I did the first mission and now using the "sticky tape" method at the place when the character spawn after the first mission (in the little courtyard behind the buildings).

Already did 100 miles (10%) without any efforts (just with the game running alone) in ~10 hours

So it mean ~100 hours to get 1000 miles, far slower than the "fall through map glitch" but, at least, I don't have to play at all with the "Sticky Tape" method, just to switch my second xbox 360 on and then leave it run alone

By doing ~10h per day, it'll be done in 10 days

Does using multiple save files screw you out of the achievement? I'm at around 500 across two saves...

I think it's okay but not completely sure ^^;

521 miles right now in a week, leaving the 360 run alone a few hours per day.

Already more than 60 hours

Edit : Got it. With the "sticky tape" method, 95 hours with the 360 running alone to do 875 miles, then I did the remaining 125 miles manually on the "Grand Upper Bridge" (using both sides), which took 2 hours and a half.

So, in summary, the achievement only took me 2 hours and a half of efforts.

I am currently at ~800 miles.

Here's my method.

I am driving one car only, the Ascot Bailey that you get from the last Car Dealer mission. I have fully upgraded it, primary color is the cherry red, secondary is the most whitest color (gives the car the look it needs), and I am using the license plate "1KMILE," very appropriate amirite?

I am simply just circling the Grand Upper Bridge. I am constantly getting tickets but that doesn't matter, I just outrun the cops. When I run low on fuel, I go and save at my safehouse near the bridge. When my car gets dusty, I give it a nice car wash.

Finally got it right on the mark. I saved at 995 miles, just to make sure in case it was glitched but fortunately it wasn't. Good riddance with this stupid achievement!

This is by far the 2nd worst acheivement Ive ever had to get. (You cant beat Ninja Gaiden's weapons cheevos, those blow).

I played thru on Easy and then Hard, and got about 250 miles total. Even driving in circles around the bridge got me about 100 miles in one hour. So 350 miles tops with a lot of gameplay.

Now I'm normally one to complain about people using cheats and glitches to get achievements, but this one literally would take you 10-15 hours of just driving in circles to get. Forget that. I've resorted to the glitch of falling thru the map, and I dont like admitting that it's come to that. The wanted poster one was bad enough, now this? At least the poster one was worth 40G. This one might have been tolerable had it been 50g+, but 10g? What a joke. Better than NG's 5G for beating the entire game with 1 weapon though, I'll say that much.


If I didnt already have every other acheivement in the game+DLC's without much work, I NEVER would have even considered even cheating to get this one.

Only when you're playing the Jimmy's Vendetta DLC. It won't count in any other DLC or the story mode.

Only Jimmy's. But if you play Jimmy's once on Easy, then play Jimmy's on Hard with another save spot, the save spots combine the miles.

I left my car falling through space while I went to work. TV off, controller plugged to cord, entered the hole in a JUMP so no gas is consumed.

I was at a mere 280 mi when I left. We'll see where I'm at after about 4 hours.

I'm at 562 miles now, after a few hours here and there falling endlessly.

This would be painful if done legitimately.

Seems like a lot of time just for 10G. I was going to do this, since most grinding achievements are okay but this one....I don't know.

I saved my file @ 994 I belive if anyone wants it I can see if i can save it and send it to you!

I stopped the glitch that one thru the window, and just floating in air, stopped @ 950.. and then just tooled around the city for hours on end. and It popped for me :-) I'll do the same with the 50 miles in one car also. stop @ like 45 maybe and then just drive around for a few.

This achievement is an abomination.

After competing everything in the DLC, I had about 107 miles clocked. One tenth of what is necessary after finishing he whole thing, driving as much as I could.

The developers had to know that. So who decided on the 1,000? Hell, even a quarter of that would still be a huge grind if you only get 100 miles while playing the DLC.

I'm sorry, but the map just isn't that big or varied enough to make this achievement take so much driving to unlock. I realize that 2K-Czech are proud of Empire City, but driving around it that much to get the cheevo would make me come to despise the place.

Even using the glitch of falling through the map, this achievement is a beast in terms of time consumption. After 5 nights of falling endlessly, I finally got the damn thing to unlock while I slept last night.

Honestly, tho', I'd really like to know what the thought process was behind this achievement.

I agree with you totally, it is a ridiculous amount of miles for the achievement seen as you only get to just over a tenth's worth of mileage by completing the DLC to 100%. I only managed to do 123 miles in te whole DLC, am at 626 miles now and it is driving me crazy.

Also doing the falling glitch has not been great for me, I did it for 3hrs while watching tv and clocked up 100 miles, I thought that was quite good and that I should leave it on while I slept if it as averaging just over 30mph. I then did same glitch and left it on when I went to bed, came back after 8hrs and had only clocked up 131 miles! Not even 17 miles per hour.
