Tiny Racers is one of GTA Online‘s many adversary modes, added into the game as part of the Cunning Stunts: Special Vehicle Circuit update in April of 2017.
This particular game mode brings back the bird’s eye view of classic Grand Theft Auto, with all the chaos of GTA 5 races you know and love. But fall too far behind and your car will combust. This guide will walk you through getting this type of race up and running.
To begin, pause the game and scroll over to the Online tab, then choose Play Job. Select Rockstar Created, then Adversary Mode to reveal a long list of game modes to play from. This list is ordered alphabetically, so scroll down to the T’s to find Tiny Racers. There will be seven in total to choose from.
These seven races are detailed here, so choose whichever one seems most interesting to you. Each will required two to four players to start, and all take place on floating raceways above Los Santos:
Simply select whichever race you think sounds the most fun and confirm that you want to start that job. You will be put into a lobby and once you have enough players for the race to begin, you’ll be put onto the track.
Now, the objective isn’t to beat the other players to the finish line. Instead, you want to be the last man standing by destroying all of the other racers.
You can make use of powerups spread out through the course, similar to kart racing games, to kill your opponents. Alternatively, you can get someone to fall so far behind the leader that they get automatically blown up as a result. Don’t let that be you, though.
There are seven powerups in Tiny Racers:
Being the last man standing will net you a single point, and the tracker in the bottom right will show you how many points are needed to win.
This is certainly one of GTA 5‘s most unique game modes, and offers triple cash and RP at the time of writing this. While this mode isn’t going anywhere, it’s definitely worth playing ASAP anyway. Check out our other GTA 5 guides here on GameSkinny.
