3X RP and $ on Land Races aswell


Professional-Gain728

Best


hannibalxyz

Classic Land Races really are one of the most fun things in this game


MySisterTheSea

I love hosting them. Catchup/slipstream off, traffic off, weather current really brings a level of skill to those old races. If low levels are in the lobby I'll turn customs off too so everyone has a fair chance to win


CMDR_Agony_Aunt

> If low levels are in the lobby I'll turn customs off too so everyone has a fair chance to win Very considerate of you. I love racing with customs now, but hated it when i was starting out and having to use stock cars while others were using their souped up cars.


MySisterTheSea

Yeah I love racing with my custom cars too because I spend so much time fussing with them, but I too remember the struggle back in the day too haha. I just feel bad otherwise. Usually I'll also pull off at the end to let a low level in second place take the win even with customs off because they need the race win more than I need the extra ~1,000 dollars


HH_LL

Have you tried everything off, thunderstorm, and one lap?


Anto7358

Sounds like fun. I gotta try that, now!


MclovinsHomewrecker

I highly recommend the Itali GTB if you don’t have it. It handles like a hockey puck at high speeds but it’s a beast once you get used to it.


PVDSWE

And most importantly, it looks good.


mo0nl1ghtshadow

Is the custom version is better in terms of stats?


[deleted]

The main difference is that the normal one gains a traction bonus from spoilers, while the custom does not and instead has a down force stat (which is a decimal multiplied against your speed). So the normal one has better traction at lower and middling speeds, while the custom one will have better traction at higher speeds. The GTB Custom has a very low down force stat though, so the normal one ends up being the better performer. They are both fun though and I like that you don't have to have a spoiler on the custom.


sammisaran

GTB Custom is 0.75 MPH faster than the GTB, but slower lap time according to Broughy1322's spreadsheet


Jamaican_Dynamite

Yep.


bob_the_impala

[Apparently sea races and parachuting have been added back into the game.](https://www.reddit.com/r/gtaonline/comments/pyfst0/an_update/)


Alex3627ca

Perhaps they're just disabling and re-enabling them each week in some attempt to get players to play them when they're not 3x and/or to make it easier to find a populated match?


garrbear22622

Please tell me they added back tiny racers and the Vespucci job


mrmtchl

How many weeks in a row is this now without anything on warstock being on sale


csep619

I wanna say 3 weeks


narf63

Potential bennys sale? The youga, itali gtb, comet and faction are on sale.


narf63

Can confirm the upgrade cost for the youga classic is on sale. I will check other vehicles soon


Kiligboi

Thanks Sal


Czar-Lazar

Please tell me the upgrade for the Moonbeam is **not** on sale. I've upgraded it yesterday.


Gjab

That would be a good lesson to not buy anything in GTAO on wednesdays


narf63

Looks like it’s all the stock vehicles that are on sale plus the manana


Tooj_Mudiqkh

People may wish to note that the Youga Classic 4x4 is acually rear wheel drive only. It's suitable for overlanding about as much as you'd consequently expect


Jhawk163

Good job I only bought it for the Lovefist livery.


PVDSWE

Serious?


Tooj_Mudiqkh

It's something you buy for the way it looks/customisation. It's about as viable for offroad as any other rear wheel drive vehicle. It doesn't even get a perrformance boost from offroad tyres


PVDSWE

If that isn't false advertising I don't know what is. Guess I'll stick to the Rumpo Custom.


Tooj_Mudiqkh

Well, there's - "So, it's a portable ramp? No it's not. It's a *very professional dedicated vehicle hauler.*" - "That's why you need the Squaddie, a military grade *armor-clad* SUV" Truth in advertising as far as R* vehicles go has never been a thing. Maybe that's *another* satire in the game.


captaincheezbeard

Thanks for the heads up! Saved me some cash.


Zakkar

Yeah it's a garbage offroad vehicle. There are much better choices if you want to take a van off road. I'm partial to my offroad spec Brutus.


burrito-boy

The Rumpo Custom is a good off-road van.


Kiligboi

The kamacho is great at off-road! Absolutely slays in off-road races


Zakkar

Yes, it is. But it's not a van - we're talking about offroad vans.


Kiligboi

Ahhh good point lol sorry about that i just woke up and my brains still foggy Oh that's no excuse, my brains foggy all day!


Zakkar

Lol


MrHelloOperator

Autoshop renovations 25% off


Even13flow

I don’t have any Bennys vehicles. Do you buy the stock version and then upgrade them? I also have the Benny’s mechanic at my Arena Wars so I should be able to do everything there right


Casual_Grinder

Yes and yes.


Even13flow

Thank you


pulley999

Yes to both.


Tooj_Mudiqkh

Ah - the infamous rear wheel drive Youga Classic 4x4 on sale


Pedrikos

thought it was just me


EarthPuma120

3x Lamar Contact missions YAY!


hmiser

I was doing these a week ago for a change of pace and was really surprised that so many low levels were hosting. I’ve always felt these were tough with randoms. That said, I’d say Prison Break is the worst with randoms but I joined two different PB lobbies by choosing “join random job” on the phone. Randos out there making life hard for themselves.


Anto7358

>I'd say Prison Break is the worst with randoms Honestly, I wouldn't really say it's the "*worst*"... I can tell you from personal experience that the Humane Labs Raid is the actual, worst absolute heist to do with randoms; I once wasted a good couple of hours completing it. Good luck making them understand not to shoot anyone or try to get within the facility's perimeter before the enemy Insurgent makes its way out of the complex. Absolute pain in the ass of a "heist".


hmiser

Oh well no yeah Humane Labs is awful for sure.


LiteralPhilosopher

> Good luck making them understand not to ... try to get within the facility's perimeter before the enemy Insurgent makes its way out of the complex. Lolwut? Getting inside the gate before the Insurgent comes around is simple-pimple. I normally encourage everyone to just shoot the first two dudes, then hustle in and hang out behind the SE corner of the building while he goes by. At least that one, when somebody effs it up, you get a restart right there. Unlike fricking Prison Break where you have to fly the Velum all the way up from LSIA *again.*


TRATIA

Can’t finish a fucking pursuit race to save my life. If I don’t get knocked into a wall at a hundred miles an hour by a driver with zero skill at handling a tuner, a random pole knocks me out or a police car goes 1000IQ and happens to get right in front of me and another blocks me and I’m stuck. I don’t remember pursuit races being this bad at all.


M-Night-Shyamasdfghj

Does anyone have 1 player Lamar missions playlist ?


TheThemePark

Glad you asked, I do, for PC. https://old.reddit.com/r/gtaonline/comments/nnlaff/playlists_of_all_1p_contact_missions/


M-Night-Shyamasdfghj

You rock !


TheThemePark

Ha ha, thanks! :D


WeaselOne

Thank you.


TheThemePark

No problem, happy to help.


Cerms

Did the Lamar Davis contact missions on Hard Solo to see what the rewards would be. Ballas to the Walls: 6.8K $$, 2K RP 2m3s (54.9K $$, 10.3K RP (16m+)) Caught Napping: 21K $$, 4.4K RP, 3m23s (57.6K $$, 11.1K RP (16m+)) Going down the GOH: 29K $$, 5.5K RP, 5m29s (57.6K $$, 11.1K RP (16m+)) Lost MC RIP: 16K $$, 4.1K RP, 2m33s (58.5K $$, 11.4K RP (16min+)) No Smoking: 22K $$, 4.7K RP, 3m9s (59.4K $$, 12K RP (16min+))


_madmoney

Was it worth it?


Cerms

It's decent


OneNastySnatch

another week without a carwash discount smh


Elevas

The Dump is still full price too.


TheNotoriousZoom

I bought Dump at half price around the second half of 2018. I dont think it has been on sale ever since


CenturyHelix

I actually bought it a while ago and regret nothing


turbocharged9589

Low-key I've been waiting 😅


Elevas

I waited for a while. Got it on sale a few years ago.


pokegomsia

Great... Pursuit races again...


Bigbootybenana

Eh at least you can pump it out all in one go. I don't even bother with those so many days in a row ones.


pokegomsia

Can't imagine what will the challenge be for the Calico when it comes, place 1st in Pursuit races 7 days in a row? I'll just buy it thanks.


Bigbootybenana

Yeah that's it. I'm all for a free car but some of them I'd rather just pump a cayo


Gingrpenguin

Tbf im surprised the challenge is that easy considering the vectre is one of the best if not the best car in the tuner class, especially for street races


Bloody_lagga

It’s so hard to find pursuit races with the amount of players you need to start it on Xbox live them youngins don’t like a challenge


Longjumping_Repair_7

Join them through the playlist icon on the map next to the car meet building, I find more full lobbies that way, talking to the guy in the car meet often puts me on my own


Elevas

"Pursuit" is such a weird name for "cops spawn directly in front of you sometimes."


Nysyth

Only if you are not in 1st. Much easier to avoid the cops when you aren’t having to avoid the lag of the players in front of you. 1st place basically gets a lag free experience with the police, zero teleporting cops or police cars that become immovable objects if you run into them.


hmiser

Yeah if you get and keep the hole shot you’re gonna win if you know the layout of the check points. If you’re mid-pack it’s a shit show. If your at the back it’s fucking chaos and you might actually get shot to death. Great series though.


lost_visitor

Welcome back, kapitan!


Arks_PowerPlay

Just load up the race, suspend the process in Task Manager, wait 5 seconds, resume the process, race solo


Meakesy

Wouldn’t that crash the game?


roj234

If you do it for only 5-10 seconds no. Thats how you get solo public lobbies on PC


jasonrahl

You can also activate airplane mode and go back to normal quickly


Hg_on_Reddit

Guess they really didn't like people talking trash about Expanded and Enhanced update and rockstar is getting back at us with these updates ..


GetNap55

We can get back to them and not play at all, straight to gutters. A consumer's punishment is the biggest punishment.


MuchTemperature6776

That’s just gonna punish ourselves in the end. I’d take the GTA we have now than no GTA any day.


Maverick122

And what kind of punishment is that? They already have your money. You are putting less stress on their servers. You are incentivicing less free DLCs. I think, good sir, you might be shooting yourself in the foot here.


Cmntysrvc

That will never happen, I’ve been on this sub less than a week and I already can tell there’s people who physically wouldn’t be able to go more than a day lmao


TheThemePark

A day? Try a minute, I needs my fix!


tygryxx

2x RP and $ on Offense Defense


Harivalder

Is this a new mode? If yes, what is it about?


skulljumper

Offense Defense is really old. The game is you have 2 member on each team. One "attacker" (this guy has to race to the finish line first), and one "defender" (this guy has to ram the other teams' attackers and defend his teammate. First attacker to cross the finish line wins.


Aestin02

I just bought the Willard Faction last week smh


TheThemePark

As long as you didn't do it yesterday, you're good. And it's dirt cheap even when not discounted anyway.


diqufer

Upgrading gets real expensive


arkhangelsk44

25% off Renovations - Auto Shops I can't believe it took almost 3 months for that! The kosatka immediately had renovation discount for less than a month from release iirc


popplespopin

No autoshop discount until now because they gave away the Strawberry location for free to prime players for a month.


Bulbasaur2015

My prediction for next week is more Benny’s, part two of benny discounts such as a Nero custom sale


GCS101

I was thinking the same thing..


Le_SCHAMPION

30% off the comet rockstar is spoiling us


ElCiervo

ngl I got me one haha


Grum1o

Hello AGAIN Mr Rubio


CMDR_Agony_Aunt

Are you gonna go to the Market or are you gonna take it from Merryweather?


Vertex008

In some country they call such company ATM...


GCS101

Can someone help explain what the whole bennys thing is? I missed that whole update and have never looked into it. Is it just custom upgrades that you can only do at his garage? For example what happens when you convert the Progen Itali with him? Edit: That Faction Custom Donk looks WILD though so I obviously want that!


OtakonBlue

Only certain cars can be modified at his warehouse. https://gta.fandom.com/wiki/Benny%27s_Original_Motor_Works


Bulbasaur2015

With Benny’s cars are you saying you can’t modify them anywhere else not even respray color?


pulley999

Benny's cars, once converted, can be modified at normal mechanics as well, so you can respray at LSC. That said, many of the 'advanced' categories (e.g. Interior or Engine Bay customization) are hidden unless at Benny's.


[deleted]

[удалено]


UnfitRadish

But only if you opted to add the Benny's mechanic. It was an add on


Tooj_Mudiqkh

Donk party trick: If you Carolina Squat it and crash full speed head-on into a car with a reasonably pointy nose you'll get big air.


J0NICS

Im looking for two people to join me on pursuit races later for the prize ride. Ill be running two consoles, so all three of us will get a notch on the prize ride. Edit: already done.

w135005david

just warning you after killing the majority of the lost i keep getting mission failed mission over error


chickenskittles

I really thought the Arena Workshop would be discounted to because of the RC Bandito. This is actually a good week for me. Not for my garage space...


Vast-Butterscotch781

no warstock discounts? 💔


A_L_A_N_

Donks for LYFE!


Peter_Polio

Par time video needs to be updated, the blazer aqua is no longer useable for the time trial


bigb5555

Good shout. However, this TT is incredibly easy with any motorcycle really.


Peter_Polio

fair enough, i was unaware you couldn’t use the blazer anymore so i’ve already spent the dough


bigb5555

Well that sucks.


TheThemePark

Maybe a stupid question, but why? Was it removed from the game?


Peter_Polio

I think they just updated it so you couldn’t just drive through the lake to complete it


Talkurir

Yea must be it I already owned the APC and I can’t use it for it either which is stupid cause even if you go through the water it still can be pretty close


69gfunk69

Did I really just get 9k on the triple money Lamar mission….


MyOhLongJohnson

Don’t spend it all in one place. Save for your good behavior award.


Elbradamontes

I just got the Monster Truck and the Duke O Death for free today. Are those on this week's goodies as well or have those always been free?


Casual_Grinder

They have been free for everyone since the Tuners DLC came out. Sort by price and you'll see there is more.


Rabtheman

3 x Gerald missions 3x land races. good week so far :P


Jaeger_NL

Is that a thing?


chiller210

I don't know but I have a feeling it *was* until Rockstar removed it like most other adversary modes.


Akshay-CMGogo

Well, see you all next Thursday lol 👋🏻👋🏻


EazilyRare

Finally the vectre is there for free


autohypnosis

now land races are gonna be toxic and full of kids


Gingrpenguin

Race checklist Set Non contact Turn off traffic Mute voice chat Enjoy a non toxic race


burrito-boy

It’s interesting that the stock car variants (Redwood Gauntlet, Sprunk Buffalo, etc.) are still free to purchase. Wonder how long that’s going to last, because it’s been weeks now, lol.

Ah interesting, I didn't know about that, thanks!


bigbenisdaman

Everybody gets returning player bonuses now.


AlexatRF21

Pretty sure they've always been free if you're returning from 360/PS3.


CMDR_Avalien

Bought Willard Faction Donk last week, after seeing it at the car meet, & upgraded the hydraulics on my Sabre Custom yesterday. A bit of money lost, but sure is fun hitting the hydraulics for a bouncy straight to the finish, in front of your competitors 😁 Thanks for the info, looks like I'll be racing most of this week!


TheThemePark

You can't have too many Factions though.


-Kurogita-

No 2x business today?


dazzathomas

Are the lamar missions in question also including the Lowrider ones?


C4RB0N

thought about getting the Euros yesterday, glad I waited 'till today. had to tell myself "never buy on wednesday" about a dozen times


cowsfan1972

BENNY’S!!!! Time to get some doubles.


chili01

aw I hate pursuit races


LunarNan

The Rebela is clean holy smokes


shrutedwightscott

Hmm Duggan going broke, from Toreador as podium vehicle to rebla


Creeperskull12

Yeah bitch! Jesse Pinkman's car is on sale! Right on!


MclovinsHomewrecker

I had a 5 speed Toyota Tercel in high School. I called it The Roller-skate. It was like driving a badass cardboard box.


Creeperskull12

Lmao


SorryShktiman

Why does every week seem more boring than last


Wertysd

Too high expectations.


[deleted]

[удалено]


HeinousMule

In fairness I'm sick of seeing people use those words too.


PVDSWE

Serious? Well, that shows that they know what the fans want, so that's good... The North Korean approach is not however...


hukilaukohi

Cayo Perico. Access to money has never been easier. Doubling or tripling the payout of other businesses/missions/etc no longer interests anyone who owns a sub. A variety or high number of deep weekly discounts is no longer required if everything can be bought with 1-2 Cayo runs. Really hoping "enhanced and expanded" includes a complete rebalancing of the GTO economy. If 2x-3x air freight cargo paid as well as Cayo, I'd do that for a week. That said, I'm pretty pleased with seeing some Benny's discounts this week, been a long while since we've seen those.


SorryShktiman

Rightly said. But I was rich even before Cayo. I bought vehicles from new DLC only once per week to keep things interesting. But I am still bored. Unless there’s some interesting money making business on 2x like I/E or Air Cargo, it will remain boring. I only touch Cayo if I am dying of boredom, it is that boring. Yes, I had been waiting for Benny’s discounts too. But I want the cars not on this week’s list.


legitfriendly

Spot on, if they buffed some of the older business with high entry prices, people would have a greater variety of play options. But with each update they offer more money than the last, and it becomes the new ‘Go to’. I sold warehouse stock the other night, 19mins flying around the city, attack helicopters at every drop… got paid 81k, I’m lucky I didn’t have to stock the place first, it was old stock that had been sitting there for months. The depository pays 4 times that for 14mins work, and a lower cost of entry to the mission.


SuperMeister

That's not really true. I did only coke and meth this last week with my wife. Not everything is about min/max for income. The only business that desperately needs a money upgrade is air freight. I only did it for the discounts.


SorryShktiman

Imagine someone not knowing GTA reads the first 2 lines of your comment


SuperMeister

Thanks for the laugh.


i_t_d

I always knew only psychopaths play this game xD


One-Understanding-94

Haha! Lol!


chinpopocortez

I actually had fun and made good money this last week on 2x$ cocaine. I've always hated the MC bidnesses with a passion, but this last week I didn't get a single post-op van or trash truck.


hukilaukohi

You're lucky. I did maybe 2-3 MC business sales last week, 3-4 the week before, got Post-Op or garbage trucks at least 4 times.


snikeren1

The original point of this comment has been rendered moot by new information. :) For anyone curious what I was asking about, it was that the time trials hadn't been updated, which with double $ could indicate that we wouldn't get any cash if we did the time trial last week, rendering the bonus useless (this has happened before). The time trials has been updated now, so my question has been answered.


Trashgamernation

TT's are updated in game. TT is Califia Way and RCTT is La Fuente Blanca


fatbare

No new time trial?


COLONCOMPANION

Is the Blazer Aqua needed to complete the Califia Way time trial? Was hoping to get 2x $100k, but not if it's gonna cost me $1.7M for the Aqua...


bigb5555

It’s easy with a motorcycle. Shotaro or Hakuchou or Bati.


COLONCOMPANION

Got it with the Bati, thanks


bigb5555

Good job!


james42worthy

You can use the Aqua Blazer on time trials? What the what!?!?!?!?


JeRicHoOL

Offense Defense is pretty fun. A rather good week finally.


DarnRocks

Is there no foreclosure sale this week? Or just the renovations to auto shop discount


SuperMeister

Here is a [playlist](https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/games/gtav/ps4/playlists/playlist/xFXNTd6JVkSJc_Cb0G_NPA) for Lamar Missions. Only works for PS4!


Roccun

Triple bonuses on lamar missions? Looks like I'll be helping out low levels this week


AlexKrxss

Is it worth doing the 3x GTA$ contact missions or should I still stick to selling product and Buisness stuff?


Casual_Grinder

The contact missions are good for leveling up, and the money is a nice bonus.


BunnyDaKing

Loving the 3x race and 2x timetrial!!!


SearchOutrageous7249

I'm confused. I'm doing the Lamar missions and I'm not getting the 3x money or rp. What am I missing here. Thanks for the help.


Tooj_Mudiqkh

Only certain Lamar contact missions. Including (and I didn't know this was a Lamar mission) Lost MC RIP. If you're farming RP to level up, then the RIP mission + regular Kuruma (which is still fully bulletproof) or Khanjali if you have one might be a good pairing. Spend 4 minutes in it and you could get almost 5000 RP. Remember to get out of the car/tank and enter the mission dot before carrying on.


Cerms

It's the contact missions you find in the Job menu, not the lowrider ones.


OptimusGrimes

When was the last time the Vigilante was on sale? it's the last vehicle I want and I feel like I've been waiting for well over a year for it to go on sale


Casual_Grinder

AFAIK it's never been on sale.


22572374

I’m almost too afraid to ask, but I kinda really want to know now. What does AFAIK mean?


Casual_Grinder

As far as I know.


jams17

As far as you know what?


Akshay-CMGogo

As Far As I Know


Pretty_Tom

As Far As You Know, *what*?


Heavy-Difference-682

IIRC, as far as i know hehe


22572374

I do not like you. You are not invited to my birthday. That’ll show you. Using unknown abbreviations


popplespopin

Theory is it won't go on sale because it's the most recognizable children's vehicle (batman) with one of the steepest prices in the game. What do kids do? They buy sharkcards with mom and dads credit to spend on superhero cars. What pisses off mom's and dad's? Spending $40 on an imaginary car for Timmy and then finding out that imaginary car is only $20 the next day. The headaches would be too much for R*


hukilaukohi

Best chance of it going on sale will probably be black friday. Here's last year's discounts: [https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/events/NiLdSadO/3x-gta-and-rp-in-deadline/1](https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/events/NiLdSadO/3x-gta-and-rp-in-deadline/1)


OptimusGrimes

I remember it well, struck a lot of vehicles off my list that day


Al-Sadder

I better start saving some money towards that day as my bucket list is still very long


wolfkendrick

just give us panther or 2x cayo…
