This is just for those among us who get their kicks off just causing mayhem and running amok in GTAO.

What I'd like to know is what your best tactics are to lure in other players to your location, for nothing more than the sheer fun of stirring up a bit of mischief and malevolent behavior in a boring lobby.

Here's some of mine:


• Go to top of FIB building and text other players that "hacker dude is dropping free money bags!"
• Call other players on the ingame phone, relentlessly ($10 per call, btw).
• Send muggers and mercs on nearby player whose done nothing to me.

• Lock CEO associates in shops using a car to block the door and just taunt the player from outside using "Jerk" action.

• Go Passive and enter an area where other players are, then call the Cops, Fire, and a Taxi.

I'm sure there are lots of other methods, which I'd love to know more about! 

Thanks in advance for sharing your wisdom! Cheers! :)

Put ignition bomb on any of the NPC custom cars. Works almost every time.

Telling that you're doing money giveaway or playing as a female character usually a good way to lure players to you.


From my experience, when i see a money beggar, sometimes i ask my friend to tell him to roll by. Then i put stickies on my friend's back, then boom.

I like hiding in the subway when I have a bounty, but I make sure to go under a building that's got a good roof for hiding on, so everyone thinks I'm up there.  Then I start to text players who come looking for me, taunting them with classics like, "Top kek"

Y'all doing too much. Just stand in a store or get a haircut. Literally. Just stand/sit there... The bottom-feeders, the lowest common denominators will come for you without fail. Hell, you can literally sit in one spot on the map for a bit, and they'll come.

Kill a player that likes to rage on chat. Let the rage nerd chase you to a building or a subway with only one or two exits. Throw some proxies down and let the fun begin. I've killed a few rage nerds at least 10 times with that tactic. I could almost hear the faint screaming through the angry words on the chat box as I was laughing myself to tears.

Start Haulage in a crowded session, preferably in an MOC cab.

Do hostile takeover at the LSIA when the city has a lot of players there. Use an insurgent pickup with a friend on the gun. Spam mines and chase everyone. Don't bother delivering the package, just kill. Best fun you can have in this game.

Play Piracy Prevention on Vespucci Beach and text other players that "hacker dude is dropping free money bags!" and kill them all.
Or play Fully Loaded and text to other players "come with a Hydra, nub".

Play as a female character. 8/10 you'll have someone offering you Zentorno rides.

Play music in your mic. Shaggy "It Wasn't Me" on repeat is a good choice. Sing along only to "It wasn't me" part.

Keep your mic on and have a conversation with someone in the room you're in. Or just mutter things to yourself. Coughing optional.

Start narrating everything you do. Try your best to do a Morgan Freeman impersonation. Making buying snacks the most fascinating thing possible.

Now this won't attract any friendlies or enemies, just for laughs, but ask everyone if they know about the newest DLC: Beachbum. Deny what others are saying about bunker/hangar/CEO/biker nonsense. Call them "big fat lairs!"

Ask who wants to fight, really. That usually works.

Put on horrible music and tell the lobby youll turn it off once someone finds and kills you. Insult everyone and their mother to speed up the process

Now hide in the sewers, but find one of those stairs that looks like it leads up to the street. It doesnt, it just goes around some railing to a dead end. But if you climb up and hide behind the pillar, no one can find you. Theyll have to get out of their car and climb up there to find you.

Ive never been found there. Best hiding spot in the game. I did it once playing the chicken dance song loudly on a loop, it was so f*cking annoying

Start a Piracy Prevention or just stand on your yacht. You don't even have to be doing anything. Eventually you'll notice someone on the coast trying their hardest to snipe you with thermal.


Text them "vote trump for 2020" <- Dude this always works, I got a submarine and went allll the way to the back of the map, all the way under a rock at the very bottom of the ocean, and then simply spammed that to everyone's phone. 20 people working together to kill me. sh*t, I even brought bloods and crips, grove street and ballas together using this simple method. LOL.


Get on the mic and play terrible music or call everyone noobs and bragging about how good you are at the game.


Be a low level in general. This is self-explanatory.


Get a Hydra, go Ghost. Kill literally everyone in the lobby in 2 minutes, then when it expires, take the easy way out. LOL everyone would be dying to match the score with you. The funniest part is they'll start killing each other and you can go get a haircut or something. Kick back and relax while they slaughter each other for absolutely no reason, other than coming in contact while trying to get a revenge kill on you.

When people play lousy, talentless, repetitive, autotuned and generally annoying "money-n-bitches"-style rap over their mic, do the same thing to them but with the harshest and most distorted black metal instead. Pick a place, get ready, and start sending some souls to the virtual hell. I usually keep it simple. A few stickys here and there and some large guns.

Hang out in Rockford Hills with the Anti-Aircraft Trailer parked in an alleyway. For some reason people in Rockford Hills must at least investigate every blip- especially when said blip is rare and unfamiliar to them.

When they present themselves, shred with Meat Chopper. Repeat. Laugh.

I just, quite literally, have to drive around.

I don't even have to do anything, somebody always comes to pester me, specially those jetbikes, it seems like I'm a magnet to them.

Which is why the Vigilante is so good, no special blip on the radar means I can cover myself while waiting until a jetbike comes around the corner, then it's a all matter shooting first and blasting away using the boost, works everytime.

Here is something that worked for me sometimes. Find a random kid (who is usually who will belive that) and tell him to help you with a "New Money Glitch" and if it works you would help him back.
Invent some steeps, and include something that can make him thrust you, then end that "Glitch" killing him as the final steep.
Repeat with an excuse that you need to do it more times for more profit or just say it failed, then you can do or:
1) Tell him it worked, and when he starts doing your "Awesome" steps leave the session, he will probably message you asking why you left or if you can help him or something like that. You can ignore or keep the fun.
2) You show the truth, probably would end in rage from the kid, going for vengance or rage quit the session.

Call in a tank, and immediately before getting in start the "Executive Search" VIP mission, then drive into the area.  You and your tank are now off radar within that area for the duration, no stars.  It's pretty fun, but honestly you don't even need the tank, easy enough with standard weapons.  Try not to kill them until they're around the middle of the area so they keep spawning in your trap.  :)
