This guide is split into sections; Introduction, Tips & Tricks, General Tips for recurring objectives (Accuracy, time etc.), New Save
method and finally Video walkthrough.Introduction.
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. Your guns & gear won’t carry over! You will be given the bare minimum needed to complete each mission. However, plenty of people prefer using the replay method as you already have gold medal progress, you will be familiar with the story and remember your experiences so you can choose to replay the missions that weren't difficult for you. Either method works and has it's perks. 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!
I highly recommend creating a new save exclusively for this achievement. I found myself genuinely enjoying the story once again and didn’t get annoyed so much on my progress with the gold medals. If you choose to do this I recommend using a money exploit as soon as possible or grinding side missions for money since with this you can buy better guns, chewing tabacco and other tonics, better equipment and a better horse AND you’ll be able to use them for every mission. In “Replay” you will not have any of your things with you. Create a save before every mission, and reload the save if you fail. Stock up on ammo and tonics and you will be fine!REPLAY Method
I found that a lot of people would prefer using the replay feature over creating a new save, for efficiency, personal preference and for the satisfaction of having a 100% game save WITH the gold medal. I understand why you would prefer using replay.
The replay feature, I thought, was a bit more difficult as you don't have any of your saved gear and the game provides you with the basics needed to complete the mission. However, there are a lot of missions where the gold objectives are fairly easy- If you open the video walkthrough section you will find that I have rated each mission; Aim to complete the easy missions first as the gear given to you won't make/break your outcome and these mission should be easy to complete.
In the replay option you are able to see what objectives you have/haven't got in that current replay (bare in mind, if you complete an objective it WON'T carry over to another replay, you must complete ALL objectives in a single playthrough of a mission. If you press the back button you are able to see the status for the current mission, restart or quit the mission and you are able to see the objectives.
Replaying missions will be easier if you have already got a lot of gold medals, so you WILL SAVE TIME using this method if you already have progress toward it.
LOOT LOOT LOOT- the key to using the replay feature is that you can get a lot of your gear from dead enemies, they will have a lot of chewing tobacco which you can use to get more dead-eye. Using Chewing tobacco WON'T effect your objective to not eat/drink health items. 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 (if any ) and whether I needed a guide. A "★☆☆☆☆" rating says that a mission is the most difficult. A "★★★★★" rating means I completed it with with ease. This difficulty was based on a new save NOT replay.
Objectives may include spoilers, proceed with caution. Chapter 1
