Grass Roots – The Pickup Mission Guide
Head to this parking lot in Murrieta Heights. Look for a green truck in one of the trailer parks.
Get in the truck but do not follow the yellow waypoint. Refer to the alternate directions below to avoid alerting the cops.
Make the first right out of the parking lot then turn left.
You will find this parking lot with the Jetsam container van. Drive through the barrier and make your way towards the back area of the parking lot.
Break through this barrier but do it in a way that allows the truck to fall down gently.
Cross the storm drain and drive along the right-side pathway.
Take the first right then cross the steel bridge.
Keep going straight after the bridge then merge into traffic like normal. You can now follow the yellow waypoint all the way to the target location.
Park the truck in the yellow marker then exit the truck immediately to save time. Move away from the area as quickly as you can to end the mission.
Beating Around The Bush
With the delivery complete, Barry is now one step closer to The Smoke-In, but there are still a few more preparations to make before The Smoke-In is green-lit.
Getting a Gold Medal in Grass Roots – The Pickup isn’t easy especially if you plan on taking the normal route. To get Gold in this mission, you need to take the back alley route through the Los Santos Storm Drain to avoid the LSPD. Follow the directions above to complete the Unwanted Outcome Gold Medal objective. Taking the Storm Drain route will shorten your travel time and hit the Time objective as well.
