A Guide to the Cocaine Motorcycle Club Business in Grand Theft Auto 5 Online

Grand Theft Auto 5 remains one of the most popular games among gamers worldwide. With constant updates and new content, the game offers hours of endless fun, including the biker businesses in the game’s online version. In this guide, we will discuss the Cocaine Motorcycle Club or Biker Business in GTA 5 Online, its locations, upgrades, sell missions and more.


In this guide, you will learn everything you need to know about running a successful cocaine business in GTA 5 Online. However, we should mention that the biker businesses in GTA Online can be quite challenging to handle solo. It’s doable, but it requires your full attention.

The biggest challenge of running the business solo is the sell missions. If you let the stock levels go above a quarter, you will have to deliver multiple lots of products, which could translate to at least two vehicles and sometimes up to ten individual drops. If the stock levels go above half, you’ll have to deal with three vehicles and up to 15 drops. If it goes above three-quarters, you’ll have to manage four vehicles and up to 20 drops. It’s essential to keep this in mind while playing the game.

Moreover, the sell missions are always in a public lobby, so there’s a massive risk of having products destroyed while they’re left unattended back at base. If you have a group of friends you play with, it’s easier. But if you’re playing solo, you will have your work cut out for you. Finally, running the business is not entirely passive like the passive components of other businesses like the arcade or nightclub.

The Cocaine Business in GTA Online

The cocaine facility is the most expensive Biker Business in GTA Online. Still, it’s also one of the most profitable, earning you roughly 72,750 dollars per hour with upgrades. However, without upgrades, the business will only bring in a mere 30,000 dollars per hour, which is not nearly worth your effort.


Before purchasing a cocaine lockup, you must have a motorcycle club set up. The cheapest motorcycle club you can buy is the grand shapiro clubhouse for 200,000 dollars. Once you have that, you can then purchase your production facility. The cheapest one is located near the ELmoc Blaine County, priced at 975,000 dollars.

If you have the coins, you can purchase a lockup located closer to the town. It’s worth noting that the upgrades’ price is the same regardless of the location you choose.

The business facility has four different location options:

  • Alabo C in Blaine County for $975,000.
  • Toledo Bay also in Blaine County for $1,098,000.
  • Alician Island in South Los Santos for $1,462,500.
  • Morningwood in North Los Santos for $1,852,500, which is the best option since it’s closer to other facilities, including the CEO’s office, agency, and apartment.

Unlike other businesses or facilities, there’s no ability to customize the aesthetic of the building that you purchase. You get what you get.


As we previously mentioned, the business requires upgrades to be profitable fully. The upgraded equipment will cost you $935,000, staff will add an additional $390, and security will cost $570,000. With the improved facility, you should also invest in security to have a more profitable business.

To run this entire business successfully, you will need to at least spend a minimum of $2,872,000 initially, plus an additional $9,000 per hour to cover staff and maintenance. Assuming you can make the maximum hourly of $72,750, it takes approximately 46 hours of real-time gameplay to break even.

Setting Up the Business

Once you purchase the business, head over to the facility and head on in. You’ll get a quick briefing, and once that’s done, head over to the computer. As a club President, click the button to set up and confirm. You’ll be booted back into the lobby, and LJT or Long John Teabag will give you a call. Listen carefully to his brief, and follow the GPS to the waypoint.

After dropping off your vehicle, you’ll get another quick brief, and you’re ready to head back to the table. Once at the computer, set down and log in to head onto upgrades. Purchase all the upgrades to ensure that the business is up and running correctly.

Producing and Resupplying

Purchasing supplies removes you from managing the operation, allowing you to spend your time managing another facility or conducting contact missions. If you must resupply, do it with missions that take between 6 and 10 minutes each. You need at least five missions to fill the business entirely, which is about 30 to 45 minutes of gameplay. Besides buying supplies, you can steal them, which sends you on half dozen missions to collect them.

Sell Missions

Once the production is complete, you’ll need to conduct sell missions. Head over to the computer as Club President, sit down, log in, and select the option to sell stock. There are two options, a quick but cheap mission, or a more extended mission with a better price per unit. Always go for the longer option to maximize profits.

It’s important to pay attention to the stock levels as it could mean delivering multiple lots of products across different vehicles or lots of drops across the map. When you’ve picked your preferred option, wait while it loads and boots you back to the public lobby.

You may receive an interrupt message that requires at least two vehicles to complete the mission. This is doable, especially if you have a friend or you’re in a quiet lobby. LJT will give you another call on the sell mission’s nature. Follow his instructions carefully to avoid griefers and end the mission successfully.

Maximizing Profits

Finally, on maximizing profits, always purchase supplies as it saves time which lets you carry out other missions or tasks to make more significant profits than paying for minimal resupply missions.


In conclusion, the cocaine business in GTA Online is profitable but requires some investment and effort

hi in this video we’re going through the cocaine motorcycle club or biker business in gta 5 online
hi and welcome back my name is Dan and i’m an old grumpy gamer grand theft auto is a truly massive
game between gta 5 and the constant updates from rockstar for gta online there’s no shortage of
new content and interesting things to do join me then as we look at every business in gta 5
online starting with one of the entry-level ones the cocaine business before we dive in if you’re
new to the channel we do how-to guides news and giveaways so consider subscribing and ringing the
bell to stay up to date i’m going to be honest with you the biker businesses in gta online are
not great solo they’re doable but you have to watch them like a [ __ ] and why is that well
the sell missions if you let any of the stock levels go above a quarter that’s just above the
first marker you’ll end up delivering multiple lots of products that’s at least two vehicles
and sometimes up to 10 individual drops let it go above half and you’ll end up with three vehicles
and up to 15 drops and if you let the stock levels go above three quarters that’s four vehicles and
up to 20 drops i can tell you from experience you cannot deliver more than three vehicles worth of
product there’s just not enough time available in the half hour you get for a cell mission and
there’s always a massive risk of having product destroyed while it’s left unattended back at base
especially considering this can only be done in a public lobby if however you’re willing to put in
the work or you have a group of mates you kick around with in gta regularly then you’re good
to go also despite the claims and statements from others about biker businesses this is not a truly
passive business certainly not like the passive components of the arcade nightclub or agency as
i mentioned there are cell missions where you have to carry your goods across the map in public free
roam lobbies and if you want to make any real money then you have to do supply missions too
which are basically fetch quests now assuming you haven’t switched off the video let’s get into it
the cocaine facility and please correct me if i’m wrong is the most expensive biker business
in gta online but if you work it it’ll earn you roughly seventy two thousand seven hundred
and fifty dollars per hour with upgrades and you need those upgrades because without them
it’ll only bring in 30 grand per hour and that’s really not worth the effort so let’s start with
your budget before you can purchase a cocaine lockup you first need to have a motorcycle club
set up the cheapest one you can grab is the grand shapiro clubhouse for 200 000. it’s a bit out of
the way but if you’re on a budget this is the one to go for once you have your clubhouse set up you
can purchase your new production facility the cheapest one is near the lmoc blaine county for
975 000. but again it’s way out in the boondocks and is a bit of a pain so if you have the coin
and grab something a bit closer to town next will be the upgrades and you need the upgrades
upgraded equipment will set you back at 935 000 and staff an additional 390. with the improved
facility you should also invest in security at 570 grand oh and it’s worth noting the price
for the upgrades is the same regardless of which location you choose right so that’s the clubhouse
business and upgrades which comes to a total minimum spend of two million eight hundred and
seventy two thousand plus nine thousand per hour to cover staff and maintenance assuming
you can make the maximum hourly of seventy two thousand seven hundred fifty that means around
about 46 hours of real-world gameplay to make break even so this is definitely a long-term
investment right so looking at the locations in detail you have four different options available
alabo c in blaine county for 975 000 toledo bay also in blaine county for 1 million and 98 000
alician island in south los santos for 1462-5 and finally morningwood in north los santos for 1852-5
which is the one i ended up going for because it’s close to my ceo’s office agency and apartment oh
unlike later businesses and facilities there’s no ability to customize the aesthetic of the building
you simply get what you get once you’ve made your purchase head over to the new facility and head
on in you’ll get a quick briefing and once that’s done head over to the computer make sure you’re a
club president then sit down and log in you’ll be presented with a single option set up click the
setup button and then confirm you’ll immediately be booted back into the lobby and ljt or long
john teabag we’ll give you a bell oh and there’s a working theory that this is actually leicester
using a vocoder and to be honest i can see it okay so follow the gps to the waypoint return
your personal vehicle to storage then jump in the vehicle and head back to the lockup once you’re
there drive into the corona and you’ll be dropped back into the business facility where you’ll get
another quick briefing once you’ve had a wander around head back over to the computer sit down and
log in and head to upgrades next we want to cycle through all of the available upgrades and purchase
them you could skip these but the business is not nearly as profitable or secure without them so you
really want to grab them and with that done you should have a full round of supplies and fully
upgraded facility head back out and spend some time doing contact missions or maintaining other
businesses after a while you can pop back in and see how your operation is running radio the
next thing we need to cover is resupplying your business that is organizing the materials required
to produce your new sellable stock so there’s two ways of doing this you can purchase supplies or
you can seal them purchasing supplies is pretty straightforward head to the pc in your business
sit down and then click the resupply button you’ll see the cost of the item right here is
normally about 75 grand but you can do a partial resupply bit cheaper if you have other businesses
on the go purchasing supplies might be the way to go because it leaves you free to manage the other
facilities the other option is to steal supplies if you go for this one you’ll be booted from the
business back into the lobby where you’ll get another call detailing what you have to do to
collect the supplies this is normally one of about half a dozen missions so listen to it carefully
it is important once you’ve completed the sell mission production will get rolling or continue
if you hadn’t let everything run out okay so after a while you’ll have some stock available and that
means it’s time for a sell mission as mentioned at the start of the video you have to watch this
like a hawk if you allow the stock to go above the first market also you may end up having to do two
runs to sell for the sake of this video though i’m selling a bit earlier than normal so you can see
what goes on so head back to the business premises wander over to the pc sit down log in and click
sell stock you’ll be presented with two sell options a quicker cheaper mission or a longer
mission that will get you a better price we always want to go for the higher amount again
we’ve gone pretty early here for the sake of this video so don’t worry about the low price
so click the higher amount if you’ve let it go too long you may see this interrupt message if you do
it means at least two vehicles which isn’t ideal but still doable if you have a friend or you’re
in a quiet lobby click the confirm button next and you’ll be booted back into the public lobby after
a moment you’ll get another call from ljt listen to it carefully it is important ljt will brief you
on one of half a dozen different sell missions simply follow the instructions to drop off the
goods avoiding any griefers and you’re good as soon as the last package is dropped the money
will be deposited in your account and you can continue putting around in free mode oh and if you
run out of time or you get your cargo destroyed by a griefer you will still get a partial payment
for anything you have delivered okay two more things before we wrap up if you’re going to go
afk while production is going on or you have some other non-businessy stuff to do disband your mc
this will reduce the chance of being ripped off or rated finally on maximizing profits
surprisingly enough you really want to pay for supplies resupply missions take between 6 and
10 minutes each and you need 5 missions to fully resupply so that is at least half an hour but more
likely 45 minutes in that same 45 minutes you can rail through some vip work and a few triple money
contact missions and make way more than the 75 grand that it cost for supplies so you’re making a
more efficient use of your time and that’s it thanks for watching check out the video
at the top for another mc business guide or the one down the bottom for some more old
grumpy game of goodness stay safe wash your hands and we’ll see you in the next video
