Payphone Hit: The Tech Entrepreneur is a mission featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as one of the Payphone Hits in The Contract update. It is a Free Mode job that can be conducted in any session type by answering a ringing payphone either randomly encountered or requested by calling Franklin Clinton.

Description

'Ey, this target is one of the most successful tech entrepreneurs in the world, but you ain't never even heard of his damn name. Now this motherfucker? He keeps a low profile, even though he designed half the fuckin' apps on your damn phone: you know, social media, video-sharing, photo-sharing, messaging... you name it, this dude wrote it. And get this: as of tomorrow, he's goin' push what looks like a routine security update, but really it's a backdoor so he can sell all your data to the highest bidder. Fuckin' son of a bitch. He don't care how many people he bankrupt, as long as his fuckin' ass is sitting at the beach in the Caymans next to ten figures in his fuckin' bank account. He got every crooked investor with an internet connection lookin' to buy his stocks once the update hits.
But check this out: one of those investors had an even better idea, and he came to me with it. He's goin' bet against the stock, then we take this bitch down, our client cashes out, and we make bank.
We just got intel that the target is fucked up right now at some charity event, and fired his driver for the fuckin' tenth time. And he just ordered a cab, but I got Imani to cancel that motherfucker. Dude should be right outside.
— Franklin's payphone description

The target is at a hotel and the player can simply head directly there to take him out. This is virtually the same as The Hotel Assassination scenario.

Locations

Taxi Assassination Bonuses

Bonus Conditions

After receiving the target location, Franklin sends a text message spelling out the Bonus criteria. All scenarios involve use of a Taxi.

The client's gonna pay extra if it looks like our guy got picked up in a taxi and ended up taking a trip into the ocean.
— Franklin's TXT for the "Drowning" bonus.
Client says they'll pay extra if we pick this dude up in a taxi and leave it in the scrapyard. Let the car crusher do the rest.
— Franklin's TXT for the "Crushing" bonus.
The client's got a bonus for us if we take our guy out with a bang. I'm thinking we pick him up in a cab then take him to a nice flammable gas station. You seen a gas explosion? Now that shit's fire, yo.
— Franklin's TXT for the "Crushing" bonus.

Franklin will then text again and say that Imani has located the vehicle and a search location is shown at Downtown Cab Co. in East Vinewood to obtain a Taxi.

Imani sourced a location with the vehicle you need for the bonus. Updated your GPS.
— Franklin's TXT.

The player simply needs to steal one of several Taxis parked in the Downtown Cab Co. lot.

Players are free to use their own Taxi (e.g. the Pegasus Lifestyle Management special vehicle from Arena War) or any other stolen Taxi.

Search the area for a vehicle that can be used to help complete the Assassination Bonus.

Drowning

Pick up the target in a taxi and drown them by submerging the vehicle in water.

Once the Taxi is collected, the player can collect the target from the hotel and drive him to any substantial body of water to complete the hit and receive the bonus. The Del Perro Pier is in close proximity to one of the Hotel locations to allow the player to pay homage to the Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas mission Management Issues by driving the target off the end of the pier.

Crushing

Pick up the target in a taxi and drive them into the car crusher at the scrapyard.

Once the Taxi is collected, the player can collect the target from the hotel and drive him to the car crusher located within the Rogers Salvage & Scrap scrapyard to complete the hit and receive the bonus. No actual crusing is shown. A Corona is in front of the HVY crusher, and when driven into, the player hears the sound of the crusher operating as they spawn at the gate with the mission success message.

Exploding

Pick up the target in a taxi and take them out with a gas station explosion.

Once the Taxi is collected, the player can collect the target from the hotel and drive him to any gas station. The player then simply has to explode the Taxi with a gas station pump. This can either be by driving straight into one (causing themselves to be Wasted) or parking next to one and safely shooting the pump from a distance to complete the hit and receive the bonus.

Bonus Failure Consequences

A 3 star wanted level will need to be evaded.
