GTA Online players wiped for using new money exploit to get millions

GTA Online players are already being punished for using the new apartment money exploit to rack up millions of dollars – with some claiming to have seen the money they gained being wiped. 

Even though the majority of GTA Online players either earn their money legitimately or purchase Shark Card microtransactions, there are plenty of others who use cheats and exploits to stack up cash in their Maze Bank account.

These exploits can be something as simple as glitching the end of a mission so the money duplicates or as complicated as following 20+ specific steps.

Following the recent Los Santos Summer Special update, players had uncovered a new glitch that allowed them to make millions in minutes through their apartments and garages. Though, it appears as if some are already facing repercussions.

Reddit user -SgtSpaghetti- reported that, even though the glitch is still active, wipes had begun as of August 17 as they had lost some serious cash.

The Redditor noted that they’d made around 175 million thanks to the glitch, but the money they had left after pumping some of it into purchasing vehicles, buildings, and clothing, had been wiped without the usual message from Rockstar.

While some others were wary of the Redditor’s claims, given that they hadn’t received the usual loading screen message from Rockstar telling them about the wipe, a handful of others claimed they’d also lost cash.

On top of those claims, Grand Theft Auto Online YouTuber JK Gam3rs also had their video struck down by Take 2 Interactive. 

“If you have done this glitch, you probably need to be careful from this point on,” the YouTuber said. “They’re striking videos and taking them down so it means something to them, they’re not very happy.”

In the past, for similar exploits, Rockstar has dished out waves of bans and account wipes, with some players being reset all the way back to level one.

It remains to be seen if they’ll be doing the same for this glitch, but, it’ll probably be patched sooner rather than later either way.

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.
