*Before the [[Heists Update]], destroying the coke in the hangar would lead to the mission failing. This was changed to no longer be a fail condition, but the payout may be reduced slightly if done so.
*The Los Santos Connection is considered one of the longest and most challenging multiplayer missions in the game as it has several stages involving heavy enemy resistance, multiple enemy spawns (including an infinite spawn at the airport), several long driving sections and even a computer hacking element. Furthermore, if the supplier escapes in his jet at the end, the mission will be automatically failed.

*The abundance of drugs in crates throughout the mission makes the theft of the single box of coke upstairs in the airport hanger — one of the mission's objectives — seem a little redundant.
*The long, green crates found at the first two locations contain packets of drugs. Each crate contains two packets and collecting them gives $500 per packet. The vans in the hanger also contain multiple drug packets, which can be picked up when the vans are destroyed. Collecting the drugs will substantially increase the profit from completing the mission. Any money gained from collecting the packets will also be retained even if the mission is subsequently failed.
 
 
*The mission's name is likely a reference to the film ''[[wp:The French Connection (film)|The French Connection]]'', which concerns the international drug trade. It is also similar to the mission [[The Puerto Rican Connection]] from [[Grand Theft Auto IV]], which was likewise an homage to the film.

I like to know what's happening in the city. Some call it micro-management. I call it staying ahead of trouble. Now, there are some new guys selling too-pure coke all over. I wanna know who they are, and I want them gone. Busting a deal in Rancho would be a good place to start.
— Description


The Los Santos Connection is a mission in Grand Theft Auto Online given to the player by Martin Madrazo. It is available for 1 to 6 players.

Overview

The team has to clear out several enemies and access the vehicle's GPS marked on the map. Once all guards are dead, two enemy Grangers arrive in an effort to stop the players.

The GPS will take the team to a depot in El Burro Heights, attracting chasers on the way. Upon arrival they must hack a laptop in order to find the supplier of their drugs, but the site is protected by many enemies. More enemies will arrive over time in Grangers.

After the laptop is hacked, the team must head to a hangar at Los Santos Airport. The team will be chased by a few more Grangers on the way to the airport. After arriving at the hangar, the team will discover many more enemies inside. The drugs will be in a loft in the west corner of the hangar. Two more enemies can be found there. Either before or after obtaining the drugs, the team has to destroy the crew's vehicles inside the hangar, which include several vans and two airplanes. After destroying the vehicles and getting the drugs, more enemies will come in to kill the team, including a Buzzard.

The team then needs to kill the supplier who flees in a jet provided that all targeted vehicles are destroyed. An enemy Buzzard will also come to attack the team. Multiple Buzzards can be found just outside the hangar to take out the enemy Buzzard and the supplier. Once the supplier is dead, only one member of the team needs to go to Madrazo's house to complete the job.

As of the Lowrider Update, the Enemy Buzzard has been removed, and one of the Buzzards outside of the hanger is gone as well. Infinitely re-spawning enemies are also removed, making the mission substantially easier.
