GTA Online fans have got an exploit with the recently returned Peyote Plants that is allowing them to rack up vast sums of XP every hour. 

With Halloween on the horizon, Rockstar Games pushed out their yearly Halloween Surprise update on October 22, with another also set to come before the big day.

The first update brought new a new car to the Casino podium, cash and RP bonuses for Free Roam Events, as well as a whole lot more. 

In addition to all that, the always popular Peyote Plants made a return. These consumable plants are dotted around Los Santos, and when you eat one, you immediately become an animal. However, some players have also got different uses for them.

Peyote Plants can turn players into different animals – even Bigfoot.

Some Grand Theft Auto fans have pointed out that if you eat a Peyote Plant, end your animal hallucination quickly, save the game by changing your clothes, and then close the game off, you can build some incredible amounts of RP. 

This RP, as anyone who plays GTA Online knows, will help you level up your account, thus granting you access to more money, better jobs, weapons, and a whole lot of other content inside Los Santos. 

Obviously, with GTA Online having been around for seven years, many players have already reached the levels needed to unlock pretty much everything, but the grindy exploit might be useful for newer players.

  1. Consume a Peyote Plant
  2. End the hallucination by holding down the right arrow on your D-Pad
  3. Head to a house or store and change your outfit
  4. Quit the game off completely by returning to your dashboard
  5. Load GTA Online back up, find a new session, and repeat the process

Of course, by using the exploit, you do put your account at the mercy of Rockstar Games. The devs have, in the past, rolled out account resets and bans for similar exploits. 

However, seeing as Peyote Plants aren’t around permanently, and will go away on November 5, some players might ignore the risk of a reset in order to get some quick leveling up under their belts.

TenZ finds strange Valorant mechanic that ends Phantom vs Vandal debate

The debate on whether to use the Vandal or the Phantom in Valorant is effectively over for Cloud9 ace Tyson ‘TenZ’ Ngo after he saw that the latter can easily kill while moving.

Unlike counter-strafing, which lets players pull off quick stop-and-move kills, TenZ was made aware of the Phantom’s incredible accuracy while moving at a “full running sprint.”

“(I was playing against a pro team) and I swear that I got running-Phantom’d so many times that I actually tried doing it myself,” he explained. “And it actually works really well. But it’s at a certain distance where it’s actually viable.”

There has been a ton of talk among the Valorant community of instances where running headshots were happening at a surprising rate. And TenZ was equally shocked to see that it was easily reproducible in the game.

The Cloud9 pro thought he was accustomed to CS:GO’s shooting mechanics that makes hitting a player unrealistic if you’re moving, in most cases. That isn’t the situation with Valorant, however, since the Phantom gets good shots off at 5-10m away, according to TenZ.

“I like the Phantom way better than the Vandal now, I’ve joined the dark side,” he said. “This gun is just, honestly, way better. One thing that you can do with the Phantom that you can’t do with the Vandal (is get a kill while) full running sprint.”

The important distinction to make is that the Phantom gets really inaccurate while moving, like most of Valorant’s arsenal; however, at a certain distance, the spray generally remains in the local vicinity of where you want to shoot, which makes running while spraying a lot more forgivable.

“I’m actually going to (use this) until Riot pulls their s**t together and make it so you shouldn’t be able to running spray consistently. I feel like you should be able to running spray every once in a while,” TenZ added, astonished.

The C9 star has his pros & cons for the Vandal and Phantom, but this mechanic seems to have pushed the scale over in favor of the silenced-rifle.

It’s unclear if the Valorant devs made this an intentional and distinct feature to the Phantom. But until there’s a significant change, TenZ has his preferred pick between the two.
