In the immediate aftermath of the release for our second entry in the ILL-GOTTEN GAINS 1-2 punch, Los Santos residents wasted no time hitting the streets for a multitude of bonus incentives plus the chance to earn recognition and material spoils in an assortment of official contests as part of the Ill-Gotten Gains Event Weekend - Part 2. Here's a recap of all the shenanigans that went down during our Event Weekend livestream as well as the winning shots from the #illgottengains2 Snapmatic contest. And be sure to keep in mind that you've still got time to perfect your Rockstar Editor entries, as the entry period for that particular contest runs through August 3rd.
THE OFFICIAL EVENT WEEKEND LIVESTREAM FEAT. TYPICAL GAMER, HIKE THE GAMER & XPERTTHIEF
To kick off the Ill-Gotten Gains Event Weekend Part 2 properly, we pitted some of the community’s deadliest streamers against each other (and us), armed with the brand new gear, guns and rides on the Rockstar Broadcast Event livestream. In case you didn't catch the live show, you can check out the full recording from the perspective of either Typical Gamer or HikeTheGamer in the videos below:
If you're looking to replicate the action from the livestream, be sure to bookmark the Jobs we played (linked below) that make the most of the new vehicles and weapons featured in the latest Ill-Gotten Gains Update:
- STUNTING (EPIC lake jump) (Xbox 360 / Xbox One): Creator FINezula’s huge ramp should help you across the Alamo Sea, but swimming is also allowed in this tricky GTA race.

- Grass Route (All platforms): Put your off-roading skills to the test through the hills of Los Santos County in the brand new Coil Brawler.
- Vineyard LTS (All platforms): Keep a low profile in Marlowe Vineyards or pick off your foes from the hilltop in this high-intensity Last Team Standing matchup.
- The Great Adventurer (All platforms): This lengthy R* Verified Race from DeadRooster invites you to burn rubber all the way from Los Santos International Airport to the base of Mt. Chiliad in your shiny new Progen T20.
