GTA 5 news!


By on 10:20 AM

During the "I'm Not a Hipster" Event Weekend, we issued a challenge for players to create custom GTA Online Jobs using the new content from The "I'm Not a Hipster" Update, and tag them #IMNOTAHIPSTER on Social Club for the chance to earn Rockstar Verified glory, along with GTA$1M and an exclusive HIPSTER vanity plate. Below are our five chosen favorites, along with an additional quintet of user-created selections from recent months to complete our latest full batch of new Rockstar Verified Jobs that are now available to play in GTA Online. Just bookmark any of the Jobs by clicking on the titles below or play through them all with your Crew by creating your own Playlist.
#IMNOTAHIPSTER Selections

Get to grips with the 6-wheeled Dubsta in Dubsta Warz.
 Dubsta Warz - created by Darteyld
Put the climbing ability of your new Dubsta to the test in this point-to-point Race where roads are for the weak. Starting out on Chumash Beach, get to the edge of the Grand Senora Desert as the crow flies, crossing mountains and scaling vertiginous slopes under twilight.
 The 80’s Turf War - created by GAMRZ_UK_SLiCkZ3
This neighborhood gang shootout uses over the top, action movie inspired weapons and careful placement of the cars included in the "I'm Not a Hipster" Update to give Grove Street a vintage feel. Players start with a Micro SMG and a handful of ammo, though more powerful weapons can be picked up if you can find them. The scarcity of ammo here encourages a varied approach, whether it's stalking the rooftops or demonstrating that the bonnet of a Glendale is not the best cover when there are RPGs flying around.
 Panto-monium Microcircuit - created by THEKerles
Proving that the Panto isn't just for old ladies and tree huggers, this intimate Lap Race is a test of car control and the ability to find the correct racing line. Expect tense bumper-to-bumper action, with very little runoff around some of the sharpest corners. You'll want to make the most of the few overtaking opportunities available.

Go off road in the Swedish Folkrace.
 Swedish Folkrace - created by MaximilianR18
Swedish Folkrace is a mixture of tarmac and off-road racing for inexpensive road vehicles - perfect for some of the cars featured in the "I'm Not a Hipster" Update. MaximilianR18 - a member & co-leader of The GR Live Crew - has introduced this local pastime to GTA Online, adding slippery turns that make for an intense Lap Race with plenty of sideways action. As the description suggests, try this one in your customized Warrener.
 HIPSTER DEATH RALLY - created by diggzzzz
The dirt roads by Senora Airstrip are the stage for this high speed off-road Race well suited to the "I'm Not a Hipster" Update cars. Watch out for the oil container on the first corner, or you could find yourself going out with the wrong kind of bang. There's also a ramp around half way to potentially slow you down or, if you come off a slipstream at just the right time, provide an opportunity for a stylish aerial overtake.
5 Additional Rockstar Verified Jobs
 The Coil - Created by Wormbo
A hair-raising Race for Supercars that snakes around the oval ring roads at Los Santos International Airport and then down a sharp detour past the Sightings restaurant and back again. Prepare for white knuckles gripping steering wheels and game controllers as you hurtle around fast sweeping curves, along single track overpasses or through the chicanes and hairpins around the restaurant. Long narrow sections overlap several times, maximizing potential for some spectacular high-speed crashes.
 The Los Santos Triangle - Created by Ma1evo1ent Cheese
After the Verification of Farm Fresh, Ma1evo1ent Cheese comes up with the goods once again with this short, technical Race with tight, Grand Prix-style corners that will push your car handling skills to the breaking point. Leave traffic off and go with Non-Contact to ensure that there are no distractions as you gun each lap trying to improve on your personal best. The default Supercar class will get around the course pretty quick, so go for a full 4 laps to really get a feel for it.

Don't take your eyes of the road as you Loop The Lake.
 Loop the Lake - created by twisterrk
This is a beautifully simple Lap Race around the Vinewood Lake that provides fantastic views of the Vinewood sign, the Galileo Observatory and the Downtown Los Santos skyline. Try not to get distracted by the scenery as you battle for position on a narrow curving road. Aggressive maneuvers will pay off, but don't be afraid to use the brake to avoid getting trapped behind the low tire walls at several corners. This Race plays well with most vehicle classes but try Muscle or Sports for a more technical challenge. Creator twisterrk is a member of the Reddit Dads Crew - specifically designed for those whose family commitments limit the time that they have to play GTA Online. If that's a familiar issue, get involved!
 Pit Stop - Created by IckyQualms
Thematically similar to previous verified Deathmatch Lodge Battle, this is a tight TDM map with plenty of hazards - don't linger too long by the fuel tanks! Pit Stop takes place in an underappreciated area of the map just off the Palomino freeway. Head off-piste to find the lone sniper rifle or make a play for the array of melee weapons to get a jump on unsuspecting opponents coming around corners.

Running for cover in Retaliate.
 Retaliate - Created by gun_harmony
A tight Deathmatch map that makes for a small, frantic 2-team TDM or compact free-for-all. A compact setup with good use of vertical space, plenty of cover and opportunities to flank the enemy team. Head in with your Crew for an 8v8 battle and seek retribution on any Crews you've got beef with.
With some spectacular Jobs released in this batch, we're really looking forward to playing them in upcoming Crew Battles and on our special guest streams. Keep an eye out on the Rockstar Twitch channel (twitch.tv/rockstargames) this Friday at around 4pm for a run through of these new Jobs in a special Rockstar Verified Edition livestream hosted by our friend Swiftor and featuring special guest players including TypicalGamer who’s been known to enjoy previous Rockstar Verified releases. If you haven't already, head over to our Twitch page now to hit the follow button and get an email notification whenever we go live, or follow us on Twitter for all the latest updates. You can also watch the stream here on the Rockstar Newswire where we'll be embedding it for the duration of the broadcast.

Please note that in addition to occasionally changing Job names due to taste, copyright or other reasons - we also from time to time will make other small edits to players' Jobs before making them Rockstar Verified. This includes, but is not limited to modifying spawn points, improving checkpoints or increasing/decreasing the amount of weapon picks ups for a particular Job. Once Jobs are Rockstar Verified, they become available for play across both platforms, so whether you're on Xbox 360 or PS3, you'll have all these newly Verified creations available in your next Freemode session (you can also bookmark them at the Social Club for easy access in your next session).

Go ahead and post your Job below in the comments (only once, please don't spam) with a punchy explanation of why it's worth checking out. We're always looking for new player-created Jobs to add to the Rockstar Verified program and the best way to get noticed is to have a solid Race or Deathmatch that's been thoroughly tested by the community and refined into the most fun and fair experience it can be.
