Act 1 Gold Medals


In this mission you are introduced to the basics of gunfights and shooting. Oh and how to blow stuff up.

Mission Time

- Complete within 6:30

To ensure you complete the mission within the time limit, use Franklin’s special if you get caught up in traffic and try to kill the biker as soon as he appears at the end of the street just after the gunfight. This will save you a ton of time spent chasing after him for the bike.

Trail Blazer

- Shoot the gasoline trail

This one is simple. When the blue car reverses out of the garage on the right, it leaves a trail of gasoline. Simply fire a shot at it and it will ignite and blow up the car and enemies around it.

If you look at the end of the alley you can see the biker. Try and kill him as soon as he appears (left). Shoot into the trail on the floor to get some nice fireworks (right).


- Kill 6 enemies with a headshot

Try to use a weapon that makes it easier to get headshots such as the Carbine Rifle or Combat Pistol. If this is your first time through, simply use the pistol and be super careful when you aim at the enemies.

The auto-aim doesn't aim for the head so you need to move the crosshairs up a little.


- Finish with a shooting accuracy of at least 70 percent

As mentioned above, if you are doing this as a replay, Franklin’s shooting ability will be improved and you will have access to more accurate weapons. The Carbine Rifle (fully upgraded) or the Combat Pistol make good choices. Or of course you could always use the good old Sniper Rifle. Try not to miss any shots because this mission really penalises you for that.
