1. Grand Theft Auto IV Walkthrough Overview

Hello and welcome to the Grand Theft Auto IV Walkthrough on TrueAchievements! This walkthrough has been written as detailed as possible to include the 50 main game achievements, the 5 achievements in The Lost and Damned DLC pack, and the 10 in The Ballad of Gay Tony DLC.

To make your journey playing GTA IV an effective one, you'll need a semi-automatic weapon (obviously you won't have access to one early on in the game, but it will come with time) with plenty of ammo, body armor and a decent car. There are video guides for a vast majority of the achievements, but some are so easy that it really is not needed. I would suggest printing a 100% guide for the main storyline so that you know where you are, and also a guide for all of the multiplayer game-types, so you know which of these you have completed, both of which I have provided. However, if you follow this walkthrough, then you may well not need them as I will try to present this guide in the most user-friendly way possible.

This walkthrough will go over each and every story mission across the main game and both pieces of DLC, giving you tips and alternative ways of completing the missions, possibly making them slightly easier if you are struggling with the conventional approach. The most important piece of information that I can give you at this time is to not do any of the side quests until you have completed the main story, as this will make getting the Liberty City Minute achievement much harder.

Unfortunately, there are spoilers in this walkthrough - it is necessary to make it flow well. I've tried not to reveal anything major until the relevant mission that it occurs in, so be careful not to read too far ahead! I will also assume that you have played any missions prior to the one you are reading about, so there may be spoilers. Again, be careful when reading!

I'd like to thank all the YouTube users whose videos I've used in this walkthrough, and also Tasty Pastry and MxSvnty4 for allowing me to finish writing this walkthrough, as well as helping me revise and edit it! My biggest thanks go to Starlight126, who worked on the entirety of the DLC sections, and without whom, I probably would not have finished this guide.

If you are having any problems with any aspect of the game, please do not hesitate to contact me here. I have it set up so that when I receive a Private Message on the site, I receive an e-mail, and my e-mail is set up on my phone, meaning that I will receive it immediately, and hopefully be able to get back to you as soon as possible.
