GTA V Double RP Event is Live [UPDATE]

By Ashley Woodcock, 2 years ago
Update:

Rockstar have decided to extend the fun of the double rewards weekend all the way to April 20th. The "Capture Weekend" has turned into a "Capture Week"!

We're also extending the 2X GTA$ and RP period that was originally scheduled to end today through next week - so playing any Capture Jobs, including those made with the Creator tools will earn you twice as much GTA$ and RP until the end of the day on Sunday, April 20th.
Thanks https://www.trueachievements.com/Cw+Icecold.htm for bringing this news to our attention.

Original Story:

A new update for Rockstar Games' Grand Theft Auto V is inbound and looks to add and change plenty within the crazy, luxury car-filled, homicidal world that is GTAOnline, as well as a single fix to the campaign of GTA V.

There are plenty of changes to take in, so scroll down this pretty lengthy list nice and slowly and see if any fixes have been made that you may have been waiting for:

Top Changes

• A new Lester ability has been added. Players will now be able to call Lester to have him tell his Cop buddies to turn a blind eye to any crime you may or may not be committing for a short period of time.

All Changes

GTA V Double RP & $ Screens 01


As mentioned in the last GTA V story we covered, Rockstar will also be adding the option for players to create Capture Jobs in GTA Online thanks to the game's Creator Tool that's featured in the game. The creators can make Capture Jobs in any of the Capture variants, these being Contend, GTA, Hold, and Raid.

GTA V Double RP & $ Screens 2


With a few days to spare leading up to the addition of Capture Jobs in the Creation Tool, now is the perfect time to get practicing in Capture Mode. To try and tempt players who are not interested in the mode, Rockstar will be rewarding players with double Rep Points and double GTA dollars to anyone playing games in Capture Mode. Rockstar has also kindly detailed some of their recommended Capture Jobs for us to check out and enjoy as we pocket the extra goods, which, in turn, make becoming Above The Law much shorter work.

Contend: Salty Snatch
Dog walkers and surfing talent agents look out - two import operations at either end of Chumash Beach are fighting over a shipment that's landed on the pier. Any product they can get to their spot in the sand is theirs to keep.

GTA: All Abhorred
Not just for parolees and perverts anymore, a fleet of buses at the Dashound Bus Center in Downtown LS becomes a target for two teams of hoods. They compete to get buses back to their bases on either side of the city, while trying to stop the other team from doing the same.

GTA: Field of Screams
A tractor shortage in Grapeseed leads to farmyard chaos. It's harvest time, and two rival gangs compete to bring a Fieldmaster tractor back to their bases. Farming is a deadly serious business in Blaine County.

Hold: Freight Fight
Two importers fight over rights to a shipment at the Terminal. Scrappy close quarters battle as they try to get as much product to their side of the containers as they can, and protect it when it gets there.

Raid: High Road
Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness: playground for uptight hikers, creepy bird watchers, trail mix enthusiasts and drug runners. Fight a rival crew for the rights to the tunnel shortcut to the Alamo Sea, and put them out of business by taking their product and banking it on your side of the tunnel.

Raid: Wargames
Like any military operation, when things kick off at Fort Zancudo Air Base, they escalate pretty quickly. Teams hoarding their black market profits raid each other's bases at either end of the facility. If they get the goods back, they're banked. Nothing's off limits to be used here, including the fighter jets.
The Double Rep Points & GTA Dollars event and the Title Update 1.12 are both live right now with the Double Rewards event running up until Friday, April 11th. The addition of Capture Job creations in GTAOnline will go live on Friday.
