GTA 5 Strangers & Freaks - Unknowing the Truth

Unknowing the Truth is a Strangers & Freaks side mission in Grand Theft Auto V given by Cris Formage, involving protagonist Michael De Santa.

It's the 8° mission for Cris Formage, after the Exercising the Truth mission.

This is an optional mission, not required for 100% completion of the game.

Unknowing the Truth - Mission Details:

Michael needs to choose between Epsilon's reward or stealing their money... or both.

Michael meets Cris at the Epsilon Program Center in West Vinewood. Michael donates $50,000 to Epsilon. Cris wants to deliver some of the "apocalypse funds" to the Cayman Islands and needs Michaels help. Cris keeps asking Michael questions but Michael just answers "Kifflom".

Cris guides Michael to a car, loaded with cash, and asks him to deliver it to his helicopter. Michael follows Epsilon security in a convoy to a drop-off point in Burton. 

At any point while in the convoy, Michael can choose to betray Epsilon and drive off with the cash. If he does this then Epsilon will chase him down and he'll have a fight on his hands. Once successful, he can keep the money in the car which is $2.1 million.

If he stays with the convoy, once at the drop-off point, a member of Epsilon called Jesse will lead Michael to his prize, an old and rusty Tractor. If Michael then goes back to the drop-off point, the helicopter and cars will be gone. 

Gold Medal Objectives (100%)

The following are the Mission Objectives required to obtain the Gold Medal in the mission "Unknowing the Truth":

  • Cult Intervention: Kill all Epsilon Security
  • Show Me The Money: Steal the Epsilon money and escape

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.
