Rockstar Games came up with a lengthy explanation about the different features of “Grand Theft Auto Online’s” The Doomsday Heist when the update was released. However, the American video game publisher may have left out some details about the free massive update, such as the fact that players will be charged $20,000 if the jetpack they are using crashes.

Hours after The Doomsday Heist update for “GTA Online” went live, many players took to Reddit to share the interesting things they discovered about the new adventure. One player posted a warning about the new jetpack that Rockstar introduced with the update. According to him, players are being charged $20,000 if the jetpack they are flying crashes while someone is trying to kill them.

Jetpacks aren’t listed in the game as weaponized vehicles, and they also cost a lot ($2750,000 - $3,657,500), so some fans are bothered by the amount that is being charged by Rockstar in case the vehicle blows up. One Reddit user with the handle Pkplayer even subtly called out the publisher when he wrote: “Impressive how they keep finding ways to milk us.”

Meanwhile, other players noticed the changes that Rockstar did to Lester. In a separate thread, one Redditor pointed out that Lester is no longer harassing players by giving them phone calls just to talk about the new heist. Another fan shared online that completing The Doomsday Heist will allow Lester to remove the wanted level of the player for free. Both are seen as perks, so fans are pleased that Rockstar made these changes.

For those who have yet to jump into the new massive multi-part co-op mission of “GTA Online,” The Doomsday Heist is already available to play for free. The goal of this new mission is to save Los Santos underworld including an arsenal of new military vehicles, weapons and whatnot.

With the new update, players are given access to mark 2 versions of a number of fan-favorite weapons, such as SNS Pistol, Heavy Revolver, Special Carbine, Pump Shotgun, Bullpup Rifle and Marksman Rifle. The upgraded weapons are available via the Mobile Operations Center or Avenger’s Weapon Workshop.

The Doomsday Heist also adds new vehicles to “GTA Online,” but players should take note that they don’t come cheap. Below is a list of the vehicles and their prices, courtesy of VG 24/7:

The official description of The Doomsday Heist reads: “Billionaire entrepreneur Avon Hertz and his pet neural network Cliffford have stumbled upon evidence that nefarious outside forces are working on a plan so diabolical it could end life as we know it. Somehow, Lester Crest is tasked with assembling a team deadly enough - and crazy enough - to do what it takes to bring them down. That’s where you come in. It’s going to take some luck, some firepower and some serious teamwork to take this threat head-on, assisted by Avon’s access to the latest in lethal blue-sky tactical hardware.”

Aside from “GTA Online,” Rockstar is also updating “Grand Theft Auto V.” The update will add a Frank Ocean radio station called “Blonded Los Santos 97.8 FM” to the “GTA V” game for PS4, Xbox One and PC. The name of the station is said to be a reference to Ocean’s 2016 album, entitled “Blonde,” as pointed out by GameSpot.
