Grand Theft Auto 5 is a truly massive game with a seemingly endless amount of content and interesting things to do. In this video, we continue our series on getting gold in everyday missions in GTA 5. We’re taking a look at the first prep mission for the Jewel Store Heist and showing you how to get that enviable gold medal rating.
Casing the Jewelry Store
Getting gold in this prep mission is pretty straightforward. All we need to do is capture all three security cameras in one picture and complete the mission in under eight minutes. Follow these steps to ace the mission. We’ll start by skipping the cutscene, jumping into the car, and waiting for Lester to get in. Once he’s in, we’ll do a quick U-turn and head to the jewelry store. When we pull up, we’ll be just around the corner from the store, so once we eventually hit the marker, jump out and run to the store. At the store, we’ll be forced to slow down by a security guard who will get the door for us. We want to head to the back corner, spin around, and take a photo using our camera over the hidden camera. Grab that angle so we can get all three security cameras. Once we have the picture, head to the counter, have a quick chat with the lady, and then exit the building. Once outside, the security guard will open the door for us, and we’ll start running back to the car. Once in, we’ll head towards the construction site, hang a right at the next intersection, and then another right at the following intersection. We’ll jump out in front of the construction site, head through the door, and make our way upstairs. After going up two ladders, we’ll do a quick U-turn to the left and onto the next building. Up more ladders, onto another building before capturing the image of a large vent. We’ll then circle back to the construction site and make our way back to Lester’s warehouse.
The Jewel Store Heist
Before we get to our recommendations for the first heist, be sure to join us as we make a return to our YouTube channel for more tips, guides, and giveaways. Don’t forget to subscribe and ring the bell, stay engaged with our social media channels. As we slip into the final portion of the video, you’ll arrive at Lester’s warehouse. You can pull into a spot and transition into planning the heist. Our recommendation for the heist is to go in smart. There is less chance of collateral damage, and the setups are pretty fun and pretty easy. The take for going in smart is the same as going in loud. Our crew pick is Eddie Toh for the driver, Norm Richards for the gunman, and Ricky Lukens as the hacker. The driver brings all the right gear and preps well, Richards is not spectacular but does drop his money, and Ricky Lukens may not be much of a hacker, but he’s cheap.
We hope that our tips and tricks will help you achieve that coveted gold medal rating in the Casing the Jewelry Store mission in Grand Theft Auto 5.
