For a list of missions in Grand Theft Auto Online, see Missions in GTA Online.


The following is a list of missions featured in Grand Theft Auto V. In the game, many missions are available at the same time from multiple characters, so this list does not reflect any required chronological order of completion. Each character's respective missions, however, can only be completed in the order listed. And, of course, some characters and their respective missions may not be unlocked until certain missions are completed.

In total, there are 69 story missions, which are the following:

Trivia

  • Despite the fact that both the in-game statistics and the Social Club say Grand Theft Auto V only has 69 missions, the game actually has 79 main story missions. This was likely done to make the 69 reference. This is also due to the fact that the player can not play every mission in one playthrough, as many are dependent on the choices made.
