GTA Online: New events, best deals, additions, and GTA+ bonuses (May 14th)

By Tom West,

GTA Online will offer, not double, not triple, but quadruple rewards on Freeroam activities this week, and that's for everyone, GTA+ or not. Of course, all of the usual bonuses and goodies will also be available.

Rockstar Games is feeling overly generous this week by offering all GTA Online players quadruple bonuses for partaking in Freeroam challenges and events, as well as some tasty discounts on a host of vehicles. GTA+ members on Xbox Series X|S can still grab this month's goodies, which should be available for another two weeks. Let's dive in and see what we can pilfer this week...

GTA Online's freebies, events, bonuses, and discounts for all players (Ends May 18th)

The weekly GTA Online bonuses are available for all players across Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One, aside from the specifically stated Hao's Special Works, which is for Xbox Series X|S only. Head to Los Santos and reap the rewards that a life of criminal enterprise can give you.

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 May 18th 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 Ocelot Ardent!
  • Test Track: Three vehicles are available for players to test drive at the LS Car Meet's Test Track this week: Declasse Mamba, Pfister 811, and Pegassi Toros.

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.
  • Freeroam Events & Challenges: Causing chaos in Los Santos' open world this week through Freeroam Events and Challenges will earn you x4 GTA$ and RP. Additionally, if you complete any three Freeroam Challenges this week, you'll be sent GTA$200K, which isn't too shabby at all.
  • Motor Wars: Have you got a death wish but also a love of money? Well, if you put your life on the line in Motor Wars this week you'll earn x2 GTA$ and RP.
  • Prize Ride: LS Car Meet members who take part in the Street Races this week, and place in the top three for three days in a row, will earn the Bravado Verlierer.
Xbox Series X|S only
Thanks to Hao's Special Works, players on Xbox Series X|S will be offered exclusive activities each week on top of the other events and bonuses.
  • Time Trial: Head to Hao's Special Works this week to see how some of his heavily modified vehicles handle the latest HSW Time Trial between East Vinewood and Vespucci Beach.
  • Test Ride: Hao is offering players a chance to take the heavily modified Shitzu Hakuchou Drag for a test drive this week. Don't forget that you can purchase Hao's rides straight from the podium if you like what you see.
