Hilarious GTA Online glitch spawns players with the wrong body

A Grand Theft Auto player has unearthed a glitch that takes character customization to new heights: all the way up to Beverly Hills’ Dr. 90210.

They say that life is like a box of chocolates. And, you know, sometimes GTA Online is like a box of chocolates too. Except there’s a chance that, after you’ve patiently taken time to make your choice, your chocolate surprises you with a pair of breasts. 

That’s exactly what happened to Redditor, Mattrunnit, who successfully loaded his bearded, John Wick-esque character into GTA Online — only to find out that, from the neck down, he had turned into a middle-aged woman with a penchant for low cut necklines.

No matter where you are in Los Santos, this bug could affect you in GTA Online.

Mattrunnit’s character has the mom jeans, top and body of a mother bringing her kids to the mall. Even their hair, a parted, mid-length bob hairdo, could fit a Karen.

But, like a timed challenge on RuPaul’s Drag Race gone wrong, his character seems not to have had enough time to shave their beard or finish doing their makeup. 

And, if their concerned eyes and furrowed brows are any indication, the character is not happy with being photographed in this half-baked state. Maybe that’s why Mattrunnit had to sneakily take this candid picture with a potato — quality that he’s already apologized for on Reddit, and fans will one day forgive him for.

This is not the first glitch that has surfaced in GTA Online, nor is it likely to be the last. In the past, we’ve had flying trucks and the infamous Los Santos vehicular springboard. This bug may not be as vertically volatile as some of the others, but anyone will appreciate its aesthetic creativity. 

If popular sayings can be misappropriated, then glitches get stitches. And, if you’re loading up GTA Online, be aware that surprise plastic surgery is a real possibility and your character’s body may have gotten some work done.

Rockstar are yet to officially announce that they are looking into the problem, but as is the case for all bugs, usually a fix is on the way.

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.
