GTA Online 'The Contract': New Business & Missions

In the years since he robbed the Union Depository with Michael and Trevor, renowned Los Santos hustler Franklin Clinton has been making moves of his own. He is now the manager of "F. Clinton and Partner", a new "celebrity solutions agency" catering to the Vinewood elite.

After partnering with Franklin Clinton in his Agency and setting up the business, you’ll work alongside new and familiar faces including Franklin’s longtime friend Lamar Davis, his loyal sidekick Chop, and the Agency’s elite in-house hacker Imani.

The Dr. Dre Contract:

DJ Pooh reaches out to Franklin with a big client, his close friend Dr. Dre, who had his phone and unreleased music stolen on his way to Cayo Perico last year. To recover and secure Dr. Dre's tracks and take the business to the next level, Franklin needs a reliable partner.

The story structure is similar to Heists / Robberies, with smaller prep missions, followed by a finale. These Missions can be played either solo or with other players.

Security Contracts:

Security Contracts are Freemode Missions that are launched from the Agency computer. These are jobs for your clients in need of help. Security Contracts have various difficulty levels that can increase the cash reward for completion:

  • Recover Valuables
  • Vehicle Recovery
  • Gang Termination
  • Rescue Operation
  • Asset Protection
  • Liquidize Assets

Payphone Hits:

Payphone Hits are Freemode Missions that task players with taking out a target and come with bonus rewards for meeting special criteria - such as using certain weapons, vehicles, killing at specific locations or timings.

These missions are started by answering ringing payphones throughout the map and can be accessed after completing a few Security Contracts.

GTA Online 'The Contract': Agency Property

The Agency Property has been added to GTA Online. This multi-floor, high-end office space acts as the base of operations for F. Clinton & Partner missions for solo players or groups.

The "F. Clinton & Partner" Agency has 4 possible locations to choose from. The cheapest Agency still costs over 2 million.

Available upgrades to The Agency include an Armory, a new Vehicle Workshop, and the usual customization options such as art, tint and wallpaper. It also comes with a 20-car Garage storage space.

GTA Online: 'The Contract' Update Number

Currently, the version history of GTA V / GTA Online is a bit confusing. The Contract Update is numbered in different ways in different places:

  • It's numbered 1.58 in-game as reported by the "GTA Online version"
  • It's incorrectly labeled as Title Update 1.55 on the Rockstar Support page
  • It's marked as "version 1.40" Title Update on PS4 (as PS4 follows a different version history)
