Best tip i have is 'be good' at the game. If you stay in a matchmaking playlist and come first most of the time you will earn loads of money.

Also remember to sell a luxury SUV once every in- game day to Los Santos Customs for a nice profit.

Another easy way for money. Find a mission that gives 5 or 9k cash. Find a few oyhers that can communicate. After the mission hit like and R2 fast. It'll restart the mission. That or set to solo and easy. The meth truck delivery You can skip the group of csrs and last bike if you go off road And don't follow the yellow path. Aduct is even easier.

They need to fix this BS thing though, where you lose $2000 every time someone kills you. Even if you're not carrying money, it takes it out of your bank.

Then it spawns you nearby and same shit happens.

Don't play with randomers. Its best to play with a group of friends so you know you don't have to worry about being killed.

You lose $2000 everytime someone kills u in a REAL match? Or do u lose the money when in free roam? I love killing fools in free roam since there's so much space, but if they lose $2000 even if it's in the bank, then now I feel awful. I just wanna cause a rampage back & forth without any real consequence to the other player's [banked] money.

I keep hearing that it is roughly 5% of your total worth...thus if you have more money...you lose more money. I hate it too, but I guess that is the nature of playing online. My hope is that once the newness of the game wears off people will calm down a bit and just play the game. I got jumped on the second I came out of the tutorial. I was lucky as hell to escape with my life and my measly bit of money that I had made. However, it was a GREAT way to be introduced to what I could expect for later.

Best tip I have is don't put too much effort in to earning money and leveling up your character. Just lost my level 17 character and $200,000. From now on I'm just going to create a temporary character on my second account and just have fun doing deathmatches and causing mayhem with my friends. Hope rockstar sorts out this bug ASAP.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   476d ago
Just lost mine too, but it's because i cant connect to the servers. As soon as i can, i imagine i will be able to see my character again. So best advice is NOT to make a new character because it will save over it. Sit tight and be patient and load up the online every now and again to see if you are re connected the the R* servers.

How did you get 200 k? I'm having a hard time maintaining 35 lol.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   476d ago
Stay in matchmaking playlists, coming first is obviously where the big bucks are. I take a luxury SUV (usually the one which resembles a Hummer H2) every in game day to Los Santos Customs, those 2 things together have made me 155k over the past few days.

What Lukas has already said. Also I try and avoid dying. Each death cost $2000 for me.

Has anyone lost huge amounts of money from dying in missions and death matches? Even if the money is in the bank.

Dude i just lost my lvl 28 character with roughly 300k...i had the 223k apt, a conquette and i just bought the cognescenti cabrio at like at 3am...only to wake up a few bours later for them to tell me to create another character. I really hope i can get all my stuff back or at least the money for it

John Marston should've been a playable character!

You can get him as a dad when making a character.

Dont care about your stats/money/character too much lol.

that would be my advice at the moment.
2 of my characters have now disappeared.
sucks because if this game ran smooth, it would be Epic beyond words.

1. dont be a dick.
2. look at rule 1.
BigPappaPump  +   476d ago
Violators of that rule will meet my uzi. Yeah, I said it.
darkronin229  +   476d ago
My recommendation: stay out of Deatmatches until you hit a decent level and unlock more weapons. Deatmatch is boring with just Uzis, pistols, and shotguns...
Lukas_Japonicus  +   476d ago
I got 26 kills in a team deathmatch using the pump action shotgun, they are awesome, but the uzi is weak as hell.

This is starting to tick me off now. I have created 4 characters and all of them got deleted. Online worked fine for two days and broke again today. TDM, DM, dont work properly, always timing out. Now cloud servers are down and I am getting the timed out, unavailable to locate session message again. And then there is the mechanic that anyone can kick you out for no reason at all. Ughhh, so disappointing.
objdadon  +   476d ago
Always hit the start button and go to the online tab, then scroll down to quit online before leaving! This will automatically save everything! Wait until it spawns you into a single player character then dashboard or whatever.this has worked since the beginning for me.
iceman06  +   476d ago
Probably the BEST and MOST IMPORTANT of the tips that I have seen!!!
Jeff257  +   476d ago
For the first day or so I certainly kept losing a character. My current one is level 19 and I don't get to play as many playlists with friends as I would like. I have managed to break 40K a few times but never get much over that. I looked at my stats and I have spent almost 80K on medical bills and that is just insane. They really do need to lessen the impact of what it costs when you get wasted. Maybe make it no penalty if you get wasted by another person but have it actually cost you money if you get wasted by the cops. Anyway I have had a lot of fun with it despite some people feeling like they have nothing better to do than constantly kill you for no reason.
