GTA Online hackers are ruining lobbies with bizarre God Mode exploits

GTA Online players have found that a number of hackers are handing out God Mode exploits but completely ruining their sessions in the meantime. 

Even though GTA Online is almost a decade old, players have been flooding to Los Santos in recent weeks after Epic Games gave Grand Theft Auto V away for free to PC players.

As a result, the multiplayer side of GTA V is as populated as ever – even though these new players are low levels and just getting started. However, with the game being given away for free, an influx of hackers have also been making themselves known by rolling out some hilarious, yet annoying, exploits.

Players have been flooding to GTA Online since GTA V went free on Epic.

In the case of Reddit user N_Lotus, they noted that they were recently turned into an orange ball by a hacker. The Redditor claimed that they were minding their own business inside their Arcade when their appearance suddenly changed. 

Plenty of players pointed out that the exploit wasn’t exactly a bad thing as the orange ball represented a God Mode hack where you can’t be killed by bullets. However, on the flip side of things, you can’t really do much else but roll around Los Santos when you are an orange ball.

The Redditor explained how they were turned into the orange ball.

Obviously, having hacks dropped on your player can be a cause of concern – especially if Rockstar decides to roll out an automatic ban wave for cheaters in the near future.

However, if this cruel and unusual fate falls upon you while playing GTA Online, you don’t have to worry about your future games being ruined as well. Simply quit out of your game and head to story mode.

By waiting for a few minutes inside story mode, you’ll be able to rejoin GTA Online and return to your normal self within a few minutes.

If you jump away from the hacks quickly, the Rockstar servers might not register the fact that your character has been infected by exploit and you might be alright when it comes to cheating bans later in the year.


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.
