GTA Online Jobs / Missions List, Tips, Payouts and More

GTA Online Jobs List and Payout Info


Here's a list / guide of GTA 5 Online jobs and missions including their rewards, tips, and more sorted by highest payout first.

Notes:
  • You can use CTRL + F on your keyboard (or the search feature in your browser) to find a specific job or mission quickly.
  • Press X (Xbox 360) or square (PS3) to delete a job if you don't like it. You can also cancel a job in progress with the same button but it is not recommended because it gives you bad rep.
  • If a mission is too far away to drive to, try getting a helicopter at this location (other locations) or call Merryweather for a helicopter pickup that costs $1000. (You can shoot the heli pilot and fly it yourself) Eventually you can also call Lester to locate a helicopter. (Note: As of the latest update, you can't call Lester or Merryweather during some missions.)
  • The San Andreas Flight School 1.16 update increased payouts for most of the lower paying missions, so the payouts you see are lower than their actual value. Currently, you can think of the payouts for most of those missions as double + ($3000 - $9,000) + the bonuses listed below. (Although take note that while most lower payout missions have been increased some high payout missions have actually been reduced.)
  • Note: You now get extra cash for completing missions / jobs on the normal / hard difficulty settings and playing with other people  Payouts now also depend on the amount of time spent in a mission, the amount of enemies that spawn, enemies killed, number of deaths, and other variables, so they will vary wildly. And lastly, since the latest update, you no longer get half the payout if you repeat a mission. You will always get the full payout.

Rank: 65
Payout: $11,500
Base RP: 2050
Players: 1
Max: 4
Go to the military base (location) A very easy way to get into the military base is to drive off the small hill next to the fence at this location. The cargobob is located on a helipad close to the large open hangar. (cargobob location)

Once you steal the cargobob, if there are no helicopters on you, try flying towards the ocean and losing the wanted level there. Another way to lose the wanted level is to land the cargobob somewhere in the mountains, then get out, take out the police helis and then hide in a bush / small tree.

Once you arrive at the container park the cargobob take out the enemies guarding it, once you attach to the container with your cargobob (hold right on the D-Pad to release the hook) an enemy helicopter will spawn, carefully detach the container, land, get cover, take out the enemy heli, then deliver the container
DefenderMartin70$11,5002200Fly behind the contact, and use missiles to destroy the enemy helicopters that appear. (Note that they won't try to attack you, so focus on taking them out as they fly behind the contact.)12
Landing GearRon55$11,5001700Let one person get into a plane to spawn the enemy helis, then get in buzzards and destroy them all. Whoever gets in the plane needs to dodge missiles from enemy buzzards, so be ready to do loops, barrel rolls, etc. Other players in Buzzards should cover the plane on the way back46
On ManeuversLester65$11,5002050Have someone grab the buzzard (don't attack, sneak around the enemies to the buzzard, they won't attack until you attack them or get very close) get in the buzzard and carefully take out the enemies around the Annihilator, then clean up the area, and have someone get in the Annihilator. Have the buzzard quickly take out the jet and two attack choppers headed for the Annihilator. Even if you don't take out the jet, you can still dodge it if you fly low and fast, you can also outrun the enemy helicopters if you go fast enough13
Artificial ScarcityMartin19$10,0002200Multiple people recommended but not required for this one. You will need to destroy seven trucks, some of which will try to drive away. Sticky bombs will be useful in this mission. A few SUVs with enemies will try to chase you, so take them out. The last few trucks might require you to go into an area with lots of enemies, so be careful. If you go to the street on the other side of the facility where the trucks are, you can climb a ladder to the roof and use grenades, or a grenade launcher to take out the last remaining trucks easier. You don't have to kill the enemies this way.14
Satellite CommunicationsTrevor60$10,0002600Take out all the enemies guarding the trailer and then get in the truck. If you're driving the truck, only shoot the bikes in front of you, the ones behind can't hit you so floor it, try to stay ahead of them and deliver the trailer to the gas station.
Trash TalkMartin81$10,0002500Bring 4 sticky bombs to destroy the Garbage trucks, then grenades for the HQ. Lots of enemies guarding the remaining garbage trucks, after they are destroyed, the boss will try to flee on foot, kill him to complete the mission. Note: You can also destroy the garbage trucks by shooting the large gas tank a few times, it's located on the left side next to the front wheel.16
Chemical ExtractionLester65$10,0002500Fight your way to the van, then get in and quickly get out to find some good cover, an enemy helicopter will arrive, shoot it down, then get in the van again, and find some more cover, some cars with enemies will spawn as you drive out of the compound, kill them then deliver the van16
Bust OutLester55$10,0001400Head towards the bus quickly before it arrives at its destination, shoot the driver, pick up the guy, and lose the cops. You can use a helicopter for this one for easier completion14
ExtraditionMartin50$10,0002050You can go to the Sandy Shores landing strip (the large one) to get two jets for this mission. Thanks to BristolClark for the tip! Make sure you wait until everyone is ready to go into the base, once inside take as many jets as possible. You can also call Lester to get a helicopter to get to a jet easier.f Once you destroy the Titan, quickly fly toward the DA (big red dot on the map) and blow up his limo before he gets to his destination. If you can't hit him with your jet, a good trick is to have someone stay in the area around Del Perro Beach and wait for the DA then take him out (he will be passing by there). You can lose your wanted level by flying your jets really high and toward the ocean, then go back grab the briefcase and deliver it to complete the mission.16
