Grand Theft Auto Online players have found a spot that allows them to easily grind and rack up the double rewards from the Stab City survival mission. 

Every Thursday, Rockstar Games rolls out an update for GTA Online, giving fans new content to liven up the streets of Los Santos. These updates can bring anything from new vehicles to free money, new jobs, and, on the rare occasion, new buildings to explore.

One staple of the weekly updates, however, are the bonuses. These bonuses, which are usually double rewards and sometimes extend to triple, are given to a category of jobs or races each week. With the July 30 patch, survival missions are worth double.

Obviously, players are quick to hop on these bonuses and start grinding out missions to get cash. Though, for survival, you might want to check out the Stab City survival mission.

Survival missions are all about fending off waves of enemies.

The tip, which has been around for a little while in GTA Online and is well-known to dedicated survival players, was pointed out again by Reddit user UnsettledParadox

It centers around the Stab City mission, where, if you head to the small trailer park of Stab City in the northern part of the map, you can use a dumpster as a piece of cover to easily fend off the waves. 

By jumping inside the particular dumpster, which sits more or less in the middle of Stab City, you can become almost invulnerable to the attacks. Why? Well, if you use the first-person mode, enemies will regularly fire into the dumpster and not your head. 

Possible 2x survival grind. This box is near the center of the survival area. This is Slab City Survival. We did this as a team of 2 but seems possible to solo. The RP is great and this is 100% legit and easy to do. Go get em! from gtaonline

So, you can literally hop on into the dumpster, switch your camera to first person, and take cover. Just sit there as the enemy waves sprint at you, and gun them down every once in a while. 

Using the double rewards to your advantage, you’ll easily start making upwards of $100,000 for around ten rounds of work. Just rinse and repeat when the bonus is active and your Maze Bank account will look pretty healthy.

Grand Theft Auto fans are hopeful that Super Bowl 55 could have some answers about GTA 6, given that Super Bowl 54 seemingly had teasers a year ago. 

Despite complete silence from Rockstar Games, there is no bigger question in gaming right now than ‘when will we finally get our hands on GTA 6?’

There has been all manner of rumors, leaks, and teasers in the last few years, with players digging through Grand Theft Auto V, Red Dead Redemption, and even Rockstar Games’ trademarks for possible clues.

All signs have pointed towards a return to Vice City after last year, at Super Bowl 54, a number of the television crews broadcasting the game used Vice City graphics and references. Now, with Super Bowl 55 on the horizon, GTA fans are hoping for more of the same.

There have been plenty of rumors about GTA 6, but nothing official yet.

With Super Bowl 54, it was a little easier to make the Vice City references, given that the game was played in Miami – the city that the iconic GTA location is based on.

In the case of Super Bowl 55, though, players are hoping that, because The Weeknd is performing at the Half Time show on February 7, there might be more clues – given that there have been rumors he’s been working with Rockstar

“I could see a 15-30 second commercial of a car starting up or a cinematic shot of whatever city the game takes place in followed by the Rockstar and GTA VI Logo being a VERY SLIGHT possibility,” said Redditor ItsTreDay, noting that a game announcement would be enough – nevermind gameplay or anything else. 

The Superbowl is coming back up in a few weeks. While unlikely, I feel a teaser is possible this year from GTA6

Others quickly agreed. “They couldn’t ask for a better announcement opportunity,” said one fan. “Fingers crossed. Wish we get some info from them. Even if it was just a logo,” added another.

However, some aren’t convinced, questioning why Rockstar would need to spend money on advertising at the Super Bowl. In recent years, 30-second ad spots at the Super Bowl have commanded around $5.6 million.

Rockstar knows how much hype there is about GTA 6, and whenever they decide to tease it, or start to roll out a reveal, it’s going to get serious attention anyway. But, we’ll just have to wait and see – they could switch things up for once.
