Exclusive Unlocks, In-Game Discounts and More in the GTA Online Freemode Events Social Club Weekend this Fri-Sun

Posted 2 weeks, 3 days ago | Author: R* M | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Prepare for a whole 'nother level of Freemode chaos in GTA Online this weekend. To help you gain an edge in the array of new games and challenges in this week's Freemode Events Update, retailers across Los Santos and Blaine County are slashing prices on a whole host of goods and services, including fast rides, heavy weapons and assistance from the likes of Lester Crest, Merryweather and Pegasus. There's also a new GTAV gear sweepstakes to enter at Social Club and exclusive in-game t-shirts to unlock each day this weekend. Read on for the full breakdown of everything going on in GTA Online this weekend:


In case you missed it as part of our announcement earlier this week, if you complete any five of the brand new GTA Online Freemode Events or Challenges by Sunday, you'll get GTA$50,000 bonus in-game cash plus the exclusive Vapid t-shirt for your in-game character. The GTA$ and t-shirt will be awarded to your GTA Online character by Friday, September 25.


Your vehicle choice during the Freemode Events and Challenges can be the difference between winning or losing, surviving or perishing. Whether you're being shunted out of contention in Penned In, nailing that Longest Jump you scouted out last week, or in a race to bag your place in Kill List Competitive, you'll want a vehicle that will give you the best possible chance of victory. Pull out your iFruit and place an order for some of our recommended vehicles, which have been handily discounted by 50% for this weekend only. Full list below:

Adder Buzzard Insurgent Savage
Annihilator Dubsta Lectro Seashark
Armored Kuruma Entity XF Mallard Vestra
Bati801RR Frogger Marshall Zentorno
Besra Hakuchou Sanchez  


To make sure you're properly prepared to wreak havoc in Freemode Events like Hot Property, King Of The Castle, Hunt The Beast and others, Ammu-Nation is bringing out the heavy artillery this weekend, slashing prices by half on the Heavy Sniper, Micro SMG, Carbine Rifle and Minigun, as well as all ammo. And protect yourself from insidious onslaughts this weekend with half off on Armor, Bulletproof Helmets and Bulletproof Tires.


With the action coming thick and fast, sometimes the best way to get by is with a little help from your friends. You may need to lose a pesky Wanted Level or call for a Helicopter to chauffeur you to the Freemode Event location. You also want to maximize your chances in Hot Property or King Of The Castle by arriving on the scene in a Lazer - or perhaps have your Buzzard Attack Chopper delivered nearby to ensure you've got the best perspective on the runaway Beast. For these possibilities and more, all Pegasus and Merryweather Phone Services are discounted by 50% this weekend, along with Lester's Remove Wanted Level service to guarantee you're never hindered in taking part in the next Freemode Event.


To celebrate the launch of the Rockstar Editor for PS4 and Xbox One, three new t-shirts featuring some of Vinewood's biggest blockbusters will be made available this weekend. To grab them, all you need to do is log on to GTA Online once per day throughout the Event Weekend - every day you log on you'll get a different t-shirt added to your character's inventory:

Friday, September 18th: Vinewood Zombie
Saturday, September 19th: I Married My Dad
Sunday, September 20th: Die Already



Specifically for Xbox 360 & PS3 players this weekend, we're increasing the frequency on all kinds of classic Freemode occurrences, including Armored Trucks, Kill Targets and High Priority Vehicles - with lucrative rewards upon completion of each. Amidst this mayhem, special Event Crate Drops will also be descending from the skies on Xbox 360 & PS3, with exclusive t-shirts that you might have missed out on in previous Events.


To celebrate the world-spanning nature of the GTA Online Freemode Events Update, our Social Club Weekend contest features a collection of GTA merch that's representative of what Los Santos and Blaine County has to offer. It includes a Merryweather T-Shirt, Los Santos Lifeguard T-shirt, GTA V Epsilon Paperweight, GTA V Loneliest Robot Greeting Card, GTA V Lifeinvader Mouse Pad and Rockstar sticker packs as well. To enter for your chance to nab the gear, head over to the Social Club Events Page and hit the Enter Sweepstakes button in the lower right corner.

Announcing The ILL-GOTTEN GAINS Event Weekend: Part One - June 12th-14th

With the bank balances of Los Santos' finest criminals now firmly in the black - it's time to grab some R&R with the Ill-Gotten Gains Event Weekend: Part One, running from this Friday, June 12th through June 14th. There's a full host of in-game bonuses to get your grubby little mitts on, as well as a Social Club Sweepstakes, livestreams and much more.


For the gluttonous, the miserly and everyone in-between – grab even more GTA$ this weekend when playing the Adversary Modes that were released alongside GTA Online Heists. If you haven’t yet had a chance to play these three new Modes – which require mastering tactics such as mowing over cyclists in a truck, executing sawn-off shotgun drive-bys and defending against onrushing hunters out for your head – the Double Cash rewards for all who play make it a great time to start. Don't forget to brush up on our Adversary Modes Game Tips posts to max out your winnings.

To jump straight into Double Cash Adversary Modes, simply hit the Event button during the GTAV boot screens and you'll find yourself in a lobby with other cynical mercenaries straining under the weight of their loot. If Double $$ isn't enough of an incentive, be sure to stick around 'til the end of the Playlist and you'll be rewarded with an explosive armory completion bonus including Sticky Bombs, Molotovs, Proximity Mines and Body Armor so you can blast your way to the front of the line during your next shopping spree at Ponsonby's.


With six new vehicles to choose from you'll want to select your new ride carefully, whether it's the mighty Pegassi Osiris, the Benefactor Stirling with gull wing doors, or the sumptuous Luxor Deluxe. Take each one for a test drive with 2X RP in all Races all weekend.


If your accountant is finding it difficult to get creative with the source of your new earnings, it may be time to clean that dough by treating yourself to the spoils of war. Accessorize your hefty bank balance with stylish living quarters as well as garages fit for a kingpin. With a cool 25% off High-End Apartments and Garages, now's the time to upgrade to the next level of living, or increase your garage capacity so you can squeeze in a few more cars.


In the great banquet of life, hanging around the top table there will always be bottom feeders waiting for scraps; thankfully the smugglers have got those choosy beggars covered with bounties delivered from on high throughout the weekend. Keep an eye out around the luxurious hangouts of Los Santos great and good such as the racetrack, yacht club and Rockford Hills areas for an increased frequency of Crate Drops containing GTA$10K and exclusive in-game t-shirts featuring knock off versions of Portola Drive's finest luxury retailers, as pictured below. The throwaway fashion industry dictates these t-shirts are only available this weekend in GTA Online, so be sure to keep your greedy eyes on the skies.

Rockstar Editor Tips: The Language of Cinema

Posted on June 4 2015, 10:28am | Author: R* M | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Whether you already consider yourself a seasoned veteran of the Rockstar Editor, or are just now starting to come to grips with this powerful new game feature in the hopes of winning the current Rockstar Editor Video Contest, you'll want to have a good grasp of how cinema is used as a language to convey themes and drive a narrative. The third installment in our Rockstar Editor Tips Series offers a look at some popular methods to achieve this.

Try manual focus pulls between objects at different distances for an intense cinematic effect.

Dive into some real world cinema studies for great examples of how to effectively do this. John Hillcoat (The Proposition, The Road) created a short film based on Red Dead Redemption several years back which uses key techniques such as establishing shots, montage, flashback, zooms, and pans. Take the time to critically assess the work of your favorite directors and consider what the aesthetic choices they've made are and more importantly, why they've made them. For real life directors who are famous for work in the arena of music videos, may we recommend checking out the back catalogue of Michel GondryChris CunninghamGreg Bunkalla and Gangrene's own Jason Goldwatch. Some specific recommendations to this point below:

  • A beginning, a middle and an end is the core structure to any narrative, so don't just launch into the action! Even in a short three or four minute film, a three-act structure is essential to making a story coherent. Running, Man is an excellent example of this: In act one, Trevor shows purpose and direction looking over Blaine County from Mt. Chiliad. In act two, we have the core action of Trevor running and growing the beard. Act three is the pay off: Trevor's journey reaches a satisfactory conclusion, he looks across the ocean and turns back to keep running as the music kicks back in. 
  • Establishing shots are essential to setting the scene in your first act; a strong opening image can also imply the themes and action to come in a story. For some inspiration, check out El Serpe's remake of the House Of Cards opening titles. This remake is an excellent series of establishing shots that showcase all of the horror and the beauty of Los Santos.
  • Use fades to show the passage of time. Instantly cutting from a character at one location, to the same character at another location can be jarring and imply that they warped or that there are two cloned characters. It's much better to show the character walking off-camera, followed by a fade-out, then a fade-in at a new location with the character there. (That said, John Hillcoat actually eschews fades in his opening establishing shots of John Marston crossing the deserts of West Elizabeth. However, notice how in three consecutive shots, Marston is in the same part of the frame and travelling left to right across the frame. In this way we see that he is on one continuous journey across a great distance.)
  • The GTAV player cam has a deliberately wide field-of-view to aid gameplay, so the player can see more of what is happening around them. However, films often tend to use much tighter shots, whether to give a sense of more speed in action scenes like car chases (since objects are crossing the frame more quickly) or more intensity in close-up shots of actors' faces. Keep this in mind when framing your shots in free cam and use the Zoom feature to get the ideal field-of-view.
  • The Rule of Thirds – an important technique not just in films but in all forms of visual art. Placing objects/actors of interest within one third of the image in line with imaginary intersections increases the attention drawn to them rather than just centering the view on them. Scenes tend to look cooler using this technique. Previously featured and mentioned in the initial Rockstar Editor Tips Series, Boris the Blade's Super Clown uses this technique well.

If you have any more tips for using the Rockstar Editor please feel free to share them in the comments section below. Alternatively, if you've made a video that illustrates any of these tips, or any of your own, you can also share those with the community below. And best of luck to everyone entering the contest to create the Official Music Video for “Leave” by Wavves. You've got until June 8th to submit your cinematic masterpiece for a shot at the custom G910 Orion Spark Gaming Keyboard and G510 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse, plus a prize pack of GTAV gear and a $100 Rockstar Warehouse gift card.

Rockstar Editor Tips: Camera Effects & Soundtrack

Posted on May 27 2015, 4:04pm | Author: R* M | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

In our second selection of Rockstar Editor focused tips, we're honing in on how to use some of the Camera Effects and Soundtrack settings to your advantage. If you missed our initial write-up on Capturing Footage from last Friday, be sure to check that out, along with our Rockstar Editor tutorial guide on Social Club

Experiment with different camera effects, but be sure to make the camera effect fit the action.

There are a wide array of camera effects that can really make your scene unique. We've highlighted just a few here, but take the time to play around with different effects to see what works for you. Once you've found the perfect combination, try to keep some consistency throughout your film - constantly shifting between different filters and styles will only disorientate the viewer, and might make your film seem unpolished.

Blends are an excellent cinematic tool, and only possible in the Rockstar Editor. There are a couple of options for Blends which you should be clear on: “Easing - Off” will move the camera the same speed through every frame of the blend, which you might want in a fast action scene with fast cuts to make the movements more sudden and jerky. On the other hand, "Easing - On" will increase and decrease camera speed as the camera moves in and out of the blend for more fluid movement. You also have a choice between Linear and Smooth Blend. A Linear Blend will move the camera directly between the Blend Markers so you know exactly where the camera will be and what will be in the frame when it reaches a Marker. A Smooth Blend will make the camera travel in a curve to go to the approximate positions of each Marker on your Blend, but there will be no sudden change of direction when it hits intermediate Markers.
If you find that during a Blend your subject matter goes out of frame, you can add in an extra Marker at the point where the subject is out of frame and use that to reposition the camera slightly (while editing in Free Cam). You can see a good example of how to do this in Olli43's tutorial video. For even more precision editing, try putting the scene in slow motion to nail down the perfect timestamp for your Marker.

Get to grips with the Depth of Field tools available; these allow you to draw the viewer’s eye by focusing on specific areas and blurring out others. Resist the temptation to overuse it though as it won’t have the same impact when used sparingly.

Score intensity changes can sound really epic, and when paired with the action in your film make the whole piece feel more cinematic. Note that Music intensity settings only work for scored instrumental tracks, but if you're editing to a track like "Leave" by "Wavves" (for the current Rockstar Editor contest), you may wish to raise and lower the volume to add extra weight to the scenes in your video. Have an action scene with explosions and gunfire? Crank up the SFX for that scene and drop down the music and dialogue. Silence can also be useful in places to catch the viewer's attention. Check out Spike Jonze' video for The Beastie Boys' "Don't Play No Game that I Can't Win" to see how music levels and sound effects really change the action.

For entrants to the contest, don’t forget to use the Skip To Beat function to make sure your editing keeps up with the beat. Timing a particular cut to match up with a change in music can have a dramatic effect on the punch of that edit.

Rockstar Editor Tips: Capturing Footage

Rockstar Editor Tips: Capturing Footage

Posted on May 22 2015, 5:16pm | Author: R* M | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Presenting the first in our series of tips devoted specifically to the Rockstar Editor, which is currently available exclusively with the PC version of GTAV and coming to the PS4 and Xbox One versions of the game in a forthcoming update. Today's feature focuses on advice for capturing footage, with info directly from the developers of the Editor, as well as effective examples from YouTube creators and Social Club members. And if you're searching for additional tips on some of the basics before attempting to craft a clip worthy of garnering top prize in the Rockstar Editor video contest currently running, you can always check out our tutorial pages on Social Club

Use filters to give your movie a unique style. Proper use of the available filters can change the whole look and feel giving your masterpiece a more polished look.

For a truly unique video, plan out your action before starting to record, just as any film director would. It’s very easy to record a Grenade Launcher rampage in Los Santos, and then add some slow-motion before you upload it – but a well-thought out sequence can set you apart from the crowd. And if something spontaneous happens, don’t forget you can always use the Action Replay feature to record it retroactively.

If you are shooting for a specific scene, make sure to take several takes of each scene (including one or two in First Person for extra editing options). The chances of the shot being ruined by a passing pedestrian or sound effect are far less if you have multiple takes! Of course, sometimes the ambient world can work to your advantage: when shooting, try to think of the random citizens of Los Santos as unpredictable extras in your scene, each one with flawless acting abilities. Their individual characteristics and reactions can contribute immensely to setting the scene and atmosphere. bugbutts' 'Being Trevor' focuses almost exclusively on the reaction of a bystander to great comedic effect.

In fact, the city and surrounding areas have so much life that you may not even need to be the star in your own movie. You could try a documentary, cinéma-vérité approach to capturing the essence of Los Santos. Get to know Southern San Andreas; it’s a big world out there.

While the camera must stay close to your game character for technical reasons, you can "cheat" this slightly by using stunt doubles. For instance, in 'Running, Man' by 8-Bit Bastardthis shot of Trevor running along the mountain ridge in front of the sunset is actually not the notorious Mr. Philips, but in fact a stunt double created in GTA Online. Clever editing makes the shot seamlessly fit into the narrative of the clip. You can transfer captured Editor footage between players, so collaborate with friends on large projects if that will save time, or allow you to circumvent camera limitations.

You can assemble a colorful array of characters using the Rockstar Editor's Director Mode. Each one comes complete with actions and short lines of dialogue.

In Director Mode, Settings such as Explosive Melee and Slidey Cars are fun to play around with for sure, but go easy on them unless it really adds something to your scene. 'Super Clown' by Boris The Blade is a great example of how the Super Jump Setting can be used to distort reality just enough to enhance the themes of fear and dread in a scene. Also, carefully consider the ideal Time of Day and Weather as this can add heaps of atmosphere to your project.

These are just a few tips for capturing footage, of course feel free to share any tricks of your own with the community in the comments below. Also, keep an eye out in the days ahead for some strategies on soundtrack and camera effects, and best of luck to all those attempting to achieve cinematic glory in the inaugural GTAV Rockstar Editor contest.


New Rockstar Verified Jobs: A 40-Story Deathmatch, Woodland Chaos, Body Snatching and More

Posted on May 14 2015, 12:12pm | Author: R* M | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Today, we have 10 brand new Rockstar Verified Jobs created by the Social Club community, stamped with the Rockstar seal of approval, and now live in-game for everyone to play across all five platforms - PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. Among them are some of the most unique and creatively themed Deathmatches, Captures, Last Team Standings and Races in the Verified collection to date. We've also Verified three bonus Races for PC, PS4 and Xbox One that were designed with support for larger lobbies and making use of the additional props placement that those systems make possible. Check out all the Jobs below and head over to Social Club to bookmark them, or find them in the Rockstar Verifieds section of the GTA Online in-game Pause menus.

10 New Verified Jobs available on all platforms

Chaos erupts in Forest Mayhem

 Forest Mayhem - Created by Titlito
Perhaps taking inspiration from his homeland's natural terrain, Switzerland's Titlito has created a chaotic and fast-paced Deathmatch for up to 10 players in a hilly section of dense forest just south of Paleto Bay. Tightly packed trees and boulders can make visibility tricky, particularly when players go off-piste around the side of the arena-style barriers. A narrow gulch separates the sides, which can make for some interesting opening exchanges, as each team tries to dominate the sides and make headway over the two bridges. Watch out when taking cover behind explosive containers - the centrally placed Grenade Launcher could prove your undoing.

 GTA: Stealing a Dead Person - Created by joeACdude43
"Martin Madrazo has ordered you to crash the funeral of recently deceased Forelli crime family member Johnny Pacino and steal his body so he can hold it for ransom." Two Teams go up against the grieving members of the Forelli gang to gain control of the Romero hearse carrying Johnny Pacino's last remains. The graveyard will become the centerpiece location as players shootout against NPCs to get behind the wheel of the hearse. It's a long way back to each Capture Point, and with each team driving Jackals for support, you can expect the body to change hands several times before it reaches its final destination. Tip: Two-handed weapons such as Assault Rifles can't be used while driving, so hustle to pick up one of the Micro SMGs for maximum versatility.

 RoC Santos - Created by D.A.R.K.N.E.S.S.
Mastery of the settings in the Race Creator can really change the look and feel of your Created Job. D.A.R.K.N.E.S.S., leader of the Reapers 0f Carnage Crew, has created a Race for Supercars set in the dead of night, with Traffic turned off. The effect is one of a classic streetcar race - Midnight Club style. Well-placed checkpoints make the route easy to follow, but intelligent prop placement make it challenging to master. There are classic hallmarks of street races, including a hairpin bend on the freeway and an awesome fast-paced jump to see you past the checkered flag. If you're way out in front and feeling confident, feel free to troll those in your wake with a flip through the finish line.

A forty-story fight breaks out in Triphasic

Triphasic - Created by DimiBarcelona
Catalonian YouTuber DimiMoon puts his own spin on a skyscraper-based Deathmatch: The three wings of the Arcadius building Downtown have been linked up with ‘bridges’ made from Shipping Containers. DimiMoon has clearly put a lot of effort into tweaking prop placement to get things aligned and stacked just right. There's a smart risk-vs.-reward balance at play as well – the most powerful weapon pickups are available to players brave enough to risk death and run across the top of the containers on top of the Arcadius business building. Oh - and watch out for Sticky Bombs.

 Contend: Gas 'N' Go - Created by Wraith-Of-Vern
has set up a Capture very similar in location to previously Verified Job "Contend: Zombie Town", but this has a radical departure in style. Key to victory will be stocking up on weapons while at your Team's Capture Point to prepare for the vicious battle for Bags at this rural gas station. This is very much a classic Contend-style Capture that requires each player to navigate asphalt and off-road terrain in intelligently-chosen vehicles. The gas station provides a strong focal point for the action to take place, with a few NPCs dotted around to keep things interesting.

 The Great Adventurer - Created by DeadRooster
of the illustrious GTA Adventures Crew delivers a fantastic high speed point-to-point for Supercars that takes in the scenery of Downtown Los Santos, the LS Freeway, Vinewood Hills, Grand Senora Desert and the Alamo Sea; all in a Race that can be completed by ace drivers in a little under 3 minutes, 30 seconds. We're glad to say that all of DeadRooster's creativity isn't totally spent on the Race itself, saving some for a Description as good as any that we've seen: "You've always claimed to be an outdoors person and that one day you're gonna climb Mt. Chiliad. Today your adventure finally begins. So here you are at Los Santos International Airport, in a super car paid for by your rich Liberty City mob boss father, heading to the base of the mountain the only way you know how; driving like an ass with no regard for the environment and those around you. Super car Race for up to 16 players from LSIA to the first dirt road north of the Alamo Sea."

 Life Invader Circuit - Created by The_Twilicane
 describes this one best: "Tight turns, narrow and wide roads, a smooth hairpin, and fast adrenaline pumping sections are sure to please those who are more serious about racing." This is a fairly simple Super car Race around Rockford Hills, Little Seoul and Vespucci. Props are placed well adding to the professional feel of the track without interfering with the route.

Cars go flying in Ramps! Ramps! Ramps!

 Ramps! Ramps! Ramps! - Created by GTA_Fan_82
This is a short track, set entirely on the bridge over Lago Zancudo. Players jump over small ramps as they criss-cross their way to the end of the bridge, before turning around and repeating the process in the opposite direction. There are sure to be lots of collisions and near-misses as the pack thins out and cars are flying into each other from different directions. Don't forget to flick down on the left analog stick in midair to maintain a level position for your car. Also, work hard to master the hairpins at either end, where there is prime opportunity for vindictive stragglers to knock you out of position.

Shotgun City - Created by Uniqueash
Shotgun City is a Last Team Standing that takes place in a dark alleyway beneath the Del Perro Pier. The alley is filled with Props at regular intervals, making for a very claustrophobic map which requires combined skills of stealth and timing. The Props provide plenty of cover allowing each team to advance forwards fairly safely - just as well since you’ve got to get very close to your enemy to kill them with the default Shotguns. Just one clean shot will do it - you may soon find yourself in a tense war of attrition where any false move will immediately be punished.

 Project Z Grand Prix - Created by Zenzi23
 is another dedicated racer, belonging to four different pre-eminent racing Crews including Verified Race Creator hotbed Red Rum Racing. Project Z is a Grand Prix style circuit requiring multiple skillsets to manage intricate technical sections, challenging high speed corners and hidden chicanes. Pick a car to match your skills whether you're a rally-style drifter, technical wizard on the racing line or you just prefer to throw caution to the wind and accelerate away from any trouble.


3 Bonus Races designed for PC, PS4 and Xbox One

 Casino Royale - Created by parksguard
Parksguard's penchant for racing is proven by his membership of two of the top racing Crews around: Nonchalant Dominance PS4 and Sweat Buckets. Combine this with the fact that 11 different versions of his newly Verified race Casino Royale have been published and it's no surprise that this memorable and exciting track is full of brilliant prop placement - clearly the work of a true perfectionist out to turn Mirror Park into a real racetrack.

 Cheetah Grand Prix - Created by gun1t123
Committed GTA racing luminary gun1t123 has put together a high speed Race for Super cars in the Downtown and Rockford Hills areas of Los Santos. We've seen many Races in these areas before but gun1t1233 (aka Shaggy) carved a unique route with props forming additional tight bends and chicanes. This is a Race that works brilliantly with a full lobby so gather your Crew together for a session and make sure to crank the number of Laps for the full experience. For a preview before you get involved, you can see a playthrough recorded by Shaggy himself.

 B.I.T.C.H. - Created by LadyMiss80s
As the description says, this Race has it all - Beach. Industrial. Track. City. Highway. Class act LadyMiss80s has created a lengthy Motorcycle Race across a number of different locations in LS. It's a difficult route, one which take several laps to truly master. Watch out in particular for high speed jumps into the Los Santos Storm Drain as well as a tight 270-degree turn / staircase combo. Long narrow sections along the train tracks are ideal for popping a wheelie in your Hakuchou and ripping past 29 other players all jostling for position.

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 multiple platforms, so you'll have all these newly Verified creations available in your next Freemode session (and you can always bookmark them at the Social Club for easy access in your next session).

Also – tune in tomorrow Friday May 15 at 5pm ET for a special Rockstar Games Twitch live stream where we'll be playing through all of the above Jobs with members of the Rockstar community including invited Creators themselves. Keep an eye on our Twitter, or join us in the Twitch chat for an opportunity to get involved in the lobby as a player.
