The bustling world of GTA Online just got a whole lot more thrilling with the introduction of the San Andreas Mercenaries update.
In this major summer update, players can now join forces with Charlie Reed and his team of mercenaries in Project Overthrow, a brand new series of missions that will push their skills to the limit. Get ready to embark on daring operations across the sprawling streets, waters, and skies of southern San Andreas.
Charlie Reed and the Mercenaries
As a seasoned hangar mechanic and ex-military expert, Charlie Reed will lead you through a series of high-altitude guerrilla ops and heists. The San Andreas Mercenaries update features six intense missions designed to test your abilities as a mercenary. From scouting missions and equipment recovery to daring rescues and head-on clashes with Merryweather Security, you’ll need to be at the top of your game to succeed.
Starting Project Overthrow
To begin your journey in Project Overthrow, head to the new operations terminal in the Mammoth Avenger, available for purchase from Warstock Cache & Carry. As a member of the Los Santos Angels, you’ll also have the opportunity to take on three new private assignments known as the Los Santos Angels Operations.
Completing each mission for the first time will reward you with a unique outfit, and as you replay the missions, additional optional bonus objectives will provide extra payouts.
