Bugstars Equipment Mission in GTA 5


Bugstars Equipment is a mission in GTA 5 given to Michael De Santa by Lester Crest if the player chooses the Smart Approach for the Jewel Store Job heist. This is the first setup mission for the smart approach of the main heist.


In this mission, Michael has to steal the Bugstars van from a warehouse in the Port Of Los Santos as part of the setup for the smart approach of the Jewel Store Job heist. This mission can either be done stealthily or by killing all four employees before stealing the van. Killing or alerting the employees will give you a 2-star wanted level whereas stealthily taking out the driver and stealing the van is required to receive a gold medal for this mission.

Michael then has to deliver the van to the location given to him by Lester after which the next setup mission is automatically triggered.
