GTA Online Has Crew Hierarchies Via Social Club

/ 3 years ago


Rockstar Games have detailed an interesting new feature of the Grand Theft Auto Online multiplayer aspect of Grand Theft Auto V. Apparently a feature called crew heirarchies will be introduced into GTA Online and is arranged by Rockstar Games Social Club. This crew heirarchy feature allows you to organise your online “crew” into different ranks each of which has different responsibilities. The ranks are as follows:

  • Crew Leaders can assign special rank to any and all members (Crew members will otherwise all be defaulted to the designation of Muscle) across the following four tiers:
  • Commissioners:  The Crew’s most trusted member(s) – that essential right-hand man or woman that the Leader relies on for Vice Presidential advisement and executive action. Commissioners have the power to manage and administrate all aspects of the Crew on behalf of the Leader, including the ability to promote members internally or invite new members in.
  • Lieutenants: Made members with specific privileges to keep the Crew in check and hand out promotions or demotions amongst sub-ordinate ranks. Crew Representatives and the mob of Muscle would be wise to keep their Lieutenants (and above) sweet.
  • Representatives: A tier of Crew members who have shown and proved their commitment to the clique – whether with ace performance in competitive modes, or just by rocking their Crew’s emblem faithfully since day one. Crew Leaders can assign these special players as Representatives who will have basic permissions to aid recruitment efforts.
  • Muscle: The rank-and-file mob of Crew members who are happy to play their position of causing some havoc Online, doing their Crew’s emblem justice and fighting for its good name. Muscle-level members may not have nor want any administrative power but they’re often the heart and soul of what makes your Crew fearsome. Ambitious Muscle who are looking to prove themselves to the Crew Leader and rise up the ranks may even prove a threat to their Crew superiors, if any are deemed to be slacking on their responsibilities or performance.

The feature is also being labelled as very flexible and Rockstar Games state that:

“There is no limit on how many Crew members you can designate to any one tier – so decide whether your squad will be a communal and anarchic free-for-all or a rigidly structured and exclusive Hierarchy designed to reward the chosen few and keep the Muscle thirsty for recognition?”

The feature will be brought in with Grand Theft Auto Online which launches two weeks after the actual launch on September 17th which is coming to current generation consoles only.

    That’s fine & dandy for online players but I have no interest in it at all… It’s the single player campaign I’m after.
