Upon completing the main Story Mode mission called Repossession, a “?” will pop up on the radar, indicating the first Strangers and Freaks mission. The Strangers and Freaks missions have to be unlocked by playing the story, so you will have to do more story in order to unlock more Strangers and Freaks.
Tonya needs some help. It seems that her dope head boyfriend won’t get up to do his job as a tow truck driver. Pick her up in a car and then drive to the impound lot where you will find the two truck. Get inside of the tow truck and then let Tonya get inside as well.
Drive to the junker car that is the target. Align the truck with the car and so that the hook on the two truck is either facing the front or rear bumper. When stationary, use the left analog stick to raise and lower the hook. When the hook is lowered, back it up into the car to hook it.
Then it’s just a simple matter of driving the car back to the lot. Upon arriving at the lot, drive in the designated drop-off zone. Use the d-pad to unhook the car (hold “right” on the d-pad to accomplish this) and then the first Strangers and Freaks mission is completed!
Beverly is a creepy dude and the worst of the worst when it comes to paparazzi. But at least he’s got passion. Franklin’s duty is to serve as the driver for Beverly while he snaps photos of a poor aging celebrity as she tries to have some privacy in her limo.
This bike handles very well. You can also abuse Franklin’s specialty to zig-zag through traffic if need be, but luckily the limo doesn’t drive through any chaotic intersections or anything like that. Just drive up next to the windows so Beverly can get his shots. Getting three shots is enough to get gold on this mission.
Eventually, a rival paparazzo named Madison will show up and start snapping photos as well. Ignore the limo and chase him down. Get close to him and then Beverly will knock him off his bike.
Drop Beverly off where he requests. As part of your payment, he lets you keep the bike.
Beverly is at it again. This time he wants footage of America’s sweetheart celeb having anal sex. Oh Beverly. Stay classy. Meet him outside of the starlet’s house. By the way, this mission will appear as “P?” on the map because it is a series of Strangers and Freaks missions as opposed to just one.
Anyway, follow Beverly through the house. Follow his lead. At first he will just be walking slow and not in stealth mode, so do that and you won’t get caught by anyone. He runs by the pool, and it is safe for you to do that as well. If you want that Gold medal ranking at the end of the mission, also be sure to quickly jump in the pool as well.
When the celeb is spotted in the backyard having anal sex with another celebrity, that is when Beverly hands the camera over to Franklin. Just keep the camera trained directly at her face. The box around her face will be highlighted green when the camera is aimed correctly. Keep the camera’s box around the box around her face in order to accomplish this.
The left analog stick is used for zooming in and out with the camera, whereas the right analog stick is used for aiming. Eventually, you will get caught. Follow Beverly for the escape and jump in his car. The celeb will chase after you guys, but just keep the camera pointed at her face as best as possible.
It will get a little crazy, but nothing you shouldn’t be able to handle. Whenever Beverly warns that he is about to turn, move the camera there right away to keep the shot as she will speed right over into frame. When Beverly drives through the construction site, you can relax a bit and just wait for Franklin and Beverly to finish their conversation.
Franklin is the expert driver in Grand Theft Auto V, so it only makes sense that in his life, street racing is a pretty big deal. This first street race is pretty easy. After meeting up with your contact about it, you can find a pretty fast car parked right in the street just outside the alley, in case the car you brought to meet up with him isn’t very fast.
Street races are much easier than in previous games thanks to Franklin’s special ability. Whenever there is a sharp turn coming up, use the ability to get through it smoothly. The other cars don’t pose that much of a threat in the grand scheme of things, so it’s really just a test of not crashing.
Always be two steps ahead during street races. The next two checkpoints are always marked on the radar. The one that is immediately next is the larger orange blip while the one that follows that is the smaller orange blip. Always knowing where your next move is will be vital and help you get around those corners much easier.
This race is kind of long, but there are only two laps. The second lap should be much easier, though, after you’ve learned the layout of the street.
JB just can’t get his act together and Tonya needs your help towing another car. Drive to the two truck, get inside the two truck, and then drive to the car. This time it is a vehicle that is parked in a handicapped parking spot.
Hook the car and then drive it back to the lot. Unhook it in the designated area, and that’s it.
Speak with Barry on the sidewalk. Barry’s psychoactive weed doesn’t have the same effect on Trevor as it does on the other members of the gang. When you’re done talking with Barry, wait for a bit until he texts you some more information. After this, two green blips will appear on the radar.
One of these blips cuts through the freeway, the other doesn’t. First, let’s go to the one that doesn’t, although you can do this in any order. There is a small shipping area where the first drug-loaded vehicle Barry needs is located. It is a truck. After you look at it, it will appear on your radar as a blue blip, so don’t bother trying to hijack the other cars that are parked around here.
Get inside the truck. Police will show up, so lose them. Then drive to Barry’s apartment and park the truck there.
The other car is located in a junkyard by the freeway. And the junkyard is a very appropriate place for it, you’ll come to find. Franklin won’t be able to get the car started and will call Barry to complain.
When the conversation is over, exit the car. Near the entrance to the junkyard is a tow truck. Get inside and hook the car just as you did before for Tonya in her missions. Tow the car all the way to Barry’s apartment and unhook it there.
Beverly can be found hanging out in a dumpster in a parking lot. Chat with him, and then he will give you his camera while he is a part of a reality TV show based around his exciting life as a member of the paparazzi. Two locations where potential shots can be had will be added to Franklin’s map as small green blips shortly after receiving an update text from Beverly. This mission is represented the northern blip on the map.
Unlike most missions with these blips, you don’t have to walk around aimlessly in search of stuff. Arriving there will warrant a phone call from Beverly with more information. His contact has information about where to find some European royalty that likes to get high. Speak with his contact. The princess will be right behind the store.
Be careful when sneaking up behind the store. It’s better to have some nice distance between you and everyone so they don’t spot you. Being in stealth mode helps as well. All you need is a picture of the drug deal going down and that will satisfy Beverly, but if you also get a picture of her testing the product, that will nab you a Gold ranking…assuming you also don’t get caught by her bodyguards and make it out completely unseen.
If you do get caught by the bodyguards, hop in a car and flee from them immediately. They are out for blood, but outrunning them is much easier than getting away from the cops ever is.
Remember to send the photo to Beverly to complete the mission.
A starlet is having a drunk driving spree and the cops are after her. Beverly will inform you of this anyway when you drive to the next green blip. Find them and follow them. Her car is bright pink, so it is hard to miss. This driving section isn’t as chaotic as others in the game that you have surely encountered, but don’t be afraid to use Franklin’s special ability, because that is what it’s there for.
When she crashes into a tree, get out of your car and equip the camera phone. Wait for her to be in handcuffs and escorted to the police car before snapping the pic. If you don’t get this picture, Beverly will just ask that you get a better one. Send the photo to Beverly and then get out of there before the cops see you and you have to shake them.
Try to speak with Beverly again, but he is too busy with his new reality show. Of course, this pisses Franklin off. You can end the mission really quick just by leaving the scene, or you can kill Beverly.
To get the Gold ranking, you need to kill Beverly and his entire camera crew with one shot. An easy way to do this is to place sticky bombs on their camera van. Get to a safe distance and then detonate the bombs.
Alternatively, if you just care about getting through the mission, all you need to do is kill Beverly in any manner possible to proceed.
Drive out to the canyons as Franklin to find a dog that Franklin can apparently understand. Follow the dog when it runs off and it will lead you to a guy stuck in a tree by his parachute. Then the dog disappears. Creepy as shit.
Free the guy from the tree then wait for the helicopter to show up. Get inside when it does. The helicopter takes a long time to reach the area where you will be parachuting, so you can choose to skip right to there by pressing the A button. You’ll miss out on some funny dialogue, though.
When Franklin is ready to jump, you can look around with the right stick, or just press X to jump out. Aim for the landing zone on the top of the mountain. Press A to deploy your parachute when ready, but if you free fall for at least 7 seconds, you will satisfy one of the requirements for the Gold ranking. Hold both LB and RB at the same time for a more precise landing as you near it. After hitting the landing zone, this extreme adventure is not over for Franklin even then.
Hop on the bike and then race down the mountain against Dom. This is extremely dangerous and don’t be surprised if you end up dying by flying off a cliff on your bike a few times.
For most of the race, it is nearly impossible to catch up with Dom since he doesn’t have to play it as conservatively as you will as Franklin. So just stay focused on staying on course and hitting the jumps with big air to try to get Gold on this mission so you don’t have to repeat it down the road.
When the race is almost up, that is when you can get ahead of Dom without too much trouble. Just cut some corners, get in front of him, and then mash on the A button like crazy to really get some speed on the bike and zip right through the blue checkpoint and the blue finish line.
The adrenaline junkie Dom is at it again. Meet up with him at the airport. Then drive the ATV across the tarmac to the plane with its cargo hold door down. Drive up the ramp and inside of its cargo hold.
Then drive the ATV out of the back of the plane. You can do various tricks while on the ATV if you want. When ready, get off the ATV by pressing Y, then deploy the parachute and land in the LZ as close to the center as possible.
Franklin has to race against a chick that is obsessed with fitness and also training for a triathlon. So this is like one of those triathlon races that are available to partake in across Los Santos, albeit this is just a one on one affair.
The first leg of the triathlon is swimming. Pace yourself. Biking is up next. You’ll have to get some speed doing the biking leg of this triathlon as there is a ramp in the middle of it that you need to hit to get some air across a pretty wide gap, but don’t burn yourself out yet.
Sprinting is the final leg of the triathlon. At this point, mash on the A button like crazy to win the race.
Before doing this mission, Franklin will require some means of getting on top of the skyscraper designated by Dom. Either grab a plane or chopper from Trevor’s airstrip or steal one from the airport. I recommend stealing a plane from the airport because it’s easy to lose the heat and you are automatically equipped with a parachute. Otherwise you will have to buy one from Ammu-Nation first.
Anyway, fly over the building then hop out and use the parachute to land safely on top of it. Then speak with Dom. Press X when ready to jump off the building. Almost immediately, pull the parachute. There is a flatbed truck that you need to land on. It is pinkish in color, so it’s not hard to miss.
Hold LB and RB together as you near the truck and try to have Franklin’s legs just in front of it as you descend. Do this correctly, and Franklin will land on the truck. Wait for the truck ride to be over.
Call Tonya to start this mission. Then retrieve the tow truck. Drive it to the railroad tracks where the car is stuck. Knock the car off the track, then hook it to the trailer. Wait for the driver of the car to get in, then take the car to the designated location and drop it off at the repair shop.
This is another mission where, in order to start it, you actually have to give Tonya a call. This will automatically put you in the mission, so don’t call her until you’re actually ready to do it. Then retrieve the tow truck. Drive to the guy needing help and take his car to the repair shop. Make sure you don’t leave without him in the truck with you though.
Some point after completing “Still Pulling Favors”, this one will pop up on the map with Tonya at her usual spot on the corner. Go talk to her then drive with her to the tow truck. Wait for her to get into the truck with you and then drive with her to the scene of the wrecked car.
Hook the car and take it to the auto repair shop. Then return the tow truck.
Before this mission can even begin, you have to complete all 13 parachuting missions. These will appear a short time after talking with Dom initially. Then you can just go around and do them all. Most aren’t too hard to get to, but some require a helicopter in order to reach (or at least, the easy way to reach them is with a helicopter).
To start any of the parachuting missions, you either have to get inside of a helicopter that is being flown by Dom’s buddy that you met earlier or you simply have to find the parachute on the ground and use the d-pad to start the mission.
When done with the 13 parachuting missions, go to Dom’s location on the map, incidentally at a dam. Before you can go to Dom, you have to talk to that creepy ass dog again. Then walk over to Dom and watch his “epic” jump. at that point, you can choose to just walk away or jump after him.
If you decide to jump after him, grab the parachute that is on the ground if you don’t already have one. Then jump from where Dom jumped, except use the parachute and survive the fall. Doing this will get you the Gold rating for this mission.
In order to start this mission, you need to find all 50 letter scraps. For more information on finding the letter scraps, either refer to the video that can be found by clicking here or use this text guide:
Upon collecting all 50 of the scraps, head to the location of the murderer, Dreyfuss. He will attempt to escape, so choose to either kill him or let him go. If you want to kill him, you’ll have to do it very fast. Blowing up his van when he tries to speed away is the best way to do this, so try to go there with RPG.
THE LAST ONE
After obtaining 100% in-game completion and letting some time pass, you can actually play one last Strangers and Freaks mission as Franklin. When the “?” icon appears on the map, go to the location and speak with the Bigfoot hunter out there.
After that, go to the last known location of the beast, which will be marked as a blip on your map. Upon arriving here, Bigfoot will start fleeing. His howls will clue you in on his location, but you have to be close enough to hear them. They will appear as red blips on the radar as well, but they disappear shortly after the howl is heard.
Chase Bigfoot through the woods and up a mountain. Avoid any dangers such as mountain lions and the like. When you have a clear shot, shoot him in the head and then after the cut-scene, you can just walk away or kill him, your choice.

Michael can first start doing Strangers and Freaks missions after the story mission “Complications” is completed.
What a trip. Aliens will start to invade and Michael has nothing to defend himself with except a badass minigun. Use said minigun to mow down the aliens as they appear. Use your radar to find them instantly as they spawn. When they get close, they will blast Michael with blue lasers that seemingly come from their heads. They will also use a height advantage to keep dealing damage to Michael.
If enough damage is done, an abduction will begin. To resist the abduction, wiggle the left analog stick rapidly. Keep mowing down the aliens until the bad trip is finally over.
This little two person race is short and ends on the beach. However, since this mission is available so early in the game, Michael will probably become fatigued pretty quick. Continuing to sprint while exhausted will cause Michael to lose health, so you could literally die on this jog.
Because of that, don’t go so hard during the early parts. Cut corners to get ahead. This is GTA, you’re not required to play fair. After hitting the beach, just go all out. Mash on that A button and run through the objective markers until you reach the finish line. Even if Michael starts taking damage, you should be able to finish the race before he has a heart attack and dies from it.
Starting this Strangers and Freaks side mission series requires you to open Michael’s phone and then search the word “Epsilon” in the Eyefind search bar. This will bring up the website as the first hit. Click on the website. Take the survey, donate some money (the choices are $500 or $5,000) if you’d like, then back out of the phone.
On the map, a blue “?” should now be there, indicating a Strangers and Freaks mission again. Go to this location out in the mountains to find a red truck just sitting in the middle of nowhere. Approach the truck and then a cut-scene will play, and afterwards, Michael will wake up in his undies in the middle of the desert.
As you’ll come to discover with these Epsilon missions, the part of the mission that needs explanation is not what happens when you reach the Epsilon mission marker on the map. That’s just a cut-scene again. However, it is how you get there that is important.
To get this mission to pop up, first you have to receive an e-mail from Epsilon asking for a $500 donation. Link through the e-mail by opening the e-mail and pressing X. Then choose to donate $500. Now some time needs to pass before you can continue to the next stage. If you are still going through other missions and such, just keep doing those, but if you are focused entirely on getting through these missions, sleep in a bed to make the time pass faster. Sleeping will go forward six hours at a time.
Finally, when the symbol appears, head to that location. It is a building that looks unmarked and rather insignificant. Go through the door and watch the cut-scene.
Donate $5,000 to Epsilon again by using their website. Then make time pass quickly by sleeping or just keep playing until the symbol pops up again for Michael. Head there and watch the subsequent cut-scene.
The next e-mail you get from Epsilon will be a request to gather five cars and deliver them to the Epsilon designated garage. These are the vehicles requested by Epsilon:
1 – Pegassi Vacca
2 – Benefactor Surano
3 – Declasse Tornado
4 – Enus Super Diamond
5 – Dinka Double-T
Here is how to find each of the Epsilon cars.
The first car is a Pegassi Vacca and it is located in Vinewood Hills. To find it, put the cursor on the map over the Pitchers property. Then move the cursor up to the body of water that is in the middle of Vinewood Hills. Go to the bottom of this body of water, and there is a highway (the thick black line) right near the water. Move the cursor down to the second black line highway, then to the third black line highway. Put a marker in the middle of this and then search that street. The Pegassi Vacca will found in one of the driveways of the people that live on the street. Steal it and then park it in the designated garage. Make sure it is parked deep enough inside the garage for the game to register it. Then exit the vehicle and the garage, and walk away so that the vehicle registers as being found.
Benefactor Surano is the second car to find. It is also located in Vinewood Hills. Find the body of water again, and then look up. There is a section of road right in the middle of the landmass that extends into the middle of the lake. Aim the cursor in the center of this, and then on the road that is to the east and place the marker there. You’ll find the car parked in a public parking spot. Take it, return it to the garage, park it.
The third car, Declasse Tornado, is located on Hawick, in the north part of Los Santos, to the east of Michael’s house. About five blocks to the east, actually. The car is parked in the parking lot of an auto repair shop. Get in it, park it in the garage, then exit the vehicle and the garage.
The fourth car is in Rockford Hills, the Enus Super Diamond. It is in a back alley, not hard to miss. Grab it and then take it to the garage as usual.
There is a KNOWN glitch regarding this mission. MAKE AN EXTRA SAVE RIGHT NOW. The reason for this is that after delivering the fifth car, you HAVE to head to the next Epsilon mission IMMEDIATELY, or else the mission is lost forever. This means that if you die on your way there or the game shuts off or start a new mission or whatever else, you’re just screwed out of completing it. Rockstar is aware of the issue, but there has been no word on whether or not they will actually bother to patch it.
The fifth vehicle is not a car, but a red motorcycle and it is also located in Rockford Hills. Check the parking lot of the Lifeinvader headquarters. Get it and then park it in the garage to have successfully delivered all the vehicles.
After that, go to to the Epsilon symbol immediately to get your next task. You have to search the desert for alien artifacts using a special scanner. Collect all the artifacts and then wait for another e-mail. This time you will be prompted to donate $10,000. Do so.
BEARING THE TRUTH
Speak with the Epsilon lady again. After that conversation, go to the website again and purchase the robes. The robes will set you back $25,000. Then return to Michael’s house and just keep sleeping until the robes appear in your wardrobe. Equip the robes and then wear them for 10 days straight. You can accomplish this by just sleeping over and over and over again, of course.
After 10 days is up, wait for a text…
DELIVERING THE TRUTH
After receiving the text, go to the plane. Deliver the plane to the airstrip in the desert.
EXERCISING THE TRUTH
Then go to the next mission that appears. You are literally required to run around in the desert for a total of 5 in-game miles while wearing the robes.
UNKNOWING THE TRUTH
Now you have three different options to completing this mission series and getting the Kifflom! achievement. Meet up with the leader of the cult and donate $50,000 to their cause for one of those methods. The second method is to just leave. And the third method is to kill everybody. This will be how to get the gold rating for this mission.

The Jack Nicholson-esque psychopath Trevor can be controlled after the mission “The Jewel Store Job”. After that, he will have his own set of Strangers and Freaks missions to complete just like Franklin and Michael.
Trevor’s neighbor Cletus wants to do a little bit of target practice, but he wants to do it the American way…you know, with a high-powered sniper rifle and what-not. Follow Cletus up the steps of his building and then shoot the supports on the three satellite dishes he points out to you.
Then find a vehicle and drive to the abandoned motel when Cletus asks. There is a dune buggy right where this mission started, so might as well grab that. Upon driving to the motel, follow Cletus up the stairs and then follow his instructions. Take aim at the tires of the moving cars on the highway. Shoot out one tire on three different cars to complete the second part of this mission.
After that, follow Cletus again and he will lead you to another part of the motel where you can get onto the roof thanks to some handy rubble. On top of the roof now, a few packs of coyotes can be seen. Kill at least three coyotes to finish this mission with Cletus.
Old? Creepy? Trevor?! Nah. Trevor will get so outraged by the insults to him by the punk rednecks that he will permanently be in use of his special rage ability throughout this whole mission. In order to pass the mission, you need to get 25 kills before the time runs out, but you should aim much higher than that.
Getting 45 kills and blowing up a couple of cars is enough to get the Gold ranking. Just stand in the middle of the street and kill all the rednecks as they come. Take care of the red blips on your radar that are closest, obviously, and otherwise just keep shooting everyone and everything until the time runs out.
Cletus needs a hunting buddy, and who better than the creepy old man Trevor? Drive to the lodge to meet up with Cletus there. He will give you a sniper rifle again as well as a diaphragm that is somehow used as an elk call.
Follow Cletus into the woods. The basics of hunting will then be explained. For hunting, go into stealth mode to avoid making too much noise. Also keep in account the direction of the wind. Try to avoid being downwind from animals as they can them smell you, which will cause them to run away.
For now, just follow Cletus closely. An elk will be spotted. Take it out. When that elk is dead, follow Cletus a little bit deeper into the woods. He will then tell you to use the elk call. Press “left” on the d-pad to use the call. On your radar, there will be an area highlighted as a red circle now when the elk calls back. This is the basic area where the elk is located. You may need to move up hill a little bit more to get a good shot, though.
After the second elk has been killed, Cletus will spot a mating pair. Do not shoot the doe, as that will result in a mission failed. The male elk will be behind a bush near the doe after you call them with the elk call. So move up the hill until you can get a clear shot, but be wary of the wind. Then take the shot and kill that elk.
Cletus will leave Trevor be in the woods to get a final kill himself to prove his worth. As soon as Cletus is gone, spam the elk call until they appear on the radar. The wind will be a huge factor now as these elk will typically be downwind from you since the wind changes. Try to make your way slowly down the hill and around a bit to avoid the elk catching wind of Trevor’s scent.
Kill this elk and then approach its dead body. Pull out your phone by pressing “up” on the d-pad and go to the camera app. It will take a second to load your stored pictures, and then it will go into camera mode. Snap a photo of the dead elk corpse and send it to Cletus. He will then send you a text. Read the text, then back out of the phone so Cletus can call you. Answer his call and a new optional side activity, hunting, will be available for Trevor.
Trevor meets a friendly old couple that are obsessed with collecting celebrity doodads. After this meeting, one of these elderly people, Nigel, will send Trevor an e-mail with the details of various celebrity hangouts.
Looking at this e-mail will mark locations on your map in an orange field. This is where you need to search to find the items. These can be done any order. If you zoom out of your map all the way, the orange blips are like this: two small, one large, and one medium. Kerry is located at the medium one.
Upon arriving at the location, note the walking area between the stores that cuts through the center of the orange blip. Walk down here to find Kerry and her dog. Approach them and the dog will run away. Sprint after the dog until it is cornered. Then grab the collar off of its neck and leave. First souvenir down.
Head to the Tequi-la-la night club. If you are following this guide for Trevor’s Strangers and Freaks missions exactly, then this will be the orange blip closest to where you are after completing the previous mission. Just enter the club and you’ll find Willie hitting on some chick in front of the stage.
Engage Willie in fisticuffs. Punch him a few times to knock his gold tooth out. Pick up the tooth and then shake the two star Wanted level. After Trevor reports his success to Nigel, the mission is done.
Mark is out on the golfing range, golfing and such. You can buy your way onto the range, but it’s going to end badly either way. Find Mark on the green and kill him and his associates. Then grab the golf club from his bag that is sitting on the back of his golf cart. Shake the cops.
Hop the fence to reach Tyler’s house. His gardener will be digging around in the back of his van for supplies. Go into stealth mode, sneak up behind the gardener, and then knock him out.
Go around the side of the house, hopping the fences, until you reach the pool area. If you wait for Tyler to be swimming the opposite direction of his clothes, you can snatch them and escape without getting the cops called on you. If he spots you, just grab the clothes and run through the backyards to hide an elude the police.
Meet up with Nigel on the sidewalk. After the scene, get in the, uh, “chariot” and chase down Napoli. You can’t actually catch up to him, so just follow him throughout the city. He will lead you through parking garages and other areas in an attempt to escape from you, but just stay on him and you should do fine.
When he smashes through the hospital, that is when you’re going to want to slow it down. The dust from Napoli smashing through the hospital walls will greatly obscure your vision. So take it slow. When ramping out of the window after him, pick up speed. Be VERY careful on this jump as it is easy to wreck Nigel’s car and fail the mission doing this.
If you land properly, the mission will be complete.
Meet up with Nigel outside the safehouse where they are keeping Napoli. Get in the blue car with Napoli in the trunk and now you have a choice. You can choose to free Napoli and get paid for it by getting out of the car and going to the trunk. This will end the mission very quickly. Your other option is to kill Napoli.
This requires driving out to the boonies a bit. After arriving at the tracks, park the car on them and wait for the train to show up and do its job. Then Trevor will call Nigel on the phone to let him know the deed is done.
Speak with Barry at his usual spot in the courtyard. Trevor will hallucinate about murderous clowns as opposed to the aliens that Michael hallucinated about. Kill all the clowns with the shotgun that you’re equipped with.
Vans full of clowns will start to pull up and spawn more clowns endlessly. When the vans show up, make them your target and fire at them until they are completely destroyed. This will keep more clowns from spawning.
Killing all the clowns will end Trevor’s temporary nightmare.
Meet up with the two border patrol guys at the van they’re spying into. Then get into their van and drive to the bar. Check it out inside and there will be nothing to find. Go back outside and get inside the border patrol van and chase down the mariachi band.
It is possible to stop the band before they inevitably end up crashing themselves, and you have to do so within 40 seconds to get the Gold ranking. That being said, if getting Gold doesn’t concern you, you can also just follow them through the desert until they crash. If you are having troubles not crashing the van, this may be the best route for now.
When they do crash or when you crash them, get out of the van and Trevor will automatically have a stun gun equipped. Use the stun gun on both band members. Get in their car and drive away with it to satisfy another “Gold” requirement.
Meet up with the border patrol people again as Trevor. Get in their van and chase down the guy fleeing on the ATV. He will crash. Get out of the van and aim the stun gun at him. This will cause him to get into the back of the van. Then get back inside the van yourself and drive to the cement factory.
Upon arriving, the “illegals” will flee on bikes over the countryside. Chase them down. Drive up on their side and then your partners will stun them from inside the van. Afterwards, get out of the van and herd them into it by aiming the stun gun at them. Then wait for the border patrol fellas to get in the van for the mission to be completed.
Looks like Trevor has some debts to pay after dealing with those border patrol people. Drive to their location and then kill the foreigner first. Then chase after the other guy. He is in a tractor, so he is really easy to drive up next to and shoot to death.
This is actually a two-part mission. It begins as a collect-a-thon of sorts called Extra Commission, but I am not going to give that its own segment because I don’t think it really counts as a true mission in the game, so to speak. After all, the MISSION PASSED thing doesn’t pop up when you complete the objective.
Anyway, after the first conversation with Josh, he will text you the details behind Avery’s real estate business. Included in this text is a link. Press X to access the link. Now you can mark each of the houses one by one with this website. It can be tedious, but it makes the search much easier.
Basically, the goal here is to destroy all of Avery’s FOR SALE signs. They all look the same. Some of them can be ran over, but others are going to need to be shot or something because they are elevated. Anyway, destroy all 15 of them. I recommend doing all of them that are directly in Los Santos first, then take care of the ones in the desert areas. Try to keep it organized, i.e., go from the left side of the map to the right so that you don’t lose track of which houses you’ve already hit.
When that is done, wait for another text from Josh. Then meet him at the hotel for your reward. After that, you’ll get another text from Josh. Meet him at the next location where he asks to start the “Closing the Deal” mission properly.
Drive to the area described by Josh and then slowly move up the street. You’ll be looking for a green Comet. And it is lime green as hell, so it is almost impossible to miss. Keep the camera trained on the houses to your left as you drive up the hill and you’ll definitely see it. Drive to it and Avery will attempt to flee.
Once again, this is another chase that can end early depending on how good you are. If you are able to disable Avery’s car, whether that is through shooting out his tires or causing him to wreck, that’s great. Avery drives very fast and through lots of narrow areas and streets with plenty of traffic, so you’ll probably want a fast car going into this mission. All those houses with the signs in front of them that you were destroying have fast cars, so I recommend checking there. I found an Inferno at one of the houses that was perfect for this.
Anyway, if you are unable to disable his vehicle, he will just keep driving until eventually crashing into a creek. Now you have to threaten in him one of two ways. One, you can simply aim a gun at him until the dialogue is over. Or two, you can beat him with a melee weapon. Either method will satisfy the requirements and complete the mission.
Get your reward from Josh’s wife at the motel, but Josh will have another favor for Trevor. After he explains the situation, get in Josh’s car and drive to his house. Hop the fence and go to the pool in the back. Right next to the pool is the grill.
Equip the jerry can that is full of gasoline. To equip the jerry can, hold LB to bring up the weapon wheel. Then go to the bombs slot and use the d-pad to scroll through the different options until you reach the can. Dump some gasoline on the grill, then lead a gasoline trail up to the front yard by following the yellow dots on the radar.
Shoot the gasoline trail. Then climb the fence and get out of there as quickly as possible. If you don’t escape fast enough, you will have to outrun the cops before continuing.
Even Trevor gets a piece of Mary-Ann. Trevor’s experience with her is just a bicycle race down the mountain. It’s actually pretty easy and relaxed compared to the Mary-Ann missions for Michael and Franklin.
Simply win the race. Afterwards, there is some body armor at the area where the bike race ends, so grab that real quick for some free armor.
Josh, that snake pig! Upon arriving at Josh’s place, try to kill him if you have the health/armor/bullets to spare. Then get in the cop car and outrun the cops. Simple as that.
Completing the first Rampage mission will cause the other Rampage missions to appear on your map, one by one, as an orange skull. You can tackle these much earlier than I have them listed, but this is when I started to do them, hence why they’re listed clear down here.
Anyway, this first one involves a submachine gun and a Mexican gang. The goal is the same. Kill everything, blow up cars, go for headshots, try to get as many kills as possible.
A Rampage against the good old Baller gang. This time you use a machinegun. Once again, same concept and goals as before.
This one is probably the hardest. Trevor has to use a grenade launcher against American soldiers. This is hard to get the Gold ranking because it still requires headshots. As soon as the Rampage starts, retreat to the nearby red brick on the ground.
Staying on the road will ensure death. The soldiers will always stop their jeeps and trucks in the road instead of trying to run you over. This gives you a safe distance to use the grenade launcher to blow up vehicle after vehicle after vehicle and kill a ton of them in the process as well.
They will start using tanks, which can make things hard. When a tank arrives, start strafing to the left or right while constantly lobbing grenades into its side. After about six or more grenades, the tank will blow up. Then you can return to the side of the road and continue like normal until another tank shows up eventually.
Completing this final rampage will give you the achievement/trophy called “Red Mist”. But anyway, this one has to deal with killing hipsters with a shotgun. The hipsters are much easier than the soldiers, though they do try to run Trevor over with their mopeds. Same strategy for the first three Rampages applies here perfectly, except watch out for the mopeds and make them a priority as soon as they pop up.
