Preliminary information

GTA missions

Before going into the details of how to do missions on GTA , I think you might be interested to learn more about the possibilities offered by the game, and more specifically from the fifth chapter of the Rockstar Games series, which is what I will focus on today.

Well, the story mode of GTA 5 allows you to “live” the stories of Franklin Clinton , Michael De Santa and Trevor Philips . It is a story in pure Grand Theft Auto style, full of twists and memorable missions .

As regards, however, GTA Online , the online mode of GTA 5, we can essentially speak of another game. In fact, Rockstar Games has set up one of the longest running games ever, constantly updating it with new missions and possibilities.

Just to understand, the title was originally launched in 2013 , but in 2019 it was still updated thanks to the excellent Casino and Resort Diamond extension , which gave fans a host of activities to carry out and a new reference place. In short, GTA Online is seen by the community as an “immortal” title, a great classic.

Among the myriad of possibilities offered by the game, you may get a little confused and no longer find the method to start the missions. Don’t worry: below you can find all the necessary procedures.

How to do GTA 5 Story missions

Starting from Story mode, actually learning how to do missions on GTA offline is very simple.

In fact, all you have to do is search the map (which you can access, for example, with the Options button on PS4 ) for the initial letter of the name of the character that allows you to start the mission (eg Lester’s “L” ).

In case you can’t find any main mission, you may have to change character , choosing from those you have available at the moment. To do this, just press the appropriate button (e.g. arrow down on PS4 ) and select the right character to continue the story with (the numbers you see next to the characters indicate the available missions).

Obviously, GTA 5 is a game full of activities to carry out and therefore you could make a little confusing and not find the primary missions . For this reason, I advise you to take this into account: to continue the story, you must go with your character to the places indicated only with the initial letter of the name of the person offering you the mission (and not with question marks or similar things ).

In any case, the title guides you from the beginning and you should have no problem doing the missions knowing the details I have just given you. If you want some advice, go from time to time to Ammu-Nation (indicated by the appropriate icon on the map) to buy new weapons and remember to stay behind the shelters as much as possible.

In fact, many novice players make the mistake of wanting to play “Rambo”, when in reality it is very important in GTA 5 to stay covered and shoot mainly from behind the covers, especially in those missions where there are many enemies involved.

In short, I assure you that with the right arsenal and paying a little attention, the Story mode of GTA 5 is easily completed and a lot of fun. In any case, if you can’t find certain missions, I suggest you consult the official Rockstar Games guidelines .

GTA Online is so boundless and full of activities to carry out that users often forget even the existence of missions created directly by Rockstar for this mode.

Fortunately, the developers introduced a quick method to filter the various activities available, including missions . To access the list of the latter and start the mission you want, just access the game settings (e.g. Options button on PS4 ), move to the ONLINE tab and go to the path Activity> Start activity> Create by Rockstar> Missions .

There you will find all the possibilities created directly by the developers of GTA Online, so these are official missions . You just have to choose the one you prefer (they can be played in random order, but take a look at the required rank) and start it.

If you have a keen eye, you may have already noticed that some activities can be played by multiple people and you are probably wondering how to do GTA 5 missions online with friends . Well, even in this case it is all very simple: once you have chosen the mission to play, you will access a preparation screen .

After pressing the Confirm settings button , you will enter the waiting room (if you want to invite friends, I recommend setting it to Closed , so that no other people enter). At this point, you just have to press on the My friends option , select who will play with you and invite them .

Of course, you and the people you invite will have to be friends on the platform you are playing on . For more details on this aspect of the game, I recommend you consult my tutorials on how to create a crew on GTA Online , how to join the GTA Social Club and how to join a crew on GTA 5 Online . In any case, inviting friends is very simple and, following the instructions I have just given you, you shouldn’t have any problems.

An aspect that could instead create a little more doubt is that related to the special missions added with the updates. In fact, in this case, the method to start the activities varies according to the characters involved.

Just to understand, I will give you a practical example: many are wondering how to do the casino missions on GTA 5 online. Well, the first thing to do is go to Mirror Park and talk to Lester (the green “L” on the map). Here the details of the casino missions will be explained.

After talking to Lester, you need to open your character’s mobile phone (e.g. arrow up on PS4 ), press the Internet icon , go to the FINANCES AND SERVICES tab and select the Foreclosure Maze Bank box . After that, press the ENTER key and filter the results by GAMES ROOM (using the appropriate button on the top right).

In this way, only the game rooms that can be purchased are seen on the screen . In fact, you must know that it is necessary to buy one of these in order to start the missions related to the casino. You may have already noticed that some of these buildings cost millions of dollars . Don’t worry: now I will analyze the situation in detail.

Free GTA Online Game Room

Well, at the time of writing, all those who have an active subscription to Twitch Prime (which can be activated with Amazon Prime ) and who have linked their profile to that of Rockstar can obtain the Pixel Pete’s facility in Paleto Bay for free ( top left on the map).

In case you have not connected the two accounts, I suggest you follow the instructions on the official Rockstar website . In general, just log in to the Social Club profile , log in to the Twitch account and confirm the connection .

The structure that is given to you “as a gift” is not exactly the best place to plan missions, since it is very “out of the way” and does not have who knows what comforts, but it can be taken for free and therefore many players opt for this solution .

In any case, once you have purchased a game room (if you need money, I recommend you consult my guide on how to earn money on GTA Online ), you have to go inside .

In this way, a movie will start and you will be introduced to the possibility of starting the casino missions. Once the cutscene is finished, approach the computer , sit in the chair (e.g. right arrow on PS4 ) and start the laptop (e.g. X button on PS4 ). You just have to press the START button and you’re done.

At this point, the various casino-related missions will start . Initially, you will have to retrieve the equipment for your game room , then you will be introduced to all the necessary preparations . In short, I stop here to not give you too many advances, but now you also know how to access the special missions introduced with the various updates.

Just a clarification: in some cases, in order to start certain missions , you need to be a CEO , a boss or a MC president . In this case, I recommend you follow my guide on how to become a CEO on GTA Online , in which you will find all the details of the case to be able to start even the most advanced activities and return to CEO as soon as you have entered the session.

Perfect, now you know the missions available on GTA 5 and GTA Online at 360 degrees. Since you are a fan of the Rockstar Games series, I would advise you to take a look at the page of my site dedicated to GTA , where you can find countless tutorials that could be right for you.
