GTA Online tips - how to rank up fast, make money and surviv

Your comments on our articles.

GTA 5's multiplayer is a hazardous place. Come prepared.

I played GTA Online for around 120 minutes last night. Of those 120 minutes, perhaps 20 consisted of swearing at server disconnects, or gesticulating in tears at Rockstar's equally non-functional support page. I spent another 10 minutes in an eerie sort of trance, contemplating my own punctured corpse while the game tried and failed to "load players".... read more

You can also deposit money by accessing the bank's webpage on your phone.

Good spot, I've added that to the piece.

I understand why they did it, but I find it ridiculous you can make deposits on your phone. Completely eliminates the need for ATM's.

Here's one - upon pulling off a successful holdup, the person who grabbed the takings can divvy out the pay as they see fit - just hold Back and then go to Inventory and Cash to select who to give the cut to and how much percent, say if a random person has helped you out with a getaway.

If you're feeling especially altruistic, you can even give friends/teammates your spare ammo if they're running low. I think it's Y while holding your weapon to drop some ammo on the ground. (Not certain off the top of my head, might be B but you can definitely do it.)

Couldn't get on myself, so I spent the time waiting for the game to fail to load browsing for tips on my laptop. Here's a few, if you enjoy a bit of grind:

Apparently the Gallivanter Baller gives you the biggest payout at Los Santos Customs. You have to wait 20+ minutes before dropping each one off, but you get 9 grand when you do. This is what it looks like: http://i.imgur.com/cBpcaYE.png

Gerald's "Meth'd Up" mission is infinitely repeatable, needs 2 people and takes 3-5 mins for 5k.

"What I do is load into a solo GTAO instance (Load story, start>Online>Play Online>Solo) Then head north of LS to that strip of road where there is a chop shop a shop you can hold up and a clothing store right next to each other, sell a car at the chop shop, rob the store, get 2 stars, drive 100 meters into the desert, watch the cops, get 200 points for evasion, and repeat. Every 20 or so, try and sell a car, get 5-9k per car every 20, and 1.5k every 3-4 minutes."

It seems as though the vote to kick system has changed dramatically, it only takes one person to click on the kick button for a person to be kicked. I don't know whether it's a bug with the online launch but if you get kicked 3 times, for doing nothing wrong, you get a bad sport warning.

STAY ALIVE is a good one, you can bank all the money you want however the hospital bill still comes out of your bank. Your hard earned cash could go very very fast if (as I have found out) 1 random child kills you, the game spawns you near him he then kills you again and again and again. Had some help off some fellow OXM crew members though and he soon got the message and left!

Cheers SmokelessBig L and Gashey J Life savers!!

Just checked - seems to be B to drop ammo, and Y to drop the entire gun.

After getting my character data wiped last night for the second time, i'm now about to start my third, and, in a desperate attempt to stop my character looking like a cross between Pete Burns and a stygian witch, hit the randomize button numerous times and discovered I can choose 'John Marston' as my grandad! Happy days :)

"Crewmates are generally less likely to pull a grenade launcher on you for absolutely no reason" unless they are part of the OXM Crew....

Your last tip is kind of right and kind of wrong.

Stores can be safe zones but you can be killed when you're inside a store.

You can shot from outside the store to open the doors then kill the person inside the store. For example if you're buying guns at the ammo store I could stand outside and shoot through the doors and kill you. How ever if you hide near the shooting range around the corner you can't be hit from outside.
