Welcome to Grand Theft Auto V! Rockstar North's latest masterpiece returns to the fictional state of San Andreas and gives the player their biggest open world yet, with the choice to explore it via a riveting single-player campaign featuring three unique and instantly switchable protagonists or a free-roam online multiplayer experience that can be shared with as many as 16 friends. This game really needs little introduction, you know exactly what it is and we know exactly why you're here so on to the trophies!

The trophies are divided fairly equally between completing the story, finding all the collectibles, partaking in various miscellaneous activities and exploring the online component. In particular heavy time investment will be needed for the three trophies: 100% Completion for Career Criminal, 70 Gold Medals for Solid Gold, Baby! and attaining Rank 100 online for Above the Law. Many of the miscellaneous trophies will come naturally whilst progressing towards these, but we urge you to bear in mind the 6 missable trophies.

Note on missable trophies:

There are 6 missable trophies in the game. All of these trophies are missable post-game depending on a choice you make as Franklin during the final mission. Make sure when you are given a choice of three options that you choose "Option C", otherwise these trophies will be unavailable to you without starting a new game or unless you made a separate save file beforehand. 4 of these trophies (TP Industries Arms Race, Red Mist, Kifflom! and Three Man Army) become unmissable if "Option C" is selected so they can be earned at any point, however, special attention should be paid to Altruist Acolyte and Wanted: Alive or Alive as there are only a limited number of opportunities to earn these two trophies. When playing as Trevor, you will encounter select few Random Events that task you with driving an NPC to a given location. Instead of doing this, drop at least one off at the Altruist Cult in the mountains. Similarly there are only four Bail Bond missions in which you can capture a target alive so if all these opportunities are squandered, you will have to start a new game or revert to a previous save file to earn them. Please refer to the respective trophies in the guide below for more information.

Furthermore all cheat codes will disable trophies, however, they won't disable the autosave feature. If you want to have some fun with the cheats, then make sure you create a new save file first so that you can revert back to it and continue with your legitimate progress. Cheats list HERE.

Note on glitched trophies:

The Kifflom! trophy is causing issues with some players. The trophy is not glitched in the sense that if you complete the mission it won't unlock, but rather that the mission will not progress in-game so you cannot complete it. To combat this we recommend making a new hard save before you are tasked with stealing the 5 cars, if the mission does not progress after that like it should then you can try again. Please see the trophy description for more details [Fixed with patch 1.01].

Enjoy Your Stay has an issue where it won't unlock for some players. Try going back to the tattoo parlour and getting a tattoo on the torso area.

Finally, skipping story missions is not advised, particularly those with a story-related trophy attached to it. The trophy will not unlock if you do this, so you will have to replay the mission anyway at a later time. Furthermore, some people have reported issues with the trophies not unlocking even after replaying the particular mission various times, so it is highly advised to not skip any missions at all.



Step 1 - Complete the story, bearing in mind the missable trophies

For the first step you are free to do whatever you like in the game and just have fun, but ultimately you should complete all 69 main story missions. Once you have completed 68 missions (which can be checked by pressing , pressing twice to get to the "Stats" tab then selecting "100% Checklist") you should either make sure that you have earned all the missable trophies or be aware that at the beginning of the next and final mission you must choose "Option C" as Franklin. If you choose another option, the missable trophies will be unattainable unless you have a prior save to fall back on or start a new game.

If you find yourself stuck on any of the story missions, please refer to Wozamil's excellent videos here: Complete GTA V Walkthrough Playlist.

Step 2 - Find all collectibles and complete various miscellaneous activities for 100% Completion

This is the most time-consuming step in single-player. For 100% Completion and the Career Criminal trophy you are required to firstly finish all 20 of Franklin's Strangers & Freaks side-missions, which in turn requires you to find 50 Spaceship Parts and 50 Letter Scraps. For the other collectible-related trophies you must complete the 50 Stunt Jumps, 50 Under The Bridge Challenges, 15 Knife Flights and find all 30 pieces of Nuclear Waste.

Finally, you will have to win medals in various Hobbies & Pastimes as well as take part in certain other activities to earn 100% Completion. To help you with this, we have created a 100% Completion Guide & Checklist which provides both locations and descriptions for all collectibles and information for how to complete all other miscellaneous activities. Furthermore, you should make use of the 100% Completion Checklist Spreadsheet which goes hand-in-hand with our guide and can be used to track your progress. Finally, as the in-game stats page is lacking in detailed information, it is advised that you link your PSN ID to the Rockstar Social Club as its "Checklist" tab provides more detailed information on the missions and activities you have already completed.

Step 3 - Clean up of miscellaneous trophies and replaying missions for 70 Gold Medals

You will likely have a few trophies left in the single-player, so now is the time to focus on them. Most are pretty simple but significant time and effort will need to be spent on the convoluted Kifflom! side-mission and Solid Gold, Baby!, which requires you to earn 70 Gold Medals from a combination of the 69 main story missions and 45 Strangers & Freaks missions. During this endeavour you should make use of dcollins22's Gold Medal Requirements Guide.

Step 4 - All GTA Online trophies

Now it is time to step into the world of GTA Online to mop up the remaining trophies. Luckily, almost all of them can be earned with little effort by boosting either in a Solo Session or with friends in an Invite-Only Session. Furthermore, with the exception of the Rank-related trophies, all other trophies can be earned by Rank 20.

The two most time-consuming endeavours are earning 30 Platinum Medals for Decorated and accumulating almost 1.6 million RP for Rank 100 and Above the Law. The former can be boosted quite easily, but the latter will be a long and arduous process. If you need to, please make use of the Trophy Boosting Thread to find a partner for the Online trophies.

After this step you should have all GTA V trophies and your , congratulations!

Default Miscellaneous Trophies #1


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

There are a total of 116 missions in the game which you can earn a Gold Medal in and work towards this trophy. These comprise the 71 main story missions and the 45 (out of 58) Strangers & Freaks missions which offer a Gold Medal. Medals earned in Hobbies & Pastimes such as races and weapon challenges do not count for this trophy.

A Gold Medal is earned when all objectives in a mission are achieved. Luckily you do not have to earn them all in one run; you can replay a mission at your leisure and the objectives will stack with each repeat play of that mission (the 5 Rampages are the only exception to this, as all requirements must be achieved in one run). Individual requirements, however, are not stackable so if you get 8/10 headshots in your first playthrough you will still need to get 10 in your second. To replay a mission or check your current medal progress, pause the game by pressing and go to the "Game" tab with and select "Replay Story Mission" or "Replay Strangers & Freaks". Unfortunately you have to manually count how many Gold Medals you have earned by scrolling down the mission lists.

Certain missions have requirements such as "Time Completed", "Accuracy" and "Minimal Damage to Health & Armour". These challenges will automatically be void if you die and instead the checklist will say "Checkpoint", if this happens you must restart the entire mission again. Cutscenes also add to the timer on missions so be sure to skip them with .

A few tips to bear in mind:

Your character's current skill levels when choosing "Replay Mission" will be available in that mission, therefore it is highly recommended to do this trophy post-game when you have maxed out at least "Driving", "Stamina", "Strength" and "Special". Furthermore, all weapons and upgrades you have bought will be available, as will body armour if you purchase it before replaying a mission.

The Strangers & Freaks missions are by far the easiest missions to get a Gold Medal in as they are often very short and have only a few requirements to meet. Similarly the "heist preparation" missions are short and easy as are Lester's Assassinations. Unfortunately you can only replay the "heist preparation" missions that you chose to do during your playthrough i.e. "loud and dumb" or "smart", you can't do the other side's easy missions as well. You can, however, replay the final mission twice and choose both "Option A" and "Option B" for their very easy Gold Medals, bringing the total available for main story missions up to 71. For story missions in general you should replay those which have the fewest requirements, plus try and avoid those with criteria such as "Accuracy" and "Time Completed" because if you die you'll have to restart the whole mission again. With miscellaneous objectives if you fail you can often just kill yourself or fail the mission on purpose to try again.

If you wish to view all missions which are eligible for a Gold Medal, along with requirement checklists and tips for various missions, please see this guide by dcollins22: Gold Medal Requirements Guide.

Furthermore, if you wish to see a video walkthrough of a Gold Medal in each of the main story missions, see this video playlist created by GTA Series Videos: GTA V Missions 100% Gold Medal Walkthrough.

Career Criminal
Attain 100% Game Completion.

This trophy is not as daunting as it appears as you don't have to do absolutely everything in the game for 100% Completion. In order to satisfy the game's criteria for 100% Completion and unlock this trophy, you must complete all of the following:

Story Missions (50%)
  • All 69 Story Missions, including all 5 of Lester's Assassination Contracts.
Strangers and Freaks (10%)

Only 20 of the 58 Strangers and Freaks Missions are required for 100%. However, they have to be the following 20 specific missions available to Franklin rather than any 20:

Tonya
  • Pulling Favors
  • Pulling Another Favor
  • Pulling Favors Again (This rarely shows up unless you call Tonya to activate it).
  • Still Pulling Favors
  • Pulling One Last Favor
Hao
  • Shift Work
Beverley
  • Paparazzo
  • Paparazzo - The Sex Tape
  • Paparazzo - The Partnership ("Paparazzo - The Highness" and "Paparazzo - The Meltdown" combined)
  • Paparazzo - Reality Check
Barry
  • Grass Roots - Franklin ("Grass Roots - The Pickup" and "Grass Roots - The Drag" combined)
  • Grass Roots - The Smoke-In
Fanatic
  • Exercising Demons - Franklin
Dom
  • Risk Assessment
  • Liquidity Risk
  • Targeted Risk
  • Uncalculated Risk (You must first complete all other Dom missions and all 13 parachute jumps for this to be available).
Omega
  • Far Out
  • The Final Frontier (Requires all 50 Spaceship Parts to be delivered to Omega).
Dreyfuss
  • A Starlet In Vinewood (Requires all 50 Letter Scraps to be collected).
Hobbies and Pastimes (10%)
  • Get a private lap dance at the Strip Club.
  • Shooting Range: At least a bronze medal in all 3 challenges in each of the Hand Guns, Submachine Guns, Assault Rifles, Shotguns, Light Machine Guns and Heavy categories (total 18 medals).
  • 5 Street Races (at least a Bronze medal in each).
  • 6 Off-Road Races (at least a Bronze medal in each).
  • 4 Sea Races (at least a Bronze medal in each).
  • Win at Tennis.
  • Play 9 holes of Golf and finish on Even or Under Par.
  • Win at Darts.
  • 3 Triathlon Races (at least a Bronze medal in each).
  • Flight School (at least a Bronze medal in all 12 lessons).
  • Parachuting (all 13 Base and Heli Jumps).
Random Events (15%)
  • Complete any 14 Random Events when travelling around San Andreas.
Miscellaneous (15%)
  • Collect all 50 Spaceship Parts (From Beyond The Stars ).
  • Collect all 50 Letter Scraps (A Mystery, Solved ).
  • Complete 25/50 Under The Bridges.
  • Complete 25/50 Stunt Jumps.
  • Complete 8/15 Knife Flights.

  • Complete a Booty Call.
  • Use a prostitute.
  • Hold up a store.
  • Visit the cinema.
  • 4 Friend Activities (go to the Cinema, play Darts, go to the Strip Club and visit a Bar).
To keep track of your progress in-game pause it with , scroll over to the "Stats" tab with then selecting "100% Checklist". However, this in-game stats page has very limited information so we highly recommended creating an account with the Rockstar Games Social Club if you haven't done so already. Once on this site, select "GTA V" from the list of games and then click the "Checklist" tab. This will provide far more detailed stats and will show you everything that is needed for 100% and, more importantly, what you've already specifically accomplished (which the in-game page does not tell you).

The game will autosave after you complete every mission or activity which contributes towards 100%, this is helpful indication that something has been completed appropriately. There are also on-screen notifications once you pick up a collectible or perform a Stunt Jump which tells you how many you have or how many are required.

For a much more detailed guide on everything that is necessary for 100% Completion, please see our 100% Completion Guide supplement and if you want an easy way to keep track of your progress then please use the accompanying 100% Completion Checklist Spreadsheet created for us by GoddessMushu.

Default Miscellaneous Trophies #2

San Andreas Sightseer
Explore all of Los Santos and Blaine County

The description for this trophy is slightly misleading as revealing the ocean is also required, however, focus first on revealing all of the land area. You will notice that at the start of the game, despite the whole map being available to explore, the vast majority of it is clouded over with its features indistinguishable. The best way to reveal the map this is to get a helicopter or a plane (the fighter jet which you can steal from Fort Zancudo is preferable since it's the fastest) and fly along the coast to define the land boundaries, then start in one corner and work your way north (or south, depending on your starting point) before turning round and going back the other way in a parallel line. Do not worry as much about the ocean as you will reveal the majority of it whilst searching for Nuclear Waste for Waste Management .

If after all this you are still without the trophy, set your waypoint on areas of the ocean still undefined and either fly or use a boat to uncover these areas. Note: The map "ends" where the water turns deep blue so if you carry on past this point, you are not uncovering any more of the map.

Luckily you do not have to reveal every last pixel as the trophy unlocks once around 95% of the map is revealed.

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

This property can only be bought with Franklin and it costs $200,000. You have to beat the story mission "Nervous Ron" to unlock properties for purchase. After this mission the Downtown Cab Co. can be found in East Vinewood in the North-East of Los Santos. It will be marked on your map with a symbol.

Once the company is purchased wait until the manager, Raul, gives you a call about a private fare. Completing a normal fare in a company taxi won't count. Accept the task and go to the green "P" on your map. Wait until the VIP gets into the cab then drive him to the target destination. The trophy will unlock after the person leaves the cab and the "Private Fare Complete" notification appears on your screen.

You don't actually have to be in a Downtown Cab Co. taxi for this trophy, as Raul can call you at any point as long as you're playing as Franklin. Picking the VIP up in any car will suffice.

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

[MISSABLE] This trophy can be missed if you have not unlocked it by the time you get to the final mission. Make sure you choose "Option C" when offered the choice, after which this trophy is no longer missable.

These missions can only be done as Trevor. You have to beat the story mission "Nervous Ron" to unlock properties for purchase. The McKenzie Field Hangar costs $150,000 and can be found in the Grapeseed area, north of the Grand Senora Desert. It will be marked on your map by the symbol.

After purchasing it you need to complete 10 weapons-trafficking missions for Oscar. Five of the missions are done with the Cuban 800 plane located in the hangar and the other five are done with the BF Dune Buggy parked just outside it. Simply press to get in either vehicle and the mission will start. Once you complete a mission for one vehicle, do the other one then quick save and reload your game to respawn at the hangar with the next two missions immediately available. This is a much quicker way to respawn them, rather than having to travel a fair distance away and come back.

Plane missions involve either airdropping crates on a fixed location or bombing certain areas, both of which are done by flying over them and pressing to release. For both types of missions you will have to land your plane back at the hangar, therefore it is advisable to have Trevor's "Flying" skill maxed and have completed the basic tutorials at the Flight School to get to grips with handling planes.

The Dune Buggy missions are simple and just involve you driving to a nearby location to pick up a package (which you can do just by driving over it) and driving back to the airfield, occasionally having to either kill or escape from some chasing vehicles along the way.

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

There are 6 applicable hobbies and pastimes in which you must earn a gold medal. Luckily you only need one gold medal per type of activity, which are as follows:
  • Flight School (any of the 12 lessons).
  • Off-Road Race (win any of the 6 races).
  • Sea Race (win any of the 4 races).
  • Shooting Range (1 gold medal out of all 18 challenges).
  • Street Race (Complete the "Shift Work" Strangers & Freaks mission for Hao).
  • Triathlon (win any of the 3 events).
The shooting range is probably the hardest as you will have to get a certain amount of points within a time limit. Shoot quickly and always try and hit the yellow bullseye area of the targets to get the most points, try not to miss as that will reset your multiplier.

In the flight school you just need to beat a very simple time limit in the first tutorial. In the various race types and triathlon you need to finish first to get a gold medal. Street races become available by beating Hao's mission but completing that mission itself requires you to get a gold medal in the street race so you won't need to complete any further races. Keep in mind that Hao's mission only becomes available from 8pm-5am while playing as Franklin and is shown as a on the map. For the other hobbies you can choose whichever character you like.

Here is a video walkthrough for this trophy:


Red Mist
Complete all Rampages.

[MISSABLE] This trophy can be missed if you have not unlocked it by the time you get to the final mission. Make sure you choose "Option C" when offered the choice, after which this trophy is no longer missable.

Rampages are Strangers & Freaks missions that can only be done as Trevor and will become available after beating the story mission "Trevor Philips Industries". There are 5 Rampages and in them you need to kill a certain amount of enemies within a time limit. The first Rampage will be shown by the icon in the Grand Senora Desert. Here is a screenshot of its location:


After finishing the first Rampage, the next one will show up as a skull symbol on your world map. Rampages that you have already completed will have a green tick next to the skull, which looks like this icon: . You always need to complete a new Rampage in order to unlock the next one. The trophy will unlock after beating all 5 Rampage events.

You have infinite ammo for the given weapons along with 25 grenades. It'll greatly help you to have the "Traditional GTA" aiming mode on to as with the large groups of enemies, the auto-aim and ability to snap to different targets with will prove invaluable. You should also make liberal use of Trevor's special "berserk" ability by pressing and simultaneously as it fills up very quickly during Rampages. The game is confusing as the orange blur effect on the screen makes it seem like the ability is permanently activated, but this is not the case as you must activate it yourself.

The 5 Rampages are unlocked in the following order:

Rampage #1

Location: Sandy Shores
Requirement: Neutralize 25 Rednecks in 2 minutes using grenades and the AK47.

Rampage #2

Location: Rancho
Requirement: Neutralize 30 Gang Members in 2 minutes using grenades and the SMG.

Rampage #3

Location: Chamberlain Hills
Requirement: Neutralize 30 Gang Members in 2 minutes using grenades and the AK47.

Rampage #4

Location: Great Chaparral
Requirement: Neutralize 35 Attacking Soldiers in 3 minutes using the grenade launcher and the AK47.

Rampage #5

Location: Mirror Park
Requirement: Neutralize 20 Killer Hipsters in 2 minutes using grenades and the sawn-off shotgun.

Default Miscellaneous Trophies #3

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

[MISSABLE] This trophy is missable if you have not unlocked it by the time you get to the final mission. You must choose "Option C" when offered the choice, after which this trophy is no longer missable. An even more serious problem is that this trophy is [GLITCHED]. Many people are reporting an issue with Step 7 not progressing like it should as after stealing all the cars they never get the email to proceed to Step 8. For more detailed information see Step 7.5 below. Note: This issue was fixed with Patch 1.01.

This is a relatively complex trophy, you are required to complete numerous side-quests for the Epsilon Program. To begin with you need to be playing as Michael and have a total of $90,500 to earn this trophy, however, completing the final mission can net you as much as $2,100,000 so it is well worth the investment.

This mission will be detailed in small steps, if you wish to make use of the video then clicking the timestamp next to each step will take you to that specific step in the video.


Step 1 (0:05)

Open the internet browser of your in-game phone by pressing then go to the Epsilon website by typing in "epsilonprogram.com". Once there scroll down, click "Evaluate Your identity" and complete the evaluation. It doesn't matter which answers you pick, the end result is the same.

Step 2 (0:45)

A icon will show up in Raton Canyon after a while (about 12 in-game hours) so travel there.

Step 3 (1:09)

Approach the red truck and watch the cutscene, afterwards you will get an e-mail. Open the attached link by pressing and donate $500 to the Epsilon website.

Step 4 (1:39)

The Epsilon symbol () will appear on the map after around 12 in-game hours have elapsed. Go back to your safehouse and choose to sleep a few times and it should appear on your map. When it does, go there.

Step 5 (1:54)

After the cutscene you will get another e-mail, open the link and this time donate $5,000 to the Epsilon website.

Step 6 (2:12)

Go to the next (again, this will take a while until it shows up on your map).

Step 7.1 (2:31)

You will now need to collect 5 vehicles for the Epsilon Program. Luckily, they all have fixed spawns. Once you find a vehicle, take it to the symbol that appears and park it in the garage. The vehicles can be collected in any order you like but this order will follow the video.

The first vehicle is the Declasse Tornado which can be found here:




Step 7.2 (3:16)

The second vehicle is the Pegassi Vacca, found here:




Step 7.3 (3:36)

The third vehicle is the Benefactor Surano, found here:




Step 7.4 (3:57)

The fourth vehicle is the Enus Super Diamond, found here:




Step 7.5 (4:21)

Make sure you create a new save file before you pick up this vehicle!

This is where the trophy can glitch, as after you deliver it to the Epsilon garage there is a chance that you will never get the email which leads you to Step 8. If you deliver this vehicle and never get the email, reload your save and keep trying until you can progress [Fixed with Patch 1.01].

The fifth vehicle is the Dinka Double-T, found here:




Step 8 (4:58)

Travel to the next icon after waiting a short while.

Step 9 (5:18)

Complete the mission by searching for three items (a TV, a car battery and a shoe) with the extraterrestrial device provided. Hold to aim it and (if you are going in the right direction) the closer you get to the item the more the blue bars on the device will fill up, the beeping noise will become more rapid and your controller will vibrate quicker.

Step 10 (7:21)

Donate $10,000 to the Epsilon website (two donations of $5,000).

Step 11 (7:40)

Go to the next symbol after sleeping a few times.

Step 12 (7:57)

After the cutscene you will get another email. Open the attached link with and buy the Robes for $25,000 from the Epsilon website by clicking on the "Click here to purchase official Epsilon Robes set" link then "Buy Robes".

Step 13 (8:23)

After the robes have been delivered to Michael's house in Vinewood (this takes 24 hours), get them from Michael's wardrobe under the "Outfits" tab. You need to wear them for 10 cumulative days, the easiest way to do this is to keep going to sleep until 10 days have passed at which point you will get an email leading to the next step.

Do not switch characters during the 10 day period as it is highly likely that Michael will have changed out of the robes into his normal clothes once you switch back.

Step 14 (8:56)

Go to the next symbol after wearing the robes for 10 days.

Step 15 (9:25)

Complete the mission when you get there, which is extremely simple and requires you to deliver the plane to Jimmy Boston at a nearby airfield.

Step 16 (9:55)

Go to the next icon after sleeping a few times.

Step 17 (10:08)

You will have to walk (or run) 5 miles in the desert wearing Epsilon robes. You know you are in the right place when you get a notification saying "Now inside the Epsilonism pilgrimage zone". To rack up 5 miles you can either: Stand at one end of the desert and set your waypoint at the other then run back and forth or you can rubber-band your controller so that you don't have to do it yourself. After you have travelled 5 miles, a notification saying "5 miles walked in the desert - pilgrimage complete" will pop up in the bottom left corner and you will get a phone call.

Step 18 (10:54)

Go to the final icon, which will appear immediately this time.

Step 19 (11:05)

Finish the mission, there are three ways of going about this and completing any of the three will give you the trophy:

A) Deliver the vehicle to the target destination - The reward is an old rusty tractor.

B) Escape with the blue Epsilon car before going to the target destination - You receive $1,000,000.

C) Kill everyone at the target destination and escape the cops - You get all of the money ($2,100,000) and fulfil the Gold Medal criteria. You have to initiate the shoot-out with the Epsilon guards yourself.

It is recommended to go for "C" to get a good return on both your time and monetary investment in this long side-quest. Bear in mind that you cannot replay this mission and choose another option for the money so make sure you kill everyone the first time if you want to go down that route.

Default Miscellaneous Trophies #4

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

[MISSABLE] This trophy can be missed if you have not unlocked it by the time you get to the final mission. Make sure you choose "Option C" when offered the choice, after which this trophy is no longer missable.

Before you can do this you must complete the story mission "Friends Reunited" to be able to have all 3 characters hang out together. After that you can call the other two characters via the "Contacts" icon in the in-game mobile phone. Make sure you call both other characters immediately before picking them up, because if you pick one up first before you call the other then you will get a "busy" tone on your phone.

Pick your friends up with any four door car by going to their location on the map (shown by the icon) and beeping the horn with , then head to the Los Santos International Airport at the southern end of the map. Once you enter the airfield you will immediately get a 3-star wanted level. Keep driving from one end of the airport to the other and make sure that you don't lose the cops. It would also be highly advantageous to upgrade your car with the bulletproof tires and armour from any Los Santos Customs shop to make this a little easier. After 3 minutes of driving round the airport this trophy will unlock.

Here is a video showing this method:


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

For this trophy you will need to be eaten by a shark. Sharks spawn randomly in deep water, go out into the ocean with a boat or jet-ski and watch your mini-map until the area around you turns completely dark blue. Keep navigating the boat or swim around. After a while you should see a red dot on your radar representing a shark, jump into the water and wait until it kills you. This may take some time as the shark doesn't spot you right away so keep swimming around until it eventually kills you and you earn the trophy. On rare occasions the shark will actually attack the boat/jet-ski you are on and kill you that way.

Being killed will set you back 5% of your total income up to a maximum fee of $5,000 so if you want to save your money, you should make a new save and reload after you have the trophy.

Please see the video below for a video walkthrough of this trophy:


Altruist Acolyte
Deliver an unsuspecting victim to the Altruist Cult.

[MISSABLE] This trophy can be missed if you have not unlocked it by the time you get to the final mission. Make sure you choose "Option C" when offered the choice. Furthermore there are only a select few Random Events which provide you with an opportunity to deliver a victim so even if "Option C" is selected, this can still be easily missed.

Only Trevor can deliver people to the Altruist Cult as the Cult's location won't trigger with another character. A Random Event occurs when you are driving or walking around and your mini-map flashes white and a blue (representing an ally) or red (representing an enemy) blip appears on your map. For this trophy you are looking for any of the following, these are confirmed to work for this trophy as long as you are playing as Trevor:
  • Domestic
  • Hitch Lift (x4)
  • Drunk Driver (x2)
The Random Events have fixed locations, the easiest one to attempt this trophy is the "Hitch Lift" mission found at this location on the southern foot of Mount Chiliad:


If you cannot find the hitchhiker, simply drive in another direction for a short while and return. The event will spawn sooner or later if you keep doing this.

Once you pick up the hitchhiker he will ask you to drop him off somewhere. Instead of going to the target destination you must drive to the Altruist Cult marked by the icon on your map, this will be on the West side of Mount Chiliad and will only show up once the hitchhiker is in the car. Set your waypoint on this location and follow the purple route up to the camp. Wait for the gates to open and a scene will play, after which you will earn some money and this trophy.

Here is a video showing how to earn this trophy:


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

This trophy requires you to spend a grand total of $200 million whether it be on weapons, cars, vehicle mods, property, shares etc. You must also buy at least one thing with each character for it to unlock. It is best to do this trophy after you complete the heist near the end of the game called "Big Score" as each character will have a large chunk of money in excess of $25 million. To look up how much cash you have spent in total go to the "Cash" tab in the "Stats" section of the pause menu.

Luckily there is an extremely easy way of spending $200 million. Open your mobile phone with , then choose "Internet" and select the "Money and Services" tab. Open the LCN stock exchange website and invest all of your money in the stocks of any company in the list (the more expensive the stock, the quicker it will be to buy them all) under the "Markets" tab. You can do this by selecting "Buy" then hovering your cursor over the green "+" symbol and holding down until you have spent all your money. Press "Buy" again then "Confirm" and finally "Continue" to complete the transaction. As soon as you have done so, choose "Sell All" and "Confirm" to sell all the stocks back again and get your money back. Repeat the process as many times as necessary until you have "spent" $200 million. You won't lose any money if you sell the stocks quick enough, but it still counts towards the spending for the trophy.

Here is a video showing this method:


By far the best way of making money in the game is to take advantage of company stocks with Lester's assassination missions. Before you undertake each assassination mission, swap between all three characters and purchase as many stocks as you can from the following companies:

Hotel Assassination - Betta Pharmaceuticals (BAWSAQ stocks)
Multi-Target Assassination - Debonaire (LCN stocks)
Vice Assassination - Fruit (BAWSAQ stocks)
Bus Assassination - Vapid (BAWSAQ stocks)*
Construction Assassination - GoldCoast (LCN stocks)

*This mission is slightly different as you should buy the stocks just after the mission when prices plummet, they will rise again soon after.

After waiting a few in-game days, sell all of the stocks of these companies which each character and you will make a huge profit. This is because the assassination missions have you take out certain competitors of the above-mentioned companies, which will greatly boost up their market value. For a more detailed description of this method, see the following thread: http://www.ps3trophies.org/forum/gra...-missions.html

Default Miscellaneous Trophies #5

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

For this trophy you will need to turn a profit in the stock market, just one stock is sufficient. For information on how to purchase stocks, please see the A Lot Of Cheddar trophy. After a couple of in-game hours, the price of your purchased stocks will have changed. A profit is indicated by a green "up" arrow in your portfolio, whilst a decrease in value will be represented by a red "down" arrow. Sell any of your stocks that are making a profit and the trophy will unlock.

A guaranteed method to earn this trophy is by exploiting Lester's assassination missions with the method listed under A Lot of Cheddar. Another easy way is to complete the Random Events that flash up on your mini-map as you drive around. If you help people out, you will occasionally get lucky and one will email you revealing that they are actually rich and as way of thanks will give you stocks in their company. Go to your stock portfolio and immediately sell the stocks you were given and the trophy will unlock, despite the fact you didn't buy any of them.

Pimp My Sidearm
Fully mod a weapon.

This is a very simple trophy and can be earned either online, or in single-player as soon as you complete the "Complications" story mission as Michael. You will only need $3,381 which you should have by this point. Simply go to any Ammu-Nation store, select "Pistol" and buy the following to unlock this trophy:
  • Extended Clip - $387
  • Flashlight - $472
  • Suppressor - $1822
  • Army Tint - $100
  • LSPD Tint - $600
Furthermore you can even earn this trophy for free. If you have the Special/Collector's Edition of the game, you will receive the Pistol .50 and the Bullpup Shotgun for free as soon as you enter an Ammu-Nation store. Simply "buy" all available attachments (they're all free) for either of these to unlock this trophy. Similarly, linking your PSN ID to the Rockstar Social Club will unlock the Assault SMG and all attachments for that will be free to.

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

[MISSABLE] This trophy can be missed if you have not unlocked it by the time you get to the final mission and choose an option other than "Option C". Furthermore there are only four bail bond targets which provide you with an opportunity to earn this trophy so even if "Option C" is selected, this can still be easily missed.

Bail bond missions are only available to Trevor. After doing the story mission "Mr. Philips", travel to the icon North-East of Sandy Shores:


Once there, you will meet Maude and unlock the bail bond side missions. Go back to your safehouse and sleep. When you wake up you should receive an email with details about your first target named Ralph Ostrowsk. To find him you need to head east to the "Davis Quartz" quarry area as shown here:


After you locate the target use the quick save feature as insurance against accidentally killing him. Now quickly shoot the tires of his car and when he tries to run away just chase and shoot him with the stun gun (which can be purchased from any Ammu-Nation store for $90 or received automatically during the first "Civil Border Patrol Strangers & Freaks mission) or if you don't have one, punch him by holding and pressing . You can even try running him over with your car but only touch him lightly otherwise he will die. He should surrender after this, he will then enter your car automatically and you need to drive back to Maude. After you hand the bail bond target over to Maude the trophy will unlock.

There are a total of four bail bond missions and they aren't replayable so you only have a few more chances if you fail at this first attempt. They are:
  • Bail Bond Target #2: Larry Tupper - In front of the giant barn in the Grand Senora Desert.
  • Bail Bond Target #3: Glenn Scoville - Parachuting off the summit of Mount Chiliad.
  • Bail Bond Target #4: Curtis Weaver - In the homeless camp by the foot of Mount Chiliad.
Here is a video walkthrough:


Los Santos Customs
Fully mod a vehicle.

This trophy can be done either Online or in single-player. If done offline, in order to mod a vehicle you must first beat the story mission "Father/Son" to unlock the "Los Santos Customs" shops, located at the icon on the map. You will then need quite a bit of money ($60,000 to be safe) to fully upgrade a vehicle. Not all vehicles can be modified for this trophy, only those which have every type of upgrade available to purchase. Some cars that are eligible will have different upgrade categories to others so you will still need to buy something from every category that's unique to that car.

If you have bought the "Los Santos Customs" property with Franklin for $349,000 then all mods and upgrades are free, however, this total is substantially more than the maximum you should have to pay so we have decided to list the absolute cheapest way to earn this trophy (assuming you have not bought the property). Also bear in mind that you can save your game before buying the car and upgrades, then simply reload after the trophy has popped to avoid any monetary loss.

There seems to be a lot of confusion regarding using the three main characters' default cars. Some people have said that they got this trophy by modding them but many more have said that this never worked, therefore we have chosen to list a different car that is guaranteed to unlock this trophy.

To begin press to bring up your mobile phone, select "Internet" => "Travel & Transport" => "Southern San Andreas Super Autos" and buy the Weeny Issi (any colour will do) for $18,000 and retrieve it from your garage. This is also the same car that Michael's daughter Tracey drives, so you can get one for free from the driveway at his house in Vinewood as it spawns fairly frequently.

Now enter any "Los Santos Customs" shop and buy the following upgrades:

1. Armor -- Armor Upgrade 20%
2. Brakes -- Street Brakes
3. Brakes -- Sport Brakes
4. Bumpers -- Custom Front Splitter
5. Bumpers -- Custom Rear Bumper
6. Engine -- EMS Upgrade, Level 1
7. Exhaust -- Dual Exit Exhaust
8. Hood -- Vented Hood
9. Horn -- Truck Horn
10. Lights -- Xenon Lights
11. Plate -- Blue on White 2
12. Respray -- Primary Color -- Chrome
13. Repsray -- Secondary Color -- Chrome
14. Skirts -- Custom Skirts
15. Suspension -- Lowered Suspension
16. Transmission -- Street Transmission
17. Turbo -- Turbo Tuning
18. Wheels -- Wheel Type -- SUV -- Benefactor
19. Wheels -- Wheel Color -- Black
20. Wheels -- Wheel Accessories -- Custom Tires
21. Wheels -- Wheel Accessories -- Bulletproof Tires
22. Wheels -- Wheel Accessories -- Black Tire Smoke
23. Windows -- Light Smoke

Once you have bought all of the above, leave the shop to unlock the trophy. You must leave the shop otherwise the trophy won't unlock. Please see the video below for a video walkthrough of this trophy:

Default Collectible Trophies #1


From Beyond the Stars
Collect and return all spaceship parts.

There are 50 Spaceship Parts in GTA V. In order for the Spaceship Parts to spawn on the map, you must first complete the main story mission "Fame or Shame" (Mission 19 of 69) and then start the Freaks & Strangers side-mission "Far Out" by talking to Omega. He can only be found by Franklin and is located at the in Sandy Shores as shown below:


Once you have found all 50 Parts, return to Omega as Franklin for a cutscene, after which the trophy will unlock. Note: The Parts can be found by any of the three characters, but only Franklin can begin and finish the mission.

The Spaceship Parts are small rectangular glowing objects that emit a resonating vibration sound when you get close to them. As with all collectibles in the game, you need only walk over them to pick them up. Beware that 6 of them can only be reached with a helicopter. If you are having trouble locating some of the Parts, you can use Chop (as Franklin) to locate them for you. Stand next to him and press , from the list of options choose to take him for a walk with . When you are walking, press to send him out to find "pick ups" and if there is a collectible nearby he will run off and stand next to it. Follow the bone icon on the mini-map and the collectible will be there.

On extremely rare occasions a Spaceship Part may not be where it should be. If this occurs, switch characters then back again and it should be there.

Please see the video below for the locations of all Spaceship Parts or check the 100% Completion Guide & Checklist for a map showing the locations of all Parts, plus text descriptions with accompanying screenshots.


A Mystery, Solved
Solve the mystery of Leonora Johnson.

There are 50 Letter Scraps to collect in GTA V and they appear as soon as the game starts and can be picked up by all the three characters. Once you find all 50 you must go (as Franklin) to the labelled "Killer" located here:


There you will meet a character and the Strangers & Freaks mission "A Starlet In Vinewood" will begin. Simply chase and kill him in order to complete the Strangers mission, after which this trophy will pop.

The Letter Scraps are small, glowing pieces of paper. Just like with the Spaceship Parts some of them can only be reached with a helicopter. If you are having trouble locating some of the Scraps, you can use Chop (as Franklin) to locate them for you. Stand next to him and press , from the list of options choose to take him for a walk with . When you are walking, press to send him out to find "pick ups" and if there is a collectible nearby he will run off and stand next to it. Follow the bone icon on the mini-map and the collectible will be there.

On extremely rare occasions a Letter Scrap may not be where it should be. If this occurs, switch characters then back again and it should be there.

For the location of all the Letter Scraps please see the video below or the 100% Completion Guide & Checklist for a map showing the locations of all Letter Scraps, plus text descriptions with accompanying screenshots.


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

There are 30 Nuclear Waste collectibles in GTA V. To collect them you need to buy the Sonar Collections Dock, which is available for $250,000 after completing the main story mission "The Merryweather Heist". The dock can be bought with any character and is found here:


The Nuclear Waste collectibles are bright yellow and glow brightly underwater. They are all found at the bottom of the ocean and they can only be picked up by driving into them in a submarine, which will always spawn at the dock once the property has been bought. To control the sub press to accelerate, to brake and reverse, then and to ascend and descend respectively.

Buying the property will also give you a new app called "Trackify" which starts automatically when entering the submarine. The app works like sonar, showing a red blip on your mini-map that you must follow until you reach the Waste. On extremely rare occasions one of the Nuclear Waste items may not be where it should be. If this occurs, switch characters then back again and it should be there.

See the following video for the locations of all the Nuclear Waste (the order in the video matches the order on the Trackify app) or use the collectible map provided in the 100% Completion Guide & Checklist.


Each piece of Nuclear Waste you pick up will net you $23,000 per barrel and a lump sum of $250,000 once all 30 are collected. The funds will be added to your weekly income from the property.

Default Collectible Trophies #2

Show Off
Complete all Stunt Jumps.

There are 50 Stunt Jumps in GTA V and they are easily the trickiest "collectibles" in the game. You must always land in a specific spot and on all four wheels at the same time (both wheels on a motorbike), without touching anything mid-air. If you drive too fast and overshoot or drive too slowly and fail to reach the target landing area, the jump will not be registered. The game inconveniently does not tell you where the specific landing area is so many jumps will require numerous retries.

Make sure that you get the notification on your screen saying "Stunt Jump completed!" before you move on to the next one. This flashes up for a short period of time and if you miss it, there is no way to check which ones you have missed (either in-game or via the Rockstar Social Club). This will prevent endless frustration having to retry every jump to find the one you're missing.

With this temperamental system in mind, it is highly recommended that you make use of the quick save feature (accessed from the main menu of your mobile phone by pressing ) before you attempt every jump. After loading the quick save (by pausing, selecting the "Game" tab then "Load Game") you will be with your vehicle again and will be at the exact same spot where you saved the game. This way you will save lots of time otherwise spent finding a new vehicle or lining up the jump again. Try to quick save whilst you are actually driving as the game, more often than not, respawns you without your vehicle if you saved whilst parked up before the jump. However, if you quick save when driving you will always be in or on your vehicle when reloading.

It is best to do the Stunt Jumps whilst playing as Franklin. You can trigger his special ability by pressing and simultaneously to slow down time while driving, which will come in very handy for precise manoeuvring during these stunts. Furthermore, you can make adjustments to the vehicle's direction in mid-air by moving the . Use this to land on all four (or two) wheels and to avoid any obstacles in the jump.

The best vehicle for the majority of the Stunt Jumps is the Pegassi Bati 801 motorbike which can be bought from the vehicle dealership on your mobile phone (go to "Internet" => "Travel & Transport") for $10,000 whilst any of the fast sports cars found in the Vinewood area will usually suffice. For some of the more precise jumps, a car that handles exceptionally well (such as the Taxi) is more preferable than speed. If you find yourself stuck at a jump use the same type of vehicle that is shown in the video, which can be seen below:


Please check the 100% Completion Guide & Checklist for a map showing the locations of all Stunt Jumps and timelinks for each specific jump.

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

Under The Bridges

There are 50 bridges that you must fly under across the map. First off, get a Maverick helicopter from the roof of the South Los Santos Hospital. If the Maverick doesn't spawn, go down the ladder to the street and up to the helipad again until it does. All 50 Under the Bridges can be finished with this helicopter and most are very easy, but there are a few tricky ones with very little room to manoeuvre. If you can't do these with the Maverick, the best helicopter for them is the Buzzard as it is smaller. This is located in Fort Zancudo or can be bought for $2 million from the "Warstock Cash & Carry" dealership on your phone.

For all of the bridges we strongly advise you make use of the quick save feature when you are approaching one, just in case something goes wrong. Therefore if something goes wrong and you hit the bridge or the challenge does not register, you can quickly reload and try again. It is also highly recommended you max out the "Flying" statistic of one of your characters first by completing the lessons at the Flight School at the Los Santos International Airport (Trevor will be nearly maxed out when you gain control of him in the story). This will greatly help with stability and control for the delicate movements.

You must not touch the sides of the bridges at all with your rotor blades, otherwise the challenge will not register. Only move on to the next bridge once an on-screen notification appears saying "Under The Bridge Completed!"


Knife Flights

There are 15 Knife Flight challenges in the game. A Knife Flight is when you tilt a plane on its side so that the wings are vertical, and to complete a "challenge" you have to do this manoeuvre between two buildings. Use the to tilt your plane on its side, then use the rudders with and to maintain altitude and balance.

The best aircraft to do all of the challenges with is the fighter jet due to its speed, although the stunt airplane that occasionally appear at the McKenzie Field Hangar might be useful if you are struggling with the trickier challenges due to it being thinner and having the more precise control overall. However, it is much slower so you have to maintain your position and balance for a much longer period. The fighter jet can be found at Fort Zancudo, the military base in the west of San Andreas. You will automatically get a 4-star wanted level when you enter the base so make a quick save beforehand as it will likely take a few tries to successfully steal the jet.

As with "Under The Bridges", it is highly recommended you use a character with a maxed out "Flying" statistic to give you more control over your aircraft. Completing the "Knife Flights" lesson at the Flight School is also good preparation for these challenges as the tutorial tells you exactly what to do. Most importantly, remember to quick save just before you attempt a challenge so you can easily restart if the attempt goes awry. Only move onto the next challenge once "Knife Flight Completed!" appears on your screen.

Please check the 100% Completion Guide & Checklist for maps showing the locations of all "Under The Bridges" and "Knife Flight" challenges.
