Valentine’s Week in GTA Online: The New Vapid Hustler, Double GTA$ & RP Modes, Valentine's Discounts & More
| Author: R* K
It's that special time of year when crimes of passion are rife in Los Santos. Singles, couples and polygamists alike — celebrate this week with the introduction of the Vapid Hustler to Legendary Motorsport's inventory, plus debaucherous discounts on favorites from Valentine's past and a host of money-making opportunities to get your juices flowing.
OUT NOW: THE VAPID HUSTLER
The Vapid Hustler is a shining example of what's possible when old-world glamour slinks up next to the modern muscle car and asks "My garage or yours?"
When you see that running board swooping low over the front wheels, that high-set radiator grill and the holder for your cigarette holder, you'll feel like you're back in the 1920s. But then you see the carbon steel reinforcements to the chassis, the turbo charger and the bullbar, and you realize you're somewhere else altogether.
Love (and shrapnel) is in the air. Through February 19th, indulge in a spread of activities with Double GTA$ & RP:
Till Death Do Us Part: Up to four pairs of star-crossed lovers take part in the ultimate GTA Online quadruple date: each couple has one life between them, so remember to look out for your partner - if they die, so do you.
Slasher: The shotgun-wielding Slasher stalks up to seven Hunted, equipped only with flashlights. After three minutes, the Hunted get shotguns of their own to turn the tables on the Slasher.
Resurrection: Nothing says ‘team building exercise’ like bringing your buddy back into the game by shooting some chump on the other team in the back of the head. But remember that it goes both ways - until you’ve wiped them out completely, they can always come back.
Deadline: Suit up and outmaneuver the enemy while mounted upon a blazingly fast Nagasaki Shotaro. Emitting a devastating beam of light in your wake as you ride through the arena, competitors unfortunate enough to come into contact with your trail meet an immediate and fiery end.
Lost vs. Damned: It’s Angels against Devils in the ultimate battle of the soul. Each match flips between day and night for 60 seconds at a clip, with advantages including regenerated Armor and Health and improved weapon options depending on the time – day for the Angels and night for the Devils.
And share the love this Valentine’s Day with Double GTA$ Bodyguard & Associates Salaries for your Organization members.
