There are a total of 104
Gold Medals you can achieve just from story missions. (NOT strangers)
You are able to replay missions from any chapter by pressing start
and selecting "PROGRESS". From here head into "STORY", it's the first tile you open up to, here you can select any chapter and replay any mission. Tips, Tricks and information.
You MUST achieve all
objectives in ONE playthrough. You can't play a mission and complete 1 objective and replay it again for another. You also can't transfer gold medals to another save. If you get 35 medals in one save, then create a new save, you must get greater than 35 medals for your achievement tracker to continue to make progress.
You can’t get a “FAIL
” or “DEAD
” screen if your objectives include overall time, headshots, or accuracy. If you do you must restart the mission from the beginning
Pausing the game WON'T effect time.General Tips for recurring objectives(Accuracy & Time):
New Save Method
Make sure to save your game after EVERY mission! The autosave feature can be very buggy/frozen, count023 said they lost 14 medals because of this broken feature.
You could use a money exploit near the start of the game or grind side missions for money so you can buy better guns, chewing tobacco and other tonics, better equipment and a better horse early on. Create a save before every mission, and reload the save if you fail the mission/objectives. REPLAY Method
The replay method is useful once you complete the game, as you should have a couple of gold medals under your belt already. Your current gear carries over to the replay mission, so you can stock up on ammo and tonics before replaying a mission. If you open the video walkthrough section you will find that I have rated each mission based on how difficult I found them. You can simply look at the easiest missions and choose to replay them. (I need to emphasise that these ratings are based on how I personally found each mission.)
You can't carry over completed objectives from one playthrough to the next, you must complete all the objectives in one playthrough.Video Walkthroughs (provided by GtaSeriesVideos)
I have added a star rating next to each mission which displays the mission difficulty in my opinion
. This is based on the rating I got on each mission, how many replays it took me and whether I needed a guide. A "★☆☆☆☆" rating says that a mission is the most difficult. A "★★★★★" rating means I completed it with ease. Again, this rating doesn't mean the missions will be easy/hard for YOU, but it's a useful tag to give you an idea of my playthrough.
Objectives may include spoilers, proceed with caution. Chapter 1
