With the new Grand Theft Auto Online Update released last week, the game just got easier after Rockstar added more ways to earn money that don’t involve tearing your hair and making nasty jokes. But a major update like this for an already huge game can be overwhelming.
But don’t worry, we have some useful tips for both old and even seasoned players. GTA Online Veterinarians who want a quick update on what’s new and how Criminal enterprise updated do.
Players come back, find out what you got
If you haven’t played yet GTA Online in a few months (or years) you may be back in a world filled with things that you may or may not own. And you may not remember everything you have, so take a moment to figure that out. Become the CEO and/or head of the bike club and then check the map to see which symbols appear in your color. This will give you a quick grasp of your empire.
When you get to your nightclub, run
If you own a nightclub (or a casino penthouse) here’s some good news: You can now run in these places. This is especially useful for those who want to go upstairs to the office to manage the business’s inventory and supplies. No more slowly walking across the dance floor to work. You can also run in the casino! Now you can spin the wheel faster.
Keep track of new and easy earning opportunities
With this new update you may find new ways to earn or increase your daily passive income. For example, if you own a bunker and are producing inventory for sale, you will sometimes receive notices of surplus weapons that can be sold to the local Ammunition Authority for additional money.
Another example is at a nightclub, where noisy patrons can be tossed around. Not only is it fun, but it also increases your club’s reputation, which in turn increases its daily profits. As usual, these opportunities will come through your phone.
Take advantage of session invite only
Perhaps the biggest and best change in this update is the new ability for players to essentially complete any type of business-related activity in a private, invite-only session. You no longer have to worry about random scammers blowing up your hard earned potions right before you can sell them all for a ton of money. Instead, join a new invite-only session and peacefully distribute all the drugs, guns and more you want, for free grieving guys or jet motorcycle trolls.
Solo players still need to be careful when selling
While being able to complete sales and other business-related tasks in solo sessions is great, Rockstar hasn’t changed the actual quests or how they work. So be careful how big your sales will be, as too many crates or guns can create large, multi-vehicle deliveries that solo players can’t do in a period of time. the limit you have. If you really want to sell a large amount of illegal goods, be sure to call a friend or two to help you complete your transaction.
Oh and remember, a solo session with no players, but NPCs will still show up and attack you for most missions and deliveries.
Yes, Main Control Terminal also works in solo sessions
The Master Control Terminal, or MCT, is a $1.7 million supercomputer added in the Diamond Casino Heist Update. It’s an upgrade you can buy for your video game, which is used as a front for heist planning.
With the MCT, players can buy supplies, start businesses, buy upgrades for locations, and start selling quests all from one convenient (and expensive…). And luckily this works in solo sessions after this update. Note: Terrorbyte, which has some functionality similar to MCT, does not work in single player sessions.
Play new ULP paper trail missions
While the payoff for these six tasks isn’t as high as it should be — considering all the work you end up doing for the U.S. government — it’s still a great breakthrough compared to GTA Online. Quests have an interesting mix of classics GTA Online fights and some exciting super spy moments. Think GTA Online meeting Mission Impossible. Oh and don’t read too much about the last mission until after you play it. Trust me…
Do not buy new precision rifles
No matter if you are jumping online to do some new quest or to make money selling drugs or whatever, do not buy new precision rifles added in this update. It sounds cool, and it sounds like it could be useful as a semi-automatic DMR-like mid-range sniper. However, its accuracy is not impressive, its damage output is terrible, it has no upgrades to speak of, and it costs 450k dollars.
And if you’re looking for the teased M16-like service rifle, it’s sadly not out yet. Although data researchers have discovered the scavenger hunt you will need to unlock it, so expect Rockstar to add it in the near future.
When fighting, quickly eat some snacks
If you start getting shot in a gunfight and take some damage, don’t hide and fumble with the interactive menu to eat some candies. Instead, use the new hotkey that appears when you open the weapon wheel. You’ll also find a hotkey to replace your armor when you open the weapon wheel. For now, just remember you still need to change your snacks and armor after you’ve used it.
You can now turn off chat on your PC
Ahhhh… You’re finally out of that horrible place.
