GTA Online players have an easy way to earn cash and RP this week, with parachute races offering tripled rewards just for competing. Here’s everything you need to know to get into the action and make sure you don’t miss out. 

Even though GTA V released almost seven years ago, millions of players still flood into Los Santos every month to play the game’s Online mode, which allows residents to drive around the city, engage in fights with other players, and even complete heists to earn mountains of cash to spend.

Of course, there are other ways to pad your bank account though, with races taking place all over the San Andreas county. From cars to motorbikes, planes to BMXs, there’s sure to be a competition that appeals to the racer inside you.

This week though, it’s all about parachutes, with Rockstar offering major rewards to anyone who competes in them, without the need to even win the races. Here’s how you can get involved.

Where to enter parachute races in GTA Online

Joining a parachute race is extremely easy, as you don’t even have to travel anywhere in Los Santos to enter. Simply open the pause menu, and scroll over to the Jobs section. Move over to the Rockstar Created tab, and move down to the last option, where you will find parachute races. There will be plenty to choose from, but all offer the same tripled rewards, so just pick whichever takes your fancy and join the lobby.

Once in the lobby, you can then decide if you want to bet on yourself if you’re feeling confident and want to make a little extra money. The race will start, you’ll be tossed out of an airplane, and you’ll have to glide through the blue checkpoint rings to the finish, earning extra points if you hit them dead-centre.

Players receive two parachutes, so don’t worry if you accidentally close one, but you will receive a points deduction if your race ends with your GTA Online character slamming into the ground.

Step-by-step guide to joining GTA Online parachute races

  1. Open GTA V on your PC, Xbox One, or PS4 and join GTA Online.
  2. Once in the mode, open the pause menu.
  3. Scroll over to Jobs, then select the ‘Rockstar Created’ tab. At the bottom will be a selection of parachute races.
  4. Select a race, join the lobby, and wait for the competition to begin.

GTA Online Black Friday update: Huge sales, Open Wheel bonuses, more

Rockstar Games have got a Grand Theft Auto Online update that plays into Black Friday with a whole host of sales for vehicles, businesses, and buildings. 

GTA Online’s weekly updates are always something to look forward to for fans, as Rockstar Games rolls out some bonuses so that players can build up their Maze Bank accounts. 

The bonuses, both for cash and RP, are the big attention grabbers from the updates, but the sales that Rockstar also drops are nothing to be ignored either. You can save quite a lot on a car that you want or a business you want to own. 

With Black Friday getting underway in the real world – marking a few days of sales – Rockstar have also joined in the fun with some pretty interesting discounts as well. 

Open Wheel races bonuses – 2x Cash & RP

As already noted, the bonuses are the biggest part of the weekly updates, so we’ll start there. This week, starting November 26, is all about Open Wheel Races for double rewards while King of the Hill pays out triple. 

The bonuses for Open Wheel races are not limited to one or two select tracks, but you will have to jump into a Rockstar Created race to earn the bonus. The best way to check this is to simply join a race from the pink F1 car icons that are dotted around the map.

If a lobby then decides to vote for a non-Rockstar Created race, simply back out and find a different lobby. You’ll have up to December 9th to earn the bonus rewards.
