Act 1 Gold Medals


In this mission we get to meet Lamar’s dog Chop. You can teach him tricks and play fetch. For this mission, he is used to find someone. The hardest challenge is the “Not a Scratch” challenge as it so often is.

Not a Scratch

- Complete with minimal damage to Lamar’s van

The only time you need to go fast in the van is when you are chasing the bike rider. Use Franklin’s special to avoid collisions and to make awkward turns or whenever the rider suddenly changes direction. You can afford a couple of small bumps but nothing major. When not chasing the bike rider, just drive carefully to your destination.


- Enter Chop’s perspective for 10 seconds

The game will prompt you to switch to Chop during the search in the trainyard. Do so when prompted and watch his perspective for a while. The game will tell you to switch back to Franklin to search the boxcars. After that point you should have enough for the challenge.

Now would be a good time to use Franklin's special (left). Chop's perspective (right).

Advanced Reflexes

- Use Franklin’s special ability for 7 seconds

The best time to use this is during the bike chase. You will need to use it if you are wanting to avoid damage to the van anyway. Use it in short bursts at every awkward moment and you will easily rack up enough time to complete this challenge.
