Launch your criminal career

It all starts with the new Career Builder. For new players or anyone looking for a fresh start, the Career Builder helps prepare you with the gear you need to start your rise through the criminal ranks of Los Santos and Blaine County.

You start by choosing from one of four criminal career paths in GTA Online: Executive, Shooter, Nightclub Owner, or Biker. From there, you’ll receive GTA$4,000,000 to invest in building your illicit business, starting with a business property, vehicle and weapon – with enough coins for some upgrades and maybe a little rest.

Once you’re comfortable with your choices, head straight to the streets of Los Santos to take on the missions and establish your business. Of course, you can expand your business at any time and take on new careers as you progress through the city’s criminal food chain.
