7 Best Unlockables That Were Worth All the Hassle

Unlock, stock and barrel

They say hard work is its own reward but a much better reward is an actual reward. Videogames agree, which is why they offer bonuses that are definitely worth the effort it takes to unlock them. Here are seven of our favourites.

Take Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, for example, which is your classic rags to riches story in that protagonist CJ starts out with nothing and through hard work, dedication and several hundred drive-bys, ends up owning a jetpack. Or at least he does if you unlock it by completing the side mission Black Project.

In this mission twitchy conspiracy theorist The Truth drops you at the perimeter of a secret government facility, tells you that a 'black project' is being developed there, and then buggers off, leaving you to break into the facility, kill hundreds of soldiers and steal the project all by yourself.

This monumental hassle is fully justified, however, when you discover that the project you're stealing is none other than a genuine, bonafide, electrified, rocket powered jet pack.

Not sure we've got anywhere to park a jetpack back on Grove Street, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. Cross it easily. Because we've got a jetpack.
