    I made this video to point out the location for the unlimited points glitch on the city map.
    All Credit for the original guide goes to RudeN4t3d4w6.

    Make sure you save the game (options menu) at approx. 990 miles, load your last save and then just drive the last 10 miles.

    Hope it helps toast


    Glitch also works for the RUS & JP version of the game.

    Skaos3010Be aware that there are two Luncheonette shops on that street. One does't work. The one with the RED brick building (like in the video) is the one you need @TBx UNR34L. Worth checking...

    1000 miles = 1609,34 km
    Just to help out fellow europeans since our stats are tracked in kilometers instead of miles. Unlocked with no problem for me, boosted to around 1587km then drove the rest on the highway.

    RayvenMorriganaYou can change whether you view miles or km in the options menu as well

    This is a breakdown of miles/mile per hour for the 3 methods mentioned to grind this achievement out. I got all of these with a super-charged Ascot Bailey.

    Unlimited Point Glitch = 21-23/mph. This was with a rubber band holding down Right Trigger. Best for bedtime boosting.

    Reverse Circles = 12-15/mph. Slowest method by far because gas actually has a direct effect.

    Driving the Bridge = 70-75/mph. Defiantly the fastest but requires you to actually do it, therefore the most boring.
    ** Bridge Tip** - To get the best time out of this, I filled to a full tank then went and started "Walker Rocket Theft" on the map left of the bridge. I would then quit out so it saves my car there with a full tank of gas. Then whenever I ran out of gas or wrecked my car, I would just change an option to save then reload last checkpoint. Instant fresh car with a full tank and a short trip back to the bridge. Downside is the points don't save, just the miles.

    Hope that helps people in deciding which method to go with. Good Luck!

    Mobius EvalonI tried this out considering it takes 40 hours, and a 5 hour average with the trigger banded and not banded was both 25 mph. The rubberbanded gas pedal makes no difference whatsoever.

    GTAmissions1@datDandyx: You need to go into the options menu and change a setting (subtitles is the easiest) and it will save the miles.

    Can confirm that I am still running the glitch and racked up roughly around 600 to 700 miles. That is the only way to save your progress.

    Glitch still working as of June 3/20. Will report back once achievement unlocks.

    EDIT: Just unlocked it after doing the last final miles. Stopped the glitch at 990 miles and driven the rest

    The AiKWhen I do that it shows me the saving animation/logo. But when I go to load the save it puts me back to where I last saved manually.

    EDIT: I just checked again. The game counts the miles but not the points. Sorry. :)
