GTA Online players have been ‘breaking’ into Franklin’s house by using a neat trick with the Up-N-Atomizer pistol. 

While GTA Online inhabits the same Los Santos background as the GTA V story mode, there isn’t much crossover between the two. Yes, you have Lester and Trevor’s buddy Ron helping you set up certain heists, but you aren’t going to see Franklin or Michael pounding the streets while out on a walk. 

Though, the pair’s different lives do ‘exist’ in GTA Online anyway, as you can drive up to their houses and sort of have a look around. Yet, some players have taken it one step further and gotten inside the walls of Franklin’s house.

Franklin was one of GTA V’s key characters.

The neat trick was posted to the GTAOnline subreddit by Reddit user Preflipped, who noted that if you have an Up-N-Atomizer pistol in your inventory, you can break into Franklin’s house.

All you need to do is hop up on the wall to the left side of his house, follow it around until you’re on top of the garage, and then jump across to the main roof. Once there, if you shoot the Up-N-Atomizer towards the floor near the solar panels, your character should ragdoll and find their way inside.

Once in there, you can have a walk around and see everything that the house has inside – just like in GTA V’s story mode. Though, you won’t bump into Franklin in the living room or have to fight off Chop outside. 

While it is a pretty cool trick, sadly, there isn’t that much to do once inside. You can walk around but that’s about it – you aren’t going to be able to steal anything or even move in the house and make it your new home. Though, if you have got an Up-N-Atomizer pistol spare, it is something you’ll have to do at least once.

GTA 6 teaser speculation grows after players uncover more strange files in RDR2

Fans have spotted more out-of-place files in Red Dead Redemption 2 that could point toward either GTA 6 or rumors that the re-release of Grand Theft Auto V on PS5 and Xbox Series is on a new engine.

Rockstar has been mum on any information regarding the long-awaited announcement of GTA 6, but fans can hardly contain their excitement, combing through files of other games to find some clue for what the company is working on.

Now, with GTA Online players spotting code potentially referencing the RAGE Engine used in Red Dead Redemption 2, fans think there could be some connection between RDR2 and the next Grand Theft Auto.

As such, players have peeked through RDR2’s files and discovered some things that seem wildly out of place, even for the wild west.

What are these weird GTA-like files doing in Red Dead Redemption 2?

GTA Forums member ‘rollschuh2282’ noted that they found parachute-related files hidden in Red Dead. The crazy part is that the file doesn’t exist in GTA V.

“Funnily that [[email protected]@pack] animation file does not exist in V,” they wrote and provided a photo of all the parachute animations in GTA 5.

Lo and behold, the file with “pack” in its name was not among them, meaning it was unique to Red Dead 2’s code. But what would parachute files be doing in a game about cowboys?

Modern gun files don’t make sense in RDR2. Unless…

Fans believe this is either a sign towards the next-gen port of GTA V being in Red Dead Redemption 2’s engine or GTA 6.

Unfortunately, it’s unclear if the files had existed since the game’s PC release or were only recently added in a newer update.

This isn’t the first time fans have discovered weird files in RDR2. As Dexerto previously reported, weapon code for two variants of the Browning pistol, an L1A1 rifle and AK-47 were found back in late December.

In any case, more and more evidence is mounting that something is brewing at Rockstar and it isn’t just hot coffee. Only time will tell what the future holds, especially as GTA V’s re-release draws nearer.
