Although GTA Online isn’t an RPG, it does let players manage and improve various stats of their characters. One of the most important and difficult to increase stat is strength. So here are some easy ways for players to get their strength up in GTA Online

There is a lot to do in GTA Online from, treasure hunting to getting the fastest car for free. But fast cars and maxed-out weapons alone won’t help you complete your missions. You also need to ensure that your character’s stats are high enough to give you a physical advantage over other players.

Unlike the previous games of this franchise, GTA Online doesn’t feature any usable gyms, so players cannot upgrade their characters the typical way. And since, fist fights in GTA Online are a common occurrence, having higher strength comes in handy.

But don’t worry if your stat is a little low, here’s the easiest way to give it a significant boost as fast as possible.

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 well-known 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 punch 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 deal damage to an opponent, while neither of you takes 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.

As you can see above, there are plenty of benefits if you get your strength up in GTA Online, so players should take some time the next time they are online in Los Santos and increase this stat to make their character better than ever before.
