Grand Theft Auto Online players have got a pretty perfect, and hilarious, way to deal with God Mode hackers who decide to try and ruin sessions by staying on foot. 

Even though the majority of GTA Online players are all about grinding out jobs and playing in a normal manner, there are plenty who are all about using exploits and hacks to their advantage.

The most popular of these, as you might expect, is the God Mode hack. Players can simply become invincible to enemy attacks, letting them cause havoc on the streets of Los Santos. 

While plenty of these God Mode hackers decide to take things one step furthers by using a vehicle – usually a fighter jet – so that they are even more annoying, there are some brazen enough to stay on the ground and walk around with weapons.

God Mode hackers have been running rampant in GTA Online.

Though, as Reddit user ralphgamboa shows, it is pretty easy to table the turns on a God Mode hacker if they decide to stay on the ground. 

All you need to do is use a vehicle like the Nightshark or Mobile Operations Centre that can take a lot of damage and withstand their attacks. Given that both can take a whole load of rockets before they explode, it can easily frustrate a hacker who isn’t getting their own way.

If you want to take things a little further, just do what ralphgamboa does and run them over. If you manage to trap the hacker under your car, they can’t do anything and the repeated animation of being run over stirs up some motion sickness vibes.

Of course, you aren’t going to kill the hacker by following these tips, but, if you manage to annoy them enough, they’ll probably leave you alone for the rest of the session or find another lobby to terrorize. 

There are, however, passive God Mode players who aren’t able to die but aren’t able to shoot weapons either. They’re harmless and might even brighten your day up with some of their antics.

Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.

It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
