It’s that time of the week again and as always Rockstar Games have shipped out another GTA Online update. From a new podium vehicle to exclusive log-in unlocks, there’s plenty to get excited about in this week’s patch.

Rockstar’s weekly updates to GTA Online alongside major additions such as the Cayo Perico Heist ensure players always have something to look forward to. Not a week goes by without new discounts, cars to buy, or exclusive log-in rewards to claim.

This week is no different, with leaker TezFunz2 revealing exactly what’s being added in the January 14 patch. Without further ado, let’s jump into the update and see what Rockstar has in store for us this week.

GTA Online update patch notes: January 14


Toreador on GTA Online
Rockstar Games
The Toreador is this week’s podium vehicle.

The Toreador will be added to the GTA Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel rewards in this week’s update.

Manufactured by Pegassi, the Toreador would usually set you back around $3.6 million from Warstocks Cache & Carry. However, a spin of the lucky wheel this week may just bag you the exquisite vehicle completely free of charge.

Manchez Scout

Alongside the new podium vehicle, the Manchez Scout is now available to purchase from Warstocks Cache & Carry for $225,000.

This military motorcycle can be found in various locations across Cayo Perico. So, it’s great that players can finally pick up one for themselves.

MrDalekJD has opened up on his biggest wishes for Call of Duty: Warzone in the future on the CharlieIntel podcast, including more storytelling and a new map.

Jon ‘MrDalekJD’ Hutchinson is a beloved figure in the Call of Duty scene. Even though his content revolves around Zombies, he’s played the game for many years now, and the community values his opinions.

So, when asked on the CharlieIntel podcast what he’d like to see happen from Warzone in the future, people were listening. Spoiler alert, it’s in line with what most other players hope to see too.

MrDalekJD is known for his videos on Call of Duty: Zombies.

“The thing with Warzone is they [got] pretty good, well it seemed at the time, really good at telling an underlying story that was being slowly unraveled every season,” he said. “It was all to do with the rockets and Bunker 11 and Bunker 10 and all that. It was amazing.”

“I think if they just continue with that, that’s enough to keep me happy,” he added. “But I do think we are due for a new map. I love Verdansk to pieces. It’s a fantastic map. Massive props to Infinity Ward and Raven on that because it’s incredible.”

“But I think it is time for Treyarch to step in and bring in a new Cold War-themed Warzone map,” he said. It’s something that most players want and expect, and it seems like it’s only a matter of time before it happens.

MrDalekJD isn’t alone in his views, especially when it comes to wanting a new map. Verdansk has been fantastic, but it’s become a little stale to veteran players, and the show must go on.

Black Ops Cold War has already been out for several months now. So, a new Warzone map can’t be too far away. However, there still has been no official word on when we can expect it.

Until then, all we can do is sit back, relax, and twiddle our thumbs while we wait.
