GTA 5 Fresh Meat Mission Guide for Gold Status

If you’re looking for a quick and easy guide to getting gold in the GTA 5 mission Fresh Meat, then you’ve come to the right place. In this video, Old Grumpy Gamer walks you through the steps necessary to achieve gold status in this exciting mission.


In this video, we’ll be looking at how to get gold in the Fresh Meat mission in Grand Theft Auto 5. Before we dive in, make sure that Franklin has full body armor, shotgun shells, and ammunition for the machine gun.

Goal for Gold Status

Our goal for getting gold in this mission is to avoid setting a map marker, reach the facility in less than 3 minutes and 30 seconds, kill 10 enemies with headshots, limit character switching, and finish with an accuracy of 70 or better.

Getting Started

Once you have control of Franklin, head over to the car and Lester will brief you on the tracking app. After the briefing, the game will auto-swap to Michael, and there’s no time limit on this one, so you can take your time and go through the entire cutscene if you like.

Getting to the Meat Market

Once you’re back in control of Franklin, pull up the tracking app and head towards the meat market. It’s important to note that we shouldn’t use a map marker, so we need to make our way there without any assistance from the app.

Once you arrive at the meat market, quickly take cover and sort out the enemies with headshots. This is crucial to achieving gold status, so take your time and make sure you get those headshots.

Using Cover and Progressing Quickly

As you progress through the mission, it’s important to use cover and progress quickly, but you don’t want to rush through the mission and get yourself killed. Use the map to keep track of enemies and be mindful of your accuracy, which needs to be at 70 or better to get gold status.

Michael’s Automatic and Ability

Once you swap to Michael, use his ability to take out enemies quickly and efficiently. He also has an automatic weapon at this point, so if you find that’s easier to use, go for it. But remember to stay accurate if you want to achieve gold status.

Getaway and Completion

Once you’ve completed the mission and obtained the car, you need to outrun the enemies, but shooting them is also an option. You can also use the GPS to guide you back to Michael’s place, which is where you need to complete the mission to achieve gold status.


Overall, the Fresh Meat mission in GTA 5 is a lot of fun, but it can be frustrating if you don’t know what you’re doing. By following the steps outlined in this guide, you should be able to achieve gold status and enjoy all that this mission has to offer.

that franklin has full body armor shotgun shells and ammunition for the machine gun to get gold in
this one we’ll need to avoid setting a map marker get to the facility in less than 3 minutes and
30 seconds kill 10 enemies with headshots limit character switching and finish with an accuracy
of 70 or better great now that we have control of franklin we’ll start wandering over to the car
and lester will get on the other end of the phone there’s a bit of a briefing with the tracking app
all right hang a left and after that’s done the game will auto swap to michael
now there’s no time limit on this one so you can take your time and go through the entire
cutscene if you like we get to know a little bit more about mr chang and what he thinks
trevor and michael have been up to he hasn’t quite got the right idea but that’s okay
we’ll uh we’ll sort it out anyway all right so again we can now swap back to franklin
there we go we should just be up the road so we can pull up the tracking app
so we’ve turned right just do a quick u-turn because we should have turned left there so where
we’re heading is to the the meat market we’ll just bring up a map so you can see where that is
but what we want to make sure we do is don’t use a map marker we just need to make our way there
just heading the now we’ll get across the bridge and you can use the little ammunition marker as
a uh waypoint there i’ll hang it right here and it’s just about halfway up here on the
left you can see the gap there so we’ll pull in jump out and quickly sort out these fellas
so that’s a couple of head shots down take some cover here and there’ll be
a few that come in there’s always one guy to the left there so just keep an eye out for him
the main thing we’re doing here is just looking at the map to see where the enemies are we need
to progress quickly but we also don’t want to go through it and get ourselves killed
med kit there sort this fella out there’s another couple there
and shotgun has got a good bit of range so that does make it
a bit easier with this one rather than using the rifles or a regular sidearm
and make sure we’re using a lot of cover here as well because they are all over the place
there’s one behind the barrels there and then just a couple more so one will barrel down the stairs
and then a few off to the right so a bit more cover there up top there we go oh and one up there
let’s get into a better spot and there we go
there we go all right we can see michael off to the side there so we need to just sort these
fellas out this is a bit gruesome but uh a bit of fun anyway all right so auto swap to michael
and then we just want to take out a few of these guys too now don’t forget about
michael’s ability here and the fellas that will pop up off to the left in a few moments there too
there we go all right now a couple of guys off to the left here
that’s them sorted
so auto swap back to franklin and push forward again just making sure we have the shotgun on hand
all right and there should be a little cut scene here there we go so we will swap back to michael
and drop into his ability and we can just egg that fella there we go that’s him sorted
i can’t imagine how much that would have hurt we’ll stick with michael just for
the moment because we don’t want to swap too many more times if we can avoid it
and make our way back up to franklin and then hang a left and make our way to the yellow marker
just a few more left in here
and if you get stuck using michael’s abilities really really handy if you’ve
charged it back up again grab some cover
we just want to head down that hallway when we can now michael does have an automatic on him
at this point as well he’s picked some up so if you find that’s a bit easier to use that’s great
but we also do need to bear in mind we need to hit that 70 accuracy so you need to be a bit
careful in lining up your shots to make sure that you hit the first time rather than wasting shots
next one round to the left and then just grab the car
now we need to try and outrun these guys if we can you can also stop and shoot them which is
neat but ultimately you can outrun them pretty easily too and if we can stay on
the gps as much as possible as well which will take us back i think to michael’s place
we’ll just sneak into this car park and see if we can’t hide from him
and we’ll just duck off here i don’t think this is going to make the stunt
jump but that’s all right it’s a heck of a visual anyway which appears to go on forever
there we go we’ll borrow this vehicle next
nice so the police impound a lot to keep it for us and i suspect we’ve lost them oh no here they come
these guys are persistent
and i think that’s them sorted so we’ll have a little bit of dialogue
between franklin and michael and we will make our way back to the gps endpoint
so michael’s place is just up on the right here we shall
drop him off and there’s a bit more of an exchange and then that will be the end of it
and that’s gold so i managed to get the 10 out of 10 head shots
and the accuracy was pretty good there too so what are your thoughts do you have any
tips for other viewers or could this have been done differently leave your comment down below
