'''The Merryweather Heist''' is a mission in ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]''. It is the second [[heists|heist]] mission in the game, given to [[protagonists]] [[Trevor Philips]], [[Michael De Santa]] and [[Franklin Clinton]].
+
'''The Merryweather Heist''' is a mission in ''[[Grand Theft Auto V]]''. It is the second [[heists|heist]] mission in the game that [[protagonists]] [[Michael De Santa]] and [[Franklin Clinton]] execute and the first to also involve [[Trevor Philips]].
  +
  +
As the mission [[Three's Company]] features the first meeting of Trevor and Franklin, it must be completed before the main heist is unlocked, though the preparation missions can be done in advance of this.
  +
  +
==Preparation==
  +
In order to perform the heist, Trevor must perform a couple of [[Heist Setups|preparation missions]] to obtain the necessary equipment. The number of preparation missions depends on the approach, though both approaches require the player to acquire a [[Submersible]].
   
==Methods==
 
===Offshore===
 
[[Michael De Santa|Michael]] uses a [[Cargobob]] to carry a [[Submersible]] with [[Trevor Philips|Trevor]] and [[Franklin Clinton|Franklin]] to find the target material underwater via a [[Trackify]] app. Afterwards, they will be attacked by [[Merryweather Security|Merryweather]] in [[Buzzard|helicopters]] and boats.
 
 
===Freight===
 
===Freight===
Michael plants bombs in a Merryweather freight in the [[Port of Los Santos]]. Franklin gives him covering fire with a [[Sniper Rifle]], while Trevor will pick the device.
+
For this approach, only one preparation mission ([[Minisub]]) is required. If this approach is chosen, Trevor phones Franklin and advises him to visit the [[Ammu-Nation Shooting Ranges|Shooting Range]] to improve his handling of a gun.
   
==Walkthrough==
 
 
===Offshore===
 
===Offshore===
''Make sure to complete the Flight School as Michael if you choose this method.''
+
Two preparation missions ([[Cargobob (mission)|Cargobob]], [[Minisub]]) are required for this approach. If this approach is chosen, Trevor phones Michael and advises him to visit the [[Flight School]] to improve his pilot skills.
   
Find a 4-seater car. Drive to the airstrip in [[Sandy Shores]]. 
+
==Mission==
  +
Depending on the chosen method in [[Scouting the Port]], the entire mission will play out in one of two ways:
   
After getting in the airfield, get in the [[Cargobob]] and go above the submersible and use the grappling hook to pick it up. Now fly to the test site on Paleto Cove, and after flying close to it, release the submersible in the test site.
 
 
Now you take control of the submersible underwater. Open up your cellphone, and the Trackify application will automatically trigger and locate the target. The map has a depth meter with an up and down arrow. The target is located 0.1 miles up the surface and 0 feet below sea level. Approach the device, and ascend to sea level.
 
 
You will take control of Michael again in the helicopter. Pick up the submersible by means of the grappling hook. Return to the airstrip, but a few moments later, the Merryweather Security appears in boats. Switch to Franklin and destroy them. Press the left and right on the D-Pad to switch sides of the helicopter. Once you switch sides, a helicopter is in there. Destroy the 2 boats and then the helicopter. More helicopters will appear, since you went out already on the waters. Kill the gunman on each helicopter, then kill the pilot or just destroy it. Now 2 helicopters, one of them WITH missiles will attack you. Kill them immediately and precisely.
 
 
Now all enemies are killed; continue flying to the airstrip, fly low and release the submersible. Mission complete.
 
 
===Freight===
 
===Freight===
''Make sure to complete the Shooting Range as Franklin if you choose this method.''
+
''Despite Franklin being advised to visit the Shooting Range, this is not compulsory''.
   
Find a 4-seater car, and drop Franklin on the side of Miriam Turner Overpass at the [[Port of Los Santos]]. After that, you will take control of Franklin; run to the vantage point. Time passes at dusk. Now Michael is at position at water
+
Trevor, Michael and Franklin meet at [[Floyd's Apartment]], where Trevor explains the plan. Trevor and Franklin get into Trevor's [[Bodhi|truck]] and drive to the [[Miriam Turner Overpass]]. Trevor drops Franklin off and Franklin heads to the vantage point. A few in-game hours pass and the mission resumes at dusk. The player is switched to Michael, who is waiting next to the [[SS Bulker|freighter]] in a [[Dinghy]]. Michael dives into the water and makes his way onto the freighter.
  +
[[File:MerryweatherHeist-GTAV-next.jpg|thumb|300px|From Michael's point-of-view.]]
  +
Michael boards the freighter and makes his way inside, whilst Franklin covers him by killing the guards with a sniper rifle. Franklin kills the guards, and Michael plants four [[Sticky Bomb]]s in various positions on the ship.
  +
At this point, Michael is spotted by some other guards. The player is switched to Franklin, who kills the guards pursuing Michael and shoots down a Merryweather [[Buzzard|helicopter]]. Once the guards have been killed, Michael leaves the freighter and detonates the bombs once a safe distance away, which sinks the freighter.
  +
The player regains control of Michael, who is searching the freighter's wreckage using [[Scuba Suit|dive gear]]. Michael locates the device, and is collected by Trevor, who is piloting a [[Submersible]]. On shore, Floyd uses a crane to lift the Submersible onto the dock. At this point, [[Lester Crest]] arrives wearing hospital clothing, and warns the trio that the device they've stolen is a highly-dangerous super weapon and that they must return it immediately. Trevor refuses, but Michael promises to find another "score" for Trevor. Lester leaves with Floyd to return the device, while Michael and Franklin drive off, leaving Trevor alone on the harbour.
   
As Franklin, snipe the guards on the freighter using the sniper rifle with the thermal scope. Try firing if and only if they are far from each other. If you missed a shot, kill the guard you are supposed to kill immediately before the alarm is raised.
+
===Offshore===
  +
''Despite Trevor advising Michael to visit the Flight School, this is not compulsory.''
   
After killing all guards on the ship, you will now switch to Michael. Trevor has 4 spots for the bombs to be planted. 
+
Trevor, Michael and Franklin meet at Floyd's apartment, where Trevor explains the plan. Trevor, Michael and Franklin get into Trevor's truck and Michael drives them to the [[Sandy Shores Airfield]].
  +
The trio arrive at the airfield, where Trevor enters the [[Submersible]]. Michael uses the [[Cargobob]] to lift the Submerisble, and they fly to the Merryweather test site in the [[Pacific Ocean]], near [[Paleto Cove]]. Michael releases the Submersible close to the test site, and Trevor uses a [[Trackify]] app to locate the device. Trevor finds the device and ascends to the surface. The player is switched to Michael, who lifts the Submersible out of the ocean with the Cargobob. En route to the airstrip, the Cargobob is attacked by Merryweather helicopters and boats, but Franklin manages to fend off the pursuers with a [[Minigun]].
   
Switch between the two (Michael and Franklin) while planting the bombs. 
+
Michael lands the Cargobob back at the airfield. At this point, Lester Crest appears and warns the trio to return the device as it is a highly-dangerous super weapon, and would make them targets for the authorities. Trevor refuses, but relents when Michael promises to find him another "score". Lester leaves with Floyd to return the device and Michael drives off with Franklin, leaving Trevor alone at the airfield.
   
Plant the bombs in the following:

+
===Freight===
#At the first mast
+
*Find a vehicle. - <small>(Trevor)</small>
#At the second mast
+
*Go to the [[Miriam Turner Overpass]]. - <small>(Trevor)</small>
After planting the first three, switch to Franklin to protect Michael as he enters the room. However, the alarm's raised and they have seen you. Take them down, and try using the RPG to flank groups. A [[Buzzard|Buzzard&nbsp;will]] appear. Kill the pilot quickly, as he uses the miniguns to kill you faster. Once it is destroyed, continue firing. Michael will come out as he finished planting the bombs. Now kill all guards on the ship until Michael runs from the northern side and jumps into the water!

Three's Company

The Merryweather Heist is a mission in Grand Theft Auto V. It is the second heist mission in the game that protagonists Michael De Santa and Franklin Clinton execute and the first to also involve Trevor Philips.

As the mission Three's Company features the first meeting of Trevor and Franklin, it must be completed before the main heist is unlocked, though the preparation missions can be done in advance of this.

PreparationEdit

In order to perform the heist, Trevor must perform a couple of preparation missions to obtain the necessary equipment. The number of preparation missions depends on the approach, though both approaches require the player to acquire a Submersible.

FreightEdit

For this approach, only one preparation mission (Minisub) is required. If this approach is chosen, Trevor phones Franklin and advises him to visit the Shooting Range to improve his handling of a gun.

OffshoreEdit

Two preparation missions (Cargobob, Minisub) are required for this approach. If this approach is chosen, Trevor phones Michael and advises him to visit the Flight School to improve his pilot skills.

MissionEdit

Depending on the chosen method in Scouting the Port, the entire mission will play out in one of two ways:

FreightEdit

Despite Franklin being advised to visit the Shooting Range, this is not compulsory.

Trevor, Michael and Franklin meet at Floyd's Apartment, where Trevor explains the plan. Trevor and Franklin get into Trevor's truck and drive to the Miriam Turner Overpass. Trevor drops Franklin off and Franklin heads to the vantage point. A few in-game hours pass and the mission resumes at dusk. The player is switched to Michael, who is waiting next to the freighter in a Dinghy. Michael dives into the water and makes his way onto the freighter.

MerryweatherHeist-GTAV-next

From Michael's point-of-view.

Michael boards the freighter and makes his way inside, whilst Franklin covers him by killing the guards with a sniper rifle. Franklin kills the guards, and Michael plants four Sticky Bombs in various positions on the ship. At this point, Michael is spotted by some other guards. The player is switched to Franklin, who kills the guards pursuing Michael and shoots down a Merryweather helicopter. Once the guards have been killed, Michael leaves the freighter and detonates the bombs once a safe distance away, which sinks the freighter. The player regains control of Michael, who is searching the freighter's wreckage using dive gear. Michael locates the device, and is collected by Trevor, who is piloting a Submersible. On shore, Floyd uses a crane to lift the Submersible onto the dock. At this point, Lester Crest arrives wearing hospital clothing, and warns the trio that the device they've stolen is a highly-dangerous super weapon and that they must return it immediately. Trevor refuses, but Michael promises to find another "score" for Trevor. Lester leaves with Floyd to return the device, while Michael and Franklin drive off, leaving Trevor alone on the harbour.

OffshoreEdit

Despite Trevor advising Michael to visit the Flight School, this is not compulsory.

Trevor, Michael and Franklin meet at Floyd's apartment, where Trevor explains the plan. Trevor, Michael and Franklin get into Trevor's truck and Michael drives them to the Sandy Shores Airfield. The trio arrive at the airfield, where Trevor enters the Submersible. Michael uses the Cargobob to lift the Submerisble, and they fly to the Merryweather test site in the Pacific Ocean, near Paleto Cove. Michael releases the Submersible close to the test site, and Trevor uses a Trackify app to locate the device. Trevor finds the device and ascends to the surface. The player is switched to Michael, who lifts the Submersible out of the ocean with the Cargobob. En route to the airstrip, the Cargobob is attacked by Merryweather helicopters and boats, but Franklin manages to fend off the pursuers with a Minigun.

Michael lands the Cargobob back at the airfield. At this point, Lester Crest appears and warns the trio to return the device as it is a highly-dangerous super weapon, and would make them targets for the authorities. Trevor refuses, but relents when Michael promises to find him another "score". Lester leaves with Floyd to return the device and Michael drives off with Franklin, leaving Trevor alone at the airfield.

  • If the offshore method was chosen, after the mission ends, the Submarine can be found in a small courtyard by the side of the warehouse in the Sandy Shores Airfield. The player will need a Cargobob to take the submarine back to water so it can be used (normally found in Fort Zancudo, see below).
  • In the beta, Wade was wearing a Juggalo makeup in the initial cutscene of the freight method.
  • No matter which method is chosen, EyeFind will still report that the freighter was attacked, however, the Bleeter posts will be different. 
  • The Submersible used during this mission is much more durable than the one found at the Sonar Collections Dock. It is able to withstand the pressure at the farthest point (0.15 miles) that the player can descend to in the ocean.
  • Scenes from both approaches of this mission appeared in the Official Trailer for GTA V.
  • Franklin will receive an e-mail from Brother Adrian after this mission, asking him to go to their website to join the Children Of The Mountain brotherhood.
  • Although listed as the second heist, it is possible to engage in the third heist, "Blitz Play" first, making this the third heist.
  • The ship phase is similar to the one in Bomb Da Base Act II where in Franklin has to take out some Merryweather goons with a Sniper Rifle to cover Michael similar to how Claude has to protect 8-Ball from the Colombian Cartel. In both instances, Michael and 8-Ball have to plant bombs on a ship.

GlitchesEdit

  • A glitch can occur after this mission is completed. If Michael bought weapons from a gun shop before this mission, they will disappear when finishing this mission. The cause of this glitch is unknown.
  • There is also a glitch present during the freighter apporach. The optional achievement of 80% accuracy will not be awarded even if the player's accuracy is 100%, making it impossible to achieve a gold medal for this mission. This can be fixed by deleting the patch (which could only be deleted in a cracked console or with a PC.) and ignoring the game's request to reinstall the patch. This glitch is not present in the offshore approach.
