Bonuses and promotions for the week of 18 to 24 August 2022

The weekly content of The Criminal Enterprises DLC continues and today adds 3 new features to GTA Online. The first is a new car, the Imponte Ruiner ZZ-8, and the others are two random events in freemode. In addition, like every week, a new week of bonuses and promotions is available, including triple wins in motorcycle contracts and reductions on some vehicles.

This week’s news in GTA Online

The brand new Imponte Ruiner ZZ-8 is now available for purchase in GTA Online and two new random events are available.

New random events

The first event is the crash of a smuggler plane, it appears as a blue dot on the map, at the start of the event the plane is in trouble and black smoke follows in its wake, they follow each other to the crash site to retrieve a briefcase of money.

The second event is the contraband cache, it’s a yellow smoke or you need to interact with the flare with the right arrow to start this event. You then have to find different yellow smokes one after the other until you reach the last one, or you have to interact with a box to complete the random event and win GTA$. Note that only the first smoke appears on the map, the subsequent ones must be found visually by looking around, use an aircraft for greater simplicity.

Both of these random events are available in any session type, including invited sessions, and appear randomly on the GTA Online Freemode map as a blue dot.
