GTA Online Celebrates ‘Battle Week’ With New 4X4 Off-Roader

Rockstar Games has introduced ‘Battle Week’ into GTA Online, featuring the arrival of a brand-new 4X4 off-roader with the Canis Kamacho, Double GTA$ and RP in select Adversary Modes, and discounts on an assortment of military items and armaments.

Canis Kamacho Now Available

The Canis Kamacho is a throwback to the glory days of the American 4X4 – delivering the reliability of a pickup and the resilience of a small battleship without the compromise of aerodynamics. With a rock-solid chassis and the suitably Spartan interior of a real off-roader, look down on your friends from on high in the Canis Kamacho.

This off-road 4X4 can be acquired today at Southern San Andreas Super Autos for the surprisingly low cost of $345,000. If you’re looking for a new truck to tackle the rugged locations of Los Santos and Blaine County off-road, then no look further than the Canis Kamacho.

Black Ammu-Nation Tee

Players who log into Grand Theft Auto Online this week will be sent a free Black Ammu-Nation Tee. Simply play GTA Online anytime now through Monday, February 12th, and the shirt will be yours to wear with pride in Los Santos.

Protect your right to life, liberty and hot lead with the Black Ammu-Nation Tee in GTA Online.

Double GTA$ & RP Opportunities

Rockstar Games is offering Double GTA$ and RP on a variety of Adversary Modes in GTA Online, including the following:

Motor Wars: Parachute into a warzone with a pistol and a prayer in Motor Wars and face off on the ground with heavy arms and Weaponized Vehicles. The longer you and your team survive, the smaller the field of combat, until players are forced into full-on confrontation. Just remember to pull your chute or you’re done before you start.

Hardest Target: There’s a bullseye on your back that everyone can see, but the hot seat changes every minute. Neutralize the opposing team’s Target while protecting your own to put points on the board and bring home the win.

Slashers: Maybe you’ve watched enough movies to outsmart a maniac, but how about a whole team of them? Slashers pits a mob of Shotgun-wielding lunatics against the Hunted - with teams swapping roles every 60 seconds until one side has been wiped out entirely.

Occupy: Two teams fight for control of three Capture Zones amid flying rocket bikes and a host of deadly Weaponized Vehicles. Each precious second your team holds a Zone counts towards victory, but keep an eye out for unwanted visitors looking to steal away your hard-earned land.

Launch Premium Races through the Quick Job App on your in-game phone or via the yellow corona at Legion Square.

To take a shot at the Time Trial, set a waypoint to the marker on your in-game map and enter via the purple corona. Beat par time and you'll be duly rewarded with GTA$ & RP.

If You Missed It Last Week – The Pfister Neon

Last week, Rockstar Games released the new all-electric Pfister Neon Sports Car in GTA Online. It’s available exclusively at Legendary Motorsport for the premium price tag of $1,500,000. It was complemented by the new Hardest Target, which sees you slaughter the other team's ‘Target’ and protect your own at all costs.

On February 1st, Rockstar Games announced it would be delaying Red Dead Redemption 2 from its Spring 2018 release timeframe to October 26th, 2018. The open-world western sequel, which was originally supposed to launch in Fall 2017, recently had a lot of alleged information leaked, including features such as a Battle Royale online mode, first-person gameplay options, and a more living online freeroam experience. Rockstar Games has yet to officially confirm these features, however.

In the meantime, don’t miss our exclusive feature story on Red Dead Redemption 2, which takes a detailed look at everything we know so far, including the game’s use of photogrammetry to create the materials and assets found in its environments.
