Hold on to the briefcase for as long as possible.
— Mission description.

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


Grab the briefcase and go! Jump into a car, bike, boat, motorcycle, P-996 Lazer or just run for the hills with the coveted contraband in hand. Be one of the three players who hold the briefcase the longest to score GTA$ and RP bonuses.

Hot Property mode is a competitive mode where players battle to hold a hot-property briefcase Blips-GTAO-HotProperty-Briefcase.png for the longest time. The event will last for ten minutes and players aim to hold onto the briefcase for the longest time.

Once the briefcase has been collected, the timer will begin to count up and everyone is informed that a player has collected the briefcase. If the player holding the briefcase dies, they will drop it and their timer will pause, but will resume once the same player acquires the briefcase again.


  • The briefcase will not be held when aboard the player's personal Yacht[1], or if in a vehicle that can travel underwater, such as the Kraken or Submersible[2], to prevent the player from cheating. Strangely, the Stromberg is an exception.
  • The holder cannot use the Lester's "Off Radar" feature, "Ghost Organization" while in an organization/MC or the stealth feature on the Akula to hide the briefcase from others. However, the briefcase icon will override a vehicle's icon, making players unaware what kind of vehicle they are using unless making visual contact with the briefcase holder.
