Explosive Activity

At Domestic Battery we pride ourselves in being active gamers. We host multiple events per week across various timezones to ensure everyone can attend something if they choose to. Once vetted you are not required to attend anything as we are all adults and realize real life responsibilities comes first.

Teamwork

At Domestic Battery our focus on teamwork is key to our success. Whether in game or on the website we help each other with game tips and skill building through discussions, events, and contests. Our commitment to helping each other has allowed many of our members to become some of the best shooters and racers in GTAO and RDRO.

No Skill Required

Domestic Battery is an Equal Opportunity Crew. We have no requirements for skills!! We believe through our events your skill level will increase, and if they don't we don't care. As long as you have a positive attitude we want you with us and a wiliness to try anything Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption has to offer.

How to Fit In

Let The Bodies Hit The Floor

While we do not seek the most skilled players, what we do work on is team work. Our efforts toward planning specific strategies before battling other crews has lead us to over 100+ victories in Head to Head battles. Teamwork, practice and planning has proven Domestic Battery's "all around crew" status to be a force against crews that only focus on racing or combat.

Amazing Diversity

Here at Domestic Battery everyone is treated equally regardless of your sex, country, religion, etc... We believe our "assortment" of members brings out some of our finest and most comical moments. 

Crew Policy and Guidelines

  • Welcome to Domestic Battery Gaming (XDBX)

    Formed in 2014 for Grand Theft Auto Online, XDBX quickly grew to be one of the dominant crews of GTAO winning 110 battles against other crews and is in the top 50 in racing and deathmatches among thousands of crews . Now with the release of Red Dead Online we are shifting focus to that game as Rockstar Games releases new content for it and maintaining our GTAO presence.

    Our proven vetting process ensures we get the best player attitudes in our crew, perhaps some are not the best players but are always fun to play with. Skill level in our crew is superficial, regardless of skill we are looking to have fun.

    Our Events Team and our members work to host multiple events per week in GTAO and RDRO so that there is always something for everyone to do in multiple timezones.

    To join our website simply visit the Registration Page. If you wish to feel us out a little bit to find out what XDBX is all about feel free to read the many topics on our Discussion Forum or any other area of our website.

    This website is more than the hub for Domestic Battery, it is the focal point for the well known organization of XDBX, it is where we have become family while not playing our PS4's.

    • Crew Challenge 179 - I Fought the Law
      Crew Challenge 179 - I Fought the Law
      A RDR2 online solo challenge. Fairly simple; the winner is whoever gets the most law men kills in 5 minutes.
      Save a video that shows your General Stats where it lists the number of law men you have killed both before and after your 5 minutes is up.


      Timing starts with your first law man kill and just ends 5 minutes later.


      You'll need to time the 5 minutes yourself as you make attempts at this.


      Me and another volunteer or two can check the videos once you've uploaded them to Youtube or wherever else you use.


      It should be easy enough to deduct a couple of kills if they happen after 5 minutes 


      But please try to stop killing and show your stats just after the time is up. If too many come in after 5 minutes it may be difficult to know how many to deduct.




      post the video of your best score here


      any weapons


      any ammunition


      any location 


      feel free to eat food & drink tonics


      no penalties for dying


      how you do this is up to you; find a nice safe spot, rush in all guns blazing, shoot from horse back, blow things up, or whatever, it doesn't matter.

    • Sunday Racing - a league
      With hundreds of cars, and a huge collection of great tracks, I figured we could talk about a racing league. 
      I got a basic idea, but would like to discuss and develop it with some of you. Are any of you interested in setting this up with me? Maybe we could be at least 3 or 4 of us setting it up?

      Open to non-xdbx, selected cars each week, different type of points depending race type, non-contact, fastest lap, contact, endurance, dirty, about 1+ hour racing every Sunday.

    Effects of Eating (Overweight vs Underweight) and proper clothing (Stats)

    Note that the  rates were got with using the correct clothing for the temperature. 
    I started as underweight and ate 1 Prime Beef waited 5 minutes and switched lobby and repeat to gain weight. Weight is gained and lost in .75% increments.
    Underweight gives you from -7.5% to -5.25% Stamina Drain Rate and +7.5% to +5.25% Damage Absorption depending on how underweight you are (7.5% being a the lowest weight). Also gives you a 125% Core Drain Rate.
    Average (leaning to underweight side)  gives you -4.5% to  -.75% Stamina Drain Rate and +4.5% to +.75% Damage Absorption depending on how close to underweight you are. Also gives you a 100% Core Drain Rate.
    Perfect gives you a 0% Stamina Drain Rate and 0% Damage Absorption. Also gives you an 85% Core Drain Rate.
    Average (leaning to the overweight side) gives you a +.75%  to +4.5% Stamina Drain Rate and -.75% to  -4.5% Damage Absorption depending on how close to overweight you are. Also give you a 100% Core Drain Rate.
    Overweight gives you a +5.25% to +7.5% Stamina Drain Rate and -5.25% to -7.5% Damage Absorption depending on how overweight you are (7.5% being at maximum weight). Also gives you a 125% Core Drain Rate.

Domestic Battery Gaming

Online communities, in particular video game communities, have a reputation for negative and abusive behavior which is not always undeserved. That isn't us, Domestic Battery takes pride in being a crew for people who are mature. This means being able to treat each other with a basic level of respect, being able to cooperate during events, and being able to have fun together. We are all from different backgrounds with different life experiences. What we have in common is that we enjoy playing Red Dead Redemption 2, Grand Theft Auto V and other games in a social environment which is healthy and rewarding.
