Awards Actions List

Last Updated:
The Awards System in GTAO harkens back to the sort of accomplishment sort of actions that are a well-established element in some of the previous games in the series.

Typically each Award has multiple Levels -- Bronze, Silver, Gold, and finally Platinum -- with each level requiring a specific target number for that action/activity. The Awards listed below have the required number of actions/Activities following them for just the Platinum Level. The Awards that have a '(*)' following them do not have multiple levels of Award - they are Platinum when unlocked.

Can you kill pedistrians and have it count for kills tryna get the 500 pistol tat

The Weapon Awards are Pistol, SMG, Shotgun, and Assault Rifle are 100 kills (Bronze), 200 Kills (Silver, and 500 Kills (Gold).

The official description for the Pistol Award just says “Less is more. Pistols are great for accurate kills. Lay inferior players to rest using your choice of Pistol.”

Obviously that implies that you get the stat for killing players - but I decided to test this just to be sure, so I went into GTA5O and I shot some pedestrians (NPCs) with the pistol.

The kills stat for the Pistol incremented with each NPC pedestrian killed - so far, so good. BUT the stats for the Award does NOT increment. It can only be incremented by killing PLAYERS. Sorry mate, it was a good idea but sadly doesn't work.
