The Merryweather Heist

The Merryweather Heist walkthrough
This robbery is entirely Trevor's initiative. The fact that Wade's cousin  – Floyd works at the port. It is in this same port bad mercenaries from Merriwether, took a warehouse building and there is something heavily guarded. Trevor is a curious person, especially when it may lead to increased investment in "Trevor Phillips Industries", so he decides to pay a visit there in order to find out whether there is something really interesting.

Soon all the guesswork confirmed. Mercenaries are holding some very valuable and top secret government cargo on Board of one of the moored to dock ship. Well, how Trevor might not come to decide to steal this thing from the ship?

The plan is quite ingenious, for Trevor, of course: the object you need can be steal either during the tests in the open sea, or swim stright to the ship on the mini-submarine, blow up the bulkhead and steal the container of goods. In both cases, the team will need mentioned mini-submarine.

Minisub can be obtained in the same port,  but from the other ship. It hangs on the ropes on Board ship, so to steal it is not particularly difficult. This ship is almost defenseless. If you chose the "noisy" version of the job, the preparation works for you is over, if you decide to work quietly, you also have to get a military helicopter Cargobob.

As is known, the initiator has the initiative, and the initiative has the initiator, so Trevor have to steal a helicopter from the military base alone. The helicopter is on a heavily guarded military base Zecundo.

During the performing of the "noisy" version of passing the team attacking the ship with the goods under cover of night, trying to remain unnoticed, they set bombs to blow up the ship, and Trevor takes the object on a submarine. Quickly, blood and effectively.

The Merryweather Heist walkthrough

Following Heist of GTA 5 single player mode is organized by Trevor. Quite by accident, he learns that a cousin of a member of his gang, Wade – Floyd works at the port of Los Santos, and in this very port entrenched mercenaries from Merriwether, of course not just for fun. Of course, it couldn't hide from Trevor and couldn't pass by his interest, because the good of Trevor Phillips Industries are first.

Scouting the Port

Scouting the Port - before the big deal
Dressed in dock workers, Trevor, along with Wade and Floyd, is sent to the port. As they arrive Wade instantly perform the demanding task of cleaning clogged sewers, and Trevor and Floyd go on to figure out what is valuable can be here to steal.

In this mission you have to faithfully play the role of a real working port. For starters, hop on the forklift and move the two containers from one place to another. After that, climb on a crane where you have to load two containers on the truck. Then, finally, you can do real work, namely: take a picture of the cargo ship, carefully guarded by warriors from Merryweather. When the photos are ready, send them to Tony. Then, go down, sit in the truck and head to the Merryweather's warehouse.

At the entrance you will stop by the guards, Trevor will have to act out a small scene, pretending like he doesn't know English. Floyd interfering in the situation, and mercenaries will be accepted excitedly to beat him up. At this point Trevor grabs the briefcase with a waybills from checkpoint booths. Feel free to leave Floyd in the lurch – he'll be all right, get in your car and drive back.


Minisub - steal the sub
Extracted information was sufficient to understand that Merryweather not in vain put such a heavy defence around warehouse. Certainly, they have something to make money. But first you need to obtain the required "materials", namely a mini-submarine in the same port, only on another ship.

Go to the port and follow the marker on the map. Submarine suspended from the crane on the port side of the vessel. There is just one poor fellow, whom you kill or stun on the way to the button, lowering the boat into the water.

However, to obtain the gold award you aren't allow to board the ship, so we need to shoot attachment holding the sub in the air, using a sniper rifle. In both cases, dive into the water, climb into the submarine and lead her to the place marked on the map. There you will have to wait for Floyd, he will raise the submarine with a crane and load it on the truck platform. Get in it and take the cargo to the marker on the map.

Once you grab the helicopter a military helicopter ran in pursuit, so just fly away from him at top speed, then take the Cargobob to the airfield in Sandy Shores. It's must be some kinfd of a miracle that the cargo helicopter manage to overtake a military chopper, but lets forget about it cuase it's just a game with games conventions.
