MAIN MISSION #27 - Scouting the Port

Last Updated:
MAIN MISSION #27 - Scouting the Port
PREREQUISITES: MM #24 (Three's Company) & MM #26 (By the Book)
1. Time: Complete within 20:00.
2. Employee of the Month: Complete without damaging the containers.
3. Perfect Surveillance: Snap all 3 photographs of the boat as instructed.
4. An Honest Day's Work: Complete without causing a disturbance at the docks.

Head back to "Trevor's" safehouse to initiate this mission. Drive to the docks and follow Floyd to the container handler. You're supposed to grab the two containers standing at the other side of the area by moving the handler to their (long) side and picking them up (one at a time). Once the handler has been positioned correctly, lower it and attach the container with the right button. Move the container up a bit with the left analog stick and move it to the designated area, then lower it again with the left analog and detach it; do the same for the second container.

Climb up the nearby crane (indicated on your minimap) and enter the cabin by climbing the ladder down near your colleague. The goal here is to position the crane directly above the containers. You can switch viewpoints by pressing BACK/SELECT, and the right analog stick moves the crane left/right and up/back. Once you've attached a container, hoist it up and move the crane to the other end of the containers - the right side, where you can drop it off on the truck. Do the same for the second container.

You'll now have to photograph the front of the ship, a guard (there's one in the middle of the ship) and the back of the ship respectively and send these photos to Ron. Climb back down and drive the truck to the waypoint. Be sure you do not lose the container or the mission will fail; in other words, drive safely! A scene triggers when you reach the waypoint. Simply make a run for it and return to the safehouse.
