The Valentine's Day Massacre Special is a content update for Grand Theft Auto Online and Grand Theft Auto V, being the first of 2014 and the second major content update since the Beach Bum content pack. It was made available for free on February 13, 2014, the day before Valentine's Day, as part of Patch 1.10.[1] It was indefinitely re-released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and as GTA Online: Be My Valentine for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC with additional content on February 10, 2016.[2]


It includes multiple 1920s mob-styled content: A new weapon (the Gusenberg Sweeper), a new vehicle (the Albany Roosevelt), multiple items of vintage clothing, a Flapper Bob hairstyle for female characters, a new action in the interaction menu (Blow Kiss), and 10 new jobs.

Unlike the first Beach Bum content update, the items were no longer free and could only be bought with in-game money. The ability to purchase the items in GTA Online ended on the 3rd of March, yet players who obtained them throughout February got to keep the items for good, even after the content update expired.



Multiple Valentine-themed jobs have been added. Among these are:

Character Customization[]

  • Over 50 clothing items and 7 masks have been added.
  • One new female hairstyle was added.


Image Name Description
Gusenberg Sweeper A powerful Thompson-based machine gun, bearing high damage but short range, being particularly useful at short to medium range combat.


Image Name Description
Albany Roosevelt A 1920s classic compact limousine, having moderate speed, heavy handling and high resistance to damage.


  • A new action, Blow Kiss, has been added to the actions menu.
  • The Rat-Loader is now capable of being stored in garages, and could be bought for free in during the time of the original update.[ref?] All of its upgrades were also free.


  • The action name "Blow Kiss" did not appear when in a vehicle; it would just show "< >". However, this glitch has been patched.
  • After The Business Update (Patch 1.13), many of the T-shirts from this update disappeared. Rockstar had quickly fixed the issue.
  • On February 19, 2016, all the re-released content in this update was unintentionally removed again due to a bug. The removed content was re-added on February 20, 2016.
