INTRODUCTION / ================ I decided to write this guide because it might be useful for players that are trying to unlock some or all the achievements in the PC version of Grand Theft Auto IV. Just remember to be be connected to Games for Windows LIVE while playing, otherwise you won't unlock any achievement. Almost everything on this guide comes from my personal experience, as I do unlock all achievements before writing the guide. However, I base myself on some sources to be sure that what is written here is as correct as possible. Everyone that helps me (directly or indirectly) is properly credited. Having said that, I hope you find this guide useful. Thank you for reading. Hydro_PT ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 2.1. STRUCTURE OF THE GUIDE ~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I try to make a good structure for the guide, so that way you can quickly find what you need. Even though most browsers nowadays feature an easy-to-use search function, this section will help you understand how I structured the guide, in case you have any trouble. All achievements are organized in alphabetic order. I use their official name to organize them alphabetically. So, in the first line you have the name of the achievement, its official description and its Gamerscore. Below that I give a detailed explanation on how to unlock it. Here's an example: ...................................................................... . . . Key To The City - Achieve 100% in "Game progress" statistic.  . . . . Explanation on how to get this achievement goes here. . . . ...................................................................... You can refer to the following page to see a list of all achievements: -> http://www.xbox360achievements.org/game/grand-theft-auto-iv/achievements ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 2.2 CHEATS ~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Be aware that some cheats disable certain achievements. To prevent this from happening, DO NOT save your game after you use cheats. If you save the game the achievement will be permanently blocked on that savegame, so you will need to to start a new one to unlock it. Here are the 2 cheats that block achievements: - Health & Armour - Blocks the achievement "Finish Him". - Remove Wanted Level - Blocks the achievement "Walk Free". =============================================================================== 3.

ABOUT THE GAME / ================== - TITLE: Grand Theft Auto IV - PLATFORM: Microsoft Windows - RELEASE DATE: 3 December 2008 - DEVELOPERS: Rockstar North and Rockstar Toronto - PUBLISHER: Rockstar Games - WEBSITE: www.rockstargames.com/IV - ACHIEVEMENTS: 50 - TOTAL GAMERSCORE: 1000 points =============================================================================== 5. ACHIEVEMENTS GUIDE / ====================== ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 5.1. SINGLEPLAYER ACHIEVEMENTS  = 860 (G) ~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Assassin's Greed â Complete all 9 assassin missions.  To get this achievement you just need to complete all 9 missions for the "Fixer" contact on the phone. You will get access to this contact after you have completed the mission "Truck Hustle" for Phill Bell. An icon will appear on the map indicating the place where these missions begin. A weapon and body armour will be provided to you once a mission starts. All you have to do in these missions is eliminate various targets located on the map. If you need help to complete any of them, just check the link below. The missions are given randomly, so the first one on that page may not be your first one ingame. -> http://www.gta4.net/high-end-assassinations/ Chain Reaction â You must blow up 10 vehicles in 10 seconds.  Go to Autoeroticar in Alderney (if you donât know where it is, check the link I provide). There will be around 10 vehicles in there, just make sure they are all close to each other (park them inside if necessary). Be sure there are at least 10, and once they are all parked, throw some grenades and fire one or two RPGs. It should be enough to blow all the cars in less than 10 seconds and unlock the achievement. Don't use any cheat, or this won't work. -> http://img220.imageshack.us/img220/6214/autoeroticara1.jpg Cleaned The Mean Streets â Capture 20 criminals through the police computer.  To get this achievement you need to enter a police car, use the computer, go to "current crimes" and activate one of the 3 missions there. Drive to the point marked on the map and capture (kill) the criminals. Do this 20 times and you get the achievement. You don't need to do them all in a row. Courier Service â Complete all 10 package delivery jobs.  After you meet Little Jacob and do all missions for him, you will be able to do some work for him. Select the "Job" option on the phone and he will place a car near his cafÃ© with a drug package inside. Just enter in the car to grab the package and then go to the desired place. Be careful that these missions have a timer, a gang or the cops waiting for you. Jacob gives you a car every time you go get a package, but you donât need to use it. If you want you can bring your own vehicle, enter Jacob's car, retrieve the package, get back to your vehicle and drive to the location marked on the map. Do all 10 deliveries and you get the achievement. Dare Devil â Complete 100% of the unique stunt jumps.  There are 50 stunts jumps in the game that you must complete to unlock this achievement. The jumps are not marked on the map, so you must find them for yourself. Usually there is some kind of ramp, and once you begin the jump, the camera will turn into a cinematic camera in slow motion (you can still control the vehicle, though). The jumps require you to land on a certain place with at least two wheels on the ground. If you have problems finding or completing a jump, refer to the link below, which is a map that shows you all locations and a video of all stunt jumps. -> http://www.gta4.net/map/?z=1&c=stunt Dial B for Bomb â Unlock the special ability of phoning for a bomb to be placed.  This special ability is offered by Packie. Go out and do activities with him until he likes you enough (above 75%). Once he calls you offering the service, the achievement unlocks. Driving Mr. Bellic â Unlock the special ability of taxi.  This special ability is offered by Roman. Go out and do activities with him until he likes you enough (above 60%). Once he calls you offering the service, the achievement unlocks. Endangered Species â Collect every hidden package in the game.  The hidden packages are pigeons scattered throughout Liberty City. They are standing still all the time, even when it is raining. They make a particular noise when you are near them and they also have an orange glow around them. Find and kill all 200 pigeons and the achievement will unlock. To prevent the entrance on the "199 Pigeons Club", I recommend killing 20 pigeons, then save the game, kill more 20, save the game and so on. In case you miss one pigeon, at least you know it is one of the last 20 you searched for. If you keep going without saving and you miss 1 pigeon, you will have to check all 200 locations again. So, be absolutely sure that you do kill each pigeon before advancing to the next one. To know the exact location of each bird, check the link below: -> http://www.gta4.net/map/?lat=-2.4609375&lng=2.8125&z=1&c=pigeon Fed the Fish â Complete the mission "Uncle Vlad".  This achievement is related to the storyline, so you shouldn't have any problem unlocking it. If you have, this walkthrough will certainly be useful: -> http://www.gta4.net/missions/chapter-one.php#uncle-vlad Finish Him â Complete 10 melee counters in 4 minutes.  To get this achievement I recommend going to the Helitours site. There are plenty of pedestrians in there and the police takes some time to get to you. What you need to do is start a fight with someone and then, when that person is going to hit you with a punch, press the key you use to dodge them (SPACE key is the default one) and then use the attack key (LMB is default). If timed correctly, Niko will avoid the punch and then perform a counter that will knock the enemy off. You need to perform 10 counters like that in 4 minutes. If you need health in the middle of the process, just buy a hot dog from the entrance of the Helitours site. In case you die or get busted, keep fighting once you respawn back in the hospital/police station, because the timer won't be reseted. For a better description of this fighting technique, check the link below: -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWY0KvVtKx4 Full Exploration â Unlock all the islands.  Nothing much to say here. During the main story missions you will automatically unlock all the islands. Once Alderney is unlocked, this achievement is yours. Genetically Superior â Come first in 20 singleplayer street races.  After you meet Brucie and you do the mission "No.1", you can do races for him. Select the "Race" option on the phone and he will hit you up with one. There are 9 in total, 3 in each island (Broker/Dukes/Bohan, Algonquin and Alderney). The races are easy and you just need to finish in 1st place, so drive safely. Donât kill the other drivers or the race will be over. To get the achievement you must win 20 races, so you will need to repeat some of them in order to get it. Be aware that you must finish all 9 races to get the opportunity to repeat them. If Brucie tells you that there are no races going on, move to another island, because this means that you have already completed all 3 races on that island. Once you have won them all for the first time, Brucie will text you a message, saying that you can repeat whichever race you want. Gobble Gobble â Score 3 strikes in a row, a turkey, in 10-pin bowling.  Go to a bowling place with a friend and start a game. Choose the first lane and then take two full steps to the left. Give your mouse a good speed forward, but keep it straight. It is vital to keep the ball going straight, or else you are going to miss. You need to do a strike 3 times in a row using this technique, that it, take down all 10 pins in a single shot. It may take a bit of practice, but it isnât really hard to do this. You don't need to win the game, nor it is necessary to be a full game (it can be a half-game). Gracefully Taken â Complete the mission "I'll Take Her".  This achievement is related to the storyline, so you shouldn't have any problem unlocking it. If you have, this walkthrough will certainly be useful: -> http://www.gta4.net/missions/chapter-three.php#ill-take-her Half Million â Reach a balance of $500,000.  A pretty self-explanatory achievement. There are two missions in the game that alone give you $500,000 ($250,000 each). Just donât spend much money buying weapons or paying visits to the hospital and you should get this one easily. Impossible Trinity - Complete the mission "Museum Piece".  This achievement is related to the storyline, so you shouldn't have any problem unlocking it. If you have, this walkthrough will certainly be useful: -> http://www.gta4.net/missions/chapter-three.php#museum-piece It'll Cost Ya â Complete a taxi ride without skipping from one island to another.  This is one of the easiest achievements to get. Just enter in a taxi at the start of a bridge in Broker, for example, and set the waypoint in the end of the same bridge in Algonquin. Donât skip the trip and you get the achievement. Key to the City â Achieve 100% in the "Game Progress" statistic.  Nothing special to say here. There is a lot of stuff you need to do in order to achieve 100% completion. If you need help finding what it takes to do it, check the link below. To see your current progress go to the ingame statistics. -> http://www.gta4.net/100-percent-completion-checklist/ King of QUB3D â Beat the High Score in QUB3D.  The QUB3D is a minigame created by Rockstar much similar to Tetris To get this achievement all you have to do is beat highest score, which is 10950 points. You can find the QUB3D machine on the Strip Club in Bohan, the Modo shop in Algonquin and behind the stage inside the Perestroika Club in Broker. Before start playing, watch the tutorial to see how the game works, because it is not equal to Tetris. You may need a few tries to get it done, but it isnât really to reach 11000 points. After this you can either lose the game or keep playing, your choice. You canât play this game while dating someone or doing a mission. Liberty City (5) â After meeting all possible friends, the ones left alive all like you above 90%..  The following achievement needs to be explained with a bit more detail, and it contains a major spoiler in the game history. If you don't want to spoil your game, don't read this one. Even if you are interested in this achievement, come here only at the beginning of the mission "The Holland Play" for Playboy X and before the last mission, when you decide the final (there are two finales). *********************************** SPOILER *********************************** You can have a total of 5 friends during the entire game. They are: Brucie, Packie, Little Jacob, Roman and Dwayne. The first 3 you donât have a choice, they will become your friends during the main storyline missions. However, you have to make two decisions during the story. The decisions are: - Kill Playboy X or Dwayne. If you choose to kill Dwayne, you don't need to make him like you more than 90%. However, if you leave him alive, you must make him like you more than 90%. - Let Roman alive or dead. Depending on the final that you choose, Roman will either live or be killed. If he dies, you don't need to make him like you more than 90%, but if you leave him alive, you must also raise his friendship to 90% to unlock this achievement. *********************************** SPOILER *********************************** Liberty City Minute â Complete the story missions in less than 30 hours.  To get this achievement you only need to finish all the main storyline missions in less than 30 hours of gameplay (real life time). Avoid dating your friends, don't do side missions, use a cab if you need to travel a long distance and skip all cut-scenes. You can check your current playing time on the game statistics in the pause menu. I recommend you do this on a second playthrough, because then you will already know what must be done in each mission. Lowest Point â Complete the mission "Roman's Sorrow".  This achievement is related to the storyline, so you shouldn't have any problem unlocking it. If you have, this walkthrough will certainly be useful: -> http://www.gta4.net/missions/chapter-one.php#romans-sorrow Manhunt â Complete the most wanted side missions from the police computer.  Just like the Vigilante missions, these need a police car computer to be activated. Enter one, use the computer, go to the "Most Wanted" option and select one of the criminals there. There are 10 most wanted guys for each island (Broker/Dukes/Bohan, Algonquin and Alderney). Be sure to have ammo and body armour when doing them. Usually the criminals are not alone, they can be with their gang, inside a car or a building. You don't need to do them all in a row. The dead criminals will appear on the list as deceased, so you know which ones you have already dealt with. You need to be on the right island to complete these missions. For example, if you are in Alderney, only the Alderney Most Wanted criminals will appear. Kill them all and the achievement is yours. No More Strangers â Meet all random characters.  There are on the streets some characters that you can interact with. These appear on the map with a blue human-like icon when you are close to them. Meet all of them once and you get this achievement. The random characters are not always on their places, so if you're looking for one and he/she doesn't appear, wait some ingame hours and check again. Be aware that some characters are only available after you do certain missions. Check the links I provide below if you need help finding the random characters. -> http://www.gta4.net/map/?z=1&c=character -> http://www.gta4.net/random-characters/ *********************************** SPOILER *********************************** There is a total of 14 random characters, but during the main missions you can kill 3 of them. If you kill them, you won't need to find them. However, if you leave them alive you must find them to get this achievement. The ones that can be killed are Ivan ("Ivan the Not so Terrible"), Clarence ("Holland Nights") and Cherise ("Ruff Rider"). *********************************** SPOILER *********************************** Off the Boat â Complete the first mission.  This achievement is related to the storyline, so you shouldn't have any problem unlocking it. If you have, this walkthrough will certainly be useful: -> http://www.gta4.net/missions/chapter-one.php#the-cousins-bellic One Hundred and Eighty â In a darts game score 180 with 3 darts.  To get this one, go to the darts place in Dukes and start playing. Aim for the triple 20 mark and hit it 3 times in a row, scoring 180 points. You donât need to win the game, just score 180 points with 3 darts. If you donât know where the triple 20 mark is, check the link below. You must hit the "triple ring" area that is under the 20 mark (little red rectangle). - http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/4/42/Dartboard.svg One Man Army â Survive 5 minutes on 6 star wanted level.  1st method (the hard way) - Start by creating a lot of trouble with the police until you have a 6 star wanted level. Be ready to fight them all and donât die, you must survive 5 minutes on 6-star. Annihilators will pursue you, along with FIB and NOOSE agents. You better have a good amount of ammo and weapons, and also use body armour to help. Once 5 minutes have passed, the achievement is yours (you don't need to evade the cops). A good spot for this is the Schottler Medical Center in Broker. Start shooting the peds inside and then, when you get a 3-star wanted level, take cover behind the walls and keep shooting the cops that come through the doors. You will eventually reach a 6-star wanted level, so just hang in there for 5 minutes. There is health on the hospital if you need, and the dead cops will drop their weapons, so if you need ammo, just pick them up. 2nd method (the easy way) - If you don't have enough skill to survive a 6 star wanted level for 5 minutes, just start a new game, cross one of the blocked bridges and then go through the subway. The cops don't catch you there, so just stand within their range (marked on the map with a flashing circle) and wait 5 minutes to get the achievement. You don't need to evade the cops. Order Fulfilled â Complete all 10 Exotic Export orders.  After you meet Brucie you will be able to find certain cars for him. He will use the ingame Internet to send you an email for each car he wants, so just reply positively to initiate the mission. These tasks are pretty easy, because the game will give you the exact location of the wanted vehicle, so you just need to go there, steal it and bring it to Brucie's lockup. Try not to damage the cars, you will get more money if they are in good condition (you can always use the Pay 'n Spray to fix them). Once all 10 cars are delivered, the achievement will unlock. Pool Shark â Beat a friend at pool.  Pretty self-explanatory, I think. Just play a game of pool against a friend and win. If you don't know how to play pool, now it would be a good time to learn. Retail Therapy â Unlock the special ability of buying guns from a friend.  This special ability is offered by Jacob. Go out and do activities with him until he likes you enough (above 75%). Once he calls you offering the service, the achievement unlocks. Rolled Over â Do 5 car rolls in a row from one crash.  To get this one I recommend going to the airport. Pick up a fast car, use the runways to give you enough speed and then use the yellow ramps to send the car into the air. For example, use one of the runways to gain speed and then place only two wheels on the side of the ramp, so that way your car comes out doing a barrel roll. Leave the gas and turn in the direction you want the car to roll. If you are going fast enough, you can do 5 rolls easily. I recommend a fast car like the Infernus for this one. Check the link below if you want to have a better idea of how you must place the car in order to do a barrel roll: -> http://img269.imageshack.us/img269/6984/rolledover.jpg Sightseer â Fly on all helicopter tours of Liberty City.  An easy achievement to get, but that takes some time. Once you have unlocked Algonquin you can go to the Helitours site to take some trips. Approach one of the choppers there and enter as a passenger to trigger the trip. There are 5 different trips, one on each heliport (there are 6 heliports, but one of them is always empty). You don't need to complete the entire trip, just let the pilot take off, fly a bit and then skip it the tour. That Special Someone â Complete the mission "That Special Someone".  This achievement is related to the storyline, so you shouldn't have any problem unlocking it. If you have, this walkthrough will certainly be useful: -> http://www.gta4.net/missions/chapter-four.php#that-special-someone That's How We Roll! â Unlock the special ability of helicopter.  This special ability is offered by Brucie. Go out and do activities with him until he likes you enough (above 75%). Once he calls you offering the service, the achievement unlocks. Under the Radar â Fly underneath the main bridges in the game that cross water with a helicopter.  One of the easiest achievements you can get. Get hold of a chopper and then fly under the main bridges in the game that cross water. Once you fly under one, the game will tell you how many you still have left and it will even mark them on the map for some seconds. Some bridges are a piece of cake, since they have a lot of space under them, but some are more tricky. Just fly slowly and you will do it. There are 14 bridges. Walk Free â Lose a 4 star wanted rating by outrunning the cops.  To get this achievement you must start a conflict with the police until you reach a 4 star wanted level. Then escape the cops, but donât go to any Pay 'n Spray or a safehouse. You must lose the cops by running away from them until the stars go away. The best way to do this is having a fast car and then travel quickly between streets and alleyways, avoiding all the cop cars that spawn. Pay attention to the map, because it indicates where the cops are coming from. Another method is to enter the airport with a fast bike. This will instantly give you a 4 star wanted level. To escape, just start on one end of a runway (there are two to choose from) and quickly drive to the end of the other runway, in the opposite direction. The two runways combined are enough to escape the cop's zone really fast. Then just leave the airport and keep a low profile until the stars go away. Warm Coffee â Successfully date a girl to be invited into her house.  If you remember Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, you probably also remember the "Hot Coffee" controversy that it caused. Rockstar had to pay a good amount of money because of legal complications, but now they seem to make fun of that. You get this achievement when Michelle* (a girl who you meet right at the beginning of the game) accepts Niko to go inside her flat to "have coffee". Enjoy the cut-scene (no sex displayed) and you get the achievement. *NOTE: You can get this achievement by dating other girls, but Michelle is the first one you meet and she invites Niko for a coffee right on the second date. Wheelie Rider â Do a wheelie lasting at least 500 feet on a motorbike.  A pretty self-explanatory achievement. Get a bike (I recommend the PCJ 600) and search on the map for a street without climbs or descents that goes straight. Start driving and then do a wheelie that lasts longer than 500 feet. If you don't know how to do wheelies, just press the key you mapped for the function "lean back". This will make Niko pull the front wheel, starting a wheelie. Just hold on that key and then play with the gas, trying to keep the front wheel above the ground. Be careful not to accelerate too much or you will fall. The airport is a good place to unlock this achievement, since the runways are long. You Got The Message â Deliver all 30 cars ordered through text message.  Brucie will later on (after the mission "Smackdown") introduce you to a friend of him, Stevie. Stevie wants 30 special cars to be delivered to his garage, so Niko steps up for the job. These missions are harder than Brucieâs ones because you only get a text message showing a picture of the car he wants, but you are not given the exact location, just an area to search on. Go to that area and search for the car, then bring it back to Stevieâs garage in Bohan. Try not to damage the cars, he pays really well if they are in good condition. Once you have delivered the car he wants, wait 6 ingame hours so he can text you the next one. After you deliver the 30th vehicle, you get the achievement. If you donât want to bother searching for the cars, use the link below to see where they are: -> http://www.gta4.net/map/?z=1&c=theft You Won! â Complete the final mission.  The final of GTA IV consists of 6 different missions, 3 belonging to one final (Deal) and another 3 belonging to another final (Revenge). The decision will be available after the mission "One Last Thing". Once you beat the game, the achievement will unlock. This walkthrough will be useful if you need help to complete the mission: -> http://www.gta4.net/missions/chapter-four.php?vo=45#one-last-thing ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 5.2. MULTIPLAYER ACHIEVEMENTS  = 140 (G) ~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ These achievements are only obtained by playing online with other people. Only RANKED MATCHES count for these achievements. Player matches don't unlock achievements and don't make you level up. Auf Wiedersehen Petrovic â Win all ranked multiplayer variations, all races and "Cops 'n Crooks" as both sides.  We start with the most difficult achievement in the whole game. To get this one you must win all game modes in ranked matches once. It is a good idea to keep an eye on the leaderboards, because sometimes you can win a race, for example, but the leaderboards wonât update it. Create a checklist to help you keep tracking of what you actually won so far. Here is a "rough" checklist for you: ONE MAN ARMY MATCHES: - Car Jack City --------- [ ] - Deathmatch ------------ [ ] - Mafyia Work ----------- [ ] - GTA Race (all races) -- [ ] - Race (all races) ------ [ ] TEAM MATCHES: - Cops 'n Crooks -------- [ ] - Team Car Jack City ---- [ ] - Team Mafyia Work ------ [ ] - Team Deathmatch ------- [ ] - Turf War -------------- [ ] CO-OP MISSIONS: - Bomb da Base II ------- [ ] - Deal Breaker ---------- [ ] - Hangman's N.O.O.S.E. -- [ ] NOTE 1: On Cops 'n Crooks you must win, in one of the modes and on the same round, as a cop and as a crook. NOTE 2: In total there are 112 races that you must win to get this achievement. However, in the PC version there are 2 extra road races in Race and GTA Race, so that makes a total of 4 extra races. You can still get this achievement by doing only 54 races on each mode (Race and GTA Race). Cut Your Teeth â Earn a personal rank promotion in multiplayer.  We go from the hardest achievement to probably one of the easiest. Once you get into the online mode, your rank will obviously be a nice zero. You only need $1000 to level up, so any ranked match that you win will probably give you enough money to level up and get the achievement. Join the Midnight Club â Win a ranked multiplayer race without damaging your vehicle too much and with damage enabled.  You can get this achievement by winning a race without damaging your vehicle. Try to avoid all other players and hazards on the road. A good way to get this one is playing a race with few players. Some scratches are ok, but something more serious than that and you won't get the achievement. Just be sure that damage is enabled and you finish in 1st place. Let Sleeping Rockstars Lie â Kill a Rockstar developer in a ranked multiplayer match.  Pretty self-explanatory. But you might be wondering "how am I going to kill a Rockstar developer online?" Donât worry because this is called a "viral achievement". You just need to kill someone that has this achievement to get it too. Right now almost every player online will have it, so just keep playing (and killing other players) to get it. Don't be amazed if you get it the first time you kill someone online. Taking It For The Team â Be on the winning team in all ranked multiplayer team games.  To get this one You just need to win all the team matches available. You don't need to do everything on the same game session, nor you need to be the best player on your team. You just need to be on the winning team. Once you have won them all you get the achievement. The team matches are: - Cops 'n Crooks ------ [ ] - Team Car Jack City -- [ ] - Team Mafyia Work ---- [ ] - Team Deathmatch ----- [ ] - Turf War ------------ [ ] Teamplayer â Kill 5 players who are not in your team, in any ranked multiplayer team match.  A self-explanatory achievement. A team deatchmatch is the best to get this one. You will be able to kill 5 enemies quickly before the match is over, so getting this achievement is a piece of cake. Top of the Food Chain â Kill 20 players with a pistol in a ranked multiplayer deathmatch.  This one is a bit harder. The best way to do it is entering a deathmatch that has only pistols available. If you canât find one like this, be prepared for some deaths until you get the achievement. Pistols are not the best weapon for deathmatches, especially when all the players are using AKs, RPGs or SMGs to kill you. Just keep trying to kill them with a pistol (either the normal pistol or the Desert Eagle) enough times. You can kill whoever you wish, you do not need to kill 20 different players, just perform 20 kills with a pistol in the same match. Top the Midnight Club â Come first in 20 different ranked standard multiplayer races.  Pretty self-explanatory. Win 20 different ranked standard races (not GTA races) and the achievement is yours. Free Races and Cannonball Runs don't count for this one, so just stick to the road races (22), boat races (4) and helicopter races (10). You can use all the time you want, you donât need to win all these races in the same game session. Once you win your 20th different race, the achievement is yours. Wanted â Achieve the highest personal rank in multiplayer.  You can level up on the game by gaining money, and you can gain money on every kind of ranked match. To get to the top, which is rank 10, you will need to get the amount of $5 million (5000000). The quickest way to level up is to play the co-op missions, as each one gives you $4500 just for winning (hard difficulty). Since you get $100 for each enemy you kill, you can easily reach the amount of $7000 or more on each mission. Just play a lot and be sure to pick up all the money you can. ---------------------- 5.2.1 Fly The Co-op -- ---------------------- Fly The Co-op â Beat our time in ranked versions of "Deal Breaker", "Hangman's NOOSE" and "Bomb da Base II".  This is the achievement that most people want, or at least it seems so. There are 3 co-op missions that Rockstar prepared for us, and they have also set a record for each that you must beat in order to get this achievement. First of all, and this applies to all the co-op missions, play with people that you already know. It's really hard to beat the records if you keep playing with randoms. You should create a team, so to speak. Start doing these missions as Player Matches, so that way you can invite whoever you want and block all the other players from entering without being invited. This way you can practice all the missions without problems with your team mates. You cannot invite your friends in Ranked Matches, so that's why I say to play in Player Matches first. There are various strategies online, but I will only post here the ones I used. Be aware that nothing that you read or see or listen will help you get this achievement if you don't practice. You need to play these missions with your team to actually know how to do it. Having an organized team, where everyone knows exactly what to do, is vital. Also it would be a good idea to set the settings properly. Most players don't even notice them, but I would suggest something like this: - Difficulty set to EASY - Friendly fire set to OFF - Cars set to PARKED - Peds set to OFF - Weather set to CLEAR - Time of day set to MIDDAY ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Bomb da Base II (5 minutes and 32 seconds): ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I suggest a team of 4 players for this one. You will start in Algonquin with two cars near you. Two players should enter in each car, then drive to a van full of explosives (this van will be marked on the map and it can spawn in 3 different locations). To beat the record you need the nearest location, which will be at the beginning of a bridge, near where you start. It is possible to beat the record even if the van spawns at the farthest location, but you will need a very good team to do so. This van will have two Jeeps near it, each with 2 armed guys inside that will shoot you. Kill them quickly and then kill the guys that will appear on the back of the truck. While the back doors are open, hit the small windows inside, so that way you can kill both the driver and the passenger. This allows the truck to stop, so you can quickly steal it. Only one player must enter the truck to drive it. Go to the location. A cut-scene will trigger and now it is time to fly. Be sure that only one player tries to be the pilot... you donât want 4 players going in circles around the chopper trying to enter. Once everyone is on, quickly fly trough the buildings to the Platypus boat, in Broker. Fly as lower as you can between the buildings. Don't take the chopper too high, that will only slow you down. Land on the back of the ship, then all but the pilot must get out. Start shooting all the enemies. Be careful because there are lots of them inside the boat. Once you are in you will have a stair going up and one going down. All the three players that left the chopper must go down. While that the player on the chopper will use it to land on top of the ship. Once there kill the enemies and plant the first bomb (the spot is marked with a yellow marker). The players that are going down must also kill the enemies and plant the other bomb. After both bombs are planted, get out of the ship, either jumping to the sea or jumping to the docks. If done correctly you will do this in less than 5:34. -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7nQww0cwX6w ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Deal Breaker (7 minutes and 4 seconds): ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ For this mission I recommend 2 players. You will spawn in Pegorinoâs house, Alderney. There are two Schafter cars inside the garage and sometimes a Cognoscenti outside. One of the players must drive one of the cars to the location marked on the map. This player must enter the highway near the hospital. Don't follow the GPS route, it will take more time. Once you get on the highway, as you approach the location, there will be a corner with a jump. If you go at full speed and jump you will end almost in front of the place where you need to go. Check the following image to see the route: -> http://img140.imageshack.us/i/dealbreakercar.jpg/ While that, the other player must drive the other car to a mansion near where you start. Usually there is a chopper there (if it isnât you must restart the mission because you need that chopper to beat the record). This player must quickly fly to the location marked on the map. If done correctly, both players will arrive at the same time. Check the following image to see where the helicopter is: -> http://img140.imageshack.us/i/dealbreakerchopper.jpg/ Once there you will have a 7 floor structure full of gang members. The player with the chopper must land on top and quickly kill the 4 enemies there (don't crash the chopper, you will need it later). While the chopper player works his way down, the car player works his way up. Make sure that you kill every enemy on each floor and that you collect their money. It is very important that you leave no one alive and no money when you clean each floor, otherwise the other part of the mission wonât be triggered. The money is marked on the map with a green icon, and only one gang member drops money per floor. If the building is cleared at the 3:30 mark, you are doing great. Once all the enemies are dead, the mission will trigger another sequence: some enemies are going away from the location, either by road or by sea. This is where I explain why you only want 2 players for this one. - If there are 2 players, only 1 group of enemies will go away, making them easier and quicker to catch. - If there are 3 players, 2 groups of enemies will try to escape. - If there are 4 players, 3 groups of enemies will try to escape. So, assuming that you are playing with another mate, once all of the enemies are dead, you will see some escaping. If they are on the boat just let them be close enough to the coast and kill them. Aim for the driver first, and donât miss. If they are going by road just get one car or a bike from the entrance (the bike is better) and go after them. Only one player must do this, though. The other player must quickly return to the top and get the helicopter back. Follow your mate and once he is done with the enemies let him enter the chopper and quickly fly back to Pegorinoâs house. Crash land and enter the garage to finish the mission. -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCAKTs8oyCk ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hangman's N.O.O.S.E. (2 minutes and 32 seconds): ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This mission starts on the airport. I recommend 3 players for this one, although 2 is a good number too. Just donât do it with 4. You'll start outside Petrovic's jet, with a bunch of NOOSE officers shooting at you. They will keep spawning, so you must be careful and keep killing them. Petrovic won't get out until you kill at least 15 of them. While you do this, one player must grab one of the SWAT vans parked there. Bring the van to Petrovic's jet and when he gets out, call your friends back. All must get into the van. The driver must drive to the heliports at the end of the airport. Park the van, enter the chopper and fly to the spot marked on the map. Don't do a nice landing, just crash land right on the mark to end the mission. If done correctly, you can do it under 2:32. Why you only want 2 or 3 players? Simply because both the van and the chopper can only transport 4 people, so if you are 4 players, one of them must use a second van and chopper, something that will slow you down.Don't forget that Petrovic also counts. -> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_mpG7it-Mc =============================================================================== 6.
