Rockstar are spoiling us in this last month as we build up to the greatest game ever made (I have said it before and I am not afraid to say it again.).
Now, whether they wanted them to or not, the achievement list has been confirmed by various websites. The Trophy list is the same for PS3 as it always is, but the achievement list has been leaked for Xbox 360 in the last day or so.
Read on for all the single player achievements and click the ‘Next’ button for all the extensive ones leveled at Multiplayer. One thing is for sure from this list, we are in for a treat:
Solid Gold, Baby! (50 points) – Earn 70 Gold Medals on Missions and Strangers and Freaks.
The second biggest achievement on the list, this one is clearly all about getting the highest ratings for all the main missions/side quests in GTA V. Similar to The Ballad of Gay Tony, it would appear (from this evidence alone) that you will have the opportunity to replay missions in order to obtain a higher rating. If you played The Ballad of Gay Tony, you will know: This one will NOT be easy.
Career Criminal (100 points) – Attain 100% Game Completion.
Sometime around Christmas, we will all hopefully start to hit this one. Actually judging on the size of Los Santos and the above point, expect this one to take you way into 2014.
San Andreas Sightseer (30 points) – Explore all of Los Santos and Blaine County.
Just try and stop us Rockstar. This one could literally mean getting from point A to B all the way through to Z. Or it could be much more complicated, maybe you need to collect something from each area to trigger an this bad boy.
All’s Fare in Love and War (10 points) – Purchase Downtown Cab Co. and complete a private fare.
A friend of mine recently mentioned that he cannot wait to buy a cab company and become a legitimate business man in GTA. Well, it looks like his wish may just come true. Most just want to jump off Mount Chilliad on a bicycle or crash a plane into a police station but hey, each to their own.
TP Industries Arms Race (10 points) – Purchase McKenzie Field Hangar and win the arms race.
Remember the screen shot of the plane that’s engine is on fire? Remember the motorcycle that seems to be chasing it across Blaine County? Trevor in the plane that has come from McKenzie Field Hangar? Franklin on the bike taking part in a race to the drop point? Like most on this list, this is purely guess work. But of course, if you have reached the end of this sentence, you are one minute away from GTA V. Sorry for wasting your time.
Multi-Disciplined (30 points) – Attain a gold medal in all applicable hobbies and pastimes.
This one will be for the die hards. Rockstar have never been kind with their achievements, and this is especially true of GTA IV and its expansions. The Ballad of Gay Tony (‘Bear Fight’ – Impossible…) & The Lost and Damned (‘Got Wood?’ Arduous to say the least…) are particularly guilty of flexing Rockstar’s no nonsense attitude to making you work for your geek points.
From Beyond the Stars (15 points) – Collect and return all spaceship parts.
Trevor’s pal ‘Ron’ looks pretty ‘conspiracy theorist’ doesn’t he? This achievement harks back to the days of The Truth in San Andreas. Who knows, maybe with all parts you will get to fly one. Don’t hold your breathe though kids, as silly as this game is in comparison to GTA IV, Saints Row it ain’t.
A Mystery, Solved (15 points) – Solve the mystery of Leonora Johnson.
This sounds like a story achievement to me. Not much is given but if it has an achievement I am guessing it is a string of missions leading up to finding out the fate of this Leonora character. Buried in the desert, that’s where my money lies. Or maybe Leonora Johnson is the name of a ship in the deepest depths of the Alamo sea – How did it sink maybe? Just one of many things for you to find out.
Waste Management (15 points) – Purchase the old dock and collect all nuclear waste.
Yet another collectible mission that comes from purchasing property. Sounds both time consuming and rewarding (GTA and the word ‘Nuclear’ must peak some interest, even if it is ‘waste’) and judging by the fact that we all want to live in this world for a long time to come, those are two things that could not be more welcome.
Red Mist (20 points) – Complete all Rampages.
They are back! Kill twenty Kifflom members with a Machine Gun in under 30 seconds/Blow up 50 cars in two minutes/<Insert your own psychotic GTA fantasy here>
Show Off (30 points) – Complete all Stunt Jumps.
A given really, but judging on the size of this world, here is another one that will take a LOT of time. So long as they kept the slow motion and the opportunity to jump out mid air from IV, I am all over this one.
Kifflom! (30 points) – Complete your path to enlightenment… or not.
Kifflom, for those who don’t obsess over made up websites for hours on end trying to sweat out the slightest nuggets of information, is GTA V’s answer to Scientology. Join them and become a mentalist or simply don’t join. Or go on a mad rampage killing as many members as possible, you decide what you think ‘…or not’ means.
Three Man Army (20 points) – Survive 3 minutes on at least a 3 star Wanted Level with all three characters together off mission.
This sounds fairly easy on the face of things, so long as it doesn’t mean simultaneously. Switching between Trevor in his pick up, Michael in a flash sports car and Franklin on a motorbike may sound easy, but if it does mean at the same time, then we better hope that the computer can handle the other character when off screen. Otherwise, it is gonna’ get frantic.
Out of Your Depth (5 points) – You’re gonna need a bigger boat…
Come on, you have all seen Jaws. 5 Points? Not a lot – All you need to do is get eaten by a shark for this one to ‘plop’ up.
Altruist Acolyte (5 points) – Deliver an unsuspecting victim to the Altruist Cult.
Some insane cult (that isn’t Kifflom) needs a sacrifice? This sounds like a job for Trevor.
A Lot of Cheddar (20 points) – Spend a total of $200 million across all three characters.
Wow, that really is a lot of cheddar. In the words of Joe Cabot: Let’s go to work…
Trading Pure Alpha (10 points) – Make a profit over your total investments in the stock market.
Sounds boring, but with rumor suggesting you can ‘manipulate’ the markets in your favor – Taking out the competition maybe – Getting this one sounds rewarding.
Pimp My Sidearm (10 points) – Fully mod a weapon.
Cannot wait to get stuck in to some weapon customization. Particularly silencers. Imagine popping a few cops from a high rise building with a silenced sniper rifle – Those chumps won’t know what hit ‘em.
Wanted: Alive Or Alive (10 points) – Deliver a bail bond target alive.
Taken straight of the successfully popular Red Dead Redemption with it’s Bounty Hunter ‘Wanted’ posters, it is making a modern day return in GTA V. So far (according to one of the trailers) this only seems to be a job for Trevor, but who knows, maybe Michael and Franklin will also want to get involved in the Jackie Brown-esque bail bond targets.
Los Santos Customs (10 points) – Fully mod a vehicle.
The idea of customizing vehicles is nothing new to GTA thanks to San Andreas, but with the advent of next gen tech, hopefully you wont just have your car disappear if you stray to far. Apparently, there is also an ‘impound’ in GTA V. Get arrested/Wasted and have your pink Comet taken off you? Go buy it back.
Close Shave (20 points) – Complete all Under the Bridge and Knife Flight challenges.
Under the bridge must be tailored to flying your plane under all the bridges in the game, similar to the helicopter achievement in GTA IV (which was a bloody nightmare), but who knows what the situation with ‘Knife Flight’ is. Comment below because this one has me stumped.
Off the Plane (5 points) – GTA Online: Complete the Introduction.
Now we reach online. GTA Online is embargoed for 2 weeks upon release of V, hopefully to iron out all kinks and make it perfection.
Everyone has to go through the introduction and it wouldn’t surprise me if you get off the plane from Liberty City/Vice City trying to make a new life for yourself, go straight and yada yada ya. Teach me how to play tennis, make money and race cars, and then direct me towards the closest Ammunation. Thanks Rockstar.
Three-Bit Gangster (10 points) – GTA Online: Reach Rank 25.
So begins three of the most self explanatory achievements on the list.
Making Moves (30 points) – GTA Online: Reach Rank 50.
Above the Law (80 points) – GTA Online: Reach Rank 100.
And we have reached the end of that chapter. Make no mistake, this will be the last achievement most of you will get.
Numero Uno (20 points) – GTA Online: Obtain first place in all competitive game types.
Boat/air/car/bike races – Deathmatch/Team Deathmatch/King of the Hill etc etc. This could be a long time coming too.
The Midnight Club (20 points) – GTA Online: Use custom vehicles to win 5 races.
You and that pink Comet will take over the world. The chavy world of street racing that is.
Unnatural Selection (20 points) – GTA Online: Complete all 10 waves of a Survival.
This one is news to most, survival against what? Police? Other human enemies? SWAT? The Army? Zomb – No, don’t be stupid.
Backseat Driver (10 points) – GTA Online: Direct a driver to 1st place as co-driver in Rally Mode.
Rally mode? You mean racing alone with someone sitting next to you giving directions. Or, more accurately speaking, a pal driving shotgun he/she babbles in your ear about how much he/she loves this game while fiddling with the radio knobs.
Run Like The Wind (20 points) – GTA Online: Survive for a day with a Bounty on your head.
Not news this one, if you go on a mad rampage and kill other players, a bounty can be placed on your head. We saw this in Red Dead and it worked fantastically.
Clean Sweep (10 points) – GTA Online: Finish a Gang Attack without dying and kill at least 10 enemies.
This maybe one of those achievements you will want to get out the way early in Multiplayer. It may get pretty difficult to obtain once skill levels hit the roof.
Decorated (50 points) – GTA Online: Earn 30 Platinum Awards.
So single player gets gold and multiplayer has Platinum? Talk about longevity.
Stick Up Kid (10 points) – GTA Online: Hold up all 20 Stores.
Cannot wait to hold up a liquor store and then speed off with a bag of cash. And then do it again another 19 times.
Enjoy Your Stay (20 points) – GTA Online: Participate in everything Los Santos has to offer.
Play every game mode and buy everything possible maybe?
Crew Cut (5 points) – GTA Online: Complete a Job as a member of a Crew.
Crews will play a huge part in GTA V multiplayer. May I suggest you start forming yours now – You are going to come up against some stiff competition looking to earn GTA rep.
Full Refund (10 points) – GTA Online: Kill the thief that mugged you.
This one is open to a lot of interpretation. Is it in relation to a certain game mode, maybe a cash grab team deathmatch where you can respawn and take your dollar back? Or is it something more complicated and ambitious? Maybe you can rob other crews. Only time will tell…
Dialling Digits (5 points) – GTA Online: Call for gang backup for the first time.
So besides crews does this one also mean you create your own little gang of NPCs to back you up against the big boys of Los Santos? Or maybe it is as simple as inviting a friend into a crew.
American Dream (10 points) – GTA Online: Own an Apartment, Garage and an Insured Vehicle.
This is the big one for online and certainly the most appealing aspect. Earn enough dollar and you can have your very own apartment, where you can kick back, plan robberies or just punch each other in the face. Then there is the garage, already showcased in the Online trailer as something that looks pretty special. Like Tony Stark’s garage, you can keep all you prides and joy safely locked away in a beautiful white garage, except you know, you’re not Iron Man.
Then there is the ‘insured vehicle’ part of the achievement: Proof that a car lasts for as long as you want it to, even if it does get destroyed. Bet you don’t feel so bad for envisioning driving a friend up mount chilliad only to bail out and watch him fall helplessly to his death in your pink Comet now, eh?
