GTA 5: The Bus Assassination – How to Achieve Gold Completion

A guide to gold completion for the Bus Assassination in Grand Theft Auto 5.

Grand Theft Auto 5, like its predecessor, features a series of assassination missions. There are a total of five, which can only be completed by Franklin and are assigned to him by Lester. Today we are going to cover The Bus Assassination and guide you to Gold completion. 

In the cut scene that introduces each assignment, Lester will give Franklin tips about which companies to invest in, and which should be avoided on the two in-game stock markets. This information is nothing short of insider trading, and if done correctly, players can earn more than $150 million for each of the three playable characters. With that in mind, we recommend that you do not complete any of the assassination missions prior to finishing the fourth and final heist in Grand Theft Auto 5, The Big Score! Waiting until you receive the money from this heist will help maximize your profits on the stock market.

Gold Completion Requirements

Hit and Run Bonus

Money Earned

After completing this mission, players should invest money into Vapid, which can be found on the BAWSAQ stock exchange. Be sure to do this with all three of the playable characters.

Following the cut scene, grab a vehicle and head to the bus depot by following the blue route on your radar. Get on the bus and follow the now yellow route on your radar to the first bus stop. Move along the marked route, making all the stops until the target boards the bus. Franklin will address him as Mr. Penny. The target will exit the bus and steal a bike. In order to achieve Gold completion, you need to use the bus to kill him. Follow the target and run him over when the opportunity presents itself. As long as the bus kills the target (and not Mr. Penny hitting a wall as a result of the bus) you will earn the Gold completion. Once you’re done, exit the bus and leave the area. Franklin calls Lester to confirm that the mission is complete and receives $7,000 for his trouble.
