GTA is one of the most popular game franchises with phenomenal settings, great commentary and one of the best written stories. Rockstar certainly knows how to keep its players hooked on the game, and involving money in the game is probably one of their best ploys. There’s plenty to do in the Grand Theft Auto universe where players can hustle and earn money.
GTA Online offers players several opportunities to earn money with different missions, heists, activities, etc. Players can use this money to buy properties, make various investments, stock up on weapons and ammo, and buy vehicles to get around Los Santos. Even though most of the content in the game focuses on cooperative play, there are still efficient and profitable ways for solo players to earn money.
Top 5 Missions to Earn Money Solo in GTA Online
1) Cayo Perico robbery
Heists are arguably the easiest way to earn money in GTA Online. Even though the initial costs of setting up heists are quite high, the rewards are worth it.
Cayo Perico Heist is one of the best heists for solo players. In this case, the protagonist is contacted by the son of a Mexican crime boss to steal problematic documents held by a high-profile drug lord.
Players must explore the island looking for points of interest, entry points to both the island and the victim’s compound, and any additional lucrative targets to rob. Each time players complete the heist solo, it can guarantee at least an in-game payout of $1,000,000.
2) Rumble on the roof
GTA Online has another lucrative mission for its solo players called Rooftop Rumble, given to them by Martin Madrazo. In a parking lot near the intersection of Adam’s Apple Boulevard and Little Bighorn Avenue in Mission Row, FIB agents and members of The Professionals process the documents Martin wants.
Players should go to the Adam’s Apple Boulevard entrance on the south side of the parking lot. They then just have to detonate it, grab the documents they transfer and take them to the person who entrusted the mission. Even though it is a difficult mission, it can help earn rewards of up to $20,000.
3) Diamonds are for Trevor
This GTA Online mission is given to players to help Trevor Philips, one of the main protagonist of GTA 5. Trevor alerts the crew that a shipment of diamonds is passing through Paleto Bay and the diamonds are vital for Trevor Philips Enterprises.
Players must eliminate armed members of Merryweather Security, steal diamonds, bring diamonds to the pier, board the boat, and take the boat to the landing stage.
The name of this mission is a parody of the James Bond movie Diamonds are forever. It can make around $15,540 in 8 minutes.
4) A Superyacht Life – Salvage
Superyacht Life – Salvage is a yacht mission in Grand Theft Auto Online introduced to the game as part of the Los Santos Summer Special update. Brendan Darcy, the captain of the players’ Galaxy Super Yacht, entrusts this mission which can be accomplished entirely solo.
In this mission, Brendan Darcy informs players that it is possible to salvage sunken cargo from a sunken supply ship that has sent out a distress call.
Players are asked to go underwater and retrieve seven sunken cargo containers. There’s a lot to do, keeping some limitations in mind. However, he has a decent payout of $16,250.
5) Talking about waste
Trash Talk is the last unlocked contact mission in GTA Online. It is assigned by Martin Madrazo and can also be played solo. The objective of this mission is to destroy the garbage trucks and get to a rival operation in El Burro Heights. There are five trucks parked there that need to be destroyed. Once the players have destroyed the trucks, the remaining members of the rival crew must be eliminated.
The team leader, who flees on foot, should also be eliminated. Eliminating him completes the mission. This is considered to be one of the most effective and highly paid assignments. He can pay $15,000 or more in four minutes.
GTA Online has a wide range of different activities that help players earn money and navigate their way through Los Santos.
