Grand Theft Auto 5: Getting Gold in the “Something Sensible” Mission
Grand Theft Auto (GTA) 5 is a massive game with no shortage of new content and interesting things to do. In this continuing series of the game, we explore how to get gold in every mission of GTA 5, including the first finale mission, “Something Sensible.”
In this mission, we pay Trevor a visit, but unfortunately, there’s no way around it, we’ll have to kill him to get gold. To do this, we’ll follow a straightforward process of selecting “kill Trevor” on our phone, setting a marker, and then chasing him down using Franklin’s ability.
The Briefing and Set-Up
The mission starts by setting everything up. First, we’ll need to pop up our phone and select “kill Trevor”. After confirming our choice, we’ll give Trevor a call to arrange a meeting, picking somewhere quiet like an empty lot on Elburro on the east side of town. We then set the marker and head straight out.
It’s important to remember to listen to the build-up to the mission. In this case, it’s worth hearing the conversation between Michael and Franklin. Michael explains that the F.I.B. and Devon Weston want Trevor gone – someone has to go. Trevor is straight and true, but Michael doesn’t care about the truth.
The chase is the main part of the mission. We’ll need to follow Trevor and not take any unnecessary risks. The road can be bumpy through the dirt, so we can use Franklin’s ability to make things easier. The chase is scripted, so Trevor won’t get away unless we make silly mistakes.
Once we catch up with him, the situation is intense. Trevor is surrounded by his betrayers, and he knows what’s about to happen. Michael comes in to confront him, and Trevor refuses to back down. Michael shoots him, causing him to suffer a fiery death.
After the chase, there’s a lot of exposition, and it’s all quite sad. Trevor was a complicated character with a tragic end. He admits he’s a bad piece of work, but Michael is worse. His death is unavoidable, but it’s left to the players to determine whether they wanted him to die or not.
The mission ends with Michael telling Franklin that surviving is winning, and everything else is just fairy tales. It’s a somber end to a long game, which isn’t canon, but still full-on.
Tips and Final Thoughts
Getting gold in this mission is straightforward, but it’s also a bit terrible. Killing Trevor is a tough pill to swallow, but it’s what the game requires to get gold. The chase sequence is scripted, so players need to take it easy and follow Trevor without making unnecessary risks.
In general, taking the time to listen to what the characters are saying is essential to getting the most out of this game. The story is a long one, and players get invested in the characters’ lives. It’s up to you to determine the conclusion you want for them, but be prepared for some heavy moments.
