— Challenge instructions.
Salvage consists of associates competing to collect fifty (50) underwater checkpoints with the help of a rebreather in a random location in Los Santos. The CEO/VIP can start the mission and participate, or "Start as Specator" and watch their associates complete instead, however the latter requires at least 2 associates/bodyguards. Once started, a random area of the map is designated as the salvage area and all players participating must enter the area. Once in the area, 50 checkpoints will be marked within the area, underwater. The player list becomes a leaderboard, listing whomever has collected the most checkpoints closer to the top of the table, and the first, second and third place competitors are listed as gold, silver and bronze entries at the bottom right of the HUD. Each checkpoint is worth $50 dollars more than the last, starting at $50.
Rebreather refills are located around the area, marked on the radar as green blips . Players will receive a bonus reward for collecting all checkpoints. The mission will finish when the timer runs out, or when the last checkpoint is collected; whichever happens first. Once the mission is over, the winner is given a winning cash reward. The rebreathers are removed once the challenge is over.
