GTA 5 Online Patch 1.22 Has An Unlimited Money Glitch

One Angry Gamer "In patch 1.22 Rockstar seems to have missed a rather important glitch in the game: an unlimited money glitch. How does it work? Well, one user made a quick video detailing how it works, and if you can listen through the thick accent obscuring his enunciation, you just might come out of it a heck of a lot richer than when you went in."

The story is too old to be commented.

I'd rather just accumulate money through playing the game.

Dee_911082d ago

I don't know why people do this anyway.From my what I heard, when rockstar fix the glitch they take all the money back.. and then some.

Revolver_X_1082d ago

R* will take the money, but not assets. Just buy your 3 houses, fill it up with fancy cars. As long as you spend it, they cant take it. This what they did last time.

Starbucks_Fan1082d ago

I would agree, but I've had so many error issues with this game when connecting to matches that it takes a long time to make a lot of money. My NAT type is open btw.

I'll probably take advantage of this later today. Even if I lose the money, I'll be maxing my cars and sell them when the glitch is fixed.

dreamed1081d ago (Edited 1081d ago )

Agreed...i cant even play public games online without get disconnected due to"unknown network error" every 2mins....weird it dosnt happen on 360 only x1???.

But my biggest peeve wit gtao is the downtime between games.. you gotta be in load screens 50% of the time whilst the game playing.

Skate-AK1081d ago

Never have been disconnected on PS4. I get the long loading screens though.

SuperBlur1082d ago

R* will catch on and reset your money

SnakeCQC1082d ago

If they didn't charge for the currency they wouldn't care.

OculusRift1082d ago

As you lamers complaining.. Think about this, GTA used to payout a good amount of money for you to play comfortably in game.. But then rockstar cut the payouts to below minimum and raised the prices on things, so the things you can really afford are ammunition and cheap weak guns. No one wants to play an MMO type grind fest, playing dozens of missions for small payouts and always getting and wrecked online because someone has better gear than you do because they bought those stupid shark cards. Rock* made it so that anything worth buying on GTAO you can't steal and have to pay for. Those things I mentioned all carry ridiculously high price tags... effectively forcing you to go on by a shark card if you don't want to spend 72 real hours grinding. I welcome these money glitches wholeheartedly.

TL;DR:
Rockstar made made everything the game so expensive and mission payouts so low that you have to buy shark cards if you don't want to spend days grinding for scraps.

Oschino19071082d ago (Edited 1082d ago )

I have not met a single person on the game yet that bought a shark card.

I have also made almost 20 million dollars with out cheating and having time to play plenty of other games.

They have literally hundreds of jobs to do and dozens of other ways to make money just free roaming.

Tempest3171082d ago

@OculusRift the only thing that you have to really grind for are the aircraft/tanks/super cars...my brother and I habe gone through the missions finding which ones pay more, and its possible to get 100k an hour through missions. Youre really blowimg this thing out of proportion, or you're incredibly lazy. Even having to grind out 1.5 million for something sweet doesnt take 72 irl hours, unless youre doing it by robbing convenience stores

GarrusVakarian1082d ago (Edited 1082d ago )

You sound like someone who has never played GTAO. The prices for things aren't anywhere near expensive enough to warrant a purchase of GTA$. The only reason I can think of for anyone needing to buy GTA$ is if they have little time to play videogames in general, or are impatient, lazy gamers who don't want to put in the work to earn things.

I've played for around 9 days now on PS4 and not once have I bought GTA$. I own a Buzzard attack chopper, worth around 1.1 mil, almost every gun in the game with max ammo, and countless expensive vehicles. I also restock my ammo and armour fully after each mission. All by simply playing the game. An hour-long session doing nothing but missions gives me around 100k-200k. And that's not "grinding", that's simply playing the game. I hate grinding in games, I think it boring as hell and goes completely against the point of playing videogames for me (for fun), but not once have I ever felt that earning money in GTAO was a grind. I play the game with friends, have tons of fun, and watch the dollars stack up as a by-product of said fun.

TL;DR - You have no idea what you're talking about.

OculusRift1082d ago (Edited 1082d ago )

When reading your comment and the guy above you.. Reading in everyone one of your sentences was "me me me me me and me" and you also say it took you over over a couple of hours to earn 100k. Compared to if you play GTA online before rockstar started raising prices and lowering the payout for each mission you would've made that 100k playing one or two 10 minute missions. You say it doesn't take long right but again you say you had to play for a couple of hours just earn money to buy the things I spoke about my original comment. It's almost as if you guys didn't read my comment properly and read something that you thought I said and made a just comment out of your ass. Lucas, I don't think you know what grinding is. You can head back to NeoGaf and continue to defend developers for their poor decisions. FFS, "gamers" these days just sit back and take anything. You probably pre-order games too.

TL;DR - You have no idea what you're talking about.

GarrusVakarian1082d ago (Edited 1082d ago )

@OculusRift

" and you also say it took you over over a couple of hours to earn 100k"

I didn't say that. I said an *hour-long* session banks me between 100-200k doing nothing but missions. Take the time to read people's comments properly before using them against someone.

"Compared to if you play GTA online before rockstar started raising prices and lowering the payout for each mission you would've made that 100k playing one or two 10 minute missions."

Hahaha. No. You would not have. Not even close. You have no idea what you're talking about. I've been playing GTAO since day-one on PS3, and never have you been given payouts large enough to earn $100k from two missions, let along one mission. The highest paying missions give around $20-23k. Have you ever even played the online portion of the game you're so hell-bent on shitting on? I don't think you have. Anyone who has played online for a while would know that there are NO missions that would give a 100k pay-out for 10 minutes work. Not now, not ever. Even before Rockstar decreased the pay-outs, the highest paying mission gave around $25k.

"You say it doesn't take long right but again you say you had to play for a couple of hours just earn money to buy the things I spoke about my original comment."

And how exactly is this a negative?...Isn't this the ENTIRE point of buying the game...to play it? How on earth is a couple of hours a long time? Within that time you could earn more than enough money to buy yourself a decent vehicle and a good gun with max ammo, and still have tons of money left over. How else are you supposed to acquire these things? Shark Cards? But I thought you were against them? Lol. On the one hand you're complaining about shark cards, and then on the other you're using the fact that it takes a couple of hours of play-time to acquire things you mentioned as a negative. Make up you're mind here, man. You complain about gamers "these days", but then whine that it takes a couple of hours playing the game to buy things. You sound like the epitome of what's wrong with gamers "these days".

" You can head back to NeoGaf and continue to defend developers for their poor decisions. FFS, "gamers" these days just sit back and take anything. You probably pre-order games too. "

LMFAO....creepy much? How the hell do you know I post on NeoGAF? You creepy-ass stalker. Why the hell are you even making this personal? Are you incapable of constructing arguments without resorting to such childish tactics?

And for the record, I haven't once defended Rockstar for their use of Shark Cards on NoeGAF, and never will, because I disagree entirely with the concept of them. But that isn't the argument I'm making here, the argument I'm making is that shark cards aren't necessary to acquire any in-game items, and they can all be acquired through general play. Which is what you buy the game for, right?

TL;DR - You REALLY don't know what you're talking about. And you're a creepy stalker.

OculusRift1082d ago (Edited 1082d ago )

Creepy stalker? You must really think you're the only one on NeoGaf. You post everywhere, so please get over yourself. You must have really thought someone was gonna really read that essay you spent over an hour typing out. Lmfao, I stand by my points and you can continue defend developers doing the wrong things. You can continue to on the creepy advanced wheel of autism in your deluded world you see no wrong.. welcome to my ignore list.

GarrusVakarian1082d ago (Edited 1082d ago )

"You must really think you're the only one on NeoGaf"

Nope. But I do know that I'm not the one bitterly bringing up other people's internet browsing habits as a means of attempting to strengthen their weak-ass argument. LOL.

"You must have really thought someone was gonna really read that essay you spent over an hour typing out."

You aren't reading it because you know I'm right. And reading it would mean you would have to face how wrong you are, and you ego couldn't take that. So you stick your head in the sand instead. LOL.

"I stand by my points"

Of course you do, because you're nothing but a stubborn child. You know you're wrong, you know you're arguing against someone who has much more experience playing GTAO than you and can call you out on your BS, so you resort to sticking your fingers in your ears and saying "lalala, not listening, lalala, I stand by what I said, even if what I said is a load of horseshit, because that's better than admitting I'm wrong, lalala". LOL.

Ironically, if you weren't so stubborn and actually read my comment, you would have seen that I said I don't agree with the concept of shark cards. Oh well. I hope your ignore list has some comfortable seats. I have a pretty painful case of hemorrhoids.

Edit: WAIT...I just noticed something. If you didn't read my comment, how did you know I called you a creepy stalker? LMAO. You clearly DID read my long-ass comment, but my words filled you with so much rage at the realization you were wrong, you lied and said you didn't read my comment as a way to try and...hurt my feelings or something? Hahahaha. Jesus. A creepy stalker, full of shit, AND a weirdo. Sucks to be you.

And I bet I'm not even on your ignore list really, am I? I bet you're reading this comment right now. You just said that so you won't have to reply to me anymore, because it hurts too much every time I reply back. Amirite? Yeah, I'm definitely right. XD

Oh well, it's been nice proving you wrong. We should do this again sometime. I'm going to go now and play some GTAO. Can't wait to earn those GTA dollars in a completely legitimate and non-grinding fashion without the use of shark cards.

jetlian1082d ago

point is lukas people dont want to grind the same missions 50 times to get 1 vehicle. Im a level 27-28 still not at 1.7 million.

All my friends do is 20k or so missions. They clearly making the shark cards an option

Revolver_X_1081d ago

Defend all you like. R* has adjusted the online into a grind fest. With open ports it takes 5+ minutes to get into a lobby. 70% of the time Im alone in the lobby, or ppl massively drop from it. Im not alone in this aspect either. Plus they removed the replay button. So you cant replay the same mission quickly to maximize rp and money per hour. Its a grind. One I gave up on already. As far as money, idc. I just need to get to lvl 100 for the platinum. Unless, a good rp glitch becomes available, I will not get it. GTAO is just not entertaining enough.

GarrusVakarian1081d ago (Edited 1081d ago )

@jetlian

"point is lukas people dont want to grind the same missions 50 times to get 1 vehicle. Im a level 27-28 still not at 1.7 million. "

But you don't have to grind. This is what I'm saying also. The higher you rank up the more missions you unlock. I'm level 94 (?) now and there are still a few missions that I have yet to play. You absolutely DO NOT need to do "the same missions over and over again". Once you complete a mission, it goes into a playlist that you can access via the pause menu at any time for you to host or join. And I'm not sure wtf you've been doing, but you should have wayyyyyy more money than that at your level.

"All my friends do is 20k or so missions. They clearly making the shark cards an option "

I never said shark cards weren't an option. Of course they're an option. I'm arguing that they aren't necessary to buy in-game items. People act like the inclusion of them means that they're necessary, which is bullshit. There's no doubt that Rockstar jacked up the prices of in-game purchasable while also decreasing the pay-out from missions, that's just a fact, and a shitty thing to do, but in no way has that made shark cards necessary to obtain *anything* in-game.

GarrusVakarian1081d ago (Edited 1081d ago )

@Revolver

"Defend all you like. "

But I'm not defending....what the hell is wrong with you people? Why do you reply without reading comments properly? It's so tiring. I explicitly say more than once than I don't agree with the concept of shark cards. I'm not defending anything, I'm making an argument that shark cards aren't necessary to acquire any in-game purchase, which is true. Simply playing the game, which is what you're supposed to do, will bank you enough money to buy anything you want.

"With open ports it takes 5+ minutes to get into a lobby."

I play the game every single day and it never takes more than a minute to get into a free-roam lobby, and it takes less than 10 seconds to join a mission lobby from the phone menu/game menu. You're either lying, or you have some really bad network issues.

"So you cant replay the same mission quickly to maximize rp and money per hour. Its a grind"

LOL...wait a second, you're whining that we can't replay the same mission over and over again, and then calling not being able to do that a grind? Are you even aware of what grinding is and how much you just contradicted yourself in two sentences?? Grinding would be replaying the same thing over and over again for maximum money and RP, you imbecile. Doing *different* missions over and over again, of which thee are many, isn't grinding, it's playing the game.

All three of you people have no idea what you're talking about, and shouldn't be allowed onto the Internet unsupervised.

Clown_Syndr0me1081d ago

Every single one of your comments smashes it!

Only thing I partially disagree with is the network issues. Mine works great, as yours does. However I have a friend who has a lot of problems, his lobbies are always empty and when he joins mine it's only a matter of time until we're all kicked and he's alone again.
Not sure what the issue is as every other game seems to be just fine.

huh? Missions payout so much better than when they did when GTA Online first launched.

JackBNimble1081d ago

Funny that you get disagrees.

I have been playing GTA online for over a year, the missions use to pay out much less then they do now, and most missions pay out thousands more then they use to. It's only been recently (a month or two) that the pay outs for the missions has increased.

Swiftcricket1081d ago

As someone who played at original launch, I like the payouts now. They're MUCH better than they used to be, not worse. Unless they raised them a LOT at some point then lowered them to a still better point than originally. People used to think it was great money making 9k on a mission over and over and now lots of missions pay 20k. Plus we don't lose thousands upon death. Money is fine in GTAO now, no shark cards needed. I stay above 1 million casually playing without even really trying.

I'd be careful with these - Rockstar seems to catch most of these shenanigans pretty quick - http://www.vg247.com/2014/0...
