While we wait for the next Grand Theft Auto game to be released, it’s good to know that the developers have not stopped working on the online aspect of the game.

A lot of people are waiting for the answer to the question: “Is there any way to make money in Grand Theft Auto Online (GTAO) besides heists?” Well, let me tell you — there are many ways to make money in GTAO, but they don’t all need to be heists. In this blog post, I will tell you about some of the ways to make money in GTAO without having to commit a single heist. So if you’re looking for an easy way to make money in GTAO without having to commit a heist, keep reading.

PVP – Player versus Player

Player versus Player (PVP) is a mode in GTAO where you can fight other players online for money and/or materials. You can choose from a variety of PVP modes (some say there are even more than 10) such as Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Last Man Standing, etc. Every mode has its perks and perks. For example, in Team Deathmatch, you get a kill reward if you’re the first to be killed rather than the last. In other words, the game determines what you get based on how you play. It keeps track of your performance in-game and adjusts the rewards according to your gameplay style.

In PVP, you’re usually going to want to use a Gunstar. Not only is it one of the safest weapons to use in GTAO, but it also has a decent rate of fire and can be used to great effect against multiple enemies. For those that want to go the extra mile, a Flamethrower is also a great choice. It doesn’t have the strongest splash damage, but it does have the ability to set multiple enemies on fire, which makes it very useful in PVP. Just make sure you’ve got plenty of ammo because the weapon is pretty light.

Criminal Activities

Besides PVP, you can also work your way up the criminal hierarchy in GTAO and perform different heists for monetary gain. However, this is probably the easiest way to make money in GTAO, and probably the least fun. You’ll be doing most of the work, and the game doesn’t provide much in the way of motivation or excitement. If you want to get money quickly, this is a good option.


If you’re looking to make quick cash in GTAO, you should try your hand at robbing stores and banks. Not only will you be able to get the job done with ease, but you won’t have to worry about doing any damage to the property (except for the occasional broken window). Plus, you can always use the money you make to buy better equipment for whatever activity you choose to pursue in GTAO.

Sale Of Drugs

One of the ways to make money in GTAO is to sell drugs. You’ll obviously need the drugs to be able to sell them, but you don’t have to grow or manufacture them yourself. There are several vendors who sell various types of drugs, such as Heroin, Cocaine, and Marijuana, to name just a few. You can even become a dealer and start your own gang, controlling all the drug trade in the city. This is probably the most popular way to make money in GTAO, followed closely by PVP. When it comes to fast cash in GTAO, selling drugs is by far the most viable option.


If you’re looking for a more stealth-based way to make money in GTAO, you could always try becoming a professional thief. As the name implies, you’ll be doing a lot of sneaking around in order to perform your heists. You won’t be able to access all areas of the game (e.g. apartments, garages, etc.) and you’ll have to deal with security systems and guard dogs. Still, as long as you’re good at staying quiet and unseen, this can be an easy way to make quick cash in GTAO. One of the best things about this option is that you don’t need any special equipment to start stealing. Simply download the “Steal Everything” mod from the Rockstar website and you’re good to go. With this mod, you’ll be able to rob anywhere and everywhere in the game with relative ease. Plus, you won’t have to worry about being punished for the crimes you commit in GTAO because the penalty is not being connected to any crimes in real life

Now that you’re equipped with the basics needed to make quick cash in GTAO, the next step is to figure out which one(s) of the above mentioned methods are the best for you. Maybe you’ll choose to play around in PVP and rob banks for fun and profit. Or maybe you’ll stick with the safer and more conventional route of performing heists for organized crime groups. Ultimately, it’s up to you!
