GTA on YouTube: Favorite VERSUS MISSION Videos with Achievement Hunter, The Sidemen & More

Posted on March 9 2016, 11:26am | Author: R* M | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

With GTA Online Versus Missions dishing out Double GTA$ and RP this week, we've rounded up some of our all-time favorite gameplay videos, featuring missions like “Top Fun”, “Air Force Zero”, “Truck Off” and more. Acquaint (or re-acquaint) yourself with these combative missions by watching the likes of Lui Calibre, The Sidemen, Smosh Games and the Achievement Hunter gang tackle them – and then bookmark them for play yourself with handy direct links to the specific missions played below each video.


Top Fun by LetsPlay

Versus Missions: Top Fun, II, III
In the “Top Fun” series of missions, a team of runners on the ground in cars or dirt bikes have to make it to their destination before a team of fighter jets chasing from above can target them for destruction. A classic from the Achievement Hunter library, this Let's Play is the first of two Top Fun sessions they did (the team enjoyed it so much, they returned a year later for a reboot with a new line-up). Our friends Yogscast Lewis, Simon and Sips also tried their hand at outrunning the Lazers in this great vid also worth a watch.


King Of The Skies by Lui Calibre

Versus Missions: Acquire Targets I, IIIII
Lui Calibre, Daithi De Nogla, Silent Droidd, Miniladd and BasicallyIDoWrk dogfight over the flags in the VS Mission aerial take on CTF called "Acquire Targets". Its "all for one and one against Lui", whose natural talent at all things GTA Online is on display, even managing to pick up a point while careering engineless into the ground. You can also check out BasicallyIDoWrk's vantage point (and reluctant tribute to Lui's flying skills) in this video.


INTO THE WILD! by MM7Games

Versus Mission: Into The Wild
Miniminter and the lads from The Sidemen go "Into The Wild" as helicopter-piloting Hunters trying to take out the Runners before they can make it to Raton Canyon. Simon manages to find some inventive ways to take out the Runners using suicide missions, or simply relying on the fortuitous ineptitude of the competition. See how things played out from Tobi's perspective in his accompanying video.


TRUCK OFF by Beh2inga

Versus Mission: Truck Off
Here, The Sidemen try their hand at "Truck Off", aiming to deliver some precious Cargo to the Joshua trees of the Grand Senora Desert amidst hostile conditions. Vikk is left alone to face the music, with predictable consequences.


Air Force & Chill by Smosh Games 

Versus Missions: Air Force Zero I, II, III, IV, V
Mari, Jovenshire, Lasercorn and the rest of the gang from Smosh Games endeavor to take out Air Force Zero, high in the skies above Los Santos. Probably never a good idea to engage in precarious aerial attack and defend maneuvers when you’re still nursing that Mount bourbon hangover.

Let us know in the comments below if you've got a favorite Versus Mission, or another favorite video (including any of your own!) playing any of the Double GTA$ & RP Versus Missions this week.

#BeMyValentine Snapmatic Winners

Posted on February 23 2016, 4:43pm | Author: R* J | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

The lavish apparel, revamped Roosevelt and iconic Gusenberg Sweeper - all featured in GTA Online: Be My Valentine - lent themselves to some seriously stunning entries to the #BeMyValentine Snapmatic Contest. We're proud to present the winning collection of photos below, from L.A. Noire inspired recreations to stylish matching vehicle and outfit compositions. Congratulations to the chosen entries, who are each awarded GTA$1,000,000.


L.S. Noire by Duffi_21

It's an ill-fated night for a lost soul in this gripping L.A. Noire-inspired scene. Channeling the dramatic atmosphere of both the aforementioned game and the hedonistic tone of the era, Duffi_21's L.S. Noire crime scene spins a tale of murder, intrigue and suspense. With the characters sporting the new Mustard Pinstripe Suit, Dusk Check Suit, Black Column Dress and the returning Roosevelt fitting right in to the scene, this Snapmatic's ambience is spot-on.


Never Mess With Us by --EVOLUT7ON--

Along with fellow members of The Magnificent Team, --EVOLUT7ON-- shows that getting your hands dirty can still be done with style and flair. Modelling complementary Pinstripe Suits, Black Suit and Check Fedoras, the team prove that you can never look too dapper while dispatching your foes. (This awesome shot also by --EVOLUT7ON-- made our shortlist. It features the The Magnificent Team suited and booted and in the line of fire as they roll out their particular brand of street justice.)


Bonnie and Clyde 101 by ZazDillinger

In the calm before an approaching storm, the infamous duo are captured in this smooth black and white shot. ZazDillinger's seemingly minimal Snapmatic is all about the unspoken details, from the matching Gusenberg Sweepers at the ready, to the lingering gazes of the pair; right down to the Roosevelt's personalized number plate nearly hidden in the shadows - BONN1E.


Valentine by guardian473

Fueling the flames in the week of amore is gaurdian473's red hot Roosevelt, playing central role in this sizzling shot. The Roosevelt Valor is exhibited beautifully here, looking as formidable and enigmatic and as the mysterious figure approaching it.


パレト・フォレスト by Basimatic

Basimatic and friends kick up the leaves of the Paleto Forest as they go for a joyride fully decked out in Be My Valentine finery. Basimatic has used a Dutch tilt in this shot to emphasize the recklessness and destruction in the shot.

 

Honorable Mentions...

  • . by -Demize- - This serene, snow-white figure, fittingly attired in the Angelic Outfit stands proudly next to her matching Albany Roosevelt Valor.
  • Bye Bye Valentino by Sengel - It's a heart burning farewell to the labors of love as Sengal's Roosevelt goes up in flames in the Paleto Forest.
  • Downtown Vinewood by SilverFox_2 - SilverFox_2's classy dame is only matched by her equally classy ride in this cool, historically suggestive snapshot of old-time Downtown Vinewood.

A thank you again to all who took part in the Valentine's Social Club Event Weekend. The winners of the prize packs are as follows:

Valentine's Prize Pack Winners: toddbertuzzi, SnackyPackChamp, Walter_Wheat, Holzhacker88 and czycoloradn1.

Fun Sniper Jobs and Challenges from the GTA Online Creator Community

Posted on February 2 2016, 10:49am | Author: R* X | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

As any GTA Online veteran can tell you, sniping isn’t just another way to defeat your enemies – it's an art form. Be sure to bookmark these very fun sniper Jobs and metagame challenges on Social Club to test your marksman skills in GTA Online.


Snipe your enemies or suffer the explosive consequences in "Snipers vs Boats".

Snipers vs. Speed Boats by HitoGamer (PC)
"It's about damn time somebody makes one of those on water. This is the first Last Team Standing Job of its kind - completely built on water. TIP - press x to duck when sailing in a boat to make it harder for the snipers to shoot you."

HitoGamer of the Hitokiri Clan shares this aquatic take on the popular Snipers vs. Stunters motif. This LTS has one team perched upon a gated platform with only their Heavy Snipers to protect them while the boat team assembles on the north end of the Land Act Reservoir. If you’re on the boat team, fill up on Sticky Bombs before heading out on to the lake. As you glide over your foes, you’ll have the option of barreling into them or dropping an explosive (or perhaps both if you’re quick enough).


Watch Jelly, Kweb and Slogoman take on The Sidemen in a session of HitoGamer's "Snipers vs Boats".

Hunting Season by Singh1409 (PS4)
"Its hunting season and the snipers need to shoot everyone on the platforms. The runners need to run for their lives and hope they survive. Good luck."

Singh1409 has created a fiendishly difficult Last Team Standing sniper challenge. This death-run is pretty unforgiving and one misstep could mean defeat for the running team. It may look as though the snipers have the easier task, but well timed sprints will take you far in this LTS. If you’re on the sniper team, having each team member focus on a different opposing player will give you the best chance of making quick work of your enemies.

HEADSH0T_ADDICTIoN by muddafawker (PS3)
"Go on a headshot binge with a Heavy Sniper, be sure to be a quick-draw sniper because reaction time is everything when you're perched out in the open 50ft high. Armed with only a Heavy Sniper and your reflexes, use every advantage provided by the windmills to pierce a skull. Timing is crucial when dealing with windmills as the blades ricochet your shots. This is a challenge for skilled snipers to prove they're the dead-eye they claim, or for beginners to prove they can handle the big boy guns."

The Leader of the KYD Accepted Here Crew has knocked it out of the park with this inventive Deathmatch set atop the windmills at Ron Alternates Wind Farm. This sniper challenge is fun for every skill level from novice to expert, and as muddafawker mentions, quick-draw is important here. Don’t waste time celebrating when you make a kill – a single wasted second could cost you your life.

Holes of Glory by mkRixxx (Xbox One)
Junk Energy Drink Leader, mkRixxx, setup this close quarters, sniper-themed LTS on the northern part of Elysian Island. Test your reaction time and patience, as you duck, cover, and snipe your way to victory. For a little taste of what to expect, check out our Twitch Highlight featuring the band Young Guns playing this Job on the Rockstar Games Live Stream.

Sniper Tragedy I: Atk/Def by thunderboltblast (Xbox 360)
"This is a strategy game between two sniper teams known as Alter and Preserve. Team Alter gets maximum attacking power with extra weapons and cars, but consequently are put in a defensive strategy. Team Preserve gets an incredible amount of defensive power and an advantage over Alter, but in consequence they can run out of ammo quickly, and lack everything but their fort, basic traps, and ammo."

The Leader of The Gods of Purity Crew, has split the teams up into offensive and defensive sides in this Del Perro LTS. If you are on the “Alter” team (offense) you will have tons of firepower and vehicles, but you'll be vulnerable on the ground. The “Preserve” team (defense) gets the best vantage point to shoot from but has very limited ammo with which to do so. 


Have you constructed your own sniper-themed Job or challenge - or another type of uniquely-themed Job? Make sure to share it in the Newswire comments section for others to enjoy or send it to Rockstar via Mouthoff so we can check it out and possibly share it with the GTA Online community here in the future. Also, be sure to tune into the Rockstar Games Livestream, on both Twitch and YouTube Gaming, this Friday February 5th at 5pm ET where we will be playing the Jobs featured in this post with invited Creators themselves and other special guests.
