How to Get Gold in the GTA 5 Mission “Closing the Deal”
If you’re a fan of Grand Theft Auto, then you already know that the game is massive. Between GTA 5 and the constant updates from Rockstar for GTA Online, there’s never a shortage of new content and interesting things to do. In our continuing series of getting gold in every damn mission in GTA 5, we’re going to look at the Grand Theft Auto mission “Closing the Deal”.
Getting gold in this mission can be pretty challenging, especially given the extremely limited window you have for catching up with the real estate rival, Larry. Before you start, you need to make sure you have a melee weapon equipped. Something like a hammer, a machete, crowbar, baseball bat, or a golf club does the job nicely.
To get gold in this mission, you’ll need to catch Larry in less than 40 seconds and strike him with a melee weapon. Sounds pretty tough, right? Well, here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it:
Step 1: Grab a Car
The first thing you’ll need to do to get gold in this mission is to grab a car. You can use Josh’s car, but he does get a bit upset about it. If you’d like to head over there, you can get some unique dialogue, which is kind of neat. But we’ll just borrow a random citizen’s car. What you’re looking for here is something reasonably quick that handles okay. If you can’t find one of those, then pick any car you see.
Once you have a car, start driving towards Larry’s location, and if you see a nicer or faster car on the way, grab it. It will make your mission easier.
Step 2: Get Briefed by Josh
While driving towards your destination, you’ll receive an incoming call from Josh, and he will give you a quick briefing. He will let you know that he’s let the cat out of the bag, but this doesn’t change what you’re doing in any way. Just remember to keep an eye on the right-hand side.
Step 3: Get Ready to Strike
Once you get close to Larry, park your car and wait for him to start driving. Follow the red marker to get an idea of where he’s at. Don’t bother shooting him or running him off the road; it’s pointless. Instead, shoot his car, and he’ll get out straight away.
Step 4: Strike and Run
Equip your melee weapon and give him a quick thump, just one, do not go for him any further. Take off and don’t worry about the cops; they are quite resilient. Once you complete this step, you’ve done your job accurately.
Step 5: Lose the Cops
Now, you don’t even need to lose the cops. You’ve done everything required to get gold in this mission. Congratulations!
If you followed all the steps, we mentioned, then you’ve successfully accomplished the mission and earned a gold rating.
