Curious how to refine your time in GTA Online? Here's some pointers that'll help you out!

If you're wondering how to make money in GTA Online almost a decade after it's initial release, don't worry! There are plenty of methods of building stacks of cash in the Rockstar Games Action Adventure game. Regardless if you're a tried and tested criminal, or a newbie hopping in with the latest port, a lucrative future awaits you in GTA Online.

Grand Theft Auto 5 is one of the greatest games ever made, and you'll find it on all deserving formats; it began on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 before getting the upgrade treatment for release on the PS5 and Xbox Series X/S

The game also comes with GTA Online, a massive, sprawling online city that allows you to run wild through its streets, taking part in missions, races, elaborate heists and a multitude of other criminal activities. Packed with vehicles to hoard, you can build your own empire, running illegal businesses, employing other players and living large in mansions and yachts. It really is an epic crime drama.

The Diamond Casino is now open, complete with all-new activities. GTA Online players can now pick up the Übermacht Zion Classic car and earn bonuses on Casino Work and VIP/CEO Work Missions this week.

The new Survival challenges include fending off a Ballas attack on Grove Street, a battle against Avon Hertz and their goons in the Nuclear Bunker, and more. The new King of the Hill mode is live and double GTA$ and RP just for taking part.

And so, we present the most complete guide to GTA 5 Online you'll find. From cheats and tips in the single-player game to advice for becoming a CEO, earning massive amounts of cash for pulling off bank robberies, buying the best cars and having your fingers in as many lucrative pies as possible. Own the streets, buddy.

GTA Online guide: earn cash fast, double RP, rank up quickly

You'll need plenty of RP and cash quick if you want to experience everything GTA Online has to offer.

You need cash and RP, fast cars, slick clothes, an apartment and a quick trigger finger if you're going to carve out a lucrative online career. We're here for you.

GTA Online Heists guides

Heists are a great way of making money quick, if you don't mind a bit of action.

Heists can only be unlocked by the player in order. This means you'll have to work through them systematically if you want to be the guy in charge. Otherwise, you can accept any heist and take part, but you're only ever going to be the dogsbody, never the one who takes the biggest cut. Here are guides to all five heists and all the rewards you get for completing them.

  • The Fleeca Job

  • The Fleeca Job is your intro to heists. It only takes two of you, and the payout isn't half bad. Let's get some practice in.

  • The Prison Break

  • The prison break is one of the most popular heists, as you break and out of the maximum security prison with human cargo and a daring escape.

  • The Humane Labs Raid

  • EMPs, 4-wheel drives, a VTOL jet, the Valkyrie chopper and a tricky stealth mission. Things are about to get tough.

  • Series A Funding

  • Raid a massive yacht and steal a tonne of drugs while under heavy fire. The bullets fly but the payoff is well worth it.

  • The Pacific Standard

  • Stock up on ammo and armour for the biggest bank job yet. The money's fantastic if you can survive long enough to spend it.

  • Heists: make the most money with Special Bonuses and Elite Challenges

  • All of the above jobs pay out a lot more money when you complete special objectives. This is how to make those heists really work for you.

  • The Diamond Casino Heist

  • The Diamond Casino heist is one of the more recent additions to the game heist-wise, and is a great way to bring in a fat stack of cash. Here's how to get it started!

  • The Diamond Casino Heist setup and crew
