GTA Online Independence Day Special


So many updates, so little time. Well at least with this one, as the special content will only be available for a limited time so for those of you who want it, you better hope back in to GTA Online and grab it.

From Paleto Bay to the Port of Los Santos and everywhere in between, it’s time to celebrate the birthplace of freedom with The Independence Day Special (in association with Ammu-Nation) for Grand Theft Auto Online.

Demonstrate your exceptionalism and own the road from sea to shining sea with two new star spangled rides, the Sovereign motorcycle and the super-sized Liberator monster truck. And protect your rights the same way our Founding Fathers did with the latest addition to Ammu-Nation’s antiques collection, the high-powered Musket… or channel your inner Jack Howitzer with the spectacular Firework Rocket Launcher.

Seven new properties have also been added to the Dynasty 8 rolls, including locations in Paleto Bay and Vinewood Hills that provide plenty of yard space to scorch the grass with your very own Fireworks show. Use up to 12 varieties with different fuse lengths to create a spectacle that would make even the most battle-hardened Republican Space Ranger shed a tear. If you prefer rickety amusements operated by minimum wage teenage workers over incendiary lawn displays, then venture down to Pleasure Pier where you can now ride the Ferris Whale and the Leviathan Roller Coaster.

This special seasonal content will be available to redeem in-game until Mid-July (we will announce a specific redemption expiration date soon). The automatic update for the Independence Day Special also includes additional game tuning updates and other adjustments, including the new On Call Matchmaking function. This new option allows players to accept a Job invite and continue playing in Freemode until that Job fills up, reducing time spent idle while waiting for Job to start.

Here is a list of the limited time content, so grab it while you can:

  • Over 40 new Independence holiday-themed clothing items, including outfits, have been added to clothes stores for both male and female characters in GTA Online.
  • Two new weapons have been added to Ammu-Nation: Fireworks Launcher and Musket.
  • Four types of Fireworks can now be purchased from Ammu-Nation. They each come in 3 colors, red, white and blue.
  • A new Parachute Smoke color has been added to Ammu-Nation. The color automatically alternates between, red, white and blue: Patriot Parachute Smoke.
  • A new tire smoke color has been added to the Mod Shops. This also alternates between, red, white and blue: Patriot Tire Smoke.
  • 12 new animal masks have been added to Vespucci Movie Masks. There are 6 styles, each with 2 color variations.
  • Four new horns have been added to the Mod Shop. Each horn is part of the Star Spangled Banner song.
  • A new Mullet hairstyle has been added for both male and female characters.
  • Stars n Stripes Face Paint added to Barber Shop and Salon.
