Breaking into GTA Online Stash Houses gives you the opportunity to swipe cash or supplies from a criminal den, though you'll first need to eliminate the armed dealers inside who will do anything to protect their business. Next, you have to search for the Stash House safe code hidden somewhere within the room, then grab the gear and escape the area before back up arrives to stop you. If you get away clean, then your reward is either GTA$30,000 bonus cash or extra supplies to top up one of your businesses in GTA Online, though this outcome is selected at random – unless you don't have any active businesses, in which case the cash is assured. If you're ready to kick down doors and get raiding, then here's how to find Stash Houses in GTA Online and open the safes inside.

Where are Stash Houses in GTA Online

GTA Online Stash Houses can appear in one of 25 potential locations around Los Santos or Blaine County, and you can find the current position by highlighting the name on your points of interest list or by spotting the purple house icon with a target on it, such as this one:

Head to the marked location, and you'll find a purple mission marker on the ground outside the entrance to the Stash House – there's a prompt to follow to kick the door down and break in, but you won't be able to do this if you have a wanted level so lose the cops first if you're being pursued.

Once inside the GTA Online Stash House, you'll need to head down the stairs and take out a number of armed dealers inside. Use the wall alongside the steps as cover and try to eliminate them one at a time, as if you rush straight into the basement then you'll get caught in a crossfire and will be quickly wasted.

After eliminating all of the dealers, you'll be prompted to search for the GTA Online Stash House safe code, so you can use that combination to steal the contents inside. This is a physical item you need to locate somewhere within the room, which is usually on top of a desk or pinned to a wall, though it will be a fairly obvious string of six digits once you spot it.

You'll need to memorise or write down the Stash House safe code to enter it manually, though the digits are often similar to make it easier to remember. Interact with the safe, turn the dial to enter the first two digits, then make sure you press right to select the next field as if you press the confirm button you'll get an immediate ERROR! message and have to start again. With all six numbers entered correctly you can confirm, open the door and grab the contents, then make for the exit. You're likely to run into reinforcements outside, so get out of the area sharpish to escape and find out if you've stolen cash or supplies for one of your businesses.

GTA Online Stash Houses can be raided once each real time day, so after completing a score you'll need to leave it until the next daily reset at 1am PT / 4am ET / 9am GMT before you can select another drug den to break into.
