Payphone Hits are a series of Freemode Missions in GTA Online, given by Franklin Clinton and associated to the Celebrity Solutions Agency property.

This job has been added to the game as part of the update on December 15, 2021, and is available on PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS5 and Xbox Series X|S.

This is a Solo or Co-Op mode that can be played by 1 to 4 Players.

Hey, look. Good shit on those contracts you been workin' on. But listen, I got some other work. A certain kind of work that need a certain type of person, you know what I mean? Big ticket type shit. I don't wanna say too much on my cell. So I'll be in touch with you on a payphone. Keep your ears open.

In the game, assassination missions unlock after players complete their third Security Contract.

These missions are communicated through payphones to evade FIB surveillance. Players have the option to answer ringing payphones or contact Franklin to initiate a hit, which involves eliminating a target within 15 minutes, for a reward of $15,000.

Following specific instructions can yield a higher payout, up to $30,000 extra money. Additionally, not adhering to the bonus conditions will trigger a three-star wanted level or require the player to handle enemy reinforcements.

A 10-minute in-game cooldown period is imposed after each hit before another can be activated.

Payphone Hit List

Payphone Hit: The CEO

You ever heard of the show called Closet CEO? Where some asshole billionaire pretends to be one of his broke-ass employees for a day or two.
Well, keep thinking about that, and then think about the CEO of Gold Coast Development. This dude is a world-class asshole... union bustin', poor working conditions, corruption, intimidation, man, you name it... and check this out... now he about to throw on some overalls and play nice for the workers on his site for the cameras.
Now, full disclosure: I did some work a while ago that gave this asshole's market value a boost. But that was before I heard what a piece of shit this fucker really is. So, when a client came to me with a proposal to make some bills off liquidating his ass, man, I said hell yeah.
Our client goin' short the fuck out of the Gold Coast Development stock... then we goin' ice this fool while he's playing at construction worker for this dumbass show. The stock tanks, our client gets rich, we get paid.
And if we make it look like he died because of some unsafe conditions on his site? Makes it even better. 
The CEO GTA Online Payphone Hit Target
The client wants the assassination to look like a work accident - all conditions involve the player using a nearby stashed sniper rifle to take out the CEO.

Shipping Container

There's a lot of old machinery at that site - a lot of it hanging pretty close to people, if you catch my drift. Accidents happen, especially when there's heavy containers involved and a weapon stashed nearby. If you connect the dots, there's a bonus in it for you

A sniper rifle is stashed on a vantage point, enabling the player to snipe a shipping container help by a Dock Handler, causing it to drop on the CEO and killing him. The player must wait until the CEO goes under the container.

Gas Tank Explosion

The target's a smoker. He should know better - construction site is a dangerous place to light shit up. If you wanna make out with a little more cash, just one suppressed shot in the right place should make it look like a real bad accident. There's a weapon stashed over there, if you need it.

A sniper rifle is stashed on a vantage point nearby. The player may use it to blow up a gas tank by shooting it when the CEO is nearby, killing him.


Client's in the mood for an industrial accident. Maybe if you shoot the right guy at the right time, the target will have a run-in with a bulldozer? Don't worry about the driver - these dudes are bodyguards in fancy dress anyway. Weapon is stashed nearby.

A sniper rifle is stashed on a vantage point nearby. The player may use it to take out a bodyguard disguised as a worker, who is sitting inside a Bulldozer. When the CEO is in front of the Dozer's path, killing the bodyguard will cause the Dozer to lose control and run the CEO over, killing him.

Payphone Hit: The Cofounder

Ey, look, today's target is a cautionary tale, homie. The target is one of the founding members of that phone company, bitterSweet. Man, back in the day he lived the whole Vinewood tech pioneer life... private jets, kale smoothies, cocaine for breakfast... man, you know, all that crazy shit. Then everyone started buying iFruit phones instead, and he went off the rail real fucking fast. Got into all sorts of nasty shit... and I mean nasty shit... and the company fuckin' tanked.
But now they got a chance of a new relaunch to turn it all around. But here's where we come in: his cofounder still clean as they come, but he can't do shit while this degenerate fuck has the reins. So we goin' arrange for him to have a lil' accident. The cofounder takes over, and then the stock prices pick up, which means our client's goin' make a big fuckin' bank, and we get paid.
We got the target at the motel with a nasty-ass prostitute right now. Go put his ass out of his misery.
The Cofounder GTA Online Payphone Hit Target
The client wants the assassination to look like a driving accident, and involves killing the target while inside his Tornado.


There's extra cash if we can make it look like a nasty accident. Wait for our guy to get in his convertible, then set that shit on fire. I heard his ride's so beat up, faulty wiring won't be no surprise. Better hurry cause Imani says he checked out and he's leaving real soon.

The player is instructed to set the vehicle on fire after the target gets inside, either using a Jerry Can or Molotov Cocktails.


Client's gonna throw in some extra cash if you can make it look like it was an accident with this dude's piece of trash convertible. If I was you I'd take his ride, hook up a bomb. then get it back before he makes his appearance. Imani says he's checking out now so yuou better shift yo ass.

The player must take the Tornado to a Los Santos Customs and install an Ignition Bomb or a Remote Bomb on the vehicle. Planting a sticky bomb on the vehicle will also satisfy the conditions.


There's a rifle stashed at a spot near the motel. If you want a little more cash, put one into the dude's engine block when he gets into that convertoble of his. If your aim is right, it'll light that shit up like Del Perro Pier. You better move, Imani says he's about to check out.

The player is instructed to use a Marksman Rifle to blow up the car's engine while the target is inside it, killing him in the process.

Payphone Hit: The Judge

Man, this should be a wholesome-ass day of work. The target is some backwards-ass judge that change the sentences for anyone who offers her a fur coat, or a stack of fuckin' cash. She put a lot of innocent people in jail. Some fuckin' people I even know.
And tomorrow, she's ruling in a big fraud case against one of our partners at Lombank. The whole world know he guilty as fuck, so a whole bunch of our clients are out there betting against Lombank stock. Only I just got wind the lady judge been paid to throw the fuckin' case out. And if the defendant walks, and the stock don't tank, our clients stand to lose a lot of fuckin' money. So, I say we bring some karma to this evil-ass bitch, take her out, and our clients'll give us a nice kickback when justice takes its course.
So look, she's at the golf course now, playing a round to celebrate in advance. Your outfit should still be at the club house. I suggest you go pay her ass a visit.
The Judge GTA Online Payphone Hit Target

Dress up for some golf and hop in a caddy. Clients are gonna throw in a bonus if you just run her down with the cart and keep it moving.

The player must use a nearby Caddy, parked in the Golf Club's parking lot, to run-over the target, killing them.

Remote Bomb

If you're looking to finesse a little extra cash out of this, just hide an explosive in one of the holes. There's some stashed nearby. Then just pull out your phone and hit detonate when she's going for the putt.

The player must plant a bomb on one of the holes the target will arrive at. They must blow up the bomb at the right time, killing the target in the process.

Golf Club

Little extra in it for you if you're down to suit up for 9 holes and take her out with a club.

The player must perform a melee kill on the target using a Golf Club.

Payphone Hit: The Popstar

Ey, I would give you this target's name, but I know you haven't heard it before. He ain't even famous yet... but shit, he about to be. Some sick degenerate trust fund kid who fucks up people lives for fun. He's spiked girls' drinks, done hit and runs, assaults, man, you name it... and then he paid his way out of all that shit.
And now he wanna do some reputation management, so he can buy his way into being the next big pop star. He got a label and a song that's all bought and paid for, he got a ad space and social media campaign ready to fuckin' go. He's all set to scoop a number one single when it drops next week.
Now, I know what you thinking: another manufactured pop star, so what? Who cares? Well, our client works at the record label, and he got some nice intel... the label sunk everything they got into this lil' son of a bitch. And if he has an accident, not only will the world be a better place, but the label fixin' to go bankrupt. And our client just bet against them big.
So look, we make the stock crash, our clients get some zeroes added on to their bank account, and we get a slice of the motherfuckin' pie. Now let's go put this lil' evil motherfucker in the wrong kinda headlines.
The Popstar GTA Online Payphone Hit Target

Police Intimidation

Client got a sense of humor. He'll throw in a bonus if we make this dude trash his rep on the way down. Grab a police cruiser and tail his ass - hard, sirens on. This motherfucker's always got a stash in the car, with any luck he'll freak out and do your job for you.

The player must collect a Police Cruiser and follow the target, intimidating them. Once the target is intimidated enough, they will crash and blow up their car, dying in the process.

The player will be provided with the location of a lowrider, and must perform a drive-by using them, so that the assassination looks like a gang attack.

Payphone Hit: The Tech Entrepreneur

Ey, this target is one of the most successful tech entrepreneurs in the world, but you ain't never even heard of his damn name. Now this motherfucker? He keeps a low profile, even though he designed half the fuckin' apps on your damn phone: you know, social media, video-sharing, photo-sharing, messaging... you name it, this dude wrote it. And get this: as of tomorrow, he's goin' push what looks like a routine security update, but really it's a backdoor so he can sell all your data to the highest bidder. Fuckin' son of a bitch. He don't care how many people he bankrupt, as long as his fuckin' ass is sitting at the beach in the Caymans next to ten figures in his fuckin' bank account. He got every crooked investor with an internet connection lookin' to buy his stocks once the update hits.
But check this out: one of those investors had an even better idea, and he came to me with it. He's goin' bet against the stock, then we take this bitch down, our client cashes out, and we make bank.
We just got intel that the target is fucked up right now at some charity event, and fired his driver for the fuckin' tenth time. And he just ordered a cab, but I got Imani to cancel that motherfucker. Dude should be right outside.

Payphone Hit: The Trolls

Alright, look, so the internet is a huge and terrible place that I still don't understand, but the bottom line is: we got some trolls out there banding together to fuck with the stock prices. I've seen some creepy-ass nasty stuff on they message boards, and they got the whole fuckin' army out there dumping and pumping their shit wherever they like.
