GTA 5 Cheats Online Hints and Tips – Cheats for GTA 5
GTA 5 Cheats do not work in Grand Theft Auto Online, so if you want to dominate in multiplayer GTA V, best read up on the hints and tips we’ve compiled below. If you have any tips of your own, feel free to send them in!
$100K Per Hour
You need to create an invite only gaming session. Head to any store and rob it. Punch the clerk in the face, they’ll run off and take all the cash in the register.
Then go to the Start menu and to the Playstation Store / Xbox Live Marketplace – as if you were going to purchase in-game money for real-world cash.
As soon as the Store/Marketplace loads, exit straight away.
You will spawn back in the same store at the same spot except the world will have refreshed. You can now punch the clerk again, rob the cash register and repeat.
Use this to get loads of cash quickly!
$18K Per Minute
At level 45 you will unlock a mission called “Mixed Up with Coke”. The rewards are $18,000 and 3,500 RP. It can take up to 15 minutes to do the first few times, but once you get it down pat with a couple of friends average run times are about 1 minute! The video below shows you exactly what to do (from each of the 4 player participant’s perspectives) in order to get the mission time this low. You’ll need a level 45 (to access the mission) as well as at least one level 19 and two level 9s.
Remember to combine this with the mission looping trick!
StevenWongo of Reddit also made this very useful visual guide for the mission Mixed Up with Coke. Thanks Steven
$2 Million & 400K RP Per Hour Farming
At Rank 75 you’ll unlock a mission called Rooftop Rumble from a guy named Martin Madrazo (he leads a Mexican narcotic gang in the Los Santos area). What you need to do is basically kill 5 people and it’s done, and the video clip below will show you how to complete it in the most efficient way possible. Using the method shown in the vid it’s possible to earn up to $2 million and 400K RP per hour.
You can also do it if you are a lower level and get invited by someone of course. Just use sticky bombs instead of the grenade launcher and kill any survivors with a rifle.
Follow our $18K Per Minute hint to get up to level 75 ASAP.
$5,000 Minimum Drop
If you have more than $5,000 cash on you, you could lose everything above that amount (ie everything but the first $5K) if another player kills and robs you. Even if you don’t have above $5K and you get killed you will still drop $100.
Your GTA Online character has one “action” command available for you to assign and which can be activated by clicking both of the analog sticks in (L3 + R3). To set it, go to the interaction menu. Available actions include, eating snacks, flipping the bird and dancing. Probably most useful is the eat snack one – very handy if you’ve stocked up on candy bars and are in the middle of a gun fight!
No matter if you are winning or losing while doing an activity, you will still earn RP and some cash reward for finishing the game. This goes for shooting, playing golf or tennis, etc. Not only that though, but you’ll also improve your character skills.
Aim Very Steeply
If for some reason you want/need to aim on a very steep angle then try walking backwards. When you are walking front-ways-forwards the angle is limited. Simply turn around 180 and walk backwards and you should have a much greater angle to work with.
All Helicopter and Plane Locations Part 1
If you want to get in the air in GTA Online you’re going to need either a plane or a helicopter. Luckily we found the map below, courtesy of stonedpimpso, that should guide you to the spawn location of all air vehicles in GTA Online. The Frogger, Buzzard and Annihilator are all available!
All Helicopter and Plane Locations Part 2
Check out this second map created by HaIfpint that shows all the aircraft spawn locations in GTA Online. It’s ultra HD too!
American Cycle Bike Race for Easy RP
Doing this race won’t earn you any cash but you will get some very easy RP. Simply do the race by yourself and you can complete it in around 1 min 10 seconds and earn 2,225 RP. Too easy!
With the 5% cash death penalty in GTA Online it is nearly always better to buy armor at the start of each session and keep it maintained. This will save you money in the long run…
A Titan of a Job
This mission requires that the host be at least level 24. You should also have at least 4 (preferably 6) people in your party. You should also select “easy” to make it the quickest run (and then just replay it).
Attack the hangar from both sides and then as soon as you can, move the truck that is in front of the aircraft (blocking it). That done, take off in the aircraft and fly back. Just make sure you’ve got a good pilot.
Completing A Titan of a Job will earn you $10K each time.
Avoid Being Slipstreamed in Races
If you’re being slipstreaming in GTA Online (like as the leader and someone is about to over-take you) then line up the car behind you and brake slightly, accelerating just as you hit the car behind you. This should cause you to gain momentum while at the same time the other car will slow down.
Avoid Losing Money
This might seem a little obvious, but if you get killed when carrying a load of cash and the console has not yet synced to the servers, quickly shut it down to avoid your lost funds being saved…
If you want to damage/slow down another player in their vehicle then try to shoot out their tires. This will not earn you a bad sport tag. Whereas if you blow up another player’s vehicle this will make you a bad sport.
Bad Sport Dunce Hat
Play nice with everyone else unless you want to be forced to wear one of these hats…
Just a quick note – even though you might have noticed there are spaces for six bicycles in your garage in GTA Online you can only store a maximum of three, and in fact we don’t recommend even trying to go above this limit given all the previous issues with players loses vehicles and mods etc… you never know what might happen!
Here’s a helpful hint – if you press down on your digital pad twice then a large version of the minimap will be bought up. This can be useful in lots of situations, however is best used during cop chases. Check where the police are located, anticipate where they’re going and then attempt to evade them accordingly.
Blind Firing Tip
While you are in cover, press the left analog stick upwards and the target reticule will appear. Alternatively if you’re at the “edge” of some cover, press left or right as appropriate.
This will let you see where your first shot lands! Beware though, it will also cause your character’s head to pop out of cover a little bit, so you might get hit.
BMX Color Picker
If you want to choose the color of your new BMX then you need to purchase it during the same browser session as you purchase a car. The BMX color will be the same as the color of the car you choose.
Boneyard Survival Mission Guide
Right after you spawn you should see a building that looks a trailer, and it’s against a wall that has a telephone pole at one end and a clear view of the gate and also the bus at the other.
The only thing is that it isn’t actually flush against the wall and there is a gap between it and the building!
So what you need to do is get in cover behind the building and then enemies should not even be able to hurt you.
Any player on your radar that has a red dot on them is currently wanted. And if you’re able to take them out, then you’ll earn a bounty reward.
You are able to select who you want killed (ie place a bounty) once you reach level 10 in GTA Online. It’s done via Lester.
If for some reason you want to carry 16 people in one vehicle (like maybe everyone playing in your GTA Online instance!?) you can head to www.warstock-cache-and-carry.com using your cell phone and purchase the Airport Bus for $550,000.
If you want a bulldozer in GTA Online then head to the location depicted below!
bulldozer location 350x202There’s also another one that spawn in the construction area south of Blaine County.
Bulldozer Spawn Location
If you’re looking for bulldozers in the city then head to the location indicated on the map below and you should find there’s usually about four bulldozers there waiting for you to take joyriding!
If you press down on your digital pad while you’re inside a garage then the stats of each vehicle in the garage will be shown. You can also check if the vehicle has insurance or not.
Change Clothes On-the-fly
You can change clothes on-the-fly by simply pressing and holding Back (Xbox 360) or Select (PS3), then choosing inventory. There will then be an option to change your clothes there and then.
Change Spawn Point
Press Start and then go to “Online” –> “Options” to change your spawn point location in GTA Online.
Not only will putting on a mask prior to committing a crime help you to remove a Wanted Star later on when the Police come looking for you, but there are other accessories that work too. Try doing it with glasses and hats and you just might get away with the job. This includes (for example) taking off a hat and putting on a pair of glasses instead. Try mixing things up.
Cheap Sticky Bombs
You unlock sticky bombs at level 19 in GTA Online and here’s quick hint and when to buy them. If you wait until the pre-mission lobby they are only $400. If you purchase them otherwise at an Ammu-nation, they can cost you upto $600 (although this cost will decrease as you continue to level up).
Clean Cars Using Fire Truck Watter Cannon
This is a pretty cool feature/piece of detail included by Rockstar in GTAV. Simply grab a fire truck and then aim the water cannon at a dirty car. Next thing you know that car will be showroom clean!
Criminal Records for Easy RP
Setup the race “Criminal Records” on a playlist either by yourself or with a friend and you can net about 6,000 RP each and every race. Given the race takes about 1 minute that means you should be rolling in RP. Just remember that when you do it solo you won’t earn any cash, just RP.
Custom Crew Emblem Tutorial
Ever seen people running around in GTA Online with custom crew emblems and wondered how they got them? Well it’s actually a glitch/workaround using the Social Club website.
What you need to do is follow the tutorial in order to create your own custom crew emblem for GTA Online. You’ll need a few different tools, but it’s totally worth it!
When you die in GTA Online it will cost you 5% of your bank account funds up to a maximum of $5,000. The lesson – don’t die!
Also when you die you will drop all your cash (obviously) plus another $100.
Deposit Cash via Internet
You don’t even need to find an ATM to deposit money. Just go to the Maze Bank website on your cell phone (once you’re in a safe spot of course!).
Deposit your Cash
Don’t forget to deposit your money! This can be an easy thing to forget and is often a hard-learnt lesson!
The best way to completely take out a Buzzard helicopter is to shoot the missile housing with a sniper rifle. One or sometimes two shots and it will explode. You can also try shooting the tail twice while it is flying and it should go down also.
Destroy Unoccupied Cars with No Bad Sport
So if you see someone’s vehicle in GTA Online and they aren’t in it, here’s how you can blow it up and destroy it without getting a bad sport penalty.
First shoot the car’s back tires and then cover the car using the gas from a jerry can (yeah, you’ll need one of those). Try to cover the rear tires the most but get the stuff everywhere.
Then just wait. When the vehicle owner returns and goes to take off, the sparks from the popped tires should light the gas and the entire car should blow up.
The funniest thing is that the driver/owner will be blamed!
If you want to drop an item for someone (like a friend) or just get rid of it, then highlight it in your inventory or quick wheel and then press and hold Y (Xbox 360) or Triangle (PS3).
Die Without Losing Any Money
If you know you’re gonna die a few times (whether it’s for mucking around, griefing someone, someone griefing you, etc) then here’s a way to ensure that you lose absolutely no money when you die, including hospital fees!
First off put all your money into the bank and then change to your second GTA Online character. Withdraw all the money to them in cash and then switch back straight away to your first character.
Your first character will have absolutely no money so you can die all the times you want without losing a dime.
Dodging Air Missiles
The best way to dodge air missiles is to actually fly towards them and then fly underneath them at the last minute. Missiles can turn upwards, left and right very quickly, but are not so good changing direction downwards.
Don’t Pay for Insurance with Police Vehicles
You may not know this, but if you steal a police vehicle you can actually save it into your garage in GTA Online. All you need to do is lose your Wanted Level and then save it and it can become a personal vehicle!
What’s more, if you take it to a Pay and Spray then everything you can do there except chrome paint and getting bulletproof tires is free. Full insurance is also free.
Pretty nice vehicle to have around, and you get a siren!
Drink Pisswasser to Get Drunk
I wouldn’t really call this a tip in that it’s not going to improve your driving abilities, but if you start drinking Pisswasser before a race in GTA Online then your character will get sloshed. Just make sure you hold down the action button when drinking and your character will finish off the bottle (and in fact this works with any consumable – hold down the button until it is full consumed!).
Duplicate Space Docker / Any Vehicle
You can get the Space Docker from the story mode in GTA Online, there are two requirements however. First you need your own garage and secondly you need to be playing with someone who has the Space Docker already.
Oh, this glitch works for any vehicle too – not just the Space Docker.
- Get in the passenger seat of the Space Docker and call Gerald to request a job.
- Accept the mission and you will become the driver of the Space Docker.
- Now drive into your garage, park the Space Docker and leave on foot.
- Now fail the mission (like by blowing yourself up) and then enter freemode.
- Head back into your garage and the Space Docker will be there!
Duplicating Friend’s Vehicles
This will enable you to duplicate a friend’s ride which you can then either sell or keep for yourself!
First off you need to request a job from Gerald while you are in a friend’s car. Use your friends vehicles for the mission and be driving it when the mission ends.
You should then go to free roam and still be in the vehicle. Head to Los Santos Customs.
Try selling the car – if you can, sweet! If not, add a tracker to it and then come back later and try and sell it. Or you can add the tracker, insure it and keep the vehicle!
