Rockstar is celebrating the donation season by putting a thick blanket of snow over GTA Online and Red Dead Online and giving a lot of in-game items for a limited time. Both worlds of the game are also decorated with wreaths, lights and Christmas carols for the holidays.
If you join GTA Online anytime between now and December 30th, make sure to head to Southern San Andreas Super Autos for the adorable, or in the words of Rockstar, “compact and agile” Grotti Brioso 300, which is definitely not just a Fiat 500.
GTA Online’s holiday event is basically just a whole lot of free stuff, and I’m not complaining. Log in during the event period and get everything on this list without spending a single GTA$:
- The Vibrant Stitch Emissive Mask
- The Red Bleeder Festive Sweater
- The Green Cluckin’ Festive Sweater
- The Tartan Livery for the Ocelot Ardent, Buckingham Akula and Karin Technical Custom
- The Candy Cane Livery for the Comet Safari, HVY APC and HVY Insurgent Pick-Up Custom
- A care package containing the Firework Launcher, 20 Firework Rockets, a full supply of Snacks and Armor, 25 Sticky Bombs, 25 Grenades, 10 Proximity Mines, and 10 Molotovs
Red Dead Online is doing the holidays the Old West way, with a free gun, bonus rewards for killing people, a new bounty and bounty hunter rewards, and a bunch more.
First, the brand new Winter Evans Repeater is free this week, and local gunsmiths are also giving out coupons for a coat and a free Repeater. Check out new festive versions of Make it Count – Bow & Arrow and Last Stand modes for RDO $ and XP trebles, and start your search for a new Legendary Bounty, Virgil “The Shepherd” Edwards. Bounty hunters are also receiving Double Character and Role XP in all role activities, including Bounty Targets and Bounty Hunter Free Roam Events.
Gray, black, brown and Turkmen horses also migrated to the southwest in winter. And, of course, it wouldn’t be a vacation in Red Dead Online without the Krampus Shotgun, which is once again available for purchase.
Discounts for festive papers include 10 gold bars from the Moonshine Shack, 5 gold bars from the butcher’s table, as well as a 30% discount on all Trader Wagons (including the Hunting Wagon), all Moonshiner items and Shack updates. Other holiday discounts include 40% off all shotguns; and 30% discount on everything on sale at Wilderness Outfitters, 30% discount on Bandoliers and Ponchos; and 30% discount on all Arabian, War, Work and Race Horse breeds.
Finally, in addition to the normal gaming benefits of Red Dead Online Prime, until January 18th you can get a free skill card upgrade and 50% discount on a weapon flyer on the fence.
