The Crew Noticeboard is our featured column of Crews actively recruiting new members to join their ranks. We publish Crew recruitment pitches in their own words so that you know exactly what they're all about.
This edition of the Crew Noticeboard features femme fatales, Mafia hitmen and undead MCs. So if you're a player who is new to the world of Los Santos & Blaine County or a veteran looking to expand into something new you're sure to find it here or by browsing one of the previous editions of Crew Noticeboard.
6 Star Street Racers, captained by prolific YouTuberGTA-Wise-Guy, have really stepped up their game since first being mentioned on the Crew Noticeboard a little over a year ago. Having now accumulated close to 900 members, they've recently set their sights on PC as their leading platform, using the Rockstar Editor to not only craft a kick-ass Crew promo video but also to highlight their first official PC Car Meet shown above. Describing themselves as "tight-knit", they do everything from sitting back and relaxing at car meets to pushing cars to their limits while weaving through heavy traffic. Within all of that they encourage the members gathering at these meets to pick a specialty and put them into five distinct categories:
Speedster: High speed thrill seekers and masters of the race track.
Drifter: Driving in pure style.
Tuner: Building the perfect ride is everything.
Antagonizer: Rally with other crew members to wage war on rivals.
Outlaw: Become the most wanted.
The CoreGaming PS4 Crew (no prizes for guessing which platform they play on!) are a decidedly smaller collective of like-minded gamers. Despite their modest size, the roster is filled with names that might be familiar to Newswire readers for creative efforts behind the wheel and beyond... Lorzatrol was featured shortly after the launch of GTA Online Heists for her sweet shot of the Lampadati Casco, while her Crew mate zummere20 has taken the bullet art phenomenon in a new direction, using vehicles as the canvas. Finally there's video editor xiRoNiCzZ who gave Crew Cut alumni SolTezRobo Racing a hand on this promo video. For all intents and purposes, CoreGaming appear to be a great bunch to compare notes with when you're looking to trick out your favorite ride. Definitely check out their Instagram for several excellent Snapmatic car meet shots as well. And if you'd like to take part in one of their upcoming drift competitions check out their latest competition promo video and official website for further details.
On a clear summer day the rGTAV Cruisers behind the wheels of this sick line of custom whips have a great view of the LSIA Control Tower.
Last but certainly not least, there's Reddit based Crew rGTAV Cruises who are absolutely killing it with this full album of vivid photos from their latest Crew car meet event put together by Soloz. Members like trackmania101 are pretty handy on the video editing promos as well but in this case we thought we'd let a few of these gorgeous shots paint the picture of how well the attendance for their latest "sun up to sun down" gathering turned out.
From the sandy beaches of Del Perro to the glittering nightlife in East Vinewood this Crew really knows how to turn heads.

Midnight Club: LA by blinkydude(PC) This Point-to-Point Race, created by Blink 182 Crew member blinkydude, takes you on a ride down Vinewood Blvd. and lands you right off Sam Austin Drive. Keep the Time of Day set to Night and Vehicle Class on Super to give this race the most authentic homage to Midnight Club: Los Angeles. While the Race may seem to be relatively straightforward, missing the hidden finish line could cost you the win. As you make your way down Sam Austin Drive, head into the gates of the last mansion on the left and drive straight into its garage for your photo finish.
The Midnight Club by DJxDONUTS(Xbox 360 & Xbox One) This race by OFFICIAL CIA member DJxDONUTS takes us on an exciting rainy night ride from Pillbox Hill to Del Perro Beach. Filled with tons of challenging twists and turns, you would never guess that this is only the second race made by this creator. While you're zooming your way through the streets of Los Santos, heed warning: the final jump to the finish line could drop you straight into treacherous waters, thus costing you the race. As you fly through the air, lean your car to the right so as not to miss out on your big win.
The LS Midnight Club III by AleNann95 (PS3 & PS4) The creator of this Lap-based Race advises that "Speed and Skill are the requirement to arrive 1st". Lined with well-placed carriages, ramps and tight corners through the nightlife of Los Santos, you'll need all your driving tricks to win here. Stick to the Sports vehicle class and night-time default – then fill the lobby and enjoy this nostalgic neon run.
Twisted Warehouse by Oblivion2500(PC) “Old Train Station by Water River inspired by Manhunt.” This LTS created by DERP Enterprise member Oblivion2500 takes place in Downtown Los Santos around the abandoned warehouses between Vespucci Blvd. and San Andreas Ave. Finding a non-melee weapon is the key to victory, but can be tricky. A lone Heavy Sniper is hidden inside the warehouse, and has a handy window nearby to scope out your enemies. Alternately, you can make your way to the east side of the map to grab up the Sawed-Off Shotgun. Knowing the location of the best weapons is one thing, surviving the trip is another…
Manhunt LSby goon_taylor(Xbox 360 & Xbox One) “Stab, chop and shoot your way freedom” in this fast paced Deathmatch created by the leader of The Fiendish Fellows. This Job takes place at the construction site located on the corner of Alta St. and Vespucci Blvd. - giving it a real abandoned apartment complex feel. The map is mostly filled with melee weapons but if you head towards the center you may find yourself in possession of one of the two Sawed-Off Shotguns. Don’t get too comfortable taking cover as the Spawn Points in this Job are spread out all over the map and you may soon feel the cold press of a Pistol to the back of your skull.
Manhunt by M0NZT3R_COX(PS3 & PS4) The Crew Leader of M0NZT3R made this melee Deathmatch map as a "Tribute to the infamous James Earl Cash". Atmospheric from the get-go, the crumbling indoor set up creates a claustrophobic tone, with dark, enclosed spaces and tight corners illuminated with foreboding red lights to navigate around. There's plenty of melee weapons to protect yourself with, but surprises can leap from the shadows in the dim lighting. The Job has been created with strategically-placed Dumpsters and Concrete Blocks creating a maze-like arena that amps up the tension.
Taking the explosive leap in NO_FUN_ALLOWED's Smuggler's Run land race
Smuggler's Runby NO_FUN_ALLOWED(PC) Part of Smuggler's Run's enduring appeal is the plethora of vehicles at your disposal during your lucrative career as a cargo smuggler. Single Dads' Crew member, NO_FUN_ALLOWED has created a Job with all of these options and more, including Coupes, Dune Buggies, Off-Road heavies and Motorcycles. Racing from the Palomino Highlands to the Pacific Ocean, the Point-to-Point track puts you against up to 10 players along dirt tracks and cliff-top paths. When played as a GTA Race there are a variety weapons and Pick-Ups to collect along the way, but you'll need quick reflexes and a good aim to pick your opponents off.
Smuggler's Run by grey1225(PS3 & PS4) Delivering illegal contraband requires navigating sharp twists and challenging ramps in this Lap-based Race from Manhunt Executioners member, grey1225. With a vast range of vehicle classes to choose from, including Motorcycles, Muscle cars, Off-Road vehicles, Sedans, Sports Classics and SUVs, you'll be thrown in to a Race that combines steady supplies of rockets against some steep cliffs edges and narrow turns. This one also covers a good mix of landscapes giving those of you that like to mix your roads a decent taster of different tracks.
Smuggler's Run by The_Greenhorn(Xbox 360 & Xbox One) This two team Capture, created by the leader of The Greenhorn Crew, harks back to the Turf War missions of Smuggler's Run by pitting you against a rival gang, as you fight to capture a briefcase of precious cargo. Delivering the goods back to your Capture Point is the aim but in between the two camps and surrounding the payload is the local law enforcement, keen to stop you in your tracks from either land or air. The map is played on rocky, desert terrain, but you'll be supplied with Off-Road vehicles to make your way to the center of the map. However, with bullets flying fast through the air and danger from all sides, be careful not to get caught in the mayhem.
If you've spotted or created an epic GTA Online Job themed around one of our games, a certain mission or even your favorite movie, be sure to tag it #throwback on Social Club and drop us a link either here in the comments or via Mouthoff, so we can check it out.
The grand finale in our lineup of GTA Online Double GTA$ & RP Heist bonuses kicks off today and lasts through the weekend with the biggest score of them all: the daring assault on the vaults of the Pacific Standard Public Deposit Bank.

And these Double GTA$ & RP bonuses extend to the Elite Challenges as well, so finish the Finale in under 10:15, avoid having NOOSE called and make sure nobody gets wasted to reap some serious rewards.

As part of the ILL-GOTTEN GAINS Update Part 2, creators were given the ability to make their own GTA Online Jobs within the heavily guarded confines of Los Santos International Airport and the Fort Zancudo Military Base. Check out below a few impressive Jobs created at LSIA and Fort Zancudo so far, from frantic Deathmatches to an expertly designed karting track. Read the descriptions below and be sure to bookmark them on Social Club for the next time you jump into GTA Online. If you're a keen creator who's made a masterpiece at these locales as well, please drop a link to it in the comments section below for the Social Club community to check out. And also tune in this Friday at 5pm ET at twitch.tv/rockstargames for a special creator's livestream where we'll be playing these Jobs with invited creators and more.
Zancudo Team Death Match by Drogom(PS3 & PS4) Drogom, member of the X Assassinos Frios X Crew, put together this cover-heavy Team Deathmatch on the north side of Fort Zancudo. The layout of this match is a fenced in, close quarters playground of mayhem. With your choice of MGs, Advanced Rifles, Assault Shotguns, Heavy Snipers, and a few tactical Grenade Launcher and RPG placements, you won't be short on firepower. This Job provides tons of cover options in the form of walls, burned out vehicles and Sand Block Forts. The elevated areas give you a perfect vantage point to snipe your enemies while the rest of your team goes to work on the ground. You may be tempted to make a run for the two Health and Armor points in the center of the map, but tread carefully – one RPG hit to the Large Gas Tank in the center could blow you sky high, so your best bet is to make sure the Tank is detonated before you venture out.
Zancudo Zancrudoby srethrennate (Xbox 360 & Xbox One) "Race around Fort Zancudo! Don't crash into the locals. They tend to shoot people." Sage advice from srethrennate, Leader of the Reborn Yoloboxers Crew - the locals are definitely ornery in this action-packed GTA Race that feels more like an all-out war. As you wind your way through the military base, you'll be attacked from all angles by soldiers and competitors alike. To save your ride and your hide, be sure your vehicle is outfitted with Bulletproof Tires in preparation for this mad-cap dash.
Tranchées véhiculéesby ProfGenki95 (PC) ProfGenki95 has already created tons of fun Jobs on PC and this Race definitely shows that practice does indeed make perfect. Most of this GTA Race takes place in the tight, narrow, walled-in outskirts of Fort Zancudo, giving players the unique opportunity to wall ride as they make their way through the course (this can be helpful when attempting to dodge the randomly placed Gas Cylinders and Explosive Barrels). There are tons of Boosts and Rockets scattered throughout the route but be mindful of where you're shooting – a blown-up vehicle can quickly cause a pileup in the narrow raceway.
Bifta Kart Track 2by blockgod94 (PS3 & PS4) The leader of the Xylophone Vulture Crew is responsible for this sprint-heavy kart race, set just inside the guard post at Los Santos International Airport. The default setting of 1 lap is all you need as you maneuver your Bifta around the meticulously laid out Large Tire Wall course. With the addition of the Oak and Olive Trees, this is a bonafide throwback to classic amusement parks.
LSIA GPby Echo0712 (Xbox 360 & Xbox One) Echo0712 of the BLAZIN PROSPECTS knows a thing or two about creating a Grand Prix - having created 25 of them so far in GTA Online. LSIA GP is not only well designed, but creative to boot, with Fruit Stands filled with Health Packs to mimic race Pit Stops. You can leave the amount of laps at the default setting of 5, or crank it up for the true GP-feel.
AirPort_Crashby UltraMzag_PL (PC) A Lieutenant of the POSLKA EKIPA Crew, UltraMzag_PL has created a small car crash scene on the outskirts of the airport. There are plenty of wrecked vehicles and walls to take cover behind, but you’ll want to make a dash for a better weapon than the default Combat Pistol. You can choose to go for the few Assault Rifles around the board, but if you can quickly make your way to the east side of the map you'll find a hidden Minigun waiting to be unleashed. This is only the second Job UltraMzag_PL has created, so we're definitely looking forward to seeing what else he may have in store for the GTA Online community.
If you've spotted or created an epic GTA Online Job in Fort Zancudo or Los Santos International Airport, drop a link in the comments for the community to check out. Also, keep an eye out for more updates being made to the GTA Online Creator, including the frequently-requested official support for the ability to properly stack Props and more.

In this edition, check out a massive recent Euro Car Meet held in collaboration between two notable squads, some intense sky battles caught on camera by Crews specializing in aerial domination, as well as a few current grassroots Crew events and more.
STNC x GLRY's EUROPEAN FINEST #CARMEET
Ace photog colognemitch of the car enthusiast Crew, TheLowlyGentlemen teamed up with the Snapmatic maestro Crew known as Tha Gallery for an auspicious Car Meet dubbed the "European FinEst #CarMeet" Event. A lot of the dynamic and sexy snaps and excellent event videos that followed reinforce Gallery leader Killa___Cali's philosophy that "Low" is indeed a lifestyle.

AERIAL EXPLOITS OF THE ELITE PC PILOTS CREW

PC Pilots assign special ranks to all recruits and encourage members to contribute clips to upcoming official videos as part of showing the world what PCPI is all about, citing at their pcpilots.blogspot page “We will have for example Top 5 Pilot plays, challenge videos and Crew montages planned.” Sub, follow or join up with these guys to enjoy some sick airborne stunting on the regular or to get involved yourself if you’re an aspiring flyboy or girl.
PC Pilot Crew Lieutenant Amocat1 pretty much tells all other pilots to "pick your poison" in this nighttime shot.
CREW ANNIVERSARY SPOTLIGHT: STUSH LIFE
Passionate Crew Commissioner, Lazarus4life answered the call in our last Crew Cut asking for Crews to share their collective personal stories and experiences - Lazarus reached out to tell us about his stylish Crew known as STUSH LIFE. STLI recently celebrated one year of in-game comradery and friendship, having been founded by mikeaveli000 who had become unhappy with the Crew that he was in and decided to strike out on his own and gather a tight-knit circle of friends who believed that all members should have a shared level of equality, input, and extend a spirit of inclusiveness to newcomers.
From the outset, Stush Life looked to make themselves known across Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Instagram, posting various shots of all their latest adventures showing off STLI's unique style.
Fast forward one year and we see that a majority of the Crew have since moved from the Xbox 360 and PS3 over to the PS4, have updated their Crew Emblem and colors to black & crimson and are rocking the very latest in fashion and high-end whips.
Over the course of a year, the fledgling Crew has grown quite a bit from 8 core members to a strong unit well over 150 deep – known for their knack for Snapmatic photography and for organizing structured TDM Crew battles, which have helped them earn a ranking amongst the top 100 TDM Crews worldwide on PS4.
Sitting pretty in the Buckingham Luxor Deluxe, POZZLA raises a crisp glass of Blêuter'd to STLI's bright future.
These days, Stush Life is packing Free Mode lobbies, mastering the finer points of Heists and share some of that knowledge during organized Crew meets. To honor their anniversary, Stush Life held a "Stush Spectacular Weekend" celebration on June 14th across both PlayStation platforms to thank each and every one of its members for a great year and to look forward to another one filled with "fun, games, laughs, jokes, big bangs & booms!”
GRASSROOTS CREW BATTLES
HOT_KIMERA's battle-tested Crew, THE H0T CLAN are currently nearing their gaming clan's 7 year anniversary and to celebrate, the group put together this "Teamtage" featuring 12 of their core members showing off what they do best to the sounds of official GTAV soundtrack selection "Hive" by Earl Sweatshirt. Seen as the top echelon and elite smaller collective of the larger CAP PILLAS Crew, HOTZ really bring the fire to their competition in this presentation.
