Trevor steals a military transport chopper for the upcoming heist.
In Scouting The Port, Trevor and Wade tag along with Wade’s cousin Floyd in his day job at the Port of Los Santos. While the trio is at the port, Trevor asks Floyd if any shipment is worth taking. Floyd points toward a government ship heavily protected by Merryweather, piques Trevor’s interest.
Trevor later finds out from Ron that the ship contains valuable military equipment. Trevor rounds up Lester, Michael, and Franklin to steal the package from the ship through one of two ways – the Offshore Approach or the Freighter Approach. The former will require a Cargobob, which can be acquired through a separate heist setup mission.
We have outlined everything you need to know about the Cargobob mission and how you can get a Gold Medal for completing the mission in GTA 5.
Wade gives Trevor a heads up where he can find the Cargobob required for the Offshore Approach of the Merryweather heist. Wade’s tip brings Trevor to Fort Zancudo – a heavily guarded military base in Los Santos.
As Trevor breaks through the front gate, he gets a 4-star wanted level and is chased by every soldier and military personnel inside the base. Fortunately, he quickly finds the Cargobob in one of the helipads along the base’s main runway.
Trevor pilots the Cargobob to his airfield in Sandy Shores.
