We're going through how to get Gold in the GTA 5 Mission Scouting the Port, where we'll learn pointless skills that are never used in the game ever again!

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 Grand Theft Auto Mission Scouting the Port.

…and don’t forget to hang about until the end, so you can catch our bonus tips.

Getting gold in this mission can be a bit trying. The section with the shipping container loader is widely considered the most pointless minigame in GTA (even more so than Yoga).

Know any neat mods we could use to do a bit more exploration in Lost Santos, or North Yankton? Leave your suggestions in the comments.

The mission starts at Floyd’s Vespucci Beach flat, where Trevor forces Floyd to assist him with a new caper. Trevor drives Floyd and Wade to the Port of Los Santos after all the dress in stolen longshoreman uniforms. Along the way, Trevor is questioning Floyd on whether there’s anything worth stealing at the port. Ultimately, Floyd reveals the presence of a ship that is guarded by Merryweather Security, a ship that is not allowed to approach regular dock employees like Floyd and that potentially contains military hardware. Trevor decides they have to figure out what’s on that ship.

Once at the dock, a union boss pulls Wade aside to help purge a mysterious spill. Trevor is following Floyd onto the mysterious ship

up to date getting gold in this mission can be a
bit trying the section with the shipping container loader is
widely considered the most pointless mini-game in gta even more so than the
yoga but to get gold in this one we’ll need
to avoid damaging the containers take all three photos of the ship
correctly avoid creating a nuisance of yourself
and complete the mission in under 20 minutes
as we’re on a timeline let’s jump straight in
all right so we’ll jump into trevor’s truck
and it’s just a case of following the gps
to p400 there at the port
okay and as we enter the port we’ll just slow it down a touch
and then swing off to the right as we go through to the checkpoint
head on through and then go and report to the office
okay so wade will be west off to work with a um
waste treatment incident and floyd and trevor
will be left to their own devices so we’ll just
follow floyd
can’t run on this one which i just find infuriating but at least the walking
pace is similar as we head over to the loader
we’ll get a talking to by one of uh presumably floyd supervisors
i’m in and we’re off
so the thing to remember here is this little doodad
steers from the rear like a forklift so it can be a little bit squarely the
first couple of times you use it
make sure you have a full square approach there
back it up and adjust if you need to
we’ve got a full 20 minutes here so you can make sure you take a little bit of
extra time you don’t need to necessarily be super spot on but
you also don’t need to rush yourself there so once you’ve grabbed the
container and you as you saw you don’t need to be lined up
just lift it up a touch and then head back to the next bay
all right swing in and then park near one of the end bays
and drop off the container and head back to the next one just make sure that you
at least leave one extra base spare for the second container that we’re
about to drop off
right head up square yourself up again make sure you don’t run anyone over
because then you’ll fail the mission they’ll get
quite upset
there we go and then grab that and just lift again doesn’t need to be much a
couple inches off the ground and away we go
now the trick is to watch out for those yellow bollards on the right they can
catch you just missed and drop him off again
the next thing is to head to the crane so just
drive around to it make sure you don’t hit anyone it is very easy to do that
with this the visibility is pretty damn poor
all right when you get close to the crane just jump out
up the stairs and off we go
all right now be careful not to jump
once you’re in same thing again line yourself up over a container
and scroll all the way to the end okay so line yourself up with the truck
and you can use the the positioning cameras as well
to make sure that you are dead online with us
which will change the angle once that’s down
release the container there we go and then
just again raise the boom a few few inches and then uh
head back to the next one
now as you can see we’ve had a bit of practice with this one
but again don’t be afraid to change views
to line yourself up a bit easier in the end line up and then
just drop down and grab the container don’t need to be bang on
near enough is good enough the the software all correct
there we go yeah the software will correct for you if you’re
just a few inches off raise up a bit and then head back
okay and then down again and just line up the container a bit that’s
been a bit cheeky and moved you a few inches to the side there
once that’s down release there we go
okay so trevor will clamber out we need to climb up the ladder
head out to the end of this boom and grab the camera out now we want three
photos here we need the front the middle and the back of the ship
there’s one
two yep and then all the way to the back three
there we go okay and then the next thing we need to
do is send off the photos so just
send that off and then it’ll pop up the phone and just send those off to run
great wander back clamber up
drop down and then head back to the ladder now again be very careful
not to accidentally run or jump otherwise it will end poorly
down the stairs and then finally down the ladder
all right over to the semi jump in and
we’re going to sneak around and deliberately antagonize
the merryweather guys so just a case of following the gps
again be really careful not to hit anyone the temptations to go really
quick but don’t wait for the gate through
and follow the gps to the the warehouse all right through the area past any
round to the right and then we’ll slow it down and
pull in around to the left take a nice wide r here as well
there we go sneak past make sure we don’t clip that fella
down the bottom and in and up to the marker
at this point meriwether get quite upset skip this and then head on out
now that trevor has snaffled the briefcase
excellent so just grab any vehicle well i like the look of this buffer just
um borrow that
and ron will of course give you a call so just have a listen to what he has to
say while we’re following the gps back to floyd’s apartment
so while we’re heading back to the apartment it’s probably an opportune
time to mention that we recently launched our patreon page

okay as we make our way back down the last of the
floyd street and pull in jump out and then head upstairs
and we are greeted with um wade which uh yeah
i can’t even i can’t even imagine but there we go that’s gold
so thanks for watching to the end here are my top tips
take it easy with the shipping container handler even though there’s a time limit
we don’t need the containers busted and i highly recommend selecting the
offshore method for this one as you get a cargo bob for late use in
the later game so what are your thoughts do you have
any tips for other viewers or could this have been done differently
