How to Get Gold in Grand Theft Auto 5’s Fifth Mission: Father/Son

If you’re an avid Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 5 player, you’ll know that the game is a massive open-world adventure between GTA 5 and the constant updates from Rockstar for GTA Online. There are endless possibilities and new content to discover with every gameplay. In this continuing series, we will take a look at how to get gold in every damn mission in GTA 5.

In this video, we will focus on the fifth mission, Father/Son. We will catch Jimmy in no time and learn about scratch-free driving. If you’re new to our channel, we do gaming news, giveaways, and how-to guides, so consider subscribing, and ringing the bell to stay up to date with all our content.

GTA 5 Father/Son: The Mission

In this mission, we need to catch Jimmy in less than 10 seconds when he’s hanging off the mast, and we must return Amanda’s car completely unscathed to get gold.

After Jimmy advises you of his dubious business decision, Amanda’s car is conveniently parked on the right. Jump straight in as Michael, as we don’t have Franklin’s ability this time around.

Following the Yacht

The yacht will cross our path, so just follow the GPS, and as we make our way around the big sweeping lifts, we’ll see the yacht drive past. Don’t drive too hard here since it’s a scripted event, and there’s nothing you can do about it. Your focus should be to avoid traffic.

Once Franklin starts climbing up, pull up as close as you can. When you’re not in control of the vehicle, it might take a second to pull up again. Line up behind the yacht and take out the first and the next clown. Line up behind the yacht again, and as soon as we can, pull up to the left, making sure to avoid trucks.

Catching Jimmy

We have ten seconds on the clock to catch Jimmy. When Jimmy jumps, you need to position your vehicle under him at the right spot and avoid hitting anything. Jimmy will manage to defy the laws of physics now and then get in, and we’ll move to the next part of the mission.

Watch out for flying debris, and as soon as you can, line back up behind the yacht to get Franklin back in the car. You don’t have to be bang on, just get close enough to the yacht, and Franklin will jump on Amanda’s car defying the laws of physics again.

The car will start coughing, and unfortunately, we’ll learn that it’s throwing a bottom end bearing. Franklin lets us know that he has a contact at the LSC, a new feature that will unlock on the GPS.

Repair at Los Santos Customs

Drive straight to Los Santos Customs to get the car repaired. Don’t worry about damage to the car. We’ll have plenty of money coming to us later down the track. Keep an eye on the top left corner for prompts on what you can and can’t do at the customs. Here all we need to do is get the car repaired.

Once the car is repaired, we’ll make our way back home gently, avoiding traffic and any kind of hits. Since we now have Franklin’s ability to use, we can use it in case we get into a tight spot. And that’s a wrap for the mission.

GTA 5 Father/Son: Bonus Tips on Shooting from Vehicles

While you’re learning how to shoot from a vehicle, it can be made slightly easier by lining up the car, so you can drive in a straight line for a few moments in the mission. Close enough is good enough for shooting and watch out for falling debris.

In conclusion, GTA 5’s Father/Son mission can be summed up as a fast, thrilling ride, and the goal is to catch Jimmy in under ten seconds and deliver Amanda’s car unscathed. Use Franklin’s ability to help you get out of tight spots, and follow the GPS prompts to get your car repaired at the LSC. With these tips, you’ll master the mission and progress to the next level.

to get gold in this mission we’ll need to catch jimmy in less than 10 seconds
when he’s hanging off the mast and we’ll need to return amanda’s car
completely unscathed so let’s get into the action
after jimmy advises you of his dubious business decision you can hang
up the phone and amanda’s car is just there on the right
so run over and jump straight in conveniently enough the top is already
down and michael michael’s car is nowhere to be seen
now remember we’re driving is michael so we don’t have franklin’s ability this
time around and pressing the activate button doesn’t do
much except get you in the way of a prank
so follow the gps to where the yacht is and as we make our way around the big
sweeping lifts we’ll see the yacht drive past
and we can just sneak up behind it now don’t go too hard here you won’t be
able to catch up because the yacht is a scripted event there’s not much you
can do about it knocking out the cars you can’t catch up any faster than the
game is going to let you so sit back a little bit take it easy
and just avoid traffic once franklin starts climbing up
pull up as close as you can there’ll be a moment when you’re not in control of
the vehicle so it might take a second just to pull up again
line up behind the yacht and when you can take out the
first clown and near enough is good enough
take out the next idiot and then line up behind the yacht
we need to pull up to the left as soon as we can just making sure to avoid the
trucks and we are on a timeline here so it is important that you do
not hit anything we’ve got 10 seconds to catch jimmy to get gold
but you don’t need much of a uh a line up there you can see jimmy managed to
defy the laws of physics to to get in after we had
just positioned ourselves under the right spot for half a second
okay so with that done it’s time to go and get franklin so
watch out for flying debris
and then as soon as you can line back up behind the yacht and franklin will
jump on amanda’s car again physics defying you just need to get close
enough you don’t have to be absolutely bang on
and now that franklin’s back in the car we can actually hear the car starting to
cough and spotter that is it throwing a bottom end bearing and mikey
michael being quite upset about it at this point is
where franklin lets us know that he has a
contact lsc and it becomes a new unlocked feature
and you’ll see it pop up on the gps there
so just drive straight to los santos customs
doesn’t matter about damage to the car if you bump into traffic on the way
because it’s all about to get repaired anyway as we make our
way in we get some more exposition taxis are unlocked
michael jumps out of the car and we take control of the car as
franklin all right once the exposition is done
we can drive straight into lsc keep an eye on the top left for prompts
on what you can and can’t do at los santos customs this is important for
gameplay aspects a little bit later on all we need to do here is just get the
car repaired no point spending any extra money on
amanda’s car we’ve got plenty of money coming to us
later on down the track so as soon as the repair is done
we just drive home quite gingerly we need to avoid traffic and avoid any
kind of knock or driving into anything however we do
now have franklin’s ability to use so if we get
into a tight spot we can absolutely get out of it using that and pro tip as
well if you give amanda’s car a bit of a
knock on the way home that’s okay you can go to any los santos customs or
the old pay and sprays if you’re used to the older versions of gta
and get the car repaired fairly cheaply so that you can still complete the
mission with gold and that about wraps it up
