Weazel Plaza Shootout is part of the random events added to GTA Online with the Christmas Update 2023. Here’s how to start the Weazel Plaza Shootout event and unlock the WM29 Pistol in GTA Online.
How to Start the Weazel Plaza Shootout in GTA Online
To start the Weazel Plaza Shootout in the GTA Online Christmas Update 2023, you need to hop in a GTA Online session and get to the Weazel Plaza. But there are certain requirements you need to complete before the shootout appears for you. These are:
- Your in-game time must be between 8 PM and 6 AM for the shootout to begin.
- You need to be within 400 meters of the plaza.
- You must be in a GTA Online public session.
Once you meet these basic requirements, the random event will begin. You will see a shootout taking place between cops and robbers at the top of the Weazel Plaza.
How to Unlock WM 29 Pistol in GTA Online
To complete the event and unlock the WM 29 Pistol, you need to defeat all of the armed robbers at the top of the plaza. To do that, you will need to get to the top using a flying vehicle like a helicopter or the Oppressor Mk II.
Once you get to the top, eliminate all the robbers and land on the roof to pick up the WM 29 pistol dropped by the robbers. However, you will then have the cops shooting at you. Get rid of the wanted level after defeating all of the enemies.
That is all you need to know to complete the Weazel Plaza Shootout. If you are struggling to start the event, you can join another session and make sure you are completing all of the basic requirements. Another thing you can do is to stand on the ground while waiting for the event to appear instead of flying to the top before the event begins for you.
