Look - I have done quite a few of the missions (55%), asassin missions, export missions etc, but i'm still only on about $230k. I have even been robbing the odd securicor type van that appears in the hope of getting a few extra bucks, but find i'm spending quite a bit too much on weapons. Can someone help me out? I want the 500k acheivement!!! Will it just come round in a mission somewhere? HELP!!!

You'll have much more than $500k when you beat the game. I think I ended up with over $800k. I beat the story missions with about 60% completion, so its possible to earn a whole lot more if you do all of the side missions.

As for weapons, try to find a weapons map so you don't have to buy them.

The trick is not to die too much, the hospital can charge you a max of 10.000 dollars, so if you die ten times, big problem bored.gif

Missions like Three Leaf Clover already give you 250k

I think I had well over a million dollars after I finished the storyline the first time. But I didn't like dying much or getting caught by the cops in the game, so when that happened, a lot of times I restarted to the save before that.

If you want to muck around and do almost certainly fatal things, don't save afterwards. As said before, you lose 10% of your cash for each death, with a cap of $10,000 per bad gunfight.

This guy is having trouble before he finishes. I'm having trouble after. The only side mission I have left is Stevie and I can't find that stupid car in Algonquin.

Roman doesn't offer taxi Missions so I can't do that.

I've run out of idea's so I just run around and try other things. I'll get that achievement someday when I finally decide to restart the game.

Do death reloads and there's a string of side missions later that bring you 500k

If you have beaten Stevie's car missions hang around his garage and steal vehicles by it and instantly put them in there. Also, if you have a Seccuricar put it in Stevie's garage instead of blowing it up (It is better to get no or if one star and get $4,000 if it's in perfect condition other than getting two stars for blowing it up and only getting around $1,100). And if you use cheats you can use car spawn cheats (I only know of the cheat spawned cars you get $9,000 for a Cognoscenti and you don't get a wanted level for taking cars you spawned, also some of the sports cars like the Infernus give you $10,000 but I won't give away a very rare Infernus for that price though and you shouldn't either (seriously)).

It's easy. Just play the game and you will eventually get it, no doubt about it. I don't want to give anything away but even once you've completed 100% there is still decent way to make money, which someone has already mentioned in this thread, one of my fav things in GTA games biggrin.gif

Everytime you die or get busted, reload your game. Try not to buy any weapons, I barely bought any weapons when I played, I just picked them up from enemies that I killed. If you do have to buy weapons, buy them from Little Jacob because its cheaper.

I finished the story with 750k. The only side missions I've done have been a few cars for Stevie. I always bought weapons from Jacob after a mission. I didn't die much and arrested 0 or 1 times. When I'm just rampaging, or driving I don't save, so no need to worry about the hospital, getting arrested or more ammo.

Once you finish the game, you get $250,000 (it's not really a spoiler).

Like it's been said, there are two missions in the storyline that reward you with $250,000 ... Also doing vigilante missions are an easy way to make some cash (look for criminals on foot, they're easy to run over and drop lots of green). And don't save after you die.

But finish the game and you should have the dough.

Yea, basically you just have to have 250k while doing the deal or revenge and you are absolutley fine. Because both deal and revenge gives you 250k so that gives you half a million already. I ended up with 1.08 mil when I was done with the game, super easy really.

I had my own way to get thousands of dollars.There is a narrow road beside Brucie 's house(not his garage).There are always three money trucks:

And all you have to do is throwwing grenades under those cars.After that you have to collect money quickly because you'll get 2 stars wanted.Three money trucks always exist after you take a round.
