How Long To Beat Grand Theft Auto Online: The Contract DLC

The Contract is one of the least time-consuming expansions for GTA Online so far.


The Contract is the latest expansion to hit Grand Theft Auto Online, and unlike other content updates before it, it doesn't require too much grinding. For the time being, players can access a smattering of Security Contracts and missions, along with one larger VIP Contract as part of the expansion. And because none of The Contract's content requires more than one person to complete it, everything in the expansion can be beaten quickly, even if players are taking their time.

The Contract mission list

New content added to GTA Online as part of The Contract is split into three groups: Security Contracts, VIP Contracts, and missions, there are only a few examples of each. Security Contracts are easily replayable missions that range in difficulty from Professional to Specialist+, with payouts increasing depending on the difficulty. Missions largely tie in to the character VIP Contracts are based around and generally aren't worth repeating due to their low payouts.

However, the lone VIP Contract added to GTA Online with this update is a great way for players to make a quick $1 million. VIP Contracts are structured similarly to Heists, having players perform three multi-part missions before tackling a final mission with a massive payout. Below are the names of all the jobs and missions players can take as part of The Contract:

Security Contracts

  • Asset Protection
  • Recover Vehicles
  • Gang Termination
  • Liquidize Assets
VIP Missions in GTA Online are structured similarly to the game's heists.

Further setting itself apart from GTA Online's other content, the jobs and missions found in The Contract aren't too time-consuming themselves, with the entire VIP Contract taking only six hours to complete at a leisurely pace. If a player is rushing their way through the VIP Contract, it can easily be beaten in four hours.

Missions that are part of The Contract are also short, taking around ten minutes to finish in total.

Security Contracts, which are the most easily repeatable jobs added as part of The Contract, are also incredibly short. Each mission takes five to 10 minutes to finish, although players will have to wait five minutes for a cooldown to finish before taking another Security Contract.

With everything you can do in GTA Online's latest expansion outlined, here's how you can get started with The Contract.
