GTA Online Rockstar Verified Jobs Update: The Roads Less Traveled
In the latest round of Rockstar Verified commendations, we've highlighted some Jobs that either break new ground or approach some of GTA Online's beaten paths from a fresh perspective - among them the first Verified Air Race, the latest take on high speed highway jumping and a reminder that the light at the end of the tunnel just might be an oncoming train.
Check out all the details on these new Verified Jobs below, and stay tuned for the next batch to be announced soon including the very first Verified Capture Jobs selected from our #CaptureWeekend submissions which we're currently playing through for consideration.
Final Destination - Created by TonyResta
Congrats to TonyResta for creating the first ever Air Race to be Rockstar Verified. It is certainly no easy task to make an Air Race that is challenging but not impossible, or one that uses the skyscape of Los Santos in such a dynamic and interesting way. The Leader of the four-strong Italian Connection has done just that with this race that features plenty of opportunities to showcase your flying skills as you're directed under the bridges of the Los Santos storm drain.
2 Mile Lap Divided - Created by Family1974
With 43 Jobs published, FAMILY1974 is already a grizzled veteran of the GTA Online Creator tool. Practice has paid off with this riotus Land Race that maximizes the chance of head on collisions (much like the previously Verified 4 Way Madness). In fact, in this one it's practically unavoidable, so buckle up... The starting grid is split by the central reservation of a highway, dividing the cars in half all the way down the long straight. At the end the carnage begins, as there's a hairpin turn that sees each half of the grid forced to face each other head on, at high speed. Our advice? Go hard or go home.
Alleyways - Created by omgsamurai
Creators Link Crew member omgsamurai is also no slouch when it comes to the Creator with 30 published Jobs to their name. All in all, this Japanese Crew of nearly 500 have amassed almost 3,300 creations, and omgsamurai's "Alleyways" is the first to earn a Verified nod. In this motorbike race you'll have white knuckles clinging to the handlebars all the way through the tight and twisting alleyways of Morningwood. Describing this one as challenging might be an understatement - moto pros only need apply.
Break out the Brakes - Created by IckyDoodyPoopoo
Wearing a two-striped Crew Tag that indicates membership in a Social Club Founder Crew (in this case the GTA Racers), the offbeat-named IckyDoodyPoopoo is responsible for this short but challenging Land Race that features "grand prix style turns". Break Out The Brakes was selected for Rockstar Verification thanks to its clever use of props to carve a new path in the Downtown Los Santos area of the map that has been well worn by other Job Creators.
Riding the Tracks - Created by Ben.Stock96
11 miles of pure, unadulterated tension await in the longest Race we've ever Verified. Running along the entire length of the railway line, this thrilling Race travels against the grain into oncoming locomotive traffic, so at at any moment you may find yourself staring into the lights of the express from Blaine County Train Depot on its way to Downtown Los Santos.
Simply Sanchez - Created by Refuso
A daring and original Race for off-roaders and dirt bikes, through the Vinewood Hills. We are impressed by the use of certain off-road sections that have rarely been used or seen in Races before, with some exhilarating jumps over the rolling landscape for extra thrills. Race Creator Refuso has been kind enough to share some tips in the Job description: "You should slow down at the big orange juice stand so you don't overshoot the turn on to the mountain ridge. Make sure you line up properly for the finish." Take heed.
The Dirty Maze - Created by dannyar21
The Dirty Maze is a point-to-point Land Race for dirt bikes that spirals down into the center of the Davis Quartz quarry. Like the best off-road bike tracks, this one is full of tight turns and bumpy terrain. There's been surprisingly few Jobs created around this area despite the pre-made track and the dynamic changes in elevation, so we're glad that dannyar21 has taken advantage of an underappreciated spot on the map.
White Cars Can't Jump - Created by Therealxstacide
With White Cars Can't Jump, Creator Therealxstacide has nailed the art of the highway jumping race that was popularized in Races like Jumps Jumps Jumps. The format here is similar - evenly spaced Jumps along the Great Ocean Highway - but the placement of train carriages to jump through makes for added element of danger. You either smoke or you get smoked.
Little Seoul Park - Created by Phipparama
Phipparama gives a whole new meaning to "recreation area" in this Team Deathmatch at the communal park in Little Seoul. Send the skaters and b-ballers running for cover with a host of incendiaries including RPGs, Grenades and carefully placed Gas Cylinders. This is a great Job for small sides - 3v3 or 4v4 is our recommendation - and yet another Created Job in an area thus far seemingly overlooked by GTA Online Job Creators.
Area 53 - Created by giuli0207
Another fun Team Deathmatch for small sides in an unusual and underappreciated location, this time at the "alternative" art installation on the outskirts of Sandy Shores. Creator giuli0207 gives a narrative context to this close encounter in the Job description: "Someone has proof that an UFO crashed in Sandy Shores next to Omega's cabin. And now the FIB and LSPD fight against the military because both sides want to get the case. To get some extra cash from the government."
Please note that in addition to occasionally changing Job names due to taste, copyright or other reasons - we also from time to time will make other small edits to players' Jobs before making them Rockstar Verified. This includes, but is not limited to modifying spawn points, improving checkpoints or increasing/decreasing the amount of weapon picks ups for a particular Job. Once Jobs are Rockstar Verified, they become available for play across both platforms, so whether you're on Xbox 360 or PS3, you'll have all these newly Verified creations available in your next Freemode session (you can also bookmark them at the Social Club for easy access in your next session).
Go ahead and post your Job below in the comments (only once, please don't spam) with a punchy explanation of why it's worth checking out. We're always looking for new player-created Jobs to add to the Rockstar Verified program and the best way to get noticed is to have a solid Race or Deathmatch that's been thoroughly tested by the community and refined into the most fun and fair experience it can be.
