Who uses a second character?

I have, but hardly use it really. Was more out of curiosity than anything, but now and then I'll plod about with it.

 

If I could use my 2nd character by buying lots more cars and my 1st character could call my 2nd to get access to them, I'd use it far more and spend millions in a heartbeat on more vehicles. Would gladly become skint to do that. :)

Another thing I just found is the awards reset on the second character. So you could do the Casino missions when its double on the second character and get all those cash bonuses again.

CRAZY AL WARD

I too, have a second character

She's mostly just a Basic character (This means No businesses OR annoying stuff like that)

 

IF i could, i would make a 3rd OR 4th gta online Character

Yes, I use 2 characters.

The first one is human, the second one is an Apache helicopter

The first one is for grinding, the second is for casual playing, and I try my best to keep it low level.

 

edit: wrong thread

I missed the transfer window from ps3 to ps4. So went from level 8000 and billions (nothing to spend it on but it was pleasing looking at the zeros spread across the screen) to level 1 and peniless

 

Aint no way I’m doing it again. 
 

one character is plenty enough for me

Another key point on awards resetting: If you want to do All in order for heists (or Loyalty, CM?) you can do it on one character. then if you have a different set of mates who need help with a heist, you can do that on your main character without screwing up the award streak.

Yeah on two different ps4.

 

My main has been retired more or less. My second is a lowlevel who keeps the streets of ls as clean as possible.

i dont do it because of the muggers(i retired from public sessions years ago) i started doing it as a savings method and it stuck with me.

 

im less likely to go on a spending spree when i have to switch characters to get the money 😂

 

Me and my wife play on the same account so we always withdraw all our money to keep it separate. We don't play in public sessions often, but it would be really nice to just bank it.

I was planning to use it to start over in GTA Online with a woman, but I don't like the idea of both characters sharing the same bank account.

You can put your real money as cash on main character though. And start grind with little to nothing on your second char.

I might have to do this because I keep spending things on my second character and its mean to be purely for business use.

I have a female secondary primarily to be able to look at whatever new clothes/female-specific goodies that come with new updates. She also serves as extra garage space, and it’s also nice to have a character where I’m not getting billed $30k a day in utilities because the only things she owns is a nice flat and garages.

For a limited time I had one secondary character in another account where I would roleplay as a new player that would be living a biker style all the way up in Paleto Bay and would only got to Los Santos if he truly needed to.

 

But then the NPC phone spam started to royally piss me off and mess with my immersion.

 

Then along came the auto aim lock on bug with the Casino update which made the OP Mk2 even more annoying, and since my character was essentially defenseless against it, I stopped playing with him altogether.

 

I know the bug is patched today but honestly, I don't have the will and drive to do that again even if R* gets rid of the phone spam entirely.

Does anyone know if you get the cash bonuses for things like Solomon movie props or Navy revolver if you already found them all on your first character?

I started one last year because I had so much money and knew there would be so ittle in future to spend it on, I felt I had wasted my time making it all unless I blew lots of it. So she has everything the dude has including all the garages full, weapons and research and all the rest of it.

 

Be warned, replicating ain't cheap. I lost count at around 300 million, but to be fair, a lot of that was buying cars I aready owned on matey but wanted to move to her to make some space. There was also an incident with 30 F1 cars, 5 GTOs, 5 RSXs and 50 motocycles during that time on my dude, So I re-bought every muscle, SUV, Sports Classic, Luxury and some other stuff for her then sold them on my dude. I should have my personal plate back sometime in 2030.

 

One of my favourite aspects of having done it is, it feels like a safe haven if you will. Like he is in GTA and doing business, racing, fighting and generally taking care of business, and she is where I go when I want to cruise, chill, explore etc. She also looks so cute in a pair of dungarees. I assigned him as racer and tycoon, and her as mechanic, pit crew and, my personal favourite, wearing a Christie Brinkley-esque dress from Billy Joel's Uptown Girl video and getting in a Rolls and going for a cruise, or an old soprts car with a sun hat on. Say what you like about Rockstar, and we do, but if you want to immerse, you gotta love the scope they give you to do it.

 

He is 1936 and she is 196. I'm going to try to get 2000 and 200 on the same day. No real reason, just like symmetry.
