Grand Theft Auto 5 is celebrating the Fourth of July weekend with a special multiplayer event. During this event, players can progress twice as fast and get some exclusive loot.
All GTA Online Jobs played from today to July 6th will grant double Reputation Points. If you play a special Independence Day Online Event Playlist, you'll get twice as much GTA $ as usual in addition to the bonus RP. The Independence Day playlist includes Jobs like Grand Senora Desert (LTS), Guns and Gasoline (Parachuting), Mud, Sweat and Gears (Land Race) and Road Tripping (Team Deathmatch).
Rockstar Games will be bringing back the in-game items that debuted during their last Independence Day event. However, this time they're a lot cheaper:
Merchants across Los Santos are also restocking all their original Independence Day Special inventory, with a 25% discount on everything, including vehicles like The Liberator monster truck and Sovereign motorcycle, the Firework Rocket Launcher and its ammo, plus an assortment of red-white-and-blue gear including Hats, T-Shirts, Masks and more.
Next week, Rockstar has a different celebration planned. The Ill-Gotten Gains Social Club Event Weekend will kick off on July 10th and run until the 12th. During these days, special crate drops will appear throughout the game world. Inside, players can find Independence Day gear like the Fireworks Launcher and Fireworks. You'll be able to buy the Sovereign and Liberator at a discount as well.
As the name implies, Ill-Gotten Gains Social Club Event Weekend is a commemoration of the Ill-Gotten Gains Part 2 Update. This update, launching on July 8th, adds a long list of items for GTA 5 players to purchase in multiplayer. Here's everything that was added:
The event sadly won't be adding any more heists. Rockstar has suggested that we'll have to wait a long time for any additional heists, assuming they even make them:
For those asking for more Heists, please understand that Grand Theft Auto Online Heists were a tremendous undertaking so it’s not the sort of thing where we can easily create and publish additional Heists like other Job modes and missions. We are, however, working on other cool updates for GTA Online that you can expect over the coming months.
