GTA 5: How to Complete All Five Assassination Missions

Published 5 months, 3 weeks ago by Bill Lavoy

Grand Theft Auto 5, like its predecessor GTA 4, features a series of assassination missions. There are a total of five, which can only be completed by Franklin and are assigned to him by Lester. Today we are going to cover all five Assassination missions and guide you to Gold completion. 

In the cut scene that introduces each assignment, Lester will give Franklin tips about which companies to invest in, and which should be avoided on the two in-game stock markets. This information is nothing short of insider trading, and if done correctly, players can earn more than $150 million for each of the three playable characters. With that in mind, we recommend that you do not complete any of the assassination missions prior to finishing the fourth and final heist in Grand Theft Auto 5, The Big Score! Waiting until you receive the money from this heist will help you maximize your profits on the stock market.

Gold Completion Requirements

-Sniper Kill Bonus

-Money Earned

Prior to beginning this mission, players should invest all of their money into Betta Pharmaceuticals, which can be found on the BAWSAQ stock exchange. Be sure to do this with all three of the playable characters.

After the cut scene, head to the right from the bench you were on. If you don't have a vehicle nearby, steal one. Once you have a ride, follow the yellow route on your radar until you reach the hotel. Head inside the parking garage and into the marker to trigger on-screen instructions.

When you regain control of Franklin, get back into the vehicle and head to the top floor of the parking garage. There is a countdown timer in the bottom right indicating when the target will leave the hotel, but you should have plenty of time. Park your car near the edge of the garage closest to the target and climb on top of it for a better view. In order to obtain the Gold completion status, you need to kill the target with your sniper rifle. It would also be wise to fit the weapon with a suppressor to avoid detection and a Wanted Level.

When the counter reaches zero, the target will exit the hotel. Take him out before he gets to the SUV. Try placing your crosshair just in front of him and let him walk into the shot. Once the target is down, get back into your vehicle. Drive clockwise around the top of the parking garage and head towards the north side of the roof. Gain as much speed as possible and hit the Stunt Jump to make your escape. Try to slightly angle your vehicle to the left side to avoid crashing into the bleachers. Once you clear the area, you'll receive the notice of Gold completion and a cool $9,000.

Prior to beginning this mission, players should invest all of their money into Debonaire, which can be found on the Liberty City National stock exchange. Be sure to do this with all three of the playable characters.

Once the cut scene is complete, jump in your car (or borrow one) and make sure you have a sniper rifle for this mission. Equip the one that has a suppressor and follow the red GPS route indicated on your radar. Notice that you have a countdown timer in the bottom right corner. You need to complete this mission in the allotted time to avoid failure. You're headed to Vespucci Beach to assassinate a body builder. The target will show up as a red dot on your radar. Stop just before the beach, exit your vehicle and take aim with your Sniper Rifle. Take the target down with a headshot and get back in your car.

Each time you take down one of the targets, you'll get an updated red route marked on your GPS. The second target is to the north, on a yacht off the coast of Pacific Bluffs near the Pipeline Inn. Head there quickly, keeping the countdown timer in the back of your mind. There is a little bit of room for error, so don't worry too much if you get in the odd car accident. Once you arrive near the target's location, look at your radar. You might see the red indicator on your radar skip. He's off the cost on a yacht, and it looks like he's having a good time. Take aim with your suppressed Sniper Rifle and take him down. Head back to your car and on to the next target.

The third target is in West Vinewood, by the Eclipse Medical Tower. Lester tells you to look for dirty windows. Your target will be on a lift, washing windows. The red marker at his location lets you know he's above you. Just as you did before, exit your vehicle, take aim with your suppressed sniper rifle and take the target down with a headshot. Get back in your car and prepare to head to the next target.

The final target is on a Bati bike, and he's moving. Follow the red route marked on your GPS. Move as quickly as possible, but don't be afraid to slow down to avoid collisions. The target won't run unless you give him a reason. Pick up as much speed as possible and use your car to ram into his bike. He should fall off and die. If not, run him over again or get out and shoot him. Soon after, Franklin will give Lester a call and let him know the job is done. If you followed our guide, and moved quickly, you should have obtained the Gold completion for this mission, along with a cool $7,000.

-Clean Escape Bonus

-Money Earned

Prior to beginning this mission, players should invest all of their money into Fruit, which can be found on the BAWSAQ stock exchange. Be sure to do this with all three of the playable characters.

After the cut scene, grab a vehicle and follow the blue GPS route on your radar. You don't have a countdown timer, but it's never a bad idea to move quickly and lower your completion time. Once you get close to your destination, Franklin will spot the prostitute. Drive up on the hill on the opposite side of the street from the girl. Exit your vehicle and equip your sniper rifle with a suppressor. In order to achieve gold completion, you must escape without a wanted level. Zoom in on the prostitute who will be approached by several vehicles. If she turns the would-be customers away, they aren't your mark. 

Wait until a convertible approaches. If the prostitute starts to get into the car, take the man down with a headshot. Immediately get in your car and leave the area. If you used the sniper rifle equipped with the suppressor, you shouldn't have a wanted level. Once you're a short distance away from the scene, Franklin will place a phone call to Lester letting him know the job is complete. If you followed our guide, you should receive the notification for Gold completion, as well as $5,000.

After completing this mission, players should invest money into Vapid, which can be found on the BAWSAQ stock exchange. Be sure to do this with all three of the playable characters.

Following the cut scene, grab a vehicle and head to the bus depot by following the blue route on your radar. Get on the bus and follow the now yellow route on your radar to the first bus stop. Move along the marked route, making all the stops until the target boards the bus. Franklin will address him as Mr. Penny. The target will exit the bus and steal a bike. In order to achieve Gold completion, you need to use the bus to kill him. Follow the target and run him over when the opportunity presents itself. As long as the bus kills the target (and not Mr. Penny hitting a wall as a result of the bus) you will earn the Gold completion. Once you're done, exit the bus and leave the area. Franklin calls Lester to confirm that the mission is complete and receives $7,000 for his trouble.

Prior to beginning this mission, players should invest all of their money into Gold Coast, which can be found on the Liberty City National stock exchange. Be sure to do this with all three of the playable characters.

After the cut scene, grab a vehicle and follow the yellow route on your GPS. Drive into the marker to trigger the mission, but do not go in through the front entrance. Drive around the block to Adam's Apple Boulevard. Drive your vehicle through the back entrance and run down the lone gunman standing guard. Drive a few more feet until you see the ramp to the elevator. Be careful, there's one more bad guy just to your left. As you exit your vehicle, equip a weapon with a suppressor and take him down.

Enter the elevator and press the right directional pad to go up. Once the elevator stops, hop off and prepare for battle. There's a total of six guards on this level. Continue to move up using the ample cover. Peek out and take enemies down one at a time as they present themselves. Don't hesitate to toss grenades to dig bad guys out of hard-to-reach places. There's no need to expose yourself to danger. 

Once you've taken down the sixth gunman, head for the elevator indicated by the yellow dot on your radar. Be careful, there's two additional gunman on it, so take them down quickly and hop aboard. Take another ride, this time to the top floor.

When the elevator stops, immediately take cover behind the Grade C Construction Ply directly in front of you. There will be several bad guys engaging you. Peek from behind cover and take them down one-by-one. Your target, Enzo Benelli, is on the helicopter. Try to take it down with an RPG, but if you miss, just shoot the pilot using whatever weapons you prefer. Taking the helicopter down is part of the Gold Completion, so don't miss this part. Even with the target down, there might be a few stragglers. Take them down if they're a threat, otherwise it's time to leave the area. 

You should notice a parachute on the ground next to you. If you have one, don't worry about it. If not, grab it. Run to the edge of the building and jump off. You can only free fall for a few seconds before you pull the chute. Try to avoid hitting light posts and buildings; it would be a shame to die now. Once you land, Franklin will call Lester to let him know the job is done. Being the final mission of the assassination chain, the $10,000 reward is very fitting. 

If you followed our guide for this, as well as all the other assassination missions, you should have the Gold completion for each one. In addition, you should be extremely rich, allowing you to buy all the property available to the three playable characters in Grand Theft Auto 5.
