How to Make Money on Grand Theft Auto Liberty (GTA) City Stories

Updated on October 10, 2018


Unlike other GTA games money is less easy to come by in Liberty City Stories. However, if you know where to go you can make plenty.

Doing Missions

This is the most obvious way to make money as you have to do missions to progress. On completion of missions you will be paid usually a few thousand.

However, some missions can be very expensive to do as every time you redo them you have to stock up on ammo. The worst missions are the ones which require the use of the rocket launcher which costs $9000 a go.

Scrapping Cars

If you steal a car or bike and dump it in the crusher you will be paid for every car crushed. The crusher is located in Harwood on the first island (Portland) - where you killed JD.

You can greatly increase the amount of money made my crushing cars by doing the scrapheap challenge. To do this you need to find a bike in the scrapyard.

Killing People

Often when you kill someone you will get the money they drop (remember to actually pick it up). The amount varies but in general you will have to kill a lot of people to make much.

The best place to do this is in the underground (where you catch the train). You not use guns to do this as you will be spending as you earn. The best thing to use is a chainsaw or samurai sword.

Note: make sure you check for cops. You can't collect money well when at 4 or 5 stars. Even at 2 they are shooting you.

Selling Bikes and Cars

Near the scrap yard on the first island you can sell cars and at the bottom of the second island you can sell bikes. I advise selling bikes over cars.

The quickest way to make money selling bikes is to sell the scooter. To sell it all you need to go extremely slow and don't even bump it. To sell the PG 600 you need to go really fast and for the Sanchez you need to find asphalt (not far from the shop) and go up and down it for a while.

Finding Cars for Love Media

Once you are on the second island you can steal cars and take them to a garage near the bottom of the second island. They usually pay up to£3,189.46To make the most money on the cars you need to be careful not to scratch them before delivery - if you damage them go to the pay and spray.

If you are in the middle of something and find a car love media want: drop it off at one of your garages and sell it later. Once you have found all of the cars you will get a tidy sum (the hardest to find is a hearse).


Basically they don't pay very much (few hundred) but are a lot of fun.

Money Cheat

If you want to take all of the fun and acheicement out of playing you can get a quarter of a million istantly by using the money cheat:

L1, R1, TRIANGLE, L1, R1, CIRCLE, L1, R1

Save Money

Some ideas:

  • Collect hidden packages as these will make free guns appear at your safe-house
  • Instead of buying the rocket launcher (expensive) try instead using the fire truck to batter the target.
  • After wasting money use soft reset (kind of cheating, really)
  • The pay and spray on Staunton Island is often free
