Announcing the Winner of the #illgottengains Rockstar Editor Contest

Posted on August 19 2015, 1:17pm | Author: R* L | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

After poring through entries with all sorts of creative interpretations on the directive to "show off your luxury spoils," congratulations go out to Social Club member pimpedupbadass for the winning entry, the aptly-titled "WHAT ILL-GOTTEN-GAINS IS ALL ABOUT." By earning top prize, he'll be receiving a custom G910 Orion Spark Gaming Keyboard and a G510 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse, both laser-engraved with his Social Club ID and the Rockstar Editor logo - plus a deluxe prize pack of official GTAV gear and a $100 gift card to the Rockstar Warehouse.


Beginning with a seemingly hard-luck lady who does time at Bolingbroke after getting pinched for grand theft auto, pimpedupbadass takes her out of the joint and straight into the vault of the Fleeca Bank. From there, she and her Heist teammates hit the jackpot and proceed to enjoy the fruits of their labor - from a Ponsonbys shopping spree to joyriding across Southern San Andreas in the breathtaking Progen T20.


The two esteemed runners-up will both receive a deluxe prize pack of official GTAV gear and a $100 gift card to the Rockstar Warehouse.

After a betrayal by his partner that left him with empty pockets and near death, the protagonist of GOTTEN PAYBACK vows to get revenge. It takes nearly eight years and lots of ammo, but watch his wish come true in this beautifully executed runner-up.

Welcome to Los Santos by BloodLust180
Set to the tune of The Alchemist and Oh No's banging track of the same name, Welcome to Los Santos serves as a perfect introduction to the city, and all the spoils of its nouveau riche. Highlighted by beautiful edits and action shots that show off everything from the serene backdrop of Vespucci Beach to the seedier parts of town, BloodLust180 has painted quite the picture of that LS life.


And here are a few eye-catching honorable mentions that we'd be remiss not to acknowledge.

Go Brawl Out! by mathewisonfire
With a license plate that reads "DEATH," mathewisonfire takes the Coil Brawler to the absolute max in what amounts to the ultimate commercial for this Ill-Gotten Gains Update Part 2 off-road vehicle. Venturing over rivers, mountain tops, beach dwellers and everything in between, not to mention pulling off stellar jumps and skid outs, this vid proves the Brawler is for "nearly anywhere, anytime."

Devil's Playground by Mrluckdragon
Three minutes and nine seconds of pure adrenaline and attitude... Testing out vehicles from both Ill-Gotten updates and knocking out victims with his Knuckledusters perfectly in sync to the music, this entry really packs a punch.

Fast Life by shorty2001
Lightning quick edits, high speed rides and parachute jumps off the Maze Bank Tower are just a few examples of just how maxed out and high octane this vid is - all edited perfectly to the lyrics of Vybz Kartel's song of the same name off the Welcome to Los Santos soundtrack.


Congrats again to all our winners and thanks to all our talented entrants. The upcoming launch of the Rockstar Editor for PS4 and Xbox One as the next update to Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online means the next Rockstar Editor Contest will be the first one with entries across all three platforms - so the creative competition will be fiercer than ever. Stay tuned for info about that contest and forthcoming update.

                                  @Arch_Enemy22 Get 2 people to sit in the c**kpit first, to be ale to sit in the back of the plane. Then get in first-person mode ;)
                                • TheSpedyBadgeron August 26 2015, 8:30pmReplyFlag
                                  @Arch_Enemy22 for the golden plane you need to, have someone in the pilot seat. hold Triangle or Y (what ever console) and your character should go in the back of the plane, from there go in FP mode.

                                  @MARTY-MCFLY_-1 That's not how their DLC's work—not by request. They can patch issues based on multiple complaints but they don't add in vehicles and weapons because you ask for them, that's all preplanned.
                                • moneyman3427on August 26 2015, 1:02pmReplyFlag
                                  @Wei_Kim Oh really. Where did you hear that from?

                                  @MARTY-MCFLY_-1 Send suggestion to rockstar through their developer email, that's where some of rockstar's update idea's take place.
