How To Make Money in GTA 5
Your main mission in GTA 5 is to earn enough money for properties, best vehicles, customizations, and repairs. Although GTA 5 doesn’t provide cheat codes for money, there are some easier and faster ways for collecting precious money. In the list below we described the best ways which grant you a full wallet.
Hidden treasure box in the Pacific Ocean
Travel towards the north-west part of the Pacific ocean, where a suitcase with $12 000 is waiting for you. Dive with full lung capacity and look for a crashed plane. At first it will be hard to spot the suitcase, but, it becomes brighter as you approach it. There is a great chance that you will drawn, thus, save the game before you dive.
Money from this treasure box can be collected as many times as you wish, with all characters. The best plan is to visit the location with one character, and set a mark on the map where you want to send the other character. While the first character is collecting the money, the second one will reach the same location. As soon as you grab the cash with the first character, just switch to the other character, and the treasure box will respawn. This way you can make infinite money on both characters.
Rob people near the ATM
People who have just withdrawn cash from ATMs have some money in their wallets, but don’t expect to get a huge amount of money.
Rob Different Places and Stores (up to $1200)
GTA 5 offers 19 shops which can be robbed like Supermarkets, Limited LTD Gasolines, Scoops Liquor Barn and Rob’s Liquor Shops. Usually you can withdraw approximately $600 but some places offers up to $1200 from the cash registers. Some stores are without a clerk which means that wanted level after the robbery will not raise. Places without a clerk or where caps are slow to respond, can be robbed several times. After breaking cash counters, you will hear a crash sound, and money bags will fall down. After collecting the bags, exit a shop and wait a few seconds until you hear a crash sound again. Enter the store again and collect new bags from the ground.
Rob Security Vans ($3000-$7000)
Random event Security Van Heist spawns Security vans on different locations. A blue dot on the map indicates the security van’s location. All Security vans are bulletproof, even the windows. When the Security van is parked, guards are usually outside the van. Vans can also move on their routes, and the best way to stop them is to shoot at least two tires. During the attack on a Security van, Wanted level will raise on two stars.
There are several ways to open the back doors of a security van. The easiest way is to place a bomb on the back doors, but if you don’t have it, just drive the car into the water, and the doors will open.
Buy a Property
In Grand Theft Auto V you can purchase different properties (business) which grant you a permanent source of income. With side missions you can earn additional cash from $800 to $250000, depending on the business that you have started.
Although street and sea races have entry fees, reward for winning the race is up to $7000.
