Smuggler's Week has arrived into GTA Online and with it comes Double Cash on Smuggler's Run Sell Missions and the Stockpile Adversary Mode, as well as steep discounts on aircraft and a tease of what’s to come to Grand Theft Auto Online next week with the new Special Vehicle Circuit race events.

Smuggler's Week Double GTA$ & RP Bonuses

The headline of Smuggler's Week is undeniably the Double GTA$ & RP on Smuggler's Run Sell Missions through Monday, April 30th. Plus, there’s also the same bonus on the Stockpile Adversary Mode throughout the same period. Perfect for those frequent fliers eager to showcase their aerial acrobatics.

Outside of your airborne activities, there’s extended double payouts on The Vespucci Job this week, as well as Hotring Circuit where you can also earn Double GTA$ & RP.

Unlock The Free Skulls Livery

Log into GTA Online by April 30th and you’ll unlock the free Skulls Livery for your Anti-Aircraft Trailer – allowing you to decorate your war machine with the skulls of your fallen foes.

With illicit cargo flying overhead throughout Smuggler’s Week, now is the best time to take your newly-decorated Anti-Aircraft Trailer for a spin and blast rival operations out of the sky.

Smuggler's Week Discounts Aircraft & Classic Cars

Also featured in the Smuggler's Week is a range of discounts available for the next seven days in GTA Online, including 40% off Hangars and Hangar Workshops through April 30th.

In addition, an assortment of vehicles from the Smuggler's Run update are receiving price cuts available exclusively for the next week, and these range from the towering RM-10 Bombushka to the aqua-friendly Mammoth Tula.

New Special Vehicle Races Arrive Next Week

Next week, fans can look forward to stunt racing in jetpacks, flying cars and sports car/submarine hybrids with the introduction of a whole new variety of Special Vehicle Races. These will be available in GTA Online from Tuesday, May 1st and will see players swerve around underwater mines, glide through sunny mountain ranges and boost through air gates as they compete in the latest addition to the Southern San Andreas Super Sport Series that features fan-favourite vehicles from The Doomsday Heist, including the Imponte Deluxo, Ocelot Stromberg and Mammoth Thruster.

In addition, there’s still more to come throughout Spring from the Southern San Andreas Super Sport Series, including new Transform Races, Creator updates, a unique new team survival mode called ‘Trap Door,’ and plenty of high-performance vehicles to collect, customize, and race – made perfect for the connoisseurs of supercars, classics and more.

If You Missed It Last Week – The Vespucci Job

Last week was an exciting one for GTA Online fans with the introduction of The Vespucci Job – the latest Adversary Mode to arrive into the game. This mode sees you as either a criminal lunatic on the run in the new Issi Classic, trying to hit every checkpoint in time – or you’re a squad car right behind and looking to blow a lot more than the doors off.

In addition, three new vehicles arrived into GTA Online to compliment the new mode, including the Vapid Flash GT from Legendary Motorsport at $1,675,000, the Weeny Issi Classic for the more respectable price of $360,000, and of course, the Sea Sparrow chopper – an exquisite, agile and miniature helicopter available from Elitás Travel for $1,815,000 – making it the most expensive of the trio of new vehicles added into GTA Online last week.

Rockstar Games also announced and released the Grand Theft Auto V Premium Online Edition last week, too. Overall, with all these new additions, you can naturally forgive the lack of new vehicles featured in GTA Online’s Smuggler's Week. In the meantime, if you’re hungry for even more content from Rockstar’s ever-expanding online world, we recently checked out the Issi Classic and tried to recreate The Italian Job. Unfortunately, it didn’t all go exactly to plan – as you’ll see for yourself if you watch the video.
