You can track your progress by going to "Social Hub" in the pause menu and go to the "Stat Awards" tab.

If you are looking for a particular award just use Ctrl + F. I've also included the awards in the order they are shown in the Social Hub. I won't include the description for the stat awards because they are already shown in the Social Hub.

Overall: Don't worry about this one you will get it as you get the other ones

Fluid Striker: Load up the "Mrs Chu's Revenge" mission. (Social Hub > Missions) Play the mission until you get to the part where the thugs have firearms. There will be a thug standing behind a cover, run towards the cover and vault over it (Press A). You will disarm and kill the thug. Reload Checkpoint and do it until you get the Gold award.

Headhunter: Get Headshots. You will get this as you play. If you somehow manage not to get it just load up a mission that has guns (The Funeral, Mrs Chu's Revenge, etc.)

Blindfire: If you don't get this during the story just load a mission with guns, get behind cover, fire and hope you get lucky. Shotguns work well for this.

Firestarter: Blow up explosive objects that are near enemies (cars count) or kills enemies with a grenade launcher. If you need some kills just load the mission "The Funeral", get the grenade launcher, kills enemies with it or blow up the cars that have enemies next to them.

Sniper: You should have absolutely no problem with this one. During shooting/driving sequences just shoot the enemy cars, it's very easy to do since the game goes in slow-mo.

Gunman: You'll get this as you play

Ninja: Very easy, You need the "Leg Break" melee upgrade (Return the jade statues to the Dojo guy). Go to one of the four Martial Art Clubs, Grapple an enemy (B button) then tap X and then hold X. You will break his leg, the enemy will be stunned (little spinning thing above his head) and you will be facing his back. Now double tap B and you will perform a "Ninja Kill"

Bonebreaker: See "Ninja"

Environmentalist: During melee fighting parts in story missions you will often find objects that glow red when you grapple an enemy. Bring the grappled enemy to the object and press B. "The Election" mission has a lot of them.

Handyman: Get melee weapon kills. You should get this as you play. If not, grab a tire iron from car trunks (Press Y) near the trunk, This doesn't work with all cars but the majority of cars have a tire iron. Find a group of thugs that hang out around Lockboxes, kill them, repeat.

Disarming: See "Fluid Striker"

Defence: Counter enemy attacks. Press Y when an enemy glows red. You will get this very early on.

Fast Talker: You should get this as you play. If not, the missions "Bride to Be" and "Bad Luck" have a few Fast talks in them.

Deadeye: Kills enemies with thrown weapons. Grab a Tire Iron from a car trunk, find a group of thugs that hangs out near lockboxes, lock onto one of the thugs while you are holding the tire iron, press the Right Trigger to throw the object, it should be a one hit kill, repeat.

Martial Artist: You will get this as you play

Enforcer: You will get this as you play

Safe Driver: Drive at a decent speed without crashing. If you drive to every location (with a car, motorcycles don't count) you should easily get this.

Reckless Driver: I would recommend buying a Class A car early on in the game and use it every time you need to get somewhere. Go fast, obviously.

Hijacker: Go to the highway and go action hijack some cars.

Wrecker: Load up "The Funeral" mission, get the grenade launcher, go to the parking lot, blow up the cars (don't waste your time with the vans). Reload Checkpoint until you get it.

Racer: Win the all the Races on your map

Mogul: You will eventually be able to call someone (I forgot his name, not Roland, the other guy). He will tell you to steal some cars for him. The better the condition of the car, the more money you make so be careful. I made around 4 million dollars doing all his jobs.

Big Spender: With the money you made while doing the "Mogul" award, go buy some cars and clothes. Although I would recommend waiting until you have Face level 10 before you buy all the cars or clothes so you can get a 40% discount and not have to grind for money later on.

Gambler: Go to the Cock Fights in Kennedy Town, Save your game, pick a fighter ( I always picked the one with the most wins and I only lost twice), bet $100,000, if you lose just reload your save file. If you win, save your game and repeat.

Completionist: Get a 100%. Complete all missions, favors, events, races, jobs. Collectibles and buying the clothes and cars might also count. Look at the solutions for completing those if you have any problems.

Explorer: There are 187 collectibles in this game but you only need 175 for this gold award. Look at the collectibles solutions The collectibles will also appear on your map as you progress into the game (Date Amanda, Tiffany, Not Peng and the other one, I forgot her name but you know who I'm talking about)

Survivor: You should get this as you play. If not, just go piss off some cops.

Rogue Cop. This is easier if you have the "Police Trunk Key" upgrade. You can get it by increasing your cop level by doing cases and drugs busts. Go look at your map, go to Central and look for "Tsim Shan Shan Alley". There is a police station there, go there, grab a shotgun from one of the police car's trunk, kill cops until you get the gold award. If you die just repeat.

Public Enemy: Make sure you have a couple hours available, play missions until you get 200 kills in one sitting. I didn't even have to try for this one as I am addicted to this game.

If I missed one just tell me and I'll update the solution
