Grand Theft Auto 5: How to Get Gold in Mission 6 – Chop
In this Grand Theft Auto 5 mission, we’ll be cosplaying as a fairy and finding out how truly dumb Lamar Davis is. In this continuing series of getting gold in every damn mission in GTA 5, we take a look at Mission 6 – Chop.
Welcome back to another guide from Old Grumpy Gamer. Grand Theft Auto is a truly massive game, and with GTA 5 and constant updates from Rockstar for GTA Online, there’s no shortage of new content and interesting things to do. Join us as we take a look at how to get gold in the Chop mission.
Getting Gold in Mission 6 – Chop
To get gold in this mission, players need to return Lamar’s van without a scratch, play as Chop for no less than 10 seconds, and use Franklin’s ability for at least seven seconds. To get started, jump into Lamar’s van as soon as Chop’s in the car and Lamar jumps in. The GPS will pop up, so follow that to the first wave point, and don’t forget to use Franklin’s ability to avoid scratching Lamar’s wheels.
Pull up to the left. It doesn’t matter which way you pull in the van; it will get park anyway. We’ll get to the cutscene at which point we attempt to kidnap the Baller, and it goes about as well as you would expect it to when Lamar’s in charge of anything. After the cutscene, jump back into the van. You can see it’s been reparked, so it didn’t matter where we put it. Then we can chase the Baller. This is scripted, so there’s no point in trying to shoot them or run them over. It will be a complete waste of time, ammunition, and effort.
Again, don’t forget about Franklin’s ability; this is really handy to avoid traffic because we still need to keep up with the Baller even though it’s a scripted event. Keep up the chase until Chop picks up the trail again and heads straight into another boxcar. At this point, we can swap back to Franklin and open the first boxcar door on the right before swapping back to Chop.
Remember that we’re aiming to maximize our time as Chop to apprehend our target, load him into the van, and follow the GPS to the drop-off point for Lamar. He will make a call from his own personal cell phone and then blow the operation right before dropping off the phone and the Baller at the designated locations. Follow the GPS back to Lamar’s place to end the mission.
Bonus Easter Eggs
Before we get to the bonus easter eggs, we’d like to say a massive thank you to our Patreon backers whose contribution allows us to keep making these videos. Patreon backers get access to most videos early, are automatically entered into exclusive Patreon-only shark card draws, receive priority responses to questions, and are invited to join any of the Old Grumpy Gamers whenever we’re playing online. Details on how to become a backer are in the description below, and while you’re there, don’t forget to enter our semi-regular milestone shark card giveaways.
Now, onto the Easter eggs:
- Welcome back is rumored to represent the last time we were in a colorful version of GTA, with GTA 4 being a dark, bleak departure from the over-the-top ridiculousness of previous GTA franchises.
- Lamar is taking vanity plates to a whole new level by going on a kidnapping mission.
- If you change the radio to worldwide FM or rebel radio, Chop will go crazy because he’s not a fan, so we’ll skip that here to avoid any copyright claims.
- Bonus fact: There’s a very good chance that Lamar suffers from a chronic case of Dunning-Kruger.
