-THE FACTS SO FAR-

There is a minimum and maximum payout for each mission.

Variables in payout include time, number of players, and difficulty setting.

The longer the mission takes, and the more players in the mission, the more money you will make (up to the maximum payout).

-THE QUESTION-

What is the most efficient way to grind money as fast as possible?

How can we find the point at which waiting to finish the missions (and making more money) is not worth the extra time?

I already noticed on one payout posted by someone who runned the same mission 2 times and posted results somewhere on the forum that though that spending more time increases the overall payout, its not raised like that that it is gonna be beneficial to take as much time as posible, if looking at the payout/time ratio

Well I been playing Titan mission and it pays off 20k. Do that 5 times in a day and you will have 100k per day.

I'm sure Rockstar's new brilliant idea won't go well.

People will always find and popularize the absolute most efficient way to grind, because that's the whole point of grinding. However, now that the mission payouts are actually balanced it won't be a choice between a couple of ~4min ~18k missions and a bunch of longer, harder ones that pay less than 10k. Now, there are at least a half a dozen <10min missions which pay 22k+.

If you workout the payouts vs time ot doesnt work out taken longer. The longer you take the less per minute you actually earn. Someone already posted that a misson took them 6mins and got 14k but took longer at 12 minute and got 22k. Therefore if they just did it twice at 6mins they would of got 28k ie they lost 6k for taking longer

The forgotten variable is effort.

Are you willing to wait another few minutes and make slightly less than optimal $ per hour?

But what about the time it takes to reset up that mission and inviting and load up screens? And what if you can't get the maximum amount of people to play the second time?

I just played it with one other person, because no one else would join. It was set to hard and we only got 12k. Its not easy getting the maximum amount of players to play.

The mission to grind right now is Los Santos Connection with 3 players you'll get roughly 23k-25k and 4,000-4,500rp I haven't played it with 6 players and it might give more money

The point of the last update was that you don't NEED TO GRIND ANYMORE.  Play any mission you want and you can make decent money for the time you put into it.  How is this so hard to understand??

 

The people that grinded RR to the point where that was the only mission any player could get into anymore are the ones who CAUSED this.

Fine if your willing to wait until you have 2 friends online, but dont do it with randoms. LS connection has always been a troll favorite and I'm sure now it will move to the top of the list

Child logic. Instead of having fun they either ruin others fun or grind one mission over and over for their chrome cars.

I agree with Kazandra.

Rockstar were always going to change mission payouts, they will know exactly

how many times each missed was launched and I'm quite sure Rooftop would

be top of the list, as she says you can make decent money from most missions

now.

 

I'd say this is the right way to go for now as I only saw ONE invite to Rooftop

the whole of last night, everyone else was trying other missions though I should

say I fear Hack N Dash will be the next Rooftop Rumble because of its higher

payout and not needing armour/bullets to complete.

The people who caused this horrible new payout system are those who complained about grinders. The support forum was chock full of people complaining about Rooftop Rumble. Rockstar seem to listen to those who are most vocal on their forum and who send in emails.

 

As always, the people who complain get their way at the expensse of the majority.

I agree

 

and would go a bit further i wish missions had a replay time limit, after you complete it its a 45 minute wait to play it again

not really. Good players will READ the new update notes and ADAPT to them. The good players will gain the same, if not more RP and $. Im pretty sure majority of the community won't complain about this update. No more 50% drop off for repeat missions? Plus i get $18,900 per Rooftop Rumble with 2 others on hard. Add a 4th and you get $24,000. Who's really gonna cry about that? A bad player probably. Take your time and get more money. That is what a "good" player does.

Exactly this, only those who have not read the notes or picked up the new approach are likely to

complain.

 

I never liked the rush approach on missions, I always take my time and now its paying off.

Is this alone or with anyone? Im not that familiar with this mission, I don't even know if you can change the difficulty, but if so, what did you have it on?

2 tips to maximise money in this patch...
1. Play solo, free aim, hard. This means you get the RP bonuses of every objective, extra time has to be taken with only 1 life to spare and you have to locate as well as kill your enemys, rather than auto locking everyone in a matter of seconds. Time is increased as well as player function (some people refer to a game as 'effort' is ludicrous) so best of both.
2. 'Roleplay' the mission rather than calling a buzzard everytime or spamming the auto-shotty/grenade launcher. Take your time, enjoy the game, enjoy the mission. It helps if you have a mic and actually use game chat, I know it kinda sucks for free roaming sometimes but in missions you can meet new people and work together/communicate. (Alien concept to some, I gather)

Try to make the mission last 5 mins and no longer than 10;

10 mins pays double that of 5 mins but lower than 5 it really starts to get reduced

For me, the new payouts are great even in playing missions solo. I'm super thorough, I have to kill each asshole trying to shoot me before I complete the objective, and that makes the mission take longer, so the longer I take the more money I make?

I'll happily get paid for playing the mission that way. Did Fueling the Flames last night, made sure to kill every single lost before taking the tanker, got paid around 17k.

That mission only paid around 6k before.


So yeah, at first it seemed R* f*cked us over, but in reality, they made the game more fun to play by giving us rewards for playing older, different missions.

To be honest, we need to find the specific amount of time needed to wait in certain missions before the absolute maximum cash can be rewarded. This would help eradicate alot of wasted time by fellow forum members.
