If you’ve played Grand Theft Auto Online (GTAO) then you’ll know how much money can be made through online crimes and heists. You can also make money through legitimate means such as selling your illegal loot, participating in challenges, and committing robberies. In this blog post, we’ll go over the different ways you can make money in GTAO, along with some helpful tips on how to make the most of it.
The Best Way to Make Money in GTAO
As mentioned above, there are several ways you can make money in GTAO. One of the most popular and efficient methods is by selling goods that you steal from other players. In this case, you don’t need to spend a lot of time trying to find buyers as there’s usually someone interested in buying your goods. All you need to do is find a safe place to sell and shop for the best price you can get.
You can also make money through heists wherein you and your team of hackers attempt to break into secure buildings and steal cash and valuables. Naturally, there’s a risk involved in heisting and you could get caught. However, the risk is usually worth it if it means making a large amount of money quickly. In GTAO, heisting isn’t always easy either as there are several security measures in place to stop you. If you want to make some quick money you might want to try out this route instead.
Another popular and efficient way to make money in GTAO is through challenges. These are typically events that require certain performance metrics to be met. For example, one of the challenges in GTAO involves breaking into a building and stealing cash. To complete this challenge, you’ll need to use dynamite to break into the building and steal the money without getting detected. There are several challenges like this one and you can participate and make money in any of them. Just make sure you meet the necessary requirements for the challenge you choose.
Cash and Items You Can Get for Free in GTAO
You don’t need to spend money to make money in GTAO, in fact, you can get most of the items you need for free. All you need to do is:
- Join a public club where you can share your goods (weapons, cars, etc) with other members
- Loot boxes, which are also known as mystery boxes, are littered around the country. These are random containers that you can find anywhere in the game, containing items that can be sold for big profits. The box is marked with a dollar sign to indicate that it contains money.
- Raids are occasions where players with higher level stats can enter small towns and perform specific tasks for the sake of completing an objective. These tasks usually involve helping out the police or performing certain crimes such as bank robberies or drug deals. They can also involve killing people for money or territory. It depends on the task but generally these are the sorts of things you’ll need to do to make money in GTAO.
- You can also buy ‘straw’ from dealers. This is where most of the game’s drugs come from. A typical transaction involves you giving the dealer an item of low value in exchange for drugs. You’ll need to do this in several quick transactions as the dealer probably won’t give you a chance to reflect before chasing you down for more.
Pro-Tip: Don’t Sell Your Goods Below Their Value
If you decide to sell your goods, it’s imperative that you sell them for their real value. The simplest and most efficient way to do this is by using a website such as Gazelle to find a buyer for your items. Using a database of goods and their prices, Gazelle will search for potential buyers and contact them directly. You’ll also get a notification whenever a buyer is interested in what you have. This is a great way to get a good price for your items without having to go through a middleman.
Make Sure You Have Enough Power
To maximize your profits from selling your goods, you need to make sure that you have enough power to complete the tasks that you need to. This means that you should have at least 1000 power to sell items, 1000 police contacts or 1000 missions completed. You should also make sure that your phone has enough power to play the game as well as the GPS in case you get lost. This is important because the game relies heavily on your device’s GPS for gameplay and for you to be able to sell your goods when you’re out of range of a power source.
Use Your Friends If They’re Available
One of the best things about GTAO is how much money you can make with the help of your friends. If you have friends who are also playing the game, you can use them to help you make additional cash. You can ask them to help you find a buyer for certain items you have and to help loot the nearby towns. Not only that, but you can also ask them to help you complete certain tasks as a way of making money. Most notably, you can ask them to help you with heists. Performing heists with friends can be a lot of fun and it makes for a nice change of pace from playing solo where you usually just focus on your own survival.
While it’s great to make money in GTAO, it can also be highly addictive. As you advance in the game, you’ll naturally want to try to make as much money as possible. If you’re looking for some extra cash, or are just wanting to have some fun, GTAO is a great place to be.
