Grand Theft Auto Online: Solo Missions Volume 4

Updated on August 20, 2019
Eric Seidel profile image

"GTA 5 Online" helped get me through a hard part of my life. When you spend THAT much time with a game you can't help but write about it.

The Reference Guide Has Useful Info

Quick Info On The Guide

Given by: <The Contact Character the Mission is given by, relevant to how difficult and how much money you could make from the Mission.

Rank Unlocked: <The Rank you will start to get notifications/unlock the listed Mission.

Possible Pay: <The amount of money you COULD get from playing the Mission Solo. May change from Update to Update.

Weapon(s) Recommended: <What you should use to blow up and shoot stuff.

Personal Vehicle Recommended: <Spoilers, you'll probably need something fast.

Best Place To Launch Mission: <Most Missions can be launched from specific spots on the map to prevent a long drive.

(At the bottom of Missions I will put in parenthesizes if you can do the above walkthrough at the Recommended Rank. Basically this will be the "you should wait to unlock a specific weapon or ability before doing this Mission Solo" section)

Bold means you could bring a friend along if doing the Mission Solo is too hard. (Nothing wrong with doing that.)

In Italics I'll point out old gen/new gen differences plus anything changes from a major update/patch.

No Hay Bronca

Given by: Gerald

Rank Unlocked: 8

Possible Pay (after patch 1.16): $14,720 (still the same after patch 1.30)

Weapon(s) recommended: SMG, Grenades, Marksman Rifle, Proximity Mine, Jerry Can

Personal Vehicle recommended: Any

Best Place To Launch Mission: Los Santos Custom is La Mesa

Go to the deal

From the LSC drive down the road to the deal. Go through the chain-link gates, take cover behind you PV, and equip your SMG.

Retrieve the package

Shoot the red propane tank to start off your assault. Obviously the guy at the top of the incline is a priority too. More gang members will arrive behind you. Take them out next once they do, but don’t toss a Grenade unless you’re sure you have a clear throw. It could bounce off the gate and kill you instead (been there…). Once the reinforcements are dealt with continue with the last couple Vagos with the package. Once they’re all dead retrieve the package.

Deliver the package to Gerald’s apartment

Four enemy vehicles will come to the scene. While taking cover behind your PV (after you reverse back into the alley) use Grenades on them. Loot all of the bodies for Ammo, Cash, and Snacks. Drive to Gerald’s apartment.

Go to the gang territory

Pick up the Armor and Jerry Can here. The latter is useful, but not required for the next part; I’ll leave that up to you. Get in your PV and drive to the gang territory.

Destroy the gang’s vehicles

Shoot the red tank next to the Vagos in the alley. Then toss a Grenade near the fence to the right to get it out of the way. Go into this first lot and climb the ladder by the garage (see first picture). Climb the ladder quickly since a lot of angry gang members will be shooting at you all at once. Including the guy already on the roof of the building, kill him first, then gun down every gang member you see from up here using your Marksman Rifle. Once the area is clear (as clear as you can make it from here), climb back down and shoot the red tank to blow up the Cavalcade. Run across the alley and take cover behind the second house to the left (see second and third pictures). Equip a shotgun and use it to weed through most of the reinforcements. Watch your surroundings to the back and right, they can flank behind you there. Once you have made the situation comfortable for yourself run out to the main road (the one across the street from the Vagos neighborhood where you can find gang cars). Run up the street to the left, to the house with the white driveway (see fourth picture). Toss a Proximity Mine in front of the Phoenix parked here, but not so close that it blows it up. Run back into the alley and go down to the lot at the bottom of the hill (the one with the single red blip). Shoot the leftover Vagos and the red tank next to the Phoenix parked here. Next go to the middle lot, with the two red blips, and pour gas from a Jerry Can on both (with a stream between). Or you could use a Grenade, but what the hell, save $250 and just burn them.

The gang leader is escaping, take him out

If you planted the Proximity Mine earlier this part will not be an issue. If you decided not to (why I don’t know) run out to the street and spray the gang leader’s windshield Michael Mann style. Sometimes he almost always crashes into a pole making his escape. If that didn’t work (still you got mines dude…) then chase after him in your PV and shoot him from behind the wheel. Once the gang leader is dead the mission is over.

(At Rank 8 you use a DLC assault rifle; Sawn off Shotgun, Marksman Rifle, and a Proximity Mine. Grenades are not unlocked until Rank 15. You can also take a lot of damage at this Rank, especially when climbing that ladder. Bring lots of Snacks and Armor.)

No Smoking

Given by: Lamar

Rank Unlocked: 30

Possible Pay (after patch 1.16): $9,900 (after patch 1.30): $7,430

Weapon(s) recommended: Assault Rifle, Grenades, and Micro SMG/AP Pistol (depending)

Personal Vehicle recommended: Any

Best Place To Launch Mission: The Ammunation/Shooting Range in Rancho

Go to the El Burro Heights train yard

Drive around the corner to the train yard. Once you drive through the main gates go to the left. Make a right at the trailers on the right (see first picture).

Steal the trailer

Flank around the Vagos following the tracks you will come to a switch operator’s platform (see second picture). Climb the ladder to the top and equip your assault rifle. You can kill all of the Vagos from up here. Don’t use explosives or you could risk blowing up the trailer. Once all of the bad guys are dead; climb back down and get in the semi truck.

Deliver the trailer to the depot

Drive out of the train yard and follow the GPS route. Enemy vehicles (three at once) won’t attack until you cross the intersection before the Ammunation/Shooting range. Disembark the semi truck and use Grenades or Grenade Launcher on the enemy vehicles. Alternatively you could keep on trucking, at full speed, and crash through. From here you can use the weight of the vehicle to push their’s off the road. You will get hit a few times, but not as bad as taking on several gunmen with no cover. Before you get to the depot take it easy around the nearby turn, you could flip the trailer if you turn too hard.

(At Rank 30 you have everything you need to complete this mission solo. Sans the Grenade Launcher.)

On Maneuvers

Given by: Lester

Rank Unlocked: 65

Possible Pay (after patch 1.16): $13,140 (after patch 1.30): $15,330

Weapon(s) recommended: Sticky Bombs or Grenades, sniper rifle, assault rifle, Minigun/RPG/Homing Launcher

Personal Vehicle recommended: Any, one that gives good cover specifically

Best Place To Launch Mission: Beeker’s Garage in Paletto Bay

Go to the army training grounds

From Beeker’s Garage just drive up the hill behind it.

Steal the Annihilator

Equip your Sticky Bombs or Grenades and blow up the two Barracks trucks parked below. Next take cover behind your PV and equip your sniper rifle. Take out the soldiers below, a couple of them don’t even react to the initial attack. Finish those guys off with an assault rifle from closer. There are also two soldiers behind the bus wreckage. Your view is obstructed, by a tree, from up on the hill. So just take them out from here. Once all of the soldiers are dead get in the Annihilator.

Deliver the Annihilator to the airfield

Take off immediately, heading south over Mt. Chiliad. A jet and two Buzzards are on their way to your location to shoot you out of the sky. The jet undoubtedly will get there first, but don’t react like you would in Free-Roam, this is an A.I. not a rival player. As you ascend the mountain the jet will circle you, trying to line up a shot. You can dodge these Missiles, but if you hear a warning beep then he’s coming right at you. (Note: If you're like an expert at air combat with the Annihilator then just ignore the following, how you do the mission from here is entirely up to you.) Once at the top of the mountain land near the wooden observation platform and disembark the Annihilator. Run a short distance away so it doesn’t get hit by any stray Missiles, that is if the jet has time to line up that kind of shot. Equip any anti-aircraft weapon (I used the Minigun) and take it out of the sky before it has time to line up a kill shot. The two Buzzards still approaching from the south are a lesser threat. You’ll be able to see them coming in the distance as you fight the jet. You could try sniping the pilots with your sniper rifle, or just use the Homing Launcher once they get within range to take them quicker. You could also spray them with the Minigun. Once all bogies have been shot down, get back in your Annihilator, and fly to the airfield.

(At Rank 65 you obviously don’t have a Minigun unlocked, but the Homing Launcher is more than capable of taking out the jet if you can line up the shot. It flies slow enough for it too work, but might take a couple shots.)

On The List

Added With The High Life Update

Given by: Martin

Rank Unlocked: 18

Possible Pay (after patch 1.30): $13,360

Weapon(s) recommended: Proximity Mine, sniper rifle, Micro SMG or AP Pistol, and Grenades

Personal Vehicle recommended: Super class or Buzzard Attack Chopper

Best Place To Launch Mission: It always starts you at the Kortz Building in Pacific Bluffs

Take out targets

There’s two ways to doing this mission; on the ground or in a Buzzard. The on-the-ground method is not impossible (even with the 10 minute timer), especially if you have a Super class vehicle (or anything fast you’re comfortable with), and follow the route in this walkthrough (going from north to south). Use Quick GPS to put a waypoint onto the next target after each kill. Of course you could use your Buzzard Attack Chopper to make the mission faster and easier, but you should still go north to south.

Dune Buggy guy in Vinewood Hills: Starting from here on the map (see first picture) follow the dirt road around toward the Observatory. Drop a Proximity Mine on the dirt road, sort of in the center (see second picture). Then keep going past the target, he’ll bolt past you (or crash into you) and drive over the Mine. If you’re in the Buzzard just use a lock-on Rocket.

Billboard guy in Alta: Get out of your car and shoot the target between the billboards. Use a sniper rifle to get a better mark on him. If you’re in a Buzzard use your Machine Gun, in first person view (old or new gen), and spray him.

Motorcycle rider in Pillbox Hill: You can knock this guy off the bike then shoot him, or chase and shoot him, or beep the horn then shoot him? You get the idea. If you’re using the Buzzard he’s slightly tricky to lock-on to, but not impossible. He just keeps driving around the block.

Gang members in Chamberlain Hills: These guys have a couple of guards with them. You can run them over then shoot, or drop a Grenade as you go by. Either way don’t waste time trying to make it dramatic. Just shoot them and keep going. In a Buzzard just spray with the Machine Gun or use a Non-Homing Rocket.

Take out final target

Martin will text you about a target, in a boat, who will spawn at the Marina. The timer will reset to five minutes. When you get to the Marina run down to the dock and steal one of the boats parked here. Chase after the final target using your AP Pistol or Micro SMG. If you can’t catch up to them they will slow down around the Airport. An enemy boat will come to defend them. Don‘t worry about that the mission will be over the moment you kill the final target. If you are in a Buzzard use Homing Rockets. Just make sure you have the right distance and altitude or else they will just explode in the water below the boat.

(Depending on how you want to tackle this mission has a lot to do with this. You could shoot the Billboard target with a Marksman Rifle, but the standard Sniper Rifle has a longer zoom. It’s up to you, but I would say wait for the Sniper Rifle.)

(You can do this mission yourself, you have to rush but it can be done. If you want bring a buddy along. They could take out the two lower targets and you could take out the guys from the north up. Then you both can fight over who will get bragging rights for dealing with the final target.)

Out of Court Settlement

Given by: Martin

Rank Unlocked: 22

Possible Pay (after patch 1.16): $7,250 (still the same after patch 1.30)

Weapon(s) recommended: Any Pistol or Micro SMG

Personal Vehicle recommended: Any

Best Place To Launch Mission: Los Santos Customs in Burton

Take out the lawyer

From where you spawn drive to the intersection near the Ammunation in Hawick. Block the lawyer’s car and shoot him from behind the wheel.

Pick up the evidence

Get out of your PV and pick up the briefcase of evidence.

Lose the cops

Soon after you get back into your PV you will receive a two-star Wanted Level. Drive into any of the numerous alleys in the area. Also use the Mask trick to remove a star.

Deliver the evidence to Madrazo’s house

Now with the cops off your back drive to Madrazo’s house to finish the mission.

(At Rank 22 you can do this mission no problem. If you can block the lawyer’s car, and are quick on the trigger [errr Bumper] it’s a piece of cake.)

Out of Harmony

Given by: Trevor

Rank Unlocked: 50

Possible Pay (after patch 1.16): $14,700 (after patch 1.30): $12,600

Weapon(s) recommended: assault rifle, Grenades, Proximity Mines

Personal Vehicle recommended: Any

Best Place To Launch Mission: Clothes Store (Suburban) in Sandy Shores (starts you near Cement Works in next-gen)

Go to the cement works

From where you spawn drive up the hill behind the Suburban. Park at the edge (see first picture).

Steal the trailer

You will receive a text message from Trevor and a 6 minute timer. From where you are take cover behind your PV and throw a Grenade on the Lost van down below. It’s far enough away that you won’t blow up the trailer. Shoot the other guys in the area below (see second picture). More will spawn to the North, but don’t sit around to finish them off. They just keep spawning and you don’t have the time. Get in the semi truck and pack it up into the trailer.

Deliver the trailer to the boat

Drive straight ahead and ignore the yellow GPS route. Go cross-country, but carefully. Lost gang members on motorcycles will come after you. For now they are not a problem, just concentrate on not tipping over the trailer or crashing into anything. In fact turn onto the dirt road here (see third picture), then when Sandy Shores Airfield comes onto the mini-map merge onto that. When you get to the road start following the yellow GPS route. You can take out the motorcycles, that come at you head-on, by swerving into them. Avoid crushing them under the wheels of the trailer, they have a tendency to explode because of that. Once you get near the boatyard drive easy down the dirt road, even with angry bikers chasing you go easy. At the end of the road park in the yellow marker.

Protect the shipment

The timer’s gone now; you can relax. Except for the wave of bikers that are about to attack. Set up some Proximity Mines on the hill (see fourth picture) and take cover behind the wrecked van by the road. Use your assault rifle when they get in close. Use Snacks when you get low of health.

Go to the buyer

Once the last Lost gang member falls, go to the guy by the dock to finish the mission.

(At Rank 50, and thanks to DLC packs, you have everything you need to complete this mission Solo.)

(Having a friend come along doesn’t necessarily make it more complicated. They can run interference on the Lost motorcycles while you deliver the trailer.)

There definitely seems to be more enemies around the Trailer in next gen.

Pickup Sticks Removed

Unfortunately Pick Up Sticks, a mission added in the Independance Day Special Update, has been removed from the missions list for unknown reasons. This has been happening a lot lately. I am confident that this mission (despite it being difficult) can be done Solo. When it is added back I will do a walkthrough.

Pier Pressure

Given by: Gerald

Rank Unlocked: 6

Possible Pay (after patch 1.16): $9,400 (after patch 1.30): $6,890

Weapon(s) recommended: Heavy Pistol

Personal Vehicle recommended: Any

Best Place To Launch Mission: Mask Shop in Vespucci Beach

Steal the meth

Drive to the yellow maker. There are two entrances to the tunnel below the pier. It doesn’t really matter which direction you choose. However attacking from the south entrance would require something with more range than a pistol; unless you get in close, firing as you go. Apart from that just shoot every gunman you see then rush in to finish off the last few. Pick up the meth.

Deliver the meth to Gerald’s apartment

Get in your PV and drive to Gerald’s apartment. There is a chance that Lost gang members will come after you on motorcycles, but that’s not always the case. If they do you can easily avoid them.

(You can do this mission Solo at any Rank. It is one of the first ones given, and it’s pretty easy.)

Potshots

Given by: Misc (Trevor related)

Rank Unlocked: 25

Possible Pay (after patch 1.16): $7,310 (after patch 1.30): $4,880

Weapon(s) recommended: Pistol and shotgun

Personal Vehicle recommended: Sedan or anything four door

Best Place To Launch Mission: Does not matter

Steal the van

From where you spawn get in your PV (you might have to run around the barbed wire fence from here), and drive up the road. Either shoot or run over (then shoot…) the two gang members guarding the bridge. Then quickly park your PV sideways to block the bridge (see second picture). By this point the van should be making a run for it toward your position. Once it crashes into your vehicle take out the driver with a shotgun. Then get in the van.

Deliver the van to Trevor’s trailer

No enemy vehicles will come after you. Just drive the van to Trevor’s and park it in his garage.

(You have everything you need at Rank 25 to do this mission Solo.)

Quarry Quarry

Given by: Lester

Rank Unlocked: 30

Possible Pay (after patch 1.16): $19,800 (still the same after patch 1.30)

Weapon(s) recommended: sniper rifle, Grenade Launcher, assault rifle, Proximity Mines or Sticky Bombs, Tear Gas Grenades

Personal Vehicle recommended: Something fast

Best Place To Launch Mission: Convenience Store along the highway between Sandy Shores and the Humane Society

Steal the vans

There’s no particular order to steal these in since you have to take both. Go for the closest one first, take cover behind your PV and take out the gunmen with your assault rifle, be liberal with the Grenades if you choose to use explosives. You don’t want to blow up the van. Once the area is clear; re-heal and get in the van.

Deliver the van to Lester’s warehouse

Follow the GPS route out of the quarry and down the on-ramp to the highway. Some enemy Grangers should follow you down the on-ramp, drop a Proximity Mine or Sticky Bomb behind you, to take out the pursuers. Next use Grenades or Grenade Launcher on any more that respond. Once that’s taken care of get back in the van and take the long journey to Lester’s warehouse. Park in the yellow marker.

Steal the vans

Yep I know, don’t say it. Run out to the road and Request Your Personal Vehicle. I hope you took my advice and brought a fast one. Once you get back to the quarry go after the van parked down n the quarry itself. Drive up to the upper access road (see second picture) and shoot the enemies below with a sniper rifle. Once the majority have been taken out (the ones you can see) toss some Tear Gas down on the red dots out of view. Use your PV to get below quickly and safely. Get in the van.

Deliver the van to Lester’s warehouse

Pretty much the same long drive as last time but without the angry Grangers chasing you down. Stop in the yellow marker to end the mission.

(At Rank 30 you can substitute Grenade Launcher with just thrown Grenades. Everything else is pretty much the same.)

If you don’t like driving back and forth for ultra long distances, bring a friend along. It’s one of those kinds of missions.

Repo - Blow Up IV

Given By: Simeon

Rank Unlocked: 1

Possible Pay (after patch 1.46): $16,175

Weapon(s) recommend: Grenades/Grenade Launcher, Assault Rifle

Personal Vehicle recommended: Any

Best Place To Launch Mission: You Start at Simeon’s

Go To The Warehouse

Get in whatever vehicle you chose and drive to the Warehouse. Don’t drive directly to the yellow dot on the mini-map! Park nearby in one of the parking spots outside (trust me you’ll thank me later).

Destroy the Vehicles

Use Hand Grenades to blow up the marked cars. This is the same interior as a Vehicle Warehouse, so if you can’t find the last target it’s behind the officer where the mechanic hangs out.

Go to the basement

After you blow up the last car, go through the door, and down the stairs to where the special vehicles are parked in a Vehicle Warehouse. It’s marked as a yellow dot on the mini-map if you’re not familiar with the location.

Destroy the Special Vehicles

There’s four Special Vehicles to blow up; a Ruiner 2000, Armored Boxville, Phantom Wedge, and a Wastelander. Which by the way are probably the four most useful Special Vehicles to buy for the CEO/VIP Freemode Work. Use Grenades or set up four Sticky Bombs to destroy them at once.

Exit the warehouse

Head back upstairs, the way you came, to the main entrance of the Vehicle Warehouse.

Take out the incoming enemies

Take cover behind the crate to the right, as soon as the loading screen lets you (see screenshot). Use an Assault Rifle (Incendiary Ammo works pretty good), plus a Grenade Launcher on the vehicles, to kill the gang members. The game will eventually tell you to Leave The Area, but I suggest not leaving until they’re all dead. There’s only 20ish of them. Also eat Snacks because they have crazy accuracy stats.

Leave the Area

Once the area is clear get in your Personal Vehicle, which should still be there if listened to me about parking it first, and drive away.

(At Rank 1 this mission might be kind of rough solo. Actually you should hold off until you have at least have Grenades.)

Apart from the gunfight at the end, you really don't need a partner on this one.

That crate , in the middle of the picture, is a great place to take cover for the shootout.

Repo - Burn Rate

Given By: Simeon

Rank Unlocked: 1

Possible Pay (after patch 1.46): $13,872

Weapon(s) recommend: Fire Truck Cannon, a good assault rifle

Personal Vehicle recommended: Any

Best Place To Launch Mission: You Start at Simeon’s

Find a Fire Truck

When the mission begins you have two options to get a Fire Truck Call 911 on the in-game phone or wait for Simeon to mark one on the map for you. (See the screenshot for the nearest location).

Go to the Terminal

Once you have the Fire Truck drive to the terminal. Once you get there a five-minute timer will start.

Extinguish the fires

This part of the mission is like that annoying set-up mission in the Doomsday Heists, just not as stressful. Use the Water Cannon to not only put out the fires, but to also offensively take on the gang members. Also hold down the duck button to limit the amount of bullets hitting you. More importantly protect the Fire Truck from the Molotov throwing gangsters. If this blows up you’re s.o.l. Start from the furthest North fires, and work your way South from there. Keep an eye on the mini-map to know when the blue dots disappear.

Take out the remaining enemies

Once the last fire has been put out the fun begins. Any gang members you didn’t drown will have to be shot. So keep track of the red dots that you ignored while playing Backdraft. Simeon’s guards will help you with this part, and once the last enemy falls the mission is over.

(You can do this mission from any Rank, using any weapon, but it's faster with an assault rifle because of the range.)

The two Fire Truck locations Simeon marks on the map. The one with the marker over it is the one I'm referring to in the walkthrough.

Repo - Do you even lift?

Given By: Simeon

Rank Unlocked: 1

Possible Pay (after patch 1.46): $23,100 (may depend on damage done to vehicles during delivery)

Weapon(s) recommended: None

Personal Vehicle recommended: Any, having a personal Cargobob is also useful but really necessary

Best Place To Launch Mission: You Start at Simeon’s

Find A Cargobob

You can either call one in from Pegasus, or bring in a Personal Aircraft, but if you go to the nearest helipad (where Pegasus will spawn your Cargobob) there will be one parked already.

Steal A Target Vehicle

First press Right on the D-pad to drop the hook. Collect each car from A-D. The locations are slightly randomized each time, but always in the general neighborhood. However sometimes the car will be parked in an awkward position, such as too close to a structure or parked inside a garage. Preventing you from “swooping” in and easily flying the card back to the dropoff. In those cases just land nearby and drive the car into a more accessible position. At least within the driveway of whatever house the car has spawned at. You’ll have to find a climbable part of the wall to get onto the property as the gates will be locked.

Deliver the vehicle to the parking lot

Once you have hooked up the target vehicle fly it back to the parking garage neighboring Simeon’s dealership. Just press Right on the D-pad to drop the vehicle on the roof, from a low height. Once you’ve delivered all four, land the Cargobob, and park each one in the designated markers. The mission will be over the moment you park the fourth vehicle.

(You can do this mission from any Rank easily.)

Bringing a buddy along could make this mission go twice as fast.

These are the locations of the four vehicles. They all spawn in these general locations, but the house's driveway they appear in are different each time.

Repo - GTA Today II

Given By: Simeon

Rank Unlocked: 1

Possible Pay (after patch 1.46): $41,580

Weapon(s) recommend: An SMG

Personal Vehicle recommended: Something fast, then a personal helicopter and/or an Oppressor

Best Place To Launch Mission: You Start at Simeon’s

Because of the back-and-forth nature of this mission I’m not going to post the objectives in bold (this will also probably be some relief to my editor…). Before you even begin the mission you should own a fast helicopter; like a Buzzard or Sea Sparrow, in your Smuggler’s Run Hanger. This will come in handy later. Also call in a fast vehicle BEFORE you start the mission. That way it will be there when you start. You will have a 15 minute timer, which in most cases seems like a lot of time, but trust me it’s barely enough.

Start by going to vehicle A, it’s right up the road. It’s guarded by a few gang members. Drive fast to the docks, as you go go to your User Interface>Vehicles>Personal Aircraft>and select your helicopter of choice (hopefully a Buzzard, Havok, etc.) This will make it spawn by the ship at the North end of the docks (see first screenshot). It will also save you time as it takes a few seconds to spawn in.

Once you drop off vehicle A grab one of the Dilettantes parked nearby, or jack a random vehicle if it’s driving by, and take it to your Personal Aircraft. Fly to vehicle B BUT LAND RATHER THAN PARACHUTE, you’re going to need it again later. This vehicle is also guarded by some gang members, but unlike vehicle A just run and shoot. Don’t waste time trying to clear them out, enter vehicle B and haul ass to the docks.

Once you drop off vehicle B enter your User Interface>Vehicles>Request Personal Vehicle. Simeon will text you about two more vehicles to grab. This time drive to vehicle B on the map. It will be at the police station in Downtown. Approach the vehicle from the back (see second screenshot) to help you avoid too much of a shootout with the authorities. When you climb the wall quickly take out the two FIB agents or else they’ll shoot you as you try to peel away in the vehicle. On the way to the docks Call Lester to remove your three-star Wanted Level. Drive to the docks, and like before, request your personal helicopter as you head to the drop-off point. (If you have a personal Cargobob you could call that in for this next part).

Like before drive to your helicopter and, this time, fly to vehicle A. Land or jump, doesn’t matter this time, and enter the car. (Alternatively if you brought a Cargobob you could pluck the car right up from the parking garage.) Use the ramp straight ahead to get to street level faster. Race to the docks, you should have just enough time at this point. Yeah I know it’s a pretty empty “should”.

(You can start this mission at Rank 1, but you should wait until Rank 21 to unlock Lester's Remove Wanted Level ability. Which really helps on the second-half of this mission.)

This mission is possible solo, but I'll admit a second person would be really useful because of the time constraints.

Repo - RV Nearly There?

Given By: Simeon

Rank Unlocked: 1

Possible Pay (after patch 1.46): 20,739

Weapon(s) recommend: Assault Rifle, a Grenade, Proximity Mines, AP Pistol/A good SMG you can shoot from the driver's position

Personal Vehicle recommended: Something fast, you have a bit of a drive

Best Place To Launch Mission: You Start at Simeon’s

Steal The Brickcade

Drive to the RV dealership in Sandy Shores. After the drive park across the street and start shooting the rednecks in the parking lot. You'll have to navigate around the clustered Campers and Journeys to kill all of them. Run around the back of the building to get to Brickcade but don't get in yet. Enter the Camper parked directly in front and drive forward (pushing the Sandking) to park by the container straight ahead. Do this instead of just tossing a Grenade into the parked vehicles, it will prevent the Brickcade from taking damage. Trust me you're going to need it to have that full "health bar" later. A couple of truck loads of rednecks will come to the dealership to attack you. Fend them off then enter the Brickcade.

Deliver the Brickcade to the dealership

Follow the GPS until you get to the farmhouse in the screenshot below (which by the way has a great Bunker location in Free Roam). When you get here four trucks full of redneck gangsters will converge on you. Don't bother holding up somewhere to fight them off, they'll just keep coming (trust me I tried). The best course of action is to go off-road and make your way to the freeway. The trucks will spawn less here since Rockstar has a whole army coming after you on that dirt road. Use Proximity Mines and/or your favorite drive-by weapon to fend them off as you make your way back to Los Santos. Once you're within the city limits they will stop spawning. Thanks to the Brickcade's speed and ramming ability your best strategy is to just run from them while ramming other vehicles out of your way.

(You can do this mission from any Rank, don't even need explosives, however wait until Rank 5 to unlock the Micro SMG, but bring as much ammo as you can carry for it.)

When you get to about here, on the GPS selected dirt road, start following the open plains until you get to the freeway. It will help you avoid the army of redneck gangsters that give chase.

Repo - Sasquatched

Given By: Simeon

Rank Unlocked: 1

Possible Pay (after patch 1.46): $20,790

Weapon(s) recommend: AP Pistol, Grenade/Sticky Bomb/Pipe Bomb

Personal Vehicle recommended: Any

Best Place To Launch Mission: You Start at Simeon’s

Steal a Sasquatch

Drive to Maze Bank Arena and get in the Sasquatch. The only opposition is a lone security guard, but they’re nothing serious.

Destroy the vehicles

You will get a two-star Wanted Level. Drive to the rental car parking lot first and drive over the Dilettantes parked here. After this go after one or two of the vehicles that are mobile. If it turns into a chase you can use your AP Pistol to blow up the car from a distance. The Primo Customs parked at Benny’s shop are easy enough to blow up, but you’ll have to exit the Sasquatch and use a Grenade on that one, it’s inside Benny’s garage.

After you blow up the first set Simeon will text you, requesting you blow up some more. Repeat the same process as before. If the vehicle can’t touch the back tire of your Sasquatch shoot it with your AP Pistol. Save the Schysters for last, it’s the same situation as Benny’s. Use a Grenade on the one parked by the garage.

Deliver the Sasquatch to the docks

Okay NOW you can call Lester to Remove Your Wanted Level. Take the Sasquatch to the docks.

(You can do this mission from any Rank, however not every vehicle is accessible to the Sasquatch’s back tire. Wait until Rank 15 to unlock Grenades)

Bringing a friend along can make this mission go faster, and cut down on the travel time. The number of Sasquatches parked at the Maze Bank Arena is based on how many players are doing the mission.

Repo - Simeonomics

Given By: Simeon

Rank Unlocked: 1

Possible Pay (after patch 1.46): $18,480

Weapon(s) recommend: Silenced Pistol, Silenced Sniper Rifle

Personal Vehicle recommended: Something fast

Best Place To Launch Mission: You Start at Simeon’s

Go to LSIA

Drive to the airport, but don’t get too close to the North security gate. Otherwise the guard there will immediately get spooked and you’ll get a three-star Wanted Level.

Steal a target vehicle

Using a silenced Sniper Rifle, and/or pistol, take out every guard and baggage handler between you and the airplane with the target vehicles. Their cones of vision will be on your mini map, you don’t have to kill every guard, but the ones on the way to the airplane are the most crucial. Go through the first tunnel on the left. There will be patrolling guards here. If you shoot one and the other gets alerted you’ll have a few seconds to rectify the situation. If you are careful you can get to the plane, and enter the first car, before anyone knows you’re there. In fact ideally no one should spot you at all if you shoot every guard within eye sight of the plane.

Take the vehicle to the dealership

Drive to Simeon’s dealership. If you got a three-star Wanted Level you can call Lester, however you will be so far into the belly of the airplane that you can technically “hide” until you “lose the cops”, but you will get a one/two-star Wanted Level as you escape from the airport. THEN you should call Lester while you’re on the highway, no big deal.

Steal a target vehicle (again)

Request Your Person Vehicle and drive back to the other target vehicle. If everything went right with your stealth you can drive directly to the plane, get out, and enter the Nero Custom parked inside. If not you’ll get another Wanted Level….

Take the vehicle to the dealership (again)

This time you’ll just have a one/two-star Wanted Level. No need to call Lester, just drive to the dealership, you should Lose The Cops in an alley on the way there easily.

(Wait until at least Rank 5 to unlock the Suppressor for the Pistol. You really should have a Sniper Rifle, with a Suppressor, but a Pistol should be enough.)

You know those annoying Heist set-up Missions, where you and a "partner" have to stealth their way through an area without alerting anyone? You know how they always end up alerting somebody? Yeah... Do this one solo.

Take this tunnel to the left once getting past the security gate. (Note: Actual mission will take place at night.)

Repo - Under The Hammer

Given By: Simeon

Rank Unlocked: 1

Possible Pay (after patch 1.46): $13,680

Weapon(s) recommend: None

Personal Vehicle recommended: Something tall like an SUV

Best Place To Launch Mission: You Start at Simeon’s

Go to the police station

Get a fast SUV and park by the section of wall in the first screenshot.

Steal a target vehicle

Climb on top of your SUV, then onto the nearby roof. Steal the Turismo Classic down below. You will get a three-star Wanted Level and a lot of angry cops shooting at you.

Lose the cops/Deliver the vehicle to the docks

Unfortunately you cannot call Lester on this mission, trust me I’ve tried. However driving between the containers, at the docks, and “hiding” there will keep the helicopters from spotting you (see second screenshot). After you’ve lost the police drive to the yellow marker.

Steal a target vehicle/Lose the cops/Deliver the vehicle to the docks (again)

Request Your Personal Vehicle and drive back to the police station. Head right in and jack the Infernus Classic. Once again you’ll get a three-star Wanted Level. As before park between the containers, at the docks, in order to lose the police. Then just drive to the yellow marker to end the mission.

(You can do this mission from any Rank.)

Rich Men In Richman

Given by: Simeon

Rank Unlocked: 5

Possible Pay (after patch 1.16): $12,810 (still the same after patch 1.30)

Weapon(s) recommended: SMG

Personal Vehicle recommended: Something fast

Best Place To Launch Mission: The Gulf activity marker in Richman

Go to Richman Mansion

Drive to the mansion and park your car out of the way of the front gate. Also equip your SMG.

Hack the keypad

Go up to the keypad on the left end of the gate. Luckily in this mission it’s only half of the hacking process. Select BruteForce.exe and do the minigame.

Repo the cars

Shoot your way up the driveway, taking out any security guards that you have to along the way. This will unfortunately give you a three-star Wanted Level. Get in the Stinger GT.

Lose the cops

Peel out of the mansion grounds and drive toward the underground tunnel here (see first and second pictures). Here you can hide from them well enough to lose them without the mask trick or calling Lester.

Deliver the car to the dealership

Drive back out of the tunnel (going the way you came in) and just follow the yellow GPS route to the dealership. Park in the yellow marker.

Repo the cars

I’m not even going to bother making fun of complaining about repeating objectives Solo. Be use to this by now! Request your Personal Vehicle and drive all the way back to Richman Mansion. Use Quick GPS to make a route if you wish. Once you get back to the mansion steal the Super Diamond.

Lose the cops

You will get an automatic two-star Wanted Level, and I find the Super Diamond to be like a tank (the default one without upgrades anyway), so have Lester take care of the cops this time. OR repeat the hide-in-the-underground-tunnels approach.

Deliver the car to the dealership

Once the cops are off your back park next to the Stinger GT back at the dealership.

(Wait until Rank 21 when you have Lester’s Remove Wanted Level ability. It makes the mission go faster and easier.)

If you’re not a fan of running from the cops bring another pair of hands along. Of course waiting for THEM to lose the cops isn’t any more fun.

Rockford Roll

Rank Unlocked: 5

Possible Pay (after patch 1.16): $4,580 (still the same after patch 1.30)

Weapon(s) recommended: None

Personal Vehicle recommended: Any

Best Place To Launch Mission: The Clothing Store in Rockford Hills

Steal the Cabrio

Put a Quick GPS on the Cabrio, or if you started the mission where I suggested just drive down the street to the hotel. The Cabrio will be parked by the main entrance. Get in.

Lose the cops

Once you get in the Cabrio you will receive a two-star Wanted Level. Drive out of the hotel and head for the nearby parking garage (see picture). If you can try to do the mask trick do so. Once you get ahead of any pursuing cruisers. Go up to the top level. The Wanted Level should be flashing at this point so watch the direction of the blue cones. If you think you’re about to be spotted, before your Wanted Level goes down, use the Stunt Jump (see second picture) to escape the roof.

Deliver the Cabrio to the dealership

Use the Stunt Jump to get to street level faster. The dealership is just around the corner from where you land. Stop in the yellow marker to end the mission.

(At Rank 5 this mission is doable Solo. Actually at any Rank you can do this mission Solo if you know how the Wanted Level system works.)
