Preliminary information

Before going into the details of how to buy an arcade on GTA , I think you might be interested in learning more about what this building allows you to do.

Well, the arcade is nothing more than a structure from which it is possible to plan the shots , or the “great robberies”, which can be carried out in GTA Online and which often involve the participation of multiple users. A games room therefore serves to guarantee an operational base and to use the gaming machines as a “cover”.

A key figure that revolves around all this is that of Lester , a character that you will surely have come to know, if you have completed the Story mode of GTA 5. In any case, if you do not do it, it will be Lester himself who will ask you to buy an arcade (who said you should take a walk around Mirror Park ?).

Obviously, in order not to get too many spoilers, I will not tell you why, but just know that the purchase of an arcade is very important for the purpose of completing certain tasks in GTA Online.

That said, let’s ban the chatter and see how to go about buying this building.

How to buy GTA 5 arcade

After explaining what the arcade is for in GTA Online, I’d say you’re ready to take the action and buy the building within the Rockstar title.

To proceed, once logged into GTA Online in GTA 5 , open your character’s mobile phone (by pressing, for example, the up arrow on PS4 ), select the Internet box and go to the FINANCES AND SERVICES section . Here you will find various portals that allow you to carry out myriads of activities.

What you are interested in is the Foreclosure Maze Bank website . Press, therefore, first on the box relating to the latter and then on the ENTER button . You will then find yourself in front of a map in which there are various types of buildings to buy.

If you have looked at the top right, you will have noticed that there is a filter called GAMES ROOM : you just have to click on it, choose the games room you want to buy and press the BUY button .

In any case, before completing the purchase, I advise you to analyze the map thoroughly. In fact, the least expensive arcades are often those furthest away from the locations of the missions you will have to carry out. This could cause you some “headaches” when hitting, as you may have to travel a long way each time.

If you want some advice, it is generally good to forget about the arcades present at the top of the map, opting instead for those present in the urban area, below . Just to give you a concrete example, in the past Rockstar has given an arcade in Paleto Bay to members of Prime Gaming (formerly Twitch Prime).

The latter was very useful for novice users, as it cost $ 0 instead of the millions that are usually required for arcades, but the more experienced players of GTA Online preferred to choose other structures, located in more strategic areas .

For the rest, I remind you that before completing the purchase you can customize the game room from various points of view, from the style to the walls , passing through the extras . I advise you to read carefully the descriptions of the changes you can make to the structure you have chosen, as there could be some nice surprises. But remember that you pay for extras.

In any case, if you have no idea how you can reach the money needed to purchase an arcade within the Rockstar title, I remind you that there are often monetary bonuses that are given to users simply for logging in. to GTA Online , perhaps by linking the aforementioned Twitch Prime account .

For all the details of the case, I recommend that you take a look at my tutorial on how to connect Twitch Prime to GTA . Also, you might be interested in my guide on how to make money on GTA Online .

Set up the games room

How do you say? Have you figured out how to buy the arcade but don’t know how to start using it? No problem, I’ll explain immediately what are, generally, the activities that GTA Online players carry out immediately after buying a building of this type.

Well, after going to the games room you purchased, a movie will start that will introduce you to the structure. I don’t want to give you too many spoilers about it, but inside the games room you will find a computer : the latter will allow you to access all the possibilities at your disposal.

So sit on the appropriate chair (by pressing, for example, the right arrow on PS4) and use your PC (by pressing, for example, the X button on PS4 ). By pressing the START button , preparation missions will start. More precisely, initially there will be various activities related to the setting up of the arcade , which will lead you to transform it into a good headquarters for the shots.

Unfortunately, I cannot be more precise about the set-up missions as they can vary from structure to structure. However, these are usually operations where equipment needs to be recovered, for example.

In any case, you don’t have to worry: the game will explain everything step by step. Now you just have to set up your games room properly, and then move on to the shots. If you are interested in learning more about the latter, I invite you to take a look at my guide on how to make heists on GTA Online .

For the rest, since you are a fan of the Rockstar title, I would recommend that you take a look at the page of my site dedicated to GTA , where you will find several other tutorials that could be for you.
