Doubleheader Social Club Multiplayer Event with Triple XP in Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3 (November 16, 11am-5pm ET)

Posted on November 15 2012, 12:41pm | Author: R* K | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Update: The Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3 multiplayer events have ended, but Triple XP is live all weekend. Keep in mind that the top 100 players per platform in the Max Payne 3 event will each receive the new skull mask, and it will become available 24 hours from the time the event ended Friday. More opportunities to get the skull masks are coming in the future!

All day Friday, we're serving up a double helping bounty of Social Club multiplayer events, including a Max Payne 3 finale added on to our originally scheduled Red Dead session as a make up for the event we postponed due to Hurricane Sandy a couple weeks back. It all begins Friday November 16th when we activate Triple XP for both Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3. We'll be kicking off with Red Dead on PS3 and Xbox 360 from 11am-2pm EST / 4-7pm GMT, and then continue on with Max Payne 3 on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 from 2-5pm EST / 7-10pm GMT.

Land Grab, Stronghold, Gang Matches, Undead Overrun and other matches can be expected in Red Dead, and for Max Payne 3 we'll be throwing down in the new maps from the recently released Hostage Negotiation Pack as well as other DLC and of course maps and modes from the original game release as well.

Following the recent Max Payne 3 Halloween themed multiplayer event when we featured special skull avatar unlocks, Friday we'll be unveiling another one, this time with the Arcane skull mask (pictured above). The top 100 players per platform during Friday's Max Payne 3 multiplayer event will each receive the new skull mask, as determined by the leaderboards on the Social Club Multiplayer Events Page. If you wind up one of those top 100 players, the skull will become available to you as an unlock 24 hours after the multiplayer event finishes. And if you aren't successful - don't worry, there'll be more opportunities to unlock this and other skull masks coming soon.

Join in the community chat on the Social Club Multiplayer Events Page while watching two live streams showing all the action, plus you can enter to win a one of ten total Rockstar prize packs during the event. Each includes a Rockstar t-shirt, Red Dead playing cards or Max Payne 3 bullet keychain and a package of Rockstar logo stickers.

A third video stream will be live on our Twitch page, including a second chatroom in which you can discuss all the event happenings.

Participating official in-game Rockstar IDs will be:

  • RedDeadDev3 (Xbox 360)
  • RedDeadDev4 (PS3)
  • RedDeadDev5 (Xbox 360)
  • RedDeadDev6 (PS3)

Participating official in-game Rockstar IDs will be:

  • MaxPayneDev1 (Xbox 360)
  • MaxPayneDev2 (Xbox 360)
  • MaxPayneDev1 (PS3)
  • MaxPayneDev1 (PC)

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

When the first event starts up Friday, enter Normal difficulty multiplayer. This places you into a public Free Roam lobby. You should be able to run into a Rockstar player this way, but if you want you can send a friend request to one of the above IDs. Their lists might be full as most services only allow a max of 100 friend requests. We recommend partying up and playing with other Social Club members until the point when you're able to join us.

Enter 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.

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...

    The leaderboards for Friday's Max Payne 3 event are now LIVE on the multiplayer events page. The top 100 players should now have access to their masks.

    If you are in the top 100 players, and you are not seeing your mask, make sure you exit multiplayer to the main menu. Then re-enter and check the head items section of your loadouts. If you are still not seeing them, please get in touch with us at and we will be happy to assist. Cheers.

    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.

                  I think they should release a new DLC pack called, Lawbringers and Vagabonds. The pack should include new characters such as, Norman Deek, Agent Archer Fordham, and other mexican army soliders for the players to play as. Plus some new features such as the lasso and stores, plus wild horses for you to tame. Making the stores should be a sinch. Just make it so the players can't lasso or kill the shop keepers. If that doesnt work set the clerks with a semi auto shotgun to kill the players. I hope R* takes my suggetions.

                  @ rockstar. support rockstar send me this for cause social club error in maxpayne 3.
                  the social club I know it's a free service. I think that is why you do not try to solve the problem. it's been 20 days and many users are not classified in event and their stats as mine are all wrong. I do not participate in the next event if the problem is resolved. I wasted 3 hours for nothing. greetings MAX

                    @bigboss2050tm We are aware of this bug and working to have it fixed in an upcoming Title Update. We are investigating a possible workaround solution for you, and will email you directly when we have it confirmed. Cheers.

                  I can finally say that I'm now the owner of a Zebra Donkey in Red Dead Redemption! I've had the game for about 8 Months but its all thanks to that Double/Triple XP at times. Thanks a bunch!

                  Also, I know its impossible now but I really wish RDR had an extra 5 more Legends to make it '10'.

                        Yo R* got some funky stuff happening with my Day Of The Dead Mask! It wasn't unlocked for the longest time then it finally did at the MP event, went on yesterday and it had gone again, replaced by the Arcane one :/

                        Think the Arcane one is the best but would be nice to flick between them!

                        Thanking you

                          @Cartoon_Badman Also, 2 questions about feuds....

                          1. How do you actually start one? Sometimes they start straight away and sometimes they take forever, despite the kills!

                          2. What happens if the a crew has a feud in house? (RSG* Vs RSG* )

                          Thanks again

                          @Cartoon_Badman Hi man, I think it starts when at least 2 person from the same crew put a vendetta on the same team. And the other question, when u got a fued u vs u i think the stats don't move.

                          @PIMPAX Thanks chap, thought that was the case for the in house feuds!

                          Good to know about the feuds, I thought it was something about all members of one crew killing the other crew, be good to get an official word!

                          @Cartoon_Badman Hey rico, don't take my words for 100% sure, i unfortunately ain't working for R*. But if I says something wrong, please correct me.

                          @Cartoon_Badman Hey there, that issue with the masks sounds unusual. Please contact our support team so they can help you get to the bottom of it:

                          As for Feuds, check out this description of how they are activated:
                          "You can be playing any team-based game with a completely new set of players, but if you spot two or more members of a crew you’re feuding with on the opposite team, any kills you get against them will count to the overall feud so rivalries will spring up automatically - and when they do, you’ll be notified and the grudge will come to the forefront of the game."

                        i didn't get this mask but it doesn't matter because the Day of the Dead Skull mask for the veteran crews is really cool.

                          ever since the last Patch my Filhos De Ogum will not store the the 8ustomizations I make. Everytime I start multiplayer it's randomized again and other folks have told me the same about whichever faction they keep as a Deathmatch character - can you fix?
