Have nothing to do on a crappy day other than stay indoors, no friends online to play too?

Well here's a decent way to earn cash in-game with little effort, & enjoy doing other things around the house for most of the time.

Please note I've only done this on the Xbox One, Xbox One S, & Xbox One X.

PS4 owners if you try it, let me know if it works for you, I know your dashboard setup is different.

Confirmed to work on PC version, thanks to Khephera.

This is a rather old method, however I haven't seen a solid guide about it.

 

 

What You Need:

CEO Status (& Necessary Required Purchases To Have It)

Armored Boxville Purchased (& Necessary Purchases To Buy It)

 

Recommended: Maze Bank West CEO office.

 

 

 

Steps:

 

#1: Start an Invite Only Session.

#2: Register as a CEO

#3: Start Fortified & proceed to the AB (Armored Boxville).

#4: Enter the AB & then leave it.

#5: You've got 9-9.5 minutes to do whatever you want away from the game.

#6: As soon as you win/earn the cash, change your outfit to make the game save.

#7: Immediately exit the entire game via dashboard, then start back up the game.

#8: Repeat process.

 

 

My technique:

 

Having Maze Bank West as a CEO office, it takes about 15 seconds from either personal vehicle or helicopter to get to the AB's location from my office (as it spawns at Pacific Bluffs for me). After I enter the AB & exit it, I then travel shortly over to the other side of the cemetery or land on a nearby building, to prevent the spawning AI from attacking me. Then usually either spend the 9ish minutes exercising &/or listening to music. Upon the job's completion, saving is key/making sure that I change my outfit so I can see the orange save circle icon. Then & only then quiting the entire game via dashboard, as this skips the 30 minute cool-down on the job's timer in exchange for starting a new session, CEO registration, entirely new load in for the game. Given I have an Xbox One X (Scorpio!) now, it only takes about 1-2 minutes to load back into an invite only session, from the game restarting/loading up to single-player, until being back in my CEO office. To note however I have used this technique originally back on my X1 & X1S & still found it worth it.

 

 

Note:

 

- You earn $35,000 per run, $30,000 if you opt not to enter the AB at all. It's up to you, the $5,000 stacks up over time. 

- You earn around 3,000 RP. That's not alot compared to some other methods, but it's quite a bit for you doing basically nothing.

- You do NOT need to wait for the AB to explode before quiting the game, despite technically the job is still active until it does.

- Sometimes a random quick save will occur immediately upon you winning the money, this is not the save to rely on.

- Yes I know it takes alot of money to actually be able to start using this technique, but it's here for those interested.

- Alternatively you can just incorporate Fortified with Heandhunter & Sightseer jobs as a more active day of play.

- This isn't everyone's cup of tea, but it's a very easy "grind", that requires little effort & allows you to go do other things for most of the time.

^ I consider this a "No randoms, no effort, no problem!" type of approach.

- Other members have suggested using "Last Location" setting for your spawn into online, making it a shorter trip back to the AB on the next run.

- Again this description may seem long & too much effort, however the whole process is actually pretty dang simple & quick.

 

*Pro Tip*

If you have a Bunker/Gunrunning Business, incorporate it's passive stock manufacturing with this.

The Fortified runs will more than compensate for the resupplies of your Bunker.

 

- If you want to spice things up/be active, take the AB to a police station &/or call for police, law enforcement AI will "Ally" with you for as long as the job timer is active, even if you open fire on them. However they will engage both hostile foot units AND helicopters that spawn. It's one of the rare opportunities in this game where you can team up with police in-game without repercussions of them targeting you. The hostile AI will keep spawning in random vehicle/helicopter waves until the timer is done, so be ready for most police stations to run out of officers over time, however there's one or two I've chilled at that held off the entire time. Plus as mentioned, you can call emergency services for backup whenever you run low on police support. The Vespucci police station seems to have some well armed officers with shotguns at times, or at LSIA where they possess assault rifles.

 

 

 

Warning!

 

There's a bug where sometimes if you are in Ammunation/actually in an inventory/weapons buying menu & the job ends, you will only earn $5,000.

I have no idea why this happens, however several times now it's occurred to me when I was actively playing the job & buying a new parachute bag.

Also others have now mentioned that you may get no $ reward if you are accessing your personal phone's internet at the time of the job timer ending.

wow, i do fortified a lot but i didn't know it was spammable like that. I'm gonna have to try it sometime. Thanks OP!

 

EDIT: been doing it for a few hours now, I find it works better if you set your spawn to last location (especially near the cemetery as you spawn within walking distance of the boxville)

yeah thats basically how I play gta noways. 

- spawn in yacht ( its next to quarry - to far away for anyone to bother + no easy way to access the beach) 
- start Piracy Prevention (30k) I have time for checking whats new in the update / shopping / buying ammo / hunting for bounties / doing whatever I want 
- resupply bunker (sandy shores)
- Start Fortified
- quit game after I finish 

If I'm afk - I just lag everyone off after starting PP

if i'm in the mood for pvp shenanigans - I like to hide Armored Boxville somewhere inside Fort Zancudo. Everyone who fires a gun inside the base will be hunted by the military (extra protection).

So usually I'm just leaving the van inside and getting a plane for myself. 


either way - I'm getting at least 65k just for f*cking around in freeroam or for going afk for 20m

Thanks for the tip ...I always start the game off by selling a modded sandking then running fortified in an invite only session . I will certainly try thus out . Also I found if I am on the in game phone on the Internet as the mission ends I've gotten nothing for payout. It has happened with fortified and PP .

Huh, another bug I guess with the job ending, just like the $5,000 earnings if you are in an ammunition store buy menu.

Great post, this is exactly what I do. I can make around a mill a day with this strategy. Combine with sell missions of weapons and coke and I/E work.

I did learn a thing or two from this post, I had no idea I was sacrificing 5k everytime I didn't get in the AB (I used the extra couple minutes to mess around in game or afk), and of course the glitches.

I'm always looking for more ways to make Fortified more interesting when I play it. LSIA should be interesting, with the assault rifles lol :p I thought about taking it to a subway entrance where the cop spawns with an assault rifle but I think LSIA would be better.

I honestly never even thought about that, excellent idea as it completely bypasses having to exit the CEO office & possible shower time.

It's actually impressive how aggressive those police are near LSIA, they will even run across the road to the multi-level parking lot building just to get better shots at hostile helicopters.

Something I just learned during this job, if you call for police assistance:

 

- Walk up to the cruiser & simply throw the driver out.

- Hop in & start driving, don't stop, the passenger officer won't bail.

- When the job is over, you'll get a 1-2 star wanted level immediatly, but still the passenger officer won't do anything.

- You can lose the wanted level despite having the cop still riding with you.

- If you finally come to a stop after losing the wanted level, the passive cop will still exit the car, & suddenly turn hostile.

Awesome, thanks for clearing that up!

I figure Velocity works identically, except that job actually involves constant player engagement.

Just a more active $35,000 job with the same cool-down settings.

if fortified is started in packed lobby, under construction tunnel is best place to hide. 99% you are safe there.

Speaking of hiding. The Yacht is the best place for a Boxville in a packed lobby.

With enabled AA-defence.

 

 

 

Not even a Hunter can take the prize :p
