The 'Vinewood Souvenirs - Tyler' (I think) one is nearly impossible because you start on foot and you're given thirty seconds to run up, kill everyone, and retrieve the golf club. Even if you die and respawn a little further, it's still hard. I can't do it.

If you guys are still wondering what missions count or don't count for the gold Medals, check the social site at http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/...reer/checklist

Checklist items marked with a colored bar indicate contribution to the 100% completion. It's super easy and lists where all missing collectibles, S&F, random events, etc are located.

You are mixing up gold medals and 100% completion. Totally different achievements.

If we are talking about "something sensible"/"third choice"/<cant remember> then yeah you can do all 3 and get 2 easy gold medals

Same problem here. I gave up on that for now. It takes more than 30 seconds to get to that dude. If you use checkpoint then you start closer to them, but the game adds previous time, so this makes the mission quite impossible to do.

Plus, you could've luckily done some long mission, only missing one requirement, and it'll be "easy" for you to go back and just do that, where for someone else, they may have missed most of, if not all, the requirements.

The 70 wasn't hard. Just go through as many Strangers & Freaks as possible. The two ending story options and the Gauntlet missions lead up to five easy Golds.

Got the achievement after 69 Gold medals. Well that was much easier than i thought. Still have left 27 story and 17 strangers & freaks missions to beat lol.

Should have been ''Get 100 Gold medals''.

I was thinking the same thing actually but Bigg D is probably right. By the time you've completed the game you should have a pretty good idea of which ones would be the easiest for your own skill set. Of course the easiest ones are going to be the Strangers & Freaks missions. I'll have to survey how many gold medals I have when I finish the game today and see if I'll even try for this.

Is this not unlocking for anyone else? I have almost 80 gold medals and no achievement.

I only need 3 more gold medals. And one of my easy ones (stealing the bug truck) won't load. The damned game just sits on a loading screen. D:

EDIT: I just had this unlock at 68 gold medals. There must be a couple missions which count towards gold medals, but aren't replayable.

Yeah, if I were to make a rough outline of which are easy to get, it'd be:

Assassinations (5)
Mary Ann's Races (3)
Nigel's Souvenirs (5)
...
...
...
Pretty much all the S&F missions, lol.

I had started to, but then figured some people might not find some as easy as others, but here are the ones I typed out before giving up

Edit: I now have 70 completed, these are the one I did for the achievement. I tried to stay away from the losing health and accuracy ones, but there are a few. May not be the ideal list for everyone, but it's a start I guess. I put a few notes, because some like Masks and Boiler Suits only take about 12 seconds to get gold for the entire mission. Youtube was a huge help for completing these.

Main Missions

Prologue
Repossession
Chop
Complications
Mattiage Counseling
Daddy's Little Girl
Friend Request
- activate Michaels ability right before going into the cutscene. Had a time of 11 seconds. (I don't take credit for this method, just came across it in my search for how to do missions)
Good Husband
Casing the Jewelry Store
BZ Gas Grenades
Bugstars Equipment
Trevor Philips Industries
By the Book
Did Somebody Say Yoga?
Scouting the Port
Minisub
Trash Truck
Tow Truck
Masks
(this and Boiler Suits take a whole 12 seconds to do the whole mission)
Boiler Suits
Hang Ten
Architect's Plans
Doting Dad
Fire Truck
Stingers
Gauntlet x3
(redoing these missions -scratched one and brought back another one not pictured- put me in the correct car from the start, so all you have to do is upgrade it and then stash it.
Hotel Assassination
Vice Assassination
Bus Assassination
Time's Come
- Don't forget you can replay the other 2 endings you didn't choose for 2 easy Gold medals (assuming you chose C)
Something Sensible - See Time's Come

Strangers & Freaks

Tow Truck Missions (Tonya) - Pulling Favors, Pulling Another Favor, Pulling Favors Again, Still Pulling Favors, Pulling One Last Favor
Paparazzo (Beverly) - Paparazzo, Sex Tape, Highness, Reality Check
Grass Roots - Michael, Pickup, Drag
Exercising Demons - Michael, Franklin,
Target Practice
Civil Border Patrol (Use the mini-gun as soon as they try leaving the parking lot), Minute Man Blues
Kifflom - Chasing the Truth. Delivering the Truth, Unkowing the Truth
Dom - Risk Assessment, Targeted Risk, Uncalculated Risk, Liquidity Risk,
Rampage - 1-5
Vinewood Souvenirs - Willie, Tyler, Kerry, Mark, Last Act
Starlet in Vinewood
Josh
- Closing the Deal, Surreal Estate, Breach Contract

Are you blind? There's literally a post right above yours detailing the easiest missions. No one is going to baby feed a detailed walkthrough of all seventy missions and how to Gold Medal them. That's beyond ridiculous.

Apparently this mission is glitched. If you load it from the Strangers and Freaks menu it's impossible to get gold but if you have an old save with it you still can get gold. Just what I heard.

I stayed pretty close to her (this is through replay) and I snapped a photo after she was cuffed, and neither of the requirements were checked.

They do, if they're in the S&F or Missions replay menu they count. It's the Trafficking missions that don't count.

Not true. I did both requirements in a replay and got the gold medal.

That list can obviously be tweaked to your liking, as there are no guaranteed "easiest Gold" missions. Well, maybe the 'Gauntlet' ones, those are just too easy.

I didn't get a single Gold on any of the Rampage missions. I just had a hard time getting everything in one go.

Yeah, just meant it as a starting point for anyone looking for what may be the easiest missions. There were some on there I did a few times trying to hit certain points (couldn't get the 70% shooting tires on Target Practice, or the Accuracy on Repossession), but I found them to be easier than many of the other accuracy and health missions. Masks and Boiler Suits were the 2 easiest, you basically start the mission in front of the shop, buy the items, it's over. Masks took 12 seconds.

Some will find Rampages hard, but with the auto lock on targeting I just snapped in/snapped out/back in on targets and got all in one go.

Just hope someone will make use of it and be able to tailor it to their needs and playstyle.

Completely disregarded the auto-lock on, which probably makes Rampages 100x easier. When I did them, I didn't even take into consideration I was using free aim. Shit.

I didn't get a single thing on 'Target Practice' my first time around, and then when I redid it, I got everything perfectly in a really fast time, and I even managed to hit four tires with three shots, so my accuracy was 130% or something like that.
