Achievement Guide & Roadmap by BiggD & B A R 4 D


Grand Theft Auto 5, like its predecessors, has a wide variety of criteria to fulfil in order to attain 100% Completion and ultimately the Career Criminal achievement. The purpose of this guide is to offer a detailed checklist of exactly what is required for 100%, to provide video, text and image descriptions for every collectible, and to give information about the miscellaneous events and activities that are also required.

Note that not all collectibles are required for 100% Completion, but those that aren’t are linked to other single-player achievements. Therefore, we have included these collectibles at the end of this guide in order to keep this as the one-stop place for everything you need to obtain every collectible achievement in the single-player along with Career Criminal.

To keep track of your progress in-game, you can do so by pausing with , scrolling over to the “Stats” tab with and then selecting “100% Checklist”. However, this in-game stats page has very limited information so we highly recommended creating an account with the Rockstar Games Social Club if you haven’t done so already. Once on this site, select “GTA V” from the list of games and then click the “Checklist” tab. This will provide far more detailed stats and will show you everything that is needed for 100% and, more importantly, what you’ve already specifically accomplished (which the in-game page does not tell you).

The game will autosave after you complete every mission or activity which contributes towards 100%. This is helpful indication that something has been completed appropriately. There are also on-screen notifications once you pick up a collectible or perform a Stunt Jump which tells you how many you have or how many are required.

100% completion is unmissable; your choice of ending will not prevent Career Criminal from being attainable.


The following list contains a brief overview of everything that is required for 100% Completion and the Career Criminal achievement. For more detailed descriptions, please refer to the guide below. If completing a particular action unlocks a certain achievement, this will be listed too.

Story Missions (50%)
  • All 69 Story Missions, including all of Lester’s Assassination Contracts (All story-related achievements).
Strangers and Freaks (10%)

Only 20 of the 58 Strangers and Freaks Missions are required for 100%. However, they have to be the following 20 specific missions rather than any 20:

  • Hao (Shift Work mission).
  • Barry (only Franklin’s 2 missions).
  • Fanatic (only Franklin’s mission).
  • Dom (4 Extreme missions).
  • Omega (Completed after collecting and returning all 50 Spaceships Parts to Omega).
  • Dreyfuss (Available after collecting all 50 Letter Scraps).
Hobbies and Pastimes (10%)

  • Use a prostitute.
  • Hold up a store.

  • All 50 Stunt Jumps (Show Off).
  • All 50 Under The Bridges (Close Shave).

Simply click "File" and then "Download As" to save it to your computer, or just print it off and use it that way. We'd like to say a huge thank you to GoddessMushu for creating this: 100% Completion Checklist Spreadsheet

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:

Tonya
  • Pulling Favors
  • Pulling Another Favor
  • Pulling Favors Again
  • Still Pulling Favors
  • Pulling One Last Favor
Hao
  • Shift Work
Beverley
  • Paparazzo
  • Paparazzo - The Sex Tape
  • Paparazzo - The Partnership
  • Paparazzo - Reality Check
Barry
  • Grass Roots - Franklin
  • Grass Roots - The Smoke-In
Fanatic
  • Exercising Demons - Franklin
Dom
  • Risk Assessment
  • Liquidity Risk
  • Targeted Risk
  • Uncalculated Risk
Omega
  • Far Out
  • The Final Frontier
Dreyfuss
  • 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
Parachuting

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
  • Construction Accident
  • Escape Paparazzi
  • Gang Intimidaion
  • Getaway Driver
  • Mugging (x3)

Miscellaneous activities contribute 15% towards 100% Completion. This section is mostly concerned with the game’s collectibles. For more info about miscellaneous activities, such as using a prostitute, completing a booty call & robbing a store, please scroll down to the end of the collectibles section.



There are a total of 50 Spaceship Parts in GTA V, and collecting them all will earn you From Beyond The Stars and count towards 100% game completion. In order for the Spaceship Parts to spawn on the map, you must first complete the main story mission “Fame or Shame” (Mission 19 of 69) and then start the Freaks and Strangers side-mission "Far Out" by talking to Omega. He can only be found by Franklin and is located at the green question mark in the eastern section of Sandy Shores. Once you have found all 50 Parts, return to Omega for a cutscene, after which the achievement will unlock. Note that the Parts can be found by any of the three characters, but only Franklin can begin and finish the mission.

The Spaceship Parts are small, glowing objects and emit a resonating vibration sound when you get close. Beware that 6 of them (#28, #33, #36, #37, #45 and #46) can only be reached with a helicopter. You can easily find one of these on the helipad on the roof of the South Los Santos hospital, which is shown at 10:39 in the above collectible video and in the location shown on the image below:



Locations

Here is the full collectible map for the Spaceship Parts. Please click on the image below to be taken to the full-sized map in full 8192 x 8192 resolution! The numbers on the map match up with the video and the numbers listed below. #1 is located at the very north of the map, so follow the trail from there.


Clicking the bolded number/location below that designates each collectible will take you to that specific Spaceship Part in the video.

#1 - Mount Chiliad

You will come to a farm area with two large barns. One of the barns has a “Zancudo Grain Growers” logo painted on the side of it, and in the back of this barn on the floor is the Spaceship Part.


#2 - Mount Chiliad

This is located in another farm area. The Spaceship Part is located inside the large shed with a red crate outside the entrance.


#3 - Grapeseed

There will be a field filled with metal pens in which cows are grazing. In the middle of this area lying on the floor is the Spaceship Part.


#4 - San Chianski Mountain Range

At the top of the mountain trail there will be a circular road. By the side of it is a wrecked red boat next to a barn. Inside this barn is the Part.


#5 - San Chianski Mountain Range

You will come across a small hill decorated in colourful graffiti by alien cultists. On the top of this hill on a small ledge is a Spaceship Part.


#6 - Sandy Shores

This Part is located underwater in the small bay on the north of Sandy Shores. Dive down underwater and you will see the Part glowing brightly against the seafloor, so it’s hard to miss.


#7 - Grand Senora Desert

Next to the off-road trail is a rock formation. Up the small hill underneath the face of the rock is this Part.


#8 - Grand Senora Desert

By the side of the road will be 5 huge satellite dishes. If you’re looking at them from the main road, the right-hand most dish will have the Part. Climb up the stairs on the dish to get it.


#9 - Grand Senora Desert

You should see a large boat with the initials “LS 4145 RS” on the side of it amongst a few rusty trailers. The Part is located next to the boat.


#10 - Grand Senora Desert

By the side of the road you will see a derelict house with boarded up windows. Behind the house where the back porch was is the Spaceship Part.


#11 - Grand Senora Desert

This Part is located down in the small rocky valley beside the road. It will be amongst some rocks.


#12 - Grand Senora Desert

On the top of the hill is a small house with a green roof and a US flag outside the front. Behind the house is a white banner strung between two posts with “Welcome” written on it. The Part is located under this banner.


#13 - Ron Alternates Wind Farm

This Part is located inside a cavern, so you will need to either swim or use a boat/jetski to get inside. Once inside, dive down underwater and you will easily see the Part glowing.


#14 - Tatavium Mountains

To the right of the large cavern entrance, there is a tiny beach. On this beach is the Spaceship Part.


#15 - Tatavium Mountains

You will see five pipes running down into the water. In the left-hand pipe is the Spaceship Part.


#16 - Davis

Down by the rocks is a small wooden jetty with two red safety rings housed on it. Dive underneath this jetty and the Spaceship Part will be on the seafloor.


#17 - Murreta Heights

By the side of the freeway is an area where water comes out and flows down under the freeway. You should see a brown metal walkway with three concrete pillars jutting out from underneath it. On the middle of these pillars is the Spaceship Part.


#18 - El Burro Heights

In the construction area you will find two freight containers side by side. The green one has an opening and inside it is the Spaceship Part.


#19 - Pacific Ocean

This one is located on a small island out to sea. Just swim the small distance to the island and then climb onto the rocks. The Part will be amongst the rocks.


#20 - El Burro Heights

In front of the freeway-supporting wall with the “VAGOS” graffiti on it is a sewer pipe that pumps water out to sea. Right next to the pipe opening is the Spaceship Part.

#21 - Elysian Island

Underwater here will be the ruins of a metal structure. In amongst it is this Spaceship Part.


#22 - Elysian Island

In between the two huge domes is a set of stairs. Take the first flight up and at the fork take the left staircase. Keep following the stairs and you’ll eventually come to a building with a ladder on top of the dome. Climb the ladder and drop down onto the pipe. Run along the pipe, and halfway between the two domes on the pipe will be the Spaceship Part.


#23 - Rancho / Dutch London St

In a fenced area you will see four decorated alien-like sculptures that look like futuristic towers. Go inside the entrance and the ledge around the bottom of the right-hand tower will have the Spaceship Part on it.


#24 - Los Santos International Airport

Right in the southern-most section of the airport, just inside the fence. This Part is located next to a dumpster and a stack of red, white, green and blue crates.


#25 - Davis / Innocence Blvd

This Part is located on the roof of Central Los Santos Medical Centre. Climb up the stairs to the top of the first roof, then up the ladder to get onto the highest roof. The Spaceship Part will be next to the helicopter on the right-hand side.


#26 - Strawberry / Elgin Ave

Underneath the freeway is a campsite where the homeless are dwelling. The Spaceship Part will be in front of a couch with a red and pink sleeping bag on it.


#27 - Textile City

In this alleyway there will be numerous shops and market stalls. Find the “Bean Machine” coffee shop, and just to the right of it will be a small alcove where this Part can be found.


#28 - Pillbox Hill

[Helicopter Required] You will need to fly up to the top of the “Penris” building for this one. Land on the roof and grab the clearly-visible Spaceship Part.


#29 - Pillbox Hill

This Part is located in a tunnel, the entrance of which can be found in Textile City. Drive into the tunnel and take a right at the fork. Keep driving along the train tracks until you are met with two enclosed tunnels. Take the left tunnel and drive through it until you are met with another choice of two tunnels. Take the right one this time and drive through it a short way until you come out into a room. Go up the ramp to the right to find some constructions workers stood around. The Spaceship Part is located behind the red barrier next to a table with a blueprint on it.


#30 - Vespucci Canals

Next to the road you will see a huge “Destroy The Ring” billboard. Climb up the ladder that goes up the billboard’s supporting pole. Go up the short ramp and then climb the second ladder. The Spaceship Part will be on the platform at the top of the billboard.


#31 - Little Seoul / Del Perro Fwy

This is located inside the Vinewood studios. You will have to drive or run through the barrier at the entrance. Take the first left and then right in front of you will be an open doorway and some stairs. Go up the stairs, take a right and then a right again up another set of stairs. Climb over the wall in front of you and the Spaceship Part will be on the balcony here.


#32 - Burton

The Spaceship Part will be right in the middle of the small grassy area in the middle of the circular road.


#33 - Burton

[Helicopter Required] This Part is located in the empty swimming pool on the roof of the hotel. Fly up there and jump down into the pool to grab it.


#34 - Rockford Hills

This Part is located on a tiny island in the south-western lake of the golf course. Jump into the water and swim to the island for it.


#35 - Vinewood Hills

By the side of the lake is a small stone building. If you dive into the lake just to the right of the building, you should see the Spaceship Part behind you on the seafloor next to the side of the stone wall.


#36 - Vinewood Hills

[Helicopter Required] You will see a concrete jetty sticking out from the side of the road with a circular building at the end of it. Unfortunately, the building is too high to climb up so you will need to delicately land a helicopter on top of it to grab the Spaceship Part.


#37 - Vinewood Hills

[Helicopter Required] This is another one which requires a helicopter. You will need to land your helicopter on the roof of the Galileo Observatory, and the Spaceship Part will be located next to the dome on the left-hand side of the roof.


#38 - Richman Glen

In front of the house is a large tree next to a small circular fountain. The Spaceship Part is at the base of the tree.


#39 - Tongva Hills

On your map you should see a stream going off from the side of the road. Follow this stream about halfway and you should see an opening in the rock face in front of you. Just inside the entrance is this Spaceship Part.


#40 - Banham Canyon

Behind the house at the end of the short road is a swimming pool. Right next to this is small white concrete square on the ground that has a telescope erected on it at night. On the ground next to the telescope is this Part.

#41 - Tongva Hills

On the side of a hill is a farm area with lots of hedges. The Spaceship Part is located halfway up the hill in between the rows of hedges. You won’t be able climb over them so you’ll have to find a gap in the side and run along the row.


#42 - Tongva Hills

Underneath the bridge you will see a waterfall. Do not dive in off the bridge as you will die. Work your way down and in the small pool at the bottom of the waterfall, dive down and find the Spaceship Part underwater.


#43 - Zancudo River

Underneath the wooden bridge over the river, this one is located between the central support pillar and the small support at the end of the bridge.


#44 - Zancudo River

This one is located in a small alcove in the rocks on the river bank. The alcove will be on the left if you are looking at the bridge ahead of you in the distance.


#45 - Mount Josiah

[Helicopter Required] This Part is quite tricky and requires a helicopter. Fly up to the side of Mount Josiah where you can see levels of rock, almost like giant steps. You should see the Part glowing on one of the ledges, so land your helicopter on the one above it and jump down.


#46 - Pacific Ocean

[Helicopter Required] This is by far the most difficult Spaceship Part to get. It will require extremely precise control with a helicopter, or pinpoint landing with a parachute. If you are using a helicopter like in the video, you will need to land perfectly in between the concrete support beam and the underside of the bridge. The Spaceship Part will be on a ledge.


#47 - Cassoy Creek

Directly underneath the bridge is a small outcropping of rock right next to a waterfall. The Spaceship Part is on this outcropping.


#48 - Paleto Cove

This Part is easy to find, it’s in plain sight at the top of the small hill that extends out from the beach.


#49 - Paleto Forest

You will see the entrance to a small concrete tunnel, with a fallen tree trunk across the entrance. Just inside the tunnel is this Part.


#50 - Paleto Forest

On this block you should see an ugly grey tower with a metal staircase around it. Climb up two flights of stairs, and jump inside the window. The Spaceship Part is on the floor inside this room.

There are a total of 50 Stunt Jumps in GTA V, and completing all of them will earn you Show Off , whilst only completing 25 of them is required for 100% game completion.

It is best to do the Stunt Jumps while playing as Franklin. You can trigger his special ability by pressing and simultaneously to slow down time while driving, which will come in very handy for lots of these stunts. The best vehicle for these Stunt Jumps is the Pegassi Bati 801 motorbike which can be bought from the vehicle dealership on your mobile phone for $10,000, whilst any of the fast sports cars found in the Vinewood area will usually suffice. If you find yourself stuck at a jump, use the same type of vehicle that is shown in the video.

You must always land in a specific area, or even a very specific spot to complete the Stunt Jump. If you drive too fast or too slow, you might miss the target area and the stunt will fail. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you make use of the quick save feature (accessed from your mobile phone) before you attempt every jump. After loading the save game you will be sitting on your vehicle again and still be at the exact same spot where you saved the game. That way you will never lose any progress if you die or destroy your vehicle, and it will save lots of time otherwise spent finding a new vehicle or lining up the jump again.

Locations

Clicking each number/location will take you to that specific Stunt Jump in the video.

Here is a collectible map for the Stunt Jumps. Please click on the image below to be taken to the full-sized map in 8192 x 8192 resolution! The numbers on the map match up with the video.

Here is a collectible map for the Under the Bridge challenges. Please click on the image below to be taken to the full-sized map in 8192 x 8192 resolution! The numbers on the map match up with the video. The first Under the Bridge is in the north-eastern part of the map.



There are a total of 50 Under the Bridge challenges in GTA V. You only need 25/50 to contribute towards 100% Completion, but you need all 50 to work towards the Close Shave achievement.

First off, get a Maverick helicopter from the South Los Santos Hospital helipad. If the Maverick doesn't spawn, go down to the street and up to the helipad again. You can complete all 50 Under the Bridges with it. Most of them are really quite easy, with just a few hard ones. You might also want to max out the "Flying" statistic of one of your characters first (Trevor will be nearly maxed when you gain control of him) by completing the Flight School, as it will greatly help with stability.

Again, in case you fail and hit the bridge of if your helicopter gets massively damaged, you can use the quick save and immediately reload the game. The helicopter will automatically be repaired when loading the save game. Also make use of quick save before attempting the harder Under the Bridge challenges.



Here is a collectible map for the Knife Flights. Please click on the image below to be taken to the full-sized map in 8192 x 8192 resolution! The numbers on the map match up with the video. All knife flights can be found in town. The first one is in the north-eastern part of the town.



There are a total of 15 Knife Flight challenges in GTA V. You only need 8/15 to contribute towards 100% Completion, but you need all 15 to complete the other half of the Close Shave achievement, along with 50 Under The Brudges as mentioned above.

First off, get a fighter jet from Ford Zancudo. You can complete all 15 Knife Flights with it. Alternatively, you can also try to get a stunt airplane, which land at the airport in the desert from time to time. To learn how Knife Flights work you should visit the Flight School at Los Santos Airport. Basically, you use the to tilt your plane on its side, and then use the rudders with and to maintain altitude and balance. Having a character with a maxed-out "Flying" statistic will give you more control over your aircraft, so Trevor is the easiest for this as he has almost maxed flying as soon as you get him.

If your jet gets massively damaged, you can use the quick save feature and immediately reload the game. It will automatically be repaired when loading the save game. Also make use of quick save before attempting the harder Knife Flight Stunts as they will almost certainly take a few tries.

There are a total of 50 Letter Scraps in GTA V. Finding all of them is needed for both 100% completion and A Mystery, Solved. The Letter Scraps can be collected at any time, even at the very beginning of the story. Unlike some other GTA V collectibles, there are no special requirements or side missions necessary to make them appear in the open world. There is also no specific character requirement for the Scraps, as you can pick them up with all 3 characters.

The Letter Scraps are small, glowing pieces of paper. Just like with the Spaceship Parts, some of them can only be reached with a helicopter. You can easily get one from the South Los Santos hospital helipad, or the Sandy Shores helipad.

The following spoiler shows what is required to complete this mission and earn the achievement:

Purchase any 5 properties

Purchasable properties are dotted around the map and are shown by a icon. They can be bought by approaching the “Purchase” sign outside the property as long as you have sufficient funds. The description is slightly misleading, as only income-generating properties count. Here is a complete list of properties (along with their price, who can buy them and their location) that count towards this requirement. Those highlighted in red are properties you need to purchase for other trophies:
  • Car Scrapyard ($275,000 - all characters) - El Burro Heights
  • Cinema Doppler ($10,000,000 - Michael) - Downtown Vinewood
  • Downtown Cab Co. ($200,000 - Franklin) - Downtown Los Santos. (All's Fare in Love and War)
  • Hookies ($600,000 - Michael or Trevor) - North Chumash
  • Los Santos Customs ($349,000 - Franklin) - Route 68, Grand Senora Desert
  • Los Santos Golf Club ($150,000,000 - all characters) - Richman
  • McKenzie Field Hangar ($150,000 - Trevor) - Grapeseed (TP Industries Arms Race)
  • Pitchers ($750,000 - all characters) - Downtown Vinewood
  • Smoke On The Water ($204,000 - Franklin) - Vespucci Beach
  • Sonar Collections Dock ($250,000 - all characters) - Paleto Bay (Waste Management)
  • Ten Cent Theater ($20,000,000 - Michael) - Textile City
  • Tequi-la-la ($2,000,000 - all characters) - West Vinewood
  • The Hen House ($80,000 - all characters) - Paleto Bay
  • Tivoli Cinema ($30,000,000 - Michael) - Morningwood
  • Towing Impound ($150,000 - Franklin) - Rancho
Purchase any vehicle from a website.

With any character, press and select “Internet” from your phone. Go to “Travel and Transport” and select any of the vehicle dealerships and purchase it to complete this requirement. The cheapest option is to choose the dealership at the bottom of the page, Southern San Andreas Super Autos, and then select the Pegassi Faggio for $5000.

Walk and play “fetch” with Chop

Chop is Franklin’s dog, so when controlling Franklin go to Franklin’s house and approach the bone icon on the map, which is Chop. Press next to him and then to take him on a walk. Whilst walking him, hold to access your weapon wheel and then choose the ball to equip it. Throw it with to play “fetch” with the ball, and when Chop finds it and brings it back, this requirement will be completed.

Complete a Booty Call

For this, you will need to fill the “like” meter of a dancer from the strip club to entice her into taking you back home with her. The quicker but extremely expensive way is to throw money at one when she is dancing on the rails, but the cheaper and more fun method is to get a girl to offer you a private dance for $40. Keep flirting with her with and then touch her by holding when the bouncer walks away from the door. It will probably take two whole dances to fill the meter completely using this method. Once the meter is maxed out, the dancer will ask if you want to go back to her place. Exit the strip club and go around to the back entrance. Drive her to her house and a short cutscene will play, after which you will have finished this requirement.

Not all dancers will offer you the opportunity to take them home, so try and find the one called "Sapphire", as she is confirmed as a possibility for a booty call.

Use a prostitute


Prostitutes can only be found in specific places. The easiest place is in the La Puerta district just north of the Los Santos International Airport below the 4-lane freeway. Simply go here at night time and look for a prostitute on the street. Make sure you are in a car and beep your horn by pressing the left stick, and when she gets into your car, drive to somewhere secluded. You can either get a $50, $70 or $100 service, any will count for the requirement to be fulfilled. (Thanks a lot to dcollins22 for the location and the cost of services).

Hold up a store

The stores required for this activity are specific, and there are only 19 of them in the game. This won't work in Ammu-Nation, barber or tattoo shops. You have to enter the shop and hold up the shopkeeper by aiming a weapon at them. Wait for him or her to empty the till and hand you cash, at which point this requirement will be complete. You don't have to exit the shop or evade the police.

The following stores are the only ones eligible for this requirement:
  • 24/7 Supermarket - Innocence Boulevard, Strawberry
  • 24/7 Supermarket - Niland Avenue, Sandy Shores
  • 24/7 Supermarket - Senora Freeway, Grand Senora Desert
  • 24/7 Supermarket - Route 68, Harmony
  • 24/7 Supermarket - Barbareno Road, Chumash
  • 24/7 Supermarket - Ineseno Road, Banham Canyon
  • 24/7 Supermarket - Clinton Avenue, Downtown Vinewood
  • 24/7 Supermarket - Palomino Freeway, Tatavian Mountains
  • Limited LTD Gasoline - Grapeseed Main Street
  • Limited LTD Gasoline - Tongva Drive, Banham Canyon
  • Limited LTD Gasoline - E Mirror Drive, Mirror Park
  • Limited LTD Gasoline - Lindsay Circus, Little Seoul
  • Limited LTD Gasoline - Grove Street, Davis
  • Robs Liquor - Great Ocean Highway, Banham Canyon
  • Rob’s Liquor - Prosperity Street, Morningwood
  • Rob’s Liquor - San Andreas Avenue, Vespucci Canals
  • Rob’s Liquor - El Rancho Boulevard, Murrieta Heights
  • Scoops Liquor Barn - Route 68, Grand Senora Desert
  • Supermarket - Senora Freeway, Mount Chiliad
One of these stores can be found behind the gas station across the street from Franklin's garage! This is in the "Grove Street / Davis" district of Los Santos.

Visit the cinema

There are three cinemas to visit on the map, designated by a icon. Simply visit and pay to watch a movie. You don't have to watch a whole movie, you can quit out at any time and the requirement is done.

4 Friend Activities (go to the cinema, play darts, go to the strip club and visit a bar)

Simply call up any of your friends with any character by pressing to access your phone and then selecting "Contacts". If they want to hang out, simply drive them to any of the four options above and participate in the activity. Once a friend enters your car, the symbols will automatically show up on your map. When playing as Franklin you can also call Lamar to hang out, in case Michael and Trevor are unavailable.

Here is a collectible map for the Nuclear Waste. Please click on the image below to be taken to the full-sized map in 8192 x 8192 resolution! The numbers on the map match up with the video. All of the nuclear waste is in the ocean. The first one is in the north-western part of the map, near the sonar docks.



These collectibles are not required for 100% Completion, but are required for the Waste Management achievement.

There are a total of 30 Nuclear Waste collectibles in GTA V. To collect them you need to buy the Sonar Collections Dock with any character. This property can be bought after completing the main story mission "The Merryweather Heist". The dock costs $250,000. You need to pick up the waste with the submarine, which always spawns at the dock.

Pretty much all of the Nuclear Waste is at the bottom of the ocean. Buying the docks will also give you a new app called "Trackify", which starts automatically when entering the submarine and provides a radar that points to the next collectible. The order in this video matches with the order of the Trackify app.

However, the app won't mark any of the waste on your in-game world map. Sometimes a piece of waste is miles away on a different part of the coast. The submarine is also very slow. If you collect everything in one run it will take about 2 hours.

On the bright side, getting all this stuff will help you uncover the ocean map further (required for San Andreas Sightseer) and you will get a lot of money ($32,000 per piece of Nuclear Waste you find and a $250,000 bonus after finding the last one).

Nice conversion job mate

We still have a few things to add on the PS3T side, once that's done we'll edit them in over here. Should be almost done in a couple of hours.

Probably one of the best & most detailed to the point guides I have seen by PowerPYX love your work as usual, I wasn't going to bother with any collectibles in this game tbh but with this should be easy lol.

I can only imagine how many hours it took you guys to find the collectibles record, edit then upload your work never mind the written guide and formatting it adding pics great work guys much appreciated 5*****

You have my word that nothing here is from the strategy guide.
Darth_Krid doesn't even have the official Brady Games guide. He watched my videos, took the screenshots and typed down the text. If anything sounds similar, then it's a coincidence and in most occasions there might just not be many ways to describe it otherwise.

I do have a strategy guide, but had nothing to do with the text. Besides, my strategy guide is in German anyway. We would never plagiarize any content whatsoever.

The maps that are used, aren't from the strategy guide either.
We also have our very own order of collectibles. The official guide does not list the ones that are closest together. We tried to put together the fastest route possible.

I wouldn't call it plagiarizing anyway. Your descriptions are very similar, and I apologise if I offended you. I wasn't saying that it's a bad thing to have followed the guide to come up with all of this (as most of it is still your work), as it would make sense given the small amount of time the game has been out. As I said, this is still incredible work.

As PowerPyx said, I have never bought a strategy guide in my life and I don't see why anyone would in the age of the Internet. I've heard it's riddled with mistakes anyway . The descriptions are probably similar as there's only really one way to describe half of them.

And I've easily spent 30-40 hours writing this and putting it all together. The screenshots for the Letter Parts alone took me 4 hours tonight. I've only done about 20 missions in the main game and about 10 hours as most of my time has been spent finding collectibles and doing miscellaneous stuff

I haven't encountered a single problem with it. Everything has been perfect in the guide so far. Which mistakes have they made?

No offense taken, no worries
I just wanted to make clear that this is our work, and by no means in any way based on another guide.

How about the faulty collectibles map for the stunt jumps?
They are missing some at the harbor, at the bottom right end of the map.

I have no idea, I haven't got it

Just what I've read on the PS3T forums. Missing collectibles, lack of mention of many of the activities etc.

Yup, activities are also missing from the brady games guide.
For example the rampage events that you need for "Red Mist" achievement.

The Rampages are in my guide... I have the Brady Games Limited Edition Guide and it isn't missing anything. Unless the German translation guide was very badly created.

EDIT: Page 268 - Rampages.
Page 397 - All 50 Stunt Jumps accounted for.

I think it's just your version of the guide that's wrong.

Anyway, enough about that guide. People should be commending you on your guide! Don't worry, you don't need to convince me, I'm already aware that this is your own work. Well done.

Then I'll have to take that back.
Maybe it's also because of the limited edition. I have the normal one. And you might be right, maybe they just messed up the translated versions of the guide. But it's all from the same company, so something like that should not happen.

And as far as the missing stunts go, #31 & #33 are not on the map. They are explained with text and screenshots on another page, but just not on the map. It's easy to miss them and since you cannot keep track of the ones you have found, you would have to do it all over again. But then again, this is based on the German brady games strategy guide. Maybe it really is different in the original English one.

Thank you
And I did by no means try to argue with you. I just hope it did not look like it. If so, I apologize.

You have also contributed lots of GTA V info and I am sure it will come in very handy, too!
