This section of the Grand Theft Auto V game guide describes a detailed description of Franklin - one of the three playable characters in the game. You learn about Franklin's abilities in GTA V and what are the unique gameplay elements reserved for him.
Franklin is a criminal in his twenties, and he is of the Afro-American descent, who performs his daily duties of a repo man, i.e. he recovers cars for Simeon Yetarian, a drug dealer of Armenian descent. Franklin is an ambitious man and his desire is to get promoted in the criminal underground - a dream he hopes to come true thanks to his cooperation with Michael Trevor.
Specialty: Above all, Franklin is an excellent driver, which becomes useful especially when you need to lose your tail, or leave a site of robbery really quickly. Apart from that, he is also a gifted sniper thanks to which, if the need arises, he can provide support for his colleagues.
Special skill: Franklin's special skill is the ability to slow down time while driving. This helps you enter narrow turns or skid around various obstacles in the way.
Game elements reserved for this character: For some missions Franklin can take with him Chop, a Rottweiler that belongs to his friend, Lamar. There also are a number of side missions exclusively for this character, connected with, among other, participating in gang wars or illegal car races.
