The Long Stretch is a mission in Grand Theft Auto V, given to Franklin.


At the start, Lamar reintroduces Stretch, who seems to have been just released from prison, to Franklin. Franklin doesn't seem too happy about his comeback. Franklin and Stretch argue with each other but then Lamar reminds them of business. Franklin, Lamar and Stretch head over to Ammu-Nation and purchase a weapon, just in case things go wrong (If Franklin cannot afford some then Lamar will loan him $1500). They then drive to a warehouse where they meet up with D, whom Franklin and Lamar kidnapped earlier with help from Chop.


Escaping the warehouse.

What at first appears as a deal, turns out to be an ambush by the Ballas; D betrays them and Stretch shoots and kills him.

Franklin and his two friends fight their way out of the warehouse. Then they realize that the police are just outside and have a police helicopter hovering over them, Franklin takes out the policemen in the helicopter. The trio make their way to the roads where they steal a vehicle to get away from the police.

The trio than drive back to Franklin's house after losing the cops.

Mission Objectives

  • Go to the Ammu-Nation.
  • Buy a Pump Shotgun with a flashlight attachment.
  • Go to the warehouse.
  • Flee the shooting at the warehouse.
  • Lose the police.
  • Return to Franklin's House.

Gold Medal Objectives

  • Accuracy - Finish with a shooting accuracy of at least 60%.
    • Use the shotgun, as it only takes one shot to kill enemies.
  • Headshots - Kill 10 enemies with a headshot.
    • Aim for the head with the shotgun. Neck shots count.
  • Unmarked - Complete with minimal damage to health and armor.
    • There is lots of boxes and plenty of cover in the warehouse.
  • Time - Complete within 10:30.
    • Skip the cutscenes, steal the Cavalcade and use the ability to lose the cops. Try find a closed area like the subway tunnel next to Mile High Club or the metro tunnel off the freeway or below Mirror Park.


Los Santos Shepherd Newspaper

"Something went very wrong as a drug deal at a recycling plant in La Puerta descended in to a violent shootout, leaving several gang members dead and police confused as to what has caused these recent upserge in extreme gang crime. The dead mostly seemed to be affiliated with the notorious Ballas gang. If this was an internecine struggle between different "sets" within the gang, or part of the Balllas eternal struggle with The Families, or a falling out with another of the city's many street gangs, is at this point unclear. The LSPD called for additional funding to look into the program and potentially restart some of their long since discredited anti-gang programs. Vinewood has applied for the movie rights to yesterday's events."

Something went very wrong as a drug deal at a recycling plant in La Puerta turned into a violent shootout, leaving several gangmembers dead, and police confused as to what has caused this recent upsurge in extreme gang crime. The police have called for calm, and responded by flying a lot of helicopters over poor neighborhoods all night long in a show of community spirit.



The mission in the enhanced version.

  • Scenes from this mission first appeared in the second GTA V trailer, and later in Franklin's character trailer.
  • While Franklin, Lamar and Stretch are going to the warehouse, Franklin says that he has a feeling that this is going to be one of that drug deals that always end up wrong, this could be a reference to the GTA tradition of always making any deals that occur end up going wrong, it could also be a reference to real life drug deals which pretty much the same thing happens.
  • This is the first mission in the game in which it is required to destroy a helicopter. It is also the first mission which allows the player to kill police officers in the main story of GTA V, as you can kill North Yankton State Patrol officers in the Prologue.
  • The driver of the Jackal can be spared if the player steals the car before Stretch shoots him.
    • Be careful when you jack the driver, as sometimes he'll become hostile instead of fleeing and will try to pull you out from the vehicle while you're waiting for Stretch and Lamar. This can be dangerous if the cops are arriving at the scene. It's always good to scare him with the gun or kill him.
  • If you already have the pump-shotgun when going to the gun store Lamar tells you "get your shotgun a flashlight modification." If you don't have the shotgun already, Lamar will tell you to "get a pump shotgun with the flashlight modification." Or if you have the pump shotgun with the flashlight modification Lamar will tell to buy any weapon or armour.
  • At the beginning of the mission, Lamar and Stretch will talk about Franklin's haircut (if he hadn't gotten a haircut yet). This also happens in the mission Reposession. This dialogue cannot be heard in replays of the mission however.
  • During the intro cutscene, Franklin finds his aunt Denise along a woman named Magenta and other ladies doing vagina clenching exercises. It is presumed that she's the same deleted Strangers and Freaks character for Michael.
  • Its possible to call Stretch after this mission, to hear unique dialogue between him and Franklin.
  • When Franklin leaves his house in the opening cutscene, there is a large amount of Families members in Forum Drive, even though in free roam, there is little Families presence near Franklin's house.
  • If the player destroys the second chopper, the game may glitch and get rid of the wanted level, which is useful for the timing achievement.
  • Franklin will always put on a jacket with jeans and shoes in this mission.
  • In the remastered edition, Lamar and Stretch can be seen driving away after the mission ends. If the player shoots the car, Stretch will step out and open fire at him. However, the player cannot shoot Stretch, as he is an important character to the story's plot.
  • If players do this mission after Franklin gets his second house, he will still enter as if he lives there. Oddly, sometimes in the opening cutscene, his room will still have his belongings, but as soon as the scene ends it will be empty.
