Rockstar gives us more details about Beach Bum DLC

5 min read

Come at me bro

Rockstar have pretty much ironed out all the issues they had with GTA V Online and are now ready to send out the first DLC of what I can only imagine is going to be a long line of added gameplay.

So what are we getting for our hard earned cash with the Beach Bum DLC? Well right off the bat you need to put that cash away as Rockstar are sending this DLC out for free and for nothing. What nice guys they are.

So what’s included?

New Jobs

They haven’t detailed exactly how many new jobs you are getting but they have promised a bunch of beach themed races, new parachute jumps, team deathmatch, last man standing, gang attacks and my personal favourite Survival.

Some of the jobs they have specified are as follows

  • Grass Route II” (Race): In this sequel to the original popular Grass Route Race, go off-road in an epic heat starting on the North bank of the Zancudo River through the treacherous wetlands with a triumphant finish on the beach in North Chumash.
  • “Survival on Del Perro Pier” (Survival): Skip the ferris wheel for a deadlier kind of thrill ride as you take on waves of relentless enemies at this beachfront attraction.
  • View of Vespucci” (Parachuting): This leap sends you from 2,980 feet, down towards Vespucci Beach, weaving through palm trees to land on the basketball courts of the rec center. If you’ve got skills, it’s possible to freefall through the first few checkpoints before even opening your chute.
  • Paleto Beach” (Team Deathmatch): The locals complain that not a lot happens in this sleepy town, so do them a favor and wake ’em up with a barrage of gunfire exchanged between you and a rival team. This Team Deathmatch takes place right on the romantic shoreline for 4-8 players.
  • Sundae Driving” (Bike Race): Sure to be a new fan-favorite motorbike race, menace Vespucci Beach on your two-wheel rocket, taking breakneck corners as you try and best the competition.

New Vehicles

To add to the new jobs we obviously need some new vehicles and Rockstar haven’t disappointed with the  addition of a new beach buggy, a Kalahari off-road truck and a camper van.

But the one I’m most excited about is the return to GTA of the Speeder Speedboat.

Zoom Zoom

These vehicles are also going to be available in single player mode so if you haven’t done it yet I’d recommend getting the speedboat when it comes out and and heading out to sea as far as you can go. It’s a guaranteed way to meet the sharks.

New Weapons

Personally I was hoping for Rockstar to add something along the lines of a potato gun or light sabre but they’ve decided to rather continue down the line of realism and the only two new weapons we are getting are the SNS Pistol and a broken bottle.

Okay fine I admit it I’m kind of excited about the broken bottle.

Character Customisation

And for those who care about their appearance Rockstar are adding some new character customisation options with surfer wear, tribal tattoos, board shorts, bikini’s and shaggy hair.

But hey I’ve got the shaggy hair already as you can see from my last picture I took after a leisurely Sunday drive.


Oh wait that’s the wrong character but man just look at all that blood. Here’s my online guy.

Eyes front gentlemen

Unfortunately we are still being told to wait on the much anticipated content creator but Rockstar promises those options are coming soon so hang 10.

The Beach Bum DLC is releasing next week and yes when I think of Beach Bum I don’t think of surfers I think of this.

    That header image looks like my last night out in Table View.

    • Admiral Chief Wang


    • Johan du Preez

      lol let me guess buckley’s 🙂

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Close enough, it was a bunch of guys kicking the crap out of another guy in the road about a block away :/

        • Johan du Preez

          Last time I was at buckley’s a nigerian tried for over a hour to convince me to smuggle diamonds over the border for him.

          Some interesting people there lol …

    • No Longer SIR Twakkus

      Man I miss that game.

  • ToshZA

    You realise in that shaggy hair picture there’s a topless chick right? Might want to blur that out a touch, family site & all.

    • TiMsTeR1033

      I was also abit like I see titties there…

      • ToshZA

        What’s odd for me are the tan lines. If she’s comfy without a top on at the party, why not just tan without a top?

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        I must admit I never noticed them, I was distracted by the asses beneath them.

        • ToshZA

          They are nice asses, for sure.

          • Unavengedavo(aka. IceCreamMan)

            The question is why did they swop bikini tops? :/

          • ToshZA

            The real question is: why didn’t Gavin show them swopping those tops?

          • Unavengedavo(aka. IceCreamMan)

            I think he is keeping those for his Female Acquaintance Person folder(or F.A.P folder for short)

          • ToshZA


    • Captain GUZ

      ( . )( . ) FTW

    • family site? Who said we were a family site 😉

      • ToshZA

        Hahaha, I guess nobody. Fine, you win. We win too, so it’s all good.

        • Unavengedavo(aka. IceCreamMan)

          Lol, and I think that was the intention as the roll over text does say “Eyes front gentlemen”

          • ToshZA

            Right, didn’t notice that.

          • Unavengedavo(aka. IceCreamMan)

            xkcd taught me to always read the roll over text 😛

          • ToshZA

            I never do. 😛

    • we’ve censored it… forced to by the man

      • ToshZA

        Sorry Gavin. 🙁 If it helps, I’m not the ma… Oh wait, no I’m THE MAN. But not the man in question. >_>

  • CaptainNemo42

    Making up for those IONs of earlier this week are we?

  • Fnuik

    I want free DLC that give me more single player missions. I find the online to be to much stop start. Do a mission, wait for people to join next mission, do that, wait for more people to join and so forth.

    But after finishing the single player you have all this money, but nothing to do with it. Who wants to buy businesses with nothing else to do except wait for the business to text you with a problem.

  • Vampyre Squirrel

    100% complete (according to rockstar) with GTAV… need this DLC to have more SP stuff in it.
