Gauntlet is a three-part heist setup given by Lester Crest in Grand Theft Auto V involving the acquisition of three Bravado Gauntlets.


Lester will send a text message to each one of the three protagonists relating that he needs three modded Gauntlets for the heist. He will inform the three locations:

The player will have to buy all the required upgrades for the heist instructed on screen. Afterwards, the player needs to deliver the car to a lock up nearby.

There's no order to collect the Gauntlets and the player is also able to choose when he will collect the cars.

Mission objectives

  • Take the getaway vehicle to Los Santos Customs.
  • Purchase the vehicle mods required for the job.
  • Take the getaway vehicle to the lock up.
  • Leave the vehicle in the lock up.

Gold Medal Objectives

(For all three Gauntlets)

  • Mapped - Deliver the Gauntlet pictured in the email.
  • Not a Scratch - Deliver the Gauntlet with no damage.
  • Pimped Out - Spend $17000 modifying the Gauntlet.


  • Players should consider that upgrading the Gauntlets costs money, thereby reducing the profit available from competing the final heist. The Obvious method also involves upgrading a vehicle, but only one.
  • If Franklin has already purchased the Los Santos Customs in the Grand Senora Desert, he will receive free modifications on cars he brings in. This glitches this mission out, however. The modifications are actually still full cost, and drain Franklin's money accordingly, but the game thinks they are "free", and counts nothing towards the Pimped Out requirement.
