A GTA Online player has found a pretty perfect way to deal with the ‘god mode’ jet griefers that you may have run into during a free roam session.

Aside from fan-favorite activities like street racing, heisting, and hitting up the casino, there is plenty of things to do on the virtual streets of Los Santos in GTA Online. Though, not everyone is out to have a good time.

There have been plenty of instances of players hacking with some absurd contraptions, as well as griefing lower-level enemies with some high-powered weapons. Though, sitting in a jet and spraying down other players while in ‘god mode’ might just take the cake as the most infuriating problem about GTA Online right now.

GTA Online fans have had to deal with some ridiculous hacks.

Though, Reddit user BigDaddyPapaw might have found a solution for catching these sorts of players off guard and annoy them enough to leave the session.

The Grand Theft Auto posted their idea to the GTA Online subreddit where, after explaining that they’d tried to take the opposing player down with the Avenger and their own Jet, they had another idea up their sleeve.

They hopped out of an aircraft just above where the hovering jet was sat idle, quickly pulled open a parachute, and grabbed an automatic pistol. From there, BigDaddyPapaw had the ‘god mode’ enemy in their sights, pulled the trigger, and avoided death by finally managing to kill off the griefer.

The Redditor noted that the player who was causing all the grief quickly sent them a tonne of “hate mail” but in the end, it was worth it to get them out of the session and being able to play GTA Online normally again.

Rockstar Games have clamped down on hackers and modders in the multiplayer portion of GTA 5 but there is little they can do about griefers unless there is proof of them hacking. So, maybe moving forward, players might start to report others more if they act in a similar fashion.

Rockstar Games have dropped another background update for GTA Online, with this one dealing with the Mobile Operations Centre duplication exploit. 

There are plenty of ways to play Grand Theft Auto Online, and while many players are all about grinding, there are many others who look for a shortcut so that they can get cash quickly.

We’ve seen this previously with glitched jobs, being able to cash ridiculous amounts of casino chips for cash, and finding a workaround for the cooldown on selling cars at the Los Santos Customs mod shops. 

In recent weeks, players have found a way to duplicate cars using the Mobile Operations Centre. This means that they can reproduce unlimited numbers of cars and then sell them on to make cash.

The Mobile Operations Centre has been the key to some big exploits in GTA Online.

However, Rockstar Games have now released a background update that has patched the workaround that players had been using for the duplication glitch.

Rockstar insider TezFun revealed this on October 8, noting that it wasn’t the only thing that the GTA Online developers had added to the multiplayer side of GTA V with this small hotfix. 

TezFun noted that they’d also added a fix to address some issues with Business Battles. Numerous issues had been cropping up in sessions where, as a player was on a mission, if a Business Battle started, they’d be unable to complete the other job.

With this hotfix coming as a part of a background update, you don’t have to worry about a big download before jumping back into Los Santos. It happens on the server side of things, so there’s nothing to download.

As Rockstar continues to build towards GTA Online’s big winter update, the game should receive a handful of other updates in the meantime. Though, it remains to be seen if they’ll be issuing any punishments for players who abused the now-patched duplication glitch.
