Requiring improvement: Second and third person rewards

Whet your appetite for destruction with an all-you-can-eat buffet. Get strapped with a favorite piece of heavy artillery and let loose over a given time period with no wanted level in sight. Wanton destruction is rewarded with every bullet hole and blast. The player with the largest property damage bill who causes the most destruction will win.
— Description.

Criminal Damage is a Freemode Event featured in Grand Theft Auto Online, added as part of the Freemode Events Update.


It's time to rack up some apocalyptic property damage to earn yourself a generous cash and RP bonus. Keep in mind that the more expensive the stuff you wreck, the higher the score, so head on over to The Vinewood Hills, Richman, and Rockford Hills and do Trevor Philips proud by going on your wildest rampage.
Rockstar Newswire Description

Like other Freemode Events in GTA Online, the players in the current session will be notified that Criminal Damage will begin soon. A 3 minute countdown period will begin.

Once begun, the objective is fairly simple: cause the most damage, by racking up the destruction costs. The top 3 players who've caused the most costly damage will be listed in the Gold, Silver, Bronze leaderboard located at the bottom right of the HUD.

Players have 5 minutes to cause destruction. During Criminal Damage, police will not respond to any crimes committed, however existing wanted levels will not be removed once the mode starts.

Vehicle Values

The value at which each vehicle is worth when destroyed is the same as the price of the vehicle. However, the following is a list of all non-purchasable vehicles and their values during this mission:

Some vehicles' values are different from their price on websites purchasable:

Originally, some of the most expensive vehicles which can spawn naturally had values as their purchasable price, however as part of the Smuggler's Run update[1], these vehicles are all capped at $750,000.[1]

To prevent the player from using extremely expensive DLC vehicles to boost their score, the game does not permit many DLC vehicles, such as the Luxor Deluxe, Ruiner 2000, Ramp Buggy, Oppressor and Phantom Wedge, whose prices are extremely high. Some original vehicles, such as the Rhino Tank also do not count.
