Grand Theft Auto V, developed by Rock-star North, is the fifth main installation and fifteenth game in the Grand Theft Auto series.
It is released in North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand on September 17th 2013 for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. The game is set in the city of Los Santos and follows the story of three protagonists: Trevor, Michael and Franklin.
“Freighter” and “Off-shore” are the two approaches to play The Merry-weather Heist which is one of the side missions in GTA V.
The mission can branch off in two different directions, depending upon the approach chosen. The “freighter” mission is triggered by Trevor while the “Off-shore mission” can be triggered by any three: Trevor, Michael or Franklin.
The outcome of the mission will be the same irrespective of the approach one chooses; but the player will have completely different walkthroughs.
The freighter approach will cause The Merry-weather Heist (freighter) and Mini-sub to be unlocked while selecting the “Off-shore” approach will grant access to The Merry-weather Heist (Off-shore), Mini-sub and Cargo-bob.
The freighter approach involves some snipping and putting bombs all over the freighter. Offshore, on the other hand, involves flying a submarine to the ocean with a helicopter and picking up an item with the submarine.
The mission requires killing 12 enemies with a headshot with a shooting accuracy of 80 percent and another 12 using stealth attacks. The container needs to be found within 60 seconds and in the end the player needs to get the ship into the interior without being detected.
