Starting today Friday, July 10th and lasting through Sunday, July 12th, spoil yourself with an assortment of in-game bonuses, including a Double GTA$ Racing Event Playlist, numerous opportunities to earn Double RP, three chances to achieve eternal notoriety and tremendous spoils in sweepstakes and contests, plus a whole lot more...
DOUBLE GTA$ IN ALL RACES WITH EXTRA BONUSES
To help keep your newly acquired designer Dual Driving Loafers planted firmly on the gas pedal this weekend, get Double GTA$ in all Races. Also, all Race bonuses - Slipstreams, Overtakes, entering 1st place, maintaining 1st place for a whole lap, running a clean lap, making the fastest lap or establishing your personal best lap - will pay out Double RP throughout the weekend.
Rockstar has also assembled a special Event Playlist filled with Rockstar Created and Rockstar Verified Races chosen specifically to test drive the brand new vehicles featured in the Ill-Gotten Gains Update: Part Two. The Great Adventurer is perfect for those looking to take the Progen T20 for a spin, and you can certainly flex your muscle in Grass Route and Casino Royale. (On Xbox 360 and PS3 The Life Invader Circuit replaces Casino Royale). To round things out, we finish with the fan-favorite Power Trip, which makes for a perfect opportunity to rev up your Dinka Vindicator. To roll directly into these, just hit the Event button during the GTAV loading screen.
Finally, if you think you got your Progen T20 game locked tight already (or you've been beaten 10 times in a row by the same player, and want to make the next defeat hurt a little less) take advantage of a complimentary $1,000 betting stake in Races this weekend, free to place on whomever you choose.
DOUBLE RP DEATHMATCHES, GOLF & TENNIS
Come to grips with the dead-shot Marksman Pistol or try on new Knuckle Duster melee weapons this weekend in Double RP Deathmatches. Since the Knuckle Dusters will already have you working on your forehand game, head over to the courts at the Richman Hotel and serve yourself up some Double RP in Tennis - or hit the lush fairways at the Los Santos Golf Club instead for Double RP while you try to get that elusive hole-in-one on the 6th.
EXCLUSIVE T-SHIRTS FOR COMPLETING DAILY OBJECTIVES
In addition to RP and GTA$ Bonuses for Racing, industrious players will be rewarded this weekend with a different exclusive T-shirt each day when they complete their three Daily Objectives. To find out what these are each day, head into GTA Online and keep an eye out for the notification that pops up on screen. From there, head to your Interaction Menu and select the Daily Objectives option.
Complete Daily Objectives this weekend to unlock the Gold Dis T-shirt (Friday), Le Biatch T-shirt (Saturday) and NS Print T-shirt (Sunday).
Daily Objectives this weekend have been cherry picked so that you can take advantage of everything the Ill-Gotten Gains Update: Part Two has to offer (and earn your GTA$25,000 daily completion bonus). Objectives are randomized, but keep an eye out for opportunities to participate in a Sea Race in the new Lampadati Toro, or hit some Stunt Jumps using the KERS speed injection feature on the Dinka Vindicator.
GRATIS GOLD RESPRAYS & PEGASUS DELIVERIES
All this weekend, Gold Metal resprays from Los Santos Customs will be absolutely free on everything, including the rough and ready Coil Brawler and the sleek Invetero Coquette BlackFin. Also, all Pegasus orders for luxury vehicle services are on the house. And don't forget about the Legendary Motorsport one-time 25% rebate for qualifying purchases that's happening through next week July 15.

Part 2 of The Ill-Gotten Gains Update for GTA Online delivers desirable new vehicles, unforgiving new weapons and clothes to make you stand out in a crowd. For the unconventional, the Coil Brawler is a luxury sports-styled off-roader with raised suspension and a 400 horsepower engine that will muscle its way over any terrain. If top speed is what matters most, the Progen T20 is among the fastest cars to ever arrive in Los Santos, and the Vapid Chino brings some old school sedan brawn to your vehicle collection, while the Dinka Vindicator motorcycle adds agility and speed, featuring a kinetic energy recovery system (KERS) that stores energy from braking and delivers a burst of speed on activation.
For a level of refinement that only dirty money can buy, the Lampadati Toro screams sophistication – a speedboat crafted with the finest timber from protected rainforests, six-inch lacquer finishing and twin v12 engines. Meanwhile, a range of exotic weaponry hits Ammu-Nation with the wood-finished Marksman Pistol, a single-shot weapon with more stopping power than a pump action shotgun or the slightly more personal, solid gold Knuckle Dusters.
For those who prefer to wear their status as conspicuous consumers, the iFruit Snap Watch adds a hint of tech savvy to your wrist, or opt for a more classically opulent timepiece with the Medici Radial or Covgari Universe – all available at retailers across Los Santos alongside a massive selection of new apparel and jewelry for men and women.
In other news, The Ill-Gotten Gains Update Part 2 brings the release of the new radio station, The Lab on all four console versions of GTAV. Hosted by Dr. No and the Chemical Bro., The Lab features new tracks created by The Alchemist and Oh No and inspired by their work on the original score for GTAV, with guest appearances from Killer Mike, Little Dragon, Earl Sweatshirt, Phantogram, Freddie Gibbs and more.
To help get you into one of their new vehicles, the esteemed salesmen at Legendary Motorsport are offering a one-time 25% REBATE on your next qualifying purchase this week (July 8th – 15th). All you need to do to qualify for this special limited-time offer is have your email address registered and verified with the Rockstar Games Social Club, be a member of the Rockstar Games Mailing List and join a Crew. The cash from the Legendary Motorsport rebate will be deposited in your in-game Maze Bank account by Sunday, July 19th. To fulfill these requirements, login to your Social Club profile. If your profile already meet these three requirements, just visit Legendary Motorsport in-game and purchase your new ride.
And as always, this new Title Update (1.28) additionally includes many other new enhancements, improvements and fixes for known issues. Amongst these items by popular demand will be the ability for creators to make custom Jobs at the Los Santos International Airport and the Fort Zancudo Military Base for the first time. Rockstar can’t wait to see what the Creator community cooks up in those previously off-limits areas. They've received lots of other fantastic feedback to the official GTA Online feedback inbox from the Creator community about features they’d like to see. One such update that they are currently working on for a next update is a new feature to enable creators to properly stack props, adding proper support for that highly-requested feature powering super fun mega-ramps, loops and parkour courses – please stay tuned for more information on that. Rockstar encourages all players to please continue sending your wishlists and suggestions to GTAOnline@rockstargames.com as it is of invaluable help in informing positive fixes, tweaks and other updates to the game.
