Why GTA Online ‘God Mode’ cheaters should be scared of the Up-n-Atomizer

Coming up against ‘God Mode’ cheaters in Grand Theft Auto 5 can be really frustrating, but there’s one weapon in GTA Online that allows players to swat them away like flies – and that’s the Up-n-Atomizer. 

This gun is like nothing else Ammu-Nation has to offer, with its futuristic look and hefty price tag in-game.


While that might put some people off the idea of purchasing one – as it is priced higher than some incredible cars at Legendary Motorsport and many properties on Dynasty 8 – there is one huge benefit to owning one… Cheaters don’t seem to stand a chance.

A lot of GTA Online players will be wondering if the futuristic Up-n-Atomizer is worth the money.

We had previously seen the Atomizer used for another useful use, flipping cars that had been stuck in confined spaces that they wouldn’t usually be able to get out from, although this one certainly takes the cake – especially if you’re being tested in GTA Online.


God Mode cheaters are rife in the game, with many whizzing around the Rockstar Games title not being able to be killed like other players.

However, the Up-n-Atomizer provides perfect counter-play to their non-dying ways. In fact, it’s even funnier that they don’t die and cannot escape it’s wrath – as seen in a clip from Reddit user shayankurdboy.

As seen above, the weapon can provide an incredibly effective way of handling opponents using God Mode – as long as they’re in range. Its blast completely floors them with just a single hit, launching them up and down, unable to combat the power of the weapon.


It’s a solution, but an expensive one at that, if you’re looking to solve your cheater problem in GTA Online. Available at Ammu-Nation, you can buy this futuristic blaster right over the counter for just under $400,000.

To make matters worse for the cheater in this clip, things were topped off as an NPC character came screaming down the road in their car and struck them clean on. Hopefully that, and others armed with Atomizers, will show cheaters where to go.


Grand Theft Auto movie reportedly coming before GTA 6

Reports from sources who correctly revealed both the Resident Evil 4 remake and The Witcher Netflix series before their official announcements, are now claiming that a Grand Theft Auto movie is in development.

Despite no news of another GTA game (expected to be GTA 6), Rockstar is apparently focusing on another medium entirely for the franchise. According to WGTC, the Grand Theft Auto movie is likely to release before the next installment of the game.


It’s been over seven years since GTA V was released, back in September 2013. Red Dead Redemption 2 was Rockstar’s next major project, released in October 2018, and they have been pouring lots of resources into the ever-popular GTA Online.

But, perhaps their next project really is a movie adaptation of the iconic GTA franchise, as these sources have supposedly been on the money before.

A GTA movie would no doubt be a box-office hit.

The report claims that “the project is reportedly in the early stages and will loosely adapt the events of GTA V, presumably bringing us live-action versions of characters Michael, Franklin and Trevor.”

At this point, it’s only possible to speculate about who would play these characters, but potentially the voice actors from the game would step up into the live-action roles.

It’s possible that GTA Online’s success, which continues to add new players and is something of a cash cow for Rockstar and publishers Take Two, means they are in no rush to release the sixth game.

The movie will apparently still focus on the main characters from GTA V.

The movie industry is currently in a downturn, for obvious reasons arising from lockdowns, but if the movie is still in the “early stages”, it may be some way off still. Not to mention, filming is also made more difficult in these uncertain times.

The same can be said for game development also, and with not even a peep out of Rockstar regarding a new GTA game, that seems to be a long way off still too.
