GTA Online is a social experience, unlike its single player component GTA 5. To encourages players to band and play together, Rockstar has created a "Crew" system through their Rockstar Games Social Club. It was introduced way back in 2008 and players enjoyed its features when they played Red Dead Redemption or any other games from Rockstar. In this article, we are going to show you how to make a crew in GTA 5 and GTA Online. Furthermore, details about Rockstar Games Social Club and joining others' crews are also included as well.

How to make a crew in GTA 5 and GTA Online?

The first thing you need to do before joining an existing crew or creating a new one in GTA 5 Online is to sign up for an account of Rockstar Games Social Club. After that, you can form your own crew using this social club account or join an existing crew of other players.

Create an account on Rockstar Games Social Club

Below are the steps you need to do:

  • Enter Rockstar Games social club website
  • Click the yellow box Join the Club in the right-top corner
  • On the next site, type in some basic info like nickname, e-mail address, password, date of birth, and country.
  • Your password has to contain at least one capitalized letter and one digit, for the sake of security measures.
  • Once you type in all the data, click on Create an Account. This means that you accept the privacy policy.

You can also log into Rockstar Games Social Club using a social network account like Facebook.

Click on the icon of a social network and you will be redirected to the login site. Once you log into your account, proceed according to the instructions on the screen. After your registration is complete, you can create your profile in Rockstar Games and link your favorite games to your profile.

To create your own crew in GTA Online after you have registered an account on Social Club, just follow the below steps:

  • Click on Create a crew in the Crew tab on Rockstar Games Social Club website.
  • Type in the details on your new crew, such as name displayed on the Social Club website and in the game, and group's Tag and color. Please note that the name must be unique.
  • If you don't want anyone to join without your permission, tick the Invited only box. Leaving this box empty means you are fine with anyone joining the group.
  • Pick the type of the crew and its motto.
  • Afterward, customize the ranks admitted to players at certain levels. You can type in your own names for the rank instead of sticking to the normal ones.
  • Click on Save the crew if everything is ready. This option can be found at the bottom of the site.

GTA 5 Online crews have several internal roles designated by the Leader. Members may serve as Commissioners, Lieutenants, Representatives, or Muscle. The first 3 may promote members of a lower caste, and may also invite new members. Muscles may only invite new members. You can rename these roles when creating a crew.
