Grand Theft Auto 5 Guide: Assassination Missions Guide

GTA 5 Guide

Assassination missions make a return in Grand Theft Auto 5 and they are an easy way to make some quick cash. If you invest in the right stocks you can make an even greater amount of cash. This guide will tell you which stocks to invest in before taking out a target.

Grand Theft Auto 5 Assassination Mission Guide

These will unlock after you do your first heist and you will get more and more as you progress through the game. Some of them will have a certain stock tied to them so try to do these when you have extra cash to blow.

In theory you should be able to switch between each character and buy stock on each one before you do these and triple your profits. We are going to test it out and we will get back to you.

Assassination Missions

Franklin Mission

The Hotel Assassination:

This is the first real assassination mission Lester will give to Franklin. Before the mission starts buy up as much of the competitive stock BetaPharmaceuticals as it will go up in price significantly after the assassination. Make your way to the hotel and bring a silenced sniper rifle with you for easy killing. Once you get into the hotel parking ramp wait out the time limit. Once the timer hits 0, the target will walk out of the building in a pink button down dress shirt. Take the shot and leave the area out the back of the parking ramp for a no fuss assassination and get paid.

The Multi Target Assassination:

You will have to kill four jurors which will hurt Redwood’s stock and increase Debonaire’s stock. You will have a little over 8 minutes to find all four of the jurors, Like Lester says bring something with some good range like a sniper rifle. The first juror is a huge dude flexing near a bunch of workout equipment. The second juror is out on a sail boat getting a lap dance, try to just kill the juror. The third juror is sitting on one of those window cleaning things that hangs from a building, shoot the string if you can’t get a shot on him. The final guy is one a bike driving away from you, use Franklin’s special to catch up to him quick. After you beat the mission sell your Debonaire stock and bring in that profit.

The Vice Assassination:

Invest in Fruit in the BAWSAQ (thanks to Nathan Mayne and French for this one). For this mission you will have to go find a hooker and wait for her to get into someones car. Once the girl gets into the car you will need to kill him, do a drive-by or shoot him from the sidewalk. I parked on the nearby hill and sniped him from a short distance. No police attention.

The Bus Assassination:

[iframe width="600" height="336" src="//www.youtube.com/embed/iriwjpruXN4" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen]

 

Do not buy and Vapid stock, if you own some be sure to sell it because it is going down the drain soon. You will need to go to the bus station and take a bus from the lot. After you hit a few bus stops you will run into Mr. Penny. He will steal a bike and start to ride away, you can run him down in your bus or get out and shoot him.

Franklin Snipe

The Construction Assassination – Buy some stock in Gold Coast Development because it is about go go up up up! Lester says he source squealed this time so you will want to go with some armor and maybe a heavy hitter weapon like a grenade launcher or assault rifle. Once you get to the construction site you can avoid the first set of guards by going around the site to the elevator on the ground level. You will have to crash a car through the fence but from there you can walk right into the elevator.

After that you will be on a floor with more guards that you will have to take out. Get behind cover and take them out as they come to you, once they are down go to the next elevator and clear the guards that are on it. Once you make it to the roof the helicopter will start to take off, focus on the guy sitting out of the door and kill him before it can escape. Clear out all the guys on the roof, grab the parachute, jump off the roof and collect your payday.

That will end the Grand Theft Auto 5 Assassination Mission Guide, I will update it as more become available to me. If you want to make millions on the stock market, complete every Heist with ease, or unlock all the random events; check out our Grand Theft Auto V Walkthrough Guide Collection.

  • Yavuz Hakzade

    it says the market is down for maintenance, am i doing something wrong?

    • JohnnyHurricane

      Are you in the right market? Once of them is always down.

      • confused

        The Bawsaq is down for maintenance yet that is where the “BettaPharma” and “Fruit” stocks are located. Please explain.

        • CaptainCamper

          Johnny hasn’t checked the BAWSAQ market that much, but it is down at the moment. It’s an online feature so it’s victim to downtime and maintenance on occasion. I expect to see it up before long :D

      • TaXC

        You just need to connect to PSN

  • SieRoX

    Do I switch between all 3 characters and invest before starting the Assassination Mission with Franklin? And when do I sell? Some people say to wait for 2 days and sell for maximum profit….

    • CaptainCamper

      Hey Sie. That’s right. Invest with all characters then start the mission. Once you’ve done that you’ll want to see shortly after completing. Personally, I go home and sleep twice, then sell.

      • SieRoX

        Thx a bunch CaptainCamper, made some great profit :)

        • CaptainCamper

          You’re most welcome :D

  • PhilthyPhil

    The Vice Assassination specifically says watch out for the Fruit stock and make sure you are on Live or PSN when dealing with BAWSAQ or else it won’t come up

    • JohnnyHurricane

      Oh that makes sense thanks for the info.

  • kevin

    is there more lester invest missions or are is this all of em?

    • CaptainCamper

      Hey Kevin. These are all the ones we’ve had so far. 2 of us have completed the game and I’ve personally done every side mission bar 2, nothing else so far. I’m still working on checking out ways to manipulate the stock market after you complete the game so check our stock market guide if that interests you :D

      • kevin

        okey, becuse i failed abit on thoose missions, i wasent so rich when i did em, so i didnt get so much cash for it, but next run i will w8 untill i got shitloads of money before doing thoose missions becuse u almost dubble the money each mission :D

        • JohnnyHurricane

          I was hoping for more also but this is all I got.

  • Jamalc

    Question: Can I go back and replay these and still reap the benefits?

    • CaptainCamper

      As far as I’m aware Jamalc, no. Once you exit the mission the game world reverts to your current scenario, which isn’t the same as the progression based advancement originally used. It may do though, I’ll look into it.

      • Tried it

        So i did try it. It doesn’t seem to work. You can only do it on the first time around. Darn it.. I wish I knew before… I thought they were part of the story so I did the missions. sigh

  • Eric Monette

    In the vice mission, do you invest in Fruit BEFORE or AFTER completing the mission?!

    • DngnRdr

      It’s kinda silly that you can’t switch characters to buy/sell shares in the companies at some point during the mission (a conference call to tip off your partners would make sense) – if you’re playing for the first time without consulting tips then there’s no way to know which companies till you start the missions and then it won’t let you switch. :-/

      • Dion

        kill yourself then do it and go back to the mission!

        • DngnRdr

          I know that.. but there should be something in the game that allows that instead of acting on knowledge you wouldn’t have on a first playthrough without “cheating” eg. having access to the other characters accounts without actually changing characters.
