GTA Online players discover insane MTL Cerberus flying glitch

Grand Theft Auto players have discovered a hilarious trick in Los Santos that allows all sorts of vehicles – even trucks – to take to the sky. 

Previous GTA Online glitches have seen cars spring up into the air like a slingshot, but this one is actually much more controlled, transforming whatever vehicle you would like to use into a controlled flying vehicle. All you need is an MTL Cerberus.

Just like other exploits, this one has been met with some caution and suspicion by members of the community. After all, there are tons of different mods out there that can make it seem like bugs are in the game, and the real ones are often difficult to take advantage of.

GTA Online’s Arena War update went live in December 2018, and one of the vehicles it introduced can do quite spectacular things.

However, one Reddit user has moved to debunk claims that a stunt boost glitch doesn’t exist, by posting a clip showing exactly what happens when it’s done correctly.

As seen in the clip, some of the heaviest rides can be launched into the air and land on the map’s tallest buildings, just by following a few quick steps.

This player decided to use an Apocalypse Cerberus, which was part of the Arena War update. When modifying the vehicle, you can add a “shunt boost” ability to the truck, which was added to allow players to quickly shift left and right, side-swiping other cars on the road.

However, instead of using it for that function, Blaze_Razgriz1 and others have found that when you make a jump, hitting the shunt boost while turned to the side can actually launch your vehicle into the air like a jet.

If you’re having a hard time finding one of these trucks, they can also be purchased in-game, but it will cost you.

These behemoths sell for a whopping $3,870,300 in-game, added as part of the Arena War update. It’s a custom truck that can be adapted in many ways and is not the only one that can be used to perform this glitch. It also works for the Sasquatch, Imperator, and a handful of others.

This is a trick that members of the community might have heard about for some time, with YouTuber Evolve Stunting posting about it back in November 2019. However, not all users have perfected it just yet.

“I can’t even do it with the Issi, meanwhile this dude is effortlessly levitating 40 tons” one said, while another added: “I tried this with the Sasquatch, but I couldn’t get it to even remotely work.” Clearly, it’s easier said than done to make the magic happen.

Twitch Prime members who have linked their account to their Rockstar Social Club profile can also enjoy a 75% discount on the MTL Cerberus, for a limited time.

With patience, and a lot of time on your hands, we’re confident you can perfect it. Just follow the instructions and see where the wind takes you – quite literally. Your next GTA Online session might be very different to many you have had in the past.

Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.

It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
