The [[Achievements in GTA IV|achievement/trophy]] ''"No More Strangers"'' for GTA IV involves meeting and helping out the required characters and the characters that are still alive at least once. For example, [[Jeff]] is not required for [[100%]] , but you have to do at least one of his missions to get the [[Achievements and Trophies in GTA IV|achievement/trophy]].

Random characters are minor characters found around the game world with whom the player can interact, often providing the player with a small bonus mission or objective. They have appeared in every game in the HD Universe with the exception of Grand Theft Auto Online.

DescriptionEdit

GTA IV, EFLC and Chinatown WarsEdit

Their presence is indicated by a small blue person icon on the radar, but only when within close proximity to the player (Usually around 1 block). They provide Niko, Johnny, Luis and Huang with small missions. They generally are in some problem and will ask the Protagonist's help.

After completing all the random encounters in GTA IV, the achievement/trophy "No More Strangers" will be unlocked. Most of the random character missions are required for 100% completion. Though some are not required (like Cherise Glover's random encounter).

GTA VEdit

In Grand Theft Auto V random characters are known as Strangers and Freaks. They take elements from the Strangers featured in Red Dead Redemption, which means that even after starting one of this side missions, the player is still free to roam around the map and complete other missions.

There are a total of 58 Strangers and Freaks missions, though only a specific 20 of them are required for 100% Completion.
