This Grand Theft Auto San Andreas 100% Completion Guide & Checklist will show all the requirements for getting 100% completion within the game, which is required for the Remastered trophy/ achievement (updated for GTA San Andreas Definitive Edition Remaster on PS5, Xbox Series X, PC). Nothing required for 100% completion is missable, thus you can complete everything on this list in any order you desire without fear of missing anything.
Cheats will disable all trophies, so you will need to meet all requirements normally. The game very rarely can crash, so it is recommended to save regularly to avoid losing progress while doing stuff like Horseshoes and Oysters. It is also recommended that you play the game in Performance mode instead of Fidelity mode, as while in Fidelity mode some mission cutscenes can cause the game to crash.
Despite being labelled as 100% completion, there are several things not required for it, most notably completing all 70 Unique Jumps, getting all girlfriend relationships to 100% and taking over all gang warfare turfs.

There are 26 Asset Missions in the game, and you must complete them all. Most of these will unlock throughout the game and appear on the map with a symbol, however the courier missions and Valet do not appear on the map. When completing a set of asset missions, you will start to generate revenue outside the establishment.
There are 3 Courier Missions, and these can be started by getting on a vehicle in front of a particular building on each island. These require you to deliver packages around the island, starting with 3 packages on the first level, and 6 packages on the fourth level. You must complete all 4 levels for each courier mission to complete them. For the locations of all courier missions, please see GTA San Andreas Hidden Mission Locations.
- Roboi’s Food Mart (Commerce, Los Santos) – get on the BMX bike parked outside
- Hippy Shopper (Queens, San Fierro) – get on the Freeway parked outside
- Burger Shot (Redsands East, Las Venturas) – get on the Faggio parked outside
There are 8 Trucking Missions, and these can be started at RS Haul in Flint County after completing the mission “Tanker Commander”. They will appear on the map with a truck symbol. These require you to drive a truck full of goods to a location around the map under one of three conditions – delivering under a time limit, delivering without causing damage to the good, and delivering illegal goods with a wanted level. The first 6 missions can be done as soon as it is unlocked, however the last 2 will require you to unlock Las Venturas first, so are available after completing the mission “Yay Ka-Boom-Boom”.
There are 7 Quarry Missions, and these can be started at the Hunter Quarry in Bone County after completing the mission “Explosive Situation”. They will appear on the map with a yellow bulldozer symbol. These are simple missions done within and around the Quarry, utilizing either a Dump Truck or Bulldozer. Most of these will be timed and require you to do tasks such as moving objects.
There are 3 missions for Zero RC, and before you can do these you must buy the Zero RC asset for $30,000 after completing the mission “Wear Flowers in Your Hair”. These are normal side missions, with each one involving RC vehicles.
- Air Raid
- Supply Lines…
- New Model Army
There are 4 missions for Wang Cars, and before you can do these you must buy the Wang Cars asset for $50,000 after completing both the mission “Yay Ka-Boom-Boom” and at least bronze on all lessons at the Driving School. These are normal side missions, with each one tasking you to steal a car through various means and return it to the Doherty Garage. Completing the third mission will unlock the Export and Import lists, which are also necessary for 100% completion.
- Zeroing In
- Test Drive
- Customs Fast Track
- Puncture Wounds
There are 5 levels of the Valet mission, and before you can do this you must first complete the mission “555 We Tip”. After this you are able to start the Valet mission at the Vank Hoff Hotel in Financial, San Fierro, but only if you are wearing the Valet outfit. The objective of this mission is to take cars that are left at the valet and park them in the designated space in the carpark. On the first level you must park 3 cars, and the fifth level you must park 7 cars. You will get time bonuses when parking cars straight and for doing it without damage. Killing other valets will give you a 20 second time penalty.
There are 3 Vehicle Challenges in the game, and you must complete them all. These are challenges started when getting on a specific vehicle at their spawn locations. These do not appear on the map at all. For the locations of all vehicle challenges, please see GTA San Andreas Hidden Mission Locations.
The BMX Challenge can be started by getting on the BMX at the Glen Park Skate Park in Los Santos with a cycling skill above 20%. For this challenge you will need to collect all 19 checkpoints around the Skate Park, with each checkpoint granting you 10 seconds and you starting with 10 seconds. Several of these checkpoints will require you to bunny hop with the BMX to reach (which can be done by holding ), and it is recommended that before you do this you have a cycling skill of at least 60% if not higher, as your bunny hop jump height will increase at higher skill levels. Having too low cycling skill can make some checkpoints extremely difficult to reach.
The NRG-500 Challenge can be started by getting on the NRG-500 at the dock in Easter Basin, San Fierro. For this challenge you will need to collect all 18 checkpoints within the halfpipe, with each checkpoint granting you 10 seconds and you starting with 10 seconds. Several of these checkpoints are high in the air and will require you to launch off the halfpipe at the right angle and speed to hit them in the air.
The Chiliad Challenge
The Chiliad Challenge can be started by getting on the Mountain Bike on the top of Mount Chiliad with a cycling skill above 40%. The challenge is only available between 07:00 and 18:00 (7AM to 6PM), and there are 3 routes that you must complete. These routes are a race down the mountain, and you must win each route. Upon completing a route, you will unlock the next one.
- Scotch Bonnet Yellow Route
- Birdseye Winder
- Cobra Run
There are 6 Vehicle Missions in the game, and these can be started at any time by pressing while in the respective vehicle type. These require you to drive around the map completing a certain objective. While these can be done at any time (once available), it is recommended that you at least do Paramedic, Firefighter and Vigilante as early as possible, as the rewards from these are very beneficial throughout the game.
Firefighter missions will require a Fire Truck, which can be found at any Fire Station or by starting a fire with molotov cocktails. In order to complete it, you will need to reach and complete level 12 in one go. Each level will increase the number of fires to put out by 1, with level 1 starting with a single car on fire, and level 12 having 3 cars on fire, all full with passengers. When you put out a burning car the passengers will get out and start running around, and you must put them out. You will receive time with every fire put out and quickly have an excess of time, so the only thing to be careful of while doing this is making sure you don’t ram into any burning cars or run over any burning passengers, as this make you fail the mission.
Upon completing the Firefighter mission, you will become fireproof.
Paramedic missions will require an Ambulance. In order to complete it, you will need to reach and complete level 12 in one go. This mission tasks you with picking up injured civilians around the map, and returning them to the hospital, granting time both on pick up and (sometimes) on drop off, with the number required to rescue going up by 1 every level. The Ambulance has very poor handling and can flip very easily, so while doing this it is recommended to drive cautiously, and brake with when going around corners to avoid flipping. As the Ambulance can only hold 3 people at once, you will want to use your map to plan out your route each level so that you’re picking them up in an effective manner. Be careful not to run over any injured civilians or crash while moving them, as this will fail the mission.
The best location to complete this is in Angel Pines (which is where you start after completing the mission “The Green Sabre”), as the town has a hospital and is very small. By doing the mission here all the patients will be very close by and you can complete the paramedic mission very quickly.
Upon completing the Paramedic mission, you will increase your maximum health.
Vigilante missions will require any law enforcement vehicle, including the HPV-1000, Rhino and Hunter (in the case of the Hunter the mission is called Brown Thunder, but it still counts as the same thing). In order to complete it, you will need to reach and complete level 12 in one go. Each level will increase the number of criminals to kill by 1, with level 1 starting with a single criminal in a car, and level 12 having 12 criminals split across 3 cars.
The easiest way to do this is either with the Rhino or Hunter, but these will require some effort to acquire. The Rhino can be accessed from Area 69 within the Restricted Area in Las Venturas, and entering Area 69 will give you an immediate 5-star wanted level. The Hunter can be acquired either by getting all gold medals in the Flight School, or by smuggling it out of the Heli Hell checkpoint race (by flying it to Las Venturas Airport where you start the checkpoint race and letting the race fail). These vehicles will make Vigilante a joke, as the Rhino is effectively indestructible, destroys cars quickly and has a cannon, whereas the Hunter can cover ground incredibly quickly, has lock-on guns as well as rockets.
If you want to do this early on however, you will need to use a regular law enforcement vehicle, of which the HPV-100 Police Bike is the best choice. With this method you will want to use any variant of SMG (preferably with 2000+ bullets to ensure you don’t run out during the mission) and drive-by the criminals until they either get out of their cars or they blow up. The HPV-100 is great for this as you can shoot forwards as well as sideways. Be careful when they get out as they can sometimes have shotguns or rifles which will destroy your vehicle very quickly. You will inevitably get a high wanted level while doing this method, meaning you will either need to find police bribes or quickly grab another vehicle to use a Pay’N’Spray. You will also likely need to change law enforcement vehicles several times during the course of this.
Upon completing the Vigilante mission, you will increase your maximum armor.
Pimping missions will require a Broadway, which is a 2-door convertible. These can be found driven around El Corona by the Varrios Los Aztecas, parked next to a gas station on Idlewood, or alternatively gotten during the mission “Jizzy”. In order to complete it, you will need to reach and complete level 10 in one go. This mission will task you with picking up 2 girls and taking them to their clients, alternating between each girl. Sometimes when you go to collect a girl, the client will either attack them or run away, in which case you must kill them. You will complete a level every time you pick up a girl from their client. There is no timer for this, so you can take as long as you like. San Fierro is the best location for this as it is the smallest city and easiest to navigate.
Freight Train missions can be done by getting into either a Freight Train or Brown Streak Train, which can be found stopping at any of the train stations around the map. Before you can start this mission, you will need to complete the mission “Yay Ka-Boom-Boom” to have access to Las Venturas. There are 2 levels of the Freight Train mission, and these can be completed separately.
Each level will task you with making deliveries to each of the 5 train stations around the map, effectively completing a full loop. There will be a timer so you must get to each station promptly. The train can derail if you go too fast, so it is ideal to stay around a speed of 45, as the the train will derail once the speed hits 47.5. In order to not overshoot a train station, you should start braking when the station is within 10x the distance of the speed you are travelling (so if your speed is at 45, you should start slowing down when the distance to the station is at 450). Both levels of the mission are effectively the same, you will just have slightly less time during the second level.
Upon completing the Freight Train mission, you will get $50,000 and free train rides.
Taxi Driver missions will require either a Taxi or Cabbie. You will need to complete an overall total of 50 fares to complete this, and it does not need to be done in a single sitting. This will simply require driving from point A to point B, picking up fares, and dropping them off.
Upon completing 50 total fares, all Taxis will be equipped with nitro and hydraulics.
There are 19 Race Tournaments in the game, and 6 Checkpoint Races. These can be started by going to the Checkered Flag symbol on the map, with locations in each city. You must win 1st place in all 16 Race Tournaments, while the Checkpoint Races must simply be completed. You must get at least bronze medals in all lessons at Driving School before Race Tournaments will be available. Each race gives you a vehicle to use for it, so you cannot bring your own vehicles. Winning each race will reward you with $10,000, and winning all win give you a bonus of $1,000,000.

There are 4 Stadium Events in the game, and you must complete them all. These can be started at the 3 stadiums (one on each island), and appear on the map as a trophy symbol. 2 of these events are races you must win, 1 is a demolition derby and the last is a checkpoint challenge.
8-Track (Los Santos Forum)
This event can be done at Los Santos Forum, which is directly east of Grove Street. You must have at least 20% driving skill to start it. This is a 12-lap stockcar race, and you must finish 1st to complete it. There is nothing special to this race, just avoid getting spun out by the opponents and once you get a steady lead there should be no threat from the opponents.
Blood Bowl (Corvin Stadium)
This event can be done at Corvin Stadium in San Fierro, which is directly south of the Driving School. This is a destruction derby, and your goal is to reach the target time of 1 minute by collecting checkpoints around the arena. You will start with 30 seconds and every checkpoint you collect will give you 15 seconds. While this sounds easy, the other cars will both try and ram you as well as collect checkpoints themselves, making it a battle of attrition. This can be a little random, as you will likely need a few checkpoints close together without other cars around to complete it, but as long as you focus on the checkpoints and keep an eye on nearby cars it shouldn’t take too long to complete.
Kickstart (Blackfield Stadium)
This event can be done at Blackfield Stadium in Las Venturas, found on the western side of the city. Kickstart will be available here every day of the week, except Monday and Wednesday (you can check the day by holding ). This is a checkpoint challenge, where you must collect checkpoints around the arena to get points. Green checkpoints are worth 1 point, orange checkpoints are worth 2 points and red checkpoints are worth 3 points. In order to complete the challenge, you must get at least 26 points (with the total possible being 61 points). These checkpoints will be spread around jumps, ramps and other obstacles. You will have a 4 minute timer while doing this, so just focus on getting the easier checkpoints so you don’t waste time trying to get the harder ones.
Dirt Track (Blackfield Stadium)
This event can be done at Blackfield Stadium in Las Venturas, found on the western side of the city. Dirt Track will be available here only on Monday and Wednesday (you can check the day by holding ). This is a 6-lap dirt bike race, and you must finish 1st to complete it. As long as you have a decent bike skill you should very quickly get a steady lead on the opponents.
There are 4 Vehicle Schools in the game, and you must complete all lessons in each school with at least a bronze medal. All silver/gold medals are not required for 100% completion, they will only unlock other vehicles outside the respective school. Each school has between 5 and 12 lessons to complete, and these are mostly tests on vehicle control and movement. Once a school is unlocked, it can be found on the map with a red S.
Driving School is unlocked after completing the mission “Deconstruction” and is available just south of the Doherty Garage. Driving School has 12 lessons. Getting all bronze will unlock the Super GT, all silver the Bullet, and all gold the Hotknife.

Getting all bronze will unlock the Rustler (as well as your Pilot License), all silver the Stunt Plane, and all gold the Hunter.
There are 4 types of collectibles in the game, and you must complete them all. There is one type for each island, and one that is spread across all four. Completing the island-specific sets will unlock 4 weapons at the main safehouse for that island, while collecting the last set will make dating girlfriends easier.
Gang Tags (Los Santos)
There are 100 Gang Tags scattered across Los Santos that you must spray. These require a Spray Can to spray, which can be unlocked upstairs in the Johnson House after completing the mission “Tagging Up Turf”. However they are best done during the mission itself, as during this mission you will have an unlimited Spray Can and thus won’t have to constantly restock.
Spraying all 100 tags will unlock the Tec9, AK-47, Sawn-Off Shotgun and Molotov Cocktails at the Johnson House, and all Grove Street gang members will have their weapons upgraded.
For a complete list of Gang Tags, please see GTA San Andreas Gang Tag Locations.
Snapshots (San Fierro)
There are 50 Snapshots scattered around San Fierro that you must photograph. These are landmarks that having a floating camera icon near them, and you must take a photo of this icon to capture the Snapshot. These require a Camera, which can be obtained either upstairs in the Johnson House or nearby many of the Snapshot locations. While the Snapshots are located at landmarks, the landmarks themselves do not need to be captured at all, you only need to photograph the floating icon itself. These can also be captured from a distance where the floating icon hasn’t rendered in, as long as you photograph the correct spot.
Photographing all 50 Snapshots will unlock the Micro Uzi, Shotgun, Sniper Rifle and Grenades at the Doherty Garage, as well as $100,000.
For a complete list of Snapshots, please see GTA San Andreas Snapshot Locations.
Horseshoes (Las Venturas)
There are 50 Horseshoes scattered around Las Venturas, and these are typical collectibles that you must pick up. Many of these are located either on rooftops or hard-to-reach locations, so they are best collected with the Jetpack (unlocked at Verdant Meadows Airstrip after the mission “Green Goo”), or alternatively with a helicopter (however some will difficult to get using a helicopter).
Collecting all 50 Horseshoes will unlock the SMG, Combat Shotgun, M4 and Remote Explosives at the Four Dragons Casino, as well as $100,000.
For a complete list of Horseshoes, please see GTA San Andreas Horseshoe Locations.
Oysters (Whole Map)
There are 50 Oysters spread across the whole map of San Andreas, and these are typical collectibles that you must pick up. These are all located underwater, so are best collected with the Sea Sparrow (located at the southeastern dock of Sherman Dam or at a small dock northeast of Verdant Meadows) as you can quickly fly to the locations of the Oysters and land on the water, or alternatively simply use a boat to get to them.
Collecting all 50 Oysters will give you $100,000, maximum lung capacity, and also make it so all potential girlfriends will date you regardless of CJ’s appearance or sex appeal.
For a complete list of Horseshoes, please see GTA San Andreas Oyster Locations.

You will need to complete the challenges for all 4 weapons in one session at the shooting range, and the last weapon will be unlocked after completing the mission “Yay Ka-Boom-Boom”.
Each weapon challenge will consist of 3 rounds, where the first 2 you simply must destroy 3 targets before your opponents do, while the 3rd round you all share one target and you must score 20 points before your opponents do. If you fail a challenge, you can start it again immediately, however if you leave the shooting range you will have to start again from the first challenge.
