GTA Online’s new Bombushka Run mode now live, double GTA$ and RP on offer

GTA Online settles the eternal debate: would you rather fight a swarm of attack helicopters or one Cold War bomber?

The latest GTA Online update delivers the RM-10 Bombushka, a hefty plane with seating for six and guns for days. It looks to be one of the most formidable group vehicles in GTA 5.

The Bombushka comes equipped with front, top and rear-mounted .50 calibre turrets, but GTA Online players can upgrade it at the Hangar Workshop to gain the ability to drop Explosive, Gas, Incendiary Bombs, Cluster Bombs and other “goodies”.

To celebrate this new addition, Rockstar is offering GTA Online players double GTA$ and RP in the new Bombushka Run mode. Two teams of up to four each take turns to command either the Bombuskha or a group of attack helicopters, and the side who manages to keep the plane afloat the longest wins. Sounds like fun.


You’ll want the extra cash, too, since there’s a tasty sale on certain GTA Online customisations, which should allow you to kit out your new Bombushka just as you please – as well as the usual array of general weekly discounts. Details:

  • Hangar workshop – 25% off
  • Aircraft weapons – 25% off
  • Car and aircraft liveries – 25% off
  • Car and aircraft resprays – 25% off
  • Mobile Operations Center cabs – 25% off
  • Executive offices – 25% off

While we’re talking about GTA Online, this week’s feature Premium Stunt Race is Water Slide (Locked to Blazer Aqua) and the Time Trial is Calafia Way. As usual, top three finishers get a whack of GTA$ and everyone gets triple RP.
