*SPOILERS IN THE VIDEO! Easy way to get this achievement without actually having the $200 million in your characters. See the video for the guide.

EDIT: Found a new way to get unlimited money (PATCHED - you need to uninstall the game and install it again offline to this to work but you can´t connect online as it will install the update):
BRGoBlue95i was about to post that first video haha. i found that myself last night on accident. thank God for it lol

Homunculus Furyit appears this is patched or it only works when the story mode is finished.

ZOMBl3 KlLL3RxMidget Furyx - i did it when i finished the story mode (saw the credits). Please update me if it worked when you finish the campaign

Homunculus FurySure can
Posted by Homunculus Fury on 22 Nov 14 at 15:28
Homunculus Furyyou do not need to wait for the end of the story mode to do this, I did this after the mission where franklin repos the car from Michael. This video explains it better
You do need to follow the steps for selling the stocks exactly like the video or else it won't work (I used the REDWOOD stock for the glitch)

ZOMBl3 KlLL3RShadowDW3 - it works for me, did you finish the campaign?
Posted by ZOMBl3 KlLL3R on 24 Nov 14 at 15:38
BRGoBlue95I can confirm you can do the buy all and sell all thing during the campaign. Where you spend all your money then sell it right after for like triple what you spent or whatever it is. I did this before I even got to playing as Trevor.

Homunculus Furyyou need to use the stock with the lowest negative return for example (-28.74%) for this trick to work, so it doesn't need to be the merryweather stock.

Homunculus Furyyou do not need to finish the campaign, I've done it and I haven't even unlocked Trevor yet.

ShawnI have to make a correction, it was my mistake. Although xMidget Furyx makes a great point. Lifeinvader at -77% netted me from 2.7 mil to 21 mil in one sell. Amazing.

hunterIVThis isn't working for me. I just lose a dollar every couple sells. Using LifeInvader at -76.94%. Followed the video Midget Fury posted exactly and it doesn't work.
Posted by hunterIV on 28 Nov 14 at 16:57
hunterIVI can confirm that the newest patch fixed this.
Posted by hunterIV on 28 Nov 14 at 17:16
ZOMBl3 KlLL3Ri think both methods work and to let you know i did the one with merryweather yesterday after the patch and it works.
Posted by ZOMBl3 KlLL3R on 28 Nov 14 at 17:25
hunterIVThere was a patch this morning that I got. I was watching the YouTube video Midget posted and everyone was commenting that it no longer works with the patch.

I just uninstalled the game, disconnected from the internet, and reinstalled without the patch. It works without the patch.
Posted by hunterIV on 28 Nov 14 at 20:06
ZOMBl3 KlLL3Ryea just tried and both are patched! thanks for letting me know.
Posted by ZOMBl3 KlLL3R on 28 Nov 14 at 20:36
hunterIVDoing it offline isn't an issue. Just got 1bil+ on all three characters and am loading up the game online now. Still easy if you don't mind spending a few minutes re-installing stuff.

KHKSWhat about digital version? Can the update be avoided?
Posted by KHKS on 19 Dec 14 at 23:20
ZOMBl3 KlLL3Rno it can´t. It only works in disks. :(
Posted by ZOMBl3 KlLL3R on 19 Dec 14 at 23:51
KHKSIs there another way than the glitch? Because I have the digital version
Posted by KHKS on 21 Dec 14 at 05:28
Homunculus FuryYou can work the assassination missions after you complete the story mode. Then keep buying and selling stocks. You won't make money you'll actually lose some money. However it's the fastest way to spend the money
Posted by Homunculus Fury on 22 Dec 14 at 02:07
KHKSHow to make money?
Posted by KHKS on 23 Dec 14 at 06:08
Homunculus FuryFinish the story you will have alot of money. Check this same solution for the 360 version it's better explained there.

RobG88March 15, 2015, uninstalled game, re-installed and within 15 minutes each character has 2.1 billion. I'm 70% thru the game.

Just as a note, as I got to my third character, another stock had moved up higher than Lifeinvader (cluckinbell), if you use that stock (again for me cluckinbell) it does not work, but if you choose Lifeinvader, it worked just fine.

c0wb0i99I refuse to reinstall a 60GB game....

ZOMBl3 KlLL3Rif you want to install it faster go offline.
Posted by ZOMBl3 KlLL3R on 27 May 15 at 17:35
Opus TakiYou don't need to do any of this. When you finish the final mission and your characters have $XX million, simply buy stocks with every penny then immediately sell it again. Rinse and repeat until you've spent $200 million. Technically you're spending the same money over and over again, but it works.

ZOMBl3 KlLL3R@Opus Taki I know that. that is in my guide, i am just saying if you want to get this achievement right away that is the easiest way
Posted by ZOMBl3 KlLL3R on 02 Jun 15 at 07:05
Opus TakiI know it's in there, mate. I didn't think it was very clear for people just looking for the achievement, and given it's the quickest and easiest way to get the achievement -- assuming you're going to complete the game -- I was just making a note on the highest rated solution.
No offence but I was looking for a quick and simple way to get the achievement, not how to make money.
