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)
