We’re going through how to get Gold in the most controversial GTA 5 Mission By the Book; where we find out that Trevor really is a big softie.

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 Grand Theft Auto Mission, By the Book.

…and don’t forget to hang about until the end, so you can catch our bonus tips, on keeping Kerimov alive.

Before we start, a quick warning. This mission was controversial when GTA was released, and is still confronting today. The following contains images of stylised torture. Some viewers may find this distressing.

Getting gold in this mission is rough. We’ll need to keep a real eye on the welfare of our prisoner; and make sure we take out the right target.

To get gold in this one we’ll need to
* Use all four torture techniques
* Keep Kerimov’s heart from giving out

“U In My Arms” by Jeremy Blake


Haines wants Michael to assassinate Tahir Javan, an Azerbaijani man who Haines and Norton claim has ties to terrorism.

Kerimov previously set up an audio-visual system for Javan and so is the FIB’s only source of information.

Haines orders Michael to go with Norton to locate Javan, while Trevor and Haines remain in the warehouse with Kerimov.

Kerimov lives in Morningwood, Los Santos, with his family.

The IAA kidnapped Kerimov six weeks earlier and faked his death to “Remove him from the record”, then hold him as an intelligence asset and possible jihadist for “Debrief”.

Michael is ordered to verify the identity of his corpse at the Los Santos County Coroner Office in Davis and has to fight his way out of the building after discovering the cadaver is a “Large black woman” instead. Under the orders of Steve Haines, Michael, Franklin Clinton and Trevor Philips extract him from the 36th floor of the IAA Headquarters in the midst of a violent interrogation session led by Karen Daniels.

Kerimov is then brutally tortured by Trevor under Steve’s supervision, until he gives them enough information so that Michael and Dave Norton can locate and kill Tahir Javan.

Steve gives Trevor the order to kill Kerimov, claiming that he is no longer useful.

Trevor decides instead to let Kerimov live, because he doesn’t like taking orders from government types, and also because Kerimov must “Deliver a message” about the pointlessness of torture.

Once dropped off at the airport, Kerimov attempts to run away.
