GTA 5 Online Update: Stockpile Bonus, Free Money and Half-track in Casino
Thursday 21st May 2020
Grand Theft Auto 5 has published its weekly update to GTA Online, and you know what that means: more cars, bonuses and GTA$ to grab.
GTA 5 is free to download but only for a few more hours on PC via the Epic Games Store. Go grab it before the discount is removed forever.
Beyond this though, there's another massive weekly update to GTA Online for players to enjoy. For many new players, this is a new experience, so here's the gist.
Every Thursday, Rockstar starts a new event week. It means new discounts, new podium cars in the casino and plenty of new GTA$ and RP Bonuses spread throughout the game.
Normally each week has a theme, and this week, it appears to be based on the games Smuggler's Run update, which first dropped back in 2017. For those who don't know, here's what you need to know:
"With a name that's a nod to an early classic from the Rockstar Games catalog, Smuggler's Run opens up the air corridors above Los Santos and Blaine County, providing new business opportunities while introducing a range of planes, choppers and even ultralights as highly viable options for transporting criminal cargo across the state - simultaneously opening up some creative new methods of dispatching any rival gangs along the way." - Rockstar Newswire.
We should learn about the official GTA 5 patch notes from today's weekly update when they're released by Rockstar Games later today on the newswire. And it might be that they reveal a few more details not already highlighted below.
But ahead of time, the games dedicated player base has revealed some of the key changes with this week's new GTA Online weekly patch.
For the full overview of what to expect from this update, take a look below - we'll make sure to keep you updated as soon possible should any more information about the update arrive.

GTA Online new vehicles
Once again, Rockstar is avoiding releasing any new vehicles into the game, but there is another new car available for free from the games Diamond Casino Resort podium.
The podium vehicle this week is the beastly Bravado Half-track, a military truck added as part of the Gunrunning update.
Here's a quick look at the Half Track description:
"The Half-track might look like it's having a really dangerous identity crisis, but trust us, it works. The all-terrain capabilities of a tank, with all the advantages of a truck: straightforward handling, a spacious, prostitute-friendly cabin, and lots of fresh air for the lunatic on the .50 cal in the back." - Warstock Cache & Carry description.
The Half Track would normally set you back a pricey $2,254,350 (Trade Price - $1,695,000). If you can get one for free for spinning the Casino wheel, you'll be pleased no doubt.
GTA Online Twitch Prime Rewards
At the time of writing, no new Twitch Prime or PlayStation Plus bonuses have been officially announced.
However, you should still be able to access the existing reward, which includes GTA$1,000,000 and access to Pixel Pete's Arcade property.
All you need to do is link your Twitch Prime account to your Social Club account, which can be done inside the Social Club account settings.
Should Rockstar announce anything further in their official blog post, we'll be sure to update.
