This Week Only: Get 50% off Assistance from Merryweather, Lester and Other Allies in GTA Online

Posted on August 29 2014, 8:20am | Author: R* K | Filed Under: Games

This week, calling for support from notorious friends in high places in GTA Online just got more affordable. So if you find yourself in need of backup, air support, transport or just need to disappear for a while, dial up any of your allies for a little "Roadside Assistance" and get 50% off the normal price.

Rank requirements for these discounted services have also been removed (please note that you will need to have received at least one call from each contact in order to use their service).

Brucie: Stay alpha with Brucie's BullShark Testosterone, which doubles damage inflicted and halves damage received.

Lamar: Call up Lamar and he'll send a mugger after any one of your chosen adversaries who'll lighten their wallet by stealing a portion of their cash.

Lester: One of Los Santos' most connected criminals, Lester can help you avoid the fuzz by persuading them to turn a blind eye for a short period of time or clearing your wanted level. He can also locate transportation (cars, boats, planes and helicopters) or play tricks with the radar - revealing other players or masking your location temporarily. Lester’s normal GTA$1,000 fee for setting bounties on other players has also been slashed to GTA$500.

Pegasus: Retrieve personal vehicles from Pegasus Lifestyle Management and have them delivered to your location.

Merryweather: Access all the paramilitary services that Merryweather Security Consulting has to offer at this reduced rate, including ammo crate drops, helicopter backup, boat/helicopter pickup, airstrikes and even your own private army of vengeful mercenaries.

These services can all be accessed via the Contacts Menu on your GTA Online character's in-game phone. Discounts run until September 7th.

    @umar48 shame I really need money and grinding takes so long :( takes about 300k to fully mod the Elegy and 150 - 200k for any other decent car.

      guys i think gta 5 online is the best game ever but the problem is the money. it has been so hard lately to get even a smidge of cash. i think heists are going to be the solution because 80 grand per heist sounds good, ps: it would be awesome if u could mod ur cars by attaching miniguns and othert weapons to heist trucks would be great. thx

            This 50% off is ok but does anyone else notice that the missions pay outs have been knocked down 50%· I mean Rooftop Rumble is only paying a little over 9000.

              @KrazzyK25 10.250 is what is paying actually now and it pays somewhere around 11.000 or something when u play with mpre people.

              @Jessie.Sevichay Actually I found its not the amount of people but the longer you take to deliver the package. You can't rush it. Unfortunately some people have no patients for this and leave.

                Hey RockStar, could you reset the world record times. I find it hard to believe that anyone can finish a race in 33 hundredths of a second. Just saying

                        Rockstar, when I try to join a death match I always get put into '100000 rp + 300000 xp' deathmatches. They are absolute trash and I am sick of having to quit and reload each time. Delete them or make an option so that I only access rockstar and rockstar verified content. I'm sick of 'Prison thugz fite' and other deathmatches which aren't even worth the time they took to make. Complete rubbish. 9/10 times the user created content is WORTHLESS. Delete them or sort it out.

                          @Jmz-X- You can, it's called join only a R* or R* verified match from the little tab on your online menu called, get this. JOBS and then pick R( or R( verified. How hard is that? Hmmm?

                        Muscle cars like the stallion from gta 4 or the clover from gta san andreas or the tampa from gta the ballad of gay tony would be boss but give us the ability to purchase another apartment with garage because after the classic corvette we got I had to trade in my massacro and now I have no room
