An alleged leaked image of GTA 6 has surfaced and started doing the rounds on social media, but is it as real as some fans might claim? Let’s check it out. 

For quite some time now, Grand Theft Auto fans have been hoping for an announcement about GTA VI from Rockstar Games. However, the developers have remained ultra-silent on the game, leaving fans to dig for information elsewhere. 

As a result, there has been some good information – like having the first character apparently revealed by an actor’s resume. Yet, there’s also been plenty of bad details and claims too – especially when it was claimed that the game would be revealed at the end of March 2020. Yet, an apparent new leak has reared its head and fans are pretty split in their belief of it.

GTA 6 appears to be in development but there hasn’t been confirmation from Rockstar.

The image that has been doing the rounds shows, what is supposed to be, a Miami-like skyline with plenty of palm trees in the foreground and a pink tint to the sky – showing as if the sun is just rising or it is the early morning. There is even a Rockstar logo in the bottom right-hand corner to really sell it.

Though, as the photo was posted to the GTA6 subreddit, many fans immediately claimed that what they were seeing was fake and not related to GTA VI in any way shape or form. 

The original poster of the thread, swiftmachine79, even noted that there had been claims that the image stemmed from a mod of some kind for GTA V – which could be the basis for another elaborate prank about GTA 6

Despite the critiques and skepticism, the image does very much resemble Miami, so it could easily tie into the claims that GTA VI will take fans back to Vice City. 

However, until Rockstar finally announces that the game is in development and gives fans clues about where they are headed in GTA 6, everything is up in the air. We’ll just have to wait and see what they do.

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.
