Today, Rockstar have announced a new set of 10 more user-created GTA Online Jobs, officially approved and easily available across both platforms as the fourth installment in our series of Rockstar Verified Jobs. Here’s a preview of the new Jobs with some detail on how they earned the Rockstar Verified stamp of approval.
LSC Great Eight – Created by DrAtomic1
While it may look like a simple figure 8 track at first glance, the changes in elevation and tighter hairpins require a steady hand and intense concentration. Running around different levels of the Olympic Freeway this course will challenge all aspects of your driving. A strong octo-theme runs through this race: as DrAtomic1 points out in the description, the track itself is 0.8 miles long, and the maximum number of players is, you guessed it, 8.
Getting High and Low – created by El_Cactus (right)
Precision is the name of the game in this high octane motorbike race along the narrow dirt paths just above Cassidy Creek. Maintaining control of your ride is absolutely essential as overhanging pine bows could take you out at any moment. Go easy on your first run, the corners come thick and fast and the only way to win is to make the fewest mistakes. Anyone reaching the end without spinning off the path and falling into the creek below at least once should be pretty pleased with themselves.
Dirt Track Derby – Created by N8thok
While there are hundreds of Jobs arranged around the horse racing track in the Palomino Highlands, we picked out N8thok’s effort due to the considered placement of obstacles and pickups around the track that change this from a simple lap race to a white knuckle derby. With 16 players jostling for position, the slightest nudge could force you into the back of a burnt out bus, or off the track entirely. Masters of the art of drifting should be able to nail the curve corners and slingshot their vehicles into the straight sections. Final positions in the race will be decided by inches, the smallest mistake could be fatal.
Through The Grapeseed – Created by LoveLikeJazz (right)
As Creator LoveLikeJazz describes it, this is a “lengthy lap race around Grapeseed with lots of long stretches and a few tricky turns. Watch out for those Sandkings, they think they own the road.” Also, watch out for the stretch that goes the wrong way up the Senora Freeway, adding an extra element of danger to each lap. Avoid oncoming traffic to gain the advantage over your fellow racers, and keep an eye out for some spectacular crashes.
Observe and Race – Created by The_Gemte
In this one, 3 quick laps of the circuit leading up to the Observatory have been laid out using a variety of barriers to make for a very fluid and natural race. Overtaking skills will be put to the test as the only straight comes in the form of a narrow tunnel section where race leaders can easily defend against drifters. Corners will be your only option to snatch the lead, so aim for the racing line, brake late and hope for the best!
Senora Desert Hills – Created by: ZardozToast
“Enjoy the best switchbacks in Blaine County with this winding off-road race up and down the hills of the Grand Senora Desert.” A long and winding race that was selected for the unique way it allows players to drift down several dirt roads on the hills of the Senora Desert. Expert control and vehicle selection is essential in order to avoid drifting off the edge of a hill and down into the rocky valley below.
Battle GTA – Created by KS-GTA (right)
In the swamps outside Fort Zancudo KS-GTA, lone member of The Assassins Monks, has set up a pitched battle for 2 teams featuring power weapons and heavy machinery. The key to the success of this Deathmatch is balance: a cluster of incendiary props in the center field provides adequate cover for an infantry battle while powerful weapon pickups such as RPGs provide a fighting chance against aircraft. This is an excellent map for Crews to put their communication and teamwork skills to the test.
Sandy Shores Circus – Created by datwista111
Creator datwista111 modestly describes Sandy Shores Circus as a “simple race”, belying the difficulty of the 45 degree turns around Sandy Shores town that will send cars criss-crossing each other all over. There are a few extra features of this race that really make it stand out, including crashing through a fence and into a resident’s garden and a final straight that results in a high speed jump straight into the Alamo Sea… just the thing to cool down screaming hot engines.
Paintball! – Created by yoduhh62 (right)
A flat expanse of sand on Del Perro Beach is transformed into a dynamic and challenging Speedball-style arena. With skillfully placed props like sandbags, construction fences, wrecked vehicles and tires, this Deathmatch forces players to dart between cover and expose themselves to gunfire when dashing for powerful weapon pickups. Stealth and timing are key here, and we recommend using teamwork to create distractions while you outflank and outmaneuver your enemies.
Nurburgring – Created by Mr_Grandis
The latest real-world homage to get a verification nod is this impressive take on Germany’s famed Nurburgring. As Mr_grandis describes it is a “very technical and dangerous track with blind corners, bumps and long straight road.” Recreated around Banham Canyon, Tongva Hills, Great Chaparral and Vinewood Hills, we like the way it challenges endurance and driving skill in equal measure.
Rockstar state that in addition to occasionally changing Job names due to taste, copyright or other reasons, they 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.
