Other Things You Could Buy With The $2.875 Million It Costs To Get The Newest GTA Online Car

Grand Theft Auto Online’s newest car was added this week and it is the most expensive standard supercar in the game. (Technically the Scramjet and Vigilante are more expensive, but those are weird special vehicles.) According to some players, the Kriger, which costs $2.875 million is fast and fun to drive. But is it really worth that much money? Maybe. However, here are some other things you could buy instead in GTA Online with that much cash.

19 Voltics (The cheapest supercar in GTA Online.)

Having multiple electric cars is probably useful in some parts of the world where charging stations aren’t as common. Just have a few of them parked around your area and when you start running low on juice, just head over to your closest stashed and charged Voltic.

958 Rebel pickup trucks (The cheapest car in GTA Online.)

Look, you might wonder why you need 958 crappy trucks and I have a great reason. You could start doing monster truck shows at your local home or park. Sure some folks wouldn’t like that, but whatever. You got nearly 1000 trucks to crush.

9,583 Broken Bottles (A broken bottle that players can use as a weapon.)

I can’t really think of a good reason to have this many broken bottles. Maybe you could recycle them? That could be a good way to kill some time. I guess? Let’s move on.

5 Widowmakers (A big laser cannon and one of the most expensive weapons.)

One giant laser cannon is useful and worth having. But five of them is even better. Have bodyguards that follow you around? Give them each one of these and watch people leave you alone, forever. Have a few kids? What’s a better gift than a giant laser cannon? At least it’s better than a dozen broken bottles.

35 Low-End Apartments (The cheapest place to live in GTA Online cost $80k.)

Become a beloved member of the community by sharing these with folks who need a place to live until they get a new job. Or a more selfish way to use these apartments is live at one for a few weeks and once it gets dirty, just head to the next place.

2 Secret Military Bunkers (Starting price for a basic bunker is $1.165 million.)

It is WILD that in the world of GTA Online you can buy not one, but two secret military bunkers, complete with staff and lots of storage, for less than one nice supercar. GTA Online’s economy is screwed up.

410,714 packs of Redwood cigarettes (A pack of smokes costs $7.)

Buy like half as many, rent out a small shop and start selling these for $9. And look at that, you are making money. In fact, pretty soon you will be rich and famous enough to appear on that Shark Tank show. The last episode I saw had some dude on who wanted to pitch a business involving 9,000 broken bottles. They all passed.


Of course, you could just buy the new expensive car. According to GTA Online automotive expert Broughy, the new Krieger is a solid car with good handling and decent speed. You can easily win some races in this new supercar.

But if you instead wanted to own a bunch of crappy pickup trucks and cigarettes, skip the fancy new car and start buying truckloads of both.

There Are Now 100 Hidden Action Figures To Find And Collect In GTA Online

The world of Grand Theft Auto Online is filled with crime, action, and destruction. Often players are given jobs that involve robbing banks, assassinating enemies, stealing cars or blowing up drug dens. But in the latest GTA Online update, players have a decidedly more mundane task: Collect 100 action figures for a toy collector.

To start this quest, simply log into the GTA Online and wait for a text from a man who owns a local comic book store. Someone stole all his action figures and he needs you to collect them and bring them all back. If you are wondering how a comic store owner got hold of the phone number of a huge criminal, he’s a friend of Lester, who provides jobs for players. Los Santos really is a small world after all.

While the toys were just added earlier this week, dedicated players have already found all 100 figures and discovered what rewards you earn for spending a few hours searching the map.

For each figure you find, you’ll earn $1000 and 1000 RP points. After you find all of them, you will earn another $50k and a new outfit.

The new outfit is based on the in-universe superhero, Impotent Rage. The new outfit also comes with a new hair cut. Wearing both of these new cosmetics lets players pull off a solid Impotent Rage cosplay. Now, does anyone actually want to play GTA Online while looking like Impotent Rage? Maybe a few? Some fans are having fun with the new outfit.

Personally, I would have been happier with more money or suit made out of the 100 action figures.

If you want to go searching for action figures in GTA Online, you can use various maps and videos that players have put together showing where to find each collectible and the most efficient order to collect them in. Get your car or helicopter or jetpack ready and go collect some toys.

Getting Drunk In GTA Online’s Casino Unlocks A New Secret Mission

The recently added casino in Grand Theft Auto Online has become a popular spot for players and has led to GTA Online reaching its highest number of active players since launch. But while the slot machines and card games are a big draw, there is a secret hidden in the casino for those willing to get really drunk, possibly multiple times.

The secret mission involves the player waking up after getting really drunk. An ambulance and some paramedics are near them, presumably due to their hard night of drinking. The player is then contacted by the casino manager and scolded for taking one of the casino’s delivery trucks out for a joyride. The manager will forgive the player for being a drunk asshole if they return the truck.

To find this secret mission, players first need to own a penthouse in GTA Online’s Diamond Casino & Resort. You need the penthouse to access the story missions that were added in the casino update. Host and play the first mission, Loose Cheng, to unlock casino work missions. These are short, randomly given missions that the player can request using their phone. The secret mission is hidden and is activated by getting drunk, not calling, but you will need these casino work missions unlocked to access it.

Head over to your private penthouse bar or the casino’s public bar and start drinking. Specifically, you need to drink shots of Macbeth Whisky. Each time you drink a shot of this powerful alcohol, your character will get very drunk, eventually blacking out and waking up in a different spot. Some players have found themselves transported outside the casino, to their own penthouse and to the casino’s bathrooms. To get the secret, you just have to keep drinking shots, over and over, until you get lucky enough to wake up in the mission.

Some players have been able to unlock the new secret after 50 drinks or less. Others have spent hours drinking Macbeth shots and still haven’t unlocked the mission. One player claims to have had 167 shots and still not unlocked the secret mission.

If this sounds familiar, that’s because this particular whisky shot was used in a different secret in GTA Online last year. In the nightclub update, players could drink this same alcohol and randomly wake up in different spots in the city. If you were lucky, or persistent, you could eventually wake up with a new exclusive shirt.

Unlike that secret and its exclusive piece of clothing, the reward for the hidden casino mission isn’t very impressive. It pays out around the same amount of similar casino jobs. However, there is some humorous dialogue that can be triggered while doing this secret mission, with Ms. Baker, the casino manager, claiming she’s never met someone who can be so offensive without saying a word, a reference to the fact your character in GTA Online never speaks.

Be careful when trying to get this secret mission. Some players have reported weird issues occurring when they wake up in their penthouse, like their entire living space getting sucked into a void and the world despawning randomly around them. The dangers of alcohol.

Finally, You Can Purchase The “Yellow Dog With Cone” Statue In GTA Online

Grand Theft Auto Online players waited years for the casino to open and the latest large update finally did just that. Players have been excited. But not all was well. You see, there was still something missing. But finally, our nightmare is over. After first being teased on the official website for the newly open Diamond Casino, The Yellow Dog With Cone statue is finally available to purchase in the casino’s store.

When Rockstar first started teasing and talking about the casino update they also launched a website alongside the news. This site showcased many different features of the casino, including various table games, penthouse features and more. But one item that was also teased was that of an art piece named Yellow Dog With Cone.

But when the update was released last week, some fans discovered that there was no statue available in the game. This became a meme on the various GTA subreddits and forums, even spawning the creation of a subreddit dedicated to only the yellow dog and their cone. It seemed clear that players wanted their doggo.

“Where is my Injured Yellow Dog!?!? Lol” Asked one Reddit user, after finding no dog statue. I assume the “LOL” at the end is just the way that user copes with sadness. Some folks smile through the pain.

Multiple posts popped up on Reddit and Twitter asking where the damn dog was and why the world was so awful. The reason the dog wasn’t in the game was that, as explained on the official website for the casino update, the store updates each week with new items. So the wait began. Players hoped that soon the Yellow Dog With Cone would grace their GTA Online penthouses.

“God I hope yellow dog with cone is added tomorrow,” tweeted one player as they waited for news of the updated store.

Finally, after what felt like years of waiting, fans were rewarded when it was discovered that the casino store had been updated for the new week and the Yellow Dog With Cone was one of the items available to buy.

“YELLOW DOG WITH CONE HAS ARRIVED” was the title of one of the various posts that appeared on Reddit after the dog statue was added to the game. As you might expect, players were happy and relieved to finally get the big yellow pup in their hands. “God has truly chosen us,” exclaimed one fan on Reddit.

Yellow Dog With Cone costs 41500 chips to purchase, but that seems like a small price to pay for something so wonderful and beloved. Players also found other similar statues, but differently colored dogs. As far as I can tell, the GTA community has no feelings towards these other dogs.

After being added to the game, fans began snapping photos of their new purchases. One fan even took the dog out to the beach for a nice vacation.

For those who need the Yellow Dog With Cone in their penthouse, act fast. Once the store changes again, we have no idea when or if our neon-colored pup will return. Don’t let this opportunity slip through your fingers.

Don’t disappoint Yellow Dog With Cone.

It Sucks Being A Valet In GTA Online

The newly opened casino in Grand Theft Auto Online is a popular spot. Players are driving up to the casino constantly right now. Luckily for them, there is a valet working the front of the building. But being a valet in GTA Online is a dangerous job, especially if you are unarmed and out in the open. Since the casino opened, this poor valet has had what you might call a rough existence. Being killed, beaten, burned and trolled regularly.

Earlier this week, GTA Online’s long-awaited casino finally opened and players came rushing through the doors to gamble and chill with friends and strangers. But outside, not having any fun, players encountered a lonely valet. This man, wearing a red vest and black pants, was waiting there to park players’ cars. This feature is currently hard to use because the dude is always dead. It turns out, most players seem to see the man in the red vest as a target.

Almost immediately after the update launched, players began attacking the valet, including many players setting him on fire. They really like doing that.

But even on fire, the valet doesn’t quit working. Players have shared clips showing the valet doing his job, even while fully engulfed in red hot flames. That’s some dedication to your job.

When the valet is not being attacked or burned alive, he is getting trolled. Players will often bring in ridiculous vehicles and then ask the poor man to park it for them. Players have shown up in planes, helicopters, submarines and even a giant dump truck. Come on, folks. He can’t drive this stuff. Besides, where would he even park it?

All this harassment and abuse has had an effect on the poor guy. Some players have noticed him freaking out for no reason or running away suddenly. Can you blame him? Every few minutes he is getting shot at or attacked. I’d start losing it too, under those circumstances.

As time goes on it seems he isn’t going to take all this punishment lying down. He is ready to fight back. Players who start a fistfight with the overworked valet might discover he has a mean hook and is ready to punch anyone who pushes him too much.

Another player discovered what happens when you drive too fast near the valet.

Because the valet is so often dead and nowhere to be found, some players have decided to put on the red vest themselves and jump online to take over the job. The current valet probably deserves a break anyways. Of course, players taking over the role quickly discovered just how deadly it can be to be a valet in Los Santos.

How does the valet keep coming back in GTA Online, day after day and death after death? Well, it seems this casino is cloning the poor guy. Though sometimes the cloning process gets out of control and because of this, players have sometimes pulled up to a casino sporting a dozen or more men in red vests.

One day, if we all keep killing the bastards, they might finally snap and their clone army will destroy the world of GTA Online. So be careful and maybe give that poor guy in the red vest a break the next time you visit the casino to do some gambling. He has a rough life as it is.
