Crew Recruitment: The Rockstar Newswire Noticeboard

Posted on November 8 2013, 12:42pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Games, Social Club

Crews have been a thriving feature in the Social Club community since the launch of Max Payne 3 and now with the arrival of Grand Theft Auto Online, we've witnessed recruitment efforts explode in Newswire comments and across Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and other sites and forums around the web.

To help aid your recruitment needs and to provide a proper on-topic destination for your Crew solicitation comments, we are introducing this new regular "Crew Recruitment" column here at the Rockstar Newswire as a special new companion piece to our longstanding Crew Cut series that highlights awesome Crew activity happening in the open world wild. Here we'll feature a new batch each time of select Crews we've seen on their membership drive hustle, and we also invite and encourage you to post a link to your Crew Page in comments below along with your best pitch to prospective new recruits about why your squad is the one worth aligning with. If you're a lone wolf looking for a GTA family, then this post and its comments section will be an ideal place to scroll through to find likeminded criminals, free roamers, street racers, gangsters, pranksters, sportsmen and warriors. Are you a large competitive Crew, looking to amass an army of followers to dominate on the Team Deathmatch Circuit? A group of motor heads and speed demons, looking to trick out your whips in the latest modifications to assure consistent first place wins? Are you a casual close-knit group of Free Roam hooligans, simply looking for your next laugh and a new way to put the physics and the unsuspecting pedestrians of Los Santos to the test?

We realize there are many styles and preferences from Crew to Crew - some coming together organically in an Online Playlist or lobby for the first time and teaming up with people they work well with, others have close ties from real life friendships and previous games, while some simply share a common interest. Nevertheless, having a close circle of people or large group of players you can call on to help you complete a difficult mission or stand your ground in a heated gun battle is just one benefit of being part of a Crew - along with the more practical perks of course such as Bonus RP for playing with your Crew mates or Crew Emblems to show solidarity amongst your ranks, as well as many others listed here

And to start in our inaugural Crew Recruitment noticeboard lineup here at the Rockstar Newswire, here are a dirty half-dozen motley Crews that are ready for action and open for enrollment:

donutguy12 is hoping you’ll join his crew, the Marvel Alliance. Nuff said? Can we get an official rivalry brewing with these guys?


"The legendary Crew "Marvel Alliance" continues to prosper. Have no fear though, you too can be a member. Free of charge. So that means all you gotta do is visit the link below and BAM! You're all set to go." 


Novacane_Sab feels a bit Giggity-Giggity-Goo about The Shockhers emblem.


"Looking for a laid back casual PS3 Crew with a sense of humour? Well look no further my friends! Join The Shockhers today! Best part of all NO LAME REQUIREMENTS! We are Mostly in the USA & have mics and are adults. We also have one of the very best emblems around baby!"


Mr.Voller wants you to know his "this thing of ours" outfit the Ditcham Crew is strictly business.

"DHMC is still recruiting and growing. Want to be part of an organised family where there's always something to do? Look the part of a Mafioso, too smart to kill. Work hard, play hard is the way to go, tear up the streets of LS by killing cops or robbing shops or doing bounties, with crews or on your own.

Join Ditcham Crew to show GTA Online what organised crime is all about on this game. PS3 ONLY. You're either one of US or another dead man walking!"



evilGrimReaperDe and the Reapers Chapter MC will be tolling the bell for the unlucky who cross their path on the roadways of San Andreas.


"Like motorcycles? - Want to get patched up, and ride with us 1%ers?
Join the Reapers Chapter Motorcycle Club (RCMC)
• At least 1 American-built motorcycle in your garage
• Attitude of teamwork (no noobs please)
• Biker 1%er patches (Crew emblem)"


TDS_tobias from The Devil Scorpion Crew show us that he and his cohorts have international appeal.


The Devil Scorpion est une team fun on est la plus pour déliré mais pas de joueurs en dessous de 20 ans merci ;) nous avons également un forum ou l'inscription est recommander . . . Merci et bonne soirer. PS: pour plus d'info ajouter moi sur psn avec un msg car sinon je ne serai pourquoi vous venez.



a_fine_mess is confident in The Devils Within's ability to go toe-to-toe with any size Crew.

"If you're looking for a Crew to join, why not join The Devils Within. We'll accept anyone (PS3). If you don't plan on making this Crew your active crew don't bother joining, we're looking for members who will actually play with us.

A Crew that plays together, grows together. 300 is just a number, we're as big as you want this Crew to be. This is a PS3 Crew Only."



Others like chrispypitts from The Dead Guys are taking a somewhat different approach at recruitment by making a Crew Recruitment video.

Feel free to share your story and what your Crew is about in the comments section below. We only ask that you please just don’t spam (meaning only post once, do not repost your recruitment message repeatedly) and please keep all such comments strictly on this and future Crew Recruitment articles. This is also the ideal opportunity to show off your Crew spirit with any fun group Snapmatic photos and any awesome gameplay videos you've made to show everyone why your squad is the place to be or the team to beat.

    Great to see so much enthusiastic Crew recruiting going on here in comments.

    Just a reminder though to please exercise proper decorum and do NOT copy/paste spam your recruitment message in comments. Please only post once a day or so and make a point to be switch up the messaging so it's not the same exact message as the previous one left. Those who copy and paste their message more than once or are posting too often may have their commenting privileges suspended. Thanks for understanding and best of luck with all your Crew membership drives!

    Crewless?... And needing a crew to cruise around Los Santos with?... maybe your simply bored of your current crew and your wanting to join a crew with: morals, respect, skill and a proper dress code?... Then why not join: The Purple Outlawz. The best crime ring Los Santos has to offer.

    The Purple Outlawz never surrender... We are the original gangsters of Los Santos.

    -Members need to be wearing purple, it shows that you are showing intrest to the crew, you don't have to go all out, maybe at least the all new awesome crew emblem on a T-shirt.

    -Member should invest in a crew vehicle ... Perhaps a Purple Elergy RH8, because it is a low cost for low ranked players who struggle with money, when every player reaches level 10 the emblem shall be added to your crew vehicle, These vehicles will be used to cruise around Los Santos and Blaine county with your crew, they will also be used for when your in jobs with crew members and transportation to meeting/meet ups.

    -Any member that spams, bots, disobeys their superior, or speaks to another member in a way that's racial, sexual, or homophobic will be booted from the family indefinitely. Report it to a Commissioner or The Crew Leader. There's no excuse for that.

    - We are a very new crew and we are still learning the ropes and we are still recruiting new members. If you are from another crew we would love some allies... But we are still open to enemys. Our crew is currently open for a short amount of time... The crew link is down below.

                                      Looking for a crew dedicated to bounty hunting and general awesomeness? Well if you said yes then the Norfolkhuntersclub may be the crew for you. Grand Theft Auto v is a violent and bloody game. And we have taken advantage of that in the form of this crew. We don't care what players you kill or what personal vehicles you destroy, we truly are looking for people who enjoy being jerks. There really are pretty much no rules (except killing other crew members) so you can potentially have a huge amount of fun in this crews we are currently open to anyone joining, so come let's have some fun. Join the Norfolkhuntersclub. Remember the official name is Norfolkhuntersclub. we play on xbox so if you have a playstation then I'm sorry but you miss out on great fun.
