Grand Theft Auto V isn’t just an online and standalone game, it is an entire universe. In that universe you want to broadcast who you are and how good you are at what you do. The best way to do that is to earn trophies. These trophies act as your badges of accomplishment, they not only let others know exactly who they are dealing with – but once you learn the trophies and what they mean, you will know who you want to pick to be on your team.
Online and offline trophies
Grand Theft Auto has their trophies split into different tiers – bronze, silver and gold. They also have some trophies that are only available when you play online. Make sure you know which you are going for so you are playing in the right environment.
Bronze – Full Refund
This is one of the most popular Grand Theft Auto Trophies to earn while you are online, simply for the sheer satisfaction of it. Just about everyone will get mugged in the game. Find your mugger and kill him and you will earn your “full refund.”
Bronze – Dialing Digits
This trophy may seem like it is easy to earn online at first, until you realize you have to have spent the time online to build a gang to earn it. You will get the award the very first time you call your gang for back up. This is when the real difference between playing on a home entertainment system and playing online really shows up.
Bronze – American Dream
This is an online trophy that is available in all versions of Grand Theft Auto V. To gain things you have to get the legal aspects of life down pat – but you can use some pre-patch glitches to help. You have to own an apartment with a garage and have an insured vehicle for this trophy.
Bronze – Altruist Acolyte
You have to have a victim to get this trophy, and an unsuspecting one at that. You can earn this trophy both online and off. To get it – grab a victim and deliver them to the Altruist Cult, make sure you don’t grab a secret member though, that could make things turn out much different than you suspect.
Silver – Decorated
This is another of the Grand Theft Auto V awards that crosses all versions but is only available with online play. You have to achieve 30 platinum awards in order to earn this trophy. The more time you put in online in registered competitions and challenges, the better your chance of winning this one.
Gold – Above the Law
This is one of the top of the line trophies that you can get and it is also a trophy that is only available in online play. To get it you have to play enough to reach the rank of 100. Be careful though, none of the scores you have achieved using a cheat are going to count towards this trophy. If you are taking advantage of any of the pre-patch glitches, that won’t affect you at all.
