GTA Online Executives Bonus Week: Double GTA$ & RP in VIP Work & More (Feb 5th – 11th)

Posted 5 days, 1 hour ago | Author: R* M | Filed Under: Games

All this week in GTA Online, it's time for SecuroServ VIPs and their hardworking Bodyguards to get a payrise. Invest time in VIP Work and Challenges and the Featured Playlist from now through February 11th to double your earnings of GTA$ & RP. This week’s generous benefits package also includes plenty of discounts on the cars, helicopters and clothing featured as part of GTA Online: Executives and Other Criminals, along with a huge markdown on the threshold required to start your VIP Organization. There’s also bonus GTA$ & RP this weekend in the Running Back Adversary Mode. Read on full details…

DOUBLE GTA$ & RP VIP WORK & CHALLENGES
Whether you're aiming for that Employee of the Month plaque in an intra-organizational VIP Challenge or developing crucial teamwork skills in VIP Work, you'll earn twice the cash and RP right up through Thursday, February 11th in all VIP Freemode activities. This includes protecting your VIP’s Yacht (or attacking a rival's) in Piracy Prevention, assassinating a VIP-in-hiding in Executive Search or stealing the highest value vehicles you can in Auto Buyout.

DOUBLE GTA$ & RP EXTRACTION & DROP ZONE PLAYLIST
The quickest way to double your money this weekend is via the 12-player Double GTA$ & RP Adversary Modes Playlist accessible directly from the GTAV launch screen. A single button press will put you into a Playlist with other like-minded corporate raiders, ready to play two of the most recent Adversary Mode additions to GTA Online: Extraction & Drop Zone. And if you want to replay the Double GTA$ & RP Playlist, there's no need to reboot your kit! Simply find the Drop Zone & Extraction Playlist in the Rockstar Created Playlists section of the GTA Online pause menus.

GTA$500,000 VIP THRESHOLD
If you're keen to finally earn access to the Executive washroom or get that startup you've been talking about off the ground, for this week only the amount of GTA$ required to become a VIP drops to just GTA$500,000. Remember: there's no startup cost to set up your Organization, this is simply the amount of money you must have in your bank account to prove your VIP credentials. For steps on how to start your Organization, and a host of other useful gameplay information, check out our Game Tips on becoming successful VIPs and Bodyguards

25% OFF ALL EXECUTIVES & OTHER CRIMINALS CARS AND HELICOPTERS
Executives & Other Criminals also unleashed a slew of brand new transportation options for the under fire VIP with a taste for the finer things in life. For the ultimate getaway vehicle there is the Benefactor Turreted Limo; you also have the choice of the Imponte Nightshade, Declasse Mamba or Bravado Verlierer; and in case you missed them, there are now armored versions of the Gallivanter Baller, Enus Cognoscenti and the Benefactor Schafter. All of these vehicles will see 25% taken off their list price through Feb 11th. And the talk around the Schlongberg Sachs watercooler this week is a limited time 25% discount on the Super Volito Carbon and Super Volito helicopters.

EXECUTIVES WEEK BENEFITS PACKAGE
In addition to all of the above, we're throwing a few extra discounts the way of all Los Santos citizens to help them climb the ladder to the upper echelon of culture and sophistication. Look out for half price discounts on Robes & Smoking Jackets, a 10% discount on speedboats, sailboats and Seasharks from Docktease and a 10% discount on personalization options for Yachts.

DOUBLE GTA$ & RP IN RUNNING BACK - FEB 6TH & 7TH
And for those who prefer more traditional collision sports over executive team-building activities, there's a Double GTA$ & RP bonus for competing in the Running Back Adversary Mode this weekend.

Fun Sniper Jobs and Challenges from the GTA Online Creator Community

Posted 1 week, 1 day ago | 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.

Fan Vids: Cosmic Soliloquies, Squid Physics Cover, Bounty Hunter Action Sequence & More

Posted 1 week, 2 days ago | Author: R*E | Filed Under: Games

The latest collection of Rockstar-Editor-powered and other fun fan created videos highlights the wealth of creativity and talent that exists within the GTAV and GTA Online community. In this round-up we've got an inspired homage to our place in the universe, a harrowing chase sequence, a performance from a familiar virtuoso and more.

(GTA V) Carl Sagan - The Pale Blue Dot by Duggy
 
Building upon an idea first laid down by BiblicalReaper, Duggy uses the world of GTAV to create a rich visual backdrop to the soporific "Pale Blue Dot" soliloquy by astrophysicist Carl Sagan, taken from his television series Cosmos: A Personal Voyage.
 

GTA - We Were Set Up Cover by Squid Physics
 
The irrepressible one-man orchestra Squid Physics is back with another brilliant Rockstar Games cover, laying down tracks from 8 different instruments to perfectly capture the spirit of We Were Set Up from the GTAV Soundtrack. The attention to detail in the performance and sound production extends to the editing and mise-en-scène of the video, filled with cool angles and appropriate paraphernalia.
 
The Great Bounty - GTA 5 Short Film Machinima by Projects City | Cinematics & Machinimas |
 
Projects City uses the Rockstar Editor for making everything from classic GTA introductions to cool stunt videos. In this presentation he shows a harrowing chase involving a getaway driver being hunted down by a relentless bounty hunter, piloting a fully-loaded Buzzard attack chopper. Pursued by land, air and sea (even under the sea at one point), the climax here will keep you guessing on the outcome up until the very last moment. 
 


The Lowrider: GTA V by Bombastic Gamer Films

This fantastic trailer from Bombastic Gamer Films harks back a few decades to the days of powerful one-liners, tight pants and a rogue cop with an axe to grind.


GTA 5 - Bowling Bling (Hotline Bling Parody) by GTA Series Videos

Enlisting the help of their good friends Gtamen and 8-BIT BASTARD to help pen and perform it, the guys at GTA Series have concocted this hilariously catchy parody of Drake's "Hotline Bling," complete with dance moves inspired by videos from the late, great Yeardley Diamond.

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

Posted 1 week, 6 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...
