Tips for managing your money

Now I saw that the payouts are a bit wonky and some people are panicking about their money.

 

So here are some of my personal tips of managing money on gta online

 

1. Don't buy everything that is released

 

I stress this a lot. You don't have to buy every jet,or boat,plane,cars. You think your winning but in reality your actually losing as your income goes down. Personally if you want to spend only thing I can see worth spending is weapons.

 

2 try before you buy

 

See that nice vehicle that was added in a update don't impulse buy. Do some research from what others think about it or try it before you buy in sp. that way if you like it then you won't have buyers regret later.

 

3. Always keep track how much u spend

 

For example I'm doing a mission and I spend 18k on refilling all my ammo. I keep a mental note saying "ok I spent 18k just gotta do a mission to make my money back" that way you don't lose income as fast and gain what u lost..

 

4. Try not to go crazy in free mode

 

I can not tell you how much people burn money in free roam. Be a bit more Conscience when your in free mode. Whenever that's calling Lester or tanks and merryweather.

 

These are my personal tips that i use to manage my money.

 

Hope this can help others.

The irony of my money spending is quite funny, In real world, I deal with business a lot so money is a big factor, I have to calculate everything make sure parts of buisness have this and that etc.

 

BUT in game, I forget all that and just spend like an idiot and end up having to grind a pole to make money.

1 i know right, but only people doing that are kids i hope ?:)

2 yea well, i have the habbit to watch other people go first generaly(i bought the jet and just like expected, its flies great, all other things seemed more for someone involved in a crew much...and gosh, i am right thinking the chopper woudnt be faster then a buzzard :p )

for most other vehicles, i am subscribed to broughy since the high life update or so :)

actualy he is covering aircraft to now :p

3 something strange though, i lost 900 000 mil, it even shows on my bank acount....yet i dont have the slightest idea how that came :p

4 Always going crazzy in freemode when someone atacks me, but yea thats it :)

and yea, when loosing or using explosives, you easely gonna waste in the 10 000 :)

not to mention clothes...wow

Thanks OP, but this is obvious, common sense (judging by this forum sometimes, it seems to be uncommon, though)

But I like my masks, especially the bear one. :)

Yep, the problem in this game isn't making money, it's managing your money. You don't need to buy every new Pegasus vehicle, and you don't need to buy overpriced masks, horns, and gun tints. And worst of all, free-roam is the ultimate money-sink--especially since most players can't even be bothered to do the few money-making opportunities FR offers (bounties, kill targets, armored cars, Simeon vehicles, robbing stores)...

I stopped buying ammo long time ago. It's a waste of money. Simply collect it from corpses (you can always get sh*tload of ammo from doing survivals). And don't waste 10 bullets on one enemy. One shot in the head is enough. I also don't buy explosives if i have none. Stickies may get things done faster, but 600 for one bomb is just a waste.

Buying only 100% armor for all your cars when you hit rank 100 will save you some money, too.

Similar with apartments and garages - only buy the ones with 10 garage spots.

best tip for money saving in this game is: play the game to please yourself not worry about if your fund is going up or down, buy what you like and not what is the 'in' thing, don't call in air strikes or other costly activities....


oh and 'DON'T ever go full retard in FR'

Buy a Buzzard and use it on near enough all missions you can. You'll save yourself a ton of cash not having to buy ammo.

I like a few of the posts calling you their dad its like

 

"F YOU MOM AND DAD I DO WHAT I WANT

 

"Honey you really should think about your mone"

 

"F you MOM I know what I'M doing!"

 

OT: Missions are boring to me when I die because my teammates go Rambo and all die and I'm behind cover in LS connection with re spawning enemies while there is one teammate standing at the original spawn and the camera is orbiting him for 10 mins until he comes back and dies trying to use the rocket.

 

So I use the squirrels method

Stop delaying hists. Everyone knows that for every $100000 you glitch Rockstar delay the hists by one week and then shoots dead an endangered animal.

It doesn't matter what I believe. I'm not doing any glitching or anything like that so it doesn't affect me personally. I've been able to afford the stuff Ive needed and wanted legitimately over time. If people are gonna glitch, mod and cheat then they do so at their own risk. Obvs the risk of getting banned is much higher than youe typical GTA gamer.

1) have or make friends on gta

2) play playlists all night with your friends.

3) when your friends go to sleep make more maps to add to playlists for tomorrow

4) don't forget to deposit your 100's of thousands of dollars every once in a while.
