GTA 5 Infinite Money/Weapons Cheats and Exploits


Driving fast cars, acquiring arms and firepower and spending money on hookers are three of the staple activities found in Grand Theft Auto 5. However, in most cases indulging in them will leave you with a significantly lighter wallet.

As a result many players will be on the lookout for an easy way to grab a quick buck, and it doesn’t get much quicker, easier or buckier than this.

Using the simple method outline in the following paragraph you can gather about 20 thousand Dollars every 10-20 seconds, and repeat it as many times as you like until you can buy all of San Andreas. Twice.

Infinite Money Exploit
In order to use this exploit, you need to get to any one of the underwater money suitcases found in the game, we’ve provided a picture of the location of one which rewards the player a hefty $25k. Take a deep breath and go down to collect it.

Package Location #1
GTA 5 Exploit #1

Package Location #2
GTA 5 Exploit #2

As soon as you pick it up, “+$25,000” (Package #1) appears in green text underneath your total cash.

While this green text is there, switch over to another character. Switch back to your man under the sea and you’ll see the green text still there, but something is different! The total cash above it is higher than it was last time!

What happens is that GTA 5 adds the cash in the green text to your total, but after the switch, it reads the green text again, and adds the amount a second time. This is repeatable as many times as you wish for it to be while the green text is displayed.

When it fades away, look behind you to see that the money suitcase or ‘Hidden Package’ has reappeared. Pick it up and get to switching once more.

Infinite Weapons
To use this exploit you need to be in the middle of an active mission, and have approximately $30k in the bank (you’re going to spend it, then get it back. So don’t worry!). Whilst in the middle of the mission, go to any Ammu-Nation and buy everything in it.

Every weapon, every grenade, and every upgrade and attachment.

Head outside the store, and use a grenade or rocket to kill yourself, thus ending the mission in failure and restarting it.

When you load back into the game, you will find that you’ve been given your money back, but if you go back to the Ammu-Nation you’ll realize you still have the weapons and upgrades that you bought!

You can even repeat this when new merchandise comes into the store.

      If you place the two characters at two different package drops you can earn money with both of them each time you switch. The packages respawn and so does your O2 level.

      That scrapyard idea is ingenious, i’ll definitely try that out,

      As for the switching, it actually takes longer if your too close because the person diving for the money always ends up slightly above where you positioned him before the switch so you have to keep diving and grabbing the suitcase by hand.

      If you do it the right way they always stay just below it so as soon as you switch you get the money without repositioning your character. Works out quicker that way and you can do it without looking so I just watch something on youtube and follow the audio cues :D

      the one a little north of the fair grounds always has 25000 in it

      This location has a $25000 case in it. It isn’t necessary to switch to another playable character either. Just off shore from this location of the crosshairs, is a boat with 2 chicks in it. Use that to get to the location marked. Dive down, collect the case, swim back up to the boat. In the area where you dived down, you will see another boat. Use you boat to drive by them, then go back to the marker. Repeat as necessary. I found this method (for this location) is quicker than switching players.
