When Rockstar Games released the 1.02 patch for Grand Theft Auto Online on Friday to fix connection issues with GTA V's multiplayer, it also disabled the "replay" button on a select number of high money-earning missions. Gamers being gamers though have found a way around that.
The most popular mission to replay right now in GTA Online is the "Violent Duct" mission that is provided by Gerald. Players can quickly earn $9,000 in-game dollar in under two minutes with the mission with over 1,000 Reputation Points (RP).
Before the patch, when the mission is completed players simply had to press the "replay" button to quickly jump into the mission again. That was disabled by Rockstar Games on some missions as a stopgap measure to keep players from farming it but here's how to keep replaying it.
When the mission is completed, vote to "Like" the mission by pressing the Triangle button on the PS3 or Y button on the Xbox 360 controller. Then you and your teammates need to press the R2 button on the PS3 or RT button on the Xbox 360. Once that is done, the mission should automatically restart.
"Violent Duct" is a level 15 mission so you or a friend that invites you need to have reached that level for Gerald to offer it to you when you call him on the in-game phone. It doesn't matter what difficulty level you play the mission at either as it will always earn $9,000.
