Right off the bat, players must forget about buying expensive cars and things of that sort. Here are a few essential items players should spend their money on:

  2. Special Carbine
  3. Armour for missions and Heists
  4. Snacks

Gamers can unlock the discounted price on the Armored Kuruma by playing through the Fleeca Job. They can do that by joining another player's Heist or hosting one as a Leader by buying a High-End Apartment.

Contact Missions ensure that players can ease themselves into it by doing the missions first on lower difficulties then eventually moving up for higher payouts. Gerald's Contact Missions are a great way to make quick and easy bucks in GTA Online right from the start.

#2 - Essential Properties


The next part of the process sees players investing in properties to ensure regular income in GTA Online. These are few properties that should be easy to come by and guarantee great returns:

  1. High-End Apartments (For the initial Heists)
  2. MC Clubhouse (Clubhouse and the MC Business is an excellent way to make passive income in GTA Online)

This should be enough to ensure they make a quick million in the game right off the bat. The key is to do Contact Missions and Heists in GTA Online and have enough money to start hosting Heists as a Leader.

After which, players must ensure steady passive income through businesses available for the MC. All of this combined will provide them with a solid foundation in GTA Online.
