Getting gold in this mission is a bit of fun, but can be a bit tedious on the third playthrough; because you missed the money shot, or bumped a cop car.

So let’s pick up as we receive the call from Beverly…

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.

Beverly is a photographer of vain paparazzos fascinated with celebrities. With them, he has a love-hate relationship. He obsesses about very tiny details of their life and thinks like everyone should know everything about all celebrities there is to know.

When he mistakes Franklin for rapper Clay Jackson, Beverly first sees Franklin. Beverly gives Franklin jobs as his assistant after learning Franklin is not a star. Beverly first hires Franklin when he takes photographs of a washed-up celebrity called Miranda Cowan, who takes cocaine inside her Stretch Limo, to move Beverly. Beverly meets one of his competitors when he takes pictures of her, which he knocks down with Franklin ‘s help from his bike.

With one of her co-stars, Justin, Franklin then helps Beverly film a porn tape of Poppy Mitchell having “doggy style” sex. She chases the couple in a furious fit through much of Los Santos until she collapses on a construction site at the moment they figure out they’ve been filmed.

Beverly becomes involved in a reality show based on his life after this, but asks Franklin to avoid snooping on celebrities. These missions include taking a photo of Poppy who is driving whilst drunk in a car chase and taking a picture of a member of the royal family of the United Kingdom who is buying pot from a drug dealer. Once the photographs and the recordings are released, these remaining two missions occur under the expectation of a monetary reward.

However, he is now filming his reality show the next time Franklin meets Beverly, which is intended to chronicle the “rough” life of a “journalist” from Vinewood. Beverly dismisses him when Franklin insists that Beverly give him the money he promised, and encourages Franklin to leave so that Beverly can begin taping his program, asking Franklin to contact his agent. The player is then given the option of walking away or physically taking the money (by either murdering Beverly or just beating him unconscious)

in this mission is a bit of fun but it can be a bit tedious on the third playthrough because you
missed the money shot or bumped into a cop car to get gold we’ll need to stay close to poppy for the
chase and photograph poppy in actual handcuffs so let’s pick up as we receive the call from beverly
hey yo what’s going on our friend poppy mitchell has just been spotted
in a high-speed chase for the cops like like right now bro apparently she’s wasted
get after them see if you can snag a shot of her getting busted great okay so that’s beverly’s
briefing done we can see poppy there the blue dot in the pink convertible obviously i had to
replace the blue one from before because that had a disagreement with the construction site okay
a little bit floaty there and then off to the right now this is scripted you cannot change the
outcome of what’s going on you cannot outrun the the lead car and you cannot shoot poppy off the
road the only thing you can do here is just pursue the police pursue poppy and don’t hit anything
there we go so we’ll chase poppy through the hills and then she’ll head down to the beach before
she inevitably runs out of talent so just hang back a bit use franklin’s ability just to keep
up but not to overtake do not connect with the police cars just don’t do it
right so she’ll duck off to the left here i think there we go through
the car park just watch out for this you don’t want to come unstuck there
and then through the next car park up that little bump again again just make sure you don’t come
unstuck and then around to the right watch out for the pole watch out for the bus and she’ll duck off
to the left just about to run out of talent here and uh yeah i don’t think it’s far off
there we go around to the right and between those two four wheel drives
and there it is off all right so the car will automatically pull up itself you can’t get
much closer you can’t walk too close and as poppy staggers out of the car we can jump out don’t walk
up to the police and other temptations there but you’ll get busted and that’ll be a mission fail
so we just need to wait for our friendly neighborhood officer here to assist young
poppy to her feet and then start walking into the patrol car we should get a shot and there it is
handcuffs in view and then we can send that off to beverly
right so that’s off the bevelling we’ve got a text
yep and gold so kept up with poppy and managed to get the money shot in without any dramas there
so thanks for watching to the end here are my top tips on how to get through this one first
go so when driving through the hills at speed you can lose grip especially going around some corners
slow it down to maintain control wait until poppy’s cuffs are on and in view to make sure you
have the money shot and don’t get too close to the cops during the chase or you’ll fail the mission
so what are your thoughts do you have any tips for other viewers or could this have been done
differently leave your comment down below and check out the video on the left for the last
paparazzo mission reality check or the one on the right for some more old grumpy gamer goodness
stay safe wash your hands and we’ll see you in the next video
