Arena War are a series of modes featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Arena War update.


Although the Arena War modes are essentially Adversary Modes and the concept of player/team versus another player/team is the same, they are labeled as their own series, similar to the bunker-based modes.

These modes contribute to the player's Arena War Career path, by earning Arena Points (once they own an Arena Workshop) and unlocking rewards.


There are various Arena War modes available to play, each one with three different maps that shares the same setups:

  • Map I set the modes into an Apocalypse setup, which have the look of a wasteland, often featuring large bones, wrecked vehicles, and damaged structures.
  • Map II set the modes into a Future Shock setup, which have the look of a futuristic place, with seemingly clean structures and characteristic patterns on roads.
  • Map III set the modes into a Nightmare setup, which follows a rather colorful ambience and food-themed structures around, including large cans, doughnuts, and bottles.
