Playable Character(s) Prerequisite
Franklin "Three's Company"

Grass Roots - The Pickup

Franklin is required to do two mini missions for Barry instead of just one and it does not require you to undergo anymore creepy hallucinations either.

Mission Time

- Complete within 02:45

The timer will start after calling Barry. You must get to your destination fast if you want to you complete this task. Use Franklin’s special and avoid crashing at all costs! The on-screen timer will give you a rough idea of how well you’re doing for time so keep an eye on that. The time is very reasonable so do not worry too much.

Unwanted Outcome

- Complete without gaining a wanted level

If you simply follow the yellow route on the minimap, you will gain a wanted level immediately as the cops are lurking around the corner. To avoid them, turn right out of the yard, head towards the LS river and drive through the barriers there and into the river. Drive along a short way and then double back once you see the wall end. Come back out onto the road and just follow the yellow marker to the drop-off point. Easy!

Franklin's special can boost your speed cutting the time down dramatically. Always make use of it when you can (left). This is where you can find the tow truck you need to take the car to the drop-off point (right).

Grass Roots - The Drag

The second mission requires you to do a delivery-type mission similar to the Tonya tow truck mission line.

Mission Time

- Complete within 01:30

To minimise the time for this mission, you can find the tow truck past the tank at the back of the yard. Hop in it and quickly hook up the car and then drive quickly to your destination. As always, make use of Franklin’s special to avoid crashing.


- Keep the stash car hooked until delivery

As always, Franklin’s special makes this a lot easier. You can avoid crashes and get around tight turns by using quick bursts of the power. Drive quickly but carefully and you will complete this task with ease.

The Smoke In

Approach the marker and Franklin will phone Barry. After the conversation, simply leave the area to complete the mission. You will not get a mission complete screen so don’t think your game is glitched.
