GTA 5 Strangers and Freaks Missions Walkthrough Guide

The optional objectives include using the stun gun before you kill the targets and to kill the duo before they leave the farm.

Nigel and Mrs. Thornhill
After the Friends Reunited mission is completed Trevor can go over to the question mark on the map to meet and greet this old couple. Approach them to trigger a cutscene in which they tell you that they’re looking for Vinewood movie star souvenirs and you agree to help out.

You get an email that puts some spots on the map where you can steal certain collectibles for the old codger.

Vinewood Souvenirs – Willy
Head to the orange circle at the Tequi-La-La Nightclub near Milton Road. Head through the main entrance and proceed forward. Time to collect.

You can find Willy, the singer near the stage talking to a woman. Grab him and start beating the daylights out of him. Bash him for a few seconds until a gold tooth falls out of his mouth. Pick it up and make your getaway.

The optional objectives are to take no damage from the fight and to talk to the entourage.

Vinewood Souvenirs – Tyler
Her to the orange map circle neat Mad Wayne Thunder Drive to find the humble home of Tyler Dixon, the next celebrity who will be donating a souvenir.

Sneak around to the pool, where you find Tyler and his girlfriend in the pool and the hot tub respectively. He’s conveniently left his clothing abandoned nearby and you can sneak around behind and snatch them. There is also a gardener around who you need to take down with a stealth attack for an optional objective.

The other bonus objective is to steal the clothes without being detected.

Vinewood Souvenirs – Kerry
Now you need to head to the Rockford Hills map circle to hit someone named Kerry McIntosh. As you approach the area, you will see the celeb walking her dog, Dixie. Dixie will get spooked and run when she sees you, and you need to chase after her.

Catch up to the canine as it stops near a fire truck. Approach and Trevor will steal the dog’s collar. The bonus objective is to stay close to the dog during the chase.

Vinewood Souvenirs – Mark
This one can be a bit difficult to get gold in. Grab a sniper rifle and drive right onto the orange circle in the Golf Club, you need to acquire one of Mark Fostenburg’s golf clubs.

You’ll find Mark on the course and if you approach he will try to flee. While it’s a simple matter to chase him down and take the club, you’ll fail the other requirements, which are to get the club in 30 seconds, kill Mark with a headshot, and kill all four of them (him and the three guards).

Park your car just as the party comes into view and pop Mark with a headshot from a distance to keep him from spooking. Get into a vehicle and collect the club quickly, then take care of the security team.

Vinewood Souvenirs – Al Di Napoli
Head to the ‘N?’ icon in the map to find Nigel and Thornhill. Apparently, they just saw Al Di Napoli and want to have a chat with him. Unfortunately, he already knows about the nutty couple and takes off in an SUV.

Get into Nigel’s car and give chase. You won’t be able to catch him, but you need to stay close or you’ll lose out on one of the optional objectives. There’s a bit where you both go through a hospital, so try not to hit anyone during this section, as that’s another medal requirement.

Soon the chase ends, Trevor dumps an unconscious Al into Nigel’s trunk and the batty duo drive off happily. The third optional objective in this is to finish with minimal damage to Nigel’s Car.

Vinewood Souvenirs – The Last Act
It seems that Al Di Napoli isn’t being a good guest and suggests to let him take care of it. Drive the car with Di Napoli over to the train tracks, where you have the option of letting him go free or leaving the car on the train tracks and killing him.

Trevor wants to be a good guy, really, but the gold requirement simply will not allow it.

To complete the optional objectives, you need to exit the car while it’s on the train track right at the last seconds and to kill Al using the train. This is easier if you come at the train at some speed, and dive out, letting the vehicle crash against the locomotive.

Bail Bond Missions

Strangers and Freaks Missions – Franklin

Grass Roots
Completing Three’s Company will unlock this mission for Franklin as well. Head over to the icon to find Barry, who once again tempts our hero into taking a drag of his joint. Franklin does so, then immediately informs Barry that his weed is garbage and crushes the joint underfoot.

Grass Roots – The Pickup
Barry manages to convince Franklin to help him deliver supplies to various Smoke-ins around the city. There will be two map markers now, each one noting the location of a vehicle with marijuana in it.

Follow the eastern map marker and take control of the truck there with the pot in it.

Be careful as you may gain a wanted level as you transport the goods to Barry’s apartment. The optional objectives include finishing in 2:45 and not being wanted by the police at any point.

Grass Roots – The Drag
Barry manages to convince Franklin to help him deliver supplies to various Smoke-ins around the city. There will be two map markers now, each one noting the location of a vehicle with marijuana in it.

Follow the western map marker and you’ll arrive at a scrapyard. The vehicle you need to use is an old and battered car that won’t start. Barry insists that the car is just as important as what’s inside, so you’ll have to get a tow truck and use it to drag the car to the assigned destination.

The optional objectives include completing the delivery in 1:30 and keeping the car hooked until delivery.

Grass Roots – The Smoke In
A very short mission, simply drive to the ‘B’ marker on the map with Franklin at City Hall. Franklin automatically calls Barry. Leave the area and you’re done.

Paparazzo
After completing the Pulling Favors mission, Franklin will be able to start up this mission from the new ‘?’ marker on the map. Approach the bushes next to the stairs and you’ll be jumped by Beverly, who introduces himself as a Paparazzo.

Before long, you both spot Miranda Cowan entering a limo. Beverly will immediately ask you to get on his motorbike and chase after. You need to pull next to the limo and keep it steady there while Beverly snaps off shots of what’s going on inside the vehicle.

Before long, a rival paparazzo appears and tries to steal your scoop. You need to get up next to them so Beverly can shove them off balance. The optional objectives include taking down the other paparazzo on the first shove attempt and getting off three photos.

Paparazzo – The Sex Tape
Take Franklin to the ‘P’ marker on the map to find Beverly just itching to go. Take him over to the Gentry Manor Hotel, where you and Beverly are going to try and get some nasty footage of some teen star getting it on.

Follow Beverly as you sneak about in an effort to find the target. On the way you find a pool that you should jump into for an optional objective. When you find the copulating couple, Beverly hands you his camera, which you need to use to film the activities.

Soon Poppy and Justin notice you recording them and call for security. Run after the Paparazzo as he escapes to the getaway vehicle. Beverly will drive you away and instructs you to keep filming the idol.

It can become significantly harder to keep the camera on the target during the high speed chase, but keep trying to get shots of her face. If the camera frame is green, then the shot is good, if it’s red, you need to adjust. Eventually you escape and the mission ends.

The optional objectives include jumping in the hotel pool while searching for the star and getting a good shot of Poppy’s face as she chases you.

Paparazzo – The Partnership
Once again, find Beverly at his ‘P’ icon. This mission will be made available after the completion of ‘Three’s Company’.

Beverly informs you of his new position as the star of a reality TV show. While he’s busy with that, he wants franklin to take care of the photo side of the business. He promises to send a bunch of targets by email and phone soon.

Paparazzo – The Meltdown
Soon after the last mission you’ll get news of two targets. Go to the marker at Vinewood Boulevard to find Poppy Mitchell (the star of our sex tape) involved in a high speed chase with the police.

Follow the blue radar marker to find Poppy’s pink car being chased by a police cruiser. Keep on after her as she makes her way through the streets. Eventually she crashes into a tree, stumbles out of the car and sits down on the curb.

Bring up your phone’s camera and zoom in on her. Wait until she’s in handcuffs and take the shot. Send it over to Beverly and drive off. The optional objectives are to stay close to Poppy throughout the chase and to take a photo of her after she’s been cuffed.

Paparazzo – The Highness
Of the two photo opportunities Beverly sends you, this is the one in Mirror Park on Nikola Avenue. When you get there you are informed of a drug deal going down which involves Princess Georgina of England. But first, you need to meet your contact.

Follow the route laid down for you and you’ll get a new objective. Now you need to take a photo of the deal going down. To do this stealthily (a medal requirement). Climb to the roof of Chico’s using a dumpster. Go to the higher roof section and activate stealth mode. Peek over the edge where the deal is taking place and take out your phone camera.
