gta update jan 21 slamtruck

The Slamtruck has been added to GTA Online’s huge repertoire of vehicles along with a new Podium Vehicle and plenty of mouthwatering discounts.

It’s been an interesting couple of weeks in the world of GTA. The Cayo Perico expansion continues to deliver new moments and clips for fans to revel in, yet new, supposed details about GTA 6 keep rolling in.

From new GTA 6 patents to strange files in RDR2, GTA Online has taken more of a backseat this week. But that hasn’t deterred Rockstar from delivering another weekly update with exciting new content, and even a new vehicle to buy.

Our usual GTA Online leaker TezFunz2 has been able to get early info on the new update once more.

GTA Online January 14 patch notes

Slamtruck added to GTA Online

Originally announced during the Cayo Perico expansion, the Slamtruck is now a permanent member of GTA Online.

The Slamtruck looks like your average pickup truck, but more stylish, and packing a ramp. This versatile vehicle is going to cost you $1,310,000 if you want to add it to your collection.

GTA Online Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel Reward

The Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel has put a free Peyote Custom up for grabs for Lucky Wheel enthusiasts.

Normally costing you a hefty $620,000, you can lowride in style if you’re indeed lucky enough. Here’s the official description of the vehicle:

Once upon a time, in order to get your hands on a real Peyote you had to scope the right neighborhood, try to hotwire it before anyone saw you, lie low for two days, and only go to the mod shop after you’d dug the bullets out of your ass. Now, Benny will personally steal it, change the plates, dig the bullets out of his own ass, supermod it, and tell your friends you did it all yourself. Eligible for customization at Benny’s Original Motor Works.

10 Best Drift Cars in GTA Online

Players who want to show off how talented they are at drifting will want to use the best drift cars that GTA Online has to offer.

Published

on

GTA Online has a vast array of the best cars that players can use to traverse Los Santos at incredible speeds and get into all sorts of trouble when driving, especially when it comes to wanting to drift.

It doesn’t get much better than speeding down a road and executing some exciting drifting to get the blood pumping and show off for any other players who may be watching the skilled driving display you are putting on.

Thanks to some drifting tests and displays from YouTuber StevieWunderkid, here are the 10 best drift cars in GTA Online.

Best Drift Cars in GTA Online

10. Karin Futo

Best Drift Cars in GTA Online Karin Futo

Players will find that the Karin Futo is the best bang for their buck when it comes to having strong drifting capabilities without breaking the bank on a new set of wheels.

It’s one of the easier GTA online drifting cars to learn how to use, which means it’s perfect for beginners looking to hone their skills and can be bought at Southern San Andreas Super Autos.

9. Vulcar Nebula Turbo

Best Drift Cars in GTA Online Vulcar Nebula Turbo

The Vulcar Nebula Turbo is another underrated drift car in the world of GTA Online and is a low-skill level vehicle for players to try out drifting at lower speeds, but will not hold up so well when drifting at higher speeds.

You can find the Vulcar Nebula Turbo with the Karin Futo at Southern San Andreas Super Autos.

8. Declasse Drift Yosemite

Best Drift Cars in GTA Online Declasse Drift Yosemite

We now get to the first truck on the list with the Declasse Drift Yosemite. This muscle vehicle can also be purchased at Southern San Andreas Super Autos and is similar to the Karin Futo and Vulcar Nebula Turbo in that it excels at drifting at lower speeds.

However, it performs much better than the previous two GTA Online drift cars at higher speeds, so players looking for not too high-skill-level drifting vehicles that can perform when going fast will be happy with the Declasse Drift Yosemite.

7. Vapid Imperator

Best Drift Cars in GTA Online Vapid Imperator

Our next vehicle is the Vapid Imperator, and it will burn a bigger hole in your GTA Online wallet than the previous cars on this list when you go to the Arena War website to purchase this set of wheels.

However, this higher price will provide you with much more power and very smooth handling that will allow any player to flying around corners like an expert drifter.

6. Schyster Fusilade

Best Drift Cars in GTA Online Schyster Fusilade

Power is the name of the game for the Schyster Fusilade, especially when it comes to the price of this vehicle compared to others that provide the same level of drifting capability. It is not the best for lower-skilled drifters and would be better suited for those who have had some time perfecting this craft.

If the Schyster Fusilade is calling your name, you can try and find it on the streets of Los Santos or visit Southern San Andreas Super Autos to add it to your collection.

5. Willard Faction

Best Drift Cars in GTA Online Willard Faction

It is hard to find a better-looking vehicle than a traditional muscle car, and the Willard Faction provides this signature look with some impressive drifting capabilities. Its heavier frame allows players to excel in pulling off longer slides that will undoubtedly go well in any highlight video.

Benny’s Original Motor Works is the place to go if you are looking to secure the Willard Faction and see why it is one of the best GTA Online drifting cars.

4. Benefactor Schwartzer

 Benefactor Schwartzer

Those looking to snag a high-quality drifting car for cheap should look no further than the Benefactor Schwartzer, as this sports car combines affordability with power and smoothness that vehicles in a similar price range do not possess.

The streets of Los Santos or Southern San Andreas Super Autos are the places to look if you are looking to check out and purchase the Benefactor Schwartzer.

3. Bravado Redwood Gauntlet

 Bravado Redwood Gauntlet

Having a light frame allows the Bravado Redwood Gauntlet to shine when it comes to performing high-level drifting. This light amount of weight may cause some headaches when it comes to getting used to it, but some practice will have you flying around corners with precision.

Returning players can get the Bravado Redwood Gauntlet for free, and it is also available for purchase at Southern San Andreas Super Autos.

2. Bravado Banshee 900R

Bravado Banshee 900R

One of the most used and best drifting vehicles that players can get their hands in the popular Rockstar Games title is the Bravado Banshee 900R. Its insane power allows it to drift exceptionally well at top speeds, but its combination of performing drifting maneuvers at even low speeds makes the Bravado Banshee 900R one of the top choices for drifters.

Benny’s Original Motor Works is where you will need to make your way to if you want to get this vehicle at its highest drifting potential.

1. Dewbauchee Rapid GT

Dewbauchee Rapid GT

Balance makes the Dewbauchee Rapid GT what many consider to be the best of the best for drifting vehicles. Its more stable power compared to the Bravado Banshee 900r allows players to have much more control than the previous vehicle on this list, which can sometimes get out of control when you compare it to the Dewbauchee Rapid GT.

The Dewbauchee Rapid GT can be purchased at Legendary Motorsport for not too much money when you consider the top-of-the-line drifting capabilities that you are getting for the price tag.

Be sure to stay tuned to Charlie Intel for more news and guides for the adrenaline-fueled world of GTA.

Apex Legends devs tease Valkyrie videos on Instagram

Apex Legends developers have released some inconspicuous videos on Instagram teasing gameplay of the new Legend arriving in Legacy, Valkyrie.

Published

apex legends tease valkyrie videos

Since the official reveal of Apex Legends’ latest character, Valkyrie, the developers have released some interesting videos over on their Instagram page.

In the most recent news for Apex Legends, fans finally got to see the latest Legend, Valkyrie arriving in Season 9: Legacy.

It seems the developers were feeling extra generous, as they also decided to tease some in-game footage of Valkyrie, showing off some aspects of her kit and a potential finisher.

Apex Legends Valkyrie

Respawn Entertainment released another Stories from the Outlands short over on their YouTube channel yesterday, which was met by excitement from fans. Players also got details on the new season, including the name, theme, and even weapon coming to Apex Legends.

Respawn wasn’t done there. Over on their Instagram page, they also released three glitchy surveillance footage videos of Valkyrie gameplay.

The Apex Legends community has been breaking down these videos, trying to understand what they show. Dataminers GarretLeaks and Biast12 have potentially identified what some of these videos are presenting.

The first video is entitled “CAMERA 9: OPERATIONAL” and it is tough to make out exactly what is going on. With the help of Biast12, it seems this video could be hiding one of Valkyrie’s finishers, called “the After Burner.”

The second video is hard to make out; however, the video becomes clearer with the community’s help. As we know, one of Valkyrie’s abilities is her VTOL Jets, which allow her to hover in the air much like the Northstar Titan from Titanfall.

This is exactly what Biast12 believes this video is showing, while GarretLeaks thinks it could potentially be her Cluster Missiles. Towards the end of the clip, we see dark streaks that look similar to what you would see behind a missile.

The final clip is also very interesting, as it could be one of Valkyrie’s finishers, but one that dataminers haven’t identified yet.

This gameplay clip could also be her ultimate ability, which sees her take to the skies and redeploy either on her own or with her team, which would make sense as you can clearly see the fire coming out of her jets towards the end.

It’s hard to know exactly what’s going on in these videos focused on Valkyrie, but it’s great to see Respawn putting so much effort into their Legend reveals, increasing the hyper for Season 9: Legacy, which is set to release on March 4th.
