Before we start, it’s crucial to let you know that acquiring the Acid Lab is a little different when compared to getting other businesses. We say this because it isn’t as though players can simply go out and buy it. Instead, they have to complete a total of 6 First Dose Dax contact missions.

Step 1: Completing the First Dose Missions

The first mission is, of course, the Welcome to the Troupe mission which is started by going to the D icon on the map and speaking with Dax. After that, players have to complete five additional missions which are listed below:

  1. Designated Driver
  2. Fatal Incursion
  3. Uncontrolled Substance
  4. Make War not Love
  5. Off the Rails

The Off the Rails mission is arguably the most important one for those players who want to get the Acid Lab, as this mission tasks them with stealing the Brickade 6×6, which will eventually serve as the base of operations for your little Acid Lab gig. 

Step 2: Customizing the Brickade

Directly after stealing the vehicle, the setup mission for the Acid Lab will begin.

Remember Dax? Yeah, that guy will tell you that there are three different locations you can visit to find the Acid Lab equipment you have to attach to the Brickade you just stole. Fortunately, you don’t have to visit every single location as just going to one will do the trick since the option to go to the Freakshop will be unlocked.

You’ll find Mutt at the Freakshop who’ll attach the Acid equipment to the truck. The total cost of doing this will come to $750,000, but the business has the potential to make up that money and more relatively quickly so there’s no need to worry too much.

Optional Step: Further Upgrading the Acid Lab Equipment

You can use the Acid Lab business after completing the two steps we mentioned above, but if you want to make some more money, there’s always the option to call Dax and ask him about the Fooliganz jobs. These side missions allow players to upgrade the Acid Lab equipment, which results in a higher profit you can make by selling products.

Now for the final step, which is how the Acid Lab business even works. Similar to most other businesses in the game, all you have to do is complete supply missions and then sell the supply when you have the stock. Of course, you can also just buy the supplies or take advantage of the option that boosts acid production to make even more of a profit with this business.

Like other businesses in Grand Theft Auto Online, it’s difficult to make any passive income using the Acid Lab. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t potential to make the big bucks. The only thing you should remember is that it costs $60,000 every time you request supplies for this business, and you’ll have to resupply three times to get a full stock. The only exception to this is if you upgrade your equipment which costs $250,000. While this is a hefty amount, the value of the full supplies goes up significantly too.

This concludes everything you need to know about acquiring the Acid Lab in GTA 5, or GTA Online, and how you can use it. We recommend you run this business alongside the Motorcycle one for maximum efficiency. For more about GTA, check out Is GTA Cross Platform? (Explained).
