- San Andreas Explorer
Explore the entire Los Santos and Blaine County area.
San Andreas Island will be fully open and open to visitors from the very beginning, unlike the previous Grand Theft Auto game.
Since the game world will be explorable immediately, the city map will however be completely covered and you will have to discover it manually, playing through the story or moving around the game area in search of new areas and activities to do.
Once you have visited a certain section in the game world, on the map you will be able to clearly see the area you are visiting or have just discovered.
The best way to discover the map quickly would be to use a plane, because it covers a much wider view of the area and you can travel through areas that would be inaccessible with the car, without having to worry about traveling all the roads and paths.

- Follow that car!
Purchase Downtown Cab Co. and complete a private ride.
At some point in the story you will find yourself at a point in the main storyline where you can start buying properties around the city of Los Santos.
Owning a property not only allows you to use their services for free, but it will also be a great way to receive a lot of money per week for the use of your property.
To unlock this Trophy, you'll need to purchase the Downtown Cab Co., a taxi company located on Tangerine Street east of Vinewood.
This license will cost you $ 200.000 and can only be purchased from Franklin.
Now all you have to do is wait for the call from your boss Raul, who will order you to pick up a customer, do it and the trophy will be yours.

- TP Industries expands
Buy the McKenzie hangar and win the arms race.
During the game, using the character Trevor, you will have to complete the two story missions "Mr. Philips" and "Nervous Ron", before being able to buy properties around San Andreas; after completing the second mission, the game will inform you that it is possible to buy real estate in certain places on the map.
To unlock the Trophy, purchase the McKenzie hangar for $ 150.000.
Once purchased, you will be able to start undertaking traffic missions on behalf of Oscar, whom you will meet immediately after making the purchase.
Arms trafficking missions are carried out with 2 means of transport, the first is an airplane, while the second is a Dune Buggy BF parked outside.
You choose how to complete the mission to receive instructions from Oscar and after completing it you will have to spend some time before you can return and carry out the next one.
You will have 10 missions in total to complete and once all are completed, you will unlock the Trophy.

- Multidisciplinary
Get a gold medal in all sports and pastimes.
In GTA V, there are over 60 hobbies and pastimes available around San Andreas, but you don't have to do them all to unlock this achievement. Follow the driving for GOLD in all sports and pastimes.

- Three men, one army
Endure 3 minutes with a 3-star suspicious level with the 3 characters together not on a mission.
You can attempt to unlock this trophy immediately after completing the "Mr. Philips" mission, as after finishing it you will finally have the opportunity to use all three characters.
When you want to spend some time with them, open the phone and access the address book; now call or one of your partners and you will be able to select "meeting / meeting", always remember that the other 2 characters may not always be available, because they are busy carrying out various activities, so when you have a free moment take the opportunity to try to call them until they are both free.
Once you have set a meeting with one of the two, a new icon will appear on your map, that is the location of the person you just called and is waiting for you, go there to pick it up and then repeat this operation for the other character, making sure you have a 4-door car, otherwise you won't be able to transport all of them.
To try to unlock the Trophy you will need to get at least 3 suspicious stars, resisting for at least 3 minutes with the 3 characters.
The simplest method, of course, is to either kill a police officer or go through an access zone at an airport, both of these methods will immediately lead to 3 stars, however it is recommended to drive past the airport for a larger chase.
As soon as you have the necessary level of suspicion, stay around the area, continuing to drive until the three minutes have passed and you have unlocked the Trophy.
Since the area around the airport contains little or no artificial intelligence and there is a lot of open space, this method is by far the most efficient, rather than failing to hit the crowded streets of Los Santos.

NOTE: Try to unlock this trophy BEFORE the last few missions in the story, because if you unlock the gold medal for the "something sensible" and "time has come" missions, you will not be able to get this trophy.

- More or less I'm getting by
You will need a bigger boat ...
You can get this trophy anywhere in the game.
First, go to the coast / beach and get on a boat or any other vehicle, such as jet skis.
Now drive towards the ocean until the color of the water is dark blue, as it will be easier to come across sharks. You will know that a shark is close to you when a red dot appears on the mini-map, similar to enemies.
Approach him, dive into the water and wait for him to eat you; after he gives you a few bites, you will unlock the Trophy.

- Selfless Acolyte
Deliver an unsuspecting victim to the Altruist Sect.
As the story progresses, while proceeding normally through the city, you will sometimes notice a notification on the mini-map, such as a white flash followed by a flashing red / blue dot.
This notification indicates that a random event is taking place and to activate it simply get close to it and everything will start automatically.
They range from catching a thief, to shootings against some gang, to passing a hitchhiker or a drunk, etc. To unlock this trophy, you must wait for the random encounter "hitch" or "drunk driver."
When you charge the Unknown Citizen, you will have the opportunity to offer it to cannibals at the Altruists' Camp in Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness (Northern Blaine County).
You will receive an on-screen notification informing you to take it there and an "A" icon on your map will appear.
If you set your custom goal to the course, you can follow the new purple route instead of the yellow route automatically set by the game.
Once you get to the camp, Trevor will accompany him to the main gate, where the poor fellow will be placed properly, once the mission is completed you will unlock the Trophy.

- Cooked hands
Spend over $ 200 million on all three characters.
There is a really quick way to boost this. At the end of the game, you will have around $ 20.000.000 (unless we really squandered it all). Open your mobile phone and go to the "money and services" tab on the stock exchange's LCN website. Now invest all your money in stocks and then immediately sell it back. If you do the operation quickly you will not lose anything, and you can repeat it several times to raise the value of the money spent in the statistics, up to 200 million and unlock the result.

Alternatively, consult the guide to earn money in GTA 5.

- Finance magician
Make a profit on your total stock market investments.
To unlock this simple achievement, open your mobile phone and log on to the Internet.
From the home page, select the item "Finance & Services" and choose the first site available or in general the one you want, all are fine.
Open the site page, choose the "Markets" option and buy a stock exchange that is on the rise; you can check if a stock market is rising thanks to a green arrow (in positive sign), while the red one (in negative sign) means that its shares are falling.
You can buy as many shares as you like, but you only need one to unlock the trophy.
It will be necessary to wait at least 12 hours of play, then go back to the page of the financial site, click on "My catalog" and sell some shares, making sure that the current valuation of your share is in green, so that from its sale you can get something , because otherwise if it were in the red you would lose something compared to the initial purchase price.
Once the title is sold, you will unlock the Trophy.

- Pumped weapons
Fully customize a weapon.
this trophy can be done easily, after completing the fourth story mission, when you get a chance to control Michael, outside the dealership.
At this point in the story, it will have around $ 7.500.
Find the nearest ammu-nation store and talk to the clerk when you arrive.
He'll show you some weapon models, but you don't have to buy anything, because you already own the gun, so just buy all five upgrades for it and the Trophy will unlock.

- Extended Charger: $ 387
- Flashlight: $ 472
- Silencer: $ 1822

- Wanted: alive or alive
Deliver a wanted fugitive alive.
"Recovery" missions (bail missions) are only available to Trevor.
After finishing his first mission, "Mr. Philips", immediately after, you should see an orange question mark, the one that activates the strangers / fools missions.
On this occasion, you will meet Maude, who will regularly send you some e-mails about targets to be recovered.
From the first mission you will be able to unlock the Trophy, you will have the task of capturing Ralph Ostrowski, who will be located in the middle of the Davis Quartz Quarry.
This area is southeast of Trevor's house, once you get to the quarry, go through the entrance and go straight, you should now see a set of train tracks, on your left and a crossroads should appear soon after. , take the road on the right, at the next fork, go right again and finally up the hill.
After you find it, it will escape, remember that you must take it absolutely alive, so chase it and shoot its tires to get it out of the car.
Get him to follow you, then get back in the car with Ralph.
Go back to Maude and you will unlock the Trophy.
If you missed the chance to get this trophy with the first mission that's not a problem, as you will be able to take other characters alive.

NOTE: There are only a limited amount of objectives to capture, Maude will give you around 7, so this Trophy is hypothetically missing, but you shouldn't have too much trouble getting it.

- Los Santos Customs
Fully customize a vehicle.
After the "Father / Son" story mission, you can begin customizing vehicles at Los Santos Customs workshops.
These shops will be marked on the game map with the classic spray can icon.
Since every car can be easily modified without any problems, there is no mandatory vehicle to use, bring us the one you like best.
To unlock the Trophy just make sure to purchase each upgrade for all the sections available in the car customization menu.
To successfully complete all the available changes you will need at least $ 40.000, otherwise if you choose the more expensive upgrades the figure will become exorbitant.
It is advisable to attempt to unlock this trophy immediately after Ron's mission, provided by Maude, as at that point in the story you should have at least $ 100.000 to spare if you haven't spent it previously.
The Trophy might be buggy, but in reality you have to pay close attention to what you buy, since you will have to buy every update for all the available categories, do not leave anything out.
