Grand Theft Auto 5 Repossession Mission Walkthrough Guide – How to Get Gold
If you’re struggling to get gold in Grand Theft Auto 5’s third mission Repossession, then this video guide is for you. In this tutorial, Old Grumpy Gamer Dan takes you through how to beat the timer, get headshots, and improve your overall accuracy.
Grand Theft Auto is a massive open-world game with plenty of content to explore, including constant updates from Rockstar for GTA Online. In this continuing series, we take a look at how to get gold in every mission in GTA 5, starting with mission 3 Repossession.
Before we dive into the mission, it’s important to note that to get gold, you need to complete the mission in under 6 minutes and 30 seconds, get at least six headshots, and maintain a shooting accuracy of 70%. If you’re attempting the mission for the first time, it’s recommended that you watch all the cutscenes before trying to get gold.
Starting the Mission
As soon as the mission starts, run out of the garage and jump into one of the cars in the lot. Follow the GPS to Vespucci Beach, making use of Franklin’s ability to navigate through traffic and tight corners. Reverse the car and park it headfirst into the alley to make sure it’s ready for a quick getaway later on.
Infiltrating the Garages
Once you reach the alley, run to the end and start with the first garage on the left, where you’ll find some body armor. Then move across to the slatted wood garage door and open it to trigger the cutscene. After the cutscene, quickly take cover behind the garage corner.
Aim carefully and take out the shooters. Remember, you need at least six headshots and 70% accuracy to get gold. Change covers to the wall across the way and take out the Varcos behind the porta-body. Keep pushing forward and take cover behind the truck, shooting the clown sneaking above the bar.
Push forward again and take out the guy running across the alley, then the two on the balcony to your top right. Push to the next wall and take cover while waiting for the car to pull out. Shoot the fellow who’s retreating behind the corner, then shoot the fuel trail left by the car. If there’s an opportunity to end another Varcost or two without compromising your accuracy, take it.
Making a Quick Getaway
After shooting the fuel trail, run to the car at the end of the alley and jump in, making sure to avoid major fires. Wait for Lamar to get in and start the car immediately once he’s seated. Lamar will tell you to shoot the fleeing bike rider, but it’s more effective to simply run him off the bike.
Chase the remaining Varcos down, making use of Franklin’s ability to speed up and navigate through tight spots. Don’t get distracted by the wrong motorcycle and try to clobber the bike while using Franklin’s focus ability for more maneuverability and the ability to stop quickly. Jump on the bike and follow the GPS to the car wash.
Finishing the Mission
Once you reach the car wash, drive into the yellow marker and skip the cutscene to complete the mission. Congratulations, you’ve got gold in Repossession!
