Introduction:
Grand Theft Auto V makes a return on eighth-generation consoles. It’s prettier, it’s bigger, and it’s a whole lot crazier. Set in the state of San Andreas, GTA V follows the story of three strangers – Franklin, Michael, and Trevor - as they form a bond through various criminal activities in the pursuit of man’s greatest goal: wealth. The game is presented in an open world format, which can be freely explored at your own pace right from the game’s inception. This means that unlike previous titles, the entirety of San Andreas (Los Santos and Blaine County) is open from the get-go, so you can choose to explore the world before taking on the Single Player missions, side activities, and everything else San Andreas has to offer. Achievement wise, your time will be split between the Single Player portion of the game and the Multiplayer portion of the game: GTA Online. Overall, you’ll need to dedicate ??? hours towards GTA V in order to see the game complete. Although some may pin the phrase “lazy port” to this title, the new features adds to Grand Theft Auto V, such as the brand new first-person perspective, will create an immersive experience for returning players. Be prepared for a thrilling adventure in GTA V.

Story:
Like any open-world Single Player title there is no suggested or recommend order in how you should go about your playthrough. Keep in mind however, that you will need to complete the main storyline, earn a Gold Medal in a few hobbies and pastimes, uncover the entire map, and obtain a total of 70 Gold Medals between the many story missions and side missions. Since there is so much to do in the world, you might feel overwhelmed at times. To avoid the stress, play at a comfortable pace and make sure to spread out your play time between all three characters and all the different missions and activities. Also, take note that during the story missions, you will be given the option to skip the entirety of a mission if you die more than five times. Do NOT skip the mission at this point or else the story-related achievement(s) tied to that mission will not unlock.

GTA Online:
Grand Theft Auto Online offers an open world experience to be shared with other gamers. It extracts numerous elements from the Single Player, most notably the countless activities and missions to participate in, while blending Online components such as matchmaking and shared free roam (of which has been increased to thirty players). There are several ways to launch the Online. When booting the game up, you can follow the on-screen button prompt in the loading screen to join an Online lobby immediately. If you prefer to host your own lobby, allow the Single Player to load. From here, pause your game and scroll over to the "Online" tab. Simple click "Play GTA Online" and you can now choose to host a Closed Crew Session, Closed Friends Session, Solo Session, or Public Session.

While working your way towards Rank 100 or earning at least 30 Platinum Awards, you will want to make sure to rob all 20 stores around San Andreas, participate in all ten activities, and obtain first place in all fifteen competitive game modes the Online has to offer. There are a few achievements that are tied directly to these game modes, such as winning a Rally Race as a Co-Driver, clearing all ten waves in Survival Mode and completing a Gang Attack without dying. Furthermore, some achievements are Rank specific, such as surviving a bounty for a full day, buying real estate, calling in gang backup, and killing a thief who mugged you. Overall, there are no missable achievements in this portion of the game, so sit back, have fun and "enjoy your stay" on GTA Online.

GTA Online Character Transfer:
In order to transfer your GTA Online character and all their progress from the Xbox 360 to the Xbox One version of the game, you will first need to complete the Prologue mission and then Franklin’s first two missions. After arriving at Franklin’s house, go ahead and save your game. When you awake, pause your game and scroll over to the “Online” tab in the Pause Menu, and then click “Character Transfer.” This will automatically boot up the Rockstar Policy page. Accept the terms and conditions and then click “Character Transfer” once more in the “Online” tab. After this, you will now be able to select which character you desire to transfer over though take note you can only perform this character transfer once. After selecting your desired character, you will be returned to the Single Player and will be required to wait in returning to GTA Online until the transfer has been successfully completed.

After five or ten minutes have passed, try entering GTA Online by firing it up through the Pause Menu. When you enter GTA Online and find yourself in the character selection screen, any Multiplayer achievements that you had originally obtained with your character on the Xbox 360 will begin to automatically unlock. Please take note that they may not all unlock at once. If this occurs, simply choose your character (you have the option to choose and fully re-customize your transferred character) and when your finished at the police station, a few of the remaining achievements will unlock upon entering your apartment. As a final note, though odd, the Single Player achievements for completing all the stunt jumps, full modifying a weapon, and fully modifying a vehicle will also unlock during this time.

Miscellaneous:
There are several achievements that are not directly tied to the story and side missions. Tasks such as surviving three minutes on a 3-Star chase, fully modifying both a weapon and vehicle, and making profit in the stock market are just the premise of these miscellaneous achievements. There are also four achievements that can only be obtained while playing as Trevor, and one achievement that can only be completed as Michael. As a note of importance, be sure to get these done early on in your playthrough. You will also need to take into consideration that there are 245 collectibles in this game in the form of space ship parts (50), letter scraps (50), toxic waste (30), stunt jumps (50) and aerial challenges (65).

WARNING (POTENTIAL SPOILER): Towards the very end of the game, Devin will arrive at Franklin's house and inform him on his next job. CHOOSE OPTION "C" or else you can miss the following achievements if you haven't already obtained them: "TP Industries Arms Race", "Red Mist", "Kifflom!", "Three Man Army", "Altruist Acolyte", and "Wanted: Alive or Alive".

Mop Up:
If you have missed any Single Player or Online achievements during your time on Grand Theft Auto V, hop back into either portion of the game for a clean up of whatever it is you still need to work on. Chances are you will need to hunt down some more collectibles, work on your Gold Medals for Single Player, grind out Platinum Awards for GTA Online, or even continue your journey towards Rank 100. At any rate, make sure you snag the remainder of these achievements before putting this game away.

Heists Update DLC
(Full G&RM Here)

Introduction to Heists:
Welcome back to Los Santos, you crazy hooligans. In GTA V’s latest Heist Update, five brand new cooperative missions have been added to the online portion of the game alongside new vehicles, weapons, gameplay mechanics and more. Set out to be a completely exhilarating cooperative experience, the new missions allow players to pull off a tense multi-part heists, raids, and robberies. In order to pull of these heists, you will need to be at least a Level 12 and own a high-end apartment before Lester calls you about the first heist. This update brings with it a total of nine new achievements, some of which will see players completing all the individual heists, as well as performing other team-based tasks throughout the various missions. Depending on your current amount of money, this update will take anywhere from twenty-five or more hours to complete. 

Online Heists:
The five heists included in this update include “The Fleeca Job,” “The Prison Break,” “The Humane Labs Raid,” “Series A Funding,” and “The Pacific Standard Job.” There are three achievements related to completing these heists, specifically "Parole Day" completing The Prison Break, "Dead Presidents" for completing both The Fleeca Job and The Pacific Standard Job, and In the "In The Name of Science" for completing The Humane Labs Raid and Series A Funding. Each of these heists consists of multiple Setup missions as well as a Finale and competing your first Setup mission will unlock Be Prepared. 

As a heist leader (lobby host), you will need to invest your money in a Setup mission and also split the final cut of a Finale evenly across four players for "Shot Called" and "Four Way." Take note players will also have to complete a Finale without taking damage in order to obtain "Can’t Touch This," however this is easily achievement during The Fleeca Job finale without much effort. 

As for the last two achievements, "Live a Little" requires players to spend $8 million on the new vehicles included in the Heist Update, though there is a workout for this achievement which only requires players to have $3.4 million in the bank. Lastly, "Mastermind" will unlock once 25 platinum medals have been obtained. These medals are rewarded to players post-mission based on their kills, accuracy, headshots, and general contribution towards completing the main objective of a mission. 

Mop Up for Heists:
There isn’t necessarily a “mop up” for these achievements, but take note that players can always grind out their platinum medals on The Fleeca Job with another player in order to finish up "Mastermind". Also, if your short on cash and still need to reach that $3.4 million for "Live a Little," it’s wise to replay the heists as many times as necessary with loyal partners. If the party agrees to it, the player who is in need of the most money can be given 100% of the finale cut in order to make rapid progress towards that monetary goal. 

Conclusion to Heists:
All in all, the Heist Update brings five enjoyable cooperative missions to GTA Online with nine unique achievements. Rockstar’s online servers may be a little messy at times, but once you’re in a mission with a group of players, be it a Heist Setup or Heist Finale, the fun to be had is priceless. It may take up to twenty-five hours or more to obtain all nine achievements, coupled with some mindless grinding for platinum medals and money, but it’s sure to be a pleasant experience in exploring the new content and replaying the epic heists.

Freemode Events DLC

Introduction to Freemode Events:
Welcome to the Freemode Events DLC for Grand Theft Auto V. The DLC finally brings the PC version of Rockstar Editor & Director Mode to consoles as well as several freeroam events for GTA Online, although every achievement in the DLC is earned within the Story mode. 

Rockstar Editor:
There are 2 achievements for 40 related to exporting videos within the Rockstar Editor (Export 1 & 10 total videos) where the same video can be used to export over multiple times. 

Director Mode:
There are 7 achievements for 160 related to the Director Mode within Rockstar Editor. The majority of these achievements will require you to enter the mode as a specific character. You will ultimately need to unlock all Story & Special characters by progressing through the story mode. If you already have these characters unlocked prior to starting this DLC, you can play as the characters right from the start.

Animals:
The only collectable related achievement in the game worth 50 will require you to collect all the Peyote Plants from the base game to unlock all the animal characters. If you have already collected the plants prior to starting this DLC, all animals will already be unlocked for you. 

Conclusion to Freemode Events:
Depending on your progress on the game when starting this DLC, it can take from a couple hours to a whole playthrough of the story mode to complete the DLC due to unlocking the characters. Overall there are no difficulty based, multiplayer, or time consuming achievements involved.

The Doomsday Heist DLC

Introduction:
GTA V’s latest online update, The Doomsday Heist, focuses on a storyline where your protagonist is called upon to save Los Santos and the entire country from impending doom. In order to initiate this massive heist, though, you will need to own a Facility and be a CEO, VIP, or Motorcycle Club President. This update brings with it a total of eight new achievements. Four of these achievements will come naturally for completing The Doomsday Heist; however, the remaining batch involve more difficulty and expensive one-off challenges and feats. Depending on your current amount of money, this update will take anywhere from twenty or more hours to complete.

Abbreviated Walkthrough:
The Doomsday Heist is split across three massive Acts. Each Act involves a certain amount of Setup missions, and each of those Setup missions involves a prerequisite Prep mission. Prep missions involve smuggling certain assets while in a Public Freeroam lobby. Setups and Finales, however, should be familiar in design and can be done in Private lobbies. Investing your cash upfront to initiate the heist will unlock "Getting Started." Please refer to the guide below for more information, as there are two prerequisites before starting the heist.

Then, from there, completing Act I will unlock "The Data Breaches," completing Act II will unlock "The Bogdan Problem," and completing Act III will unlock "The Doomsday Scenario." You will also unlock "A World Worth Saving" for having completed the entirety of The Doomsday Heist.

In order to unlock "Orbital Obliteration," you will need to spend a minimum of $1.4 million to kill another player with the new Orbital Cannon. Finally, there's "Elitist" and "Masterminds;" the former is earned for completing all of the Elite Challenges in each Act's Finale and the latter is earned for completing all three Criminal Mastermind challenges. Please refer to the guide below for specific information regarding these two achievements and take note that they are very difficult and require high levels of patience, skill, and coordination.

A step-by-step guide/walkthrough of this entire DLC, courtesy of user Neg96, can be found HERE. It is extremely detailed, and should provide all of the information needed to finish this heist.

Conclusion:
The Doomsday Heist is ridiculous, yet very enjoyable. Five of the eight achievements in this add-on are manageable; however, the Orbital Cannon is very expensive to purchase and use, and the Elite Challenges and Criminal Mastermind challenges require fine skill and multiple playthroughs of practice. It'll likely take you more than twenty hours to complete this add-on, but in the end, it'll be worth the blood, sweat, and tears.

Overall Conclusion:
On Xbox One, Grand Theft Auto V is an enjoyable experience for newcomers and returning players alike. With a host of new features in both the Single Player and Online components of the game, there are more than enough reasons in taking a plunge and experiencing the chaos of Los Santos this holiday. A vividly realized open-world, an exuberant cast of leading characters, and polished action gameplay are just the first of many reasons why Grand Theft Auto V is a pleasure to play. The achievement list may host its fair share of tedious tasks, such as collectible hunting and online grinding for awards and ranks, however you’ll soon come to realize the entertainment that surrounds such mindless tasks. Just like the first time around, Grand Theft Auto V on Xbox One is completely worth your time.

    Be sure to link your gamertag to Rockstar's Social Club website in order to keep track of your progress towards this achievement!

  • Explore all of Los Santos and Blaine County.

    The entire island of San Andreas is open from the start; however, the world will be hidden on your map by dark clouds of fog until you have explored that general area. Once you have explored a certain section of the map, the fog will clear up and you can see the map as normal.

    Even though most of the map will be uncovered through natural story progression, the best way to uncover the map quickly would be to use a plane or helicopter. Unlike cars, aircraft will uncover the world much faster as opposed to maneuvering through every street, mountain pass and body of water. Once you have cleared up about 98% of the island and the surrounding bodies of water along the shoreline, the achievement will unlock.

  • Purchase Downtown Cab Co. and complete a private fare.

    You will eventually come to a point in the main storyline where you can begin to purchase property around the city of Los Santos. Owning a piece of property not only allows you to use their services for free, but you will also net a substantial weekly income from the property as well.

    For this achievement, you will want to purchase the Downtown Cab Company which is located on Tangerine Street in East Vinewood. This will set you back $200,000 and can only be bought as Franklin. Now wait until the manager, Raul, calls you. When he does, he will have a private fare ready. Accept this job offer immediately and the letter "P" will appear on the world map. Pick up the customer at the "P" icon and drive them to their destination. When you get there, they might need help with a small mission before paying you. At other times, they will simply get out of the car and pay you right away. Once you are paid and the customer leaves the area, the achievement will unlock.

  • Purchase McKenzie Field Hangar and win the arms race.

    While playing as Trevor, you will need to complete the two story missions "Mr. Philips" and "Nervous Ron" before you can buy properties around San Andreas. Upon completing the latter mission, the game will inform you about property buying. At this time, purchase the McKenzie Field Hanger for $150,000 since you will have just enough cash and the mission ends right outside the hanger.

    Once purchased, you can begin undertaking trafficking missions for Oscar, who you meet after making the purchase. Arms Trafficking missions are performed in the Cuban 800 airplane parked in the hanger and in the BF Dune Buggy parked outside the hanger. Enter either vehicle in order to receive instructions from Oscar. After completing a mission, you will either need to travel some distance and return in order for the next mission to be available, or quick save and reload your save file. All in all, there are five of each trafficking missions (air and ground) and the achievement will unlock once all ten are completed.

  • Attain a gold medal in all applicable hobbies and pastimes.

    In GTA V, there are over 60 hobbies and pastimes available around San Andreas. Some of these include Taxi Missions, Races, Parachuting, Triathlons, Sports and more.

    For this achievement, you only have to worry about obtaining ONE Gold Medal in the following activities:

    • Flight School
    • Off-Road Race
    • Sea Race
    • Street Race
    • Shooting Range
    • Triathlon

    For the Triathlons, Sea Races and Off-Road Races, you only need to get 1st place to obtain a Gold Medal. For the Flight School and Shooting Range, you only have to worry about getting a Gold Medal in one of the many challenges available. This achievement can be done with any character, so don't worry about keeping track of who does what.

  • Collect and return all spaceship parts.

     

    While playing as Franklin, you will eventually encounter a mission called, “Far Out One”, which will be designated on your map by a green question mark icon. This mission will direct you to a man named Omega in east Sandy Shore. He will recount a ridiculous tale about an alien ship that crashed in San Andreas and it is up to you to recover all 50 space ship parts for him.

    Although this is a Franklin-only mission, you can still recover the ship parts while playing as Michael and Trevor. Each collectible will have a bright gold aura and emit a small humming sound when you are near them. Keep in mind that some parts can only be reached with a helicopter, but you can easily get one from the Los Santos Hospital helipad. If you don't know where that is, jump to 10:39 in the video below and you will see its location. Once you have collected all 50 parts, return to Omega and the achievement, plus a very unique vehicle, will be yours.

    Refer to "A Mystery, Solved" for a great tip on how to collect the space ship parts quicker, using the taxis in the game, if you do not always have a helicopter.

  • Solve the mystery of Leonora Johnson.

     

    There are 50 hidden Letter Scraps scattered all over San Andreas and they can be picked up with any character at any time during the game. These letters are small, glowing pieces of paper that were left behind by a serial killer in San Andreas. Like the space ship parts, some of these scraps can only be reached with a helicopter.

    After finding all 50 scraps, proceed to the newly discovered green question mark icon in Rockford Hills while playing as Franklin. There, you will meet Leonora Johnson's killer, Peter Dreyfuss. After a short cutscene, it is up to you in deciding Dreyfuss's fate. Regardless of what you do to the man, the achievement will unlock after your decision is made.

    It is recommended to work on both set of collectibles after you have purchased the Downtown Cab Company as Franklin. Once you own the company, taxi rides will be free. If you are following the videos, you can set a waypoint to the next collectible and fast travel to your destination by using the taxi cab. Make sure to whistle when you get out of the cab so it stays in place while you run forward to grab the collectible.

  • Purchase the old dock and collect all nuclear waste.

    Before you can begin collecting the 30 Nuclear Waste collectibles, you will need to buy the Sonar Collections Dock - located in Blaine County - for $250,000. This property can be purchased by any of the three characters and will only be available after completing the "The Merryweather Heist" story mission.

    In order to pick up the nuclear waste, which is scattered around the ocean floor, you need to use the yellow submarine that always spawns at the docks of this property. Buying the docks will also give you a new app called "Trackify," which will automatically turn on when entering the submarine as it provides a sonar radar that points to the nearest collectible. The order of collectibles in the video below matches with the order of the Trackify app. The app will not mark any of the waste on your in-game world map and sometimes, a piece of waste is extremely far away on a different part of the coast; so be sure to follow the video to a tee. The submarine is also VERY slow, so if you're trying to collect all the nuclear waste in one run, it will take just around two hours.

    Fortunately, collecting all the nuclear waste will help uncover the ocean on your map if it is not already cleared up. In addition to this, you will earn $23,000 per piece of nuclear waste you find if you collect them with the character who purchased the Docks, and an additional $250,000 bonus after finding the last piece of waste.

  • Complete all Rampages.

    Rampages are a form of Strangers and Freaks missions that are only available when playing as Trevor. Like all Strangers and Freaks missions, the first Rampage will appear as an orange question mark on your map. After that, their icon changes to an Orange Skull but they will not appear on the map until the mission "Friends Reunited" is completed. The goal of these missions is to defeat the required number of enemies in the time allotted. You do not incur a Wanted Level during the challenges which makes them incredibly enjoyable.

    Overall, there are five different Rampages to complete. The first Rampage will be available after completing the “Trevor Philips Industries” story mission. Below, you can check out where each Rampage is located.

    • Rampage 1 – Sandy Shores on Marina Drive
    • Rampage 2 – Corner of Macdonald Street and Jamestown Street in Rancho, Los Santos
    • Rampage 3 – In an alley on Forum Drive in Chamberlin Hills, Los Santos
    • Rampage 4 – Fort Zancudo Approach in Great Chaperral
    • Rampage 5 – Mirror Park, Los Santos

    Upon completing all five Rampages, the achievement will unlock.

  • Complete all Stunt Jumps.

    Within the world of San Andreas, you will come across a total of 50 stunt jumps that you will need to complete for this achievement. Having the right vehicle for each jump is extremely significant. Usually, a fast sports car or motorbike is key for nailing the jumps at top speed; however, certain jumps are more restrictive with their “landing zone” so you may need a slower vehicle. With that said, knowing where to land each Stunt Jump is half the battle. You can land the jump as much as you’d like, but if you do not land in the desired location, it will not count.

    The Stunt Jumps are scattered throughout the city Los Santos and valleys of Blaine County. Keep in mind that Franklin is the character of choice for these Stunt Jumps, as his special ability can help make a last second adjustment in mid air or as you are going to launch off the ramp of a jump.

    It is recommended to use your in-game cellphone to quick save before every Stunt Jump. Using this method is great for ensuring that you will never lose any progress if you die or destroy your vehicle. If you fail a jump, just reload your save file and you will be sitting in your vehicle right in front of the Stunt Jump you just saved your progress at. This is great for saving time instead of having to find a new vehicle or line up the jump again. Once all 50 stunt jump have been successfully completed, the achievement will unlock.

    NOTE: This achievement can actually be earned in GTA Online by exploiting the same stunt jump over and over again during the "Downtown Underground" street race. This method works great for those who do not wish to scope out all fifty unique stunt jumps across Los Santos and Blaine County, thus reducing the time spent on trial and error runs for the much harder stunt jumps in the game. For more information on how this can be done, please visit THIS POST where a video guide - which is now 100% confirmed - shows the method in grinding this achievement out Online.

  • Complete your path to enlightenment... or not.

    This achievement can only be obtained while playing as Michael and involves a very long process of tedious missions and monetary donations. To begin, pull up your in-game cellphone and access the internet. Type in "Epsilon" in the search bar, click on the first website that comes up, and complete the Epsilon Program Identity Evaluation on the homepage. As soon as you quit out of the internet, there should be a new Strangers and Freaks mission on your map in Raton Canyon. Approach the red truck there and watch the cutscene that ensues. Following this cutscene, Michael will receive an email informing him to donate $500 to the Epsilon website in order to unlock the next mission.

    After making the donation and a few in-game days have passed, head to the next Epsilon icon on your map near the corner of Clinton Avenue and Alta Street in Downtown Vinewood. Complete this mission and you will need to donate another $5,000 through their website. During the next mission, you be required to deliver five vehicles to the Epsilon Garage in Vinewood Hills. You will be sent a photo of each vehicle to your cellphone in order to help track them down. If you have a lot of spare cash, access the internet on your cellphone and open the "Travel and Transport" menu. Go to the Southern San Andreas Super Autos website and buy the following vehicles:

    • Enus Super Diamond - $250,000
    • Pegassi Vacca - $240,000
    • Benefactor Surano - $99,000

    These purchased cars will be sent directly to Michael's garage. If you do not have the cash for these three vehicles, all five can be found throughout the city of Los Santos (if you need further guidance, the video below shows these vehicle locations starting at 2:31):

    • The Pegassi Vacca can be found parked on Wild Oats Drive in front of a house in Vinewood Hills
    • The Benefactor Surano is sitting in a parking lot in the cul-de-sac of the Lake Vinewood Estates
    • The Declasse Tornado can be found in a parking lot at the "Domestic - Japanese - European" Garage in Hawick (2 blocks East of Ammu-Nation gun shop 2/9 on map legend)
    • The Enus Super Diamond is parked behind Leopold's on Dorset Drive in Rockford Hills (2 blocks South of Ponsonbys clothing store 1/3 on the map legend)
    • The Double-T Motorcycle is parked in one of the spaces next to the Lifeinvader offices on Boulevard Del Perro.

    After delivering all five vehicles to the Epsilon Garage, you will need to complete another short mission. After this, you will need to make two different $5,000 donations to the website for the next mission to appear, which tasks you with buying the Epsilon Robes from their website for $25,000. You must now wear the robes for 10 straight days, so return to Michael's house and simply sleep for 10 days straight in order to speed this up. Once this task has been completed, you will receive a text from Jimmy Boston asking you to go Fort Zancudo; complete the next mission there. Following this, proceed to the next Epsilon icon when it appears on your map and make sure you are still wearing the Robes. Talk to the crew there and they will inform you that you need to wander 5 miles in the desert. Distance covered is tracked onscreen above your radar after every 0.1 mile.

    As a general tip, try wrapping a rubber band around the controller's thumbsticks while walking in the desert. This will cause Michael to walk in a circle so that you do not have to sit there during the mission. Just be careful not to wonder outside the desert of the tracker will reset.

    After completing this dreadful task, make sure you have $50,000 on hand and head over to the Epsilon Center in West Vinewood when the mission appears. Complete this final mission in any way you'd like (to obtain the Gold Medal for this mission, you'll want to drive to the drop off point, kill the helicopter crew, security guards and back up security, and then drive off with the money) and the achievement is finally yours!

  • Survive 3 minutes on at least a 3 star Wanted Level with all three characters together off mission.

    The earliest you can attempt this achievement is after the "Friends Reunited" story mission, as this is when all three characters will be available to use within the game. Open up your cellphone, go to "Contacts" and call either one of your friends with a request to hangout. Sometimes they may not always be available to hangout because they are sleeping, have an immediate story mission that needs to be completed, or you had just completed a mission with them. Just keep making calls during your time off-mission until they both are available to hangout.

    Once you've requested to hangout with either one, a new "stickman" icon will appear on your map. This is the location of the person you have just called. Head there, pick them up and then call the other character. Make sure you have a four-door car when picking them up!

    Now in order to obtain a 3 Star Wanted level, you will need to either kill a police officer or trespass the airport. Both of these methods will get you 3 Stars right away, however it is recommended to trespass the airport as you can simply drive laps around the immediate area until three minutes have passed. It is also highly recommended to use a car that has been modified with bulletproof tires. Once three minutes have elapsed during the chase, the achievement will unlock.

  • You're gonna need a bigger boat...

    At any time during your playthrough, make your way to the beach in Western Los Santos and hop into a jet ski near the pier. Drive out into the ocean until the water is dark blue, as this is where you can generally find sharks if you wait long enough (you will know if a shark is nearby when there is a red dot on your mini-map). Once a shark appears, hop off your jet ski and dive underwater. The shark will ignore you at first, but once it gets close it will finally eat you and the achievement will unlock.

  • Deliver an unsuspecting victim to the Altruist Cult.

    During your playthrough, you will sometimes notice your mini-map quickly flashes white and then a flashing red/blue blip will appear. This indicated that there is a Random Event at that blip. These events range from catching a thief to gang shootouts and giving a stranger a lift back home. For this achievement, you will need to be playing as Trevor and wait until you encounter a hitchhiker or drunk pedestrian who needs a ride home.

    After the story mission, "Friends Reunited," you will arrive in Los Santos and already be playing as Trevor. Around the block from Floyd's safehouse, you will encounter a drunk couple who needs a ride home. You should use this time to get this achievement.

    When you pick up the stranger, you will receive a popup notification on the top left corner of your screen informing you that Trevor can bring them to the Altruist Camp in Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness (Northern Blaine County). A white “A” icon will appear on your map immediately. If you set a waypoint to the Altruist Camp, you can follow the new purple route instead of the yellow route that directs you to their house. Once you arrive at the Camp, Trevor escorts the couple to the front gate where the cannibals take them off your hands. At this point, you will unlock the achievement.

  • Spend a total of $200 million across all three characters.


    This achievement is extremely straight forward; just keep purchasing weapons, vehicle mods, properties, and stocks in order to gain progress towards the $200 million mark. Purchasing properties will be extremely costly; however, the advantage to owning multiple properties at once is that your weekly income will net you a substantial amount of cash which can then be used to buy other items. As for stocks, you will want to invest your money in profitable companies, then sell your share(s) a few days later if they have made profit.

    One of the quickest methods in obtaining this achievement is as follows. After you have collected your share of money from the "Big Score" mission, you should have around $20 million per each character. Pick any character and invest all of your money in any stock market. Now immediately sell all your stocks to get all the money back. If you do this ten times, the achievement will unlock in a short amount of time because investing money in the stock market counts as spending money for the achievement. A huge thanks goes to DavoK87 and x S 7 R I K E Z for discovering this method!

  • Make a profit over your total investments in the stock market.

    At any time during your playthrough, open your cell phone and access the Internet. From here, select the “Money & Services” tab and choose any of the stock markets listed. Now select “Markets” and buy any stock that is rising - you can tell which market is gaining profit by the green arrow next to their name. You can buy any amount of stock you’d like, but one stock is enough for this achievement.

    You will now need wait at least 12 in-game hours before returning to the stocks page. When enough time has passed, open the internet of your cellphone, click on “My Portfolio” under the "Money & Services" tab, sell your purchased stock for a profit and the achievement will finally unlock.

  • Fully mod a weapon.

    This achievement can be easily done after completing the fourth story mission when you gain control of Michael outside the car dealership. At this point in the story, he will have around $7,500.

    Make you way to the nearest Ammu-Nation gun store and select the “Standard Handgun” Pistol. Purchase all five upgrades for this sidearm and the achievement will unlock. This will only set you back approximately $3,381 in total:

    • Extended Clip - $387
    • Flashlight – $472
    • Suppressor - $1,822
    • Army Tint - $100
    • LSPD Tint – $600

    Alternatively, if you have a Rockstar Social Club account and your gamertag is linked to it, you will be gifted a free weapon (Assault SMG) when you start the game. All of the mods for this weapon are also free, so simply head to an Ammu-Nation store and equip both the SMG and all the attachments in order to unlock the achievement. The SMG can be found on the right side of the wall when browsing through the dealer's weapon selection.

  • Deliver a bail bond target alive.

    Bail Bond missions are only available while playing as Trevor. After finishing his first mission, "Mr. Philips," make your way to the orange question mark icon on the map in Grapeseed. This will lead you to Maude, who will regularly send you emails of Bail Bond targets with their last know location.

    The first Bail Bond mission you receive will task you with capturing Ralph Ostrowski, who is located in the middle of the Davis Quartz Quarry. This area is located just southeast of Trevor’s safehouse. Once you arrive at the quarry, head on through the entrance and continue straight up the dirt road. A set of train tracks should be on your left and you'll then come to a fork in the road; go right. Make another right at the next fork in the road and proceed up the dirt hill.

    You will now be positioned at the top of the quarry where the road will spiral down into the center construction zone. This is where the Bail Bond target is located. Make your way down there and Ralph will jump into his vehicle and begin flee the area. You're going to need to deliver his alive, so shoot out his tires to immobilize his vehicle and then pull him out of his car. Now get back into your own vehicle with him (he should follow willingly) and return to Maude for your achievement.

    If you have missed your chance in obtaining this achievement on the first Bail Bond target, do not worry, there are a few more targets Maude sends you throughout the game. If you need help locating a Bail Bond target, be sure to check out THIS THREAD for a good map of each target's location.

  • Fully mod a vehicle.

    After the story mission, "Father/Son," you can begin customizing your vehicles at the Los Santos Customs shops. These shops will be marked as a spray paint can icon on your world map. Since each car varies from available mods and price tags, there is no set vehicle to use for this achievement. Just make sure you purchase one of every upgrade from each section in the customize menu when inside the shop. Depending on your vehicle and which mods suit your taste, you will need to save upwards to at least $40,000 to fully modify your vehicle.

    Take note that the achievement only unlocks once you exit Los Santos Customs. Additionally, many people are overlooking the fact that you need to buy one of each Wheel Accessory: Custom Tires, Bulletproof Tires & Smoke Tires; as well as the Chrome finish in addition to any other regular respray (Classic, Matte, Metallic).

  • Complete all Under the Bridge and Knife Flight challenges.

    There are two types of Aerial Challenges in GTA V: Under the Bridges and Knife Flights. Under the Bridge challenges task you with simply flying under 50 bridges across the world, while Knife Flights require you to “knife” your plane through two buildings. There are 15 Knife Flights located around San Andreas.

    If you have dipped your toes in the Flight School challenges in the Los Santos International Airport, you will already be familiar with what a "knife" is and how to perform one. If not, a "knife" is when you roll the plane on its side using the left thumbstick so the wings are vertical with the horizon. To maintain altitude while in this position, hold the opposite rudder ( or ). For example, if you rolled left and are trying to maintain a left knife, hold . It is recommended to perform the Knife Flight challenges in a slow plane such as the stunt plane or a biplane like a crop duster. You can steal a crop duster around Trevor’s McKenzie Field airstrip as they often land there.

    Unlike the Knife Flights, Under the Bridge challenges can be completed in any aircraft. You will find out, however, that some aircraft types are much easier to pilot than others depending on the bridge you’re trying to fly under. Thus, the Buzzard Helicopter is strongly recommended for these challenges. Also, Trevor is the logical character when going for this achievement because he starts off with the highest piloting skill.

    You can find helicopters in Vespucci and planes at any airport or McKenzie Field (Trevor’s airstrip). You can also purchase planes and helicopters online (elitastravel.com), as well as military helicopters on warstock-cache-and-carry.com. Remember, if either your helicopter, jet, or plane gets significantly damaged, use the quick save and immediately reload the game. Your aircraft will automatically be repaired when you are loaded back into the game. As a final note, be sure to use the quick save feature before attempting the harder Under the Bridge and Knife Flight Stunts.

  • GTA Online: Complete the Introduction.

    When you launch GTA V Online for the first time, you will be required to create your own character using the heritage, attributes and appearance modifications. After you finish customizing your character, click "Save and Continue" in order to begin your Online experience. There will be a short cutscene as Lamar drives you through the city of Los Santos and fills you in on the activities and people you will encounter around San Andreas. After he drops you off at the Tutorial Race, the achievement will unlock.

  • GTA Online: Reach Rank 25.

    Please refer below to "Above the Law" for more information.

  • GTA Online: Reach Rank 50.

    Please refer below to "Above the Law" for more information.

  • GTA Online: Reach Rank 100.

    Every mission, activity and challenge you complete in GTA Online will net you Reputation Points (RP). This RP is essentially experience points that will increase your overall Rank. In order to reach Rank 100, you will need to gain just about 1,584,350 RP. It is recommended to complete as many Jobs and activities available whenever you are playing online in order to net a good amount of RP during your session.

    In other words, as soon as Lester, Martin, or any other NPC calls you with a job, do not ignore it! Also, it's worth mentioning here that playing with fellow crew members and full lobbies will net a little more RP than usual at the end of an activity. Since most of the great RP-grinding methods from the Xbox 360 version of the game have been patched, this achievement will take a very long time in obtaining legitimately.

    Unfortunately, many of the low-ranking jobs players will receive are short and do not offer that much RP. Despite this truth, it is absolutely necessary to complete as many jobs as possible until the more rewarding ones, such as Coveted (unlocked at Rank 36) and Rooftop Rumble (unlocked at Rank 75), are available. Once you reach these ranks, the aforementioned missions can be started by performing the following steps: Pause > Online > Jobs > Host Job > Missions > Coveted/Rooftop Rumble.

    As mentioned, this achievement will require some plenty of dedicated hours of playtime. Some of the jobs may get extremely tedious if you decide to perform the same one over and over again, so try varying your activities to help unload the stress involved with this achievement.

  • GTA Online: Obtain first place in all competitive game types.

    There are several game types that you will encounter during your time on GTA Online. While some are available from the start of the game, others are only unlocked when you have reached a certain Rank. Do not worry about obtaining each of these wins in a public match against other players, though. You can work on all of these in a Closed Friends Session so long as you have the required amount of players for each game type. Most game types only require two players, while others will require four. Below, you can find a list of all the game types you must win in order to get this achievement.

    • Land Race
    • Air Race
    • Sea Race
    • GTA Race
    • Rally Race (four players required)
    • Deathmatch
    • Team Deathmatch
    • 10 Waves of Survival (four players recommended)
    • Gang Attack (can be done solo)
    • Golf (can be set to 1 hole)
    • Tennis (can be set to 1 set)
    • Darts
    • Arm Wrestling
    • Parachuting
    • Any challenge at the Shooting Range

    If for whatever reason you lose track of your progress for this achievement, you can check where you have already gained victories by following these steps: PAUSE > STATS > AWARDS > VICTORIES. Once you gain a victory in all fifteen competitive game types, the achievement will finally unlock.

  • GTA Online: Use custom vehicles to win 5 races.

    After completing the first few Jobs during your Online experience, Simeon will call you and tell you to bring a vehicle to the nearest Los Santos Customs shop in order to insure it. Steal any vehicle you'd like - although a fast sports car or muscle car is suggested - and head to the shop. There, you can insure the vehicle and add a select few mods which will all be free thanks to Simeon.

    Upon exiting the shop, you will now be informed about the various Jobs and Races available around San Andreas. Open up the world map and scroll down the map legend until you get to Land Races. Set a waypoint on the nearest Land Race and head over there. When you arrive, you will notice a small blue circle at the Race Start. Get out of your vehicle and walk inside the circle to initiate the race.

    In the Race Settings Menu, change the "Laps" to 1, "Vehicle Type" to whichever model your insured vehicle is (Sports, Muscle, Motorbike, SUV, etc.) and make sure "Custom Vehicles" is on. Now invite a friend to the race and when selecting your vehicle, make sure it's your new custom ride you just customized at the shop. Once the race begins, communicate with your partner so they allow you to win the race. As a recommendation, "Criminal Records" is the best track to use when going for this achievement. Once the race is over (it should only last forty to sixty seconds given the small track), you can vote to replay the same race. Simply obtain four more victories over your partner and the achievement will be yours in no time.

  • GTA Online: Complete all 10 waves of a Survival.

    You must be at least a Rank 15 to unlock the Survival missions. These missions are essentially a "horde" mode where you will need to fend off against ten waves of enemies. After each wave, you are given a short amount of time to restock on the ammo, health, and body armor that is scattered around the map. Each wave also becomes progressively harder; enemies will have stronger weapons, attack in larger numbers, spawn in SUV's, or even helicopters.

    Once you have reached the required rank mentioned above, Ron will give you a call and fill you in on these missions. After the phone call, open up your world map and find the closest Survival Job which is marked by a shield and cross icon. At first, there are only three Survival maps you can choose. These are Boneyard, Sandy Survival and Industrial Plant. The Railyard Survival map will unlock once you have reached Rank 20, and the Processed map at Rank 25.

    Out of the three starting maps, Boneyard is the best choice. In the middle of this map, there are two large hangers that have a small fenced off area in between the buildings. This fenced area provides excellent cover as enemies will not be able to shoot through the fence, even though you standing out in the open. If you choose this method, make sure to have at least three other players with you; one player will need to cover the doorway into the fenced area, and the other two players should cover either side of the hanger by shooting the enemies through the fence.

    Make sure to follow these four simple tips and you should be able to clear all 10 waves with less trouble:

    • Make sure you are playing with in full 4 player lobby
    • Always use cover!
    • When necessary, stock up on ammo, health, and body armor between each wave
    • Make sure all your teammates have microphones because communication here is essential

    It is worth mentioning at this time that completing all ten waves is a necessary requirement for the Numero Uno achievement. Additionally, you will unlock a Platinum Award upon completing all ten waves. All in all, once you have successfully completed all ten waves on the Survival map, the achievement will then unlock.

  • GTA Online: Direct a driver to 1st place as co-driver in Rally Mode.

    Rally Mode Races are a distinct variant of Land Races that are found scattered around the city of Los Santos. When you enter the blue circle of the "Race Start," and accept the Job, a Settings Menu will immediately drop down. Change the "Race Type" to "Rally Mode" and now invite your partner(s). Take note that the Rally Mode Race can only begin if there are an even amount of players in the lobby.

    In the "Settings Menu", assign your partner to the "Preferred Driver" and select which role you would like to be, whether it is Driver or Co-Driver. The Driver - obviously - will maneuver the vehicle throughout the race but will not be able to see the checkpoints. It is up to the Co-Driver to direct the Driver throughout the course as only they are able to see the checkpoints.

    Although, this can be boosted, communication remains KEY while going for this achievement. If the Co-Driver is not giving precise directions, the Driver will have no idea where to go. Once the Driver has crossed the finish line in first place, whoever took the role of the Co-Driver will unlock the achievement.

  • GTA Online: Survive for a day with a Bounty on your head.

    Before you can attempt this achievement, you must be a Rank 10. Once at this rank, Lester will eventually give you a call, so head over to his house for a short cutscene where he informs you about Bounties. After this, load up a Private Lobby with a friend who is also a Rank 10 and have each player call Lester. There will be an option to "Place a Bounty" on a player in the lobby for a minimum of $2,000. Place a bounty on each other and simply wait for 24 in-game hours (45 minutes real-time) to pass.

    Be sure NOT to kill each other, or it will void the achievement; however, if an NPC kills you, it does not void the time. Furthermore, if you decide to perform any activity within the world, the timer will pause. Also, take note that you can get kicked for inactivity if you are standing idled for too long. To avoid getting kicked out of the lobby and ruining your progress towards the achievement, it is recommended to either cruise around the city in a car or hang out in your apartment - if you have one - until the achievement unlocks.

    Alternatively, you can try to get this achievement solo if you do not have anyone to place a bounty on you. Often times, when you hijack enough vehicles during your online session, the NPC you hijacked will text you with a threatening message informing you that they are going to get back at you. Shortly after, Lester will call you and let you know that the NPC has placed a bounty on your head. If this happens, follow the method above in order to pass 24 in-game hours.

  • GTA Online: Finish a Gang Attack without dying and kill at least 10 enemies.

    Gang Attacks will only unlock once you have reached Rank 18. After hitting this Rank, you will receive a phone call from Martin informing you of local gangs hanging around various different neighborhoods in San Andreas. Your goal is to terminate these gangs from their hideouts.

    Gang Attacks are indicated by large, yet faint, red circles on your mini-map. Take note that these red circles DO NOT appear on the world map, so keep your eyes peeled on the mini-map when cruising around Los Santos and Blaine County. Once you enter the circle, the Gang Attack will immediately begin as AI gang members start attacking/ambushing your position. You will need to eliminate the entire group of gang members - ranging anywhere from 15 to 30 enemies - until the area is clear. Simply survive the entire assault without dying and get at least ten kills in order to unlock this achievement.

    While this can be done on your own, it would be beneficial to work on this with at least one other player. This is helpful because your partner can take all the damage and clear out the rest of the gang hideout once you have obtained your ten kills. Remember, the achievement will only unlock once the Gang Attack is complete, not when you get your tenth kill. If you need help locating the Gang Attacks, please visit THIS LINK for more information.

  • GTA Online: Earn 30 Platinum Awards.

    There are a total of 85 Awards available Grand Theft Auto Online. These Awards are essentially a set of small challenges that range from getting a certain number of kills with a weapon to changing your outfit a number of times and winning a few rounds of the different sports and activities around San Andreas.

    While most Awards have different tiers of medals - Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum - there are exactly 22 challenges that will net you a Platinum Award upon immediate completion. Once you have earned at least 30 Platinums, you will unlock the achievement. Remember, you can always check your progress for these Awards by following these steps: PAUSE > STATS > AWARDS.

    Please utilize THIS THREAD for a checklist of all 85 Online Awards. This link also points out the 22 Platinum-only Awards and will provide great tips on how to get the easiest Awards during your Online play.

  • GTA Online: Hold up all 20 Stores.

    Shortly after finishing your first official job for Lamar, he will give you a call and fill you in on your next Job in which you will have to hold up a convenient store for some cash. After the phone call, pull up your cellphone and click "Jobs List." Activate the sole Job available and follow the waypoint to the nearby gas station. Once you are there, head inside and hold up the store by pointing your gun at the cashier. As he is filling up a bag with money, you can shoot at the wall behind him to make him move faster. After he hands over the bag, exit the store and try to lose your Wanted Level so that the mission is registered as complete.

    Now open up your world map and scroll down the map legend with the D-pad until you get to the store icon. Here, you can filter through each of the 20 stores around San Andreas and set waypoints to their location. Take note that you can rob multiple stores in one go, even when the police are chasing you.

    For the quickest method in obtaining this achievement, try to hit as many stores possible before the police manage to kill you. Also, instead of waiting for the cashier to fill the bag with money, punch him or shoot him right away and press when behind the register to empty out the cash yourself.

    Sometimes, you may notice the store you just robbed disappears from your world map when heading to the next one. Don't worry about this; it still counts towards this achievement so long as you collected the money inside the register. The reason it disappears is because the shop "closes down" after being robbed. If for whatever reason you lose track of your progress while working on this, you can tell which store has been successfully robbed by the indication of a small green check mark next to their icon on the world map. Once all 20 stores in San Andreas have been robbed, this achievement will be yours.

  • GTA Online: Participate in everything Los Santos has to offer.

    The world of San Andreas has a plethora of activities to indulge yourself in during your time Online. Such activities may range from races to parachuting, all the way to playing sports and grooming your character at the local barbershop. Below, you will find a checklist outlining the activities required for this achievement. As with the Platinum Awards, you can check your progress towards these activities by following these steps: PAUSE > STATS > UNLOCKS > PROGRESS.

    You will notice there are far more activities listed in the Progress Menu than there are in the checklist below; however, the only activities that count towards the achievement are listed here. Furthermore, next to each activity, there will be a "No" or "Yes" indicating whether or not you have completed or participated in that specific activity. You will want to make sure all your activities say "YES" next to them. If you quit out of any of these, the activity will be marked "YES", but it will not count towards the achievement.

    • Get a haircut
    • Get a tattoo
    • Buy clothes
    • Play golf
    • Play tennis
    • Play darts
    • Play shooting range (complete one challenge here)
    • Have an arm wrestle
    • Hold up a store
    • Buy a private dance at the Strip Club

    Please be aware that Arm Wrestling, Darts, Golf, Tennis and the Strip Club activities will only be available past Rank 7. With that said, once all ten activities have been completed, the achievement will unlock.

  • GTA Online: Complete a Job as a member of a Crew.

    Before you can attempt this, make sure you are part of a Crew on Rockstar's Social Club website. You can join a Crew through the Pause Menu of the game, or CLICK HERE to request an invite to a specific Crew of your choosing. Once you're all set, you will want to complete any available Job around Los Santos - whether it is a race or an actual mission - with another member of the same Crew. Upon successfully completing the Job, the achievement will unlock.

  • GTA Online: Kill the thief that mugged you.

    To get this achievement, you will need to be playing with someone who has already reached Rank 50. This is because once a player reaches Rank 50, they will have the ability to hire a Mugger for $1,000 through their in-game cellphone by calling Lamar. Take note that the player you are calling the hit on must have at least $5,000 on hand to get this done.

    Set up a Closed-Friends Lobby and meet up in an enclosed section of the city with very few cars. The top floor of a parking garage or the desert of Sandy Shores works perfectly for this. After the Rank 50 player calls the hit on you, an enemy NPC will eventually show up, knock you down, and steal all your money. There will be a short delay before you are able to stand up, so pan the camera around to see where the Mugger runs off to. Once you get up, chase him down and kill him with whatever means are available to obtain the achievement.

  • GTA Online: Call for a Backup Helicopter for the first time.

    You must be at least a Rank 20 in order to receive Helicopter backup. Upon reaching this rank, Merryweather will contact you and inform you that they can provide backup in the form of air-support units to your location. Once you have received this information, open your in-game cellphone and select "Merryweather" in your Contacts. Once the call goes through, you will see a tab with their services pop up on the screen. If you have enough money, select "Helicopter Backup", which costs $5,000, and the achievement will unlock immediately.

  • GTA Online: Own an Apartment, Garage and an Insured Vehicle.

    During your time on GTA Online, you will need complete various jobs and activities in order to save enough money to buy an apartment, garage and an insured vehicle. Near the beginning of your Online experience, Simeon will tell you to grab a vehicle and bring it to the nearest Los Santos Customs shop. Here, you can respray and insure the vehicle for free, because he is covering the cost.

    As for the apartment and garage, you must be at least a Rank 5 before you can purchase property. Once you are of rank and have enough money, pull up your in-game cellphone and check the real estate advert, "Dynasty 8," on home page of the Internet. Find an apartment with an attached garage that is both affordable and suits your needs, then purchase it through the website. The achievement will unlock immediately after purchasing the apartment and garage if you still own your insured vehicle.

    Many people have reported that if you try to buy an apartment or garage through the real estate signs on the actual property, the achievement will not unlock. In order to avoid this, just make sure you purchase property through Dynasty 8 website on the Internet. A big thanks to Just Blaze for confirmation on this glitchy aspect of the achievement.

  • Play GTA V in first person mode for 15 hours.

    As a brand new feature brought to GTA V and GTA Online for Xbox One, players now hold the ability to play as their character(s) in the first person perspective mode. In order to switch between the standard third person view and the new first person perspective, you will need to tap the "view" button on the Xbox One controller one or two times.

    This will toggle between the various different camera angeles in third person before entering the new first person perspective mode. As a note, this works whether you are on foot or sitting inside a vehicle (car, plane, helicopter, etc.) Since this achievement requires so much time spent in the new mode, many players may not necessarily want to work towards this legitimately during their time on the game.

    Fortunately, as confirmed by Just Blaze, you can grind this achievement out by sitting in a car or standing anywhere in the world - in your house, for example - in first person mode. Any time spent in this mode during your playthrough will add to the in-game clock that can be found by following these steps: PAUSE > STATS > GENERAL > TIME PLAYED IN FIRST PERSON.

    Regardless of which way you decide to approach this task, the achievement will finally unlock once a minimum of fifteen hours have been registered in the new first person perspective mode.

DLC: Heists

There are 9 achievements with a total of 250 points

  • GTA Online: Invest your hard earned cash to set up a Heist.

    In order to obtain this achievement, you must be the heist leader (host) during a Heist Setup mission. 

    Once you complete the initial tutorial heist, “The Fleeca Job,” you will receive a call from Lester at some point, which leads you to the next heist: “The Prison Break.” When you are ready to start the first Setup mission of “The Prison Break,” go ahead and enter your apartment’s planning room, paying $40,000 to initialize the mission (the mission is indicated by a green “H” icon). The achievement will unlock immediately once the cost has been covered and the following cutscene starts to play. 

  • GTA Online: As Heist Leader set the Finale cut as 25% across all players.

    In order to obtain this achievement, you must be the heist leader (host) during a Heist Finale mission.

    The earliest this can be achieved is during the second heist, “The Prison Break.” After your team of four has completed all four of the Setup missions, host a lobby for the Finale and invite your party. Once the party is ready, the leader will be required to assign roles for all four players and distribute the cut for the final payout. At this point, set the cut to an equal 25% across all four players and the achievement will unlock after the Finale has been completed. 

  • GTA Online: Spend a total of $8,000,000 purchasing vehicles included as part of The Heists Update.

    Through the Heist Update, several vehicles have been added to the game, including armored sedans, fighter jets, and even prison buses. Take note that for this achievement, players must spend a minimum of $8 million on the vehicles included in this update, not their upgrades/modifications. 

    Generally, most of the new vehicles are rather expensive, so players with a small pool of money will need to complete various jobs and heists in order to amass $8 million. Also, please take note that the vehicles are not all available right away. Instead, you will need to complete the heists in order to unlock them one by one. Below, there is a complete checklist of all the new vehicles included in the update with the website you can find them on through your in-game phone. Pick and choose whichever vehicles you’d like to own and the achievement should be yours in no time. 

    Elitas Travel

    • Velum 5-Seater - $995,000

    Legendary Motorsport

    • Casco - $680,000
    • Lectro - $750,000

    Warstock Cache and Carry

    • Insurgent Pick-Up - $1,350,000
    • Insurgent - $675,000
    • Hydra - $3,000,000
    • Valkyrie - $2,850,000
    • Technical - $950,000
    • Mule - $32,000
    • Savage - $1,950,000
    • Mesa - $87,000
    • Prison Bus - $550,000

    Dock Tease

    • Dingy -$125,000

    Southern San Andreas Super Autos

    • Vapid Guardian - $375,000
    • Dinka Enduro - $48,000
    • Declasse Gang Burrito - $65,000
    • Karin Kuruma - $95,000
    • Karin Kuruma (Armored) - $525,000
    • Canis Seminole - $30,000
    • Bravado Rumpo - $13,000
    • Ocelot Jackal - $60,000
    • Ubermacht Oracle XS - $82,000
    • Benefactor Schafter - $65,000
    • Cheval Surge - $38,000
    • Bravado Gresley - $29,000
    • Dundreary Landstalker - $58,000
    • Principe Nemesis - $12,000

    If amassing $8 million seems a little daunting, there is a workaround for this achievement that only requires players to have at a bare minimum, $3.4 million. 

    To begin, complete the tutorial heist entitled, “The Fleeca Job,” as it will unlock the Karin Kuruma (Armored) for purchase. Now buy the car off the auto website for $525,000 and wait for the in-game text message that indicates the vehicle has been delivered to your garage. Go to your apartment, get inside the Kuruma, and exit the garage. Now head to the nearest Los Santos Customs and you will be able to sell the vehicle for $315,000 provided you did not damage the car on your way to the mod shop. This essentially translates to a minimal net loss of only $210,000. 

    From here, you will automatically exit Los Santos Customs. Open up your in-game phone and purchase another Kuruma, wait for it to be delivered to your garage, then repeat the process detailed above. You will want to continue cycling through this method exactly 16 times in order to obtain the achievement. For the math involved, 16 purchases of the Kuruma, which costs $525,000, equals $8,400,000. As to why this method only requires a minimum of $3.4 million; 16 purchases multiplied by the net loss of $210,000 equals $3,360,000.

    Despite your preferred method in working towards this, once you have successfully purchased a total of $8 million worth of Heist Update vehicles, this achievement will finally unlock. 

  • GTA Online: Complete a Heist Finale without taking any damage.

    This achievement can be obtained without much effort during the finale of the tutorial heist, “The Fleeca Job.”

    During the aforementioned heist finale, both the driller and the driver can earn the achievement by quickly getting into the getaway vehicle (an armored Kuruma) after the drilling segment has concluded. While driving towards the objective, both players should duck their heads inside the vehicle by holding (though this is not totally necessary) in order to ensure extra caution from any incoming fire. 

    Once the driver has reached the open highway and positions the vehicle underneath the Cargobob, the aircraft will grab the Kuruma and the heist will conclude. At this time, both players should unlock the achievement right away provided they did not take health damage during the duration of the finale. 

  • GTA Online: Earn 25 platinum medals across Heist Setups and Finales.

    In the Heist Update, platinum medals are rewarded to players who perform the best during a Heist Setup mission or Heist Finale. What constitutes performing above and beyond your crewmates are the number of kills and headshots one achieves, as well as accuracy and general contributions towards completing the main objective of the mission. After completing a Heist Setup mission or Heist Finale, you will be presented with the post-mission screen, which shows the players in the party and which tier medal they obtained: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. 

    Generally, the easiest way to obtain this achievement is to partner up with a single other player and continuously replay Lester’s first heist, “The Fleeca Job,” which is the only two-player heist available. In order to replay this heist, pull up your in-game phone and give Lester a call. A drop down menu on the upper left side of your screen will appear, so go ahead and select the option "Replay Heist > The Fleeca Job." Now wait a few seconds and Lester will call you back, informing you that the heist is now available to start (indicated by a green "H" icon in your apartment's planning room). 

    During the first Setup mission here, the player going for the platinum medal should be the driver during the duration of the mission. As for the second Setup mission, the player going for the platinum medal should clear out most, if not all of the enemies around the Kuruma on the top level of the Del Perro parking garage, then proceed to drive the Kuruma to Lester’s warehouse. Lastly, during the Heist Finale, the player going for the platinum medal should be assigned the “Driver” role. 

    Following the method described above, one player can net three platinum medals in a matter of 20-25 minutes over the course of the three aforementioned missions. As mentioned, you can continue to replay this heist multiple times, so grinding out the achievement on “The Fleeca Job” is by far the quickest way to obtain 25 platinum medals. Just take note that there is a 90-120 IRL cool down to replay this heist, which can prove to be a burden. To bypass this cool down period, please refer to THIS POST

    If for whatever reason you lose track of your progress for this achievement, you can check how many platinum medals you currently have by following these steps: PAUSE > STATS > AWARDS > HEISTS > DECORATED AWARD. This award tracks how many platinum medals you have achieved. Thanks to Colonel Gray for this tip!

 

Secret achievements

  • GTA Online: Complete a Heist Setup.

    Each of the five heists available in the Heist Update include multiple “Heist Setup” missions that need to be completed prior to playing the “Heist Finale” mission.

The first Setup mission available is for the tutorial heist entitled, “The Fleeca Job.”

Once all the trash bags have been collected, return to Tevor's warehouse with the Trashmaster.
    • Series A - Bikers

After purchasing your office, open up the Interaction Menu and scroll down to SecuroServ. You can use this option to register as a CEO and then name your Organization.

    Becoming a VIP

    • There is no upfront cost, but you will need a bank balance of at least $50,000. If you have the funds, open up the Interaction Menu and scroll down to SecuroServ. You can use this option to register as a VIP and then name your Organization.

    Becoming an MC President

    • There is no upfront cost to this. Simply purchase any Clubhouse from the Maze Bank Foreclosures app on the in-game phone. Once that's done, open up the Interaction Menu and scroll down to Motorcycle Club. You can use this option to register as an MC President and then name your Organization.

    On top of this, you must also own one of the following Facilities from the Maze Bank Foreclosures app on the in-game phone:

    • Paleto Bay - $1,250,000
    • Mount Gordo - $1,475,000
    • Lago Zancudo - $1,670,000
    • Wind Farm - $1,855,000
    • Zancudo River - $2,100,000
    • Route 68 - $2,312,000
    • Grand Señora - $2,525,000
    • Sandy Shores - $2,740,000
    • Land Act Reservoir - $2,950,000

    Once you have the appropriate status and own a Facility, visit your new property and make your way to the "H" icon in the Briefing Room. Here, you can pay $65,000 to set up The Doomsday Heist, thus unlocking the achievement.

  • GTA Online: Kill another player with the Orbital Cannon.

    This achievement is best done in a private session with at least one other player.

    Once you have purchased your Facility, you are given the option to furnish and upgrade the building with a variety of rooms and services. One of these upgrades is the Orbital Cannon, which costs $900,000. Purchase this upgrade and then visit the Facility.

    Make your way to the Orbital Cannon room. It's located towards the back of the building, right across the Heist Briefing Room. Approach the table and interact with the menu by pressing . You will now be able to surveillance the entirety of Los Santos via a bird's eye view.

    Coordinate with the other player in your game to find where on the map they are located (there should be a faint green box around them). Once you know their position, you can choose to fire a manual targeting shot for $500,000, or an automatic targeting shot for $750,000. Since they should be standing still, the cheaper option is more advisable. The achievement will unlock once you have killed the other player with the Cannon.

    NOTE: There is a 48-minute cooldown on the Cannon. Additionally, other players cannot use your Cannon whatsoever; however, they are able to spectate your actions through the surveillance feed while you are operating it.

  • GTA Online: Complete all 3 Elite Challenges in The Doomsday Heist.

    In order to obtain this achievement, you will need to complete all of the Elite Challenges for each Heist Finale in The Doomsday Heist. Before covering basic guidelines and tips, please refer below to each Finale's Elite Challenge and take note that they can be done on Normal.

    Act I

    • Complete under 5:30 minutes
    • Kill 78 enemies
    • Nobody gets wasted

    Act II

    • Complete under 15:00 minutes
    • Vehicle damage 5% or less
    • Nobody gets wasted

    Act III

    • Complete under 30:00 minutes
    • Nobody gets wasted
    • 0 hacks failed
    • 150 headshots

    As you can see, the most difficult part of each Elite Challenge is completing the Finale under a certain time constraint. As such, it's worth discussing which of the Facilities is best situated for each Finale.

    • For the Act I Finale, the Grand Senora Desert Facility ($2,525,000) is the closest.
    • For the Act II Finale, the Paleto Bay Facility ($1,250,000) is the closest.
    • For the Act III Finale, the Sandy Shores Facility ($2,740,000) is the closest.

    All of that being said, you can only own one Facility at a time. So, if you coordinate with your teammates, you can each buy the Facilities mentioned above; however, if the same player will be hosting all three heists, the Sandy Shores Facility is probably the best option (despite its grand cost).

    Now that you know which Facilities are best, please continue reading below for some basic tips and notes for each Finale.

    General Guidelines

    • Don't bother attempting this on your first go at the Finale
    • Tackle these Elite Challenges on your second or third playthrough as to increase your familiarity with objective routes and enemy spawns
    • All players present should be using microphones to communicate
    • These Elite Challenges are best done with a full group of four players
    • Stock up on snacks and Super Heavy Body Armor before every Finale
    • When traveling to the Finale's location from your Facility, everyone should be in one vehicle (ideally, an Armored Kuruma)
    • It's smart to use a stopwatch during these Finales; as soon as you gain control of your character after leaving the Facility, start the stopwatch

    Because playstyle and strategies will vary from player to player, there are no set-in-stone guidelines on how to tackle each individual portion of a Finale's Elite Challenge. Overall, the Challenges themselves are pretty self-explanatory: complete the Finale quickly, ensure nobody dies, and either kill a set amount of enemies, keep your vehicle in pristine condition, complete hacks perfectly, and score a set amount of headshots.

    Remember, do not try these Elite Challenges on your first playthrough of the Heist Finales. It's much easier and far more intelligent to attempt them once you are very familiar with the objectives at hand, the routes you need to take to these objectives, and where and how the enemy will act in regards to your presence in the mission.

    Once all three sets of Elite Challenges have been completed, this achievement will finally unlock.

  • GTA Online: Complete all 3 Criminal Mastermind challenges in The Doomsday Heist.

    In order to obtain this achievement, you will need to complete three different challenges for The Doomsday Heist. You can check your progress at any time by pressing and going to STATS > Awards > The Doomsday Heist. The challenges in question are:

    Criminal Mastermind II: Complete The Doomsday Heist in order, with the same team of 2 players, on hard, difficulty, without losing any lives on Setups and Finales.

    Criminal Mastermind III: Complete The Doomsday Heist in order, with the same team of 3 players, on hard, difficulty, without losing any lives on Setups and Finales.

    Criminal Mastermind IV: Complete The Doomsday Heist in order, with the same team of 4 players, on hard, difficulty, without losing any lives on Setups and Finales.

    Continue reading below for additional guidelines, strategies, and tips involved with this achievement.

    Key Tips, Guidelines, and Notes

    • Prep missions can only be done in public lobbies, while Setups and Finales can be done in Private lobbies
    • You can die during Prep missions
    • You cannot purchase Prep equipment/vehicles or utilize the "Trip Skip" option during missions as it will void challenge progress
    • You can fail a Setup or Finale (and restart by using the "Quick Restart" option) but it cannot be due to a death
    • You can call Lester and remove your Wanted Level during Prep missions
    • Using an Armored Kuruma during Prep and Setups missions is highly recommended
    • Buy full ammo and full Super Heavy Body Armor before every Setup and Finale
    • Stock on free snacks inside the Facility before every Setup and Finale
    • When eating snacks for health regeneration, do so in cover as it cancels the animation of eating the food
    • Make sure to eat snacks and apply body armor mid-mission through the Interaction Menu

    All in all, these three challenges willprove to be difficult, but with enough practice and with a good group of teammates, each challenge should be manageable within a handful of hours (the only overly difficult one is Criminal Mastermind II, as some mission objectives are seemingly impossible with just two players).

    As a final note, make sure you are checking your Challenge progress after each and every Prep, Setup, and Finale. There have been some reports that the Challenges often reset themselves (for reasons unknown), so checking your status periodically is a good way to make sure you are staying on track.

    Once all three of the new Criminal Mastermind Challenges have been completed, this achievement will finally unlock.
