What is the best way to grind cash?


Recommended Posts

So I am currently trying to make enough money to buy the Deluxo for GTA$3,550,000, but I only have $1,000,000 so far. I feel like there are ways to grind cash much faster in the game. Currently, I grind Martin's Dispatch missions with my friend since they are quick and give $10,000 - $20,000 each. When I am solo, I grind a mix of Business Special Cargo, VIP Work, and maybe some missions here and there. So, I am asking what is the fastest way to grind a lot of cash quickly?

Sometimes I grind with a friend, and some other times I grind solo. I have also heard that Bunkers are profitable, but require a large investment. Could someone tell me more about this? I'm open to reply to questions too! I just wanna make my grinding time worth it.

Almost everyone will tell you to save up for a Kosatka submarine using your existing businesses as the Cayo Perico Heist alone can make you in excess of a million per hour working by yourself - and that includes both the setups and the mission.  I would suggest you keep on saving up until you can afford the Sparrow helicopter with the submarine as it makes the heist setups so much faster and easier.

If doing the Cayo Perico heist isn't for you (and it really should be if you're wanting money), then you can use the million you have to purchase a vehicle warehouse which will fetch you up to 80k per car (ONLY sell the high-end cars, keep everything else and when the warehouse is 50% full you'll ONLY source high-end cars) - and space out the sells with VIP work and bunker sales.

This is decent advice but fill it too 100% not 50%, then only sell top tier and when you run out you source new top tier. Dont use terrorbyte to source cars (this can 'break' that top tier cars trick, nothing you have to worry about yet, but its good to remember if you do start doing this cars thing a lot and eventually get a terrorbyte) and also never sell collections, they are literally a waste of money.

----

 

My suggestion is to play heists on call, for your first few millions, if its a setup you earn 25-35k (shorter preparation-like-mission) if its a finale (the actual heist) then it pays like 75-500k (depending on finale & what cut you get) there are pretty much 4 kinds of heists, one of them @Gunbladelad already mentioned.


- Cayo Perico Heist, this takes place on a remote island and pays best, its the most recent addition & easy when playing with people who know the heist, but is also one of the hardest to join on call (because ppl can solo it and most players actually think that's the best approach) and the one thats most buggy and annoying.
- Casino Heist, this takes place at the Diamond casino & still pays pretty great, is easy when playing with people who know the heist, easier to join on call, i recommend you try to play these (before anybody mentions the kicks from lobby, that doesn't happen when you are like level 50-120)

- Doomsday Heists, these are 3 different heists that are connected by story, they take place in several government facilities, they pay pretty good, but is easily the hardest type of heist in the game, easier to join on call (also because a bunch of idiots still do some glitch with it) but you really should just avoid these as a low level, theres invisible npc's and all kinds of weird stuff to increase difficulty, do not play these yet.

- Classic Heists, these are actually 5 different heists, but they have a lot of similarities, these are the oldest heists in the game and by far the easiest ones to join, pay varies, but the later ones (like pacific standard bank) are still great pay even today.


----

 

In my opinion Cayo Perico is immensely overrated, and i would suggest you play some casino heists for your next few millions, then once you have some millions, instead of buying that deluxo, buy an arcade, using the arcade basement you will be able to start your own casino heists, and when you are hosting a heist thats when the real money starts rolling in, thats like 500k-1mil numbers for a single mission. When you get used to hosting the casino heist yourself earning millions should become a lot easier, then once you have like 10mil or more maybe consider going for the submarine and cayo perico heist. (but again, imo that heist is pretty crap so maybe read up on that a bit before deciding)

 

 

Good luck on your money making!

Yeah, +1 for the submarine and hitting that Cayo Perico heist up, big time. 

 

Easiest money in the game. 1 scope out mission, 5 preps, finale. 1 hour-1.5 hrs, 1.5m bucks. Solo, though having a friend join won't hurt either. So flexible and a piece of cake as it can be prepped in an invite only lobby rather than run the gauntlet of public sessions too.

 

Though it can take some time to find your groove, much like anything really, it can be a bit buggy on the stealth approach and to learn the kinks like scoping out, but if you're not worried about spoilers etc, head over here and there's loads of helpful tips and methods from many fine folk here...

Oh it definitely does, lol. But otherwise I agree it's worth jumping in to get experience along with some easy money when missions go well. Older heists are always fun here. Randoms are so entertaining!

 

Top tip: Just don't count on it going well and ya can't be disappointed. 🤣

I agree that heists and especially Cayo Perico one are easy way to earn money. Also look as businesses such as bunker for example. If  fully upgraded  - you buy supplies for $75K, then doing heists or whatever and in 2 hrs you can make a sale for 210K. Or you can buy more supplies and sell whole bunker for 1M. Or you can steal supplies and save some money. When you have 10M or 5 businesses it make sense to buy a Night Club, fully upgraded with 5 right businesses  it will generate about 43K  per game hour  and all you do it just sell stock  when it's full. If you leave game running overnight you'll get 500K next day.

Also I suggest that you ask somebody for test drive of Deluxo, in my opinion it's terribly slow and controls ae weird. You can't use small arms from it and missiles are limited. I don't have much use for it, for missions you're better off with Sparrow from Kosatka, Buzzard or armored Kuruma. If you are set to buy Deluxo - wait for a sale, Rockstar have sales every Thursday and eventually Deluxo will be 25-50% off.

The Deluxo is great and I also suggest submarine. What you earn with businesses is peanuts in comparison and Casino Heist ist terrible to make money (I like it though in terms of gameplay) and some of the preps are terrible too if you do them alone. But thanks to Perico Heist I can buy all the toys to do Doomsday or Casino preps.

 

@BTheEPIC

 

Which properties do you already have? Which heist finals have you already completed (you get 100k extra for first completition)? Did you do the bounty huntings and movie preps already, the serial killer quest? They all make a lot of money but can only be done once. Casino missions pay out well also for the first time. Maybe somebody here invites you to Perico heist.

It's still the second-best money maker in the game, after Cayo Perico. It takes longer to set it up, but not MUCH longer, and if you have one friend to play with regularly you'll both make about a million each per run for maybe 90 minutes of work. Once you memorize it to the point of being able to pull off the elite consistently, it goes up to 1.1 million on most runs.

^ This ^ Casino heist really isn't all that different from Cayo Perico if you know what you are doing and have some 'heist friends'

 

Hell even with randoms its pretty similar, equal amount of f-ups in both :kekw:

Casino Heist earned me 400k on average where Perico Heist earns me 1.5 mio on average and I have to ask a buddy to complete it with me which makes me feel stupid and wasting his time, even if he gets 50% cut and I bought the Torreador only to complete the underwater prep. So far playing the Casino heist cost me more money than it brought me in, but in terms of gameplay and story it is superior to Perico Heist.

If you're short on cash for the submarine and you have 50K on your bank account, you can find an armored Buzzard around the map and grind VIP work. If you do Sightseer and Headhunter back to back (20K each every 5 minutes if you're skilled) you'll get like 250K an hour. TheProfessional on YT have some videos about grinding methods if you don't own any property.

 

But as soon as you can, get the Kosatka and grind Cayo Perico, buy the Sparrow next to cut your prep times, and next maybe the missiles to cut even more time by blowing that Merryweather chopper to get a better location for your weapons prep. There's no better method to get cash if you're on a grinding mindset, meaning that you don't mind doing the same missions over and over for some time. You can make 5 Perico heists a week (1.5 hours each) and get around 6-7 millions, enough to buy a fully upgraded business or the vehicle of your liking (but ALWAYS buy on sale)

 

No other bussines will pay you more for your time, playing solo and on griefer-free invite only lobbies. 

 

Biker business are a tourist trap for newcomers, the Hangar is not good to make cash, Bunker makes some passive money only after full upgrades, the Facility is just a fancy garage and a paywall to unlock the Doomsday heist, CEO office and warehouses are solo friendly but your grinding time pays more on Perico, OG heists and Casino heist will pay well only if you have skilled and responsive friends on a crew that works like clockwork. And the Nightclub will make passive profit only with a fully upgraded basement and after you have bought mostly all the business I mentioned before.

 

BUT all that business have some activities and missions that are really fun and well done, so you can use your downtimes and cooldowns taking some invites and joining crews to see how they work.
After you had made enough Perico dough to buy at will you can choose the business and heists that better suit your tastes and then host them and play them for the sake of fun and enjoy their characters and stories. Once you start doing them without looking to your watch or you bank account you'll start enjoy them as gameplays instead of cash cows.

 

Remember you don't have to buy everything. It's not random that the Story Mode mentions 'the pursuit of the almighty dollar' on an ironic way. Choose the path that leads you to who you want to be in Los Santos: a heister, a crimelord, a militia boss, a biker, a racer, a PvP fighter, a casino big shot gambler, a plane/car collector, a nightclub tycoon, an arcade master? All of them, maybe? Roleplay is the key word.

I have to agree with the consensus. Definitely, at this stage of your Criminal career in GTAO, you don't want to be putting tons of money into impulse buys and expensive toys. The Deluxo is great, but also remember that it has to be upgraded, in addition to its initial purchase, so there's that. Honestly, the Kosatko Submarine is literally a huge game changer in GTA. If I were just starting out now, I would have one focus, and one focus only. Grinding out enough money to buy the Kosatko, without a lot of upgrades, and make sure you also save for the Sparrow, and upgrade it with missiles. It is the single most important vehicle for the Cayo heist preps, and its a real time saver, since it is parked in the Kosatko, and you can simply fly it to all your preps.

 

When I started playing about 10 months ago, I used @xInfected_Virus's awesome guide [here] and I suggest that until you can grind out enough for the Kosatko, and a few upgrades only, including the Sparrow, that should literally be your primary focus. At this stage, again now that the Cayo update is out, I wouldn't even worry at first about things like facilities, night clubs, arcades, high end apartments, MC businesses, and such. Not yet. Yes, 10 months ago, when this game was pre-Cayo, absolutely. You go through all the grind loops, work your ass off trying to save for bunkers and night clubs and upgrades, oh my. But now, I would even blow off the Arcade if I were you. Yes, Casino Heists are fine, but remember that you ALWAYS need at least two people. Once you get accustomed to the preps, and have a Sparrow in the Moon Pool storage space in the Kosatka, and once you get a little experience in the preps, you can easily blast through the preps and the solo Cayo finales in like 75 to 90 minutes, and you will be making at minimum $1.4 Million a pop, usually higher. But say you can average conservatively about $1.5 Million once you practice a little and can get the full Secondary loot (preferably cocaine) and get the Elite Challenge at will, for a $100K bonus for every Finale.

 

I love the Casino heists, don't get me wrong, and if you find a grinding partner, and both of you do your own preps, by yourselves, then come together to do back to back heists limiting it to TWO players only, there is money to be made there. The problem with the Casino heists, however, is you need to rely on others, a problem that does NOT exist with the Cayo heist. Additionally, it is a lot more work to get your character to the point where you can use the BEST entrance strat for Casino Heist, which is clearly the Gruppe Sechs + High Roller Outfits, or scoping every single point and other grinding busy work you have to do in order to do Silent & Sneaky. Seriously, all the businesses in GTAO are great.

 

I love the night club, bunker, and all the other stuff (I/E Warehouse, Special Cargo, MC businesses, bunkers, night club, Doomsday, arcade, etc, etc.) and I highly recommend you eventually get all of it. But you will find yourself making money hand over fist if you blow off all the other businesses until you have the Sub + Sparrow and learn how to do the solo cayo finales. Note that you make MUCH MUCH LESS money doing the Cayo heists with others. It is literally the best solo money maker in the game, bar none. And in my opinion, it is a much more efficient and profitable vehicle for moneymaking than ANYTHING in the game right now.

to anyone starting their priority at the moment should be making 2 million for the kosatka and getting good at hitting el rubio, once you master that money problems will be gone for good.

 

cayo perico is the easiest money i have ever made.

Actually the Deluxo works just as good as the Sparrow for Perico preps if not better, you can easily land it on the submarine and it handles better and easier than any helicopter. The Sparrow is overrated, it is good when the alternative is a Frogger but that's it, after all it's Grand Theft Auto not Grand Theft Helicopter.

The mk2 gets destroyed for some reason even if you park it properly but it never happened to me with the Deluxo, turn it back onto wheels and land in the rear part, it should be safe there, works for me.

The trick with the MK2 is not to leave it on the exterior of the sub, unfortunately. By the way, I think a future upgrade should allow you to store the MK2 in the sub, adjacent to the Torreador, which there would certainly be plenty of room for. It's not another full sized car. What I do with the MK2 is I land on the lower part, near the front hatch, and the second I get off, already toggled to the action menu, I very quickly click on Return to Storage. That's the only way I know of to not have to make a call to Mor's Mutual.

Your choice, but I'd say you'll have more fun just working your way up instead of focusing what makes most money. Do the Gerald things, Lamar things, car collecting things, traditional heists etc. Then casino heist which should provide ample fun time several times. When casino heist starts feeling boring do the cayo perico heist etc. Then there's of course the Doomsday which is fun but damn it can be hard at some points.

 

Personally I think you will get more fun out of the game that way.

I always run my sub up onto the beach, as far as the lifeguard hut, for the last 4 preps, to reduce flying time. If you park your vehicle on the front deck it will either stay there or worst case fall off/through onto the beach, not the sea. In my experience Pegasus vehicles will stay there too.

 

I'm 100% sparrow as a rule btw

400k? I really don't mean to be a jerk, but you're doing it wrong.  :)  Here are some quick tips that might help you:

 

1. Always alternate two approaches (recommend The Big Con and Silent & Sneaky). Alternating just two of them keeps it on hard mode and you get a payout bonus.

2. If you get cash in the vault during the scope-out mission, call Lester and cancel it, then start the heist again at your arcade. Gold and paintings pay far more than cash. AND: be sure to call Lester and cancel while still in the casino, just after you scoped the vault. This triggers a little glitch where the next time you pay for the heist, the scope-out is already done.

3. Don't overpay your help. Go with the 5% gunman, the 5% or 7% driver (5% should be good enough for two players, 7% for three players). For the hacker it depends what you're stealing and how many players you expect to have; for artwork I recommend 5% guy for three players or 7% for two, and Paige or Avi (9%/10%) for gold. Basically, the less you are paying these people, the more you get.

4. For the Big Con, ALWAYS do the Gruppe Sechs disguise. It's easiest by far of any approach. And as a bonus, you can do the elite challenge very easily with Gruppe Sechs and artwork as target.

5. Watch YouTube videos to learn the best way to escape undetected. There's a route everyone uses around the track. It'll save you getting shot up and losing money.

6. Last but definitely not least, you really want to do the heist with two players, three at most. Unlike Cayo Perico there is no real extra money when you have extra players; basically you're just cutting up the same pie into more slices. Two players can consistently get about a million dollars from gold or artwork. Three players can consistently get 700K. Four players will consistently get screwed.

I didn't know all this. But I don't find flying time to be problematic. lol Then again, I am not a speed runner. I like the idea of being able to park your vehicles on or near the sub run aground on the beach, though. Creative tactic. lol

Yeah, if he's getting $400K per heist, its because he is going in with 4 people instead of 2, and giving everyone an equal share. I am okay with the equal share part, but doing Casino Heists with more than 2 people, as you said later in this post, is probably not the way you want to go if you're trying to grind out money. Right now, any way you slice it, for maximum cash, solo Cayo Perico is king.

No argument there. But, speaking only for myself at least, I need to vary my activities in the game to avoid burnout. So when I'm in heist-and-grind mode, I usually am setting up a casino, an island, and sometimes prepping a Doomsday act as well. Then if my friends are on, we will do 2-3 heists in one go. And if they're not, I can run my Cayo Perico, then immediately start setting up a new one. I have never been able to just thump the same activity all day long, going back to the days when Rooftop Rumble was considered the only viable money-maker in the game. If you can find multiple things to do that pay pretty well, I highly recommend rotating between them, rather than focusing solely (and boringly) on the "best" one.

You make good points, @Nutduster. Certainly grinding can be boring. However, I interpreted his posts to mean that he wanted the fastest way to grind out money, not the most fun.

No I just suck at Casino Heists (and all heists I joined failed and for the most part not because of me - so I am not the only one having difficulties), but for money I do Perico Heist and after a few Casino Heists (2 times aggressive, one Gruppe 6) and owning a suite the Casino lost its mistery for me. I have a ready silent and sneaky setup (wanted to see the preps and risked to most likely be stuck with it forever) since weeks but can't force myself to start it, my buddy is not good at stealth, neither am I. I really like the arcade btw, it's a great man cave and I put my most badass (but rather useless) cars in its garage, I bought some nice games and like the crew lurking around in the basement so I don't regret having bought the arcade but it barely returned its invest.

 

However after joining some public Perico heists and seeing their miserable outcome (one was finally succesfull with only me surviving and finishing it and no extra loot at all with 4 players team) and remembering my first attempts it might not be everyone's taste, this guy might think about Perico heist how I think about Casino.

 Note that you make MUCH MUCH LESS money doing the Cayo heists with others. 

 

It depends. The most I got alone with Cayo Perico is 1.6M when I got lucky with main and secondary objectives. But I had to collect secondary targets outside the compound which takes time. Last time I run heist with friend he got 1.7M and I had 300K (15%). We grabbed gold in compound and finished heist in about 15 min. So doing Cayo with friend who knows how to play it right and don't mind to have 15% is beneficial. But of course doing heist alone still gets you good money and you don't have to wait for your friends to come online.

Just so you know, if you learn how to do them, Casino Heists are actually quite easy. But there are some things you have to remember. I always choose Gruppe Sechs as the entry for Big Con, and S&S can be a little trickier, at least in the beginning as you pass the metal detectors into the front Security Area. The hardest part for me going in with randoms or friends is that very few people seem to be able to help with the fingerprint hacker inside the vault. I can do most of the fingerprints, and with the right configuration in artwork, I can even do all of them while the other guy collects most of the paintings. But the Casino Finales, S&S and Big Con, are pretty easy if you can partner up with people who can show you how to do them properly. I never do the aggressive approach, by the way, because the final money payout is less.

You're 100% right. I keep forgetting about giving randos 15%, as I always calculate using 50/50 or even splits with more than two. But, yeah, if you can get a bunch of randos to just follow you around while you do all the heavy lifting, assuming they are n00bs, and you keep 85%, then I guess it would be worth it. I guess it would have to depend on how much the primary loot was worth, because you would get 85% of that instead of 100%, and if it was offset by two people carrying full bags of gold, where you are also getting 85% of that. Also, try to get your time under 15 minutes and don't get spotted. I had a lot of trouble with the Elite Challenge at first, but now its a given, I can get it every time, and usually finish in the 10's or 11's even with remote locations of Secondary Loot. But once you learn how to get Elite all the time, everyone in the Finale gets an extra $100K. Even the 15%'ers.

I honestly don't care about the Casino any longer and the agressive approach is the only one I actually like (if it weren't the preps), at the moment I'm trying to complete Doomsday Heist but not for money.

You can approximately calculate like that

 

1.5 mio solo on average, each further player means 500k extra, so

2.0 mio with two, means host earns the same or more with a 75% cut or more - 85/15 certainly is profitable

2.5 mio with three, means host earns the same or more with a 60% cut or more - 70/15/15 certainly is profitable

3.0 with four, 55/15/15/15 would not be worth the trouble and any other cut is less profitable than alone

 

2 players can actually be more profitable than alone especially if there is only bad loot outside the compound; a stash of gold, how much does it add to the back, I guess it is not enough for 4 players to fill their bags?

Bring me El BITCHbio!

 

 

If you're on PC, you can farm Cayo Perico finales solo and net an easy million in about 50 minutes (from start to finish + cooldown). If you get a good roll and know how you glitch those doors solo you can get 1.8 million during the finale (Pink Diamond + Safe + Gold + Elite Challenge + Hard Mode). If you have poor connection and the game mysteriously loses connection every time you finish the heist you can do non-stop finales and be set forever. Depending on how legit you want to go you can get a ton or a sh*tton. It's not even a question how ridiculous Cayo Perico is compared to the rest of the game's businesses

Actually the Deluxo works just as good as the Sparrow for Perico preps if not better, you can easily land it on the submarine and it handles better and easier than any helicopter. The Sparrow is overrated, it is good when the alternative is a Frogger but that's it, after all it's Grand Theft Auto not Grand Theft Helicopter.

Wrong. If you have the Sparrow, you can Spawn 2 Helikopters now directly in Front of you. So you can give the CEO Buzzard to your emloyee and you will use the Sparrow. Great QoL Addition!
