Unlike the other games, GTA San Andreas has extra tasks that are not required for the achievement but are also available to complete; many players refer to this as "110%".
To attain 100% completion in GTA San Andreas, the player must accomplish all of the following:
(The main categories and individual tasks of list are in order of availability in the timeline. Note that the main categories order has preference upon its individual tasks. An example of this are the odd job missions; all of them except the Freight Train mission can be done at the beginning of the game. However, as the Freight Train missions can only be done after Las Venturas, Bone County and Tierra Robada regions are unlocked the whole main category goes down the list. The individual tasks inside a main category are still in order.)
