Between GTA 5 and the constant updates from Rockstar for GTA online, there’s no shortage of new content or interesting things to do. Join me as we continue our series of getting gold in every damn mission in GTA 5.

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 Pursuit

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.

The Conclusion

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. Do you have any tips for other viewers, or do you think there’s a better way to complete this mission? Let us know in the comments below!

channel we do how-to guides news and giveaways so consider subscribing ring the bell to start today
completing this one is a bit tedious as it’s yet another pursuit and escort mission for
jimmy and while there’s no actual goal for this one we’ll need to track down and save jimmy
trash the kidnapper’s car and take jimmy home so let’s pick it up from our phone call with jim
it’s just an online persona it was satire parody or something i didn’t mean it jim
you’re taking me up phantom canyon in this charcoal color landstalker
to punish me for trolling you if only someone would save me
stolen kid i’ll be there soon you know you you really are funny and interesting guys i mean
any attention is uh good attention right excellent so that’s us selecting to save jimmy
grab something a little bit quicker than michael’s old sluggish car
and i do like the dominator they’re good fun they are very taily but they are very good fun
so follow the blue gps marker this time round and that will take us
up to the hills to catch up with jimmy and his kidnappers now it is michael driving so
we don’t have franklin’s ability so keeping the car especially one as uh tail endy as this one
tidy is a little bit challenging but we still need to get there in one piece so
do try and avoid knocking too much you know that sometimes sounds a bit silly but it is
very very easy to get a little out of control while you’re trying to get somewhere quickly
oh that just that was poor driving on their part how dare they turn
left at a left hand turn while in the correct lane
all right so following the blue marker
we can see here we’re coming up on the marker so let’s just switch to
red so now it’s just an enemy rather than the gps
there’s the land stalker now during the briefing jimmy has given us express instructions not to
kill the comedian so we just want to try and shoot out the tyres or get him to run away so just
light up the car a little bit here and there in between phone calls and we should be okay to be
fair jimmy is being a complete tool as well that’s not helping all right so just pepper the car when
you can don’t crash obviously but also try not to kill the occupants because your son is in there
there we go so a bit more peppering and he’s pulled out and bailed out of the car and is
running away so that’s cool we don’t need to do anything further there just jump straight back
into the car now one of the reasons we don’t want to destroy the car is because jimmy
won’t get out of it so you have to jump into the landstalker and then there’s a bit of exposition
and we just need to follow the gps all the way back to michael’s house
there we go and nearly home the landscape is looking a
little worse aware we have lost a tyre but
that’s okay uh no we’re not going home it looks like we’re just dropping jimmy off at a mates
there we go
and jobs done as i mentioned before there’s no actual gold for this one but we have gotten
jimmy back safely we managed to get it without killing the sea grade celebrity or ourselves in
the meantime so what are your thoughts do you have any tips for other viewers or could this
have been 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
stay safe wash your hands and we’ll see you in the next video
