Highest Paying Missions in GTA Online

Time is money

In GTA Online, money is everything. Whether you’re just starting out or a veteran, you can never have too much cash. Contact missions are one of the earliest, as well as easiest, ways to make money in the game, but some are far more efficient with your time than others.

GTA Online has a formula for how it adjusts your payouts when you complete missions. Four to six minutes is the sweet spot where you will receive 100 percent of the base payment upon completion. If you are below four minutes, you’ll receive less, while finishing above six minutes will increase your payout. However, this boost is minimal and the time used for this incremental gain isn’t really worth waiting for. That being said, some missions are more efficient than others when trying to make quick money.

Most Efficient GTA Online Missions Regarding Time and Money

The highest paying and most efficient mission in GTA Online is Trash Talk. For this mission, players need to destroy four parked garbage trucks that a rival crew owns. Naturally, it isn’t as easy as that and each truck is guarded by well-armed enemies. The mission ends with you taking down the crew’s boss. If completed in the four minute window mentioned above, your average earning per minute is $3,715.

The next best mission isn’t much lower in terms of value and is Rooftop Rumble. Martin Madrazo offers players this one and it can be completed with up to four people. It’s relatively straightforward in that you must interrupt a meeting between the FBI and The Professionals, steal some documents, then deliver them to Madrazo. If completed optimally, you’ll earn $3,657 a minute, making it almost as good as Trash Talk.

Finally, another great mission for amassing money quickly is Judging the Jury. For this one, players must take out eight jurors around Los Santos. Though they are unarmed, police will guard the final four and if you kill any of them, you’ll instantly earn a wanted level of three stars. Judging the Jury may seem like a hassle compared to the other two, but luckily only one player in your group needs to lose their wanted level and go to Madrazo’s estate once you’ve killed the jurors to finish the mission. If done ideally, you’ll rake in $3,560 per minute.
