Crew Cut: Top Stunting Crews, HBAG Nautical Adventures & More

Posted 3 weeks, 4 days ago | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

The Crew Cut highlights exceptional grassroots community activity, events, accomplishments and other happenings across the thriving Social Club Crew scene. If your Crew is doing something special that you think the Social Club community needs to know about, tell us all about it at - you might see your Crew featured in an upcoming edition of the Crew Cut. 

In the latest edition, check out Crews throwing grandiose car shows, real life boating with the Hillbilly Agenda, plus squads battling for supremacy in Stunt Races and enjoying all the fun and mayhem from their Further Adventures in Finance and Felony.  


Since the release of Cunning Stunts and the subsequent Stunt Race Creator, Crews far and wide have been competing for the bragging rights that come with being the most dominant Crew around. Speaking of dominance, Broughy1322's Nonchalant Dominance PC Crew has racked up a stunning 45,451 wins in Stunt Races containing 5 or more competitors. Close behind in 2nd place is NoDo's PS4 Crew with an impressive 39,664 Stunt Race wins, while Content Creators PS4 also joins them on the podium with almost 20,000 wins. Props also go to TROP2CREW, NiMu-11Crew, NoDo XB1, BOSSFTW ORGANIZATION, DSKHRACERS, DANIELOREP and BOSSFTW CORP, all of whom have smashed through the 10,000 Stunt Race wins barrier.

While it's clear who leads the way in terms of Stunt Race wins, Psycho Patriots lays claim to the highest win percentage overall, victorious in just a shade more than half the Races they compete in and almost double the win percentage of the average GTA Online racer. Just shy of that win rate is the formidable Advanced Crime Group with a solid 48% win rate, followed by UMAD Motorsports in the 3rd spot with 42%.


Schwiizer101 and The Luckers Crew have gotten fully organized, putting together a Finance and Felonies-inspired video and some choice Snapmatics to let the streets of Los Santos know their daily operation is open for business.

The Luckers have really gotten into the swing of things, using their corporate HQ as a solid base of operations for stocking their warehouses.


Crews also continue to coordinate and gather for other fun events and audacious outings in GTA Online. Here are just a few we've spotted as of late bringing the heat, several of whom are linked by the "low" life. 

MagnarHD and the REBL Crew wasted no time in hitting as many Cunning Stunts as possible with the update's release this summer.

No strangers to testing out the goods when new content comes out, our friends at REBL Crew got right to it with the release of Cunning Stunts. Leader MagnarHD was sure to get the fun the gang was having on video, loops, jumps, soccer balls and all - and at lots of great angles to boot.

The Lowly Gentleman celebrate two years of getting down and classy.

The ever versatile TheLowlyGentlemen, well-recognized here at the Newswire for everything from Snapmatics to all-star car meets, recently celebrated two years as a close-knit and prolific vehicle-based Crew. Member LS_Drifts commemorated this milestone by capturing an anniversary meetup, shot over three different sessions with ninety Gentlemen and a wealth of cars represented. Also worth mentioning is this beautiful vid from Ferino Design, whose slick and stylish video presentations you may remember going as far back as before the release of GTAV. This time, Ferino documents his time spent with TLG (which he refers to as the "#1 Stance and Crew Meet group on GTA Online") back in the summer of 2015. Coining this presentation as his "strike back" after a long hiatus, it covers the events and outings of an entire summer Ferino spent covertly shooting at every big Crew meetup and nostalgically ties together the very best moments of camaraderie, beauty and cars the summer of 2015 with TLG had to offer.

Another one from LS Drifts, this time taking it slow-n-low with Stance Department DE.

Drifts has been quite generous with his talents, putting out this video with German-based Stance Department DE. Comprised of several TLG members, STDP has been busy since their founding in July, covering several of their car and truck meets on their official YouTube channel.

CoreGaming made their debut on the Newswire last August and have been going strong all through 2016.

CoreGaming PS4 - led by none other than Daniel1Plainview - celebrated their one year anniversary in grand fashion, collaborating with musician Laszlo to put together this cool presentation capturing the cool vibe and bond of the Crew. Members can even log into CoreGaming's website to sign the Crew's official yearbook for posterity.   

Hillbilly Agenda - ON A BOAT!

Crew Leader Knoxnerd and the tight-knit collective known as the Hillbilly Agenda have established an ongoing legacy of real-world meetups over the last two years. Knox reached out to let us know the squad now has an official Crew boat, exclusively available for members to take out for a ride. Bearing resemblance to a real life Shitzu Tropic, this Sea Ray SRV220 featuring a V-cabin and a mean inboard V6 is docked in Lake Norris, TN and has been prepped by fellow Crew member and boat mechanic Stokes1214.

To showcase the fun group outings on this mighty vessel, Hillbilly Agenda has created an official Boat Page on their website and even put together an elaborate Boat Operating Manual to ensure that she's handled responsibly by guests.


It's been a while since we've checked in with the Off-Road All-Stars, but in that time they've ramped up their squad with a number of new members and taken on a fresh Leader in Stevedogg51, who has long been their head coordinator for all ROAR Racing events and recruitment. The All-Stars now have a number of great events planned and are working hard to involve other notable Racing Crews, such as Cloud9 Racing and Van Society, to participate in everything from custom rallies with "a little off-road twist," to new circuits that mirror real life championships. As always, event streams are broadcast in cinematic view with full commentary, so nothing is missed. Here are a couple of standouts from ROAR's revamping:

"Modern day motor racing is about speed, precision and foremost safety (Yawn). In the “Stirling Cup” we take a nostalgic trip back in time, before the clipboard and crash helmet were invented. A time where a leather flight cap and some goggles were enough to protect you from the hard tarmac and inevitable fireball should you flip your vehicle into a crowd of tweed dressed spectators, smoking pipes and checking their pocket watches." - Stevedogg51

A favorite amongst members and participating Crews alike has been the ROAR Stirling Cup Rally, which is raced exclusively in the Stirling GT. With a Le Mans-style standing start, this circuit requires players to line up vehicles in qualifying time order and run to them on cue. The fastest qualifiers have the least distance to run, as shown in the video above. Described as a "clean" and nostalgic endurance racing event that introduces new tactics to GTA Online racing, this circuit also allows slipstreaming so that players can work together on straightaways to gain faster lap times and catch up to the leaders.

ROAR is also pleased to announce the second season of the ROAR Rally Championship. With twelve all new stages and vehicles, this action-packed circuit retains an authentic Rally Championship feel and is open to all Crews and all drivers. This season will include the Sultan RS and Warrener and drivers will once again be able to choose their favorite cars from the Sports class. Stages will be time-based with a standard points system, calling for competitors to establish their fastest lap time in the course and then submit a picture of their time to Crew leaders over a two week period.

Crew Cut: Custom Classics Car Meets, Arthouse Collectives & More

Posted on April 21 2016, 10:45am | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

The Crew Cut highlights exceptional grassroots community activity, events, accomplishments and other happenings across the thriving Social Club Crew scene. If your Crew is doing something special that you think the Social Club community needs to know about, tell us all about it at  – you might see your Crew featured in an upcoming edition of the Crew Cut.

This week, check out Crews who have been actively hosting Car Meets to show off their latest customized Lowriders, a spotlight on prominent arthouse collective Crews, a currently active grassroots tournament and more.


First off, we’d like to let all you Crew Leaders, Commissioners and Muscle alike know that there are some new oft-requested updates to the Crew Management page on Social Club, adding the ability to filter Friends and Crew Hierarchies by Online Service (e.g. PSN, XBL or Facebook), and search by Gamertag / PSN ID within them.

We've also made it easier for you to see other Crew Members’ Gamertags / PSN IDs and Active Crews when managing the Crew Hierarchy. It's now much simpler to promote or demote Crew Members, review pending Join Requests and scan for applicants playing on a particular platform. If there are any further improvements you'd like to see made to Crew Management or any other aspect of GTA Online, be sure to hit us up at with your suggestions.


GKstance98 and his PS4-based Crew, Stance Lovers Only, rallied together to show the Slamvan some serious love at a recent car meet. Be sure to keep an eye on Power GK's YouTube channel for upcoming live streams of Stance Lovers Only's car meets.

RL.Angel and the G A N G S T A N C E Crew held one of their recent car meets on a hazy day out at Vespucci Beach; see a glimpse above cozying up close to the interior dash and hydraulics of the Vapid Slamvan via the Rockstar Editor.

Then there's AZcrAZydog from the Xbox One chapter of the reddit-based GTAAdventures Crew, who injected some aerial stunting and a raucous demolition derby into their Lowriders Meet before scaling Mount Chiliad in their Willard Faction Custom Donks.

Never ones to shy from their ongoing obsession with dropped vehicles, TheLowlyGentlemen Crew recently went all out to celebrate the new Custom Classic Vapid Slamvan at an official car meet. Pimping out their rides with every imaginable livery and color variation, and driving models that appear both antique and fully refurbished, TheLowlyGentlemen stay true to their name in this stylish video.

If you and your Crew have some awesome Lowriders Custom Classics car meet footage or Snaps, share ‘em in comments below.


Beyond some of the pre-eminent and long-standing Snapmatic Crews such as Snapography and GTAPhotographers, we wanted to shine a light on some other Crews that have been pushing the creative boundaries of the medium from pure photography into something best described as "Snapmatic Art." Using Snapmatics as a source asset, these Crews take Snapmatics to the next level by applying creative photo editing, experimenting and innovating with in-game Meme Text, creating original images with bullets and even applying their own coloring techniques and illustration skills to existing photos.

Presenting two particularly prolific arthouse collective Crews whose members inspire and innovate day in and day out:

The Magnificent Team

Referring to themselves as an "exclusive Snapmatic movement," The Magnificent Team have attracted the likes of prestigious Snapographers Basimatic, Sariska and FirewoodDog,meme art manipulator xX19scorpius83Xx and bullet art maestro aizakkusan to their ranks. With a booming community on Twitter and Instagram, a special congratulations goes out to TMGT (and their fearless leader empiretimes aka Snaplord_TMT) as they recently celebrated their one-year anniversary. Here’s just a scant bit of some of the talent among their 100+ member roster.


xX19scorpius83Xx makes clever use of filters and layering techniques to create stunning scenes and an amusing hand-drawn self-portrait in the Meme Text editor. 


An unconventional marksman, aizakkusan's amazing work with bullets involves carving out everything from familiar faces to pop icons, and even a spot on recreation of their affiliate Crew Visual Moods Central's emblem. 

TMGT member Basimatic is an accomplished Snapmatic photographer, Rockstar Editor and much more – here, she camped out and photographed the same vista across several times of day and night to display a stunning color palette along the LS skyline. You’re going to want to follow her on Twitter to keep up with the amazing things she shares every day.


Another artistic collective impressing on a daily basis is mitar0su's CREATIVE R6 INC, housing incredible talents such as ryophotolicWolf_Gang776, and ARIBABABAN. From 3D GIFs to stylized, cel-shaded style Snapmatics, RSIX's Crew Members are constantly looking to push the envelope.


You can find more eye-catching work like this on ryophotolic's official Twitter account, and additional artwork and snaps at #creativeR6inc.

Yu-nosuke aka TeamGoliath_RP applied some eye-catching filters on this shot showing off the new Compact Rifle that makes for the look of a fully sketched color pencil drawing.

Gorgeous and creative car photography is also a specialty; enjoy this stunning play on the color spectrum in this piece by R6 member mitar0su


Another prominent Crew celebrating their one-year is REBL PC. These guys have consistently impressed with fun presentations like their REBL - GTA Yacht Parties and REBL - The Lowriders. In this Crew video, the REBLs have an absolute free-for-all blast, engaging in a massive Karin Rebel demolition derby and shooting fireworks from the top of the Rebel Radio station to celebrate their first anniversary in true REBL style.


CHEEkSx0x0 of the battle Crew Detested reached out recently to let us know they are hosting a Free Aim (PS4) tournament, and have been working exhaustively to put together elite Crews for the first round such as ineffable arts, CAP PILLAS, Cureless Aim and the Temple Drive Ballas. Tournament rounds will be routinely streamed on the BAETRED | RED7 YouTube channel, along with highlights of best moments. Upcoming Crew brackets are posted in the video description here. Contact PreciousYvette @ kik or yv.xo Baetred @ kik .babez for further details.

Round 1 Results: In the first round, 7DeadlyGlobalHiTaz took a narrow, one-kill lead against The Classic Crew, but DOPE turned it around considerably in the second round to take the match win. Cureless Aim soundly trounced The Damned Brotherhood in the initial round, but faced a disqualification for breaking agreed-upon tournament rules. Finally, the Temple Drive Ballas squared off against Baggy Nation, squashing and shutting down their opponents in both rounds for an uncontestable win.

GTA Online Game Tips: Sumo, Rhino Hunt & Drop Zone

Posted on April 11 2016, 10:35am | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Games

Sumo-style derbies have long been a GTA Online fan favorite, with many Community creators taking it upon themselves to create their own interpretation of the heavyweight sport. Now, we’ve added a bit of method to the madness with the introduction of Sumo, one of our latest Adversary Modes. And the recently released Rhino Hunt introduces some new and fun challenges for those who truly enjoy the thrill of the hunt, while Drop Zone features teams airdropping to battle over a contested area. Whether you’re a big game hunter seeking out a well-armored challenger, a mighty behemoth crushing your adversaries via tank tread, or a vengeful skydiver looking to rain down death from above – we’ve put together the latest series of tips to help you establish dominance in the wild kingdom otherwise known as Los Santos. Take note especially of the Rhino Hunt tips today, as they'll certainly come in handy as you capitalize on today's Double GTA$ and Double RP Adversary Mode Playlist.

Using reverse and sharply turning can trick your opponent into driving out of the area completely.


While the sport of Sumo is typically a mano-a-mano match up, this Adversary Mode is all about how you perform, not only solo, but as a team (depending on which variation you find yourself playing). In either case, you must first choose your vehicle carefully: each has its advantages and weaknesses. Large, heavy vehicles have ramming power, but their higher center of gravity may leave them more vulnerable to being scooped by vehicles with a low hood. Smaller cars are more easily able to squeeze out of tight spots, but can be overwhelmed.
If you're playing on a team, you may choose a combination of vehicles. You could use the smaller, quicker vehicles to lure opponents to the edge of the map before more robust teammates deliver the killer blow. You may often see two cars deadlocked against each other in a war of attrition; supporting your teammate with a nudge from behind can tip the scales, but runs the risk of seeing them go over the edge as well as your enemy. Of course, if you have the players to spare, sacrificing a team mate could be the smart decision. If you’ve found yourself in one of these face-to-face (or bumper-to-bumper) pushing matches – using reverse and sharply turning can trick your opponent into driving out of the area completely. Alternatively, if you’re determined to win the push war, remember to properly manage your power; coming off the throttle ever so slightly to allow your tires to find traction provides much more pushing power than going pedal-to-the-metal and wheel spinning.

Sacrificing a team mate can be a clever way of taking out an opponent if you have the players to spare.
  • If you're playing solo, don’t always drive at full speed when trying to push your opponent out. Vehicles in Sumo have the handbrake disabled, so it takes a lot longer to stop your charge if you miss them. Try to think strategically instead of relying strictly on brute force; watch your opponent's patterns of movement so that you can anticipate where they are headed next. By the same token, try to be unpredictable!
  • Make use of the terrain around you; some parts of the arena will see more casualties than others. Establish the safest point in the arena and keep close to it to stay out of trouble. On larger maps, the center of the area is best to reduce your chances of being knocked off.
  • If it’s looking like a stalemate, there is a sudden death area that will appear after normal game time. Try to control the center of the play area as quickly as possible, as the area will become smaller and smaller as time ticks down. Last player left in the center wins!

Rhino Hunt

As the nimble Hunters, your lives are dispensable but your time to bring down your prey is limited. The lumbering Rhinos are afforded no such luxury, as they are granted a single life to survive the duration of the 3 minute round. Powerful, but slow to aim and maneuver, savvy Hunters will use their superior speed to get around the Rhino's cannons in a nuanced dance of death and destruction.

The Rhino will suffer a greater amount of damage when attacked from behind.


  • Depending on Sticky Bomb placement, Rhinos can be destroyed with 7 to 10 well thrown detonations. The Rhinos take more structural damage from the rear so exhibit patience when aiming if you have the time and the means to land a calculated shot.
  • Hunters have strength in numbers, so use this to your advantage. Coordinate your attacks to come from all directions; someone is bound to breach the Rhino's defenses and hit the target. Sacrifice equals victory.
  • To the point above: the Rhinos have strict area bounds, but the Hunters don't. Consider taking the scenic route to surprise them.
  • Sticky Bombs can be detonated at any time (as long as you're alive); consider luring the Rhino into a trap or placing down Sticky Bombs in high traffic areas ahead of time.
  • Similar to Adversary Mode Come Out To Play, make sure to cut off your lights when playing at night, as the Rhinos will have more trouble getting a bead on you in the darkness.
  • Hunters, use your environment to your advantage: make full use of obstacles and small structures in order to hinder the Rhinos or better, to get them hung up and stuck, making them stationary targets.
  • Multiple Sticky Bombs can be placed and detonated at once, so a Hunter can deal massive amounts of damage to a Rhino with one detonation, given the chance. Load one of your fellow Hunters up with Sticky Bombs and send them kamikaze-style towards the target.

Holding your ground and digging in with a fellow Rhino may be your best bet when squaring off against multiple enemies.


  • When there are two Rhinos (six or more players in the mode), you need to work in tandem to cover a wider firing area. This can be carried out as a two man patrol in a set area, where both Rhino drivers circle about looking for prospective targets, or you can take the opposite approach and fortify your position by parking side-by-side and covering each other's backs. The latter approach requires a bit of trust in your partner's aiming abilities to ensure victory.
  • Want to play as the Rhino in the next round? Make sure that you deal the killing blow and the victorious Hunter will become the Hunted.
  • The Rhino doesn't merely have a cannon as its only means of defense; try running over your opponents if you're cornered. You can also use the ramps in the play area to gain a momentary aerial advantage. A Rhino launching off a ramp and crashing down is not something a Hunter wants to see above them. That said, you can sustain damage from direct vehicle impacts or explosions, so be cautious when your vehicle damage bar is low.
  • Be constantly on guard, checking all sides as the Hunters will be trying to approach you from every angle. Staying out in the open gives you a full 360 degree view but backing against a wall or into an enclosure funnels the Hunters into a guaranteed approach, putting them at a disadvantage.
  • Beware of going out of bounds, as you will only have 15 seconds to return to the battlefield.
  • If you are riding solo, don't get cornered or remain stationary, staying mobile makes you a tougher target to hit.

Drop Zone

If incoming enemy paratroopers are too far away to shoot, aim for their canopy to send them off course.

Adrenaline junkies will enjoy one of our faster-paced Adversary Modes, Drop Zone. Barrel through the air at top speed with your team towards the demarcated area and lock it down for as long as you can.

  • While holding down the fort, keep on the move as a strategically placed Sniper bullet to the head could be just around the corner.
  • Although your bar increases quicker if you have more team members inside the smoke, there are plenty of tactical opportunities to be had by staying just out of sight with a long-range weapon so you can better provide cover fire and draw away the enemy from your team.
  • To the point above, this also enables you to cover for fallen comrades and make a dash for the smoke, to keep the bar filling whilst waiting for their return to the battlefield.
  • You'll be taking a lot of hits when you're out in the open, so make strategic runs to pick up health and armor in between attacks.
  • Players within the zone can also stave off incoming enemies by shooting their Parachutes and thus turning them around or pushing them away from their intended target.
  • For those unlucky enough to have their chute gunned down, quickly detach and open your reserve to save you time trying to run back to the area.

Rhino Hunt: New Adversary Mode in GTA Online

Rhino Hunt: New Adversary Mode in GTA Online

Posted on February 26 2016, 7:21am | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Games

Rhino Hunt - a brand new GTA Online Adversary Mode - is now available in-game. This is a battle of the nimble and numerous against the mighty but few, as a team of Sticky Bomb-wielding Hunters in dune buggies and other vehicles seek to take down one or two of the biggest and most elusive game in Southern San Andreas. Rhino drivers must utilize the sheer strength and firepower of their tank to survive against the onslaught of Sticky Bombs thrown in their direction.
You can play this new Adversary Mode in three different locations (selectable via the Adversary Modes section of the GTA Online pause menus) or launch a Playlist featuring three locales by hitting the button when prompted on the GTAV launch screens.
Keep an eye out for an announcement later today on the Rockstar Newswire about special Rhino Hunt bonuses and more.

From Rockstar Editor powered odes to the Albany Roosevelt Valor to mini romantic comedies costume designed in Fedoras and Bustiers – and hilarious Let’s Plays of the latest Adversary Mode “Till Death Do Us Part” – check out this special round up of fun, fan-created videos featuring the recently released Be My Valentine content, which will remain available in GTA Online.

Grand Theft Auto V - Original Gangsters by Berdu

Berdu and his band of good fellas, The Valentines, remind the modern-day gangs of Los Santos where it all began in this short film titled "Original Gangsters".

Grand Theft Auto V - My Babe (Be My Valentine MACHINIMA) by MrSrdaro

To the tune of Little Walter’s 1955 classic “My Babe”, Los Santos' answer to Bonnie & Clyde goes on a vintage crime spree. MrSrdaro says, "It ended pretty bad for the Roosevelt Valor, but we've managed to escape the law in a smooth way, after all that's what a couple would do."

NEW Vehicle, Sexy Underwear & More! by iamfallfromgrace

iamfallfromgrace charmingly checks out the new Outfits & Masks from Be My Valentine, along with a comprehensive look at the customization options on the Albany Roosevelt Valor (not to mention the recently released Banshee 900R as well). As grace herself would say: "Duuuude, so sick".

'Til Death Do Us Part! (ft. Sips) by Hat Films

One of several very fun Let’s Plays and livestreams of the latest Adversary Mode, Till Death Do Us Part, is this clip from the lads at Hat Films and their pal Sips. Watch out for "wank 'n' flank" as they get to grips with all five of the mode's maps. Also check out our friends Kevin LaSean (fka Xpert Thief) and RealRosesAreRed team up and throw down in their session of Till Death Do Us Part as well.


Vinewood Motors does his own remix of the official GTA Online: Be My Valentine trailer. Glad to see the ushers are taking care of the happy couple even after they leave the church.

How To Valentine (PS4 Rockstar Editor) by Lu Iggy

Lu Iggy and friends have got the gun and the car, but sadly the clothes to complete the look were shed somewhere along the way in this short but amusing little vignette.

Cue up the violins with sin2934 and the Creative R6 Inc Crew, well known to the GTA Twitter community for their consistently strong output of excellent Snapmatics and other inspired digital creations. Here, dapper dons and fierce femmes mob the streets of Los Santos for a classic feast of the saints. Would-be Don Fanuccis: watch your back.

Ever consider taking your Valor out for a tandem drifting session in Los Santos? bee.1108 and friend show how it's done in this Rockstar Editor powered clip set to "Trouble" off the Welcome to Los Santos album.
