Grand Theft Auto has a wide variety of different vehicles for its community to try out and a team of players has come together to create something quite special in GTA Online, pulling off an unbelievable air show that even the Red Arrows would be proud of. 

The Red Arrows are more formally known as the Royal Air Force Aerobatic Team in the United Kingdom, pulling off some incredible and beautiful air stunts with speed, agility and precision. Now, that same energy has somehow crossed over to GTA.

Rockstar Games are always adding new ways to play in Los Santos and the wider areas on the GTA 5 map, whether it be new cars, bikes, or even helicopters added in frequent content updates. However, the real creativity often comes from those who jump into the game and put such features to good use, and it’s fair to say a team of in-game pilots has done just that.

GTA Online players have been creating some insane air shows in-game.

It’s always a challenge to do something fresh in a game like Grand Theft Auto. There might be so many different options at your disposal, but many players just jump into the game, ride around in their cars and buy houses. Yet, if there was a gap in creativity it has certainly been filled.

Posting their showcase of plane skills to the GTA subreddit on March 18, user Bmancowtan posted: “Ever seen a GTA Airshow?” followed by an incredible piece of footage, showing seven different jets moving in unison with striking colored-smoke coming from their tail ends. The jets are V-65 Molotoks and are available to buy in-game for almost $5 million, so it’s definitely an expensive hobby.

Flashes of blue, red and yellow could be seen in the sky as the septet breezed over the water, with the sun setting just behind. This can be seen in the post below.

The group of players call themselves ‘The Red Sparrows’ and often post this sort of stuff to their YouTube channel, with recent videos including air show competitions with in-game cash up for grabs in the rewards, as well as other GTA related content.

The breathtaking video shared with the subreddit, however, was given a huge nod by other members of the community, too, which also joined in with comments in the Reddit thread. A user posted: “Finally a fresh take on this game! Love it.” While another said: “I have not said holy sh*t about this game in a long time – whoah.”

Will you try to make your own air show next time the sun sets in GTA Online? It’s certainly a challenge.

Another comment that’s well worth a mention came from Temporary_Cold, who joked: “The ocean, the sunset, The inspiring teamwork, the poetic double helix signifying life’s profundity. It’s almost enough to bring a tear of j.. Whooooshh as 3 oppressor griefers whiz into frame.

With the Reddit post surging in popularity and their YouTube channel drawing thousands of views, there’s no doubt we’ll see more from this team of players in the future.


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.
