Jimmy De Santa loves to prove how much of a f**k-up he is, on a fairly regular basis. This time around, he's attempted to sell his Dad's yacht. Unsurprisingly, this has not gone to plan.

Grand Theft Auto is a truly massive game. Between GTA 5 and the constant updates from Rockstar for GTA Online; there’s no shortage of new content and interesting things to do.

Join me, then, in our continuing series, getting gold in every damn mission, in GTA 5; as we look at Grand Theft Auto Mission 5, Father Son.

…and don’t forget to hang about until the end, so you can catch our bonus tips on shooting from a moving vehicle.

As a child, Franklin often heard stories about how his father was violent and physically abusive towards his mother, possibly causing her to turn to cocaine to escape being abused.

Franklin’s father left his mother while she was still pregnant with Franklin.

His mother’s addiction eventually led to her death when Franklin was a little boy.

After the death of his grandparents, Franklin and his aunt Denise moved into a house on Forum Drive left to them by Franklin’s grandmother in her will.

A few months before the start of his story, Franklin moved beyond the role of ghetto-based street dealer when he and Lamar began working for Armenian businessman Simeon Yetarian.

Michael De Santa, formerly Michael Townley, is one of the three protagonists in Grand Theft Auto V, along with Franklin Clinton and Trevor Philips.

Now a family man, Michael began to question his criminal lifestyle, much to Trevor’s annoyance, describing him as being “Soft.” A few years later, Trevor met a fellow crook named Brad Snider and introduced him to Michael.

According to Trevor, Brad planned at one point to cut off Michael and work solely with Trevor.

Michael made a clandestine agreement with the FIB to cut ties with Trevor and Brad in exchange for government protection.

By accepting the deal with the FIB, Michael informed Norton of their upcoming robbery in Ludendorff, where Michael will pretend to be shot by Norton, while Norton would actually kill Trevor and arrest Brad. The plan would favor both Michael and Norton, whereas Michael will walk away with a clean slate, Norton would be given a career boost for taking down the supposed “Most Wanted Man in America”.

Jimmy is the son of Michael and Amanda, and the younger brother of Tracey. He was put into the Witness Protection Program with his family in 2004 after his father Michael faked his death during a failed heist in Ludendorff, North Yankton.

Jimmy is first introduced at the end of the Franklin and Lamar mission where he purchases a yellow BeeJay XL SUV from Simeon Yetarian’s dealership. Later during the same mission, “Complications,” he is heard playing a first-person shooter game when Franklin breaks into Michael De Santa’s home to repossess the BeeJay XL that Jimmy bought earlier.

In the mission Father/Son Jimmy calls his father to inform him that the family Marquis yacht has been stolen and he is trapped inside the boat. Jimmy tried to sell the boat for drug money but the “buyers” decided to steal the boat instead. Michael and Franklin race after him in Amanda’s Sentinel after the yacht; which is being transported on a trailer down the freeway. They manage to rescue Jimmy, who was hanging on the boom, but they lose the yacht.

Hi in this video we’ll be taking you through how to get gold in Grand Theft
Auto 5’s fifth mission Father/Son we’ll be catching jimmy in
short order and learning about scratch-free driving
Hi and welcome back my name is Dan and I’m an Old Grumpy Gamer
grand theft auto is a truly massive game between
gta 5 and the constant updates from rockstar for gta online
there’s no shortage of new content and interesting things to do
join me then in our continuing series getting gold
in every damn mission in gta 5 as we take a look at father son
and don’t forget to hang out until the end so you can catch our bonus tips on
shooting from a moving vehicle 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
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

so thanks for watching to the end and here are my pro tips for shooting from
vehicles while you’re learning shooting from a
vehicle 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 um debris
