This week in GTA Online, both Los Santos and Blaine County are celebrating Independence Day. Players are invited to take advantage of the bonuses and discounts offered for patriotic gear.

Let's start with the 3X GTA$ offered for Land Races. Racers able to complete all Independence Day Special Land Races get a GTA$200K bonus. For those of you who may have forgotten, these are:

  • Across the Wilderness
  • Mud, Sweat, and Gears
  • Swamp Monster
  • Tour the Lake

To launch these Races, just head to the Featured Series icon on the map or use the Quick Join function on the iFruit.

Business Battle Bonuses and Rewards

Business Battles is one of the best ways to find out who wants to succeed the most. Taking part in Business Battles this week pays out thrice the usual GTA$ and RP.

Along the way, players can retrieve crates that might contain:

  • Pisswasser Beer Hat
  • Benedict Beer Hat
  • Patriot Beer Hat
  • Supa Wet Beer Hat
  • Statue of Happiness T-Shirt

After all, nothing shows patriotism more than a hat that can put alcohol into an awaiting gullet.

More Bonuses

These modes are making a return to the game: Overtime Rumble, Overtime Shootout, Inch by Inch, and Running Back (Remix).

In Running Back (Remix), two teams of Tezeracts fight to protect or destroy the tiny hatchback that's on a mission. Everybody who joins gets 3X GTA$ and RP.

Lester Contact Missions, meanwhile, have players earn 2X Rewards. For those new to the game, Lester Crest is one of the most successful career criminals in Southern San Andreas. Help him out to get those extra rewards.

Those who want to show off their patriotism this week can get their hands on the Western Sovereign and USA Chute Bag. The two are available for free. Players can also enjoy 50% off on a wide range of Independence Day-themed items that include:

  • Vapid Liberator
