GTA Online

GTAOnline Event Week January 12th – 18th

The Festive Surprise has finally gone in GTAOnline as snow melts away and the Christmas-themed content expires, until the end of this year when it’ll return, of course. This week however brings a new dose of benefits and discounts, including the introduction to the new Gun Van, now available in-game.


HSW: Sandy Shores

An HSW time trial from Sandy Shores to the big city is the American dream; sure, there’s a chance you’ll make it big, but even if you crash and burn you’ll make the front page. Time trial for HSW vehicles.


Time Trial: Calafia Way

Like every post-hipster tourist with a camera phone, take a tour of crushed dreams in the Alamo Sea and think about what filter best captures the sadness. Time trial for the Snapmatic generation. 


RC Bandito Time Trial: Construction Site II

Sure, if this is your day job, the unsecured scaffolding and lack of guardrails are hazards. But you’re driving an RC car at high speed. And that males them features…



As part of the Los Santos Drug Wars Update which released at the end of 2022, the second-part of the content is due to be drip-fed across the next several event weeks, including this week which introduces the all-new Gun Van which is now live in GTAOnline.

The Gun Van will spawn at a random location each day and the contents inside will be different each time. We have put the location of today’s gun van below, which is at Palmer-Taylor Power Station (East of Vinewood), but to find it going forward simply just look for the Gun Van icon on your map or use the Interaction Menu to set a waypoint to it.

Also available inside the Gun Van is the highly-awaited Railgun, which costs GTA$525,600. You can upgrade existing weapons or ones which you purchase, buy ammo and armour or simply have a browse. Either way, the Gun Van is a lot cheaper than heading to your local Ammunation stores… just don’t tell the cops.

  • 2x GTA$ and RP on new Community Series Missions
  • 1.5x GTA$ and RP on First Dose Missions (GTA+ Only)
