How to make good money in GTA Online
I've tried googling this but a lot of the best tips have either been nerfed or no longer work.

What are some of the best ways to make cash in GTA Online right now that can be done both alone but with a team?

I find heists a pain as most people don't work together and we fail 99% of the time.

I don't quite understand the new CEO stuff but it seems to also be a pain with people constantly attacking you and when you respawn doing it again within seconds.

I just want to make good money in GTA Online so I can buy some stuff.

farm vehicles (sandking xl, modded sentinel)

mission - the los santos connection (best with additional ppl)

that's what i've been doing the past couple weeks outside of heists with my friends

sharkcards quickest version but most expensive
modder free cash but you risk a ban


Fastest ingame way is grinding ♥♥♥♥ out of PS final with dc trick(The trick needs a few attemps until you have the right timing for leaving the game) , to be able to play only finals without doing the setups

ceo system is ok but it takes longer than the heists
- you can block your outgoing ports UDP 6672, 61455, 61457, 61456, 61458 in win firewall, if you want to play in a solo public session

as already mentioned

sandking xl blue 18.5k
sandking xl orange 17,5k

so the sandking is the best car for farming lsc vehicle
it spawns on the other side of the lsc in the desert

best mission to farm the cars is "time to get away" because its time is fixed at 12am
and majority of the cars only spawn between 10am- 4pm

other option is making some money through sharing victories in different gamemode and abuse the bet system
you need a partner for this or second acc
you can also unlock some tats, chrome rims and tuning upgrades while making money with bets in capture, dm or race

I just do contact missions on my own. I get between 5000-30,000 per counting how long it takes fo rme to finish them, and difficulty. Can make around 100k per hour on my own doing that when I don't have people to do better activities with.
Fresh Cakes Jun 14, 2016 @ 3:17pm 
can somebody explain the contact missions quickly?
Softspokenman Jun 14, 2016 @ 3:21pm 
get an armored kuruma
jobs rockstar created missions
you will make 10-20k every 5-10 minutes solo
SpacedDuck Jun 14, 2016 @ 3:23pm 
Where can you buy the Armored Kuruma?

Get a full squad that can run the Pac Standard in an hour or less and grind it. . Really helps if you have a friend or two that's not broke and has plenty of money that don't mind giving you up to 70% yourself. I however is not one of those....I've spent more on cars than most have ever made...and i'm broke as s:ZombieHeart::ZombieHeart:t.

I strongly recommend you reconsider heists. When conditions are right for success, payouts are very high. Creating those conditions starts with you.

Almost every mission includes a gunfight, so get comfortable with ground combat. A special carbine can be purchased at rank one, so get one as soon as you have the money. It's good enough for almost anything. Some time at the range will get you used to shooting straight, but also try some low-level contact missions solo or with a friend for actual combat experience. You'll be able to take things at your own pace and get a handle on pve combat.

You should complete flight school training. Flying skills are critical in Prison Break and HLR, and useful in Series A and Pac Standard. If you can get golds in all lessons, you can handle anything. Getting a controller for planes and helicopters might be easier if you find keyboard flying doesn't work for you.

If you don't have one already, go to a clothing shop and purchase a heavy utility vest and save an outift that includes it. The two heavy utility vests cause you to take half damage on heist setups and finales at the cost of sprinting. It seems (to me at least) most people don't know about this bit of kit, but it's the most important thing you can bring on a heist. Too many heist leaders leave heist clothing settings on default, leaving members naked against hostile gunfire. If you can't get the heist leader to change clothing options to player saved outfits due to stubbornness or language barriers, GTFO of the lobby and find a new heist.

Most importantly, talk with the other heist members. If you can do that, things are much easier. More experienced players will be able to talk you through difficult tasks, or at least tell you when to keep your head down. Never be afraid that asking a question will make you look like a noob. If you wipe three times and nobody says a thing in a language you understand, it's time to bail. If you do complete a heist, try adding the other members to your friends list. A player flush with fresh cash is more likely to accept your friend request. Profligacy starts with a long friends list of good heisters.

This might sound like a lot of work. It isn't. Successful heisting begins with a good grasp of basic skills, same as any other game mode. Anyone can do it, provided they're willing to learn.

You have to complete the first heist to unlock the kuruma.

^ this. Time-honored and approved method. Can be done with other vehicles if you're more skilled, but kuruma is your mostly go-to be-all end-all Trojan horse.

That's the best advice in this thread.

Best way to make money solo is by grinding missions on Hard. Take your time completing each one, the longer it takes = more money+rp. Rule of thumb is 15-20 minutes per job and you'll earn between 2-4k RP +15-24k Cash.

OR

If you are a CEO, find yourself a very small public lobby and solo single crate missions. Gather 30 crates consecutively and sell them. 600k every 2-3 hours.

Why 30 specifically? Is it less efficient to get a full 111?
