GTA 5: How to Swap Between Characters in GTA Online
Grand Theft Auto, commonly known as GTA, is an action-adventure game that has been popular since its inception. GTA 5 or GTA V, specifically, is an online multi-player version that allows you to play with multiple characters.
In a previous video, we showed you how to make a new character in GTA 5 online and what you could expect to keep and lose in the process. In this tutorial, we will discuss how you can easily swap between these characters. This is a commonly asked question, and we have put together an ultra quick tutorial to help you swap between your characters with ease.
How to Swap Between Characters in GTA Online
Before you begin, make sure you are in a safe location. To swap between characters, first, navigate to the pause menu and select the ‘Online’ tab. Then, choose the ‘Swap Character’ option. You will be booted from the online mode and directed to the character menu.
From here, you can use the d-pad if you are on a controller or the A and D keys if you are using your keyboard to switch between characters. Once you select the character, the game will load them in GTA Online.
If you want to switch back to your main character, repeat the same process. Go to a safe location, navigate to the pause menu, and select the ‘Swap Character’ option. From the character menu, select the main character, and the game will load them into GTA Online.
How to Create a New Character in GTA Online
If you are new to GTA 5, and don’t have a second character, you can create a new character by following these steps:
- Go to the ‘Online’ tab in the pause menu
- Select ‘Choose Character’
- Click the ‘+ Create Character’ option
- Customize your character, and once you are satisfied, click ‘Continue’
- Name your new character, and click ‘Continue’
You now have a second character, which can be used to complete different missions and earn money.
Sharing Money between Characters in GTA Online
You may wonder whether you can share money between characters in GTA Online. Unfortunately, the answer is no. Your characters’ money is separate, and there is no way to transfer money between them. However, all characters share the same ranking and reputation, meaning any progress made on one character counts towards the others.
Swapping between characters in GTA 5 online is easy once you know how. Just make sure you are in a safe location, navigate to the pause menu, and select the ‘Swap Character’ option. From there, you can select the character you want to switch to, and the game will load them into GTA Online. And if you want to create a second character, simply follow the steps we outlined in this tutorial.
