Recap with Leaderboard & Video: August 1st's Max Payne 3 PSN Social Club Multiplayer Event

Posted on August 13 2012, 11:36am | Author: R* K | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Wednesday, August 1st, our crack quartet of Rockstar devs took to PSN to exchange lead on PSN in Max Payne 3 multiplayer. We fought for three furious hours against some of the best players in the Social Club community many of whom stood toe to toe at the top of the event leaderboards with MaxPayneDev3 and MaxPayneDev2 finishing seventh and ninth respectively but bested by several elite players.

The event started with our two live-stream players, MaxPayneDev1 and MaxPayneDev2, paired together on the same team for a Gang Wars in the favelas of Nova Esparanҫa. Our devs got off to a difficult start, their team losing the first two rounds and coming up against another deadly duo in matthew700 and Kara-Kartal38. But they rallied their team and took the next round of 'Passage', with Dev2 activating a timely Level 3 Sneaky Burst to mop up all enemies surrounding the checkpoints while teammate smittie224 (of the Pyschopathic Rydaz Crew) worked tirelessly to capture them. It all came down to 'Survivor' and both teams fought a good match that came down to seven against one, with Dev1 playing the part of the mouse against seven hungry UFE cats. Our dev was picked off quickly by new nemesis, Kara-Kartal38 (PSN ID).

While MaxPayneDev4 was taking on all comers in Free Aim and Hardcore playlists, Dev1 and Dev2 headed into Docks, this time teaming up with with Kara-Kartal38, who finished with enviable stats of 36 kills and 14 deaths. As you might imagine, the trio lead their team to a comprehensive win.

As the event continued, our dev players separated to try and make their presence known in as many game modes as possible and Dev3 racked up the most impressive score with 69 kills for 28 deaths in Team Deathmatch, using a preferred Loadout of MD-97L, 608 Bull, Sawn-off and Sneaky Burst; and Items Quick Holster, Autoinjector and Sneakers.

For the final match, as has become customary in our Max Payne 3 Social Club Multiplayer Events, our four dev players Crewed up and equipped their game faces for a final Gang Wars in the Favelas. It began with a round of 'Last Man Standing' and Dev2 quickly fell to a headshot from dondormeo (PSN ID). It came down to Dev4 and Combe209 - with senses clearly sharpened from playing Hardcore mode earlier, Dev4 broke from cover to dispatch the opponent with a volley of shotgun shells. The next two rounds saw our devs comfortably win in 'Turf Grab' and 'Passage', and then it took Dev3 all of a minute to plant the bomb on the train tracks and send the team into 'Survivor' with a clean sweep of wins. They finished the match on top with Dev1 taking out bdkrevenge (PSN ID) for the final kill.

Extra special gratitude goes out to YouTube user and Social Club Multiplayer Event regular, ShenmueSaga, who once again captured the action and whose video you can see above. Cheers to everyone listed below who joined us and make sure you check back in on the multiplayer events page for several more action-packed dates this month - including sessions for Max Payne 3 and Grand Theft Auto IV (including the Episodes modes). Also expect the brand new fall calendar of events to be announced later this month.

Finally, the Grand Prize for this event included a Limited Edition Max Payne statue, Hawaiian shirt, bullet keychain and stickers - congrats to our lucky winner dingus76. Runners-up N9ne0sBaby, Mattx0x, sensationstation, Shockwave9 and treedee71 will receive a t-shirt, bullet keychain and stickers.

            XP VI -- Earn 100,000,000 XP as a Crew in online multiplayer game modes.

            Rockstar should make an all platform leaderboard. we would be #1. Im pretty sure we are the first crew that unlocked this accomplishment! Because we are topcrew on both ps3 & 360.

            We are still looking for dedicated members, Smokers only!

                    @ Hello this is something you might look into. The sniping in the game is way to easy if you are looking at the enemy like in team deathmatch as soon as you scope in your crosshairs is already dead target on or only a few inches. From target . So you can do a quick scope and get a kill without even scoping all the way in.

                  Today's my birthday. Getting a certain email from Rockstar would make a helluva b-day gift. :-P Seems to be a slow news week here on the Newswire. Waiting to find out who the final 2 faces are getting put in the game... waiting for a release date and info on Disorganized Crime, and waiting for more info on the Payne Thresholds.

                  Not being impatient here or demanding information... just an observation. Looking forward to whenever this stuff is revealed.

                  EDIT: I posted this exact post on another thread further in the Newswire. Meant to post it here. Must be tired as it.s 4:30 AM here

                    As you can see, we've since had some more news this week with some original Rockstar digital designs, a behind-the-scenes piece on Max Payne 3 plus we've got a multiplayer event at the end of the week. Stay tuned and cheers.

                    @ Thanks :-) I keep up with the Newswire pretty much daily. Really enjoying Max Payne 3. The multiplayer is the most fun I've ever had in any multiplayer game. Brilliantly done. Can't wait to see what you have in store for us for the rest of the DLC and future projects like GTA V.

                  i know you guys don't preannounce things but i really wanted to ask will you guys have a zombie DLC in the future i would love that and i'm sure others would love it too just think about it, blowing zombies heads off in bullet time diving in the air making some epic zombie kills. It would be awesome
