The Last One: A new mission will appear on Mt. Chiliad for Franklin. In it, a hunter will implore you to help take down a sasquatch. The mission-giver is very similar to a mission in Red Dead Redemption: Undead Nightmare, but ends with a very different result.

Alien Car: This special vehicle unlocks after finding all 50 Spaceship Parts and returning them to Omega with Franklin.

Secret UFO #1: After earning 100%, travel to the wooden viewing platform at the top of Mt. Chiliad and wait until the game time reaches 3 AM. A UFO will appear, flashing colors and lights, but will disappear after stepping off the wooden platform.

Secret UFO #2: Another UFO will appear directly over the Fort Zancudo AFB. It can be seen from a helicopter near the very top of the San Andreas sky box. This UFO, unlike the first one, will appear at any time of the day.

Rockstar hasn’t announced any freebies yet, but there are a few things that unlock! A UFO will appear in the sky over Mt. Chiliad, for one. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping there’s more.


On September 26, 2013 at 5:51 pm

Willhall That’s is your gift from ron for completion of main storyline.

What about the Submarine Parts you need to collect for the women on the pier after you buy Sonar Collections Dock. Should come under ‘Strangers & Freaks’

Not every collectible is required to earn 100% completion, weirdly enough. It seems like a contradiction in terms, but I think Rockstar was just being lenient.


On October 3, 2013 at 2:12 am

Why do you have to win a game of tennis to get 100%?! I’m rubbish at it. It’s the only thing stopping me getting 100% it’s a pointless requirement!

Best checklist I’ve ever saw till now. Thank you.

As Franklin, called up Trevor to hang out, but I only have bars, darts and strip club as places to hang out. None of the movie theaters work. Do I have to own them as Michael for this to open up?


On October 29, 2013 at 12:51 am

I have done all those hobbies and pastimes listed, yet im still missing on from list somehow, im 99.8% so frustrating.


On November 1, 2013 at 10:10 am

Can you still do yoga if you killed Michael?
I have 41/42 H&P :(


On December 7, 2013 at 5:51 pm

Great list sweetheart, but you’ve got these missions listed backwards:

50 Letter Scraps Collected for Omega Mission
50 Spaceship Parts Collected for Dreyfuss Mission

Letters is Dreyfuss. UFO is Omega. Not that it matters…

Tennis – every 100% checklist says “win at tennis” or “win a tennis match”. These instructions are not clear.

Note that you can choose to play 1 game of tennis (6 games one is equal to a set of tennis), multiple games or even multiple sets.

What is required for 100% completion is winning 1 single game. So if you try to do this a few times with Michael against Amanda, you can beat it.


On February 19, 2014 at 12:11 am

Just finished 100%, you have everything spot on, except for the ‘DOMINATOR’ missions, you need to complete those in order for the ‘Strangers and Freaks’ stats to go up, and you don’t need to complete the rampages. Your guide was a big help though, in getting to 100%. Thanks!


On April 1, 2014 at 7:47 am

PLEEEAAAASEEEE HELP ME! I’ve got 41/42 hobbies, 99,8 %. I’ve done everything:
* all races, 1st place (green ticks present)
* Darts won for nearly 10 times
* yoga completed for nearly 10 times
* lap dances 15 times or more
* tennis matches (sets, games) won many times
*golf (nearly 30 games, par or birdie, good game)
* triathlons done
*flight school passed
*parachuting done
*shooting range done.
I’ll be very grateful for any help!
