This guide will give you detailed tips on how to get every trophy in Grand Theft Auto IV, the list of trophies is bronze, silver, gold, and platinum in that order. The trophies are not in alphabetical order, they are in the order the video game publisher put them in. Published by DLB-Network.com.
|Off The Boat||5G|
|You have completed the first mission.|
TIP – Simply complete the first mission, you are pretty much guaranteed to finish this mission if you want to do anything at all, including saving your game.
|One Hundred And Eighty||10G|
|You scored 180 with 3 darts.|
TIP – Do to a ‘Darts’ place (best found from a taxi ride) and go inside and play a game of darts. You have to get 180 points with your three darts, so throw all three of your darts at the bottom red strip under ’20′. If you get all three darts to hit it then you will get a score of 180, simple as that! If you still don’t quite get it the video below will help you out.
|You beat a friend at pool.|
TIP – Call a friend with your cell phone and invite him to a game of pool, when you arrive to a pool place start a game with your friend. Once you hit the first ball the game usually automatically gives you a reasonably good shot at a ball when it’s your turn, most of the time getting it in a hole which is easy for you. (especially if you’re not a pool shark).
|King of QUB3D||15G|
|You beat the high score in CUB3D.|
TIP – If you find yourself good at Tetris, maybe this game wont be so hard but this can be rather frustrating for some people, it’s either the annoying gameplay or the terrible soundtrack on loop or maybe both, seeing as I got a friend that is good at Tetris to do this for me I have no real good tips, except use those bonus powers you get through the game. These videos should help you though.
|You completed 10 melee counters in 4 minutes. |
TIP – The easiest way to do this is go to helitours on the very southeastern tip of Algonquin (middle island) when you unlock it. There is a divider that you can stand at and wait for people to walk up in the line at helitours, throw a punch at someone with the divider between him and you, the divider helps knocks out less health when punched, dodge punches then punch back. Almost everyone in this line is willing to start a fight so it should be rather simple here, if you’re running low on health there is a hot dog vender a few feet away close to the road. Better details can be seen in this video below.
Video – Easily get Finish Him Trophy or Achievement
|You came first in 20 singleplayer street races. |
TIP – Very time consuming, the game requires you to finish about half of this to increase percentage done towards 100% in the game but this trophy wants you to do it 20 whole times, This will take a good bit of time but it doesn’t matter if you do the same race over, and over again as long as you finish them in first.
|You completed a 500 foot wheelie on a motorbike. |
TIP – Not hard at all, possibly the hardest part is finding the bike (bikes can be found in a bike shop Alderny, the last island you unlock, if you don’t know the exact location of the bike shop, this map will help. the best place to preform this with the least possibility of crashing is on an interstate in ongoing traffic with no intersections. The interstate connecting Broker to Bohan (first two islands unlocked) is a good spot.
|You got a turkey in 10-pin bowling.|
TIP – To easily get a turkey (3 strikes) in bowling, first go to the counter and select a full game of bowling, then go to the bowling alley on the far left side of the building, grab a ball and walk two full steps to the left then pull the right stick back for one second then push it forward. Niko then releases the ball and should easily get a strike, do this three times in a row to get a turkey. The video below best shows how to do it.
|Driving Mr. Bellic||10G|
|You unlocked the special ability of Roman’s taxi. |
TIP – To receive this, you have to get 75% above Roman’s friendship and he will call you telling you that you can use his cab service any time. To view your friend status with Roman go to the games pause menu and go to stats and friends. To gain friend status, simply call Roman and take him to eat at a restaurant since this gains the most percentage of friendship.
|You managed 5 car rolls in a row from one crash. |
TIP – This is a hard situation to run into on a regular basis, but luckily there is an easy way to get this in the airport, you will get 5 stars entering but the police don’t really get in your way. Go to the runway and you will see these types of ramps that say ‘Caution – Your Blast’ … You have to jump these ramps with a vehicle and you will soon hit the ground flipping five times, it may matter what vehicle you use and the video below showed getting this when the car hit the ramp by skidding into it sideways. The video below goes into better detail on how to do this.
|You successfully lost a 4 star wanted rating. |
TIP – Eventually this will be required of you in certain story missions. But if you don’t want to wait for that drive into the United Nations building in Algonquin or the airport in Broker to easily get 5 stars, then drive out of the search radius.
|You completed all 10 package delivery jobs.|
TIP – Little Jacob soon calls you offering missions to deliver his packages after you’ve finished doing story missions for him, this is all done through your cell phone and the 10 jobs you do are fairly simple.
|You unlocked the special ability of buying guns from Little Jacob. |
TIP – To receive this, you have to get 75% above Little Jacob’s friendship and he will call you telling you that you can buy guns from him at any time.

To gain friend status, simply call Little Jacob and take him to eat at a restaurant since this gains the most percentage of friendship.
|You exploded 10 vehicles in 10 seconds. |
TIP – The best place to do this is Star Junction (Times Square) which is located in the middle of the third island you unlock. Buy a few grenades and stack up on rocket launcher ammunition and park as many cars as you can in front of an intersection and wait for more than 10 cars to be trapped behind your barricade, throw a few grenades at the traffic and then quickly get your rocket launcher out and start shooting, after a few tries you should get this. (NOTE: You do NOT have to save your game after this in case you think that rocket launcher ammo may cost you.)
|You completed the mission “Roman’s Sorrow”.|
TIP – Simply complete the mission Roman’s Sorrow. This mission takes place when you unlock Bohan, the second island, you will know when that happens, trust me.
|You completed all 10 Exotic Export orders. |
TIP – Brucie starts to e-mail you after doing several story missions for him and he asks you to get random cars in specific locations. You can access your e-mail via the tw@ internet cafes around the city. Do ten of these missions to earn this trophy/achievement.
|You completed the most wanted side mission. |

TIP – Simply complete the story mission Uncle Vlad which is done early in the game on Broker, the first island.
|It’ll Cost You||5G|
|You made a taxi trip from one island to another without skipping. |
TIP – The quickest way to get this is to find a taxi close to a bridge on any island and tell them to go to the next island nearest to you, they will cross a bridge but you cannot skip by pressing X/A throughout the entire trip.
|You have taken all variations of the helicopter tours of Liberty City. |
TIP – When you unlock the third island, Algonquin you will have access to the helitours area at the very southeastern part of the island, there are three total helicopters that can be parked here, simply go to all three of these helicopters and take the tours, this will be $150 each but you don’t have to save your game after getting this achievement/trophy.
|You were invited into your girlfriend’s house. |

TIP – Simply complete the mission called Museum Piece which will be completed while in Algonquin, the third island.

|You Got The Message||20G|
|You delivered all 30 cars ordered through text message. |
TIP – Stevie, Brucie’s friend, sends you a text message asking you to find a car in the game, once you find it you are required to send it to his garage in Bohan, the second island that you unlock. Do this 30 times to get the trophy.

|Cut Your Teeth||5G|
|You were successfully promoted up a rank in multiplayer.|

TIP – Easy, especially if you’re good at races. The best way to do this is for you and your friend to participate in a race
|Fly The Co-op||15G|
|You completed “Deal Breaker”, “Hangman’s NOOSE” and “Bomb da Base II” in time.|
TIP – Pardon my French, but this one is complete bulls*it. It’s best to do this with 2 other skilled friends (three friends total). One person has to be good with the helicopter and one with the car. Before starting a game remember to discuss what vehicle seats you will sit in and your main roles to make the process speedy, run with a lightweight gun to increase speed, HAVE MICS, communicating is vital when it comes to this trophy/achievement. I will give you the actual times for these games. Good luck sucker! (you can do these with different hosts, even with your friends. Try to look up glitches you can do in these, one in Bomb da Base II is especially good.)
|Taking it For The Team||10G|
|You were on the winning team in all multiplayer team games. |

TIP – The easiest way to do this is to play with a few friends in deathmatch and try to persuade them to run toward you so you can shoot them down with your pistol, keep repeating this until you get 20 kills with your pistol and you should get this trophy/achievement. You can also host a match and do pistols only on Happiness Island on deathmatch if you are unable to find friends.
|Top The Midnight Club||20G|
|You won 20 different multiplayer standard races. |
TIP – The best way to get this is if you were host, invite a patient friend to your game which can take a loss and doesn’t care about their shitty online record and race every standard races, be sure to remember every race you finish so you don’t backtrack, helicopter races also count. YOU MUST ATTEMPT THIS ALL IN ONE. When you jump into a lobby with a friend, do 20 races without cutting out of the lobby and you should get this.
|Auf Wiedersehen Petrovic||30G|
|You won in all variations of multiplayer games.|
TIP – Be in first place of every online game, doing this with your friends will possibly be the quickest way to do this, unless you are as amazing as you say you are to your friends, then getting this trophy/achievement without your friends should be just as easy, right? Anyway, you have to do all game modes on online multiplayer including cops and robbers as all for one and all for one winning on both sides. Also you must complete all races with all vehicles, all locations and all GTA races, you can do the races with your friends.
|Let Sleeping Rockstars Die||10G|
|You killed a Rockstar in multiplayer. |
TIP – You have to kill somebody in multiplayer that has a zombie costume for their character, which a lot of people do, you will most likely randomly get this one by shooting someone, they don’t have to be wearing the costume either.

|One Man Army||40G|
|You survived a 6 star wanted level for a full 5 minutes. |
TIP – Not too hard, the best place to hide from the police is one of the safehouses you acquire in Algonquin (third island you unlock) for five full minutes.
|You completed all the unique stunt jumps. |
TIP – There are 50 unique stunt jumps scattered throughout the city, NOTE: there are two jumps in south Alderny (lat island) that seem to not like when cars jump off of them so you will have to use a bike, or else you will spend hours trying to get them and failing, just telling you now so you don’t waste your time like I did. (these jumps are when you launch off the highway) The videos below will help you out.
|You collected every hidden package in the game. |
TIP – Shoot all of the 200 pigeons scattered throughout the city, while playing through the game try to retain from shooting these, if you do, remember where you shot it. When you start your hunt start from one and go in order to 200, it’s best to keep a map handy throughout this entire process. The videos below will help you, haaaave fun.
|Liberty City (5)||20G|
|Your friends all like you above 90%. |
TIP – It is recommended that you do this all at once, Roman and Dwayne do not count, simply call a friend and take him somewhere (going to a restaurant takes the least time) and after you drop him off call the next friend on your call list on your cell phone and do the same, keep doing this cycle until you eventually get this trophy. To view what percentage your friends like you just select statistics, then friends in the in-game start menu.
|You have completed the story.|

|Liberty City Minute||30G|
|You finished the story in less than 30 hours.|
TIP – If you just work straight on the story without much breaks then you will finish this up in around half the required time. This means that you won’t have to worry about timing too much, to check your total time playing the game, go to the statistics section on your start menu.
|Key to the City||100G|
|You completed GTA IV to 100%.|
TIP – These are the required things to get 100% in-game.
|You achieved the highest personal rank possible in multiplayer. |
TIP – Possibly the hardest and most time-consuming trophy in this game, 20 gamerscore my ass.. So you pretty much have to reach rank 10 in GTA IV’s online multiplayer which takes longer and longer as you rank up. People say the quickest way to do this is to play Hangman’s NOOSE on hard mode with other actually good players in the shortest time possible, those mission specific online games give you a lot of experience. Have fun with this one.
|Taking a Liberty|
|Sorry for taking liberties with your time!|
TIP – As the description states, you will have much of your time wasted, especially attempting to get those online trophies. This platinum trophy is only available for PlayStation users who got all bronze, silver, and gold trophies in the game.
