It ain’t easy being the king of the underground arms trade, with no shortage of rivals aiming to take you down and the LSPD always lurking. But that didn’t stop elite weapons traffickers from pointing and shooting to capture picturesque moments of their rise to glory. We’re proud to present the winners of the #GUNRUNNING Snapmatic Contest, as well as some stellar honorable mentions.
Congratulations to the fabulous five photogs including four first time winners and one returning champion from classic Snapmatic contests of old — each of whom took home GTA$1,000,000 for their stunning work. Check them all out below, along with a rundown of this week’s updated bonuses and discounts in GTA Online.
#Gunrunning Snapmatic Winners
Harnessing the power of the sun, TheCoolDean tears through the crimson sky on his rocket fueled Oppressor in this wicked Snapmatic.
Like a chameleon, Vinewoodonfire illustrates just how effective the new Gunrunning camouflauge options can be while waiting for the perfect moment to strike – hiding in plain sight with an upgraded Woodland Camo Heavy Sniper Mk II and draped head-to-toe in digital camo. We welcome back Vinewoodonfire to the Snapmatic champions winners’ circle – their first since 2015’s #illgottengains2 challenge.
In this atmospheric yet unsettling shot, AceSomnium channels their inner Frank Herbert – capturing a heavily armed patrolman traversing the hinterlands with the Dune FAV.
Ripped from the reels of a Vinewood blockbuster, Cakesy82 and a fellow soldier in arms sprint through the woods strapped with an upgraded Carbine Rifle Mk II as death creeps up in the form an attack chopper shredding the terrain around them.
Happy-heart is one of the most consistent and prolific Snapmatic photographers out there, sharing fantastic work day in and out on Twitter and Instagram and we’re happy ourselves to present this well-earned first Snapmatic contest win. In “C O L O R S”, a rocket-powered Oppressor becomes a space ship descending upon the alien city of Los Santos. A trippy, neon-infused creation that shows masterful use of Rockstar Editor filters and saturation adjustment.
- “Dune FAV taking down the Titan” by AlexSniperBullet: Goliath is no match for David in this impressive Snapmatic from AlexSniperBullet, which has him rocketing past the fresh carcass of a Titan in a kitted out Dune FAV.
- “Weaponized Tampa” by Edgar_Draw: A perfect combination of beauty and brawn as the eponymous vehicle bursts through a sea of fire and smoke.
- “RUN-GUN” by Basimatic: Not one to stray from a firefight, Basimatic throws caution to the wind and hops on top of her APC to dish out punishment.
- “Oppressor” by TNJKRNY: Greeting the dawn of a new day high above the clouds atop an Oppressor.
- “San Andreas” by MiroAWhite: MiroAWhite posted up in the Shooting Range serving up some serious secret agent vibes.
