You Got The Message

Deliver all 30 cars ordered through text message.

To unlock Stevie’s Car Thefts, the player must unlock the Alderney Safehouse, and complete the mission Smackdown for Derrick McReary and No. 1 for Brucie Kibbutz

Dare Devil

Complete 100% of the unique stunt jumps.

There’s a total of 50 stunt jumps throughout the game, most of them are pretty easy if you use a fast vehicle

Under The Radar

Fly underneath the main bridges in the game that cross water with a helicopter.

Use a helicopter to fly under all of the bridges. Flying with a keyboard can be a bit tricky & the default mapping sucks so I recommend changing your flying controls.

Order Fulfilled

Complete all 10 Exotic Export orders.

The Exotic Exports missions are unlocked after completion of the mission Logging On for Brucie Kibbutz.

Endangered Species

Collect every hidden package in the game.

This achievement is probably the most annoying one to complete, there’s too many to fit into 1 photo so you’ll have to watch the video above if you’re struggling to find them all.

It’ll Cost Ya

Complete a taxi ride without skipping from one island to another.

Pretty boring one to do, travel to another island but don’t rush or skip. Take a toilet break or something when you’re doing this.

Walk Free

Lose a 4 star wanted rating by outrunning the cops.

This achievement is actually very easy to complete. You can gain a wanted level when you’re a passenger in Roman’s Taxi. Once you have 4 stars, just skip the ride and you’ll lose the wanted level with no cops nearby.

One Man Army

Survive 5 minutes on 6 star wanted level

Using a helicopter with 6 stars is a great way to survive, an alternative option is to hide in the subway tunnel

Wheelie Rider

Do a wheelie lasting at least 500 feet on a motorbike.

If you’re struggling with this use a faggio on a straight bit of road as it’s more easier to control [Hold CTRL to do wheelies].

Cleaned The Mean Streets

Capture 20 criminals through the police computer.

Find any police car and stop to access the police computer. Go to “View Current Crimes”. Choose any active crime and kill the criminal involved to complete it then repeat 19 more times

Half Million

Reach a balance of $500,000.

Completing the story & side missions are the easiest way of gaining this achievement. If you really want to do this achievement, then don’t spend that much money on firearms/ammo. During gunfights, just pick up the ammo to save money..

Finish Him

Complete 10 melee counters in 4 minutes.

Genetically Superior

Come first in 20 singleplayer street races.

Grafting the races while driving a fast car, such as the Infernus or even something as simple as a Turismo or Sultan RS should make winning the races easier and shorter.

Chain Reaction

You must blow up 10 vehicles in 10 seconds.

The easiest way to get this achievement is by blocking a busy road, such as Frankfort Avenue near Middle Park or gathering vehicles inside Westdyke Autos, then blowing up all of the cars which pile up using ideally a Rocket Launcher.

Rolled Over

Do 5 car rolls in a row from one crash.

If you’re struggling with this, crash your car while travelling at a high speed downhill as the car will roll further without stopping.

Find a police car and stop to access the police computer. Go to “View Most Wanted” and complete the 30 Most Wanted missions by killing each of the criminals

Calling out Terry and Clay to help out with Gang Wars repeatedly is the quickest and easiest way of getting this achievement
