Rockstar Games have announced that they will be giving away $500,000 on GTA online for each player during the month of April. Here’s what you’ll need to know about adding that cash to your Maze Bank account.

Since its initial release in 2013, Grand Theft Auto V’s online mode has managed to maintain an impressive player base for all these years with servers still bubbling with fans of the title.

Developers Rockstar Games have been continuing to release frequent content and updates to keep the game fresh, as seen with their massively popular Casino update, and they are now giving away some extra cash to help players out.

GTA Online players can be eligible for a free $500k by simply playing the game.

Following GTA Online’s April Fool’s day update, where the Los Santos map was covered in a layer of snow, Rockstar revealed that they would be implementing quite a few changes on April 2.

The developers explained that a cash gift would be available for anyone who plays GTA Online during the month of April, “All month long, we’re awarding a one-time GTA$500K gift to anyone who plays GTA Online.”

They revealed that once a player has joined a lobby on GTA they would be eligible, although it could take a short while before players would have access to their funds, adding, ”This GTA$ will be automatically sent to your Maze Bank account (may take up to seven days to appear).”

Alongside the $500k gift from Rockstar, in their latest GTA Online update, they revealed that players will earn up to 3x the amount of cash during April compared to the normal rate in certain modes.

Arena Modes, Time Trials, and Premium Repo missions all offer players the chance to stack up on cash and RP in GTA Online with new bonuses.

The latest update also allowed players to save a bit of money with some massive discounts on some of the top vehicles in GTA, giving players the opportunity to make use of their new gift right away.

This is not the first time that Rockstar has given players a massive sum of in-game currency for free although it has been previously done following a special occasion such as the game’s anniversary.


Terrible GTA Online bug makes it impossible to use bunkers

GTA Online players are still having their bunker business missions ruined thanks to a bug that won’t let them enter their not-so-secret base. 

For the longest time, the best way to make money in Grand Theft Auto Online came through jobs and heists. Players would have to grind them out, over and over again, to be able to stack up cash.

Eventually, Rockstar Games brought businesses into the fold – allowing players to make money passively, before having to complete one delivery job at the end for an absolutely huge sum of money. 

The most lucrative of these jobs center around bunkers and the Gunrunning business, where, as the name suggests, you become an arms dealer. However, some players are struggling to run their businesses properly.

Owning a bunker will unlock GTA Online’s Gunrunning business options.

The problem isn’t an overly complicated one, instead, it’s just simple. Players can’t access the bunkers. No matter if they’re on foot or in a car, the yellow circle that you usually use to enter just won’t do anything. 

What that means is, players like Reddit user TheAlphamale82, are left to drive around in circles hoping that something might change. But, sadly, it doesn’t and you end up locked outside the bunker unless you want to restart the game.

However, not even a restart is a magic cure, as the problem can still persist in other lobbies. It really is a peculiar problem – and it is one that is affecting different players. 

[Bug/glitch] R* please fix this, this is getting really annoying. I am unable to resupply my bunker by stealing supplies and before this was recorded someone was having the same problem from GTAV

Others like Aberfergie and r3d-v3n0m noted that they have run into the issue as well, and that they’ve flagged a ticket with Rockstar Support. However, while the devs have supposedly said they’ll work on it, they haven’t found a fix. 

The winter update, which will bring the Cayo Perico heist to GTA Online is right around the corner, and that update should address some issues. Hopefully, the bunker problem is one of them.
