Hilarious GTA Online trick puts new spin on classic car prank

A GTA Online player pulled off a dastardly prank on their fellow players by putting a new spin on one of the old trickiest in the book.

Even though the goal of GTA Online is to pretty much build up your criminal empire and have a nice car collection, there are quite a number of ways to play.

You can be an ultra-serious grinder who logs on and does jobs for eight hours a day, or you can have a little more fun with it. Players who have a little more fun with things can go a bit too far and become an out and out troll with their MK II Oppressor, but most players keep it simple for the most part.

That included YouTuber SpeirsTheAmazingHD, who put a new spin on the classic Ignition Bomb prank by getting a Cargoob involved.

The Cargobob is central to a number of GTA Online pranks.

Since the start of GTA Online, the Ignition Bomb has been used to get one over on players who want to steal your car. Though, in the case of the YouTuber, he didn’t leave his car on the side of the road.

Instead, he carried his expensive and unique looking ride around Los Santos using a Cargobob helicopter, and asked unsuspecting players if they’d do him a favor by following him while driving the car.

Anyone who accepted had the car dropped nearby, but once they got inside and turned the engine over, they found themselves headed for a respawn because they’d fallen victim to the classic prank. 

As SpeirsTheAmazingHD showed, plenty of players fell for the prank because they wanted to hop inside his nice car and take it for a spin. 

Most of them took it on the chin too, realizing they’d been played by the classic trick. At least now, when someone asks if you’ll drive their car and follow their Cargobob, you might be a little wiser to what’s going on.

Amumu has risen up as the dominant jungler after the League of Legends Season 11 item rework. He was targeted in League patch 10.24, but the changes didn’t go far enough, with Riot shipping out a big hotfix on November 26.

Amumu was the big winner of the League of Legends Season 11 changes. While his winrate shot up on the Patch 10.22 thanks to a change to his ultimate, the new items on Patch 10.23 only cemented his place at the top of the jungler power rankings.

In the space of a month, he jumped from 48.88% win rate to 57.08%, according to stats site op.gg. His pick rate also went up tenfold, from 1.12% to 17.98%.

Amumu has run away as the top jungler in League Season 11, but Riot are reining him in.

Given his outdated kit, it’s a small miracle the Sad Mummy has found his way back into the meta after years of being obsolete. Between Sunfire Aegis, Demonic Embrace, and Abyssal Mask though, it’s given Amumu a new lease on life.

However, Riot believes they’ve given him a bit too much of a leash to work with. After a small set of nerfs to begin with on League patch 10.24, they’ve gone one step further with an even bigger set of changes in a November 26 hotfix.

The hotfix includes a nerf to Amumu’s mana per level, the base damage on his E, as well as his ultimate stun duration. The three changes in tandem are designed to make Amumu less of a kill threat, having to conserve his resources for when the time is right.

“Amumu is still looking like a big outlier after the patch, overperforming other tanks and everyone else,” lead gameplay designer Mark Yetter said on Twitter.

Riot are hoping the changes bring Amumu in line with other tanks, who were nerfed hard via Sunfire Aegis, Frostfire Gauntlet, and Turbo Chemtank.

They’ll be keeping their eyes on the Sad Mummy until the next update, League patch 10.25, which is expected to drop on December 9.

The final update of the Season 10 cycle is currently set to include a bunch of new cosmetics, overhauls to Pantheon and Anivia, and more.
