Scouting The Port Mission In GTA 5


Scouting The Port is a storyline mission in GTA 5 played as Trevor Philips. This mission is unlocked after completing Fame Or Shame.


In this mission, Trevor arrives at Floyd’s apartment. He gives them stolen worker outfits and drives them to the Port of Los Santos. On the way, Trevor asks Floyd, who works there, about anything valuable that has entered the port and that can be stolen. Floyd reveals that the Merryweather men have had high security and have been guarding a freight ship docked at the port for a long time now. Trevor asks for Floyd’s help to get photos of the ship. They enter the port and Wade is called by a superior to help with a sewage leak. After this, there are a few things to be done by Trevor and Floyd.



  • A merryweather guard asks Trevor and Floyd to move two containers.

  • A port boss on the crane that Trevor climbs for photos asks him to load two shipping containers onto tractor trailers.

  • After loading the containers, Trevor has to take pictures of the ship following the instructions and send them to Ron.

  • Floyd takes Trevor to the warehouse in Los Santos Naval Port, which they go to in a trailer pretending to make a delivery. The Merryweather guards there start beating up Floyd, while at the same time, Trevor has to take the briefcase and leave the restricted area.



Trevor returns back to Floyd’s apartment and finds Wade there, covered in sewage. He writes down the plan of the heist on one of the walls in the apartment and has to select an approach.



If the Freight approach is selected, only the Minisub setup mission is unlocked. Trevor will also send a text message to Franklin, asking him to improve his aim at the Ammu-Nation Shooting Range. If the Offshore approach is chosen, then the Minisub and the Cargobob setup missions are unlocked. Trevor will also call Michael, asking him to improve his flying skill at the Flight School.

Trivia


  • In the beta, the player originally had to move crates with a forklift racing Floyd, similar to the mission Robbing Uncle Sam from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

  • During the opening cutscene when Trevor is showing Floyd his penis, his genitals can briefly be seen when he takes off his pants and pulls them up later, making him the only protagonist in the series whose genitals can be seen briefly.
