GTA Online VIP Contracts Explained

If players want to quickly recoup their expenses, VIP Contracts are the way to go.


After spending upwards of $2 million on an Agency Building, GTA Online players will likely want to start making money as fast as possible using the new content available as part of The Contract. While the new Security Contracts and Payphone Hits pay decently, doling out tens of thousands of dollars with just a few minutes' work, the best new way to generate a healthy stream of revenue is through VIP Contracts.

Much like the game's Heists, VIP Contracts are multi-part missions that task players with completing a larger goal. At the moment, the sole VIP Contract in GTA Online has players working with Franklin and musician Dr. Dre to recover Dre's cellphone, which has been stolen and copied.

In standard GTA Online fashion, players have to track down each phone by completing set-up missions before actually finding and acquiring the phone. Each phone in this case has two set-up missions before being able to go after whomever has made off with it.

VIP Contracts come in three parts, all of which can be tackled by a single player.

Unlike other heists though, these setup missions are simple and can be tackled by a solo player. Players either have to kill waves of enemies or find some sort of evidence, none of which is intensive enough to require a squad of players. The missions where players actually find the phones themselves can be more difficult, pitting them against more, better-equipped enemies. However, skilled solo players should still be able to tackle these larger missions.

Each setup mission completed and phone found rewards players with a small payout, but completing the VIP Contract itself will dole out a whopping $1 million. With such a large payout and so much of the work easily done by one person, players can recoup their expenses and start making a profit quickly.
