GTA Online players have come up with a hilarious new way to attach a tank to a Cargobob helicopter without plunging to their death. Here’s how you can get involved with their hijinx. 

With Los Santos being so wide and open, GTA Online players have plenty of tools at their disposal to come up with creative ideas for ridiculous vehicles, custom game modes, and much more. 

Over the year, many of these hilarious ideas have centered around the Cargobob helicopter and its hook that allows you to pick up cars. You can easily pick someone up and drop them in the ocean or drop their car on top of another to make some crazy conjoined vehicles.

The Cargobob is key to GTA Online’s insane vehicles.

However, its a new idea from Reddit user RiceWafflezzz that has taken the cake as players can use a Cargobob to create a flying tank that keeps the military machine in the air for longer than normal. 

The Redditor noted that if you team up with someone who is willing to go into passive mode and fly the Cargobob around for you, the game will take their passive mode and keep the tank attached as if there is a huge magnet in place of the hook. This will allow the tank to fly until it is destroyed by an enemy player.

  1. Find a Rhino or Khanjali tank
  2. Grab yourself a Cargobob
  3. Have someone fly the Cargobob for you and hook the tank on
  4. Have the Cargobob pilot enable Passive mode with the tank attached
  5. You now have a flying tank that can’t crash unless destroyed by someone else.

Now, of course, there are plenty of other vehicles that you can use to cause mayhem from the skies that are easier to control than the tank. It might be a bit of a nightmare to aim your sights properly while attached to the Cargobob.

However, if you’re someone who doesn’t take GTA Online all that seriously and just want to have fun with your friends, it is something you should try out – at least one anyway. You can end up picking up a few kills and giving yourself a memorable in-game experience.


GTA Online player discovers Up-n-Atomizer trick you would never think of

The Up-n-Atomizer might not look like its from the same planet as other Grand Theft Auto weapons, but one GTA Online player has discovered a handy trick with it that the everyday person would find helpful. 

The world of GTA 5 is full with violence, fast cars and loud sounds. Even if you get a few members of the community who stick to the roads and stop at traffic lights for a laugh, generally they are in the minority and the rest is utter chaos.

A gun like the Up-n-Atomizer is capable of great things, terrible, but great. Its powerful blast can send cars, buses, tanks, and even planes flying in the opposite direction.

However, one player has shown a more delicate side to the gun. Apparently, this is actually the perfect tool to move cars between parking spaces.

Moving cars isn’t difficult in GTA, but the Up-n-Atomizer definitely makes it more graceful. Well, if you use it right.

GTA Online trick for the Up-n-Atomizer

As seen in a clip posted to the GTA Online subreddit, user skelatorx7 proved that it’s not all about destruction with the weapon.

In fact, with just one small push, they were able to move their car perfectly from one place to another without doing a single scratch to it. Now, here it’s just one off the street and not many will care about that, but it would definitely be handy if it were your own insured vehicle.

As seen in the video, the player simply aimed in and fired low into the side of the car. Soon after, it flips perfectly into the next parking spot as if it was a natural way for it to happen.

Not everybody in the comments quite understood how it worked, though. One said: “How did the shot go through the car?” while another posted: “Car flip? How?”

Other users have found more crazy ways of using the Atomizer, of course, including the use of it to shift buses in the middle of the road. After all, they can be annoying, cruising around slowly in front of your speedy vehicles.

You never know, maybe in the future your mechanic will be blasting your cars over to you like this, rather than riding them to your path. Never going to happen, but definitely a funny picture to paint.
