GTA most insane missions
We all know one thing about Grand Theft Auto and that is its creativity and variety. Rockstar's series redefines the open-world genre every time a fresh game is released. Each location is packed full of stories to tell, toys to play with, and missions to accomplish. Although most are delivered with a wink and a dark sense of humour, some missions are so wonderfully weird that they stick in the memory long after completion. Lets check out the list of top 5 WTF missions in GTA series.
Black Project (GTA: San Andreas)
This mission is assigned to CJ by The Truth. This mission involves infiltrating Area 69, in search of a top secret project. What follows is a mission that trades San Andreas' gang-banging tropes for a cheesy sci-fi trip that caters to the conspiracy theorist in all of us. The highlight of our WTF mission (alien references and Half-Life shout-outs notwithstanding) is scoring a shiny new jet pack, which makes traveling San Andreas immediately 500% more fun, and 1000% more open to shenanigans.
Risk Assessment (GTA 5)
While GTA 5 contains a manner of murder mysteries and alien signals, nothing is as WTF as this mission. Out of nowhere Franklyn is confronted with a Labrador Dog who strangely strikes up with a conversation and he quickly works out that the hound wants him to follow. He finds a pair of skydivers trapped in a tree. Once he rescued the poor guy, Franklyn tells the skydiver that he's got a cool dog. The reply is baffling, as is the fact it's never, ever explained: "What dog?" The dog is gone, and we never see or hear about it again.
In the Air Tonight (GTA: Vice City Stories)
Random A-list cameo aside, working for Reni is an exercise in WTF from the start. It isn't even the multiple sex-change operations that furl our brows, but the fact we're risking life and limb for an avant-garde director who dabbles in child torture and rhino sex flicks. The icing on Reni's WTF cake is having to defend Phil Collins from deranged hitmen while he croons for a conspicuously empty stadium. Remember, this isn't some C-level voice-alike, either - this is Mr. Su-Su-Sussudio himself, who now maintains the record for most substantial celebrity cameo in a GTA game.
Body Harvest (GTA: San Andreas)
Initially a ho-hum stealth mission, Body Harvest quickly devolves into a combine splatterfest that pits CJ and his farmyard murder machine against an army of outdoor nutjobs. It's a wild romp through mother nature, set to the soundtrack of broken bones and gurgled screams. It's bloody, it's ridiculous, and it's a well-received break from San Andreas' typical buffet of guns, gangs, and street level chaos. Now, does anyone know how to clean fascists out of a thresher drum?
Publicity Tour (GTA: Vice City)
Publicity Tour's gameplay isn't altogether zany. What secures this mission a display in our WTF Hall of Fame is the ridiculous premise and hilarious scripting which depicts Love Fist coming to grips with their mortality while chugging drinks and trying to defuse a bomb. Publicity Tour has zero bearing on Tommy's personal journey, but it remains one of our more cherished Vice City stories to date.
