NOTE: Make sure you save after you do things! If you take Brucie out to the bar, then quit, the game won't remember you took him out! Before you stop playing make sure to save so you don't get stuck at 98% scratching your head and cluttering up the forum with questions about your game glitching.


NOTE #2: I'm only one man, and I'm not a developer for Rockstar, so if you see any mistakes, send me a PM. Only send me a PM if you're positive that I'm missing something or am incorrect about something. Also feel free to send me a PM if there are any spelling mistakes in my printable guides.


Update Log:

5/24 - Created and linked printable spreadsheets for all applicable items so it'll be easier for you to keep track of what you need to do.

5/27 - Added prerequisites to make random characters show up.

5/28 - Redid the Friends section as people were still getting confused.

LOL. Thanks for the heads up! You can tell it was quickly made :p *goes to correct*


Also updated a few other things.


If anything's incorrect let me know, this information was compiled from a few different threads, so I'm going on what everyone else has said.

Thanks for breaking down the procedural mission percentages, razzleson. I wondered how much you got from each one. I'm at 91% and I'm about done with Stevie's cars which will give me 93. Then Brucie's exotic exports would give me 95. Then I'm off for pigeons and stunt jumps to complete it, so it seems I'm on track. Woot!

could be win pool,bowling or beat the high score on that arcade game :S


I've won each activity against everybody. I've also done them with Roman and Dwayne to kill time :p

QUB3D is done as well. I do have a hunch, I'll get back to you if it flies.
