Be it anything GTA 5 has to offer, you got to have in-game money in your pocket to avail those things. From bank Robberies to running a drug cartel you get involved in all types of mischiefs to fill in your pockets. New to the game? There are quite a few methods by which you can make easy money in the game. To begin with, you can rob convenience stores, or gas stations in GTA 5 to make enough money to get things going. Here’s how you do it.
1. How to Rob Shops,Convenience Stores or Gas Stations in GTA 5
When you rob a shop you do not get huge cash loads of money as what you get in heists. But, when you’re new to the game it gives you an ample amount of cash to run your errands. No matter how pesky it might sound, robbing a shop in GTA 5 turns out to be fun and rewarding. Here’s how to rob shops or convenience stores in GTA 5.
I. Find a Store to Rob
You cannot rob any store in the game. The store you want to loot must be accessible. There are a few of them in the game. Look out for stores that have well-lit front entrances with doors that you can walk into. Now that you’ve found out the store location, you only have to enter and rob the store. However, entering the store is not as simple as it may seem.
Some stores like supermarkets around gas stations in GTA 5, allow you to enter the store with a gun in hand. However, that’s not the case with every shop there in the game. Many places like barbershops refrain from the use of guns within the shop. As soon as you try to enter with a gun, the gun automatically pulls back.
In that case, there’s a trick to work it around! Go into the store and push back the entrance door in the direction opposite to the store. Stand midway through the entrance door and bring the weapon wheels up and choose the weapon of your choice. Go right straight into the store, now with a gun in hand.
II. Threaten the Shopkeeper
Now that you’ve equipped a weapon and are inside the store, it’s time to get some cash. Aim at the shopkeeper and threaten him. While you do that, he’ll take out money from the cash register as you continue to threaten him. You can shoot around him, and you’ll get your money quicker!
However, not every store owner brings out money when you aim a weapon on them. In Barbershop for example, when you aim a weapon on the barber, he’ll not take out the money from the cash register. Instead, a notification pops up telling the shop is closed, and the services are unavailable right now.
In which case, just shoot the cash register and take the money yourself. Keep shooting the register up until a bag full of cash pops up. It totally depends on you whether or not to kill the store owner. Moreover, some shop owners are also armed; take ammu-nation store for example. They’ll backfire as soon as you point your gun at them. You need to take them down as soon as possible and loot the cash register by yourself.
III. Loot the Money
Now that the cash pops out of the cash register. All that is left is to take the money and run. It is important to note there may be more than one cash register present at the store. Make sure to loot all of them to maximize your loot!
IV. Get out and Evade the Cops
It is highly likely that as soon as you rob a store, cops will be after you. It totally depends on what circumstances you rob the store. If there’s no one near the store and you are using a silenced weapon, you won’t likely grab the attention of the cops. However, if you do evade them and you’re now free with the money.
