10 Tactics for GTA Online Beginners
Although it has been out for 6 years, dozens, maybe hundreds, tens of thousands more players join the GTA world every day. Epic Games’ free offering of GTA 5 recently caused records to break in the number of downloads of the game. GTA 5, as you know, offers players the opportunity to play online in the open world with GTA Online as well as the story mode.

Newcomers to the game may get lost and afraid of so many options, but it is extremely simple to rise and progress in the game with the tips we will give you.
What character should I create?
The first thing that greets you when you start the game will be the character creation screen. In this menu, besides the appearance of your character, you can also choose the characteristics that reflect your lifestyle and how you spend a day. Although these settings affect your appearance and character you want to a little bit, it is worth mentioning that they have little effect in the game.
For this reason, we recommend that you focus on your character’s appearance rather than his personality. Before starting the game, you need to make sure that you create a character skin that pleases you, otherwise it will cost you dear to change the look later.
Should I pass the GTA Online training?
After creating your character, you must first pass the GTA Online training, which consists of short speeches, before you can jump into the GTA Online world. In this tutorial, your character will fly to Los Santos Airport and you will see the tips you need to learn in the game. Although there is a “pass the training” feature in the game, we recommend that you complete the training so that you can understand the mechanics in the online world.
In addition to being useful for you, it should be noted that if you skip the tutorial, you will not be able to take some of the missions that come later in the game. Make sure you complete this very short and simple tutorial for your own sake.
What should be the next step?
When you complete the tutorial, the gates of the huge GTA Online world open and you can do whatever you want in this world. One of the first things you will do in the game will be to explore this world as much as possible and find out what it has to offer you. At the beginning, you can steal and sell cars, and use your phone to browse the tasks that suit you.
Additionally, if you pause the game and select Jobs in the Online option, you can have a job in the GTA Online world. How you want to get to know the game by taking baby steps is entirely up to you.
How do I prevent other players from bothering me?
In the world of GTA Online, it is possible to meet many friendly people, but there are also plenty of people whose goal is to create chaos in the game. Even when you want to explore the streets of Los Santos, it can be extremely frustrating to meet people who give you tomato paste, random punches, or try to steal your pocket money.
If you too become a victim of these chaotic gamers, you can activate the passive mode if you press the M on the computer, the touchpad on the PlayStation and the observation button on the XBOX. Thanks to this mode, other players will not be able to interact with you, but you will not be able to attack or equip weapons. If the passive mode prevents you from doing the task, you can easily click on the find new session or find new job option to leave the troubled player behind.
How do I restore my health, armor and ammo in the game?
In GTA 5, your character’s status is shown by green and blue bars under your radar. The green bar shows the status of your health, while the blue bar shows the status of your armor. To refresh your health, you can eat junk food from vending machines, even buy these junk foods in bulk from the market and consume them from the interaction menu whenever you want.
Steel vests can be purchased at the “AmmuNation” store in the game. You can collect the vests you have purchased in your inventory again and equip them whenever you need them. You can decide whether the steel vest will appear on your character, and this decision does not affect the condition of the armor in any way. You can also buy your ammo from the “AmmuNation” store or from the inventory menu.
Should I buy any property?
There are many different property types available in the game that can be purchased and offer various benefits. For example, garages help keep the cars you buy or stolen safe. You can easily see the properties you can buy by opening the internet on your phone and clicking on the option of Money and Services, then entering Dynasty 9 Real Estate.
It is really important to earn money with missions in the game and buy your own property. Especially if you buy a luxury apartment, you can find features such as changing clothes, as well as a garage of your own and a planning room for your robberies.
Later in the game, if you have enough money in your pocket, you can own an office from Dynasty 8 Exclusive Realty, you can buy many different properties from nightclubs to underground shelters with Mazebank Foreclosure.
How do I make money and progress fast?
Many legendary weapons and missions in GTA Online cannot be obtained until you gain enough RP. You can earn money fast and increase your reputation by doing lots of robberies, entering cargo businesses, accepting VIP jobs in the game.
In addition to the tasks in the game, it is also possible to earn high amounts of cash and RP by participating in weekly events regularly organized by Rockstar Games. By participating in these events, you can benefit from awards as well as discount coupons for properties and cars. You can click here to be informed about the events organized by Rockstar Games.
Should I complete the story missions?
In addition to the online missions available in GTA 5, there are also story missions that allow you to earn RP and cash. Characters like Lamar, Simeon Yeterian, and Gerald have their own missions, and if you get tired of racing or blowing up cars, these missions may seem like medicine to you.
How can I protect the money I earn?
Suppose you have finished certain tasks and have some money in your pocket. As we mentioned before, GTA 5 Online is an environment where people of all heads can easily do what they want, so it will be extremely dangerous to have money in your pocket.
In order to protect the money you have earned, you should go to the nearest ATM as soon as you receive the money and deposit the money into your account. Otherwise, one of the players may try to steal all your money. To find the nearest ATM to you, you can go to the Quick GPS option from the game menu and click on ATM.
RP, so should I care about reputation?
It may not be enough just to have money to access all the features in the game. Some missions and weapons put RP at least as much as money, and you won’t have access to such features if you don’t have the desired RP.
GTA is more inclined to reward decent people just like in real life. If you help other people during any job and don’t try to blow their cars like crazy, the game will give you a score called “Good Sport” and those points will return to you as RP or cash. Although the chaos is occasionally fun, it is useful to be a good person and take advantage of the other blessings of the game.
You don’t need to buy a good car in the game. If you subscribe to the Rockstar Social Club, you can have one of the best cars in the game, a two-door racing car that looks very much like the Nissan GT-R. Thanks to this extremely fast car, you can participate in races and come first easily.
An important detail is that you need to invest money in the loss theft measure Loss / Theft Prevention to prevent the car from being stolen by other players. Another thing that will help protect your car is to buy a garage with the first money you save as we mentioned earlier.
