Grand Theft Auto IV Achievements

Half Million

55
Reach a balance of $500,000.

This will unlock as soon as you have $500,000 on hand. After a little while into the game, the missions become worth around $10,000 to $15,000 apiece. Also, when completing Brucie's email missions and Stevie's text message missions, the cars are worth more money if they are in good condition, so remember, as is mentioned in that section of the guide, Pay N' Spray your car before returning it to him. You can also perform odd jobs for people all over town, drive taxis, kill hookers, and other things that it just wouldn't be a GTA game without, to collect enough money to reach this lofty bankroll.

You will also receive $250,000 for completing the mission "Three Leaf Clover," as well as another $250,000 for the deal/revenge mission, so those two missions alone will net you the achievement.

**Can be done after completing story mode**

Another easy thing to do is, after doing Stevie's missions, just steal a bunch of cars right outside of his shop. Again, better condition means more money, and if you steal the cars right outside the door, there's little room for you to damage them before getting paid.

The easyest way to do this is if you have GTA IV: TBoGeT go to the cage mathers
and bet on some people. The Guy with Mussels on the back of his t-SHIRT has
only lost twice for me. I BET 250,000 on him lol and he won of cause. And the
guys with the pirate skull on back of his shirts always win but one time he
lost. now i have 5 million and counting and prob lost 2 million (haha lol)
This is a good way to win this Achievmente

Can this be done on the Ballad of Gay Tony or Lost and Damned disc?

Just to confirm, this can be done, and is very easy on the ballad of gay tony. Save your game and then bet all your money in cage fighting. If you lose then load the game and try again.

I got this by completing TBOGT's drug wars. When all are completed, usually a minimum of 10,000 each drug war, they pay 500,000 in total, as ling as you don't spend the money during missions you'll get this no prob.

Keep completing the missions and dont spend much, it comes naturally, you get 250k for the bank job mission. so thats instantly half way there.

i got up to 340k but then got down to 50k with random deaths... i great way to get 500k is to get cars for stevie. If u did not know, the cheat for health, armor and weapon batch 1 ALSO fixes the car ur in so if u use in next to the garage and drive in without crashing ill get it in "perfect condition"
buy the time u get all the cars, ill get around 450k doing this + that achievement

Okay I just want it to go on record, I had to reload a save after finding this out. On the revenge/deal mission, you only get the 250k if you go for the deal. Had to play both to find that out.

@12: If you do Revenge, you get your $250,000 after the final mission. Takes longer, but you still get it.
