  • Crate Chaser – Get to crate drops first [25]

  • The Fugitive – Spend time with a wanted level [120] – Accumulative of 120 minutes of having a wanted level. Not sure weather the amount of stars matter, just need to have a wanted level. Can be done easily if aboard a train and have helicopters on you. Just fight it out for however long you desire and jump out when inside a tunnel.
  • The Police Mocker – Evade 5 star wanted levels [25] – Can be difficult, best strategy is to use a fighter jet or buzzard to accumulate 5 stars. Then out fly the helicopters or proceed to a train tunnel (Works for me).

  • Death By Drive-By – Get enemy drive-by kills from a friend’s passenger seat [100]
  • Vehicle Thief – Steal vehicles [500] – Very time consuming. I found if you want to grind, go to the Los Santos Customs (Far east side under the freeway) and steal cars from that intersection. Once wanted level is obtained proceed to the L.S.C and drive in losing the wanted level. You can also attach a sticky bomb to a stolen car park it in the middle of the inter section and proceed to steal cars. Once you have a wanted level start to drive towards the L.S.C then blow up the car, this should give you a 3 star wanted level and net you a 300RP once your go inside the L.S.C (Losing the wanted level) you can also sale cars as when I was trying this method Felon GT and Baller SUVs were showing up regularly.

  • No Claims Bonus – Drive for 30 consecutive minutes without damage to your car [30] – To grind this simple go to the Los Santos Airport and rubber band your joystick (so car goes around in circles) and trigger (so car accelerates, not to fast though the car just has to be in motion).
  • The Passenger – Spend time in a friend’s car as a passenger [5] – 5 Hours total.
