Participating in Races
The best way to earn a lot of Reputation Points is by participating in the races available, as even if you do not win the race you will still be rewarded with heaps of RP.
Join a Crew
When first loading up your GTA: Online mode, the first thing I would recommend is to either join an existing crew or create your very own!
Completing jobs for various different characters throughout the game whilst being part of your crew will reward you with additional RP which can be used to level up.
Escaping the Cops
Another great way to earn some additional RP and have a bit of fun at the same time is by teasing the cops onto your tail and making a hasty getaway. Similarly to the single-player mode, cops will hunt you down for criminal and unacceptable activity.
Read up on our Vehicle guide to ascertain the best vehicle for each potential getaway.
Participating in a parachute jump is a pretty good way of earning 600-700RP within a few minutes. This activity involves jumping from a helicopter and weaving through the markers to gain those extra Reputation points. You can earn unlimited RP from Parachuting, so all you need to do is to keep replaying the activity and you will gain RP each time you play it.
Immediately after entering an isolated vehicle you should notice a slight raise in your RP bar at the top of the screen. You may notice that your wanted level may rise after stealing this vehicle, quickly lose those cops for additional RP.
A great feature of GTA Online is that you can sell the cars that you steal to earn some quick cash. Unfortunately you can only sell these cars to Los Santos Customs once every in-game day (48 minutes in real time) however sports cars are not accepted so at least you don’t have to waste time hunting out the most costly vehicle in Los Santos, any run of the mill vehicle will do. Which will generally get around $8,000-$10,000 a pop.

Killing random people
Killing passers by is a good way to raise you RP levels and earn some extra money in the process.
Scattered across the map on GTA Online are jobs which different players will invite you to complete with them in order to earn Reputation Points in large quantities. Open up your mini-map to get extra details on each mission that is available to you, including the game mode, brief description, location and the number of player’s allowed.
