Yesterday I drove around the beach when I noticed a thick red smoke cloud coming from the ground, near the water. I decided I should investigate, no players were nearby.

 

When I got closer, I was being attacked by a mob of NPC's that had high-grade automatic rifles and they were very numerous. I killed them (somehow with only a pistol) and after they were dead, no more red smoke and nothing.

 

What had just happened there?

It is the Beta for the all-new "Hell" dimension in GTA: Online.

Sounds like a crate drop.

 

After a certain level you get crate drops, it will drop RP, cash and weapons and there are Gun Runners (I think is what they are called) that will attempt to get the package too. IF you don't get it fast enough they will take it off the map. It is the green box with a ? in it on the map.

If it was SP I would say you interupted a drugs drop, maybe have them in Online at some point too.

If you do NOT reach the level required, you can NOT see a mark on the map, even you see a green box drop off to the ground and you break it, you can NOT collect the content...I tried it with one of my friends

I got one of these, i assumed it's Merryweather.  I killed them, got crate, some ammo and $1k in it.  When it happened on my game it was announced by mobile in-game.

THANKS!

 

I am level 4 so this is likely why I got no reward.

Fun fact, the gunrunners dont race you to the crate.

They get there and set up in vantage points and wait for players to arrive, then ambush them.

 

Only if no one comes for a while, do they give up and just claim the crate (despawn the event).
