Easiest 70 Gold Medals
 
This is something I looked for while going for the 70 Gold Medals achievements, just a list of someone who had completed it of the missions they though were the easiest so I thought I'd post the 70 I completed in case someone else would benefit from it. Obviously this list will differ depending on play styles but hey it could be a start.

Missions
Prologue, Franklin and Lamar, Repossession, Complications, Chop, Father/Son, Marriage Counseling, Daddy's Little Girl, Friend Request, The Good Husband, Casing the Jewel Store, Bugstars Equipment, BZ Gas Grenades, The Jewel Store Job, Trevor Philips Industries, Did Somebody Say Yoga?, By the Book, Hotel Assassination, The Multi Target Assassination, Cargobob, Tow Truck, Boiler Suits, Masks, Trash Truck, I Fought the Law..., Eye in the Sky, Mr. Richards, Paleto Score Setup, Hang Ten, Reuniting the Family, Doting Dad, The Ballad of Rocco, Meltdown, Parenting 101, Gauntlet- Mission Row, Gauntlet- Rockford Hills, Gauntlet- Pillbox Hill, Something Sensible, The Time's Come, The Vice Assassination.

Strangers and Freaks
Pulling Favors, Shift Work, Paparazzo, Grass Roots- Michael, Rampage One, Rampage Two, Rampage Three, Rampage Four, Rampage Five, Grass Roots- Trevor, Exercising Demons- Michael, Paparazzo- The Sex Tape, Vinewood Souvenirs- Kerry, Pulling Another Favor, The Civil Border Patrol, Risk Assessment, Vinewood Souvenirs- Tyler, Vinewood Souvenirs- Willie, Minute Man Blues, Paparazzo- The Highness, Liquidity Risk, Paparazzo- Reality Check, Targeted Risk, Pulling Favors Again, Still Pulling Favors, Exercising Demons- Franklin, Pulling One Last Favor, Uncalculated Risk, Exercising Demons- Trevor, Closing The Deal, Surreal Estate.

Hope all that typing at least helps somebody, and gives a little bit of an idea towards the easiest/ fastest missions I found. :D

The Strangers and Freaks are a lot easier than the Main Missions imo. I got 42 golds on S&F and 40 on Main Missions.

I want to know if anyone has managed to gold "Targeted Risk". I must have tried that shit 20 times and I can't beat 7 seconds.. or I can't reach the truck lol

jayhawk4life0023 10-02-2013 03:37 AM

I got gold on targeted risk, I used my phone to time out 7 seconds, and then it was a lot easier.

animusVOXone 10-02-2013 05:15 AM

I've been looking for a list of easier missions. Thanks for posting this!

Also had problems with that one. Never could beat 7 seconds, because at eight seconds I hit the street face-first. but when you hold your left thumbstick slightly forward you get more forward momentum (start flying instead of falling like a bag of bricks). Landed on the truck with 14 seconds fall time.

OT: thanks for the list, I need 30 more gold. Personally I think "Franklin and Lamar" is not easy to gold. Cannot follow Lamar without multiple crashes,,,, and one alien just jumps in front of my car it seems.

JORDAN K 95 10-02-2013 07:06 AM

i did pretty much all stangers and freaks for gold. some main missions like buy masks and buy suits are easy and some of the first few. and a few i only had to do the time trials for, i had done everything else. so if you skip the cutscenes and dont die you will be fine.

if you die and respawn the timer will not restart. so keep that in mind!

I think I had like 10 seconds...but I found out why...you have to dive forward a little, then pull back just like when you have the parachute out....i just youtubed the mission and it showed how to do it...I was surprised it said like 10 or 12 seconds or something.

Jordbrett 10-02-2013 07:39 AM

For targeted risk jump and hit a stop watch (phone) right away when u leave the platform pull the chord at 9.00 and you'll be set.

Lavindathar 10-02-2013 08:54 AM

We need a list like this in the roadmap and guide, as this thread will no doubt get lost by the time I come to it lol

Fatalfox 10-02-2013 11:28 AM

Thanks! This helped me decide on the last few I needed.

animusVOXone 10-02-2013 09:10 PM

I only need 20 more gold. In the home stretch!

I agree with this. I'm quite a while from caring about going back for Golds, but I was hoping there'd be a list like this somewhere. I'd love to hear comments from anyone else about other missions they'd recommend in case any of the above prove tough for some folks.

Great post OP!

Darth VeX 10-02-2013 10:24 PM

Just so you guys know ... you don't have to do all the challenges in one play/replay ... if there are 4 challenges, you can do 4 replays and get each challenge in one of them.

Just thought I'd throw that out there in case you didn't know it.

M0rpheus 10-02-2013 10:40 PM

grass roots michael is the one with not getting hit by the aliens huh? is that an easy one??? not for me... btw stil need to play 40 missions and got now 32 gold, even need to replay all the easy souvenirs missions! honoustly I only like the rampage ones,especially the 4th,mixing grenadelauncher with a riffle! how cooler can it be!

There's a list I made last week in the Gold Medal checklist thread, along with conversation about different missions.

Yeah dude I failed that miserably the first time. But I golded it when I did my re-play through.

One I thought was pretty tricky was Trevors Grass Roots. Destroy 4 vans before they can spawn clowns. I did the 6 while dancing but couldn't do the vans before they spawn.

jlyanks85 10-13-2013 03:03 AM

I read here that the assassination missions don't count toward the achievement. Is that true? If so that really sucks since I have golds in all those missions.

mast3r 0r0m1s 10-16-2013 05:39 PM

Architects Plans is another easy one, jump off the side of the building when you get the briefcase (will cause you to die) and go deliver it to Lester. Supposed to leave the site in 45 seconds, I got out in 11 from this.

Black Barney 10-16-2013 10:43 PM

There are more easy golds than there are hard ones, we should just make a list of the ones to avoid.

The following two gold medals were total hell for me to get, I regret getting them and should have waited for something easier:

The Long Stretch (the drug mission with Franklin, Lamar and the other guy). The time constraint is rough.
Mr. Philips (or was it Mr. Richards?) - The one where Trevor needs to kill every fleeing biker. Absolute hell.

diseptikon 10-20-2013 03:37 AM

Can someone elaborate on the Gauntlet- Mission Row, Gauntlet- Rockford Hills, and Gauntlet- Pillbox Hill missions? I don't see them on the map and not sure what they are.

Tom115 10-20-2013 12:59 PM

Thanks for this... I'm on 57 now. Kinda stuck with the last 13 though :(

Black Barney 10-20-2013 04:58 PM

I'm trying to get gold for Trevor Philips Industries and I just can't seem to kill 32 people (I always get 31). Any tips? Anyone know of a good source for gold medal run guides or walkthroughs?

thanks in advance.

Suki 10-20-2013 07:07 PM

This will be handy thx mate.

They are the 3 missions leading up to the final mission were you have to go and collect the 3 cars called gauntlets, there really easy if you know the requirements before you go and collect them.

Mission 64: Gauntlet [1-3] (Triggered by either Franklin, Michael, or Trevor)
Mapped - Deliver the Gauntlet pictured in the email
Not a Scratch - Deliver a Gauntlet with no damage
Pimped Out - Spend $17,000 modifying the Gauntlet

Are they replayable or only obtainable the first go around? I dont see them on my replay list.

If you chose the roof top approach you won't be able to play them.

Heh, wrong heist you're thinking of. The 3 cars are part of the Subtle approach as opposed to the Obvious approach. The Subtle approach, most people don't go with since it has less of a payout :(

Tactical Tom 11-04-2013 01:16 PM

Bump for this Thread...I knew I'd seen it somewhere.

Now I've unlocked Kifflom, this is next on my GTAV checklist.

Hoping to get the 70 Gold Medals quickly but I know from past experiences that replaying these Missions can be an aggravating pain in the ass.

skeebear 11-05-2013 05:04 PM

I completed all the online chieves last week, and only have this one to do, and im finding it a real struggle to get motivated to do them. Think im gonna pass for a while and come back later to do it

Tom115 11-05-2013 05:12 PM

Don't forget about the Strangers and Freaks missions that you haven't done. I got about 15 easy Golds from forgotten S&F missions. Also don't underestimate how helpful YouTube can be.

70 golds really isn't that hard at all, coming from a very mediocre gamer...
