Rockstar Games has released a new GTA Online weekly update on October 14. The changes include a new Podium vehicle, log-in rewards, and various limited-time discounts. So, let’s run through the patch notes as we find what’s new.

As regular players of GTA 5 will be all too aware, there’s one big update every week in-game. This usually includes a number of login bonuses, boosted rewards for specific missions, featured races, and a few goodies thrown in there as well.

2021 is going to be a big year in terms of new content as well. Rockstar has already confirmed plans to roll out a GTA Online next-gen version, with a whole host of never-before-seen stuff. However, that’s all a waiting game.


Until that time, let’s see what’s been added in the most recent GTA 5 update. We’ve got the full patch notes, courtesy of the GTA Online subreddit.

GTA Online weekly update patch notes (October 14)

New Vehicle: Dinka RT3000

The RT3000 is the new Prize Ride in this week’s update.

This week’s new Prize Ride addition is the Dinka RT3000, a muscle car that’s definitely worth adding to your collection.

While it would usually set players back GTA$1,715,000 (trade price of GTA$1,286,250), it’s also this week’s Prize Ride.

To earn it, you’ll need to place top 4 in 8 Pursuit Series races. Check out the description below from Southern San Andreas:

“There’s more power behind the Dinka RT3000 than the Palmer-Taylor Power Station when they break out the party dust, start the rave, and let the reactor do its thing. It’s not a complicated formula, but it works.”


Lucky Wheel podium reward vehicle: Peyote Gasser

The Peyote Gasser is featured on the Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel rewards, meaning you could get it for free if your luck is in – or you know how to win every time.
