Celebrate The Country's Birthday With A New GTAO Update

Time to celebrate July 4th GTA-style.

Before the summer holiday is upon us, Rockstar Games has released a USA-themed update for Grand Theft Auto Online.

It's called the Independence Day update, and it's now available on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. This update boasts an "overabundance of patriotic flair," along with a new "Made in the U.S.A." t-shirt, masks featuring some of "this great nation's most fearsome and majestic creatures," and even the mullet haircut. ...I'm not sure the US should admit to inventing the mullet, though. Can't we just pretend that never happened?

Anyway, GTAO players will find new "star-spangled" vehicles in this update, and new guns will be available at your nearest Ammu-Nation locale (the Musket and the Firework Rocket Launcher). Oh, and if you've got the cash, you can spring for one, some, or all of the seven new properties. And if you're feeling particularly festive, you can visit Pleasure Pier and take a ride on the Ferris Whale or the Leviathan Roller-Coaster.

The July 4th celebration begins early in GTAO!

While you guys in here are "waiting* for the " best" possible version, here I am ranking up, making millions, buying cars, properties, warstock, monster trucks, and such. Basically preparing myself for when the Ps4 version comes out. It sucks trying to fight off a level 120+ when you are a beginner. You basically have no chance no matter how skilled you are.

Not to mention that I will, with my own 2 eyeballs, see the graphical improvement and really say, "WOW!" when my self sees GTAV for the first time on a next gen console.

I'm just saying, everyone starts of with a used car. Some people never get past used cars, some people buy new cars! Eventually.

Obviously I'm comparing the used car to GTAV on PS360. I cannot wait for the next gen version. I have maybe ... 400 hours in GTA online? Give or take.

Wow, I don't even have that much time playing Dark Souls 2 lol.

What's the easies way to make money in GTAO? I find it a little difficult to earn some fast cash. Mind helping a brother out here?

The best way to make money in GTA Online is to do Rooftop Rumble. You can select it from the missions menu if you're a level 75 or above. It is best played with 1 other friend. If you play Rooftop Rumble by yourself, upon completing the mission, you will spawn near Martin's house which means if you select the mission again you will have to drive back to the mission area. This can waste time if you are trying to make some money.

However, if you have a friend, either one of you has to stay near the mission area so that when the mission is complete the person that stayed back stays near the mission area. Who ever stayed back must select Rooftop Rumble again and after the lobby, both of you will spawn near the mission area.

I just checked my social club account. I've logged in 399:13:56 hours! Yikes. Safe to say I got my moneys worth.

Actually, there is a better way to make money. Go to the social network and search for "Coveted x16", bookmark it then look in your playlists in game. It's a playlist where you play Coveted 16 time in a row. If you call for a tank or buzzard, leave it on the top of the mountain at the end of each mission and it will be waiting for you the next. I can usually blow through a mission with a tank in about 6 minutes.

And as far as a low level versus high level, you get the SMG at level 11 and the AK at 24. The high level weapons are just alternatives for when people are hiding.
