    First up, you must win at least one match of each Ranked multiplayer variation. Not including Race or GTA Race (we'll come to these), they are:

    Mafiya Work
    Car Jack City
    Team Deathmatch
    Team Mafiya Work
    Team Car Jack City
    Cops 'n Crooks (win as both Cops AND Crooks in the same match)
    Turf War
    Deal Breaker
    Hangman's NOOSE
    Bomb da Base II

    Note that you can only do some of these game types with friends in Party Mode, the rest will have to be done with random people. The game types you can play in Party Mode are:

    Team Deathmatch
    Team Mafiya Work
    Team Car Jack City
    Cops 'n Crooks
    Turf War

    Now, you also have to win EVERY RACE in EVERY RACE TYPE in both Race AND GTA Race. There are a total of 54 races, bring the grand total amount of races you need to win to 108.

    You only need 2 people for the races to start but it is very hard to boost for this as getting matched up with friends is very hard and the races don't usually start until there is 6+ people.

    This will take awhile and needs plenty of dedication. Good luck!

    Here are some very handy tip posted Johnny Jerkweed in the Comments section:

    Johnny Jerkweed said:
    For the road races, don't try to be the fastest. Play conservatively and let everyone else screw up. Slow down for hard corners. Most people lay on the gas the entire time and overshoot corners. The time they waste backing up to make the turn is way more then what they gain by accelerating non-stop the whole race.

    Try the different car choices until you find one you're comfortable with. I've been using supercars just because I got used to them due to it being the default choice. My preffered supercar is Turismo because it takes turns the best. Most people pick the Comet for some reason, it could be the fastest but it is AWFUL at turning.

    I prefer to put traffic on high to kind of level the playing field a little when playing against others who have all the tracks memorized and are good at them. This bit of randomness could screw up more experienced players and since I feel I'm pretty good and dodging traffic it can work to my advantage.

    Once you beat a regular (non-gta) race, try to get the gta version of it next while the track layout is still fresh in your mind.

    For helicopters, the Anhillator is the fastest but can be difficult to handle. Unlike street races though, it's worth it to go for speed in this case.

    For the cannonball runs and free races, I press start immediately, while the timer is counting down and set the waypoint to the first checkpoint. You should be able to do this and back out of the start menu before the race even starts. Another thing about waypoints is, although they only show the fastest 'legal' route, I still recommend using them, especially on ones involving bridges. If you don't, you could end up under a bridge you're supposed to cross and no where near the on-ramp to it.
    Here is a checklist of all races. It will help keep track of what you have won and what you need to win.

    I got this achievement an hour ago and thought I might write a solution on here.

    ***Game modes you need to win***:

    Deathmatch - Can be boosted with you and a friend, if not, aim for the head, TAP the RT and use cover whenever you can. The important thing to understand here (and this applies to all the other competitive Auto-Aim allow game modes), is that if you lock on to someone before they lock onto you, aka shooting from cover, you should kill them first 100% of the time. If this isn't the case, you're doing something wrong. If you have a turbo controller, there is a much better chance of winning DM's then if you don't since there is a good amount of high ranked (sometimes even low ranked) people who use these controllers and as an owner of one, I can say that it makes the shooting aspect of GTA 4 MUCH easier.

    Mafiya Work: Boost it, if not just win it, it's almost a ghost town at this point and the only people that play it are beginners who aren't used to multiplayer and are curious about what it is. Occasional tryhard Rank 10, if he's not on your team, just back out or kick.

    Car Jack City: Same thing as Mafiya Work

    Team Deathmatch: Boost it from party mode if you can obviously, but if you can't, it won't be too time consuming to get a "legit win". Try to switch to the most high rank stacked team and just play.

    Team Mafiya Work: Boost it from party mode, it's just as deserted as Mafiya Work and it requires more players to start the game.

    Team Car Jack City: Same as Team Mafiya Work

    Cops n Crooks: My favorite game mode and the reason why I stopped using TA for 4 months (I played this game non-stop and stopped going for achievements). This is one that really doesn't require boosting from party mode to win as it isn't overly difficult. You theoretically have a 50% chance of winning everytime, and you'll PROBABLY win if you hop over to the team stacked with high ranked players. They might try to kick you if you don't have a shiny star yet, but in that case just hop on the other team and switch back to their team at the last second before the game starts.

    Turf War: Boost it from party mode.

    Deal Breaker, BDB2, Hangman's Noose: No boosting available, just work with randoms and finish the mission. If you're going for Fly Da Co-op, you'll need some gamers from TA to help and coordinate with though. Feel free to PM me if you want help on this. If you ask nicely and I have time, I will gladly attempt to get you some quick runs.

    ***To boost for this achievement (for the Race and GTA Race wins)***:

    1-You should get 1 or 2 other buddies with you. Anymore tends to get the boosting pretty disorganized, and you'll probably get less wins.

    2-Choose a good boosting time. The times that worked for me the most were 3pm-4pm & 9-11pm eastern on the weekdays and early morning on the weekends ex: 6am eastern.

    3-Have a strict NAT. Configure your internet settings so that the level of security is Moderate. This will ensure that you get in smaller sized lobbies or get disconnected. I got my own lobby 80% of the time with a moderate setting. How to do this depends on what kind of router you have, so Google it up if you don't know how.

    4-Be prepared. You or your buddy/ies should have the track ready by the time your friend joins. It is also useful if you stay on Kick Player the whole time, so you don't have to scroll down all the way every time you want to kick someone. Doing this might save you a bunch of time, because people tend to join fast so you gotta kick them fast.

    5-Piss everyone off. Let's say you got a lobby by yourself and a random joins. Set the laps to 8, the weather to Foggy, time to evening, etc. If you get lucky, they'll decide to leave your lobby, leaving it free again.

    6-If you're in a lobby with a lot of people and you know it's a lost cause, set the worst settings possible and tell your friend/s to kick you. Chances are, you won't have to wait for the game to start and you'll get kicked (which is basically a free pass) to another lobby.

    7-Take your chances. if you're in a lobby with your friend and 2 other randoms who are readied up (4 people in total) and you got 2 votes on a guy and need one of the randoms to kick the other random, you might as well press A and start the game before more people join. A standstill usually leads to a crowded lobby so if you got some experience, you can probably beat the 2 randoms anyway! It'll also give you practice so you can win more.

    I also suggest that you and your friend/s actually race for the wins and then whoever doesn't win gets a free win last. This way, you can also get some practice so when you're in a small lobby with randoms, you can actually have a good chance of winning if they don't quit out on you.

    The other solutions here have some useful information too. Happy gaming!

    Wow, just wow....

    Anyway, great idea with the NAT settings - I have 2 xboxes so I might even be able to just boost by myself now that this game is dirt cheap!

    WcbezoekerThanks for the NAT settings advice, it really helped for the races. I used 2 xbox's and I got it in about 20 hours (3 days).

    This is not a solution, but rather a checklist. I know others have already posted checklists, but this one you can edit AND has formulas.

    I modeled this almost exactly after the one posted by ezekiel 08. Credit goes to him.

    You will have to sign in to your Google account in order to

    and edit as you please.
