Aliens have been causing chaos in GTA Online, but thanks to a strange problem, one player has also had their single-player mode infected by them.

GTA Online has gone through many fads during its time, with players doing everything from holding car shows, to only fighting with baseball bats, and with the most recent coming in the form of aliens.

The extraterrestrial beings had come because players had been donning green and purple alien suits – though GTA Online fans were left pretty upset by what should have been an epic final battle. Yet, for one player, the fight against the aliens doesn’t appear to be over as they’ve followed them into single-player.

GTA Online players went crazy with the alien war craze.

The strange phenomenon was pointed out by Reddit user Furfty who noted that after leaving a session of GTA Online, aliens had come with them into the single-player story mode.

Now, this isn’t some crazy glitch where the whole of Los Santos was dressed up in green or purple suits. Instead, the sky behind Furfty, who had been playing as Franklin at the time, was chock full of the UFOs that are supposed to fly above Mount Chiliad at certain times during the day. 

The Redditor even noted that Los Santos had been going a bit crazy as well with cars randomly blowing up while screeching around the road.

What is happening to my game? This is story mode from GTAV

While the problem was pretty strange, and hilarious to some, one player pointed out that this had happened due to a hacker being in their most recent GTA Online session.

“Someone turned my friend into Mount Chiliad,” explained Redditor antoniorondao. “He switched sessions, still Mount Chiliad. Went into story mode, still Mount Chiliad. Restarted the game, it was finally gone”

With the problem stemming from a hack, it might be difficult for Rockstar to root it and get a fix in place.

Though, players will no doubt be hoping that a fix is sorted out because single player is meant to be an escape from those pesky hackers.


GTA Online player makes strange car discovery at Diamond Casino

Grand Theft Auto Online players have made a startling discovery at the back of the Diamond Casino which is, somewhat, unexplainable. 

Given that it’s a living, virtual city, Los Santos can throw up plenty of surprises – both intended and unintended – with the NPCs, their vehicles, and the different buildings dotted around the place. 

Some of Los Santos’ residents will just run out into the road, attack you for looking at them for longer than a few seconds, or start running wildly if you happen to see them conducting a shady deal down a dark alleyway. 

However, in the case of the Diamond Casino’s racing track, some players have discovered something completely different, as the game has allowed some select residents to start driving around in circles.

Almost 7 years after it was first released, players are still finding new ways to do things in GTA Online.

Typically, when it comes to the Casino’s dirt racing track, it’s empty and looking like it needs a few horses to be racing around it.

Yet, as Reddit user FS1120 pointed out, some of the NPCs might just start driving around it as they wish. Why? Well, the Redditor didn’t really have an explanation. Just that, as they were doing a Sightseer mission, they noticed it – and it was such a shock, given they’ve never seen it before. 

Other players were also taken back by the discovery, given how completely random it is. However, one fan might have cracked the code.

Anyone know what this is about – I’ve never seen this at the race track before from gtaonline

Reddit user Appletree_Music asked: “Wonder if the mission enabled that area for traffic because it’s going two ways at traffic speeds? Definitely a first.”

Other players noted that it isn’t just limited to the Casino, either. Redditor adwyv pointed out that they’d also seen traffic driving around the Pier in a similar fashion. 

Either way, the next time you drop into Los Santos, keep an eye out for random traffic. It could lead to a hilarious moment of discovery.
