  • Armored Car Robberies

    When you see a blue dot on the map it means there is an armored car.

    If it’s parked and there is someone with a briefcase walking towards it, shoot that person and you’ll get $5,000 easy.

    Otherwise steal the armored car and break open the back doors (an easy way of doing this is to just drive it into the water). You can also simply plant sticky bombs to the back of the car to blow it open.


    ATM Robberies

    If you hang around ATMs and wait for people to withdraw cash before robbing them, they are much more likely to yield a decent chunk of change for your trouble.

    Easy $100,000 Mission

    Most people report getting this mission when they are playing as Franklin, but there is also reports of Michael receiving it too.

    Anyway when you’re playing (particularly as Franklin and free roaming around his house) a blue marker might pop up.

    If it does, investigate what’s going because it might be a kid telling you his bike got stolen.

    If it is, then get it back for him, because later he’ll text you saying he is a millionaire, and give $100,000!

    Infinite Ammu-nation Robberies

    Here’s a way to keep robbing Ammu-nation stores. It works because the money in Ammu-nation cash registers respawns very quickly!

    1. Head to an Ammu-nation store.
    2. Shoot the clerk from doorway.
    3. Empty the cash registers.
    4. Exit the store and walk about three car lengths away (you’ll get to know the correct distanc if you keep doing this…).
    5. Turn around and re-enter store – you’ll find that the money has re-spawned!
    6. Grab the cash, exit and repeat.

    Infinite Money #1

    Note: this has been patched and the character switching method will now only work if you have an un-patched copy of the game. However, if instead of switching characters you quick save and then reload your game the briefcase will re-spawn.

    You need to either swim or ideally drive a boat to the location shown in the map below in Paleto Bay, and then dive into the ocean and head to the very bottom.

    money-box-location

    You should see a sunken plane and to the right of it there will be a treasure box with $12,000 in it.

    Once you’ve got the box the first time, switch characters and then change back again to your original character. The box should have respawned! If it hasn’t try swimming further away and then doing the character switch back and forth.

    Repeat this as many times as you like.


    Infinite Money #2

    Note: this has been patched and the character switching method will now only work if you have an un-patched copy of the game. However, if instead of switching characters you quick save and then reload your game the briefcase will re-spawn.

    This infinite money hint operates on the same principles as the tip above except that the box contains $20,000!



    Infinite Money #3

    Note: this has been patched and the character switching method will now only work if you have an un-patched copy of the game. However, if instead of switching characters you quick save and then reload your game the briefcase will re-spawn.

    This infinite money hint operates on the same principles as the tip above except that the box contains $25,000! There is also an MG SMG Rifle located among the wreckage. The best way to find it is follow the long pole till you come to the end of it and on a slab that the wreckage is standing on you will find the gun. There is also an Armor vest which is located near some rocks near the wreckage (face the wreckage with the briefcase on your left side and you are facing the hull door, then on your right hand side is where the vest is located). Also Grenades are located right next to the wreckage (go to the side where the money is and go straight down and the grenade will be right there). I would not recommend trying to find the MG Rifle in the dark it is almost impossible best to wait till daytime to try and find it.

    Infinite Money #4

    Note: this has been patched and the character switching method will now only work if you have an un-patched copy of the game. However, if instead of switching characters you quick save and then reload your game the briefcase will re-spawn.

    This infinite money hint operates on the same principles as the tips above. The briefcase only contains $9,000 however there are several weapons hidden about in this section such as an UZI, Pump Action Shotgun, Sticky Bombs, Grenades Sniper Rifle & Carbine Assault Rifle. It will take at least 15 minutes to find all of them though. I would not recommend trying to find these in the dark as you will lose your bearings and miss some.

    Maximum Money Limit

    This more of a warning than anything else, particularly if you are using some of the stock tips found on this page!

    The maximum amount of money that any character can have in the game is $2,147,483,647.

    This number (2147483647) is the maximum value for a 32-bit signed integer in computing. This article explains it better than we can…

    If you go one dollar over this amount, your in-game money will drop to -2,147,483,646 (yes, negative)!

    You won’t be able to go over from stock investing (they won’t pay you out the full amount) or getting money dropped from pedestrians (they stop dropping money) but you can go over by getting money from a cash register for example.

    Robbing Any Store

    This will let you rob any store whatsoever that is open for business!

    Walk into the store (clothes, ammo, whatever…) far enough so that the door closes behind you. Then begin to walk out but stop half way so that your character is keep the door open with it swung outside (the door must be swung outside, not inside).

    This will allow you to equip a weapon! Point it at the store clerk and you should then be able to walk back into the store with it drawn and rob the joint.

    If you shoot the registers they should open up and money bags will appear.

    Extra tip: wait until the door closes fully and you’ll have more time until the cops show up. Cool huh?

    Update: If you shoot the shop door a few times before entering, you shouldn’t need to fuss around with keep it open as above.

    Save Sonny’s Daughter – $60K

    This explains how to do a “random encounter” in which you’ll receive $60,000.

    Head to the northern part of Paleto Bay (as shown in the map below) and you should find a random encounter where two guys were getting ready to kill a girl (the girl is actually mob boss “Sonny’s” daughter).

    paleto-bay

    Kill the guys and take the girl to where she wants to go (Vinewood).

    Then later you’ll get a call from her and $60,000 wired to your account.
