"Congratulations, Mikey, we did it. Such a pleasure working with you. You see. I was here. Unlike your wife. She seems to be...stuck at home."
Devin Weston

Meltdown is a mission in Grand Theft Auto V, given to protagonist Michael De Santa by Solomon Richards.


Michael and Jimmy attend the Meltdown premiere at the Oriental Theater on Vinewood Boulevard. On the red carpet, Michael notices that Amanda and Tracey are nowhere to be seen; Devin Weston appears and informs him that he has sent Merryweather agents to deal with his family.

Michael rushes to his house and fights off hordes of agents to keep his family safe. After being incapaciated by one agent, Jimmy comes to his rescue and knocks him out. Michael tells his family to lay low while he makes some calls.

Mission objectives

  • Buy a tuxedo in Ponsonbys to attend the Meltdown premiere.
  • Meet Jimmy.
  • Get in the limousine.
  • Go to the red carpet.
  • Save your family.
  • Go to your family.


  • On the end of the mission, Jimmy makes a reference to FPS games nowadays, the camera changes to his perspective (First-person view), he enables nightvision by using nightvision goggles, brings both of his hands infront of him and, using his bong like a melee weapon, takes down the mercenary and then tea-bags Michael by accident, this scene might gives us a clue, that Jimmy is influenced by shooters.
  • This is also a reference to the Splinter Cell series with the iconic Trifocal Goggles, as well as the night vision sound heard when the goggles are equipped.
  • This mission keeps resemblance with the intro to Max Payne featuring both protagonist coming back home to find it overrun by mercenaries, both having their respective wife and daughter inside the house, and both using bullet-time to fend off their attackers. However unlike Max, Michael earns his victory with his family unscathed.
