The Executives & Other Criminals Event Weekend in GTA Online: Dec 16th – 20th

Posted on December 17 2015, 3:09pm | Author: R* M | Filed Under: Social Club, Games

Diversify the revenue streams of your VIP organization in GTA Online this weekend with huge GTA$ bonuses and much more in the Executives and Other Criminals Event Weekend. Whether you're an up and coming VIP or a newly enlisted Bodyguard in Los Santos looking to make a fast buck, you'll need every dime you can beg, borrow or (preferably) steal in order to work your way to the top of the SecuroServ food chain (and to stay there). This weekend in GTA Online we're giving you the opportunity to build up a nest egg to purchase your first Yacht, Conker Avenue Stilt House or even your own SecuroServ VIP organization. The Executives and Other Criminals Event Weekend contains multiple ways to earn Double GTA$ as well as RP boosts and significant discounts on the tools you need to live the life of a true mogul or make a name for yourself in security detail. Read on for more information.

DOUBLE GTA$ & DOUBLE RP ADVERSARY MODES inc. EXTRACTION
Like any business, legitimate or otherwise, expansion requires investment and a focus on the bottom line. Your biggest profit margins this weekend can be found playing Double GTA$ & Double RP Adversary Modes. As is standard, a simple one button launch from the GTAV start screen puts you directly into a Playlist featuring the brand new Adversary Mode Extraction. The perfect arena in which to hone your SecuroServ skills, Extraction sends in a team of Bodyguards to work with their team member, the Target - stranded after a plane crash - to rendezvous in the extraction zone and get them to the evac point. They're up against the opposing Hit Squad who have caught wind of the operation and are on a mission to take out the Target.

DOUBLE GTA$ SEA RACES
With GTA Online: Executives and Other Criminals, the ultimate symbol of wretched excess - your own luxury Yacht - is now available to purchase. To get your sea legs ready for a life on the open water, we're doubling the GTA$ bonuses on all Sea Races all weekend. Those extra dollars will come in handy when customizing your new Yacht, whether you go for the standard Orion, or go all in on the ultra-deluxe Aquarius which comes complete with a Hot Tub and a new SuperVolito Carbon helicopter.

UP TO 50% DISCOUNTS ON ARMOR, WEAPONS, AMMO & MORE
Cut your overhead this weekend with a hefty 50% off discount on a range of gear intended to protect you, your VIP and your vehicles. There are 50% off discounts on Body Armor, Bulletproof Tires and Vehicle Armor, so you can take to the streets with confidence and shrug off any inconvenient bullet sprays. The tire and armor bonuses extend to the 10 new non-armored land vehicles that were released this week, including the Imponte Nightshade, Declasse Mamba, Bravado Verlierer and the Benefactor Turreted Limo.

If you're worried about keeping your new Yacht in pristine condition, don't miss the 50% off discount on RPG Rockets to get the upper hand in Piracy Prevention, Executive Search or any of the other VIP and Bodyguard Freemode games. For those needing new arms and extra ammo, look out for the 50% off discount on Sniper Rifles (perfect for taking out any VIPs without having to engage their Bodyguards); grab the 50% discount off Pistol ammo for your brand new Heavy Revolver and for those wanting a signature look to their weaponry, there's a 50% discount on gun engravings.

Finally, to ensure you can always get yourself to your new Yacht this weekend (or prepare to board someone else’s), we’ll also be featuring 25% off all Docktease Services for whatever your aquatic needs may be.

GTA$1M #EXECUTIVES SNAPMATIC CONTEST
Since it's impossible to fully enjoy an extravagant purchase without sharing a photo of it on social media, make the most of the Snapmatics you're taking by entering our #Executives Snapmatic Contest. Five Snapmatic photographers who publish the greatest Executives & Other Criminals Snapmatics will win GTA$1,000,000 towards their next Yacht or Stilt House. Eligible photos must be published before end-of-day Sunday Dec 20, and must feature content from Executives & Other Criminals, whether it's a new vehicle, weapon or fun times aboard your majestic sea-faring monolith. Don't forget to tag your photo with "executives" on Social Club. Full rules can be found here.

SOCIAL CLUB GEAR GIVEAWAY SWEEPSTAKES
You'll want to match your in game trappings of the executive lifestyle with some real world finery, so head over to the Social Club Events Page now and enter for the chance to grab a sack full of presents, perfect for gifting to loved ones or hoarding for yourself this upcoming holiday season. The ideal stocking stuffer is the GTAV engraved chrome Zippo lighter, perfect for commemorating the purchase of your new Stilt House with a fine cigar. SecuroServ VIP organizations come complete with a variety of outfits for your Bodyguards to wear, so get in the spirit of this organized crime with the Grotti Polo shirt and the classic GTAV black hoodie. There’s also the GTAV kitchen magnet, Epsilon paperweight and magnetic kitchen timer to make your IRL Penthouse Apartment feel like home, and of course you'll need to be on guard around your yacht, particularly if someone has too much champagne before getting in the Hot Tub. Look the part with the Los Santos Lifeguard t-shirt.

This Friday Dec 18th at 5pm ET, tune in to the official Rockstar Games channels on Twitch and YouTube as the Rockstar Broadcast team plays through every single map of the brand new Adversary Mode Extraction, as well as the new VIP and Bodyguard gameplay in Freemode with special guests including Ltzonda, Deanabean, Manny FweshTheLiveLemonMattophobia, plus Knox and Jester from the storied Hillbilly Agenda Crew and more.

GTA Online: Executives and Other Criminals Now Available

Posted on December 15 2015, 10:05am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

Executives and Other Criminals brings new ways to make crime pay in GTA Online for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC - offering players the chance to run their own criminal organizations, hire and fire other players, and face off against rival operations across Freemode. Los Santos living also gets a premium upgrade with the introduction of Stilt Houses for sale in the Vinewood Hills, new Eclipse Penthouse Apartments with customizable interior styles and the debut of the upgradable and fully staffed Super Yachts now for sale on Docktease. The update also comes with new armored vehicles, two new weapons and much more.

Be Your Own Boss
Players with more than GTA$1M cash in their Maze bank account can choose to become a VIP with the ability to create and name their own organization, and hire up to 3 other players to serve as Bodyguards. All players will have access to the new SecuroServ menu in the Player Interaction Menu to become a VIP and build their organization. 

Steady Work
Players looking to join an organization as Bodyguards can look out for invites on the new SecuroServ app on the phone and can set their status as ‘looking for work’ via the SecuroServ menu. VIPs can drop ammo and armor for members of the Organization, as well as order new vehicles on-demand including the new Turreted Limo, and call-in favors like Ghost Organization to temporarily remove the entire organization from the radar.

Joining an Organization as a Bodyguard has the advantage of delivering a periodic salary of GTA$5,000, as well as bringing in additional cash and RP for taking on VIP Work and VIP Challenges that occur within Freemode. However, any cash winnings earned by an employed Bodyguard while not working for the Organization (such as completing Freemode Events or other Freemode activities like Bounties or Hold Ups) goes to the VIP. Bodyguards also enjoy additional benefits including accelerated health regeneration, frequent RP bonuses and stat boosts when in the vicinity of the VIP.

New Games and Challenges
VIP Work is the name for 6 new game types that operate directly within Freemode. In Hostile Takeover, an unknown package is held within a restricted area, and organizations compete to collect the package and deliver it to a set location. Sounds deceptively simple, but when the ‘package’ is a tank held inside Fort Zancudo, things get tricky fast. 
 
Asset Recovery sends your organization to LSPD stations around the city to recover impounded vehicles. It’s up to your outfit to free up those assets and return them to a designated location, while the cops and other players in the session will be looking to destroy your vehicles.
 
Piracy Prevention is attack and defense on the decks of a luxurious Super Yacht. Defending players spawn on the yacht while attacking players spawn on shore with access to boats, helis and Seasharks ready to head out and capture the upper deck.

Executive Deathmatch puts rival organizations in a Deathmatch-style battle inside of Freemode, with each VIP allotted just 10 lives.

VIP Challenges are intra-organizational Freemode trials that pit members against each other for their own personal gains. There are 6 challenge types including:

Most Wanted: The heat is right around the corner, with all players in the organization hit with a 5-star wanted level.  With a countdown of 10 minutes, the last player alive wins the challenge. 

Market Manipulation: All open convenience stores are blipped on the map. Players have to race from store to store in a hold-up spree to collect as much money as possible. When time counts down, the player with the most money wins.

Auto Buyout: Players must steal and deliver as many vehicles as they can. Every vehicle has a specific value displayed when you enter the vehicle, so choose your acquisitions carefully. The player with the highest total value of vehicles delivered at the end of the timer wins.

Yacht Life
For the ultimate room with a view, players will have the option to purchase a single Super Yacht from the Docktease website. Yachts function as floating apartments and come fully staffed with your own personal captain to shift the boat between your choice of 12 scenic mooring locations around Los Santos and Blaine County, and a bartender to serve drinks for you and your guests. Choose from a range of designs, with higher-end yachts featuring hot tubs, and additional complimentary transport options including helicopters and personal watercraft. Name your vessel and personalize it with a custom flag, hull color and a variety of lighting options. Each Yacht comes equipped with an anti-air defense system to help protect against unwanted attacks from rival Organizations and other Freemode attackers.   

Other New Features

  • 10 Stilt Houses are now for sale around Vinewood Hills, each equipped with a 10-car Garage and a Heist Planning Room
  • 3 Custom Apartments for sale in Eclipse Towers, with 8 customizable themed interiors
  • 10 new cars for sale, including a Turreted Limo and 6 new executive vehicles with armored variations
  • 2 new helicopters – SuperVolito and SuperVolito Carbon
  • 2 new weapons, the Heavy Revolver and Switchblade, each with VIP and Bodyguard variants
  • Players will now have the ability to purchase a fifth Garage or Apartment
  • New clothing and accessories, including Robes, Smoking Jackets, Pyjamas and Swimwear

Executives and Other Criminals also brings the new Adversary Mode – Extraction. Teams of Bodyguards must search, locate and safely extract an Executive Target from their downed jet before a rival Hit Squad intercepts and eliminates the target.

New Custom Avatars on Social Club
You can now take a mugshot or selfie of your character and use it as your Social Club Avatar. In addition to photos of your GTA Online character, this also works with characters from Story Mode, and any mugshots or selfies in your Snapmatic gallery you've taken should already exist as option under Snapmatic Selfies and Mugshots in your Social Club Avatar Settings. Photos created prior to May 2015 may not appear, and photos with meme text will not appear as options. The Art & Downloads section of the GTAV website has also been updated with the latest artwork from Executives and Other Criminals - in a range of desktop wallpaper, background and avatar sizes.

GTA Online: Executives and Other Criminals is available now as an automatic update for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

Rockstar Game Tips: Adversary Modes incl. Every Bullet Counts, Running Back, Slasher, Relay & Keep the Pace

Posted on December 14 2015, 1:43pm | Author: R* L | Filed Under: Games

In this edition of the Rockstar Game Tips series, we show you some of the best tips to dominate your foes in the new Every Bullet Counts and  Running Back Adversary modes, how to get the upper hand in Slasher, and tactics for mastering Relay and Keep the Pace from GTA Online: Lowriders.


Keep your back to the wall when reloading the Marksman Pistol in Every Bullet Counts.

Every Bullet Counts

As the title makes clear, in Every Bullet Counts there's no room to be wasteful. When you only have one life, one Melee Weapon and a Marksman Pistol with just two bullets, every decision and every shot must be precise and calculated. Take your time with this one, play it slowly and methodically - the hours you've put into stalking during Slasher will come in handy!

Remember that standing still for too long will give your position away on the HUD, so this is not the time for a full on stake out. However, if you're smart you can use this feature of Every Bullet Counts to your advantage: try staying still just long enough to lure your enemies in, moving at the last minute to ghost yourself off the radar and turn the tables. Another key feature of the HUD is the height indicator, this will let you know if blipped players are above or below your position. Don't forget that out of sight equals out of mind, so stay out of trouble for the first few minutes and let the others do the dirty work killing each other off or hacking away at each other's Health. By the time you get involved, your full arsenal and full Health will give you the best chance of closing the Round out as the winner. You could even listen out for the number of gunshots going off to perfectly calculate your advantage. If there's more than one other player left when you do eventually go steaming in, don't forget that your Melee Weapon will save your precious bullets for the final showdown.

If you do find yourself out of ammo early on, there are pickups dotted around the maps (and you can always loot the bodies of the fallen). Just use caution - the enemy can use that as a trap and while you're busy trying to load up on ammo, they'll be unloading theirs right into you.  If you can't find any and must resort to your Melee Weapon, stick to confined areas to give yourself the best chance of survival.


When on Defense, it's a good idea to keep one Defender back to act as a Safety should the Runner break through to the second-level.

Running Back

It's time to get out the playbook for one of the more recent additions to the GTA Online Adversary Mode canon: "Running Back". This fast-paced mash-up of Hunting Pack, Cross The Line and Offense Defense, feature a Panto-driving Runner. Aided by a team of Attackers, they must try to dodge their way through a determined line of Defenders and get to the end zone on the other side of the throughway. 

When on Defense, it's a good idea to keep one Defender back to act as a Safety should the Runner break through to the second-level. Those forming the initial line of attack should work as a unit to cover as many gaps as possible. You could even have all Defenders stay on the goal line, prevent-style. This doesn't give you much room for error, but will give you the most amount of time to coordinate your defense. A good tactic is to try to pin the Runner to the wall and apply the handbrake to ensure they can't move. If you're on Raton Canyon Bridge or La Mesa Bridge, you could even try to force the Runner off the side, out of the field of play, which results in an immediate win for your side. Focusing on the Runner is imperative, try to ignore the offensive Blockers by pressing the focus button (Circle on PS4, B on Xbox One, R on PC) to hone in on your target.

The Offensive team need to coordinate together to protect their Runner and create opportunities for them to break through the defensive line. To do so, get your Blockers out in front of the Runner, similar to how a screen pass is setup in football. Make sure you go one to-one against the Defenders - doubling up will leave an extra Defender alone to attack the Runner. With the Runner hanging back slightly, they can wait for a spot to open up. While doing so, the Runner should remain in the center of the field of play - hugging the walls will narrow your chances of escape and increase the likelihood of being pinned. If, as the Runner you do find yourself blocked, don't be afraid to backtrack and find a new line through the defense. Try to mix up your offensive play and surprise your opponents with a new strategy each round, purposefully creating blocking lines to leave a clear path for the Runner. 

And if you're looking for that authentic in-helmet experience, you can always switch to force the camera lock to First Person Mode.


Once three minutes are up and the Hunted become armed, their best chance of winning is to work together to take out the Slasher.

Slasher

This hyper-sensory game mode requires concentration, marksmanship and a rigid control of your own fear. Where you lack vision, you'll have to use touch, sound and instincts to ensure survival. Those who are yet to play the mode should know that the Slasher begins each round armed with a Shotgun and has three minutes to dispense with the Flashlight-wielding Hunted as they hide in the gloom and darkness. After three minutes, the game turns on its head as the Hunted also receive Shotguns and the Slasher becomes the prey.

As one of the Hunted, embrace the darkness. Rather than overusing the Flashlight and giving your position away, instead try using your Radar to navigate around the map. If you're using a game controllers, you will feel them vibrate with increased intensity and frequency as the Slasher gets closer to your position, so use this to determine whether they are coming towards you or moving away. If you’re going to move from your hiding spot, do so before the vibrations become near-constant or you run the risk of getting caught like a deer in headlights while switching positions. Just remember, all the pressure lies on the Slasher since you and your team all unlock guns eventually - you can always lie in wait rather than run around and risk getting shot. During your unarmed period, it’s recommended that you and your teammates spread out across the map – staying in groups is a high risk strategy, but if you don’t mind serving yourself up on a silver bullet platter, baiting the Slasher can catch them by surprise, and provide the opportune moment for everyone to work together to knock their lights out. Once the three minutes is up and you and your mates become armed, you'll certainly want to stay as close together as possible since two bullets are always better than one. Try using another member of the Hunted as bait – when the Slasher goes after them, you can pop out with a Shotgun blast, effectively turning the Slasher into the Slashee.

When you’re the Slasher, the clock is ticking so do whatever you have to do to eliminate your prey in that three minute window. By design, the Hunted can hear everyone including the Slasher, but not the other way around. As the Slasher, try tricking your opponents by telling them to meet you at a certain location, only to ambush them upon their arrival. This tactic is most likely suited for when you play with strangers – your friends are much more likely to call your bluff!  Alternatively, you can make sounds to distract them – which could possibly work with a lobby full of friends as well. This audio trickery is a roll of the dice as they might not buy it at all – but it’s worth a shot. To really startle your opponents, switch from the Shotgun to Machete for a quieter approach - the Hunted are expecting a bullet to the head, not a knife in the back.


In Relay, keep an eye on your rear-view to anticipate your teammate entering the pen.

Relay

Much like the track event of the same name, Relay sees you and a teammate tag each other in and out of a Race, lap by lap.

Assuming racing skills are equal between the teams, the changeovers will make all the difference in Relay. Once you've completed your lap and entered the pen, reverse your car to the very back of the pen, and swivel your camera around to view the final straight of the lap. From there, simply put pedal to the metal as soon as you see your teammate is approaching the end of their lap. With practice, you'll be able to leave the pen at the exact moment your teammate arrives and you'll be at full speed when you do so. Communication is imperative here - giving your teammate ample warning as you approach the end of your lap will allow them to be better prepared for the switch over. If in doubt, play it safe - if you exit the pen too early you'll have to return before you can start your lap. Just one of these penalties could be the difference between winning and losing. Finally, while waiting in between laps, switching to spectate your teammate can help you learn the course, share tips and understand where the checkpoints around the route are.


Use Slipstream in Keep the Pace to keep you up to speed and avoid getting shunted out.

Keep the Pace

In "Keep the Pace" the clue is in the title: stay above a minimum speed while navigating, jumps, obstacles and opponents or meet combustible elimination.

Since the minimum speed in this mode increases with every lap, you will need to adjust your tactics with each completed circuit. For instance, if you plan on racing dirty and spinning or shunting fellow racers, aim to do so in the first lap which will be more forgiving if your plans backfire. Later on in the race, use jumps to your advantage when shunting others: a small nudge just before their car leaves terra firma will be magnified greatly while in mid-air. More honorable racers shouldn't be afraid to ease off the accelerator in order to put space between them and other racers; don't forget that rounds can end long before the finish line, so play it safe rather than focusing on first place. Your tactics on turns will also need to be revised from traditional thinking: while regular racing rewards sharp turns corner cutting, taking wider turns along the racing line will prevent crashes and oversteers from which you may not have time to recover. Use Slipstreaming judiciously in Keep the Pace; while it can help pull your speed up when you're flagging, it may also push you over the edge just before a tricky turn, with your lowrider's traction unable to cope with your velocity.

Have any of your own personal tips that you've found to be successful? Please feel free to do everyone a solid and share them with fellow members of the Social Club community in the comments section below.
