    THIS ACHIEVEMENT IS STORY RELATED AND IS UNMISSABLE IF YOU PLAY FAR ENOUGH.

    The campaign involves 74 missions I believe (that maybe wrong)
    THIS achievement is unlocked for the second last mission and should pop up when completed.
    *** Spoiler - click to reveal ***

    TO AVOID SPOILERS I AM ONLY GOING TO PUT THE NAME OF THE MISSION AND THAT IS:

    The big score

    SeitzzAnybody know if this doesn't pop what's wrong? I just noticed I got the final mission achievement, but not this one. Is it because I skipped a section of the mission maybe?

    SeitzzSo nevermind, answered my own question. It seems if you take the obvious approach, and if you fail any section to the point where it says you can press X to skip, do not skip, this will not give you the achievement. However, you can just replay the mission to get the achievement, it doesn't even have to be the same approach.

    This achievement requires you to complete "The Big Score".

    There is a video guide under the text guide if you prefer that instead.

    This mission can be started as I think by all three characters. When you start, a cutscene begins.

    Subtle Approach
    After the cutscene, you have to get in the car and arrive at the tunnel entrance before 8:00 am, so go quick. Once you arrive, wait for the security trucks and drop the stingers when prompted to. When the trucks fall for the trap, you will get a cutscene, after it, you will be in the security truck, so drive over to the depository. Once you arrive at the depository, you will get a cutscene, after it, follow the manager to get all the gold and get out. When you do, you will have to switch to Franklin, so you can guide Michael and Trevor through green lights to the destination whilst you have to red light Merryweather. Just make sure that Merryweather stays on red light and Michael and Trevor stay on green light and you should do it. Once they arrive, there will be a cutscene, then a firefight. Be patient and stay in cover as much as you can to avoid any unnecessary health loss. When you complete it, you get in your getaway car and drive after the other three. Take this slowly, because a mistake will probably get you to fail in this mission during this part. After that, you are required to fit the car into the truck, use Franklin's special ability to line this up because it is really difficult without it. But, when you do, you get a cutscene and, after it, have to head back to Michael's house. You will get a cutscene that ends the mission. Achievement Unlocked

    NOTE: IF YOU DIDN'T GET THE ACHIEVEMENT WHEN YOU COMPLETED THE MISSION, THEN REPLAY THE MISSION VIA THE "GAME" TAB, IT MAY HAVE BEEN DUE TO YOU SKIPPING A SECTION OF THE MISSION.

    Here is the video guide.

    Obvious Approach

    After the cutscene, head inside the car and go to the bank. When you arrive, you will switch to Franklin and have to drive the cutter into the bank's walls to the vault whilst Michael gets everyone down on the floor. After the short cutscene of the cutter destroying the walls park it away from the destroyed wall and place explosives on the vault doors. Eventually cops and, soon also noose arrive, but use these tips: be patient and try to stay in cover as long as you can. Once you kill all the cops and noose, you will switch to Trevor with the gold in the helicopter flying away. Follow the helicopter in front of you and eventually, you will have to switch to Michael. Use the tips I gave you and you should do fine in the firefight. Eventually, you do reunite with Franklin and shoot down a helicopter. When you get in a car in the parking lot, best way to escape the 5-star wanted level is to go inside of a tunnel, it is recommended to check the video on where it is, but at the end, you will lose the wanted level. Now you will switch back to Trevor, where you have to stay still to let Lester fire a rocket at Merryweather's helicopters, there are three of them. Once they are taken out, you will have to drop the gold on the train, so when it says to drop the gold, do it. When you do fly the plane to the airfield and a cutscene finally ends the mission. Achievement Unlocked

    NOTE: IF YOU DIDN'T GET THE ACHIEVEMENT WHEN YOU COMPLETED THE MISSION, THEN REPLAY THE MISSION VIA THE "GAME" TAB.
