To take part in any of these events, just choose the Event option via GTA 5 loading screens or locate the Last Team Standing Event Playlist via Rockstar Playlists section found on the GTA Online Start Menu.
Earn Double RP with LTS and Creator Jobs, and Bonus RP with Crewmates
Enjoy double RP for all LTS jobs including original fan favourites such as Cypress Flats LTS or Beacon Theater LTS as well as gamer-created LTS jobs in Creator mode for the event playlist featured for the weekend.
Gamers can also enjoy extra bonus RP up to 20% while playing LTS missions with Crew members. The stakes are much higher this weekend especially given the Double RP bonus feature with LTS update which translates to 140% more RP over standard version with Crewmates onboard.
Free LTS Team Betting Stakes and Big GTA$ Payouts for Winners
Rockstar has raised the betting cap on all jobs to $10,000 for the Weekend Event, while the betting stakes go up to $7,000 for every player participating in the LTS event including those in the playlist.
You stand a chance to earn bigger payouts based on the number of rounds fixed for a particular job and your success rate with betting on your own team.
