[Grand Theft Auto V / GTA 5] Tips and Tricks: Trading Places

This article contains tips and tricks in winning in Trading Places. This game mode is available in Grand Theft Auto V [GTA 5].

Tips and Tricks: Trading Places

Trading Places is an Adversary mode that was added as part of the Grand Theft Autho Online: Further Adventures in Finance and Felony update. The game is played with players fighting one another in variable teams. Basically, when a lower-class trader player (loser) kills a member of the other team, they will trade places with that player becoming the VIP (winner) thus the name of the Adversary Mode. During the duration of the game, deaths will not be shown unlike the other game modes but the trading places will be indicated. They are given fourteen minutes for each round to kill as many as possible and the number of kills by the winner will be displayed on the bottom right of the screen.

Knowing Your Friends and Foe

In the adversary mode, two teams will face up against one another. One being a team full of losers who need to kill the winners in order to become one, and the winners who need to maintain their status at the end of the game. You should be aware of your friends as all of you have the same purpose of taking down the opposing team as well as the fact that your teammates will continuously switch when they kill an opponent and you yourself switching continuously as well to trade places with the other team.

When To Strike

You could always continuously try to kill the opposing team but you know that this will result to you constantly switching teams. So the best option would know when to strike as a mistimed kill will ultimately result to your loss. There is a time limit for the game, wait until the very last second, or kill them a minute before and try your best to hide and maintain the crown.

Maintaining the Crown

Maintaining the crown would prove to be very difficult especially when the timer is almost up. Stay secured when you are a winner in the later minutes of the game as the losers would most likely jump on you. But remember that hiding during the earlier minutes of the game would be pretty useless as you would be more effective fighting back.
