'Grand Theft Auto Online' Concludes The Heists Event With New Challenge, GTA+ Benefits, Discounts And More

by Rainier on Nov. 22, 2022 @ 10:52 a.m. PST

Set in the sprawling city of Los Santos and the surrounding area, Grand Theft Auto V delivers a world of unprecedented scale and detail bursting with life, from mountaintops to the depths of the ocean.

When a young street hustler, a retired bank robber and a terrifying psychopath find themselves entangled with some of the most frightening and deranged elements of the criminal underworld, the U.S. government and the entertainment industry, they must pull off a series of dangerous heists to survive in a ruthless city in which they can trust nobody, least of all each other.

Switch between the interconnected lives of Michael, Trevor and Franklin as they embark on a series of heists across Los Santos and Blaine County in the biggest, deepest and richest open world experience yet, with game world enhancements that include new wildlife, upgraded weather and damage effects, and an array of new details to discover.

Grand Theft Auto V also comes with Grand Theft Auto Online, the dynamic and ever-evolving online universe for up to 30 players, and includes all existing gameplay upgrades and content released since the launch of Grand Theft Auto Online.

Rise through the ranks to become a CEO of your own criminal empire by trading contraband or form a Motorcycle Club and rule the streets. Pull off daring co-operative Heists, enter adrenaline-fueled Stunt Races, compete in unique Adversary Modes or create your own content to play and share with the entire GTA community.

The Heists Event Culminates with an All-New Heist Challenge

Two years ago, the GTA Online community obliterated our GTA$100 billion target in The Heist Challenge and pulled down a staggering GTA$1 trillion. This year, to put a proper cap on The Heists Event, we are putting out a call across Los Santos and Blaine County for all thieves, wheelmen, hackers, and Heist tacticians to double your previous efforts.

Put your criminal instincts to the ultimate test and score big in the all-new Heist Challenge. Burgle alongside the community this week and hit a cumulative grand total of GTA$2 TRILLION to unlock a special reward coming later this year.

Take part in any Heist Finale now through November 30 to bag your part towards the community goal. Whichever Heist you’re scoping out, bear in mind that all players can earn 2X GTA$ and RP on The Pacific Standard Job this week (and also receive the Pacific Standard Sweater for completing the Finale).

There's also still 2X GTA$ and RP on all Setup Missions in classic Heists and 1.5X GTA$ and RP on all Prep Missions for The Doomsday Heist.

The Übermacht Sentinel Classic Widebody Available Now

The Übermacht Sentinel Classic was already the kind of rally-ready blank canvas that mod freaks only get once in a generation. Where to go from there? Only Benny knows...

Upgrade your Übermacht Sentinel Classic with a Widebody customization at Benny's Original Motor Works, available now.

Get the Wasted! and Rampage T-Shirts

You could take your hard-earned Heist money to Ponsonbys and buy yourself some new designer threads, but there’s something about free stuff that just feels right. Play GTA Online any time this week and get a pair of in-game shirts adorned with iconic symbols of Grand Theft Auto's 25-year history — the Wasted! Tee and Rampage Tee — no stolen cash required.

Collect The Pacific Standard Sweater

Successfully fleecing the bank in The Pacific Standard Job will land you a literal fleece — the rare Pacific Standard Sweater, to be precise — meaning you can mock your corporate victims, flaunt your criminal cred, and rep an international banking heavyweight all at the same time.

2.5X GTA$ and RP on Pursuit Races

A successful criminal is only as good as their last getaway. Practice evading arrest as you race against other drivers and the LSPD in Pursuit Races and get 2.5X GTA$ and RP all week long.

Bodyguards and Associates Earn 2.5X GTA$

You can’t run a company if you're six feet underground at Vinewood Cemetery. This is easily avoidable if you have trained and skilled colleagues scoping out potential threats so the CEOs can focus on what’s important — extorting the public and evading taxes. This week, the profits trickle down to Bodyguards and Associates, who’ll earn 2.5X their usual salary in the line of duty.

2.5X GTA$ and RP on Martin Madrazo Contact Missions

For businessman Martin Madrazo, the line between friend and foe is as thin as his patience. Get on his good side this week by successfully completing his Contact Missions and earning 2.5X GTA$ and RP.

2.5X GTA$ and RP on Hunting Pack (Remix) Adversary Mode

Multitasking is an acquired skill, but you’d be surprised how quickly you can juggle several things at once under the right amount of pressure — like driving the MTL Dune on a racetrack suspended in the air as Scramjets attack you from all sides.

Survive, attack, and defend in this satisfyingly chaotic Adversary Mode to earn 2.5X GTA$ and RP before it’s gone on November 30.
