Kifflom! Achievement

  • Kifflom!

     

    30

    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 will 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 $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.

    Tip: Wrapping a rubber band around the controller's thumbsticks will continuously move Michael 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; 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!

Comments
  • Wonder what this means...
  • Scientology reference?
  • End game achievement?
  • Hail Kifflom.
  • @2 scientology ref? then its prob to unlock tom cruise skin :p
  • The Epsilon Program is a Religion n in the GTA world, first referenced in San Andreas. It is a parody of Scientology. As we know, The Epsilon Program has been doing a lot the past months, on Twitter, & with a competition & their screensaver. I imagine this will be like a side quest involved in either joining their cult... or not Get it?
  • I'm guessing you have to spend a shat ton of money to unlock this.
  • What if there were groups of these Kifflom guys and you just have to run them over? Just like in GTA 2 and GTA 1.
  • The website of this holy Church : epsilonprogram dot com
  • I hope they really rip into scientology! there is so much material that they can use. read up on the clambake site to get a good idea of what is going on. the epsilon site is great also.
  • to start off this set of quests for the achivement go to the elipslion webiste on your phone(as michael only) and donated $500 to the website, that will give you the first ? on the map
  • Is there a monetary reward for this at the end? Without spoilers of how if its an option thing. But is there a way it results in a good payout?
  • @13 Without spoiling what happens, I'll just say that there are two different ways to complete the last part of this little side quest. One of them, there is an AMAZING reward. The other? Meh So YES
  • This was a annoying bitch to get. Just do the series of quests donating money and delivering things. At the end, just take the car and run, far more worth it.
  • guys add me Bluntz4breakfas if looking for chill crew to ride wid and rank up / do jobs. ((WE WILL DEF.

  • Is there any way to trick the time with the robe? I mean 10 days are as far as i know about 6 hours.
  • i hope this is really long winded achievement.. the story's running out for me and i dont wanna finish it too fast
  • @17 I just left my Xbox on when I went to sleep. Woke up and had the next mission unlocked. In GTA5, one minute (game time) = two seconds (real life). Which means a day goes by every 48 minutes. This means you have to wear the robes for 8 hours. I tried saving the game from sleeping in my characters bed, but that doesn't seem to advance time. And if you switch characters, they sometimes change clothes on their own, so the only way I see of doing it is what I did, or just keep playing as the same character for 8 hours straight.
  • Anyone else having trouble once you donate 500? I donated the money but haven't received any messages since
  • 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
  • Scrub my last comment, it eventually comes through a few days later but you have to go to the epsilon location first which will pop up when you are playing as Michael. After this you donate 5000 and then get an email with 5 cars to find
  • Well i already got the achievement but that's definately not it. You have to collect parts for Epsilon project. Found one on the peak of mount Chiliad. Does anyone have a idea where the rest is? :l
  • This is a bit of a bullshit achievement, you've basically got to give the group a ton of money to proceed. 5k, then 10k, then they want 4-5 cars which all together probably cost 500k, then 25k for the robes you have to wear for 10 ays in a row. Bullshit.
  • Instead of all the complaining, just be smart about it. Keep sleeping to pass the time, everytime you hit save, you can cancel it so it doesn't save but the time still passes.
  • i spent like amillion on this one. lol why are u ppl getting mad? do it after the story. U got racks then
  • @24 Then you end up being a very happy guy when the questline is done if you complete it the "awesome" way..
  • ( SPOILER ),,,,,,,,,,,,, Just a little tip when you get to the 5 miles in the dessert Part, Get yourself some tape and tape the analog stick across and get a ( penny, Dollar, Euro ) and tape it down on the A Button then just go do something for 30 40 mins, this means you will not have to keep button bashing through the desert. :D
  • jus sleep off the days. u think this one sucks. wait till u do the sub parts mission! 30 parts for crap
  • PS y cant u date women in this game? major fail by rockstar.. hookers get boring
  • I have delivered the 5 cars to the garage in Vinewood and I'm still waiting for the follow up email after at least a week of in game time! Any ideas why it is taking so long??
  • sorry for the spoliers at the end of game you have the choice if u want to kill Michael so I did , so now does that mean I wont be able to get this ach. unless I start a new game any ideeeeeeas ???
  • @32 You need Michael alive to get this so reload a last save or start again
  • @32 y would u pick A? go back and pick C. u wont worry about missing anyone..(trying not to spoil)
  • Should I side with the epsilons at the end or not?
  • 05cantwellt - I had this too, if you find that it is taking a long time for another mission to start just donate another $500 and you will hear from them shortly.....
  • I also have another tip For any one who hasn't done this yet, "SPOILER".............................................................................. When you come to the final mission when Michael has got too deliver the money to the location make sure you do a quick save before hand and carry on with the mission as normal making sure you deliver the money and get a really bad reward "Cough Cough" Say no more.... when you complete it and get the Achievement, reload your save and then when you are told to follow the car in front take off with the money and earn yourself a great prize. Booooooo Yahhhh
  • Anyone know a good place or region of the game where the Tornado car spawns alot. Found two cars and the bike in parked locations and bought the fourth vehical online. Pulling my hair out trying to find that damn tornado.
  • @DJKDEE Thanks for the tip :)
  • @38 the tornado seemed to spawn a lot in the driveways of vinewood hills for me. as did just about every other car needed for this achievement
  • The Tornado can be found parked outside a garage near 'tennis 2/6' on your map, where the road bends round, best I can do to describe it
  • How do you get this achievement? Is this a quest?
  • Does anybody know what happens when you collect all the parts for epsilon? Theres no guide or anything yet, there have to be something awesome!
  • #30 You kind of can, go and get 'liked' at the strip joint, then you can have fun with the stripper away from the club, haha
  • I've delivered the 5 cars and about 5 days have passed but I still don't have the new email. Is there a certain amount of days that need to pass?
  • @45 I'm having this issue as well - I've also donated money through the website multiple times and still no email I'm worried that it's glitched and can't be triggered - I know it isn't part of 100%
  • @46 I looked at the Rockstar website and they are aware of the problem as there are a lot of people having this issue. Here is the link to that support page http://support.rockstargames.com/hc/en-us/articles/200299446-Kifflom-mission-not-proceeding-after-delivering-5-cars-in-GTA-V Hope this helps everyone
  • For the part with the robes, you can sleep it off, but one day takes 4 "sleep" sessions...
  • Hi guys here's everything in this 4 part video edited down to everything you need with subtitles as well as links at the end of each video to the next video.easiest guide on here enjoy!!!! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8vqmXNe8a6k
  • @45 Same issue here, I must've played about 10 hours real time since I delivered the 5 cars, and probably donated about 50k to them, still nothing
  • @50 @46 I went ahead and stated a new game and as soon as Michael became available I stated the Epsilon quests and so far ive had no problem
  • for the robes i wore them while i got all spaceship parts nuclear parts and submarine parts didnt even have to worry about it otherwise no probs love the present though lol
  • I cant get the robes to spawn in the closet. I already bought them and got the email confirmation and saved 8 times and nothing
  • this is so annoying, I've delivered the 5 cars that they wanted, and ive been waiting bloody age for the email for the next mission. ive been waiting about 3 days now (not in game days) and its not giving me the email. fucking game.
  • This took ages. For spending ten days in the robes you need to save properly (sleeping) 40 times, took me 15 minutes. To run 5 miles in the desert just rubber band your controller to run in circles (see this video - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sOBHTw2Dwqk). The last mission is up to you but I did the right thing to make sure it popped, apparently if you make off with the money it still pops and you get a fair bit of cash so do whatever.
  • Does anyone know if you need to do this for the 100%?
  • I just finished this achievement and yes, it is a pain in the ass. I can however give you a few tips that I've found very helpful. A lot of these tips are mentioned above but I would like to give my experience. - After several Epsilon missions you are required to donate money on their website. Be aware that it could take several ingame days before another epsilon icon appears on your map after you have done that. Be patient or skip the ingame time by sleeping in your bed (you don't have to save, just hit B). - Skipping the ingame time by sleeping is also a useful strategy for the mission were you are required to wear the Epsilon robes for ten days. You wil have to repeat the sleeping process for a lot of times, but trust me, it beats the alternative. - When you get the mission to
  • - When you get the mission to find the exclusive vehicles for Marnie, dont purchase any online! You will only waste a lot of money if you do, and all the vehicles have fixed spawn points. Use this map instead http://i.imgur.com/eehkP7W.jpg . I have used this map as well, and it is a 100% accurate. - When you get the mission to walk 5 miles in the desert, I recommend using a rubber band to hold your left analog stick to one side or the other and do something usefull / fun, 5 miles is a long f-ing distance. If you do decide to walk the 5 miles yourself, stay in a small area. The edges of the area are very random and if you step outside it you have to do the whole thing over again. Yes it has happend to me at 4+ miles.
  • - (Possible spoiler to the final Epsilon mission). When you do finaly reach the final Epsilon mission, I would highly recommend to NOT follow the Epsilon instructions to deliver the car. INSTEAD make a run for it with the car and outrun or outgun the Epsilon guards comming after you. Trust me, it is worth it. If you run you will get a shitload of money as well as the achievement, and you don't have the feeling that all of this Epsilon bullshit was for nothing. The alternative ending sucks butts, believe me. That was about it. If you want to know anything else, don't hesitate to message me. Good luck and Kifflom, Brother-Brother / Brother-Sister.
  • @56 You do not need this for 100%, mine is glitched after the 5 car mission, but I got the 100% achievement and stat the other day.
  • @ #24 I have to say I couldn't disagree more. This was one of my favourite achievements tbh. I thought the whole idea was hilarious. And was great fun! My tips: * Robes: Don't do the saving a thousand times idea. Just wear the epsilon robes whilst your either flying around revealing the map for the 'Los Santos Sightseer' cheevo or doing the stunt jumps. this killed at least 6 days for me. * 5 mile run: Not as bad as people are making out. Just run up and down the airstrip. It's just under 0.5 miles so you need to do it about 11 times. It took me about 10 minutes. (NOTHING compared to the button bashing escapade that is the 3rd Triathlon! - Holy shit that was a nightmare) * It cost me about half a million to buy 3 of the cars. I got the Dinka T from the Lifeinvader car park. And
  • ... The Tornado from near Grove St. Drive a classic or muscle car to help this spawn. (If it helps, it's the car that looks like a 1955 Chevvy Bel Air) With the tail fins on the back. I'm not sure if it's a fact or not but I saw a lot more of these spawning after triggering the 'Assuming The Truth' mission.
  • One more thing, @59, You can just drive off with the money but to get gold you have to deliver the car to the chopper, then kill all the guards/security. It's easy. And as I said, great fun lol.
  • I wonder how many people got Carpal Tunnel syndrome because of this achievement... But despite the tedious tasks i really liked the humour in this one.
  • I really hate this opt mission. The tasks are as inane as the cult itself! seriously... (SPOILERS) Get 5 cars; keep the robe on for 10 consecutive days; "donate" money; run 5 miles in the dessert w/ the robe on?! Could Rockstar have made a more creative/ exciting side mission?
  • Just so everyone is clear, DO NOT LET THE CHOPPER LEAVE WITH THE MONEY. Or else you will just get a rusty tractor. STEAL THE FUNDS AND KILL THE SECURITY for a tidy payout.
  • this achievement is bullshit, i can't get the damn robes to show up in the closet. ARGH!
  • The recent update fixed this mission for me it seems
  • I'm getting really pissed of about this because it's the last thing i need for 100%. After I had dropped the airplane off to Jimmy Boston, I can't get the next mission to pop up. I'm not sure if I have to just do the 5 miles now, but I definitely didn't go to the mission by Trevor's house and watch the cutscene. PLEASE HELP!!! THIS IS DRIVING ME INSANE!!!
  • Anyone else having trouble with the Exercising the Truth mission popping on their map? I've gotten through the car delivery without issue, but more than a week has passed in-game, I've switched characters multiple times, completed missions, side missions, random encounters,killed my character, even went to the spot on the map where the mission is to start and still it won't load. This whole series of missions is totally f'ed. Rockstar dropped the ball on this one. You'd think they would thoroughly test any missions directly tied to achievements/trophies.
  • The epsilon program symbol popped up on my screen and I couldn't be bothered doing it, I went back to do it and then I couldn't, it's right after you do the airplane mission
  • The robes aren't appearing for me. I've bought them twice and it's been about 2 weeks in game time... anybody else have this problem?
  • @ #72 I am having the same problem. The robes are not showing up. My only assumption is that it is a glitch that probably has been fixed with an update. However, I do not have XBOX Live at the moment so I am pretty much screwed. Anyone have any tips or experiencing this as well?
  • Update: I went ahead and bought the robes a second time and they delivered. Try this if you are having trouble.
  • I also had problems with the robe delivery, I ordered four seperate times and waited several weeks (in game time) then suddenley I had a text to say they had been delivered. I am now doing the spaceship collections as Michael. I would advise saving regularly and not changing characters as Michael will change his clothes (he did this when I returned form multi-player) if so just load last saved game.
  • Just finished this one, if you can do this, then stunt jumps are nothing.. that's next for me possibly. Didn't think this mission would take 2 hours
  • I never got any emails, however I went ahead and donated the $500 and $5,000, collected the cars, then did the mission after that with the device thing. I never got an email about the $10,000 either, but I went ahead and donated it just like I had done previously. But now the next symbol isn't coming up on the map. It's been several weeks in game time. Did this happen to anyone else?
  • For wearing the robes part. If you have any strippers for contacts, use a booty call. That actually advances time a good 8-10 hrs compared to saving which is 6 for Michael.
  • I was wondering if anyone was having a issue with the last mission not appearing. I have done everything the last things I have done is the walking for 5 miles and got two phones calls but he hasn't asked me to meet him. Someone please help
  • I was wondering if anyone was having a issue with the last mission not appearing. I have done everything the last things I have done is the walking for 5 miles and got two phones calls but he hasn't asked me to meet him. Someone please help
  • FUCKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKKK THISSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS GAMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i been waiting forever for this to advance, how can they patch one part of the missions from not showing up, yet not patch another part of the quests. rockstar has a bunch of idiots working for them. i dont understand how jacked up this game is yet there spending all there time with the online. f the online they shouldnt of launched it till the single player was fixed the online is shit.
  • Really hated this one.... Kifflom
  • I didnt have enough money for the final mission at first, I finally got enough money and now it wont show up :(
  • I've got the same as everyone else it seems, missions won't load which is uber annoying!! like people have said this is a massive faux pas on rockstars part
  • When u have to wear the robes for those 10 days, it is exualy possible to sleep those day out. Just keep re-entering ur bed to safe the game and then make sure 11 days pas by. U should get a message that u have worn the clothes for 10 day by then.
  • The running part was super annoying!!
  • This achievement will be the death of me. I did the car mission around the part of the game where Trevor comes to Los Santos, and the next mission wouldn't show. I then proceeded to complete the rest of the story and still nothing! And Rockstar's support team fails to help me in any way!
  • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1uPS3JH9i0 You won't have to spend the money on the cars! Found this really helpful!
  • Interesting achievement although I'm pretty sure it's glitchy. *SPOILER BELOW* I've delivered the plane from Fort Zanaco and Jimmy Boston has said he'll be in touch, yet it's been about a month in-game and I still haven't got the next Epsilon icon to appear on my radar :/
  • Everytime I try to log in Ito the site it says "sorry not found" wtf
  • The save trick to wear the robe for 10 days took me about 20 minutes. I kept dozing off while doing it because it was a tad bit boring. Also, running around the desert took about 30 minutes. I just had him run around in circles and something holding down my A button. Make sure you check in on him at about 15 minutes as my controller turned off at that time. Doing it legit probably wouldn't be as bad as the third triathlon, though.
  • This was so boring but at least kifflom makes a lot of sense.
  • This achievement is really just made to annoy people. but its not really that hard.
  • Wish i had checked this thread before playing my first run through, had to totally replay the game because not having this bothered me. Thank you for explaining it so clearly as well, cheers!
  • I attempted the gold medal on the last mission and it was a huge fuck you rockstar for it, so instead I ran out of the city they never gave up so went into the beach down this hill got out of the car and let the two men have their last moment on the beach.
  • Every time i go to purchase the Robe, i get a message saying they are sold out right now. any idea how to get around this?
  • for the time spent on this, 30 points barely seems enough but the in game payoff is well worth it
  • I was doing run 5 mile mission in the desert, at some point when i hit 4 mile mark , a blue dot came up on the map, and i ran towards it , hwen i got close, some weird shit happened, i got strip naked and an appeard tight up on the train tracks with no clothes for the missiom, so FUCK! i thought and did the mission all over again :D
  • This is one of the most weirdest achievement I ever captured...but interesting.
  • Sounds like I'll need to gather some money to do this first :-O
  • TIP: When wearing robe for 10 days, switch to Trevor and go to bed. Trevor sleeps for a longer period of time than Michael or Franklin, aprox 12 hours. Do it 20 times, you donĀ“t even have to save, just back out of the save screen. Then switch back to Michael and continue the mission.
