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.
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.
