Grand Theft Auto V

The Ballad Of Rocco

Claire Farnworth

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. Once you’ve completed Fresh Meat, head to the S on the map to begin this mission.
  2. Eliminate Rocco - After you’ve put a stop to the fight, chase down Rocco and eliminate him.
  3. Return to the Studio - Once they’ve been dealt with, return to the studio to complete the mission.

Gold Medal Requirements:

  1. Mission Time - Complete within 03:00.

Naturally Rocco is back to being an idiot so you need to deal with him.

Mission Time

Skip the cutscenes and chase after Rocco. You will need a good drive-by weapon like the Micro-SMG for this. If you shoot at his car enough, he’ll eventually get out and try to run away. Gun him down when he does and take care of his friend too.

(1 of 2) Shoot out the tires on the car to bring it to a stop

Shoot out the tires on the car to bring it to a stop (left), then run over Rocco to take him out. (right)

For a faster method, equip the Heavy Sniper, activate Michael’s special as soon as they try and drive away and drill them in the head as they leave. If you can get the shots right, it’s a much simpler solution.
