Unlock New Skull Masks at the Halloween Special Max Payne 3 Social Club Multiplayer Event - Plus Triple XP All Weekend

Posted on October 25 2012, 3:20pm | Author: R* K | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Update: The event has ended, but Triple XP is live all weekend long for all platforms worldwide. The Day of the Dead Skull should be unlocked for all members of Founder Crews right now. If you are a member of a Founder Crew and do not see this in your Loadouts please email us at mouthoff@rockstargames.com with the link to your Crew’s profile. We're still working on getting everyone who joined the Social Club Event Playlist the Demonic Skull. You should all receive them by tomorrow morning. Look for more skull mask unlock opportunities in the future.

Join us Friday October 26th from 4-7pm ET / 9pm-midnight BST, for a special Halloween edition of the Social Club Multiplayer Events series where you can unlock a freaky all-new Demonic Skull head item for Max Payne 3 Multiplayer in keeping with the spirit of the season. We'll be playing on Xbox LIVE; however, players across all three platforms will be able to join their respective Social Club Multiplayer Event Playlists in-game to unlock the Demonic Skull as seen above. TRIPLE XP will also be live on all three platforms, right through the weekend.

In addition to the Demonic Skull, we're also unlocking the Day of the Dead Skull as a special bonus exclusive to all members of our veterano Founder Crews. If you have a Founder Crew as your Active Crew, or you have played at least one full game in the 26th October Social Club Playlist, check out the Head Items section of your Multiplayer Loadouts after 4pm to access the Skulls (you may need to exit to the main menu of Max Payne 3 and then return to Multiplayer in order to see them). Skulls do not award any bonus abilities, but they do look awesome!

We'll have four of our most lethal dev players tearing it up with you across various game modes, double live stream, Rockstar-hosted chat and a sweepstakes to win Max Payne 3 Prize Packs over at the Social Club Multiplayer Events page, plus a bonus stream over on the Rockstar Twitch channel. At some point during the event, our four Rockstar devs will Crew up to take on challengers - so look out for that in the chat and ready your Crew to try and take them on, just like Broken Whiskey Bottles, Shinobi, Elite Gamer Crew, Ice Cold Assassins and The VII7s have done recently. Be sure to check back in to the Multiplayer Events Page to see if you made the top 200 on the Event Leaderboards.

The full event details, including who to look for and how to participate are laid out below...

Participating official in-game Rockstar names will be:

  • MaxPayneDev1
  • MaxPayneDev2
  • MaxPayneDev3
  • MaxPayneDev4

Enter to win a Max Payne 3 prize pack on the events page, including a Max Payne 3 t-shirt, bullet keychain and stickers. Five winners will be randomly selected. Official rules are available in several languages.

If you're unsure of when the event will begin in your time zone, have a look at the countdown on the Social Club multiplayer events page.

When the event starts up on Friday, enter Max Payne 3 multiplayer and select the Social Club Multiplayer Event playlist. We'll play a mix of Soft Lock and Free Aim, so look for the names listed above. Please note that the playlist will be visible on all platforms, but on this occasion our devs will only be playing on Xbox LIVE.

If you want more time to play our games with us, your best bet is to follow us at our official Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Steam pages so you can get the word when we're going online for some impromptu multiplayer...

    I am not looking to join a crew, I am recruiting. I am the Godfather of the Grown Man Clan Crew. I am looking for new recruits to bring in. We are all about having fun while we complete some objectives. How about we get some nice cars, make a few extra bucks and have some fun with rival crews. We all have real lives so I don’t expect everyone to be on all of the time but if you’re in my crew and you happen to be on playing than that is an opportunity to roll with us. By the way, if you plan on being part of this....speak properly. In other words, I'm not your homie or nig-- Get my drift, understand? If you don't speak properly because of a language barrier that's ok but if you speak English but can't put a sentence together don't bother joining my crew.

          R*, WHEN is this getting fixed? Some players cannot select avatars and as a result are INVISIBLE. You update the game with new DLC, but don't fix outstanding bugs? This has been a problem since the 'Disorganized Crime' update.

          Fix? Maybe?
          • R* Yon November 12 2012, 3:45pmReplyFlag
            @Citizen-88 Brand new title update is going to be released soon. We'll post news with a list of fixes when it's live worldwide.

          Max Payne 3 multiplayer needs a patch A.S.A.P. it gets worse everyday if this is what GTA V is gonna be like I will save my money. Shame on you rockstar for not caring about hardcore fanbase and shame on for putting out DLC with no patch...........c'mon son you know what's happening on here fix it !!

            @RKOBULLY You can expect a brand new title update to be released this month. It will have fixes for several issues.

          Today the 4th of Nov is a bad day for running into horde's of invisible players in Max Payne 3 WOW one game had over 4 invisible players in it. I guess I'm done with Max Payne 3 till its fixed I'm going back to resident evil 6 and other games that work!!!

            yes please fix the invisible player problem . it makes now fun now to play the game

              no man, yesterday i was playign for around 4,5 hours i didnt found it once, today i found it once olny, wth? we should be able to choose maps rather than being forced to, this is coercion, just to force people to buy new dlcs, they shoudnt do this. we have bought rockstar pass so we deserve choice, the whole multiplayer experience in maxpayne 3 is becoming so s**tty, glitches, games being stuck in the middle, network probs etc. wht man, i never played a game with so many problems and so less choice to choose maps in multiplayer mode.
          • NaenaeBoyon November 3 2012, 7:59pmReplyFlag
            When are you going to fix the f**ken invisable glitch. Its becoming a plague. Theres's at least one person per game doing it down and there'll all low ranks coming on for a couple of games and f**king everything up.

            You'll pro block this post and say its off topic but you never reply to emails.

            Sort this out I'm so sick of this s**t happening. I reckon you owe me 15-20k in xp from all the mother f**kers that keep killing when when I can see them.

            Branco is still there open your eyes. I was just playing it before

              @NaenaeBoy You think invisible players are bad? think again! Metal Gear Online 2 was impossible everyone was nearly invincible,they glitched 50% of the time, they team killed,Connection Not Stable, etc... so before you start getting your AGGRO meter full think about other games first Max Payne 3 is by far the best game ever,

              @.Duke.Nukem. I never played those games so why would I care or even compare MP3 to those games?? Compare this game to Red Dead which was amazing with not glitches to MP3 which are made by the same bloody people. LA Noire sucked arse aswell.

              @NaenaeBoy Save your bit(hing for the grocery check out line boy. R* you guys are all solid, your games are all amazing and I "fans" are. They should be grateful for all of the fan support you offer, such as these amazing intimidation skull masks, or free DLC. I will be there and I will buy your product because I always know one thing, with R* , "You get what you pay for."

              @GOLDENBOY1911 Sorry, the sentence jumbled up when I posted.

              and I don't have a single complaint. Rome wasn't built in a day. These disrespectful and obnoxious "fans" need to stop their trolling.

              @GOLDENBOY1911 Haha r* pray on little ---es like you who just bend over and take anything because you love them so much. Max Payne 3 and LA noire are pretty lame games. No doubt becasue they are putting most of there time and energy into GTA 5 whch is fair enough and look amazing but why dont they just come out and say it.

              Red Dead is an amazing game and I'm sure GTA 5 will be.

            i have a complaint to Rock Star, max payen 3 was a great game fo rmulti player but not anymore, you gusy have removed Branco head Quarters Map, i have been trying to find it since the new dlc came out but its not there any more, u guys just fukd it up, now all is left are s**tty maps with alot of errors adn very little option to choose from, that is not fair, we shoudl get to choose whihc maps we want to play rather than being forced to random ones, you guys just want to force ppl to but new dlcs by removing the popular maps. booo

            Stats glitched / reset AGAIN!

            Anyone else had this AND / OR had their stats fixed since the rest almost a MONTH ago?

            Support tickets don't get answered. What to do?

              @Citizen-88 Mine just got fixed, but all my grinds, avatars and titles are lost. More CPU for me I guess. I was able to get a response by using the mouth off to rockstar email. Good luck and sorry to hear it

                Yep, no DLC, just checked the Playstation Store again. Third DLC in a row (every MP3 DLC, that is) to be given a release date, then miss it. WTF, guys?! Is R* just burning every possible bridge to consumers now? IF they release GTA V, it's gonna tank because no one is going to be willing to go through all this sh*t again for another rehash of the same game they've been making for 12 years!

                    @magdaleno9 Yes. However, today I was able to play all afternoon without problems. Is it because it is the night of the dead, or because the thing starts working?

                    I like very much Max Payne 3, only objectively I record a real problem.

                  Wait, R* are you trying to tell us that after all this time and a new Favela Heights map at our disposal we're still not getting a new Gang Wars mission for the Filhos De Ogum? Are you insane?! We've all been counting on a new Gang Wars since Disorganized Crime was released, WTF?! Now, I'm not sure about all that, but I've been gaming all afternoon and no Favela Heights map ever showed-up in the Gang Wars, so is there one or not - this would be such a wasted opportunity...

                  Also, with the next DLC we're gonna NEED at least 2 more custom loadout slots, to say nothing of mmore single-hand weapons!

                    @MONSTRO1988 We're hoping to have another Gang Wars map coming up in one of the next packs. In the meantime, we hope you're enjoying the ones that are already present in the game, as well as all the new maps, modes, weapons and other items in all the other DLC packs.
