GTA Online Crimewatch: What's new in Los Santos? (January 22nd)

By Tom West,
This week has been quiet for Rockstar-related news, but GTA Online's Los Santos looks towards an electric future, and offers up additional bonuses for in-game events, as well as the usual goodies we've come to expect each week. Grab your gun, call your homies, and hit the beaches of Los Santos!

What’s new?

There isn't much going on in GTA Online this week that's especially new, to be totally honest, aside from the fact that the Obey I-Wagen is now available at Southern San Andrea Super Autos. It's an all-electric SUV that offers you the chance to help protect the planet while you spray your enemies with lead. If anything, it'll offset your carbon footprint when blasting through all of your explosives.

Free stuff!

Who doesn’t like freebies? This week has a few of the usual suspects available such as Test Track vehicles and Diamond Casino Podium prizes.
  • Lucky Wheel: Head over to the Diamond Casino & Resort before January 26th to claim your free spin on The Lucky Wheel, and be in with a chance of winning RP, GTA$, clothing, snacks, and more. If you’re super lucky you might even win this week’s podium prize: the Declasse Drift Tampa!
  • Test Track: Three vehicles are available for players to test drive at the LS Car Meet's Test Track this week: Emperor Vectre, Karin Previon, and the Pfister Comet S2.

Events & Bonuses

Unlike the easy gains above, these offers require you to put in a little effort — that doesn't necessarily make it a bad thing, though.
  • Simeon Contact: All of Simeon's Contact and Premium Deluxe Repo Work Missions are paying out x3 GTA$ and RP this week.
  • Hardest Target: Competing on the Hardest Target game mode this week will earn you x2 GTA$ and RP — good luck with trying to survive it, though!
  • South Central Leak Finale: Grab Dr Dre's missing track from the Families and the Ballas' meet-up during the South Central Leak Finale this week, and you'll earn yourself x2 GTA$ and RP.
  • Agency Weapon Finish: If you've unlocked and purchased an Agency Weapon Finish from the Agency's Armoury, you'll automatically be sent GTA$200K — or is that incentive enough for you to do it this week?
  • Prize Ride: LS Car Meet members who take part in the Pursuit Series races this week, and win a race five days in a row, will earn the Karin Calico GTF.
