It’s easy to rack up money in The Witcher 3 by slaughtering hundreds and hundreds of bovine.

There are glitches, and there are exploits. This is the latter, as pointed out by YouTuber WhatMyGame. He outlines a quick way to start hoarding cash in a game without very much:

Repeat this over and over, and you’ll be able to afford whatever you want in no time.

Honestly, as tempting as it is, I wouldn’t recommend doing this. You’re not supposed to run around The Witcher 3 with a bunch of money, and it’s more satisfying to earn it from doing cool quests for the people in that world.
