The ATM has many uses and some are more clear than others, especially for new players. The ATM is the go to place for all things including personal cash, warpoints, and gang funds. ATMs can be found all over the island of Altis from small towns, airstrips, banks, and major cities.
There are certain situations in which the ATM will be disabled for use. These situations are the gas station robbery and plane delivery missions. After a gas station robbery you will not be able to access any ATMs for 5 minutes and 3 minutes after completing any plane delivery missions. The ATM also restricts how much money you can transfer to another player at a cap of $999,999 with a fee of %15 as well as how many warpoints with a minimum of 10.
Let's go through each button and GUI on the ATM and explain what each one does.
At the very top of the ATM you will see how much money you currently have stored away.
Next to the money symbol will show how much cash you currently have on you, it’s recommended that you store this away as any cash will drop to the floor if you happen to die with it on you.
