    Obviously all that is required is to spend $50,000 on vehicles in the garage/ hangars located around the map.
    A good strategy if you want to keep your money is to amass $50,000 at once via fishing/hunting/ prepper stashes then save before entering one of the shops, spend all the money at once then quit the game before backing out to stop it from saving (xbox guide button + start + quit ). It must be all spent at once as reloading a save does not stack the money spent.

    The achievement will pop and you will keep all your money when you relog in to spend on other things such as clothes/ weapons.

    geordiedeviantIndeed. I don't think it was said you NEED to spend it all at once.

    I'm currently spending 5k per time and restarting the game as per above instructions. (I was a bit flash with the cash during the campaign buying all the weapons)

    Achievement tracker going up every time. Thanks OP. Good guide.

    WhtthfggIt doesnt need to be done all at once unless you are trying to use the quit out strat to save your cash

    BigDaddyMafiaknow this is an old thread, but achievement tracker stopped. Anyone have a solution to fix or am I screwed?

    Runner7922First of all it should be stated that "vehicle" includes everything driveable including chopers, planes, ATVs, trucks, cars and boats. The game tracks how much you spend internally and once you hit $50,000 the achievement pops. You do not need to spend the cash in one shot.

    So I don't get the point of saving up $50,000, spending it all at once and then getting your money back. What are you saving up for, a retirement package? Clothes are totally useless and you can only carry so much ammo and equipment. I think you are better off buying the best armed vehicles you can get because it will actually make it easier to complete missions and that way you get more money faster in the long run. Plus it is more fun to have better equipment as you play and rest assured you will get this achievement naturally long before you finish the game. I'm not down-voting the solution, this is just my opinion.

    Megadrivekid86Started new game plus after being 80% complete I hope I haven't glitched it. I'm hoping it's just went back to zero and I have to spend the money again.

    CraKeLLYou can use this trick without saving 50K, save up as much as you can then just buy them and fully quit (dash/quit game to home). Once you restart the game your cheevo progress will go up but you won't own the vehicles and you'll have the cash back.

    I saved up like 25k and just did it twice to get the max spend. Also, buy different cars on your restart as it can bug out

    VIDJOGAMESMASTRIs this able to be done in New Game Plus? The achievement, I mean. Not this specific method. When it says "Campaign only," does that include NG+?
