BZ Gas Grenades is a heist setup in Grand Theft Auto V given by Lester Crest to protagonist Michael De Santa. It is triggered by a phone message from Lester if the Smart approach for The Jewel Store Job heist has been chosen.


After Casing the Jewel Store has been completed, or if the player plays Bugstars Equipment before this mission is unlocked, Lester then either texts Michael that a Humane van travels across the state every day to take shipment to the airport, or tells him in a phonecall about the van and the shipment. These are the BZ gas grenades. After the text or call, an H will appear on the Radar. As soon as Michael approaches the H, the player will be instructed to steal the van or simply shoot the back doors and steal the cargo. Stealing the cargo by shooting the van in the back is also required for Gold Medal. When Michael delivers it to the garment factory, Lester congratulates him for the job and informs the heist crew that everything is prepared.

Mission Objectives

  • Steal the Humane van or its cargo.
  • Lose the Cops.
  • Deliver the BZ grenades to the garment factory.

Gold Medal Objectives

  • Loose Cargo - Shoot open the back doors to release the cargo.
    • Use a machine gun whilst on the freeway, wait for the doors to pop and quickly flee the area. A one star wanted level will be obtained, although it will be three stars if the player kills one of the guards in the Boxville.


  • An easy way to steal the Boxville if you're unable to get just the gas is once the van is boxed in on the side of the road, block its path to back out and be very careful as you exit your vehicle and enter the Boxville. The guards will try to kill you before you can get away or possibly even get in the van.
  • Besides just using caution with the guards, it is also advised to have a super fast getaway ride (most notably a sports car). However, this is only necessary if the guard has been killed before stealing the gas inside the van.
  • Another easy way to steal the van or just its gas is once the van is in your sight, do the following. 1) Pull up on the road (most likely the freeway) a good distance ahead of the van and exit your vehicle. 2) Using Michael's special ability, shoot the driver with either a shotgun or a pistol (it may take a few shots to shoot the driver).
