If you specifically want help making money, check out this guide for all our tips, or this one for our top 3 best ways to make as much money as possible in GTA Online.
This is page 3 of our hints and tips for Grand Theft Auto Online. If you have any hints or tips of your own, feel free to send them in!
Free-Aim the Sniper
In order to free-aim with the sniper file you need to hold either RT (Xbox 360) or R2 (PS3) half way down and move it from there. This should let you free-aim.
Free Annis Elegy RH8
When you sign up to Rockstar Social Club you're given a free shotgun to use in the game. Link your Xbox Live or Playstation Network account and you'll get a free set of wheels - the Annis Elegy RH8. The Elegy is only given to you when you purchase your first property though.
Free Car Repair
There's already lots of way to get your car repaired for free in GTA Online but here's another. Simply go to the GTA Online menu and press "Find New Session." It's that easy!
Free Cosmetic Car Upgrades
This will only work if you haven’t done the first mission for Simeon yet. Basically when you do, you’ll receive a whole bunch of free (cosmetic) upgrades to whatever car you’ve got at that time, and it’s a one-time deal. So before you take the first mission from him, search for a vehicle that you’d like to upgrade and be in it when you start the mission.
The only caveat is that, just like when you try to sell vehicles to LS Customs, this won’t work for premium/sports cars like the Obey 9F or for motorbikes. Something like the Karin Sultan would probably get some decent upgrades (or any other car along those lines…).
While this car garage is free, you'll need to be level before you can use it. To get the free garage, simply go to the website for Dynasty 8 on your cell phone and search through it. There will be garages listed there and one of them will be free - if you bought the collector's edition, that is. The free garage has 2 slots.
If you want a free shotgun head to Ammu-nation and scroll towards the right, next to the rocket launcher. You should see a sawed-off-shotgun that is free. Grab it! Note you'll need to buy ammo though...
Free Vehicle Repair
To get your car or motorbike repaired for free just go into any mission whatsoever. As long as you get into the lobby then your vehicle will be repaired for you automatically, free of charge.
Gang War Locations Map
Did you know that there's gang wars going on in GTA Online and that you can actually watch them fight and participate? You just need to be in the right spot at the right time to see everything kick off. What's more, there's actually 41 different wars going on and somebody took the time to make a nice little map so that you know exactly where to go at what time! Thanks to ttech10 for the map!
Get a Fighter Jet
Just watch the video below to see how to steal a military fighter jet in GTA Online. Basically you need a fast car and then launch yourself over the fence of the military base using a small hill.
Golf Game Guide
We would have love to have produced something like this ourselves, but to be honest the author of this guide cannot be beaten. If you want to do well at the golf game in GTA V then you need to check out this guide it's an absolute must read!
Grab Cargo Drops with Cargobob
Once you hit level 20 and speak to Ron for the first time in GTA Online then cargo drops will be unlocked for you. Usually they are guarded and you'll need to fight to get the cargo, but if you first grab a Cargobob (like from the Merryweather people at the Port) then you'll be able to simply hook the cargo and take it off somewhere else to open up.
Grass on Fire
If you throw a molotov cocktail onto a grassed area then the entire area will eventually catch fire as these pictures show (thanks Darknessfallls). If you want to see where the molotovs are located then check out these maps and guides.
Hang Off the Side of Vehicles
In order to hang off the side of vehicles you need to hold LT (Xbox 360) / L2 (PS3) and then double tap Y (Xbox 360) / Triangle (PS3) when you're next to the door of the car. In terms of positioning you should be in the middle of the front and back doors. For this to work, the car needs to be fully occupied.
GTA BOOM now has its own community discussion forum! Chat directly with our guide creators, ask questions, & get tips and advice.
If the vehicle has roof racks and side steps by the doors you should be able to do it. For example this will work on the Granger SUV.
Helicopter Spawn Location
Head to the location indicated on the map below to find where a helicopter is known to spawn. If you want to get the Wanted Level, there is also one at the Airport.
Helicopter Spawning and Levels
Head to the location below and depending on what level you are, a different helicopter will spawn as follows:
- Levels 0-16: Maverick
- Levels 17-24: Frogger
- Levels 25-36: Cargobob
- Levels 37-41: Annihilator
- Level 42+: Buzzard
To get up hills more quickly just jump-spam. This is much faster than trying to run up them.
Hitching Rides on Fire Trucks
Yes, this is possible and works just like it does for any other vehicle.
Simply got up to the vehicle (a fire truck in this case) and press Y/Triangle/F and you should jump on board!
Hunger Games GTA Edition
You can stage your very own Hunger Games in Grand Theft Auto Online, all from the comfort of your own apartment!
Simply make sure you have a safe house that you can watch TV on and put a bounty on someone. The more money you are willing to put up the more entertaining this is likely to be.
Then use your TV to spectate the player that the bounty is on and enjoy!
Thanks to weirdo_wayne for the idea
Instant Heals During Missions
Buy a load of Meteorite and/or Ego Chaser bars before every mission from a convenience store and have your action command (L3 + R3/Caps Lock) linked to eat snack. This is a great way to restore health and avoid dying while on missions.
You can also skip the lengthy snack eating animation by going into over and eating a snack from the interaction menu or your weapon wheel.
The cost of insuring your first car is free (done at Los Santos Customs), but after that it will cost $1,000 per vehicle. If you have an insured car that gets destroyed, then you need to call the insurance company via your phone contacts.
You can make yourself visible again by re-entering Los Santos Customs or by dying. Also be aware that police can still find you!
Jetski Cave Location
If you haven't visited the cave at the location shown below then you really need to. It is valuable in both the story mode and GTA Online parts of the game. Note only can you hide from the cops there (and escape a 4 star wanted level for example) but there is two jetskis and a jetmax inside.
