GTA 5 Weekly Update: Double Money and RP Bonuses for Special Vehicle Work, Extraction Adversary Modes, and Bunker Research
Welcome to the GTA 5 weekly update for the period of Thursday, April 14th to Wednesday, April 21st, 2022. This week in the world of GTA Online, players can expect a range of events and bonuses, including double and triple money and RP bonuses. Whether you’re in the mood for special vehicle work or adversary modes, this event week has something for everyone. Let’s dive in and see what’s in store for the week ahead.
Lost Santos Car Meet Prize Ride: Turismo Classic
The Lost Santos Car Meet Prize Ride for this week is the Turismo Classic, a sports classic car. According to GTA Base, the Turismo Classic has a top speed of around 95 miles per hour (52 kilometers per hour) for the standard version, and 150 miles per hour (240 kilometers per hour) for the HSW version. The Turismo Classic retails at around 705 grand plus upgrades, and to win this ride, players need to place first in seven separate street races, which is no easy feat. If you’re a fan of sports classics and have the time, it’s worth it to go for the Turismo Classic.
This week’s test rides are the Classy Granger 3600 LX, the Eunice Deity, and the Dinka RT3000. Of these, the Eunice Deity is an absolute cracker, so if you haven’t tried it before, it’s definitely worth taking for a spin.
HSW Ride: Devastate 8
If you’re on the next-gen consoles, this week’s HSW ride is the Devastate 8, a brutal car with a top speed of 105.6 miles per hour (170 kilometers per hour). With all the HSW kit, it’s worth around 1.795 million plus upgrades.
Podium Vehicle: Obey Tailgater S
This week’s podium vehicle at the casino is the Obey Tailgater S, a sedan and tuna car that retails for around 1 million and 495 grand according to GTA Base. With a top speed of around 92 miles per hour (147 kilometers per hour), this vehicle is a great choice for fans of sedans and tuna cars.
The regular time trial for this week starts in front of the Maze Bank Arena at the downtown side of the map, with a part-time of 1 minute and 17.8 seconds. While a motorcycle is likely the best choice for this time trial, you can also pick up something off the street, or buy a Pegasi Batty from Southern San Andreas Super Sports for 15 grand. With a hundred grand prize, you can certainly make up for the cost. The RC time trial starts at the power station with a part-time of 1 minute 45 flat. If you have the Arena Workshop and have invested in the Bandito, you can earn another quick 100k. Finally, for those who have scored a next-gen console, this week’s House Special Works time trial is Ron Alternates, with a part-time of 2 minutes and 38 seconds. Keep in mind that you’ll need an HSW vehicle to participate, so this one isn’t cheap. You can complete these time trials as many times as you like, but you’ll need to wait for the cooldown, which is one in-game day or 48 real-world minutes.
Double Money and RP Bonuses
To keep the money train rolling, this event week features double cash and RP on all sell missions for special vehicle work. There are some serious opportunities to make some cash with special vehicle work, especially if you’ve been grinding and stocking up. The event week also offers triple cash and triple RP on extraction adversary modes and double speed boost on bunker research, making it a great time to earn big.
This week’s discounts include a range of deals on special vehicle warehouses and special cargo warehouses, with 30% off purchase and renovation. Other discounts include 50% off biker and bunker supplies, 50% off the Torino, 40% off the Night Shark, 40% off the ETR1, 40% off the Sultan RS Classic, 40% off the Weaponized Tamper, and 40% off the Technical Aqua. There’s something for everyone in this eclectic mix of discounts, so take advantage of them while you can.
Login Bonus and GTA Plus
This week’s login bonus features the Blackhawk and the Little Logo Tee. For those subscribing to GTA Plus, there are several benefits for this month, including 500 grand deposited into your Maze Bank account, the Principal Devastate 8 available for purchase before it’s available to the general public, complementary House Special Works upgrades for the Devastate 8, an assortment of gameplay updates at the Auto Shop located in La Mesa, waived LS Car Meet membership fees, upgrades to an Aquarius Super Yacht at no additional cost, a Gasquette Frogtee and the Broker Prolapse Basketball Top and Shorts added to your wardrobe, a Conveyor Library for the Mammoth Avenger, Heavy APC, and TM02 Khanjali, a selection of free paints and emblems for the Auto Shop, and triple cash and RP on House Special Works race series and double RP at the Street Race series. Keep in mind that while subscribing to GTA Plus has its perks, it isn’t something that we encourage considering Rockstar’s recent behavior.
Weekly Challenge: Play Two Rounds of Tennis
This week’s challenge is to play two rounds of tennis, which will increase your character’s strength. Whether you’re looking to complete the challenge or just want to spend some time on the tennis court, this is a great way to get some exercise in-game.
