3X RP and $ on Land Races aswell
Classic Land Races really are one of the most fun things in this game
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
> 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.
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
Have you tried everything off, thunderstorm, and one lap?
Sounds like fun. I gotta try that, now!
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.
And most importantly, it looks good.
Is the custom version is better in terms of stats?
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.
GTB Custom is 0.75 MPH faster than the GTB, but slower lap time according to Broughy1322's spreadsheet
[Apparently sea races and parachuting have been added back into the game.](https://www.reddit.com/r/gtaonline/comments/pyfst0/an_update/)
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?
Please tell me they added back tiny racers and the Vespucci job
How many weeks in a row is this now without anything on warstock being on sale
I wanna say 3 weeks
Potential bennys sale? The youga, itali gtb, comet and faction are on sale.
Can confirm the upgrade cost for the youga classic is on sale. I will check other vehicles soon
Please tell me the upgrade for the Moonbeam is **not** on sale. I've upgraded it yesterday.
That would be a good lesson to not buy anything in GTAO on wednesdays
Looks like it’s all the stock vehicles that are on sale plus the manana
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
Good job I only bought it for the Lovefist livery.
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
If that isn't false advertising I don't know what is.
Guess I'll stick to the Rumpo Custom.
- "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.
Thanks for the heads up! Saved me some cash.
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.
The Rumpo Custom is a good off-road van.
The kamacho is great at off-road! Absolutely slays in off-road races
Yes, it is. But it's not a van - we're talking about offroad vans.
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!
Autoshop renovations 25% off
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
Yes and yes.
Yes to both.
Ah - the infamous rear wheel drive Youga Classic 4x4 on sale
thought it was just me
3x Lamar Contact missions YAY!
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.
>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".
Oh well no yeah Humane Labs is awful for sure.
> 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.*
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.
Does anyone have 1 player Lamar missions playlist ?
Glad you asked, I do, for PC.
You rock !
Ha ha, thanks! :D
No problem, happy to help.
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+))
Was it worth it?
another week without a carwash discount smh
The Dump is still full price too.
I bought Dump at half price around the second half of 2018. I dont think it has been on sale ever since
I actually bought it a while ago and regret nothing
Low-key I've been waiting 😅
I waited for a while. Got it on sale a few years ago.
Great... Pursuit races again...
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.
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.
Yeah that's it. I'm all for a free car but some of them I'd rather just pump a cayo
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
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
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
"Pursuit" is such a weird name for "cops spawn directly in front of you sometimes."
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.
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.
Welcome back, kapitan!
Just load up the race, suspend the process in Task Manager, wait 5 seconds, resume the process, race solo
Wouldn’t that crash the game?
If you do it for only 5-10 seconds no. Thats how you get solo public lobbies on PC
You can also activate airplane mode and go back to normal quickly
Guess they really didn't like people talking trash about Expanded and Enhanced update and rockstar is getting back at us with these updates ..
We can get back to them and not play at all, straight to gutters. A consumer's punishment is the biggest punishment.
That’s just gonna punish ourselves in the end.
I’d take the GTA we have now than no GTA any day.
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.
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
A day? Try a minute, I needs my fix!
2x RP and $ on Offense Defense
Is this a new mode? If yes, what is it about?
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.
I just bought the Willard Faction last week smh
As long as you didn't do it yesterday, you're good. And it's dirt cheap even when not discounted anyway.
Upgrading gets real expensive
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
No autoshop discount until now because they gave away the Strawberry location for free to prime players for a month.
My prediction for next week is more Benny’s, part two of benny discounts such as a Nero custom sale
I was thinking the same thing..
30% off the comet rockstar is spoiling us
ngl I got me one haha
Hello AGAIN Mr Rubio
Are you gonna go to the Market or are you gonna take it from Merryweather?
In some country they call such company ATM...
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!
Only certain cars can be modified at his warehouse. https://gta.fandom.com/wiki/Benny%27s_Original_Motor_Works
With Benny’s cars are you saying you can’t modify them anywhere else not even respray color?
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.
But only if you opted to add the Benny's mechanic. It was an add on
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.
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.
I use my Khanjali for that mission lmfao
just warning you after killing the majority of the lost i keep getting mission failed mission over error
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...
no warstock discounts? 💔
Donks for LYFE!
Par time video needs to be updated, the blazer aqua is no longer useable for the time trial
Good shout. However, this TT is incredibly easy with any motorcycle really.
fair enough, i was unaware you couldn’t use the blazer anymore so i’ve already spent the dough
Well that sucks.
Maybe a stupid question, but why? Was it removed from the game?
I think they just updated it so you couldn’t just drive through the lake to complete it
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
Did I really just get 9k on the triple money Lamar mission….
Don’t spend it all in one place. Save for your good behavior award.
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?
They have been free for everyone since the Tuners DLC came out. Sort by price and you'll see there is more.
3 x Gerald missions
3x land races.
good week so far :P
Is that a thing?
I don't know but I have a feeling it *was* until Rockstar removed it like most other adversary modes.
Well, see you all next Thursday lol 👋🏻👋🏻
Finally the vectre is there for free
now land races are gonna be toxic and full of kids
Set Non contact
Turn off traffic
Mute voice chat
Enjoy a non toxic race
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.
[Returning Player Bonuses Available To All Players](https://www.reddit.com/r/gtaonline/comments/os1xzn/returning_player_bonuses_available_to_all_players/)
Ah interesting, I didn't know about that, thanks!
Everybody gets returning player bonuses now.
Pretty sure they've always been free if you're returning from 360/PS3.
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!
You can't have too many Factions though.
No 2x business today?
Are the lamar missions in question also including the Lowrider ones?
thought about getting the Euros yesterday, glad I waited 'till today. had to tell myself "never buy on wednesday" about a dozen times
BENNY’S!!!! Time to get some doubles.
aw I hate pursuit races
The Rebela is clean holy smokes
Hmm Duggan going broke, from Toreador as podium vehicle to rebla
Yeah bitch! Jesse Pinkman's car is on sale! Right on!
I had a 5 speed Toyota Tercel in high School. I called it The Roller-skate. It was like driving a badass cardboard box.
Why does every week seem more boring than last
Too high expectations.
In fairness I'm sick of seeing people use those words too.
Well, that shows that they know what the fans want, so that's good...
The North Korean approach is not however...
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.
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.
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.
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.
Imagine someone not knowing GTA reads the first 2 lines of your comment
Thanks for the laugh.
I always knew only psychopaths play this game xD
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.
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.
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.
TT's are updated in game. TT is Califia Way and RCTT is La Fuente Blanca
No new time trial?
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 $1.7M for the Aqua...
It’s easy with a motorcycle. Shotaro or Hakuchou or Bati.
Got it with the Bati, thanks
You can use the Aqua Blazer on time trials? What the what!?!?!?!?
Offense Defense is pretty fun. A rather good week finally.
Is there no foreclosure sale this week? Or just the renovations to auto shop discount
Here is a [playlist](https://socialclub.rockstargames.com/games/gtav/ps4/playlists/playlist/xFXNTd6JVkSJc_Cb0G_NPA) for Lamar Missions. Only works for PS4!
Triple bonuses on lamar missions? Looks like I'll be helping out low levels this week
Is it worth doing the 3x GTA$ contact missions or should I still stick to selling product and Buisness stuff?
The contact missions are good for leveling up, and the money is a nice bonus.
Loving the 3x race and 2x timetrial!!!
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.
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.
It's the contact missions you find in the Job menu, not the lowrider ones.
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
AFAIK it's never been on sale.
I’m almost too afraid to ask, but I kinda really want to know now. What does AFAIK mean?
As far as I know.
As far as you know what?
As Far As You Know, *what*?
IIRC, as far as i know
I do not like you. You are not invited to my birthday. That’ll show you. Using unknown abbreviations
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*
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)
I remember it well, struck a lot of vehicles off my list that day
I better start saving some money towards that day as my bucket list is still very long
just give us panther or 2x cayo…
