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.
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.
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.
You can also take advantage of discounted MOC Cabs, Bays and
the Mk II Weapon Upgrade – available via the MOC or Avenger Weapon Workshop,
along with a slew of other savings. Find the full list of discounted offerings
In addition, there’s also discounts on select Bunkers from Maze
Bank Foreclosure. In addition, all upgrades and renovations for Bunkers have
been discounted by 30%. Here’s the full list of savings you can take advantage

on sale this week. Enjoy a 25% discount on both the Pfister Neon
and Overflod Autarch through April 16th.

Loop (Locked To Rocket Voltic): Compete in this week’s Premium Race, The
Loop, where the top three earn GTA$ and all participants get triple RP
regardless of finishing position. Launch Premium Races through the Quick Job
App on your in-game phone or via the yellow corona at Legion Square.

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.

Minigun. Get it today from Warstock Cache & Carry for $1,175,000.
