Grand Theft Auto 5 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 Multi Target Assassination and help you achieve 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.

Prior to beginning this mission, players should invest all of their money into Debonaire, which can be found on the Liberty City National stock exchange. Be sure to do this with all three of the playable characters.
Once the cut scene is complete, jump in your car (or borrow one) and make sure you have a sniper rifle for this mission. Equip the one that has a suppressor and follow the red GPS route indicated on your radar. Notice that you have a countdown timer in the bottom right corner. You need to complete this mission in the allotted time to avoid failure. You’re headed to Vespucci Beach to assassinate a body builder. The target will show up as a red dot on your radar. Stop just before the beach, exit your vehicle and take aim with your Sniper Rifle. Take the target down with a headshot and get back in your car.
Each time you take down one of the targets, you’ll get an updated red route marked on your GPS. The second target is to the north, on a yacht off the coast of Pacific Bluffs near the Pipeline Inn. Head there quickly, keeping the countdown timer in the back of your mind. There is a little bit of room for error, so don’t worry too much if you get in the odd car accident. Once you arrive near the target’s location, look at your radar. You might see the red indicator on your radar skip. He’s off the cost on a yacht, and it looks like he’s having a good time. Take aim with your suppressed Sniper Rifle and take him down. Head back to your car and on to the next target.
The third target is in West Vinewood, by the Eclipse Medical Tower. Lester tells you to look for dirty windows. Your target will be on a lift, washing windows. The red marker at his location lets you know he’s above you. Just as you did before, exit your vehicle, take aim with your suppressed sniper rifle and take the target down with a headshot. Get back in your car and prepare to head to the next target.
The final target is on a Bati bike, and he’s moving. Follow the red route marked on your GPS. Move as quickly as possible, but don’t be afraid to slow down to avoid collisions. The target won’t run unless you give him a reason. Pick up as much speed as possible and use your car to ram into his bike. He should fall off and die. If not, run him over again or get out and shoot him. Soon after, Franklin will give Lester a call and let him know the job is done. If you followed our guide, and moved quickly, you should have obtained the Gold completion for this mission, along with a cool $7,000.
