Mission Can Be Triggered By: Franklin
Soon after Franklin leaves his house, Simeon calls to offer more repo work. A mission contact icon flashes on Franklin’s map, a green “S”. Retrieve Franklin’s car from his garage (or jack another car, if you want) and follow the “S” to the alley behind Simeon’s dealership on Adam’s Apple Boulevard. Enter the dealership workshop to trigger a cutscene: Simeon bestows an award on Franklin, and Lamar is not happy about it. (“I demand a retrial!”) Then the dealer offers another repo job. The new target is a tricked-out motorcycle, purchased by a Vespucci Beach resident named Esteban Jimenez.
Go to Vespucci Beach.
Lamar automatically walks out to the back alley and hops into the front passenger seat of whatever car Franklin parked there. Join him in Franklin’s car or, instead, jack the speedy Vapid Bullet that’s also parked in the alley. (lf you switch cars, wait until Lamar gets in before driving off.)
Follow the yellow route to your Vespucci Beach destination. En route, Franklin recalls that the bike purchaser was not just some.regular guy, but a tattooed Vagos gangster. This suggests that the repossession may not be a walk in the park. When you drive into the yellow marker on Melanoma Street next to the Vespucci Tattoos shop, Franklin automatically stops the car and Lamar hops out”
Now Lamar is marked as a blue blip on your radar. Exit the car and follow him to the tall fence. Use the Climb button indicated onscreen to scale the fence. Keep walking with Lamar past the drunk to the end of the alley where three garages are marked as yellow blips on your radar. Search the garages.
Approach the garage door on the right and Franklin automatically pulls it open, triggering a quick cutscene. Some of the Vagos want to know what’s up. ln response, Lamar starts a firefight by gunning down the lead gangster. Franklin isn’t armed, so the odds don’t look too oood.
Pick up a weapon.
Obviously, Franklin needs a weapon. Hustle to grab the pistol (circled in our screenshot) dropped by the fallen gangster. Just walk over the gun to pick it up. Use the controls indicated onscreen to bring up Franklin,s weapon wheel, then highlight and select the Pistol. Now you can help Lamar fight.
Take out the Vagos.
Quickly take cover behind the cinderblock wall across the alley from Lamar and start shooting. Make your first target the fuel tank (circled in our screenshot) raised on the red scaffolding platform behind the blue porlable toilet. A direct hit detonates the tank, and the explosion takes out any nearby Vagos.
As you wipe out each cluster of hostile gunmen, Lamar automatically pushes forward to the next cover location. you can move behind him or fight your way forward in tandem, working up both sides of the alley. Always run to fallen Vagos and pick up any ammo or new weapons they’ve dropped.
Watch out f or a pair of shooters posted up high on balconies to the right.
When you get near the halfway point of the alley, some Vagos make an escape attempt in a blue car. As the car fishtails away, it leaves a trail of gasoline from its punctured gas tank. Shoot at the gas trail on the ground to ignite it, then watch as the flame trail reaches the car and explodes. This may take out all remaining Vagos, but it’s not a given, so check your radar for red blips ahead before proceeding down the alley.
Get the bike.
Once the last Vagos gangster falls and you get past the burning car, Lamar spots Esteban Jimenez on the motorcycle that Simeon wants repossessed, accelerating away on the street. Sprint hard down the alley, climb the fence at the end (same one you climbed earlier), and race back to your car parked on Melanoma Street. Hop in the vehicle and pursue the fleeing bike.
Once again, do not leave without Lamar! Note that the moiorcycle is marked as a blue blip on your radar, not red.
This merely indicates that the bike itself is not a ,’target,,-you don,t want to actually destroy the bike, just repossess it in decent shape. However, its rider is fair game. Your goal is to either shoot or ram Esteban off the bike.
Use your “drive-by shooting” controls (as indicated onscreen) to aim and fire your gun as you steer.
Remember to use Franklin’s special ability to slow down time for easier targeting or sharper turns.
When you finally take out Esteban, exit your car and mount the bike. Lamar tells Franklin to meet up at the car wash, then drives off in the car.
Go to the car wash.
Follow the yellow route to the Hands On Car Wash , just behind Franklin’s house – Lamar is waiting in the parking lot. Pull up next to him to trigger the mission-ending scene: Lamar decides to keep the bike for himself, leaving Franklin with nothing for his repo efforts.
