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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
After taking out the enemies, talk to Dax, the main character of this DLC, who will join you following the First Dose missions.
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.
Go across the lake and infiltrate the Lost MC biker hideout. Eliminate the enemies and recover Dax's van.
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.
This concludes the first mission in the First Dose series.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
Leave the clubhouse and fight the incoming Lost MC members. Deliver the looted drug to The Freakshop to complete the mission.
These missions do not have any timer, so you can stay in cover and take your time when eliminating these enemies.
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.
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.
Most of the property will have a flammable container by them. Shoot them to cause an explosion and destroy the property.
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.
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.
On the table outside the small blue house right as you enter Millar's Fishery area.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
Once collected, you don't have to return to Millar's Fishery. Instead, you will find a Dodo plane at the Docks.
Get into the plane and fly it to The Freakshop to complete the mission.
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.
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.
