GTA Online Player-Created Playlists: Z-Games Rallycross, Killing Time at Lake Vinewood and More

Posted on August 20 2015, 11:14am | Author: R* X | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Super cars defy gravity downtown in California Car Surfing.

Much like a classical composer creating an opus through a series of musical movements, the ability of a GTA Online Creator to weave several Jobs into a Playlist that can more fully express an idea, tell a story or deliver maximum hilarity, is a bit of an art form.

We've been scouring the Social Club to find those who are using Playlists in ways that a single Job could not hope to emulate. Below we've highlighted a trio of exemplary Playlists to check out (one for Xbox 360 & Xbox One, one for PC and one for PS3 & PS4). And just like with individual Jobs, you can bookmark these Playlists on Social Club so that the next time you jump into GTA Online, they’ll be waiting.

Z-Games Rallycross Tournament by Kelchan (Xbox 360 & Xbox One)
"A 4-track list of technical tracks in and around the Maze Bank Arena, chock full of fast and slow sections, sharp corners, kicker jumps, a big jump, corkscrews, cross-sections, narrow passages, and speedy straightaways."

If you’re looking to flex your drifting muscles, this Z-Games themed Playlist created by the Commissioner of the Children of the Nite Crew, is just the ticket. The Races become increasingly difficult as you make your way to the Z-Games Rallycross Finals. If you're committed to the challenge of (high plains) drifting, you can take a stab at Kelchan's San Andreas Rallycross as well.

To be Rich and Bored in LS by Coach_Wargo (PS3 & PS4)
"Spoiled rich kids in the Lake Vinewood neighborhood get together to kill some time."

A brilliantly conceived and wonderfully executed series of Jobs that illustrates the lengths privileged Vinewood Hills teenagers will go to relieve themselves of their intense existential ennui. With a series of Job descriptions as good as any we've seen, Coach_Wargo, the commissioner of the Red Rum Racing Crew deserves the plaudits for this unique Playlist. If you enjoy this, be sure to check out Coach_Wargo’s other themed Playlists on Social Club.

PC Master Race by ZerkaaHD (PC)
Rockstar livestream alumnus and prominent GTA Online Youtuber, ZerkaaHD (of The Sidemen) has curated this particular Playlist featuring Jobs made by xzulas, Commissioner of the GTA ELITE STUNT CREW, and alex94kumar, Commissioner of THE NFWA. From the expertly created AIR TUNNEL RACE to the topsy-turvy CALIFORNIA CAR SURFING, there is something for every skill level to enjoy. Watch The Ultimate Sidemen make their way through the entire Playlist in the above Funny Moments compilation.

Announcing the Winner of the #illgottengains Rockstar Editor Contest

Posted on August 19 2015, 1:17pm | Author: R* L | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

After poring through entries with all sorts of creative interpretations on the directive to "show off your luxury spoils," congratulations go out to Social Club member pimpedupbadass for the winning entry, the aptly-titled "WHAT ILL-GOTTEN-GAINS IS ALL ABOUT." By earning top prize, he'll be receiving a custom G910 Orion Spark Gaming Keyboard and a G510 Proteus Core Gaming Mouse, both laser-engraved with his Social Club ID and the Rockstar Editor logo - plus a deluxe prize pack of official GTAV gear and a $100 gift card to the Rockstar Warehouse.


Beginning with a seemingly hard-luck lady who does time at Bolingbroke after getting pinched for grand theft auto, pimpedupbadass takes her out of the joint and straight into the vault of the Fleeca Bank. From there, she and her Heist teammates hit the jackpot and proceed to enjoy the fruits of their labor - from a Ponsonbys shopping spree to joyriding across Southern San Andreas in the breathtaking Progen T20.


The two esteemed runners-up will both receive a deluxe prize pack of official GTAV gear and a $100 gift card to the Rockstar Warehouse.

After a betrayal by his partner that left him with empty pockets and near death, the protagonist of GOTTEN PAYBACK vows to get revenge. It takes nearly eight years and lots of ammo, but watch his wish come true in this beautifully executed runner-up.

Welcome to Los Santos by BloodLust180
Set to the tune of The Alchemist and Oh No's banging track of the same name, Welcome to Los Santos serves as a perfect introduction to the city, and all the spoils of its nouveau riche. Highlighted by beautiful edits and action shots that show off everything from the serene backdrop of Vespucci Beach to the seedier parts of town, BloodLust180 has painted quite the picture of that LS life.


And here are a few eye-catching honorable mentions that we'd be remiss not to acknowledge.

Go Brawl Out! by mathewisonfire
With a license plate that reads "DEATH," mathewisonfire takes the Coil Brawler to the absolute max in what amounts to the ultimate commercial for this Ill-Gotten Gains Update Part 2 off-road vehicle. Venturing over rivers, mountain tops, beach dwellers and everything in between, not to mention pulling off stellar jumps and skid outs, this vid proves the Brawler is for "nearly anywhere, anytime."

Devil's Playground by Mrluckdragon
Three minutes and nine seconds of pure adrenaline and attitude... Testing out vehicles from both Ill-Gotten updates and knocking out victims with his Knuckledusters perfectly in sync to the music, this entry really packs a punch.

Fast Life by shorty2001
Lightning quick edits, high speed rides and parachute jumps off the Maze Bank Tower are just a few examples of just how maxed out and high octane this vid is - all edited perfectly to the lyrics of Vybz Kartel's song of the same name off the Welcome to Los Santos soundtrack.


Congrats again to all our winners and thanks to all our talented entrants. The upcoming launch of the Rockstar Editor for PS4 and Xbox One as the next update to Grand Theft Auto V and GTA Online means the next Rockstar Editor Contest will be the first one with entries across all three platforms - so the creative competition will be fiercer than ever. Stay tuned for info about that contest and forthcoming update.

Crew Noticeboard: Scarlet Rogues, Dinero Mobb and More

Posted on August 14 2015, 1:37pm | Author: R* J | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

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.


Crew Cut: Car Meet Carnivals and the Top Head Hunter Crews on Social Club

Posted on August 11 2015, 12:12pm | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games


6 Star Street Racers, captained by prolific YouTuber GTA-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.


While the introduction of Bulletproof Helmets in the Last Team Standing Update offered competitive Crews on GTA Online some measure of protection from the single shot to the dome kill, we can clearly see in the chart above that it's done little to hinder these headhunting Crews from hitting their marks. Bagging and tagging in the largest capacity we see SuperioresVsupremacy with a sizable lead in overall headshots, followed by Divos Killaz, ASURA ZERO, atsushichan and Evolution_SA. For overall headshot accuracy the GIORNO and The_Last_World Crews seem to be taking the lead though we would fairly note they are averaging from a much smaller pool of kills than The_Key_to_Victory, Go_for_broke_forever and Last MESSIAH respectively.


Many established Social Club Crews regularly hold scheduled events which you can sign up to join. The calendar below presents a lineup of just a few upcoming August events on our radar, and if you or your Crew are hosting some fun upcoming activities, make sure to shout it out in the comments section below for other Social Club members to check out.


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

Player-Created GTA Online Jobs Throwback to the Days of Smuggler's Run, Manhunt and Midnight Club

Posted on August 6 2015, 10:24am | Author: R*N | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Our latest collection of nostalgic, player-made GTA Online Jobs feature some classic entries in the Smuggler's Run, Manhunt and Midnight Club franchises.

For these trips down memory lane, don't forget to bookmark them on Social Club for easy access next time you boot up GTA Online. If you have any Jobs of your own that were inspired by Rockstar titles, feel free to share them with the Social Club community in the comments section or tag them with "throwback" on Social Club to make them easy to find.


Night riders take on the Point-To-Point Midnight Club: LA Race

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.


Stealth and strategy go hand-in-hand during Oblivion2500's Twisted Warehouse LTS.

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 LS by 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 Run by 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.

Player-Created GTA Online Jobs: LSIA and Fort Zancudo Are Open for Business

Posted on July 28 2015, 1:07pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

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 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 Zancrudo by 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 véhiculées by 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 2 by 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 GP by 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_Crash by 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.
