As Halloween season hits fever pitch this week,things are out-of-this-world unusual in GTA Online.

Double Rewards on Alien Survivals + Business Battle Bonuses

Wrap your creepy humanoid feelers around a futuristic laser weapon and batten down against the armed earthlings for as long as possible – Alien Survivals are paying out double to all players this week.

Meanwhile, there are whispers that a downed unidentified flying object has been hauled off to Fort Zancudo for testing. Most of the information is redacted, but the basics are simple: work together in this new Business Battle to take out the Merryweather agents and then haul whatever extraterrestrial gear you can grab to Omega’s shack, ASAP.
