At long last, GTA V is here! Rockstar has done it again, and created another great masterpiece in the Grand Theft Auto franchise. This time however, you will be able to play as three characters; Michael, Franklin, and Trevor. You will be in the Los Santos area and take on great tasks, such as heists, in this action packed masterpiece.

In terms of trophies you're looking at a very grindy platinum, like Grand Theft Auto IV. The trophy list is almost identical. You're looking at attaining 100% in game by completing story missions, strangers & freaks, collectibles and misc in the single player portion.

While playing the story, you are going to want to keep a few things in mind as there are 6 missable trophies. In the final mission, you will get 3 options, you MUST pick option C, if you don't choose C you will be locked out of TP Industries Arms Race, Red Mist, Kifflom!, Three Man Army, Altruist Acolyte, & Wanted: Alive or Alive. With this in mind, you're also going to want to deliver any hitchhiker as Trevor to the Altruist Acolyte as this can be easily missed. For spoiler reasons, we are not going to get too into this. You'll know when the time comes in the story so don't worry about accidentally messing up.

At the minute, there are also a few glitched trophies. All the collectible ones can be a little glitchy as sometimes the collectible won't be in the place it is supposed to be. See the following trophies in the guide for more info; Show Off, Close Shave, A Mystery, Solved, From Beyond the Stars and Waste Management. Also, if you don't buy a house on the internet for the "American Dream" trophy, that house won't count towards the trophy for some reason. You have to buy it on the internet on your phone.



Step 1: Complete the main story mode while choosing option C as Franklin

In this step you will want to be focusing on completing the main story while keeping a few things in mind;

Near the very end of the game you will have to one choose three options as Franklin. Choose C. If you do not choose option C than you will be locked out of a few trophies. If you happen to pick up a random encounter as Trevor, such as people asking for a ride home, then drop them off at the Altruist Acolyte instead of their marked destination.

While keeping those things in mind, just complete the main story. There are a total of 69 main story missions. You can check your progress by pressing on the pause menu, followed by “Stats” followed by “100% checklist”. This step can take you up to 25-30 hours depending on how you play it. So just focus on completing the main missions. During this step you will earn the following trophies:

Welcome to Los Santos
A Friendship Resurrected
A Fair Day's Play
The Moment of Truth
Diamond Hard
Subversive
Blitzed
Small Town, Big Job
The Government Gimps
The Big One!
To Live or Die in Los Santos


Step 2: Attain 100% in-game completion (Career Criminal)

In this step you will want to attain 100% in game. To attain 100% in game you will need to complete:
  • All 69 story missions.
  • 42 hobbies & pastimes
  • 20 Strangers & Freaks (All of Franklin's)
  • 14 Random Events
  • 16 Miscellaneous
You should have already finished the main story by the time you reach this step, so focus on completing all of the above. Unlike previous Rockstar titles, this checklist is far easier because you only need to complete any 42 out of the 59 hobbies & pastimes. All 20 Strangers & Freaks missions played as Franklin, as well as any 14 out of the 57 random events and 16 misc tasks.

The Misc section will probably be the most time consuming portion of the game as you will have to find all the "collectibles" by collecting all spaceship parts and scrap letters.Other tasks only require you to complete half of the available amount, such as completing 25 out of 50 stunt jumps and flying under 25 out of 50 bridges. However, you will eventually be required to complete all 50 of each these tasks to earn both the Show Off and Close Shave trophies. While you do not need to earn a gold medal in some of the activities in the hobbies & pastimes area, it is recommended to earn a gold medal in six of the events to earn the Multi-Disciplined trophy.

For a more detailed checklist, you can also visit the Rockstar Social Club to view your progress. To check your progress, click on “Games” from the Rockstar Social Site, followed by the link to Grant Theft Auto Five and lastly followed by “Checklist”.You will need to register and link your PSN ID to keep track of your progress. Whenever your game saves, your progress will update on the social club. During this step you will earn the following trophies:

All's Fare in Love and War
TP Industries Arms Race
From Beyond the Stars
A Mystery, Solved
Waste Management
Red Mist
Show Off
Close Shave
Multi-Disciplined
Career Criminal


Step 3: Earn any 70 Gold Medals on Story Missions, Strangers and Freaks.

In this step you will replay any of the 69 story missions attaining a gold medal in most of the missions. You do not need to attain a gold medal in all 69 missions, as you need 70 gold medals in total for Solid Gold, Baby!. Strangers and Freaks missions also count towards getting 70 gold medals so I recommend obtaining gold medals in the missions or activities that best suit your playstyle. For a complete guide for all the medals in the game, see this thread made by dcollins22:

http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/gra...checklist.html

To check your current status on how many gold medals you've earned, go to the pause menu and select the "Replay" option. From there you can check your current medals status from the "Replay Mission" or "Replay Strangers and Freaks" option. During this step you will earn the following trophy:

Solid Gold, Baby!

Platinum Trophy

Step 4: Clean up

You should have most of the single player trophies by now. In this step you will earn the remaining miscellaneous trophies that you need in the single player, such as Three Man Army, Out of Your Depth and A Lot of Cheddar. Most take no effort in getting but some require a bit of time and patience, such as San Andreas Sightseer and Kifflom!. Finish this step to finally move on to the online portion. During this step you will earn the following trophies:

Three Man Army
Out of Your Depth
A Lot of Cheddar
Altruist Acolyte
Trading Pure Alpha
Wanted: Alive or Alive
Los Santos Customs
Pimp My Sidearm
San Andreas Sightseer
Kifflom!


Step 5: Online

The final step is to complete the online portion of the game. Most of the trophies can be easily obtained on your own, while some trophies, such as Crew Cut and Numero Uno, are more efficient to boost. The trophies that will take the most effort are reaching rank 100 and earning 30 of the 85 possible platinum awards, but this is more of a grind than the trophies actually being difficult. This step is likely to take at least 100 hours to complete. During this step you will earn the following trophies:

Off the Plane
Three-Bit Gangster
Numero Uno
The Midnight Club
Unnatural Selection
Backseat Driver
Run Like The Wind
Clean Sweep
Stick Up Kid
Enjoy Your Stay
Crew Cut
Full Refund
Dialling Digits
American Dream
Making Moves
Decorated
Above the Law

Los Santos Legend
Congratulations! You're Vinewood's biggest star!

Just like any other platinum, earn all other 49 trophies for this. Congrats!

Solid Gold, Baby!
Earn any 70 Gold Medals on Missions, Strangers and Freaks.

As the description says, you must earn a total of 70 medals in both Story Missions, and Strangers and Freaks Missions. There are a total of 76 story missions, while Strangers and Freaks has 58. The easiest missions are definitely Strangers and Freaks. While some are harder than others, It's best to gold some of the story missions as well. I would recommend completing the missions that don't require accuracy or have minimal health, as these are among the more challenging requirements in the game.

Requirements stack, meaning once you've completed a requirement you won't have to complete it again. This will make it easier for you to focus on specific requirements if you're having trouble.

To check your gold medal progress in game, push start to bring up the pause menu. While in the pause menu, go to the "Replay" option, followed by "Replay mission" or "Replay Strangers and Freaks". This will show you a list of all completed missions and the highest medal earned in that mission. Note that accuracy and time requirements will void if you die/fail the mission because it starts from a checkpoint, forcing you to restart the mission from the beginning.

If you are having trouble, you can purchase body armor from any Ammu-Nation in order to increase your own survivability. This will make it so you are less likely to fail or die in timed missions or gun fights. Upgrading all of your weapons across all three characters is also useful. Cutscenes also add to your mission time so when going for those requirements remember to skip every cutscene available by pressing .

The following image contains a list of our recommended missions to achieve your gold medal rewards.


For full walkthroughs on how to obtain the gold medals in each of the story missions, refer to the following link:

GTA 5 Missions 100% Gold Medal Walkthrough - YouTube

Career Criminal
Attain 100% Game Completion.

Note: Even though 100% is technically for doing everything in a game, GTA V makes an exception. You only need to do Franklin's side missions, and complete certain Hobbies and Pastimes. The same goes for Miscellaneous activities.

To attain 100% completion you need to do the following:


Once you have done all of that, you will be at 100%. Here is a small FAQ in case you get stuck on anything:

Q. I swear I have done every Hobby and Pastime but it's showing up as 42/43. The same goes for the the Strangers and Freaks missions, I'm on 19/20.

A. You can check your progress towards anything related to 100% over at GTA V Checklist - Rockstar Social Club. You can also check that checklist for anything else in the game that has a stat too.

Q. Some of the races aren't showing up, how come?

A. Races, such as the Sea and Off-Road races, will appear on the map most of the time, but sometimes when you go to the start position it'll tell you to "come back between x and x to start this race". The street races on the other hand will not appear on the map at all during the day time. The marker will only appear from 20:00 until 5:00. Start races will not be available until you complete the mission for Hao. In order to unlock the last 2 street races on the map you have to wait until Hao texts you.

Q. How do I hold up a store?

A. You cannot hold up store such as clothing shops, tattoo parlors etc. You can only hold up shops that aren't labeled on the mini-map. These are usually tied to petrol stations so just drive around until you see one. Once you find one, go inside and just point a gun at the cashier. He'll start bundling money into a bag then hand it to you. All you need to do now is leave and lose your wanted level.

Q. How do I get a "Booty Call"?

A. To get one of these you need to first head to a strip club and get a lap dance, or you can keep throwing money at the pole dancer. You need to max out the like bar for the dancer. This is done by pressing to touch and to flirt. Be careful not to touch the girl when the bouncer is watching though. If he sees you too many times and you'll get thrown out.

It seems that you can only take certain strippers home with you; Nikki, Infernus, Saphire and Juliet. Credit to Dopper89 and RemingtonInk for this info.


Q. How do I partake in friend activities?

A. All you have to do is call either of the other two playable characters and hope they will accept to hang out with you. If they do, go and pick them up. Friend activity will now be highlight on the mini-map and all you have to do is drive into the objective marker in front of them.

San Andreas Sightseer
Explore all of Los Santos and Blaine County

This trophy is not as hard as it sounds, you will need to "explore" most of the map in the game.

The best way to unlock this is by entering a helicopter and flying all around the map towards the ocean. Once you've made a whole circle around the whole map, start unlocking the map one area at a time. One helpful little tip; if you mark a custom waypoint on your map over an undiscovered location, your waypoint marker will receive a small “aura” of the surrounding map. If you receive this aura on your waypoint icon, it means the area can be unlocked on the map. However, if your icon does not receive this “aura” then flying over the location will not unlock that area on the map. This will help you navigate the boarders of the map, and also keep you from wasting your time trying to discover zones that cannot be unlocked.

Once you've explored 95% of the map, the trophy will unlock.

All's Fare in Love and War
Purchase Downtown Cab Co. and complete a private fare.

Note: Regular taxi jobs don't count for this trophy! You need to complete a private fare.

Downtown Cab co. can only be purchased by Franklin for $200,000. The property is located on the northeast side of Los Santos, just below the race track on the north east side of Los Santos:


Once you have bought the property you will get a call from Raul. He will let you know that he will call you if he ever needs any jobs doing. After this initial call, you have to wait for Raul, to receive a fare call. Eventually, you will get another call and you'll be told to pick somebody up (usually a VIP). A good way to wait for Raul to call you is to sleep at a safehouse for a few days.

Once he calls, accept the job by pressing on tick icon on your phone. You don't need to be in a taxi to receive this call. As soon as you accept it a "P" icon will appear on the map. Simply drive to it and then pick the person up when you get there, and bring them to the destination they want to go to. As soon as you drop them off it'll say "Private Fare Complete". The trophy will unlock shortly afterwards.


TP Industries Arms Race
Purchase McKenzie Field Hangar and win the arms race.

MISSABLE!

The McKenzie Field Hangar will cost $150,000 and can only be purchased as Trevor. You will unlock the ability to purchase properties as soon as you complete "Mr. Philips" and "Nervous Ron.” The hangar can be found near Grapeseed near the Sandy Shores airfield. Purchasing the hangar will unlock air and ground deliveries. Ground pickups are started by entering the dune buggy, whereas airdrops are started by entering the plane.


Both have 5 missions a piece, so to unlock this trophy you will need to complete 10 missions in total. The plane missions are the hardest. You will be dropping crates in the first two missions while in the last three, you will be bombing areas followed by landing the plane back at the hangar. The ground missions are simple. You just to drive to a destination to pick up a package and kill rival arms dealers on the way back to the hangar.

Once you complete a mission you will have to leave the area to make new missions spawn again. Best way to do this is to go back to Trevor's safehouse and save the game once, or you can just kill yourself and time will advance several hours. Once you've completed 5 plane missions and 5 dune buggy missions, the trophy will unlock.

Multi-Disciplined
Attain a gold medal in all applicable hobbies and pastimes.

There is a total of 6 different Hobbies and Pastimes to partake in that have the ability to earn medals in. You will unlock the ability to play each one the further you advance in the story. Here are the Hobbies and Pastimes that apply for this trophy:
  • Flight School (Completed at the airport. Get gold in any of the 12 lessons)
  • Street Race (Street races will open after the Shift Work mission. They appear from 20:00 until 5:00)
  • Sea Race (Win any of the 4 races available)
  • Off Road Race (Win any of the 6 races available)
  • Shooting Range (Get a gold medal in any of the 18 challenges)
  • Triathlon (Win any of the 3 triathlons)
Now, you don't need to win all the events within each one! For example, the flight school has 12 lessons that you can attend. You only need gold in one of these lessons, not all 12. The same goes for all of the other Hobbies and Pastimes listed here. Upon getting a gold medal in one event in each Hobby and Pastime, the trophy will unlock.

From Beyond the Stars
Collect and return all spaceship parts.

Glitch Warning: There have been cases where a collectible doesn't show up when you go to its location. This isn't a common glitch, but if it happens, all you have to do is switch to any character then back to the original character. This causes all the in-game objects to respawn. The collectible should appear after the switch.

As Franklin, head to the question mark icon in Sandy Shores after you have completed the main mission "Fame or Shame". In order to start the mission, approach the marker and meet Omega. He will tell you about aliens and ask you to find UFO parts from their craft that crashed. This mission is called "Far out". There is a total of 50 spaceship parts spread throughout San Andreas and you need to find all 50 for this trophy and return then to Omega. They look like futuristic rectangular blocks and make a humming noise when you are nearby one. They also have a glowing pattern on them when it is dark. Here's the difference between the spaceship parts during day and night:


Once you have found all 50 parts simply return to Omega and the trophy will unlock.


A Mystery, Solved
Solve the mystery of Leonora Johnson.

Glitch Warning: There have been cases where a collectible doesn't show up when you go to its location. This isn't a common glitch, but if it happens, all you have to do is switch to any character then back to the original character. This causes all the in-game objects to respawn. The collectible should appear after the switch.

For this trophy, you need to find all 50 letter scraps hidden throughout Gran Theft Auto V. You don't need to trigger a Strangers and Freaks mission like with the UFO parts, they are available from the get go. The letters are small glowing pieces of paper that make a noise like a piece of paper blowing in the wind when you are nearby:


The letters can be collected by all 3 characters, but only Franklin can turn in the mission. A Strangers and Freaks mission will appear by the golf course labeled “Killer” when you have collected all the letters. Head to the marker and you will find the killer in the back garden. When you approach him, he will run off and you will have to chase him down and kill him. Once you kill him, the trophy will unlock.


Waste Management
Purchase the old dock and collect all nuclear waste.

Glitch Warning: There have been cases where a collectible doesn't show up when you go to its location. This isn't a common glitch, but if it happens, all you have to do is switch to any character then back to the original character. This causes all the in-game objects to respawn. The collectible should appear after the switch.

The old dock is located on the west side of the map and can be purchased for $250,000 while playing as any of the 3 characters. You cannot buy it until you have completed the mission entitled "The Merryweather Heist". Once you buy the Old Dock, a submarine will appear by the dock. This submarine will always respawn here if it happens to be destroyed or lost. You need the submarine in order to pick up the nuclear waste, you cannot do it while in scuba gear. There is a total of 30 nuclear waste barrels for you to collect.


Also, you will receive the Trackify app on your phone which you used during the the Merryweather heist. This works like a sonar radar, it'll have a red blip on the map and you just have to follow that blip until you reach the nuclear waste on the seabed. The Trackify app will lock onto the nearest piece of waste too, although it could be miles away. To collect the nuclear waste you just have to drive the submarine into it and you'll pick it up. The submarine has slightly clunky controls but it's kind of like the helicopter. Use to accelerate and to brake / reverse. You can also use to descend and to ascend in the water. Each time you pick up a collectible you will be rewarded with $23,000 and when you pick up the final one you will be rewarded with $250,000. You will only get money if you collect them with the character that bought the dock however.

Red Mist
Complete all Rampages.

MISSABLE!

There is a total of 5 rampages to complete, the first one can be found here while playing as Trevor:


Once you start the rampage you will put put in "rage" mode that basically gives the screen a reddish tint and you hear noises differently. You don't have your special ability active the whole time though even though it looks like it because of the red tint. You have infinite ammo and all you have to do is kill as many enemies as you can without getting killed. Each rampage is different to the last one in terms of weapons and requirements. After you have completed the first rampage, the other rampage events will be marked with a skull symbol on the map. Here's a list of all five of the rampages and the requirements to pass each one:
  • Rampage 1 - Rednecks
    • Kill 25 Rednecks using grenades and the AK47.
    • Time Limit: 2 Minutes
    • Gold Medal Requirements: 45 kills, 3 headshots, 2 vehicles destroyed.
  • Rampage 2 - Gang Members
    • Kill 30 gang members using grenades and the SMG.
    • Time Limit: 2 minutes
    • Gold Medal Requirements: 45 kills, 6 headshots, 2 vehicles destroyed.
  • Rampage 3 - Gang Members
    • Kill 30 gang members using grenades and the AK47.
    • Time Limit: 2 minutes
    • Gold Medal Requirements: 50 kills, 6 headshots, 2 vehicles destroyed.
  • Rampage 4 - Army Soliders
    • Kill 35 army soldiers using the grenade launcher and AK47.
    • Time Limit: 3 minutes
    • Gold Medal Requirements: 45 kills, 6 headshots, 2 tanks destroyed.
  • Rampage 5 - Hipsters
    • Kill 20 hipsters using grenades and the sawn-off shotgun.
    • Time Limit: 2 minutes
    • Gold Medal Requirements: 30 kills, 10 headshots, 2 vehicles destroyed.
Show Off
Complete all Stunt Jumps.

Top Tip: Use the quicksave option on your phone before attempting every stunt jump. This way if you fail, you can reload before the jump. To load the save you must go into the "Game" section on the pause menu and press "Load Game".

A few people have reported this to be glitched, leaving you at 49/50 even if you have successfully completed each jump. In order to attempt to avoid this issue, do each stunt jump in a single sitting. This problem isn't a widespread issue and currently only effects a small minority of players. Make sure you see the yellow "Stunt Jump Passed" before moving onto another jump.

There is a total of 50 stunt jumps to complete in GTA V and they are similar to the stunt jumps in GTA IV. Unlike GTA IV though, you now need to land in an certain spot and also not hit a single thing while you are in the air. You can, however, hit something when all your wheels are touching the ground. Also, you must land on all of your wheels upon landing. A new feature in GTA V that you couldn't do in past GTA games is the ability to shift the weight in your car. While your car is in the air you can use the to turn the car in mid air. You really need to utilize this feature while doing the jumps to make sure you land up right.

Kifflom!
Complete your path to enlightenment... or not.

MISSABLE!

This trophy is rewarded to you for completing all of the epsilon program missions. These missions can only be played as Michael. At any time in the game go onto the internet on your mobile phone and either search the word "Epsilon" into Eyefind or go to www.epsilonprogram.com. Upon entering this website you will see a few options, you are looking for the "Epsilon Program Identity Evaluation". Click that then complete the short survey, answering whatever you want to. After you have done this you get a map marker:


Go up to the red pick up truck and watch the cutscene. After the cutscene, you'll end up in the desert and a voice will tell you to donate $500 to the epsilon program, which is done by accessing the website on your phone. Once that's done you will need to wait 12 in-game hours. After which, you will have the Epsilon logo on your mini-map instead of the usual question mark. Head to the Epsilon logo and a cutscene will play that will introduce Marnie (If you played GTAIV, you may recall Marnie as a stranger from that installment). After the cutscene has played, donate $5000 and then wait 12 more in-game hours for the next mission to show up. This one is located up near Sandy Shores.

Once you start the mission, head down the road from Marnie and you will get an email letting you know that you need to find 5 cars for "Epsilon's higher beings". These 5 cars are as follows and can be found parked in the following areas:

Benefactor Surano (Can be bought for $99,000)






Declasse Tornado






Pegassi Vacca (Can be bought for $240,000)






Dinka Bouble-T






Enus Super Diamond (Can be bought for $250,000)






Once you have found one of the vehicles a will appear on the map. Simply bring it to that location and park it in the garage. Also, all of the cars, except the Pegassi, will spawn more frequently in traffic, so there's a higher chance of finding them all in the Rockford Hills and Vinewood area of the city. I didn't manage to find the Enus Super Diamond at all, so I had to buy it. Once you deliver all 5 vehicles you will receive another email from Marnie and a will appear on the mini-map just above the Alamo Sea.

For this mission, you just use the device you are given to detect "extraterrestrial activity" in the area. All you have to do is walk around with the device and point it in different directions. If you are pointing the device towards once of the objects you need to find and moving closer to the object, blue bars will fill up on the device. Your controller will also vibrate faster the closer you are to the object. After you have found the TV, car battery, and the shoe you need to donate two sums of $5000 to the Epsilon program and then wait 12 in game hours.

After 12 hours has past you will have a on your mini map in Los Santos. Head to the marker and you will find Marnie by some graffiti. Speak to her and she will tell you that you need to purchase the Epsilon robes and wear them for 10 days straight. To buy the robes, go to the Epsilon website and then click on the robes option, or follow the link in the email that Marnie sent you. You have to purchase the robes for $25,000. The robes will be delivered to your home after 24 in-game hours, and you will receive a confirmation letting you know when you can go get them. Once they have been delivered go to your home in Rockford Hills and head to wardrobe. The robes will be in the "Outfits" section. To do this mission quickly, simply keep sleeping the whole 10 days. You will get a on screen notification after every full day of wearing them so you don't need to track the days manually. After 10 days you will get a text and a new mission.

NOTE: It's very important to not change characters while wearing the robe for 10 days, as changing characters can cause Micheal to change his clothes automatically. Credit to wazzpey for this info.

Alternatively, you can skip the 10 days much faster by entering Lester's hideout to skip a day in game. However, you will need to have one of his heist missions available. For more information on the method refer to the spoiler below.

You now want to head to the on the mini-map with your robes on and complete the mission. All you have to do is fly the plane to the airfield and meet Jimmy when you get there. After you have finished this mission another will appear on your mini-map after 24 hours has passed. You will meet up with the others, and you will be told you need to walk 5 miles in the desert. This is going to take a long time and, if you want, you can tie an elastic band to the so you are always walking forwards. There will be a little tracker on the screen that will update every 0.1 mile you travel. Once you complete the 5 miles the message "Pilgrimage Complete" will appear on the screen, indicating that this mission has been completed.

Now, for the final mission. Head to the on the mini-map and make sure you have at least $50,000 on you. You can complete this mission in a variety of ways, but if I were you I'd kill all of the Epsilon guards and take the money for yourself. Either way, you will unlock the trophy. If you decide to take the money you will be rewarded with $2,000,000 as well.

Default

Three Man Army
Survive 3 minutes on at least a 3 star Wanted Level with all three characters together off mission.

MISSABLE!

Depending on the ending you choose, this trophy can be missed. You must choose option C for your ending to avoid being locked out of this trophy.

This is easily done after the story as it's difficult to get all three of them together during the main missions as one will always not want to come along because they have a mission to complete. All you have to do is call the other two characters up via the mobile phone and to hang out with them. Once they agree to hang out with you a icon will appear on that map. Go to both of those and then honk your horn near to pick them up. Once you have picked up both of them you want to go to the Los Santos International Airport. All you have to do now is drive onto the runway and just keep the 3 stars for a full 3 minutes without losing your wanted level and without any of the characters getting killed. The trophy will pop once the 3 minutes is up.

Note: Make sure that you make your second call as soon as your first friend agrees to hang out with you. If you pick up your friend without making that second phone call the second friend will be automatically be busy, so call both Trevor and Michael before picking any of them up.


Out of Your Depth
You're gonna need a bigger boat...

All you have to do to unlock this is get eaten by a shark. In order to get eaten by a shark, you have to go all the way out to sea until you enter the dark blue part of the sea. Eventually, you will notice a red dot on your mini-map. This red dot symbolizes where the shark is in the water. Swim towards the shark and wait as he circles you until he eventually eats you. The trophy will unlock after you are eaten.


Altruist Acolyte
Deliver an unsuspecting victim to the Altruist Cult.

MISSABLE!

This trophy can only be obtained while playing as Trevor. There is a total of 6 random events that will allow you to complete the requirements of this trophy. For the purpose of the guide, we'll go with the easiest one. Go to the area marked here and you will see a woman walking by the side of the road:


You'll get a yellow blip that will try and lead you to the correct destination, you don't want to follow that. You want to find the symbol which is near Mt. Chilliad and head there instead. Once you reach the symbol the gates of the camp will open and a cutscene will play. As soon as the cutscene ends you'll be rewarded with $1000 and the trophy. If you happen to have already done this one, here's the locations of the other available people that you can bring to the cult:
  • Hitchhiker: located on East Joshua Road.
  • Hitchhiker: located near the Great Chaparral.
  • Drunk people: located near La Puerta.
  • Drunk couple: located near Armadillo Avenue


A Lot of Cheddar
Spend a total of $200 million across all three characters.

As the description says, you must spend a total of $200 million across three characters. You can spend $200 million on a single character, but you will need to make at least one purchase with every character in order to earn the trophy. The final heist gives each character about $20 million so it's best to save this trophy till the end of the game if you haven't earned a sufficient amount of money.

The fastest and most efficient way to earn this is by buying and reselling stocks. Go to the internet browser from your phone by pressing on the dpad and go to the "Money & Services" tab, from there click on the link for www.lcn-exchange.com followed by "Markets". You should see a list of all stocks that you can buy. Look for a stock that's over $300 and click on it. This will bring you to a screen with a "Buy" option. There will be a button. Hold down the button on it to until you cannot buy anymore stocks then confirm the purchase. After it's been confirmed you will be taken to your portfolio and have the option to sell all your stocks. Click on the "Sell all" option to sell all your stocks and repeat this method until you've earned the trophy. This process should take you less than 5 minutes if you have over 30 million.


Trading Pure Alpha
Make a profit over your total investments in the stock market.

Just like A Lot of Cheddar, you will have to buy stock(s). Only this time you have to make a profit out of it. In order to make a profit, you must wait til your porfolio indicates a rise in value after your purchase of the stock. You can recheck your stock in as little as an in-game hour for marginal changes in value. When stocks are up (green) sell that specific stock and the trophy will unlock.

You can get this trophy at any time, but there is a good opportunity for early profit in stocks just after you complete the Merryweather Heist mission. Playing as Franklin, after completing the hotel assassination for Lester, you will get a second mission that activates from a payphone outside a car wash. Before heading towards the pay phone or just afterwards, open your cell phone to the stocks section. Buy as much stock as possible in “Debonaire.” After completing the series of assassinations and completing the mission, wait awhile. Immediately after the mission, stock will already have increased. However, the stock jumps up to 35% to 40% growth and selling at this point will net you a trophy and a small fortune.

You only have to profit from the stock you sell, no matter how little that profit actually is.

Pimp My Sidearm
Fully mod a weapon.

The earliest time that you can unlock this trophy is after you complete the "Complications" mission and have control of Michael.

Go to the nearest Ammu-Nation gun store and purchase a pistol. You will need to purchase 5 attachments for it:
  • Extended Clip - $387
  • Flashlight – $472
  • Suppressor - $1,822
  • Army Tint - $100
After you purchase the final attachment the trophy will unlock. By purchasing all of these attachments as Michael you will have more than enough money so it's best to do this as soon as you can play as Michael. During one of the story missions you will have to upgrade a weapon, so you may get this on accident. Alternatively, if you own a Rockstar social account you'll be given the "Assault SMG" as a rears for having an account. All of the attachments are free for this weapon. Credit to heartagram_62 for finding that out.


Wanted: Alive or Alive
Deliver a bail bond target alive.

MISSABLE!

This trophy can only be unlocked by playing as Trevor.

To activate bounty missions you will need to talk to Maude, who can be found in Grapeseed with the Orange Stranger question mark. Once you talk to her she will e-mail you the location of the first bounty, Ralph Ostrowsk. He is located in Davis Quartz.

Once you reach the Quarry, he can be found in the very bottom of the Quarry. You will see him standing by his car. Once you approach him he will get in his car and flee. Once you're chasing him make sure to NOT shoot him but only the tires of his car until he stops. Once he stops and gets out of the car punch him once with until he surrenders. Once he surrenders, get in your car and wait for him to get in as well. Take him back to Maude to complete the mission and the trophy will unlock.

If you have already done this mission and killed Ralph, there will be 3 more opportunities to capture a bounty alive.
  • Larry Tupper - Located on Grand Senora Desert.
  • Glenn Scoville - Located on top of Mount Chiliad. You will need to take the cable car to reach him.
  • Curtis Weaver - Located just south of Paleto Bay in a trailer park.

Los Santos Customs
Fully mod a vehicle.

Note: This trophy won't unlock if you are using a car that has all the specific upgrades tied to it. Some cars don't have the option for a skirt etc. These cars won't unlock the trophy if you try to upgrade them fully. An example of a car with all the upgrades available is the Bravardo Buffalo and the infernus.

You can start customizing vehicles as soon as you complete the "Father/Son" mission.

Close Shave
Complete all Under the Bridge and Knife Flight challenges.

There is a total of 50 bridges to fly under and 15 knife flights to complete in Grand Theft Auto V. I recommend using the buzzard to fly under bridges because it is easier to control altitude in a helicopter, as well as the ability to reduce speed more easily than you can in a plane without crashing. The buzzard can be found at the government center on the far right hand side of Los Santos. At the very end of a road near the sea.

As for the knife flights, either the Cuba 800 or the fighter jet will do. The jet is very fast and maintains speed better when performing the knife flight. However, as it is fast it can be difficult to line up properly. The fighter jet is located in the military base on the western side of the map, in a hangar. The Cuba 800 is slow but it is easy to control, and it is thin which makes the 6th knife flight a lot easier. This can be found landing at Trevor's airfield on occasion or the McKenzie Field Hangar. Now, you may not think I'm serious, but using a passenger plane is also a good choice. It has a huge wing span and, as you only need to have the wing pass through the two buildings, it makes things easier and less risky. It is really up to you in the end though, use whatever plane you are comfortable with.

Under the Bridge Locations:


Knife Flight Locations:





Off the Plane
GTA Online: Complete the Introduction.

This trophy is quite simple. As soon as you finish customizing your character you will be taken to "Gta Online". Your character will meet up with a familiar face and you'll be introduced to the world of Gta online. As soon as you're able to control your character the trophy be unlock.

Above the Law
GTA Online: Reach Rank 100.

In order to reach rank 100 in GTA online, you will need to earn 1,584,350 RP (Reputation Points, basically XP). This will probably be the last trophy you earn because reaching rank 100 is a huge grind. Even though there are multiple ways of earning quick RP, you're still looking at over 100+ hours to reach rank 100 if you don't boost it. There are many ways in which you can boost RP, this guide will outline the best way to get to level 100 from 0. If you complete missions with more than 1 player, you will be awarded more RP. If you complete missions with people in the same crew as you, you will be given more RP. Difficulty on missions also matters, For example, playing on hard will give you a 33% bonus to the RP rewarded at the end. Listed below is a list of all the known grinding and boosting methods. This will be updated as some methods become patched or new methods are discovered.

Method #1 - Criminal Records / Downtown Underground race (solo)
  • Land Race - Criminal Records (unlocked at rank 1)
  • Race Type - GTA
  • Laps - 1
  • Vehicle Type- Motorcycle
    Matchmaking - Off
  • Land Race - Downtown Undergound (unlocked at rank 8)
  • Race Type - GTA
  • Laps - 1
  • Vehicle Type- Motorcycle / Super Car
  • Matchmaking - Off
All you have to do is run a lap around the prison. You can easily start this mission by going to > online > jobs > host job > race. Then you just need to find either of those two races. Criminal Records takes 30 seconds on average and Downtown underground takes about 1 minute 15 seconds. You will earn about 750 RP on Criminal Records and 1000 RP on Downtown Underground. This isn't the best way and it can get boring pretty quickly, it's solid RP though.

Method #2 - Criminal Records (Two Players)
  • Land Race - Criminal Records (unlocked at rank 1)
  • Race Type - Standard
  • Laps - 2
  • Vehicle Type- Motorcycle
  • Matchmaking - Off
All you have to do here is pretty much the same as the first method. Just keep racing each other but take it in turns of winning. The winner will get about 4000 RP and the loser will get about 3000 - 3500 RP. This takes about 1 minute and that isn't including loading screens. This will also count towards the race platinum medal, so even more of a reason to use this method. Credit goes to JazzHandsRaptor. You can find partners here.

Method #3 - The Parking Garage Mission (unlocked at rank 55)

Even though you need to be rank 55 for this mission, if a friend has this mission they can invite you into it. The 1.03 patch ruined this method a bit, but it still works well if you don't do ANY jobs for Lester prior to getting to rank 55. If you make sure you don't do a single one for him, this method will work perfectly. If you do, it might be a little tricky. The reason for this is because calling Lester for a job will make the game randomly assign a mission you have already completed for him. If you don't complete any missions for him, then complete the Parking Garage mission when he gives it to you at 55, you will always receive this mission from Lester when requesting a job. What you want to do on the mission is drive to the top of the parking lot until you get to the very top floor. Once here, just throw grenades and such over the wall towards where the documents are located. A well placed shot will destroy the documents and complete the mission. Including loading screens, this method takes about 3-4 minutes and gives you 4500-5000 RP on hard difficulty and $5000. You need a minimum of 2 players to start this job though. If you are having trouble with Lester giving you the mission, find somebody who can get it every time and complete the mission with them once. This will add the mission to completed missions and calling Lester will make him give you it. You can find partners here.

Method #4 - Rooftop Rumble Mission (unlocked at rank 75)

Even though you need to be rank 55 for this mission, if a friend has this mission they can invite you into it. The 1.03 patch ruined this method a bit, but it still works well if you don't do ANY jobs for Martin prior to getting to rank 75. If you make sure you don't do a single one for him, this method will work perfectly. If you do, it might be a little tricky. The reason for this is because calling Martin for a job will make the game randomly assign a mission you have already completed for him. If you don't complete any missions for him, then complete the Rooftop Rumble mission when he gives it to you at 75, you will always receive this mission from Martin when requesting a job. This is kind of the same principle as the last method. You will spawn outside a parking lot and you want to climb up the hedges on the right hand side so you can see in on the first floor. From here, just shoot the closest car to you will a grenade launcher. This will cause the man standing near the car to get blown up and therefore destroying the documents he is holding. Including loading screens, this method takes about 2-3 minutes and gives you 4000 - 4500 RP on hard difficulty and $25,000. This job can be completed solo, which will speed up the loading screens. If you are having trouble with Martin giving you the mission, find somebody who can get it every time and complete the mission with them once. This will add the mission to completed missions and calling Martin will make him give you it. You can find partners here.


Numero Uno
GTA Online: Obtain first place in all competitive game types.

Unlike AWP in GTA IV, this trophy only requires you to win one of each game type. Fortunately, the wins can be earned in a closed friend session rather than in public matchmaking. You will have to level up to rank 18 in order to unlock every mode required for the trophy. Here is a complete list of all the game types you need to win:
  • Win Land Race
  • Win Air Race
  • Win Sea Race
  • Win GTA Race
  • Win Rally Race as either Driver and Co Driver

  • Win Golf (Can be one hole)
  • Win any Shooting Range challenge
The Midnight Club
GTA Online: Use custom vehicles to win 5 races.

In order to use a custom vehicle in a race, you must own a vehicle with a tracker on it. The tracker will allow you to use that vehicle in a race. The host chooses what type of car will be used in the race during set up. You can check what class a vehicle is by pressing while in the car and looking at the writing in the bottom left corner. For example, the buffalo says "Bravado Buffalo, Coupe". You will only be able to use your tracked custom car in races that are set up for that specific car type.

Once you have identified your vehicle’s class, you need to select that class when setting up a race and make sure the "Custom Vehicles" setting is set to the "Yes" option. The next available screen will allow you to choose your vehicle and your custom car should be the first available choice, for example “Custom Gauntlet.” As for a good track, we recommend "Criminal Records". This race is located by the prison in Blaine county, or you can access the race by pressing , Online > Jobs > Host Job > Race > Criminal Records. This track is a very easy circle around the prison and takes about 30 seconds to finish depending on the car you choose. The trophy will unlock as soon as you have won 5 races with your custom vehicle. In order to find boosting partners for this trophy, please refer to the thread below:

Unnatural Selection
GTA Online: Complete all 10 waves of a Survival.

Note: Although you can only play this mode at level 15, you can invite players under than level into lobbies and they can still play.

Note: You can only host this mode after unlocking it at level 15, but other lower level players may still participate if they are invited to join.

Your first opportunity to play survival will occur at level 15. Ron will call your phone and ask you to defend the power plant. Go to the marker and you will be able to participate in survival with up to 4 players or solo if you prefer. The aim is to stay alive for as many waves as you can, with 10 being the last wave. Each wave will be progressively harder and harder to complete. I suggest doing it on the "Boneyard" map. You can camp out near the jumbo jet (behind the overturned car) and also have somebody by the buses. This prevents enemies spawning to the right of you. It is easier with 4 players to do this, but it can be done solo if you camp in the shack near the tail wing of the jumbo jet. Here's a detailed list of what will happen on each wave:
  • Wave 1 - Enemies have pistols.
  • Wave 2 - Enemies have SMGs.
  • Wave 3 - Enemies have Pistols and SMGs, cars will show up.
  • Wave 4 - Enemies will have pistols and SMGs. A Buzzard helicopter will show up too.
  • Wave 5 - Enemies will have pistols, SMGs and body armor.
  • Wave 6 - Enemies will have pistols, SMGs and body armor, cars will show up.
  • Wave 7 - Enemies will have SMGs and body armor, cars will show up, 2 buzzard helicopters.
  • Wave 8 - Enemies will have SMGs, LMGs, Body armor and miniguns. Cars will also show up.
  • Wave 9 - Enemies will have LMGs, Body armor and miniguns. Cars will also show up.
  • Wave 10 - Enemies will have LMGs, Body armor and miniguns. There will be cars and 2 buzzards.
General tips
  • Body Armor – It is highly recommended that you pick up body armor between rounds. Body armor essentially doubles your health and is indicated by the blue bar immediately next to your health bar.
  • Picking up weapons, health, etc. – The safest time to pick up weapons is at the beginning of a round or near the end with very few enemies remaining. The last thing you want to do is leave cover mid-round and waste health and armor. Because your health naturally regenerates up to 50% if you stay in cover, it is not worth it to risk picking up health unless it is very close by. If you find yourself nearing death, keep low and behind cover while your health regenerates.
    Buzzard Helicopters – Organize your group so that it is the job of one person to worry about the helicopters while the rest of the team keeps ground-based enemies from surrounding the group. If everyone worries about the helicopter, you run the risk of being swarmed.
  • Cars – Cars will periodically show up with enemy reinforcements. These are best dealt with quickly by using grenades or sticky bombs before enemies have a chance to attack you. The 4x4 trucks have 2 enemies whereas the vans have 4 people in them.
  • Merryweather Support - At rank 20 you unlock the ability to call Merryweather support in the form of a buzzard attack helicopter. In order to call the helicopter, find Merryweather in your contacts then select the helicopter back up option. You can use this once per player in survival, and I advise you save at least one for wave 10 as this is the hardest wave to complete.

If you want to find other player to join you for this trophy, please use the following thread to find people:

Backseat Driver
GTA Online: Direct a driver to 1st place as co-driver in Rally Mode.

This trophy could be difficult for most players to earn in public rally mode. You should be aware that only the co-driver can see the checkpoints while the driver cannot. It is the co-driver’s job to either use a headset to direct the driver or to use or to show the driver which way to turn. By running this in public matches, you run the risk of playing with people that don’t know how to play this mode effectively or communicate clearly. However, you can boost this trophy very easily.

Set up a race on the track "Criminal Records" and make sure you have 4 players willing to boost the trophy. This race is located by the prison in Blaine county, or you can access the race by pressing , Online > Jobs > Host Job > Race > Criminal Records. This track is a very easy circle around the prison, no help from the co-driver is needed at all.

Set up your game to a "Rally" mode with 1 lap instead of the default 5 laps. As for car type, choose a motorcycle. Now you want to invite the other 3 people you are boosting this trophy with and make sure the matchmaking option is set to "Closed" so no random players can join. You have to choose your preferred partner and preferred role now. The player who is earning the trophy needs to have the "Co-Driver" option as preferred role and your preferred partner needs to have "Driver" set as their role. Once you start the race, the driver just needs to do a complete lap of the prison perimeter which is just a big circle and takes about 32 seconds to finish. The trophy will pop when the lap is done and each player can switch roles so that everyone earns the trophy.

Run Like The Wind
GTA Online: Survive with a Bounty on your head.

When you reach level 10 you will get a call from Lester about the ability to add bounties to players. To place a bounty on somebody, call Lester and then select the bounty option. You'll then get a list off players who are in the free roam session and you must select one of them to add bounty too. The minimum amount you can put on somebody is $1000. Once a player has bounty on them, they will be highlighted on the mini-map so other players can kill them and claim the bounty.

For this trophy, you need to survive for 24 in game hours with bounty on you. This is a total of 48 minutes real time. While that may seem like long time, you can rob stores etc in the process while you are waiting. Be aware though, if you leave your character idle for more than 13 minutes you will be kicked for inactivity. You will know when the 48 minutes is up as you will gt a notification above your mini-map saying "You have survived the bounty". This can be easily boosted though with a friend, but you can also get it from civilians. If you rob a car from somebody you will sometimes get a text form an unknown number saying that you are a dead man, or something along those lines. You will then get $1000 bounty placed on you. If you need a partner for this, please use the following thread to find somebody to boost this trophy with:

Clean Sweep
GTA Online: Finish a Gang Attack without dying and kill at least 10 enemies.

Gang attacks are unlocked once you reach rank 18. You can locate Gang Attacks by a going near one of the gang locations on the map (they are not marked at all). When you are nearby a red circle will appear on the mini-map. If you would like to know a definitive location of a gang attack opportunity, refer to the video below. To trigger the gang attack, just shoot one of the gang memebers inside the red circle. Gang attacks take about 2 minutes to complete, depending on how many players you're playing with.

This is easier to complete on solo as you have more chances of killing enemies on your own. Enemies spawn randomly within that red circle so it's best to always keep cover in a safe area. You also cannot die or the trophy won't unlock upon completing the Gang Attack.

For a visual walkthrough and location of a gang attack, refer to the video below.

GTA Online: Earn 30 Platinum Awards.

In order to earn this trophy, you must earn a total of 30 platinum awards. Earning 30 platinum awards isn't that bad considering that there are over 85 platinum awards that you can earn in GTA Online so you don't have to earn them all.

There are over 22 awards that can be easily earned by doing one task, earning you the platinum instantly, while the rest of the awards have four ranks;

Bronze > Silver > Gold > Platinum

The tasks to most awards are cumulative, meaning that they'll add to your total.

Stick Up Kid
GTA Online: Hold up all 20 Stores.

You can earn this trophy as soon as you finish the final tutorial.

There are several stores in San Andreas that you can rob. They are indicated on the map by the *store icon* icon. In order to rob a store, you must equip a gun by holding and selecting one and then aim the gun at the clerk. The clerk will start removing money from the register. In order to speed this process along, you can either shout through a headset telling him to hurry up, or you can shoot the clerk and rob the register yourself by holding on the d-pad when near the register.

When you hold up a store, there is a short period of time where the store is closed before the store reopens again. For this reason, it is highly recommended that you complete the robberies in a solo session so you can avoid waiting on robberies from other players.

After you successfully rob a store it will be indicated on the map by a checkmark over the store icon, so it's easy to keep progress of what stores you've robbed.

Robbing a store will automatically give you 2 stars, while killing the clerk gives you 3, thus causing the cops to chase you. You can either just let them kill you to make this faster, or you can lose your wanted level quickly by accessing the Playstation Store in game. You will lose your wanted level after exiting the Playstation Store.

You can find the Playstation Store from the Pause menu under "Playstation Store", NOT from quitting the game from the XMB.

There is a chance that allowing yourself to be killed by the cops will result in your vehicle being impounded if it is nearby. With this in mind, it is less costly to lose your stars by accessing the Playstation Store rather than allowing yourself to be killed.

Enjoy Your Stay
GTA Online: Participate in everything Los Santos has to offer.

As the description says, you must participate in all 10 activities that Los Santos has to offer. Most of these activities are unlocked after you finished the tutorial, while darts and club activities unlock once you reach rank 7, which is the earliest that you can unlock this trophy.

You can check your progress on all activities you've completed in game by going to the pause menu and checking your progress under:

Pause > Stats > Unlocks > Progress.

Each activity that you've completed will be marked as "Yes" in the progress menu, while activities that you haven't participated in yet will be marked as "No". You can see every activity in the progress menu, but not every activity / objective is required to be completed for this trophy. The only activities that you are required to complete are as follows:
  • Get a tattoo (torso)
  • Buy clothes
  • Get a haircut
  • Play golf
  • Play tennis
  • Play darts
  • Play Parachuting
  • Play at the shooting range
  • Have an arm wrestle
  • Hold up a store
  • Buy a private dance

Credit goes to ClaytThaGreat from our sister site for the complete list.

In order for an activity to count as "Yes", you must complete the activity without quitting the session/ Although it will still be listed as completed, it will not count towards the trophy.
