Rockstar confirms halving GTA Online repeat mission payouts

Rockstar has confirmed over the weekend that it has reviewed the payouts players get for playing GTA Online missions more than once, reducing it by 50%. This confirmation comes after many fans blamed the developer for introducing this new alteration on the latest game’s patch without making any mention of it.

The following statement can be read on Rockstar’s support site:

For those of you inquiring about mission payouts, there was a change that reduces payouts by 50% after a repeat of the mission. The first time you play and beat the mission, you will get the full amount. Subsequent replays will see a payout amount reduced by half. This is to keep the game balanced as well as encourage the exploration of new missions and content in the game.

We understand players do like to enjoy a mission multiple times, so rather than remove the possibility of doing so, we’ve allowed replays of these missions at a reduced payout. Many players can get very good at a mission and beat it much faster in consecutive tries, so we’ve adjusted these payouts to match that case.

This also ties in to our ongoing discussion of replay availability for NPC missions, in which we are taking community feedback as well.

We apologize that there was not full clarity about this in the patch notes; however, hopefully this note will clear things up. If there are any additional questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

This new change comes just days before GTA Online players will receive GTA$250,000 in their in-game bank account, the first of two payments Rockstar has promised players to makeup for the hiccups the game has suffered since it first launched on 1st October.
