What Are Job Points in GTA Online?
Job points in GTA Online are a specific set of points that you gain for completing a certain activity or job, hence the name.
Think of it as a leaderboard score. You earn points depending upon how well you performed in your job. Since it's a metric of sorts, there are obviously different amount of job points for the different placements that you achieve.
- 1st : 15 job points
- 2nd : 12 job points
- 3rd:10 job points
- 4th: 8 job points
- 5th:7 job points
- 6th: 6 job points
This continues till the last place player who earns just 1 job point. If you've finished on top of the leaderboard, and you've managed to complete a really difficult activity, you earn an additional job point.
What Are Job Points for in GTA Online?
They don't really do anything that interesting. All they do is play the role of the sorting hat when it comes to choose another activity.
If two teams vote for two different activities, the team with the higher job point tally gets to pick which one you do. If you leave a session or an active playlist, your job points go back to zero.
