GTA V online patch ends easy money

By Daniel Chubb - Oct 6, 2013

Grand Theft Auto V online mode featured an easy way to make money thanks to replaying a single mission a few times to build a cash reservoir, but this ability has been stopped since the latest GTA V online patch. Some people welcomed this change to make everything more balanced, although others see it as a problem considering they enjoyed replaying a mission in GTA V to gain easy money online.

The patch Rockstar issued yesterday changed everything and has led to a debate among gamers. Some people feel that Rockstar “want everyone to buy the cash cards”, while others feel it is all about getting “players to play the rest of the missions”.

These viewpoints have split fans, so we’d love to know if you think Rockstar would go to this trouble to make gamers purchase cash cards for GTA V? Leave a comment below with your opinion.

In our opinion Rockstar should have handled this GTA V online money problem another way, and they could have changed it so playing a mission repeatedly would have reduced the amount of money you got. It is true that some gamers like to play missions again with different friends and family.

GTA V online problems after the patch – there are of course still a number of problems with online gameplay that don’t include money hoarding, so feel free to leave any issues you have found in the comments.

We have noticed a number of gamers getting their stats deleted after a session or even having connection problems trying to get online, does this happen to you?

    yesterday after I downloaded the patch, I was able to play and it worked quite well. But now I have the same problems that I had before the update. I can’t go online.

  • anonymous

    U can still replay press l2 or r2 when voting like dislike it will say restart

    If they were going to do something like this they should have just done a full reset. now you have players that werent affected by the lack of servers that have everything, aand players that were affected and have nothing at all


    whats more pathetic is they had chosen to waste time fixing the money problem, instead of working on allowing us to be able to play they game online in the first place. its like putting your shoes on before your socks!!


    Online with u1.02 has not let my character save properly, I lost 5 ranks from 17 to now 12. I saved properly and it has all my “up-to-date purchases”, but I just am rank 12 w/ 13000RP. It’s just a huge piss off really.
