First Posted: Dec 21, 2014 11:13 PM EST

Grand Theft Auto 5 requires you to have several things in order for you to beat the game. They include patience, skills, tenacity, and, of course, money.

However, money isn't always easy to come by in GTA 5. That's why we put this guide together that will help you get more cash fast.

GTA 5 PS4, Xbox One: How to Make Money Fast and Easy in Grand Theft Auto 5

1. Rob people as they're taking money out of ATM machines

Hang around an ATM, wait for someone to come by. Once they start withdrawing some cash, rob them. Cha-ching.

2. Rob Gruppe 6 vans

Gruppe 6 security vans typically contain lots of money. To get at the money inside these vans, you can either shoot at the van's occupants to get them to come out. You can also run the van off the road.

After that, blow up the doors in the back and you'll be greeted with a pile of cash.

3. Complete side quests in GTA 5

If you want to make more money, don't just finish off the main missions in GTA 5. Complete as many side quests as you can. Be patient, and explore your surroundings.

It's like scrounging around for supplies in your average survival horror game. If you're diligent and patient, you'll likely find ammo, health packs, and other stuff you could really use. This also applies to money in GTA 5.

4. Buy GTA 5 real estate

It's simple: The more real estate you own in GTA 5, the more side quests you'll get. Side quests provide a means for more sources of cash.

5. Keep your cars safe

Keep your best cars in your garage The more you use your expensive rides, the bigger the chance that something will happen to them. Los Santos isn't exactly a safe place, and you definitely don't want to see your pride and joy come to any harm, which also translates into tons of wasted money for you.

6. Dive for piles for money in bodies of water

Here's a neat trick that will help you get lots of money fast. If you find chests of money underwater, pick them up. Then, save your game. After that, reload the same game.

If you go back to the same spot where you found that first chest, then the chest should reappear. You should be able to take it again. Rinse and repeat.

Switching between different characters should also have the same effect. If you grab money underwater, and then switch to another character, the money should appear in the same spot once again.

7. Listen to dialogue before you do a heist

Before a heist, pay attention to what parts of the heist are most important when Michael and Lester are talking about the next job.

The important parts could lead to bigger cash payoffs. Also, hire less experience people to be part of your crew. By doing so, their cuts of the loot will be smaller, thereby making yours larger.

8. Take care of yourself. Seriously.

Hospital bills and medical expenses can empty out your wallet fast. Do your best to avoid killing yourself with car crashes and other mistakes. If you don't you can end up paying for them big time.

Use Franklin's special ability, which allows you to slow time down, in order to navigate through tight traffic jams while driving. This should help you avoid car accidents and injuries.

9. Compete in races

Participating in races can help you win lots of money, and boost your driving skills at the same time. The better your driving skills are, the better you'll get at completing heists. Getting better at heists means more cash payouts for you.

10. Improve your driving skills and stamina

The better your driving and stamina skills are in GTA 5, the better you'll get at finishing heists.

The better you get at completing heists, the bigger your cash payouts will be. So, it behooves you to improve both of these attributes.

11. Buy a car company, then wreck your competitors

If you invest in a car company, you can eliminate the competing companies by destroying their cars. The end result will be customers flocking to your company to buy your cars. 

12. Invest in companies that make guns and ammo

Invest in companies that manufacture guns and ammo. Considering how violent the world of GTA 5 is, it shouldn't take long for you to make money by taking this route.

13. Wreck a company, then buy their stock when the price on it drops

Destroying a company's fleet of cars will make their stock price drop fast. Once it does, buy that stock cheaply, and destroy the cars that are owned by rival companies.

Your stock prices should soon rise after that.

14. Save money by getting discounts from LifeInvader, the GTA 5 social network

LiveInvader is GTA 5's spin on Facebook. In GTA 5, you can "stalk" (which is similar to "Liking" something on Facebook) the pages of the stores listed below. If you do so, you'll be rewarded with discounts. Discounts, of course, save you money.
