Any users that can download GTA 5 from the Epic Games Store are actually entitled to a free set of bonuses to claim. The “Criminal Enterprise” starter pack contains some much-needed goodies and here’s how you can claim yours.
With Grand Theft Auto 5’s life expectancy continuing on the PS5 and Xbox Series X, there’s still plenty of hype for the game and GTA Online’s continual updates mean that players have lots of content to enjoy.
Some players could be missing out on big content and bonuses that they weren’t even aware of. Any consumers that purchased GTA V from the Epic Store are actually entitled to the Criminal Enterpriser starter pack which grants $1,000,000, cars, and other glorious benefits.
How to redeem GTA Online Epic Store bonuses
Even if you’ve been playing your copy of GTA V, from the Epic Store, for some time, you still may not fully be aware that you have the Premium Edition and you’re entitled to extra content for free.
Let’s fix that and get you the free items you’re missing out on.
Claim your Criminal Enterprise cash
This one is the most straightforward one to get your hands on as the money is automatically added to your account. If you’ve owned the Epic Store Premium Edition for some time, then you’ll have already been rewarded the $1,000,000 from Rockstar by now.
If you have only just bought the game very recently, then the store does issue a prompt saying that it can “take up to 7-10 days” to reflect this money in your account.
Redeeming your GTA Online businesses and property
Your bonuses also entitle you to five buildings. For these, you want to go to the “Dynasty 8” and “Maze Bank Foreclosure” websites in-game. Then re-order the websites by price, lowest first, and your owned property will appear first – as you own them.
Be careful about claiming the 1561 San Vitas Street Apartment because if you’ve managed to get a different home already, it can take the place of the one you already own. This puts any cars you own in the other apartment in jeopardy and you could lose them.
How to get your free GTA Online vehicles
So, you’ve got your cash and buildings, it’s now time for not one, not two, but 10 free vehicles!
To get behind the wheel of them, you’ll need to head to the “Travel and Transport” tab on the internet and then make use of “Legendary Motorsports,” “Southern San Andreas Super Auto,” “Elitas Travel,” and “Warstock.”
Once again, sort by price – lowest to highest – and your owned vehicles will be there for you to get your hands on.
How to redeem GTA Online’s free weapons
Your final lot of loot comes in the form of some ferocious firearms that are sure to help you in most activities you want to engage in.
Claiming these items is the easiest way yet as all you need to do is simply walk into an Ammu-Nation store, approach the counter, and interact with the weapons on the wall until you find the Compact Grenade Launcher, Marksman Rifle, and Compact Rifle. Boom, they are now yours to go on a rampage with.
So, that’s how to claim your Criminal Enterprise starter pack. As we said, even if you’re well into GTA Online and somehow haven’t stumbled across these bonuses, then you absolutely should.

New game modes and Ranked Solos leaked for Apex Legends
Apex Legends Season 8 will be here soon, and new leaks have emerged suggesting that we’ll see a Ranked Solos mode among others.
A brand new leak has revealed some more game modes that might be making their way to Apex Legends in Season 8. This includes the long-awaited Ranked Solos mode and a new version of Kings Canyon.
Apex Legends Season 8 is almost here, which means that there’s a ton of exciting new content to look forward to. We might see a brand new Legend join the roster, some improvements for existing characters, and even new LTMs.
The battle royale has seen its share of different game modes over its Seasons, and the recent Fight Night Collection Event brought the Airdrop Escalation LTM. Now some new leaks are suggesting that the devs are planning to change things up even more.
According to these leaks, Respawn Entertainment will be introducing Ranked Solos and brand new game modes in an upcoming update. Here’s everything we know so far.
Is there a Ranked Solo mode in Apex Legends Season 8?
This leak came from data-miner SomeoneWhoLeaks, who posted images of someone testing out a few new game modes on January 14. These are planned to be revealed to fans when Season 8 of the battle royale goes live.
We see appearances from the Arenas Team Deathmatch mode, along with one titled “Anniversary Event Kings Canyon.” The leak also shows off some game modes called “Locked and Loaded” and “Death Trigger.”
Looking closely, we can also spot a reference to a Ranked Solos mode. This stands out from the others as it is labeled with “#PL_Ranked_Leagues_solo!”
This is something that will greatly please Apex fans since they’ve been asking for a Ranked Solos mode for quite some time now. The devs have made it clear that they don’t consider these to be “healthy” for the game, so they wouldn’t be implementing them anytime soon.
Keep in mind that these are still just rumors that have yet to be confirmed by Respawn themselves, so take them with a grain of salt. They even stood by their position on this topic on January 8, stating that Ranked Solos will not be added to the battle royale.
It’s possible that this mode is just being tested to assess data before releasing the new season. We’ll keep checking for updates, and will update you once we learn more.

How to find Cayo Perico Treasure Chests in GTA Online
Rockstar Games have added Treasure Chests to GTA Online as part of The Cayo Perico Heist expansion, and you can find them daily.
There are daily Treasure Chests hidden in The Cayo Perico Heist update that are worth $15,000 each, and you can find these when logging into GTA Online. Here’s how you can get your hands on them.
The Cayo Perico Heist brought brand new opportunities for earning money when it went live on December 14. The actual payout of the heist is impressive, and there are also other commodities that can earn you some extra cash such as gold bars.
Aside from doing missions and objectives, you can also find Treasure Chests when exploring the island of Cayo Perico before the heist. These are easy to find, and each one you come across contains $15,000.
Cayo Perico Treasure Chests locations
You can find two Treasure Chests daily when logging into GTA Online. One will be lying on the island, while the other can be found just off-shore in the water.
The game will notify you when you’re near one of these with the sound of bells ringing as you get closer to them. Just follow the sound until you see a prompt on-screen that lets you know that it’s time to open up the Treasure Chest.
Here’s how you can find them:
- Head to Cayo Perico to scope out the island
- Take a walk around that spot until you hear bells
- Keep walking in that area until you get an on-screen message
- Open the chest and claim the $15,000!
There are 10 possible locations where the chests can spawn on land, and these change every day. Luckily, YouTuber GTAMen has already compiled all of them on the GTA Online map.
Finding the ones that are underwater works the same way. The only major difficulty that arises is having to come up for air every few seconds after you dive into the ocean. For that reason, you should keep some rebreathers on you.
Just keep swimming towards the sounds of chiming bells until you get the prompt that tells you to open the Treasure Chest. GTAMen also went over all the underwater locations for these in another video.
So far, the Treasure Chests only rotate between these select locations. This might be subject to change later one, but right now you can find them by exploring these areas on the map daily when playing GTA Online.
Be sure to explore Cayo Perico as there are a ton of other fun activities and money-making opportunities at your disposal. GTA V’s first-ever map expansion has a lot of exciting content to offer, and it’s up to you to try it out.
