Mission 6 – Father/Son Full Walkthrough

To start this mission, go to Michael\’s estate in Rockford Hills. You can reach villa both as Franklin and Michael, but it is recommended to reach the mission\’s starting point as Michael. His son Jimmy will call and inform him that the family yacht has been stolen, and he is onboard of the boat that is being transported on land. Exit the villa and get onto Amanda\’s car (Ubermacht Sentinel). Wait for Franklin to join you and drive to Pacific Bluffs, a district neighboring the western motorway. After you near the point marked by the game, you should notice the truck with the stolen yacht.

You need to get close enough to the truck, for Franklin to jump onto the trailer. Follow the truck and try to avoid bumping into other cars while driving. Your task is to near the truck in such a way, as to enable Franklin to jump onto it and mount the yacht. Be careful while preparing for the jump by Franklin, as you cannot perform any abrupt movements with the steering wheel.

You can switch to the \”movie camera\” and watch over your companion\’s actions. You need to be ready to save Franklin\’s life by shooting on the head the opponent that Franklin is struggling with.

Soon, you will face another crucial moment where you have to rescue Jimmy. When Michael\’s son hangs over the highway, swiftly drive under the yacht\’s mast to catch Jimmy in your car (see the screenshot). Note that this action must be completed quickly to achieve a 100% mission completion. Then, follow the truck and let Franklin take another jump.

The Car Garage

After the unsuccessful attempt to retrieve the stolen yacht, Michael\’s car will fail. Follow Franklin\’s suggestion and head towards the Los Santos Customs car garage located in the Western part of the city (near the airport). Once you reach the designated area, park your car in the circle marked by the game and watch the cutscene.

Repairing Amanda\’s Car is Mandatory

The game will switch to Franklin, and you will play him until the mission ends. Drive up to the garage door, and to complete this part of the mission, choose the car repair option (which is free), or you can customize your car if you have enough money. After repairing the car, take Jimmy back home, and drive carefully to avoid damaging the car.
