GTA 5 Derailed Mission Walkthrough: How to Get Gold

In this GTA 5 Derailed mission walkthrough, we will show you how to get gold in this mission in Grand Theft Auto 5. GTA is a truly massive game, and there’s no shortage of new content and interesting things to do, especially with the constant updates from Rockstar for GTA Online. Join us in our continuing series of getting gold in every damn mission in GTA 5. Don’t forget to hang about until the end for our bonus tips on how to get through this one first time.

To start, if you’re new to the channel, we do how-to guides, news, and giveaways, so consider subscribing and ringing the bell to stay up to date. Getting gold in this one is pretty straightforward. We recommend grabbing some body armor, some explosives, and sniper ammunition before starting the mission for the best preparation.

Starting the Mission

As soon as you take control of Trevor, jump on the bike, and head to the hospital to pick up some armor. The extra 30 seconds taken here could mean the difference between life and death for Trevor later, so it’s time saved. Now, follow the GPS to rendezvous with the train. The first thing we need to worry about is getting the bike up to top speed. You can push forward on the bike to lean forward on the bike and get going as quickly as possible.

Once you reach top speed, head to the rendezvous to meet the train. It’s essential not to get hit by any cars as it will slow Trevor down and reduce top armor and health, which is crucial later on. You don’t have to be alongside the train, but we recommend staying close to it.

Blowing up the Bridge

Once you’re on the train and in control, hold down the accelerator – the train controls are up in the top left corner. As you come up to the bridge, there is a cutscene where you swap to Michael, who is on the boat. The boat only steers when it has rudders in the water and power on, making it essential to hold power while steering.

Once you’re through the bridge, head towards the yellow container and throw a sticky bomb at it. The explosion will trigger a swap back to Trevor. Use the RPG to take out a couple of boats pretty early on. Be careful to aim for the right spot with the RPG. Otherwise, it could end poorly. Don’t waste ammo with the wrong angle.

Taking out Snipers and Helicopters

Next, use a heavy assault rifle to take out the remaining enemies, and switch to the RPG to shoot down the second chopper. After getting rid of the first set of helis, grab a sniper rifle and switch to night vision to take out the snipers on the bridge. Be wary of your remaining sniper rifle ammo. You should finish them off using the assault rifle.

Once you’ve taken out the snipers, prepare yourself for the next set of enemies, Maryweather. Use the night vision scope to easily target the enemies on parachutes. Be sure to take out the pilot to make things easier. After the enemies are dead, head to the yellow marker and swap back to Michael, who is on the boat.

The Final Stretch

Once you’re on the boat, swap back to Trevor immediately and pick up the gun to hold off the helicopters. Use the same tactics as before to take down the helicopters. As soon as they’re down, head towards the cars, and jump into the one marked by yellow. This action will prompt a cutscene that will end the mission, and you’ll get a gold medal if you complete it in under 11 minutes and 30 seconds.

Bonus Tips

Here are some bonus tips for finishing the mission in one go:

  • Slow down a little as you approach the train to make it easier to make the jump the first time.
  • Stay close to the train, and you can go flat out without any fear for Trevor going any further off the rails.
  • Stick with Trevor for the final stretch as it is easier to handle than Michael.

With these tips and tricks, you can easily get gold in GTA 5 Derailed mission. Give it a shot and see how fast you can complete it.

first time before we dive in if you’re new to the channel we do how-to guides
news and giveaways so consider subscribing and ringing the bell to stay up to date
getting gold in this one is pretty straightforward as long as you’re reasonable with the sticky bomb
to get gold we’ll need to reach top speed on the bike land on the train first go complete
the mission in 11 minutes and 30 seconds and before you get started on this mission i
highly recommend grabbing some body armor some explosives and sniper ammunition
right so we’ll just pick it up as we take control of trevor there we go we’ll jump on the bike
i’m not sure i’ve got army here so let’s go for a quick zip down to the hospital and pick some up
there we go now i know we’re on a time limit but the extra 30 seconds taken here could mean the
difference between life and death for trevor later so it’s time saved jump back on the bike wait for
the helmet safety first okay and now we just need to follow the gps or at least where the gps kind
of wants us to go all the way to the rendezvous with the train so the first thing we need to worry
about is getting the bike up to the top speed so we can do that while we’re on the blacktop
simply by pushing forward to lean forward on the bike and really really get that going as
quickly as possible okay i think we’ve probably topped out the sanchez so now it’s just a case of
rendezvousing with the train now we have the highway coming up here so do be careful as you
cross the road there’s no looking both ways but being collected by a car will certainly
slow trevor down and won’t be good for later on when we need that uh top health and top
armor all right so we can see the train there we can see the path on the right hand side so just
head up that one get over on the right hand side and uh yank that throttle
there we go so we can move up alongside of the train you don’t have to be alongside of it you
can be behind it we’ll just head up this side road first line ourselves up carefully and there we go
so now we keep on the train i highly recommend going flat out makes it a bit easier
just make sure we keep the bike a bit steady there because it’s really easy to come off especially
around some of these bends all right so we have the engine coming up there as soon as we hit
that we’ll get a cut scene there we go skip that and we’ve got the train controls up the top left
there so just yank on that accelerator and keep it held all the way down the whole time we’re going
all right so we’re coming up on the station we should see mary with on the right i suspect
there they are they ain’t happy okay so again just keep the accelerator on until the next cutscene
alright so auto swap to michael
we want to head for the bridge now we are in the open ocean and this particular craft
only steers when it’s got rudders in the water and power on so do bear that in mind you can’t
just slow down and turn you got to be under power to make it turn so once we’re through the bridge
there you can see the sea settled down we’ll just see this crash there and skip the cutscene again
pull up to the yellow container there and throw a sticky bomb at it just back
yourself up if you’re a bit closer once that goes off we’ll auto swap to trevor
and i like to start with the rpg here that lets us sort out a couple of the couple of
the enemies pretty early on so we’ve got a couple of boats coming try and peg those as quickly as
possible but make sure you’ve got a plum shot so you’re not wasting ammo and yeah they’re
behind there and you can’t shoot through those twigs uh with the rpg otherwise it ends poorly
all right we’ll just uh take care of these guys with a heavy uh assault rifle
that chopper will just sit there nicely ready for a shot so i have tim lined up swap back
to the assault rifle and sort out anyone else that’s remaining no i think we’re good golden
alright next thing is the second chopper there so rpg again that wasn’t a great shot
how did i miss that right third time’s the charm here we go got him next thing will
probably be the snipers so grab that okay and then into the night vision scope
and you can see there i think there’s four or five of them so that’s him sorted him
done and i think there’s one more there there we go okay that’s them and now we have merryweather
so we’ve got uh fellas coming in on the parachute there so same thing again i find the night vision
is a way to go that’s nice and easy so start by sorting out these fellas on the shoots
that’s them all right and then we want to take out the pilot here there we go done and dusted
okay just been prompted by michael that we’re okay so into the drink and over to the boat
swim up make sure you don’t get clobbered like that because it is really really easy
you’re fighting the current here too so do be careful not to spend too much time in the water
jump into the boat sit down and then michael will take off now we’ll be prompted to swap
to michael in a few moments we’re just going to do that for a second
okay swap to michael and then immediately swap back to trevor and get on that gun all right
now again this is the same as the helicopters or any land vehicles you just want to take out
the pilot as quickly as you can and that’ll slow them right down now fortunately there is
no real accuracy requirement for this one so you can just go nuts hold that on do a spray and pray
and away you go all right that’s them sorted okay i think that’s both of the boats and the car
i reckon we’ve got one or two more coming though let’s see what happens
here we go and uh aim for the pilot and that’s him sorted in half a second and i suspect we’re
clear there now one of the other reasons i typically like to use trevor here is because
i’m not really good on the on the water so i find that i’ll beach myself every now and then
if i use michael so sticking with trevor is a lot easier until it auto swaps us once we’re
out in the clear and that’s fine right so you can see the yellow marker on the left we just want to
stick relatively close to the shore here so that we don’t end up out in the chop go around the head
and aim for that yellow marker there you can see the vehicles on the left-hand side so
pull yourself out a little and then just point straight at the cars go absolutely flat out
and the bottle beach itself jump out as soon as you can
run to the cars and skip the cutscene
all right so auto swap back to trevor and that should be gold we’ll just wait for that to come up
there we are brilliant so squeaked it in with the time we actually stormed it with the time
nearly two minutes left got the hundred percent there on the sanchez and better than cj which is
the train first time so thanks for hanging about until the end here are my top tips on how to get
through this one first go slow it down a little as you approach the train to make it easier to make
the jump first time and you can go absolutely flat out with the train without fear of trevor
going any further off the rails than he already is so what are your thoughts do you have any
