How to Get Gold in the GTA 5 Mission “An American Welcome”
If you’re a fan of Grand Theft Auto, then you know that getting gold in every mission is a true accomplishment. In this walkthrough, we’ll be taking on the “An American Welcome” mission and showing you how to get that coveted gold ranking.
This mission is part of the GTA V Border Patrol missions and involves Joe and Josef, two self-proclaimed lawmen, who are trying to stop illegal immigrants from crossing the border. The mission is divided into two parts, and both parts require some precision and good timing.
Part One: Stopping the First Assailant in 30 Seconds
First, you need to stop the first assailant within 30 seconds. You’ll be given control of a car, and you need to head off quickly, cutting the corner slightly, and then stick to the right-hand side. Ignore the person on the left. Drive off of the edge and then start spamming the stun gun button as soon as you regain control of your car. You need to take out the first assailant with your stun gun or else you won’t get gold. If you miss, it’s best to blow yourself up and try again. Wait for Joe and Josef to jump back in and then drive to the next location.
Part Two: Stop the Second Group in 55 Seconds and Use the Stun Gun on All of the Assailants
The next stage takes place at a set of concrete works. Once you reach the marked location, you’ll see a couple of bikes passing by. Chase them down and run them over, using the car’s momentum to knock them out. Don’t try to stun them as it will take too long. Once you’ve taken down the first assailant, move onto the second one, who will be driving a Sanchez bike. You can use the stun gun to take him out quickly, but timing is essential. Wait for him to recover from the stun before trying again.
If you don’t park near enough to the assailants, you may need to jump out of the car and stun them manually. Once both assailants are secure, wait for Joe and Josef to get back in the car before heading to the next location.
After the second part is complete, you’ll need to find a truck or car to take back to the border. Once you find a vehicle, drive away from the location and wait for Joe and Josef to leave. When the boys drive away, the mission will be complete. If you get gold, it means that you’ve managed to stop all assailants within the time limit and used the stun gun on all of the assailants.
That’s all there is to it! It may take a couple of tries to get the timing right, but with a bit of practice, you should be able to get gold in no time.
