Comments
  • Yes I will.
  • I will enjoy every moment of working towards this one.
  • Here we go, 100% in GTA IV and Red Dead Redemption, going to get this as well.
  • This shit is gonna be hard to get :P
  • Oh yeah I can't wait.
  • Watching trailers, this doesn't look possible! haha
  • @2 You will enjoy every moment? EVEN if they had another set of fucking pigeons?
  • 100% on RDR, now going for GTA V!
  • I did Red Dead Redemption, LA Noire, Bully and GTA IV. Can't wait to unlock this!
  • Can't wait to earn this! I did for GTA IV & Red Dead. I don't mind pigeons at all. Gives me a chance to explore more of the city and see all the detail they put into the game. Plus I just put on podcasts and go.
  • I sure will try, but only time will tell if I get it or not. Still something really fun to go towards. I didn't really attempt to do it in GTA IV, but I might try on this one.
  • Seems as no one has asked how the hell have you guys got this achievement list ? :)
  • Anyone interested in forming a GTA V clan add me on Xbox Live GT - CashHeath
  • will be a nice challenge that im looking forward to :D
  • Wonder what the hidden item will be this time - Pigeons again? guess we'll see. 4 weeks is just way to long!!!!
  • Awesome!!!!!
  • I 100%-ed Red Dead Redemption and L.A. Noire, this is going to be fun.
  • This is gonna be one roller coaster of a ride!
  • This will probably take longer than RDR because the map will be much larger :/ While I did get the redeemed achievement in RDR. I'd rather not do a shit tonne of bounty hunter type missions and some of the hunter challenges were annoying
  • This will be great! :)
  • I %100 GTA IV(damn flying rats) and San Andreas. I intend to complete this %100 even when the next gen consoles come out.
  • As long as there is no more pigeons, I will happily do this!
  • #15 maybe the 3 different characters will each have an item to look for :)
  • Only one month to go :D
  • If anyone would like to make a "gang" with me and my friends add me my gt is xAmazzed
  • @#23 that seems like an extremely likely scenario. they could even make jokes, come across something a different character collects and they'd just start dissing it. "Why the F___ do people collect these?" now i'm going to be sad if it isn't like this.
  • This is going to take forever!
  • Sure it might take forever but it should be somewhat fun...I hope
  • I got the physical Key To Liberty City sent to me by Rockstar for getting 100% on GTA IV. Does anyone know if they are doing something similar on this version?
  • Looking forward to this. Just hope there won't be more flying rats to kill, it was boring !
  • This is gonna fun and a pain in the ass at the same time.
  • Did it in gtaIV and Red dead. It's going to take a long time I hope.
  • one of the hardest ones i think :/
  • we waited soo long for gta 5.. ill take as long as it takes to get this one.. Whats the rush?
  • Let's see I got 100% in GTA IV and twice in RDR. I'm definitely going for this one.
  • I've 100% 3, VC, SA and 4 and I won't stop there! (Never got the chance to do LCS or VCS)
  • @29 I heard rumors that if you are one of the first to get 100% you get a full refund on your game
  • Is there a checklist yet ?
  • Check out Rockstar's Social Club, log in and there you have it ;)
  • This shits gunna suck. I got to 99.85% on GTA 4 and didn't know what else to do. Rockstar needs lessons on achievements. None of their games are even relatively fun to grind out 100%.
  • When i checked the rockstar website it seemed that you just needed to play all missions and side missions to 100% the game. Do you need to get 100% in each mission? That gives it a lot of replay value but it will be a grind considering there are over 100 missions (including side quests). Can anyone clarify?
  • Pause the game and go to stats and in their is a 100 % checklist for you if you are stuck.
  • Will work on this game until Xbox One comes out. Then I see this disappearing from my priority list.
  • Can you actually get this achievement when you've finished the game? Cus you have to kill 1 character. =/
  • @45 thanks for the spoiler fuckbag.
  • @45 Are you retarded.. thanks for spoiling idiot.
  • @45 thanks for spoiling it you fuckin' retard
  • @45 MAJOR SPOILER Wow i just beat the game like 20 mins ago and if i seen this post i wouldve been pissed but yea u suck for that one
  • Well now the games ruined for me...thanks asshole.
  • Hey join my crew and be prepared to take on GTA Online. http://socialclub.rockstargames.com/crew/lossantos_crips_213 We will be organizing heists daily and taking on rival gangs! You can join up-to 5 crews so don't feel like you have to make a decision between our crew and one of your friends because you don't! This crew is currently open so anyone can join, this means you can invite your friends! Right now the only people that are getting higher ranks are my friends but if you preform good when online comes out you too can be promoted
  • I don't think, 45's comment is true, because there are a lots of ingame choices, and I'm sure, our decisions will make effect to the outcome. (2 or more ending variations..) So don't afraid about @45's comment ruining our game, just make the decisions wisely!
  • good bye life...
  • #45 is bullshiting. No one has to die. Finished it on Wednesday. And all my characters are still there. That would definately be a fucking ending.
  • #45 what the fuck is wrong with u say spoiler alert or something jeez ur a fucktard go die in a hole while being raped by little kids with high pitched voices playing cod
  • LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL LOOOOOOOOL
  • anybody know what all the requirements are i get that all the collectables and the side quest will be one but what about mission golds do you need to get a gold on all the missions
  • I've got 5 strangers & freaks to do, but there's nothing on the map. Does anybody know how to "activate" the missions?
  • @58 Yes! Strangers show up, after you finished concrete missions or other deeds, what needed. For example, you must collect the 50 letter scraps to get the stranger with the conclusion of that storyline. There are also strangers who will give you a lot of stranger missions. (Like Tonya's tow truck missions. There are 5 of them. 20 concrete stranger mission must be done for the 100%.
  • The achievements for this game sucks!!! Too much effort and not enough reward, just my opinion guys.
  • @58 switch characters
  • Yeeeaahhhhh got it, got it :D :D It was the best game ever!
  • completed!! ;)
  • So i have 13 of 16 misc. done but i know what 2 of the 3 im missing are and the game guide doesnt really go into depth what all you need. Anybody know all 16??
  • Completed for me too! :) @64 SoloAnderson: MISC: - 4 friend activities (darts, strip club, bar, cinema) - visit a cinema (alone) - 25 stunt jumps (25/50, so you can choose the easy jumps.) - 25 under the bridge (25/50) - 8 knife flights (8/15) - Purchase a vehicle on internet - purchase 5 properties - 50 spaceship parts - 50 letter scraps - walk and play with Chop (This was my first....) - Prostitute service - Booty call (easy to pick up girl with a private dance in the strip club) - hold up a store (Point your gun to the shopkeeper, receive the money, lose the cops) :)
  • There had better be a reward for all this that shows up in multiplayer rather than just an achievement or stupid UFO that shows up and u can't even fly or whatever. The shirt that says "I beat gta vice city 100 percent" or the unlimited rocket ammo inventory after 100 percent in gta 4 were better rewards. That's the problem with games now, there are no unlockables. Gta SA had great unlockables
  • Alright, I've checked my %100 checklist, and its still saying i need 2 more strangers and freaks and I already did the scrap letters but there are no more missions that are availible to me. Im really not sure where to even start looking for the other missions
  • #67 Had the same problem, but if you go to your phone. Then click on the icon on the top right (open missions). The first missions listed will be the ones you need to research. One that I had was I had the 13 parachutes. If you have that one you have to do all of them to unlock the last part of the mission. Also the other one you might be missing is the end of the tow truck. Which you will have to call Tonya to complete it.
  • Need help I only need two Hobbies and Pastimes left I have done Darts (won a couple of times) Golf (got credit for a game of 9 holes par) Tennis (won multiple times) 3 street races (1st place in all 3) no more have unlocked Flight school (passed every test) Off road races (placed 1st in every race) 3 triathalons (first in all 3) Yoga Hunting (completed one challenge) Arms (completed both ground and air) All bail bonds private dance at strip club Shooting range (all 5 done) Sea Races completed. What am I missing?
  • Just got it. It took me awhile to spawn the last two street races. You have to place first in the street race, then race in the first race again, finish and some chick should tell you about the next race. You also have to be Franklin to do them, has to be at night, and the last one you only have to place third. Can't wait for GTA Online
  • do i have to score 100% in every mission? If so i dont think ill be going after this achievement.
  • #71 no you don't you could get bronze in every mission. It is not a hard achievement it is just very time consuming All main missions (complete the game) All strangers and freaks 14 Random events All Misc Tasks 42 Hobbies and pastimes You can pause the game and look under stats, and see the 100% completion checklist. Also on your phone you can chose the icon in the top right and it will show you what you are missing as well.
  • Thank you #72, I wasn't aware of checking my phone for that information.
  • SPOILER ALERT - DON'T READ THIS COMMENT IF YOU HAVEN'T COMPLETE THE STORY Can you still get 100% after you beat the game when one of the characters died? (In my case Trevor)Because Trevor has some unique missions and I was wondering if his death could effect my quest to 100% game completion. I've fully completed VC, SA, LCS, VCS and 4, so I'm defiently going to complete this one! Msg me back if you have an answer to my question Thanks, Th4g x Ezi.
  • SPOILER #74 you should've picked option C because no one dies. I'm not sure if it's possible after doing the other options. Obviously you can't do any missions as the character who died so probably not.
  • golf is hurting like hell.. only thing i need is gold and knife flight.
  • Join my crew, FiveJerks OneSquirt... Plenty of open spaces so have you and your friends join. Thanks... kram3r024
  • at #75 yep you are right i had to play through again because i killed micheal took me 60:01:17 never got bored frustrated yes
  • thanks #72.
  • When I look at my 100% checklist it says that I've completed 6/20 strangers and freaks and I know that I've completed more then that. I've checked elsewhere and it says only certain strangers and freaks missions count towards 100% and out of that list I've completed 7 of them yet my 100% checklist still says 6/20. I have another save file where I've completed the same stuff and it says that I've completed 7/20. I think the 7th strangers and freaks mission from the list is Still Pulling Favors for Tonya. Is something glitched? Can I not get this achievement without going way back?
  • I think some of the strangers and freaks are glitched, I've done all the needed strangers and freaks missions for 100% and it says I only have 17/20 complete. Like the 3rd mission for Tonya, I know I beat it, but I can't replay it.
  • As a few people have stated this wasn't too hard just time consuming. The biggest pain in the ass for me was the stunt jumps. And a few of the knife flights were tricky. SPOILER ALERT: One thing that has been plaguing me, why the hell would anyone choose to kill one of the main characters? Why wouldn't you just choose C? I just don't get it...
  • And #81 have you done Spaceship Parts and Letter Scraps? And also the Parachute jumps for Dom! Mine read 17 until I did these 3 after the story.
  • After you do all of the parachute jumps, Go to the Land Act Damn and find the dog again, and Dom will be on the Damn. Watch the cutscene, and then pick up the parachute and jump after him (and survive) to complete his set of missions.
  • @ #84, Language! Don't you mean the darn? Like a darn that holds back water?
  • Erm... No. I mean Damn. A Damn that holds back water.
  • @86 I'm trying to understand how a damn would hold back water. If you said it loudly enough, and it prompted people to build a dam there, then I suppose that might work.
  • Gamertag: Papa Smurf U Crew Name: Rehab Crew Join us to victory in every single achievement(:
  • First time poster , long time user ... Advice please , I have played the darts and had a private dance with all 3 characters yet there still showing on my phone ? any ideas, I have completed the game so you cant spoilt anything
  • does anyone have a 2 day trial. I will return with a code from a game? if you do message me XxXELLIEXxX XD thankyou
  • Im having the same issue as some of you, I missing some of the strangers and freaks missions. Are these suppose to be done by a certain point and if not completed are you shafted? If thats the case why even let you continue playing after the main story if you cant go back to finish what you missed?
  • I have 100% but achievement didn't pop, anyone know why?
  • Any tips for golf? Thinking maybe I should have gotten into those Tiger Woods games at this point. It's all I have left to do and I'm about to bench the game for awhile (played through twice) since Online is so spotty
  • Just tried again this time with Michael (don't know if that matters) and got it first go -1 even though I sucked it up and bogey'd holes 3-5. I was using Trevor (bought the course with him) since his strength was maxed. Might be a factor also

  • I've got everything completed for the checklist but it still says 15/16 for Miscellaneous. I know what the list is: - 4 friend activities (darts, strip club, bar, cinema) - visit a cinema - 25 stunt jumps - 25 under the bridge - 8 knife flights - Purchase a vehicle on internet - purchase 5 properties - 50 spaceship parts - 50 letter scraps - walk and play with Chop - Prostitute service - Booty call - hold up a store I've got all the knife flights, under bridge, stunt jumps, papers, spaceship pieces, and I've done everything else on the list. I went to the cinema with all three together, then just two of them together, and then just as one. All I can figure is that I need to do all of the following with each character alone: - visit a cinema - purchase 5 properties
  • - Prostitute service - Booty call - hold up a store
  • I've bought all the properties, too. And now all three have had services rendered by a prostitute. Maybe every character is suppose to have 5 properties each? Is that possible?
  • Ok, so there is the check list on the social club website and the iFruit app.
  • Ok, how can I get 100%? I've just checked on the social club and I've done 51 out of 59 "Hobbies and Pastimes" so I have just 8 to do but one of them is "Stunt Plane Time Trials (Special and Collectors Edition Only)...I only have the standard edition...???
  • So damn Tedious!
  • @45 i finished the game and i didnt kill any of the characters you have a choice to kill one or let all of them survive
  • Check out Rocktstar's Social Club, everything with a bar on the left contributes to this achievement - but only those with the bar. This should help all those stuck at a high percentage and not knowing what that last thing to do is. Here's a link: socialclub.rockstargames.com/games/gtav/career/checklist
  • Hmmm. I just finished the last mission (with option C) yesterday. When I checked in at the R* site, I noticed I still have 3 main story missions left to complete - #67, 68, 69. I'm guessing I need to go back and do options A & B, but what's the other one? Any ideas?
  • IGN also has a checklist: http://www.ign.com/wikis/gta-5/100_Percent_Completion_Checklist
  • Looks like the easiest GTA to 100% :P
  • Omg Triathlon 3 is a pain in the ass. I was 22 minutes in, still doing the bike portion, when I ran over a bystander and killed her, which caused me to forfeit the race because I committed a crime -__- Also, is there something I'm missing for the store hold up? I've held up 5 stores now and it still isn't showing up on social club. I've lost the cops every time too. Any suggestions?
  • Ohhhhh I get it now. You can't rob a store that shows up on the map (ie. Binco, Barber Shop, etc) because the owner hides and a message pop up saying the store is closed. You have to go to a store that isn't on the map. I went to the convenience store on the east side of the map, in the same plaza as Ammunation 9/9. When you walk in while holding a gun, a message pops up saying you can rob the store by pointing your gun at the clerk. Get the money and boom, done :) wish I knew that before I robbed every goddamn store in town haha. Oh well made about $15,000 in the process :p
  • Working on this now!
  • It says I have 68/69 and I've completed the game. I already collected all of the collectables and everything too. Thank you so much Rockstar, I really want to spend the time to replay the campaign again with the chance that it will glitch on me again and by a miracle, if it doesn't glitch, I really want to spend the time to collect every f*cking spaceship part and letter scrap AGAIN.
  • Anybody that has 68/69 missions completed...your save is glitched...it happened when they were having problems with their online servers at the GTA online launch...if you tried to go into GTA online and were unsuccessful, whatever mission was next in line in your single player progression got skipped. At least that is what happened to me..
  • not all the side missions showed up for me in the game
  • guys please help I cant get the street races I have won the first race but only got a sliver medal as didn't get a decent time but still won the race do I need to get a gold medal to unlock the other street races
  • Three mission wont start and one of them is for the 100%, uncalculated risk the final dom mission. Guess im waiting for a patch.
  • ^^ u have to do all parachute missions.. No u dont need a gold metal to get the next race. wait till night time.. guys use rockstar social club page.. this is the easiest game to get 100% in by far
  • I would 100% this game again
  • i killed Trevor at last , can i still 100% the game ? or i should beat it again and let the 3 characters survive . im confused now ...
  • At 117 you need him. U should have chosen c. Only Treavor and Michael can so certain misthe sions. Kifliam storyline only Michael. Arms races mission only Treavor and. Pay attention to the story and choose c. People.
  • thx 118 .. indeed I still need him to unlock several achievements... gotta beat it once again and choose ending C
  • #118 is wrong - you don't need Michael or Trevor to get this achievement. This is because when it says '100%', it doesn't actually mean everything in the game - ONLY stuff that Franklin can complete, as listed at the top of this page. Michael's Kifflom stuff, Trevor's Rampages/Arms Trafficking etc don't count towards this 100% stat (hence why they get their own achievements). As people have said, use the Rockstar Social Club page (link up your game to the site). It lists EVERYTHING in the game, but only the icons which have the coloured bar to the left of them (look closely) count towards to '100%'.
  • I'm at 95.5% and only have 3 street races left. I'm missing something!
  • #121 Stick with Franki and Hao will text him after a few days to announce a new race. I just got this achievement this morning and I needed 3 races aswell. It takes a few days for him to text but just keep going to sleep and saving the game until it pops up.
  • i did this yesterday but i dint get the achievement cos relier that day i was doing the sky fall cheat soooooo annoyed!!!!!
  • this takes so f-ing long
  • Thanks for throwing this together and listing it so well. After my first playthrough i was scratching my head about what all i needed. Cheers!
  • Wait a min i left the stunt jumps for last and when I hit 25th jump the 100% acheivment popped I thought there was 50 unique jumps?
  • This is going to take a while :P
  • Ridiculous
  • Looking for achievement help! GT: Vixikori I'm online most of the day, and would very much like to get some of these Online ones out of the way, thanks guys!
  • It's a bit weird to have a 100% completion achievement where you don't have to do everything in the game......should be called 90 something percent completion.
  • I'm having a problem with the paparazzo missions, I can't get the last one to show up on the map. Is it bugged or am I not doing something.
  • Finally did it :P
  • I DID IT LEGIT BUT IF YOUR LOOKING TO ATTAIN THIS CHEEVO JUST DOWNLOAD A GAME SAVE SIMPLE AS
  • I'd love to try to 100 percent this but the racing stuff may be the difficult part for me and any other driving stuff. But someday I may give it a shot.
  • I am having trouble getting the last few Strangers and Freaks missions to show up. Can some of them be missed?
  • Jmiller, if you still need help, try calling Tonya. I think I was missing 3 or so missions and they were all part of the tow truck missions.
  • finally got it thank god
  • Going to need alot of dedication for this...
  • check out this website it helped me lot. Contact them and then they'll help you. they also have some vids and tricks u can do. http://irishprogamers.webs.com
  • Just finished RDR2 with 1005, now on to this one.
