Drive for 30 minutes without crashing is best done at the airport (continuous circles around the runway). The 4 hour helicopter ride can be done by rubber banding your controller. Apart from the time required, these 2 are easy awards to get. Congrats on your pending 30 platinums.

No problem. I was thinking about changing it again anyway and taking Birdies and 6-dart Checkout off of there. Reason being that there not only doesn't seem to be a way to host these activities to guarantee you'll do them solo/with a friend, but there also wasn't a "rematch/replay" feature that I noticed. So every time I was in a solo session and went to golf or darts, it automatically put me into a public session with either another person, or hosting for others to join. And when I finished, I got kicked out of the activity and had to start it over again. This will make it a huge pain in the ass to play these activities over and over again. Granted, a second person doesn't hinder your playing in either activity, but for darts, not only do you have to wait for them to go, but if you screw up you have to finish the game and then start a new one. Likewise for golf, trying to set it for one hole to play that same hole over and over again.

At least for Arm Wrestling and Tennis you can definitely rematch against your current partner, once you're with someone you're boosting wins with.

Solo:
1. 25 haircuts - requires at most $7500 if you buy the cheapest ones
2. 25 outfits - requires ~$2000 if you just buy tshirts, tank tops, etc
3. No claims bonus - boring/time-consuming, but just drive around the airport
4. Private dances - requires $1000, start dance, quit dance, start dance, etc.
5. Hold up Stores - required for the achievement anyway
6. Steal cars - GTA race, wanted level off, traffic on
7. Blow up cars - GTA race, wanted level off, traffic on, use rockets
8. Stayed on Target - use Terminal Velocity
9. 2000ft Wheelie - use the airport runway
10. 25 different races - switching between GTA and Standard also counts
11. 300ft jumps - Downtown Underground race with Super car
12. Every mod - just requires enough money and 50 race wins for chrome finish, which you'll likely get below from doing races for RP
13. 10 Survival waves - needed for achievement anyway
14. Point Break - play Up In the Clouds and hold back the whole time

2 players required:
15. Win race w/ custom vehicle - need to do 5 for achievement anyway
16. Win races - Criminal Records, one lap (be sure to bet on yourself)
17. Win GTA races - same as above, NOTE GTA races also count toward "races" above
18. Penetrate from Behind - Criminal records, 2 laps, pass leader on last lap (be sure to bet on yourself)
19. World Record - Criminal Records, 2 laps, split times - world record
20. Fastest Lap - Criminal Records, 2 laps, second lap should do it
21. Betting wins - Criminal Records, 1 lap, loser must bet min on himself
22. Most Gang Attack kills - partner should let you get all/most kills
23. Most Survival kills - play one wave and get all/most kills (needs 4 people)
24. Spinderella - use Cargobob in videoguide
25. Flippin Hell - same as above
26. Aces in Tennis - second player lets you score on every serve
27. 5 set tennis match - same as above (will take around 15 minutes per match)
28. Straight sets - same as above
29. Win in every game type - needed for Numero Uno achievement anyway
30. Road Rage - Criminal Records, 1 lap, GTA race, kill second player 3 times with rockets before winning
31. Ten-kill Streak - Morgue Deathmatch (smallest map I've played yet), kill each other 10 times in a row
32. Arm Wrestling Wins - very fast matches, win 25 in a row then switch
33. Granny (all targets same color) - target grid match, let each other flip all targets to one color, done in seconds

If anyone thinks any others are really quick/easy, let's add them to a list to go in the last reserved post on the first page.
Ok I took out the golf and darts ones since, like I mentioned in my post above, don't seem to be as easy to boost and replay with someone else or solo.

Solo:
1. 25 haircuts - requires at most $7500 if you buy the cheapest ones
2. 25 outfits - requires ~$2000 if you just buy tshirts, tank tops, etc

I've read through the 13 pages of this thread and can't find my answer so can anyone please tell me why some of these awards don't show up on the awards section of the stats page? Things like the 25 haircuts and snappy dresser etc?

I'm at 21 now and did 25 haircuts earlier and it didn't update to 22 but i'm hoping it will update next time I play. (Since I was at 19 yesterday and I did Mile High club and Unirider and they took about 12 hours to register)

It doesnīt ever show right away, you have to go away or go to singleplayer and then back to online, and it will be updated.
Atleast that is the way I have it, itīs not glitch like itīs not updating, you just have to get off online and get back and you will see it


Also I have a question - has anyone done the Hole in One? It is totally crazy, I almost always get close but never really done it, I have max strength and I already have gone from 1 to 25/25 birdies (and around 35 total tries) medal while trying for Hole in One, pretty good and getting the distances and stuff now but still canīt do it.

Thanks for the reply dude but you answered the wrong part. Maybe it's the way I worded it. I know the stats don't update straight away...

My question was, why don't some of the platinum awards for certain things show up at all. For example, if this thread didn't exist, I never would have known that there was a platinum award for getting 25 haircuts. Because I can't see it anywhere on the 'awards' section. Same for the Snappy Dresser (25 outfits)

There are multiple pages for some award categories.

For "Suped Up" do I need to buy everything in one visit and do I need chrome for the secondary colour aswell? I purchased something for every part minus the explosives but it was over multiple visits to LS Customs.

Before the patch if you were high enough level to "own" a gun and you picked it up, you kept it. Keeping it means "bought" to the game.

First go into Awards (press A), then go to the category you want, General in this case, then press A again to go to the awards themselves. Now you can scroll through each award instead of just viewing the screen of page 1.

Hopefully this makes sense.

Actually I was thinking that it'd also be very beneficial to people to include along with that list an efficient grouping of awards, to know which ones to do at once, instead of doing a couple awards and then seeing another one and thinking "damn, I should have done this one back when I was doing that one!"

So here's what I was thinking: (note that I didn't include all of the awards on my list, only the ones that can be grouped with others to do at the same time)

1. Solo Freeroam

25 haircuts
25 outfits
every mod
private dances
hold up 20 stores
no claims bonus

Simply acquire these at your leisure in freeroam, when you have enough money.

2. Solo Race - Downtown Underground - GTA Race - Super Cars - One Lap - Traffic On - Wanted Level Off

300ft Jumps
Blow Up Cars
Steal Cars

Host this job solo, use rockets to blow up traffic cars during your races, and get the boost before the stunt jump. Each race will get you one of the 25 jumps, and a handful of blown up cars. When you're done with the 25 jumps, use respawning rockets to blow up cars and farm them. You can also get out of your car to steal cars stopped at traffic lights and don't have to worry about wanted level for either.

3. 2-Player Race - Criminal Records - GTA Race - Custom On - 2 Laps - Wanted Level Off - Traffic Off - Split Times Personal

Race Wins
GTA Race Wins
Win a Race with a Custom vehicle
Road Rage
Penetrate From Behind
Betting Wins
World Record
Fastest Lap

Host this job with a friend and set it to two laps. Alternate wins. GTA Race wins also count toward the Race Wins, so do both together. The winner will bet max on himself, the loser with bet min on himself. The winner will be in second place after the first lap, then pass the loser on the second. Also each person will take one turn using rockets to blow up the opponent 3 times before you win to unlock Road Rage. Do this until Penetrate from behind is complete. From then on, the winner will win both laps. Your second lap should be much faster than the first, and will get you Fastest Lap and most likely World Record if you keep at it. You should be close to platinum on betting wins by the time you get your 50 race wins. When you finish, you should have earned plenty of money to use for the medals in section 1 above.

4. 2-Player Tennis - 5 Sets

25 Aces in Tennis
Win a 5 set match
Win with straight sets

Host the match and have one player win every game and every set. This will take 15 minutes per 5-set match. You need to win 3 sets, and 6 games per set. The winner will get an ace on every serve. When the loser is serving, return the serve and score a point there. You'll have to play through two 5-set matches, but you'll both easily get your 25 aces by the time you're done, and you'll both have all three platinums.

5. 2-Player Deathmatch - Morgue - Max Time Limit - Max Kill Limit

500 Headshots
500 Pistol Kills
3-For-1
Streaker
Deathmatch Kills
Killstreaker
Equalizer
Tattoo every body part

These aren't on my list, but if you wanted to boost medals in deathmatch, this is how I would set it up: 2 players, smallest map possible. Every kill should be a pistol headshot. First one player will kill the other 10 tens, then switch and repeat. Now take turns killing each other 3 times in a row, then switching. Three kills in a row gives you 3-to-1, and killing someone after they killed you three times gives you Equalizer. By the time you reach 500 headshots/pistol kills, you'll have gotten the other 5 platinums. I included Tattoo every body part because 500 headshots is required to unlock the head tattoo, which then allows you to get this easy (yet expensive) platinum medal. Naturally, instead of pistol kills, you can do it with whichever weapon type you want, but stick with one for 500 kills and 500 headshots.

That's a relatively simple 28 platinums right there. That's not including other easy ones on my list that can be done solo or quickly boosted with another person.

Hi, thanks for your work ...

I do have a question regarding Tennis ...
Win with straight sets - Does this mean you can't lose a set or do you have to win three sets in a 5 set match without losing a point (e.g. 6:0) ?
Because from my understanding you have to win a match without losing a set ... At least that is what the description says ...
If so, you can't win this award while doing the 5-set and win award ...
Is somebody here who could tell me if this is true?

Thanks in advance ...

I did not do the straight sets or 5 set tennis awards, but I'm almost 100% certain your understanding is correct. For one person to get these 2 awards, you'd have to play a total of 8 sets (3 + 5). Assuming that your partner needs the awards as well, that's a total of 16 sets required ... a pretty time consuming process.



My recommendations ...


Victory
  1. The Champion - win races [50] --> takes awhile, but is required to fully mod your cars
  2. In A Class Of Your Own - win a race in a custom vehicle [1] --> easy
  3. Penetrate From Behind - move from last to race winner in any race mode [20] --> should occur naturally when working on your 50 race wins
  4. The Record Holder - hold a world record in a Rockstar race [1] --> a mysterious glitch should give this too you if you do enough races
  5. Dust Maker - achieve the fastest lap in a race [25] --> should occur naturally when working on the 50 race wins
  6. Every Race - win every type of race mode at least once [1] --> relatively easy
  7. Survivor - finish waves in survival [10] --> required for an achievement

Because from my understanding you have to win a match without losing a set ... At least that is what the description says ...
If so, you can't win this award while doing the 5-set and win award ...
Is somebody here who could tell me if this is true?

Thanks in advance ...
I wasn't paying attention and accidentally let my partner score a point here and there, but he didn't win any games. I still got the Straight Sets award. Basically you must win the match without letting your opponent get a single game. (Not letting them get a single point would be nigh impossible)

Don't lose a set. If you win a 5 set match without your opponent winning a set you'll get both awards, not sure why you think otherwise. The conditions would be met for both.

Straight sets in a 5 set match is winning the first 3 sets. You can win 6-0, 6-0, 6-0, or 6-5, 6-5, 6-5.

Its basically best 3 out of 5 sets, you win the first 3 and its game over since they cant win more than 2 sets to beat you. If you ace every serve, and you 'return ace' every of their serves, it takes about 30 minutes per person.

Thanks, for the clarification. Based on the wording, I thought winning a 5 set match meant having to win a match that actually went to 5 sets. The description said "Endurance is required for this epic battle. Win a 5 set match.". IMO, the description is quite misleading.

You're right, it's a bit misleading, at least for people who don't play Tennis ...
I do play Tennis (OK, I did when I was younger ...), and so I know that there is no way to win 5 sets in a row because if a player scores his third set the match is over. A 5 set match is only possible when every player has won 2 sets and the the fifth set will decide who wins ...

So, it's not possible to get the 5-set-match award and the Win-with-straight-sets award at the same time ...
Like StarDreamer99 said: you'd have to play a total of 8 sets for both awards ...

YES YOU CAN.

Win a 5 set match. To win that, win 3 sets.
Win in straight sets. In a 1 set match, win 1 set. In a 3 set match, win 2 sets, In a 5 set match, win 3 sets.
Get both at once. Play a 5 set match, win 3 sets (and lose 0 sets)

Only 3 sets are required.

You can even get the ACE award. Get 3 platinums in one game. Play a 5 set match, win 3 sets, lose 0 sets, every serve is an ace.

You aren't playing five sets if you win three in a row, though.

Also, I can guarantee winning 1 set to win the game will not get you the straight sets award.

You don't need to play 5 sets though. You just need to win a 5 set match. Which you would do if you won the first 3 in a row.

I just got my Decorated cheevo after getting a 10 kill streak in a deathmatch for my 30th platinum. Which i'm happy about after reading that some of you did not get it from a 'game mode related' award.

I just have Numero Uno left and then i'm done!

If anyone needs any help at all with any achievements including boosting or needs mugging etc then just shoot me a FR.

Precisely. 5 sets is the longest the match can go, but I can end sooner. Somewhat poor example but baseball games don't end at exactly 9 innings (lets ignore extra innings in this example). If the home team is winning after the top of the 9th ends, the game is over. The home team doesnt need to bat in the bottom of the 9th, they cant be beaten.

In a 5 set match you cant win 5 sets. You can only win 3. Win the first 3, and you dont have to play a 4th or 5th set.

It says "win a 5 set match." To do that, win 3 sets. If you had to win 5 sets in a match, you would have to play a 9 set match. Not possible.

Play a 5 set match, win the first 3 sets. You get the 5 set match platinum.
If you win those first 3 sets, you get the straight sets platinum too.
If you serve all aces (4 per game, 3 games per set, 3 sets) thats 36 aces. I think you need 25 for platinum, and you get that as well.
