Warning! Don’t start this mission until completion of the last story mission and don’t forget to save the game before performing it.

It’s desirable to have a suppressed weapon. It will help to not attract the police attention during the assassination of the target and get the gold medal.

Shares Purchase Before the Mission

Invest all the money of all three protagonists in Fruit shares. To do it, open the web browser on your phone or another device, click on “Money and Services”, next click on BAWSAQ, go to “Markets”, find Fruit (FRT) in the list and buy as many shares as you can. It’s advisable to keep a few thousand dollars for taxi services and other small expenses.

Then switch to the two other protagonists and do the same. After that, you are ready to start the mission.

Stock Exchanges in GTA V

There are two of them — LCN and BAWSAQ. Like most stock exchanges in the real world, they are closed on weekends. It’s possible to buy and sell shares on Saturday and Sunday, but their price will not change until Monday.

You need to be online to use BAWSAQ. If it’s not available, postpone the assassination and try again in a few hours of real-time.


Reach the marked point and stand at some distance from the prostitute. Don’t attract unnecessary attention to yourself and don’t interfere with traffic.

The target named Jackson Skinner will drive up to the prostitute in a Vapid Peyote with the roof off. Keep him on sight, but don’t shoot until the girl starts to get in his car. Don’t try to intercept Skinner before he meets the hooker because this will lead to the mission failure.

If you didn’t eliminate the target immediately, you can try to shot it in a drive-by or follow the car until it stops and then kill Skinner. Don’t blow up the car, as this may attract the police attention.

When the target will be eliminated, leave the crime scene as soon as possible. If you stay too long, the wanted level will rise, and you will not get the gold medal. When you are far enough, Franklin will call Lester, and the mission will be completed.

Shares Sale and Purchase After the Mission

The Fruit shares that you bought before the mission will grow by about 25% within a 8–24 in-game hours. Make sure that the growth of shares reached about 25% and sell them. To do this, go to the LCN or BAWSAQ website, select the “My Portfolio” section and click the “Sell All” button.

Then buy the shares of Facade (FAC) on the BAWSAQ website. They, in turn, will grow by about 33% in 36–48 in-game hours, after which they’ll also need to be sold. Don’t forget to buy and sell shares of all three protagonists.

Note: data on the change of the share prices are relevant for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. On PS3 and Xbox 360, you can earn more. The game updates can also affect the state of affairs.


  • It’s not necessary to go to bed several times to advance the time while you holding the shares. You can, for example, participate in some miscellaneous activities.
