As promised, here's the details for this weekend's 4-day Independence Day celebration in GTA Online starting tomorrow. San Andreas will be celebrating the birthplace of freedom with big RP & GTA$ bonuses, patriotic discounts at Ammu-Nation, giveaways and lots more!
GET DOUBLE GTA$ AND DOUBLE RP WHEN PLAYING IN THE INDEPENDENCE DAY SPECIAL EVENT PLAYLIST
The "Independence Day Special Event" Playlist is a special selection of some of the brand new Rockstar-created Jobs published this week including specific Races for new vehicles like the Sovereign motorcycle and the super-sized Liberator monster truck. This weekend only (starting tomorrow), this Playlist will score you Double GTA$ and Double RP
. To access the Playlist, just go to Online > Playlists > Rockstar Created
in the GTA Online Start Menu and select "Independence Day Event" from the options listed. Alternatively, hit the Event button in the GTAV loading screens to launch straight into the Playlist.
75% OFF AIRSTRIKES
Merryweather Security is also getting in on the celebrations with a 75% discount on Airstrikes all weekend
. So if some left-leaning Belgian beer drinker asks for sparkling water at your Blaine County BBQ, you can call in cut-rate backup from friends in very high places. To call in an Airstrike, call Merryweather from your in-game phone, select 'Airstrike' and then drop a flare at your target position.
25% OFF HEAVY AMMO (FOR RPGs, GRENADE LAUNCHERS AND MINIGUNS) - COURTESY OF AMMU-NATION
The good folks at Ammu-Nation believe that all Americans should have access to military-grade weapons without a 'defense budget' price tag. All weekend, they're offering 25% off ammo
for RPGs, Grenade Launchers and Miniguns, because packing enough personal firepower to wipe out a small nation is a right, not a privilege.
FREE PEGASUS DELIVERIES FOR EZ ACCESS TO THE LIBERATOR MONSTER TRUCK
Pegasus Lifestyle Management salutes your independence by giving you the freedom to call in any oversized vehicle at absolutely no charge. Take advantage of the weekend-long offer to get to grips with the brand new Liberator monster truck, and spend 4th of July Weekend crushing cars into the ground like you'd crush beer cans against your own head.
#INDEPENDENCEDAY SNAPMATIC CONTEST
However you're commemorating the Fourth of July this weekend, Rocktar wants to see those Snapmatic pics showing your love for Old Glory. Whether you're rolling over foreign compact cars in the Liberator monster truck or setting off some fireworks in the yard of your new Paleto Bay abode, share your most creative, amusing or beauteous patriotic snaps for a chance to win GTA$1M and an AMERICA vanity license plate for your in-game vehicle.
