GTA 5 Caida Libre Mission: How to Get Gold
In this video, we will guide you through the Caida Libre mission in Grand Theft Auto 5 to help you achieve a gold ranking. The mission involves chasing down a plane on a motorcycle and dropping it in three shots, reaching top speed without crashing the bike, and completing the mission in less than 9 minutes and 45 seconds.
The time limit makes it challenging to get gold in this mission, but don’t worry as we will provide you with the strategies to complete the mission successfully. Follow our guide below to get through the mission without any hassles and achieve gold ranking.
Step 1: Start the Mission and Chase the Plane
As soon as the cutscene ends, jump straight into Michael’s car without any wasted time. Drive as fast as you can to the rendezvous point at the top of the observatory while taking care not to crash or hit any wildlife in your way. Once you reach the marker, pull up, and you will see the van on your left. Jump into the van, and it will automatically throw you on to the gun.
The plane will be visible on the screen, and you will need to shoot it down with the gun. For a gold ranking, you need to drop the plane in three shots. To make it easier, use Michael’s ability to slow the plane and improve your chances of hitting the engine every time. If you are not sure of the final location, set a marker here and try to find the shots in rapid succession.
Step 2: Chase the Plane on a Bike
After dropping the plane, swap to Trevor and chase the plane on his motorcycle. Keep to the off-road as much as possible and avoid hitting any fence posts, cactus, or other obstacles while riding. Lean right into the bike for maximum speed, and you will hit your top speed once you hit the point where the plane lands.
Step 3: Complete the Mission and Achieve Gold Ranking
Once the plane lands, disorient the person inside and get into the plane. You will automatically swap to Michael, who will be in the van when you rejoin him. Now, instead of heading back to Madrazo’s place, you need to head to the Stoner Cement Works, which is the final destination. You can barrel through to the destination to save time and take advantage of any shortcuts or off-roading in your way.
At the cement works, you need to park the van and select an explosive to destroy the van. Clear out of the way and detonate the explosive to complete the mission. For a gold ranking, you need to complete the mission in 9 minutes and 45 seconds or less without crashing the bike.
If you want to get through this mission the first time, use Michael’s ability to slow down the plane and find the shots in rapid succession. Set a marker to help you locate the final destination if you are unsure of the location. To prevent crashing the bike, lean into it, and take advantage of all shortcuts, off-roading, and top speed opportunities.
