Gang Wars - Explained in Depth

How it works

Gang Works by putting each gang against each other in a Kill on Sight (KOS) zone, with the last team standing taking home the trophy.

Gang Wars starts by creating a red circle that is randomly placed on the map which is defined as the area of play. Prior to the first zone, players cannot kill each other until the first zone "activates". Once the first zone is created, teams of no more than 10 members must move into, the first zone allows players 6 minutes to get into the zone. Once this zone "activates", then anyone who is outside of the zone, or leaves the zone once in it will be killed automatically.

Once the first zone activates, all teams within the circle have 5 minutes to fight it out to the death, with combat being allowed anywhere within the zone. After the 5 minutes has elapsed, players are permitted to leave the zone as the zone will slowly move across the map to another location.

Once the zone has started to move, players will have 5 minutes to move into the zone. After the 5 minutes the zone will activate and players will have 5 minutes to fight it out. Each time the zone moves, the zone will get slightly smaller, forcing teams to move closer to each other causing massive fights between multiple groups at once. Once there is only 1 team left, that team will win Gang Wars for that specific week.

Periodically, special gang wars will be hosted with specific rules, vehicles and weapons that can be used. An example of a special event gang wars is Shotgun/Sanchez Wars where all players must use the sanchez (motorbike) and a shotgun to take out other players, while all other vehicles and weapons are removed from play.

You must be in an official gang to participate in Gang Wars, however sometimes non-official groups who are showing good roleplay and good experiences on the server who are not official will be permitted to play in these gang wars.

Once all members from a team are eliminated, that Team is eliminated from gang wars.
