'I need a million, quick'

Recommended Posts

Lonely-Martin

Just thought this could be a fun thread. Maybe helpful too, but here there's no right or wrong answers or methods. Just a bit of fun to share 'our' ways/preferences etc.

 

There's so many ways to make money in game, (cards and glitches too of course), but let's just pretend, or for many, you don't have a stash of cash but we do have a great variety of options in game and that 'something' just got added that you must have or have been hoping for. Could be anything, but that's beside the point. It costs a full $1million and you 'gotta have it' is my meaning here.

 

What's your go-to to score a quick million by your standards/based off of where you are in game? Quick is relative of course as we're all in different places etc.

 

Could be anything, any way you can right now. Just thought it would be fun to read responses. (As usual, if a repeat or unwarranted thread, by all means lock her up).

 

Thanks for reading. :)

Sell an overpriced Super I never use anymore! Quick million 😛

 

Usually though, on a day to day basis, my million usually comes from VIP work. I literally reckon that me and @Verstappen have done so much VIP work, we could purchase half of San Andreas with our earnings combined :lol:

This is a fun idea OP.

 

I'd have to say after 5+ plus years of grinding I've had enough. If I needed a quick million, I'd fill up and bunker and make sure the nightclub was producing and go AFK. 

 

OR like the guy above me, just sell a car I hardly use, as this quick million could have only been for a vehicle and I'd need to make the space anyhow.

When my bank account drops to sub 4M, I go to my bunker and BUY supplies, then I just start doing I/E missions and between the sales (cool down time) I do the Headhunter VIP work and sell Ballers and Felons when possible. I do try to do them in "peaceful" sub 15 players lobbies. When I have around 10M, I stop. Before I/E and bunkers I did crate work, but that really was awful grinding and making the sell with plane was doomed to fail.

we survived them dlcs, we survived them dripfeeds.. i gotta keep faith, they will not crush us.. i just need time, time and bunker, and NO TRYHARDS.

 

buy supplies for bunker, coke, nightclub is producing, import/export 5 top range cars then sell them, client jobs..

1 million in less than two hours if i didn't have some cash already.. 

 

 

btw i would just wait until i have 1 million, i refuse to spend 2 hours in making money.. i only play for fun, i can't waste 2 hours just like that...

when arena war just come out i remember i had pretty much nothing, i sold two appartements and cheval taipan if i'm not lying, so i can afford a workshop, only cuz i realized that i need workshop to save AP..

 

cheval taipan if that its name gotta go, fashionable, beautiful but not reliable i guess, ❤️

A million dollars without access to my cash reserves or my existing business infrastructure? hypothetically speaking?

 

Garage Sale!!!!

 

I can think of at least 5 cars & a couple of planes I can boot off the island without remorse.

 

If a Garage sale is not kosher, I'll probably run a DDH Heist, Act II is relatively easy. That hot item better be an X6 or a Cullinan to get me back to heisting, ya dig?

Oh man, VIP Work is the backbone of my organization! I wouldn't be where I'm today without it.

 

In 2017 alone I did over 4000 jobs. I reckon 2018 is closer to 7500 if not more thanks to 2x$ on VIP work. #TheAddictionIsRealz 😂😉

Just an FYI, businesses count too. Basically I was curious as to what people's go-to's are on those days where a quick mil is needed or wanted, lol. 

 

Loads of good ways out there. We all have our preferences of how to score good cash. And for us longer term players with great options, we're at that luxury of taking our pick. :)

Absolutely! Rarely need an excuse to heist, but when a target is in mind, I relish these even more. 

 

If this wasn't an option, VIP work, TB missions, and the nightclub are all I'll need when plodding alone. Love that nightclub for its flexibility. :)

That's what, more than 15 jobs per day considering you're not playing daily? You did some time!

4000 in a year is almost 11 per day. To be fair, on a good day like a full and free Saturday off and just indulging in the game, I do a lot more than that, lol. 

 

Totally get ya, it's an awful lot looking at the numbers in retrospect. But if only 5 minutes a job, mixed with 5 min TB jobs too these days, it's very easy when keen to just rack those numbers up without thinking, lol.

 

Bloody good earner is the VIP/TB charge. :)

Yea, if you're playing daily. In these numbers I'm more impressed with consistency, actually.

That's another interesting line I'm getting a lot which mirrors some of my Online routines: without thinking. Damn.

Oh crikey yeah. Don't get me wrong, I couldn't do that as consistently either, lol.

 

The whole 'not thinking' auto-pilot plod is good at times. Bit of music or some buddies to chatter with, very easy to sink the time. Though easy to get carried away too when saving up for something or before a DLC with good 2x. All good fun.

  I try to keep my large warehouse around 70 crates, so I guess I would just fill it up and sell it off.

  Sell off a few cars I don't use any more and go from there.

Oh okay, I thought you meant without them. In that case,

 

Business as usual!

 

I've set up a cycle that provides me with an easy 2 Millions every Tuesday to cover whatever interests me, be it a dripfeed content or an item on sale. ;)

 



My weekly cycle goes like this:

 

- 2 Crate missions a day for my medium warehouse, it takes 14 missions to fill it up. Start on Tuesday, it'll be ready by Monday, sell on Tuesday. Easy $735k.

 

- Have a $140k worth of stock in the Bunker before I log off on Monday night. Another easy $210k.

 

- Have a $112k worth of stock in the Cocaine lockup before I log off on Monday night. $168k.

 

- Sell whatever stock on my Nightclub once a week, usually around a million.

 

It all rounds up to a cool 2 Million dollars ;)

 

That way, whatever I make during the week goes straight into my cash reserves.

 

And in the rare occasions I need more than 2 Millions to cover my Tuesday's expenses, I break the emergency glass & tap into my cash reserves. Luckily it only happened 3 times so far. Warstock sale right before Bikers in '16, the Black Friday sale in '17 & the Elitas sale in late '18

Yea, its been a rough couple of years & I had to get my frustration out somehow.

 

Come to think it, 2018 is closer to 7500 thanks to the 2x$ on VIP work..

 

Say, I've noticed you mentioned a Helicopter bug during Headhunter a couple of times, I don't think I'm familiar with it, can you elaborate on that?

You have a nice routine, solo-friendly, that's good. Shame we can't play on PC together. The bug is absolutely simple: if the headhunter is started, the passenger of the helicopter you're piloting will jump out without any request from you or the passenger, when near target or first target is dead. Basically, your gunner gets kicked all the time. Happens in Hunter and in Savage, not sure about others since I prefer these things.

If you're fit and not doing it already, allow me to recommend some gym time too. That heals, proved.

I’ll do my daily objectives first off to cover in game expenses. Then I’ll sell whatever is in my bunker and vehicle cargo. Then run a head hunter and collect my night club passive income. Usually make about over a million doing that routine. If friends or crew need help selling I’ll help them in between jobs.
