Isn't it true that you have to complete the Hotel Assassination (the first assassination given to you by Lester) during the story to be able to continue progressing through the story? I've done all story missions up until The Merryweather Heist and following that mission, Trevor received a text from Franklin saying he has to do something for Lester first before they can do the Blitz Play heist, which I already had unlocked since I got all the items needed for that heist. Since the only mission that was available was from Lester and was the Hotel Assassination, I did that (being sure to invest all of each character's money into Betta beforehand since Betta's stock increases greatly following the assassination [the highest it got for me was 81.5% so I got a great profit from it]) and following the assassination, Franklin received a call from Michael saying that they're ready to do the Blitz Play heist, meaning that the Hotel Assassination was required to complete before being able to continue through the story. However, I see nothing on here nor online that says you can wait until finishing the story before doing ALL of the assassination missions. Can anyone confirm that you have to do the Hotel Assassination at this point in the story to be able to continue through the story? Or can I actually wait until completing the story before doing it and the other assassinations that follow it?
You do have to do the Hotel Assassination along with the two FIB missions, up until the one where you rappel into the building to get the detainee, can't recall his name at the moment. But then Trevor and Franklin officially meet, even if you have already done other missions. This unlocks the "Merryweather Heist" and "Urban Safari." Which I did not know beforehand, so I was in the same boat with you having the third heist available before even completing the second heist. Doing the aforementioned along with a Tonya missionn resolved the issue for me though. Hope this helps.
Thanks, it's good to get some confirmation that you have to do the Hotel Assassination during the story to be able to continue progressing through the story since all I've heard so far is to wait until finishing the story to do ALL of the assassination missions, even though that wouldn't be possible under these circumstances since the Hotel Assassination is required to do during the story. Thanks for the help.
You are more than welcome.
