Independence Day DLC items permanent after purchase?

I need to know if the Independence day items are limited to use, or will be available permanently.

You will be able to use any Fireworks or Firework Launcher ammo still in your Inventory after the expiration date, but you will not be able to purchase any additional Fireworks or Firework Launcher ammo after that date. The Firework Launcher will remain in your Inventory but you will not be able to select it once you have run out of ammo.

All other items purchased during the DLC will remain available on your character.

If they are permanent, then I'm getting me an eagle mask, musket, and firework launcher to love every day.

@ExoticIsle</a> You will keep the items you've purchased during the limited time of the Independence Day DLC.

So are you saying I just spent 20k on masks I can only use DURING the limited time? Oh god no... What have I done...

You'll be able to show off your masks permanently! No worries ;)

Oh thank God... I actually dropped 200k on masks looking at it now. So this is more like the Valentine DLC than the Christmas?
Whereas Christmas disappeared and Valentines stayed.

Anything you purchase now like the masks, guns and clothing items after the limited time is up then you get to keep them anything that you don't purchase during the limited time then they will be gone

When the limited time is over you will no longer be able to buy fireworks for your 60k firework launcher

Oh dang... I was really looking forward to being able to still use that... Should have been free then in my opinion.

You'll be able to keep it until your fireworks are all used.

What if you can't get online to get anything before the deadline can't you make it for the whole of July? I can't get online for 15 days because I'm stuck at work away from home :( so does that mean I won't be able to buy anything from this dlc? :(

Let us continue to buy ammo! Or at least let us get the ammo from in-game mission lobbies.

This rocket is the best thing to happen to GTA after snow and they both get removed.

@cattafett</a> so can i get a refund as it was mis-sold <br>
60k for a rental is not cool

Yeah this sucks. I knew the firework displays were a limited time thing but I didn't know the launcher would be taken away. What a waste of $60,000. Rockstar stop ripping us off

Make it permanent. I bought 2 and 2 tints before I found this out. Thanks also for making tints so expensive on a temporary purchase.

@Brian B With the exception of the Fireworks and the Firework Launcher, anything you purchase will remain in your inventory after the expiration date. The expiration date will be posted on the <a href="http://www.rockstargames.com/newswire" rel="nofollow">newswire</a> as soon as it is available.

So then when someone inevitably purchases a shark card to get the launcher and then you take it away, you are essentially stealing $1.20 from them not including any ammo or fireworks cost!!!

So the Fireworks Rocket Launcher costs ~60K and it will be removed/no longer to buy ammo for it after the this DLC period? Does that mean I will be getting a full refund for the launcher? The money spent on it was money I spent in really life (Kash Kurds) and if that is the case then you, Rockstar, owe me my money back.

You guys please, this is not a post to reprimand Rockstar Games for giving us new content. I spent 300k on the masks and guns, I'm broke, but honestly, it's all cool with me. I can do survivals with randoms, maybe make friends, earn my 60k back in no time. I just got 30k on a survival, I was sure it's 20. Happy day to me I guess.

Slow sarcastic round of applause for .
You know people are going to be hacking fireworks into their minigun long after they remove the fireworks for the players who dont hack their game.
You gave us snow - Then took it away, Suddenly people start hosting snow lobbies.
You realllllly think people will just forget about shooting fireworks at people,

Also, to charge us for an items we can only use for a limited time without forewarning us is a scam,

I agree with that, I would love to have the firework launcher at all times for signal flares of patriotic passive fun.

Fireworks Launcher.....the first RENTAL gun to be added to GTA Online. Such a disappointment, such a waste of money.
