— GTA V description at Rockstar Games Social Club
Elwood: "It's business fella. You wanna discuss it, we're at the farm. Ernie, Earl, Walton, Wynn, Dale, Doyle, Daryl, Dan - all of us."
Trevor: "Start writing those names on tombstones, 'cause I'm on the way to your lab and we're going to see how much of a family meth business you got when I'm done!"
Trevor Philips threatens Elwood O'Neil after discovering he and his brothers took the Triad contract from him

Crystal Maze is a mission in Grand Theft Auto V that protagonist Trevor Philips does independently at the Yellow Jack Inn in Sandy Shores, San Andreas.


Trevor arrives at the Yellow Jack Inn and confronts Tao and his interpreter. When they mention they want to pursue other jobs, Trevor threatens them to get them to tell him who they are working with, the O'Neil brothers. Trevor, now furious, proceeds to the O'Neil ranch, calling to threaten Elwood O'Neil on the way there. Upon arrival, Trevor begins a heavy assault against the guards and goes to the basement where the O'Neil's meth lab is located. Trevor then picks up a Jerry can and pours a trail of petrol outside and all through the house, he ignites the trail, causing the house to explode in a blazing inferno. Trevor then proceeds to leave the area.

Mission Objectives

  • Go to O'Neil ranch.
  • Kill all the O'Neil brothers and reach the meth lab.
  • Pick the Jerry Can.
  • Make a gas trail from the meth lab to the outside of the house.
  • Shoot the gas trail.
  • Leave the area.

Gold Medal Objectives

  • Headshots - Kill 10 enemies with a headshot.
    • Perhaps an oversight, your headshots only count for the 10 enemies who are clearly visible from the vantage point. There's two on the lower left most playing with pistols, one drinking on the left of the ground floor, one scouting and two chatting on the second floor, two chatting and two loading a van on the lower right.
    • If Trevor takes too long, two of the O'Neil brothers will finish loading the van and drive off. Trevor will comment on this. Normally this just mean you have two less enemies to worry about. But if you want all of the headshots you must kill those two before they leave. Ideally before they get into the van.
  • Unmarked - Complete with minimal damage to health and armor.
    • Killing all 10 enemies from the vantage point stealthily will greatly conserve your health and armor.
    • Some of the brothers are loading a van, letting them go makes things less complicated. However, killing them is required to get the gold medal.
    • When assaulting the building, going in from the back door will give you more cover.
  • 2 Birds 1 Stone - Kill 2 enemies with one shot.
    • Can be easily done as several brothers are having conversations, thus the bullet can kill them both linearly.
  • Accuracy - Finish with a shooting accuracy of at least 80%.
    • Using a low damage weapon will allow Trevor to score more hits should he miss too much earlier.


  • O'Neil brothers (Ernie, Earl, Dale, Doyle, Daryl, Dan, Ned, Dalton, Don, Larry, Chester and various other guards) - Killed by Trevor Philips for stealing his opportunity to work with the Chengs.

Trevor goes to the Yellow Jack Inn to see Tao Cheng and his translator.
Janet: You sure as shit are one dumb, ignorant, white trash, hillbilly, Wallis.
Wallis: You're damn right!
Trevor: Cheng, Spreadsheet, let's head outside and talk terms.
Translator: (in Chinese) Come, come, come! Hurry!
Trevor: Gentlemen, I think I have proved that my organization can handle weight. And I think I have proved that my organization is a reliable supplier. In short, it's you and me, now give me some of that Goddamn X.
Translator: I'm afraid we want to go down a different path.
Trevor: What?
Translator: We want to explore other opportunities.
Tao Cheng: (in Chinese) You big crazy man. You crazy. You want a massage?
Trevor: Shut the fuck up!
Translator: Our boss, Mr. Cheng's father, wants something a little larger. We want to move drugs, perhaps guns.
Trevor: This is my life's work. I mean, since I was a little kid, I dreamt big. Y'know, I've always wanted to be an international drug dealer and...weapons trader. Alright, so I'm begging you, let's make this happen.
Translator: I'm very sorry.
Trevor: You're sorry? You're fucking sorry?! I just spilled my fucking guts out to you and you say to me you're sorry. Who you working with? Hmm, who?
Translator: I'm not at liberty to say.
Trevor: Oh, no no no, you're at fucking liberty, in fact, I'd say you are obliged.
Trevor grabs a hold of Tao's head and starts beating him against the inn.
Trevor: Who? Fucking who, who, who, who?!
Translator: The O'Neil brothers.
Trevor: The O'Neil brothers, huh?!
Translator: Yeah.
Trevor: You shitting me?
Translator: No.
Trevor: 'Cause those fucking O'Neil brothers, I hear a little birdie tellin' me that they have a bit of a problem, since one of them's gonna have to be surgically removed from the skull of the other, fuck you guys and fuck them!
While Tao Cheng's translator tends to his injuries, Trevor gets into a vehicle that he arrived in and heads to the O'Neil Ranch in Grapeseed.
Trevor: Arghhhh!
The radio plays "What A Fool Believes" by the Doobie Brothers.
NOTE: The following dialogue will only play if the player doesn't change the radio station.
Trevor: (groans) This music's all fucking wrong! (changes the station to Channel X) That's what I'm looking for!
While Trevor heads to the ranch, he gets a phone call from Elwood O'Neil.
(Voice only):
Trevor Philips.
Trevor: Elwood O'Neil, fuck you. Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you!
(Voice only):
Trevor, it's business.
Trevor: That wide-eyed idiot was mine!
(Voice only):
It's business, fella. You wanna discuss it, we're at the farm. Ernie, Earl, Walton, Wynn, Dale, Doyle, Daryl, Dan - all of us.
Trevor: Start writing those names on tombstones, 'cause I'm on the way to your lab and we're going to see how much of a family meth business you got when I'm done! (groans)
Trevor hangs up.
  • All! Of! You! Are! Going! To! Die!
  • They're dead! All of them! Inbred hillbilly twats.
Trevor arrives near the ranch and heads to a vantage point to scope out the place. Meanwhile, the O'Neil Brothers are shown doing various activities, like pushing barrels and shooting cans of Sprunk. Elwood comes over to warn his siblings.
Elwood: I just spoke to that maniac Trevor, he's coming. Get down to the meth lab to protect it.
O'Neil Brother: Alright.
Elwood: I hope he don't get through these idiots, but...we know they're idiots. Come on, let's go see them Chinese fellas.
While the other O'Neil brothers go to protect the ranch's meth lab, Elwood and his two other brothers leave in a Dubsta.
Trevor: (not in subtitles) Oh, how many brothers you've got, you inbred freaks?! I don't know how I'm gonna do it, but I'll kill the lot of you, and I'll torch your cookhouse!
Trevor starts killing the O'Neil brothers and makes his way to the ranch.
O'Neil Brothers:
  • It's fucking Trevor fucking Philips!
  • Fucking guard this fucking place!
  • Crap! He's heading for the basement!
  • He can't come down here! Stop him!
Trevor gets to the meth lab in the basement.
O'Neil Brother: Aww, shit! He's down here!
Trevor kills the last remaining O'Neil brother in the ranch, and picks up a Jerry Can.
Trevor: (not in subtitles) Gas in a meth lab? Oh, you're gonna burn, you idiots. Here we go.
Trevor starts pouring a trail of gasoline going from the meth lab to the outside entrance. Once he finishes pouring, Trevor ignites the trail.
Trevor: Burn, you disrespectful pricks!
The flames follow the trail until they reach the meth lab and engulf it, causing the entire ranch to explode.
Trevor: Arghhhh!
Trevor gets into a nearby Blazer and leaves the area.


The Senora Beacon Newspaper

"Police in Blaine County are requesting increased resources from the state to deal with the latest outbreak of drug-related violence. The highly lucrative crystal methamphetamine trade seems to be headquartered in the towns around the Alamo Sea, while it is also believed several Mexican cartels also have a presence in the area. Police have attributed several recent massacres to an on-going turf war thought to involve four or five gangs from Los Santos and two or more local operations. Some recent shootouts have been so bloody, some local politicians are calling for increased firepower and have requested either military or paramilitary support to control recent events. Don Percival, CEO of Merryweather has offered his company's services."

  • @calliejj16 - "shit anotha meth lab destroyed at the alamo sea gettin very worried about my supply"
  • @grapeseedcharlie - "Just heard about the massacre up at the O'Neils. Whole farmhouse burned to the ground. Never liked the bastards but that aint right."



  • The name comes from the British game show The Crystal Maze, which was popular in the 1990s, as well as presumably the fact that meth can be referred to as "crystal".
  • In the trailer, Trevor ignites the gas with a Molotov cocktail while in the artwork he uses a Dippo lighter, but in the game, it can only be ignited by shooting the gasoline trail, unless the player has Molotovs, which can be obtained at an old dock at the boathouse in western Sandy Shores. The player can throw it at the trail or through one of the windows to start the fire.
  • As Trevor enters his Bodhi or some other vehicle, the radio will be tuned to Los Santos Rock Radio or Non-Stop-Pop FM. Trevor will comment on this, angrily stating that the music is "...all fucking wrong" before switching to Channel X. If the radio in Trevor's vehicle is already tuned to Channel X or turned off; however, Trevor will not make a comment.
  • The house explosion scene is similar to the house explosion from the I Am Number Four film.
  • If the player returns to the house after Trevor torches it, they will catch fire. However, they will not be able to roll the flames out and Trevor will continue to burn until he dies.
  • If the player shoots the Jerry Can instead of picking it up while inside the meth lab, an unlimited number of explosions will occur, surpassing the duration of Trevor's Special Ability.
    • If the Jerry Can is detonated using a Sticky Bomb (as it is unlocked after Friends Reunited, the mission must be replayed in order to have access to the bombs), the same will happen, although the house will be destroyed as normal.
    • Trevor walking away from the explosion in slow motion is most likely a reference to the popular film cliché where characters are depicted leaving the scene of an explosion unfazed by the destruction behind them.
    • It could also be a reference to "Cool Guys Don't Look at Explosions", which is a soft rock song dedicated to the film cliché said above.
  • If Trevor returns sometime after the mission, the house will revert to normal, as if Trevor never did anything to it. This is presumably an oversight.
  • This is the first time the player is required to use the Jerry Can in the storyline campaign.
