―Conversation between Elwood O'Neil and Trevor Philips.

Crystal Maze is a mission in Grand Theft Auto V that protagonist Trevor Philips does independently.


Trevor arrives at the Yellow Jack Inn and confronts Tao and his translator. When they mention they want to pursue other jobs, Trevor threatens them to tell him who they are working with, the O'Neil brothers. Trevor, now furious, proceeds to the O'Neil ranch, calling to threaten Elwood O'Neil on the way there. Upon arrival, Trevor kills the guards and goes to the basement where the O'Neill's meth lab is located. Trevor then picks up a gas can and leads a gas trail outside through the house, where he can use any weapon to ignite the trail. This causes the house to explode. Trevor then leaves the area.

The Senora Beacon Newspaper

"Police in Blaine County are requesting increased resources from the state to deal with the latest outbreak of drug-related violence. The highly lucrative crystal methamphetamine trade seems to be headquartered in the towns around the Alamo Sea, while it is also believed several Mexican cartels also have a presence in the area. Police have attributed several recent massacres to an on-going turf war thought to involve four or five gangs from Los Santos and two or more local operations. Some recent shootouts have been so bloody, some local politicians are calling for increased firepower and have requested either military or paramilitary support to control recent events. Don Percival, CEO of Merry Weather has offered his company's services."

  • @calliejj16 - "shit anotha meth lab destroyed at the alamo sea gettin very worried about my supply"
  • @grapeseedcharlie - "Just heard about the massacre up at the O'Neils. Whole farmhouse burned to the ground. Never liked the bastards but that aint right."


  • The name comes from the British game show The Crystal Maze, as a pun that it's a crystal meth lab and that the access to the basement lab is sort of a maze (not mentioning the trail of gas that Trevor must leave in order to ignite the place).
  • This mission was first revealed in the second GTA V trailer.
  • In the trailer, Trevor ignites the gas with a Molotov cocktail while in the artwork he uses a Zippo lighter, but in the game, it can only be ignited by shooting the gas, unless the player has Molotovs, which can be obtained at an old dock in western Sandy Shores. The player can throw it at the trail or through one of the windows to start the fire.
  • As Trevor enters his Bodhi, the radio will be tuned to Los Santos Rock Radio and a predetermined track, 'What a Fool Believes' by The Doobie Brothers, begins to play. Trevor will comment on this, angrily stating that the music is "...all fucking wrong" before switching to Channel X, where 'Abolish Government/Silent Majority' by T.S.O.L will be playing. This humorous occasion discreetly pokes fun at The Doobie Brothers member Kenny Loggins, who co-wrote 'What a Fool Believes' and is also the DJ for Los Santos Rock Radio.
    • This is one of the two times in the GTA Universe that a protagonist will change the radio station on their own. The first being in GTA IV, when Niko Bellic turns the radio off in That Special Someone.
  • The house explosion scene is similar to the house explosion from the I Am Number Four film.
  • If you try to enter the house, you will catch on fire. However, Trevor will be unable to roll himself out of the fire, he wll continue to burn until he is killed.
  • Even if Trevor does not answer the phone when Elwood O'Neil calls he will still tell his brothers that he just spoke to Trevor.
