Los Santos Drug Wars DLC / Acid Lab Guide


The first part of the new GTA Online expansion, Los Santos Drug Wars DLC, is live and introduces a variety of new content, including new vehicles, missions, and even a brand-new business that can help you earn millions in no time. However, unlike the previous businesses, where you would just buy them and start working, the new business requires a bit of work.

Drug Wars Featured Article

The new business is called Acid Lab, and like the previous businesses, it requires players to source the supply materials to manufacture products over time. They can then sell this product for profit. But, you must complete a series of missions to be able to start the Acid Lab business.

In this guide, we show you how you can complete the six missions, set up your Acid Lab business, and how much you can expect to earn through this new lucrative business.

First Dose

First Dose is the name of the series which you must complete in order to start the business. There are six missions in the First Dose series that you can start right after getting a call from Ron upon your first login after the update.

Acid Lab Guide

Once you've received Ron's call, you can go to the 'R' marker (representing Ron Jakowski) on your map. You can find it at Paleto Bay in Blaine County.

This is where you will start your first mission of the First Dose series called Welcome to the Troupe.

Welcome to the Troupe

Once started, you will get an intro cutscene. After the cutscene, you will immediately be put into combat.

Acid Lab Guide

You must take out the incoming waves of Lost MC biker gang members. Keep taking them out while in cover from all sides of the roof.

Acid Lab Guide

Use the explosives to your advantage to take out hordes of them. The mission isn't difficult, and you should be able to complete it in no time.

Acid Lab Guide

After taking out the enemies, talk to Dax, the main character of this DLC, who will join you following the First Dose missions.

Acid Lab Guide

Dax will ask you to recover his van, Journey, from the Lost MC biker gang. Leave the bar roof, and get into the boat at the dock nearby. You can see the icon of the boat on the map.

Drive it back to the bar, and pick Dax up.

After that, go to the abandoned warehouse in Los Santos. This abandoned warehouse will become the headquarters for all your Acid Lab business activities. It will now be known as The Freaskhop.

Acid Lab Guide

This concludes the first mission in the First Dose series.

Designated Driver

Now, the missions following the First Dose 1 mission will be at the 'D' on your map. 'D' represents Dax. And it will always be at The Freakshop.

In the second mission, you must first make your way to the Jetsam Terminal and steal a truck cab. There are plenty of truck cabs around the terminal. Approach any one of them, and they will be highlighted on your mini-map.

Acid Lab Guide

Acid Lab Guide

Enter the truck cab and go to the front of the Jetsam Terminal to collect the party supplies. Reverse into the trailer and attach it to the cab.

Acid Lab Guide

Now you're supposed to deliver these supplies to The Freakshop. However, as you exit the Jetsam Terminal, you will be ambushed by a number of Lost MC biker gang members.

Acid Lab Guide

The supplies will catch on fire, and you must detach the truck cab from the trailer with the party supplies before it explodes. You can see how much health you have at the bottom-right corner of the screen. You must detach before the bar drops all the way down to zero.

Acid Lab Guide

You can detach the trailer by holding the 'H' key if you're on PC or the right d-pad on your controllers if you're on a console (PlayStation or Xbox).

Acid Lab Guide

Once detached, you'll be instructed to get revenge on the Lost MC members by infiltrating their clubhouse, which is surprisingly close to The Freakshop.

Acid Lab Guide

Make your way to the Lost MC clubhouse, and eliminate all the enemies before you can enter the house.

When you're inside, eliminate the remaining members, and look for their plans.

Acid Lab Guide

They are documents attached on a pinboard on one of the walls. We found ours inside one of the rooms by the bar.

After taking the picture, look for a duffle bag in the house. Ours was on the bar counter.

Pick it up and go to the drugs that are on the table inside the house. Pick them all up.

Acid Lab Guide

Leave the clubhouse and fight the incoming Lost MC members. Deliver the looted drug to The Freakshop to complete the mission.

Acid Lab Guide

Acid Lab Guide

These missions do not have any timer, so you can stay in cover and take your time when eliminating these enemies.

Fatal Incursion

The third mission is all about destroying the Lost MC property. First, make your way to the Stab City and destroy their property, including bikes, vans, drugs & chemicals, and oil tanks.

Acid Lab Guide

There is a property destruction meter at the bottom-right corner of your screen. The more property you destroy, the more it fills up. Your objective is to completely fill this bar by destroying the Lost MC property.

Acid Lab Guide

Most of the property will have a flammable container by them. Shoot them to cause an explosion and destroy the property.

Acid Lab Guide

You can also use your personal explosive equipment such as the RPG, sticky bomb, grenade, etc.

After destroying the property, you must go to Millar's Fishery to loot the drugs. Once you get to the location, eliminate the enemies, and collect the drugs.

Acid Lab Guide

The drugs are not hidden, and they will flash right in front of you. There are ten total drug items you must collect. Also, when you're near the drugs, they will be highlighted as green dots on your mini-map. Here are the locations of all the drugs we found at Millar's Fishery.

Drug 1

On the table outside the small blue house right as you enter Millar's Fishery area.

Acid Lab Guide

Drug 2 & 3

Both drugs are on the shelf inside a large warehouse directly in front of the small blue house. As you enter Millar's Fishery, it is a large building to your right.

Acid Lab Guide

Acid Lab Guide

Drug 4 & 5

These two are inside a small lab that is directly ahead of you as you enter Millar's Fishery. Walk past the large warehouse and small blue house, and you will see another huge building in front of you. It says "Millars Boat Shop" on the building.

Acid Lab Guide

This building is a secret lab. However, you cannot enter it head-on. You must go around the back to enter via a backdoor. You will see a blue marker allowing you to enter the building.

Acid Lab Guide

Once inside, go downstairs but be careful as there are some Lost MC members inside. One of them wields a shotgun so prepare to shoot.

Acid Lab Guide

There are not a lot of enemies inside. You will face only one or two of them downstairs. Eliminate them and collect the flashing-wrapped bags. After that, you can exit the same way you entered the building.

Acid Lab Guide

Drug 6 & 7

When you exit via the backdoor, go left, and you will see two more drug items directly ahead of you by a parked van.

Acid Lab Guide

Before approaching the drugs, be wary of your left side, as more Lost MC members might be coming from that side.

One of them will be on a rolling table, and the other will be on a shelf. Collect them both and continue moving forward (not towards the Docks).

Acid Lab Guide

Acid Lab Guide

Drug 8

Keep moving forward until you reach a small turn that takes you out of Millar's Fishery.

However, instead of continuing the path, turn right, and you will find a red lifeboat. The drug is inside this boat.

Acid Lab Guide

Drug 9 & 10

Now backtrack all the way to where you came from up until the point where you collected drugs 6 & 7. From here, make your way towards the Docks.

Acid Lab Guide

Go down a descending platform, and you will find two more drug items on a wooden crate to your right. Collect them, and you're done.

Acid Lab Guide

Once collected, you don't have to return to Millar's Fishery. Instead, you will find a Dodo plane at the Docks.

Acid Lab Guide

Get into the plane and fly it to The Freakshop to complete the mission.

Acid Lab Guide

Uncontrolled Substance

This one is more of an experience than an actual mission. All you have to do is sit through a casual trip that your character will go through.

Acid Lab Guide

You still need to control your character, but it is a linear path, and you must follow whatever Dax asks of you during the mission.
