GTA Online Creator Throwback Jobs: San Andreas Anniversary Special

Posted on October 21 2014, 11:44am | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Ten years ago this month we were introduced to CJ, Big Smoke and the rest of the Grove Street Families as Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas launched on PlayStation 2. As we take a trip down memory lane (by way of Ganton), we've picked out 10 fun GTA Online Jobs published by nostalgic community members (5 each on PS3 and Xbox 360) using the Creator and shared them below. To play these, just click on the title link and select "Add to Game" to bookmark it for your Crew's next GTA Online session.

Race Dam Rider by SyxTnynE (PS3)
This well-balanced Race for 2-wheelers will take you from the Land Act Dam down to the northern outskirts of East Vinewood and back up through the Grand Senora Desert. Try a two lap option with Motorcycles then try switching it up with a single lap BMX for two great takes on this scenic route. Creator SyxTynE poses the challenge: "CJ beat the dam race, now can you?"

Team Deathmatch Grove Sweet Grove by Captain_Fred01 (PS3)
Grove Street itself has certainly been the focal point for many Deathmatch creators looking to represent the green and relive their glory days with The GSF. This particular take on bringing some mayhem to the block shows off a measured balance with an even spread on placement between conventional firearms and melee weapons. Captain Fred gives a familiar call to arms in the Job’s description: "Family's for life homie, you down?"

Race A Home in the Hills by Rozza3 (PS3)
Many will recall the great view from Madd Dogg's luxurious hillside mansion in Mulholland. This particular nod to that location will direct you through a sharp and winding circuit starting in Sandy Shores and along the jack knife turns of Baytree Canyon. Ultimately, you’ll arrive at an equally swanky residence in Galileo Park to bring home the win but be warned you'll need to navigate nimbly, so as not to smack directly into an unforgiving wall or unfortunate roadblock along the way.

Race N.O.E. by ala-eddine97 (PS3)
In the original San Andreas mission, Agent Mike Toreno tells Carl Johnson to "wake up and smell the coffee" and advises him to fly low under the radar, taking a "Nap of the Earth" style route to deliver a crucial package by nightfall. This equally demanding Air Race carves a large ark across Blaine County, starting near the Alamo Sea and concluding at Sandy Shores - and requires you to take on low-key altitudes beneath bridges and outcroppings to clear the checkmarks. Keep an eye out for rival flyers.

Race Sweet and Kendl by GoochTheftAuto95 (PS3)
Bike Race creator GoochTheftAuto95 describes this Job as, "A BMX Race from Hill Valley Cemetery to Grove Street and all the sights in-between. A homage to the San Andreas Mission with the same name." Playing through, you'll certainly start to feel some nostalgia for those early Los Santos missions but there are also some surprisingly massive drops mixed in along this course to keep you focused.

Race Bloodring Bangers by Arms Dealer (Xbox 360)
The Demolition Derby style Banger was a mainstay vehicle of the Bloodring Coliseum in Vice City that carried over to the primetime Blood Bowl in San Andreas. Our Creator in this instance has cleverly used inverted ramps inside the ULSA campus track and field stadium to trap "contestants" in an action-packed GTA Race. Great placement of Rockets, Speed Boosts and weapon pickups ratchet the carnage levels to a rambunctious roar.

Team Deathmatch Gray Imports by JIIThe_JokerIIK (Xbox 360)
According to the Creator of this 2-16 player Team Deathmatch based in the harbors of Elysian Island, you have been "sent over to the docks by CJ to disrupt a meeting between the Russians and the Ballers". Be sure to bring a large group and spread out your forces high and low, as every manner of weapon seems to have spilled out of the shipping crates on to the ground - immediately up for grabs to allies and enemies alike.

Team Deathmatch Grove Street Brawlers by Pressure.Drop (Xbox 360)
Being both a member of the well-known GTAPhotographers Crew and the Creator Core Club, Social Club member, Pressure.Drop appears to have a real knack for creative expression in GTA Online. In this mission, set in the heart of Davis, he takes it back to basics with an array of melee weapons to make things pretty unpleasant in Grove Street. Don't get it twisted though: there are also Molotov Cocktails and Tear Gas grenades to keep your enemies at bay or to press the advantage for your homies.

Race Little Loop by JIIThe_JokerIIK (Xbox 360)
The prolific #Throwback Job Creator JllThe JokerllK follows up with a solid motorbike Race named after the classic San Andreas circuit - with some great ramp placement. Setting the scene, the description reads: "Cesar Vialpando invites you to a sports bike race with ramps and obstacles, taking you from Downtown Vinewood to Los Santos airport, ending at CJ's old crib on Grove ST. Good luck."

Race Wrong Side of the Tracks by GTAMANIAC99 (Xbox 360)
In this fairly straight-forward GTA-style Race, local motorcycle enthusiasts willfully engage in a balls-to-the-wall, destructive tear down the LS train tracks running west to east from Cypress Flats, passing through Mirror Park and concluding in the Tataviam Mountains. You may luck out and tear ahead of the pack at some point but be warned: close-quarters exchanges in the numerous narrow tunnels you will encounter going towards the finish line could even the score at a moment's notice.

      Y porque Rockstar no permite a los jugadores crear misiones. Crei que seria un gran avance porque las misiones se reinventarian constantemente.

        I've made a Capture/Raid Mission in honor of the film The Way Of The Gun. The setting is the exchange in which two kidnappers are trying to get the ransom in the middle of the hotel. Game restrictions however made the plot just a bit different by making the two kidnappers have to off eachother as well as The Bagmen that have decided not to let them off the hook so easily. Created on the PS4 by ThatHighIndian. Please play and I hope you enjoy it as much as the movie.

                      i created 2 air races for a playlist. but they are really good and the people like it. the first one is called - Under the Radar - its a point to point to point race and its not that difficult you start high up in the air to take a dive so you get under the radar. the second one is called - Where Eagles Dare - and this i really like my self and i am not the the best pilot there is. but it gots everything a good air race need! you go over water under bridges throug a mountain pass over the mountain and you start with dive. after do it ones you no the way and you can go to set the record enjoy. i hope you all can read what i wrote because my english is not that good. LINK 1 - Under the Radar - #GTAV LINK 2 - Where Eagles Dare - #GTAV
