GTA Online hackers and cheaters are responsible the loss of likely millions of in-game dollars, according to a noted Grand Theft Auto leaker. Amid the modding, there’s been clamoring that GTA Online is “dying” due to an alleged lack of Rockstar support, no Heists DLC, and modders.

DomisLive, the operator of a popular YouTube channel, said GTA Online users are “losing millions of dollars” and weapons due to modders and cheaters.

The GTA support forum has been littered with complaints recently about cheaters, he said. 

One person wrote: “Rockstar I was on gta5 Sunday and some modder just took my hard earned 3 million from I didn’t say nothing cuz I’ve been in school and I have the time now to tellyou guys is there a way 4 me to get it back (sic).” Another said, “I have just been robbed of my weapons by an unfair modder .. and he stole by weapons causing me to pay around 1,000,000.” Other users also said that their weapons were stolen or just “vanished.”

It’s suggested that if a modder has stolen millions of dollars, it’s best to contact Rockstar directly.  

Regarding the delayed Heists update, there’s been little to no new information about the game.

Another YouTube operator, iCrazyTeddy, speculated that Heists probably won’t be coming out in the near future.

He said in the recently video that “a lot of [his] fans” are angry that Rockstar isn’t answering questions about the Heists DLC or other updates that were promised. “But Heists are still not here,” he said, adding that hackers have gone through source code and found it’s being developed.

And without the Heists and Casino DLCs, he adds that Rockstar hasn’t really delivered on replacement updates. “The recent ones really haven’t been up to scratch,” he said, adding that “it’s completely outrageous” that they came out without any prior announcement.

Along with complaints about modding, there’s been clamoring that GTA Online is “dying” even though the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions are on the way in a few months.
