[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.
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.
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.
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:
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:
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.
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".
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.
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.
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.
i have started this trophy already u can only do it with michael u wikk need to go to ur phone then use the internet and type in "epsilon program" and just browse through it then after a while a while it have a strangers and freaks icon on ur map and that how to start it and just keep doing what they say
This achievement can only be obtained while playing as Michael and is very long. Pull up your in-game phone and access the internet. Type in "Epsilon" in the search bar, click on the website that comes up, and complete the Epsilon Program Identity Evaluation on that site. As soon as you quit out of the internet, there will be a new Strangers and Freaks on your map in Raton Canyon. Approach the red truck there and watch the cutscene that ensues. Following this cutscene, Michael will receive an email to donate $500 to the website in order to unlock the next mission.
After making the donation and passing some time in the game, head to the next Epsilon icon on your map near the corner of Clinton Avenue and Alta Street in Downtown Vinewood. C
Clinton Avenue and Alta Street in Downtown Vinewood. Complete this mission and you will need to donate another $5,000. Go ahead and proceed to the next Epsilon icon on your map in Grapeseed, Blaine County. During this mission, you will need to deliver five vehicles to the Epsilon Garage. You will be sent a photo of each vehicle (Pegassi Vacca, Benefactor Surano, Declasse Tornado, Enus Super Diamond, Dinka Double-T Motorcycle) to your cellphone to help track them down. If you have a lot of spare cash, access the internet on your cellphone and open the "Travel and Transport" menu. Go to the Southern San Andreas Super Autos website and buy the following vehicles: Enus Super Diamond - $250,000 Pegassi Vacca - $240,000 Benefactor Surano - $99,000 These purchased cars will be sent directly t
I'm at least 8 real hours past the cutscene with the truck still playing as Mic , I have yet to receive an email I have donated as well , have completed a few missions gone to sleep ect.. I even turned my ps3 off and on ( with 50 plus tries of getting the ps3 to read gta5 disc) anyways , I can't seem to get this icon to pop up let a loan an email :( any tips people? Help would be appreciated :p
I think this one glitched for me too. After delivering all cars, I got the email after auto-saving. Was done playing so I quit after saving, after continuing from my save I never got that email again. I've been doing at least 10 story missions after that. Tried sleeping many days, even donated more money...nothing works.
#23 You have to earch "Epsilon Program" on the eyefinder of your phone. Get into their web site and w8 a little, the ? mark will show up on your map. Im doing this mission after story mode, dont worry o/
I'm the wearing the robe part, it says that you have to wear it for 10 cumulative days. I wore for 2 consecutive days (got the messege saying that) and used another charachter. When i came back to Michael (the one with the robe) he wasnt wearing it anymore, so i dressed the robe again. After ome time i recieve a messege saying that the robe was wore for 1 day. Does it count as 3, since i wore it in 2 days before, ou not?
Note, Don't make the same mistake I did. If you want the cash, Do not walk down the steps at the end of the mission. Either run away right away and try to escape, or kill everyone there before they start unloading the car.
Hint: after the 5 miles walked phone call will say something you need another one. But dont worry, unlike as someone says in his stupid youtube video (where he is constantly chatting with his stupid girlfriend) you dont need to walk this mile. Just hop into the car and after the mile driven you will receive another phonecall.... And please, dont forget to screw with this azure fuckers, on the final mission when parked at the helo, get off the car RPG the helo and most of the cars, getaway and kill all the chasers. You will be satisfied with more than 2 milion in cash and with a great Mikes sarcasm...
when walking in the desert i saved every 1/2 mile. if you accidentally leave even for a second you lose your progression and have to restart. i just ran in the same spot in circles. its a shame its not like skyrim where you cant rubberband you control and walk into a corner. if you rubberband it and leave the area you lose progress which is bullshit coz i was at like 3 miles twice when that happened. they could at least mark out the area you need to be in.
Exercising the Truth had appeared for me almost straight after I had worn the robes for 10 days, but after completing the next story mission, it disappeared, and has not returned, no matter how many times I die or sleep.
I got my missions mixed up. I have completed Delivering the Truth. which is the one after wearing the robes for 10 days. Exercising the Truth (walk 5 miles in the desert) is the one that won't appear again.
I went to the red truck a few days ago (real life time) and they took me away and took my clothes, and I still haven't received/a text/E-mail about making a donation to the site. I went ahead and made the donation anyway, but still, nothing has occurred.
ANd to anyone that is just starting out on attempting this trophy, please make sure you have at least $100K to spare. I did not read this walkthrough and was stuck at the end needing to get $50K for the last donation. I am at a point where Michael does not have a lot of money and all the easy money options are open only to Franklin and Trevor.
Well, NOW Michael has more money than the other two combined.
I have finished this mission but frustratingly not got the trophy. Does anybody know if Marnie emails you mentioning there are hidden tracts out in the world to find even if you (accidentally) take the tractor as your reward?
