How to Become a Billionaire in Story Mode

Warning: This guide may contain slight spoilers, however this is kept to a very minimum.

Before you go and read through this massive guide, please make sure you keep these points in mind.

1. The pictures of Stock Markets were taken after doing this so you may get different results on that market when you look at it. This was purely just to set an example.

2. This guide does not use any cheats, glitches or mods. This is completely programmed by Rockstar to work this out.

3. This guide has been made by someone with quite a bit of experience in doing this so I will be able to answer the majority of your questions.

4. If you get a COMPLETELY different result than you should have, you have done something wrong or maybe misread the guide. Don’t beat yourself up over this.

5. The BAWSAQ Stock Market has completely different results every time. Bare in mind, reloading a save may cause you to get a different result every time.

6. Make sure you’re profiting at ALL TIMES. If not, you may have read the statistics wrong.

7. Don’t forget to read the Introduction section. You HAVE TO read this first before anything else!

8. If there is anything you need help with, regarding this topic, please let me know by posting a comment.

9. The Vice Assassination can be really unpredictable at times but don’t worry if you can’t get the sales high enough. I sometimes get the same problem. After all, it is on BAWSAQ.

10. Before starting any missions, please read the comments. There are always some rumours of different methods that you may want to try out. These may not always work as sometimes it may just be the user’s luck or a coincidence. If the method does work, please confirm it in the comments so I can make this guide even better for others. There are also other errors that I might have made that you may want to check the comments for too.

These are all of the points you will need to keep in mind so far. This guide may be updated regularly and this may change from time to time.

Introduction
Hello everyone!

I’m making this guide, purely for new players to Grand Theft Auto V, looking to get a huge amount of cash. Make sure you don’t do ANY Lester Assassination Missions before this guide! This may require you to load up old saves, or even start an entirely new game. Don’t worry though, if you truely are desperate to collect this amount of cash, you won’t mind doing so.

This guide also requires a lot of paitence too so be very aware about that. All of the ‘BAWSAQ’ stock market puchases WILL ALWAYS vary. However, ‘LCN’ will NOT vary. LCN is very much the same. This should not make much effect on you though, it didn’t really bother me too much.

Don’t forget that you may need to keep coming back to this guide, so if you would like to, you can give it a favourite or maybe share it just so you can find it easier (I’m not begging for favourites, otherwise I would have told you to leave a like as well). If you have anything you would like to ask, leave a comment down below and I will check it.

Also, if you get the time, it would be nice if you could share your results on different missions (what percentage you got etc) in the comments for others to check as well. If anyone gets higher or lower percentages that people haven’t mentioned or isn’t in this guide, leave a comment too and I will update it. (I will most likely know if you’re telling lies, I have done this over 4 times now).

Thank you and good luck!

PS
There is a random event that helps you get some extra millions that you may want to avoid until the end of this guide. The location of this event will be marked in a screenshot below in this section of the guide.

How to Get to the Stock Markets
This section has been quickly put here to show new players where to find the Stock Markets quickly.

Go to the ‘Internet’ on your phone.

Go to ‘Money and Services on the bar near the top.

Select the top one for LCN.

Select the second one for BAWSAQ.

Different Ways of Passing Time
I made this section as there are lots of ways to pass time in Grand Theft Auto V so I felt the need to explain the ones I know. These have ALL been recorded with a rounded up time. This means that these will not be SPOT ON, although they will be very, very, VERY close to it. I hope this section helps some of you who want to do other stuff than just go to sleep.

Please note that I have never tried anything other than sleeping to pass time on purpose so I guess you could say at the moment, sleeping is the only reliable access to passing time without over shooting your investments. I might add some personalised things you can do while you’re passing time. Enjoy!

SLEEPING

Clearly, this is the MOST obvious one to passing time and possible the easiest. This is however, the most boring one there is. This is the most reliable one so far as it’s just the right amount of time and you’re unlikely to overshoot it.
Hours Passed: 6 hours

FREE ROAM

So there are many people who just like to mess about it free roam now and then. If you are one of those people, maybe you should try some of the ‘Things to do’. These may give you something to do while you wait for time to slowly go by. This is the longest way of doing it but if you keep checking every in game hour, you will never over shoot it. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t still save anymore.
Hours Passed: Normal time: 1 Minute = 1.5 Seconds

TAXI RIDES

I doubt many people do this but this can be for people who are worried about over shooting it and waiting forever to get back there again. This isn’t a very reliable time, I’ve yet to test it a bit more.
Hours Passed: 1-4

HOSPITAL VISITS

Dying probably isn’t the greatest of things to do, maybe even something you might want to avoid in cases like these. This can easily over shoot your investment and you will feel gutted if it wasn’t intentional. You will also loose some of your cash in the process. The most amount of cash they can take from your account is $5000.
Hours Passed: 10

More ways to pass time will be here soon.

Passing Time in Normal Free Roam
This section will give you ideas on what to do while passing time on free roam without skipping a minute and having a bit of fun. This is mainly for those who want to just have fun while becoming billionaires. You can tuck straight into this, they may look boring but it’s amazing what some people will find themselves doing when they are trying to have fun so I will also mention the possibilities of doing these things.

Random Beach Balls

Location –

Appearence –
Possibilities – As stupid as this looks, you will first off be using time driving to the location which is a bonus I guess. However, you could try many things with these beach balls. Shoot them, see what happens. Push them into the water, watch the results. Drive into them, what happened? Maybe nothing will happen. Who knows? Either way, it’s a little something to have a look at.
To refresh them (respawn the beach balls), drive just past the tennis court on the highway and turn back. Screenshots below to help.

Rampage Side Missions

Location –

Possibilities – The rampage missions are quick, simple and easy in a fun way. This will help you pass time by making you travel from mission to mission and holding off different gangs, rednecks and more while in rage mode. And who doesn’t like it when Trevor gets angry?

Extra Screenshots –

Police Chase

There is no location or appearance for this one because it can be in any location and look different every time. Is all you do is wait until you hear sirens and try to find where it’s coming from. Once you have found the police car, follow it and see what happens. If it is chasing someone, it usually ends up in a gun fight between two or more people.

If you want to, you can even join in and choose your side in it. But remember, shooting either people will get yourself into a police chase which could lead to death. If I was you, just sit back and watch the show.

Assassination 1: The Hotel Assassination
This assassination is the very first mission you will need to do. Sadly, you cannot wait until all of your Story missions are done as you will get a text from Franklin at one point before a heist saying something like ‘I need to do something from Lester first before we can make a move on this thing’. This is when you will have to do it. Here is the statistics for this mission.

Assassination 1: The Hotel Assassination
Highest Price Seen: $379.85
Lowest Price Seen: $360.14
Stock Market Needed: BAWSAQ
Buying Method.: Before Mission
When to Start the Mission: Monday. Or Tuesday being the latest.

These statistics are the MOST IMPORTANT part of the guide.

I personally didn’t do this one the last time (on PC) because I forgot to invest as I’m an idiot. But seriously, this one doesn’t really matter too much as I still got $800,000,000 in the end so it didn’t make much of an effect. Although, do this anyway as it can help out a lot, especially if you have a Pre – Order bonus.

Before you do this mission, invest in BettaPharmaceuticals (BET). Make sure you invest ALL of your money into this. A screenshot below should help you. You will want to make ALL THREE Story Mode characters (Micheal De Santa, Franklin Clinton and Trevor Phillips) invest ALL of their hard earned cash. Just before you go ahead with this, make sure you save before you invest and immediately after you complete the mission. Once you have invested, go and do the mission right away.

Once this has been completed and you have used the Quick Save feature on your phone, head straight home. The best way to pass time while your Stock Market investment increases is Sleeping. It’s boring but quick and free. Make sure you make alternative saves incase you over shoot your investment and miss the highest prices. How I do it is save once you get home, go to sleep, check your phone. If it has risen over those six hours your character has been sleeping, quick save, sleep and repeat. Once you notice your percentage or price starts decreasing, reload the save where it was highest and sell all of your shares for all three characters.

As this was the first mission, you will be done with this guide for a while, until you complete the campaign. Once completed, come back for the next missions. And remember, avoid that random event!

Assassination 2: The Multi-Target Assassination
This mission is the MOST IMPORTANT assassination mission. This requires you to be quick in the mission, and to be patient when waiting for prices in the Stock Market to rise. Here are the statistics for this mission:

Assassination 2: The Multi-Target Assassination
Highest Price Seen: $348.98
Lowest Price Seen: $146.98
Stock Market Needed: LCN
Buying Method.: Before Mission
When to Start the Mission: Monday. Or Tuesday being the latest.

These statistics are the MOST IMPORTANT part of the guide.

Before you do this mission, invest in Debonaire (DEB). Make sure you invest ALL of your money into this. A screenshot below should help you. You will want to make ALL THREE Story Mode characters (Micheal De Santa, Franklin Clinton and Trevor Phillips) invest ALL of their hard earned cash. Just before you go ahead with this, make sure you save before you invest and immediately after you complete the mission. Once you have invested, go and do the mission right away.

Once this has been completed and you have used the Quick Save feature on your phone, head straight home. The best way to pass time while your Stock Market investment increases is Sleeping. It’s boring but quick and free. Make sure you make alternative saves incase you over shoot your investment and miss the highest prices. How I do it is save once you get home, go to sleep, check your phone. If it has risen over those six hours your character has been sleeping, quick save, sleep and repeat. Once you notice your percentage or price starts decreasing, reload the save where it was highest and sell all of your shares for all three characters.

BUT WAIT! Before you do anything, just after you’ve finished selling your shares and got this cash, you are still not done. Ready for some more cash? Of course you are. Quickly head over to Redwood (RWC) in the LCN Stock Market and do the same process on this. The reason you will earn a lot from this is because the market has just crashed, so the shares go back up quickly.

Once this is done, you should be looking at over $100,000,000 in your pocket. If so, move onto the next mission’s details. If not, re-think your strategy.

Assassination 3: The Vice Assassination
This is the first mission that requires BAWSAQ. Remember what I said, prices vary by a huge difference so be careful on these ones. The rest is as normal. These are the statistics for the mission:

Assissination 3: The Vice Assassination
Highest Price Seen: $1049.06
Lowest Price Seen: $521.76
Stock Market Needed: BAWSAQ
Buying Method.: Before Mission
When to Start the Mission: Monday. Or Tuesday being the latest.

These statistics are the MOST IMPORTANT part of the guide.

Before you do this mission, invest in Fruit (FRT). Make sure you invest ALL of your money into this. A screenshot below should help you. You will want to make ALL THREE Story Mode characters (Micheal De Santa, Franklin Clinton and Trevor Phillips) invest ALL of their hard earned cash. Just before you go ahead with this, make sure you save before you invest and immediately after you complete the mission. Once you have invested, go and do the mission right away.

Once this has been completed and you have used the Quick Save feature on your phone, head straight home. The best way to pass time while your Stock Market investment increases is Sleeping. It’s boring but quick and free. Make sure you make alternative saves incase you over shoot your investment and miss the highest prices. How I do it is save once you get home, go to sleep, check your phone. If it has risen over those six hours your character has been sleeping, quick save, sleep and repeat. Once you notice your percentage or price starts decreasing, reload the save where it was highest and sell all of your shares for all three characters.

BUT WAIT!

Here is what one of the readers of this guide, CaptnMorgs, have said “After the Vice Assassination Mission and you sell you stocks in Fruit, you should invest in Facade on the BAWSAQ right away. The stocks of Facade rebound after the Vice Assassination mission. I bought the stocks at about $316 and sold at $418 for around a 32% return.”
I have yet to confirm this myself, however this is what Sluigi, another reader of this guide, has said “It is what it is, I invested in Facade after selling my Fruit shares, like Captn said. If those don’t pay off I can just reload my save from selling the Fruit and move on.”
This method actually works! I know this by a screenshot that FakeD posted proving the shares shooting up for Facade on the BAWSAQ stock market. There are no screenshots I can provide however at this time. I will add some shortly. For now, this was the proof:

Thank you for the feedback on this CaptnMorgs, Sluigi and FakeD

Once you have completed this, move onto the next mission. Remember to ask anything you like in the comments, especially if you’re having trouble.

Assassination 4: The Bus Assassination
This mission is another BAWSAQ investment. Remember, the prices and percentage will vary in huge differences. Here are the statisctics:

Assassination 4: The Bus Assassination
Highest Price Seen: $756.97
Lowest Price Seen: $404.60
Stock Market Needed: BAWSAQ
Buying Method.: After Mission
When to Start the Mission: Monday. Or Tuesday being the latest.

These statistics are the MOST IMPORTANT part of the guide.

After you do this mission, invest in Vapid (VAP). Make sure you invest ALL of your money into this. A screenshot below should help you. You will want to make ALL THREE Story Mode characters (Michael De Santa, Franklin Clinton and Trevor Phillips) invest ALL of their hard earned cash. Just before you go ahead with this, make sure you save before you invest immediately after you complete the mission.

Once this has been completed and you have used the Quick Save feature on your phone, head straight home. The best way to pass time while your Stock Market investment increases is Sleeping. It’s boring but quick and free. Make sure you make alternative saves in case you over shoot your investment and miss the highest prices. How I do it is save once you get home, go to sleep, check your phone. If it has risen over those six hours your character has been sleeping, quick save, sleep and repeat. Once you notice your percentage or price starts decreasing, reload the save where it was highest and sell all of your shares for all three characters.

Once you have completed this, move onto the next mission. Remember to ask anything you like in the comments, especially if you’re having trouble.

Assassination 5: The Construction Assassination
This is the last mission. Once you have completed this, feel free to comment what you ended up with. Thankfully, you don’t have to use BAWSAQ this time. Just LCN again.

Assassination 5: The Construction Assassination
Highest Price Seen: $340
Lowest Price Seen: $124.68
Stock Market Needed: LCN
Buying Method.: Before Mission
When to Start the Mission: Monday. Or Tuesday being the latest.

These statistics are the MOST IMPORTANT part of the guide.

Before you do this mission, invest in GoldCoast (GCD). Make sure you invest ALL of your money into this. A screenshot below should help you. You will want to make ALL THREE Story Mode characters (Micheal De Santa, Franklin Clinton and Trevor Phillips) invest ALL of their hard earned cash. Just before you go ahead with this, make sure you save before you invest and immediately after you complete the mission. Once you have invested, go and do the mission right away.

Once this has been completed and you have used the Quick Save feature on your phone, head straight home. The best way to pass time while your Stock Market investment increases is Sleeping.

Once you notice your percentage or price starts decreasing, reload the save where it was highest and sell all of your shares for all three characters.

Congratulations! You have now completed all of the assassination missions. You may now do the random event (if you haven’t already).

Here are some extra screenshots that you may like to see.


Random Event: The Tinkle [TNK] Investment
If you haven’t already, you can now go do the Random event to complete your bank before you go off showing off your cash, buying every property in Los Santos and pimping hundreds of cars and hanging out with your other billionaire buddies.This is the very last mission/event regarding investment changes in the LCN and BAWSAQ Stock Market. Just one step away now.

BEFORE you go ahead with this mission, please invest before you start it. If you see him, keep a distance from him and switch between characters to invest. This is because as soon as the man gets out of the car the stock shoots up (for some people anyway).

First off, get in a fast car like the well known Comet. You don’t need a super car or sports car, you can just use Franklin’s Bravado Buffalo if you want.

Now you have a good car, make sure you have Franklin driving it so you can use his special ability if you mess up.

Now that you are all set and ready for the final journey to becoming the richest man in Los Santos, place a marker and head to the location like I have.

Once you have got there, you should see a man in a black suit next to a broken down black car. Stop next to him and let him in. Then drive as fast as you can (preferably without crashing at all) using Franklin’s special ability in the moment when it’s required most to the Los Santos International Airport.

When you have arrived at the location, he should get out the car, telling you to invest in Tinkle (TNK).

This can be found on BAWSAQ.

Now, as fast as you can, get all three characters to invest in this. You could do this before hand I think, although I have never tried it. If you want, let me know if it works.

If necessary, you may want to go to sleep too.

Don’t forget to check your phone when you wake up!

The rough percentage is about 30. Once it reaches near that, sell your shares.

Congratulations! Your bank account is now filled full of cash and you now hopefully have become a billionaire. If not, maybe you got somewhere near what I got? Who cares!? If you have more than $300,000,000 then I shouldn’t be worrying! You’re all set and ready to flick your dollars everywhere! Strip club? Shoved a million down that s**** throat. Los Santos Customs? Stick dollar bills to your car. Ammunation? Shoot dollars at that d**** face. Police chase? Bribery. Simple. You have now become a bigger d*** than Devin Weston!

Now go out there into the gigantic map of San Andreas and live a life of Bill Gates. Just a less intelligent and more crazy version of him.
