Gunrunning Takes Center Stage In Newest GTA Online Event


Rockstar must be in the mood for a bit of nostalgia, with this week's Grand Theft Auto Online bonuses focusing on Gunrunning content.

Alongside Gunrunning-focused double reward bonuses and discounts, items and activities from other updates also get some attention, and Rockstar reminds us of their Red Dead Redemption 2 / GTA Online cross-promotion as well.

To make up for no new content this week, Rockstar is showering us with the most varied ways to earn double rewards any single weekly event has ever seen.

LATEST GTA NEWS CLIPS

In keeping with the theme of this event, obviously Gunrunning sell missions yield double RP and GTA$, but that isn't all. VIP/CEO work and challenges, Piracy Prevention, Executive Search, Weaponized Vehicle Missions and all Rockstar Created Stunt Races will pay out twice the usual rate.

While most of these missions cater to high-rank players experienced enough to be immersed in the business side of things, the Stunt Races are accessible to lower level players as well. These races sometimes provide you with the vehicles themselves, meaning you don't need to own the newest and most expensive ride to stand a chance, and this could fast track you to more expensive exploits.

The Red Dead Redemption 2 cross promotion paying out large amounts of GTA$ for relatively little effort has been extended to this week as well, just in case you couldn't secure both the gold-plated double-action revolver and the stone hatchet last week. You'll earn a bonus of GTA$ 250,000 per challenge.

Rockstar really brought their A-game with discounts in this week's GTA Online event.

Gunrunning content takes the spotlight with 35% discounts on bunkers and MK II upgrades, as well as sweeping markdowns of 35% and 40% on most weaponized vehicles and other rides. These include the HVY Barrage, the Buckingham Akula and the Imponte Ruiner 2000, among others. Many non-Gunrunning vehicles are also discounted, including all Yachts, the Lampadati Viseris and more.

Next Friday Rockstar will be well occupied with the release of Red Dead Redemption 2, so we don't know how this will affect GTA Online updates. We'll likely still get something, but don't expect too big a splash.
