Rapping legend Dr. Dre has stunned Grand Theft Auto players after making a surprise appearance in the new Cayo Perico heist for GTA Online. 

The game’s latest major update rolled out on December 15, adding a brand new island to the mix, not to mention fresh weapons and a list of vehicles we’ve never seen before.

If you thought the fun stopped there, though, you would be wrong.

Many players have been running through the setup missions for the Cayo Perico heist and discovered Dre makes a cameo. It looks like Rockstar Games kept this one under wraps.

The Cayo Perico was always going to be an exciting one for GTA players.

Where to find Dr. Dre in GTA Online

For those wondering where to find him in GTA 5, you’re going to have to download the latest Cayo Perico update first and foremost.

After that, based on posts online from fans, it looks like he will appear as part of the setup missions.

Players made the discovery a few hours after the patch went live in-game, as Dr. Dre was spotted walking off a private plane by user soulslikegamer.

They’re not the only one to have noticed his arrival in the series, either, as DJ Pooh also posted a photo – as he’s been added to the game as well.

Many fans have been reacting to the news, and as you can imagine, the majority are ecstatic.

If you haven’t yet seen Dr. Dre appear during the heist, the footage is quite cool to see as well. A group of “big guns” arrive and as you might expect, from the group flying out of their SUV comes the rapper along with DJ Pooh.

Whether or not the iconic figure will play a major part in the heist remains to be seen, but if he’s appearing in the early stages, there’s no reason why he couldn’t be.

Valorant’s new Agent Yoru has a serious bug with his teleport ability

Agent 14 has made a huge impact on Valorant in the early phase of Episode 2, but players are finding that his Gatecrash can actually deal damage to Yoru if they take the rift tether from high altitudes.

The Japanese dimensional rift walker was made for deep infiltration and essentially breaking through the frontlines via covert play or creativity with his sneaky ability kit. Unfortunately, some are finding that a strange interaction with his default E, Gatecrash, could spell doom for Yoru.

After placing the rift tether, you can reactivate the ability to teleport to that location. Essentially, Reddit user ‘AzdarLP’ saw that the game will count your falling damage based on how you entered the rift.

Meaning, if you jump before teleporting to a lower altitude on the map, the game will register the appropriate fall damage as you ‘land’ on the other side of the tether.

You get fall damage if you jump before using Yoru’s Gatecrash (this doesn’t happen if you don’t jump before using it) from VALORANT

In application, AzdarLP showed how it looks like when going from Split’s B Heaven into site. They let the Gatecrash rift tether move near the pillar of the site then jumped before reactivating the ability.

Upon landing, they had shaved off 20 HP from the short fall. That doesn’t seem to be an intended consequence of Yoru’s ability, as some theorized what could be going on behind the curtain.

“I’m not sure if anyone’s noticed, but the way his TP [teleport] works is it literally drags [Yoru’s character] model down, or to wherever his TP is,” user ‘Launchers’ said. “Sometimes, when on his team, you can see his model flying through the map lol.”

A bug has been found with Yoru’s Gatecrasher ability.

The Valorant community is hoping this is the result of a bug, but we’ve seen a similar interaction with Omen’s Shrouded Step before where players would similarly take damage as they jump while teleporting to a lower lever.

Dexerto tested out the bug in the Firing Range, and at the right distance, you can easily get chunked down to 1 HP or worse as a result of the interaction.

It’ll be interesting to see if Riot patches out the apparent glitch since Yoru, in particular, is an incredibly agile Agent, this bug can deter from fast or creative play styles that early adopters have been showing.
