Drifting can be a very exciting and effective way to make your way around Los Santos when playing GTA Online, so here is how you can drift your cars in GTA Online to score some style points.

The world of GTA Online has plenty of exciting things players can do, especially with the various cars that are available for the community to jump into and travel around using.

One of the most entertaining things players can do in their cars when playing GTA Online is to drift around turns for some smooth-looking driving displays.

With this in mind, we have gathered together everything you need to know to drift in GTA Online.

Now, going fast and using your momentum is an essential thing when it comes to how to drift in GTA Online. However, you also need to know how to control your car when doing this, or you will end up spinning out and crashing.

Once you are going towards a turn at a decent speed, release the acceleration button but do not press the brake, as this will stop all of the momentum you just built up before the turn.

You will then need to turn into the corner in the correct direction. Press the handbrake once you have initiated the turn and keep the handbrake pressed throughout your drifting.

You will then need to press the button or key to make your car go the opposite direction of your turn to stop yourself from spinning out of control, so right if your drifting to the left and vice versa.

Finally, straighten your car out once you have finished the turn, and your drifting will be completed successfully.

Players have found that the new cars added in the Los Santos Tuners update have come with a low tire grip upgrade that can be attached, which helps make drifting much easier.

Another incentive for GTA Online players to take advantage of is the new Prize Ride vehicle challenge in which players can win a ZR350 for free. Our quick guide will show you what to do, and how to do it.

The Los Santos Tuners update is certainly up there with the Cayo Perico update in terms of importance. Many players love to earn lots of money, buy cars, mod them how they see fit, and parade them around the city.

As well as adding new cars and collectibles, the new update has also welcomed a fun new challenge for players to complete. GTA Online’s Prize Ride can be obtained by meeting a certain requirement, and we’ll detail everything below.

With GTA 6 apparently in the wilderness until 2025 and no new information about the game, Rockstar has stepped up its efforts to make GTA Online even bigger and better.

The Los Santos Tuners update has cool cut-scenes, meet-ups, and all sorts of content to satisfy car enthusiasts. But if you’re looking to extend your garage’s repertoire of wheels, then you have a chance to add the ZR350 to it – for nothing at all.

To acquire your own ZR350, you’ll quite simply place in the Top 4 in 5 Pursuit Races in GTA Online.

That’s the simple condition you will need to meet to win a free ZR350. Given that it normally costs $1,615,000, it’s definitely worth going after!

Here’s the official description of the ZR350:

The nods of recognition, the pointing, the fanboys passing out in ecstasy. Witnessing the big power ZR350 revving up to tear a hole through an underground parking lot never gets old. And when you burn these tires out, they’ll fight to see who gets to breathe in your polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons – because this much clout is seriously intoxicating.

How to equip a Detector & disable Alien billboards for Fortnite Quests

Here’s where you can find Detectors and disable Alien billboards for Fortnite’s Season 7 Week 9 Legendary Quest.

Published

Fortnite billboard under Mothership

It’s another week, which means there are new Fortnite Quests to complete! One of the more difficult tasks in the new set wants players to find and equip a Detector, then disable an Alien Billboard.

Fortnite’s 17.30 update officially kicked off another week in Fortnite, introducing the highly-anticipated Grab-itron weapon, and setting the stage for Ariana Grande’s Rift Tour concert.

While there weren’t many map changes of note, one thing that eagle-eyed Fortnite fans will have noticed is the appearance of billboards, which the Aliens have programmed to say “SUBMIT” whenever a player gets close.

Now, it’s up to you to stop the Alien’s message to players by finding and equipping a Detector and then disabling the billboards.

Here’s everything you need to complete Week 9’s Legendary quest.

Where to find and equip a Detector in Fortnite

The good news is that finding the Detectors are relatively easy, as they are all located in named Fortnite locations where there is also a billboard.

There are seven locations where players can head, which are:

  • Believer Beach
  • Boney Burbs
  • Craggy Cliffs
  • Lazy Lake
  • Misty Meadows
  • Pleasant Park
  • Retail Row

Once you choose a location to land at, you’re looking for a black crate somewhere in the area. The boxes are found outside somewhere, so don’t worry about searching every building you see.

Once you spot it, simply head over and interact with it. You’ll then be able to equip the Detector and start the second part of this quest.

The final part of this challenge is pretty straightforward. Once you have your Detector equipped, look for the billboard which has been planted in the area, walk over to it, and interact with it. The billboards are usually just outside the POI, but they’re big enough that you should spot them pretty easily.

It’s important to note that this challenge doesn’t track across multiple games, which means you must complete both parts in the same match. If you get the Detector but die before you get to the billboard, you’ll need to start from scratch.

It’s well worth taking on this Quest though, as the XP reward will help you rank up your Season 7 Battle Pass before Fortnite Season 8 kicks off.

GTA Online is back with another weekly update, this time for Aug 5. It includes the Seminole Frontier as a Podium Vehicle, brand new test track cars including the Dominator ASP, and 3x GTA$ and discounts.

The GTA Online Summer update is in full flow as new cars are being added, new Survival modes are here, and there are even new collectibles too.

GTA Online is in thriving right now, but in terms of Grand Theft Auto’s future, the latest rumor suggests that GTA 6 will now only be released in 2025, and a recent report about a GTA 6 amusement park map has been outed as false.

Until GTA 6 is official and we can be more certain, we will remain focused on GTA Online, and our usual GTA Online leaker TezFunz2 has been able to get early info on the new update.

Seminole Frontier Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel Reward

The Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel has put a free Seminole Frontier up for grabs for Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel players to try and spin to win this week.

The big off-road bad boy that is the Seminole Frontier is center stage on the podium this week. It’s not the most expensive vehicle the podium has seen clocking in with a price tag of $678,000, but free is free, and it’s great for when you need to leave the tarmac.

Here’s the official description of the Seminole Frontier:

When a responsible adult buys a car, it’s a question of making sensible compromises. Your heart wants a feral, mountain-chewing 4×4 with bullbars and more torque than a Panzer division. Your spouse wants a family SUV with childproof locks, powerful aircon, and an airbag so big it’ll break your jaw if a fly hits the bumper. But look around you. Do we live in the age of responsible adults or sensible compromises? Enter the Seminole Frontier. Be safe, look reckless, have it all.

New Test Track Cars in GTA Online: Dominator ASP, RT3000, Vectre
