The Mission Begins
The gameplay begins with a phone call between Jimmy and Michael, where Jimmy explains that his recent online trolling was satire, and he didn’t mean it. Michael agrees to save Jimmy by following the GPS location to the kidnappers’ hideout in the hills. It is essential to choose a car quickly but carefully for a smooth ride through the hills. Michael drives the car, so you don’t have Franklin’s ability, making the car tricky to control. While on the way, you’ll notice a blue GPS marker that takes you to the kidnappers’ location. The kidnappers are in an old Charcoal colored Landstalker, which you need to shoot out off the tires to get Jimmy out of the car. This situation has an added caveat that you cannot kill the kidnappers as Jimmy insists that the kidnappers are just C-list comedians and that it won’t do any good to hurt them. Remember to be gentle with your pecker; we were guests in that poor lady’s home. You have to track them just enough to set Jimmy free.
The kidnappers start shooting at you once you begin pursuing them, so be careful not to get in their gunfire range. The best technique is to shoot the tires, causing the car to slow down and finally stop. The car will twist and turn as it moves in this mission. You need to keep following the car, shooting the tires or causing enough chaos to make the kidnappers bail from the vehicle. Once the kidnappers exit, get into the car and drive off. Michael cannot switch seats because Jimmy is still in the car, and there’s no option to leave him there. Therefore, be careful while driving with a punctured tire and try not to end up in another shootout if another car comes in pursuit.
The Escort Mission
Now that you’ve gotten into the car, Jimmy needs to be driven back home safely. This gameplay is an escort mission, where you have to watch your driving while taking Jimmy back home. At the end of the car chase, you’ll notice that the car has a flat tire, so you have to drive carefully and avoid any accidents. The GPS will show you the way to Jimmy’s lasting location, which is a friend’s place. The mission ends once you’ve dropped him off at his friend’s location.
In conclusion, the Mission Parenting 101 is a simple, yet challenging mission. You have to keep your driving skills in check, be careful not to kill anyone, and keep Jimmy safe throughout the mission. While there’s no actual gold for this mission, it’s a must-play mission as it’s part of the main story in the game and requires completion to move forward.
