The GTA Online “Amateur Hour” Import/Export Source mission has been a frustrating one for players – but this simple trick might make it much easier.

The 2016 Import/Export update brought players a whole host of missions to GTA Online, offering players new ways to earn cash and cars in the game.

Even for seasoned players, these missions can be quite frustrating, with a number of criteria needing to be met to complete them.

GTA 5 has been one of the most popular games of the last decade.

That said, with the game having been out for around 7 years now, players are finding the best ways to easily complete different missions, regardless of their difficulty, and that’s what has happened here.

As supersaiyanrose124 explains, there’s a good way of completing the Amateur Hour one, which makes it much quicker and easier than completing it the ‘proper’ way.

In the mission, an NPC steals the vehicle and you then have to chase after them and return it while having a 3-star wanted level.

This isn’t exactly easy, and it can grow frustrating, but as explained you can actually trick the NPC into basically getting out of the car and waiting for you.

All you have to do is initiate the police chase and then just leave the area, either by killing yourself or through some other means so as to lose the stars and slow the mission down. Eventually, the NPC will stop driving and just stand outside of the vehicle, at which point you can go there, shoot him and steal the stationary vehicle.

Although this method seems great, one response to the post also suggested a way that seems even easier – as long as you trust in your shot accuracy.

Reddit user EditEd2x said that you can actually stop before triggering the car and shoot the driver before the car starts moving, with some handy spots to utilize to complete the mission.

EditEd2x had another idea to make the mission even simpler.

Whichever method you choose here, it’s much easier than attempting to complete the mission as it’s intended, so you can save yourself a lot of time, effort and frustration by following some of the above tips.


GTA Online Black Friday update: Huge sales, Open Wheel bonuses, more

Rockstar Games have got a Grand Theft Auto Online update that plays into Black Friday with a whole host of sales for vehicles, businesses, and buildings. 

GTA Online’s weekly updates are always something to look forward to for fans, as Rockstar Games rolls out some bonuses so that players can build up their Maze Bank accounts. 

The bonuses, both for cash and RP, are the big attention grabbers from the updates, but the sales that Rockstar also drops are nothing to be ignored either. You can save quite a lot on a car that you want or a business you want to own. 

With Black Friday getting underway in the real world – marking a few days of sales – Rockstar have also joined in the fun with some pretty interesting discounts as well. 

Open Wheel races bonuses – 2x Cash & RP

As already noted, the bonuses are the biggest part of the weekly updates, so we’ll start there. This week, starting November 26, is all about Open Wheel Races for double rewards while King of the Hill pays out triple. 

The bonuses for Open Wheel races are not limited to one or two select tracks, but you will have to jump into a Rockstar Created race to earn the bonus. The best way to check this is to simply join a race from the pink F1 car icons that are dotted around the map.

If a lobby then decides to vote for a non-Rockstar Created race, simply back out and find a different lobby. You’ll have up to December 9th to earn the bonus rewards.
