Not to be confused with Holed Up, a beta mission from Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Why can none of my men look after themselves? A chief lieutenant can't even leave his house without being shot to hell by random thugs. I sent some men to try and protect him, but now they're not even answering their cells. Go to the apartment, collect the imbecile, and bring him safely back to my place.
— Description.

Holed Up - Burton is a mission in Grand Theft Auto Online given to the player by Martin Madrazo. It is available for 1 to 4 players.


Madrazo has sent some men to protect Juan, an associate of Madrazo, but the guards failed to protect him and Juan was kidnapped by the Ballas. The team must go to the selected apartments and kill the Ballas. The team then needs to escort Juan to Madrazo's house whilst being followed and attacked by at least four enemy cars. The job is done when Juan safely arrives.

Juan is able to use any other pedestrian's vehicle if his vehicle is severely destroyed, including the vehicle the player is driving, however he is unable to steal any Personal Vehicles.

Mission Objectives

  • Go to the apartments.
  • Take out the rival gang.
  • Escort Juan to Madrazo's house

  • Sometimes, after rescuing Juan, he will be completely still and will not walk or get in any vehicles, making the mission impossible to complete.

  • If the player enters the Cheetah in front of Madrazo's house before the mission ends and quit to freeroam, they can use it for free to drive around. Howewer, they cannot customize or park it in their garage.
