Go to location 1 and location 2 in the Pacific Ocean on the western side of the map with two different characters (Franklin and Michael are used in this example). There are hidden packages in each location worth $34,000 total, and they respawn each time you switch between characters. Once one character is in the first spot, move the second character to the other location. Then, swim down to the hidden package and collect it, switch to the other character, swim down to the other hidden package and collect it, then switch back to the first character. Repeat this process as many times as desired to get an unlimited amount of money. You can get $1 million approximately every 13 minutes. Each time you switch between characters, your oxygen will also be fully restored. This money exploit can be used with any two hidden packages in the ocean. Note: Do not quick save the game while doing this money exploit, or it will start your character back at his house. Additionally, this glitch only works on the unpatched version of Grand Theft Auto 5. You can delete all patches for GTA 5 by using the "Clear hard drive cache" code for the Xbox 360.
Swim or take a boat or jet ski to the following waypoint location in Paleto Bay (far north-western area). Before diving to the money on the ocean floor, quick save the game (just in case you drown). There is a hidden package to the right of the sunken plane wing in this area that gives you $12,000 when collected. Grab the money, and swim back up to the surface. Save the game again, then reload the saved game, and the money will have respawned. Repeat this process as many times as desired to get an unlimited amount of money. Additionally, another method to getting the money to respawn is switching to a different character, and then switching back to the original character. Your character will also have full oxygen after switching between characters. Note: It may be hard to locate the hidden package at first. The closer you get to the hidden package, the more shiny and obvious it will become. Additionally, this glitch only works on the unpatched version of Grand Theft Auto 5. You can delete all patches for GTA 5 by using the "Clear hard drive cache" code for the Xbox 360.Infinite grenade launchers
Go to the location shown on the map in the video below. Enter the cave, and dive to the bottom to get a grenade launcher. Then, swim back to the surface, save the game, and reload the saved game. The grenade launcher will have respawned. Repeat this process as many times as desired.
Go under the bridge at the following location in North Chumash to find a cache of five Molotov cocktails. To get unlimited Molotov cocktails, collect the Molotov cocktails, save the game, and reload the saved game. The Molotov cocktails will have respawned. Repeat this process as many times as desired.Duplicating vehicles
Customize any car as desired, then switch to a different character, drive by the character in the customized car, and hang out with him. Then, get out of your vehicle, and drive their customized car. When you return with the customized car after hanging out with the other character, there will be another of the same customized car. Get out of the car, and take the duplicated customized car. Then, switch back to the other character, and take the original customized car.
Place the vehicle you want to duplicate inside that character's garage, leave the garage, and save the game. Then, switch to the character you want to receive the duplicated car, and travel to the garage of the previous character where you saved the car. Switch back to the original character who owns the garage, and take the car out of it. Get out of the car, and have both characters meet each other, then immediately switch to the other character, get in the vehicle, and save it in that character's garage. The original character now must pay a small $250 fine to the impound lot to get the vehicle back, but it will be duplicated. Both characters will now own the same vehicle. Repeat this as many times as desired. It is recommended you use this exploit with the Truffade Adder (Bugatti Veyron) super car, as it is worth $1 million. -From: Austin LinEasy full health
When you are low on health and not playing a mission, switch to a different character, and then immediately switch back to have your health fully restored.Easy money
While driving around, look for blue dots to appear on the map, which indicate armored cars. Try to shoot the driver with the briefcase before he reaches the armored car to quickly get the money ($5,000). If you are having problems opening an armored car, drive it into the water, and the back doors will instantly open.
While playing as Franklin and free roaming around his house, a blue marker may appear on the screen. If it does, investigate what is going because it might be a kid telling you his bike got stolen. If you get the bike back for him, later in the game he will text you saying he is a millionaire, and give you $100,000.
Successfully complete the final heist in Story mode to earn approximately $25 million for each character. Then, invest that money in the stock market to make a lot more money.Easy money in stock market
To make easy money in the stock market, invest in a company, and then target the competing company. When you do something in Grand Theft Auto 5 that affects a company (like robbing a bank or gas station, or destroying a plane), its stock price will decrease by a certain amount depending on the quantity of damage you caused to the company (the more problems you cause the company, the lower the stock price will go). Thus, buy stock in the competing company that you are going to target. For example, buy stock in AirEmu, then shoot down some FlyUS planes to make their stock price decrease and AirEmu's stock price increase. Another method is shooting down some planes of an airline, then buying a bunch of stock in that airline after their stock decreases. Next, shoot down some planes of the competing airline, and the stock price for the airline you bought should increase. The same can be done with oil derricks belonging to RON Oil or LTD Oil.
Buy some stock in AugeryInsurance (AUG), then damage and destroy a bunch of cars, and the stock price should increase.
When a mission objective includes destroying a corporation's asset or reputation, make sure you buy stock in their competitor before completing the objective.
Listen to talk radio stations to hear about stock tips. When you hear about a stock tip, immediately invest in that company to make a profit.
While playing as as Franklin, you can do assassination missions for Lester. Before completing one of the assassination missions below, switch to each character, and invest all your money in the listed company. That company will benefit from the assassination you are about to perform, and your stock in that company will greatly increase in value. Note: Do not sell your stocks right after the assassinations. Wait for three days after each assassination, and then sell them. You should make well over 75% profit off the stock. To make a lot of money, wait until you have accumulated a large amount of money at the end of the game before completing the assassination missions so you can earn a lot more in profits off the stocks.
- Assassination 1 (The Hotel): BetaPharmaceuticals (BAWSAQ stock)
- Assassination 2 (The Multi Target): Debonaire Cigarettes (LCN stock); sell Debonaire after the mission, then purchase Redwood (LCN)
- Assassination 3 (The Vice): Fruit (BAWSAQ stock)
- Assassination 4 (The Bus): Vapid (BAWSAQ stock)
- Assassination 5 (The Construction): GoldCoast (LCN stock)
While a mission is active, go to the gun shop, and buy all of the upgrades for every available weapon and some grenade. Once you have obtained all of the upgrades, leave the gun shop, and use one of the grenades to kill yourself. This will cause the mission to fail, and you will start the mission over. When the mission restarts, you will have all of your money back from the purchases in the gun shop. Go back to the gun store, and all the weapon upgrades will still have a checkmark. Repeat this process when new weapons become available. Note: This glitch only works on the unpatched version of Grand Theft Auto 5. You can delete all patches for GTA 5 by using the "Clear hard drive cache" code for the Xbox 360.Free vehicle repair
While in a damaged vehicle, switch to a different character, and then immediately switch back to have that vehicle completely repaired.
To repair any damaged vehicle for free, simply save the game, then reload the saved game, and the vehicle will be completely repaired.
Drive to your purchased garage, and store the damaged vehicle. Then, exit the garage with another vehicle, re-enter it, and take your previously damaged vehicle. It will now be completely fixed.
While playing as Franklin, you will eventually have the option to purchase a Los Santos Customs shop. Once you purchase it, all repairs and upgrades to vehicles will be free.Buying properties for free
To purchase any property for free, use one of the following tricks depending on whether it will provide income or not. Note: Using this glitch may permanently prevent you from doing certain side missions that are only activated when you purchase property the normal way. You also must have enough money to purchase the desired property to use this exploit/glitch. Additionally, this glitch only works on the unpatched version of Grand Theft Auto 5. You can delete all patches for GTA 5 by using the "Clear hard drive cache" code for the Xbox 360.
For properties that do not provide an income, position your vehicle in front of the sign that enables you to purchase it. Get out of the vehicle, buy the property, and then immediately get back into your car.
For properties that do provide an income, go up to the sign that allows you to purchase the property. Press Right on the D-pad to go to the confirm purchase prompt. Press Right on the D-pad again to confirm the purchase, then immediately pause the game. Replay any mission from the replay mission menu (ideally a short mission), and complete the mission. You will then spawn back at the property. You should now own the purchased property, and still have the money you originally spent purchasing the property.
To easily level up the strength and shooting skill stats to 100 in approximately ten minutes, use the following trick. First, buy a lot of pistol ammunition, and then find a bus. Jump on top of the bus, and stomp on it while it is moving. Make sure to move back and forth or you will fall off after stomping. Once your strength is at 100, shoot the middle of the bus until your shooting skill is at 100. The bus should be able to take all the bullets without being destroyed.Easy max stealth skill
For every minute you spend walking in Stealth mode, you will earn one point towards the stealth skill. Thus, put a rubberband around both Analog-sticks on your controller to automatically walk around while in Stealth mode. Then, leave the game for approximately 100 minutes, and your stealth skill stat should be maxed out.Easy races
During the countdown sequence in a race, hold LB while unarmed to start driving. Use this glitch to get a head start and finish in first place more easily.Easy exotic/super car
Go to the following location in Rockford Hills to find an exotic/super car. An exotic/super car will always spawn in this location. The Truffade Adder (Bugatti Veyron) super car is the most frequent to spawn at this location. It is also the fastest car in GTA V.Easy Cheetah, Infernus, and Voltic car spawn location
Go to the following location. The Coil Voltic, Grotti Infernus, Pegassi Cheetah, and other exotic/super cars often spawn at that location.Getting the Canins Mesa
The Canins Mesa is a rare and unique off-road vehicle that cannot be purchased in GTA V. You are not actually supposed to be able to acquire the vehicle. Use the following trick to own the vehicle. During "The Wrap Up" mission, you will be given access to a Canins Mesa to escape a shootout. However, do not drive it on the road. Take a left down the hill to another road. There will be a helicopter chasing you, but you should be able to outrun it. You need to reach Michael's four vehicle garage. Park the Canins Mesa in the garage, and then use a different vehicle to complete "The Wrap Up" mission. Once the Canins Mesa has been saved, you can also modify it.Getting the mini-gun
Go to Fort Zancudo military base. After entering the base, go right at the first intersection, then go to the radio tower (tall) building on the right side of the street. Enter the base of the building, turn left, and go through the double doors straight down the hallway to use the stairs. Go to the top floor. The mini-gun is inside a room on the top floor. Once you collect the mini-gun, it will be saved to your inventory, even if you die. The mini-gun is extremely powerful. You can purchase more ammunition for it at Ammu-Nation stores. Note: When you enter the military base, you will encounter a lot of resistance. However, once you enter the radio tower building, you will be safe from the tanks and gunfire.Getting scuba gear
You cannot carry scuba gear around like it is an item. When you jump out of either the submarine or Zodiak Boat (Dinghy) into water, you will automatically be wearing the scuba gear. The following are the locations of the submarine and Zodiak Boat (Dinghy):
Submarine: When you purchase the "Sonar Collections Dock" property, there will be a submarine that spawns at that dock which you can use. Additionally, after completing "The Merryweather Heist" (Offshore Option) mission, a submarine will begin spawning at Sandy Shores Airfield. Pick it up using a Cargobob air transport plane (press Right on the D-pad), and then drop it in the ocean where you want to use it.
Zodiak Boat (Dinghy): Go to the west side of Elysian Island to find a Dinghy at the Port of Los Santos. You can find another one by going to Miriam Turner Overpass, and searching next to the barge. There is also one on the southwest side of the Post Op depository.
To unlock Packie McReary to add to your crew for heists, simply visit him at the following location in Los Santos to get him to join your crew.Unlocking sea and street races
To do the Speedophile (sea) races, you must have completed the "Hood Safari" mission and have a Speedophile Seashark jet ski as your vehicle. To do the street racing, you must be playing as Franklin and have completed the "Shift Work" Strangers and Freaks mission.Parachute location
The parachute can be found at the beginning of the game next to the cable car on top of Mount Chiliad in the far north-western area of the map.Full map
Click here to view a full map of San Andreas in Grand Theft Auto V.All collectible locations
Click here to view a full map in GTA V with all 180 collectibles (letter scraps, nuclear waste barrels, spaceship parts, stunt jumps, and Strangers and Freaks missions) and 12 hidden packages. 11 of the 12 hidden packages are in the ocean. You will get between $8,000 and $25,000 for each package collected. You get $150,000 for collecting all 12 hidden packages. The packages also respawn each time you switch characters or save the game, allowing you to get as much money as desired by placing two characters at hidden package locations and continuing to switch between them.Stealing a fighter jet
Go to Fort Zancudo with Franklin, and break into the base using a fast car (planes are likely to get shot down). Enter the base through the gate that runs off the main highway on the west side of the map. Immediately before you drive through the gates of the base, use Franklin's special ability to slow down time as long as possible. This will stop your wanted level from increasing to four stars for as long as it is activated, which gives you a little more time to reach the fighter jet and steal it. Try to steal a fighter jet with an open cockpit inside or right outside a hangar, as it will reduce the amount of time it takes to get the jet off the ground. It is recommended you do not try to steal a jet that is out in the open.Stealing a private jet
Take a vehicle to Los Santos International Airport, and drive through the gates to reach the runway. Then, quickly look for a jet to steal. Once you are around the runway, your wanted level will increase. Thus, you must find and steal the jet quickly.Stealing a tank
Go to Fort Zancudo with Franklin, and break into the base using a fast car (planes are likely to get shot down). Enter the base through the gate that runs off the main highway on the west side of the map. Immediately before you drive through the gates of the base, use Franklin's special ability to slow down time as long as possible. This will stop your wanted level from increasing to four stars for as long as it is activated, which gives you a little more time to reach the tank and steal it. Find a tank on base, climb on top of it, and throw the person out of it to steal it.Reducing wanted level
Successfully complete a mission to instantly clear your accumulated wanted level.
A simple way to lose a wanted level is to drive into any Mod Shop, and change the color of your car. As long as the police do not see you drive into the building, you will instantly lose the current wanted level.
Since police first call in the make of your vehicle, you can switch vehicles to help you lose line-of-sight with the police.Losing the police
While the cops are chasing you, drive on train tracks, and they will not follow you.
To lose the police during a chase, press Right while driving a truck to detach its trailer. This can be used to block off alleyways or tight streets during a pursuit.
You can hide from the police in larger bushes. To confirm you are positioned and hiding in the bushes correctly, the arrow that represents your character on the map will turn grey while you are in the bushes.
Another method to losing the police is going to Los Santos airport and getting in a helicopter or jet. Your wanted level will increase when doing this, but the cops will not be able to follow an aircraft.Losing police helicopters
At Wanted Level 3 or higher, police helicopters will begin chasing you. Avoiding helicopters will make escaping much easier. Underground tunnels and subways, underpasses, or bridges will help break the line-of-sight with helicopters. Otherwise, use a rocket launcher to shoot down the helicopter before making your escape in a vehicle.Robbing stores
To rob any store that is open for business, walk far enough into the store so the door closes behind you. Then, start walking back out of the store, but stop once your character is halfway out the door (the door must be open and swung outside, not inside). This will allow you to equip a weapon. Point it at the store clerk, and you should be able to walk back into the store with it drawn and rob the store. Shoot the register(s) in the store, and they should open and money bags will appear. After robbing the store, you can go a few blocks away and return to rob the store again.No wanted level at Fort Zancudo and other places
Fort Zancudo is the US Army and Air Force base in GTA V. It is located around the middle of the map on the west coast. You normally get an instant 3-star wanted level for entering the base. However, there is a way to enter the base and other locations you are not supposed to enter without getting a wanted level or encountering any resistance. Start the second hunting side mission called "Fair Game". After you have killed three elk, Cletus will leave, and you are supposed to finish the mission. Instead of completing the mission, go to Fort Zancudo, and no alarms will go off, and you will not get a wanted level. You can now steal the fighter jet or other vehicles and aircrafts on the base without any resistance and store them in your garage. Note: Make sure to not fail the mission by making a lot of noise and scaring the elk. You can also use this glitch to explore other areas of the map where you normally would encounter resistance and get a wanted level.
This trick requires that the "Three's Company" mission has been successfully completed. Replay the "Three’s Company" mission. Reach the end of the mission where you need to fly back to the starting point (after destroying some helicopters). When you are able to switch to Trevor and fly anywhere on the map, you can go to the Fort Zancudo military base or prison, and you will not encounter any resistance. You can actually shoot people at the military base or prisoners at the prison, and they will not do anything. The base alarm will go off, but nothing else will happen. Note: Do not go too far from the helicopter or the mission will fail.Avoiding wanted level at airport
To avoid getting a wanted level when you enter the airport, purchase a plane hangar.Skipping missions
If you fail a mission several times in a row, an option will eventually appear to skip it.Disabling car alarms
You can usually disable a car alarm by pressing Start and displaying the pause menu. Additionally, sometimes honking the horn will stop a car alarm.Using Franklin's special ability while driving with any character
To use Franklin's special ability (slowing down time) with any character while driving, simply hold open the radio wheel. The time will be slower than when using Franklin's ability, but all driving controls will still be functional.Getting characters to drive themselves
If you want to get a character from one place in Los Santos to another place that is far away, while playing as that character, set a new waypoint on the map, then switch to a different character. While playing as the new character, the other character will drive to the marked waypoint."Children Of The Mountain" mission solutions
At a certain point during the game, you will need a password to access to the "www.childrenofthemountain.com" in-game website. This will happen when Franklin receives a mysterious "My Divine Within" text. It is part of the "Children Of The Mountain" mission. The password to the website is "futility". Additionally, later in the mission-line, you will need to answer a word puzzle. The answers are as follows: Divine, Completeness, Orthodoxy, Process, Realization.Ammu-Nation assistance
When the cops are after you and you are near an Ammu-Nation shop, go inside, and the store owner may pull out a carbine and kill some of the cops for you.Turning Michael into Walter White
Purchase or unlock the following clothes and customization items to transform Michael De Santa into Walter White from Breaking Bad. Buy the Pale Amethyst Sweater ($1,300) and Sand Leather Shoes ($580) at Ponsonbys; Brown Pants at Suburban for $95; Black-Rimmed Glasses at Binco Clothing for $45; and "Beard - Long Stubbed" at the barber for $30.

Go to the Bob Mulét hair salon in Rockford Hills, and select the "Clean Razor" option. This is the only barber shop where you can completely shave Trevor's head (bald).Showing body armor
Wear a normal t-shirt with body armor, and the body armor will show through the t-shirt.Naked hillbilly
In Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness, go to the hillbilly compound at the following waypoint location. There will be a naked hillbilly sitting on the porch, or he will run out of one of the houses to attack you. Note: The hillbillies will attack you when you enter this compound.Keeping empty space in garage
It is recommended you always keep an empty space in at least one of your purchased garages. If you happen to find a rare vehicle and want to save it but already have four vehicles in the garage, you will need to remove one. However, when you load your garage to remove a vehicle, the rare vehicle will disappear.Flipping people off
While in a car, select "Unarmed" from your weapon wheel. Then, press LB to give the middle finger. Note: You can see this feature better in a convertible car or on a bike.Pratfalling
