Top 10 Highest-Paying GTA Online Mission Guides for New Players

Grand Theft Auto Online

4. Death From Above: Martin @ Level 24 – $5,000

This one’s a straightforward mansion raid, and it’s possible to do on foot, but it’s way easier if you can get your hands on a helicopter. You’ll actually start off this GTA Online mission headed toward a landing strip, but finding a helicopter anywhere nearby won’t be easy. We recommend calling your buddies at Merryweather Security (you are friendly with Merryweather, right?) and giving them $1,000 to send a helicopter to you… at which point you can kill the pilot and take the chopper yourself, or let the pilot fly you there in style. Either way, it’s worth the price to making finding a helicopter easier, and this won’t be the last time that being on good terms with Merryweather will come in handy in the game. Park on the roof across from the mansion, use your sniper rifle to take out your enemies, then raid the mansion when the odds are more in your favor. This video below shows it can be done without the helicopter, but just requires a bit more running and gunning.

    • Steve Jenkins
      Thanks, Delrio. We think they’ll come in handy, too! :)
  • Lexy
    Thanks!! I wonder why I’m always offered the same missions tho…wondering if it’s a glitch or it goes by ranking
    • Steve Jenkins
      Good question, Lexy. It’s primarily because Rockstar doesn’t HAVE a lot of additional missions for lower ranking players, yet. Rumor has it that they are working on adding additional missions, which should help add some variety.
      • Lexy
        Thx Steve!! I figured it had something to do with the ranking. I’m too busy trying to finish the actual story that I’m barely online (esp with all the glitches and bugs going on right now)…I plan on playing more frequently upon beating the actual game!

  • David Parker

  • David Parker
    ghosts is out in 4 days
  • David Parker
    i’m gonna use the sniper rifle usr it has faste handling and can kill you through teh waist
    • Steve Jenkins
      Probably a good call.
  • David Parker
    but i heard the l115 can kill you in the upper leg that might be a sniper for one shot kills instead of hit markers
  • Ted Sterling
    super gameplay in story mode. Had a time switching from character to character but finally got it down. online game play has way to many children on it. either their parents don’t understand the adult content or don’t care. don’t much like playing with them because they don’t understand game etiquette.
    • Steve Jenkins
      You’ve got a good point, Ted. I think the parents just have no idea what’s in the game, or they just don’t care. It’s a rated M game, for a mature audience. It’s too bad when some online gamers spoil the experience.
  • Yaseen Suwailih
    I think gta online is really cool. Also making gangs and robbing people is even better. Finally you make make girls as characters!
    • Steve Jenkins
      You’re right, Yaseen. It’s about time! :)
  • Chase
    In “Death From Above” video, how did they keep the cops off of them for that long? Their stars didn’t appear until after they got onto the mansion grounds. Every time I try they police appear in force the second I get spotted outside the mansion and that’s what gets me killed every time. Even when I try sniping from a distance, the cops show up right under me with a helicopter shooting at me from above. I never have a chance.
  • bobbythecorky
    This list sucks. Just do a survival. You’ll get 20 000 each time you pass the 10 waves.
  • u2694Christophuhu2694
    or win a one lap race on Down the Drain. 13k if a full race.
  • Kalvin Parker
    I just do Out of Court Settlement with a mate, one goes and stores the car whilst the other completes the mission. Then bambard martin with job requests until we get the mission and do all over until our garages are full.n
    • J Burns
      Am I missing something? What stolen car? it’s a document that we retrieve. Any car that you steel during the mission? Thanks,
  • GDSGagr
    Do the mission coveted on hard. it pays 18k each time
  • bobbybrown963
    just do Rooftop Rumble its fast, easy, and you get 18k from it. its quicker than survivals.
  • Halorecon714
    Car thing doesn’t work anymore, update fixed it.
