There are few things worse than grinding through a mission just to fall as you get close to completing it, but as Grand Theft Auto Online, it’s even more frustrating when it’s the game’s fault you fail.

Grand Theft Auto V released way back in 2013, but six years on, it remains one of the most popular games in the world, thanks in no small part to GTA Online, which is constantly updated with new missions, tasks, and heists.

Heists involve players going through a number of setup missions that culminate in a massive and difficult final task that usually involves players robbing banks or breaking prisoners out of jails, with hundreds of thousands of dollars up for grabs for those who successfully pull them off.

For EL1T3ttv, he had already gone through the hassle of completing his setup missions and was ready to take on the big challenge. GTA Online had different plans for the streamer though, who was left stunned when his heist was ruined, through no fault of his own.

After watching a cutscene where his team jumped out of a plane, EL1T3ttv found himself flying a helicopter, with the game telling him to wait for the remaining members of his heist squad at the beach.

Things didn’t go to plan though, with GTA seemingly failing to give him control of the vehicle, leaving the streamer powerless as it crashed into the sand and rolled into the ocean, immediately failing the entire team for the error.

The 20-year-old, who regularly streams his escapades in Los Santos, was understandably stunned by the glitch, staring open-mouthed at the screen as he tried to explain what had just happened to his team via the in-game chat.

“What the fuck was that?” he asked, still shocked. “The load screen hit, it loaded, and then the propellors stopped spinning!”

What caused this to happen will likely never be revealed, but the streamer can rest easy knowing that everyone gets hit by a crazy GTA glitch every now and then, including Jaryd ‘Summit1g’ Lazar who got caught by a number of bizarre invisible car bugs.
