GTA$ and RP Bonuses

This week, the Nightlife Leak Finale and Specialist+ contracts will reward double RP and GTA$ upon completion. Both of which require an Agency, so you’ll need to get started with The Contract DLC if you haven’t already.

To recap, here are this week’s bonus modes in GTA Online.

  • Nightlife Leak Finale: 2X GTA$ and RP
  • Specialist+ Contracts: 2X GTA$ and RP

PlayStation Plus subscribers will also get their monthly GTA$1,000,000 as well, so don’t forget to claim that if you’re on PS4/PS5.

That’s all you need to know about this week’s GTA Online update. It’s been a busy time for GTA Online players with The Contract DLC dropping last month, and there’s still plenty to catch up on. Don’t forget to buy the right upgrades for your Agency or take on some Security Contracts if you’re short on cash.

Grand Theft Auto Online is available now on PC, PS4, and Xbox One.
