How to unlock the Altruist Acolyte achievement

    Trevor is the only character you can do this with. After playing the story mission, "Friends Reunited," you arrive in Los Santos and will already be playing as nutjob Trevor. Round the block from Floyd's safehouse, you will find a drunk couple (displayed as a blue blip) who needs a ride home. This is the easiest time to get the achievement in my opinion.

    Deliver them to the Altruist camp, which will appear as an A on the map near Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness (Northern Blaine County). Set a waypoint to the A, and follow the purple route, NOT the yellow one, the yellow one leads to the couple's house which will NOT get you the achievement.

    The achievement will unlock once you deliver them to their DOOOOOM! A walkthrough video kindly provided by NEO182 is below, from his randomchievos channel on YouTube.

    NOTE: There's a strange phenomenon happening just lately with the Achievement system on the Xbox One. Achievements aren't popping visibly or audibly, but they do. Your console has to be connected to Live, so if they don't pop, check your Internet connection, and the Xbox Live status page at

    They DO pop correctly, as I obtained them on the 360 version.

    Joelmir1602I managed to do this achievement randomly even after losing the drunk couple at the beginning of the game, while walking at night on a Saturday around 02:00 (In Game Times), a lost climber on Mount Chiliad, asked me for help claiming to be lost, I marked the place mentioned by the guide, took it to the altruistic cult site and the achievement unlocked.

    Hello, to get this achievement you must be playing with Trevor.

    Basically you need to find an event of interaction and help someone who will ride, and then you can take her to the cult Altruist and will receive $ 1000 in Exchange for the person. Doing this will get the achievement "Alstruist Acolyte".

    The most difficult part however is to find the event in which you ask for a ride, for that show in the video a position where there is one of these events.

    (Excuse me for the video be without sound, I believe it's some bug in DVR application)

    When you reach the position that charted, you will see 3 people, a woman tied up on the floor and two gunmen, finish with the two men and woman ask for a ride, then get the car that will be close to them and open the map, looking for an "A" which is where the cult is located, follow the purple route until the cult and deliver the woman as soon as you do you will win $ 1000 and the achiev.

    Short and Sweet way to do this.

    1. After Trevor's first mission OR at any point where he can pick up random strangers and take them to their destination you will receive the option to drop them off at the altruist cult for a fee.
    2. Set the GPS and drive them there, but be careful if you scare them they could run away if you crash etc.
    3. Drop them off and proceed to laugh.

    I realize this guide is awful when worded but there isn't much you can say other than go here and do this. And be lucky that the random event pops up.
