Prepare for a whole ‘nother level of Freemode chaos in GTA Online this weekend. To help you gain an edge in the array of new games and challenges in this week’s Freemode Events Update, retailers across Los Santos and Blaine County are slashing prices on a whole host of goods and services, including fast rides, heavy weapons and assistance from the likes of Lester Crest, Merryweather and Pegasus. There’s also a new GTAV gear sweepstakes to enter at Social Club and exclusive in-game t-shirts to unlock each day this weekend. Read on for the full breakdown of everything going on in GTA Online this weekend:
GTA$50K + EXCLUSIVE T-SHIRT FOR PLAYING 5 FREEMODE EVENTS
In case you missed it as part of our announcement earlier this week, if you complete any five of the brand new GTA Online Freemode Events or Challenges by Sunday, you’ll get GTA$50,000 bonus in-game cash plus the exclusive Vapid t-shirt for your in-game character. The GTA$ and t-shirt will be awarded to your GTA Online character by Friday, September 25.
25% VEHICLE DISCOUNTS
Your vehicle choice during the Freemode Events and Challenges can be the difference between winning or losing, surviving or perishing. Whether you’re being shunted out of contention in Penned In, nailing that Longest Jump you scouted out last week, or in a race to bag your place in Kill List Competitive, you’ll want a vehicle that will give you the best possible chance of victory. Pull out your iFruit and place an order for some of our recommended vehicles, which have been handily discounted by 25% for this weekend only. Full list below:
|Armored Kuruma||Entity XF||Mallard||Vestra|
50% DISCOUNTS ON WEAPONS, AMMO & ITEMS
To make sure you’re properly prepared to wreak havoc in Freemode Events like Hot Property, King Of The Castle, Hunt The Beast and others, Ammu-Nation is bringing out the heavy artillery this weekend, slashing prices by half on the Heavy Sniper, Micro SMG, Carbine Rifle and Minigun, as well as all ammo. And protect yourself from insidious onslaughts this weekend with half off on Armor, Bulletproof Helmets and Bulletproof Tires.
50% PHONE SERVICES DISCOUNTS
With the action coming thick and fast, sometime the best way to get by is with a little help from your friends. You may need to lose a pesky Wanted Level or call for a Helicopter to chauffeur you to the Freemode Event location. You also want to maximize your chances in Hot Property or King Of The Castle by arriving on the scene in a Lazer – or perhaps have your Buzzard Attack Chopper delivered nearby to ensure you’ve got the best perspective on the runaway Beast. For these possibilities and more, all Pegasus and Merryweather Phone Services are discounted by 50% this weekend, along with Lester’s Remove Wanted Level service to guarantee you’re never hindered in taking part in the next Freemode Event.
EXCLUSIVE DAILY T-SHIRTS
To celebrate the launch of the Rockstar Editor for PS4 and Xbox One, three new t-shirts featuring some of Vinewood’s biggest blockbusters will be made available this weekend. To grab them, all you need to do is log on to GTA Online once per day throughout the Event Weekend – every day you log on you’ll get a different t-shirt added to your character’s inventory:
Friday, September 18th: Vinewood Zombie
Saturday, September 19th: I Married My Dad
Sunday, September 20th: Die Already
