Continuing their string of double GTA$ and RP events in GTA Online, Rockstar has recently announced that in between the 27th of July and 2nd of August, players completing the set-up missions and the finale of the Series A Funding heist will receive, surprise surprise, double GTA$ and RP.
These event are an on-going campaign to entice players to turn to honorable means of acquiring in-game currency and RP, as opposed to hacks or mods. Rockstar hopes that by doubling the reward on select activities, players would rather actually play the bloody game rather than cheat and risk a ban. Why anyone would resort to underhanded idiocy such as attempting cheats and hacks in a multiplayer game (bending the rules in singleplayer is fine, especially when we’re talking about Rockstar’s cheats) is beyond logic, but we’re trying to shut down these bastards, not understand them.
Rockstar has also upped the bonus rewards on the challenges associated with the heist, which are optional objectives that net players additional gains and bragging rights. Completing the following challenges will stuff your wallets twice as much as they did before.
- Complete in under 6:30
- Kill 75 enemies
- Nobody gets wasted
Once again like last time around, if your character hasn’t hit the level requirement for the heist, which is 12, Rockstar is doubling the RP reward on a number of regular activities you can complete in the over-world. The following jobs will get you where you need to be twice as fast.
- Gang Attacks
- Mission: Out of Harmony
- Missions: Deliver a Package Bonus
- Deathmatch: All Kills
- Deathmatch: 1st, 2nd and 3rd Place finishes
- Deathmatch: 3, 6 and 10 Kills
- Deathmatch: Power Player, Kill When Close to Death
- Vehicle Deathmatch: Kill Power Player
- Survival: Wave Reached
- Capture: RP Rewards for Collecting Mission Package
And to finish things up, over the course of the event, Rockstar will once again be cycling through limited discounts on gear, starting off by slashing the price of the Meth Lab Suit by 50%.
Will you guys cash in on this opportunity?
