GTA Online apartment exploit patched but players have found a workaround

A Grand Theft Auto Online player has found a workaround for the recently patched apartment duplication glitch, though, the steps are pretty extensive. 

While the majority of GTA Online players are grinders – completing missions, playing for hours on end, and taking advantage of all the double money rewards – some players do decide to bend the rules by using glitches and exploits.


This can go as far as using God Mode hacks to troll a session or just duplicating items – be it money, casino chips, or even cars. For money, in the past, has come through the apartment transfer glitch but a recent background update from Rockstar got rid of it.

However, some players have already put their heads together and figured out a way to get around it, opening up the possibility of duplicating money through different apartments once again.

GTA players have been using apartments to duplicate money.

The lengthy workaround was pointed out by Claw 7K, who noted that what they’d found was working for PlayStation 4 users, but there were other methods for PC and Xbox users might be on the outside looking in. 

Compared to the four or five steps of the previous workarounds, the YouTuber had fifteen steps to follow with a lot of it centering around dropping into story mode, pausing the application, and following some patterns with pressing certain buttons on the controllers. 

The GTA Online fan also noted that it was a “semi-solo” method as you only need to join one random player during one of the steps.

Some players noted that it also worked on PC and ended up rewarding them with around $3,000,000 each time. Though, as the Rockstar servers took a little bit of a dip on July 17, they were prevented from testing it any further.

Rockstar has been sniffing out these workarounds and exploits with small updates to GTA Online, but there is no way of telling if this one will hang around or if they’ll patch it soon enough with a ban wave like the Casino Chip glitch.


New evidence surfaces suggesting GTA 6 Vice City map leak is real

New evidence has been found leading fans to suggest that a leaked map of Vice City, supposedly from GTA VI, is completely legitimate.

If you’re out of the loop, here’s the story so far: in 2018, a random Twitter account ‘9teen8E5’ posted several images claiming to be the map of GTA 6. While these images were forgotten about, a new photo, which surfaced on October 9, lines up perfectly with the previously leaked images of the map.


Basically, retroactively, the older leak has become more legitimate. But now folks are beginning to look deeper into the 9teen8E5 Twitter account and have spotted new evidence that might be crucial to proving the leaks were real all this time.

These images surfaced in 2018. Could they be real?

The account only follows one other: VG_Marketing, which, in turn, only follows one other account – as you may have guessed, it’s 9teen8E5.


This is key because the VG_Marketing account features several photos that suggest it belonged to an insider of sorts, based on pictures of E3 in 2015 and GamesCom.

However, the ‘smoking gun,’ of sorts, comes in the form of a photo of a calendar, which has a caption that reads, “Bored at the office. Burnt out. Looking for a career change.”

Upon further inspection, users have noted spotted what appears to be the Take-Two Interactive logo on top, suggesting  thatwhoever ran the account worked for Take-Two, which owns Rockstar Games – the developer of GTA.


Could 9teen8E5 have been getting insider info from VG_Marketing or could this have been another account from the same individual?

Furthermore, the final tweet made by VG_Marketing states, “This will be my last tweet. Bye. Maybe I’ll see you in ‘Miami’.”

Of course, Vice City is a stand-in for Miami within the Grand Theft Auto universe, so this could be further confirmation that the next destination in the series is right back where one of its best games was located.


While this new evidence doesn’t completely prove that the map is legitimate, it’s certainly a major new twist to the mystery that is Grand Theft Auto 6, which, of course, hasn’t even been officially confirmed yet.
