Some “Grand Theft Auto 5 Online” users are saying that modders and cheaters ruining the game, with one person posting up a video of the alleged cheating.
“So, I went into a public lobby tonight with my lowly little level 18, and had a very rude awakening. I did not even make it out of my apartment. The minute I spawned there, there was 2 explosions. 1, my entire garage contents were destroyed instantly, and the second explosion killed me while I was still in my apartment. Once this happened I was teleported many blocks away all to be targeted again twice. Once in passive mode, I went back to the apartment, and here in the video is what I saw…UNBELIEVABLE,” one person wrote on the Rockstar the support thread.
The user posted up a YouTube video of the alleged “GTA 5” modder here.
A number of people responded that the modders, hackers, and those who manipulate the game in a similar manner should receive lifetime bans.
“That is the reason i don’t play public lobbies anymore i only play invite only sessions and invite my friends to it i am not going to risk my lvl 89 character for the little 6 to 12 year olds to screw with and yes i have been told by one of my friends the one of his friends 5 year old cousins play gta online (sic),” said another person.
Several weeks ago, users started complaining of hacked UFOs draining GT$ and their character’s RP.
Earlier this week, Rockstar did an update to its server.
The news comes as the company confirmed it would be releasing “GTA V” for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC.
“Grand Theft Auto V will take full advantage of the power of the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC with across-the-board graphical and technical improvements to deliver a stunning new level of detail. Increased draw distances, finer texture details, denser traffic, and enhanced resolutions all work together to bring new life to the cities, towns, deserts and oceans of Rockstar North’s epic reimagining of Southern California,” said Rockstar in a press release.
