Crazy GTA Online car trick makes USS Luxington mission much easier

GTA Online players won’t always fancy landing on a fully loaded aircraft carrier for the USS Luxington Business Battle, but with a few simple shunt hop mods, you could fly over there in a car very easily. 

Rockstar Games add a number of incentives for players to take part in Business Battles all the time, boosting their rewards in weekly updates from time to time. However, the forces on board the USS Luxington does make it particularly more dangerous at times.

Well, the fine folk protecting the waters surrounding Los Santos don’t appear to be expecting people flying over in cars – which is no shock. Who would?

One Reddit user has shown people how to infiltrate the zone very easily, but not everybody will be able to pull it off. Let’s see how it works.

The USS Luxington might look like it’s waiting for you to jump on board, but it’s guarded by heavy military forces.

The eyes in the sky didn’t see redditor Matyaty coming, that’s for sure, after they set off across the high seas in a modded Issi Classic.

As seen in the incredible clip below, after floating into the air, the player was able to use the shunt hop feature of the vehicle to move themselves up and down. This only works because it is set sideways, which is important for those trying to recreate the stunt.

Without a trace, they were able to land on the carrier, take what they needed and flee the scene. Easy as it gets, really.

I think no one has ever done this from gtaonline

What is the USS Luxington Business Battle?

The USS Luxington Business Battle can be activated by diving on board the aircraft carrier, or even approaching it.

If you’re operating a ship or plane, floating around this zone might not be the best idea as they can shoot you down in an instant. Exploiting the shunt hop bug, though, seems to avoid all of that.

By completing it, you can earn $10,000 per player – so it’s definitely one where if you can make things easier for yourself, you can rack up money pretty quickly.


New Smash Ultimate fighter theory rules out fan-favorites as next DLC

A new theory in the Super Smash Bros Ultimate community suggests that the next DLC character won’t be one of the popular favorites for Fighters Pass Volume 2.

The theory has to do with the latest tournament event announced by Nintendo. As revealed on November 24, the upcoming tournament will only feature fighters who have a form of headwear such as a hat or helmet.

Normally these events come and go with fans not really reading too much into them, but there is a good chance that Nintendo would want a new fighter to partake in an event such as this.

Basically, if the next DLC fighter was going to be a character such as Doom Slayer, Geno or Ryu Hayabusa, they would have qualified for this event. As such, it would have made more sense to save this tournament until after they released.

Over on the popular forum Smashboards, fans started speculating what this could mean for future DLC.

“The tourney suggests that the next fighter does NOT have a hat, since they cannot be included,” wrote user Aerospherology.

“Considering Mega Man is also there, this includes helmets too,” another pointed out.

The headgear event includes helmets such as Megaman’s.

User pupNapoleon further noted that this would rule out Master Chief, Doom Guy, Excite Biker, Balloon Fighter and Mach Rider.

Furthermore, when considering full hoods, Mortal Kombat’s Scorpion and Ninja Gaiden’s Ryu Hayabusa get deconfirmed.

Smash Ultimate DLC fighters spots
There are still four more DLC spots left.

While the odds seem to definitely be against Geno for now, on the bright side, this could be a good sign for a fighter such as Crash Bandicoot who has long been rumored for Smash DLC.

Of course, this is still just a theory and it’s more than possible that the next fighter ends up coming with a hat or helmet. Nonetheless, it’s something to consider when thinking about just who the eighth DLC character to join the Smash Ultimate roster will actually be.
