Yeah which is exactly why I made this topic. I feel like there's a mission that gives a higher payout that we may not know about, but from what everyone is saying, it's the only one that gives the highest RP.


Btw thanks for the suggestions everyone, I'll be trying a lot of these missions out.

You should absolutely try other missions just don't do it for the money.

 

I like Cleaning The Cat House alot, but it's got a really sh!ty payout for the time and ammo spent killing everybody.

 

Most other missions just aren't worth it for the money, time, effort,  little RP, unless you do them for your own personal enjoyment not trying to efficiently get ahead in the game.

Try grinding a x16 crystal clear out 3 with a buzzard...@ 40000+ rp $160000 /hr solo.

This interests me...can you say it in English please?
Make a playlist that has cco3 16 times. Only cost you $200 for the buzzard, make sure to bail out of the buzzard, at the end, to destroy it each time to save lots of drive time.

Awesome thanks I'll try that today. But what does bailing out of the chopper do exactly?

Yes but i'm not telling because if i do then the kiddies will know which missions to go too when RR Payout gets nerfed and at least i know they are safe at least till Domass decides to make a video about it...

 

I will give you the name of one Mission....

 

Chopper Tail it pays 18K and takes same amount of time if not less than RR...but all the other missions are my and my friends/crew members secrets.

 

But why not just find out for yourself? So and play random missions to find out which one pay the best and while you are playing those random missions you won't even realize how much money you are actually making.

 

If you play random misisons as they come up on the voting screen within 45 minutes you''ll have 100K is not a little more and you'll have had fun doing it since it won't feel like a job.

Landing Gear! I have been grinding that for a month. Only pays ~$17000 and ~2400rp on hard and you need at least 4 people to start it and it takes a really long time because the planes are slow as faggios but I love it and its fun which is all I care about because its a video game.

FYI: CCO = Crystal Clear Out III

For RP, I like going back and forth between Crystal Clear Out III and Cleaning The Cat House (with a Buzzard). On Hard/Free Aim (the latter giving 25% extra RP), CCO gets you $10,500 and about 2,000 RP for about 2 and a half minutes of work, and Cathouse gets you a little over 3000 RP IIRC and a rather mediocre payout of around $3,000 for about three minutes of flying.

The nice thing about this combo is that CCO always spawns you in the desert near Sandy Shores Airfield, so you'll be right near the Buzzard's spawn point. You'll also be down the road from the "cat house" when you have finished CCO.

Cleaning The Cat House leaves you at your last location, so you would normally have to drive all the way from Martin's house to Sandy Shores if you just replay Cathouse over and over again, hence the addition of Crystal Clear Out.

If you go to the farthest group and kill them first then kill the rest but make sure when you kill the last enemy that your buzzard is flying close to the ground, your buzzard will be where you left it when you launch it again.

You can basically put it ten feet from the start point.

Those are awesome links to all the jobs - thanks for that. 

 

My 'daily grind' is Defender. I start it off by doing the Parachuting mission Hydro or Air Power as the landing points put you down near Martin's lockup (which is your first checkpoint on Defender) - that gives me a set of armor as well as some bonus cash & RP. Then, start Defender, grab the chopper, fly to LSI, shoot down the laughably-easy 4 Helis and 2 ground targets, then land at Sandy Shores airfield.

 

An unbelievably easy way to earn $17K and 3600 RP.  Done this way it's faster than RR, as you don't have the chance for the last guy to get away and lead you all on a merry chase around the entire island - and for every mile you have to chase him, that's a mile you have to drive back to Martins. Defender ends as soon as the escort lands. 

 

Missions with $17K+ payouts that are also easy to solo: Defender, On Maneuvers, Base Invaders, Chopper Tail

 

Lower paying missions that become goldmines with a Buzzard: Trash Talk, Mixed up w/Coke, Crystal Clear Out III, Bust Out.

 

I've left Judging the Jury out, as R* has done something to that mission - it's a total nightmare. As near as I can tell, they no longer allow the Buzzard to lock-on to the targets, or at the very least it's a lot harder to get the lock, as the last couple of times I've tried it my chopper is barely in the air by the time I finish, and it takes three times as long as it used to.

Defender is really a better payout since you pay zero for ammo. Cleaning the Cathouse is probably the easiest if your just looking for RP, use a helicopter. One you own would be cheapest, otherwise have Lester locate one, it will be right at Sandy Shores. Satellite Communications is a great mission, and can solo it easy with a little practice. Chopper tail and Extradition are probably the two easiest to solo for good RP and cash.

Grind as much as you can before Rockstar finds out and wreck the sh*t out of them again.

My most favorite one the last few months has been Chopper Tail.

If you have a buzzard crystal clear out 3 takes a few mins and gives around 2500 RP on hard I believe and 10500 each time for cash

THIS x999

 

I am f*cking tired of the "I love you, in an appropiate way of course, if I didn't, you would be dead of course" and the "Good doggie, here's your bone". Trying to act all badass and sh*t when we all know how pussy he was in SP.

Yeah, I'm forever reminding Martin that if this wasn't a cutscene, I'd long ago shot him in his condescending face.

Some of the stuff Trevor says makes me literally laugh out loud. I'd never done many of his missions in the past but am quite a lot now. Some of my favorite quotes are these.

"Ronald!! Go outside and talk to that creepy friend of yours who doesn't speak" *Rons line* "You're the intern Ron, don't speak for my business"

"God, and I thought I was weird!"

"Keep this up and I might have to make you and Ron fight to the death to be my number 2" (TXT)

I go between chopper tail, mixed up with coke trash talk, on maneuvoures, defender. I do rr once in a while. Sometimes if I have a friend ill smash out a 16x coveted playlist with the buzzard. I actually did boneyard survival with my second character today while bored lol. Not worth the time for the 30k but I also picked up 3k in cash and ammo/guns.

but people want Quality over Quantity, bro.

 

What I realize is that some missions which take a long time, have unpredictable chance of success, or which cannot be done solo, are worth doing once or twice for fun (or more likely for frustration) and to appreciate the mission design.  But there is no point in wasting time on them, if you want to level up or make money fast, which is the point of this thread.  

 

RR, Defender, Chopper Tail are my 3 easy solo RR/$$ grinders -- each about $17K net after ammo, and about 3000 RP.  All others pay less or can't be reliably done solo.  I like Chopper Tail because the clock is fixed at noon, so you can see the world very well.  Defender has its clock fixed at 9 PM, so it's dark and not as fun to look around.

I've been grinding Mixed Up With Coke. Only suggest it if you DON'T do it on foot. I do the whole thing in my Buzzard and I finish it in about 4 minutes tops. The rockets lock onto everything even enemies bodies.
$13,500 payout and I think about 3000RP.


You don't need a buzzard to do mixed up with coke in < 4 minutes.

Try grinding a x16 crystal clear out 3 with a buzzard...@ 40000+ rp $160000 /hr solo.

Did this daily, made most of my money off that mission. I'd stop around $900,000 then do it all over again the next day

theres ton of missions with better RP, but are you willing to work for it is the question?

You want the easy route--Satellite Communcations or Diamonds are for Trevor, up 4900RP


You want the most?? Method in the Madness pays up to 6000 RP if done correctly with crew or friends.


But Im warning you Rooftop Rumble has spoiled alot of players and they cant handle Jobs that take longer than 5 minutes so keep that in mind. Theres plenty more mission but I named a few classics instead of popular ones.

Chopper Tail is so much better, or Defender. They don't pay as much, but they're a lot more fun to do in my opinion. Bust Out is a really good mission as well.

Chopper tail gives you 3000+ RP and a payout of $17,250 & is even quicker with a buzzard or any heli.
