GTA Online’s Dec 22 update brings the new Itali RSX Sports Car, snow, other Festive Surprises, and much more. The game is still very much reeling from its massive launch of the Cayo Perico Heist, but Rockstar is relentless in the desire to make GTA Online great.
The long-awaited release of the Cayo Perico Heist finally brought an island extension to Los Santos nearly seven years after the game’s original release. It’s fair to say that lots of people are still making the most of all the new content that the update added.
But Rockstar is certainly not stopping there as they have rolled out another weekly GTA Online update with shiny new items and eye-opening discounts to lure in potential buyers.
Thanks to renowned GTA leaker TezFunz2, here’s everything you need to know about the December 22 update.
GTA Online update & patch notes December 22
New cars: Itali RSX & Veto Modern
As well as vehicles added with the Cayo Perico expansion, GTA Online has now added two more stunning vehicles to own in the form of the Itali RSX and the Veto Modern.
The Itali RSX will set you back a whopping $3,465,000, but that’s because it’s a ferocious speedster that will ruin the tarmac with its speed.
Here’s the vehicle’s official description:
“Warning: NSFW. There’s a sexy single car in your area looking for a ride. Interested? Just open a private tab and check out these candid pics of the RSX’s sultry bodywork, hourglass waist, soft front, and silken A-line. But before you take it to the next level and see what’s under the hood, turn off your webcam and mute your mic. The conference call you’re ignoring is about to see your o-face.“
The Veto Modern is an equally sleek-looking design that makes go-karts premium. It won’t quite burn a hole in your wallet like the Itali RSX, but you’ll still need to fork out $995,000 to own it.
Here’s the official description of it:
“So you think you’re worthy of the Veto Modern? You better be. This vehicle is so sophisticated, so sleek, so moderately powerful, that it’s road legal. We think. We haven’t verified that yet…“
Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel Reward
If splurging absurd money on exotic new cars isn’t your thing, then you can always rely on the trusty Lucky Wheel to gamble on a posh new ride for cheap.

Festive Surprise & Still Slipping Los Santos
Snow is in Los Santos! As a yearly tradition, players can bask in a completely white Los Santos as snow will fall for the next few days. Head into GTA Online and you’ll find white for miles around and don’t forget to put down the pistols, pick up a snowball, and enjoy this rare occasion.
It’s well and truly the most wonderful time of year and decorations, snow, and Xmas trees all contribute to this. In addition to the themed scenery, players can expect a free Festive Mask when they login to wear and sing Christmas songs with.
Other login bonuses consist of:

Make sure to check shops too as there are masks everywhere to be bought.
Los Santos’s newest radio station is also here to treat your ears. The new experimental station favors the stylings of Electronic, UK Hip-Hop, and Dancehall music.
But there are 10 radio antennas located in Los Santos that you will need to collect in order to make Still Slipping Los Santos listenable across all of the map. Collect the antennas and you’ll get the radio station and a healthy cash bonus too, so make sure you use our guide on where to find the Still Slipping antennas for a $250k GTA Online bonus.

Apex Legends Shadow Royale: Start date, how to play, rewards & challenges
The Apex Legends LTM Shadow Royale is available for players during the Monsters Within Event. Here are all the details about the mode.
Apex Legends Shadow Royale is available during the new Halloween-themed event, Monsters Within. Here’s everything there is to know, including the start date, how to play, and challenges.
Although the Monsters Within Event dropped October 12, Apex Legends Shadow Royale has only just become available, but only for a limited time.
Many are wondering how it works, and what kind of challenges to expect for it, so here’s everything you need to know.
Apex Legends Shadow Royale start date
The Apex Legends Shadow Royale LTM will officially go live in the final week of the Monsters Within Event on October 26.
As the event ends on November 2, we expect this to be the end of the Shadow Royale LTM.
How to play Shadow Royale
Hosted by Revenant, Shadow Royale will be available to all players as an LTM. You will be able to select the mode on the lobby screen the same way you can change between Battle Royale and Arenas.
The mode is simple, players will drop into a map just like any other trios game, except when a player is eliminated, they return in “Shadow Form” to protect their squad.
In Shadow Form, players have enhanced movement capabilities similar to the Titanfall games, such as faster running, wall-running, and double jumping. When you are in Shadow Form, the goal is to try your best to protect your teammates from other enemy squads and shadows.
While you are a shadow, you only have a melee attack, so make the most of your enhanced movement speed and unlimited lives to overwhelm enemy teams. You will be eliminated from the game if all members of the squad become shadows. The last squad left alive with a living member/members will take victory in this mode.
Shadow Royale challenges
Now Shadow Royale has officially launched, players will have access to new challenges, some of which will be based around the LTM, and a new Reward Tracker that features a Loba skin and Charm.

How to unlock Kali Sticks in Warzone & Modern Warfare
Warzone and Modern Warfare’s Kali Sticks continue to be a strong Melee Weapon, and our guide will show you how to unlock them.
Despite the constant influx of new Melee Weapons each season, the Kali Sticks are still one of the community’s favorite, go-to weapons to get stuff done. Here’s how to unlock the Kali Sticks to use in Call of Duty: Warzone and Modern Warfare.
Many players get the same joy from using Melee Weapons like the Battle Axe as they do a popular weapon like the Cold War AK-47. This is why the Kali Sticks are still a great weapon to use, and newcomers are always looking to use them.
However, especially with newbies, not everyone knows how to equip these powerful, bludgeoning tools.
How to unlock Kali Sticks in Warzone
To unlock the Kali Sticks in Warzone, players just need to simply meet the following requirement: “Using the Knife, get 3 Kills while sliding in 15 different matches.“
Now, from the outset, this may look like a difficult challenge, especially if you’re just playing regular battle royale.
However, with the plethora of different modes that Warzone and Modern Warfare have to offer, we’d recommend you attempt to complete the challenge requirements elsewhere.
Tips to complete Kali Sticks unlock challenge in Warzone & Modern Warfare
There are two ways you can go about this: either play one of Warzone’s other modes that feature respawning or play Modern Warfare.

Here are our suggestions for each game.
Modern Warfare Kali Sticks unlock tips
- Modern Warfare features smaller maps and is a much easier proposition to unlock these handy Melee tools. If there’s a playlist that features Shipment or Shoot House then it would be ideal.
- Try and customize your playlist to pick constant motion game modes as Search & Destroy and Cyber Attack are not suited to this challenge.
- Have Double Time equipped and make sure you’re constantly moving and sliding as you never know when an enemy might just turn up.
- Use in-game information such as UAVs and make sure you’re keeping on top of this data as you don’t want useful breaks like this to disappear.
Warzone Kali Sticks unlock tips
- You’ll need to play some of Warzone’s faster game modes such as Plunder, Payload, and Clash to speed this process up.
- Again, have Double Time as your first Perk to increase the duration of your Tactical Sprint.
- Unlike Modern Warfare, we’d recommend you choose your moments to slide as Warzone is generally more open, an opportunities will beore limited – be smart.
Hopefully, our guide and tips will help you to obtain a Kali Stick for each hand so that you can engage clobbering time on any unsuspecting enemies.
