Strangers and Freaks Missions (Continued)

Rampage 3 (Chamberlain Hills)

Start Location: On a street corner in Chamberlain Hills, south Los Santos.

Initiated By: Trevor

Optional Objective/s:
Kill Count - Kill 50 enemies within the time limit.
Headshots - Achieve 6 headshot kills.
Demolition - Destroy 2 vehicles.

Walkthrough:

Similar to the previous rampage, we need to essentially keep Trevor alive for 2 minutes whilst using the assault rifle provided to wipe out as many enemies as possible.

The easiest way I found to do this was to hold your ground at the start until the first vehicle comes down the alley way to attack you. Kill its occupants and then use it as cover to peek down the alleyway. From here pop out and shoot the enemies on the rooftops further along and those that approach on foot.

Keep in mind, this position is not entirely perfect as the occasional gangster will still come up and attack you from the street behind you, but as long as you have one eye on the mini-map it is possible to see when they are coming, turn and shoot them without much difficulty.

Once the time has elapsed, the mission will be completed.

Reward/s and Unlocks:

  • N/A.

Rampage 4 (Great Chaparral)

Start Location: On a street corner in Great Chaparral, north of Los Santos.

Initiated By: Trevor

Optional Objective/s:
Kill Count - Kill 45 enemies within the time limit.
Headshots - Achieve 6 headshot kills.
Demolition - Destroy 2 tanks.

Walkthrough:

Similar to the previous rampage, we need to essentially keep Trevor alive for 3 minutes whilst using the grenade launcher provided to wipe out as many soldiers as possible (the minimum for completion is 35).

The easiest way I found to do this was to run over to the large brick wall on the left hand side of the road and used this as cover. From here pop out and shoot the enemies on the road and any vehicles that come into your view. When the tanks come, simply stay at the edge of the wall and blind fire grenades at them until they blow up. If it gets too hot along one side of the wall, or if a tank manages to get a line on you whilst you are in cover, simply run down to the other end of the wall and peek out from there.

Once the time has elapsed, the mission will be completed.

Reward/s and Unlocks:

  • N/A.

Rampage 5 (Mirror Park)

Start Location: In front of the ‘Cool Beans' café in Mirror park, east Los Santos.

Initiated By: Trevor

Optional Objective/s:
Kill Count - Kill 30 enemies within the time limit.
Headshots - Achieve 10 headshot kills.
Demolition - Destroy 2 vehicles.

Walkthrough:

Similar to the previous rampage, we need to essentially keep Trevor alive for 2 minutes whilst using the sawed-off shotgun provided to wipe out as many hipsters as possible (the minimum for completion is 20).

This one is not too difficult, just use the cover on offer near the entrance to the café and use your mini-map to spot and eliminate enemies as they get into close proximity. As always, work at knocking over the head shots and the vehicle kills as quickly as possible to complete the optional objectives at your earliest convenience.

Once the time has elapsed, the mission will be completed.

Note: For completing the fifth and final Rampage, you'll earn the achievement/trophy ‘Red Mist'.

Reward/s and Unlocks:

  • N/A.

Strangers and Freaks - Letter Scraps

There is a total of 50 Letter Scraps that have been hidden in various locales in the city of Los Santos and its surrounds. The Letter Scraps will appear in game from the very start and any of the three playable characters are able to find and pick up these collectibles. Although they themselves are not a Strangers and Freaks mission like the Spaceship Parts or the Submarine Parts, they will lead to a Strangers and Freaks mission.

Finding and accumulating all 50 Letter Scraps will unlock a new 'Strangers and Freaks' mission for you - 'A Starlet in Vinewood'.

Completing this mission will unlock the achievement/trophy - 'A Mystery Solved'.

Here are some useful links to help you complete this side-quest chain:

A Starlet in Vinewood

Note: this mission requires that you find and pick up all 50 of the Letter Scrap collectibles scattered across the world map.

Start Location: A mansion in the eastern part of Vinewood Hills.

Initiated By: Franklin

Optional Objective/s:
Cut! – Kill the target.

Walkthrough:

This is a fairly short mission. After collecting all 50 letter scraps, a mission marker will appear on the world map. Once you arrive at the start location a scene will play.

After the scene ends, you will have a choice between killing the target and letting him live.

He will run off after the cut-scene, so you will have to chase him down in a car and kill him in whatever usual manner you traditionally use in such circumstances… if you wish to do so. Note that you must kill him to complete the optional objective – ‘Cut!'.

After he is dead, or he has put sufficient distance between himself and Franklin to escape, the mission will be complete.

Note: For completing this mission, you'll earn the achievement/trophy – ‘A Mystery Solved'.

Reward/s and Unlocks:

  • N/A.

Strangers and Freaks - Abigail

Abigail can be found at the Sonar Collection Depot (available for purchase following the ‘The Merryweather Heist' mission). Once the property has been purchased a blue '?' will appear here. Head over to the marker and chat with Abigail to begin the quest.

Speaking with her for the first time will have the 30 Submarine Parts collectibles spawn in the waters surrounding the world map. Here you can take the submarine or the dinghy with the SCUBA suit to track them down.

Finding and picking up all 30 Submarine Parts will unlock the second of Abigail's 'Strangers and Freaks' mission – ‘What Lies Beneath'.

Only Michael can start these mission.

Here is a list of her missions:

Death at Sea

Start Location: Sonar Collection Depot once you purchase it.

Initiated By: Michael

Optional Objective/s:
N/A - There are no optional objectives in this mission.

Walkthrough:

After the chat at the start of the mission a dinghy will be available for use at the depot here. When you jump into the dinghy, if you look at the world map, green circles will appear where you will be able to find submarine pieces. Head over to each of these circles and dive underwater to find the pieces required. There are 30 in total.

For a complete list of their locations, please check out the collectible locations guide for the Submarine Parts below:

  • Submarine Parts collectible locations guide.

Reward/s and Unlocks:

  • N/A.

What Lies Beneath

Note: You must have obtained all 30 Submarine Parts to start this mission.

Start Location: Abigail at the Sonar Collection Depot.

Initiated By: Michael

Optional Objective/s:
N/A - There are no optional objectives in this mission.

Walkthrough:

Upon collecting all 30 Submarine Parts, return to Abigail at the Sonar Collection Depot. Once the scene is complete, the mission will be complete and she'll fork over a whole $10 for your efforts.

At this point, you can either let her go, kill her and take her car (it's a one of a kind Declasse Asea) or follow her. If you do follow her, she'll eventually make it to the airport where she'll call the police on you for stalking her!

Any of those permutations listed above will successfully end the mission.

Reward/s and Unlocks:

  • Vehicle: Access to a unique vehicle the Declasse Asea if you kill her and take her car.
  • $10 for Franklin.


Strangers and Freaks - Omega

Omega is a bit of an odd fellow who lives out in the desert and has a proclivity towards aliens, conspiracy theories and the like. Similar to the other collectible-related Strangers and Freaks chains (Abigail and Letter Scraps) Omega has a grand total total of two missions for you to undertake. He appears as a green '?' on the first meeting and a '?O' for the second and his two missions can only be initiated by Franklin.

Speaking with him for the first time will have the 50 Spaceship Part collectibles spawn on the world map, and they are strewn fairly liberally Los Santos and its surrounds. Finding and picking up all 50 Spaceship Parts will unlock the second of his 'Strangers and Freaks' mission - 'The Final Frontier'.

Note: Completing this mission chain will unlock the achievement/trophy 'Out of this World'.

Here is a list of his missions:

Far Out

Start Location: At Omega's place, outside a caravan on a dirt trail at the northern end of Ron Alternates Wind Farm.

Initiated By: Franklin

Optional Objective/s:
N/A - There are no optional objectives in this mission.

Walkthrough:

Shortly after Trevor arrives in Los Santos during the events of the story in ‘Friends Reunited' campaign mission, a green '?' will appear on the world map over near sandy Shores. Head over here with Franklin to start this mission.

After chatting with Omega, 50 Spaceship Part collectibles will have now spawned around theworld map. Our task is to find, acquire and return all 50 of them to him.

For a complete list of their locations, please check out the collectible locations guide for the Spaceship Parts below:

  • Spaceship Parts collectible locations guide.

Reward/s and Unlocks:

  • N/A.

The Final Frontier

Note: You must have obtained all 50 spaceship parts to start this mission.

Start Location: At Omega's place, outside a caravan on a dirt trail at the northern end of Ron Alternates Wind Farm.

Initiated By: Franklin

Optional Objective/s:
N/A - There are no optional objectives in this mission.

Walkthrough:

Upon collecting all 50 Spaceship Parts, a green 'O?' mission marker will appear on the map at Ron Alternate's Wind Farm. Head over there and chat with Omega once more for a scene.

Once the scene is complete, the mission will be complete.

Note: For completing this mission, you'll earn the ‘From Beyond the Stars' achievement/trophy.

Reward/s and Unlocks:

  • Vehicle: Access to a unique vehicle the Space Docker.

Strangers and Freaks - The Last One

Note: This Strangers and Freaks mission will only unlock after completing the game to 100% completion. It can only be attempted by Franklin.

Start Location: A green ‘?' marker in the Chilliad Mountain State Wilderness area in the northwest corner of the map, just southwest of Paleto Bay.

Optional Objective/s:
Mr Green – Go to the scat site on foot.
Hunter – Kill four animals whilst chasing the Sasquatch.
Wounded – Shoot the Sasquatch three times before catching it.

Walkthrough:

Once you have completed the game to 100% completion (check out how to get to that milestone here – 100% completion checklist) this Strangers and Freaks mission marker will appear in the Chilliad Mountain State Wilderness area in the northwest corner of the map, just to the southwest of Paleto Bay. Note that it may not appear instantly and can take several days to appear, so don't despair if it doesn't show up right away.

When it does show up, head for the mission marker to find a hunter. When approached, he will ask Franklin for some help in taking down a hunting target that he's been after for years (Also, I'm pretty sure this is the same hunter we met in Red Dead Redemption – Undead Nightmare but could be mistaken). Following the scene our objectives will update.

When you are back in control, we'll need to go and investigate a scat site. From the hunter's position, take the dirt path leading downwards. Continue along the dirt trail to the bottom of the hill and you reach a large yellow search area, being sure to leave your vehicle behind and go on foot for the ‘Mr. Green' optional task.

When you arrive at the search area, make your way to the very centre of the yellow circle on the mini-map and atop a hill here you'll find some animal dung.

Approach the dung and you'll hear a howl, make your way to the west towards the noise to see a humanoid creature running off. Shoot him once at this point and he'll quickly manage to esacape.

Once he escapes, again listen for and approach the howling to locate the creature again. Each time you locate the creature, attempt to shoot him before he runs off. It should be noted that you need to shoot him at least three times for the ‘Wounded' optional task. As you do move through the forest during this stage, be sure to look out for and kill four animals for the ‘Hunter' optional objective (he'll often run through areas infested with mountain lions, so the animals may come to you!).

Once you have tracked the creature down and followed him long enough, he'll stay in one spot and surrender. Shoot it once more at this point for a scene.

Reward/s and Unlocks:

  • N/A.

Enhanced Edition Exclusive Missions

In addition to the obvious graphic overhaul, the Enhanced version of Grand Theft Auto V released for Xbox One and Playstation 4 (and soon to the PC) features a number of gameplay enhancements and additions, new vehicles, collectibles, Random Events and a few new extra side-missions.

There are two major new missions and they are only available to players who have purchased the PlayStation 4/Xbox One version of the game after previously having played grand Theft Auto V on the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. They include:

Murder Mystery

One of the newer additions to the updated version of Grand Theft Auto V for the next generation is the murder Mystery. This side-mission is exclusively for Michael and can be attempted following the completion of the ‘Repossession' campaign mission.

In order to begin the mission, you'll need to discover a set of four cryptic written clues scrawled on walls and hidden around Los Santos. They can be found in the following locations:

  • City Hall, Alta – This can be found on the west corner of the City Hall building in Alta which is across the street to the east of the large construction site in the district. The message is on the lower level of the building, underneath a lamp fitting on a wall which can be found between a section of metallic balcony fence above and a short set of stairs below which lead to a courtyard accessible from the road. The message reads: ”Fred makes cartoons for kids, funny thing considering what he did.”
  • The Gentry Manor Hotel, West Vinewood – The Gentry Manor Hotel is located a block north of where you meet Beverly for the first time as Franklin – it can be found across the road to the west of the Up-n-Atom and on the opposite corner from the WTF shop. It is located on the eastern side of the hotel grounds in an area with five smaller buildings with a narrow pond running between them. It can be found on the southwestern most building on a wall facing the pond. The message reads: “Old Fred acts nice, but it ain't so!”
  • Chinese Theatre, Downtown Vinewood – The Chinese Theatre is located next door to the Cinema Doppler purchasable property and the Tattoo Parlour in Downtown Vinewood. The message is scrawled on a wall behind some palm trees in the corner to the left of the entrance, to the left of a sign for ‘Bitch in the Trunk' which is close to the ticket office for this cinema. The message reads: “Ain't no mystery. They drowned her because of what she knew!”
  • Galileo Observatory, Vinewood Hills – This message can be found on the southern wall of the observatory building by a security camera. The message reads: “David Richards knows.”

After finding all four of the clues around Los Santos, you should get a prompt indicating that you should look for the body of the woman mentioned in the cryptic messages. She can be found in the deep water just off the coast from Fort Zancudo on the sea floor – she has a concrete block encasing her feet and a hood on. You'll need to grab a SCUBA suit or submarine to explore the location without the frustration of constantly surfacing for air.

The next portion of the Murder Mystery can only be undertaken after completing the ‘Meltdown' campaign mission. This is because you'll need access to Richard's Majestic film studio lot in order to progress. Once you have access to the film lot, if you visit it after 9:00PM, you should find a yellow objective marker on the ground by Solomon's office.

Enter the office and examine the letter on his desk. This will update your objectives with a new location that we'll now be able to explore.

We'll need to now go and explore an old, abandoned mineshaft in Great Chaparral and as we'll be exploring a dark area soon, if you don't have one, visit the Ammu-Nation to equip one of your weapons with a flashlight attachment.

The mineshaft itself can be located on a pair of switchbacks along the road just south of the Ammu-nation in Great Chaparral. After going around the second hairpin turn, keep an eye on the cliff face to the right. You should be able to spot an abandoned mining tunnel with a blocked entrance. Use an explosion on this to bring down the obstruction.

Proceed into the mine shaft with your flashlight and follow it to the end to find a corpse on the floor. Finding this corpse will complete the mission.

Reward/s and unlocks:

  • Contact: Isaac is now a contact in each character's phone.
  • Filters: You'll unlock a pair of filters for both the game and the camera. With the contact above now in our phones, we can call Isaac on the phone to activate filters. Call him again to cycle through normal, film grain and sepia filters.

Wildlife Photography Challenge

One of the newer additions to the updated version of Grand Theft Auto V for the next generation is Franklin's Wildlife Photography Challenge. After completing all six of Beverley's Strangers and Freaks missions he'll send you an email saying that he's entered you into a photography contest to track down and take photos of all the land animals in San Andreas county.

The rules according to an email you recive are as follows:

  • Only photograph submissions of living animals will be accepted
  • Animals must be centred in the photograph.
  • Photographs captured using camera filters or borders will not be eligible for submission
  • Selfies are NOT eligible for submission
  • All image rights are transferred to Tourist Board

Essentially, we'll need to track down and take photographs of each animal using the Snapmatic app on the smartphone, being sure to take photos of live animals and zoom in or out to keep the animal centred on the screen without anything blocking it. After taking a photo, head to your phone and email it to the LS Tourism Board email address.

There are 20 animals in total and for finding and photographing all 20, you'll earn the Kraken submersible vehicle which will now spawn at the Cape Catfish pier.

The animals can be found in the following locations:

Random Events

In addition to the more in depth side-quests that we have spoken about so far, there are a few generic, not so interesting side-quests that we also need to complete in order to earn our 100%. These feature tasks for random people located all over the world map.

There are 60 of these 'Random Events' (57 in the normal edition, with 3 exclusive to the Enhanced Edition) and the mission tasks range from giving people a lift, to hunting down and killing thieves and investigating abandoned vehicles. The 60 'Random Events' fall into one of the 34 different categories listed below. These are all relatively straightforward and can be picked up as soon or as late as you feel like completing them. If you fail or miss one, don't worry, they will appear at the same location, time and place the next day.

It should be noted that Trevor has the ability to take people who get into his car to the Altruist Cult. This action can be used to access their compound on the upper reaches of west Mount Chiliad to earn an achievement/trophy 'Altruist Acolyte'.

Without further ado, here is a list of the 33 different objective types. Use the links beside each to jump down to walkthroughs for each event that includes start locations, how to complete each, any rewards offered and any additional notes.

Here are some shortcuts listed in alphabetical order for your convenience:

Abandoned Vehicles

The Abandoned Vehicles Random Events require players to locate a stationary vehicle in the middle of nowhere. There is a total of two of these events in the game and the target vehicles will appear on the map as a blue dot when you get close enough to them. To start these event, we simply need to walk up to the vehicle of interest.

These can be initiated by any character – Franklin, Michael or Trevor.

You will find the Abandoned Vehicle Random Events in the following locations:

Abandoned Vehicle 01

Start Location: On the dirt road just to the south of the airstrip in Sandy Shores.

Walkthrough: After locating the abandoned vehicle at the above location, get out and investigate it. As you approach it a short scene will play and you'll black out.

  • You will regain control of your character some time later on a train track. Get up and quickly move out of the way of the oncoming train and event will have been completed.

Reward/s and Unlocks:

  • N/A.

Abandoned Vehicle 02

Start Location: On a dirt path near the centre of Ron Alternate's Wind Farm.

Walkthrough: After locating the abandoned vehicle at the above location, we'll want to exit our vehicles to go and investigate it. As you approach said vehicle a pair of NPCs will emerge from inside and become hostile. Kill them to complete the Random Event.

Reward/s and Unlocks:

  • N/A.

Altruist Cult Shootout

The Altruist Cult Shootout Random Event is a singular event that can only be attempted once. It is actually somewhat tied into the other Random Events in the game as it requires that instead of completing objectives, Trevor delivers four different people to the Altruist Cult at their fortified compound on Mount Chilliad in the northwest region of the map. As is to be expected, this Random Event can only be undertaken by Trevor.

Start Location: Upon delivering the fourth victim to the Altruist Cult compound.

Walkthrough: After taking your fourth victim to the Altruist Cult's fortified compound on Mount Chilliad in the northwest region of the map, a scene will play and Trevor will be invited inside. Unfortunately, what comes next is not supposed to end well for Trevor, but Trevor has other ideas.

When you regain control of Trevor, you'll be within the compound. We need to clear the area of Altruists to complete the event. It's a good idea to stay put near the start and use the cover here whilst eliminating the initial enemies (use Trevor's special ability too to make things quicker and easier). Stay in the initial area in cover and continue to kill the Altruist enemies as they move in to attack you.

Once no more Altruists come your way, exit cover and carefully comb the area, being sure to check your mini-map for hostiles and clear them out.

When it is safe to do so, have a look around the area. On the decks of some of the buildings in this area you'll find briefcases full of cash ($25,000 per case) – I found four of them in total. There is also a Rocket Launcher as well, so lots of goodies!

With the looting done, mop up any remaining enemies and after they have all been completely wiped out, you'll get a notification on the screen ‘Altruist's Cleared'. At this point, the Random Event will be completed.

Reward/s and Unlocks:

  • Briefcases filled with cash ($100,000) and Rocket Launcher.

Arrests

The Arrest Random Events play out in essentially the same way each time you come across them. Once you have located the Random Event, you will see a policemen chasing and attempting to arrest a criminal. At this point you have a choice, you can either kill the criminal to help the policeman, or you can kill the policeman to help the criminal. Helping the criminal will earn you a small sum of money and a couple of wanted stars. Helping the policeman will reward you with nothing.Â

These can be initiated by any character – Franklin, Michael or Trevor.

There are two Arrest Random Events in total. You will find them in the following locations:

  • Arrest 01 - In the desert around halfway between the north-east side of Ron Alternates' Wind Farm and Davis Quartz. You'll earn $250 for killing the police officer to help the criminal or nothing for helping the policeman to arrest the criminal.
  • Arrest 02 - On the northern outskirts of Grapeseed. You'll earn $250 for killing the police officer to help the criminal or nothing for helping the policeman to arrest the criminal.

ATM Robbery

The ATM robberies are fairly simple. Once you have located the Random Event, you will see a robber attempting to knock off an ATM. Kill him to stop him and then loot his corpse. At this point you are now given a choice between returning the money and holding onto it. Whatever option you choose, the random task will record as being completed.

The ATM Robbery events can be initiated by any character – Franklin, Michael or Trevor.

Note: This Random Event, like the Security Vans, is a little different from the others in that it will continue to spawn on the map in numerous additional locations once completed. It should be noted that no matter how many times you complete it, only the first run through of the event will count, with subsequent attempts not included in your Random Event completion.

Start Location: Near the base of the MAZE building (tallest building in Los Santos) on the southern side.

Reward/s and Unlocks:

  • $500 for keeping the money.
  • $50 for returning the money.

Bike/Sports Bike Thefts

The Bike Theft and Sports Bike Theft Random Events play out in essentially the same way each time you come across them. Once you have located the Random Event, you will hear someone say that a thief has stolen their bike. At this point, a red blip will appear on the mini-map. Hunt down the red blip and kill the target thief. Once done, take the bike back to the victim to complete the Random Event.

These Random Events can be initiated by any character – Franklin, Michael or Trevor.

There are three bike theft Random Events in total. Here's where you will find each of the events and the rewards on offer:

  • Bike Theft 01 - On a street in south-eastern Rancho, close to the canal. Returning the bike will reward you with $100,000 worth of stocks on the LCN stock exchange and + 3 Stamina skill for each character.
  • Bike Theft 02 - On the road in north Hawick that is just to the south of the Vinewood Racetrack. Completing this event will earn you + 3 Stamina skill for each character.
  • Sports Bike Theft 01 - On one of the streets on the western side of Richman Glen. Successfully completing this Random Event will give each character + 5 Driving skill.

Border Patrol

The Border Patrol Random Events are quite reminiscent of Trevor's Minute Man 'Strangers and Freaks' missions if you have undertaken them. This time though, instead of hunting down and capturing alleged illegal immigrants, some random xenophobes will be convinced that you are an illegal immigrant and will try to chase down and kill you.

Each time you approach one of the Border Patrol Random Event blips on the mini-map, you will be attacked by a small group of enemies. These hostiles will often commence attacking from the back of ATVs and other off-road vehicles. Simply killing them all will complete the Random Event.

These can be initiated by any character – Franklin, Michael or Trevor.

There are three Border Patrol Random Events in total and there are no rewards/unlocks for completing them (although you can loot the bodies for some cashola!). Here's where you will find each of the events:

  • Border Patrol 01: Around the road with several switchbacks towards the middle of the Gran Senora Desert. This is just south of one of the mining facilities and north of the Vinewood sign.
  • Border Patrol 02: On a road to the southeast of the reservoir in the Tatavian Mountains
  • Border Patrol 03: On the dirt road running along the southern edge of Raton Canyon.

Burial

The Burial Random Event is a singular event that can only be attempted once. It requires you to find and approach a blue Random Event blip on the mini-map to witness an incident before reacting to it as you see fit. It can be initiated by any character – Franklin, Michael or Trevor and can be found in the following location:

Start Location: In northern Paleto Bay.

Walkthrough: Once you have located the Random Event, approach the blue indicator on the mini-map to trigger the event. As you arrive at the marker, you will see a group of men quite vigorously attempting to bury a woman alive.

To complete the Random Event we'll need to roll up on the group and kill all of the nasty people in the area to save the female victim. After that is done, hop in a car and the woman will hop in with you.

Now, we simply need to drive the woman over to the objective marker in Vinewood Hills to finish off the Random Event.

Note: if playing as Trevor, you can transport the woman to the Altruist Cult for progress towards that particular achievement/trophy and $1,000.

Reward/s and Unlocks:

  • The woman will give you $60,000 via email at some point in the following few days.

Bus Tour

The Bus Tour Event is a singular event that can only be attempted once. It requires you to find and approach a blue Random Event blip on the mini-map. It can be initiated by any character – Franklin, Michael or Trevor and can be found in the following location:

Start Location: In downtown Vinewood, it is handily marked by a bus symbol on the map.

Walkthrough: Once you have located the Random Event, hop on the bus and ride it around the city. It is essentially a tour bus that will take you on, you guessed it – a tour. We'll have to stay on the bus for the duration of the tour for the event to be counted as complete, don't worry though as it is only a brief ride!

Reward/s and Unlocks:

  • N/A.

Car Theft

The Car Theft Random Events are very similar to the Bike Theft and Sports Bike Theft events and play out in essentially the same way. After locating one of these Random Events, you will hear someone say that a thief has stolen their car. At this point, a red blip will appear on the mini-map. Hunt down the red blip and kill the target thief.

Afterwards you'll be given the choice between keeping the unique vehicle that you have just saved, or returning it to the woman who will in turn reward you by boosting each character's driving stat by 5 points. Either option will complete the Random Event.

These Random Events can be initiated by any character – Franklin, Michael or Trevor. There are two car theft Random Events in total. Here's where you will find each of the events and the rewards on offer:

  • Car Theft 01 - On the highway near the Hookies Bar property in North Chumash. Completing this will reward you with a choice between + 5 Driving skill for each character OR a special modified Peyote.
  • Car Theft 02 - In the southern part of the Los Santos international Airport area. Completing this will reward you with the Blue Suit clothing and a choice between + 5 Driving skill for each character OR a special modified Rocoto.

Chasing Thieves City/Country

The Chasing Thieves City and Chasing Thieves Country Random Events play out in essentially the same way each time you come across them and are pretty much identical to the Bike Theft, Sports Bike Theft and Car Theft Random Events. Once you have located the Random Event, you will hear someone say that a thief has stolen their wallet. A red blip will appear on the mini-map.

The red marker indicates the perpetrator/s and to complete the Random Event you'll need to chase down and kill the thieves. Afterwards return the wallet to the victim, or keep it if you like. Either way, you'll complete the Random Event.

Once they are all dead or dying, it's time to decide whether to keep the money or to return it to end the event.

Once the coast is clear, we need to escort the event target back to his car. At this point, a new wave of hostile gang member bad guys will show up. Take cover once again and help the NPC take all of them out as well.

To complete the Random Event we can either pull off to the side of the road before using the car as cover to eliminate the approaching hostile NPCs, or alternatively we can simply drive away from the ambush site and lose the pursuing four-wheel drives.
