GTA Online update: Half-Track, $1million challenge, x3 cash and more

Rockstar Games are practically handing out GTA Online cash all over the place at the moment, and the game’s latest update lets players grab an extra $1 million in cash, if they know what they’re doing. Let’s run through the patch notes. 

The latest content refresh, on May 21, has added a number of fresh things to take a look at – and it seems like the community should expect more to come from GTA Online in the future, too, with publisher Take-Two confirming the next year will be “light” in terms of game releases.

While that might be sad news for those looking forward to Grand Theft Auto 6, don’t underestimate the popularity of the franchise’s current offering. Millions are still pouring into the game each month, and this week they have plenty to feast their eyes on – that’s for sure.


Just like any other week in the world of GTA V, an update has been pushed out and players are waiting around for official confirmation from Rockstar on what’s changed. Though, leaker Tez2 on Twitter has been quick to spot some tweaks made already – so we’re going to list them for you.

GTA Online May 21 update: Patch notes

Half-Track lands on GTA Casino Podium

Rockstar Games
The Half-Track in GTA Online.

It might not be as flashy as other weeks, but the GTA Online vehicle that’s been added to the Casino rewards this week is Half-Track. It costs over $2,000,000 in-game, but with one free spin of the Lucky Wheel each day, you could grab one for free some time soon.


Get $1,000,000 for free in GTA Online

For a limited time, members of the community can earn themselves an extra wad of cash – a total of $1 million to be exact!

All you have to do is complete a series of daily challenges in GTA Online and soon enough, the cash will be deposited into your Maze Bank account. Sounds easy, but the tasks haven’t yet been revealed, so we’ll have to wait and see just how simple this one ends up being.
