Grand Theft Auto V Letter Scraps count as collectibles and toward 100% completion of the game, and the following guide reveals the complete map of GTA 5 Letter Scraps.
The GTA V Letter Scraps are similar to the Spaceship Parts scattered throughout Los Santo, but unlike the latter, they are harder to find because they don’t generate any sounds.
In other words, the Grand Theft Auto 5 Letter Scraps can be found only by visiting the locations on the map below, and even if you use Chop’s iFruit App, you will notice that finding all scraps can be challenging, because Chop can’t point to their locations.
How To Find The Collectibles Using Chop
There is a total of 50 Letter Scraps in GTA 5, and Chop can assist you in collecting them, if you use the iFruit app available on iTunes.
The app unlocks a new feature for Chop, which allows the dog to fetch the hidden collectibles when you get close to their locations; however, Chop can’t land on rooftops and the dog won’t be able to find the letter scraps on top of cranes or other locations that are hard to reach.
To find a GTA 5 Letter Scrap using Chop and the map below, get to one of the locations marked on the said map and then using the app installed on the phone, send Chop to fetch the letter scrap.
How To Find The Collectibles Without Chop
Most Letter Scraps in GTA 5 require your personal attention, as they are very well hidden and to reach their locations you have to allocate a decent amount of time.
If you wish to get 100% completion in GTA 5, you must find all Letter Scraps collectibles.
While other hidden items such as Toxic Waste Barrels, Secret Packages or Submarine Pieces require specific Strangers and Freaks, the Letter Scraps can be collected as soon as the game begins, and can be retrieved by any character.
The Scraps don’t generate sounds and they are pieces of a letter which is in fact a clue left by a killer, and after you get all pieces you will be allowed to decide the killer’s fate. The easiest method to get all GTA V hidden scraps is to use the map below along with the corresponding tips and hints included in the guide.
For each location you reach, you can see a number of the map. If you encounter difficulties in finding the Letter Scrap collectible, use the tips and hints provided to find it.
Additionally, you should be aware that once you get close to a location, you must take in consideration the game’s verticality.
In other words even if you are in the correct location, the Letter Scrap Collectible might be above you (on a roof, for example), or below you (in an underground tunnel, or a cave).
Another important aspect is that these collectibles are always located on land; therefore, they don’t require special items or equipment, allowing you to start looking for them as soon as you enter Los Santos.

After you get all Letter Scraps, a new Strangers and Freaks mission becomes available exclusively for Franklin, which takes him to Leonora Johnson’s killer, Dreyfuss. Dreyfuss is a strange character and once you talk to him you will start the mission named a Starlet in Vinewood.
To get 100% completion on this mission you must kill him, which is not an easy job, especially if you approach him directly.
If you wish to ensure your success on this mission, travel to the location marked on your map by an exclamation mark (?) (Killer) and shoot the tires of the car standing in front of the house. Make sure you use a silencer. Next, go inside and talk to Dreyfuss.
After Franklin shows the picture of Leonora, Dreyfuss will try to run away, but since he has no car that he can use, he will be an easy target. If you forget to shoot the tires, you will have to chase him, and shoot him down while he is inside his car.
Alternatively, you can plant sticky bombs on his car, or follow him as soon as he tries to flee, and shoot him down before he starts his vehicle.
