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.
