Though, it seems some players have decided that they’re far too pure to be robbing folks and moving illegal goods at this point in the game’s lifespan, with one on Reddit claiming to have made a decent amount of money simply by keeping their party-loving customers happy.
Do you play the part of a simple nightclub owner in GTA Online?
This idea is the subject of a recent thread on the GTA Online subreddit, which began with a post from club owner fabreazebrother_1. They posted some screenshots of their night spot’s stats, which showed $56 million in total earnings despite them only having completed one warehouse sale, captioning these images: “My nightclub is just a nightclub. I don't do anything else here.”
Many of their less morally-minded fellow players were perplexed by the idea of raking in so much bank without making much use of the warehouse at all, with user Conscious_Bag_8052 suggesting that their nightclub’s revenue numbers skew in the complete opposite direction and MutantGamer345 declaring: “You've wasted the opportunity to make soooo much passive income by ignoring the warehouses.”
On the other hand, user DM_Me_Tanks revealed that they employ a similar philosophy to fabreazebrother_1 when it comes to their discotheque, saying: “Same, I keep it popular and don't do anything else, it's a cool place to have and perfect for storing my Benefactor (car) collection.”
That said, as many of the thread’s dedicated grinders pointed out, it seems that relying on nightclub popularity alone to make you some serious bank is still a pretty intensive strategy that’ll force you to spend a lot of time in the game, even if you’re relaxing and staring at the contents of your garage.
That said, if you’ve bought every in-game item you want to and aren’t too bothered about your bottom line, taking a leaf out of these players’ books might not be too bad an idea, with user Mebeingnosy also advocating the approach by saying: “I used to make sales out of mine but now it’s just pension money and a place to stash my new exotic cars.”
