GTA RP has dominated Twitch for months now and some viewers take things a lot more serious than they need to, as evidenced by the death threat Judd received.

For most viewers, GTA RP is something that’s just fun to watch but some take it a step further and make things personal.

Twitch streamer Judd, who roleplays a character named Judge Coyote, presided over a Chang Gang court case, a gang that has a strong fan following, and one fan took things really personal with how things went a sent a death threat to Judd. 

However, it wasn’t a death threat to Judge Coyote but was in actuality a threat to Judd himself.

This was no joke

Judd revealed he received a death threat in a candid discussion with his viewers.

“As far as any future Chang Gang cases … I will not be presiding on any of those,” he said. “Yesterday, I received a death threat over my verdict for the last one so I’m removing myself from the case altogether. It’s a game to me.”

When asked about the death threat from his chat, he confirmed it was a real-life threat.

All the extra eyes on GTA RP have resulted in a mixed bag. Big streamers like Summit1g, Sodapoppin and LIRIK have brought many new fans over to the game, and many of them remained as viewers, despite some of the bigger streamers moving on.

While the majority of viewers have been enjoying the ride, there have been some instances of them being toxic in the community. 

summit1g/twitchGTA RP has taken Twitch by storm.

There was a situation with one RPer being bullied by Twitch streamer Greekgodx’s chat after the two interacted negatively in-game. This led players from Greek’s chat to go over to hers and say all sorts of rude things.

Twitch chat does have wholesome moments at times, but this was certainly not one of those situations.

One Grand Theft Auto fan has gone above and beyond with a new mod that gives GTA V a truly stunning, next-gen look.  

It’s been over seven years since Rockstar Game finally released GTA V and took players to Los Santos for an epic story about three criminals, each having their own troubles in the city. 

Even though the game is almost eight years old, Grand Theft Auto fans continue to explore Los Santos through GTA Online. However, many are getting impatient and want Rockstar to get a move on and finally announce something about GTA 6. 

Though, while those fans growing more and more impatient by the week, there are some who have decided to show how impressive GTA V could look if Rockstar ever decided to launch a remastered version.

Fans have been hoping for GTA 6 news but Rockstar have stayed quiet.

It comes from YouTuber OreoShaman who used their very own realism graphics mod on PC, alongside some ray-tracing, to add an extra layer of color and vibrance to Los Santos.

In the sweeping shots showing in the YouTuber’s video, key locations in the city like the southern port of Los Santos docks, Vinewood Hills, Vespucci, and even Sandy Shores look truly like real-life areas, while keeping still keeping that GTA V feel to them.

The YouTuber has clearly wowed fans too, as of the writing, their video has amassed over one million views as well as over 35,000 likes and plenty of comments stating how gorgeous they’ve made the game look.

While the impressive mod comes from outside of Rockstar, the iconic game devs might have something similar up their sleeve, seeing as GTA V is being ported to Xbox Series X/S and PS5 in the next few months. 

The next-gen consoles might give the devs more scope to improve on GTA Online, but many fans will be hoping that it’s not that long before they show off a new game, rather than expanding on an old one.
