v1.8.30

As we release our 27th update this year, we enter a brand new period in the history of Lawless Roleplay. The implementation of light roleplay. We also have some other goodies included!

I just want to thank everyone involved in this update, it was extremely challenging with work and COVID-19 but we worked hard and kept our eye on the finish line. I would like to specifically thank our developers, beta testers and our media team for their hard work on this update. These guys do a fantastic job so that we all enjoy our playtime on the streets of Los Santos. 😍





Light Roleplay is finally here!

It's about time that we adjust ourselves to the new reality of building a healthy environment full of in character interactions. We have been under the influence of Dynamic Roleplay for so long to an extent that we feel like these changes are completely impossible, but with your help nothing is impossible! We will stay by your side down the road and will help you apply the new roleplay system, we have to help each other to build this new society by remaining professional and genuinely giving it a shot.

What's Light Roleplay?
Light Roleplay is the process of building in-character interactions without overdoing it, you will have the freedom to choose when do you desire to roleplay and in which situation you'd like to take part. The term "Light" also refers to not being compelled or forced to use the /me and /do commands all the time neither roleplay everything you do, you only have to adapt a professional in-character behaviour without breaking the Metagaming and Powergaming rules.

What's Metagaming?
Metagaming is the scenario of mixing real-life information with in-character information. When dealing with other players you always have to remain in-character and not involve your real-life information in the scenario, we have special commands where anyone can freely involve real-life conversations such as "/b" "/g" etc..

What's Powergaming?
Powergaming is roleplaying unrealistic situations by forcing them unto other players without giving them the freedom to react the way they see fit. When you're involved in a roleplay situation you have to give the chance to the other person to react properly, roleplaying is about give and take. Roleplaying scenarios which are against the laws of nature is considered as powergaming too, everything has to be realistic and fair.

Punishments for breaking these rules
We have purposely made the punishments mild since we understand the hassle of switching from Dynamic to Light roleplay, we will put effort into verbally warning every person who unintentionally breaks these rules and only take action against those who intend to rule break despite knowing the rules only for the purpose of ruining other people's fun.

First offence: Quiz (Must get 100%)
Second offence: Fine (5000$)
Third offence: Prison (15 minutes)
Fourth offence: Prison (30 minutes)
Sixth offence and above: Prison (60 minutes)

Here is a quick voice tutorial made by our beloved @Kent_Reggal in order to help the community understand the concepts of having light roleplay:








Find the candy scattered around the map before the timer ends to win some awesome prizes!

Use /giftboxes to get tips about the candy's location.



The top 15 candy collectors can be found on /topcollectors

The Gift Shop





The candies you earn by find candy can be used to buy any of the following from the gift shop. In order to check how many candies you have, look at the purple text just below where your money is displayed on the screen.

Top candy collectors
The top 15 candy collectors will each win awesome gifts which will be announced on Thursday 5th November. We have some killer prizes...

Halloween Day 31st Special Event
On the 31st October, throughout the day large shipments of gift boxes will drop. These are very special gift boxes which will all contain awesome prizes and candies. Furthermore, they will have really long time limits. So be prepared!

There will be special events announced soon so keep your eyes pealed!



Battle Royale is back again!

Battle Royale is a game mode that blends the survival, exploration, and scavenging elements of a survival game with last-man-standing gameplay. You can team, heal, use drugs but there must be only one survivor.



When a new Battle Royale round starts, you fly over wasted battlegrounds in a plane and will need to parachute down without any weapons or tools.

Once you land, you will need to explore and scavenge weapons, health, armour and tools to kill rivals. Some parts of the wasted battlegrounds like the abandoned warship contain more loot and sometimes extremely rare loot!

The map will slowly get smaller and smaller until there is one winner left! The winner gets a money prize and if there are more than 16 players, they also get an additional prize.

You can start a new Battle Royale round at the red dot in the map below:






We have now introduced HUD bandana indicators!



If you are sniping, and you have your bandana on and the rival gang member you are sniping has their bandana on, you can press your walk button (default button: ALT) to check if they have their bandana on. If they do then they will have a marker above their head.





Back by popular demand!

We are giving $10,000 FREE to all players who have 2FA enabled (click here to find out how to enable 2FA).

If you do not have 2FA enabled, you can enable it by using /settings in-game and then reconnecting to receive your FREE $10,000!
