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

Posted 2 weeks, 5 days ago | Author: R* Y | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

CREW CAR MEETS GOING STRONG 

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.


THE HEADHUNTERS

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.


CREW CALENDAR

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.

GTA 5 Short Film "Midnight Driver" by Mike

Equal parts action movie trailer and music video noir, the director here chronicles an epic supernatural battle taking place between the forces of good and evil once the sun sets on the streets of Los Santos.

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

Posted 3 weeks, 3 days ago | 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.


MIDNIGHT CLUB


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.
 

MANHUNT


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.
 

SMUGGLER'S RUN


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.

Fan Art: GTAIII's 8-Ball Leg Tat, Trevor Cosplay and More

Posted 1 month ago | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

This week, check out some truly impressive classic GTA ink, a range of GTAV cosplay and make-up work, and some sweet artistic throwback tributes to Red Dead Redemption and Max Payne 3. Make sure to follow us on Twitter and Instagram where we feature the latest fan creations on the regular and as always, if you have created something of your own that you feel the community needs to see, you can feel free to share it in comments below.

Quite literally kicking it old school. YouTuber paynexkiller shows he’s a man who appreciates the classics with this stunning tribute to GTAIII’s 8-Ball on his shin. Apparently, this WIP is just the beginning as the final piece will be an epic montage faithful to the original character art including Claude Speed and Misty as well.


Trevor Philips GTA 5 by TheIdeaFix

We’re not sure that Trevor Philips is the type of gentleman anyone should be emulating – however this next pair of cosplayers pull off tributes that might even make the Sandy Shores psychopath himself blush. Above, TheIdeaFix does up one of his buddies as Trevor, looking ready for things to get messy.

Trevor Philips Cosplay by katrinafox

Cosplayer extraordinaire Katrina Fox was directly inspired by the excellent ‘Trevor-Femart’ we shared recently drawn by Grobi-Grafik, saying ‘brb gonna cosplay this asap’. Fast forward about six weeks, and lo and behold Katrina’s rolling up in Anime Expo in LA with T.P.'s signature tats, bruises and bluster on display. She also happened to mention that "Next time I wear this I want the whole squad" so aspiring cosplayers feel free to hit her up to complete the trio.

When you dress like your GTA Online character.” Self-professed ‘Artist, GamerChick, Nerd and GTAV Fanatic’ thatoggchick has taken a break from her Trevor Philips fandom to dress up as her own GTA Online character IRL with this side-by-side doppelganger selfie set.

You're going to want to watch MaoMaoz's making-of video for this one to appreciate exactly what went into her make-up transformation from a totally normal looking young lady into a downright freaky real-life incarnation of the GTA Online monkey mask avatar as popularized by our homeboy Lui Calibre.

 GTA Online-Character by Grobi-Grafik

Grobi-Grafik is really going for it lately, and is back in this roundup with yet another fantastic rendition of a GTA Online community member's character looking straight out of the July page of the Ammu-Nation pin-up calendar rocking the Patriot Beer Hat and an AK-47.


 


Red Dead by juhoham

The humble juhoham captions this one as just a "quick sketch" but the Finnish artist's painting of John Marston has a striking, vintage and almost haunting visual quality to it.

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 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 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.

Rockstar Game Tips: Pulling Off The Humane Labs Raid

Posted on July 23 2015, 11:25am | Author: R* X | Filed Under: Games

Successfully robbing some of the most heavily guarded institutions in Los Santos and Blaine County requires careful planning, meticulous teamwork and a healthy disregard for chances of survival. In this edition of Rockstar Game Tips, we aim to help you increase your odds of pulling off the Humane Labs Raid - which currently awards you double the GTA$ payouts and double the RP all through this weekend.

Humane Labs is a secretive research center where, according to Agent 14, nerve agents are being stored under the instruction of the war mongering Don Percival - your crew's job is to get your sticky fingers on them. As is often the case for a mere pawn: "Don't worry about the why; just worry about the how."

SETUP COSTS

  • Initial Cost to Heist Leader - $54,000

VEHICLES UNLOCKED

  • Hydra VTOL
  • Valkyrie chopper
  • Insurgent
  • Insurgent Pickup

THE SETUP - COLLECT THE KEY CODES

Agent 14 has set up a meeting with a contact just off of Elgin Ave. From there, the contact will hand over the codes and your crew's job is to complete the exchange without any problems. The parking lot where the exchange takes place has three main access points and we recommend covering all three, with your lookout taking up cover by the alleyways to the rear and to the right of the parking lot, while the appointed Buyer and Bodyguard hang around the meeting point in the center to complete the exchange.

Be sure to keep weapons holstered before the contact arrives and be careful not to block the entrance - if anything looks amiss the contact will be spooked and the exchange will be compromised. When the FIB arrives, have your Lookouts keep their positions and hold down the alleyways using the Combat MG or Carbine Rifle as they both have a good combination of firing rate, damage, accuracy, and range. The Buyer and Bodyguard should take control of the main gate and focus on not letting the heat spill out into the parking lot. To make quick work of your foes, we recommend whipping out the RPGs and going to town on the FIB Buffalos and Grangers to maximize damage and remove potential enemy cover options. Seeing as the two members on the ground will be taking fire from all sides, it's best to make your escape after the first wave of FIB has been neutralized and leave your other two members to fend for themselves (remember all players MUST leave the meeting area otherwise the Heist will not progress). Collect the briefcase and make your escape to the Planning Room with your newly acquired key codes in tow.

THE SETUP - INSURGENTS


Take the high ground and flex those sniping muscles.

Next, you will need to acquire armored 4x4s. Head over to the Merryweather testing site at Davis Quartz in Blaine County and snatch up the Insurgents. Once you arrive, you have the option of heading in guns blazing from the safety of your Armored Kuruma (if you were savvy enough to choose it as your starting vehicle) or show off your sniping skills and take the high ground in the quarry in order to take out the guards, as the gentlemen from the GTA Series Videos fan channel show us in their play-through clip.

Have your best drivers get behind the wheels as the Insurgents can easily topple over, this is especially important for the two crew members in the Insurgent Pick-Up as flipping over could mean the death of the teammate manning the Turret and blowing your chances of completing the Criminal Mastermind Challenge. Your best course of action is to send a Homing Missile the way of the chopper at the beginning to take the sting out of its tail. If you don't happen to have a Missile at your disposal, hop into the Insurgent Pick-Up and use the extremely powerful .50 Caliber Turret mounted to the roof to take out the attacking helicopters. Promptly lead with the Insurgent and have the Insurgent Pick-Up bring up the rear in order to take out incoming enemies with the Turret. While the regular Insurgent isn't armed, its armored shell will allow you to carve a path through the police (and any bystanders). If your team is struggling against enemies as you are heading to the drop off point, driving along the train tracks makes it difficult for Merryweather to catch you. Just watch out for that train!
