All GTA, all day, since 2012

The August 3 GTA Online update will make you want to call Lamar

It's time to hit up Lamar if you'd like to make some extra cash in GTA Online.

As eager fans hold their breath for the much-anticipated release date news of Grand Theft Auto 6, Rockstar Games continues to engage its loyal Grand Theft Auto 5 fanbase with its weekly updates. The week of August 3-10 may not bring much in terms of grand, game-changing content, but its offer of boosted rewards and bonuses will keep players busy in the high-octane streets of Los Santos.

GTA Online's weekly updates have become a staple of the game, consistently introducing new vehicles, activities, and bonuses to keep its sandbox as fresh as possible. The August 3 patch update, while not particularly loaded with groundbreaking features, still packs in some exciting goodies for players.

Check out our round-up below of everything that's new in GTA Online from August 3-10:

  • 3X GTA$ and RP on Ron Contact Missions
  • 3X GTA$ and RP on Taxi Work
  • 2X GTA$ and RP on Short Trips
  • 2X GTA$ and RP on Sumo (Remix)
If Lamar isn't up to your speed, you can try checking in with Ron to see if he's got some things to do for you.

Diamond Casino Podium

  • The game has introduced a new vehicle to the Diamond Casino podium: the Declasse Drift Yosemite. This beast of a vehicle is a modified twist on the real-life Chevrolet C10 pickup truck. It ordinarily costs a hefty $1,308,000, but this week, luck might be on your side, and you could land this power-packed vehicle with a simple spin of the Diamond Casino's prize wheel.

Car Meet Prize Ride

  • The flashy Grotti Turismo R, GTA's version of the real-life, limited-edition Ferrari F150 (LaFerrari), is the coveted GTA Online prize ride. Under regular circumstances, this would set you back by a cool $500,000 in-game. But for those players who have the skills to finish in the top two in LS Car Meet races for two days running, this high-end supercar can be yours for free.
  • The following cars are available to check out for free at the LS Car Meet:
    • Pfister Comet SR - Porsche 997 GT2 RS
    • Karin Calico GTF - Toyota Celica
    • Bravado Greenwood - 1977-1978 Dodge Monaco and Plymouth Fury


  • Schyster Deviant (Muscle) - 50% off
  • Vapid Peyote Gasser (Muscle) - 40% off
  • All Apartment Properties - 40% off
  • Hangar Properties - 40% off
  • Hangar Upgrades and Modifications - 40% off

  • Willard Eudora (Muscle) - 30% off
  • Bravado Greenwood (Muscle) - 30% off
  • Minigun - 30% off (exclusive to GTA+ members)
  • Widowmaker - 30% off
Taxi jobs are en vogue as part of the August 3 update.

While this week's update may seem a bit tame compared to the massive drops we've seen in the past, it's a clear reflection of Rockstar Games' ongoing commitment to keeping the game lively and rewarding for its players.

So, as we anxiously wait for the release of GTA 6, let's not forget to enjoy the current in-game events and bonuses, and of course, keep our fingers crossed for that lucky spin on the Diamond Casino's prize wheel!
