Earn 70 Gold Medals in Story missions.
How to unlock Gold RushThere is a total of 104 Gold Medals you can achieve. You can replay missions by going to => Progress => Story, there you can select any chapter you want and replay it.

Some information you need to know before starting:
- You can restart the last checkpoint or abandon the mission by going: => => hold , you will have the option to cancel the mission or restart the last checkpoint.
- You can track the challenges you complete during the mission by going: => => =>
- Don’t restart the last checkpoint on a mission with healing, accuracy, timing challenges, if you do, you will fail and you will have to replay the whole mission again.
- Dead Eye & Stamina tonics are not healing items and can be used.
As of the latest patch, your gear will carry over to mission replays, making them much easier than at launch of the game, and meaning you can play through the game normally without worrying about getting gold medals on the first run. You still have the choice whether to retry missions immediately after you complete them for the first time while they are still fresh in your mind or to work through them post story.
Unlike in GTA V you can't get the Gold Medal by replaying the mission multiple times and getting different objectives in each run. In this case you have to earn everything in the same playthrough. For missions that have objectives such as "Complete the mission in X", "Get X headshots", "Compete with X% accuracy", you can't fail the main objective or die because it will lock out the objectives. If this happens you have to leave to free roam and replay the mission from the pause menu again.
Under each story related trophy is a mission list with their difficulty rated from 1 to 5 based on different guides.
