As most people now grind preparing for Casino, I decided to write another up-to-date guide for still one of the best earning methods.


You can repeat it infinitely as long as you start the game from story mode each time then create invite only session from there. If you join another session (invite only or public), you will lose finale so set your default settings to always start from story mode.

The session should be created by host each time. If you want to quit the game to continue next day, you should exit the same way: disconnect first then exit game.

Previously you could do it in two ways: 1) Host is not paid if you dc early but you would keep finale in public session. 2) Host gets paid if you dc later but you should not go to public session if you want to keep the finale.


Now after the last patch if you join any session except your created invite only, you will lose finale in any case (Easter egg from R*).


You should dc right after the final cutsceen starts where the boat is going toward you. That way everyone will get paid including host. After you receive connection failed message, QUIT the game AFTER you disconnected to prevent it from syncing. Once the game is closed, reconnect internet and start invite only session from story mode. It is best to set your spawn location to heist apartment’s GARAGE so you could go straight to the heist room. If your spawn location is set to APARTMENT, you should go outside and wait for Lester’s message otherwise you will get empty heist board.


To save street car/helicopter at least one player should hit checkpoint near the bank entrance then after it’s parked, go to your garage on foot and sit in the vehicle inside your garage then tell the other player outside to kill npc.

Sorry i'm a little slow, this is basically to keep repeating the finale and keep getting paid for it right?, also "To save street car/helicopter at least one player should hit checkpoint near the bank entrance then after it’s parked, go to your garage on foot and sit in the vehicle inside your garage then tell the other player outside to kill npc." is before entering the bank?. Once again, sorry i'm a little slow.

This is a bit ****. When did this kick in?

Just to clarify, if I load into a public session even after clearing my cache I will lose my finale?

Bogdan is still better it is compleated quicker to my knowledge and gives more because you only need 2 so can give him most of money. Which titles up to like 1,000,000
 
This is still a great money method. Good job op

Think this is only for pc? Don't think host will get any money on console?

Your got it right.

Can't confirm that. Has anyone tried late dc on consoles recently?

Have other heist members commend u will help keep u outta bad sport if u plan 2 do the glitch alot

I never had bad sport using this method. I’ve seen people complaining about bad sport doing Bogdan but they do it in public sessions so they probably just extrapolate and never even tried invite only or late dc method.

Tried clearing cache both on steam and non steam versions - didn't help.

Yeah, just to clarify this is for PC. Nothing has changed regarding consoles.

PC tag to title would save a lot of confusion.

I used to grind the **** out of this glitch and never had a problem, not saying it's not possible, just not enough to worry about

Hi, Did this 3 times and now I am unable to login to social club with error code: 2254ee52-b8e8-45b8-98d7-1124a8b9ca9b #1.000.0

My social club launcher is telling me to buy the game but that that option is unavailable right now

social club on browsers shows above error code, can anyone advise me on this matter?

Update (edit) : Now I get same error on launcher login page as well, I am worried this might mean account banned? but I have not received any email from rockstar, and nobody on here indicated this could or has happened to anyone else so am still confused since I have never done anything dodgy on my account before so whatever the issue is i'm certain it's caused by doing this glitch.

Edit: I am now seeing a huge spike in reports for GTAV on down detector starting shortly after this issue occurred, so fingers crossed that it's just an issue with their servers but it happened right as I was doing the glitch so I hope you understand my immediate concerns and likely stupidity as I am new to the exploiting club haha :smile:

Good thread and I like the way host get paid on PC. What's the deal with saving the helicopter on here though? I've had a few successful runs and other times when I sit in car in garage a few seconds later it throws me out the garage in the car.

Ive tried various tricks when this happens. Having goto the bank or enter the bank as the objective doesn't seem to make a difference. I've reentered the helicopter then drove back into the garage but that throws you out the car. Get back in again heli still disappears. But randomly it does work and not drive me out in the first place. I started to think my controller was playing up and doing RT by itself but even unplugging it still the same. Very strange. And only happens on PC. Xbox I save heli everytime and it doesn't drive out the garage by itself even with same controller. Any clues?
