Come and join us for our Top Gear Mystery Car Night on Wednesday 3rd April at 20:00 BST. We will start out in free roam where we will have to follow the clues to find the Mystery Car. Once the car is revealed we will all buy it, modify it then spend the night racing it.
The price of the car will be less than $100k so don’t worry about having to spend millions to join in.
The usual rules will apply, don’t bring the emergency services along in free roam, don’t kill other players, race clean and respect the other racers…. basically don’t be a bellend.
Come and join Aslad & The Vans Society in Survive the Hunt, where the aim is to… well, survive the hunt! Saturday 6th April 19:00 UK time.
What is Survive The Hunt?
Essentially, Survive The Hunt is a freeroam game mode where one player is “hunted” by 8+ other players. There is no radar, HUD or name-tags in order to make this a bit more interesting. While there is no set tactic, the most popular and effective one is for the hunted player to “blend in” with the game AI – either on foot or in a car. This means obeying traffic laws, following the road at an AI-ish pace, stopping at traffic lights etc. The hunters can employ a similar tactic to attempt to locate and then ambush the hunted player. Communication is essential for the hunters to work effectively together.
If you want to see this game mode in action, check out FailRace’s YouTube series.
All players must stay within the city limits at all times. This area defined below on the map.
The inside of the airport fence perimeter and the docks/terminal area are also off-limits.
The hunted person has a two minute head-start on the hunters.
Weapons may NOT be used whilst in a vehicle. They can only be used on foot. The idea behind this is that it makes chases a bit more interesting than just head-shotting someone the second they’re spotted.
Any type of explosive weapon is banned.
One helicopter is allowed to be used by the hunters. It cannot use any weapons and must not have missiles (to stop cheating using missile lock).
Any type of weaponised or special vehicle is banned.
The hunted player may not camp or hide inside buildings, underground areas or in car parks.
They are allowed to briefly stop, but for no longer than a couple of minutes. This does not mean that they are not allowed to drive through road tunnels – they can, as long as they do not stay there for extended periods of time.
The hunted player should not be in a party or voice chat with the hunters.
