The following are the Mission Objectives required to obtain the Gold Medal:.

  • Time: Time taken to complete mission.

Note: You can complete each Gold Medal requirement in multiple playthroughs of the mission. You don't need to obtain them all in one single playthrough..

Important Stock Market Investments

The Assassination Missions play a huge role in the GTA V Stock Market, with the targets' deaths affecting the stock value of specific companies. The player can make huge profits by purchasing and selling certain stocks at the right times.

Assassinations can be done after the end of the main story. So it's best to first complete the Story Missions before doing any other Assassination Mission, in order to have the most millions of dollars to invest.

After this mission:.

  • Invest all the money of all three protagonists in Vapid (VAP) stocks on the Bawsaq site.
  • Wait a few in-game days before selling the Vapid stocks so that they can reach their maximum value; the maximum percentage of return is ~100%.


Note:
To make the in-game time advance faster, you can sleep or simply enter the save menu from a character's bed without saving. Make sure to create a save slot before starting an assassination mission, so that if the peak return is missed you can reload the previous save.

Mission Objectives

  • Get the bus.
  • Drive to each bus stop until the target is located.
  • Assassinate the target.
