The city of Los Santos is a dangerous place, so you are going to want to know how to hire a bodyguard in GTA Online. GTA has continued to expand ever since its launch back in 2013, and even received new story DLC as of last month. However, if you are jumping into things for the first time in a while, then you'll have a few things to wrap your head around if you are looking for a little extra protection. Here's our guide on how to hire a bodyguard in GTA Online.

GTA Online Bodyguards: What Is A Bodyguard?

A CEO followed by two bodyguards in GTA Online.

A bodyguard in GTA Online is exactly as you'd expect. A bodyguard is a position another player can take to earn some additional cash while playing through some missions with friends or other players. The aim is to be that extra bit of muscle to protect your employer.

As GTA is obviously filled with untrustworthy characters, a bodyguard that betrays their employer will be hunted down by every other bodyguard in the area for five minutes, so you better come prepared for a fight.

How To Hire A Bodyguard In GTA Online: Register As A VIP/CEO

You need to register as  CEO before hiring a bodyguard in GTA Online.

Before you get to hiring a bodyguard in GTA Online, you'll need to be a VIP. If you've bought a CEO office - which is part of how to start The Contract in GTA Online - then you'll no longer be able to register as VIP.

That role will be replaced by a CEO, which essentially functions the same but with some additional features and abilities. Either way, you'll want to check out our guide on how to register as a CEO in GTA Online. The process is the same regardless of whether you register as a CEO or VIP.

How To Hire A Bodyguard In GTA Online: Securoserv CEO

Select Hire Associate to hire a bodyguard in GTA Online.

Now that you've registered as a CEO or VIP, you can get to hiring your bodyguard but again, depending on which position you are in, there are some slight differences. You can register as a VIP for just four hours, after which there is a 12 hour cooldown period. On the other hand, the CEO has no time limit or cooldown. 

One thing that is the same is that you'll want to open up the interaction menu, which is done with the touchpad on PlayStation, the view button on Xbox, and M on PC. Once here select the Securoserv CEO or Securoserv VIP option. In this menu, you will be able to select Hire Associates for CEO or Hire Bodyguard for VIP. Associates function in the same way as bodyguards, and only really hold a different name.

Now that you've selected the Hire Associates options, you have the choice between nearby, looking for work, or friends. Nearby will offer it to those in your lobby; looking for work is an option players can select under the register as CEO option; and friends obviously let you offer it to your friends that you are playing with.
