Welcome to the GTA Wiki Weekly News!
I hear there are some bonuses... alright let's be honest, was this week about GTA Online? No, of course not...
Of course, the biggest news this week was the announcement of Red Dead Redemption 2 by Rockstar on Tuesday. The trailer dropped on Thursday at 3pm GMT, which you can view here. It showcases a brief view of the beautiful world we all know Rockstar are the best at creating. Not much else is known yet but an analysis of the trailer by our partner, GTASeriesVideos, can be found here. All the information you need is within these links, and the game is said to be coming out fall 2017. Let's hope we don't get further delays like with GTA V.

So today, if you're not already up to scratch with Rockstar Games, or better still, Facebook in general, you may be aware that Rockstar Games just recently replaced the yellow/black themed Rockstar Games logo with a red/black themed one - these colors being associated with the Red Dead franchise. They also replaced the original GTA Online: Bikers cover photo with a reversed color scheme of the red/black themed logo.
What do we think? Personally, I think a logo change - moving away from the yellow/black theme typically associated with the GTA series itself - is a sign that they're scrapping GTA Online updates and moving onto the next Red Dead game - could this be it? With GTA Online: Bikers being the latest update, and tonnes of r…Read more >

Hey there, and welcome to this week's edition of GTA Wiki Weekly News!
The GTA Online Bikers update was released on Tuesday, and has been greatly enjoyed by many in the GTA Community. There honestly isn't much else that can be said on this subject other than I hope you all have fun growing your weed farms and making meth the Breaking Bad way!

Hey there, and welcome to the wiki's weekly news! It's October time and a GTA Online update is so close we could almost touch it! Let's get into it.
A quick update on the GTA Online Bikers update is that the release date is October 4, 2016, meaning it will be here with us at 10 am GMT this Tuesday.
This weekend is also another GTA Online bonus weekend. It features 50% off all warehouses and offices, 25% off cunning stunts super cars, 50% off the turreted limo, 25% off all special cargo crates, and 25% off Buckingham Swifts & Luxors.

Hey there. and welcome to GTA Wiki Weekly News. A lot has happened in the GTA Series this week, so let's get right into it!
Alright, so, probably the most important news this week is the announcement of the Bikers update for GTA Online. Although we may not have a release date yet, there has still been a lot announced for the free DLC, and a release date is surely just around the corner; I am almost 100% sure it will be released sometime around early-mid October. The update allows up to 8 players to create their own Biker crew. The Biker MCs will have their own ranking system; players can start off as a Prospect and eventually, if they're good enough, become club President. The update includes a wide range of new motorcycles, game modes, prop…

Hey there, and welcome to GTA Wiki Weekly News! Let's get straight into it.
In GTA Online, Rockstar are continuing to hand out "GTA Online Bonuses", which is the same thing that they gave out last week; I guess they ran out of things to name them. The bonuses this week (running 16th September to 22nd September) are: half price off everything at Warstock Cache & Carry, double GTA$ and RP in Drop Zone and Parachuting, 25% off the Armored Kuruma, 50% off all Merryweather services, 25% off body armor, assault rifles, ammo and throwables. Also, this week's Premium Stunt Race is Threading the Needle in motorcycles. More info can be found here.
Did you know it was on this day three years ago that Grand Theft Auto V was released? Because I only realis…

Hey guys, and welcome to this week's edition of GTA Wiki Weekly News! This blog is here to keep you up to date with the weekly goings-on in the GTA Series and on the wiki itself. Let's get straight into it.
In Grand Theft Auto Online, this week's online bonuses (which for once don't actually have a name) are pretty vehicle and property related; there is 50% off all yachts, 50% off properties and offices, 25% off the Banshee 900R upgrade at Benny's, a double GTA$ and RP playlist, 50% off Cargobobs and Valkyries, and 25% off all high-end apartment interiors, office interiors and office modifications. Some more in-depth detail can be found on the full article on Rockstar's Newswire here. The bonuses will last from September 9th until September …

Hey guys, and welcome to the second edition of the wiki's weekly news. This blog is here to give you the latest updates on what has happened this week and what may be happening next week, so let's get straight into it!
Perhaps the biggest bit of news relating to the GTA Series this week was the news that failed actress and all round crack-head Lindsay Lohan lost her lawsuit against Rockstar, who she claims used her likeness for promotional purposes in Grand Theft Auto V. Not sure who I mean? Well you will when you take a look at the image on the right, it's Bikini Girl! She was probably the main artwork Rockstar used and continues to use when advertising GTA V (heck, the background of the artwork is our wiki's background!). It can also be fou…

Hey, and thanks for checking out the return issue of GTA Wiki's Weekly News! The news has been gone for over a year (maybe even two, who knows), and it is a great feeling for me to know it is back, hopefully meaning that it can help to serve as a latest news hub for all GTA Wiki editors.
As you can probably guess, the news blog will be weekly, being published every Saturday to let all users know what has happened during the week on both the wiki and in the series, and inform everyone on what is to come. The wiki has slowed down a bit this year, most likely due to the long wait for any new GTA games, but as Grand Theft Auto VI likely grows closer, the wiki should start to bustle again.
So, without further ado, let's get into it!
Fans of Grand Theft…

What were your favourite radio stations in the GTA series?
- It's Unleashed FM (GTA 1)
- King 130.7 (GTA 2)
- Head Radio (GTA III/LCS) [only because it was the closest to a rock station]
- V-Rock (GTA VC/VCS)
- Radio X (GTA SA)
- LCHC (GTA IV)
- Radio Broker (GTA EFLC)
- Anvil (GTA CW)
- Channel X & VBR (GTA V)
Sooo... What type(s) of sounds annoy you the most in the Grand Theft Auto series?
Mine include the fact that literally every driver gets his head stuck on the horn in a cliché way, when killed inside their car (especially when caused by vehicle bumps) in both GTA IV and V.Read more >
I have tried all the chase missions and GTA 5, and got these results.
Don't mind the cutscenes, those are something else.
- Franklin and Lamar - Pretty easy. If you go fast enough or use Frank's ability, you'll be able to hit lamar's car, but he won't lose control as always known for these kind of chase scenes.
- Father and Son - Only the truck is fixed to the path. The trailer can sometimes be rammed in different directions.
- Chop - could possibly do it with frank's ability or fully upgrading the van using money mods.
- Three in a row. Marriage Counseling - Still trying. Probably not possible since you're driving as michael.
- The Jewel Heist (Both ways) - The bikes are fixed to path. I'll try this again sometime.
- Mr. Phillips - during the chase, the Gan…
I've been doing some major experimenting this evening. I was driving around in a police chase with my Stallion in GTA IV, and noticed that a sudden hit on the breaks while cornering 90 degrees didn't actually cause the car to steer. It was at this moment I realized, the car doesn't have ABS, whereas many other cars I had done similar actions in, did. I'll talk you through it.
Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) is a system which stops wheels locking up under braking pressure. This system applies short bursts of braking pressure, rather than one constant amount of pressure, allowing the wheels to move for very short bursts of time.
To see whether a vehicle has ABS in the real world, several tests can be done with the car (assuming these test…Read more >

My favourite vehicles are Moonbeam and Rancher, I drived a Moonbeam from Grove street (Los Santos) to Fort carson (Bone County), I drived a Rancher all the way from San Fierro to Las Venturas.
2nd favourite is the Tuners (Elegy, Flash, Jester, Stratum, Sultan and Uranus), I like Sultan more than the Others. Because i drive a Sultan from Los Santos to Las Venturas.
3rd favourite vehicle is Faggio, Pizzaboy, Wayfarer and Admiral, But i like Faggio and Wayfarer more than Pizzaboy and Admiral.
4th favourite is Bike, BMX, Mountain Bike and Oceanic.
5: Merit, Marquis
6: Sanchez, Dune, Coach

An article concerning real life events is in urgent need of updating.
The Controversy article contains severely outdated information, particularly with regards to lawsuits and trials which have long since concluded. The issue is severe enough in my opinion that I felt the need to post it as a personal blog, and I have now posted it as a news article due to inaction. Real life event articles in particular should always be kept up to date, as it can otherwise be misleading. For additional information, see the article in question's Talk page.

Another transnational game, e.g. in Red Dead Redemption you could travel between America and Mexico at will, it would be cool if this feature would be brought into a GTA game. I would like to see in a future GTA game is a GTA version of San Diego and South-Western California, heading south from there is a GTA version of Imperial Beach and surrounding countryside, just south of that is an actual, working GTA version of the American-Mexican border crossing, which heads into a GTA version of Tijuana and North-west Sonora.
There could be chapters on both sides of the borders, e.g. maybe you could be hunting a highly influential gang boss who betrayed you, after taking his gang on head on and conquering his mansion in America he heads south into…Read more >
Hey, there, everybody! I joined a while back, after I acquired an Xbox One copy of Grand Theft Auto V. I fell in love with the game. After completing the story mode and playing GTA Online for a decent amount of time, I stumbled upon this Wikia and joined it. I made a good (well, good for me) number of edits until I just went absent. Sure, I popped on from time and time, but I never went on as frequently as I did. I got into other video games like Team Fortress 2, which I will still probably play. I just lost interest in Grand Theft Auto itself. But, recently, I played it with a friend and had so much fun. So, I'm going to get back into GTA V, and that means I'm going to try to be more active on this Wikia, whether that means hanging around…Read more >
Hey there! I have come into contact with a nice person via email who has gained lots and lots of RSC-stats in numerical form, and was wondering how the hell this is done. Well, he told me. It's a really simple way, and this will help us in terms of listing the percentage of vehicles in the statistics table (the new one that I'm proposing, as it would work perfectly). Here's how!
1) Get onto Social ClubRead more >
2) View the vehicles
3) Select "Toggle Stats", so all the stat bars appear on the vehicles
4) Highlight the entire graph of a vehicle
5) Copy and paste this into a word processor. If done correctly, the data will be pasted in numerical form, specifically a percentage. While this isn't exactly a speed, this is still data that we should be documen…
Yo! So, I've finally decided to come to terms with this idea...using sound to define manual or automatic gearboxes.
The idea came to mind when I was listening to my Kuruma accelerate in GTA Online, no radio, hardly any traffic, and I noticed a tiny clunk sound between every single gear (before the engine became too loud to hear it). I think this would be great, because I've noticed, for example, the T20 doesn't have this, I can hear what sounds to be a dual clutch - flaps behind the steering wheel. Other cars just have CVT (Surge, Dilettante), whereas a lot have this manual gearbox sound applied.
Here's two cars that I recorded a while back:
Notice the clunk? I've noticed it a lot in switching from reverse to neutral/first (do cars even have neu…

I have been here since 2013, and I don't know why, but I was suddenly struck with the idea to find out who is the founder of this wiki, but I can't find him or she. Can anybody help me? I want to find that out, I don't know why myself. Probably to know.Read more >
Right, Cammy boy, it's my turn now :P
Here's my ideas to expand story-mode Grand Theft Auto V. Just like Cam, I'll be separating by updates. Vehicles, weapons and anything else.
- Spawns at the Redwood Light District, where it can be used for Circuit Criminals races.
- Can be purchased from Southern San Andreas Super Autos after completing Circuit Criminals, for $25,000.
- Spawns around Vespucci Beach and Del Perro Beach, sometimes modified.
- Spawns commonly around the said beaches.
- Appears in the Random Pursuit 1, where it is being pursued by three Police Cruisers through Richman.
- Appears in the Los Santos Golf Club car-park.
- Appears parked on the Del Perro Beach, commonly surrounded by hipsters.
- Spawns driving up Procopio Beach.

Since i hated it to kill Zhou Ming and Chan Jaoming i decided to make a optional Mission, which you either can choose this or the Option where you have to play Hit from the Tong and Clear the Pier the option names are:
Takedown (It will give you the ability to play Hit from the Tong and Clear the Pier)
Track (It will you give the ability to play this mission)
When you choose this option, at Salt In The Wound then Huang, Heston, Zhou and Chan will work together to kill Kenny.
[Zhou and Chan are walking to Huang before the cutscene appears which Chan's Theme Plays]
"Working together to kill me huh? Too bad! I found you guys in the FIB files!" says Huang with a angry face

So recently i got this idea. It may not be a spectacular idea, but if we have most details of a character in the infobox, why not add an email adress section too?

We are in urgent need of staff! We need suitable users to apply for Patroller.
Patrollers are staff members who are given special rights to keep the wiki clean and maintain it. They are given the Rollback tool that allows users to quickly revert vandalism. They are also given Chat moderator rights that allow them to kick and ban users from the wiki's chat.
To qualify for rollback rights, editors must have been active for two months with no rules violations. Rollbackers must receive a 60% 'yes' percentage to be promoted. Users who apply within three months of joining will face a three month probationary period. This may also apply in situations such as inexperience or users who were previously demoted. At the end of the three months a review will …

After about 5 months of owning GTA V and Online (having been given the game as a gift at Christmas), I've managed to rise up the ranks in GTA Online, and am currently a Level 33. Through this period, I found many vehicles to be very good for new players, and I'm still finding ones that would be good for new players even now.
All of these cars can either be purchased on the In-game internet, or can be readily found 'in the wild' on the road, ripe for the taking!
This list will probably expand as I find more good choices, but for now, here's the Top 5, in ascending order, with 5 considered the best out of the set.
1. Dubsta - This SUV is easy to insure and relatively easy to find on the road, although for some people it may be more common than …Read more >
Hello, I'd like to ask a question about music classification for games in the 3D universe, Since these six games don't feature any original sountrack apart from its main theme (GTA V has an original score), how should we call articles about ingame music? 'Radio stations in...' sounds good, but then, for example in GTA Vice City's radio stations article, we are told about some songs that are featured on cutscenes but on no radio stations. If they're part of the sountrack but not of any radio station, why are they listed on a 'Radio stations in...' article? Maybe we should make a separate article about the soundtrack, explaining how songs were programmed to play on certain cutscenes, on certain actions, an article which may also contain info…Read more >
Wow! It's been a while since a post like this has been made! I've been slacking off a bit lately myself, so I figured I should start with a news blog post. So, the Lowriders: Custom Classics was released yesterday, and with it brought a few neat little trinkets into the game.
For vehicles, we got the Faction Custom Donk, a modified version of the Faction, the Custom Slamvan, a lowrider version of the Slamvan, and the Classic Virgo, a lowrider from Grand Theft Auto IV. As far as weapons go, there was a Double-Barrel Shotgun, and a Compact Rifle. There was also several new clothing items, that are various urban styles.
I personally really like it, and the Doubled-Barrel Shotgun, Classic Virgo and clothing are pretty great.Read more >

I considered leaving this on my user page but it was too much clutter, and it's not important for the Community Noticeboard.
To anyone who has noticed a decline of activity and interest; after some consideration I have decided to wait until the end of the year before making a decision on my wiki future. I plan to have next-gen soon, and if that can't spark interest, then I'll be ready to call it a day.
I enjoy working here, and I've gotten close to most of the staff, and some of the users, although a majority of them became staff anyway. I had a pretty shitty 2015, I had to leave a great job near the end of the year, a job I only got in August and I broke my leg, to top it all off. I've been pretty depressed about that, and I've tried coming…Read more >
Hey guys. So I came up with a plan; All Pegasus vehicles that only spawn in one colour when they're called for, yet are seen in different colours in missions and such, we should note down that they only spawn in one colour when called for.
- Insurgent Pick-Up - Only spawns in olive drab when called for, yet seen in Black in Heists, and dark Blue in Extraction.
- Technical - Only spawns in rusty white when called for, yet seen in Brown in Extraction.
- Valkyrie - Only spawns in gray when called for, yet seen in Black in Heists, and Sandy brown in a new mission (the variant without the cannon).
- Mule (Armored) - only spawns blank white when called for, yet seen in Black during Heists.
