How to Buy Arcades in GTA 5

One of the more underrated ways to make money in GTA Online is by purchasing and operating an Arcade. These businesses are perfect for heists and passive income, as they typically have a safe that can be emptied every in-game day to make roughly $50000. They also come with an optional weapon workshop that can be used to purchase MK II weapons, a drone station that unlocks a remote Nano Drone, and a garage where stolen vehicles can spawn.

Purchasing an Arcade is fairly simple. The first step is to meet Lester Crest at Mirror Park and watch the cutscene with him and Georgina Chang that details the Diamond Casino Heist. From there, players can buy an Arcade from Maze Bank Foreclosures for a fair amount of cash. While there are six Arcades to choose from, we would recommend picking the Videogeddon arcade in Davis as it is closer to the casino and comes with a decent weapon workshop.

One of the best features of an Arcade is that it can be moved to a different location at any time. Simply visit Maze Bank Foreclosures, select the desired location, and confirm the transaction. The cost associated with the move will be equivalent to the difference in price between the old and new properties. Upon moving the Arcade, all games purchased, upgrades, and even the safe can be brought with it to the new site. This is great for those who are still working on the Diamond Casino Heist, or for anyone who wants to expand their business beyond Los Santos.
