Gold Medal Objectives

There are no Gold Medal objectives for this mission.

Mission Synopsis

The trio will meet up with Lester to plan their next heist. Lester will give them two methods of approaching the score, the Subtle Approach and the Obvious Approach.

After choosing the approach, players will have to choose which gunmen to hire for the job.

If players want the biggest possible take from the heist, they should choose the Obvious Approach. If players choose the Subtle Approach, they will have to pay $300,000 in bribes, $30,000 in upgrades and require one additional crew member.

The crew that you want to hire will be:

  • Taliana Martinez as Driver #1 for the helicopter
  • Karmi Denz as Driver #2 for the train
  • Daryl Johns and either Norm Richards or Hugh Welsh for the two gunmen.

Trevor and Michael will continue to bicker after finalizing the plan and Lester has to step in to break them up. Lester will leave the room and the mission ends.
