Get Gold in the GTA 5 Fair Game Mission

In this video, we will provide a walkthrough of the Grand Theft Auto 5 mission, Fair Game, and share tips on how to obtain gold in this mission. Grand Theft Auto is an incredibly vast game, and with regular updates from Rockstar for GTA Online, players will never run out of exciting content to explore. In our continuing series of getting gold in every mission in GTA 5, we will be focusing on the Cletus hunting mission, Fair Game. This mission is tedious, but completing it unlocks the hunting challenges, which can be an excellent source of cash early in the game.

Walkthrough of the Mission

After the briefing, players will need to follow Cletus into the forest. It’s not essential to run as Cletus moves at his own pace, which is typically similar to the player’s walking pace. As players explore the forest, Cletus will provide a full briefing on how to track the elk, and players must make three heart shots to the elk without getting detected.

It is crucial to avoid detection throughout the mission. To do so, players must keep an eye on the wind speed and direction, which will appear on the bottom right of the screen. The first step is to use the elk call to locate an elk in the general area. Once players receive a response, they will see the location on the minimap. Players must then use Trevor’s stealth to approach the elk and make a heart shot, ideally hitting the chest area. Players can wait for the elk to pop its head up a few times before taking the shot.

Cletus will guide players to the general area of the next elk. However, players must ensure they only attempt to take down the male elk or bucks, not the female elk, aka does. Players must use the elk whistle again to receive a response and locate the next elk. Again, players must keep an eye on the wind speed and direction. Once players have a good line of sight with the elk, they can take a heart shot to take it down. Players must repeat this process two more times to complete the mission requirements.

After players have successfully taken down all required elk, they will receive instructions to approach the ones they have taken down previously and photograph them. Players must take a photo of the elk using their in-game phone and send it to Cletus. Once players have completed this step, Cletus will send a prompt confirming their success in the mission, earning them a gold rating.

Unlocking Additional Revenue and Content

The mission is a great way to earn additional revenue early in the game, which players can put towards weaponry, a car, or even the airfield. Completing the mission unlocks the hunting challenges, which can be an excellent source of additional cash. Additionally, completing the mission successfully allows players to unlock additional content, such as upgrading Trevor’s hunting skills.


The Fair Game hunting mission in Grand Theft Auto 5 can be tedious, but it’s an excellent source of additional revenue early in the game. Completing the mission requirements without detection and making three heart shots to the elk can earn players a gold rating, unlocking additional content and revenue sources.

the bell to stay up to date getting gold in this one is really tedious but it unlocks the hunting
challenges which can earn you some worthwhile cash early game to get gold in this one we’ll need to
avoid detection and make three heart shots to the elk so let’s pick it up after the briefing
we’ll just follow cletus there and we’re going into the forest now again not a lot of point in
running here cletus moves at his own pace at least you know his walking pace isn’t too different
to your walking pace unlike a lot of escort missions but that’s all right so if you
keep an ear out here cletus will give you a full briefing on what to do and how to track the help
we’ve got trevor with that thing in his mouth already so that’s all good and you can see now the
wind speed and direction has just popped up on the bottom right of screen so the first thing we need
to do as we wander in is start sounding off with the elk call all right you can see now we have
a little marker on screen showing the general area that the elk is get out of the way of the bush
what we want to do is try and either get closer and we’re just using trevor’s stealth here
to uh to find them keeping an eye on where the wind is all right here we go and we’ll
wait for them to pop their head up we want to get that chest shot in as much as possible so
they will always pop their head up every a couple of times there we go there’s one so we shot them
in the shoulder blade there so that’s all good all right and clear this will pipe back up and
say we need to go find another one now so so once we’re prompted we’ll use the elk whistle
and hopefully we’ll get a reply and as soon as we do then we’ll see up on the minimap where
the l is in general here we go all right so again we really need to keep an eye
on that wind speed and direction all right there he is so again we’ll wait for them to
pop their head up and then take a shot we want to hit it right in the shoulder blades
there we go done all right so cletus is pretty impressed with that that’s great
and he’s going to guide us through to roughly the area of the next ones now it’s important
that we hit the buck and not the dough in this one cletus is very very clear about that we only want
the ones with the horns so we use whistle again and hopefully one of them will reply there we go
it’s a pretty big search area so we’ll just take a bit of a wander up there and once we get a bit
closer we can run the run the whistle again to make sure that’s all good now we do again really
important need to keep an eye on that wind speed so you can see we’re heading down to the path here
so we get a good line and we stay downwind because if you go upwind well trevor certainly scares them
off let’s say that let’s see if we can get a line there we go i saw some movement there
wait for them to pop their head up all right so we’re going for the one on the left because the
one on the right is a doe boom done great so that is cletus signed off so we’re going to do one more
there we go and again keeping an eye on where the wind is so we want to just sort of head around to
the right if we can’t get a line on them and we’ll see how we go all right so moving in the direction
the arrow is facing keeps us down downwind and feel free to use that whistle again to get a
little bit closer or narrow the area wherever you can so we’ve got a good arrow there we’ll see if
we can get a line on them once we get a little bit of higher ground there we go right so done
so we now have instructions to go and approach the elk we’ve just downed there we go and we
get prompted to photograph the elk so bring up your phone head to the snapmatic bottom left
and then take a photo for cletus
all right send that off
just wait for a quick reply normally only takes a couple of seconds
there it is oh and we’ve got a call so that’s even better
and that is gold so got downwind challenge so we didn’t get detected at all and the heart
hunter which is the three for three very very happy with that and just as importantly we’ve
managed to unlock some additional revenue source for trevor so if you’re doing this early game
that means that you can raise a bit of money for some extra weaponry or a car or to pick up the
airfield or one of the other things before you go into the heists so what are your thoughts do
