The GTA Online May 16 weekly update patch notes are here and there is a new robbery vehicle up for grabs. So, here’s everything you need to know about Rockstar’s newest GTA update.

As regular GTA Online players will know, Rockstar provides a new update each week, adding or switching around content. This usually includes login bonuses, boosted rewards for specific missions, featured races, and a whole lot more.

The past 12 months have been a big one for Rockstar Games and Grand Theft Auto with tons of drama and news involving GTA 6. The long-awaited sequel was revealed last year, as Rockstar finally dropped a trailer. However, things have gone quiet for now.

We’re still waiting for more info on the GTA 6 front, and the GTA Online follow-up, but until that time, let’s see what’s been added in the most recent GTA 5 update on May 16, 2024. These are the full patch notes.


GTA Online weekly update patch notes (May 16)

New GTA Online content added

The last few weeks of GTA Online updates have been chock full of new content – including new police cars, the Wildlife Photography Challenge, a drip-feed of new jobs, the addition of Drag Races, and a brand new heist – The Cluckin’ Bell Farm Raid.

While there had a slowdown on new content, that has changed this week. There is a new robbery vehicle to be had – the Übermacht Cypher – via the Gangbanger Robbery.

There are also some good bonuses for players who love to go airborne too. But we’ll get to those in a little bit.

Prize Ride Challenge Vehicle

This week’s GTA Online Prize Ride car to acquire is the Vapid Dominator ASP. You’ll need to place Top 5 in the LS Car Meet Series for four days in a row to get it.

Lucky Wheel podium reward vehicle: Karin Sultan Classic

You can pick up the Karin Sultan Classic this week as it is featured on the Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel as the reward. You could get it for free if your luck is in – or you know how to win every time.

Which GTA Online missions have the highest payout?

As of May 16, 2024, the GTA Online mission with the highest payout is still the Cayo Perico Heist. Though, it’s not as lucrative as it once was – much to the annoyance of players.

3-2x GTA$ and RP opportunities

There are a few 3-2x GTA$ and RP opportunities this week. Sadly, that incredibly lucrative 5x Taxi Work is gone again, but hopefully it’ll be back before too long.

3X GTA$ & RP

  • Drop Zone
  • Junk Energy Skydives

2X GTA$ & RP

  • Air Races

Free GTA Online bonuses

As noted, the big bonus from the last few weeks – the Obey 8F Drafter – is no longer up for grabs. So, if you missed out, bad luck.

Instead, there are some bonuses this week for logging in and others for grinding away.
