Rockstar finally address major GTA Online car duplication exploit

Rockstar Games have dropped another background update for GTA Online, with this one dealing with the Mobile Operations Centre duplication exploit. 

There are plenty of ways to play Grand Theft Auto Online, and while many players are all about grinding, there are many others who look for a shortcut so that they can get cash quickly. 

We’ve seen this previously with glitched jobs, being able to cash ridiculous amounts of casino chips for cash, and finding a workaround for the cooldown on selling cars at the Los Santos Customs mod shops. 

In recent weeks, players have found a way to duplicate cars using the Mobile Operations Centre. This means that they can reproduce unlimited numbers of cars and then sell them on to make cash.

The Mobile Operations Centre has been the key to some big exploits in GTA Online.

However, Rockstar Games have now released a background update that has patched the workaround that players had been using for the duplication glitch.

Rockstar insider TezFun revealed this on October 8, noting that it wasn’t the only thing that the GTA Online developers had added to the multiplayer side of GTA V with this small hotfix. 

TezFun noted that they’d also added a fix to address some issues with Business Battles. Numerous issues had been cropping up in sessions where, as a player was on a mission, if a Business Battle started, they’d be unable to complete the other job. 

With this hotfix coming as a part of a background update, you don’t have to worry about a big download before jumping back into Los Santos. It happens on the server side of things, so there’s nothing to download.

As Rockstar continues to build towards GTA Online’s big winter update, the game should receive a handful of other updates in the meantime. Though, it remains to be seen if they’ll be issuing any punishments for players who abused the now-patched duplication glitch.

If you’re looking to get around the Watch Dogs Legion map as John Wick, the Hitman operative is certainly going to be one you should unlock pronto. Here, we’ll show you how to do it in Ubisoft’s new hacking title. 

The game launched on October 29 and right off the bat players couldn’t believe how accurately the city of London looked. Whether it was the big red double-decker buses riding around, Buckingham Palace, or Stormzy ‘wanted’ posters – the community seem taken back by what they’re seeing so far.

Well, that’s not all they have to scream and shout about. One of the game’s operatives is called Hitman and has many of the character traits to that of John Wick, a character added to Fortnite in the past with an identical likeness.

While we don’t quite have that in Watch Dogs 3, we do have something just as exciting. Let’s take a look at how to unlock Hitman.

The Hitman character comes with an insane pistol and assault rifle combination (Desert Eagle and G36), on the weapons front, but also a lot of vintage John Wick-style takedowns that people will enjoy.

It also auto reloads during combat rolls and has extra faction damage, which sets this operative right at the very top of the game in terms of standings. To get him, follow these simple steps:

  1. Load into Watch Dogs Legion. 
  2. Head over to Night Elms on the map.
  3. Take on the Neutralize VIP mission.
  4. Use your cargo drone to destroy an enemy drone, photograph evidence.
  5. Take control of your spider gadget and hack a computer to get a key card.
  6. Take down the Albion Contractor at the end of the mission, and take over Night Elms.

Here’s Night Elms, which you have to take over to get Hitman.

Once this mission is complete you will see the celebratory screen above, and will have unlocked the professional Hitman operative – ready to be played with.

So, there we have it! That’s how you can get the Watch Dogs Legion John Wick-esque character. For more guides and Watch Dogs 3 news, stick with us at Dexerto, as this guide should have made things a whole lot easier for you.
