GTA III 100% Completion Guide & Checklist (Definitive Edition)

On this page, you find the ultimate guide and checklist to achieve 100% Completion in GTA III, with all the required tasks. These include story missions, side missions, collectibles, and activities. Your progress towards GTA III 100% Completion can be tracked in the Pause Menu, in the "Stats" section.

Grand Theft Auto III is the first 3D game of the GTA series and was released in 2001. The new three-dimensional space coupled with the huge map consisting of three islands allowed the player a level of freedom scarcely found in other games. Several tasks are found in the world of GTA III, and all of the following need to be done for 100% completion of the game.

To ease your task of fully completing Grand Theft Auto III, we've created this full list of all the tasks required to achieve 100% completion in GTA 3. For each task, you can find out extra information by accessing the links to our GTA 3 Guides.

Obtaining 100% Completion in GTA III also unlocks the achievement/trophy "Is That All You’ve Got?". This GTA III 100% Completion Guide is also valid for the remastered Definitive Edition of the game.

NOTE: It is strongly advised to complete the Side Missions, Phone missions, and Collectibles as soon as possible on each island. The more you progress through the story, the more gangs will become hostile and armed, which will make it a lot harder to complete these tasks.

Plus, obtaining 100% Completion in GTA III unlocks the Achievement/Trophy "Is That All You’ve Got?".

Warning: GTA III 100% Completion Glitches

There are two potential glitches in GTA III that could prevent you from achieving 100% Completion. When playing through the game, be careful about these issues:

  • GTA III 100% Achievement Glitch: Do not leave the phone mission "Kingdom Come" until last. If this is your final item for 100% completion, the trophy/achievement "Is That All You’ve Got?" will not pop despite having 100% completion in your stats. Make sure you leave something else as your last objective to complete.

  • GTA III Purple Nines Glitch: After completing D-Ice's phone mission "Rumble", the Purple Nines gang members disappear from the city, which is intended. However, the issue is that their absence carries over when you start a new playthrough, which would stop you from achieving 100% completion on that new game file. If you need to start a new playthrough, make sure to first delete all of your saves - or alternatively, reload an existing save from the beginning of the game instead.
