Earning quick money
The best way to earn money in GTA 5 is debatable, and there are several ways. You could try your luck with the either of the game’s expansive stock markets, rob an armored vehicle, or if you’re desperate, hold up a convenience store for petty cash. If you need a little extra cash between mission-based heists, there are ways to do a bit of gold farming. gta5car.com brings you a complete guide to all the hidden packages locations and to give you the winning edge in the crime-infested Los Santos.
Discover Hidden Packages for Quick Money
There is no best way to earn quick money in GTA 5 than exploring hidden packages strewn across several earmarked locations around Los Santos and Blaine County.
$12,000 Money Trick
Travel to the northwest coast of Blaine County and find hidden packages scattered underwater to the north off the southern coast of Paleto Bay. Head north to the position suggested in the map above and dive into the water. Find the flashing hidden package containing a stash of money worth $12,000 at the tail end of the sunken airplane. Grab the stash of money and switch to another character briefly. Then switch back to the original character and voila… the package re-spawns at the same location. This will also replenish your oxygen supply and help increase your lung capacity. If you often run out of air underwater, then you should purchase the Sonar Collections in the northwest of Los Santos to get hold of Zodiak submarine (sub), which automatically equips a scuba tank whenever you drive the sub. Rinse and repeat the process whenever you need loads of cash to buy expensive property or fast cars around Los Santos.
$23,000 Money Trick
Once you purchase Sonar Collectibles and gain access to Zodiak submarine, you could begin the side-mission to collect nuclear waste on the ocean floor. Each attempt at securing nuclear waste fetches you $23,000 and with 30 such collectibles scattered around the ocean, you stand a chance of earning $690,000 in quick time.
$25,000 Money Trick
Find another big stash of money worth $25,000 in the region adjoining Pacific Bluffs. To get there, head to the west coast of Los Santos and swim across the west coast to the position highlighted in the map above. The package should be resting near the sunken ship. Just repeat the character switching process like in previous money trick and return to grab loads of cash at the package re-spawn location.
