GTA Online Update News (Nov. 16, 2023)

Rockstar Games is happy to announce updated content in GTA Online.

Prevent Global Calamity in GTA Online, Take Down a Collective GTA$100B, and Earn Prizes by Participating in the Doomsday Scenario Community Challenge

Plus, Simeon’s Employee of the Month Challenge Results, New Community Series Paying Out Triple Rewards, and More

GTA Online Update News (Nov. 16, 2023)

The stakes of our community-wide challenge series continue to climb to new, dizzying heights. In addition to the fast twitch-enhancing effects of the ongoing Sprunk & eCola challenge, the GTA Online community must now unite against the threat of total annihilation. Conquer Act III of The Doomsday Heist — The Doomsday Scenario — for a cumulative take of over GTA$100,000,000,000 by November 22. Join forces with Lester Crest, tech mogul Avon Hertz, and his neurotic, hyperintelligent AI, Cliffford, to thwart this global catastrophe and reap Double GTA$ and RP on The Doomsday Scenario Finale, as well as in all Prep Missions.

Should the community succeed in hitting the GTA$100B goal this week, all players will unlock a new livery for the legendary Pegassi Zentorno (Super, 50% off), which will be delivered as part of the upcoming winter update to GTA Online.

Also this week: seasonal blooms are appearing in backyards and the foothills of the Tataviam Mountains. Munching on psychoactive Peyote Plants will give you the kind of out-of-body experience the city’s elite often pay top dollar for.

Sprunk & eCola Update

There’s only one way to avoid a caffeine crash: keep drinking. As the community-wide effort to consume Sprunk and eCola enters its second week, we’re pleased to report that the community is over halfway to the goal of drinking 100,000,000 Sprunk and eCola cans by November 29. If players continue to recruit their friends to the cause and crush copious cans of soda, everyone will earn the custom Sprunk and eCola vanity license plates, the Sprunk x eCola branded livery for the Mammoth F-160 Raiju (25% off this week), and a Sprunk x eCola Bodysuit, as part of this winter’s GTA Online update.

Simeon’s Employee of the Month Challenge: Mission Passed

Last week, Simeon asked for a grand total of GTA$15,000,000,000 worth of Export Requests to be fulfilled by taking in-demand vehicles down to the docks. He’s run the numbers and paid out delivery fees on a whopping GTA$19,053,404,749 worth of rides — unlocking a special livery for the upcoming Grotti Turismo Omaggio super car, which will be available for all players with this December’s GTA Online update.

Community Series

A new batch of Community Series Jobs has just landed at the corona in Legion Square, running the gamut from frenetic go-kart tracks, to bicycle thievery, to floating battle arenas. Head to the icon on your map or use the Quick Join menu on your iFruit to take part in the Community Series Jobs below — paying out a handsome 3X GTA$ and RP, all week long.


A team in Pantos braves a gauntlet of jumps, facing a team of sniper-wielding defenders at the other end of this action-packed Last Team Standing.

Outdoor Go-Karts by ABIDE51

Careen around this intricate Stunt Race at LSIA Airport behind the wheel of a go-kart, reaching top speed on the straights and using jumps to bypass the competition.

Mystery box #1 by YOUROBOUROS96

This wild-card mode puts a new spin on the King of the Hill genre by making the aforementioned hill a BMX. With all players starting in Pantos, holding the bike becomes a chaotic challenge when everyone else is driving Pantos at you head-on. Remember to wear a helmet.

Olimpo by XxSERUSxX

This tactical Team Deathmatch is set inside a colosseum in the sky. Expect plenty of options to cover behind and avoid falling to your doom by watching out for holes in the crumbling stone below.

Training camp by VoltycQc

This Deathmatch inside Fort Zancudo is designed for short and mid-range gunfights. There are plenty of sandbags to use for cover but watch your head: shots to the body do less damage in this mode so your enemies will be aiming above the shoulders if they know what’s good for them.

FU – Los Santos GP by Cittiverse

This Open Wheel Race requires masterful use of K.E.R.S to accelerate and maintain speed out of the turns, before opening up for high-speed passes across the flat surfaces surrounding LSIA.

Saint Peak by KOTAJPN

This sprawling Stunt Race uses props to create a clever, castle-like track fit with underpasses and slopes to keep things interesting.
