Rockstar Games have introduced a new way to get a free $500,000 in GTA Online and it all requires is for you to activate two-step verification on your Social Club account. Here’s how to set it up.

While there are plenty of ways to earn money in GTA Online – races, robberies, stealing cars, and much much more – there is no better thing than free cash. Rockstar Games dole out the free money every now again, be it to celebrate a special occasion, a new update, or because they’re in the giving mood.


However, since April 13, players had been reporting an issue that had been giving them more money than planned. The Grand Theft Auto developers were meant to give players a one-time log-in bonus of $500,000, though many players were getting it more than once – in some cases, racking up millions in free cash.

In order to prevent it from happening any further, players had noted that you can now set up two-step verification on your Rockstar Social Club account. 


This will still get you an additional $500,000 of the in-game bonus and it isn’t all that hard of a process either. Just follow the simple steps below and you’ll be back to earning free cash in no time at all.

How to activate two-step verification on Rockstar Social Club

  1. Head to the Rockstar Social Club and log in
  2. Click the account drop-down menu in the top right-hand corner of the page
  3. Make sure your Social Club account is linked to your Xbox Gamertag or PlayStation Network account 
  4. Head to the 2-step verification tab next to Linked Accounts
  5. Click setup and follow the steps by scanning the unique QR code that appears 

Once you’ve followed those steps and confirmed that the account is yours, you’ll want to give it some time before hopping back into the virtual streets of Los Santos. Though, it shouldn’t be too long before your Maze Bank account is flush with free cash.

With Rockstar pushing the two-step verification method, they could well require everyone to do this for future log-in bonuses – just so nobody is able to abuse the system. So, you’ll probably want to get a headstart and make it happen so that you don’t miss out in the future.


Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

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.
