Those who’ve muscled through the rough patches with GTA Online can expect some new content next Tuesday in the form of the Beach Bum pack. Included in the next title update, the pack will add new weapons, vehicles, and missions for no additional charge.
Players will be able to mutilate each other in a variety of ways with the newly added SNS Pistol or broken bottle melee weapon, both of which will be available for free in-game at any Ammu-Nation. If exploration is more your style, you can check out the BF Bifta dune buggy, Canis Kalahari off-road truck, Bravado Paradise beach camper, or the Speeder speedboat. While the full list of new jobs isn’t provided, Rockstar has hinted at what we can expect from a few of the beach-themed missions.
- “Grass Route II” (Race): In this sequel to the original popular Grass Route Race, go off-road in an epic heat starting on the North bank of the Zancudo River through the treacherous wetlands with a triumphant finish on the beach in North Chumash.
- “Survival on Del Perro Pier” (Survival): Skip the ferris wheel for a deadlier kind of thrill ride as you take on waves of relentless enemies at this beachfront attraction.
- “View of Vespucci” (Parachuting): This leap sends you from 2,980 feet, down towards Vespucci Beach, weaving through palm trees to land on the basketball courts of the rec center. If you’ve got skills, it’s possible to freefall through the first few checkpoints before even opening your chute.
- “Paleto Beach” (Team Deathmatch): The locals complain that not a lot happens in this sleepy town, so do them a favor and wake ’em up with a barrage of gunfire exchanged between you and a rival team. This Team Deathmatch takes place right on the romantic shoreline for 4-8 players.
- “Sundae Driving” (Bike Race): Sure to be a new fan-favorite motorbike race, menace Vespucci Beach on your two-wheel rocket, taking breakneck corners as you try and best the competition.
