"Nothing says “I love you” quite like the warm wooden grip and cold steel barrel of a Gusenberg Sweeper machine gun," Rockstar said of the Valentine's Day special. "Get it from any Ammu-Nation location in GTA Online."
The new vehicle is called an Albany Roosevelt meanwhile, an armour-plated limousine with room for crewmates to hang off the side, and as for the 10 new Jobs there will be fresh deathmatches, parachute jumps and land, sea and cycling races.
