwise michael will die so just go back
to a regular firearm we jump in the car make sure everyone’s clear and then off she goes
great and then again we’ll wait for everyone to drop in and head off to leicester’s
excellent pile out of the car and skip all of the cutscenes
and that’s gold
great so that was the mission time absolutely stormed it in with uh around about three and a
half minutes to spare had 60 left on the tank and got the janitorial work in with about 30 seconds
to spare so that’s that’s pretty good 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
