Go to the warehouse

gta 5 mission 23The warehouse is in Banning, Southeast of Maze Bank arena. Trevor will stay inside the warehouse torturing poor Mr.K until the very end of the mission.

Torture Mr.K

There are four devices you can use in order to extract information from Mr.K. Using all four of them counts for the completion of four tasks; one device for each task. The fifth task ”Don’t Stop Me Now” requires you not to cause Mr.K’s heart to stop during the interrogation.
gta 5 ElectrocutionerObtain ”Electrocutioner” to use jump lead clamps. Pay attention to Mr.K’s heartbeat, because this method can easily get out of hand.

gta 5 The Tooth HurtsObtain ”The Tooth Hurts” by using a pliers to pull out poor Mr. K’s teeth. With this device you have to quickly rotate the button to get a grip of the tooth.

gta 5 WrenchedObtain ”Wrenched” by using the wrench. This is a rather easy torturing method since Trevor extracts information after only one wrench swing.

gta 5 by the book Obtain ”It’s Legal!” by using the waterboarding technique. Immobilize Mr.K on his back in a chair and cover his face with a piece of cloth. Pour down the water from a gas can over Mr.K’s face. Keep in mind that while using this technique you should release the button on the can from time to time. Do not pour water constantly.

Drive to the locations Haines sent you to

There are two locations where Haines sends Michael. The first is a wrong one, it is Southwest of Michael’s house in Rockford Hills. The second and the correct one is at Chumash, The Western Highway.

Assassinate the target
