Grand Theft Auto 5 Military Hardware Mission Walkthrough

In Grand Theft Auto 5, completing the Military Hardware mission and achieving a gold rating requires patience and timing, as well as some preparation. In this guide by the Old Grumpy Gamer, we’ll show you how to hijack a military convoy, stop it with a sticky bomb, and get five headshots to achieve gold.


To make the mission easier, we highly recommend you stock up on body armor, sticky bombs, and rifle and shotgun ammo. You can find these items by visiting convenience stores and Ammu-Nation shops.

Hijacking the Convoy

To hijack the convoy, pull up alongside it and jump out of your car. Select the sticky bomb and throw it at the truck. Once you have stopped the convoy, ramp up your aggression level, pop into cover, and take out the five enemies with five headshots. Be sure to take your time and check for any hidden enemies using your mini-map.

Driving Back Home

Once you have taken out the enemies, jump onto the military truck and follow the GPS back home. Take your time and drive leisurely, but stay cautious as traffic can always be a risk.

Achieving Gold

As you return to Sandy Shores, head towards the shop and park your truck. Jump out and walk away, leaving the truck behind you. If you have completed the mission correctly, you will achieve a gold rating.

Top Tips for Surviving the Mission

To ensure you survive the mission, follow these tips: give yourself time to park your car and throw the sticky bomb, keep an eye on your mini-map for hidden enemies, and allow for traffic when placing the sticky bomb.
