Lets take a look at some of the jobs you should expect from Beach Bum, which includes deathmatches, parachutes, races, survivals and gang attacks to name a few!


  • “Sundae Driving” (Bike Race): This is a motorbike race at Vespucci Beach where you race and cut corners on your two-wheel rocket.

  • “View of Vespucci” (Parachuting): Your leap towards Vespucci Beach sends you from 2,800 feet down! There will be checkpoints to get before opening your parachute at the bottom. 
  • “Survival on Del Perro Pier” (Survival): On this Beachfront attraction you will take on some relentless enemies.
  • “Grass Route II” (Race): This race begins from the North bank of the Zancudo River all the way through the wetlands and then onto the beach in North Chumash.

These vehicles are available at no cost! The land-based vehicles are accessible from the Web site, and the Speeder Speedboat is available at on your in-game phone.

  • The Bravado Paradise Beach Camper Van
  • The fast and stylish Speeder Speedboat, which you will find an image of below. 


Beach Bum will include two new free weapons, and they will both be added to the three characters’ inventory in Story Mode. 

  • SNS Pistol: This is a compact and deadly pistol. 
  • Broken Bottle: This is a hand-to-hand combat weapon, which is great for close encounters. 

There were some comments from GTA fans saying that they are disappointed that these were the only free weapons available in the update. For instance, someone commented, “Just a broken bottle and SNS Pistol?”
