V-Day 2023


The season of Cupid is once again in full swing. Eagle-eyed and mischief-loving, we heard he stalks San Paro with a bow and arrow, fully intending to wreak havoc. Legend says that anyone struck by Cupid's arrow falls madly in love with the next person they see. Even if we don't have hordes of lovestruck, confused vigilantes running amok, we reckon an epidemic of arrow wounds is almost as bad. We got a beef with Cupid and his army of lovebugs, and we raise hot lead to his quiver and bow. Whether you're partnered up or forever alone, we make no difference. It's time to show this cranky baby what for! And why not earn some sweet treats in the process?

Love is in the air, but we are ready for it! From February 8th through February 22th, we are coming together to bring it down.

2023 Valentine's Day Activities: Seeking Love

Cupid doesn't make things easy, but we've got your back by keeping the goods flowing through daily in-game activities. All you need to do is complete three missions for "Seeking Love" in a single day, and you'll earn rewards! You'll get a new set of different items every time you meet this objective. Do this four days in a row, and you'll earn all of the following:

  • Day 1 = Title: "Heartseeker"; 5 Valentine's Gift Boxes
  • Day 2 = Title: "The Hearty One"; 5 Valentine's Gift Boxes
  • Day 3 = Title: "Sweetheart"; 5 Valentine's Gift Boxes
  • Day 4 = Title: "A Perfect Match"; Unlock: Valentine's Quiver Backpack; 5 Valentine's Gift Boxes

Want more goods? Let's arrange a little something.

Every time you finish a mission, you'll have a chance to receive an additional pack of 2-5 Valentine's Gift Boxes!

Valentine’s Week Massacre

The second way you can progress is by racking up kills with the following primary weapons:

  • STAR 556 'Love-Gun' - Gifted on login (please check your in-game mail after the V-Day Patch on 2/8)
  • Colby M-1922 'Chopper' - Level 4 reward of the 'Valentine's Week Massacre' role
  • Joker SR15 'Casanova' - Available through ARMAS & Valentine's Gift Boxes
  • Obeya CR762 'Heartbreaker' - Available through ARMAS & Valentine's Gift Boxes
  • Colby CSG-20 'Speed-Dater' - Available through ARMAS & Valentine’s Gift Boxes
  • N-HVR 243 'Cupid's Arrow' - Available through ARMAS & Valentine’s Gift Boxes
  • STAR 556 'Love-Gun' R&D III - Available through ARMAS & Valentine’s Gift Boxes
  • Colby M-1922 'Big Chopper' - Available through ARMAS & Valentine’s Gift Boxes

All is fair in love and war. Laying your love to rest will advance your "Valentine's Week Massacre" role and grant you the following:

  • 50 Kills = Death Theme: Romance
  • 150 Kills = Clothing: Love Heart Glasses
  • 300 Kills = Death Theme: Pizza Guy
  • 500 Kills = Colby M-1922 'Chopper' (10-Day Lease); Clothing: Pink Police Hat; Unlock: STAR 556 'Love-Gun'
  • 750 Kills = Title: “Casanova;” Valentine's Weapon Skin

Snubbed Love

Still Hungry for more? Well. If you insist.

The third way you can progress is by giving Cupid a taste of his medicine and racking up kills with the Colby SNR 850 'Cherub' secondary weapon. This weapon is gifted on login, so check your in-game mail after the Valentine's Event patch.

Working on the "Snubby Love" role will grant you the following:

  • 25 Kills = Unlock: Ophelia - Blond Decal
  • 75 Kills = Enforcers: Prentiss Tigers "Violet Valentine" Symbol; Criminals: Bloodroses "Rose-Heart" Symbol
  • 150 Kills = Unlock: Ophelia - Redhead Decal
  • 250 Kills = Unlock: Colby SNR 850 'Cherub'
  • 375 Kills = Title: “Cherub Chaser”

The word spread and some faction contacts have joined the cause and want everyone to know it. You can find them wearing festive clothing in the Social and Financial Districts.

Additionally, for a limited time during the event, the STAR 556 'LCR' "Old Glory" has reappeared for sale in ARMAS. Don't miss it! Loved by Enforcers and Criminals alike, the STAR 556 'LCR' is a throwback to the old STAR from days of old. The STAR 'LCR,' or "Low Cyclic Rate,' fires its ammunition slower but at a longer effective range. This variant comes outfitted with Hunting Sight 3, Cooling Jacket 2, and a Mobility Sling for extra stopping power at range. It's the weapon of choice for any Cupid hunter out there.

Clear your schedules, reload your guns, and join us in San Paro on February 8th!

And bring some heart into it ;)
