I can not switch characters in GTA 5

15 Replies 57,421 Views Created 17-09-2013

I need some help here please. I do not have the option to switch to a different character in GTA 5. Franklin is the only character I can play with and I am not doing any missions at all and I still can't switch to another character because none of them are showing. Their all blank except from franklin.

Hello all im on the first level robbing the vault i got the money tried to get out bank and a guard grabs my fellow robber and holds a gun to his head, how do i save him ive pressed direction button down, moved the right stick but do i move it to the right side to select the one in the mask or select the bald one.

Assuming i have to select the masked one which i was playinh as before the guard grabbed my mate, ok so hole rigjt stick to the right, how do i shoot the guard do i automaticaly become back as the masked robber, then ain and shoot him with the usual shoulder buttons, i mean before i just saw the guard holding the gun to my mate, im not then really either of them who do i have to select baldy or the masked robber. Helppppp this games driving me daft.......

Actually i think im trying to select baldy should i be selecting the masked one in the right side of the wheel....

I found what you have to do. You have to go to front of Simeon's store. There should be an orange/yellow blip you park to start the mission.

Yeah exactly, it's not so diffecult. Just give the guard a bullet to the head, and then that fart is done.
