Clever GTA Online VIP Work trick makes cargo missions ridiculously easy

A clever GTA Online tactic with VIP Work is making it ridiculously easy for players to complete Cargo jobs and even evade some pesky griefers.

While there a tonne of ways to make money in GTA Online, the most dedicated of players can be found grinding jobs like Import/Export, Cargo, and VIP Work. However, while doing these jobs in a public lobby, you are a prime target for griefers.

Players have uncovered ways to combat these problems, however, with one tactic with the Mobile Operations Centre making Import/Export mission an absolute breeze. In a similar vein, one player has uncovered a clever way to disguise players hauling cargo around the map – giving them time to reach their end goal.

VIP/CEO Work is key in GTA Online.

The tip was brought forward by Reddit user soupa-hot-fire, who noted that after someone starts a VIP Work job, all the cargo in the area of that job will disappear off the map.

By simply letting the timer run on the VIP Work, and not completing the selected job, players who are hauling cargo will not show up on the map as a cargo blip. This means that, yes, their location will still be visible, but any griefer who wants to ruin their day and blow up the cargo, won’t know that they’re running cargo.

Obviously, with this being slightly location-based, you’d need to start the VIP Work in selected locations for the best results. Soupa-hot-fire noted that Haulage will work for everyone in the session but something like Headhunter should be started as closed to the middle as possible.

While plenty of players will probably take this tip with them into their public sessions, griefers probably won’t be the biggest fans of it being common knowledge.

Though, if Rockstar figures that the tactic is too powerful – or more like an exploit – then they may have to step in and patch. We’ll just have to wait and see.

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.

It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
