Best Missions to make fast money [courtesy Reddit]:
[Violent Duct ~ 2-3 Minutes ~ 9k Payout ~ Gerald Mission]
- Fastest money making method right now.
- Run on easy for the fastest run.
- Don’t immediately gun at the start, instead sneak in from the left entrance and you can do a sweep in like 20 seconds.
- Recommended 3-4 person party. Host must be level 15+.
- Remember to quick Restart (RT after everyone has liked). Continue after 3-4 rounds so everyone can restock on ammo.
- Stop taking off to the gun store at the beginning of the mission without telling anyone. It’s annoying storming the side and realizing I’m the only one fighting.
- Nice, now keep yo mouth shut about me, ya hear.
[Meth'd up ~ 3-4 Minutes ~ 5k Payout ~ Gerald Mission]
- Recommended 3-4 person party. Host must be level 7+.
- Drive/run straight to the RV and drive straight to the drop off. Driving off road to the objective will make your life a lot easier by avoiding most of the enemies.
[A Titan of a Job ~ 6-9 Minutes ~ 10k Payout ~ Trevor Mission]
- Recommended 4-6 person party. Host must be level 24+.
- Run on easy for the fastest run.
- Have your team attack the hanger from both sides as you make your wait in, move the truck that’s in-front of the aircraft and take off. Enjoy your smooth flight back and don’t crash.

- Cannot solo anymore since the newest patch.
- Still decent for big groups.
[American Cycle ~ 1-2 Minutes ~ 6k Payout ~ Race]

- Need more info on this?
[Base Invaders ~ 10-12 Minutes ~ 25k Payout ~ Ron Mission]
- Recommended to have a full party. Host must be level 27+.
- Call Ron, he asks you to take a plane and go to Fort Zancudo and destroy 3 Lazers and then steal a Cargobob.
- This is a difficult mission and the soliders carry LMGs.
[Boneyard ~ Unknown Minutes? ~ 20k Payout ~ Trevor Mission]
- Cola machine will restore half your health for $1.

How to bank money quickly without going to an ATM:
Pro Tips [courtesy Reddit]:
- Dying costs 5% of your bank (maxing at 5k) so try to avoid getting in fights with random players. This includes dying in any jobs. As of patch 1.02, this no longer affects Deathmatch.
- Passive mode is not invincibility. You’re still vulnerable to being shot from a car and being run over.
- When robbing a store, you can kill the store keeper and take the money out of the register but you will make less.
- Typically the farther the store from Los Santos, the more it pays out. That’s where most of the bigger stores are.
- You can sell cars to any auto-shop once every in-game day (around 48 minutes) which usually goes for 4-9k.
- Luxery Sedans and high end SUVs are the highest paying car when selling cars to the auto-shop.
- You can withdraw/deposit cash safely from your phone.
- All your progress online before the brown sync icon appears will be lost on turning off your console, selectingLeave GTA Online will save your progress.
- The Radio Mirror Park radio station is the best station.
- You can also shut down your console if you lost a great sum of money and haven’t synced yet to restore your previous save.
- When you find a good farming mission, repeat as much as possible. Most good farming missions you cannot choose to join and usually end up joining by random.
- You run faster with no weapons out I think?
- Gerald’s missions seem to pay the highest. Would like to know if anyone has found any higher paying missions.
- I found a crowbar on the death-match mission on the boat and got to keep it afterwards. It’s awesome.
- If you’re not finding good matches on Quick Job try swapping sessions by pressing Find New Session.
- Buying Armor before a session is usually worth it. It’s cheaper then the expensive death penalty.
- Blue moving objective points that aren’t auto GPS tracked will appear under Quick GPS.
- If a player in your passenger sets a GPS route on the map, it will also appear on your map.
- Simeon’s missions are time consuming and not worth the payout compared to Gerald’s missions.
- Use Find New Session to quickly warp back to your garage/apartment.
- If you get a phone call from an AI, your characters lips will move, it’s pretty funny. Your characters mouth also move whenever you talk into the mic.
- When buying an apartment/garage, you will sell your already owned property and get about half the value back to contribute to the purchase.
- Only the host needs to be the required level to start a mission. Anyone can play with anyone regardless of level requirements.
- Press RT to vote for replay mission after everyone has liked even if the option is not shown.
- Mashing jump up hills is faster then running.
- Sports/Super cars must be bought through the ultimate motors website to keep in your garage, sell or modify.
- Don’t quit golf/tennis/shooting range etc. because you are losing. You still get rp (experience) for losing and for being a good sport you will get monetary rewards. Plus you still get points towards your skills. Races can be done solo. They can give 500-1000 rp each time alone which can be a great experience booster. Keep in mind though that it costs 100 each time.
- Players drop 100 every time they die, in addition to any funds they are carrying.
- You have to start a solo/private game from the pause menu.
- Blowing up other players owned vehicles deems you a bad sport, so be careful on your drive-by stick-bomb sprees.
- On the other hand, shooting the all the tires out of a players personal vehicle is totally okay.
- Heritage can influence character height in Character Creation.
- How you set your time spent in character creation can affect how you look, though apparently some of these can be removed when you get an apartment.
- Stores can be re-robbed immediately if you swap sessions.
- Driving a car into an auto-shop gets rid of your wanted level, if you’re not currently spotted by the police.
- Your garage/apartment is also a easy way to hide from police if you enter when you’re not spotted.
- Cops will sometimes chase you if the car you are driving is stolen.
- All clothing stores have the same options for different items.
- To unlock car upgrades you need to run races with that class of car and level up.
- Holding back allows you to split up money that you get from robberies.
- Wearing a mask while wanted and then removing it drops your wanted level by 1 star, more depending on the mask.
- In races, holding Y/Triangle to spawn back to the last checkpoint also repairs your car.
- Pressing down the the d-pad enlarges the mini-map to give a good view of nearby players.
- Putting a car in your garage makes it your personal vehicle, repairs it, and gives it a free tracker.
- Singing while in the shower in your apartment gives you RP. Leave music playing into your mic overnight to exploit this.
- Rolling (X while zooming-in) will dodge most bullets from AI and players.
- Food bought from stores can be used as portable med-kits.
- You can kill players in stores when you kill the attendant.
- Join Social Club and you can get a free Elegy RH8 from Legendary Motorsports if you own a garage/apartment.
- You can sell the Elgy for 9.5k once a day and order a new one for free on Legendary Motorsports.
- Bank is shared between characters.
- In races, accelerating as soon as the green Go appears will give you a massive speed boost.
- Surviving a day with a bounty on your head will give you the bounty.
