Target Assault Races is a new mode in GTA Online where two players team up inside a weaponized vehicle.

One players takes charge as the driver, while their partner works as the gunner. The latter is tasked with destroying targets using a mounted gun, while the driver “races to outmaneuver the opposition” for additional points on each lap.

Points are earned for hitting targets. Score more points for smaller targets, and even more for hitting each in the center.

After each lap, the driver and gunner switch roles. The team which finishes with the most points wins. Players who finish in the top three and pass through all checkpoints will earn bonus points.

Players will earn double cash and RP all week in the new mode.
