The following is the list of achievements and trophies in Grand Theft Auto V. Altogether, there are 49 achievements/trophies in GTA V, plus the PlayStation-exclusive Platinum Trophy. 17 of these awards can only be achieved in Grand Theft Auto Online.
A 50th achievement and a 51st trophy were added to the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions of the game respectively, related to the new first person view. To accommodate this extra award, the gamerscore/trophy grade of several other awards were lowered on both systems; see the tables below for details.
