The Bureau Raid (Fire Crew Approach)

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 have completed all the preparations, return to Lester to begin the heist.
  2. FIB Building - After the scene has come to a close, drive to the FIB Building, then take the elevator up and begin mopping the office floor.
  3. Plant the Bombs - Once you are done mopping, go over to the locker and plant the bomb, then mop the next room and plant another bomb in the rest room.
  4. Exit - Upon planting the second bomb, return the mop and bucket to the closet, then exit the building and switch over to Franklin.
  5. Detonate! - Pick up Michael in the fire truck and detonate the bomb, then race to the building and work your way up to the top floor.
  6. Collect the Containment Drive - Upon reaching the top floor, use a bomb on the sealed door, then grab the containment drive before following Michael and the crew to the elevator shaft.
  7. Escape - Rappel down to the ground floor, then take the fire truck over to the getaway car. Finally, destroy the truck and return to Lester’s home to complete the mission.

Gold Medal Requirements:

  1. Mission Time - Complete within 18:00.
  2. Out of Breath - Escape with 40 percent oxygen remaining.
  3. You Missed A Spot - Complete the mopping section within 03:00.
  4. Abseiler - Abseil down the elevator shaft within 00:30

This approach is a lot easier than the roof approach. You don’t have to do anything too difficult. Make sure Franklin has some good body armour before you start.

Mission Time

This mission is pretty easy to blast through. There aren’t many moments where you have to be careful and take your time so just go all out.

Out of Breath

Providing you don’t stand around admiring the scenery, you should have around 60 percent oxygen remaining if you are aiming for a good time. Run between objectives and just follow your crew so you know where to go.

You Missed A Spot

You need to know exactly where to go as the janitor. Move the bucket with you before going to another room. Clean the mop in between patches. If you place the bucket in the middle of the patches you limit the time it takes to walk between them.

Make sure to go straight to your objectives as you can easily miss the time limit. Always rinse the mop after cleaning a patch as otherwise you will waste time mopping twice.

(1 of 2) Mop the floor in between planting the bombs

The abseil can easily be missed too. The best thing to do is wait till Franklin is near the wall, then press and hold the button on screen to make Franklin do a long drop. If you keep doing tiny jumps, it will take too long.
