'Grand Theft Auto Online' Introduces Junk Energy Skydives, Flight School Activities, Rewards, Bonuses, GTA+ Benefits, Discounts And More

by Rainier on Sept. 29, 2022 @ 8:57 a.m. PDT

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.

Junk Energy has just launched their latest venture, Junk Energy Skydives – an all-new series of 10 daily Skydive challenges scattered across the Los Santos and Blaine County, offering GTA Online’s adrenaline junkies a new way to earn rewards, including a Junk Energy branded Chute Bag, all while showing off their aerial precision.

Presenting Junk Energy Skydives

Junk Energy knows that caffeine and adrenaline are the lifeblood of the Southern San Andreas lifestyle, and their latest marketing push offers prizes to those daring enough to enter the high-risk, high-reward world of extreme sports.

Junk Energy Skydives are a new activity for those unafraid of heights and risking life and limb: look for Parachute Bags on rooftops and at Junk Energy-branded cabins/kiosks around Los Santos and Blaine County to start a Skydive challenge. Once activated, you’ll need to take a leap, parachute through checkpoints, and aim for the drop zone. If you’re still conscious when you land, you’ll receive some GTA$ courtesy of the company and a branded Junk Energy Chute Bag, to boot.

Ten Junk Energy Skydives will be available to take on each day — completing all ten will award an additional GTA$ bonus. Completing all ten to a Gold Medal standard will award an extra prize purse as well — paying out GTA$150K total along with the Junk Energy Chute for your efforts.

Get Into the Spirit with the Free Orange Tech Demon Mask

There’s an uncanny chill to the air as Halloween draws near. Be on the lookout for particularly ghoulish events taking place throughout the month of October, and play GTA Online anytime this week to earn the Orange Tech Demon mask upon logging in.

2X GTA$ and RP on Turf Wars

Stake your claim and prepare to stand your ground against your enemies. Two to four teams duke it out in vehicles on colorful platforms set high above local landmarks — claim others’ territory while protecting your own in Turf Wars to earn 2X GTA$ and RP, all week long.

2X GTA$ and RP on Smuggler Sell Missions

If the shelves in your Hangar are swelling and sagging under the weight of valuable contraband, unload it in Smuggler Sell Missions to turn a profit that includes 2X GTA$ and RP.

There’s more good news for aspiring aviators, with Hangars and their associated Upgrades and Modifications all 40% off this week, making it easier to get your foot in the door of the black market. The bad news is that you might be very, very sick.

2X GTA$ and RP on Flight School Activities

Get comfortable in the cockpit — practicing barrel rolls, divebombs, and other maneuvers at the San Andreas Flight School that will result in Double Rewards through October 5.

Only on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S

  • Premium Test Ride: The Grotti Brioso R/A: Visit Hao’s Special Works at the LS Car Meet to check out this week’s Premium Test Ride — a super-charged version of the diminutive Grotti Brioso R/A that shows you big things often come in comically undersized packages.
  • This Week’s HSW Time Trial: Put your upgrades to the ultimate test by slamming the accelerator and taking in the blurry sights and sounds warped by the Doppler effect as you make your way between Textile City and Stab City in this week’s HSW Time Trial.

Premium Deluxe Motorsport Showroom
Visit Simeon’s Showroom and take a leisurely look at the details of this week’s featured models, or take them for a five-minute test drive before buying:

Lucky Wheel Podium and LS Car Meet Vehicles

If variety is the spice of life, then this week would have three chili peppers next to it on the menu. Visit The Diamond Casino & Resort and give the Lucky Wheel a spin for a shot at the Übermacht SC1 on the nearby podium.

Elsewhere, the Pegassi Infernus Classic perched atop the Slamvan at the heart of the LS Car Meet is yours if you can finish Top 2 in the Street Race Series for three days in a row. Nearby, the Test Track is offering up free rides in the Annis ZR350, the Dinka Jester Classic, and Dewbauchee JB 700.
