Current Status: Working

The Buy Everything For Free glitch allows users to flip textures of items into common Adversary and “Special” Colors like Pink, Purple, Green, Orange, Blue, White, Tan, Black, and Gray. The most popular of these items and what the glitch is known for are the Colored BP Helmets but there are many items that you can flip with this glitch, including: colored bp helmets, forward facing caps, racing gloves, scuba tops, racing tops, joggers, deadline pants, deadline tops, camo tops, and many other items that have adversary colored textures. This glitch requires 2 consoles and is currently only available on PS4. There are many methods going around that demonstrate how to complete this glitch by simply doing a quick search on Youtube. This is a glitch that gets patched and I will do my best to notate if it’s still working in this FAQ. I have done this glitch before but do not currently have a video posted and will likely not post a video on this glitch.

The key pieces to this glitch are the Clothing Items & Textures that help you flip them. The most thorough list of items that I’ve found (with pictures included) comes from on llsilxnt on her website. You can also follow her on Instagram and Twitter. I highly recommend checking out her socials as she has put in a lot of effort to help those that may be struggling find items that they want and she shares other tips & tricks for glitches often. You can also find different textures and examples using that same quick search on Youtube.

Updated Transfer & Non-Transfer Merge Components are available to all visitors in the FAQ.

Components allow you to obtain non-purchasable clothing items in the game like joggers, checkered clothing, and adversary clothing. With component transfer glitches (director mode, sp to mp, creator mode, etc) you are able to create full outfits with components. I maintain a list of what clothing components turn into from Male to Female and Female to Male on my website. You can also view the working methods for component transfers and components + list access on my Youtube.

How to use the lists: 

  • Left 2 Columns = Right 2 columns
    • Example: Section, Female Category, Female Clothing (Female Items) = Male Clothing, Male Category (Male Items)
  • Sort by ANY Column (I suggest last column) or Search for specific items
  • Example: Shoes > Highheeled Boots > Deluxe Midnight Combat Boots = All White Sports Shoes  > Sports Shoes (Female Item = Male Item or Female to Male)

Unknown Components = Unobtainable and/or Untested

You may see notes on the lists that say things like: Hood down, Hood up, under jackets, over pants/shorts, under pants, open, closed, collared, alone, visor up, visor down, R or right, L or left, under, etc. This means that this specific piece of clothing only works in combination with another piece of clothing to turn into the listed component. 

Ex: The Gold & Silver Stuntman shoe components from Male to Female are boots that will only turn into these components when combined with bottoms that go over the boots or with shorts on male. This is why I’ve had to find multiple merge components for each layer to make these combination possible.

You may also see notes in parenthesis after the component with tips, tricks, or suggestions about the specific component. 

Ex: While some of the gun belts from Male to Female do have components, it is not recommended to obtain them as they are locked behind Diamond Casino Heist outfits and would still require merging after transfer. Instead, transfer merge shirt components or torso 2, obtain/unlock belts on female, and merge onto the outfit you want. There many methods on my Youtube channel.

For more complex merging or component combinations, I recommend visiting the below Youtube channels that show examples as the lists will not be truly helpful for these more advanced items or outfits.

*Gender Swap Glitch uses “items”, which are different from components as it is an entirely different glitch. Items are different from components. These are typically clothing items that you can unlock and purchase directly from the store when it is available. Glitches like the BEFF flip uses Textures or colors for obtaining components.

Clothing Textures Flip

Check out the item list for the Gender Swap glitch by WildBrick142. Some of the items you can unlock are beer hats, special tops, special hats, festive clothing (may only be wearable during the festive season), and other limited release items.

Items are different from components. These are typically clothing items that you can unlock and purchase directly from the store when it is available. Components allow you to obtain non-purchasable clothing items in the game like joggers, checkered clothing, and adversary clothing. You do not create outfits when obtaining items, though there is a component transfer glitch associated with the Gender Swap glitch. With component transfer glitches (director mode, sp to mp, creator mode, etc) you are able to create full outfits with components.

Merging components is done in a Rockstar Versus Job called Crooked Cop when you add a merge component onto an outfit. Merge components are typically items that appear as invisible or that do not have opposite components on the male/female character. This is typically done when transferring merge components from one character slot to the other but there are ways to do this with other popular glitches like DMO, Magic Slot outfits, or with non-transfer components.

The method to merge the t-shirt layer or “Torso 1” without doing a component transfer glitch is available on my Youtube channel with a text tutorial in the description.

Examples of Torso 1 items that can be added to certain tops and removed for merging are below as well as ideas for what you can merge. Please note, only Torso 1 can currently be merged with this method until the community finds other things 🙂

Torso 1’s you can use to create merge in A Titan Of A Job:

Suit Vests (Under Jacket)
Utility Vests (Over Tops)
Designer Shirts (Under Jacket)

Torso 1’s you can merge in Crooked Cop:

Paramedic Belts – https://husky-dev.de/jobs *PS4 Only Jobs. Super easy, just add an earpiece when you load into job and quit through phone.
Gun Belts – Complete Casino Heist Missions while wearing outfits to unlock & purchase at clothing store counter.
Racing & Air Racing Suit – Purchase at Clothing Store counter.
Trash Vest – https://youtu.be/hoYbqxknikc *green is blacklisted on won’t save.
Half Turtlenecks – Equip any Boating Blazer + Turtleneck + Armor Overcoat Blazer Bib – Equip Parka (Open through Interaction Menu), go to Overcoat Blazers and select style
+ Basically ANY Top that you can put under a jacket

Merging components is done in a Rockstar Job (current jobs) when you add a merge component onto an outfit. Merge components are typically items that appear as invisible or that do not have opposite components on the male/female character. This is typically done when transferring merge components from one character slot to the other but there are ways to do this with other popular glitches like DMO, Magic Slot outfits, or with non-transfer components. The components in green will also work for Save Wizard/Ped merging.

There is a condensed list of the most commonly used merge components with info on each layer below but there are hundreds of items that merge on both characters. My goal is to always only share/highlight older clothing items if possible, as often new dlcs will fill in some of the ‘gaps’ in the prior dlcs opposite component, thus not allowing them to merge anymore.

Merge LayerAKAComponentsExamples/Info
Merge JacketTorso 2M to F:
Sea Green Puffer Jacket, Blue Santo Capra T-Shirt (Alone), Camo Sports Tank (Alone)

F to M:
Peach Camo Closed Work Jacket, Navy Blue Striped Cropped Leather Jacket, Sea Green Puffer Jacket
All Open Closed Jackets, Deadline Tops, All Racing/Air Racing/Biker/Bodysuit Tops.
On Female: Most Tucked T-Shirts, Bikini Tops, Bustiers, and Torn Tees/Tanks.
Merge ShirtTorso 1M to F:
Camo Sports Tank (under jacket), Ocean Stripped Business Shirt (under any Suit Jackets), Black Heavy Utility Vest

F to M:

Orange Bikini Top, Leopard Print Party Tank (under jackets)
Juggernaut Armor, Trash Vest, All Gun Belts, Paramedic Belt, Utility Vest, Racing/Air Racing Suit Belts
Merge BottomLegsM to F: Tropical Print Running Sports Shorts (Short or under), Blue Continental Suit Pants (Over)

F to M: Spotted Muscle Sports Pants (Over), Pink Heart Stockings, Purple Lace Panties, Sand Cargo Sports Shorts
Different pants that go over or under shoes may turn your shoes into different components so pay attention to what the list calls for.
Merge ShoeShoesBoth:
Pink Hi Top Sneakers
The same shoes that go “over” some pants or go “under” pants or combined with shorts will often give you 2 different types of shoes. The best example are the deadline shoes components for male and the stuntman canvas shoes for female.
Merge GloveGlovesM to F:
Light Woodland Tactical Gloves

F to M:
Red & Gray Armored Gloves
Racing Gloves, Biker Suit Gloves, and any purchasable gloves. The same gloves work to merge gloves on both male and female. You cannot merge all gloves with all tops. Ex: Long Gloves on female still follow the same standards and will only save with certain tops.
Merge NeckwearNeck AccessoriesM to F:
Green Scarf, Gold Coin Pendant Chain, Black Bead Necklace, Blue Hatch Straight Tie

F to M:
B&W Deco Earrings, Platinum LC Necklace Chain, Blue Hatch Stripey Tie
Scarves, Handcuffs, IAA Badge, Necklaces, Paramedic Badge or Stethoscope, Ties, Certain Earrings, Sweatbands, Leather Straps, Flight Tube.
*To check if an accessory is neckwear, put on a desert scarf and then try to put it on. If the scarf disappears, that item is considered neckwear.
Merge CuffsOther AccessoriesM to F:
n/a
F to M:

n/a
Cuffs, Watches that aren’t neckwear. Cuffs on the right (R) are truly cuffs and those on the left (L) are watches.
Merge ArmorCEO/Associate Armor & Standard ArmorM to F:
Green Flat Associate Armor, Blak Heavy CEO Armor, Moss Long Suit Jacket + Ocean Striped Business Shirt + Inventory Body Armor (merge jacket layers onto glitched half body armor)

F to M:

Heavy Armor (with open jackets only) (Available at Ammunation or in Inventory – will not work with every top combination)
Armor is tricky and will not typically merge with just any top. Armor will also be removed from outfits if you change the pants on that outfit, so that limits merging armor even further. Adding Inventory Body Armor that you can purchase at Ammunation over any merge top will allow you to merge tops onto that armor.
Merge LogosCrew Emblems, Race Logos, T-Shirt LogosM to F:
Washed Patched Denim Biker Jacket + Large Back Crew Emblem (merge jacket layers onto emblem)

F to M:

Washed Patched Denim Biker Jacket + Large Back Crew Emblem (merge jacket layers onto emblem)
Adding a crew emblems or logos onto a top will allow you to merge tops onto that emblem or logo; however, it does not always save. Large Back Crew Emblems can be merged using the patched denim biker jackets or cuts on male & female that don’t have components. You can then merge any top that acts as a jacket onto that crew emblem. Logos react differently and the same crew emblem on 2 tops can turn into something totally different depending on the top so this is a toss up. Varies greatly.
Merge Hats/MasksHelmets, Hats, MasksBoth:
n/a
It’s not necessary to merge hats/masks as you can glitch them onto any outfit using the telescope and other various glitches.

Merging is fairly confusing if you are not familiar with how it works. Important things to note are:
1. You need at least 2 slots to merge components. The slots can be saved outfits or your “Current Outfit” or the outfit you wear into job and Slot 1 Or Slot 20.
2. You can merge from the slot BEFORE or AFTER the save outfit that has merge components on it. Ex: Merge “Slot 2” (component you want) into “Slot 1” (merge component outfit).
3. Purchase a rebreather or earpiece at Ammunation prior to going into job. The rebreather will work to bring most outfits out of job but if you have on a hat that you want to save, use an earpiece instead. Scroll right for rebreather and left for earpiece.
4. Access transferred but non-clickable outfits/merge outfits in job set to Player Owned Clothing, add a rebreather/earpiece, quit through phone, and immediately start Mission A Titan of A Job to make changes in Ammunation
5. If you are wearing blacklisted or invisible components not compatible in freemode, you may not be able to wear them online even after opening or making changes to the outfit in Ammunation
6. You cannot merge an item onto something else that does not have a component or a component that you are not able to purchase separately. Ex: On male, white tron shoes and white joggers do not have a component, therefore, you cannot merge these two items together. On female, pink heart stockings do not have a component and the pink stuntman canvas shoes component (silver stuntman canvas shoes) is attached to bottoms that you cannot change. Because of this, you cannot merge these 2 items together due to not being able to add a merge bottom onto the silver stuntman canvas shoes.
