10 more Rockstar Verified Jobs added to Grand Theft Auto Online

Posted on February 6, 2014 AT 03:34am

Rockstar has added 10 new Verified Jobs to Grand Theft Auto Online, which include six new races and four deathmatches.

As usual, all 10 of these jobs will be available in Free Roam the next time you log into Grand Theft Auto Online. Rockstar also encouraged users to submit their creations for future verification, but added the disclaimer that it may modify the jobs slightly if they are selected.

“As ever, 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,” the developer wrote. “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.”

A brief description of each job can be found below:

Beach Side Race
After a quick tour of the Vespucci Canals, motorbikes and ATVs can really open it up along the coastal road from Vespucci Beach North to the Pacific Bluffs in this Race. We think papa_salada has picked the perfect vehicle class for this track, as the two and four wheelers can use their fearsome top speed to get some serious airtime on the canal bridges and that tricky jump along the final straightaway.

Custom Freeway gymkhana
With eight races already under his belt, SaltedCracka’s experience with the Creator tools are on display here. This short technical race around the docks features neat changes in elevation, a well-placed jump that fits perfectly with the flow of the race and some narrow, tricky turns that require deft use of the brake pedal. SaltedCracka has set the default vehicle as the Sultan – an excellent choice for drifting around the corners. The description for the Job pinpoints the final turn as the opportunity to “take it all and be #1”. Sage advice.

From Weazel to Weazel 
This tour of Los Santos and Banham Canyon is a great example of how to place pickups in a GTA Race, and it’s clear to see why even prior to Verification the race has been played nearly 2,000 times. Creatorcionyes hasn’t just randomly peppered the course with pickups, instead choosing to place them in groups just before wide open avenues. This allows players to open the throttle, or open fire on the long straights and really make a play for first position. In the final dash through Banham Canyon opt for rockets instead of speed boosts to thwart the front-runners just in time to take the checkered flag back at Weazel Plaza.

Rush Hour
Choose your vehicle carefully as tight handling is required to navigate the twists and turns on this long tour of the Los Santos highways. In what feels like a nod to “The Commute”, one of the more popular races in GTA Online, the civilians of Los Santos aren’t your only worry as up to 15 other drivers battle along the freeways. Expect a lot of paint to be traded along the way.

High Road 
A thrilling and chaotic race that goes from Los Santos’ town center up into the hills for some alternative agriculture before racing back to Hawick and a rendezvous with your friendly neighborhood “pharmacist”. Keep an eye out for some magnificent views of the Vinewood sign as you ride north into the hills.

The Pad of Death
An anarchic Deathmatch down at the Los Santos docks filled with an arsenal of powerful weapons, explosives and grenades. While there’s a healthy dose of chaos, there’s also enough cover to afford tactical play; the terrain is littered with trucks and containers to allow for some surprise attacks and melee kills. Top tip: watch out for campers on the highway overpass and be sure to grab a Sniper Rifle or RPG from the jetty to take them down.

Horseback Hell
Misterbocs007, a representative of the Payne Killers Public Crew, shows his considerable Creator skills with this Team Deathmatch at the Paddocks just off the Senora Freeway. Items and pickups are grouped together close to spawn points and behind cover. These reload points encourage respawning players to immediately re-enter the fray, while players who have survived a firefight can retreat to this cover to restock before the next round. For an extra kick, huge gas tanks litter the map – aim a few volleys from the grenade launcher in their direction for some satisfying multikills.

Lodge Battle
There’s certainly a slasher flick feel to the locale for this Deathmatch – an abandoned lodge in a remote forest. We recommend playing this one at night with the rain coming down for the full effect. We’ve seen a lot of melee-weapon Deathmatches created in small flat enclosed spaces, but fencing around the Bayview Lodge makes for an altogether different proposition. For those who prefer more explosive weaponry, pick up one of the Grenade Launchers from either end of the oval enclosure and launch them indiscriminately towards the center, or grab an Assault Rifle in the middle and clamber on to the steep pitched roof to get a vantage on the battles below.

Woodbury - created by RussianConcussin
RussianConcussin has created a Team Deathmatch with a story all of its own… A small town in the Blaine County Wilderness has been fortified with barriers positioning one team as the conquering aggressor, and the other as the defiant defenders of their fortress. This is a game of territorial control and teamwork, particularly if the lobby leader follows RussianConcussin’s recommendation to force players to start with knives and pick up more powerful weapons as they move through the map.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
