Quickest way to get your strength up in GTA Online

The good news is that getting your strength up in GTA Online isn’t particularly complicated, but it can be time consuming and dangerous. One of the most wellknown methods is to simply get into fights. For every 20 punches that you land on someone, your strength stat will receive a 1% boost.

If you don’t want to run the risk of a trip to the Los Santos hospitals, you can head to Grapeseed Farms and kill cows for the same reward. Otherwise, head to the tennis court or golf course to boost your stats that way.

The best way to increase your GTA Online strength stat involves a friend. Get them to grab a vehicle, and park it beside you. Then, simply start punching the car. This will count as you dealing damage to an opponent, while neither of you take damage.

  1. Join a GTA Online session with a friend.
  2. Let your friend get into a car, and start punching it.
  3. Continue repeatedly punching the vehicle for around 10 minutes until your strength stat has increased.

Players who increase this stat will see a boost in their character’s physical power and resilience, which in turn will provide a substantial increase to your melee damage, ladder climbing speed, agility when playing sports, and a reduction in the damage your character takes.
