It's 84k sometimes (126k out of county) as well as 112k (168k out of county). It varies really.

 
For me it's 168k far, every time without fail - that's with starting both bars fully empty, ordering supplies, and waiting two hours.
 
I have a suspicion that switching sessions might results in loss of progress though - perhaps that's the issue. If so that's going to be chunky as it's produced in half hour blocks - unlike gunrunning every 7 minutes.
My thought on the coke glitch is that it uses a small amount of supplies to bring it back to "zero" when fully empty. When I buy supplies when I sell it usually only makes 1.5 bars. But, if I let it use some of the supplies still in it (usually 2.5 bars of supplies are left when selling full product) I'll get the full 2 bars production. I just let it use some of that .5 bar in my travel time after the sale back to the coke lockup to buy more.

I need to update my thinking. Today I noticed my first set of supplies did get me the full 2 bars, but the second set of supplies only got me 1.5 bars. I'd bet there is a weird timing issue with how supplies are used and when the game registers effort towards completing production. It probably only shows up because a half bar is noticeable and a half hour is a heck of a long time. Probably why bunker is only 7 minutes and not an hour.

Ever notice when you enter your bunker the supplies bar looks weird, like it's glowing from supplies being added? There always seems to be a bit more supplies in the bar than expected when I enter the bunker for the first time in a session. For example, it's full when there should be a little bit missing or there is a little bit when it should be empty. I'd be willing to bet this is evidence of a fix to prevent the coke glitch from happening to the bunker. They probably give a small amount of supplies to your bunker whenever you enter a new session.

In some weeks, I already made 6Mio from glitched supplies, the problem its you cannot play actively meanwhile, its very deep AFK money method, when you're at work or if you plan to leave the game for 2 hours.

Since my research complete on 100 Pct production. I usually sell in LS $210 k worth ($75k purch supplies) but only if optimal session (easier find late at night) bc never know what delivery vehicle get hosed with. Also do AE. Will not do GR if hosed w multiple delivery vehicles. I am lone wolf.

Otherwise PP in fairly low pop session, playlist stuff.

Is it possible to sell 4 cars at once when playing on your own?

Obviously you can only drive one at a time, but can you leave the others and come back to them?

I've done multiple runs on my own before with crate selling.

Class thread, but was wondering whats the best methods without a bunker/office etc apart from heists. Trying to save up 2 million for a office and a car warehouse, on about 900k but 2 mill will take forever. Waiting for the 2x event hoping it comes soon.

Good guide.

I'd recommend doing your daily objectives, all I do to make money is to keep up the DOs for the half a mil bonus and sell a blue or yellow Sentinel. I don't bother playing the game properly and just doing that gives me enough cash to get everything I want.

Not the most efficient way to make money but it's easy and it works.

The lone wolf dies, but the pack survives.

But excellent post OP. I love playing the game with or without friends.

Thanks. I'd say join Pac Std Heists. Don't wait around for a finale like some Johnny come lately's do, join set ups until you find a good group of players who aren't going to screw it up. If they're all wearing Heist Heavy Combat suits, that's normally a good sign - at least they won't die easily.

As a big fan of the show, I appreciate that! Yeah I prefer to play with a team of friends when possible. Sometimes you want to earn cash though and they're not online - that's what this guide is designed for.

Cheers. Yes daily objectives are great, especially if you can keep it up for the month bonus - the problem for me is I can't play every day.

These days you only need $50k on hand to be a VIP. It's not a bad idea to go into an invite only session to do VIP missions and alternate headhunter and sightseer. Grab a helicopter off the map and you can do sightseer in around 6 minutes for about $20k. Headhunter also pays around $20k, but might be a bit of a challenge unless you have a Kuruma. The best players can finish it in the city in around 4 minutes. Back to back, you can get around $175k an hour. Without a buzzard or Kuruma, headhunter might slow you down some, but I'd think around $150k an hour would be a reasonable expectation. Its how I originally got my money to buy a buzzard.

Pro solo heisters do that, abuse Quick Job from invite-only. Never play the four setups. Waste of time, playing the Bike setup is fine, but don't play other setups, its random, random heist leaders may want to keep you, or not. A friend has logged? You played the four setups for that random leader, but he don't care about you, you wasted your time playing setups in this case, already happened.

Never ask 20%, since you only play final or the last setup, do everything possible to speed the process.

I made millions like that, and met some very skilled peoples.

I would get either Smoke Tree Road (proximity to airport) or Farm House (proximity to the city) as a bunker. Don't get a business in Sandy Shores as the drop offs are in LS and you will lose so much time it's not worth the money you save in the long term.

For Coke I'd get the cheapest one in Sandy Shores.
