When you first start Grand Theft Auto Online you have to create your own character for the multiplayer. First you’ll have to choose your heritage. This will determine how your character will look. But don’t worry too much as you’ll be able to change your hairstyle, haircolor and beard later on for yourself.
Afterwards you’ll have to choose the lifestyle of your character. You have different points where you can spend time on which will determine how good you are at driving or shooting for example. The chosen lifestyle will also effect your look as well as the clothes you’ll be starting out with!
You have 24 hours to spend on 7 different lifestyle attributes. You can freely distribute these 24 hours among the 7 attributes to create a character according to your playstyle. There is only one requirement: your character needs at least 4 hours in the sleeping slot. Otherwise you can choose whatever you want.
We compiled a list on how the different attributes will effect your stats. It’s tough to get an overview on your stats on the fly so this might help you to plan ahead!
