The new Criminal Enterprises summer update is finally out in GTA Online, bringing a lot of much-needed changes to all facets of the game. However, it also modifies the revenues of some activities, making them more or less profitable than before.

In this article, Gurugamer is going to showcase the 5 best ways to make money in GTA Online Criminal Enterprises DLC.

1. Grinding Security Contracts

Completing more Security Contracts will permanently increase your daily earnings at F. Clinton and Partner. Earned cash can be collected from your office safe at the Agency. On top of the high bonuses for doing contracts, players are now able to reach a higher level of contract accumulation now.

Before today's update, to max out your passive income you had to complete 201 contracts to earn 20k every 48 min. Now you are able to go above 20k - if you already have a number of contracts completed, 500 is now the ceiling for the maximum passive earnings.

2. Doing Endgame Heists (replay glitch)

End-game heist finales are still a great way to grind out money, except that you need to cycle between multiple heists instead of doing only Cayo Perico over and over again. However, for those who want to do Cayo Perico over and over, they can do the Heist Replay Glitch exploit to repeat the heist finale without having to do any setup missions.

The exact method of glitching depends on the platform players are using. As setup missions are the longest part of a heist, this would increase your heist revenue exponentially.

Currently, there are three End-Game heists in GTA Online: The Doomsday Heist, The Diamond Casino Heist, and The Cayo Perico Heist

3. Sourcing special cargo in Warehouses

In this patch, new members of staff have been added to Cargo Warehouses. They can be regularly assigned to source Special Cargo for each Warehouse for GTA$7500. This, alongside the two new source cargo missions, make the Cargo Warehouse worth doing.

Now when you deliver crates you can ask your staff to source in the meantime. You can do it for every warehouse. Then they may also find mixed goods that you can sell in a single vehicle for 150k.

Additionally, the first crates sale is double. So if you have one large warehouse with 111 crates already collected, it would sell for 4.4 million, or over 6 million in a full lobby

4. Doing Beginner Heists

As most players have already ignored these heists, Rockstar has buffed their payouts to make grinding them more viable.

These buffed heists include: The Fleeca Job, The Prison Break, The Human Labs Raid, Series A Funding, The Pacific Standard Job

With higher payouts, it might actually be time to come back to doing them to see if they can yield better income for your time. It is worth noting that these activities require other players to participate and cannot be done solo.

5. Doing business in Private lobbies

From this patch onwards, all Business activities — including Sell Missions — will now be available to play in private (Invite Only, Crew, and Friends) sessions.

This allows players to gain money easily with a friendly crew without risking harassment from griefers.
