How to Get Gold in the GTA 5 Mission Meltdown

In this video, we join Dan from Old Grumpy Gamer as he shows us how to get gold in the Grand Theft Auto 5 mission Meltdown. GTA 5 is a massive game with tons of new content and interesting things to do with constant updates from Rockstar for GTA Online. Dan and his viewers undertake the challenge of getting gold in every damn mission in GTA 5.

Getting gold in this mission is pretty straightforward. To achieve it, you just need to make sure Michael has body armor before starting, reach the top speed in any vehicle, kill the hostage takers with headshots, kill twelve enemies with headshots and complete the whole mission in less than 6 minutes and 30 seconds. Let’s dive in and see how we can make that happen!

Picking up the Tuxedo

The first step is picking up the tuxedo from Ponsonby’s. Simply head straight over, pick a tuxedo, and then skip the cut scenes. Jimmy will be there with the limo already waiting for you.

Reaching the Premiere

Once you enter the limo, watch out for any pedestrians blocking your way and drive towards the Laszlo’s location in front of the entrance to the cinema. Skip the cut scene and exit the limo.

Getting to Top Speed

You can find a quick car parked immediately behind the limo, alternatively, you can grab a bike as it is easier to reach top speed on bikes than in cars. Wait for Jimmy to get in and then push forward on your stick to ensure that you are getting the absolute most out of that bike, even if it’s just for a couple of seconds.

Sniper Rifle and Hostage Makers

Use the sniper rifle to take out the first hostage maker before heading upstairs and then taking out Tracy’s kidnappers. This step is just like a normal heist, so take out as many enemies as possible using Michael’s ability while sustaining the minimum amount of damage. Use his ability to take headshots as not only do we have to clock up the head shots, but it is also the quickest way to get rid of the hostage takers.

Tier One Operator Token

Once you’ve saved Tracy and Amanda, you should have already achieved the Tier One Operator token. If you’re anything like Dan or his viewers, you may have failed this mission a few times while trying to get gold. In such a case, the game will sometimes double its efforts, and pop in some extra enemies to keep you on your toes, but as long as you follow the same tactics, you should be able to get gold on this mission in no time.

In conclusion, getting a gold medal in the GTA 5 mission Meltdown is not rocket science. You just need to be quick, precise, and take advantage of Michael’s ability.

hi in this video we’re going through how to get gold in the GTA 5 mission
meltdown Amanda will be fashionably late
Hi and welcome back my name’s Dan and i’m an old grumpy gamer grand theft auto is a truly massive
game between gta 5 and the constant updates from rockstar for gta online there’s no shortage of new
content and interesting things to do join me then in our continuing series getting gold in every
damn mission in gta 5 as we look at the grand theft auto mission meltdown before we dive in if
you’re new to the channel we do how-to guides news and giveaways so consider subscribing and ringing
the bell to stay up to date getting gold in this one is pretty straightforward we just need to make
sure michael has body armor before starting to get gold in this we’ll need to reach the
top speed in any vehicle kill the hostage takers with head shots kill 12 enemies with headshots and
complete the whole mission in less than 6 minutes and 30 seconds so let’s pick it up from ponsonby’s
where we’ll go and collect our attacks so just head straight over pick a tuxedo and then skip
the cut scenes and jimmy will be there with the limo so we need to just jump straight in
now there’s a lot of exposition here so you can keep the sound up although it’s jimmy so it is
genuinely annoying skip the cutscene and that should drop us straight at the premiere so
we’ll jump straight back out of the limo watch out for this fella here on the left
and then head towards laszlo in front of the entrance to the cinema
skip this cut scene as soon as we can as well there we go and then go for a quick
run now there’s always a fairly quick car parked immediately behind the limo so we’ll grab that one
wait for jimmy to get in
and the first thing we need to do is try and hit top speed which is a bit challenging with
the cars so let’s see if we can find something a little bit quicker or perhaps something with two
wheels around the place so we are going absolutely flat out hopefully that’ll top it out but let’s
see how we go oh that’s not helpful oh there’s a bike there though so let’s just quickly grab that
a lot easier to get to top speed on those than it is to get top speed in a car wait for jimmy
and then mono to start with and then push forward on your stick to make sure that you are getting
the absolute most out of that bike even if it’s just for a couple of seconds there we go
all right up the driveway all right let’s go
and into the sniper rifle there we go so that’s one
and we need to head upstairs and then take out tracy’s hostage maker there
got him great so that’s the first one done with the hostage takers the rest of them is just a
case of pretending it’s a normal heist and taking out as many as you can using michael’s ability
while sustaining the least amount of damage there’s always a smoke grenade there that’s
okay we’ll just wait for them to come through and again poor visibility means
we use the reticle to tell us when we’ve got a shot rather than waiting for the smoke to
clear all right so keeping a really good eye on that mini map so that’ll give us
a clue as to where people are there’s another couple coming through here so
one two i think we missed that guy there we go
and there’s one here’s another one coming through and he’s hiding behind that wall there so
there he is
i think yep he’s still there cheeky bugger right let’s go
so use michael’s ability as much as possible to really make sure you’ve got a good shot
and to make sure those headshots count because not only do we have to clock up the head shots
but it is categorically the quickest way to get rid of the uh the guys so push through take that
fella out and then down into the driveway there with the convenient lightning to help us out
all right now i think there’s a car coming here so something big and punchy it’s a rocket launcher
there we go that’s them sorted and it should be i think another person up here somewhere
couldn’t see him so we’ll just take him out with the rocket launcher that seems to do the trick
oh no it was a car there we go right that’s them sorted so back into the house upstairs
skip the cutscene again
and that’s it job’s done so absolutely romped it in there with nearly three minutes to spare
got the pedal to the middle at the 105 i suspect that might have been the sports car maybe not the
bike but if you can get a bike they’re a lot easier to get to top speed and the tier one
operator so that is 12 out of the 12 headshots gotten plus amanda and tracy saved with headshots
so what are your thoughts do you have any tips for other viewers or could this be done
differently leave your comment down below and check out the video on the left for the next
storyline mission or the one on the right for some more old grumpy game of goodness
