GTA 5: Deal Gone Wrong Random Event Guide

Multiple gangs inhabit Los Santos’s streets- the Ballas, Vagos, The Families, Madrazo’s Cartel, and even a cult called the Altruists. Most of these gang members will do nothing but talk trash at you for crossing their view as you pass by them on the street and will leave you alone most of the time.

There’s also the occasional gang war around town, where gang members from opposite gangs engage in random gunfights to the last man standing. You’ll do well to avoid these random gang wars unless they occur in the Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness.

We have outlined everything you need to know about the Deal Gone Wrong Random Event, including what it is, where you can find it, and the rewards you can expect to get from completing the Random Event in this guide.

What is the Deal Gone Wrong Event in GTA 5?

The Deal Gone Wrong is a Random Event where you will spot a group of gangsters lying on the ground post-shootout.

As you approach the scene, one of the gangsters tells you about a briefcase hidden at the hill’s bottom. Head to the bottom of the hill, and you’ll spot the briefcase. One of the gangsters close to the briefcase will warn you about it, but you should still take it anyway.

Deal Gone Wrong Random Event Rewards

The briefcase you retrieve from the Deal Gone Wrong Random Event contains $25,000 and serves as the event reward. You can also get $1000 from killing all the pursuing gang members, so it might be a good idea to just engage them in a gunfight rather than run away and escape.

Aside from the monetary reward for completing this Random Event, you will also check off 1 of 14 Random Events required to get 100% completion in GTA 5.

That Did Not Go According To Plan

The Deal Gone Wrong Event won’t be your only experience getting ambushed by gangs in-game, as some Main Story missions such as The Long Stretch, Hood Safari, and Lamar Down will give you a good taste of what it’s like to go against multiple gang members.

That said, you can get significant cash by taking out a couple of gang members in this Random Event. Refer to the guide above to find this Random Event and complete it to get up to $26,000 in cash.
