Hearing that? Christmas bells are ringing, carolers are singing, and a Grinch parody with an awful name is attacking GTA Online users. He is one of several holiday goodies that are currently available on the streets of Los Santos, which also feature snowmen that must be destroyed, rooftop shootouts, and, strangely enough, superpowered animals being pursued by serial killers.
Christmas does seem like a wonderful time of year to drop in, and Alice O lists the seasonal events in GTA Online as some of her favorites. There are several ways to make additional money while everything is coated in snow and decorated with decorations.
While you’re walking the streets, the Gooch might attack you. If you can repel him, you’ll get some money and a mask to wear. By focusing on sleighbell noises, you can track down snowmen, whom you can kill all 25 of to get $125,000 and a Snowman Outfit. You can participate in a gunfight on the Weazel Plaza rooftop that is modeled by the movie Die Hard to receive a new gun, a Christmas skin for a different gun, and $25,000 by doing so.
The (returning) Monsters vs. Slashers event has me the most confused since three-person teams of invisibly strong beasts have to jump through checkpoints before being eliminated by three-person teams of Slashers with rocket launchers and thermal vision. Somehow, it has a holiday vibe.
The holiday fun comes to an end on December 28. More information is available on Rockstar’s event page.
GTA 5 is on sale for £13/$22/€22 on Steam and the Epic Games Store, which includes access to GTA Online.
Alice B believed she had the final word on RPS before Christmas, but she was mistaken since I was still hiding in the treehouse’s shadowy “American news hours” area. Right now, Gooch has the final say on RPS. Sorry.
