There’s nothing quite like racking up the wanted level in GTA Online and taking on the game’s entire law enforcement. Well, a player may have found the perfect location to hold and camp whilst fighting off the cops.

It has been seven years since the release of GTA Online back in October of 2013. Although now classed as a relatively old title, GTA Online maintains a large and dedicated player base.

The title has received numerous updates adding fresh and exciting content to the game. From heists to a wealth of items and vehicles to collect, a player isn’t short of content to get stuck into.

However, as with any GTA title, sometimes a player just wants to rack up the wanted level and see how long they can survive.

Perfect location to fight off the cops

A post made to the GTA Online subreddit has highlighted the best location to camp whilst maintaining a high wanted level.

The redditor reveals that the rooftop of Eclipse Lodge, located in West Vinewood, is the perfect location to fight off cops. The only access to the rooftop of the building is a ladder which the cops are unable to climb.

This means that players can simply camp the top of the building and shoot down with no consequences: “If you’re looking to blow off some steam… the rooftop of the Eclipse Lodge is the place to be… for some reason, the cops can’t properly climb up the ladder.”

Here’s the place GTA 5 players think is easiest to fend off the police.

Unfortunately, players will not be able to hold this spot for an infinite amount of time.

As the Reddit user helpfully mentions, the only officers that will be able to reach players are the S.W.A.T team that repel from helicopters. It is possible to hold off the helicopters, but you would need to get a group of friends together and keep track of the skies.

It’s always interesting to see posts like this highlighting interesting locations in Los Santos. Although GTA Online has reached its 7th birthday, players are still finding new and unique elements to the title.

Rainbow Six: Siege is hitting the next-gen PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles on December 1. If you’re looking to make the jump, here’s exactly what you need to do to upgrade. The best part is, it’s totally free.

Every title is trying to make the jump to the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X and S consoles. The next generation is here ⁠— just in time for Christmas ⁠— and while grabbing some new games is always high on the list, old favorites shouldn’t be left behind.

If you’ve picked up a copy of Rainbow Six: Siege for the PS4 or Xbox One, you’ll be able to make the jump to the next-gen consoles on December 1. Here’s how you can upgrade.

If you own a copy of Rainbow Six on PS4 or Xbox One, you can upgrade to the PS5 and Xbox Series X consoles for free ⁠— providing that you upgrade to a console in the same family.

That means the upgrade won’t work if you go from the Xbox One to PS5, or the PS4 to the Xbox Series X. Also, if you own a physical version of Rainbow Six, you won’t be able to transfer to discless consoles.

From there, it’s as simple as linking your console to Ubisoft Connect, downloading the game again, and jumping right into the action. Here’s a full step by step list of what you need to do.

  1. Link your Ubisoft Connect account to your Xbox or PlayStation account here.
  2. Log onto your console and download Rainbow Six Siege (or insert your physical disc).
  3. Launch the game.

The launch of Rainbow Six on next-gen consoles on December 1 will likely align with the release of Operation Neon Dawn.

Rainbow Six cross-play and cross-progression confirmed

Once you upgrade your console, you won’t have to start from scratch. Ubisoft have confirmed that Rainbow Six will not only have cross-progression, but also cross-play between console generations.

You’ll keep all your progress, including Operators, in-game items, stats, and more, and you’ll also be able to play with friends if they don’t make the jump to next-gen just yet.

However, cross-play and cross-progression won’t be coming to PC in the near future. While Ubisoft aims on implementing it for the PS5 and Xbox Series X down the line, they will not be available on launch.
