Grand Theft Auto IV Trophy / Achievement Guide

This is my first guide here at, so it may be a bit vague. But I will try my best to make it as clear as possible and tell you exactly what you need to know.

Here I have gathered all the information on the easiest way to get certain trophy/achievements.

If you see any faults or if you want to contribute in any way, please email: [email protected]

Be aware that cheating, using the cheat codes will disable some of the achievements, so please make sure you keep your save files separate to avoid these problems.

All the achievements are organized in chronological order as they appear on your list on these platforms; PS3/XBOX360/PC. Some of the trophy/achievements need more of an explanation that others, so I'll do my best to explain them fully.

Press A(360) X(PS3) SPACE(PC) To dodge this attack. If successful, you should then use any of the attack buttons to counter attack. Make sure you find an area where is plenty of pedestrians to fight, in case you kill the one you picked on first.

25 points / Bronze Trophy
- Once you have completed the "N.1" mission for Brucie. Simply select Race from Brucie's options in the phone book. You need to Win a total of 20 races. You may get the same races repeated once you have won them all, but this is fine.

Wheelie Rider

You completed a 500 foot wheelie on a motorbike.

30 points / Bronze Trophy
- Get a motorbike, I suggest a fast one, like an NRG or a PCJ, but a faggio still works fine. Then take it to the airport. Be aware that once you go on the landing strip, you will get 4 stars. Simply start at one end of the track, and then start a wheelie by pulling back. Hold it when it is at the right hight and then wait until you get the achievement. Keep trying until you nail it.

Gobble Gobble

You got a turkey in 10-pin bowling.

10 points / Bronze Trophy
- Score three strikes in a row. The easiest way to do this is to wait until your turn, take two steps to the left, and then press down and up very slowly making sure you do it straight. The bowling ball with slowly roll down the lane hitting the pins directly in the perfect spot and knocking them all over.

Driving Mr. Bellic (Secret Achievement/ Trophy)

Rolled Over

You managed 5 car rolls in a row from one crash.

30 points / Bronze Trophy
- Grab a fast car, and take it to the airport runway, be aware that you will obtain 4 stars. Then take it to one end of the runway, race it up as fast as you can, then when you come near to the end, look on the grass for a small low yellow sign. Use this by driving one half of the car on it and the other half off. This will create a barrel roll, and hopefully give you the achievement/trophy if done correctly. Keep trying until you nail it.

Walk Free

You successfully lost a 4 star wanted rating.

50 points / Bronze Trophy
- Get yourself 4 stars by killing a few people and causing havoc with the police. Then you will need to escape the police radius.

- Go to a busy intersection with a shotgun and a rocket launcher with Max ammo. Park your car in the middle of this intersection causing a block. Get out and aim your shotgun at the drivers causing them to panic and flee. Careful when shooting them in case there is police nearby, this will give you less survival time. Once you see that there is definitely ten vehicles, take a few steps back and rip out a few rockets until all is obliterated.

One Man Army

You survived a 6 star wanted level for a full 5 minutes.

40 points / Silver Trophy
- The easiest way I have found to do this is by starting a new game. Quickly drop Roman off and get your safe house unlocked. Find yourself a gun just to be safe. Now drive to the nearest bridge, and simply run past the barriers and back to the car. Drive back to the safe house and go inside, all the way up to the bedroom. Hide by the corner of the wall and wait for any police to enter. Kill as many as it takes, collect there ammo, and wait until the 5 minutes are up.

Fly The Co-op

You completed "deal Breaker", "Hangman's NOOSE" and "Bomb da Base II" in time.

15 points / Bronze Trophy
- This is quite hard. You need to get a good team for each of these co-op missions. Because it takes a lot of team work.

Hangman's NOOSE: 2:32

Best to do with a team of two or three. Start off by killing the police in the area. Wait for the police enforcers to drive in both sides and kill them. Grab the enforcer near to gate from the airport entrance. Pick up your friends, drive round to Petrovic, pick him up, then drive round to the north side of the airport to grab a helicopter. Park close the helicopter to make swift work of transporting Petrovic safely to the getaway vehicle. Now fly straight towards to marker. Descend towards the marker at full speed as if you were going to crash into it to save time. This will trigger the cut scene. If all done correctly and swiftly, you should get the quick time.

Deal Breaker: 7:04

I recommend two player for this. At the start one player should take the car to the checkpoint and the other should go to the house round the back across the street with the helicopter in the garden. Take the helicopter to the checkpoint but land on the top floor in a safe area behind the giant tanks. By then the other player should just be arriving and taking out all the bad guys on the bottom floor. Both work your way through killing the dealers and collecting the packages. Once all packages are collected, one group of enemies should leave. 1 person go down and grab a bike and the other grab the helicopter. The person on the bike needs to kill the remaining getaways while the helicopter driver tails them waiting to pick them up. Once they are dead, jump in the helicopter and fly straight back the house and jump out then walk into the garage, mission complete.

Bamb da Base II: 5:34

For this co-op mission, I suggest four players. At the start, two in one car, two in the other. You are only going to get this mission in time if you get the van spawn location at the nearby bridge. Race after the van, kill the guys in the two cars and then shoot the van until it stops. All four of you get into the van as quickly as possible then take it straight to the next location. Now the helicopter part is import. The driver must land on the front end of the ship and let two people off to take care of the middle deck and the lower bomb while the driver and the other person have to fly up to the top deck and plant the first bomb as quickly as possible. Jump down and go inside the boat to rejoin the other two who should be shooting the tons of guys guarding the stairs. Two go down and take care of the guys downstairs, leave one guy alive for now. One of you plant the bomb, while the other kills them self purposefully to respawn outside. Everyone else must leave the boat while the bomb is being planted. Then ounce complete run round the corner and get your self killed to by the remaining guy to save more time. Then jump off the boat to meet your friends and complete the mission.

Take It For The Team

You were on the winning team in all multiplayer team games.

10 points / Bronze Trophy
- Help the team win each of these match types:

- Cops 'n Crooks (As both Cop and Crook on One for All, and All for One)

Top Of The Food Chain

You successfully killed 20 players with a pistol in a deathmatch.

10 points / Bronze Trophy
- The easiest way to get this is to make a custom deathmatch with pistols only in a small area where players respawn nearby quickly, like colony island. Kill 20 players before the time is up and this trophy/achievement is yours for the taking.

Top The Midnight Club

You won 20 different multiplayer standard races.

20 points / Bronze Trophy
- Win 20 races in the standard race mode only, not GTA race.


You achieved the highest personal rank possible in multiplayer.

20 points / Gold Trophy
- Reach rank 20 in multiplayer mode. The quickest way to do this is by playing the co-op missions over and over, especially Hangman's NOOSE as it's only around 2:30 minutes long.

Auf Wiedersehen Petrovic

You won in all variations of multiplayer games.

30 points / Bronze Trophy
-This is by far the hardest of all GTA IV trophy/achievements. Because unlike the rest, this requires you to do everything possible on multiplayer. It is a good idea to look through your stats to see what games you have won because you will need to win every type of game and with races every track on both race and GTA race. Here is a quick list of what you need to win:
- Deathmatch
- Mafia Work
- Car Jack City
- Team Deathmatch
- Team Mafia Work
