Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA v) Paparazzo Walkthrough: How to Get Gold
In Grand Theft Auto 5, completing missions with a gold rating can be a daunting task for gamers. In this video walkthrough, we will guide you through the GTA v mission, ‘Paparazzo’. This mission is a part of the Strangers and Freaks mission and revolves around Beverly Felton, a sleazy paparazzo. As we begin the mission, we take control of Franklin on a bike, with Beverly perched on the rear-end of it. Our task is to help Beverly take three clear photos of a celebrity in a Limo. Sounds easy, right? But here’s the catch, you must ensure that Beverly takes out his rival paparazzo, who has gained notoriety in the field.
Get Ready to Snap
As soon as the mission starts, jump on the bike, allowing Beverly to jump on as well. Once you are on the bike, begin chasing the limo. Thankfully, this is where Franklin’s unique ability comes in handy. By using Franklin’s ability, you can get a head start and avoid getting hit by oncoming cars. Since the limo is moving, try to focus on keeping the bike steady, so Beverly can snap some clear shots. If the limo comes too close, don’t worry; just move to the side, and use Franklin’s focus to catch up to the limo. It also helps if you have maxed out Franklin’s driving stat.
Knocked Out in One Go
Once Beverly gets the three clear shots, we will see a rival paparazzo photographing the celebrity. It is here that we must ensure Beverly knocks him out. As the rival is also scripted into the game, we can just hang back and enjoy the show until Beverly can take a clear shot. Help Beverly line up his shot, and use Franklin’s unique ability to ensure that he hits his mark, knocking out the rival and securing the three shots in one go, which should help us get the Gold rating.
The Alternative Ending
If you wish to witness an alternative ending, you will have to take the rival paparazzo out yourself. Once you do that, you will see Beverly chiding you for killing someone instead of merely knocking him out. The scene ends with Beverly rushing off to his next stakeout.
Tips and Tricks
To ensure you get the Gold rating, make sure to focus on keeping the bike steady, and that Beverly knocks out the rival. Also, make sure that you have maxed out Franklin’s driving stat.
