Weekly Event (16th May 2024) - Go from Ship to Sky with Bonuses on Air Races, Junk Energy Skydives, a New Claimable Salvage Yard Car, and More!

This week and until 22nd May, it's time to leave captaincy of your ship and take it a step further into the skies! Drop into a battlezone and remain victorious in Drop Zone, BASE jump whilst sponsoring your favourite energy drink, race through the air whilst killing your friends and the local flying fauna, find a big discount on your Air Freight Cargo Hangar employees' efforts, and more!

 

Remember this is just a preview, and information may change. On top of that, Rockstar may reserve things for their own Newswire.

 

We understand that not every Event Week will be to everyone's liking, some will certainly be more exciting than others, but anyway...

Let's get started!

 


Get Sky High With Bonuses on Air-Related Activities

So you've been on the race track. Then things got too hectic and perhaps you thought that the seas would be more calm, perhaps you'd channel a bit of your pirate or Viking ancestors - except Captain Brendan Darcy had other plans. This week, it's time to grab that helicopter on your yacht and not look back except at the tops of cumulus clouds.

Go on a low oxygen trip (not recommended) by challenging your friends to a good old Air Race, which is paying out triple this week; partner with Junk Energy once again if you're short on money and you REALLY like their drink for some reason to jump off random areas of Los Santos and Blaine County (for SIX TIMES the rewards if you're a member of Los Santos' VIP club), or, if you think this is yet another sign of some sort of apocalyptic threat to come, get your military wits in check once again in Drop Zone.

 

  • 3x GTA$ and RP on the Drop Zone Adversary Mode
  • 3x GTA$ and RP on Junk Energy Skydives (Stacks up with GTA+ to 6x!)
  • 2x GTA$ and RP on Air Races (Stacks up with GTA+ to 4x!)

Discounts

Amongst the infinity of clouds, a bunch of discounts float this week. From helicopters and an airplane, to sports cars should you feel too afraid of oxygen deprivation, and even hangars if you want a place to store your futuristic or vintage looking aircraft, along with another opportunity for totally licit employment.

At the Gun Van, you can add to your repertoire of stealthy weapons this week. For those who are members of Los Santos' VIP club GTA+, you'll get your additional typical Gun Van discount, one that owes itself to the horizon - it's noted in a Rockstar-like colour.

Until 22nd May:

 

30% off

  • Hangar Properties, Upgrades and Modifications
  • Buckingham Swift Deluxe
  • Buckingham SuperVolito Carbon
  • Buckingham Conada
  • Buckingham Volatus
  • Jobuilt Velum 5-Seater

 

40% off

  • Pegassi Osiris
  • Declasse Draugur
  • Lampadati Komoda

 

 

50% off

  • Hangar Air Freight Cargo Source Staff Fee

 

Gun Van:

  • 40% off: Switchblade
  • 30% off: Heavy Sniper (available for everyone, discounted on GTA+)

Miscellaneous

Salvage Yard Vehicles & Robberies

Each week, Jamal and Yusuf Amir find some brand-new vehicles for you to source for your Chop Shop, and for Jamal to perhaps plaster all over Snapmatic and other social media. This week, check out the following propositions. One of them is claimable:

  • The Gangbanger Robbery: Übermacht Cypher (claimable!)
  • The Duggan Robbery: Pfister Neon
  • The Podium Robbery: Albany Brigham

 

The Diamond Casino & Resort Lucky Wheel

Last week, ship captains from all over visited the Diamond Casino & Resort - some of them with the most nefarious intentions. There's pretty much a permanent alert at the Diamond's Podium garage at this point, as staff already learned to believe Felipe's eternal warnings. The man knows what he's saying, he endures the madness of weird customers who keep punching him every time they visit the casino, and also those that keep robbing his house and his car for the Podium Robbery! This week, that's happening all over again, and folks will be wearing a pilot's outfit instead - oh dear.

This doesn't stop the Diamond staff from rolling in a new vehicle however, one that is an update of a classic of Los Santos and even Liberty City, one that is enough for you to stop suddenly and do an endo (well, if you're on a bike) right at the Lucky Wheel.

Approach that Wheel, perform any rituals or divinations, perhaps even pray to Horus (some may be running to that Drop Zone battle area ASAP by hearing this name but), the fitting deity for this week, and spin it for a chance to win a Karin Sultan Classic.

 

LS Car Meet Prize Ride

This week, it's expected that the LS Car Meet pretty much keeps its usual levels of activity... less some. It appears a few tuner-heads are more than airheads on the ground, they also may be airheads in the actual air! Coming from the smoke and mirrors of the ground race track to the towering tops of cumulonimbi is as smooth of a transition as drifting around the Test Track, and they're sure to keep coming back between one and the other regardless.

After a few weeks of agitation a while back, there's not much to report in the sanctuary of tuners by Cypress Flats, as even the Prize Ride is something more standard than some of the previous weeks!

This week, place Top 5 on the LS Car Meet Series four days in a row to win the Vapid Dominator ASP.

 

For testing and/or buying this week:

  • Ocelot Lynx (R)
  • Dinka Jester (R)
  • Pegassi Vacca (R)

 

Hao's metaphorical church this week has something smaller, but as many keep preaching, size doesn't matter and perhaps sometimes, size does help with prowess and speed. Approach his desk by the big HSW logo and buy, test or upgrade to the Grotti Brioso R/A HSW.

 

Premium Deluxe Motorsports

  • Enus Stafford (R)
  • Lampadati Pigalle (R)
  • Nagasaki Hot Rod Blazer (R)
  • Vapid Riata (R)
  • Dinka Double-T (R)

 

Luxury Autos

  • Bravado Dorado
  • Albany Cavalcade XL

Time Trials and Premium Races

This week across the state of San Andreas, find the following time trials and premium race.

  • Supers Classics Premium Race: Business Trip
  • Regular Time Trial: Vinewood Bowl
  • HSW Time Trial: Textile City to Stab City 

 

Weekly Challenge

Starting with the Chop Shop DLC, citizens all across the state now don't only have a few daily objectives to perform, but also a weekly challenge, for a free GTA$100K.

  • Achieve a Gold Medal in 5 Junk Energy Skydives

Looks like the Plate from the Gangbanger Robbery: Claimable Übermacht Cypher comes with the limited-edition "Los Santos Panic" vanity plate.

 

This is only the 3rd claimable vehicle, right?

Arrows to Athens

Meh week at best, but I guess I'll give the Junk Energy skydives another go, as I don't mind them and it's been some time since I've done them.

The bug where pc players can't save special license plates is still here. It's the third claimable vehicle. R* is patching money glitches not the plate bug on PC.

Yes.

 

Side note, I'm literally only doing these robberies for the exclusive license plates, which I still dodmt understand why they don't just unlock it as a actual customization option, like they did with the Sprunk and eCola plates.

 

At least this time around it's gangbanger robbery, which is very easy to complete.

Aren't LS Panics Ballas related? I wish we got this plate for a car that fits the theme better (American SUV or Sedan or American Classic/Muscle) or a Liberty City plate instead.

So on consoles you get to keep the plate? Does it stay if you move the car to a different garage?

There is no issues with the plates on consoles, you can mod the car and move it to where you want, I don't know if you loose the plates for good if you change them though, so better don't do this.

When you select a bog standard plate a message pop up saying are you sure you want to change plate? If yes it will go to a black screen and you won't see the new plate option in the list of plates anymore

Such a beautiful car.  If any of you are interested in a sporty four door saloon car, this is worth considering.

first Junk Energy I try and I get this

 

did it twice with the same result. Done for the night

 

EDIT: okay the trick for this one is aim for the center. You will still bounce back but stay within the circle.
