GTA 5: Paparazzo - The Tape Mission Guide (Gold Medal)

Beverly recognized Franklin’s capabilities when they met in the first Paparazzo mission. After that mission, Beverly would call Franklin several times to ask for help taking pictures and recording videos of various stars around Los Santos.

Paparazzo – The Tape is the second mission in the Paparazzo series of Strangers & Freaks missions involving Franklin and Beverly Felton, where the pair spy on Poppy Mitchell and her co-star Justin at the Gentry Manor Hotel in West Vinewood.

In this guide, we have outlined everything you need to know about Paparazzo – The Tape and how you can get a Gold Medal for completing the mission in GTA 5.

To catch both celebrities in the act, Beverly asks Franklin to follow him to a house where the targets are. Franklin and Beverly carefully enter the Gentry Manor Hotel, avoiding staff and security and eventually spotting Poppy Mitchell and her co-star.

Beverly hands Franklin his camera and asks him to record both stars in the act. Franklin agrees and records a few seconds of the video clip before Poppy Mitchell spots him and Beverly watching from behind the bushes.

Beverly and Franklin escape by running toward the Gentry Manor Entrance, where Beverly’s vehicle is parked. Franklin and Beverly try to escape, but Poppy Mitchell chases after them in her vehicle and is followed closely by her security team.

With Beverly on the wheel, he asks Franklin to record Poppy Mitchell from the trunk of their escape vehicle.

With the coast clear, Beverly drops Franklin along Del Perro, thanks Franklin for his time, and promises to compensate Franklin for his efforts in due time.

Shoot and Run

Beverly promises Franklin a handsome payday for helping with Beverly’s paparazzi stakeout jobs. Franklin is still skeptical about this promise but will not let a chance to earn some good money slip by.

Getting the Quick Dip Gold Medal Objective is almost a given since you can complete the objective by just dipping Franklin’s shoes in the pool and quickly heading toward Poppy and Justin’s location inside the house.

Money Shot is more challenging, but you should get a good shot of Poppy Mitchell’s face during the chase since she will try to crash into Beverly’s car, allowing you to get a full facial shot of the actress on Beverly’s camera.

Follow the tips in the guide section above to get both Gold Medal Objectives in a single run.
