Showroom

Fill 3 large garages with vehicles.
Platinum award requirement> 1.
To be honest, with the amount of hassle and expense to do this, I wouldn’t even bother.
The idea is to buy 3 apartments with attached garages large enough to fit 10 cars in. The cars all need to be bought rather than stolen and the 3 apartments will run you into the high hundreds of thousands so all in you’re looking at 2 million + for an award that for me at least across 3 different accounts has never unlocked despite having met the requirements.
Skip this one and go for another.

If you miss just one day the timer will reset and you’ll need to do an additional 28 in a row to earn the Over Achiever platinum award.

Crimes (6)

Crimes focus around wanted levels primarily as well as shooting down Police helicopters and holding up all 20 stores across San Andreas.

The Fugitive

Spend minutes with a 5-Star wanted level.
Platinum award requirement> 120 minutes.
Get yourself a 5 star wanted level by causing carnage or taking down several in game cops then trying to maintain it as long as you can before being taken down / evading pursuit.
The 120 minutes of 5 star wanted level required for the award can be done over as many different 5 star wanted levels as it takes.
Once you have spent 120 minutes (2 hours) with a 5 star wanted level you will earn the, The Fugitive platinum award.

The Police Mocker

Evade 5-Star wanted levels.
Platinum award requirement> 25.
Follow the steps in The Fugitive to get a 5 star wanted level where the tricky part now is to successfully evade it.
You will have cops coming in all directions for you including above so you will need to get yourself on the hills on the side of the freeway in a powerful car where hopefully the cops won’t spawn near you.
You will get helicopters coming for you at first so take them down as quickly as you can and stay on the move avoiding the roads where you will hopefully lose the cops.
This is more luck based than anything else and all depends on the cops spawn rates. Sometimes you can have unending waves of cops coming for you at 5 stars, other times they don’t seem that bothered.
Once you have successfully avoided a 5 star wanted level 25 times you will earn the, The Police Mocker platinum award.

When Pigs Can Fly

Shoot Police Helicopters down.
Platinum award requirement> 25.
Helicopters come for you at a 3 star wanted level and will need to be taken down with some form of artillery such as a Homing Launcher, Grenade Launcher or RPG as they will take a serious amount of machine gun fire to be shot out of the sky unless of course, you can hit the pilot.
Either way, shoot down 25 Police Helicopters to earn the When Pigs Can Fly platinum award.

Death By Drive-By

Take down other players as a passenger with a drive-by.
Platinum award requirement> 100.
This will be a lot easier with an online boosting partner.
You will need another player (preferably your boosting partner) to be driving the car with you as the passenger. Ensure you have something like an SMG / Sticky Bombs you can fire out of the window at any online player where you need to take them down rather than just injuring them.
Do this 100 times to earn the Death By Drive-By platinum award.

Vehicle Thief

Steal vehicles.
Platinum award requirement> 500.
Nice and simple this one. Steal 500 vehicles to earn the Vehicle Thief platinum award.

Armed Robber

Hold up every store.
Platinum award requirement> 20.
Click the link to go to the complete Stick Up Kid Trophy Guide where, once completed will earn you the Armed Robber platinum award.

Vehicle (10)

As you’d expect, this category focuses around vehicle based activities such as blowing up 100 cars, having a friend drive you around for a while as well as apply one of each upgrade at Los Santos Customs etc.

Sky High

Blow up vehicles.
Platinum award requirement> 100.
Blow up vehicles in any manner you choose. Having explosives (sticky bombs, grenades, RPG, Grenade Launcher etc. will make this a lot easier).
Once you have exploded the 100th vehicle you will earn the Sky High platinum award.

The Exporter

Sell vehicles at the import / export garage.
Platinum award requirement> 25.
Once you reach Rank 10 in GTA Online you will start to receive periodic texts from Simeon asking you to collect vehicles and bring them to him (“S” on the map) however, the cars he asks you for are random and the majority of the time even when delivered safely, the game won’t register as having a received a car.
When you steal a car for Simeon you automatically get a 2 star wanted level, you then need to go and get the car repaired after losing the cops and to be honest, if you’re going for the Decorated Trophy / Achievement, this award is far to glitched to bother with.

No Claims Bonus

Drive for 30 minutes with no damage.
Platinum award requirement> 30 minutes.
This will be easiest somewhere like the mountains or on a beach, anywhere away from traffic that can ram into causing damage.
You can drive around in circles if you like as long as you keep moving and don’t cause any damage to your vehicle for for half an hour in total, you will earn the No Claims Bonus platinum award.

The Passenger

Have a friend drive you around.
Platinum award requirement> 4 Hours.
This requires an online boosting partner.
Get a friend to drive you around for a total of 4 hours (doesn’t have to be done in one go) to earn the, The Passenger platinum award.

Mile High Club

Spend hours in a Helicopter
Platinum award requirement> 4 Hours.
There’s many ways you can acquire a helicopter, you can either purchase one or steal one from either Los Santos Airport, on the Helipad on top of the Hospital or from random Helipads around the world map.
You need to spend 4 hours total in a Heli (doesn’t have to be in one go) to earn the Mile High Club platinum award.

Suped Up

Apply at least one of each upgrade to a vehicle at Los Santos Customs.
Platinum award requirement> 1.
There’s a lot more upgrades available in GTA Online than there is in GTA V and this one will cost you a good deal of money so ensure you have around $300,000 as well as an owned car (it would be a shame to waste the upgrades for the award).
Personally, I used an Annis Elegy RH8 Sports (Phone> Internet> Travel And Transport> Legendary Motorsport> $95,000 or free if you sign in to the Social Club in GTA Online) as the car is very strong and fast. Especially when upgraded.
The upgrades you need to apply are as follows;

Flippin’ Hell

Perform 5 flips in the air, in a vehicle before touching the ground.
Platinum award requirement> TBC
This can be tough as you need a very powerful car and a high hill with a good drop off such as the hills to the South West of Los Santos leading out towards the Pacific.
Get a good speed going then hold Fwd on PS L3 to spin the car forward 5 times.
Perform 5 front flips, 5 times to earn the Flippin’ Hell platinum award.

Spinderella

Perform air spins in a vehicle.
Platinum award requirement> 5
For this one, you need a powerful vehicle then an easy way to do this is to go to the location in the image below, drive fast at the ramp then hold Left on PS L3 to spin the car 360 degrees whilst not flipping the car (keep the wheels pointed to the ground).
Perform 5, 360 flat spins to earn the Spinderella platinum award.

Stunt Jump 29 Map

Hold a wheelie for 2,000 ft.
Platinum award requirement> 1.

Any bump or traffic hit will more than likely end the wheelie so take it as slow as you can ensuring you don’t hit anything where, once you successfully pull a wheelie for 2,000 ft or more you will earn the Unirider platinum award.

Combat (25)

As the name suggests these awards are based around getting kills a certain way. Using specific weapons and taking down players a certain number of times without dying yourself.

Head Banger

Take down players with Headshots.
Platinum award requirement> 500 Kills.
This can be done with a boosting partner, although it’s not recommended due to the amount of time it will take.
You will need to get a total of 50 Headshots which can be earnt in any game mode although Deathmatches will probably be the easiest (see The Slayer for how to set up Deathmatches).
The headshots have to be against other online players (can be done with a boosting partner) rather than NPCs walking around.
Once you have racked up 500 headshots you will earn the Head Banger platinum award.

The Widow Maker

Take down players across any GTA Online mode
Platinum award requirement> 500 Kills.
This can be done against an online boosting partner although it isn’t recommended due to the amount of time it would take.
You will need to take down 500 online players which can be done across any game mode although Deathmatches will be the quickest way (see The Slayer for information on setting up Deathmatches).
Take down 500 players across any game mode to earn the, The Widow Maker platinum award.

The Bounty Hunter

Collect Bounties
Platinum award requirement> 25 Bounties.
This will be a lot easier with an online boosting partner.
As you play through GTA Online you will see messages pop up informing you a Bounty has been placed on a player. You can then go off and try and take that player down.
Alternatively, get an online boosting partner then Phone Lester (D Pad Up to bring up your phone then Contacts> Lester) select Set Bounty then choose your boosting partner from the list of players then finally any amount ($2,000 is fine) where you can then take down the player to collect the bounty.
Do this 25 times in total to earn the, The Bounty Hunter platinum award.

3 For 1

Take down a player 3 times before they kill you.

Stolen Kills

Steal kills from other players.
Platinum award requirement> 50 Kills.
To steal a kill you need another player to injure a player where you then need to be the one who gets the final hit to kill that particular player.
This will be a lot easier with an online boosting partner, however, it is also doable solo as long as you bring something like a shotgun allowing you to throw out heavy damage whilst an opponent is being shot.
Steal 50 kills in total to earn the Stolen Kills platinum award.

Death Toll

Take down players in Deathmatches.
Platinum award requirement> 500 Kills.
See The Slayer for how to set up Deathmatches then take down 500 players throughout as many matches as it takes to earn the Death Toll platinum award.

Killstreaker

Rack up a 10+ killstreak in a Deathmatch
Platinum award requirement> 1.
This will be a lot easier with an online boosting partner.
See The Slayer for how to set up Deathmatches ensuring the Kill Limit is set to 15 or above then take your boosting partner down 10 times in a row to earn the Killstreaker platinum award.

Smoke ‘Em Out

Get the most kills in a Gang Attack.
Platinum award requirement> 25.
See Clear Out for information on Gang Attacks then ensure you take down the majority of the gang members to earn the Smoke ‘Em Out platinum award.

Bloodiest Of The Bunch

Get the most kills in a 4 player Survival.
Platinum award requirement> 1.
This is a hard one to get unless you have 3 other boosting partners.
See Survivor for how to set up a Survival then ensure you get the majority of the kills whilst your boosting team hangs back.
If you can’t find 3 other players willing to go for this award then it’s a hard award to obtain hence the red rating for it.
This, without a boost will be more luck based than anything that you get teamed with players who aren’t very skilled at the game.
Either way, get the most kills in a Survival to earn the Bloodiest Of The Bunch platinum award.

The Equalizer

Kill a player who has killed you 3 times in a Deathmatch
Platinum award requirement> 50.
This will be easiest with an online boosting partner.
See The Slayer for how to set up a Deathmatch which you can go in with an online boosting partner. Allow the boosting partner to take you down 3 times then take them down 50 times to earn the, The Equalizer platinum award.

Pistol Whipped

Take down players using a Pistol.
Platinum award requirement> 500 Kills.
Pistols shouldn’t be the weapon of choice for most players as there are many different weapons that can take down your opponents more efficiently. However, to get this done you need to take down a total of 500 players with pistols so get yourself into Deathmatches (see The Slayer for how to set up Deathmatches) and start grinding out the kills.
Once you have taken down 500 players using a Pistol you will earn the Pistol Whipped platinum award.

SMG Head

Take down players using an SMG.
Platinum award requirement> 500 Kills.
SMGs are a good, fast way of taking down opponents as the can also be fired from a vehicle. I recommend you get yourself into a Deathmatch (See The Slayer for how to set up Deathmatches) then start grinding out kills.
Once you have taken down 500 players you will earn the SMG Head platinum award.

Shotgun Blues

Take down players using a Shotgun
platinum award requirement> 500 Kills.
You have a good choice of Shotguns so choose the best, most powerful one you can then get into Deathmatches (see The Slayer for how to set up Deathmatches) and start taking players down.
After you have racked up 500 kills, you will earn the Shotgun Blues platinum award.

Looking Down The Barrel

Take down players using an Assault Rifle.
Platinum award requirement> 500 Kills.
There’s plenty of Assault Rifles throughout GTA Online so grab one and get into a Deathmatch (See The Slayer for how to set up Deathmatches) where you can start grinding out kills.
Once you have taken down 500 players, you will earn the Looking Down The Barrel platinum award.

Scoping Out

Take down players using a Sniper Rifle.
Platinum award requirement> 100 Kills.
This will be easiest with an online boosting partner.
Sniper Rifle kills are probably one of the hardest of the weapon kills as GTA Online isn’t exactly conducive to a Sniper being able to rack up kills so if you are struggling, grab a Sniper Rifle from Ammu-Nation, you have either the Sniper Rifle which unlocks at Rank 21 for $20,000 and the Heavy Sniper that unlocks at Rank 90 for $38,150.
If you’re skilled enough to get Sniper Rifle kills then fair play, if you’re not and you want the award, get a boosting partner.
Either way take down 100 players with a Sniper Rifle to earn the Scoping Out platinum award.

Rapid Fire

Take down players using a Machine Gun.
Platinum award requirement> 500 Kills.
You have a couple of weapons available here. The MG which unlocks at Rank 50 for $13,095 and the Combat MG which unlocks at Rank 80 for $14,356.
Get yourself in a Deathmatch (See The Slayer for how to set them up) and start grinding out kills with either MG where once you have taken down 500 players, you will earn the Rapid Fire platinum award.

Ended In A Sticky Situation

Take down players using Sticky Bombs
Platinum award requirement> 50 Kills.
Sticky bombs are a brilliant addition to the game as they allow for precision controlled explosions, they become available at Rank 16 for $600 a pop and once thrown are triggered with D Pad Left.
Get into some Deathmatches (See The Slayer for how to set up Deathmatches) will a full stock of Sticky Bombs and take down 50 players to earn the Ended In A Sticky Situation platinum award.

Grenade Fiend

Take out players with Grenades.
Platinum award requirement> 50 Kills.
This will be a lot easier with an online boosting partner.
Grenades, whilst deadly are slow to explode once thrown meaning you either need to predict where your opponents will be 5 seconds after you throw one or hold down the button you use to throw a grenade to “cook it” which essentially reduces the timer for as long as you hold it down (cook the grenade for 3 seconds then, once thrown it will explode after 2 seconds etc.).
Alternatively, you can use a Grenade Launcher (unlocks at Rank 600 for $32,400) which explodes a grenade on impact making things easier.
Using an online boosting partner, you can have them stand still whilst you rack up grenade kills.
Either way, take down 50 players to earn the Grenade Fiend platinum award.

The Rocket Man

Take out players with an RPG.
Platinum award requirement> 100 Kills.
The RPG will become available for purchase when you hit level 100 and will cost you $26,250. Once you have the RPG, max out the rounds you can carry ($1,000 per 2 rockets up to 20 rounds) then go off and take down other players (A Deathmatch with RPG’s allowed will help here).
Once you have taken down 100 players with an RPG, you will earn the, The Rocket Man platinum award.

The Melee Murderer

Take out players with Melee kills.
Platinum award requirement> 50.
This will be a lot easier with an online boosting partner.
The Marquis of Queensbury rules… Get up close to players and take them down with Melee hits. No weapons are allowed, not even the knuckle duster. The kills need to come from straight up punches and or kicks against other players, hence the need for the boosting partner.
Beat down 50 players to earn the, The Melee Murderer platinum award.

The Car Bomber

Kill players using Vehicle Bombs
Platinum award requirement> 25 Kills.
This will be easiest with an online boosting partner.
Get any vehicle (you don’t need to own it) then head over to a Los Santos Customs and select the Explosives option.
From here you can fit the car with either an ignition bomb (Rank 25) that automatically triggers when another player tries to drive the vehicle or a remote bomb (Rank 50).
I recommend the ignition bomb as it’s cheaper and automatically activates when a player steals your vehicle.
Get 25 kills with vehicle bombs to earn the, The Car Bomber platinum award.

No You Don’t

Kill Package Carriers in Capture events.
Platinum award requirement> 100 Kills.
This will be easiest with an online boosting partner.
See Captured for how to set up Captures then have your boosting partner collect a package. You then take him / her down.
Repeat the process a total of 100 times to earn the No You Don’t platinum award.

Lights Out

Get kills whilst wearing Night Vision.
Platinum award requirement> 100 Kills.
You can purchase Night Vision at an Ammu-Nation for $17,500 and if you need to reequip them, hold down the PS Touchpad or Xbox Menu to access the Interaction Menu then; Style> Accessories> Gear> Night Vision then go off and rack up 100 kills against other players in any mode. Deathmatches will probably be the best option (See The Slayer for how to set up Deathmatches).
Whichever way you choose to take down players, do so 100 times whilst wearing the Night Vision Goggles to earn the Lights Out platinum award.

Psycho Killer

Take out Psychopaths in Freemode
Platinum award requirement> 100 Kills.
A Psychopath will be shown on the mini map / World map as a deep red marker for another player. This means they are on a killing spree and have taken down at least 3 other online players so taking them down could prove challenging.
Use high explosives such as Homing Launchers or RPGs where even without a direct hit the splash damage should do a good job of taking them down.
Whichever you choose to do it, take down 100 Psychopaths to earn the Psycho Killer platinum award.
