GTA Online Weekly Update July 4, 2024

Time to really live up the 'Murica lifestyle by grabbing Independence Day themed hats, and enjoying 50% off all Independence Day vehicles this week only.

GTA Online Weekly Update July 4, 2024

Happy Fourth of July! This week’s GTA Online Weekly Update loudly celebrates America’s Independence Day, introducing a bunch of free ‘Murica style hats alongside a swathe of discounts on vehicles and items. Best of all, this week’s podium vehicle can be claimed for free so long as you snap it up as part of The Podium Robbery Salvage Yard mission.

Don’t worry if you haven’t unlocked the Salvage Yard yet because you’re short a few GTA$. Rockstar have a host of bonuses this week across Mobile Operations missions, with a tasty 100,000 GTA$ bonus to go with it.
