Rockstar Games has officially kicked off its ‘Contraband Week’ in Grand Theft Auto Online, featuring double cash bonuses on Gunrunning Sell Missions and discounts on Bunkers, Vehicles, and more. Plus, we also have an outlook on what’s coming to GTA Online next week.

Gunrunning & Target Assault Bonuses

Players can enjoy Double GTA$ & RP via Gunrunning Sell Missions through April 16th. Plus, fire up the Disruption Logistics website on the Bunker Laptop and assign your team to Research, which is running 50% faster to unlock choice upgrades for the same period.

Extended through April 16th, drivers and dead-eyes alike can still earn Double GTA$ & RP in Target Assault Races. This new mode released last week tests the racing speed and shooting precision of duos in equal measure as one is one behind the wheel, and the other on the trigger. The Gunner is responsible for destroying targets from a mounted gun, while the Driver races to outmanoeuvre the opposition for additional points on each lap.

Vehicle & Bunker Discounts

Warstock Cache & Carry is offering up a barrage of discounts this week, from the nimble Dune FAV to the hulking war machine known as the Mobile Operations Center.

Coming Next Week – The Vespucci Job, New Vehicles

Rockstar Games also offered a teased of what’s to come to Grand Theft Auto Online next week. Available on Tuesday, April 17th, fans can look forward to The Vespucci Job – a brand new mode where you’re either on the run in the diminutive vintage export, the Weeny Issi Classic (coming to your local Southern San Andreas Super Autos dealership) or you’re in hot pursuit in an LSPD squad car trying to put an end to the madcap caper.

In addition, be on the lookout for new arrivals from Legendary Motorsport and Elitás Travel in the form of the mighty Vapid Flash GT Sports car and the Sea Sparrow Chopper. Expect more details to be shared when it all drops next week on Tuesday, April 17th.

If You Missed It Last Week – Target Assault Races & The Vapid Caracara

In the meantime, if you missed it last week, the all-new Vapid Caracara arrived into GTA Online. It’s a six-wheeled monster that can barrel through traffic while your buddy rips through foes with a rear-mounted Minigun. Get it today from Warstock Cache & Carry for $1,175,000.

Also, now available in GTA Online are the new Target Assault Races as teams of two strap into a range of weaponized vehicles – one behind the wheel, and the other on the trigger. With seven unique tracks and an assortment of assault-minded vehicles, there’s plenty to enjoy from this mode.

Last, but certainly not least, it has been revealed that Grand Theft Auto V is the most profitable entertainment product ever released. It has surpassed the biggest Hollywood blockbusters, the highest charting songs, the most profitable television series, and the most successful books ever released. Grand Theft Auto V has sold-in more than 90 million units worldwide, raking in a whopping $6 billion for Rockstar Games and its parent company, Take-Two Interactive.
