Without money, there’s nothing going on in GTA Online – no new cars, no planes, no cool weapons. We explain to you how you, alone or in a team, are rummaging through your first million.
In the vast open world of GTA Online, there are many ways to spend money – but of course that must first be on your account before you can afford thick sports cars, yachts, real estate, planes and gilded weapons.
It depends heavily on whether you want to play alone or with a solid group on the road. Some options only work well in groups or become extremely hectic or very difficult on their own. Our guide to making quick money in GTA Online therefore treats the most convenient ways for both ways of playing.
You will learn in this guide:
which purchases are worthwhile in the money-making phase
how you can comfortably make money as a solo player in different phases of the game
which joint activities are financially worthwhile for group players
what you have to pay special attention to certain activities
Note: At GTA Online, there are bonus weeks in which you receive double cash and RP revenue on an alternate type of mission – taking advantage of such opportunities for double money at the same cost. The Rockstar Social Club always shows you which bonuses you can currently get.
1.GTA 5 General Tips
If you are mainly traveling alone or with just one friend, you should avoid unnecessary expenses . When you’re making your fortune, do not buy expensive vehicles and spend your money only on weapons that you often use.
It is worthwhile to use two-handed weapons as well as single-handed firearms such as the Mini / Micro-MP, as you can use them to shoot from a moving car. In addition, a melee weapon like a baseball bat is an alternative if you run out of ammo in a hot fight!
Once you have enough money, buy only the cheapest house with a small garage. Focus on a single car, such as the Kuruma, which features armor and bullet-proof tires on Los Santos Customs, making missions in the open world much more enjoyable.
At the marina in the city center (Puerto del Sol Marina) or at the airfields in the Grand Senora Desert (Sandy Shores Airfield) and Grapeseed (MacKenzie Airfield) steal the helicopters that spawn there to speed you through the city and to missions. The Frogger flies from the unarmed helicopters most comfortable for flight beginners. The Buzzard is your armed and nimble model of choice, but does not stand up to much fire.
When playing in the group, CEO (or VIP) bodyguards regularly earn a certain amount (starting at $ 6,000). Salary , biker club members are also paid to participate in procurement and sales missions. So even if you help friends with their labs, bunkers or warehouses, you do not go crazy!
2.make money gta 5 single player
If you move in the open world, look out for models like Lampadati Felon GT (convertible version) or Sentinel’s superiority. These can be sold at each Los Santos Customs for 9000-95000 $, other regular cars bring less profit.
You can sell a stolen car every 50 minutes , so use this option mainly between other tasks. If you catch a (rare) vehicle with special paint, there is also a lot more money in the sale.
From time to time Simeon calls you and tells you which cars he is currently looking to buy. If one of the cars on his list steals, drive to a Los Santos Customs and paint the car cheaply, you will get a waymarker for Simeon’s Warehouse (and its sale) on your card.
Did you buy a CEO business later in the game, buy a cheap vehicle warehouse, and select the Vehicle Hire option on your computer in your office to start an auto-clue mission. Steal the vehicle and bring it as undamaged as possible to your warehouse – you pay repair costs yourself! In the vehicle warehouse, you mock up the car on the computer and sell it over it.
For sales drives, it’s best to dodge opponents as quickly as possible, as the damage they inflict on your vehicle reduces profits.
For maximum profit their cars collect the standard and middle class without selling them. If you ever have all the cars of these two classes in the camp, you will only get missions for upper-class vehicles , as the game avoids duplication in the camp itself. If you only sell top-class cars, this increases the profit significantly.
Alternatively, you can buy a small special-goods warehouse and select the option »Special Freight« on your computer in your office. Buy one or two boxes (three do not have a good cost / effort ratio) to start a special freight procurement mission, collect the cargo and bring it to your warehouse.
If the warehouse is full, you can sell the cargo for a reasonable profit alone. Make sure that your delivery vehicle is armored and padded so that the first attack by enemies does not present you with a problem.
Note: CEO sales and specialty shipments are also fairly easy to do in the group game, but the existing alternatives such as bunker supply and sales, as well as the sale of full stock biker club stores, are more rewarding.
Complete daily goals
At GTA Online, you get assigned to each of the new real-time goals at around 6 or 7 am in the morning, the completion of which brings you $ 25,000 and 3,000 RP. If you manage to complete all of your daily goals for a full month , $ 1.5 million will be rewarded. Especially fair: it only counts logged in days, it does not come into play for a few days, you do not lose the progress!
Challenges and shop raids
For a few bucks in between, you take part in the regular, short-term Open World Challenges – for example, “drive the longest way back without accident” or something similar. If you get one of the top seats, there is money and RP as a reward. As a good driver you can also in the race to participate in the Open World, the better you cut, the higher the prize money.
Alternatively, you “visit” the small shops scattered throughout the world, where you usually buy snacks and drinks, and threaten the salesman with a gun until he throws you a purse of $ 1,500- $ 10,000. Leave the store going backwards, otherwise the seller will shoot you in the back. After that you only have to successfully escape from the police!
In the list of available jobs , look for tasks where you have to fight against opponents and set the difficulty ‘hard’ so that you get more money and RP.
Jobs take place in instanced environments, so you do not have to worry about your fellow players and can do the job calmly and at your own pace. In the loading screen you can also buy ammunition and armor.
gta 5 vip missions
From a million on the bank you can register for VIP missions , all of which run in the Open World. For solo players, the “city tour” mission is particularly worthwhile as you can earn up to $ 25,000. Here you should be careful to take at least 10 minutes from the 15 minute time limit, as the game oddly enough only pays out the full pay.
Alternatively, in “Leadership Escape,” try to stay alive for ten minutes without other players killing you – keep in constant motion to find a potentially empty or peaceful game session for that mission
gta 5 motorcycle club businesses
If you have any money left, get yourself a biker club and buy the cheapest coke lab. This can provide you with resources by launching supply missions and returning the stolen supplies to the lab . The lab only produces its product while you are active in GTA Online, so doing something else during the production phase.
If a maximum of two and a half bars of product is available, you start a sales mission and deliver the goods to their buyers . Important: The product quantity is sized so that you can do it with some planning to sell everything alone within the time limit. It should not be more product if you do not want to lose.
Make money playing in the group
As with single-player earning, you should look for missions where you have to kill enemies. Set the level of difficulty to ‘heavy’ and make sure your teammates stay alive during the instanced job – the more comfortable the banger becomes. At around $ 15,000 and $ 3,000 per job, you’ll make a decent amount of money on a night’s play, without even a team member having to own a business or a biker club.
Gangster boss Martin Madrazo regularly provides you with new assignments, where you have to bring a goal around with at least one other team member . With $ 15,000 and 3000RP, the merit is a good extra for not too much effort – you drive to the destination, clears the way to the goal free, kills the target, flees from the police, ready!
Heists / robberies
No matter if you do the Fleeca robbery or the more sophisticated Heists for four people with only one player, the client has to high-end apartment with planning space. He goes with the cost of the robbery in advance, but then may distribute the loot.
If you’re part of a solid team, you’ll be able to allocate the tasks involved in a robbery, such as flying a plane, chopping a car, or stealing cars from the players who are the best at it. For the Fleeca robbery beckons $ 100,000, in the other, multi-stage preparations to prepare robbery beckons significantly more profit.
For the quick buck in between you start in a biker club house one of the three proposed missions , which can best be done with three to four players. These usually consist of protection, rescue and destruction tasks, so are not a great challenge for experienced players.
If you have bought a bunker, a coke or a lab, you supply this together with the players with stolen goods and then sells the product produced during your online time . Of course, you can also afford the hemp plantation or a counterfeiting or document counterfeiting business, but there the ratio between effort and profit is much lower.
Beware: While the sales missions from the Coke and Met lab are still relatively relaxed, bunker sales missions have hard time limits and more demanding tasks to complete. But a full bunker brings a lot of money – over $ 1 million per successful sale!
As a player with some cash on the bench and ideally all sales opportunities (coke, meth, hemp, counterfeiters, document counterfeiters, bunkers, special cargo) you create a nightclub and equip it with up to five technicians, sales vehicles and an enlarged warehouse.
Assign the technicians to individual storage tasks and then you just wait. While doing any other work on GTA Online, technicians passively store goods in the night club deposit, depending on the chosen business , until the corresponding supply bar is filled. When a bar is full, you assign the technician to a task in which nothing has yet been stored.
Once your camp is completely filled – Gay Tony calls you and complains about the too small camp – you go to the sales mission.
Important: Make sure you buy the largest possible sales vehicle and mates it with armor, bulletproof tires and armament, which makes the sale much easier. Sale vehicles in the standard version last as well as nothing and as soon as they suffer too much damage, you go the profit of the contained goods flutes!
