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.

The Arrest

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.

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
