"It's time to hold your ground. Mark as much territory as you can, and try to stop other teams from marking over it. The team with the most turf at the end of a time limit gets a point towards the target total."
―In-game description.

Turf Wars[1] is an Adversary Mode featured in Grand Theft Auto Online as part of the Import/Export update, released on December 13, 2016.


"Two to four teams strap themselves into a range of speedy vehicles and compete to control tiles. Drive over each tile to claim it with your team’s color while defending your turf from your foes, all while picking up strategically-located rockets in this new vehicular-themed Adversary Mode."
Rockstar Newswire description.
The mode consists of a match where two to four teams use sports cars to drive over tiles to claim them with the corresponding color. A team can overtake the rival team's tiles by simply driving over these, but the rival team can do the same to them. On the upper side of the screen, there is a HUD that represents the timer and the points, while the circle represents the general percentage of the territory claimed by the team. If al least two opposing players are on the same tile at the same time, it turns red, which indicates it is contested. Black tiles cannot be contested.

Every minute, the tiles are reset and the point is given to the team who has the most tiles taken (which is also represented by the timer, as it turns in the team's color to tell which one has the highest percentage of the map). The team who scores the required points is the winner of the match.

Scattered around the map are powerups that can be used to an advantage, such as missiles. Note that whatever sports car the host chooses, it is the same for all.
