GTA Online Creator: Fan-Made Rockstar Throwback Jobs

Posted on May 21 2014, 10:53am | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Games

We recently took a look at a fan-made GTA Online playlist of created Jobs inspired by scenes from The Warriors and asked fans to share any Jobs they may have made in homage to favorite films or even our own games of yesteryear. For Rockstar fans feeling nostalgic, here’s a roundup of a few player-made Creator Jobs that came to our attention that have either been made in direct tribute to or are otherwise certainly reminiscent of classic Rockstar titles like Manhunt, Midnight Club, Smuggler’s Run and more. Check ‘em out and feel free to bookmark them for a play.


Carcer City by Zayvorne (Team Deathmatch)

By day, Textile City appears to be a colorful tapestry of fabrics and commerce. As darkness descends and the rain starts to fall, the lawless streets of this trader's square suddenly run red with bloodshed. Small arms weapons are gathered near the center of this map, but venturing further out to the eastern fringe you'll discover a few hidden surprises to aid you in putting on quite the show for viewers at home.

MANHUNT by staggeredguitar (Deathmatch)

Staggeredguitar invites players to "stab, bat and brutalize in this close quarters Manhunt style map". The narrow alleys and tight corners in downtown Rancho cement an unnerving atmosphere where you find yourself having to make careful choices about when and where to climb in pursuit of your prey. Touching down in someone's backyard, you may find yourself overrun by an enemy lying in wait or encounter a Molotov cocktail crashing down upon you, leaving no place to avoid the flames. If you enjoy this one, be sure to also check out Staggered's other Manhunt nods, MANHUNT (URBAN BEATDOWN) and MANHUNT (PIER PRESSURE).


Smuggler's Run by Ackidapacki  (Land Race)

Drug smugglers are moving a larger shipment of product that has arrived in Paleto Bay. The thing is: the buyer is in Los Santos. First car there gets the payday of their lives.” There are four vehicle classes available for this endurance testing jaunt - Muscle, Off-Road, SUVs and Vans. While the Race begins on the smoothly paved west Highway 1 near Paleto Bay, things suddenly take a rural turn via a sharp left angle leading back into the Paleto Forest. Shooting straight up to the zigzags of the Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness, you'll find many opportunities to send an opponent spiraling off a hillside into an unforgiving ravine below. As you return to the civilization of Elysian Island and Banning you will literally smash through the gates towards the finish line but be mindful of the last few turns along the off-road trail in Rancho. You may be far from the northwest wilderness but you're just a sharp cut-off away from eating dirt.

Smuggler's Run by giftedhanz19  (Capture)

This dry and barren stretch of desert wedged between the West Vinewood Hills and the Zancudo River pits "two teams to fight over an already occupied bag of goods", per creator giftedhanz19. By "already occupied" he means you will be interrupting a transaction in progress and the local yokels will not take too kindly to two groups of interlopers invading from the northern and southern parts of the map. Use all manner of off-road vehicle to make your escape but avoid the open roads as that will make it far easier for greedy pursuers to close the distance and snatch back the goods you've stolen.



Max Payne 3 by GroveSTHome (Team Deathmatch)

If you spent countless hours battling it out within the posh corporate hallways and spacious lobbies of Branco Headquarters or exchanging gunfire along the rooftops of Club Moderno in Max Payne 3, this Created Job located in the attractively modern and remote confines of the Kortz Center offers up some of the best elements from your favorite Bullet Time shooter. Whether you're posted up in one of the many exterior stairwells, doing strategic sweeps with the Buzzard Attack Chopper or creeping through the hedge maze you'll have more than enough ample opportunities to keep the blood flowing and the bullets flying.

Hold: Gang Wars by Hiroshio  (Capture)

Also channeling the spirit of Max Payne 3 Multiplayer is a clever Capture by Creator Hiroshio, who seems to have a clear vision for this intense West Vinewood to Chamberlain Hills battle. Hiroshio states, "Your initiation into the gang consists of stealing. We've gotten word that multiple shipments of weapons and cash have been delivered. Steal these shipments and drop them off at our HQ. These shipments will be heavily guarded. Our gang members don't know you yet so they will shoot you on sight. Also beware of rival gang members. We're not the only ones who know about this." Los Santos may be quite a bit northwest of São Paulo but the challenging bag placement and vicious NPC Gang factions will make you start fiending for pain killers in no time.


Midnight Club by Geordieboy89 (Land Race)

This large circuit around the city, appropriately set in the dead of night, contains many strategic jumps and potential explosions. Starting out in centrally located La Mesa, you make your way east from Murietta Heights past several landmark locations and end up going as far south as Elysian Island, rounding the trek back to the finish line near Los Santos International Airport. The course itself is littered with wreckage and has a few ramps that are mandatory for clearance to the next checkpoint. For two decidedly different Race experiences, switch to motorbikes on your second playthrough and watch out for those unforgiving highway road signs.

Midnight Club by Licky106  (Land Race)

This pedal to the metal, tire tread destroyer starts out in Rockford Hills, cutting a seismic fault line through West Vinewood, Burton, Richman, GWC and will even turn a few snooty heads near the Golfing Society if you opt to run this course during the daylight hours. Along this circuit, you'll encounter no less than four deceptively placed, razor sharp right turns that are specifically designed to promote car-on-car collision. If you are approaching one of those said turns amongst an armada of fellow racers, it may behoove you to let them race ahead directly into the turn and then nimbly skate by the twisted pileup unscathed.


Bullworth by festivecave (Team Deathmatch)

It should come as no surprise that a Social Club member who is enrolled in the Bullworth Alumni Rockstar Crew would endeavor to recreate the campus hijinks of Bully in GTA Online. With the campus at the University of San Andreas Los Santos serving as the backdrop, you can duke it out with your most contentious classmates to prove who's the BMOC.

Bully by AVERIX72 (Deathmatch)

With plenty of melee weapons in plain view and only a few firearms scattered sparsely around this one, it'll be a recess-style mad dash to gain the upper hand in this chaotic DM. Lure opponents out to the center of the ULSA track-and-field stadium to show them the grass isn't the only thing getting mowed down today (you may also notice a cameo appearance from the Mower - a little nod to Jimmy Hopkins' many labored hours of detention).

        Just because everyone is jerking off on GTAV doesn't mean that MP3 fans should suffer. This is a great game. It would be cool if the servers worked ALL THE TIME. and I would stop getting incompatible data messages with partys and empty lobbies. Fix this game. New players are even trying to play it and they can't cause the server issues.

          I wish you guys would fix the servers

                      I think it would be so dope if u guys made a new survival like in the hood like in grove street or the ballas territory that would be dope and fun and instead of helicopters just have them come in like 6 huntleys or those big black trucks that the swat come in n have like 4-6 men in each truck that would be fun im sure everyone would enjoy that

                        Midnight club races are good but it would be nice to a couple of my own races to be verified as they live up to the same expectations of midnight club races. If you see this Rockstar then PLEASE verify one or two of my races. If any players see in me (STEASH2) in your lobby ask me to do a race with you, there are 7 to choose from. Thanks.

                          Again, congrats.
                          I have some ideas for this... but how about some Racing and Stuntmen gear? Evel Knievel suits, Dale Earnhardt jumpers, and motor cross/x-game, sky diving apparel. These would be some cool additions...
