How to Make Money Online: GTA 5

GTA Online is an online multiplayer component of the video game, Grand Theft Auto V. In this mode, players can team up with friends or join strangers to engage in various activities and missions to earn money.

If you're aiming to become a successful criminal mastermind in GTA V Online, it's essential to know how to make money quickly.

You'll require substantial funds to sustain your criminal ventures, from acquiring properties to investing in businesses to access new opportunities. Additionally, you'll need to buy vehicles and weapons to stay ahead of the competition. DUH!

GTA Heists

There are several ways to make money quickly in GTA Online. One way is by participating in heists, which offer large sums of money upon completion.

If you're a group of four friends with one owning a high-end apartment, the Pacific Standard Heist is the best way to earn money in GTA Online. However, you must ensure that all of you possess sufficient skills to complete the missions efficiently. The Doomsday Heists are suitable for groups of two or three, but you'll need to purchase a costly facility to initiate them. With proper planning and execution, completing these heists will significantly increase your bank balance. You can consult online guides and enlist the help of like-minded friends to achieve your goals. Additionally, the latest GTA Online Cayo Perico Heist can be accomplished solo if you don't have any partners.

While the profit values may not appear impressive, the advantage of these businesses is that they generate income passively. This means they'll produce goods for you to sell at a profit while you're making money elsewhere. To maximize your profits using these passive methods, purchase a Bunker for GTA Online Gunrunning or a Motorcycle Club. Obtain supplies for your business either by buying or stealing them, and it will transform them into products to sell at a profit when you're ready to do so. If you buy supplies, which is usually the best approach from a money vs. time perspective, the only input you'll need is to sell your accumulated product via a mission when it's ready.

However, be cautious; if you wait too long, your stock will accumulate to the point where the sell mission will require multiple people. As a solo player, the best strategy is to sell frequently.

Payphone Hits

Once you've successfully purchased an Agency and finished three Security Contracts, GTA Online Payphone Hits will become available. You can begin these missions by either answering a payphone that rings at random locations or by calling Franklin and following the map marker to the nearest phone. The assassinations may only pay out $15k initially, but you can earn an additional $70k if you can fulfill the bonus criteria, making this a highly profitable way to make money. Keep in mind that there's a 20-minute cooldown after completing a hit, so you can only do two of these jobs every hour. Use the remaining time to complete other tasks and maximize your earnings.

Other Quick Tips

To begin, participate in the special scavenger hunts available in free mode such as Bounty Targets for Maude, the revolver Treasure Hunt and Los Santos Slasher. Each of these can net you a total of $250,000.

Additionally, you can complete the Movie Props and Signal Jammers collectible missions for an extra $150,000 each. Don't forget to spin the Casino Lucky Wheel daily for the chance to earn some extra cash or chips which can be converted into cash.

Keep an eye out for double and triple money game modes each week, and participate in them alongside missions available to you until you have accumulated $2.2 million. Purchase the Kosatka and work your way through the Cayo Perico heist. Although things may be slow at first, once you've completed your first heist, you can purchase better weapons and vehicles to expedite the process, with the Sparrow helicopter being a top priority for the Kosatka.

From here on out, it's a matter of continuously doing the Cayo Perico heist faster and more efficiently, upgrading your skills, and buying equipment that will allow you to do it even faster, until you're making around $1.5 million an hour. After this, you can enjoy the rest of the game and supplement your income with the other methods mentioned
