GTA Online has many ways to earn money quickly through a series of businesses and missions, including a robbery contract. Players who own an Auto Shop in Grand Theft Auto Online can access as many as eight robbery contracts via the Job Board, which provides a massive payout between $170,000 and $375,000. However, to access the Job Board, players must be registered as a SecuroServ VIP, a CEO, or an MC (Motor Club) President.
The Auto Shop robberies are akin to other heist-style missions in GTA Online, where players must complete setup tasks before executing a final mission. Although robbery contracts offer a significant sum of money as a reward, players can always abandon the mission in between if they suddenly change their minds.
GTA Online: Robbery Contracts and their Payouts
The Job Board in Auto Shop features three random robbery contracts at a time. These three random contracts can be any of the following alternatives (alongside their payouts) available in GTA Online:
- The Bank Contract – $178,000
- The Data Contract – $170,000
- The Superdollar Deal – $185,000
- The Prison Contract – $175,000
- The Agency Deal – $182,000
- The E.C.U Job – $172,000
- The Lost Contract – $180,000
- The Union Depository Contract – $300,00 – $375,000
For those unaware, the abovementioned contracts became a part of GTA Online after the Los Santos Tuners’ DLC, which was rolled out in July 2021. Initially, only the first six Auto Shop robbery missions were added by Rockstar Games to GTA Online. The Lost Contract and The Union Depository Contract arrived in the game in August and September, respectively, later the same year.
Purchasing and setting up an Auto Shop
Players first must visit the LS Car Meet and introduce themselves to Mimi and buy the LS Car Meet membership for $50,000 to access various other LSCM services and race events. It will ultimately help players enhance their LS Car Meet reputation to get more jobs from Mimi.
Players then need to purchase an Auto Shop (via Maze Bank Foreclosures site) first while registered as a VIP, a CEO, or an MC President and complete a setup mission to access the Job Board, where three contracts will be listed. There are five of the following locations, with prices ranging between $1,670,000 – $1,920,000, in which players can set up an Auto Shop:
- Mission Row
- La Mesa
Once players have purchased an Auto Shop at their desired location in GTA Online, they can make additional customizations, including style, emblem, staff, personnel quarters, and more. Thus, with all the customizations, an Auto Shop can cost around $4.4 million, much more than its base price. Besides purchasing, the players must complete the Impounded Car mission.
To complete the Impounded Car missions, players must steal Sessanta’s yellow Obey Tailgater S while taking down the police guarding the vehicle at Mission Row Police Station. Once players have entered the vehicle, their wanted level will jump to three stars. Therefore, one will have to lose police tailing them and return the vehicle to the Auto Shop for Sessanta. It will unlock all features of their Auto Shops, including the contracts on the Job Board.
However, to use an Auto Shop’s Job Board to pick up a contract, players must also register as VIPs, CEOs, or MC presidents. Kenny Dixon Jr. and Sessanta will provide the contracts listed on the board.
More about the Robbery Contracts in GTA Online
On the Job Board, players can choose the Auto Shop Robbery mission they desire to complete. Each contract is almost similar to other GTA Online Heists, and players must complete two Free Mode preparation missions set up by Sessanta before heading to the finale mission. However, players who don’t intend to complete a task can call Sessanta to cancel it.
