After the cutscene, go along with Lamar to his van. Get behind the wheel and wait for Lamar and Chop, then go to the destination. Remember that you can’t greatly damage the van if you want the gold medal.

After arriving at the destination point and the end of the cutscene, run to the van and start the pursuit. The chase is scripted, so don’t try to overtake or hit D. The main thing is to watch over the safety of the van. Franklin’s special ability can help you in this matter. To get the gold medal you need to use it at least 7 seconds during the mission.

At some point, D will be hit by a bus and you will need to chase him on foot. It’s pretty easy, there are no special requirements. You can’t use D’s bike.

When the game prompts to switch to Chop, do it because to get the gold medal you need to look at the world through his eyes for at least 10 seconds. You can just wait while the game will automatically switch you back to Franklin. You can’t control Chop, only watching is possible.

After some time Chop will notice another dog and will mate with it. Calling him is useless unless you have trained him with the iFruit app. Therefore, go to him and drag away from the other dog.

At first go to the first on the right freight car — D. is inside. Stand in front of the door that marked by a ellow point on the map and Franklin will automatically open the door. Continue pursuit.

After the short chase and ending of the cutscene, drive to the destination point. Rushing makes no sense, drive carefully. It is also a suitable time to use Franklin’s special ability, if you doubt that the previously you used it for 7 seconds.

After another short cutscene, take Lamar to the rec center. Once Lamar and Chop will out of sight, the mission will end.


  • The iFruit app is available for iOS, Android, Windows Phone, Windows 8/8.1/RT/10, PlayStation Vita. If you don’t have a suitable device, you can also use the emulator of Android for some desktop operating systems.
  • Bandana, which covers Franklin’s face in this mission, will be available to wear after the end of the storyline.
