Grand Theft Auto V Achievements


GTA Online: Earn 25 platinum medals across Heist Setups and Finales.   

In the Heist Update, platinum medals are rewarded to players who perform the best during a Heist Setup mission or Heist Finale. What constitutes performing above and beyond your crewmates are the number of kills and headshots one achieves, as well as accuracy and general contributions towards completing the main objective of the mission. After completing a Heist Setup mission or Heist Finale, you will be presented with the post-mission screen, which shows the players in the party and which tier medal they obtained: Bronze, Silver, Gold, and Platinum. 

Generally, the easiest way to obtain this achievement is to partner up with a single other player and continuously replay Lester’s first heist, “The Fleeca Job,” which is the only two-player heist available. In order to replay this heist, pull up your in-game phone and give Lester a call. A drop down menu on the upper left side of your screen will appear, so go ahead and select the option "Replay Heist > The Fleeca Job." Now wait a few seconds and Lester will call you back, informing you that the heist is now available to start (indicated by a green "H" icon in your apartment's planning room). 

During the first Setup mission here, the player going for the platinum medal should be the driver during the duration of the mission. As for the second Setup mission, the player going for the platinum medal should clear out most, if not all of the enemies around the Kuruma on the top level of the Del Perro parking garage, then proceed to drive the Kuruma to Lester’s warehouse. Lastly, during the Heist Finale, the player going for the platinum medal should be assigned the “Driver” role. 

Following the method described above, one player can net three platinum medals in a matter of 20-25 minutes over the course of the three aforementioned missions. As mentioned, you can continue to replay this heist multiple times, so grinding out the achievement on “The Fleeca Job” is by far the quickest way to obtain 25 platinum medals. Just take note that there is a 90-120 IRL cool down to replay this heist, which can prove to be a burden. To bypass this cool down period, please refer to THIS POST

If for whatever reason you lose track of your progress for this achievement, you can check how many platinum medals you currently have by following these steps: PAUSE > STATS > AWARDS > HEISTS > DECORATED AWARD. This award tracks how many platinum medals you have achieved. Thanks to Colonel Gray for this tip!

There are only 25 medals in the Heist category so I guess we need them all........ *sigh*

25 PLATINUM. Not bronze, silver, and gold. Think this is just mission ranking NOT the awards like in retail version.I did the first job twice and another once got a platinum on all 3 and in awards shows 3 out of 5 for the bronze

3 out of 5 platinum medals for the bronze I ment, there is a challenge for getting platinum rankings in missions. Pretty sure you just have to do that one challenge completely

To explain for anybody who hasn't played Heists yet, players are ranked after completing Heist missions with one Platinum, one Gold, one Silver and one Bronze medal distributed between them. This is for those medals and NOT the awards.

Whether or not it is for 25 specific ones, or 25 total, will affect how difficult this is to achieve.

To see platinum medal progress, go to Stats/Awards/Heists/Decorated

This tracks your platinum medal progression

These are not the platinum medals the same as the other Online achievement. When you do any Heist or set-up mission you get a rating varying from Platinum to Bronze. You have to be the best player out of 4 to achieve Platinum, and do this 25 times across all the missions. Easy enough you'll get 2-3 from the first heist without trying.

Got it today by just replaying the Fleeca Job.

Setup Missions:

First mission, make sure you drive everywhere

Second mission, make sure you kill a good amount of enemies and drive the Kuruma

Finale, make sure you are the driver and not the driller

Looking for help from 2 people with mics to complete Deliver EMP during the Humane Labs heist and then the heist itself.

Deliver EMP requires full team coordination and detection means failure which is why mics are essential. Once that is done we also need to complete the final two heists in full as well so anyone looking to gather coin is welcome. I'll guarantee a 25% cut.

Anyone interested message me on Xbox Live. We are online most evenings from 7pm GMT during weekdays and this weekend (though not Saturday night - out drinkin') and this is on Xbox 360.

NB: This total of 25 platinum medals is shared between both your characters - I had 15 with one and 10 with the other. You don't need to get the Decorated award.
#21 The EMP Delivery mission is good with a silenced Heavy Pistol and not the heavy/slow armour. Rush up to the pairs and shoot both. Sniper the rest - hope the fuck-wit others leave you to it.

" To bypass this cool down period, please refer to THIS POST. "

This post doesn't seem to exist anymore, does anyone know what the bypass trick was? Can it be added to this guide?

Comment #42 by Islandweller
Monday, March 06, 2017 @ 05:59:15 PM

Nevermind, found a better strategy. Play "The Fleeca Job" but when you've completed the second set-up mission, call Lester and cancel the heist. Then call him again and request to replay "The Fleeca Job", rinse and repeat. No cooldown period, no time to wait. Yea you have to put up 11,000 cash for every two platinum medals instead of the three for doing the whole heist, but if you have the money that shouldn't be an issue.
