Quick Mission Guide

Follow these steps to complete the mission successfully without worrying about medal requirements. If you need help with the Gold Medal, check here,

  1. Complete the Paleto Score Setup and Military Hardware and wait for a phone call from Franklin, then switch over to him and chase down the O’Neill Brothers until they crash.
  2. Investigate the Crash Site - Investigate the crash site, then switch over to Trevor and collect the helicopter from the airfield.
  3. Go to the Forest - Now fly to the Forest and use the thermal scope to take out the guys hiding.
  4. Chop! - Wait for Chop to find the final target, then take him down.
  5. Return Home - Finally, pick up Franklin and return to the airfield to complete the mission.

Gold Medal Requirements:

  1. Accuracy - Finish with a shooting accuracy of at least 70 percent.
  2. Mission Time - Complete within 09:00.
  3. Headshots - Kill 3 enemies with headshots.
  4. Thin The Herd - Don’t kill any animals.

Trevor needs to find the remnants of the O’Neil brothers.


You will be using a sniper rifle and a thermal scope so you shouldn’t have to worry too much. You do need to aim for their heads though so you must take the time to line up your shots.

Mission Time

You will need to know where the enemies are and to skip the cutscenes in this mission otherwise you will miss the limit. The first enemy is swimming in the river so look there first. The second guy is in the middle of the woods so zoom in and look for the heat signature (see above screenshot). You can distinguish them between the animals. Then a guy will start firing rockets at you.


You need to shoot all 3 of the enemies in the head for this. The one in the river, the one in the woods and the one who fires the rockets. Close down on the guy and bust his head open.

Thin The Herd

As long as you don’t accidentally shoot any animal during this mission, you will get this challenge.
