GTA Online Crimewatch: What's new in Los Santos? (July 23rd)

By Tom West,
Now that GTA Online: Los Santos Tuners has been released, Rockstar Games has detailed a host of rewards themed around the city’s car meets that will be available over the next week, as well as event bonuses for select missions.

It’s time to delve into our second edition of GTA Online: Crimewatch, although, this week doesn’t bring much in the way of new content due to GTA Online: Los Santos Tuners having released, which you can read all about in our previous article. It does bring plenty in the way of goodies, potential goodies, and earned rewards, though, so let’s dive in and have a look.

If you participated in the Meet Up last week — by playing GTA Online between July 15th and July 19th — make sure you log in this week to redeem your Los Santos Customs Tee. If you also managed to take part in an impromptu race and/or stole a vehicle and sold it to LS Customs during the Meet Up, you’ll also have earned yourself the LS Customs Tour Jacket and/or LS Customs Coveralls, respectively.

Everything this week is themed around the game’s latest update, naturally, starting with two new t-shirts from Born X Raised. Head to any clothing store in Los Santos to pick up the Black Born X Raised tee and complete a Robbery Contract Finale to earn yourself the White Born X Raised tee — delivered to you within 72 hours of logging in after August 2nd.

If you decided to fork out the GTA$50,000 for a Los Santos Car Meet membership, you’ll be entitled to earn a few rewards thanks to your new standing, as well as the Ron Racing Livery for the Pfister Comet S2 (which releases next week). So, those rewards we are talking about: just entering the LS Car Meet this week will net you the LS Customs Varsity Jacket, while working your way up to Car Meet Membership Rank 20 before August 17th will earn you GTA$250K pocket money. If you’re going to be working your way through the ranks you might as well take part in a Sprint Challenge while you’re at it to snag yourself the Rockstar Yellow Pattern Tee. Just by logging in this week, you’ll earn yourself a free Race and Chase Arcade Cabinet that’ll appear inside your Auto Shop Property — whenever you purchase one, that is.

The Los Santos Tuners update also brought the new Prize Ride Challenges to GTA Online, which you can see on the back of the LS Customs-branded Slamtruck. Now you’ll have a chance to win the featured ride by completing the Weekly Challenge. Place in the top three in a Street Race for three days in a row by July 27th to win the Annis Remus.

As with all events in GTA Online, select activities will be offering bonus rewards, although nothing too major this week due to all the additions from the update. In keeping with the car-themed splendor this week, the San Andreas Super Sport Series will be throwing out double rewards — if you can pull yourself away from the Car Meet, that is. Don’t forget to head over to the Diamond Casino for a chance to win yourself an Ocelot Lynx to show off to your pals. Of course, there are plenty of discounts to take part in, which you can find below:

  • Annis Savestra – 40% off
  • BF Club – 40% off
  • Elegy Retro Custom – 30% off
