GTA Online: First Dose 1 – Welcome to the Troupe (Full Guide 2024)

Welcome to the Troupe is one of six First Dose Missions in GTA Online. It is followed by Designated Driver.

Find Ron (R) inside the Ace Liquor store in Sandy Shores to begin.

First Dose 1 – Welcome to the Troupe Mission Brief

Ron Jakowski asks you to take care of an unknown gang that took over Ace Liquor after Trevor Philips’ departure. Upon de-escalating the situation, the Lost MC reignited the hostility, which pushed the rest of the new gang to relocate.


  • For beginners, we suggest using the Heavy Revolver for easy body shots. Otherwise, perform headshots using the Pistol.
  • Don’t panic. Enemies can’t breach the Ace Liquor store.
  • Bring lots of Snack and Armor.
  • Take cover.

Take Out the Lost MC

The Lost Motorcycle Club will surround the Ace Liquor. Despite all key gang members being introduced, they won’t take damage.

Check all sides and eliminate enemies.

Some Lost MC members may enter the shop, but you can take them out easily.

Go to Dax

Assuming you’re outside the shop, head to the topmost floor to find Dax.

He’ll tell you about his relocation plans, but recovering the Journey II is a priority.

Recover Dax’s Stolen Journey

First, go to this side of the map to find a boat.

Otherwise, enter the boat and drive to the Alamo Sea. You’ll end up in an abandoned marina, where the Lost MC members will spawn.

Before retrieving Journey II, we highly suggest eliminating all enemies first.

Once the site is cleared, enter the vehicle. You may ignore some gang members respawning from the dirt road riding a motorbike and the warehouse nearby.
