Caida Libre In GTA 5


Caida Libre is a storyline mission in GTA V. This mission has to be completed with protagonists Michael De Santa and Trevor Philips.


In this mission, Michael and Trevor are summoned by Martin Madrazo, who has a critical task for them. Madrazo's cousin, Javier, plans to testify against him, posing a significant threat. Madrazo instructs them to eliminate Javier and recover vital documents.

Initially, the player takes on the role of Michael, who heads to the Galileo Observatory, where a specially equipped van awaits. Inside, there's a powerful rifle mounted in the rear. Michael must use this rifle to shoot down the Air Emu Shamal transporting Javier to Los Santos International Airport.

The rifle features a unique targeting display, aiding Michael in hitting the engine. The Shamal's path is challenging to track, but Michael successfully takes it down with three shots.

Following the plane's damage, control switches to Trevor, who pursues the descending aircraft on a Sanchez motorcycle. Trevor chases the Shamal through various terrains, including a tricky jump. Once the plane crashes, Trevor's task is to eliminate Javier and secure the sensitive documents aboard the Shamal.

After Trevor retrieves the documents, control shifts back to Michael. He locates a van near the Galileo Observatory, uses it briefly, and then destroys it. Michael's plan is to deliver the documents to Madrazo, but a phone call from Trevor changes everything. Trevor reveals that he has other intentions and instructs Michael to meet him at Stoner Cement Works, where he unveils a shocking surprise:

Trivia


  • The Remote Sniper that Michael uses in the van to take the plane down is similar to the weapon that Bruce Willis uses in the film The Jackal.[1] The weapon may also be a reference to the 2003 film, S.W.A.T., where an LAPD A109 is shot down by the antagonist, using a setup similar to the van.

  • "Caida Libre" is Spanish for "free fall".

  • When Trevor says Michael was scouting the house for a heist, it is a reference to a cut beta heist known as the The Sharmoota Job, where Michael and Trevor would dress as either clowns or mimes and steal Aztec artifacts from Madrazo's house and kidnap Patricia.
