Whether it's the real world or the virtual one of video games, money makes that world go round.

The urge to become filthy rich is a universal constant in every genre of game, but unfortunately, it's just as common that reaching the status of the 1% takes a lot of time and effort that you may not necessarily want to devote.

Luckily, get-rich-fast schemes exist in plenty of video games, and unlike their real-life counterparts, they actually work! A simple exploit or smart use of the game's mechanics can turn your broken character into a powerful mogul with more money than they know what to do with.

So if you're not afraid of messing with the game's economy a bit and the hole in your heart can only be filled with shiny coins, here are some quick and easy exploits made especially for you.

10. Underwater Briefcase - Grand Theft Auto V

Earning money in the early stages of Grand Theft Auto V can be a hassle. Until you finish your first heist, your best options are killing random civilians and completing missions, which don't bring in a lot of profit.

Well, if you don't want to wait to start recklessly spending your funds on random things, there's actually a quick and easy exploit that can earn you an infinite amount of money, and best of all, it can be done as early as the first act of the game.

To make the exploit work, you need to unlock the ability to switch characters after the mission "Complications." After you can switch between Michael and Franklin seemlessly, you want to take one of them to an underwater money briefcase hidden off the north-western shore of Los Santos.

The stash will net you a few grand, but this is actually where the exploit is only starting.

Once you claim the case, you want to immediately switch characters and then do it again, which will cause the briefcase to instantly reappear on top of your character.

Now, just rinse and repeat until you're a millionaire, and neither Michael nor Franklin have a reason to go heisting anymore.
