GTA Online; Database of Tips and Tricks

heists.jpg

As of 10/10/13 this topic was stickied! Congratulations to everybody who've helped!

 

 

This thread is all about informing everybody on these forums the best way to go about things, some things that are helpful to know and everything in between or helpful in general. I put about 100 hours into single player getting %100 completion before online was released and now here I am. I'm a die hard GTA fan since GTA 3 and I'm always trying to find the best ways to go about things, making money or finding a helicopter so instead I decided to be the one to bring a more upbeat post relating to GTA Online by compiling all of the Tips and Tricks I've learned, come across, or that were left in the comments on this thread itself. Thanks to everybody who contributed and Thanks to my crew members. I'm also always looking for friendly people to play with on Xbox Live. If you're interested send me a message or join my crew from my signature.

 

Reading through there may be some information you know or have heard before but I highly suggest at least skimming through all of it. There's a lot of useful information in this thread. Play smarter not harder and thanks to everybody who has contributed! I've left some things in quotes of the information I've gathered from comments.

1) Getting a good starting car after the "tutorial"

This one includes a spoiler right after the first couple missions.

Spoiler
then grab any car from the road (as long as it isn't too high end like the infernus, coquette etc, I got a Schyster Fusilade) and it'll be free to make yours during this mission. Go through every option category and any upgrades and paint will also be available for free.

 

2) Making $9,500 every 48 minutes.

Running around Los Santos, waiting to get your next job or in between robbing convenient stores you will occasionally be able to sell a car in the Los Santos Customs shop. You can do this once every 24 in game hours, which converts to 48 minutes of real life time, if anybody even keeps track of that anymore. What you do is steal any car and drive it into a Customs shop. There will be an option to sell it (you can also sell your own). Obviously the less damaged, the more cash you'll get. Also, if you have a free garage slot or don't mind driving around, for example a felon or baller, you will very frequently see those types of cars making stealing and selling them that much easier. Below is a few cars I remember the prices for to give you an Idea and selling cars with mods, or anything altered on them will fetch higher prices giving you a slight return on the money invested into it.

 

- Felon GT: $9,500

- Gallivanteer baller: $9,000

- Lampadati felon: $9,000

- Ubermacht Oracle: $8,000

- Ocelot F620: $8,000

- Escalade (not sure of in game name) $7,000

 

ALSO. Occasionally playing you'll get a text from

Spoiler
with a couple cars listed in it. I highly suggest finding one of those cars. The mission will only activate when you get inside of one. This mission will also reward you with much more money than LS Customs would but is much pickier. Try your hardest to keep the car in perfect condition, It will be worth your time. I also suggest trying to find the nicer car in the text as it may be a better payout (unconfirmed) 

 

3) Mmmm. Buying snacks.

This one is very straight forward. If you're low on health, go to a store you can walk in to (I usually use ammunations) and there will more than likely be a vending machine. For $1 it heals you completely from half health. You must have it in cash though or you'll get an Insufficient funds message. There's no where to swipe your card on hookers or a soda machine. You can also buy snacks to carry around on you from gas stations to heal yourself in between your random acts of violence. To do this just open your inventory and scroll down and by your cigarettes you'll see your junk food to magically heal yourself with.

 

Note: Eating a snack while in cover or zooming in will instantly restore the health without the animation. You can also not eat snacks in vehicles, even as a passenger. Wouldn't want a dirty car now would we?

 

4) Joining a crew 

This is highly advised and you can even join more than one crew earning RP (XP) bonuses to rank up much faster. Being in a crew gives you a %10 bonus and you can have people to play with. Not trying to advertise but if you need a crew and want to join mine there's a link in my signature to my crew page :)

 

5) Earning RP/XP playing Solo

Some people prefer to play alone and here will be some ways of earning RP (xp) while doing so. First off replaying an easier job over and over seems to be one of the most effective. As of the most recent patches you aren't able to replay the same job over and over, an alternative to this would be to keep calling and requesting jobs until you either get an easier one or play through all of them still resulting in good money and XP. The higher you level, the better missions, the better the payouts. This method, using the faster/easier missions is the most effective way of leveling and earning money while doing section 2) in between missions.

 

Alternate Methods:

-Golfing (Example Game: 9 Holes in 10 minutes for 2380 RP

-Races in general (less time/laps quicker gains)

-Survivals

-Parachuting

 

Through out your journeys through Los Santos there are other random activities that reward you with RP/XP. Some of them include Stunt Jumps, Losing the cops (more stars the bigger the reward), killing cops and killing gang members.

 

6) Making a car yours. For free. / The Elegy RH8

Once you buy your first apartment (not sure if garages work the same way, I'm assuming they do) you can store cars in its garage. Having one car out at a time and the other(s) in storage. You're able to call your mechanic and have him deliver one of your vehicles if you've strayed to far but most importantly you can put any car you find (not including the expensive/buy only cars) into your garage. When you do it automatically gets the GPS tracker making it yours for good. You can only own as many cars that will fit in your garage. If it's full you can chose to replace one. I suggest driving many vehicles replacing your old ones until you find the car you really like before spending money upgrading them.

 

The Elegy. Once you have a garage to store your cars go to the Legendary Motorsports website through your phone and buy the free Elegy RH8. If it isn't free or available then why haven't you signed up for Rockstars Social Club? Go do it now and get your free sports car.

 

7) Quickly leveling your skills online.

These are not confirmed (Except driving)
The single players ways are obviously still going to work, these listed here will be the online only ways.

Stamina - Bicycle Races

Shooting - Gun Ranges, playing Survivals are extremely good in my opinion.

Strength - Arm wrestling

Stealth - Sneaking while on jobs

Flying - Flying races more than likely do since Land races do.

Driving - Land Races

Lung Capacity - Holding your breath underwater 

 

A hidden online stat that doesn't show yourself until you level is max health.

Unsure of the levels specifically but every so often you will gain bonuses to max health.

 

8) Bounties

Players can set bounties on other players after meeting and calling 

Spoiler
. Not all bounties are placed by actual players though. At level 15, give or take. I received a $5,000 bounty on my head while playing a friends only game with one person by an NPC. A comment below suggests it's a random car theft, it could possibly be random acts of violence towards NPCs in general. If you survive 24 hours with a bounty on you, you will pocket the entire bounty yourself. Stay alive and make that money.

 

While playing in games with other players you can also set bounties on people in the game to exact revenge. If you come across a player with a bounty and want to claim the money as your own then you can kill them and take it. If your level meets the requirements you can call Lamar and send a mugger after them or use some of Merryweathers abilities to give you an edge.

 

 

9) Saving and Earning money

Here will be some information that may not be completely obvious to all or good information to read before playing. First off see 1) for how to get a nice car from the beginning.

Don't forget to deposit your money! Typically I deposit it all through my phone and withdraw $500 to keep some pocket change just in case I need an emergency snack or hooker.

 

A) Saving Money

-Committing suicide for $500 instead of dying and losing $2,000.

-Claiming/Calling insurance may be cheaper than repairing your car, or alternatively you can do a job or mission and when you finish, or the mission ends and your mint condition car will be waiting for you.

-Getting a new car for free by taking it to your garage/appt

-Picking up a gun that you have unlocked to purchase at ammunation then going and buying ammo will unlock that gun for you instead of purchasing it.

 

B) Earning Money

By far the best way to earn money and RP is to grind on jobs

These values may have changed during the most recent patch. Along with the most recent patch replaying missions is now completely unavailable, there are ways to get round this but I'm not going to list them here.

 

Here's a list of jobs Payouts - Lvl requirements - RP reward (Hard)

Alternative ways to earn money

-Robbing armored trucks can also be pretty profitable (Only available after reaching the level for sticky bombs)

-Robbing Stores. You can go to the basket icon on the map and hold up stores by aiming your gun at the clerk. While in, in-game chat you can yell, shoot around them or both to make them put the money in the bad faster. Watch the intimidation bar at the bottom right. As you're leaving the store be sure to keep your gun aimed at them or they may pull a gun and start unloading into your back. Some tips for making this smoother are to pull up with a mask on, in a stolen car. Leaving the store head off in the stolen car to your actual car, parked conveniently out of sight. When the cops don't see you, remove the mask to lose 1 star. Switch cars to yours to lose another star. Easy peasy.

-Solo Players see 5) as most of those give cash rewards

-Simply playing through any of the blue icons rewards you with cash

one of the most fun ones in my opinion is the survival missions after level 15

which is also a good way to level your shooting up 

-I have read a comment saying you can rob fleeca banks. This is unconfirmed but if you're a higher level, give it a try or let me know.

-Don't forget about bounties. See 7)

 

10) Vehicle Locations

Here I will start compiling a list of vehicle locations or tips to find them easier.
As like many other grand theft auto games, driving nicer cars, motorcycles etc increases the frequency you'll see that type of vehicle. Driving a infernus around you're more likely going to see other nice cars so to start if you want a specific type of car driving a similar one will more than likely help.

 

-Military Base - Jets, jeeps, titans, cargobobs, tanks

-Helicopters - By the Marina you can buy in single player (just north of the airport) there are helipads which spawn mavericks. You can also do a stunt jump by the gate of the airport to get inside of it and steal a helicopter from there. You do not get stars for entering the airport. Checking the tops of hospitals, tall buildings and Trevors airfield are also likely places for them to spawn.

-Airports - Airplanes, Helicopters, air tugs, fork lifts,

-Farms - Tractors, Fork lifts, utility vehicles

-Golf Club - Golf carts, usually higher end cars

-Police Station - Police Cars

-Fire Station - Fire trucks
-Hospital - Ambulances, Delumadol vans and Helicopters can spawn on the roof.

-Mine/Quarry - The HUGE dump trucks, semis, trucks, cement mixers, bull dozer, flat beds

-Construction site - Semis, dump trucks, bull dozer, flat beds

-Shipping Yard - Utility Vehicles, trucks, semis, flat beds

-Docks - Boats, Jet Skiis, Dingys, Helicopters nearby

-Beach - Bicycles, Life Guard vehicles,

-Desert - Increases your odds dramatically of finding trucks, dune buggies, bf injections, dirt bikes and four wheelers

-Vinewood Hills - Increases your odds dramatically of finding higher end cars, sports cars and coupes

-Grove Street and Similar areas - Increases your odds of finding sedans, muscle cars and sports classics

 

11) Preventing Character Loss

-Do not load directly into online, load single player, go to the online tab under the pause menu and start online from there.

-Do not 'Continue without saving' or create a temporary character. Ever.

-If it says you failed to connect to cloud servers, do NOT retry. Cancel and repeat the above step

-When exiting online, do not dashboard, shut down your console, etc. Press start, go to the online tab and Leave Online. Wait until single player starts to load before quitting the game so your character saves properly to the cloud servers and isn't interrupted.

-If your character does disappear or is 'deleted' do not panic, immediately load single player back up and follow these steps from top to bottom. Try a few times if it doesn't work on the first one. Your character should reappear fully intact. Do NOT make a new character right away and if you chose to make a new one, put in the other save slot as your character may still return.

 

12) Game Mode Tips and Tricks

General tips and tricks geared towards specific game modes and types

 

Death match/Team Death Match

-Knowing and learning the maps can be game changing. Where the enemies come from, where they can go is a huge advantage. 

-Up and down. Don't forget the use of ladders, climbing objects or getting lower than everybody else. Having a different angle on the battlefield can really catch enemies off guard. 

-Use the appropiate guns. If you're close quarters, searching a building etc, pull out your shot gun or a sub machine gun. Longer distances, maybe an assault rifle would be better off. Having a more well suited weapon could be the difference between life and death.

-Just because it's a death match doesn't mean you can't steal cars. Don't always go straight on. Maybe a sneaky approach will work better. Try circling around behind your oppenants and suprising them.

 

Survival

-Keep the name in mind. It's about living. You can't win, if you don't live.

-Find a good spot with your group and give each person their own area to look after. 

-Communication will help tremendously. 

-In between round those armor and rocket launchers may be extremely tempting but if you don't get back in time you could be throwing the whole game away.

-Keep the money at the end in mind. It's a good motivator stay alive.

-If you meet the level requirements you can always call in Merryweather for support

 

Races

-Most races players will be extremely aggressive, why not let them take each other out and try slip streaming ahead.

-Slip streaming can be game changing. Always be aware of you can use to launch yourself ahead. 

-Just because you have the lead doesn't mean it's over. Try your best to avoid letting people use you to slip stream.

-If they manage to slip stream on you, stay in front of them. Them hitting you in the back can boost you ahead and slow them down. Just stay calm and don't wreck.

 

 

Miscellaneous Tips:

-The last two stores you rob won't be available for a short period of time

-Shooting registers in clothing stores may not give you a wanted level at all

-You can call people who have given you jobs to request a new one, or redo one

-Climbing walls, ladders, etc is sped up for GTA: Online
-Using the tunnels are very effective for losing cops
-Gaining XP for driving, flying etc is much slower than single player
-Every clothing shop sells the same items regardless which store

-The prison is now on the map with a good amount of detail. Possibly hinting at there will be missions involved with it or heists when they're released. Looking forward to finding out!

-The websites that sell vehicles have a vastly improved inventory! Go check it out.

-Dying costs %5 of your max cash, capping at $5,000

-As of patch 1.02, this no longer affects Deathmatch.
-Passive mode is not invincibility. You're still vulnerable to being shot from a car and being run over.
-When robbing a store, you can kill the store keeper and take the money out of the register but you will make less.
-Typically the farther the store from Los Santos, the more it pays out. That's where most of the bigger stores are.
-You can sell cars to any auto-shop once every in-game day (around 48 minutes) which usually goes for 4-9k.
-Luxery Sedans and high end SUVs are the highest paying car when selling cars to the auto-shop.
-You can withdraw/deposit cash safely from your phone.
-All your progress online before the brown sync icon appears will be lost on turning off your console, selecting Leave GTA Online will save your progress.
-You can also shut down your console if you lost a great sum of money and haven't synced yet to restore your previous save.
-When you find a good farming mission, repeat as much as possible. Most good farming missions you cannot choose to join and usually end up joining by random.
-Gerald's missions seem to pay the highest. Would like to know if anyone has found any higher paying missions.
-If you're not finding good matches on Quick Job try swapping sessions by pressing Find New Session.
-Buying Armor before a session is usually worth it. It's cheaper then the expensive death penalty.
-Blue moving objective points that aren't auto GPS tracked will appear under Quick GPS.
-If a player in your passenger sets a GPS route on the map, it will also appear on your map.
-Simeon's missions are time consuming and not worth the payout compared to Gerald's missions.
-Use Find New Session to quickly warp back to your garage/apartment.
-If you get a phone call from an AI, your characters lips will move. Your characters mouth also move whenever you talk into the mic while in, in-game chat
-When buying an apartment/garage, you will sell your already owned property and get about half the value back to contribute to the purchase.
-Only the host needs to be the required level to start a mission. Anyone can play with anyone regardless of level requirements.
-Mashing jump up hills is faster then running.
-Sports/Super cars must be bought through the ultimate motors website to keep in your garage, sell or modify.
-Don't quit golf/tennis/shooting range etc. because you are losing. You still get rp (experience) for losing and for being a good sport you will get monetary rewards. Plus you still get points towards your skills. Races can be done solo. They can give 500-1000 rp each time alone which can be a great experience booster. Keep in mind though that it costs 100 each time.
-Players drop 100 every time they die, in addition to any funds they are carrying.
-You have to start a solo/private game from the pause menu.
-Blowing up other players owned vehicles deems you a bad sport, so be careful on your drive-by stick-bomb sprees.
-On the other hand, shooting the all the tires out of a players personal vehicle is totally okay.
-Heritage can influence character height in Character Creation.
-How you set your time spent in character creation can affect how you look, though apparently some of these can be removed when you get an apartment.
-Stores can be re-robbed immediately if you swap sessions.
-Driving a car into an auto-shop gets rid of your wanted level, if you're not currently spotted by the police.
-Your garage/apartment is also a easy way to hide from police if you enter when you're not spotted.
-Cops will sometimes chase you if the car you are driving is stolen.
-All clothing stores have the same options for different items.
-To unlock car upgrades you need to run races with that class of car and level up.
-Holding back allows you to split up money that you get from robberies.
-Wearing a mask while wanted and then removing it drops your wanted level by 1 star, more depending on the mask.
-In races, holding Y/Triangle to spawn back to the last checkpoint also repairs your car.
-Pressing down the the d-pad enlarges the mini-map to give a good view of nearby players.
-Putting a car in your garage makes it your personal vehicle, repairs it, and gives it a free tracker.
-Singing while in the shower in your apartment gives you RP. Leave music playing into your mic overnight to exploit this.
-Rolling (X while zooming-in) will dodge most bullets from AI and players.
-Food bought from stores can be used as portable med-kits.
-You can kill players in stores when you kill the attendant.

When robbing stores be sure to have a mask. when you exit the store and lose sight lines from the cops, go into your inventory and take off the mask, it will lose one star. Also, if you rob stores one after the other you will obtain more and more stars as you go to exit the building.

 

Smoking reduces your health.

 

Survival missions give you money and RP even if you fail.

 

You can complete races and parachuting missions by yourself and receive RP for doing so.

 

You have to have a home before you can take a stripper home with you.

 

Hookers automatically run from you upon exiting the vehicle.

 

If you run into A Ninja Poop on xbox live be sure to befriend him or stay out of his way.

 

This is what he does to player's vehicles when they f*ck with him...

There's a separate option when buying clothes, not all can have it though. Some jackets and tv shirts from what I've seen.

Another tip: 

- It may be better to just claim insurance for the car rather than repariing. At least for mine, I pay 125$ when I call insurance while it sometimes costs $500+ to repair.

- Guns(and ammos) you pick up in Deathmatches get saved after the game.

- Please deposit your cash to avoid dropping them upon death.

  • Access internet from your phone - Money&Services - Bank - Deposit. 
  • Alternately, if you want to roleplay, you can go to an ATM.

- When robbing a store and you have a game mic, you can yell(I think just talking also works) at the cashier to intimidate him/her faster.

Also I think you should also a few extra and useful features that are available online that isn't in singleplayer:

  • Double tapping "d-pad down" gives a larger mini-map
  • There are more options when holding Select

I'm thinking of a few more.

If you have to much heat on you and u know your about to die,
Select commit suicide.
That way instead of losing $2000 on medical bills, committing suicide is only $500.

Shops sell snacks which you can eat from your inventory (hold select) to recover health, this is great for when you are on a mission or if you are not close to vending machine.

 

Players will start randomly getting 7k bounties when stealing a peds car at around rank 20 (bountied player is red dot on map), also if the played with the bounty manages to survive for a full day ingame he is given the bounty.

 

Later on you get access to gang hideouts which may reward you with weapons far above your lvl (lose them if you quit game or go back to sp), these show up as a red circle when you get close to them.

 

Racing Solo or against other people is a QUICK way of getting up driving skill, however raising stamina trough races is not very effective.

 

 

 

 

If anyone knows tips for raising the other various stats, please share.. im kinda gueesing arm wrestling is good for str, and shooting range is good for shooting but havnt tested yet.

I added a section about leveling skills online, most are speculation but probably true and I also put in a section about bounties. Thank you for the support.

To be clear, bike races IS a valid way of getting stamina up, it just goes a hell of alot slower then driving. (driving only takes a couple of hours)
