GTA 5 Pack Man: How to Get Gold

In this video, we will be discussing how to get gold in the Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA 5) mission, Pack Man. This is part of our ongoing series where we strive to achieve gold in every mission in the game. We will be showing you how to complete the mission in under 12 minutes, without damaging the JB 700 KO, and by taking out at least three police cars with spikes.


Grand Theft Auto is a massive game, and with the constant updates from Rockstar for GTA online, there is no shortage of new content and exciting things to do. In this video, we will be discussing the mission Pack Man in GTA 5, and how you can get a gold rating on this mission. Our host, Dan, an old grumpy gamer, will take you through the mission, step by step.

Getting Started

To get started, we skip the briefing call with Lamar and steal a car to get to the location where Lamar is hanging out with the last of the vehicles. The car that we borrow will do the job.

Taking Control of the Semi-Trailer

Upon arrival, we jump out of the car and into the semi-trailer to take control. We follow the GPS until we encounter the police. At this point, Franklin will wake up and climb out of the cab. We need to keep the truck steady while Franklin makes his way to the back and gets into the JB7.

Driving the Car

Once Franklin is in the car, we take control and drive right off the back of the freighter. We light up the police and take out the driver. The key to getting gold on this mission is to wait until the police are relatively close before dropping spikes. We should also swerve the car while dropping spikes, as this ensures a better road coverage. We need to avoid being caught by the police for too long or it will result in a mission fail.

Finishing the Mission

Once we have taken out at least three police cars with spikes, all that’s left to do is drive alongside the truck until we reach the waypoint. We need to avoid being collected and ensure that we do not damage the JB 700 KO. Once we reach the destination, there will be a quick exchange with Molly, and we will have completed the mission with one minute and 10 seconds to spare, achieving gold and the “not a scratch” and “shredder” achievements.

Bonus Tips

If you want to get through this mission first time, here are some additional tips:

  • Wait until the cops are relatively close to drop spikes
  • Swerve about while dropping spikes to ensure good road coverage
  • Don’t let the chase go on for too long, or it can result in a mission fail


In conclusion, the Pack Man mission in GTA 5 can be completed successfully with a gold rating if the player avoids damaging the JB 700 KO, takes out at least three police cars with spikes, and completes the mission in less than 12 minutes. We hope that this guide has been helpful for you and that you enjoyed reading it. Stay safe, wash your hands, and keep playing GTA 5!

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

dive in if you’re new to the channel we do how-to guides news and giveaways so consider subscribing
ring the bell to stay up to date getting gold in this one’s pretty straightforward but it can be
a bit hairy during the police chase to get gold in this one we’ll need to avoid damaging the jb
700 ko at least three police cars with spikes and complete the whole mission in less than 12 minutes
so let’s pick it up from the briefing call with lamar
we’ll just skip that one and we’ll just go and borrow someone’s car that’ll do the job
fantastic and off we go now it’s only a short trip we just need to head around the corner so
you can see the blue marker there and that’ll take us to where lamar’s hanging out with the
last of the vehicles jump out head round and jump on in now this is a fairly quick car so be careful
not to lose control we don’t have to worry too much about damage but yeah it’s very very fast
so we’ll just hang a right onto the last turn there you can see the freighter there
and we want to very gingerly drive up there we go so we’ll auto stop and we’ll jump straight
to the cutscene which we’ll skip because again we’re on a timeline so we auto swap to trevor
and start to take control of the semi-trailer it is now really a case of following the gps
until we have our little encounter with the police
okay and now we have some police behind us franklin will get woken up by lamar here
and start clambering out of the cab and we just need to hold the truck steady
the trick here is to make sure that you don’t collect the sides make sure that you steer
away from traffic and don’t let the police spook you at all we just really need to keep
it steady so franklin it can get down to the back and get to the jb7 as quickly as possible
there we go as he makes his way up he’s nearly there and as soon as franklin’s
in the car will auto swap to him and drive clear off the back of the freighter
and we’ll do the swap there we go franklin will auto drive off the back and now we’re in control
so start by lighting up the police need to make sure that we take out the driver there we go
and what we want to do is keep it on the gps and as the police make their approach just drop
some spikes just like that and that will take out the police but don’t want to do it while they’re
off the radar are not immediately behind you otherwise the spikes won’t be effective
you’ll notice that we’re sort of weaving about the road as well so that gives the spikes a
bit of a wider range so the police have a much better chance of running over the top of them
there we go and i think there’s one more left and job’s done and all that’s left to do now
is drive alongside with the truck or drive just behind the truck to the
waypoint and make sure we don’t get collected it’s just off to the left there
and the truck will pull up just around the corner pull up next to molly there
will be a quick exchange here let’s see if we can skip the cutscene
and that’s gold one minute and 10 seconds to spare got the not a scratch achievement and
got the shredder so we needed to get three police cars with spikes we managed to get six so that is
absolutely fantastic and thanks for hanging out until the end here are my top tips on how to get
through this one first time wait until the cops are relatively close to drop spikes otherwise
they’re not effective swerve about while dropping spikes to make sure you get a good road coverage
and don’t let the chase go on for too long or it can be a mission fail
