GTA Online player discovers perfect way to stop ‘God mode’ cheaters

Grand Theft Auto 5 players will know by know the frustrations caused by having cheaters in their games, but for those who spot others using glitches and bugs to their advantage, this player has a perfect solution.

There is nothing worse than joining public lobbies in GTA Online only to be repeatedly crushed, especially by somebody that’s spent their whole life earnings on the best vehicles or weapons in-game, and being wrecked by an enemy gaining an unfair advantage with glitches can be just as annoying.

The game is host to a number of fun glitches, even if they’re not supposed to be there, with members of the community finding hilarious ways to launch cars into the sky like it’s GTA IV again. While some cheaters using other tricks might have become very tiring in the online mode, one player has found a hilarious solution.

The Cargobob can be a useful vehicle to help combat GTA cheaters – and when it comes off, it is hilarious.

Reddit user AnthonyESLV has shared a perfect anti-cheating strategy with the GTA Online subreddit and it genuinely might be the most effective method we’ve seen so far.

Some developers have cracked down hard on cheaters in recent times, including Rockstar who handed out bans and made it significantly more difficult for illegal providers of GTA cash to keep running in their game. After seeing this way of stomping them out, though, some devs might have to take a different approach moving forward because this looks much funner.

They wrote in their Reddit post: “He was doing the God mode van glitch ,so I picked him up and put him in the water lol,” sharing the footage online for all to see.

Using the Cargobob helicopter, the player tracked down the cheater using a god mode glitch, picked up their vehicle using the hook and dispatched of them in the best way possible – launching the enemy into the sea.

Worth noting that this type of chopper is quite slow, though, so anybody trying this should watch out for missiles from players on the ground. For those who haven’t used the Cargobob much, in terms of the hooking ability it has, one user in the thread also had some quick tips to get them up to speed.

Redditor Lety- said: “A tip from someone who spent more hours than would like to admit trying to get good with the Cargobob:  aim for the spoiler, not the roof. And if you can, “dropping” the hook on top of the car instead of dragging it across it for some reason seems to help the game engine and it hooks right up.”

It doesn’t get much better than that, and must have been quite satisfying as well when they pulled it off. Whether or not more GTA Online players will adopt this tactic moving forward, particularly when others are using glitches in their game, remains to be seen. Surely, though, it’s worth a try!

Rockstar Games have, once again, given GTA Online players the chance to turn into animals by finding the Peyote plants that are scattered around the map. So, here’s where you can find them. 

Even though it is now seven years old, GTA Online is still a vast world where players can do pretty much anything they want to – provided it falls within the limitations of the game, that is. 

While things like heisting the casino, racing, and transporting business goods, are pretty realistic, sometimes Rockstar Games dives into their bag filled with weird and wonderful tricks that will have players laughing for hours on end.

There are a tonne of things to do in GTA Online.

With their October 22nd update to GTA Online, the developers have once again given players the chance to turn into animals. Yes, that’s right, swapping a human’s body for an animal’s one on the virtual streets of Los Santos.

There’s nothing too complicated about the process – you don’t have to do some special job for Lester or have a certain set rank on your Rockstar account. Instead, all you have to do is find a Peyote plant and you will be transformed into a random animal that you’d find in GTA V.

Peyote plants are the key to becoming an animal in GTA Online.

These Peyote plants, however, aren’t stuck in one area of the map – they are spread out all over the place; you can find them while just out for a drive. 

Thanks to gosunoob, you can use the below map to find every single Peyote plant location in GTA Online. All you have to do is go towards one of the markers and your controller will start vibrating the closer you get to a plant. 

You will know when you’ve found one because the vibrations will be pretty strong and you will see a small green circle with some white and yellow flowers on top on the floor.

There are nearly 80 Peyote Plants on the GTA Online map.

Once you devour the plants, you will become an animal until said animal is killed. Then, you will return to your normal form. 

How long the Peyote plants will remain in GTA Online remains to be seen, however, as Rockstar only adds them for a limited amount of time.
