GTA Online bug is completely changing Diamond Heist approaches

GTA Online players have been encountering a strange bug that is changing up their Diamond Heist attempts – altering their entry position and how the robbery plays out. 

After years of waiting, GTA Online fans finally got what they’d been asking for on December 12, access to the Casino in Vinewood. Aside from gambling away with their GTA Cash, players also wanted to take things a step further by being able to loot the casino’s vault.

As a result, the Diamond Heist was launched, letting players go on an Ocean’s Eleven style robbery – complete with different vault contents, robbery disguises, and getaway vehicles. Players can choose whether to go in loud, sneakily, or pull of a con – but the latter is being affected by a bug.

The GTA Diamond Heist can be completed in multiple different ways.

The change in entry point was noted by Reddit user Finnman0907, who showcased a video from their recent Diamond Heist attempt. They rolled up to the Casino as a part of the Bugstars con but managed to set off the guard at the back door.

The gang sort of blew their cover, attacking the security guard and causing their entry to bug out. Though, after a pretty long loading screen, they had been transported elsewhere. Instead of entering the casino through the Staff Lobby, they were dropped where the Gruppe Sachs con would begin – with the armored money truck thrown in for good measure.

After showing off the video, some Redditor’s responded and claimed that the bug had actually helped Finnman0907, as they were able to do the heist through an easier method.

Others noted that the bug has been around for a little while and you will always end up with the Gruppe Sachs robbery. Yet, your cover will be blown once you’ve robbed the contents of the vault.

Whether or not Rockstar will fix it, however, remains to be seen but players won’t complain about an easier heist. It means money at the end of the day.


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.

Perfection from gtaonline

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.
