How to Get Gold in GTA 5 Mission “I Fought the Law”

In this video, we will be walking you through how to get gold in the Grand Theft Auto 5 mission, “I Fought the Law.” Join us in our continuing series of getting gold in every mission in GTA 5.

First, we recommend maxing out Franklin’s driving stat and focus ability, as it will be useful in getting through certain parts of the mission. To get gold, you must slip between two trucks, sneak between two buses, use Franklin’s ability during the race, follow Trevor through the tunnel, and complete the whole mission in under 12 minutes. Stick to the GPS and don’t let the car come unstuck too much as it may affect your time completion.

Once you get to the garage, you’ll take control of Franklin and jump into the Ocelot. Follow the GPS to the garage and make sure the car doesn’t come unstuck too much. Take it slow and steady so the car can compete against the supercars. When you reach the cutscene, skip it as soon as possible and start the mission.

The temptation in this part of the mission is to try and get out in front of the two cars, but it’s a bit challenging to get in front of them, and you won’t know where you’re going. To achieve your goals, move in between the two buses and two trucks and use Franklin’s ability when necessary. Keeping up with the other cars is essential, so avoid swerving as much as possible.

Once you complete this part, you’ll switch to Michael, and the challenge now is lane splitting. Keep your movements pretty lean and avoid traffic. Follow Trevor through the tunnel and take small movements to avoid swerving. Consequently, you can use Michael’s speed to catch up with the other cars quickly.

Keep your movements as small as possible and avoid swerving. Watch out for the bikers and follow the other cars closely. Sticking to the center medium is critical, as you don’t know what may run in front of you. If you lose it, you’ll also lose the race and, of course, your goal.

Once you reach Devon’s second industrial workshop, you want to use Franklin’s ability to make sure you stay ahead of the competition. Keep an eye out for traffic and avoid the other cars from catching up. Slow down when necessary and avoid crashing. Doing this correctly will ensure that you beat the other boys, and you get gold in the mission.


Getting gold in every mission in Grand Theft Auto 5 may be challenging, but it’s not impossible. With this guide, you should have no problems obtaining gold in the “I Fought the Law” mission. Remember, take it slow and steady, use the characters’ unique abilities, and avoid traffic as much as possible. Good luck!

getting gold in this mission is a lot of fun as we get our first official go on a supercar
and really get to stretch its legs on the highway if you’ve not done so already i
also highly recommend spending some time maxing out franklin’s driving stat and focus ability
as it will really help you when you inevitably become unstuck on the highway
to get gold in this one we’ll need to slip between the two trucks sneak between the two buses use
franklin’s ability during the race follow trevor through the tunnel and complete the whole mission
in under 12 minutes as usual we’re on a timeline so let’s skip the cutscene and get right to it
great so we’ve taken control of franklin we’ll just jump in the ocelot and take off now it really
is just for this part a case of following the gps to the garage and making sure the car doesn’t come
unstuck too much so that it arrives in reasonable nick and can compete against the supercars
okay so we’ve got the garage coming into view on the left here so we’ll just take the exit ramp
pull up it’s a bit slow and then we’ll hit that cut scene so
as soon as we possibly can we’ll skip that one
and we’re off now the temptation here is to try and get out in front of these two cars
firstly it is a little bit challenging to get in front of the lead car secondly if you do that you
won’t know where you’re going so even if you can get in front of the orange car which stays
in the lead the whole time then you kind of stuck anyway so right so we have those two buses coming
up so we’ll just oh that was a truck sorry so in between those that’s one of the achievements done
and now we just need to keep up for a while now
you’ll notice the other cars swerving wildly we want to try and avoid that as much as we can
and if we do find ourselves getting a little bit caught we can use franklin’s ability okay so
bus is next that sat down and franklin’s ability achievement dealt with okay so now we just get to
enjoy the ride really we can sit behind the lead cars here try and not come too unstuck like that
until it’s time to swap to michael so enjoy the ride try and practice a bit uh use franklin’s
ability but not too much because we need to keep some of the tank for the next part
okay so calling michael so that means we will swap to him in a few moments there we go chuck’s the
donut after taking a bite i love that little touch by rockstar it’s just hilarious okay and we’re out
as michael now so the trick here is lane splitting trying to keep your movements pretty lean
and keeping out of traffic now trevor should duck over to the left here all right we need to
follow him there we go so once we get through the tunnel and you’ll notice i’m sticking to the
edge here and just out of traffic so through the tunnel and that’s that achievement done as well
so small movements as much as you can try and stay out of traffic and yep that’s not ideal
now you can come off the bike once without failing the mission and still get gold so there’s no
problems there wouldn’t want to do it anymore and certainly wouldn’t want to slow down too much now
there is some rubber banding here so trevor and the boys will slow right down until you catch up
you can catch up a bit quicker by pushing forward on the stick to lean forward and get that rolling
so we can see trevor in the distance there as soon as we catch up he’ll find a burst of speed
and there he goes matches our speed straight away that is some classic
rubber banding great so we can see franklin and the ocelot weaving and ducking and that
is really handy to see so we can see which way we’re going move into the middle lane here
there are often cars that will pull out and sometimes in the more rural parts you’ll there is
you’ll see some wildlife as well which can really be upsetting for michael all right
again keeping small movements and corrections rather than swerving all over the road like trevor
watch out for the bikers here they are pretty much always there there we go and again sticking
in the center so you’ll see these guys now taking lines across the traffic and you can
follow those through to keep up where they hang out to the left you can follow them to the left
pretty safe in the knowledge that you’re not going to collect anything on the way through
so we’re coming up on the bridge so that means that’ll be the end of this spot and
we’ll cut to a new cutscene so they’ll start pulling up in just a moment with any luck
there we are oops
and continuity that’s all right okay so we are set as michael there in the supercar we want to just
jump straight back to franklin there’ll be a quick call to the executive assistant i believe it is
and just using franklin’s ability there to make sure that we’ve got both races covered
and now we just need to get back to devon’s second warehouse the the budget one or the the hidden one
without the car coming unstuck too much and while staying in front of trevor and michael
the whole way which is fairly easy if you’ve taken the time to max out franklin’s stats so
again small corrections where you can go as quick as you can without going utterly nuts
and keep an eye out for traffic remember slowing down is better than crashing
okay so we’re just exiting the highway now hang a quick right here using franklin’s ability to
wipe off some speed where we need to and pick up the pace in other spots so just get around here
and the trick here is to make sure you try and avoid as much traffic as possible not just so
you don’t crash but because there is a lot of rubber banding going on with michael and
travelling and if you lose it then you’ll lose the race and of course lose your goal
so just slow it down a touch and get around this corner
and you’re left here and then right up the top and we’re in the industrial part of
los santos here and devon’s second little hidden workshop should be on the right there
big open gate after the green fence there it is so we’ve beaten the the other two boys
there’s a cut scene here a few seconds and then we can skip it there we go and we swap
back to michael automatically and that is gold so absolutely smashed it with the time as well
as hitting all of those achievements so that is fantastic so thanks for watching to the end here
are my top tips on how to get through this one first time gta’s documentation doesn’t state which
race to use franklin’s ability the one against the supercars or the one back to the shop you
can cover yourself by using the focus ability in both lane split as much as possible with michael
and stay in the center medium where possible you never know what might run out of in front of you
and save as much of franklin’s ability as you can for the drive back to the shop
to give you the edge over the other boys so what are your thoughts do you have any tips
for the viewers or could this have been done differently leave your comment down
below and check out the video on the left for mr richards or the one on the right for some
