Getting on your feet in GTA Online requires you to play in public lobbies. However, there are ways to get around the trolls that want to ruin your VIP Work, businesses, and other jobs by jumping into a public session by yourself. 

While there are plenty of ways to build a criminal empire inside GTA Online, the majority of them require you to be in a public session – especially when it comes to features like the Motorcycle Club businesses or Gunrunning from a bunker. 

This can be quite annoying, seeing as players are always ready to ruin your day by blowing up shipments as you’re on the verge of completing a job. However, there are ways to get into a public session and turn it into a private session with you being the only player able to join.

How to get a solo GTA Online public session on Xbox and PlayStation

You could lucky and find a public session with nobody else in – that is the dream for many GTA Online players – but if the luck isn’t on your side, you can mess with a few connection settings to get what you want. 

On both Xbox and Playstation, you have to change the MTU number that is inside your network settings away from the default 1500 – though each console requires a different number to change to. Follow the below step-by-step guide and you’ll be on your way to a not so public session and simply revert when you want to play normally. 

  1. Open up GTA Online and join a public session
  2. Log into your internet route settings on a PC/laptop
  3. Find the MTU setting in custom/advanced settings 
  4. Change this number to below what is already set as – 800 works well
  5. Save and wait a few seconds until you lag out of GTA Online
  6. Search for a new public session and you should be alone. 

PC players can also get into their own public session by restarting their internet router while finding a new lobby. Once you get back online, the game should place you in a public game by yourself.

Doing this is not against the rules, and you won’t get banned by Rockstar, but you might have to retrace your steps a few times once the servers start pushing players your way after a while. Though, you will have a good length of time to get your work done.


Terrible GTA Online bug makes it impossible to use bunkers

GTA Online players are still having their bunker business missions ruined thanks to a bug that won’t let them enter their not-so-secret base. 

For the longest time, the best way to make money in Grand Theft Auto Online came through jobs and heists. Players would have to grind them out, over and over again, to be able to stack up cash.

Eventually, Rockstar Games brought businesses into the fold – allowing players to make money passively, before having to complete one delivery job at the end for an absolutely huge sum of money. 

The most lucrative of these jobs center around bunkers and the Gunrunning business, where, as the name suggests, you become an arms dealer. However, some players are struggling to run their businesses properly.

The problem isn’t an overly complicated one, instead, it’s just simple. Players can’t access the bunkers. No matter if they’re on foot or in a car, the yellow circle that you usually use to enter just won’t do anything. 

What that means is, players like Reddit user TheAlphamale82, are left to drive around in circles hoping that something might change. But, sadly, it doesn’t and you end up locked outside the bunker unless you want to restart the game.

However, not even a restart is a magic cure, as the problem can still persist in other lobbies. It really is a peculiar problem – and it is one that is affecting different players.

Others like Aberfergie and r3d-v3n0m noted that they have run into the issue as well, and that they’ve flagged a ticket with Rockstar Support. However, while the devs have supposedly said they’ll work on it, they haven’t found a fix. 

The winter update, which will bring the Cayo Perico heist to GTA Online is right around the corner, and that update should address some issues. Hopefully, the bunker problem is one of them.
