"Slept with a cop last night. Woke up with handcuff marks, stubble burn, and intel on a raid they're doing on one of my labs. Dunno which one, but the chopper cordinating's coming in from the North East. Ron's setup some dune buggies at a good vantage point for you. Find the cops, take 'em out, and bring any equipment they appropriated."

Chopper Tail is a mission in Grand Theft Auto Online given to the player by Trevor Philips. It is available for up to 4 players.


The police are investigating one of Trevor's meth labs. Trevor doesn't know which one, but he has knowledge that a police chopper is coming from northeast, probably heading to the lab. Ron prepared a few dune buggies at the top of a hill just south of Sandy Shores, where the team needs to wait till the helicopter shows up. When the helicopter appears, the team will drive the buggies and follow the helicopter to the meth lab. The meth lab is in Great Chaparral, the team will need to eliminate a wave of LSPD officers investigating the area, and then steal equipment hidden in a Granger. The team needs to deliver the equipment to Trevor's trailer whilst being followed by few police cars.

Mission objectives

  • Go to the vantage point.
  • Get in a Dune Buggy.
  • Follow the helicopter.
  • Protect the meth lab.
  • Retrieve the equipment.
  • Deliver the equipment to Trevor's trailer.


  • Despite the rural setting, the police officers and police cars are from the city.
  • In one of the ending cutscenes, the camera will be facing in the garage, and sometimes the Granger will be hilariously glitching like crazy.
