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.


Completing missions with a gold rating is no easy feat, but with our walkthrough, we hope to make it an enjoyable experience.

okay so we’ll jump on the bike beverly jumps on as well and we’ll give chase on the limo now this is
handy with franklin because we have his ability to work with there we go so we can make sure that we
get a little bit of a head start on there and also avoid getting collected by oncoming traffic
there we go so there’s snap number two and it really is just a case of holding the bike steady
even in the face of getting clobbered by that limo as long as you’re up to the side of it
and use your focus ability there to keep up with it then you’re pretty right
it’s also handy if you’ve spent some extra time cranking up
franklin’s uh driving stat as well that’ll help him stay on the bike a bit better
if you take this on a bit too early in the game or you haven’t clocked up enough drive time then
you’ll come off the bike pretty easily but at this point i have spent a lot of time driving around
right there is our rival now we can’t do too much here we just have to hang back
it’s all rubber banded and scripted so just avoid traffic and enjoy the show
great now we need to drive into our boy so as we catch up here we’ll just use franklin’s ability
to line ourselves up and then that’ll give beverly a plum shot there we go is he off

go so that should be gold so now we’ll just head back up to the drop off point
