Rockstar Games have rolled out another update for GTA Online. While players might not think the new vehicles top the previous Formula 1 update, there’s still some interesting new content to unpack. 

The game’s developers tend to shuffle the pack on a weekly basis and this week is no different. Those who regularly walk into the Diamond Casino for a free spin of the Lucky Wheel will notice that the podium prize has been rotated out.

Elsewhere, double GTA cash rewards and XP bonuses will be handed to those who play some particular modes, once again, and just logging in will see players pick up some limited edition gifts as well.

So, with a lot to get through, let’s take a look at everything included in the update – courtesy of reliable leaker @TezFunz2. Details should be confirmed later by Rockstar in a news post.

GTA Online update – What’s changed?

Nagasaki Stryder

GTA Wiki
The Stryder has arrived in GTA Online!

The Stryder is this week’s new vehicle in GTA Online.

Those who have their eyes on the newest trike motorcycle to make it into the game will have to put their money where their mouth is, as it will set you back $670,000 from Legendary Motorsport.

GTA Casino Lucky Wheel rewards

GTA Wiki
The Imorgon has been added to the GTA casino podium and can be won on the Lucky Wheel for a limited time.

Every week since the Diamond Casino & Resort opened in GTA 5, a new car has appeared on the Casino podium and can be won for free with just one spin of the Lucky Wheel.

If you’re lucky enough and it lands on the podium car prize, you can pick up a flashy Överflöd Imorgon for nothing. The vehicle is worth $2,165,000 and can be found at Legendary Motorsport, but don’t buy one just yet if you were considering it, because you could grab one here for free between March 5 and March 12.

Double GTA cash & XP, discounts and Twitch Prime rewards

To follow on from that, more GTA Online rewards and discounts have been activated per this update.

Those playing Bunker Adversary Modes, Missile Base Adversary Modes and Bunker Sell Missions will get double GTA cash rewards and XP bonuses for completing them.

Rockstar Games
A load of GTA cash rewards and XP bonuses will be available for selected modes.

Now, let’s run through some of the discounts as well. It’s worth noting Twitch Prime members who have linked their account to their Rockstar Social Club profile are entitled to a further 10% for everything on the list.

  • Ruiner 2000 – 35% off
  • Scramjet – 35% off
  • Sultan RS – 35% off
  • Mobile Operations Center, Renovations, Front and Rear Turrets & Liveries – 35% off

There’s also an exclusive deal for Twitch Prime members, which is a 35% discount on the Zhaba. All players logging in during the next week, lasting between March 5-12, will also get two in-game tshirts for free.

So, there you have it! That’s everything we know about GTA Online’s March 5 update so far, according to leaked information. If there’s anything else announced by Rockstar in an official blog post, we’ll keep you updated.

It’s time for your GTA 5 Halloween update patch notes. For the spooky season, we will see the return of those pesky Peyote Plants, an expensive Casino car you can get for free, limited time game mode cash boosts – and much more! 

It seems like GTA 6 is years away at this point, so these weekly updates for GTA Online will help to keep the game fresh and keep its large player base more than satisfied.

Information for the newest GTA Online update has leaked ahead of time as usual – thanks to Twitter’s TezFunz2 – and it means we can present all the information to you now.

Here’s everything you need to know about this week’s GTA 5 Halloween update patch notes.

GTA Online October 22 update: Patch notes

Casino rewards vehicle

The S80RR in GTA V
Rockstar Games
This sparkling beauty is now yours. Enjoy.

The standout selection of the new content is of course the S80RR. Classed as a ‘Super’ car, this bad boy would normally set you back about $2,500,000.

According to the GTA Wiki website: “The S80RR was designed to do two things. First, to be the predominant endurance racer of its era. Second, to make so few concessions to the physical comfort and psychological wellbeing of the driver that getting as far as the end of your driveway risks multiple organ failure, an irrecoverable nervous breakdown, and absolutely no regrets whatsoever.”

So spin that wheel, and get yourself behind the wheel.
