Similarly to the CEO warehouse missions that were first introduced to Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the player-controlled executive offices found in the Further Adventures in Finance and Felony update, the latest online DLC for GTA V also adds plenty of new money-making jobs to the title’s open-world free roam lobbies. Unfortunately for fans of co-op gaming, users can once again only participate in some of this content while playing in a public open lobby, which forces them into a competitive session where users are rewarded for killing each other.
Thankfully for those looking for a more cooperative experience, the new Bikers update for Grand Theft Auto Online, which Rockstar Games released on Tuesday, also includes several new missions that actually allow friends to complete new free roam jobs from within the safety of their own private lobby. While the act of operating the new illegal businesses for motorcycle clubs is locked behind playing in the dangerous open servers, the Bikers DLC still gives GTA V players access to several new mission types that are available to small groups and solo players to enjoy on their own.
In order to participate in these new co-op missions, users must first purchase a clubhouse to form their own motorcycle gang. Once inside of the new biker headquarters, fans can then choose between a rotating assortment of new club missions. In order to begin one of the Clubhouse Contract jobs, players need to visit a special detail board located near the club’s table in a meeting room adjacent to the garage. Here players will find a wall full of various intel such as lifetime state of the biker gang. These bulletins, which look similar to the planning boards used for starting heist missions in GTA Online, allow gamers to begin the new biker jobs. It’s easy to miss how to play the new co-op missions since they must be taken from a physical location and can’t simply be initiated from within the interaction menu like other club activities.
Any of the Clubhouse Contract jobs can be done inside of a private lobby, leaving players to enjoy the biker content without fear of attack from rival players. Furthermore, the missions actually offer decent payout for completion. The rewards are comparable to Grand Theft Auto Online‘s CEO and VIP work as they each give around 16,000 to 25,000 dollars on average. Once a mission is over, players can revisit the clubhouse to pick up a new objective.
In addition to being able to be completed inside of a private lobby, many of these new missions in GTA Online can also be started by a single player without the need for a group. Some of the Clubhouse Contract jobs do, however, require additional teammates. A total of three missions are available at any time, with new jobs rotating in at set intervals. So users can simply come back later if they don’t like any of the current jobs that are being offered.
In total, there are 11 different missions available from the bulletin board.
- Cracked – Attack a rival gang and break open a safe full of money. Every participant is given a bag full of goods that must be delivered to a secure location.
- P.O.W. – Infiltrate a well-guarded area, such as a police station, to rescue a friendly captive.
- Weapon of Choice – Players must take out specific targets using certain weapons that are randomly chosen upon starting the mission.
- Gunrunning – Interrupt a weapons deal in progress in an attempt to steal the hardware for yourself.
- Torched – Try to take out an enemy gang by destroying their supplies. Users must set munition crates on fire in a predesignated area.
- Jailbreak – Stop a prison bus in transit to hijack the vehicle and help the inmates escape.
- Fragile Goods – Take down a series of vans belonging to the Lost Motorcycle Club.
- Outrider – Transport customers to wherever they want to go while on a motorcycle.
- Nine Tenths of the Law – Steal specific motorcycles and take them to a drop-off point.
- By the Pound – Acquire illegal goods and deliver them to the appropriate area.
- Guns for Hire – Offer protection to a convoy of vehicles by protecting them from attackers.
As the Inquisitr reported earlier this week, the Bikers update also added plenty of new bikes, clothing, and other customization options to Grand Theft Auto Online that should help players fully embrace the new motorcycle-themed content. Rockstar Games will also be streaming the new features throughout the week.
