Store Any Non-premium Vehicle in Your Garage

Using this method you can store absolutely any non-premium vehicle in your garage. This includes any emergency vehicle whatsoever!

  1. Get the vehicle you want to store.
  2. Drive it head first to your garage until the nose of the vehicle touches the garage door.
  3. Exit the vehicle and leave the door still open (to do this tap X on the PS3 or A on the Xbox 360).
  4. Leave your garage.
  5. Run to your garage.
  6. Equip a weapon.
  7. Aim the weapon away from the vehicle/garage and then slowly walk backwards towards the vehicle.
  8. Keep walking until you hit the door you left open and then enter the vehicle while keeping your aim up.
  9. You can then proceed to drive into the garage and store the vehicle!

Stunt Jumps Map

The high resolution map below shows you all the locations of the stunt jumps in GTA V. Perfect for printing out!

Submarine in GTA Online


It is possible to get a submarine in GTA Online. If you are rank 34 you will definitely be able to get the spawn. You might be able to get the sub spawn from a lower level, but we know that it definitely works at level 34.

Anyway, head to the location shown in the image below to see where the submarine spawns. It’s in the docks where you rescue Tracy from the porn producers.


Unfortunately unlike in the story mode part of GTA V, when you exit the submarine into water you will not be given any scuba gear.

Sultan RS Locations

The Sultan RS is one of the most popular and sought after cars in Grand Theft Auto V for good reason – it looks good and handles great. However it’s not that easy to acquire one as you can’t simply purchase them. Instead you’ll need to find one (the initial car you need to find is actually the Karin Sultan) which you then upgrade into the Sultan RS.

The good news is that the car is possible to find in both story mode and GTA Online, just check out these videos: Single player | GTA Online (1, 2)

Sultan RS Spawning

The Sultan RS is very hard to find in GTA Online but here’s a good trick to maximize your chances of getting one.

They are known to spawn near Blaine County, right near the Los Santos Customs.

So what you need to do is check up and down the road that the LSC is off and if you don’t see one, then pull into the LSC and then head straight back out.

The forces all the parked cars to change and hopefully this time one of them will be the Sultan!

Survival Tip

Just a quick one here – if you are doing Survival then make sure you avoid the roof of the Boneyard.

Rockstar has decided that if you venture there will playing Survival then you’ll be kicked out of the match automatically and also receive a bad sport warning…

Survive a Bounty for Cash and RP

If you have a bounty placed on your head and last an entire in-game day without getting killed then not only will you receive RP, you’ll also get whatever the value of the bounty was. To do this easily just head to your apartment (provided you have one). If you don’t have one, then Trevor’s garage is a pretty good spot to defend from (and a lot more exciting to do so)!

Switch Locked Targets with Buzzard

This is a handy hint for those of you who love flying th Buzzard helicopter. If you tap L1 and R1 on the PS3 (LB and RB on the Xbox 360) with missiles equipped then you’ll switch between targets.

Switch to Free-Aim to Stop Getting Killed

If you find yourself getting killed a lot in GTA Online it’s either because you’re crap or otherwise in an auto-aim game. Auto-aim makes it incredibly easy for anyone to kill you, so simply change your aim type to “Free-Aim” and you’ll then be put with other “Free-Aimers” only. This had to be done under the Settings menu in the Story Mode part of GTA V. If you keep dying then keep playing and get better ;).

Tailgater Spawn Location

Head to the golf course parking lot and then just keep cycling through sessions of GTA Online until one spawns there. This is the best way to ensure you get one.

Taking Strippers Home

You need to talk into your headset to “flirt” with the strippers in GTA Online. Keep doing it and the flirt bar will fill up, which in turn will make the like bar increase. If the like bar increases to the max then you’ll be able to take the stripper home. But you need to have purchased an apartment to do this!

There’s also no bouncers in GTA Online so you can use the “touch” function as much as you want. In fact do this constantly because it will also raise the “like” meter.

If you fill up the “flirt” bar, it gives a huge portion to “like” bar. If the “like” bar fills up, the stripper will go home with you. You can only do this if you own an apartment.

Topless Women Mission

There’s actually a mission in GTA Online that involves topless women. Yes we already know that there is one for the Story Mode, but there being one Online is news. You can find the mission by going to the location indicated below.

Top Vehicles in Each Category

Below is a generally accepted list of the best vehicles in each category/type in GTA Online. If there is more than one we’ve listed both.

  • Super: Overflod Entity XF / Truffade Adder (Grotti Cheetah looks coolest though!)
  • Muscle: Bravado Gauntlet
  • Sedan: Tailgater / Schafter
  • Coupe: Oracle
  • SUV: Obey Rocoto
  • Motorbikes: Bati / Akuma
  • Off-road: BF Injection
  • Sports: Grotti Carbonizzare
  • Sport Classics: Monroe
  • Compacts: Blista

Trolling Car Thieves

You should know that you can control your vehicle privacy using the Quick Menu (Back on Xbox 360 / Select on PS3). What you do using this is let someone steal your car and then change the privacy to no-one as they are driving off. They will then die as they’re thrown from the car whilst taking off! Just make sure you don’t hit eject – otherwise the car will slow to a stop to let them out. You need to just change the setting so no-one can be in your car.

Turbo Start

Like a lot of racing games, if you press the accellerator button at exactly the same time as the word “Go” then you’ll get a nice little boost of speed off the start line.


Make sure you complete all the tutorials before you start free roaming/playing normally in GTA Online. This means you need to do the following: race with Lamar, rob a convenience store, drug delivery, choose and customize personal car and Last Team Standing mission.

The full extent of GTA Online will not be unlocked without first completing the tutorials.

Unlock Car Locks

If you hold Back (Xbox 360) or Select (PS3) on your control and scroll down to vehicle access you can choose to open up your car to fellow Crew members, friends or anyone. This will let people jump into your car with you!

Ultimate Jobs Information Spreadsheet

In GTA Online we’re sure that you know that you earn Respect Points (RP) and cash by doing jobs. And if you want know what jobs are best for your circumstances, and what jobs might open up in the future, then check out this spreadsheet.

It contains all the information you’ll need including which contact gives you the job, the minimum level requirement, the cash and approximate RP rewards and how many players you’ll need. Some helpful job tips are also included.

Unique Body Modifications List for Vehicles

Thanks to MassSpectacular we have the following list of vehicles and body modifications that are unique to those vehicles – that is, you can’t make these mods to any other type of vehicle, only the one listed!


Upgrading Property

If you decide to upgrade your property (garage or apartment) then your currently held property will automatically be sold for you and be put towards the purchase price of your new place. You get about of the initial purchase price.

Views from All High-End Apartments

So you’ve finally earned/saved/scrapped together enough cash in GTA Online to be able to afford one of the high-end apartments and of course you want one with a nice view. That’s where this video comes in. It will show you the full views of every single premium apartment purchasable in GTA Online. So before you drop that hard-earned cash on a place to crash, take a look at the video and make sure you choose the crib with the best view!

Use a Mask

Use a mask before you commit a crime because it will enable you to easily lose one star once the cops start chasing you.

Simply wait until they can’t see you (after the crime has been done and they’re in pursuit) and then remove the mask. One wanted level star should drop off. If you are only on one star it will have no effect however.

Wear Hat and Mask at Same Time

  1. Be wearing the hat you want near a car.
  2. Open your inventory using the quick menu and while it’s open enter the car.
  3. While in the car put on the mask and then exit.
  4. You should be wearing both the mask and the hat!

Wind Down Windows

Broken car windows are the bane of any gangster’s life and you can avoid them in GTA V! Here’s how: when you are the driver of a car, just press RT (Xbox 360) / R2 (PS3) to roll down your passenger’s window or LB (Xbox 360) / L1 (PS3) to roll down your own window. See how easy that was?
