GTA V Ill-Gotten Gains Busting Vehicle Replicators

CarDupe_1

Grand Theft Auto Online’s newest update, 1.27, which included the first part of the Ill-Gotten Gains DLC, featured a plethora of tweaks, bug-fixes and security updates (which also killed mods on PC), as well as quite a bit of content, such as luxury jets, new vehicles and weapon engravings.

Turns out, some of the changes implemented by Rockstar in the patch are only seeing the light of day with a slight delay. One of these tweaks is the addition of a new stat which tracks the sale of vehicles. Patch 1.09/1.23 introduced a glitch which, in the right conditions, allowed players to duplicate vehicles, taking them back to their garage, and selling them as many times as they repeat the process. The method was unreliable at best, and required extreme patience for it to actually pay off, but some people out there were making a killing off duplicated vehicles.

With the new update, the rule regarding the 48 minute time limit, allowing players to sell a total of six cars per day before getting the warning about exceeding the limit is overridden. With the tracking enabled by the new stat in place, Rockstar can monitor people who make use of vehicle duplication and sales glitches, and ban them accordingly.

Rockstar has been very diligent in cracking down on any and all glitches or exploits that influence the game’s economy. GTA Online has a flourishing stock market, and while these glitches are in place, people turning a profit from them will have an unfair edge over those gamers who prefer to play in an honest manner.

The game’s stock market is also the reason why there is no money cheat implemented in single player. The stock market we access from the SP mode is the same one operating in GTA Online, therefore a single player money cheat would still wreak havoc on the stock prices in Online, with disastrous consequences.

For those of you who need a money-boost, Rockstar is offering Shark Cash Cards as DLC. PC gamers beware, though, as purchasing these voids your right to a steam refund.

Six New GTA V Cell Phone Cheats Found

gtav02272015_8

Today we’re pleased to bring you six new cell phone numbers that will activate cheats in Grand Theft Auto V. While the cheats themselves are not new (eg “spawn BMX”), the discovery of the cell phone numbers to activate them is.

Cheats in the Xbox One, PS4 and PC versions of GTA V can be activated either by entering a button combination, or by entering a specific number on a cell phone. The only thing is that all of the cell phone versions of the cheats have not yet been found, however today you can cross six off of that list!

Make sure you check out the full list of cell phone cheats for GTA 5 here (the ones discovered so far) and check below for a summary of the new ones that have just been found.

  • Max Health & Armor: 1-999-887-853 (TURTLE)
  • Raise Wanted Level: 1-999-3844-8483 (FUGITIVE)
  • Explosive Melee Attacks: 1-999-4684-2637 (HOTHANDS)
  • Slippery Cars (also known as drifting): 1-999-766-9329 (SNOWDAY)
  • Spawn BMX: 1-999-226-348 (BANDIT)
  • Spawn Stunt Plane (fixed-wing stunt plane): 1-999-2276-78676 (BARN-STORM)

Cheat Limitations in GTA V

Grand Theft Auto V, a game that’s only increased in popularity since its initial release in 2013, has all of the elements that have made GTA games popular in the past. But for all of the praise it has received as the best GTA game yet, there are some players who miss certain aspects of previous titles in the series.

Cheat codes have been one of the most popular gameplay elements for fans of Grand Theft Auto V, primarily because of cheat codes’ ability to manipulate the gameplay and enable the player to have more fun – like using cheats to activate things such as moon gravity, invincibility, and weather changes.

GTA-Online-heists-screenshot-1

However many fans of GTA V have been disappointed with some of the cheats in it, mainly because of certain limitations placed upon their use. For example, if you use the cheat code for invincibility, you can expect your invincibility to run out after five minutes, which can be very frustrating if you’re in the middle of a situation where invincibility is necessary to do what you want (imagine a shoot-out versus 20 cops!). Other fans are frustrated by the super jump cheat disabling once your character moves into an internal structure.

Part of the design of GTA V obviously included these limitations, but it’s curious as to why Rockstar decided to take this route with the cheat codes, especially since there were no limitations on the cheat codes in previous games in the Grand Theft Auto series. One of the aspects players often enjoyed most in previous titles in the series was the ability to turn the world into absolute chaos and yet walk away unscathed because of cheat codes. Some fans have speculated that Rockstar included cheat code limitations in order to make GTA 5 a little more realistic and present more of a challenge to players who often rely on cheat codes to get them out of sticky situations.

GTA-Online-heists-screenshot-4

Whatever the reason for the inclusion of cheat code limitations in Grand Theft Auto V, fans of the game are definitely frustrated, especially fans who have been playing GTA games for years. While not every GTA game has the same cheat codes built in, there are definitely some that fans have gotten used to, and that importantly that worked without limitations. Five-minute invincibility is a new concept and is hard to see as a step up from the unlimited invincibility of the past. Perhaps Rockstar will remove these limitations in the next instalment of the series to give players the level of control they once enjoyed.

How will Cheats for GTA V on PC be Activated?

pc-4k-2

PC gamers who are fans of the Grand Theft Auto series of games have something exciting to look forward to this year when Grand Theft Auto V (finally) releases for PC on March 24. The game, which was originally released for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in 2013, has been completely remastered, giving fans who have already played the original version of the game plenty of new content and an improved gaming experience.

The game became instantly popular upon its initial launch, which was only a couple months before the Playstation 4 and Xbox One were also released. This prompted many fans who had upgraded their systems to want a version of the game for their new consoles. Then last year Rockstar Games announced that the game would be coming to the new platforms as well as PC. The remastered game was re-released for PS4 and Xbox One on November 18 2014 with the PC version being set back for a 2015 release.

One aspect of the game that fans are particularly excited about is the cheat codes that can be used to significantly alter some elements of game play (and yes, what this website is essentially all about!). Cheat codes have always been popular with GTA fans and some of the most popular cheats for GTA V give players the ability to change the weather, or give the game world moon gravity. Of course, the ever-popular cheats that give you maximum health or allow you to spawn new vehicles are also there. It’s easy to see why cheat codes would make the game even more fun than it already is because it gives you a high level of control over many of the elements that make it so popular.

pc-4k-4

An interesting question though, is how fans will be able to enter cheat codes on the PC version of the game. With the Xbox One and PS4 console versions, you have two main ways you can enter codes: control button combinations and by entering phone numbers into the in-game phone of your character. Using cell phone numbers has added an element of fun by giving the phone a purpose that significantly affects gameplay, it is also how cheats codes have been traditionally entered in previous GTA games like Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. That said though, being able to use controller button combinations is actually easier most of the time. Note that the first two platform releases of GTA V, on the Xbox 360 and PS3, only allow cheats to be entered via controller button combinations.

Turning to the PC version though, while it’s likely that phone number cheats will be made available (as they have been with the other remastered versions – on Xbox One and PS4), the question is whether there will be additional means of cheat entry, like via the keyboard. We note that GTA: SA had cheat entry via the keyboard too (with usually a couple of different codes being available to activate a specific cheat), and as we said earlier, using the cell phone to enter cheats can be time consuming and difficult in the middle of a car chase or gun fight.

Using the in-game phone for entering cheat codes is definitely a fun addition to the game, but reducing cheat code entry to just phone numbers will likely just frustrate players who may find they enjoy the console versions better for this reason. It’s easy to envision why phone numbers may be the only option because if you’re just using your PC keyboard, you’re not working with a controller and button combinations. However, you’d hope Rockstar also wants players to have the best gaming experience possible, and that would make it unlikely that the PC version would lack something the remastered console versions have – the ability to type in keyboard entries for cheat codes.

GTA V for PC releases March 24 this year. You can pre-order it at your favorite retailer here.

Three New GTA V Cell Phone Cheats

GTA V wallpaper 1

Three new GTA V cell phone cheats have been discovered. If you have the PS4 or Xbox One version of GTA V (or the PC version, when it comes out later this month), you can activate Drunk Mode and Fast Run, as well as cycle through weather effects, by entering the following numbers from your in-game cell phone:

Drunk Mode
Warning: do not attempt to operate heavy machinery!
1-999-547-861 (LIQUOR)

Fast Run
1-999-228-8463 (CATCH ME)

Change Weather
Rotates through sunny, clear, cloudy, smoggy, overcast, rainy, thundery, clearing and snowing
1-999-625-348-7246 (MAKE IT RAIN)

They can now be found listed with the rest of our cheats for GTA V remastered. Additionally, the new versions of GTA V have brought another benefit for players who enjoy cheat codes. While in the original versions, you had to re-enter each code every time you used it, these cell phone cheats make it a little easier thanks to a redial button. Pressing the phone’s * key will dial the last number, or re-activate the last cheat code, you entered.

First Cell Phone Cheat Discovered

skyfall

The next-gen versions of Grand Theft Auto V on the PS4 and Xbox One are delivering more for cheat code and money seekers with the latest development being the discovery of the first cell phone cheat for GTA 5.

One of the biggest complaints that gamers have with GTA V is that cheats cannot be saved into the cell phone, like in previous Grand Theft Auto titles. Instead, you need to enter a specific button combination each time you’d like to activate a cheat.

In this regard we have some good news and some bad news. Yes, phone cheats appear to be back with the release of of GTA 5 on Xbox One and PS4, but you still cannot save them (i.e. you need to dial the relevant number each time you want to use the cheat).

The first phone cheat discovered is the SKYFALL cheat. To use it, simply dial the following into your cell phone:

1-999-759-3255 (1-999-SKY-FALL)

The SKYFALL cheat is one of the game’s more entertaining, and instantly transports you into the air, free-falling. Try it out for yourself and don’t forget to send us any more cheat codes you happen to discover! For the full list of GTA V cheat codes for your system, just click the relevant controller icon in the sidebar or below.

Bring Any Story Mode Car into GTA Online

gta-online-rhap

It is possible for you to bring a car from your single player game into GTA Online even after the latest update – you just can’t do it with DLC cars or with cars labeled as “too hot.”

Follow the steps below to bring any other car into GTA Online:

  1. First, drive the car to any Los Santos Customs location.
  2. Save your game.
  3. Drive it into Los Santos Customs.
  4. Pause the game and choose to enter an Invite Only Session of GTA Online.
  5. From there, pause again and choose to host a Job.
  6. Pick a race.
  7. Complete the race.
  8. Rate the race.
  9. Quit out of the “Vote on the next Job” screen, which should make you spawn in Los Santos Customs in the car you drove there, even though you’re still online.
  10. Either sell the car or take it to your garage.
  11. Switch back to single player to repeat the process if you would like to bring more cars into GTA Online.

If it isn’t working for you, there are a few things you can try… Make sure you don’t have any of your GTA Online vehicles outside of your garage, because sometimes you’ll spawn into them instead. Also, adjust your spawn location settings if you continue to have trouble. After all that if you still continue to spawn in the wrong spawn, reload your save and try again.

Switch targets in Buzzard

We’ve also got one final tip for you – when flying a Buzzard helicopter and using rockets against multiple targets, you can tap L1/LB and R1/RB (PS3/Xbox 360) to switch the target you’re locked onto.

If you don’t want to lock on to your target, aim with the miniguns and switch to the rockets just before you fire.

Thanks to DutchAThon for sending in the vehicle glitch and TheDoob for posting the Buzzard tip.

GTA Online: Rat Loader Minus the Bed and Unlimited, Repeated RP

rat-loader

Today we have a couple of handy hints for GTA Online for you. The first lets you earn unlimited RP without doing anything (other than dying) in the Crooked Cop mission. The second will enable you to obtain a Rat Loader vehicle with a bed on the back. Enjoy!

Earn Unlimited RP during Crooked Cop

Follow the instructions below to earn unlimited RP during the “Crooked Cop” mission. Note that you’ll need a second player to help you!

  1. First, go to “Jobs,” and then to “Versus,” and select the “Crooked Cop” mission.
  2. When the mission begins, make your way to the army base.
  3. Get a car and drive into the army base.
  4. Wait for the tanks to arrive to attack you, and then let them kill you.
  5. You will respawn within the army base and earn 400 RP. Your wanted level will reach 4 stars, so the tanks will seek you out and kill you again.
  6. Then simply let this process repeat over and over for as long as you want!

Rat Loader without a Bed

If you want to create a Rat Loader without the bed then follow the directions below…

  1. Go to Los Santos Customs with your Rat Loader.
  2. Once there, choose “Truck Beds.”
  3. You can buy any bed you want, as long as it is not the stock option.
  4. Hold down RT if you are playing on the Xbox 360 and R2 if you are playing on the PS3 and scroll.
  5. Stop scrolling and keep trying to land on the “Stock Bed” choice without the bed actually being visible (if you don’t simply hold the relevant button and scroll again until you get it).
  6. When you do, select that option and you will now have a Rat Loader without a bed.
