GTA Online Updates Today: Drop Zone Adversary Mode plus New Sultan and Banshee Customizable Wide Body Race Cars

Posted 2 weeks, 3 days ago | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Freefall your way into Drop Zone, the latest addition to GTA Online on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. In this new Adversary Mode, teams of paratroopers jump from Cargobobs hovering high above, then race to the ground to seize and maintain control of a small, exposed patch of terra firma. No man is an island here - you and your squad mates will need to attack and defend as a unit. 

With four teams and up to 16 players zeroed in on the target area, this mode is fast, chaotic and prone to huge swings in fortune. First team to hold the drop zone for a total of two non-continuous minutes wins. There are five Drop Zone maps, each requiring a unique approach to deal with changes in terrain and cover. These can be found at Pillbox Hill, Richman College, Elysian Island, the Mirror Park cul-de-sac and the Sisyphus Theater. 

Now at Benny's: New Vehicles and Upgrades

Benny is branching out with new upgrade types for two new cars. Pick up the Karin Sultan and Bravado Banshee at a low entry price in the updated Stock section of bennysoriginalmotorworks.com.

Bring these rides to Benny’s garage for upgrades into high-performance, wide body race cars - the Karin Sultan RS and the Bravado Banshee 900R and tap into a range of upgrades exclusive to Benny’s. When fully modded, the Sultan RS and the Banshee 900R can even compete with top tier Supercars like the Zentorno and T20.

Stay tuned for details on our upcoming Event Weekend, which includes a Double GTA$ & RP Playlist, in-game discounts and more. Plus, keep an eye on GTA Online next month for some items you’re sure to fall in love with...

Projeto pessoal - baseado em gta V by Daniel Victor

Just one portrait is clearly not enough to capture the wild adventures of Brazilian Artist Daniel Victor's well-coiffed GTA Online character. Whether as a clean cut sniper or military prisoner, Victor's avatar somehow remains ridiculously photogenic.




Car Art by your0nlyhope

Dan, AKA your0nlyhope on Twitter, has been creating these psychedelic versions of GTA Online vehicles and the results are simply stellar. Dan has teased that he has made a ton of these, and we can’t wait to see what other creations he will be sharing in the near future.

Posted 3 weeks, 2 days ago | Author: R* X | Filed Under: Music, Social Club, Games

Rockstar Games and Little Dragon are pleased to present the winning official music video for “Wanderer” by Little Dragon (from the Welcome to Los Santos LP) created entirely using the Grand Theft Auto V Rockstar Editor.

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

Posted 3 weeks, 5 days ago | 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.

Game Tips: Becoming a Successful VIP and Bodyguard

Posted on January 15 2016, 5:10pm | Author: R*N | Filed Under: Games

The recently released GTA Online: Executives and Other Criminals introduces new business opportunities for the ruthlessly enterprising, courtesy of the SecuroServ private security corporation. Whether you’re an established magnate in need of a reliable protection detail for your empire, or an ambitious upwardly mobile employee eager to earn some hard cash no matter how dirty the work – we’ve assembled the following keys to success to help you make your mark.


Executive Summary:

VIPs and Bodyguards are defined roles of employer and employee – who work together to succeed in VIP Work and VIP Challenges as well as escorting the VIP through the dangerous and unpredictable streets of Los Santos.

As a pocket-padded VIP, you can indulge in the lap of luxury or wreak criminal havoc, safe in the knowledge that you're in the care of experienced, well-armed bodyguards, personally selected by your good self in true executive fashion.

As the Bodyguards, get paid for doing what you enjoy - exercising decisive action. By becoming a Bodyguard, you can rely on a steady, periodic salary of GTA$5,000, on top of any additional cash and RP for taking on VIP Work and VIP Challenges that happen within Freemode.


Becoming a VIP:

If you want to take the lead as the boss of the group and be the VIP, make sure your bank balance is healthy. You don't have to pay out anything to become a VIP, but you will need a minimum balance of at least GTA$1M in capital to begin your reign.

Open up the Interaction Menu and access 'SecuroServ', where you'll be given the option to register as a VIP. Choose this to become a VIP and name your Organization. When you go back in to the Interaction Menu with your new status, you'll find the Option 'SecuroServ VIP' now available. From here, you can start living that VIP life.

While building up your executive empire, it's worth remembering the following to help you get the edge on your competition and manage your employees:

  • VIP statuses last for 4 hours of Freemode play. Time spent in Jobs or Heists do not decrease your VIP timer. Once the 4 hours are up, it's a 12 hour cool down period until you can be a VIP again. 
  • There can only be a maximum of 6 VIPs in a session at any time. If you join a session with 6 VIPs already active, you'll be given the chance to suspend your VIP status.
  • Once a VIP, the entry in the Personal Interaction menu changes simply to 'SecuroServ VIP'. From there, you will have access to the Hire Bodyguards option.​
  • You can hire and, if necessary, fire other players as your 'Bodyguards'. You can hire up to 3 Bodyguards to serve and protect your Organization at a time.
  • If a Bodyguard betrays your organization, or falls foul of your rule you can also end their employment via the "Terminate" option. The other Bodyguards in your organization will have 5 minutes to take out the black sheep.
  • You won't be able to be in a session with another Organization with the same name and while there's the option of renaming your Organization, it comes at a cost, so make sure you're certain about your Organization's name before you begin operations.


Working as a Bodyguard:

Bodyguards help their employer avoid 'unwanted attention' while earning cool cash as hired hands executing their delicate affairs.

To advertise your expert set of skills, simply open the Interaction Menu, select 'SecuroServ' to open up the option 'Looking for Work'. Toggle this on to make your services available to anyone who might be in need of a helping hand and wait for the job offers to roll in.

As you get stuck in to the hard graft or building your way up to VIP status yourself, we recommend making note of the following tips:

  • Bear in mind that your payouts as a Bodyguard reduce by 5% every time your VIP dies, to a maximum reduction of 50%. Keep your boss alive!
  • ​While in the VIP's vicinity, you can also earn a 100RP bonus per minute and if you die within a certain range of the VIP, you'll respawn nearby your VIP.
  • Bodyguards are able to call a vehicle in if the VIP owns it already, or if it's already active on the map.
  • You'll get your health regen accelerated and pushed up to 75% while in the VIP's radius. The health regen and RP bonus also apply if you and your VIP are in the same interior space.
  • If you're looking to rack up the RP, it's worth noting that Bodyguards receive a regular 400 RP bonus for riding with their VIP, and 600 RP for driving the VIP around.


Additional Pointers



While many have already successfully eased into the smart shoes of VIPs and Bodyguards, for those taking their first tentative steps into this mode, here's a few additional introductory things you should also know to get started:

How payouts work:

The Bodyguards earn $5,000 per 15 minutes for being in the VIP's service (regardless of how long they have been in the service for). In return for their salaries, 100% of the Bodyguards' winnings in Freemode (including participation bonuses in Freemode Events), go to the VIP (minus a 10% cut to SecuroServ). An exception to this is personal vehicle sales. Note that Bodyguards also earn an RP bonus when in the vicinity of their VIP and get a small stat increase. Stat increases and increased health regen are particularly useful during modes like Executive Deathmatch.

Does a Yacht count as a property?

A Yacht doesn't count towards your limit of 5 properties, but you can spawn there, freshen up with a change of clothes and grab a refreshing drink while you're at it. It does not contain a garage, or a Heist Planning Room, but the vehicles that come with the Yacht package you bought will always spawn there, even if they were destroyed in the last session. You can't sell a Yacht, but you can always upgrade, downgrade or completely re-create it, right down to the name.

How to kick undesirables off your Yacht:

Any good yachtsman knows the importance of keeping the ‘ahoy polloi’ away, and so each Yacht comes with built-in Defenses and several Access options to protect your Yacht from unwelcome visitors looking to mooch off your millions. If a stowaway has boarded your Yacht, follow these steps to get rid of them without changing sessions:

  • Restrict Yacht Access to exclude the interlopers. You can find the Access options in the Yacht Services area of your Interaction Menu.
  • Toggle your Yacht Defenses to 'Off' (so you can access your weapons).
  • Kill the unwelcome players. They will respawn on the shore.
  • Toggle your Yacht Defenses to 'On' so they can't simply fly back to the Yacht.
  • Enjoy your Hot Tub alone or with your closest friends discreetly and in peace!

Stay tuned for more upcoming Game Tips including strategies for success in specific VIP Work and VIP Challenges modes as well as in recently released Adversary Modes.

#Executives and #FestiveSurprise2015 Snapmatic Winners

Posted on January 13 2016, 1:28pm | Author: R* X | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Presenting the winning Snapmatics from both the Executives & Other Criminals and the Festive Surprise 2015 photo contest challenges. Pampered moments on luxury Yachts, VIPs and Bodyguards acting the part, stunning shots of the new Declasse Mamba Sports Classic - and of course inspired holiday season snaps of bad Santas, Gingerbread Men and moments of wintry magic were all on photogenic display. Congratulations to all the winning photographers who take home GTA$1M in prize money for each snap.

#EXECUTIVES SNAPMATIC WINNERS


DRAGON by Ming_666F

Japanese player, Ming_666F brings some distinctly Eastern flavor to this #Executives shot. With the golden dragons of the Oriental Theatre setting the scene, Ming_666F showcases some opulent threads from Executives & Other Criminals. The well-accessorized, golden Heavy Revolver and the stylish Syndicate Leader VIP suit and complementary Bodyguard outfit complete the look.


OCEANO PACÍFICO
by Joelbor

Beautifully and artfully composed, Joelbor's majestic shot captures the serenity of the moment as a diver takes a dip off the Yacht bow. With the hazy setting of Del Perro Pier and a vast golden sky in the background, this snap is postcard perfect.


THE YACHT TAKEOVER
by Sariska

And now for a Yacht shot of the more action-packed variety. Sariska showcases the flipside of Yacht ownership, as two pirates approach on a Speedophile as part of the Piracy Prevention VIP and Bodyguard mode. Sariska's opted for a Dutch tilt to lend extra energy to this action shot, with the flag and moon on the right side balancing the composition perfectly. 


PORTOLA DR by _-Chy-_

Showing off the Declasse Mamba, _-Chy-_'s artistic use of a dreamy Portola Drive backdrop - complete with palm fronds and the high-rise skyline - and soft, smoky complimentary lighting emphasizes the classic curves of the car beautifully.  


PAZIFIK by StrohhutDLuffy

This one looks truly art gallery ready. StrohhutDLuffy and associate are caught frozen in time as they bail out, mid-air from the new Declasse Mamba. Masterful use of focus, filter, composition and color.


#FESTIVESURPRISE2015 SNAPMATIC WINNERS


PACIFIC BLUFFS
by KiinGSTeR

KiinGSTeR's Gingerbread Man is about to get a little extra frosting in this well-timed snap, comically capitalizing on his 2015 edition grimace.


CHIMNEY SWEEP by quaid86

Titled “Chimney Sweep”, quaid86's Santa makes a hasty getaway after dropping an explosive stocking stuffer down the chimney for one naughty Los Santos resident.


MESMERIZED
by _-Chy-_

This Snapmatic depicting the wonderment of a girl seeing snow for the first time is just sweet. _-Chy-_ has never won a Snapmatic contest before but today has made lightning strike twice, with another winning shot. _-Chy-_ revealed a bit of the BTS artistry behind this seemingly simple snap: “Director Mode, Editor, and a lot of patience with catching the snowflake in the right position while matching the exact timing of the player action expression.”


RICHMAN
by CodeBre4ker

On, Blitzen! Another bad Santa is poised to make spirits bright on Christmas night in Los Santos.


GOT MILK?
by EddieLTU

EddieLTU's clever “Got Milk?” of Gingerbread Man trying to avoid being served up as Santa’s Christmas Night milk and cookies treat is undeniably cute. There were so many other fun Festive Surprise 2015 mask Snaps as well that it was very hard to choose just 5, so a special shout out to some honorable mentions along those lines such as missNxkolette for her “Are You Ready to Be Served?” unwitting Christmas turkey dinner guest and monkdogg69 for his gangster “Straight Outta the Oven!” Gingerbread Man among many others.

Finally, congratulations are also in order to the winners of the Executives & Other Criminals Social Club Event Weekend Sweepstakes prize packs: solid_snake_X, JudgmentDay86STARZTVlill-bad-boy and ipodipad. Stay tuned to the Rockstar Newswire for future opportunities to win Rockstar and GTAV gear and collectibles.

Read on and bookmark these Jobs to try out with friends the next time you play GTA Online.
 

The Job:  Super Turbine Turmoil by MTLRellik (Xbox One)
The Video: Super Turbine Turmoil by Swiftor

Job Creator extraordinaire MTLRellik combines vertigo-inducing sky ramps with punishing obstacle courses to make one beautiful route of destruction. Rellik himself joins Swiftor in the video above to play through this 30-player Job on Xbox One. Even with the strong driving skills Swiftor has naturally developed by playing GTA Online regularly over the years, you'll see sometimes in this Job he just has to press pedal to the metal and hope for the best.

The Job:  Aspects of Agility by Zorvaine (PS4 & PS3)
The Video: HABILIDAD EN PARKOUR CON LAS MOTOS ! by Makiman131

​The video may be in Spanish, but it speaks the international language of nail-biting parkour. Creator Zorvaine only has a few Jobs under his belt, but is clearly a natural at crafting platform sequences that will put your rooftop-hopping motorcycle skills to a stern test. Patience and persistence are the key as this Race features multiple routes and perilously tight turns. One for those who can keep cool, calm - and controlled - under pressure.

The Job:  The Chiliad Challenge. by numnuts16 (Xbox One & Xbox 360)
The Video: THE CHILIAD CHALLENGE RACE! by XpertThief

XpertThief & koalibears take the road less travelled in an attempt to be the first to the top of Mount Chiliad, a task made all the more difficult by a liberal sprinkling of Sticky Bombs. Designed by UK-based Creator numnuts16 of the Blood in Hand Crew, and with trails barely wide enough for one 4x4, this Job will test the skill and patience of anyone who dares.

The Job:  Spirality!!! by T.y.p.u.c.T (PC)
The Video: GTA 5 FUNNY MOMENTS - INSANE SPIRAL CHALLENGE by JoblessGarrett

Garrett and madcap stunters Kwebbelkop, Slogoman and Jelly go off on a crazy winding custom challenge over the Grand Senora Desert designed by Russia's T.y.p.u.c.T. Drivers must make their way up a massive spiral towards a collection of Sniper Rifles whilst being targeted by attackers armed with rocket launchers on an overhead platform.

The Video: GTA V - Proximity Flying Capture Job by iLoveYourFace
Kudos to pocpiz and ImDaRAD, creators of this daredevil's Capture Job on Xbox One and PS4 respectively, for innovation here. Players need to skydive down the rocky climbs of Mount Chiliad, maneuvering through gates to collect Capture Objects before depositing them in the Capture Point at the base of the mountain. If you make it to the bottom empty-handed, a room of knife-wielding ladies are on standby to brutally send you back to the Spawn Point. In the video, iLoveYourFace displays some ace freefalling skills in both first and third person to make this challenge appear easier than it really is. These Jobs were created by members of the Sky Children, whose aerial exploits you may have recently read about here on the Rockstar Newswire.
