UPDATE 1.2.566!

A truly great community is ultimately defined by the integration of it's members and ability. This is one of our most integrated updates ever. Every single component, every process has been considered and measured to make sure that it is truly useful and actually enhances the user’s interaction. This care, this consideration, extends on how we protect the fundamental mission statement of Lawless Roleplay.

This update was entirely designed and orchestrated by the entire community. A roleplay server for the players, by the players. You can find many suggestions, bug fixes and new features introduced was your ideas posted in the suggestions forums.

Our mission statement to you...
Lawless Roleplay is, and always, will be a community first and a game server second. We are dedicated to fostering an environment with a member-centric approach where all players have equal potential for in game success and community recognition.

Why play here?
Lawless Roleplay was originally founded on the principle that all players should rise or decline based on the actions of the person behind the player. We feel that success should be determined by a players actions and talents and not the whim of an administrative team. We have great code. We have great staff. We have great players. But most importantly we have a vigilant regard for your potential.

Is this a roleplay server?
We have worked to provide many in game tools for roleplay and it is absolutely encouraged however not required. We feel that any preferred mode of play that does not encroach on any other player’s enjoyment of the game is productive. Due to the harsh nature of game mode frequent player versus player violent interaction should be expected. However, this does not mean that players are allowed to kill other players for no reason.

Update 1.2.566 Overview

Lag Shooting

We've always been committed to make this server a place where everyone's opinion matters. We find it critical to our mission statement to make sure we harvest a community with diplomacy. Ever since 0.3z came out, we jumped ship to sync shooting and a lot of players did not like it. We had arguments often discussing what's best but we simplified things and made a community poll in which 62.6% of 351 members wanted it back.

For those of you who joined us after the 0.3z update, lag shooting is a system in which you will need to aim slightly infront of a player when they're moving to shoot them (instead of their body). We have some tutorials posted here. What's really great is that you don't need to download anything for this to take effect, simply just log in!

Lawless Roleplay is a server created by players for the players and this is exact proof. We have new automated hacking systems to help detect many new things.


Ever find yourself running wild in the magical wild west city of Los Santos, alone and hurt? Health regeneration will help you get back onto your feet by slowly increasing your health to 50%. It's incredibly smart and pauses if it detects that you recently hurt yourself or are in a shoot out.

This was another suggestion from a player who got bored of dying every time he had 1% health running to the sprunk machine!

New ban system and Deathmatch warning

Everyone has been unbanned and all deathmatch warnings have been reset. This is due to completely new systems. The new ban system upgrade begins our ability to administrate the server back to the modern age. We can expand the system in future to allow us to remotely unban players, have automated temporary bans and the ability to see why someone is banned on the site. We believe this will bring a new dimension in administrating the community by allowing admins to process ban appeals faster.

The deathmatch system will no longer decrease your weapon damage. However, it will restrict you from using weapons, joining events, paintball or duels. The weapon restriction is hourly and will decrease every time you sign your check.

Weapon restriction below 4 hours
  • You are given 4 hours of weapon restriction
Weapon restriction below 8 hours but above 4 hours
  • You are given 8 hours of weapon restriction
  • You are kicked from the server
Weapon restriction below 12 hours but above 8 hours
  • You are given a 60 minute prison sentence
  • You are given 12 hours of weapon restriction
  • You are kicked from the server
Weapon restriction below 16 hours but above 12 hours
  • You are given a 90 minute prison sentence
  • You are fined 50% of your total wealth
  • You are given 16 hours of weapon restriction
  • You are kicked from the server
Weapon restriction above 16 hours
  • Banned (time based on severity)
