This week GTA Online introduces the Gun Van, a roving weapons, ammo, and armor shop run out the back of a Vapid Speedo that can be spotted moving through the streets of Los Santos.

An alternative to brick-and-mortar Ammu-Nation locations, this grey market supplier features a weekly rotating inventory of arms and accessories, including the latest weapons such as the new Railgun and a selection at discounted rates usually reserved for higher Ranks.

Plus, players looking for a challenge can take on the all-new Hard Mode difficulty setting for First Dose Missions of Los Santos Drug Wars – now offering 1.5X the usual GTA$ and RP through February 8, with additional rewards as detailed below.


If there’s one thing people talk about when it comes to living in Los Santos, it’s the necessity for access to high-grade weaponry. Enter the Gun Van, a Vapid Speedo filled with a weekly rotating inventory of top-of-the-line weapons, ammunition, and armor.

Unlike its more regulated competitor, Ammu-Nation, all items in the Gun Van are sold at discounted rates and without the formality of Rank requirements. Due to this gray-market status, the Speedo must move regularly to avoid attracting too much attention.

The elusive Railgun is now available in GTA Online. Seek out the Gun Van to procure this powerful new weapon, and benefit from discounts on an array of armaments, including 45% off the Compact EMP Launcher. See below for this week’s inventory:
Railgun | Combat Shotgun | Assault Shotgun | SMG | Assault Rifle | Heavy Sniper | Compact EMP Launcher | RPG | Knife | Baseball Bat | Molotovs | Proximity Mines | Grenades

GTA+ Members can enjoy even steeper discounts across many of the above items — including an exclusive 50% discount on the Combat Shotgun — plus acquire exclusive weapon tints and finishes.

Hard Mode Event: The First Dose

Helping Dax and the Fooliganz regain their foothold in the criminal ecosystem of Los Santos is no small feat. That’s why First Dose missions are paying out an extra 50% GTA$ and RP this week, and why completing these same missions on the newly available Hard difficulty setting is doling out rare and hard-earned items for your collection.

The First Dose Hard Mode Event runs through February 8, so you’ll have plenty of time to get your hands on the following rewards — all delivered before February 17:

  • Green Fooliganz MTL Brickade 6×6 livery: Complete any First Dose mission on Hard difficulty
  • Safari Ranger Överflöd Entity MT livery: Complete 3 different First Dose missions on Hard difficulty
  • Speed Demon Übermacht Cypher livery: Complete any First Dose mission on Hard difficulty in less than 10 minutes
  • Kisama Drifter Annis 300R livery: Complete any First Dose mission on Hard difficulty without dying

gokart Docks race by 0Xenox0

The Merryweather docks and the Los Santos Naval Port are usually all business and industrial run-off, but this race imagines what would happen if you let loose a fleet of Go-Karts to jostle for position between the cranes and storage crates. Madness is sure to ensue.


A well-engineered Team Deathmatch utilizing the latest Creator tools and balanced weaponry to cause chaos, with boosted player movement speed and just two weapons: the Precision Rifle and Automatic Shotgun. Regular kills are worth one point, while headshots are worth three.

Rapid Vapid Rally by Spitfire2205

In this Stunt Race, you’re free to pick your poison — Trophy Truck or Desert Raid — and see how they handle muddy, uphill, offroad sections as well as water hazards.

{ALEE} Maze Bank Melee by aleeenur

This Team Deathmatch features an elaborately constructed map built atop the barely recognizable spire of the Maze Bank building. Creator aleeenur of the Artemis Syndicate did an amazing job transforming a familiar landmark into something new altogether.

River-Ratfink by defryc

This short-but-sweet Stunt Race maximizes carnage and creativity by setting a pack of racecars adrift down the white-water rapids and waterfalls of the Tongva Valley. Rainy weather conditions will make this an extra slippery affair.

Stunt – Blazer Aqua by pizzaaman9780

This Stunt Race maximizes the amphibious potential of the Blazer Aqua on a track that moves from land to sea and back interchangeably. Winning will require aptitude on both sides of the shore.

= Football Deathrun = by S-PxRxE

This inspired Last Team Standing tasks one team with legging it across a soccer field, using balls as cover, to reach the goal and a supply of weapons and vehicles beneath it. Meanwhile, a team of snipers can thwart their opponents by shooting the balls at an angle, spinning them away, and leaving runners vulnerable.

Only on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S

Premium Test Ride: Grotti Brioso R/A

The engineers at Hao’s Special Works refuse to settle for factory stock. This week’s Premium Test Vehicle, a Grotti Brioso R/A (Compact) with extra horsepower shoehorned under its stout bonnet, is a showcase of what aftermarket accessories can do for a sensible compact.

This Week’s HSW Time Trial

Once you’ve visited Hao at HSW, take your freshly upgraded ride for a test drive between Sandy Shores and La Puerta in this week’s HSW Time Trial.

Premium Deluxe Motorsport Showroom

Pay Simeon Yetarian a visit to get a closer look at this week’s fleet, which includes the Vapid Dominator ASP (Muscle, 30% off), Grotti Furia (Super), Declasse Drift Tampa (Sport)Enus Windsor (Coupe), and Declasse Hotring Sabre (Sport) in all their glory. Just don’t ask too many questions about their provenance — Simeon’s notoriously cagey about those details.

Luxury Auto Showroom

Visit the Luxury Autos showroom window and fog it up with bated breath while you gawk at this week’s offerings: the Dinka RT3000 (Sport, 30% off) and Truffade Nero (Super), both symbols of success and excess in their own respective lanes.

Try Out the Annis ZR350, Obey 10F, and Pfister Comet S2

If you find yourself wandering the LS Car Meet, stop by the Test Track to give this week’s selection of vehicles a spin: the Annis ZR350 (Sport), Obey 10F (Sport), and Pfister Comet S2 (Sport) are available, free of charge. Put them to the test, whether that’s a head-to-head Scramble, a race against the clock in a Time Trial, or a breezy, casual freestyle session between the painted lanes and columns.


Placing Top 3 in the LS Car Meet Series for five days in a row will be no small task, and you’ll be rewarded for rising to the occasion with the keys to a Vapid Caracara 4×4 (Off-Road), the pick-up truck with enough muscle under the hood to shoulder most other street-legal vehicles right off the road.


On The Diamond Casino Podium: Dinka Jester RR

The Diamond Casino & Resort is responsible for making as many fortunes as it’s broken, but the Lucky Wheel is a win-win-win situation — with prizes ranging from GTA$ and RP all the way to a grand prize podium vehicle. This week’s is none other than the Dinka Jester RR (Sport), a customizable coupe built to outrun the impending apocalypse.
