    This achievement will take a bit of time but isn't too difficult with patience. The objectives to gold medals do stack so you don't have to worry if you're taking too long at a mission since you're making sure you're getting a good accuracy. Make sure to use each characters abilities whenever you can to help with objectives that suit their ability.

    It's best to work on this after you complete the campaign and all of the Strangers and Freaks missions. After completing as many as you can, look through your missions and see which ones are close to being completed and focus on those first. Strangers and Freaks missions as well as the setup missions for heist are usually quick and easy golds to achieve.

    When working on time related objectives, skip any cutscenes and only focus on completing the mission. Don't worry about accuracy as it isn't advisable to work on them at the same time. If you die and restart at a checkpoint, it will void your time objective. If that happens it's best to work on a different objective during the mission so you can at least salvage it a bit.

    Accuracy related objectives will be easier if you turn on auto aim so you can keep missing shots to a minimum as well as assist in getting headshots if you need them.

    Mission specific objectives tend to be easy so take note of what is required before you replay a mission so you can get these ones while playing them.

    Missions with the Unmarked objective should be avoided since there are plenty of missions that won't require having to worry about being shot. You'll usually spend more time trying to get this completed on a single mission rather than if you did two missions without it.

    This achievement can take awhile. But if your doing this on your first play-through whilst working your way through the main story and towards the "career criminal" achievement it really shouldn't be much trouble at all.

    Here is and amazing guide that tells you all of the requirements needed for a gold medal on each mission, and it also give you tips for some of the harder gold medals.

    The only tip i will personally give is if you don't get the gold medal after your second attempt leave it and move on, as there will be most likely be easier gold medals ahead. I say this because there are about 110 missions that you can get gold medals on and you only need 70 for the achievement.

    So I figured I should share these two links on to this solution page as they helped me very much to obtain this achievement on the Xbox 360 version and I am currently using them to get this achievement on the Xbox One version.

    So this is a list on IGN of all Strangers and Freaks missions; when you click a specific one it will give you a guide on how to complete and get Gold rating on the mission. The link is;

    And this is the link for all the story type missions. The concept is same on this page too, it gives you a guide on how to complete missions with a gold rating;

    You can check the in game progress of the ratings you have on missions by pressing Start, then going along to Game and then either the 'Replay Mission' or 'Replay Strangers and Freaks' section. This allows you to re-attempt the missions as many times as you want to obtain this achievement. The objectives do stack so for example if you already had 2 of the 3 objectives completed, when you replay it, just aim to complete the 3rd objective and ignore the other two, as long as they are all ticked at the end it will give you gold rating.

    Hope these links help and good luck to you all.
