Bunker. MC. Nightclub. You want to AFK for passive production? Here is a small guide that will save you costs and keep you safe from cheaters.

How to AFK Safe and Cheap

Start any contact mission without a timer. You can use Blow Up – unlocked from level 12.

Start the mission and go to any of your appartments (CEO office is not open). Notice that your properties do not show on the map, so you better know where you live up front. Also notice the blue corona – you can enter your appartment now.

Now you go down and sit in front of your tv, turn it on and watch it. Once done I prefer to Alt+Enter to run the game in a window. You can now use your computer for other stuff – or go outside and have a cold beer or do other real life stuff.

Two major benefits from doing AFK in a contact mission:

  • No cheater scum can join you and do dirty stuff to you. You are alone and safe.
  • No daily costs. If you AFK in a regular public lobby you will be charged daily costs for each day in GTA Online (48 minutes real world time).

That is it. To save power you can lower your graphic settings before doing this.

My first game was Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation) back in 1996. And since then gaming has been my main hobby. I turned my passion for gaming into a job by starting my first geek blog in 2009. When I’m not working on the site, I play mostly on my PlayStation. But I also love outdoor activities and especially skiing.
