GTA Online weekly update kicks off two big community events

The GTA Online weekly update for November 9 is here, and Rockstar kicks off two big community events as we await the first GTA 6 trailer.

The GTA Online weekly update for November 9-15 is here, and Rockstar Games has two big community events starting this week in its GTA 5 multiplayer mode. With the whole world awaiting our first official look at GTA 6 in December, many of you may be eager to jump back into Rockstar’s online world to get back in the swing of all things Grand Theft Auto, and it’s a great week to do so with this pair of community challenges and some huge discounts.

The GTA Online update for the week of November 9 kicks off two new challenges – the return of Sprunk and eCola, albeit in a different form from last year’s drinks war, and Simeon’s Employee of the Month challenge. If you’re jumping into the multiplayer game in light of the news of the first GTA 6 trailer, we’ve got everything you need to know about what’s going on in GTA 5 this week ahead of Rockstar’s official update, so read on for all the details.

The first challenge is ‘Sprunk and eCola,’ which celebrates the leading drinks brands of the Grand Theft Auto universe. Rather than competing like last year, the pair have teamed up to challenge players to drink a collective 100 million cans of the soft drinks. Should the community manage to do so before Wednesday November 29, everyone will unlock new themed license plates, a bodysuit, and livery for the Mammoth F-160 Raiju as a reward.

Simeon’s Employee of the Month challenge runs just this week, and tasks players with earning a collective $15 billion in GTA Online cash from Simeon’s vehicle export service by Wednesday November 15. Succeed and everyone will get access to a special livery for a new, unannounced vehicle. The good news is that there’s also triple payout and reputation rewards from the export requests this week, which should help us to hit that lofty goal.

The GTA Online podium car this week is the Ocelot Penetrator. Get lucky enough spinning the Diamond Casino’s prize wheel and you’ll save the $880,000 asking price for this spin on the real-life Jaguar XJ220 supercar. The GTA Online prize ride is the Dewbauchee Rapid GT Classic; typically priced at $885,000, this Rockstar take on the iconic Aston Martin V8 is yours for the simple task of placing top six in an LS Car Meet race for two days in a row.

Ever fancied being a Taxi driver? This week you’ll earn a whopping five times the usual payout for doing so, making it a great time to pick up some fares. There’s also half price on a huge number of cars, along with both Executive Offices and Vehicle Warehouses, so it’s a fantastic week to spend some of that hard-earned cash. You’ll find the full range of details down below.
