GTA 5 100% Gold Medal ‘Solid Gold, Baby’ Guide – All Missions

By   /   Sep 23, 2013

Grand Theft Auto franchise has always been one immersive franchise with players investing hundreds and thousands of hours playing the game. And the same tradition is being followed in Grand Theft Auto V as the game has endless opportunities for players to stick to it for long.

One of these things is earning medals (rewards) for completing each mission. This system is being introduced for the first time in Grand Theft Auto V and works in a simple manner. There are a few tasks and optional objectives which players can complete while playing a mission to earn either Gold, Silver, or bronze medal.

There are a total of 71 missions in the main storyline mode and 40 Strangers and Freaks missions. Completing these missions with certain requirements will net you gold medals.

Earning 70 Gold medals out of 111 while playing the game will unlock the ‘Solid Gold, Baby’ achievement/trophy.

The progress is shown at the end of a mission which can be replayed anytime to improve your performance. And lastly, these optional objectives which count towards your Gold medals collection progression can be seen anytime via Main Menu of the game. However, for your convenience, we have compiled a list of all these missions.
