Grand Theft Auto 5 Online Cheats, Tips and Hints

Grand Theft Auto 5 Online cheats, unlockables, tips, and hints collection. This page offers you the best working grand theft auto 5 online Cheats, Secrets, and Exploits. Check back here often for the latest rule-bending tips and tricks. The Cheat Codes that work in GTA V single-player are disabled in GTA Online. This applies to both open world and Job segments of the game.

Survive a Bounty Attack In Grand Theft Auto 5 Online

When in game you have the option to switch to Passive Mode, which allows you to go about your business without fear of being shot by other players. If you do this and a Bounty is placed on you, people will still hunt you, but their bullets will do no harm. This method cannot be done if the Bounty is placed first.

Grand Theft Auto 5 Online Cheats – How to Steal Helicopters, Jets

You can access the LS Airport runways via the stairs that lead to the location of the Flight School in the Story Mode. Just jump over the rail/wall on the left of the stairs past the fence and drop down behind it. You’ll have no Wanted Level and access to the runway and either one or two Maverick helicopters. You do not get any Wanted Level for stealing these four-man Choppers.

Once you hit level 30, you can call for a helicopter pick up from Merryweather for $1,000. Much like a taxi, you can get in the back and it will fly you to your marked waypoint. Much like a taxi too, you can shoot the helicopter’s pilot and jack the vehicle to be used however you wish. This is available on missions too and a useful way to off-set poor job mission start points (ie. 5 miles away from mission objective).

You can then use a helicopter to parachute into Ft. Zancudo and steal a P-996 Lazer jet.

How to Get a Vapid Dominator with Free Bulletproof Tires

For this glitch you wil need at least 2 people and 1 one of them must be able to get the mission from Lester called (Cops capacity). During this mission you will receive a Vapid Dominator equipped with bulletproof tires, Complete the objectives until you have to drive to Lester’s compound to end the mission. Let the other person go there alone while you remain seated in the Dominator. When the mission is over you will spawn back into the game you will still have possesion of the Dominator. Drive to the nearest Los Santo Customs and purchase a tracker and insurance for the car and its yours, with the free bulletproof tires upgrade.

Making the Most of Your First Car

When you create a new character in GTA Online, as part of the creation process Simeon will phone you to offer you some free customisation. This is part of the process to create your first Personal Vehicle, which will remain your only “property” until level 5.

To make the most of this, try to pick a car that has the best possible value for street-jacked cars, and/or a variety of available modifications. As well as the tracker and insurance, you will be able to equip this vehicle (at no cost to yourself) with custom wheels, numberplates, and potentially more items as well that would normally be unavailable to the player at this point in the game. Cars with Grille, Hood, Chassis, and/or Spoiler modifications have been found to offer the first level of customisation for free at this point – in some cases, this is 15 or more levels before they would normally be purchasable. Players also have access to all available paints & plate styles for free, potentially saving them many thousands of dollars, and can also equip custom wheels – be warned, although the game implies that you can purchase a lot of different wheels, only those actually fitted will be remembered in future visits.

This can be a quick source of easy money, as once your car has been customised the Mod Shops become available for selling to. Customised vehicles sell for more than uncustomised ones, and as you’ve paid nothing for the car it’s not unreasonable to sell the new vehicle for way more than the price of adding a tracker & insurance to another, and pocket the difference to spend on guns & ammo, clothes, etc.

Grand Theft Auto 5 Online Cheats, Tips and Hints

Adding Blaine County Sheriff SUV to Your Online Garage

Blaine County Sheriff SUV is currently the only know law enforcement vehicle you can save in your online garage.

To first obtain the vehicle you must obtain a 4 star wanted level (in Blaine County) and the 4 door sheriff SUVs should start showing up. The easiest way to do this is with a friend. Have your friend obtain 4 stars as far north in Blaine County as possible, Paleto Bay works best for this since the vehicle can only be modified in Paleto Bay. Once you friend has obtained 4 stars keep your eyes open for a black with white suv that reads “sheriff” in gold lettering on the side. You will then need to find a way to steal the vehicle. I’ve personally found it easiest if your friend is in an large vehicle such as the military Barracks and pins an SUV to a wall. If you steal it and obtain a wanted level the best thing to do is call Lester to remove your wanted level ($500). Then you may either go to your garage to add a tracker or I would highly recommend going to Beaker’s garage to obtain a tracker and insurance.

Some things to note before you begin and facts about the vehicle. The Sheriff SUV by default has more armor than the civilian Granger. The Sheriff SUV can withstand more frontal impacts than the Granger due to the metal off-road bumper. It holds 8 people, 1 driver, 3 passengers and 4 hanging on the step rails outside the vehicle. People hanging on the outside step rails have access to use heavy machine guns and assault rifles. The only place you can mod the vehicle is at Beeker’s garage in Paleto Bay (most northern part of the map). Also notable, paint is a free modification with the exception of chrome and crew.

Grand Theft Auto 5 Online Cheats – John Marston as special dad

First, create an account at the Rockstar Games Social Club, and link it to your PSN account. When creating a character in GTA Online, highlight “Dad’s Father” under the “Heritage” option, and press Triangle to select John Marston from Red Dead Redemption as a “Special Dad” for your created character.

Patch note

Some of the glitches/tricks below only work on the unpatched version of GTA Online.

Grand Theft Auto 5 Online Duplicating vehicles

This glitch will allow you to duplicate another player’s vehicle, which you can then either sell or keep for yourself. First, request a job from Gerald while you are in another player’s vehicle. Use the other player’s vehicle for the mission, and make sure you are driving it when the mission ends. You should then enter free roam mode, and still be in the vehicle. You can now go to Los Santos Customs and try selling the vehicle. If you cannot sell it at that point, add a tracker to it, and try going back later to sell it. If you want to keep it, add a tracker to it, and insure it.

Grand Theft Auto 5 Online Cheats – Infinite money

First, buy the Bati801 motorbike. Next, pause the game, go to the “Options” tab, and set “Spawn Location” to “Last Location”. Take the Bati801 to the Los Santos Customs car shop. Customize the Bati801 as much as possible so it greatly increases in value. Then, sell the Bati801. Immediately after selling the Bati801, pause the game, go to the “Online” tab, and select “Swap Character”. When the character selection screen appears, choose the same character you were just using to sell the Bati801. You should then spawn back on the Bati801 you just sold, right outside the Los Santos Customs car shop, and still have the money you received for selling it. Repeat this process as many times as desired to get an unlimited amount of money. You can make $5 million an hour using this glitch. Note: This glitch works on Patch 1.04.

Grand Theft Auto 5 Online Easy money

Create an invite only game session. Then, go to any store, and rob it. Punch the clerk, and they will run off. Take all the money in the cash register. Next, enter the Start menu, and go to PlayStation Store, as you would if you were going to purchase in-game money. As soon as PlayStation Store loads, exit it, and you will spawn back in the same store at the exact same spot, except the world will have refreshed. You can then punch the clerk again, and take the money from the cash register. Repeat this process as many times as desired. You can get approximately $100,000 an hour using this glitch.

To earn some money easily at the beginning of GTA Online without alerting the police, steal a good common car in Vinewood. Then, go to a Los Santos Customs car shop. You can sell stolen cars to car shops, but most car shops will not accept luxury sports cars, as they will say they are too hot. You will get approximately $9,000 to $10,000 for a good common car that does not have much damage. Once you have earned some money, deposit it at an ATM to avoid potentially losing it to other players or if you die. Once you have earned enough money using this method, buy some body armor and weapon customization to do heists and robberies to earn more money. It is recommended you purchase a silencer for your weapon when you have enough money so you can avoid heat from the cops.

Once you reach Rank 45, the “Mixed Up With Coke” mission will be unlocked. The rewards for completing this mission are $18,000 and 3,500 RP. It can take approximately 15 minutes to complete the mission the first few times, but once you figure it out, it can be completed with three other players in approximately one minute. Note: One player will need to be at Rank 45 to access the mission, as well as one player at Rank 19 or higher and two players at Rank 9 or higher to do the mission.

[su_youtube url=””]

Once you reach Rank 75, the “Rooftop Rumble” mission will be unlocked from a guy named Martin Madrazo (he leads a Mexican narcotic gang in the Los Santos area). To complete the mission, you basically need to kill five people. It is possible to earn up to $2 million and 400K RP per hour by continuing to efficiently complete the mission. Note: You can also do the mission if you are at a lower rank and get invited by someone at Rank 75 or higher. If you are at a lower rank, make sure to use sticky bombs instead of the grenade launcher, and kill any survivors with a rifle.

Easy robberies and XP

Enter the restricted area at the Los Santos International Airport through the fence (jump it or drive through it) near the flight school to find three helicopters. Use the helicopters to easily escape the police after robbing stores. However, make sure the helicopter is not parked where the cashier can shoot you. Robbing and escaping the cops will also earn you easy XP. You will usually get $1,000 to $8,000 for each robbery.

Easy lower wanted level

Use a mask before committing a crime because it will enable you to easily lose one star from your wanted level once the police start chasing you. Wait until the cops cannot see you after the crime has been committed and they are pursuing you, then remove the mask. One wanted level star should immediately disappear. However, it will not have an effect if you only have one wanted level star.

Fast traveling

To quickly travel to a location across the map, select a race that is nearby to where you want to go. Then, go to the race, enter the lobby, and drop out of it. You should then spawn at the start of the race location in free roam mode.

Play in North Yankton

Start the “Prologue” mission while offline by selecting it from the “Missions” menu. Continue until the part where you exit the vault heist and the police arrive. Pause the game, then have a friend invite you into a multiplayer session. North Yankton will now appear on the online map, floating over the southeast area of the map. Use a helicopter to reach it.

Start team deathmatch in Cargo with another player. Once the match begins, go to the melee weapons on the map to find crowbars. Grab a crowbar, and complete the team deathmatch to be able to permanently keep the crowbar.

Black Mask appearance

Reach Rank 80, then go to the mask store. Purchase the Black Skull mask, then go to a clothing store. Talk to the cashier to browse the outfits. Select “Business Smart”, and purchase “The Discoteque”. You will now look similar to Black Mask from Batman: Arkham Origins.
