[Top 10] GTA Online Best Freemode Missions

Best Freemode Missions in GTA Online
You don't always need to grind heists to make money

High Risk - High Reward

To truly master the trade of becoming a successful criminal, you have to outclass your opponents to hustle for money in an active lobby. Not all missions can be completed with the comfort of knowing you can restart and repeat in case anything was to go unplanned. Some missions require an impromptu action, and a tad bit of luck. 

In GTA Online, there are endless avenues for making money. One that should be given its due credit is the freemode missions. To escape the monotony of running heists and races, you can always earn extra bucks by target-killing people, and selling the stocks piled up at one of your businesses.  

This article ranks the 10 best freemode missions in the game based on their potential earnings, and the chance to run them repeatedly. Just make sure you keep an eye out for weeks where some of these missions might be paying double or triple money, as that’s going to really boost your revenue from these missions. 


10. MC Clubhouse Bike Service

MC Clubhouse Boke Service guide

Your Motorcycle Clubhouse is not just a cool place to hang out with your prospects but also a great business place to earn a side income. After the Criminal Enterprises DLC, you now have the option to service and deliver a customer’s bike. 

You will earn GTA$ 150,000 for delivering for the first time. Onwards, you can earn GTA$ 50,000 per delivery.

To start earning money through deliveries, you need to own a Motorcycle Clubhouse and have the Custom Bike Shop upgrade purchased. You’ll get a call from Malc informing you about the opportunity to earn money by servicing customers’ bikes. Then, bikes will start to spawn randomly at your clubhouse, and you can service and deliver them. 

It’s a great way to earn money because:

  • The delivery missions are straightforward.
  • It takes just a few minutes to complete the entire process.
  • The payouts are quite decent.
  • You get to drive cool bikes.
  • It’s a fun thing to complete these missions every now and then


9. Ammu-Nation Contract

Ammu-Nation Contract guide

With the Criminal Enterprises DLC, you can now sell excess weapon parts that your Bunker staff manufactures to Ammu-Nation. You literally don’t need to do anything to get the supplies ready. Your only job is to just deliver them to one of the selected Ammu-Nation across the map.

Your first-time payout will be GTA$ 150,000, and then forward you will earn GTA$ 50,000 per delivery. The delivery truck will be ready once every in-game day (48 minutes in real life).

To start, you just need to own a Bunker and the delivery truck will spawn automatically. Just head over to the truck and start the delivery mission.

It’s a great way to earn money because:

  • The payout is outstanding.
  • You just need to deliver, that’s it.
  • The delivery missions can be completed within 5 minutes.
  • It’s a great way to keep repeating these missions every 48 minutes without having to worry about resupplies.
  • If you drive fast enough, you can even outrun some enemies that spawn during the delivery mission.


8. Auto Shop Exotic Exports

Auto Shop Exotic Exports guide

Inside the Auto Shop, you have a daily list of vehicle names written on a board that are in demand to be exported. By hunting around the map (watch the video above for the best strategy) for the listed vehicles, you can make decent bucks without really having to try too hard.

There are a total of 10 cars that need to be exported and delivering each one at the docks will earn you GTA$ 20,000. Delivering all 10 in a single day will also earn you a bonus of GTA$ 100,000.

To begin, you need to complete at least one Auto Shop Contract. Then, Sessanta will contact you regarding the Exotic Exports list, and then the list will appear outside your office in the Auto Shop. The cars on the export list will randomly spawn as a blue dot across various locations on the map. You just have to steal the car and drive it all the way to the docks to deliver it. 

It’s a great way to earn money because:

  • You can earn money fairly easily.
  • It’s almost relaxing to roam around the map looking for the listed cars while listening to your favorite radio station.
  • All 10 cars can be delivered in less than 2 hours if you take the ideal route (watch the video above).
  • You have an entire real-life day to get all the cars delivered.
  • You’ll get to steal and drive cool cars.


7. Auto Shop Service

 Auto Shop Service guide

Probably the most legitimate way to conduct any business in GTA Online is to service the cars of customers and deliver them back. Not only is it lawfully unobjectionable, but the payouts for doing so also aren’t bad either. With the Auto Shop, you have the option to service and deliver vehicles of customers and deliver them either yourself or through your staff member. 

You can hire two staff members in total and each will cost you GTA$ 385,000. Plus, you can also buy an additional Car Lift for GTA$ 650,000 to make sure you have the capacity to service two customers’ cars.

There are three classes of customer cars, and their delivery profits vary accordingly. Delivering low-range cars will make you a profit of GTA$ 20,000. Delivering mid-range cars will make you a profit of GTA$ 25,000. Delivering high-range cars will make you a profit of GTA$ 30,000. The cars randomly show up at the Auto Shop. Moreover, you can assign your staff member to deliver the car as well, but you’ll get a slightly lower profit for doing that.

To start, you need to own an Auto Shop. After completing the setup mission for the Auto Shop, you’ll be contacted by Sessanta that a customer has delivered their vehicle for service. Inside the Auto Shop, you just need to customize the vehicle according to the customer’s requirements, and then either deliver it yourself or assign your staff member to do it.

It’s a great way to earn money because:

  • The payouts are good.
  • The entire process takes less than 5 minutes.
  • By asking the staff to deliver, it almost becomes a passive source of income.
  • You get to drive cool cars.
  • You can earn additional bonuses too by installing extra upgrades to the customer’s car.


6. Motorcycle Clubhouse Contracts

Motorcycle Clubhouse Contracts guide

The Motorcycle Clubhouse is one of the most important purchases you should make once you get some cash piled up. It’s going to unlock various opportunities for you to earn money. One of them is the Clubhouse Contract missions. Most of these missions can be carried out solo, and they’re quite fun to do. 

Depending on the mission, you can earn between GTA$ 20,000 to GTA$ 60,000.

To start these missions, you’ll need to own a Motorcycle Clubhouse. Then, open the Interaction Menu > Scroll down and select Motorcycle Club > Select Start a Motorcycle Club (you’ll be registered as a President) > Approach the notice board in the meeting room of your Clubhouse and start any of the contracts available. 

The contracts on the board are random. You’ll need to complete the ones on the board first before you can play a different one, or you can join a different lobby and get another randomized set of contracts available. In total, there are 13 contracts. 

It’s a great way to earn money because:

  • The contracts are actually fun to do.
  • Most contracts can be completed in less than 10 minutes.
  • The payouts are respectable.
  • The cooldown time for each contract is just 2 minutes.
  • “Life and Deathbikes” is the best-paying contract.


5. Terrorbyte Client Jobs

Terrorbyte Client Jobs guide

As good of a vehicle the Terrorbyte is, the advantages of owning it don’t just stop at its defensive abilities and the option to store and upgrade your Oppressor Mk II. With the Terrorbyte, you can also perform Client Jobs. These missions are basically a tamed version of heists that you can do either solo or with your friends. 

There are a total of 6 Client Jobs available, and you can expect to earn around GTA$ 30,000+ from each job, except from “Collector’s Pieces” and “Deal Breaker”. 

To start a Client Job, you need to first register as a VIP, CEO, or MC President. Then, walk inside your Terrorbyte and access the touchscreen computer to select the job. 

It’s a great way to earn money because:

  • The missions are fun.
  • Some of the jobs are reminiscent of the missions from story mode.
  • The payouts are fair.
  • If done with friends, the missions don’t usually take that long to complete.
  • Stick to the first four jobs from the list for best payouts.


4. VIP Work

VIP Work guide

As the CEO or VIP of an organization, you can start VIP Work and complete simple and straight-to-the-point missions to earn decent money. There are a total of 17 VIP Work missions you can do, mostly solo, but a few that require a friend to start. 

Depending on the mission, you can earn anywhere from GTA$ 10,000 up to GTA$ 35,000. 

To begin, you need to start an organization or own an Executive Office. To start an organization, you’ll need to register as a VIP and have at least GTA$ 1 million. Plus, you’ll be registered as a VIP for only 4 hours.

Once that’s taken care of, you: Open the interaction menu > Scroll down and select SecuroServ > Register as VIP/CEO > Scroll down and select VIP Work > Start your desired mission. 

It’s a great way to earn money because:

  • The missions are relatively straightforward.
  • You can complete them in 2 – 5 minutes.
  • They pay reasonably well.
  • Although there’s a cooldown time for each mission, you can continue playing other VIP Work missions in the meantime.
  • “Sightseer” and “Headhunter” are the best to be played back-to-back, as they have just a 10-minute cooldown time and pay GTA$ 20,000+ each.


3. Agency Security Contracts

Agency Security Contracts guide

The return of Franklin in The Contract DLC was a welcome surprise. Along with many cool kinds of stuff added, a few neat ways for earning money were also introduced. One of them was the Security Contracts that you can do through the Agency. 

You basically help your clients out by doing 6 different types of jobs. These jobs can assign you anything from destroying equipment of paparazzi, recovering jewelry and vehicles, and even rescuing a freaking monkey. There are a bunch of other scenarios too.

There are three different levels to these Security Contracts. The first one is Professional, which pays between GTA$ 30,000 to GTA$ 45,000. The second one is Specialist, which pays between GTA$ 45,000 to GTA$ 60,000. The third one is Specialist+, which pays between GTA$ 60,000 to GTA$ 70,000. 

To begin, you need to buy an Agency first. Then, you need to register as a VIP, CEO, or MC President, and hop on to your Agency computer to start. Alternatively, you can also contact Franklin over the phone to start a random Security Contract, but you’ll need to first complete at least one Security Contract through the Agency computer.

It’s a great way to earn money because:

  • There are a variety of missions.
  • The payouts are very nice.
  • You get to improve your shooting skills against tough enemies.
  • The cooldown time for these missions is just 5 minutes.
  • Doing it with friends can be entertaining. 


2. Vehicle Warehouse Deliveries

Vehicle Warehouse Deliveries guide

A very popular way for earning money in freemode sessions is by exporting stolen vehicles through your Vehicle Warehouse. You’ll be surprised how much you can make by just delivering cars to customers, after modifying them. The tedious part is sourcing the vehicles, but of course, you can make sure you only source vehicles that will give you the highest profit as discussed below.

There are 3 vehicle classes to sell: Standard-Range, which gives you GTA$ 30,000 profit. Mid-Range, which gives you GTA$ 50,000 profit. Top-Range that gives you GTA$ 80,000 profit, provided you sell all three vehicle classes to specialist dealers. There are added bonuses as well depending on the lobby size.

A neat trick for sourcing just Top-Range cars is to make sure you fill up your Vehicle Warehouse with 10 Standard and 10 Mid-Range cars. Once filled, you will automatically source only Top-Range cars from then onwards, and you can keep sourcing and selling them back-to-back. 

To begin, you need to own an Executive Office. Then, you register as a CEO, and from the office computer, you can purchase a Vehicle Warehouse and source vehicles to store in it. To sell, you need to access the Vehicle Warehouse computer and export cars from there. 

It’s a great way to earn money because:

  • With Associates, the profits you can earn are insane.
  • You’ll be driving cool cars.
  • You can use a Cargobob to deliver vehicles easily.
  • The missions are extremely straightforward. You must deliver the car while taking minimal damage.
  • You can complete some deliveries in less than 2 minutes.


1. Payphone Hits

Payphone Hits guide

One of the classic methods of earning money in the Grand Theft Auto series has always been through payphones. Since the launch of The Contract DLC, you get the same option where Franklin calls you over various payphones located around the map to assassinate people in interesting ways. 

The base payment for each assassination is GTA$ 15,000. In addition, you can make an extra GTA$ 70,000 assassination bonus based on how the client wants the target to be eliminated. This is something you’d definitely want to do.

To begin, you need to own an Agency and complete at least three Security Contracts. Afterward, Franklin will call you and discuss the opportunity to take out targets over payphones. Then, you’ll randomly get a payphone icon on the map in case you happen to be passing by it. Alternatively, you can also call Franklin to request a Payphone Hit. 

The cooldown time after each hit is 20 minutes.

It’s a great way to earn money because:

  • You can earn really good money.
  • The missions are engaging.
  • The variety of ways to assassinate targets makes the mission experience a whole lot better.
  • You can complete some of the missions within a few minutes.
  • You get souvenirs for your Agency office by completing the Payphone Hits.
