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.

GTA Online Creator Player-Made Challenges: Human Darts, Skeet Shooting, Triathlons and More

Posted on August 13 2015, 10:49am | Author: R* X | Filed Under: Games

In addition to the structured Races, Deathmatches, Captures and Last Team Standings we've seen with the GTA Online Creator, scores of talented Job architects have also been using it to construct their own unique and fun gameplay challenges. Like the wildly popular Snipers vs. Stunters, these Jobs have been forged by savvy Creators using the aforementioned gameplay modes, but with a few instructions and 'house rules' style twists that are laid out in each of the Job's respective descriptions.

Below, we've highlighted a few of the more unconventional creations that we think are worth checking out - complete with the original Creator's ground rules and links to bookmark them on Social Club.

A Runner gets their payback in Railroad Deathrun.

Railroad Deathrun by Ozoonn (PC)
"Snipers will try and stop the Runners while they run on the obstacle track, there are various traps for the Sniper team to activate, Runners will try and reach the bus to then torch the Sniper team. Set game to Forced + Pickups."

The Commissioner of the Boondock Amish Crew has created this LTS-style ‘deathrun’ where Runners must try to survive not only Sniper rounds but also the Truck traps laid about the route. If you're on the Runner team be sure to keep on the move and plan your jumps carefully so as not to fall off the course. As a Sniper, timing your shots is key.

Pearls Triathlon by thejoker_420 (PS3 & PS4)
"01: Triathlon across Del Perro Beach - 02: Start on a bike, reach the first stop at Pearls restaurant near the pier - 03: Jump from the pier, swim between the buoys, reach the second stop on the sea shore - 04: Run until you reach the third and final stop." 

By using the GTA Race option, thejoker_420 has laid out this particular Race in a GTAV Story Mode-style triathlon. As is tradition, you'll be required to cycle, swim, and run to get to the finish line, so be sure to have your stats maxed out before attempting to run this gauntlet.

Skeet Shoot Minigame by WilkoKing (Xbox 360 & Xbox One)
"One player drives up the ramp while the other player(s) shoot RPGs at the car in mid air. Swap out drivers every 3 attempts." 

The Leader of the Opressive Monarchy Crew has created mostly races so far on PC but luckily for the GTA Online community, WilkoKing has also taken a stab at creating this unusual challenge based on skeet shooting. In place of clay targets, a player must hop into one of the 22 Cheetahs lined up and make their way up the Weeny ramp while the rest of the combatants shoot RPGs at this high flying super car. Players have their choice of vantage point but your best bet is to make your way to the top of the LSIA Parking Garage (if you hadn’t spawned there already) where you can not only find a great shot but tons of RPG ammo.

Flex your Muscle (car) in this floating platform derby.

Sky Derby Muscle Cars by MaxTorque87 (PC)
“Team Demo Derby on a Platform in the sky. Grab your team color car and knock off the other team's cars. If you fall off you are out of bounds and disqualifed. The Team that knocks all the other teams cars off in 5 minutes wins.”

This Muscle Car demolition derby floating high above the Terminal was created by Commissioner of TEAM TIVAN Crew and also served as an inspiration for one of the Jobs in our ILL-GOTTEN GAINS Part 1 Event Weekend livestream. With a max player count of 30, players will find themselves on the teal or hot pink team to battle it out in their choice of Blades, Phoenix’, Gauntlets, Dominators, and Slamvans – the last of which seems to be easily pushed off the platform, as Jelly and company can attest.

Scavenger Hunt by m1ndDr1fter (PS3 & PS4)
"Brief cases are hidden somewhere all over San Andreas. Find them before the other team." 

Commissioner of the GTAAdventuresPS4 Crew, m1ndDr1fter, has used the Capture Creator to construct this county-wide Scavenger Hunt spanning the entire GTA Online map. Have your team split up and take to both air and land in order to locate the hidden Security Cases and bring them back to your base. Keep in mind you can hold up to 3 cases at a time before needing to drop them off, and don't be afraid to ditch your ride for another one - there are alternate (and possibly better) means of transportation parked at most of the bag drops.

Bloody Darts by DpLoMaTiKiMuNeT (Xbox 360 & Xbox One)
"Play darts, but instead leap from a building and use your body as the dart. Scoring is as follows; Within tire line-5 points, inside concrete circle-10, dark blue circle-20, pink circle-30, center circle-50, dead center-100. If you knock over cone/tire stack, double score. First to 500 points wins. Sniper rifle provided for watching other players."  

The leader of the Mirror Park Drifters Crew has created a whopping 639 jobs on Xbox, and Bloody Darts is definitely one you won’t want to skip. Starting high atop the Maze Bank Tower, take turns flinging yourself from the roof to the ground below and land your flailing body on the impromptu dart board surrounding the plaza fountain. Be sure to jump from the specific points DpLoMaTiKiMuNeT has noted on the map with large "Go Right / Go Left" signs next to the tire stacks for your best shot at landing a bulls-eye.

Have you constructed an epic challenge using the GTA Online Creator? Make sure to tag it #Challenge on Social Club and drop us a link either here in the comments or via Mouthoff so we can check it out - we may feature it in a future article at the Newswire, or play it on our weekly livestream for all to see.

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.

GTA 5 - BMX Street Ninja: Episode #3 (BMX Street Stunts) by ErasableNinja

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. Mike describes the main driver character here as "One of the many Angels of Death. When the night sets in his sole purpose is to establish a balance between death and life."

Grand Theft Auto V - Happy by Olanov

In the tradition of past greats like the late Yeardley Diamond, video director Olanov uses Story Mode mods here to showcase the usually austere members of Los Santos' finest cutting loose and getting down, sometimes on the job.

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

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.
