A Grand Theft Auto leaker who accurately predicted GTA V would be ported onto PS5, as well as Online updates, has revealed information about upcoming Rockstar projects.

This information comes from a leaker named ‘markothemexicam,’ who claims to have a roomate that used to work for Rockstar North before being let go along with nearly a 100 other employees.

In his latest post, the leaker claims that the upcoming GTA Online Update is about “the elite prostitution business” and that the “Mile High Club building will finally be open.”

Additionally, the “final” GTA Online update will be coming in December 2020 and it too will be a new heist: “I think that he [roomate] was referring to the last update for older generation,” he elaborated in the comments.

Returning to Liberty City in December

“[My roommate] said that the new location is Liberty City. Niko Bellic is coming back, with his voice talent Michael Hollick,” he added. “The heist is about robbing gold reserves in Liberty City. Many freemode activities and Quick Jobs will be added to remastered Liberty City and future updates for PS5 will be based on Liberty City.”

This does line up with what many players had theorized as the future of GTA Online having locations from previous titles in the franchise.

Moving onto GTA 6, the leaker wrote that his roommate did not work directly on it, but did do some programming. According to markothemexicam, GTA 6 will take place in Vice City during an unknown time period.

Furthermore, the game will have unique weather systems that will affect NPCs such as “random lightning strikes, and he also expects the announcement to be “next year,” but noted he wasn’t given a deadline.

This leaker has a history of accurate predictions

Back in April, Reddit user ‘markothemexicam’ made a post on the GamingLeaksAndRumours subreddit where he revealed new details about GTA Online which would later come true.

“Next GTA Online update deadline is July 2020, but might be moved to August 2020,” he said at the time. As it turns out, he was right as the Rockstar confirmed the update would be arriving this summer.

He also accurately predicted the GTA V PS5 port, but noted how GTA Online content would be coming to the game’s single-player campaign: “Every vehicle and weapon and other content from Online will be added to story mode and that they are planning to add new system of discovering the vehicles, like legendary bike and similar to RDR 2 animal collecting.”

As always, take all of this with a grain of salt, but it will be interesting to see whether anything of this new content he’s predicted ends up actually coming true.

GTA Online player discovers Up-n-Atomizer trick you would never think of

The Up-n-Atomizer might not look like its from the same planet as other Grand Theft Auto weapons, but one GTA Online player has discovered a handy trick with it that the everyday person would find helpful. 

The world of GTA 5 is full with violence, fast cars and loud sounds. Even if you get a few members of the community who stick to the roads and stop at traffic lights for a laugh, generally they are in the minority and the rest is utter chaos.

A gun like the Up-n-Atomizer is capable of great things, terrible, but great. Its powerful blast can send cars, buses, tanks, and even planes flying in the opposite direction.

However, one player has shown a more delicate side to the gun. Apparently, this is actually the perfect tool to move cars between parking spaces.

Moving cars isn’t difficult in GTA, but the Up-n-Atomizer definitely makes it more graceful. Well, if you use it right.

GTA Online trick for the Up-n-Atomizer

As seen in a clip posted to the GTA Online subreddit, user skelatorx7 proved that it’s not all about destruction with the weapon.

In fact, with just one small push, they were able to move their car perfectly from one place to another without doing a single scratch to it. Now, here it’s just one off the street and not many will care about that, but it would definitely be handy if it were your own insured vehicle.

As seen in the video, the player simply aimed in and fired low into the side of the car. Soon after, it flips perfectly into the next parking spot as if it was a natural way for it to happen.

Not everybody in the comments quite understood how it worked, though. One said: “How did the shot go through the car?” while another posted: “Car flip? How?”

Other users have found more crazy ways of using the Atomizer, of course, including the use of it to shift buses in the middle of the road. After all, they can be annoying, cruising around slowly in front of your speedy vehicles.

You never know, maybe in the future your mechanic will be blasting your cars over to you like this, rather than riding them to your path. Never going to happen, but definitely a funny picture to paint.
