GTA Online Creator Throwback Jobs: Red Dead Tribute Special

Posted on September 8 2014, 4:16pm | Author: R* K | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

We've already seen some great nostalgic fan-Created GTA Online Jobs made in tribute to classic Rockstar titles and favorite missions from the GTA series. Today, we're heading back to the Old West with ones themed around the tale of John Marston's struggle to escape his past, 2010's Red Dead Redemption. Read on for a brief description of each Job, and if you'd like to add it to your game just click on the title link and select "Add to Game" to bookmark it for your next GTA Online session.


 Red Dead Redemption by LordSando (Xbox 360)

As long as you’re willing to overlook the occasional shipping container (think of them as abandoned railway cars), you could easily slip back in time and be convinced you've been transported to the Old West in this Deathmatch set around the dusty confines of the Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness. There's a back-to-basics feel to the restrained placement of Pistols, Sawn-Offs and Molotovs here and the varied elevation of the setting, paired with the generous cover, make for a well-balanced and tactical Deathmatch. Plus the opening standoff, with each team starting out facing each other, nicely approximates Red Dead's last-man-standing style Duels.

 Marston's Ranch by TheMckeever (PS3)

With the haze of New Austin far off in the distance, this rural retreat that’s reminiscent of Beecher's Hope is a great setting for a well-pitched Deathmatch. Pistols are the order of the day but, if you look hard enough, you may very well find a Sawn-Off or a Grenade to mix things up. Unless the Wright Brothers took an undocumented trip cross country, we're not sure if the Duster is completely on-theme... but we'll let that slide.

 Tesoro Azul by JaseTheChase (Xbox 360)

"Do you long for the days when Deadeye was king and the only thing between you and death was the speed of your draw with a Double-Action Revolver?" reads the description for this GTA Online take on Red Dead multiplayer mode "Hold Your Own", which has racked up over 600 plays at the time of this writing. JaseTheChase has used shipping containers and other Props to create a faithful replica of Tesoru Azul, one of the hideout locations in Nuevo Paraiso. The aim here is simple: grab the opposing team's bag and take it back to your base. Weapons are locked to Pistols but you can also find some Molotovs scattered around for fiery fun.

Red Dead Race by Zidane (PS3)

These steeds might not eat straw but this Sanchez Point-to-Point Race across the Grand Senora Desert, compliments of a long time member of the GTAGaming gang (and a Commissioner in the GTAGaming Crew), takes us back to playing Red Dead's Grand Prix. It's all here - weaving through cacti, cutting through brush and speeding along the rail track - albeit with a different kind of horsepower involved.

 RED DEAD by ScarfacexD16 (Xbox 360)

This Team Deathmatch takes place at the old sawmill and surrounding valleys located at the foot of Mount Chiliad and Mount Gordo. It features a good range of cover and elevation for a back-to-basics, Pistols-only shootout. Just beware of taking cover close to the gas tank at the back of the house. There's something a bit more combustible than manure inside...

 Red Dead by ElusiveBlk202 (PS3)

Another Deathmatch commencing with a close proximity Red Dead-style duel, but this time starting ammo is restricted so you really need to make every shot in the chamber count. From there it all goes down in an enclosed space surrounded by train carriages and removed from the modern trappings of civilization. Rocks are your cover and bushes your hiding spots, with a raised area in the center providing some great coming together moments.

 Tall Trees by adeadzombiebones (Xbox 360)

The mountainous and wooded Tall Trees area of West Elizabeth is a popular hunting ground in Red Dead and this GTA Online Job, set in Raton Canyon, substitutes Pistols and Shotgun skirmishes for skinning bearhides. Expect many tense shootouts as players make the most of the ample cover provided by the forest.

 GRAB THE BAG by BigSo786 (PS3)

Grab the Bag is one of Red Dead's best-loved multiplayer modes and this GTA Online version by BigSo786 is a fitting tribute. The central bags, protected at the beginning by potent Actors, and the small playing area make for an intense start as all four teams converge. Once things spread out, varied elevation and a good spread of weapon pickups offer scope to mix up your tactical approach.

          Wow, Rockstar. These look awesome. Maybe for your next event, you should go with a Cowboys theme complete with some outlaw Marston outfits.

            If you want to find some jobs that unlock things quick then checkout mad car crew's jobs some air races that last 25 seconds. And some awesome land races oh and then there's the drag strip that takes about 35 seconds easy unlock for the engine's with other players.
