Grand Theft Auto Online Weekly Update

By | 01/03/2018

It is that time of the week we all look forward to in Grand Theft Auto Online, the massively popular online component of the hugely successful Grand Theft Auto V, and that is the GTA Online weekly update.

This week’s GTA Online weekly update sees a brand new vehicle, money and RP bonuses, more discounts, and new premium races.

GTA Online New Vehicle

This week’s GTA Online new vehicle is the Pfister Comet SR which is available through in-game website Legendary Motorsport for $1,145,000. I have to say that this particular vehicle is simply beautiful.

Seemingly based on Porsche vehicles the Pfister vehicles are stunningly beautiful and immensely powerful, yet they do not break the bank as much as some of the other GTA Online vehicles on the in-game vehicle purchase website Legendary Motorpsort.

Here’s what Rockstar has to say about the Pfister Comet SR:

Like everyone in Los Santos, you’ve got fond memories of the original Pfister Comet. Cruising through Vinewood with a bellyful of Bull Shark Testosterone dropping alpha sized one-liners about the size of your bonus… Picking up hitchhikers and passing them off as your fiancé at family gatherings or losing the LSPD in a straight line along the main drag.

This race-tuned bullet is built for only one thing: to make everyone else look like the asthmatic kid in gym class. Pick up the Pfister Comet SR sports car at Legendary Motorsport today.

GTA Online Double RP and Cash

This week’s GTA Online double RP and cash bonuses are pretty generous and seem to carry on last week’s theme of encouraging the use of illegal business to make money, probably because Rockstar have a big GTA online update due for release in the coming weeks and wants players to have the cash to participate in said GTA online update.

Also, if you logged in between 16/02/2018 and 27/02/2018 then check your Maze Bank account because you might have some bonus cash which Rockstar were giving away as part of a GTA Online stimulus package last week.

Note: In-game cash may not be in your Maze Bank account until 06/03/2018.

To take a shot at this week’s Time Trial, set a waypoint to the marker on your in-game map and enter via the purple corona. Beat par time and you’ll be duly rewarded with GTA$ & RP.

See You Next Wednesday…

This week’s GTA Online weekly update once again appears to be quite generous.

One can only speculate and look forward as to what Rockstar Games are planning as the fact that they are giving away free money, offering decent GTA Online cash and RP bonuses and generous discounts on some of the most powerful hardware that GTA Online vehicles has to offer.

The coming weeks will certainly be exciting and I for one will be taking some short trips to San Andreas.

Thanks for reading and have fun in GTA Online.

    Really looking forward to receiving my free money this week. That new Pfister is looking good.

    Pfister Comet SR for racing around the streets of Los Santos or a P996-Lazer to take to the skies? Strictly for “defense” purposes of course.
