There’s nothing most GTA characters like more than money. And judging from the expensive cars and clothing items we can mod into the game, I’d say most players like money too.
Earning money, moving money, spending money, and showing off your money are some of the best distractions for a lifetime criminal – and GTA 5 offers plenty of opportunities to do so.
That said, gamers are always hungry for more.
The following mods revolve around money – whether it’s earning it, showing it off, or making it magically appear in your account! Grab your duffle bags and snag a car with a spacious trunk.
10. Money T-Shirt for Franklin
Nothing says “I’m broke” as a dollar print T-Shirt.
And yet, people still buy them.
There’s something ritualistic about covering yourself in the image of what you worship. People get tattoos with Jesus Christ, the Virgin Mary, or a phrase from the Quran, so why shouldn’t you wear a money-themed t-shirt?
This mod hooks up Franklin with one of those shirts, so everyone around him can see how much of a douche he is.
9. Golden Gun
A much more tasteful way to show off your wealth that actually requires big money to be acquired is a 24k gold weapon.
This Golden Gun is based on villain Francisco Saramanga’s iconic weapon from the creatively-named James Bond novel and film “The Man with the Golden Gun.”
Whether you think it’s solid gold or just a collectible from the film, it’d still be extremely expensive. It’s the Rolex of murder tools.
There’s a wide variety of golden weapons available for GTA 5 players. You can get a golden Desert Eagle, an MP40, a Glock, or even a machete!
8. Drug Trafficking Mod v2
Before you can have money, you need to make money.
One of the easiest – if a little bit dangerous – ways to make some big bucks is pushing drugs. After all, your clients are almost guaranteed to become regulars!
This mod re-introduces small drug trafficking missions cut from GTA 5 before release. There’s a dynamic drug market with fluctuating prices, which you can manipulate for mad gains.
Alternatively, you can stay within the boundaries of the law and just sell hot dogs. It’s slower, but it’s unlikely to land you in jail.
7. Loot Bodies
Even if you’re not trying to be destructive, the number of dead bodies left in your wake after the average play session is staggering – so why don’t you at least try to profit from them?
Many aboriginal cultures worldwide believe that killing an animal without utilizing its meat and pelt is an insult to mother nature. In the same way, I think popping caps without at least taking a few dollars and somebody’s iPhone is immorally wasteful.
This script allows you to check your victims’ pockets for money or snacks.
Other similar mods allow you to go dumpster diving or loot vehicles.
It’s the perfect way to get rich fast, adding a nice touch of realism to GTA 5.
6. Counterfeit Cash Business
If checking a corpse’s pockets feels a bit slow, consider stepping up your crimes to the next level and starting a Counterfeit Cash Business.
This operation produces a fair bit of (fake) cash every couple of minutes. The more money you invest into the business, the faster it gets.
To produce counterfeit bills, you’ll have to continually acquire supplies that aren’t available to the general public. Sometimes, they’ll be heavily guarded – so make sure to come prepared.
You also have to deliver the Monopoly money, by van or plane, before you get paid. It’s immersive, to say the least.
5. FLEECA Bank Heists
I know what you’re thinking.
“Stealing heavily guarded materials and risking my life to deliver counterfeit money seems like robbing a bank with extra steps!”
Well, maybe it is, so why don’t you just put on your big boy pants and go rob FLEECA?
This mod allows you to raid all six FLEECA locations all over San Andreas for mad profit – if you get away with it.
Alternatively, you can try other heists by the same author, such as the Paleto Bay Bank Heist and the Diamond Casino Heist.
4. International Bills
Grand Theft Auto 5 has fans worldwide, and people love to see their country represented in-game.
A great way to do that is through currency.
The link above will let you download a texture replacer that swaps in-game dollars with Japanese yens – but that’s not the only option.
Some of the most popular are:
- Brazilian reais
- British pounds
- Indonesian rupiahs
- Australian dollars
- Canadian dollars
- South Korean wons
- Chinese yuans
And most of these are compatible with bank-robbing mods like the FLEECA Bank Heists featured above.
3. Dirty Money System
Something that always struck me as unrealistic is how easy it is to use your “hard-earned” money in GTA 5.
In real life, you’d have to jump through so many hoops to be able to use the money you got from a bank heist, it’s almost more troublesome than earning an honest living.
The Dirty Money System tries to recreate this in GTA 5 by allowing you to create, transport, and hide “dirty money” around the map. You can bury it, throw it in a garbage container, or leave duffle bags lying around while you get the car.
And this mod isn’t complete without The Laundromat – which allows you to pay someone to turn all that dirty money into legal, usable bills.
They’ll take a cut, but keep bringing them cash, and they might offer you a better deal.
2. Enhanced Michael House (Money & Gold)
The whole point of going into the criminal lifestyle is to get mad money.
It stands to reason that a successful criminal like Michael De Santa should have money all over the place.
The Enhanced Michael House helps create a more realistic environment for Michael by filling his home with props demonstrating his ill-gained wealth, including stacks of cash, $100 bills all over the floor, and even a couple gold bars here and there.
It’s like a trashy, 21st-century version of King Midas’ castle!
1. Detailed Money Menu
I have the mild suspicion that most of you came here looking for one thing:
Since I care about my readers, I’ve put the true mod you’re looking for in the #1 spot.
Detailed Money Menu allows you to add anywhere from a thousand to five billion dollars to your inventory from the comfort of an in-game menu – no questions asked.
Does anyone know how to file my taxes for magically-generated money?
