Join me, then, in our continuing series, getting gold in every damn mission, in GTA 5 as we look at the first heist The Jewel Store Job.

…and don’t forget to hang about until the end, so you can catch our bonus tips, for improving the take.

Getting gold in this one is a bit challenging, so don’t be surprised if it takes a couple of runs at it. We’ll need to:

Know any neat mods we could use to do a bit more exploration in Lost Santos, or North Yankton? Leave your suggestions in the comments.

Driving from a Primo clothing factory, Michael must drop Franklin off at the construction site while the driver and gunman park the Bugstars van ahead of the jeweler’s. The player must traverse the roofs from around the road, take control of Franklin, use the vantage point from the recon mission, and throw a can of tear gas into the air vent. The gas is released into the store, unconsciously knocking everyone inside.

Michael, the driver and the gunman will then enter the store and start ransacking while Franklin goes to get the bikes. The amount of time available before the alarm starts will depend on the picked hacker, but since the gold medal requires the player to steal the jewelry within fifty seconds, any of them will do (in the enhanced edition; in the original version Rickie Lukens can only hold the alarm off for thirty seconds, while it takes a minimum of 43 seconds in the Smart approach to clear all the jewel cases). A bad gunman (Norm Richards) loses some of the jewels, taking the take down to around $4.5 million.

Both methods lead to similar escape. Having committed the robbery, Franklin escapes with the driver and the gunman on a bike. The motorcycle is driver-dependent, but does not make much of a difference. Karim Denz, a bad driver, can send panicky and unhelpful radio traffic instead of pro Eddie Toh ‘s calm and competent instructions, but that doesn’t really have any impact either. Join the crew, escape the cops and drive into the tunnel for sewer entry. If a low-skilled gunman is selected, then he will crash and fall off his bike before entering the tunnel along with his bag of jewels. When the player picks up the pack, the take won’t change, but otherwise; a large amount of the take is lost. There is a casualty cost to the gunman’s shooting, regardless. If you choose a highly skilled gunman, none of this happens.

The group finally ends up on the Los Santos River in a pack of waiting police cars using the Los Santos sewage network to escape the officers. Michael and the hacker have meanwhile went to get the delivery truck and use it to violently drive the cops out of the way.

If the focus of police is lost, the bikes are loaded into the truck and transported to Lester’s lockup where the crew is broken up. The maximum take for the mission is $4,946,153 if the player smashes all 20 displays and selects either a good shooter or a good driver (for the Noisy approach). Martin Madrazo will then earn $2,500,000, while the remainder will be divided between the crew members. Note that Franklin receives a fixed percentage as a hired gunman / driver for this, his first Heist, rather than splitting the take with Michael in equal measure.

hi in this video we’re going in smart as we make a
play for the jewels in the first heist in grand theft auto 5 the jewelry job
hi and welcome back my name’s 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 first heist the jewelry store job
and don’t forget to hang around to the end so you can catch our bonus tips for improving the take
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 stay up to date getting gold in this one’s a bit challenging
so don’t be surprised if it takes a couple of runs at it we’ll need to steal the jewellery
within 50 seconds pretend franklin during the ls river chase and steal the jewellery
from all 20 glass cabinets so let’s pick up where we drop off franklin at the construction
alrighty so franklin will jump out of the car
and we take control of him there so through the doors and then up to the stairs on the right
round to the right up the ladder
up the second ladder and then do a quick u-turn through the door and then out and to the left
so what we’re going to do next is jump over the building bulkheads i suppose you call them
then up the stairs and up the ladder
once we’re off the ladder we want to head over to the left and then around
over the wall bit more graceful than last time this time
up the first aircon up the maintenance area and then up the next aircon and we want to just grab
out the bz grenades hang around to the right there and chuck it more or less straight at
the egg on there
so we can go straight down not as graceful as it could have been but that’s all right
and we cut to the jewelry store
so as soon as this cut scene is finished we take control of michael as he
casually wanders in to the jewelry store there
all right start with the first cabinets so do a quick smash and then the next one right next to it
head around to the ones on the far side do a quick smash on the one on the left
then the one on the right then turn around and grab the next ones behind
you again first one on the left and then the second one on the right next is to the
uh service counter there just on the left smash that one and then around to the right
one two and then turn around
grab the one on the left there and then just around the corner and that’s the last one
on the right so that’s everything so now we can exit the building
skip to the cutscene where we have the cop there michael says his
iconic line which uh makes makes trevor’s day and we swap over to franklin now we’ve
picked a better driver this time around so we have the correct bikes for the run
swing around to the left keep an eye on that traffic there’s always cops and traffic here
so drop straight into franklin’s ability and just get yourself around anything metally
we’ve got cops off to the left so we’re just going to swing to the right
and then in between those two markers and off the bridge onto the highway
franklin’s ability is really handy to maneuver in this tunnel as well
through into the tunnel quick drop and then around to the right again
it doesn’t matter which one of these tunnels you take they both pop out at the same time but i like
to follow where the the lead takes us around to the left quick right hand turn there another right
and then through the construction site so drop into franklin’s ability here
and that will help you stay out of trouble
so we’ll just head through the rest of the tunnel it’s fairly straightforward from here on out
although there are a few drops you can get into strife if you’re not paying attention
through the cage
all right now we’re coming back up to the surface level again
one more quick rise and then we’re exiting the tunnel where we will immediately swap to michael
okay so michael’s job is to take out the police cars and they are mercifully easy with this one
just a quick nudge and off they go so we’ll cross over the leg once we’ve taken out those first two
clobber that first that next one one more to go clip this one on the right here
and then we’ll cross over again now there’s two tunnels here where the police will pop out
so if you hang off to the left there without going too far up
makes a really easy mark then get back over to the left again for the next one
there he is quick nudge and then off he goes and that’s the hard stuff done
so now we’re clear of the cops we will pull in and load the bikes up

okay so we’ll rejoin the action with me making an utter mockery of getting back to the base
and we just need to quite simply follow the gps around a few blocks
well here the a bit of exposition there as the guys celebrate their win
and franklin is utterly exacerbated at how surprisingly relatively speaking easy that was
so we’ll hang around to the right hang it right
quick ride again and then sneak in to leicester’s little storage facility
so thanks for watching to the end here are my top tips for maximizing the take regardless of
your crew if you use a zigzag pattern between the cases to minimise time it will give you the best
chance of getting all of the jewels before the alarm is triggered if you use norm richards as
the gunman don’t forget to pick up his dropped bag when he eats it before the tunnel entrance

been done differently leave your comment down below check out the video on the left
