GTA 5 ranking system is an accumulative rank meaning you can only improve.
The system is based off RP, Reputation, or experience.
Level 999 is the highest rank (According to GTA forums)
The achievement is only to reach level 50
Level 50 = 448,800 RP
You obtain RP upon completion of any activity in Los Santos online game modes.
The REPLAY has been patched!
You gain extra RP for playing missions on hard so select it if you can handle the heat.
You also gain RP per kill which I've come to find out that every kill equals the same, even AI. Also if you evade police you gain a little RP boost.
If you get kill streaks and double kills you also get a double bonus for RP.
If you play with a crew you receive bonus RP as well.
As your rank increases so does the amount of RP that you earn on missions.
In certain game modes you earn more XP for your performance or doing certain things that secretly add to your RP bar, such as in deathmatch after killing someone they dont just drop money but little orange balls of RP.
Quick methods to gain some fast RP
If you host you can set 1 lap gta payouts vary depending on how many people are in your lobby. You will get 600 - 700 RP a race by yourself. The best thing to do is host a race with 4 of your friends as 4th place gets 700 RP and of course 1st 2nd and 3rd gets more. Additionally if you win against humans it adds to your car upgrades so you can go even faster. Criminal justice is the shortest track averaging 30 seconds a race. Downtown Underground in super cars and traffic disabled, he also mentioned as your rank increases you start to gain more RP for the races. You get bonuses for passing opponent's (overtaking), cruising directly behind someone ahead of you (slipstreaming), beating your best time (lap), starting from last finishing in first.
