The GTA Online best paying missions for making lots of money

GTA Online best paying missions

Try these GTA Online best paying missions to get yourself some serious cash and improve the situation in your in-game bank account, as they offer a stable and, crucially, repeatable income for completing them. If you've spent any time in GTA Online then you'll know how important it is to earn as much money as you can. There are always new weapons and vehicles arriving with a high purchase price to acquire them, and some of the criminal enterprise routes are completely inaccessible until you have sufficient funds to invest in the necessary property and equipment to get started.

There are already a number of known methods for how to make money fast in GTA Online, from stealing cars to executing high-stakes heists, but the focus here is on co-op missions that pay particularly well. The rewards for completing these get better as you work your way up through the ranks and the GTA Online best paying missions unlock, and it's also worth following announcements on Rockstar’s Newswire (opens in new tab) to see if any missions are currently handing out additional cash rewards. Here are some of the GTA Online best paying missions that you should try out if you're in need of cash.

Trash Talk

GTA Online best paying missions

You, and a team of up to six, are ordered to destroy four garbage trucks owned by a rival gang. Each is guarded by several heavily armed NPCs, and once destroyed you’ll have to hunt down the other members of the gang and their crew boss. Trash Talk, after unlocking at rank 81, is one of the best paying and most efficient money-earning missions in GTA Online. It can net you $15,000 or more in four minutes - if you have a talented enough team.

Pier Pressure

It’s always fun to spend a day at the pier. Pier Pressure, which unlocks at rank 6, requires you to crash a meeting under the pier in Del Perro, take out all involved, and return a package of meth to the person who assigned the mission to you. It’s an easy mission to tackle for any of number of players (up to 4), and can earn you a quick $15,000. If anything, it’s a nice change of pace from the concrete city.

Rooftop Rumble

If you’re looking for a solo challenge then Rooftop Rumble, which unlocks at rank 75, might be more your speed. It's a difficult mission that can net you over $20,000 if you take your time completing it - simply running up the clock usually nets you more cash for missions. All you have to do is blow up a meeting between the FIB and the Professionals, steal the documents they were exchanging, and deliver them to the the person that assigned you the mission.

Blow Up

Unlocking at rank 12, Blow Up is another early mission that can get you tens of thousands of dollars by completing it on your own. All you have to do is destroy a bunch of vehicles at a dealership, lose the cops, and then return to the dealership. A smart way to go about the carnage is to move all the vehicles closer together before using explosives, as this will make it easier to blow them up and lessen the likelihood of the cops showing up.

Be sure to deposit any cash you earn into the bank straight away, since other players might be looking for an easy pay-day by killing you. You can do the same and seek out players that just completed a mission, but be ready to become a target if you keep causing problems for other players.
