A GTA Online player has discovered a bizarre glitch that allows submarines to fly into the air and take out aircrafts – yes, really.

Despite launching in 2013, GTA Online continues to be a popular choice for gamers looking to get their destructive thrills alongside other players, and the recent Cayo Perico Heist update has certainly helped keep things fresh.

One of the best new features of the update was the addition of the Kosatka submarine, which not only allows players to visit the island of Cayo Perico, but also gives them yet another way to traverse the expansive world of GTA Online.

But the new sub-aquatic vehicle doesn’t come without its faults, as one player has discovered a hilarious glitch that leaves the submarine flying into the air – and destroying jets as a result.

In a video shared to the GTA Online subreddit, a Reddit user can be seen flying their Hydra over the water and shooting missiles at a Kosatka submarine, which they explained was controlled by a friend.

But they were in for a shock when the submarine rose out of the water, causing their Hydra to crash into the huge vehicle and explode on impact, resulting in an instant KO.

“Turns out submarines can jump in the air to take out aircrafts,” they wrote.

The post has received over 14k upvotes and plenty of comments from GTA Online players, who were either curious about how it happened or simply laughing at the bizarre moment.

“This is actually a common maneuver in war it’s called the ‘F**k you and f**k your logic’ maneuver,” wrote one GTA Online player, while others joked that the video was proof of why you “don’t mess with Pavel”.

It seems that the cause of this specific glitch is a simple one: When explosives from either the B-11 Strikeforce, Hydra, or P-996 Lazer aircrafts are shot at the submerged part of the Kosatka submarine, it will rise into the air.

While the Reddit user explained that it was a friend they were shooting at, it’s heartwarming to think that this glitch could end up destroying annoying griefers who go after submarines in the game.

Bronze Overwatch streamer explains how he climbed to Grandmaster

Overwatch Twitch streamer Asa has been playing the game since all the way back in Season 4 where he began his journey down in Bronze. Despite placing so far down the rank totem pole, he managed to eventually reach GM, but how?

Ranking up in Overwatch can be a serious grind. After playing five placement games on a desired role, the game will put you in a skill rating tier ranging all the way Bronze to Master with players then having to win to reach Grandmaster.

This grind can take a long time, however. Wins earn players around 20 SR, so the journey from say a 2,500 Platinum Rank to 3,500 Master can take many matches.

For Asa, he first began with only 800 SR, but over time, he managed to climb through multiple ranks to reach the highest peak he’s at today with 4,018.

Speaking to Dexerto, the 16-year-old explained how he managed to pull it off and the challenges he faced along the way.

One major problem he had to overcome was hardware limitations. “The hardware I used was awful. Dealing with an awful setup was the main thing that held me back,” he explained.

“Hardware improvement was a very gradual process, and although it helps, it doesn’t define a player,” he added. “You can play on 60fps with a $10 mouse and be better than someone with a decked out setup.”

Going from Bronze to GM is an impressive feat.

According to Asa, his biggest improvement method came from playing in an organized setting and joining a team. “I found coaching there and over the years it has shaped me as a player the most out of anything. I highly recommend looking into organized teamplay if you’re trying to improve because it truly is an incredible source for learning.”

Despite going from Bronze to Gold in just two seasons, he did face some difficulties in Platinum and Diamond before eventually breaking through to reach Masters and Grandmaster four seasons later.

That all said, the Canadian believes the best way for anyone stuck in low ELOs to “realize that you’re no better than your teammates and you deserve the rank you have.”

Ranking up can be a serious grind.

“A lot of players in all ranks struggle with ego, and I used to as well. The only true way to climb is to understand what level you’re at and working hard at trying to improve. It’s a pretty simple formula: you get better than the people at your rank, you win more games. Simple as that,” the streamer stated.

For anyone currently stuck in ELO hell, following in Asa’s footsteps could be as simple as setting your ego aside and focusing on yourself. After all, if he can do it, what’s stopping you?
