How to earn money fast in GTA Online

There are a variety of different tasks available in GTA Online that will allow you to earn enough cash to get new outfits, vehicles, weapons, and properties. Here are the ones that will get the best results.

Regardless of how you choose to spend your time in GTA Online, it’s always helpful to earn more money so that you can get yourself some cool new cars, weapons, outfits, and even property. The more cash you have, the bigger and better the mayhem you can cause.

There are a few different ways to earn some dollars around Los Santos, from robbing convenience stores for a few hundred dollars to completing heists with big payoffs.

Here are the fastest ways to make money in GTA Online.

Completing GTA Online Heists

GTA Online Heists can be extremely difficult to complete, especially considering all the time and effort you spend preparing for them. The Cayo Perico Heist required you to invest $2.2 million as the Kosatka Submarine HQ is a requirement for the expansion.

However, these investments are well worth it, since you’ll be working towards some of the biggest payouts in the game. You’re guaranteed some massive returns as the heist will net you a whopping $4 million for your efforts!

If you don’t want to spend a lot of time getting ready for this expensive heist, you can try joining someone else’s heist with some of the prep already completed. You can save a ton of cash by not buying a penthouse.

Similarly, you can earn a few thousand dollars during the Diamond Casino heist prep missions, with a total payout of $2,115,000. You can step it up by getting a Gold ranking for your successful completion of the heist, which will net you a total of $2,585,000.

If you go with other players that already have the money needed, then you might luck out with an 85% cut. You can also make your Cayo Perico heist prep much easier through a simple trick involving the Kostaka submarine.

So, if you’re rich and have some extra cash to spare, then you’ll find GTA Online’s heists to be a lucrative source of money.

VIP Work in GTA Online

If you own your own business in Los Santos, then you’ve got a brand new money-making opportunity in your hands. VIP work has you select a mission type between Hostile Takeover, Headhunter, and Sightseer.

You will then have to complete a series of tasks with the help of your friends so that you can earn between $100,000 and $150,000 per hour, depending on the mission type. Protecting your CEO from threats will get you some hourly cash drops as well.

Luckily, you can get this done with a few friends in your own private lobby so that you don’t have to deal with interference from other GTA Online players.

Racing against the clock in Time Trials

GTA Online Time Trials

While Time Trials don’t have payouts as big as the ones from the previous two options, they’re still a reliable and efficient source of cash. You can take part in these races every week, and completing them before time runs out will net you a lot of cash.

You’ll be able to earn $50,000 from each trial, and is much quicker than completing a heist or VIP work. Plus, it doesn’t require you to make huge investments to participate either.

Rockstar Games tend to include some boosted payouts for Time Trial missions, and you can check their potential rewards in our weekly GTA Online update guides.

GTA Online Motorcycle Club missions

If you were a fan of GTA 4’s The Lost and Damned DLC then you’ll get a kick out of GTA Online’s Motorcycle Club missions, which have you complete missions as part of a biker gang in Los Santos.

You’ll mainly focus on tasks like gun running or drug smuggling, but you’ll have to invest some time, effort, and cash to get these done. Getting a base for your club will set you back about $200,000, but you can make money easily this way.

You can earn between $10-20k per mission depending on the tasks you picked inside the club’s setup room. If you form a private session with your friends, then you’ll be able to net $100,000 an hour per player.

Participate in double money events

Double money events in GTA Online

GTA Online has double money events that you can take part in after every weekly update. Many of these involve defeating other players in battle during modes like Motor Wars or Smuggler Sell Missions. 

This is a fairly straightforward method of earning cash that you can try out every week. While it’s not the most lucrative option, it’s still worth giving a go just so you can show off your skills as a career criminal to other players.

Try your luck at the GTA Online Casino

Aside from completing heists, VIP missions and other dangerous tasks, you can try your luck with the mini-games at the Diamond Casino. There is no shortage of activities for you to try out, ranging from betting on track horse races to taking a spin at the Lucky Wheel.

You’ll find plenty of opportunities to earn chips, and it will require less of a hassle than completing missions and heists. You can take a look at the best ways to earn chips and win big at the Diamond Casino in our guide.

Complete the GTA Online Stunt Races

GTA Online Stunt Races

GTA Online’s new Summer update has added 8 new Stunt Races for you to complete. Rockstar has also confirmed that there is an opportunity to earn $100,000 for taking part in them.

These are available between May 27 and June 2. Once you complete any one of the races, you’ll get your reward if you remember to log in within 72 hours of June 7. Aside from the $100,000, you’ll also receive a free Canis American Legend T-Shirt.

You can check Rockstar’s GTA 5 Social Club to see new events and missions. Be sure to try out each of these methods if you want to get yourself some nifty new gear, outfits, weapons and vehicles!

Rockstar have confirmed an enhanced edition of GTA V for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S, and they’ll probably add more money-making opportunities to the game while they also work on the highly-anticipated GTA 6.

Apex Legends players slam “trash” Ranked system and matchmaking issues

Apex Legends players have called out the game’s “trash” Ranked mode, arguing that the matchmaking is ruining their experience.

Apex Legends players have called out the game’s Ranked matchmaking, claiming it’s placing them in unfair matches against opponents well out of their league.

Apex Legends Season 14 has been well received by the community, with the new character Vantage and other quality of life changes bringing the feel-good factor back to the battle royale.

Unfortunately, it hasn’t all been smooth sailing, and fans have been quick to point out a number of issues in the new season. Wattson’s fence is still broken despite the fix that was supposed to come in Season 14, while the Battle Pass has also come under fire.

Now, although Respawn did make some welcome changes, players have slammed Apex Legends’ Ranked mode for putting together lobbies with a huge skill gap.

Reddit user Azrael462 started a thread criticizing the state of matchmaking in Apex Ranked, arguing the wide range of ranks that can make up a single lobby make it less enjoyable for those in lower brackets.

“If I am in gold I should be fighting gold people, NOT F*****G PREDS OR MASTERS,” the user ranted. “You can actually say it’s a skill issue here because clearly it is, gold is the third rank below masters and fourth below pred, now fix your f*****g system.”

Apex Legends Ranked mode, like most similar modes, is supposed to work on skill-based matchmaking, where only players of a similar rank are put together to make for an even fight. However, players are noticing that this doesn’t seem to be the case.

The OP seemed to point the blame at streamers, as they felt that the current matchmaking system was designed to give full-time players in higher ranks more chance of finding a lobby, rather than being lumped together in every match.

“I’m tired of getting 1k damage and 3 kills only to still lose 30 RP because OF A F*****G PREDATOR STREAMER,” the Redditor continued. “Listen to the community and not the streamers because clearly they don’t know a f*****g thing.”

Other comments seemed to agree that Ranked mode is becoming more punishing, especially if you happen to be in the Bronze, Silver, or Gold tiers. “Never seen a game with worse matchmaking IMO,” argued one reply. “No other game made me feel so fucking helpless like apex did, not even League [of Legends],” said another.

This has been an ongoing frustration among the Apex community, and players will be hoping to see Ranked mode’s matchmaking given some tweaks during Season 14 or in the Season 15 update.

Apex Legends leakers discover Season 15 Legend in game files

Apex Legends leaks have discovered a brand-new character name in the Season 14 game files, which could be the Season 15 Legend.

Published

An Apex Legends leak may have possibly revealed the name of the Season 15 Legend, which some will remember from a previous huge Legend leak.

Apex Legends Season 14 has just got underway, giving players a brand-new Legend to enjoy, which pro player ImperialHal has some strong opinions about.

A new season of Apex doesn’t just mean a new Battle Pass, Collection Event, and buffs and nerfs in the patch notes, it also means that dataminers have a new game version to sift through and find unreleased information.

As always, these leakers have found new information on Apex Legends Season 15, including who the new Legend could be.

In a YouTube video from Apex Legends content creator bobz, it’s highlighted that dataminers have found a Holospray in the Season 14 game files that has Catalyst in the code: “hspray_epic_v22_catalyst_01.”

Back in Apex Legends Season 12, there was a massive leak that revealed a variety of unreleased Legends. At the time, Legends like Newcastle and Vantage were discovered, giving legitimacy to the leak as these Legends are now available.

In this leak there was also a Legend called Catalyst, who can reinforce cover and create structures with “ferro fluid.”

The fact that this name has popped up in the Season 14 game files as well further suggests that Catalyst will be seen in Apex Legends, and it could even be for Season 15.

It’s obviously a long way out until Season 15, and these are just leaks, so take them with a pinch of salt. However, it would make sense to see Catalyst in Season 15 considering the devs have added a Holospray with the character’s name.
