GTA Online players are constantly finding new and exciting ways to travel around the crime-infested streets of Los Santos. However, this technique is a little special because it will enable you to fly through the air in a car. 

Rockstar’s game is home to all kinds of vehicles and it’s not uncommon to see players using them in weird and wacky ways. From military-grade tanks to fighter jets and futuristic motorbikes, there’s a ride for every kind of playstyle. While it can be fun to whizz around the city streets in the game’s most luxurious planes, it can be even more rewarding when you take to the skies in something that was never intended to leave the ground.

Shunt hopping is a technique that has been floating around the GTA Online community for a while, but a recent player used this advanced technique to complete USS Luxington mission in record time.

To help you master shunt Hopping in GTA Online, we’ve put together a handy guide that will get you flying through the air in no time. 

What you need

In order to pull off this aerial maneuver and begin flying through the skies, you’ll first need to equip the Shunt Boost from the Arena Workshop. This workshop allows players to modify and upgrade standard vehicles into Arena vehicles, giving them access to various modifications that aren’t featured in the game’s standard workshops. 

The main modification you’ll need to equip is the Shunt Boost mod. This lethal mod will propel your vehicle to either the left or right, depending on which way you choose to boost. The next thing you’ll want to install is that of the game’s upgraded hydraulic boost jump. This particular hydraulic allows you to constantly repeat your jumps, allowing you to cover vast distances. 

We recommend kitting out a small/lightweight car with these mods if you wish to make the process of shunt hopping easier. Not only will you be able to get bigger air time, the vehicle will also be more manageable to control. 

How to shunt hop in GTA Online

Here’s a simple breakdown of how you can begin GTA shunt hopping online.

  1. Jump into GTA 5, and head into GTA Online.
  2. Activate your vertical boost to send your car into the air.
  3. Tilt your car onto its side via the left analog stick.
  4. Use the shunt boost to send your car flying to the right.

The car will stay in the air and continue to fly forwards as long as you keep it on its side. If the car begins to reposition itself you will instantly begin falling towards the ground, so make sure you maintain this sideways position. Simply activate the upgraded hydraulic boost over and over again to keep your car in the air. 

It might not be as simple as flying in one of GTA Online’s planes, but this technique is certainly a fun one to master.

The era of ‘red dots’ littered across Apex Legends’ menu tabs will finally come to an end after Respawn confirmed they’re implementing a ‘mark all as seen’ button to the game.

Apex’s bustling community is rejoicing after the developers indicated the long-awaited quality of life update that is scheduled for the next patch, if everything goes to plan.

While fans of the game have known for a while that the feature was pending, there hasn’t been much news of it since seeing it on Respawn’s Trello board a while ago. Since the conversation’s gone dark, it’s been a waiting game to see if the developers would follow-up on the organizational feature.

Well, an inquiring fan created a mock-up of what the ‘mark all as seen’ button could look like within the character-select screen. But fiction turned into reality once Respawn Senior Game Designer, Daniel Z. Klein, chimed into the discussion.

The red dots on tabs have cursed the Apex Legends menu screen for a while.

“Could we get a ‘Mark all as seen’ button? Would be useful instead of going through all the menus to clear the icons,” user ‘TigerTankSniper’ suggested, before Klein was happy to oblige.

“Good news! That’s probably coming in the next patch! John Hodgson put that one in not too long ago,” Klein was happy to report. Hodgson is another Senior Game Designer at Respawn, who’s about to make a lot of the Apex fans really happy.

Since the launch of Apex Legends back in February 2019, there’s been a ton of content regularly injected into the battle royale. This stretches from Legends, weapon cosmetics, sky trails, holo sprays, voice lines, banners, and a lot more.

As much as the fans have loved adding troves of content to their personal libraries, every time something new gets added a small red dot appears to notify players of the change.

“I have an army of them because all the useless blue and white items I get, not really motivated enough to click on all them so now it just keeps growing bigger and bigger,” one person wrote.

The thing is, those little indicators can be persistent and a bit of a bother; hence, the quality of life update that’s coming into the game very soon.

But the community can let out a collective sigh of relief seeing as they shouldn’t be a problem in Apex Legends after the next update.
