The online multi-player mode in Grand Theft Auto Online is one of the best experiences in gaming history and an unprecedented amount of fun. Being able to work together with other players to accomplish tasks, gain money, and level up is incredibly rewarding and opens up a whole new world of gameplay. However, as great as the online mode is, it can still be difficult to make a profit in.
GTA Online: The Basics
If you’re new to GTA Online, then it may be difficult to know where to start. Luckily, we’ve got you covered on this front. Below, we’re going to run down all the basics you need to know about making money in GTA Online. Hopefully, this will help you get started and allow you to build up a healthy bank account in no time!
The Importance Of Teamwork
One of the most crucial things you need to do in GTA Online is to work as a team. Sure, you might be able to pull off heists alone thanks to some clever logic and planning, but you’re going to quickly find that it’s much easier (and usually, much more fun) to work with others. The more people you have helping you, the better. There are a number of roles you can play in GTA Online to earn money, including:
- Heist roles
- Bank Jobs
- Delivery Jobs
- Shining Star
- Police Aides
- Drug Dealer
- Pirate and Smuggler
To start, you’re going to want to create a team with three other players and then choose a role. Don’t worry, creating a team isn’t difficult; all you need to do is log into your PSN account and click the create a team button. From there, you can pick which roles you want to fill and then add other players (if you have their email addresses) to the team. Once you’ve got your team formed, it’s time to start earning!
GTA Online Heists
One of the most popular ways to make money in GTA Online is via the Heists mode. This mode was inspired by the TV show Grand Theft Auto, in which the main characters commit robberies and heists to earn money. In Heists, you and your team of three rob various locations and steal valuable prizes. As you progress through the game, you’ll be unlocking more elaborate heists with larger teams that can be accomplished using logic problems and Rube Goldberg-like contraptions. For example, one of the larger heists involves taking down four hotels in a row using only helicopter lifts and ski masks. It’s a lot of fun to play and the rewards can be extremely lucrative. You could potentially make a lot of money in Heists and even be able to afford luxurious items like Lamborghinis and Ferraris. However, keep in mind that these cars won’t be on your street due to the game’s user-generated traffic system. Instead, you’ll have to sneak around and hide them from the cops. Ultimately, Heists is a lot of fun and it’s one of the easier ways to make money in GTA Online.
Another popular way to make money in GTA Online is via the Bank Jobs mode. In this mode, you control a courier who makes regular deliveries to various banks. Each delivery will net you a small amount of cash, which you can then bank. As you progress through the game, you’ll be able to choose which banks you want to work for and then set your own hours and make as much or as little money as you want. The catch is that your health will gradually be depleted by all the running around and you’ll have to be ready to rest for a couple of minutes after each delivery.
This mode can work for shorter or longer periods of time depending on how fast you want to advance and how much health you’re willing to lose. It’s another easy way to make money in GTA Online and it’s one of the more preferred ways to make quick cash. You can also play for free in Bank Jobs without any health concerns. The choice is yours!
Finally, we have the Delivery Jobs mode, which offers up the opportunity to make some quick cash via driving a truck and delivering goods. Similar to the Bank Jobs mode, the difference is that you’re working for particular vendors who have specific goods they need to deliver and you get paid per delivery. Most of the time, you’ll be making regular deliveries to various construction sites where you’ll unload materials and then get paid per piece. Another popular option in this mode is to work for a dog food company who needs you to drive around and pick up their dry food and deliver it to customers. While these delivery jobs don’t offer up a lot of money, the ability to make quick cash without any previous experience is appealing.
One of the newest modes to hit GTA Online is called Shining Star and it’s an exciting new take on the escort service job from previous games. In this mode, you play as a glamorous escort who gets paid in cash to bring customers to lavish parties in exchange for luxury items. At these parties, which can either be indoors or out, customers will engage in high-stakes gambling with the help of dangerous and cunning criminals. In order to protect yourself and your customers from these criminals, you’ll need to rely on your wits and your combat skills to stay alive. As an escort, you’ll also get the opportunity to choose which parties you want to work for (the selection is diverse) and then get out of town as soon as possible once you’ve made the delivery. This mode is still in its early stages of development and isn’t available to the public yet, but it’s sure to become a fan favorite once it’s released.
As you can see, there are several different ways to make money in GTA Online. While some of these methods can be a little more tricky to navigate than others, the majority of them can be extremely lucrative. Working as a team is always the key to success in any endeavor, and with the right mix of roles and responsibilities, you’re sure to be able to form a functional team and put in the work to build up a healthy bank account. Once you’ve got your finances in order, you can take a vacation with your friends and family or continue playing and see where the game takes you. Whatever you choose, good luck out there.
