Crew Recruitment: The Rockstar Newswire Noticeboard

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

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!

          1. Are you getting tired of free roam "war zones" where psycho killers rule?
          2. During missions have you gotten flattened or killed by aggressive players?
          3. Ever join a mission and then get kicked out because of your rank or skill?

          Our crew, Mission Patriots is focused on building experience, making money and having fun. All members are treated with respect regardless of their skill or experience. Our way of playing missions is all about teamwork where everyone has a role to play and is able to contribute to the success. And most important of all, one of our goals is to start and finish each mission as a team where no member is left behind.

          You must be at least 18+ years old, be a team player and must not kill other crew members. Mics not required. (PS3/PS4)

            I'm looking for some PS4 crew members to join me and my Red Rat Soliders first few become my commissioners. We're small crew starting fresh. Only rule I would say is not to kill your fellow crew members. All jobs and heists are to be split evenly. We're just about having fun and hanging out and working together find me FoolishZom-b on social club or check us out Red Rat Soliders.

              Hey! Looking for crew members for a brand-new PS4 crew!

              We're looking for loyal, mature players (it doesn't matter if you're a low rank I'm the leader and I'm on rank 12). So don't hesitate and contact me!

              We are also respectful and we require the same from each and every member of our group.
              We do missions, races, TDM, Deathmatches and pretty much anything that's fun!

              Consider us:

                Looking to level up and make money? The aim for this crew is to help its members to grow in experience, ability, and financially. I, myself play daily and am constantly on Missions and more.. But all work and no play is not always fun so if you enjoy being naughty why not take a break for the occasional mischievous deed. Who doesn't enjoy a little pedestrian kill here and there, or messing with the cops.. ...because being Bad feels so Good.

                I am also in search of active players who wish to rank up to Lieutenants. In order to qualify you need to be an active player, almost daily, and your loyalty must be to LOKI. Also, you must at least be in the rank of Duke Of Annoyance. Any one interested send me a message and we'll talk. Wicked.E-Death

                To REPRESENTATIVES and SPECIALLY LIEUTENANTS, you must ALWAYS wear our emblem on your character or vehicle!
                MUSCLE Crew, I don't mind if you belong to multiple crews but remember that Muscle is where you will stay. When ever you join us for Missions or anything else you must wear our crew tag LOKI.

                To ALL MEMBERS!!
                Do Not Kill Crew Members and Always Help One In Need. Wanna kill each other? Do it in a DeathMatch. A mic would be great but not required.

                          Hey, I am the leader of Ronin Massacre- we are a full crew however have sub crews also owned by me that are nowhere near full.
                          We hope to one day become a "super-crew" this means we wish to become well known and have a vast amount of members across our sub crews.
                          These crews are all friendly to each other and under any circumstances should never attack another crew member.
                          We do however, permit killing, attacking and harassing of people not involved with us- just be reasonable and make sure you don't get yourself banned.
                          We are a multi- platform crew ranging across all platforms- this makes sure that everyone is aware of who we are.
                          We are also a friendly community and make sure everyone who joins us feels welcome.
                          And finally, ranks can be earnt through inviting friends, helping players in our crew, being active and from participating regularly in any crew events.
                          If we sound like the type of crew you are interested in- click on my profile and join any of the crews. Hope to see some of you guys in- game.
