"Is there anybody I hate more than Merryweather's CEO Don Percival? OK, quite a few people. But he's enough of a snake to antagonize just for the hell of it. Merryweather are smuggling in some high-tech weapons. They're currently stashed under a bridge in a shipping container so you'll need a heavy-lift helicopter. See if you can borrow one from the army base?"
— Description

Docks to Stock is a mission in Grand Theft Auto Online given to the player by Lester Crest. It is available for up to 4 players.


Merryweather Security has a shipping container full of high-tech weapons in their possession. The container is located under a bridge in Elysian Island. First, the team needs to acquire a Cargobob from inside the Fort Zancudo army base. Once the Cargobob is acquired, the players will need to lose their wanted levels in order to proceed with the job. Arriving at Elysian Island, the team will have to land the Cargobob and eliminate the Merryweather guards protecting the container. Once all of the guards are killed, the team needs extract the container from under the bridge using the nearby Dock Handler, hook the container onto the Cargobob, and deliver it to Lester's warehouse.

Mission objectives

  • Acquire a Cargobob.
  • Lose the Cops.
  • Go to the compound.
  • Collect the container.
  • Deliver the container to Lester's warehouse.


  • The mission can be challenging when the player needs to escape the police while in the Cargobob after leaving the base. A tip on losing the wanted level fast is to not leave the area of the base, but instead gain altitude so the player loses sight of the military. This will make the escape easier since Police Mavericks do not enter the base airspace, and therefore won't be able to pursue the player.
  • A player that owns a hangar at Fort Zancudo will have free and open access to the military base, removing the need to escape the police. The gates are open and a Cargobob can be picked up without gaining any stars.

GTA Online - Mission - Docks to Stock Hard Difficulty


  • Just as the missions Blow Up, Blow Up II, and Blow Up III are identical, this mission is also identical to Docks to Stock II.
    • Docks to Stock II, however, has the 1-4 player availability, as opposed to Docks to Stock's 2-4 player availability.
    • The Docks to Stock and Docks to Stock II missions are identical to the mission American Exports, as all three require stealing a Cargobob from Fort Zancudo in order to steal a container from Merryweather.
  • There is a Dock Handler near the container to carry the crate out from under the bridge.
  • This is one of four missions in Grand Theft Auto Online that requires the player to steal a Cargobob from Fort Zancudo.
  • After a recent patch for the enhanced version, it is now impossible to complete the mission with the Cargobob as its hook will often detach the container on its own without warning.
