The GTA Online Community Hits the Road with Bikers

The streets of Los Santos are swarming with some of the baddest Motorcycle Clubs and independent riders you’ve ever seen and as proof, we’ve gathered some of the best videos, GIFs and Snapmatics from members of the GTA Online community. Zadrium and other members of the prolific REBL Crew got right to test driving some of the vehicles, weapons and businesses from the new update. Similar to his work on the Western-themed Ricochet that we featured in August, Zadrium perfectly captures the tone and feel of what it means to be an outlaw. Only able to sit idle around their Clubhouse for so long, members of Western Brothers MC take their bikes for a twilight ride. Watch for a solid melee attack at the end, causing a rival member of The Lost to eat dirt. There's no better way to spend your day off than racing through traffic on two wheels. DeejayJeanP of Logic Films suits up and puts the new Shitzu Hakuchou Drag bike through its paces across the sunny streets of Los Santos.   This new grenade launcher is a handy little gun. A "biker" in his own right, Redditor AllUpNSmoke demonstrates what a capable little killing machine the new Compact Grenade Launcher can be in this GIF. With a bank shot even Michael Jordan and Larry Bird would be envious of, AllUpNSmoke takes it from behind cover and off the wall for nothing but death.   Even those with the roughest of edges can't be hardcore all of the time. From the throne of his Faggio Mod, Vine's Koopapoopascoopa proves that under all that macho posturing is just a man in heart-emblazoned boxers. Biker Melee Duel w/ estrangedhd #GTAV #PC #Bikers #SnapmaticArt @RockstarGames — Alex (@iAlexBullet) October 5, 2016 May the best man live. Snapmatic veteran AlexSniperBullet and estrangedhd demonstrate one way to settle beef on the muddied up trails of Southern San Andreas. Wrooom! Pew-Pew! #GTAOnline — Freddy Los Santos (@FreddyLosSantos) October 4, 2016 Poppin' fools and wheelies simultaneously, FreddyLosSANTOS shows off the new Nagasaki Chimera and Sweeper Shotgun. After hosting the Mac Miller livestream last month, Kevin LaSean (aka XpertThief) stuck around Rockstar HQ long enough to get a sneak peek at GTA Online: Bikers. Watch as he and realrosesarered get a taste of that biker life. #GTAOnline Bikers DLC Live Stream (with @Gtamen) — GTA Series Videos (@GTASeries) October 4, 2016 They've got legs. It didn’t take long for the gang at GTASeriesVideos to put this little dance number together, demonstrating kicks worthy of any Rockette. Loving this #BikersDLC — Sariska (@Sistoska) October 4, 2016 She's got the looks that kill. Don’t be fooled by the fishnets and mascara, Snapographer Sariska will make roadkill out of you.   Papa Wolf reborn!

Cunning Stunts Come Alive: Incredible Saves, Vehicle Showcases & More From the GTA Online Community

The GTA Online Community has risen to the occasion of capturing great footage and Snapmatics of all things Cunning Stunts. From folks like XpertThief maneuvering all the crazy loops and turns of Rockstar-created Stunt Races to GTASeriesVideos showcasing the vehicles, below are some of the most entertaining clips, GIFs and Snapmatics we came across.     Fresh off the official Rockstar Cunning Stunts live stream they did with us a couple of weeks back, the gang from Achievement Hunter continue the thrills and hilarity in a stream of their own. AH go through Racing Alley, Turbine, Downtown Loop and Threading the Needle, all part of what appears to be their new favorite GTA Online update.     From GTASeriesVideos, here's a showcase of the three newest Cunning Stunts vehicles, with a full walkthrough of all customization options AND a showcase of the interior view and performance on the streets of Los Santos. If you're in the market for something with power and considering the Bravado Sprunk Buffalo, MTL Dune or Vapid Contender, check this video out. You can also peruse some other recent rides our old friends tested out here. I can't Believe I made that epic recovery #GTAOnline #CunningStunts @louis_1993 #PS4share — Alton Mclawhorn (@Altonmcla) July 27, 2016 About halfway through Point to Point Stunt Race Zebra and sitting in fourth place, Alton Mclawhorn (aka 911 NYC Crew Leader nikobellic250000) clipped a fellow racer mid-jump, a circumstance that easily could have taken him out of contention. Instead - and to his surprise - Alton stuck the landing and moved into first place. Watch here for the full Race and Alton's ultimate victory. That save though... #GTAOnline @RockstarGames — Broughy (@Broughy1322) July 25, 2016 Racing maestro Broughy1322 also found himself in a bit of an airy situation. After completely overshooting a jump, Broughy hung tight through several revolutions and was able to straighten out post-landing and regain composure. That was indeed one hell of a save. New Vapid Contender! #GTA #GTAOnline #GTAPhotographers #CunningStunts #RockstarGames — Cassy (@CassyKathy) July 26, 2016 Seasoned GTA photographer Cassy adds to her ever-growing collection of jaw-dropping snaps, setting up her fresh-from-the-factory Vapid Contender in a proud pose for this abstract shot.     XpertThief aka KevinLaSean was quick off the mark in testing out the latest bunch of Stunts Races and new vehicles in a recent live stream. Alongside RealRosesAreRed and other friends, Kevin plays through Forest, High Flier and others. Check out a recording of the full broadcast above.     Staying calm under pressure, SAEVARM3 harnesses the power of their inner wallrider to stage a remarkably elegant recovery behind the wheel of an Annis RE-7B in the Super Stunt Race East Coast.     Tiff92Productions' flamboyant "helicarpter" jump on new Stunt Race Zebra looks to be setting them up for a rough landing. Amazingly, Tiff escapes unscathed and lives to stunt another day. The new MTL Dune looks so sick :))#gta#RockstarGames @RockstarGames #mtldune#cunningstunts — czechgamehunter (@czechgamehunter) July 26, 2016 Geared up and ready to rally, czechgamehunter takes the MTL Dune for a spin on the dusty roads of Blaine County.     MODESTMOUSE89 risks it all with a perfectly timed shortcut -- complete with a barrel roll -- to blitz past two other hopeful racers in East Coast. By their own admission, they only managed to land this trick once, so you might want to think twice before trying this one at home!     With a penchant for highlighting new GTA Online vehicles, Logic-Films and DeejayJeanP are back, this time honoring the sleek and powerful Emperor ETR1. Deejay intercuts flattering angles of the ETR1 with beautiful shots of a sun-soaked San Andreas to show the obvious appeal of this new Super.   If you've got any excellent Cunning Stunts or Rockstar Editor clips you'd like to share with us, be sure to hit us up via Mouthoff or share them in the comments below.

Cunning Stunts: Choice GIFs, Videos and More

Death-defying drops, audacious overtakes and white-knuckle wall rides are all in a day's work for the stunters of Los Santos. Thanks to Cunning Stunts, racing has well and truly been taken to the next level. There's been no shortage of awesome clips, GIFs and snaps showcasing the new content. We've rounded just a few great ones for you below, so buckle up and check out what the GTA Online Community has been up to so far as you get ready for more stunt-ready vehicles and wild original Races coming out this week:     After kitting out the new Desert Raid and RE-7B with his signature green Crew color, Jelly puts his new Super car to the test in epic fashion, grabbing the W on the Downtown Loop and East Coast Stunt Races.     Vikkstar123 and The Sidemen explore the dizzying heights of Maze Bank Ascent before trying their luck with the Western Gargoyle on Vinewood Downhill in this hilarious clip. Enjoy as they try to prevent JJ from winning at all costs. Cool guys don't look at explosions, and Sights Ov Gta is no exception to the rule. Clearly up to no good, Sights flees the scene in style on his shiny new Western Gargoyle. What an overtake! #CunningStunts #GTAOnline #PS4share — ScavengerX3 (@ScavengerX3) July 12, 2016 A smart and smooth overtake leaves two competitors for dust as ScavengerX3 and their Progen Tyrus quite literally live life on the edge. Amazing Recovery from GrandTheftAutoV Just when it seemed all hope was lost, Kappamari pulls it back from the brink with an utterly fantastic save on the devious downhill portion of Plummet to put themselves back in contention.      An unconventional shortcut proves fruitful for self-professed "God of Needles" TezzaMcJ, who avoids the traffic to storm from 6th to 1st in a matter of seconds.   A photo posted by Grand Theft Auto V (@gtafiveonline) on Jul 13, 2016 at 11:43am PDT Proud new RE-7B owner gtafiveonline holds on to his Annis after carefully navigating a ring of fire above the streets of LS. Como pilotar con estilo. #GTAOnline #CunningStunts #GTAOnlineCunningStunts #PS4share — Mi nombre es Sueño. (@Icadrian) July 12, 2016 Icadrian's quick reflexes and a timely nudge from a more unfortunate opponent result in the slick avoidance of a collision and a neat side-flip flourish. View post on Happy coincidence or well-timed, cunning tactic? Either way, redditor Pho3nixR3mix's cheeky tail-swing puts paid to any dreams of victory their fellow racer may have been clinging on to.  If you've got any excellent Cunning Stunt clips you'd like to share with us, be sure to hit us up via Mouthoff or share them in the comments below.

Fan Art: GTA Cinema, 3D Printer John Marston Model, L.S. Noire & More

This latest round up of amazing artistic endeavors features a 3D printed diorama, silver screen tributes, a bit of L.S. Noire, and some impressive Grove Street inspired ink that would make The Families proud. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter and Instagram where we feature the latest fan creations, and as always if you’ve got something of your own, feel free to share it in the comments below for the community to check out. Self described "T.P. Enterprises Associate" and dedicated Trevor Philips fan Bulmaradkee's took two weeks to create this portrait of everyone's favorite hipster scoping out his next victim.DesertEagle used a 3D printer to set up a "piece scene from Red Dead Redemption with two cowboys dueling face to face", which was featured on 3D printing blog Shapetizer. The article includes schematics of the background set models so that you can compare the start of the process to the final diorama. Last year we featured this WIP by tattoo artist Maggie Brennan AKA @MaggieMaryJane. After spending a whopping 70 hours in the chair, the results of this inking are a truly impressive Grove Street tribute on her mate @mightdieb. The little details of the piece tucked into every corner are great, including the shoefiti and searching helicopter. GTA Photo Mashup by Slattsy This intense mashup created by Slattsy is insanely epic. Cargobobs, car chases and explosions in spades are what Grand Theft Auto Online is all about. L.S. Noire by VaultScout By altering a shot of the Oriental Theatre in Vinewood, VaultScout gives Michael De Santa and Los Santos the L.A. Noire treatment. The limited colour palette, dreamy impressionist style and 1940s attire complete the noirish atmosphere of the piece. Be sure to check out the widescreen version to appreciate every detail.  Three Bullets for Thessa by Koalindl Lightning has struck twice as deviantARTist Koalindl has also tapped into the L.A. Noire/GTAV crossover genre. Last August, we featured a few of this German artist's picture perfect postcards. For his follow up - Koalindl has started creating fan fiction in the form of an original graphic novel titled “Three Bullets for Thessa - An LS-Noir-Comic." As it is a WIP, check out Koalindl's deviantART page as he intends to update it frequently as the story progresses. Space Monkey 3D by Sarnosful After teasing us with a sneak peak several weeks ago, Spanish artist Sarnosful delivers a stellar storyboard of an imagined scene from Space Monkey 3D. Go go Space Monkey!   Heist Time by Stefi-Delly Packed in their custom Kuruma with Flare guns blazing "This is pretty much how we carry out every Heist" - solid plan indeed. Grand Theft Auto Movie Posters by GTAist GTAist has brought entertainment from the GTA universe to life with these homemade movie posters. Be sure to check out the full GTAist article to see the high-res images of Meltdown, Republican Space Rangers, and Impotent Rage. In our last go-around, we featured the celeb character creator stylings of CharmlessRogue; it seemed only fitting to feature Commissioner of the Evil Allstars Crew, Zebfar, who specializes in creating Snapmatics that are inspired by different movies. The time and meticulous coordination involved in these scenes may be daunting to most, but it seems Zebfar and company are more than happy to rise to the occasion with some impressive results. For more movie inspired Snapmatics, take a look at the full gallery here.   Have you seen or created an exceptional bit of fan art or great Snapmatic photo that you'd like to share?

Bende might be watching a bit too much CNT as he was inspired to create this original homage to hentai heroine Princess Robot Bubblegum.                                                                                             GTA V by rhysapgwyn South African artist Rhys ap Gwyn commemorated finishing GTAV Story Mode with this piece encapsulating his experience on tumblr: “To celebrate me finally completing the game as well as the PC edition… here is some GTAV action… This actually started out being very different, with Trevor being the only character as part of a triathlon… Then I wanted all three, then it transformed again and again into this… I kind of liked the chaos and then citizens going about their days, even if that’s not quite how it is in the game. Then, one day, one fateful day, I saw a screenshot of a car hitting a helicopter… For those PC gamers about to play, I thought it was an astonishing experience, and you’ve got them sumptuous textures, which basically means you’re in for a treat.”                                                                      Jack Kelso Study by Smorescakediigii aka Smorescake has a striking, vintage style in this haunting watercolor series featuring L.A. Noire's Jack Kelso.                                                                                 Fan-Rock by EierWippeEierWippe was good enough to share this one with the Social Club community in the comments section to our last Fan Art gallery. A handmade Rockstar logo stone carving - quite the impressive and unique custom trophy. And finally, CharmlessRogue has also carved out a unique specialty – becoming renowned as a “celebrity character creator” virtuoso using the GTA Online character creator’s 2nd character slot to craft some uncanny likenesses.
