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.

Driving Michael

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.

Bonus Tips

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!

with simeon one more note this mission contains some important exposition so
i recommend playing the whole thing through including cut scenes before
going for gold so let’s dive into the action okay so
let’s start by skipping the cutscene we’ll grab a car
and then make our way to michael’s so jump in you can take any car from
simeon’s lot faster the better but in this case we
just grabbed what we could don’t forget about using franklin’s
ability as well while you’re driving up to squeak through some of the
more tight spots avoid traffic and also to speed up while you’re going around
corners and throw intersections you’ll notice every time that we use
franklin’s ability as well we come out of the corners a bit quicker
than we went in which is really really handy for just shaving
those extra few seconds off all right so we’ll pull up just past the
desantis drive you’ll see the light post there that’s a
good spot to park jump out of the car and then head for
that brown gate between the two pillars drop into stealth then sneak up behind
the gardener target them and give them a good clock around the head so if you
have a look top left you’ll see the controls there
once you’ve done that run and i mean run around to the open carport clamber up
on top of the ute and then up onto its roof turn around
press the jump button and that will get you up onto the roof and then sneak
wait for tracy to wander past stick in stealth
move quickly through here just again look to the top left for the controls
down the stairs and then around and to the left just ignore the tennis coach
all right so through the door and then jump in the car you can quickly see
there michael’s hiding underneath the blanket
but we don’t know that quite yet so head out watch out for the gate
and then head back towards simeon so you’ll
give simian a quick call tell him you’ve got the car and then
after a few moments michael will stick his head up all right
now pro tip here when michael pops his head
up it becomes really really hard to control the car so
just take it easy slow down don’t try and go flat out
as soon as you have relative control again keep going
and follow the gps back to simeon’s premium deluxe auto okay so as we
pull up we can see the premium deluxe on the left and then
we will pull over to the right and there’s another
cut scene here we just want to skip that all right take
off you can use franklin’s ability if you need to
just to avoid traffic but we had a clear run here go straight into the door
or window i should say simeon comes over he’s clearly
um upset and then we switch to michael i like to wait for simeon to throw the
first punch it just opens him up a bit and then you can utterly wail on him and
as long as you don’t let up he won’t get another shot in
so keep going and then eventually he’ll be pinned against the car we’ll skip the
cutscene again and then we’re there before we get to
