Rockstar Games tried hard to land at that magic number.
GTA 5 was lauded back in the day for its then-next-gen graphics, interactive open-world environment, and wonderful storyline. Ten years later, Grand Theft Auto 5 remains a viral game that many players enjoy, thanks to its awesome online content and moddable nature.
We have listed all the available missions for GTA 5 in this guide in case you want to replay the game’s story mode to get nostalgia or are just wondering how many missions are in GTA 5.
How Many Missions Are in GTA 5?
Rockstar Officially listed 69 missions for GTA 5. However, the real number is 83 if you count in Heists and the Assassination Missions given by Lester. If we are looking for the number of missions that can only be played in a single playthrough (in typical single-player story mode fashion), then we are looking at just 74 missions.
So why did Rockstar Games declare a number less than the actual number of missions found in-game? Rockstar Games will be Rockstar Games, which means the jokes and parodies do not end when you exit GTA 5. In an attempt to land at the number 69, Rockstar Games decided to omit the following missions from the total missions count:
- BZ Gas Grenades;
- Fire Truck;
- All three Family Missions (Michael).
There is no other logical explanation why Rockstar Games officially declared a total number of missions that is less than the actual number found in-game – to make hilarious references that fit the entire Grand Theft Auto theme.
