Rockstar continues to stock up GTA Online with new content. This week the Manchez Scout has finally been added along with a range of discounts for the Kosatka submarine. Also, the Toreador has been added as this week’s Podium Vehicle.

Despite being released 8 years ago, GTA 5, in one form or another, still continues to get more items and opportunities added to it. This week’s update is no exception.

Thanks to our usual GTA Online leaker TezFunz2, we have information on new vehicles and discounts in this week’s update & patch notes.

Manchez Scout added to GTA Online

Originally announced during the Cayo Perico expansion, the Manchez Scout has now been added to the game.

Described as a military off-road motorcycle, the Manchez Scout is a stylish and nimble beast. If you want to take a ride on it, it’ll set you back $225,000.

GTA Online Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel Reward

You’re going to want to make sure you don’t miss out on the Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel as this week’s prize is simply fabulous. Rockstar has generously put the Toreador up for grabs.

The Toreador is worth a staggering $3,660,000 and here’s the official description of the vehicle:

No land? No problem. With Pegassi’s submersible, booster-fitted sports car, taking your life and all its problems out to sea has never been faster. Nothing is as therapeutic for the soul as the endless blue of the Pacific Ocean and firing off a few torpedoes at passersby.

Major GTA Online Discounts

One of the biggest additions to GTA Online recently has been the Kosatka submarine that came as part of the Cayo Perico update. The costly submarine is fun but requires a lot of cash to upgrade.

Here are some new discounts for it to ease that burden:

  • Sonar Station ($900,000)
  • Guided Missiles ($1,425,000)
  • Moon Pool Vehicles (S>$1,361,250 – A>$1,158,750)

30% Off

  • Coquette D10 ($1,057,000)

25% Off Vehicles

  • Alkonost ($3,262,500)
  • Stealth Annihilator ($2,902,500)

That should just about cover everything in this bumper update to begin the new year. We are surely counting down the weeks until we get GTA 6 details so keep enjoying GTA Online in the meantime.

Apex Legends Season 9 teaser: Olympus map changes and new Legend

Apex Legends Twitter account teases Olympus map changes and new Legend in a video celebrating 100 million players.

Apex legends season 9 teaser

To celebrate 100 million players on Apex Legends, the developers tweeted out a video showcasing some new content, teasing map changes, and the new Season 9 Legend.

Over on Apex Legends Twitter account, @PlayApex, a video was dropped to celebrate 100 million players on the game.

In the video, streamers and even e-sports commentators for Apex Legends were featured in a collage of videos, celebrating the huge support of the community of the past two years.

The most interesting thing about this video, however, was the teasers that came with it. Popular data miner @Shrugtal was quick to show off the still images of what was teased.

Season 9 Olympus teasers

In the first image, it seems Hammond Labs will be getting a makeover, as the teaser shows off a completely changed location from what is currently in Apex Legends Season 8.

Furthermore, from the fourth image shown by Shrugtal, it seems Olympus will take on a much darker tone than what we are used to, as it looks like it has been set to nighttime.

We then see Mirage Voyage has made its way to Olympus after disappearing from Kings Canyon. The location of where it will be is uncertain and nothing can really be suggested from the small teaser shown in the video.

Legend teaser

Probably the smallest, but the most interesting part about this video is the Legend teaser towards the end. Apex Legends’ new Legend is briefly shown hovering above Mirage but is too far away to make out much detail.

The fact that the Legend is hovering pretty much confirms it will be the Soaring Aviator, Valk, which means Falcon. Valk has been mentioned by data miners in the past and her icon was even shown in the leaked Arena mode teaser not too long ago, which looked like a yellow butterfly.

The fact that Valk’s abilities are associated with hovering and flying pretty much validates that this is Valk, and that she will be coming to Apex Legends in Season 9.

At the end of the video, a date is shown, “4.19.21,” suggesting that this is the date we will see an official reveal trailer for Season 9. Perhaps this means Season 9 will launch May 5th; two days after the end of Season 8.

For more on Apex Legends Season 9 and the new Legend, Valk, keep it locked on Charlie Intel.

Fortnite leaks reveal more Season 6 vehicle mods

Fortnite Season 6 saw the introduction of vehicle mods, with leaks suggesting some interesting future options for your vehicle.

fortnite season 6 vehicle mods

New Fortnite leaks have been revealed speculating some upcoming vehicle mods to compliment the already well-received Chonkers off-road tires.

Fortnite Season 6 saw the introduction of the previously teased vehicle mods, with some leaks suggesting additional interesting options for you to customize your vehicle.

Fortnite’s Update v16.20 saw the introduction of the first vehicle mod, the Chonkers-offroad tires, that helps traction and handling when players tackle off-road terrain. However, there could soon be some other interesting mods coming into the game soon.

Fortnite season 6 vehicle mods

Fortnite data miner, @Hypex, took to Twitter to reveal “2 more unreleased car mods categories.” The categories will include Front Bumpers and Rear Bumpers.

One item in Front Bumpers is the “Scoop,” which is most likely a feature that will allow players to destroy structures effortlessly and scoop enemies. The other mod found in the files is for the Rear Bumpers called the “Mega Booster,” which is probably some kind of rocket-powered boost that will increase the velocity of the car.

Hypex also mentioned a mounted gun, which could also be a Rear Bumper mod that will see players hopping on the back of vehicles to gun opponents down.

The most interesting aspect of these leaks, however, is the mention of “interactable mod garages,” which could potentially be some sort of station that players can mod their cars in. This does some fairly outlandish, especially considering that in the current version of Fortnite, players can find mods on the ground and simply attach them to vehicles.

However, a modding station may be useful for those who are unable to find this loot on the ground, or if players are just looking for a particular mod.

Either way, this all sounds exciting and could be implemented in the current season of Fortnite. If you were interested in this article, why not check out our guide on Fortnite Season 6 Week 5 challenges.

Fortnite Season 6 Week 5 Quests

The challenges will release on April 15, but thanks to leakers in the community, we can see the challenges ahead of their release.

Here’s the full list of Fortnite Season 6 Week 5 Quests:

  • Deal damage with SMGs (1000)
  • Search ammo boxes (5)
  • Use a campfire (1)
  • Modify vehicles with off-road tires (3)
  • Drive from Sweaty Sands to Colossal Crops without leaving the vehicle (1)
  • Maintain a speed of 65 or greater for 4 seconds in a vehicle (1)
  • Get 2 seconds of airtime in a vehicle (2)

These challenges are simple for the most part and can be completed by regularly play. We recommend completing these challenges in Team Rumble, as the competition is less fierce and you’ll have more opportunities to complete them.

Fortnite Season 6 vehicles

To equip the off-road tires, you can follow our guide on how to mod vehicles in Season 6. Once you’ve equipped the tires, you can complete the other vehicle-based challenge like driving from Sweaty Sands to Colossal Crops without leaving the vehicle. Getting two seconds of air time may be difficult, but you can always build yourself a ramp.

There is also a Legendary quest to complete for extra XP where you’ll need to find 5,000 Gold Bars. You’ll get XP for every 1000 found, so this challenge is well worth completing. You won’t be able to complete this in Team Rumble alone, but you can follow our guide on how to earn Gold Bars in Fortnite.

That’s everything for Week 4! Make sure to get as much Gold as you can and spend some time in vehicles and you’ll have them completing before next week’s release.
