GTA Online Crimewatch: What's new in Los Santos? (August 27th)

By Tom West,
The criminal activities available in Los Santos are still ticking over this week — head to the sandy shores of GTA Online to find shipwrecks, race new Test Track vehicles, give Lester a call for extra rewards, and more. As always, it's going to be another busy week for players, with more than enough opportunity to nab yourself a good deal...

What’s New?

Southern San Andreas Super Auto's will be selling the highly customisable Karin Sultan RS Classic, which is said to be reliable, safe, controllable, and an "overclocked mod machine."

This week also sees Shipwrecks appearing around the Los Santos coastline, which players can find each day to uncover a piece of a costume and treasure. You can only find one a day and the wreck's location will change — check your Daily Collectibles menu to see if you've picked up the day's treasure.

Free Stuff!

  • Auto Shop Client Jobs: Completing Client Jobs out of your Auto Shop this week will earn you x2 GTA$ and RP, so it's a good time to put your modding skills to the test.
