St. Valentine's Day Massacre Event / DLC

Grand Theft Auto 5 Online Walkthrough and Guide by CMBF & Dennis (Sanzano)
Thank you for printing this page from Remember to come back to check for updates to this guide and much more content for Grand Theft Auto 5 Online

St. Valentine's Day Massacre Event / DLC

Last Updated:
It' Valentine's Day in Los Santos, and nothing says "I Love You" like the warm wooden grip and cold steel barrel of a Guesenberg Sweeper machine gun.

Dress to the nine's in a new Double Breasted Suit, a 1920s flapper dress, or bare it all in some sexy underwear and paint the town red in a classically-inspired new ride, the Albany Roosevelt.

All Items are available for a limited time -- so picking them up now and keeping them in your inventory forever is a very good idea indeed!

Update content. The latest title update is required in order to use this content. Grand Theft Auto V is required in order to play.

A Spot of Update with your Expansion?

The latest FREE content expansion for GTA5 online -- The Valentine’s Day Massacre Special -- offers players a themed bit of fluff and stuff along the same lines as the previous chest-thumping Christmas adventure and the beach-themed expansion that came before that... But in addition to the following Valentine-themed content there is also a bit of practical in the form of bug fixes and the like...

On the Expansion Event side of things, we are treated to:

(1) New Jobs: Ten of Them!
The Valentine’s Day Massacre also includes 10 new Jobs spread all over the world -- Deathmatches, Parachute Jumps, Land, Sea and Cycling Races -- V-Day will never be quite the same for you after this! New Jobs include:

Creek (Parachuting): Players will able to jump off a chopper above the Raton Canyon, gliding into Cassidy Creek.

Heart Breaker (Bike Race): Race through the Grand Senora Desert and put your bike to test with the thrilling jumps.

Motorboating (Sea Race): Race through and make the jumps to the North of Mount Gordo with your love.

Property Values (Deathmatch): Players will have to keep a look out for the sniper at the property near Mirror Park

Shotgun Wedding (Team Deathmatch): These are small-scale deathmatch that take place near the church in Paleto Bay with shotguns blazing.

Vinewood Tours (Race): Race your car in the touristy places of Vinewood and Rockford Hills.

(2) New Ride: The Albany Roosevelt
There is always room in your life for a classic -- and this 1920s flavored armored limousine is the perfect example of “classic” (as long as when we say “classic” we mean a ride fit for a gangster that is!).

Available in GTA5 online via -- and your garage if you know, you already have one -- this car is cool.

(3) New Threads: Clothing that Makes the Man (and Woman)
Like the man said -- dress to the nines in a host of new double breasted suits and 1920s era flapper dresses, or hey, you can also bare it all in sexy undergarments! It is a love holiday after all!

Check out the threads or lack thereof both vintage and modern by hitting up your fave clothing store. Just saying.

(4) New Weapon: The Gusenberg Sweeper
The Gusenberg Sweeper is a machine gun -- but it is not just any old machine gun... Wait, actually yeah, it really sort of is any old machine gun! But hey, why split gnits of that sort?

Now head over to Ammu-Nation right now. NOW! Grab you that weapon and stock up on ammunition because hey, we have no way of knowing if it will be available after the expansion event times out!

Fair warning though -- the fun starts today (FFriday, 14 February 14) but as to how long it will last? Well, your guess is as good as ours! So get your fun in while you can -- don't let this be like the Christmas Special Event where you got to taste it but then it disappeared before you chomped it good and full, right?

Serendipity? No, just some bug fixes and additions stuck in with the SE that's all!

This update includes a mix of the Special Event-related Additions, bug-fixes, changes to Items, and additional new not-related-to-the-SE items as well!

So why not organize the list so it makes more sense and you can get at the things you are most interested in with them grouped all together like?

Valentine's SE Related Stuff
The following line Items relate to the Special Event:

Vehicle: Albany Roosevelt.
Head over to and check it out!

Vehicle: The Rat Loader

Weapon: Gusenberg Sweeper.
Detailed in previous section of this page.

New Hairstyle: 1920s Era Styles

Significant (one might even say important) game Play Changes!

Passive Mode Modded: It Just Got More Fair!
Due to lots of complaints about the fact that even when you are in Passive Mode (even when you PAY to be IN it) resourceful players can still find ways to kill you! As a result and to balance that bit of nasty out, the following alterations have been made:

When another player kills you while you are in Passive Mode, that dirty rat will get stuck with your hospital bill! That is right - if they kill ya while PM is enganged, THEY have to pay the bill out of THEIR wallet!

Ah but fair play -- if you use Passive Mode as a safe haven from which to kill other players while being safe from attack (there are some ways to do that) YOU will have to pay THEIR hospital bill!

New Clothing / Masks
New Items have been added to Clothes Stores
New masks have been added to Vespucci Movie Masks.
