GTA 5: Drug Shootout Random Event Guide

There are multiple recurring Random Events in GTA 5, but only a few of them are ever worth doing from an effort to payout standpoint. The Drug Shootout Random Event is one of those events.

Despite being categorized as a Random Event, this event isn’t random, as it spawns at a specific time and place in-game. The only thing that’s random about this event is the monetary reward you can get for completing the event.

We have outlined everything you need to know about the Drug Shootout Random Event, including how to unlock/trigger the event, where you can find the event, and how to complete the event and collect the rewards in this quick guide.

What is the Drug Shootout Random Event in GTA 5?

The Drug Shootout Random Event is a recurring random event where you can raid a farm in Mount Chiliad to get a decent payout. This Random Event only spawns in the daytime every Tuesday.

You can only unlock this random event by going to the event location every Tuesday during the daytime and while playing as Trevor. You can return the week after and trigger the same event using Franklin or Michael.

How to Complete

As mentioned, you must go to the Random Event location using Trevor first and ensure you go on a Tuesday in the daytime, or the Random Event won’t spawn. If you successfully trigger the Random Event with Trevor, a farm icon should appear on the map.
