Grand Theft Auto V is a massive game with no shortage of content and interesting things to do. In this continuing series, we’ll take a look at the Hood Safari mission where we’ll visit CJ’s old neighborhood, the infamous Grove Street. So, join us as we go through how to get gold in this mission and escape with Lamar.

Mission Summary

The mission starts with Franklin joining Lamar, Chop, and Trevor to head back to Grove Street. You will defeat several waves of enemies, sneak past the cops, and escape with Lamar to obtain gold. To get gold, you need to kill 12 enemies with headshots, finish with an accuracy of 70, and complete the mission in under seven minutes.

Walkthrough: Getting Gold in Hood Safari

First, grab some body armor, explosives, and ammo to help you tackle the waves of enemies that come your way. Start by lighting up the enemies using body shots, but remember that you need to kill at least 12 enemies with headshots for gold. Take the extra moment to take headshots wherever possible.

During the shooting, watch out for Trevor, who has a habit of standing right in the line of fire. Take cover and swap weapons as per the situation. You’ll also encounter a few waves of enemy cars; ensure to make headshots before taking them out.

The mission has a time limit; hence, you’ll need to progress quickly. Long guns and rifles are handy for hitting those long-range shots. After defeating the waves of enemies, you’ll need to escape from the cops with Lamar.

Borrow the conveniently placed jet skis and try to lose the cops as quickly as possible. You can speed up by pushing forward on the flat ground. Avoid spraying bullets and focus on making one bullet count at a time.

If cops come in sight, try to eliminate them as quickly as possible. Stay under the bridge to avoid the police helicopter’s spotlight and head towards the port area, which is easy to evade the police.

After losing the cops, head back towards Grove Street to finish the mission. Ensure you complete the mission in under seven minutes to obtain gold.

Bonus Tips

Here are a few tips to help you get through this mission on your first attempt and obtain gold:

  • Avoid using the spray and pray approach to shooting. Shoot for the body and only shoot one bullet at a time if an automatic weapon is not required.
  • If it’s not practical to grab cover, keep moving side to side to make yourself harder to hit.
  • Explosives are your friend; use them wisely.

If you follow the tips and methods mentioned in the walkthrough, you will obtain gold quickly and easily in Hood Safari.

waves of enemies that come in hot and lamar has a habit of standing right in the line of fire i also
highly recommend you take a minute to grab some body armor some explosives and stocking up on ammo
to get gold in this one we’ll need to kill 12 enemies with headshots finish with an accuracy
of 70 and complete the mission in under seven minutes radio we’re on a timeline so let’s dive
right on in okay so we have taken control of franklin we’ll just jump straight in the van
wait for chop and trev to load up it’s a lovely evening here at the moment and it really is just a
case of having a listen to some of the exposition and following the directions back to grove street
it’s a fairly quick trip so that’s not too bad and occasionally you can see
cyclists coming through there they are that is alleged to be some of cj’s old
boys we’ll see what happens all right so we’ve driven up there and there’s cj’s old
house looking a little worse for wear if i’m honest so head on over to the marker
lamar will do his thing we’ll just uh skip the cutscene there and dive right into the action
so start by lighting up as many as you can body shots when they need to be taken care of quickly
otherwise take the extra moment to get that head shot remember we do need to kill
at least 12 enemies with headshots all right so we’ll advance here
there we go that’s him sorted and do watch out for trevor he does get in the line of sight here
a little bit but he’s otherwise fairly useful all right so the first wave’s just about done
we’ve got a couple of cars coming up and again taking the extra time to make those head shots
swap out to trevor we’ve got rampage there and we also have the shotgun and the autos which
is really handy so again making sure we take that extra moment just to get the accuracy up
we got him there he is okay so advancing again as soon as you can remember we are on a time limit
and the long guns and the rifles are really handy for hitting those arranged shots all right here
comes the next one so i’ll take some cover and that’ll sort him out okay so back to the automatic
franklin’s looking a little dazed but he’ll be fine all right that seems to have cleared
the rest of this wave so now we just have to wait for the next what’s an idiot right
okay so that is the next wave franklin will put himself out in a moment we’ll be right
lamar standing in the middle of the street which never helps yeah he’s alive all right great okay
so there’s a couple of thugs that’ll sneak around to the right and again labar getting in the way
sneak around to the right then it’s the police to take care of so we just want to swap to franklin
here we’ll just scoot down the side street and borrow these conveniently placed jet skis
now the first part wasn’t too bad the next bit’s where it gets hairy because we need to lose the
cops in a hurry now she’s not getting off okay and off we go okay so we have that warrant and it’s a
bit challenging to get rid of these guys sometimes so just try and light these fellas up if we can
oh and there she goes and that’s him sorted right police helicopter there not a lot we
can do about them just uh stick to the side and try and stay out of their uh their lights
all right now remember you can speed up the jet ski on flat ground by just pushing forward as well
okay so staying under the bridge to try and stand out the line of sight of that chopper
and heading through the next part of the bay and
not far off open water to be honest so we’ll see how we go there
looks like the chop is still on our backside all right so the temptation is to head over to
the left to the beach there but instead we’re going to go to the rice and come up closer to
the docks where it’s a little bit easier to evade the police because we don’t have to deal with sand
and also they aren’t over this side they’ve stuck largely to the other side there so you can see
we’re flashing we’ve already lost them and it’s just a case now staying out of the line of sight
yeah i can’t see them
all anywhere so we just need to wait out that warrant might get out into open water yeah now
definitely not chasing us they have lost us all together and what a lovely evening it is too
all right coming back on the lights of the port area and the airport and there goes the warrant
and that is gold absolutely stormed it in with a time nearly 80 accuracy so absolutely smashed
it in so thanks for watching to the end here are my top tips on how to get through this one
first go avoid using the spray and pray approach to shooting even if you choose an automatic
weapon shoot for the body and try to only shoot one bullet at a time if it’s not practical to
grab cover keep moving side to side so you’re harder to hit and explosives are your friend
