Popular GTA Twitter user Tez2 tweeted about these events in detail, revealing that this event is super easy to both start and complete. 

This is a random event that can be started by following these simple steps:

  • Log in to the game and stay in the game for at least twenty minutes.
  • Ensure it is between 8 PM and 6 AM in-game time. 
  • Make sure you are within 400 meters of the Weazel Plaza building. 
  • The random event will start once choppers begin flying over Weazel Plaza.
  • Get an Oppressor MK II or a chopper and land on the roof of the building. This will trigger the event. 
  • After landing on the roof, you should see several criminals. Make sure you kill every one of them. 
  • Once defeated, there should be a WM 29 pistol on the ground near one of the dead criminal bodies. 
  • If this is your first time completing the event, you will also be rewarded with $25,000!

The WM 29 pistol is a reference to the gun Bruce Willis used in Die Hard. Players can purchase ammunition for the gun at Ammu-Nation.
