The Contract is a content update for Grand Theft Auto Online, released on December 15, 2021.

Description

Introducing The Contract, a New GTA Online Story Featuring Franklin Clinton and Friends. Get Ready for a New Adventure with Dr. Dre, Plus New Music, and Much More Coming December 15.

Rockstar Newswire.

In the years since he and his accomplices knocked over the Union Depository, renowned Los Santos hustler Franklin Clinton has been making moves of his own.
Welcome to F. Clinton and Partner, a new “celebrity solutions agency” catering to the Vinewood elite in need of solutions to high-society problems.
Franklin needs two things: a reliable partner and a big-ticket, high-profile client. With your longtime LS contact — and newly aspiring cannabis entrepreneur — Lamar Davis making the connection, you can be the partner that helps Franklin take the business to the next level.
Meanwhile on the other side of the city, DJ Pooh has been reaching out to Franklin about an exciting potential client: his close friend, Dr. Dre.
Lost in the shuffle on his way to Cayo Perico last year, it turns out Dr. Dre’s phone isn’t just missing — it’s in the wrong hands. Not only that, but the phone also contains the hottest property in the city: new, unreleased music from Dr. Dre himself. This could be the big break your agency needs.
Get ready for a wild and hilarious ride through Los Santos, from the mean streets of Franklin’s old neighborhood to the hottest parties in the city, from debaucherous mansions to the offices of the FIB and everywhere in between as you join Franklin, expert hacker Imani, Chop the Dog, and crew to secure Dr. Dre’s precious tracks and return them to their rightful owner.

Jobs

Security Contracts

Main article: Security Contracts
F. Clinton & Partner is new to the scene, and you’ll need to pick up Security Contracts for clients in need to gain experience and credibility. Recover valuables and vehicles, conduct daring rescue operations, defend high-value assets, and more.

— Rockstar Newswire.

A series of Free Mode jobs given by Franklin Clinton for the high-value clients of F. Clinton and Partner.

The Dr. Dre VIP Contract

Main article: The Contract: Dr. Dre
On the streets of Los Santos, Dr. Dre’s stolen phone is the talk of the town — word is the device is loaded with never-before-heard music from Dr. Dre’s as-yet unreleased work, which you’ll need to track down before it leaks to the world. This could make or break your Agency, and you’ll be the one getting your hands dirty.
The main job requiring the retrieval of the A-List customer, Dr. Dre's phone. As you make headway with the investigation, you’ll discover new songs from the six-time Grammy Award-winning hip-hop legend, all premiering exclusively within this massive update to GTA Online.

The main job requiring the investigation of leads and hints for the retrieval of the A-List customer, Dr. Dre's phone.

Payphone Hits

Main article: Payphone Hits
After completing a few Security Contracts, Franklin will reveal the Agency’s dirtier work in Payphone Hits — off-the-books, street-level assassinations with bonuses paid out for following specific instructions. These assignments demand a low-profile — you’ll pick up the details by answering payphones around Los Santos.

— Rockstar Newswire.

Franklin now facilitates assassinations and stock manipulation for clients much like Lester's Assassinations in Grand Theft Auto V, except the player now performs the assassinations and is paid a flat fee rather than using the stock market themselves. Fees paid include bonuses if the assassination is completed in the prescribed manner, but the player is free to kill the target however they please.

Prepare for an out-of-body experience... Play as Franklin and Lamar in Short Trips — new co-op story missions available once you complete GTA Online: The Contract.

Double Down — a new cooperative Adversary Mode where you can play as Franklin and Lamar surviving a brutal onslaught in close confines — is available to play now in GTA Online. Work together and use the arsenal of weapons at your fingertips to dispose of the attackers blasting at you with Double Barrel Shotguns. Then, flip the switch and try your hand at attacking the duo as they desperately defend their turf.

A new Siege Mentality-like Adversary Mode featuring Franklin and Lamar as playable characters, Double Down, was added during the Double Down Week event, with seven maps:

Trivia

  • The update's main visual design is a nod to Dr. Dre himself, as evidenced by "THE CONTRACT" typeface on the logo with several decals, which are similar to the design on the cover of The Chronic, Dre's debut studio album in 1992.
    • The update's unusual date of 15th December, which is Wednesday, whereas the GTA Online updates usually release on Tuesdays, is also a nod to The Chronic, because of the album's 29th anniversary.
  • The song used in the announcement trailer for the update is "ETA" by Dr. Dre, feat. Snoop Dogg, Busta Rhymes, and Anderson .Paak.
  • The song used in the second trailer for the update is "Black Privilege" by Dr. Dre.
TheContract-GTAOe-Underline.png

Bugs

  • Currently a common bug is that players may be stuck in an extremely long load screen when entering their Agency building. The loading times are not infinite but can take well over 20 minutes.
  • The Devin Weston hangar at LSIA has an unusually inconsistent glitch where some sessions will prevent access due to an invisible barrier; this glitch doesn't apply to everyone in the lobby, as some players are able to drive through the hangar while others may not.
    • This glitch could be a result of the new closed-hangar state which happens during Don't Fuck With Dre at the same location.
