How to Get Gold in the GTA 5 Mission Legal Trouble
Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA 5) is a massive game with no shortage of new content and interesting things to do. In this continuing series of getting gold in every damn mission in GTA 5, we look at the Grand Theft Auto mission Legal Trouble. Getting gold in this mission is relatively straightforward, but the time limit can take some of the enjoyment out of the mission. Any serious misstep during the initial rundown can result in going overtime to get gold in this mission.
To get gold in this mission, we need to reach the top speed in any vehicle, use the news helicopter view for at least 15 seconds, escape the police in under two minutes, and complete the whole mission in less than five minutes and 30 seconds. Let’s dive into how to get gold in this mission.
Starting the Mission
Starting from the front of Solomon’s office, we need to skip the first car and head for the Ferrari or the Grotti. It’s essential to keep going absolutely flat out all the way to the market because we are on a limited timeline, and pretty much every time that I failed this mission, it was because I’d misstepped here. We need to keep going absolutely flat out and also be lucky enough to get a clear run.
After passing Maize Bank Arena, we need to watch out for oncoming traffic and road works on the right-hand side, which can slow us down. After rounding the corner, Molly will pop up as a blue marker. We need to take control and head out to the left and grab a couple of seconds by using the news helicopter view. It’s critical to keep relatively smooth to keep the pace up.
Whenever we get onto a straight, we need to swap to the news camera to make sure that we get the time up. We need to watch out for a specific area where we have to head over to the left to ensure that we don’t get clipped. We can speed up the whole process by turning right and pre-empting where we’re going and then hard left around. That forces the game to speed up the other cars, which will save us an extra few seconds.
After lining up on the runway, we need to swap to the news camera as soon as we can and hold it for as long as we can see the car or know where we’re going. After veering off to the left and out of the news camera view, we need to get onto the next runway and into the news camera view again as soon as we can.
Once we get past the warehouse and veer around to the left, the car will auto-stop. We can run after Molly and take her out. Then we take out the cop, head straight for the plane, and then get in and fire up the plane as quickly as we can. We need to avoid as many cars as we can and get the gear up as soon as we’re off the ground.
Getting the Gold
After grabbing some altitude, we’re clear of prying eyes, and we need to keep an eye out for helicopters and police boats. We need to stay out of the police helicopter’s line of sight and bank back around nearly clear of the warrant to get the gold.
Finally, we completed the mission in 5 minutes and 28 seconds, with two seconds to spare for a gold rating. We got to the top speed in the Ferrari and got a quick escape with 1 minute 36 seconds. Additionally, we got 21 seconds from the cinematic view from the chopper. Overall, it’s not too bad.
Getting gold in the GTA 5 mission Legal Trouble is relatively straightforward, but the time limit can take some of the enjoyment out of the mission. It’s important to keep going flat out and be lucky enough to get a clear run. By following this guide, you can get gold in this mission relatively easily.
