Grand Theft Auto fans think that they might have found another GTA 6 teaser hiding in an advert – but does Snickers really have anything to do with Rockstar Games?

Even though Rockstar have not confirmed that GTA 6 is in the works, that hasn’t stopped loyal fans of the Grand Theft Auto series from searching high and low for any type of clues.

There have been possible in-game hints, as well as supposed teases that have been staring fans in the face like the Super Bowl, and actors revealing that they’ve worked on the game – even noting their all-new character’s name. Yet, it appears as if fans might have spotted a teaser in another unlikely place.

GTA 6 ‘teases’ have been popping up all over the place in recent weeks.

Yes, some GTA fans believe that Snickers is hinting at GTA VI – or at least using the hype for the new game in one of their ad campaigns. 

Their new image has appeared online and shows the classic Snickers bar being held up against a pink and blue background that is reminiscent of a Vice City loading screen. There is even the use of the iconic GTA font to say Snickers: Nuts City in the bottom left corner – which has only ramped up the speculation.

The new Snickers ad wouldn’t be out of place in Vice City.

With fans expecting GTA 6 to return to Vice City, or at least feature the Miami-inspired location in some way, these teases have got them guessing as to whether or not Rockstar is influencing the images in some way. 

To make sure that is wasn’t someone playing a trick like some jokesters did with a GTA 6 trailer, Redditor TRMTankEngine even got in touch with Snickers who confirmed that the advert is real and not a bamboozle.

Redditors have even been DM’ing Snickers about the post.

Though some fans might believe that it isn’t a coincidence that Snickers has become the newest company to use GTA Vice City themes in their advert, other Redditors pointed out that they’ve done similar for other games like Skyrim. 

Whether or not anything comes from this and GTA 6 is finally announced in the near future remains to be seen, but plenty of fans will be hoping it all links together.

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.
