Strangers & Freaks are the side-missions in GTA V and encompass 10% of the total completion. They are found by the various “?” symbols found around the map, but they can only be activated by the character appropriate to that side-mission. You can discern this by looking at the colour of the question mark: green () for Franklin, blue () for Michael and orange () for Trevor.

Only 20 of the 58 Strangers and Freaks missions are required for 100%. They are specifically the following missions, which are all Franklin's:

  • Pulling Favors
  • Pulling Another Favor
  • Pulling Favors Again
  • Still Pulling Favors
  • Pulling One Last Favor
  • Shift Work
  • Paparazzo
  • Paparazzo - The Sex Tape
  • Paparazzo - The Partnership
  • Paparazzo - Reality Check
  • Grass Roots - Franklin
  • Grass Roots - The Smoke-In
  • Exercising Demons - Franklin
  • Risk Assessment
  • Liquidity Risk
  • Targeted Risk
  • Uncalculated Risk
  • Far Out
  • The Final Frontier
  • A Starlet In Vinewood

Hobbies & Pastimes make up 10% of the total completion percentage. They are centred around the sporting and recreational activities available in the game. Only 42 of the 59 available Hobbies & Pastimes are required for 100%, but they have to be the following specific activities, not just any 42:

Get a private lap dance at the strip club

The strip club can be found by the icon on the map. To get a private dance, walk around inside near the dancers until one of them approaches you for a dance. Agree to it and pay $40 to complete this task.

Shooting Range

The shooting range can be found at the special Ammu-Nation stores on the map, represented by the icon. Go to the back of the store to the shooting range and certain challenges will be available. There are a total of 6 weapon types, each with 3 challenges. You must score at least a Bronze medal on each challenge for 100%. They are:
  • Hand Guns
  • Submachine Guns
  • Assault Rifles
  • Shotguns
  • Light Machine Guns
  • Heavy
Street Races

You are required to obtain at least a Bronze medal in each of the 5 Street Races around the map. These are only available to Franklin between the hours of 20:00 and 05:00 after you have completed the "Shift Work" Strangers & Freaks mission for Hao. The icon will only appear on the map during this time, so wait around or sleep if you need to advance time. Once you have completed one race, Hao will text you the location of the next one.

The five races are:
  • South Los Santos
  • City Circuit
  • Airport
  • Freeway
  • Vespucci Canals
Off-Road Races

You are required to obtain at least a Bronze medal in each of the 6 Off-Road Races around the map, found by the icon. All races are available from the start of the game, but you must score a medal in one race to unlock the next one.

As with the street races, using Franklin is preferable as his driving special ability makes it easy to stay on the tight, twisty and bumpy tracks.

The six races are:
  • Canyon Cliffs
  • Ridge Run
  • Mineward Spiral
  • Valley Trail
  • Lakeside
  • Eco Friendly
Sea Races

You are required to obtain at least a Bronze medal in each of the 4 Sea Races around the map. They can be found at the locations with the icon on the map and are located after completing the "Hood Safari" story mission. The four races are:
  • East Coast
  • North East Coast
  • Raton Canyon
  • Los Santos
Win at Tennis

For this requirement, you have to win a single match of tennis. It doesn’t matter how long the match is, so if you want it done quickly you can set the match to just 1 game. Tennis courts are represented by the icon on the map. The easiest location to earn this is on the court round the back of Michael’s house in Vinewood. She should be very easy to defeat.

Play 9 holes of Golf and finish on Even or Under Par.

The Los Santos Golf Course is represented on the map with a icon.

Just as the requirement says, you need to finish a round of golf (9 holes in this game) with a score Under Par or Even Par. If you have done this step correctly, at the end of your round it will say "Good Game!" followed by your score. If you finish over par, you will need to play golf again as it will not count towards your completion %.

The "Par" score is the average number of shots you should take to finish a hole and there are Par 3, 4 and 5 holes on the course depending on the length of the hole. Finishing a hole 2 shots under Par is an "Eagle", 1 shot under Par is a "Birdie", a Par score is obviously "Par", one shot over Par is a "Bogey", then Double Bogey, Triple Bogey etc.

Win at Darts

You can play darts in various bars around the map. Locations where darts is available are shown by a icon on the map. Simply win one match and this requirement is fulfilled.

You can set the match length to just "1 leg", so this should take less than a minute. To win, you must get down to 0 from 301, so you should aim for the small red section halfway up the "20" for 60 points. You need to finish on a double (the red or green section furthest away from the bullseye) or the bullseye to win. Aim the cursor with the left stick and then press to throw your dart. You can press once per leg to focus the crosshairs, so the best advice is to save this for your final throw for a double to increase your chances of hitting it.

Triathlon Races

You are required to obtain at least a Bronze medal in each of the 3 Triathlon Races around the map. Triathlon Races contain a running, cycling and swimming component, so a character with a maxed stamina stat should be used in these races. They can be found by the icon, and the three races are:
  • Vespucci Canals
  • Alamo Sea
  • Coyote Cross Country
Flight School

You are required to obtain at least a Bronze medal in each of the 12 Flight School lessons. The Flight School can be found by the icon on the map, which is in Los Santos International Airport. These 12 lessons act as a tutorial to flying, and are as follows:
  • Training Take Off
  • Runway Landing
  • Inverted Flight
  • Knife Flight
  • Flat Hatting
  • Touch Down
  • Loop The Loop
  • Helicopter Course
  • Helicopter Speed Run
  • Skydiving
  • Drop Zone
  • Earn Your Wings

You must complete all 13 Base and Heli Jumps to fulfil this requirement. Parachute jump locations can be found by the icon on the map.

Random Events contribute 15% towards 100% Completion. There are a total of 57 on the map, but only 14 are required to be completed for 100%. They are randomly activated whilst driving or running around Los Santos or Blaine County and are shown by either a blue dot on the mini-map (representing someone who needs help) or a red dot (an enemy or vehicle that needs stopping). Just approach the dot and complete the task that is required.

The following is a list of all 57 Random Events:
  • ATM Robbery
  • Bike Thief City (x2)
  • Bus Tour
