Try your hand at these fun GTA Online Jobs, crafted by members of the amazing Creator community - featuring a collection of Captures (which will earn you Double RP through May 26th as part of the ongoing Capture Week), plus a Last Team Standing, a Race and a Team Deathmatch that all take place in and around Bolingbroke Penitentiary. Read on below for details on each of these brutal prison yard confrontations, including links to bookmark them for easy access during your next GTA Online play session.
Penitentiary Panicby madminer95(PC) "The prisoners are protesting on the roof of Bolingbroke Penitentiary but its quickly turning into a riot. Take this opportunity to compete with the enemy team to steal the prisoners' stashes of drugs in the ensuing chaos."
This Capture, sent to us by the Leader of the Facepalm Community Crew, will have you and your Teammates gunning down not only the opposing Team on your hunt for two Duffel Bags, but also Bolingbroke’s very own residents - the ornery Prisoners. With forced Assault Shotguns, you must make your way up to the roof, where the prisoners' stashes of drugs wait to be brought back to your Capture Point. Since the bags respawn when a drop-off is made, we recommended keeping several members of your Team camped out up top to snatch the newly spawned Duffel before the opposing Team can.
High Profile Transportby Caetano414 (Xbox 360 & Xbox One) "A high profile inmate is to be transported to Bolingbroke Penitentiary. Police have increased security to guarantee his arrival."
Caetano414 from the L S Police Dept Crew set this Capture up as an inmate convoy in jeopardy of being compromised. One Team plays the part of the couriers, driving or shepherding the Police Prison Bus containing the precious cargo. The other Team starts a little further away, and must intercept the transport before it makes it to the Penitentiary's yard. If you are on the transport Team, have one of your guys hop into the Bus while the rest pack into the adjacent Police Riot armored vehicle. The Police Riot will provide your Team with a safe vantage point to protect the transport.
This LTS has a rich array of cover options and ammo, necessitating strategic movement as you take out the enemy Team without putting your own single life in jeopardy. You’re going to want to play the long game in this match, as rushing the opposing team is sure to get you taken out in the yard. There are plenty of pick-up options in the form of Sawed-off Shotguns and AP Pistols, but a properly lobbed Grenade may be just what you need to circumnavigate the abundance of cover in this map.
FIB-Agent_0 has created a perfectly chaotic prison break in the form of this Capture in (and out) of Bolingbroke Penitentiary. Using Combat MGs, fight your way past Prisoners, Prison Guards, and the opposing Team to make your great escape. Only one of your Team needs to grab the Police Prison Bus and deliver it to your Capture Point, so have the rest of your Team grab up the RPGs and Miniguns to take out aerial and ground enemies, and provide cover fire for your fellow escapees.
This well-crafted TDM pits two rival prison gangs against each other in an epic battle for domination of the jail yard. With choices ranging from Advanced Rifles to Molotovs, make your way to the high ground for the best possible advantage for raining down mayhem on your enemies. In the video below, Stronktank of the Content Creators PS4 Crew shows how to own this atmospheric Deathmatch, with a ridiculous 10 kill streak straight out the gate, and an impressive 3.25 KDR.
Now that you’ve escaped the pen – it’s time for a victory lap in EvolDave’s off-road Land Race. With tumultuous turns and some deep trenches to navigate, the Creator warns “DO NOT USE A SANCHEZ OR BLAZER!!!”, as these will surely have you eating dirt. Another pro-tip from EvolDave – “Careful jumping across the trench, and duck when you go under the satellite dish.”

50% OFF EXPLOSIVES
Stock up on incendiaries from Ammu-Nation this week including Grenades, Sticky Bombs, Proximity Mines and Rockets to keep all your rivals at bay in Freemode.
Social Club members have been quick to experiment with the recent influx of stock at Benny's Original Motorworks and Ammu-Nation, creating new Jobs in GTA Online designed specifically for the Sabre Turbo Custom, Minivan Custom, Compact Rifle and more from Lowriders: Custom Classics. Read a little bit about the Jobs we've selected and bookmark them on Social Club via the links below, so that they're immediately ready to play next time you boot up GTA Online.
A far cry from your average car pool, you and your Minivan will have to survive a series of ramps and jumps, as well as enemy rockets in "Minivan Madness."
Take the Vapid Minivan Custom to the limit in this chaotic GTA Race from LOL_962. With over 70 created Jobs under the belt - the majority of which are Races - LOL_962 has put together this course on the runway of Sandy Shores Airfield. An array of ramps and obstacles, matched with the rocket fire of your opponents will test your Minivan Custom in a way that the drive to soccer practice never could.
There's a bad element down at the docks, and it's up to you to take it down in this Deathmatch at Elysian Fields. A fun map brought to you by S0CCER M0MS Leader, zombieninjapimp, that includes both Lowriders: Custom Classics weapons, the Slamvan Custom and, of course, the Custom Donk. There's a slew of options you can pick from to decimate the enemy. Lacking confidence in your aim? Hopping in your ride and taking a foe out by way of vehicular homicide is a lively alternative.
The Virgo Classic Custom is the star of the show in this Point to Point Land Race from a co-Lieutenant in the Banished Breed MC. This quick miler takes you through the back streets of neighborhoods like Pillbox Hill, Strawberry and Chamberlain Hills; be prepared for several twists and turns, but there's a nice payoff by way of a straight shot down Power St. to the finish line.
Deathmatch "War" will give you plenty of opportunites to get up close and personal with your opponents by way of the Double Barrel Shotgun.
Set in the sand and stone of Grand Senora Desert's Stone Cement Works, this Deathmatch from the CrazyBoysLS Crew's Leader takes advantage of the structure and layout of the industrial plant, and combines it with excellent prop placement - making for a thrilling and competitive map that features the weapons from Lowriders: Custom Classics. Insider tip: while you're battling on the ground, be mindful of potential sharpshooters from atop the central tower.
Dirty Lowridersby UniqueAsh(PS4) "Us Lowriders ride dirty, it's the only way we keep our eyes on the paper. Win, that's all you gotta do."
Already recognized for Creator excellence with a Verified LTS Job last May, UniqueAsh is back in the spotlight with a four mile Point To Point cruiser, giving racers the chance to show off their custom rides (the Dundreary Virgo Classic Custom handled particularly well when we tested this out). Take it through the streets of East Vinewood, the industrial back alleyways of La Mesa and many more hoods, culminating in a finish in the mecca of Lowrider culture: Grove Street.
One false move in "Monaco Slamvan GP" could land you straight in the Alamo Sea.
Attention to detail is obviously a strong suit for Content Creators PC member -Sins-, as exemplified in the painstaking recreation of the Circuit de Monaco, home to the iconic Monaco Grand Prix race since its inception in 1929. Though the setting of the dead center of the Alamo Sea is quite different from the city streets of Monte Carlo, and you're racing the new Slamvan Customs instead of F1 racecars, comparing -Sins-' map to that of the original you'll find them nearly identical. In some ways, this Race is more intense than the original, because in addition to avoiding collisions with your competition, going off track will have you headed into the unforgiving depths of the sea. Due to the plentiful turns, many of which seem to come out of nowhere and some in rapid succession, sometime it's the brakes and not accelerator that are your real friend. While you can pick virtually any car Class, make sure to choose Muscle to adhere to the Creator's original vision.
Creator darkgreenmeme of Kush Motorcycle Club made this tour around Elysian Island with the new Sabre Turbo Custom specifically in mind. Though there are some nice straight aways sprinkled in, there are plenty of sharp turns not meant for the green and will showcase the handling of the latest addition to Benny's inventory.
Harken back to the days of old school monster truck racing but this time with Lowrider twist in this Job from Dans ton Boulls Leader, leankilou33. Right off the bat, your Custom Donk will be forced to climb up a strenuous series of steps, before entering random man-made mazes in Downtown Vinewood, followed by a trip to the Up-N-Atom drive-thru and a full parking lot in East Vinewood, where the only free space is on the tops of burnt-out cars, ready to take further punishment via your over-sized tires. It's a bumpy ride, but one well worth taking.

CONTINUING TO ENHANCE THE GTA ONLINE EXPERIENCE: YOUR FEEDBACK ALWAYS NEEDED
And of course, expect all forthcoming Title Updates to continue improving and enhancing the GTA Online player experience. Thank you especially to the dedicated Creator community (shout out to ManOfFire and StronkTank) for sending us your feedback about a recent change to the Creator tool – a limit to how many props you could place close together was made to fix an issue where that would create a hole in the map. This change, however, prevents players from making some types of complex structures that clever Creators like metoxys have used to make inventive Jobs like “Ampersand”; we’re happy to report that we are working on a fix to allow such prop placement, while still preventing the map hole issue, so Creators please stay tuned for that. As a reminder to all, the best place to direct your feedback, including wish lists for future content and suggestions for fixes and changes, is to send it via email to the GTAOnline@rockstargames.com address, which the game’s development team routinely consults for consideration.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org – 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 email@example.com with your suggestions.
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:
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 ryophotolic, Wolf_Gang776, and ARIBABABAN. From 3D GIFs to stylized, cel-shaded style Snapmatics, RSIX's Crew Members are constantly looking to push the envelope.
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.
NEW INCH BY INCH ADVERSARY MODE COMING NEXT WEEK TUES APRIL 12
Prepare to fight tooth and nail for every scrap of progress in Inch By Inch - a new GTA Online Adversary Mode launching this coming Tuesday April 12th, that sees you competing for possession of a Package and clawing your way through a hail of bullets to reach your team's end zone. After each score, the action immediately resets - ensuring a frenetic and desperate battle of wits and skill. The player carrying the package cannot use their weapons, so tenacity and teamwork are required to advance towards the goal line. A burst of speed will help them make some ground, but only a constant barrage of support from their back-up will ensure their hard earned point.
In honor of the upcoming Inch by Inch Adversary Mode release, starting today we are offering double GTA$ & RP on a rotating Playlist of Adversary Modes that lasts all week long, which will include Inch By Inch when it launches on Tuesday. Once you've topped up your Maze bank account from the Playlist, head over to Ammu-Nation to take advantage of discounts on a range of weapons and maybe even pick up a few of the ones you've just unlocked with your Double RP earnings. Read on below for more details.
