How to get started: Usually you will receive such orders from the contact persons via SMS. These roll in by themselves at irregular intervals. You can also call a contact person directly.

To do this, you have to select the desired contact on your smartphone and activate the “Request job” option. Then you will receive an order.

Some contact missions are only available in Free Mode. They are recognizable on the radar by a star mark, they cannot be seen on the map. Some are only available at a certain time / time of day.

All contact missions can be selected and activated directly in the pause menu. The order in which you complete these missions is up to you, but there are different levels of difficulty. The missions from the Lowriders content are also an exception - the corresponding missions must be completed chronologically.

Note that you cannot accept a contact mission if the police are looking for you. You can have your wanted level reset for a fee of $ 200 per level.

What do you have to do in contact missions? Orders vary depending on the contact person. These can be thefts, drug deals, contract killings and other tasks.
