Rockstar Games have rolled out a background patch in Grand Theft Auto Online, getting rid of the God Mode hacks and money exploits that had been plaguing the game. 

While there are plenty of ways to earn money in GTA Online, some players have resorted to underhanded tactics in the past. These usually come in the form of glitches and exploits that are built into the game or through using outside hacks.

In the past, Rockstar has clamped down on these. The most notable was the Diamond Casino chip duplication glitch that allowed players to rack up billions in GTA Online Cash.

Now though, the famed developers have taken down another set of hacks and exploits that had been running rampant.

God Mode hackers have been running rampant in GTA Online.

Rockstar insider TezFun tweeted that the Grand Theft Auto developers had rolled out a background patch for GTA Online on June 26.

“Background update: Patched a god mode glitch. Patched money glitches that utilize switching characters. 2 vehicles added to the casino podium list, adding up to a total of 6 vehicles,” the reliable insider posted.

Similar to the weekly updates that come out each Thursday, players didn’t have to download anything – it just happened by the time they logged in. 

Plenty of players reported that as soon as they logged in, they were thrust onto their main character as their second character was given with an error. Switching between the two had been the source of the money glitch. 

As for God Mode, well, hackers are now actually able to die regardless of whether they’re flying around on an MKII Oppressor, in a military jet, or just a normal motorbike. 

However, unlike previous glitches and exploits, it is not known if anyone has been banned because of this recent update.

With the Casino chip duplication glitch, Rockstar made it clear that they were sending out a ban wave and punishing players. So, we’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

GTA Online October 29 update: Patch notes

The Franken Strange will leave people for dead.
This week’s casino car is the ghoulish Franken Strange. Classed as a ‘Sports Classics’ car, this demon on wheels would normally cost you $550, 000.

According to the GTA Wiki website: “The unlikely product of Albany’s design team leafing through a vintage car magazine while in the depths of a masculine overdose. The Franken Stange will make you the envy of goths, emo hipsters and vampire wannabes everywhere. Don’t be fooled by what’s left of its old world charm; the steering linkage may be from 1910, but the engine has just enough horsepower to tear itself (and you) to pieces at the first bump in the road.”

So what are you waiting for? Go and spin to win!
