As you probably already know, it’s difficult, if not almost impossible to make real world money in Grand Theft Auto 5. However, you can make virtual money in the game. But sometimes, it seems like it’s almost as difficult to make money with the virtual currency as it is to make money in real life. The good news is that there are a couple of easy ways that you can start making a good amount of money in GTA V, but you’ll still have to put in the work.
If you follow along below, we’ll show you how you can start making the dollars bills in Grand Theft Auto V! Here they are.
Save, save, and save!
The first way that you can “make” money in GTA V is simply by saving! Yes, this is the number one way that you can keep money in your pocket. There’s a lot of stupid stuff in GTA V that you can spend your money on that add no value to your in-game experience, and those stupid little things seem to piddle away at your funds. If you say no to those items, you’ll find that you can keep quite a bit of money in your virtual bank account in order to save up for the bigger items.
Another way that you can make some quick cash in GTA V is by robbing stores throughout Los Santos. This can net you between $50 and $1000. It’s not very much, but it can add up over time, and pretty quickly depending on the amount of stores you can rob in a period of time. However, it can get quite risky, as you can quickly get the police on your tail. And, if you’re not careful, depending on the amount of stars you get, you could very easily die and lose a lot of those funds in your carry-on account.
Another way to earn money is to simply stay alive! When you die, you lose around $500 as well as some ammo on your person. And, you can’t keep from losing money. If you keep your money in your bank and none on your person, the game will deduct $500 from even your bank account for “hospital bills.” Depending on how much you die, that can add up to be a substantial amount of money, unfortunately. If you stay alive, you can save that money, and potentially keep thousands of dollars at your disposal.
Heist Armored Trucks
You might also want to consider heisting some of the armored trucks that drive around the city of Los Santos. These trucks can have $5,000 or more in them, so if you can pull off a heist like this successfully, you could easily earn $20,000 or more by simply running around stealing from these armored trucks. It’s a quick way to make money, but it can also be time consuming at times going around looking for these trucks.
Invest In Properties
One of the best and “fair” ways to make money in GTA V is by purchasing properties. Properties can make you money on a weekly basis, and if you can really upgrade something, such as a weed farm, you can sell a lot of product for hundreds of thousands of dollars at a time. It does take a lot of time to do things like this, but it’s probably the best method, as there’s not a whole lot of other ways to get increments of a hundred thousand dollars or more. If you take that money and start investing in other properties, you can even start doubling those funds. Of course, that does take more time, but the amount of cash you can earn is insane.
The best and easiest way to earn money in GTA V is to use cheat codes. Unfortunately, there aren’t any codes that will magically put a few thousand dollars in your carry-on or bank account; however, there are cheat codes that will allow you to spawn cars, lower wanted levels, and even become invincible. That said, you may not be able to use a cheat code for receiving cash directly, but by taking advantage of the other cheat codes in the game, you could easily come up with some easy money.
As you can see, it’s a little difficult to make money in GTA V, especially when you’re first starting out and cannot afford anything. But, once you can get the ball rolling in properties, you’ll be swimming in cash in no time.
