Uncalculated Risk is a Strangers and Freaks mission in Grand Theft Auto V, given to protagonist Franklin Clinton by Dom Beasley. Completing it contributes toward 100% Completion. The mission only becomes available after completing all 13 Parachute Jumps unlocked after the mission Risk Assessment; although all three characters can do the jumps, only Franklin can trigger this mission.
Along the shore of the Land Act Reservoir in the Tataviam Mountains, Franklin meets the same dog he discovered in Risk Assessment. Following the dog's guidance, Franklin heads to the Land Act Dam. There, he sees Dom preparing to jump from the dam without a parachute. After psyching himself up and taunting Franklin a final time, Dom jumps and, predictably, dies on impact. At this point, the player can complete the mission simply by walking away. The player can also complete the mission by jumping from the dam (there is a stairway to the left of where Dom jumped) and parachuting down to the river below.
To complete this mission, the player must:
- Listen to the dog near the Land Act Dam.
- Talk to Dom and watch him do his jump.
- Exit the immediate vicinity or execute a similar jump.
Gold Medal Objectives
- Leap of Faith - Also jump from the Land Act Dam and land.

"A hedge fund whiz kid was found dead earlier near the Land Act Dam, in an extreme sports stunt gone horribly wrong. Dom Beasley, according to his Lifeinvader page, was a base-jumping fanatic who had become addicted to chasing ever more dangerous highs, quite possibly to over-compensate for his soulless existence in the banking industry and his lonely contribution to the human race. No parachute was found on Beasley's body, suggesting that he either jumped, was pushed, or was simply an idiot."
The mission "Uncalculated Risk" starts at 23:02.
- The way that Dom jumps from the Land Act Dam looks strikingly similar to the way that James Bond jumps from the dam in the 1995 film 'Goldeneye'.
- The last parachute jump will be unlocked after the mission Hang Ten, when the Raton Canyon railway is cleared from the train debris from the mission Derailed, though the player may complete the jump if it is done prior to beating Derailed.
- There is a glitch that can cause this mission to not pop up, a video with several tips on how to force it to pop up can be seen here
- There is also a glitch (verified on the PS3 version) that prevents the Leap of Faith achievement by the mission ending before Franklin can get to the staircase down to the jump position.
- The achievement 'Leap of Faith' as well as the initial shot of Dom's jump are reference to the Assassin's Creed Series where the Leap of Faith is performed to survive jumps from extreme and fatal in-game heights.
