Paleto Score Setup - Mission Details:

Trevor and Michael meet at Trevor's meth lab in Sandy Shores. The pair engage in another argument about the lives they both leave. Their argument is interrupted when Steve and Dave show up. Dave states they have a problem, a funding issue. They need Michael and Trevor to investigate a research lab up-state, which are making nerve gas. However, the FIB doesn't have the funding for the equipment they need to carry out the task and want Michael and Trevor to come up with the money.

Michael gets annoyed about this but is left with no choice but to do the job. Michael and Trevor get in a car and start to drive towards Paleto Bay. Michael calls Lester, telling him they have a funding problem and need a job. Michael remembers Lester mentioning a bank in the sticks in Paleto Bay and asks Lester to meet him there. 

Michael and Trevor get to Paleto Bay and wait at a bus stop for Lester. Once he arrives, they all get into Michael's car and go to the Blaine County Savings Bank. They check out the front and the back of the bank. Lester isn't happy with the alarm set up and wants to see how long it would take for local police to respond if the alarm is triggered.

Michael shoots the alarm, setting it off. They drive over to a local gas station and time the police response. It takes a total of sixty-seven seconds for four cars to show up. Lester has a police scanner that states the alarm to be a false alarm that they believe to be intentional. It is also mentioned that checkpoints will be set up on the Great Ocean Highway and Senora Freeway, doing car to car search and record checks.

Trevor isn't pleased with this news and gets out of the car so he can bypass the checkpoints. Trevor gets on a motorbike and challenges Michael to a race back to his lab. Once back at the lab, the group choose which gunman to pick for the heist. 

Heist Crew Selection:

The following characters are available to complete the crew for The Paleto Score:

Gunman

  • Gustavo Mota (14% cut) - If chosen, he won't be killed during the escape and will provide a distraction will Michael, Trevor and Franklin fight the military in the factory.
  • Packie McReary (12% cut) - If chosen, he won't be killed during the escape and will provide a distraction will Michael, Trevor and Franklin fight the military in the factory.
  • Chef (12% cut) - If chosen, he won't be killed during the escape and will provide a distraction will Michael, Trevor and Franklin fight the military in the factory.
  • Norm Richards (10.5% casualty expense) - If chosen, he will be pinned against a wall by a police car making him unable to provide a distraction or continue.
  • Daryl Johns (9% casualty expense) - If chosen, he will be pinned against a wall by a police car making him unable to provide a distraction or continue.

Best Approach & Largest Possible Take

Although a cheap gunman will be killed and make casualty expenses, it is still a lesser expense than Packie, Chef or Gus cost. It is best to use Norm Richards (10.5%) as it is better to save Daryl Johns (9%) for the Big Score.
