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 mouthoff@rockstargames.com  – 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.


NEW CREW MANAGEMENT FEATURES

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 gtaonline@rockstargames.com with your suggestions.


CAR MEETS GET SLAMMED

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.


ARTHOUSE CREWS

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.


CREATIVE R6 INC

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


REBL ONE YEAR CREW ANNIVERSARY

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.


CREW TOURNAMENT UNDERWAY: DETESTED FOUR BRACKET

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.

Sumo

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.

MESS WITH THE BULL - Hunter Tips

  • 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.

YOU GET THE HORNS - Rhino Tips

  • 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.

Crew Cut: A Look Back at 2015's Top Performers

Posted on January 19 2016, 11:44am | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

The Festive season has come and gone, with the final snows in GTA Online marking the end of another year of carnage on the blood-soaked streets of Los Santos and Blaine County. To help commemorate some of the great Crew-fueled activity of 2015, we're taking this opportunity to highlight top performing Crews in select categories for the latest edition of the Crew Cut.

Acknowledgement is also in order for the countless legions of Social Club Crews out there also doing great stuff in less quantifiable areas of creativity and competition - and look for continued features on these types of squads throughout 2016. But for now, feast on some cold, hard data we've collected about some equally cold, hard Crews.

ADVERSARY MODES: MOST WINS & KILLS
2015 brought the debut of Adversary Modes to GTA Online. Whether you're making Every Bullet Count, or teaming up with fellow Slashers to bring down the Beasts, communication is key when it comes to dominating the various Adversary Modes in GTA Online. Of course, the ability to rack up the kills doesn't hurt, particularly in Come Out To Play and Siege Mentality. 

LSRealGangsterPS4, PS4 Car Meets, Ganja Outlaws, GANG ALBANII AK47, The LowlyGentlemen and The Luckers prove this point with appearances on both sides of the board. Particular credit must go to NoDo PS4 whose 'Nonchalant Dominance' has them holding the #1 spot in wins, and second place for kills among all Crews.   


To account for variations in membership, we've averaged the figures in the table above by the headcount of each Crew.

TEAM DEATHMATCH: WINS & KILLS (PER MEMBER)
Team Deathmatches are all about body count, so it's no surprise to see one Crew holding down the top spot in both matches won and kills made. Merkalot, previously featured in the Cut for a video showcasing their incredible marksmanship, and only 24 members deep, racked up an average of over 80,000 kills per member on their way to winning 948 Team Deathmatches in 2015.

Shout to We Hate All CampersSuperioresVsupremacyAimfamily and CocoDrailS as well, who all have great showings on both sides of the board. And of course no surprise to see headshot maestros Last MESSIAH (and the aforementioned We Hate All Campers) make it in to the top 5 Kills Per Member standings.


RACES: WINS (PER MEMBER)
When it comes to racing the streets of Los Santos, the incredible performance by S CLASS PRO RACERS puts them head and shoulders above the competition with 2,496 wins - more than double the tally of their nearest competitor, Dominators 1. Notable YouTube collective Evolve Stunting (recently featured in this article about the GTA Online stunting scene from The Guardian) clock in at 5th, proving that they have more than just flashy stunts in their repertoire.   

SNAPMATIC: MOST LIKES
And while many come together specifically in the spirit of competition, there's also a long standing and thriving community on GTA Online with a specific eye for beauty and detail. We're continuously impressed by the ever-growing collection of fantastic and imaginative photos from the Snapmatic community and the thoughtful Crews that have formed around this pastime. Snapmatic stalwarts GTAPhotographers and Snapmatic Art would surely be disappointed at anything less than podium finishes on this list - congrats to both on living up to the name. Many other well-known Snapmatic Crews make up the rest of the list. Make sure to follow us on Twitter as we regularly highlight some of the best offerings from Crews such as Brothers of X, Efin Secsy Club and Loz Brutaloz and many more.




Sensational, sultry and in some cases subtle, here are just a few of many standout shots from the galleries of 2015’s most popular Snapmatic Crews. Taken by Crew members: wittyBlack-Mamba, VinewoodonfireMAKAVELl, Nemosphene, slimsy1901 and I_Miss_U_Liza.


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, hit us up at mouthoff@rockstargames.com and tell us all about it – you might see your Crew featured in an upcoming edition of the Crew Cut.

Fan Videos: Executives and Other Criminals Film Festival

Posted on January 6 2016, 11:23am | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Games

Check out videos from over the past few weeks posted by an award-winning Rockstar Editor director, a prominent Social Club Crew of redditors, and several YouTube stars, all of whom have been getting to grips with the wide range of content in GTA Online: Executives and Other Criminals. Whether they're manning the cannon on the Turreted Limo, getting a high profile Target to safety in Extraction or simply decompressing with some friends in the hot tub on a new Super Yacht, the videos below show off a good taste of the Executive lifestyle.


REBL - Yacht Parties [R* Editor] by REBL Community

Some may recall reddit based Crew REBL PC (formerly known as the Reddit Rebels) showing up in force to flaunt their GTA Online Lowriders. Now they bring their unique style to profile on the deck of their new Super Yacht, showing that when you’re on top and living lavish in Los Santos, it won’t be long until others come to try and spoil your suit. All set to the sweet and apropos sounds of Neon Indian’s “Change of Coast”.


Turreted Limo Cinematic Showcase (Commercial) | EXECUTIVES & OTHER CRIMINALS DLC by YEAHMAP

Envisioning the weaponized Benefactor Limo as a completely reasonable purchase option for your average consumer, renowned (and contest winning) Rockstar Editor filmmaker YEAHMAP put together this cheeky commercial spot to entice (and instigate) all would-be "Bosses".


GTA 5 Online Funny Moments - Yacht, Switch Blade, and New Apartments! (DLC) by VanossGaming

In a typically audacious outing, Vanoss is joined by frenemies Lui CalibreMoo SnuckelH2O Delirious, Wildcat and Silent Droidd for some patented Freemode shenanigans and hijinks - Executives style. Definitely watch to the end to see Vanoss straight-up hijacking Delirious' tour of his brand new Penthouse Apartment. 


GTA 5 - Declasse Mamba Cinematic [Car Showcase] by Keys Plz

Rockstar Editor director Keys Plz uses the in-game suite of video creation tools to put together this super sleek and stylish glimpse of the new Declasse Mamba Sports Classic. The custom "SUPRMACY" vanity plate is certainly a classy touch.


Grand Theft Auto V - The Executives by Berdu

Berdu has always made a point to include friends from the Full Leather Jackets Crew in his previously featured stylish films such as Marathon Men and Joyridin'. About this outing he muses, "This is how rich people actually live. All footage captured unscripted that one night when Kimble bought a god damn yacht. This is our Crew enjoying the Executives and Other Criminals DLC."


GTA 5 Online NEW Adversary Mode | EXTRACTION! (GTA 5 Online Gameplay) by iamfallfromgrace

Charming Aussie YouTuber, iamfallfromgrace tries her hand at the brand new Adversary Mode "Extraction". Taking on her own squad, the FallFromGraces Army Crew, Grace assumes the role of the "swagalicious" Target, making a harrowing escape in an attack Chopper after being pinned down by attackers. In the second round she plays as a Bodyguard and takes a clever shortcut off an overpass smoothly getting her VIP to the Extraction Zone. You should check out some of Grace’s previous Adversary Mode gameplay videos like “Every Bullet Counts” and “Running Back” as she always puts on a great show giving it all with her Crew.

In a truly cinematic sequence that rolls out as one mesmerizing continuous shot - properly indicative of its Vinewood setting - we see a dramatic final stand-off play out between a career criminal on his last legs and the resolute members of the LSPD. Armed to the teeth, facing overwhelming odds and in the midst of a torrential downpour, this makes for dramatic watching.
