GTA 5: How to make money in Offline/Story Mode?
The open world of GTA 5 provides ample opportunity to make as much in-game money as possible. The most resourceful of players usually look for more opportunities to make quick cash. Completing story missions and progressing further in the game guarantee all the cash one can require for essentials as well as for other frivolous spending. However, with so many properties and vehicles available to buy, players will need a lot more money than that.
To help gamers earn extra cash in GTA 5, this article shares useful money-making tips they should know about. These methods work best in the game's offline or story mode, and one can easily make extra cash required whenever they need.
3 best ways to make extra money in GTA 5 Story Mode (Offline)
1) Lester's Assassination Mission
This is by far the best way to make a ton of cash without having to do much other than complete extra missions and correctly invest in the game's Stock Market. These assassination missions are given by Lester to Franklin, typically involving eliminating a top executive of a major corporation in the game. Killing these targets will directly affect the in-game Stock Market and players can easily earn money from it.
They need to invest in suitable stock market shares and sell them to earn a profit of 50%-80% on it. To take complete advantage of these assassination missions, one should first complete the last heist of the game - The Big Score.
2) Complete Random Encounters
Random Encounters, as the name suggests, appear seemingly randomly and give players a fair bit of cash. There are tons of random events waiting to happen in GTA 5 story mode; however, one of the highest-paying Random Encounters occurs when gamers roam around Franklin's house as the protagonist himself.
They will find a young kid who would've had his bike stolen and earn $100,000 worth of Animal Ark stocks by finding and returning the two-wheeler to him.
This is one of the easiest ways to make money in GTA 5 story mode as either Franklin or Michael if one hasn't completed The Jewel Store Job heist.
3) Hit Armored Trucks
Armored Truck Robberies are another way to earn money in GTA 5's story mode. Players can attack armored convoys, such as Stockades, roaming in Los Santos and rob them to make quick cash. These commercial vehicles spawn randomly in traffic, and players can either eliminate the guards or directly blow off their back doors.
Simply sticking a Sticky Bomb on the back of an armored van is enough to pop it wide open, allowing players to get a fair bit of cash in the game whenever needed.
Like the rest of the game's story mode, these will add up over time, eventually letting players collect a lot of money in the long run. One can also rob NPCs and earn a bit of cash, or rob a store while not doing a mission or heist.
