Rockstar Games has announced that all this weekend, you will be able to double up on your earnings of GTA$ and RP for every GTA Online Adversary mode, including the brand new Every Bullet Counts mode released earlier this week that pits four competitors against each other with just two bullets and a melee weapon to defend themselves. Starting Friday 11th (today) and running until Sunday the 13th, take part in a wealth of fun Adversary modes, and make twice the money, and twice the RP. RP is very useful for players since Rockstar updated the Los Santos Customs options, meaning you didn’t have to win 50 races to unlock certain car modifications. You can now win a set number of races, OR reach a certain rank. This helps more players get there faster.
Here is a list of all Adversary jobs available to play in GTA Online:
In Keep the Pace, 4 players are tasked with racing around courses littered with jumps and obstacles while keeping above a minimum speed. Failure to maintain speed will result in the player’s car exploding, instantly eliminating the player. Last man standing wins. Think of circuit racing, with Speed consequences.
In Offense Defense, 8 players will be split into teams of two. One player would be the “Runner”, whose aim is to be the fastest to pass each checkpoint and win the race as per usual. The other player would be the “Blocker”, whose aim is to prevent opposing Runners from reaching the target before his team does. The Blockers can’t see the checkpoints, but can choose to follow their Runner to protect them from other Blockers, or slow down the opposing Runners vying for first place. The car classes here are Muscle or Sports Classics, while the Blockers are in SUVs or more powerful sports cars. Multi-cat and mouse if you will!
In Relay, players will be relay racing. 4 players would be racing the first lap, while their team mates wait on the start/finish line in a yellowed area. Once their partner completes their lap, the second racer goes. The cars waiting on the grid are ghosted, so there’s no foul play permitted for those racing. It can get hectic when one driver gets slammed off the road or misses a turn, and anything can happen in the 6 laps! You wouldn’t think GTA and Relay racing would be fun, but you would be wrong!
In Slasher, the players will be placed either as a Hunted or the Slasher. The Slasher must hunt down and kill the Hunted within 3 minutes with a shotgun while the Hunted only have a Flashlight. If the Hunted survive for 3 minutes, they are gifted a shotgun to try and fight back against the Slasher. This can get really scary, especially when the camera is locked to first person! When the Slasher gets close, the controller starts to vibrate heavier and heavier for the Hunted. Keep your lights off as much as possible. It can give away your position, obviously! The map selection for these missions is great; with chosen locations from single player and indoor locations throughout Los Santos. One awesome one is the Yacht from the GTA Online Heist mission.
In Running Back, two teams of up to 8 players square off from opposing sides of a roadway. The elusive Runner, behind the wheel of a Benefactor Panto, must go the distance and get across the end zone line at the far end of the highway with the help of their offensive teammates in BF Biftas. Meanwhile, their defensive-minded opponents (also in Biftas) must ruthlessly block, crash and pummel their way to try to stop them.
In Come Out To Play is where three runners make it to a safe location and a team of hunters hunt them down. The runners have more weapons as than that of the hunters, but can only move on foot and have only one life. The hunters are armed with free-aim shotguns and ride motorbikes and ATV’s, unable to get off of them.
In Siege Mentality, one players hold down a location on the map while the attackers attempt to kill them. Attackers have infinite lives but can only use Sawed off Shotguns, while the defenders have one life and can use their full roster of weapons.
In Hasta La Vista the player can either be a cyclist or trucker. The goal of the cyclists is to get to the checkpoint while avoiding getting crushed by a trucker. If all cyclists get crushed by the truckers, then the truckers win the game. The number of players for either team is 2. Neither of the teams will have radar visualization on other players. Hasta La Vista 1 is very much inspired by Terminator 2’s chase scene!
In Hunting Pack, the player is part of a team tasked to deliver a priority vehicle rigged to explode if it drops below a minimum speed, while the opponents race, ram and batter to take it down. Nominate someone to play the Nightrider theme over the headsets while playing this, for a super awesome experience!
I’m always available to play GTA Online, given any excuse to do so. Add me on Xbox One with the gamertag ‘Jorn the Eejit’, and invite me to play!
