Grand Theft Auto 5: Target Practice Mission Walkthrough

Grand Theft Auto 5, or GTA 5, is a massively popular and expansive game that continues to receive updates from Rockstar for their GTA Online platform. In this video, we’ll be taking a look at how to get gold in the Target Practice mission.

If you’re new to the channel, we offer how-to guides, news, and giveaways, so consider subscribing and ringing the bell to stay up to date. In the Target Practice mission, we’ll need to shoot three satellite dishes without missing, maintain 75% accuracy on tires, and make a double kill on one of the coyotes.

Getting Started

To begin, follow Cletus up the stairs and swing around to the left. Unfortunately, you can’t really speed him up, so there’s not much point in running ahead. Once you reach the first satellite dish, aim and shoot to take it out. Continue on to the second and third dishes and shoot them as well.

After destroying the satellite dishes, head to the motel where you’ll see a yellow marker has appeared. Take Cletus’ buggy and follow the GPS marker to the motel. Head up the stairs and wait for Cletus to join you.

Shooting Tires

The next challenge is to take out some tires while maintaining at least 75% accuracy. Look for vehicles with a nice open wheel stance, such as four-wheel drives, tractors, or any large vehicle. Take your time and wait for a proper long run, rather than trying to shoot them when they’re perpendicular to you. Hit three out of the four tires, and make sure you don’t hit a post or wall.

Taking Down Coyotes

Once you’re done with the tires, head to the next waypoint with your rifle ready. There will be a few coyotes in the area, and you’ll need to make a double kill on at least one of them. Take your time and wait for a good opportunity to take the shot.

The depth of field in this section can be challenging, so be patient and wait for the right moment. Aim carefully and shoot both coyotes at the same time to get the ‘2 for 1’ kill. Take your time and wait for the coyotes to come back around the corner to get the shot.

subscribing and ring the bell to stay up to date getting gold in this one is a bit of fun and helps
get your hands on with a long barrel clear this is an absolute character too to get gold in this one
we’ll need to shoot three satellite dishes without missing maintain 75 accuracy on tyres and do a
double kill on one of the coyotes right so let’s pick it up from the end of the cutscene so we just
follow cletus up the stairs there and then swing around to the left when we get there unfortunately
we can’t really speed him up so there’s not a lot of point in running up to the the first thing so
what we’re going to do is peg these satellite dishes so there’s the first one another one’s
just out of the way there so past the flag and that’s the second and just to the right there
there we go nice and easy all right so the next thing we want to do is head to the motel so
you can see the yellow marker has popped up over there we’re just going to borrow his little buggy
wait for cletus to join us again not a lot of point in running with
this one because he just moves at his own pace
all right and now we’ve got the gps marker there so we’ll follow that to the motel
pop out there we go and head up the i think it’s up the stairs next just wait for cletus here
head around the corner and uh i think we’re probably just gonna go wait in the corner here
there we go so the next challenge is to take out some tyres and we need to hit 75 accuracy so
we’ll line up and wait for some traffic to come along now what we’re looking for hopefully is
vehicles that have a nice open wheel stance four wheel drives are nice because they’re
quite big tractors that kind of gear and just take your time and really track what
you’re after make sure you don’t hit a post because we do have to hit four sorry three
out of the four and i like to wait until we get a proper long run on it there we go
missed and he’s off a proper long run on it rather than trying to catch it when it’s um immediately
or sorry perpendicular to you right so there’s one all right let’s see how we go
the minivan it’s not going to be a lot of fun all right minivan has stopped so that’s nice
there we go
all right so wait for one more and now hopefully that’s traffic stopped
on both sides so that will give us a plumb shot on this next one
no he’s gone straight past that’s all good
but once we get a bit of length on him let’s see if we can get someone else to stop
all right now so he’s going straight past but that’s okay we’ll get a bit of length on him
there we go excellent so pop the gun away again because you just move a bit quicker with it
and we’ll follow cletus back to the next waypoint
head up the little sort of uh collapsed roof here we want to head over to the far corner the rifle
ready and there’s going to be a few coyotes there and fortunately rockstar gives plenty
of opportunity to take care of of these guys we need to get a double shot in there somewhere
depth of field on this can be an absolute pain in the backside so if you can dial it
back dial it back but if not you just have to be a bit patient and the trick here is
genuinely patient so you want to get your double kill first if you don’t what will
happen is the coyotes will scatter and then you have zero chance at uh getting that double
and you won’t be able to get gold so just take your time wait for a plum opportunity
all right so they’re all hidden for the moment we’ll just wait and wait for them to come around
the corner hopefully there’s another couple up there there we go and a few more coming back out
so they will just keep wandering around so do take your time with this there is no time limit
there we go nice got the double one more there we go and that’s all three done
and that’s gold so we got the two for one managed to keep the four shots available
and we’re three for three on the satellites so what are your thoughts do you have any tips for
other viewers or could this be done differently leave your comment down below and check out
the video on the left for the next clearedest mission or the one on the right for some more old
grumpy gamer goodness stay safe wash your hands and we’ll see you in the next video
