Grand Theft Auto 5 News: Rockstar Games busts out new weapons for GTA Online
GTA Online has been going strong for the better part of five years now. Since its initial launch back in 2013 (2014 for next-gen consoles and 2015 for PC), the game has continued to host a strong player base. Even today, GTA Online has managed to keep an average of 40-80+ thousand active players around each day, and that's from the Steam charts alone.
Considering the competition that's come out since its release, that's incredibly impressive. It's not surprising to see why, though, as Rockstar has continued to churn out more content and patches to keep its player base happy, even while they've moved onto Red Dead Redemption 2 Online.
In December, Rockstar brought players the Arena War update, focusing on vehicle combat and the use of new weapons in large arenas. In the latest patch, Rockstar added two new weapons in GTA Online - the Unholy Hellbringer and the Widowmaker. Both of these guns were brought from Republican Space Rangers, an in-universe cartoon show that can be seen in both GTA 4 and GTA 5.
The Unholy Hellbringer is a plasma rifle with three barrels. The Widowmaker is a heavy weapon, a plasma machine gun, specifically. Both of these weapons hold 9999 rounds and cost $499,000. You can pick either of them up at an Ammu-Nation near you in Grand Theft Auto.
