How to get GTA Online’s special weapons for free: Railgun & more

Grand Theft Auto Online players on PS4 can get a raft of special weapons, including much sought after ammo for the Fireworks Launcher, for free just by joining one job in particular.

While the majority of GTA V is pretty realistic, Rockstar does let out their weird and wacky side every so often. Just look at the Arena War cars in GTA Online, they’re completely crazy and fun but you wouldn’t see one rolling through the streets of Los Angeles in real life. 

Outside of cars, though, the iconic game developers will also stretch the boundaries when it comes to weapons. There are completely ridiculous weapons like the Up-N-Atomizer, but you also have things like the Fireworks Launcher.

While some players don’t have the cash needed to own the craziest weapons in GTA Online, clever PS4 players have swooped in with a helping hand.

The Railgun is pretty deadly against GTA foes.

That’s right, if you’re on PS4, you can get weapons like the Fireworks Launcher, Railgun, and Stun Gun for free just by taking part in a particular job.

That job comes from Husky_70_1 on the Rockstar Social Club and it hasn’t got a secret name or anything like that. It’s just simply called Free Special Weapons. 

Alls you have to do, if you’re on PS4, is bookmark the job and then start it with a second player. Load up your weapon wheel with the special weapons, and play out the job. Once its done, you’ll be able to use the weapons until you find a new session.

Even though you’ll lose the weapons in a new session, if you own the Fireworks Launcher already, you can just stock up on ammo. That’s pretty useful given Ammu-Nation stocks can run low. 

Now, Xbox and PC players will, obviously, be feeling left out, but they can’t play the job unless someone decides to remake it for their particular platforms.

A leaked GTA Online mission revolving around a new looks UFO finally looks set to be added to the game just inside for Halloween.

In every Grand Theft Auto game, there has some sort of secret that has caused the community to go wild and search for both clues and answers. With GTA V, that has been all about UFOs. 

Players have been searching high and low for some sort of Alien takeover or a controllable UFO, but for the most part, they’ve come up with nothing – bar the floating UFOs that appeared in the early days of the game’s release. 

However, in recent months, players have been able to crack the code on one GTA Online job that revolves around a new look UFO and the Fort Zancudo location.

GTA Online UFO Business Battle mission

The Business Battle, which was uncovered by The Game File Gurus back at the end of August, showed that players would need to head to the hangar in Fort Zancudo and collect spaceship parts. 

Ever since the job was uncovered, players have been asking when it would be released, and it looks like it could be coming soon. On October 22, Rockstar insider TezFun tweeted “Yes, most likely,” in response to a question that asked if the job would be available with the October 29 update.

“It makes sense for them to keep it till next week, to include Oct 31st within the event window,” Tez added, before further noting that the job is still disabled and being “reserved for next week.”

As Tez notes, the Halloween event still has juice left in it since it only went live on October 22, and should run until at least the beginning of November – where there will be another weekly update to bring it to a close.

Should the Business Battle be added, it could be a limited-time one like we’ve seen in the past, so you might have to act fast if you want to get involved. Though, only time will time how long it sticks around.
