This week and until 16th August in GTA Online, get ready to take part in an island battlefield with the introduction of Assault on Cayo Perico! The Weaponised Conada is also being introduced, alongside the reintroduction of some classic Adversary Modes, bonuses on Bunker Sale Missions for those holding on to their weapons and getting ready for the Assault on Cayo, and more!
Remember this is just a preview, and information may change. On top of that, Rockstar may reserve things for their own Newswire.
We understand that not every Event Week will be to everyone’s liking, some will certainly be more exciting than others, but anyway…
Let’s get started!
The Assault on Cayo Perico is Coming, and More Adversary Modes Reintroduced
The moment a lot of the community has been waiting for is here. First teased in the San Andreas Mercenaries launch post, El Rubio is about to have an entirely different problem to deal with – and that is players battling it out like there’s no tomorrow, like you’re in a Call of Duty (Righteous Slaughter?) map, in his island of Cayo Perico. Starting 10th August, the Assault on Cayo Perico adversary mode will be available – it pits teams of Attackers and Defenders against each other in an intense crossfire across the island – and it’s paying double!
On top of the introduction of the new mode, other ones are making a comeback, as listed below!
- 2x GTA$ and RP on Assault on Cayo Perico
- Some classic Adversary Modes coming back:
- Occupy (secure and hold capture zones across the map and fend off others)
- Extraction (evacuate the VIP ASAP as a bodyguard before the Hit Squad gets to them!)
- Trading Places Remix (the Beast and the Juggernaut go head-to-head, fighting teeth, minigun and nail to… well, trade places in the winning spot)
Dust Off Your Bunkers – It’s Sale Time!

The Diamond Casino & Resort Lucky Wheel
Sources at the Diamond Casino & Resort tell me that they’ve been a bit concerned about the parade of military vehicles and assets being brought into Los Santos again, but that they think it’s nothing, just some more Merryweather posturing… of course they all got distracted (poor Felipe is once again hospitalised due to constant aggressions over at his valet spot) as soon as they saw this week’s Lucky Wheel vehicle coming in.
A classic off-roader buggy introduced with the DLC they all hate every time somebody executes it (Diamond Casino Heist), but one they have a soft spot for. Allegedly.
Get the Nagasaki Outlaw this week at the Lucky Wheel – should Luck be on your side, you’ll have quite the nifty machine for your mountain adventures. Southern San Andreas Super Autos also claim this will “drown out your mum’s disappointed speeches about growing up”, but I can’t guarantee that.
LS Car Meet Prize Ride
What’s better for the American population, especially one seeing all this military stuff happening, than an SUV? Sure, you may argue that it doesn’t belong in a tuner-focused garage event, but you’d probably be surprised to know that a lot of tuner-heads will like their heavies – both modern and vintage.
This week, place Top 5 in LS Car Meet Series for 3 days in a row, to win the Pegassi Toros. Legendary Motorsport claim it’s a mix of the 23rd century and a family-friendly SUV…
If SUV’s are not your thing, and you want something else, enter the Test Track! This week, you can find the following rides to test or buy as appropriate:
- Dinka Veto Classic (spicy addition to a tuner car meet! Go-kart meet anyone?)
- Pegassi Reaper
- Annis Euros (also 40% off)
Hao seems particulary excited about this week’s addition to his Premium Test Ride spot… a weaponised car! If you’re on PlayStation 5 or Xbox Series, find the Pegassi Weaponised Ignus for testing or buying.
Premium Deluxe Motorsport
I think this one has scared Simeon. But he is a strong man with a strong stomach, or so he says. His shiny showroom includes some military vehicles this week, alongside a Super and a classic Walton. What’s not to love? This week at PDM:
- Mammoth Squaddie
- Pegassi Zorrusso
- Declasse Walton L35
- HVY Nightshark (also 40% off)
- HVY Insurgent (also 40% off)
Luxury Autos has a mix of the retro and modern this week:
- Pegassi Torero
- Ocelot XA-21 (also 40% off)
Time Trials and Premium Races
Ah, races against time. You’ll either be biting your nails off about it, falling off mountains, destroying your remote car controller in a fit of rage, or, well… just winning. This week across the state of San Andreas, find the following time trials and premium race:
- Super Premium Race: Senora Freeway
- Regular Time Trial: Route 68
- HSW Time Trial: East Vinewood to Vespucci Beach
