GTA Online update

It’s another week for Grand Theft Auto V, and that means a fresh GTA Online update. The multiplayer component of GTAV is adding the Buckingham Pyro, a plane with “a jet engine and dual machine guns.” There are also a bunch of bonus opportunities to get some double GTA$.

Check out the full details of the latest GTA Online update below (via Rockstar Games):


The Buckingham Pyro is available today from Warstock Cache & Carry. The distinct twin-boom body comes packed with a jet engine and dual machine guns. Customize in your Hangar’s Workshop with homing missiles, liveries, armor, engine and handling upgrades, and more.


Through October 16th you’ll have ample opportunity to rack up your in-game cash and rep. Take advantage of extended Double GTA$ & RP in the jet-fueled, Capture-inspired Stockpile, the most recent Adversary Mode to land in GTA Online. And speaking of landing, parachute your way into the desolate warzone that is Motor Wars, also doling out Double GTA$ & RP this week.

Plus, Bunker Researchand Manufacturing and Biker Business Production will be running 25% faster, giving you more bang for your buck as you trade your way to the top.


If you’re looking to get in on some smuggling or gunrunning action, whip out your iFruit and head to the Maze Bank Foreclosures website, where you’ll find 25% off the Fort Zancudo Hangar 3499 and the Thomson Scrapyard Bunker. There’s also a meaty 25% off all Bunker Renovations, now through October 16th.

After you’ve settled into your new base of operations, don’t miss out on the following vehicular discounts:

  • Ultralight – 25% off (both Buy it Now and Trade Price)
  • Rocket Voltic – 25% off (both Buy it Now and Trade Price)

Blaine County is where it’s at this week with the following Premium Race & Time Trial events, live now through October 16th:

  • Premium Stunt Race – “Raton” (Locked to Super)
  • Time Trial – “Raton Canyon”

Launch Premium Races through the Quick Job App on your in-game phone or via the yellow corona at Legion Square. The top three finishers will earn GTA$ and you’ll get Triple RP regardless of where you place. 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 payouts.

Grand Theft Auto V is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
