Our Record

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
News Ticker
  • RDRO PLAYERS - be sure to invite the unvetted members to whatever you are doing so they can get notes!!! This is crucial for their vetting and lack of game content/crew events makes it more difficult at this time!!!
  • Be sure to RSVP for Anniversary Events, don't miss out cuz you didn't click a button...

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.

    • Whacked out Wednesdays
      XDBX 5th Anniversary Celebration !!!
      Join Con as he hosts some of his All-time XDBX favorite jobs!!! At the usual WoW time slot...wear something Crew Blue or Blue, please.

      This will be both a GTA and RDR2 event / playlist (I have just bought RDR2). My plan is to see how doing GTA and RDR on alternate weeks goes. As Spud is hosting GFred Fridays (GTA) every other week I think I will do this so that WoW is RDR the same week GFredF is on. That means GTA next week (12th), RDR the week after (19th), etc for the time being. Hopefully by the 19th I'll have figured out something to do in RDR.

      Event host is just me, but happy to take on co-hosts if others want to help out. I can't always guarantee being able to start things at 21:00.

      Also, same as it is now, the WoW timeslot should be available for anyone who wants to host a one-off playlist / event (can be any game the crew plays as far as I'm concerned). Just let me know a couple of weeks in advance in case there is something specific planned already.

    • Crew Challenge 177 - XDBX 5th Anniversary GTA meets RDR
      Crew Challenge 177 - XDBX 5th Anniversary GTA meets RDR
      For the crew 5th anniversary we have a combined GTA - RDR 2 player team challenge. One teammate goes for the fastest lap on a GTA time trial, the other earns as much money as they can at a butcher in RDR with 10 bullets in 10 minutes. You don't have to decide now which teammate does which event, feel free to try both and work out your best combination if you like.

      Every $ earned on the butcher challenge will reduce the fastest lap time on the time trial by 0.2s. The fastest adjusted time wins.

      This will run from now for over 2 weeks, so you have plenty of time before and after the anniversary weekend.

      Please sign up now and say if you wish to only do the GTA or only do the RDR part. When we have enough participants I will randomly team people up according to which parts they want to do. But do feel free to make your own teams if you want to.


      GTA time trial

      Warp GP

      social club link

      do make sure it's Warp GP and not Warp GP (R)

      custom supers

      fastest lap

      any time of day, any weather, any number of laps, as many attempts as you like, no run ups

      non-contact if racing with others


      RDR Butcher Challenge

      you have 10 minutes and 10 bullets

      save a video

      timer starts at a butcher, showing you have nothing in your inventory to sell to him

      return to a butcher (does not have to be the same one) within 10 minutes

      leave your video running to show your final money total after selling everything

      so long as you start selling within 10 minutes that is fine

      you may only kill animals with a gun

      any gun(s) and any bullets you like

      you may only sell animal parts from animals you have shot dead and carried in your satchel or on your own horse

      RDR online only, not story mode



      Starts now

      Ends 19:00 GMT 4th Feb

      Spreadsheet - later


      Thanks to Pete for suggesting this and to Lann & Banks for advice.

    • Monday Motor Mayhem Mischief and Merriment
      Event Title: Monday Motor Mayhem, Mischief, and Merriment (M5)
      Event Author: Lann
      Calendar: Crew Events Calender


      Monday Motor Mayhem, Mischief, and Merriment (M5)

      21:00 UTC (9PM UTC)


      A racing and driving focused weekly playlist that is in the evening EU time.

      May have the occasional combat or adversary job, but again vehicle focused. 

      While it may bear some striking similarities to TNT, and may even feature some of the same events, it most decidedly isn't TNT. It doesn't happen on Thursday.

      A chance to enjoy the whole range of vehicles in the game, not just the best 5% of them.

    Ace Combat 7 PSVR Mission 1
    Played a few different modes, but had to try a PSVR mission and it is absolutely sick graphics (and nauseating if you haven't had your VR on for awhile). If you have played Star Trek Bridge Crew and were amazed with the way it looked this will blow you away.

    • In a world covered in darkness… one man remains… and that’s me, Ted Park, Project Lead of At Sundown: Shots in the Dark! When we started this game, we never expected it to be more than a side project to keep us entertained between college classes. We also never expected to get up on stage in fancy suits to accept a student BAFTA. Or show off the game at PSX 2017. Now as we get ready to sit next to the Playstation greats such as Kratos and Nathan Drake on 22nd January, I’ve learned to always expect the unexpected – especially if your game is about springing out from the shadows! At Sundown: Shots in the Dark is a love letter to the stealth games and action-packed local multiplayer games of yore. The rules are simple – when you’re in the light, or when you shoot, you can be seen by everyone. When you’re in the dark, you’re invisible. If you ever wanted to sneak up on your friend in the dark and shoot him from behind, now you can! Virtually, I mean. We designed this game to be really easy to pick up and play, while throwing in a lot of features for those that want a deeper experience. Each weapon you unlock brings a new twist to the battlefield; the revolvers’ bullets bounce off of walls, for instance. We’ve also created a bunch of maps with fun mechanics. Dodge lasers that reveal you in the Factory levels, or boogie down in the Disco levels, where the floor panels light up to the beat! There are 11 weapons and 18 maps to unlock in total. All in all, we wanted At Sundown: Shots in the Dark to be a great time with friends, since we were college students when we started this. So grab some drinks and call up your buddies, and let the shadow shenanigans begin! Or hop online and test your skills by playing ranked matches, to see who truly is the king of the shadows. And since we’re in Europe, At Sundown: Shots in the Dark will support English, French, Italian, German, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, and Polish text. Whew, did I miss anything? To celebrate our first release, we’re discounting the game during launch week by 20%! This also includes the Playstation exclusive Avatar edition, which gives you the game and Playstation Avatars of all 4 of our characters: Dawn, Eve, Dusk and Midnight. Hope to see you soon… At Sundown! The post At Sundown: Shots in the Dark is a PS4 multiplayer arena battler with a stealth twist appeared first on PlayStation.Blog.Europe. View the full article
    • @Con I’ve seen all of them except Vice.
    • Quite a few people have told me Green Book is a must watch. I learned about the Green Book a few years ago and the sad reality of it all, so I can only imagine people learning about it through the film, it has to have some impact for sure. I probably wont watch the animated noms but have a Making of Spiderverse video lined up on my "To Watch" Youtube list.
    • How many of the Best Pics have you watched? I have not watched any of the Best Pictures but will start tonight. I'm surprised a Marvel film made it into Best Pic category, I didn't see that coming.
