How to complete GTA Online 2-Step Verification to get $500,000 free

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.


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.
