Smash, bash, and dodge the competition in the new Sumo Adversary Mode that has you working (either alone or in teams) to force the opposition out of the designated arena. Whether it's size, speed, or control, choose a vehicle that suits your style, and be the last team remaining in the arena before the clock runs out to win.
Rockstar Newswire description.

Sumo[1] is an Adversary Mode featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Lowriders: Custom Classics update, released on March 15, 2016.


Players, using a car previously chosen, must remain in designated area for three minutes while trying to shove the competition out the same area.

Handbrakes are disabled for this Adversary Mode. Round ends once all players from the opposing team are Knocked Out.

If there are still players from different teams after the given time, a sudden death round will be activated. In this phase, participants must stay within an area called Sudden Death Zone, represented by a dome (similar to Penned In); if a player leaves the area, he will be eliminated. The last team standing wins the round.

The game may be based on a series of unofficial activities performed by players in the GTA IV Multiplayer.[2]


The following is a list of available vehicles in this Adversary Mode:


There are six Sumo missions in GTA Online, each taking place in a different location, which are as follows:

Sumo VI takes place on the roof of Sightings Bar & Restaurant, New Empire Way, Los Santos International Airport.



  • On rare occasions, players can spawn outside the arena. If at the island location, the player will spawn in the water, blow up, then respawn on the beach without a vehicle. The player is not considered knocked out unless they walk/run into the water. At the other locations, the player will spawn on the road below the arena.
