Getting Gold in GTA 5 Complications Mission
Grand Theft Auto 5 is a massive game, and with the constant updates from Rockstar for GTA Online, there’s no shortage of new content and interesting things to do in the game. In this video, we go through the fourth mission, Complications, and show you how to get the gold medal by beating the timer, knocking out the gardener, and avoiding getting hit when punching on with Simeon. This mission contains some important exposition, so we recommend playing the whole thing through, including cutscenes, before going for gold.
Starting the Mission
To begin the mission, we recommend grabbing a car and making your way to Michael’s. You can take any car from Simeon’s lot – the faster, the better. Be sure to use Franklin’s ability while driving around tight spots, avoiding traffic, and speeding up while going around corners and through intersections. Using Franklin’s ability can help you save a few precious seconds in the mission.
Knocking Out the Gardener
Once you’ve arrived at Michael’s, park just past the Desantis Drive, and head for the brown gate located between the two pillars. Drop into stealth mode and sneak up behind the gardener. Target them and give them a good hit on the head. Run around to the open carport, climb up on top of the ute, up onto its roof, turn around, press the jump button, and sneak in. Wait for Tracy to wander past, and move quickly through the stairs and around to the left.
Jump into the car and make your way back to Simeon, who you will give a call to let him know you have the car. Michael will stick his head up, and when he does, it becomes hard to control the car. So, take it easy, slow down, and regain relative control to the car. Follow the GPS back to Simeon’s Premium Deluxe Auto. Pull up, and there’s a cutscene here that we recommend skipping.
Finishing the Mission
After the cutscene, take off, use Franklin’s ability if you need to avoid traffic, and head straight into the door/window. Simeon comes over, and then we switch to Michael. We recommend waiting for Simeon to throw the first punch before taking him out. Keep wailing on him, and as long as you keep going and not let up, he won’t get another shot in.
Before starting a timed mission, check out the cars surrounding the starting point to see which is the fastest. You can use Franklin’s ability to stop on a dime if you can’t avoid a prank. As soon as a cutscene starts, start mashing the skip button over and over again to get through it as quickly as possible.
And that’s how you get the gold medal in Grand Theft Auto 5’s Complications mission. Do you have any tips for other viewers? Let us know in the comments below!
