Double RP and GTA$ Events in Grand Theft Auto V August 19th-25th

By Kelly Packard, 1 year ago
Hardly does a week pass by without Rockstar announcing a new event for Grand Theft Auto V's online mode. Those familiar with the events know they often bring login bonuses, double RP and GTA$ playlists, discounts on in-game goodies and more. This week is no different.

If you're still trying to grind your character to level 100, you'll no doubt have your eye on the double RP playlists. This week there are two game modes in which you can earn double RP and GTA$ —Stunt Races and Entourage mode. Keep in mind there is a caveat that it's Rockstar-created stunt races; there won't be double XP for racing on custom player-created maps this time around. There are also three new Entourage maps for you to try out.

As noted in the image above, you can receive a free red jumpsuit just for logging in any time while the event is active. The in-game discounts this time around consist of 25% off select supercars including the Grotti X80 Proto, Dewbauchee Seven-70, Progen Tyrus and the Vapid Desert Raid. There is also a 50% discount on HVY Insurgents and the Heist completion requirement normally needed to purchase these vehicles has been removed for the event. Last but not least this week's Ammu-Nation discounts consist of 50% off Sniper Rifles, Miniguns, Launchers and Ammo. The event is already live in-game and will be active until Thursday, August 25th. Unfortunately for last-gen players, these events are only active on current-gen systems, which Rockstar categorizes as Xbox One, PS4 and PC.
