How to Get Gold in GTA 5 Paparazzo Mission The Meltdown
In this video, we’ll show you how to get gold in the Paparazzo mission The Meltdown in Grand Theft Auto 5 (GTA 5). As an old grumpy gamer, I know how tedious some of these missions can be, especially when you keep missing the money shot or bumping into cop cars. But with our walkthrough, we’ll help you get gold in every damn mission in GTA 5.
The Meltdown mission involves photographing Poppy Mitchell in handcuffs after a high-speed chase with the cops. To get gold, you need to stay close to Poppy during the chase and capture the moment she gets arrested. Here’s how to do it:
The Mission Briefing
The mission starts with a call from Beverly, who informs us that Poppy Mitchell is currently in a high-speed chase with the cops. Our objective is to catch up with Poppy and take a picture of her getting arrested. From there, we are introduced to Poppy, who is represented by a blue dot on our map, driving a pink convertible.
The Car Chase
This part of the mission is scripted, meaning you cannot change the outcome of what’s going on. You have to pursue the police and Poppy without hitting anything or shooting Poppy off the road. Franklin’s ability is also essential during this part of the mission. It helps you keep up with Poppy, but not overtake her.
Poppy will head to the hills and then to the beach before she runs out of talent. Just hang back a bit and wait for her to make her moves. Don’t hit any police cars, or you’ll fail the mission. When she runs out of talent, her car will automatically pull over.
Once Poppy staggers out of the car, we can jump out and take the perfect picture. But remember not to walk up to the police, or you’ll get busted and fail the mission. Wait for the officer to assist Poppy to her feet and start walking her into the patrol car. That’s when you should take your shot, and send it off to Beverly.
Gold Medal Tips
Here are some tips to help you get gold on your first playthrough:
- When driving through the hills, slow down to maintain control and avoid losing grip.
- Wait until Poppy’s cuffs are on and in view to ensure that your shot is perfect.
- Don’t get too close to the cops during the chase, or you’ll fail the mission.
And that’s it! Follow these steps, and you’ll be able to get gold in the Paparazzo mission The Meltdown. For more GTA 5 walkthroughs, news, and giveaways, don’t forget to subscribe to our channel and ring the bell to stay up to date.
