GTA-V-San-Andreas-weekend

It’s time for another special weekend event in GTA Online, as Rockstar continues to celebrate the anniversary of Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas. Starting tomorrow, October 24, and extending through October 26, you’ll earn Double RP and Double GTA$ every time you play the San Andreas Throwback Jobs, which make up the Featured Playlist for this event.

These jobs will also be featured in a Twitch live stream tomorrow at 4 PM Eastern Time.

As you play, you’ll also have a chance to get classic radio station T-shirts, along with weapons and GTA$, by keeping a lookout for Crate Drops. All green clothing items will be 50% off, as will BMX bikes and bandanas. Lowered suspension vehicle mods will be 25% off.

Of course, you have a chance to win exclusive prizes, too! Take Snapmatic shots of your San Andreas celebrations and post them to the Social Club with the tag #GTASanAndreas. Five lucky winners will each receive a basketball, a bandana, a 10th Anniversary T-shirt, playing cards and poker chips, the Kubrick Box Set, and stickers, all with a San Andreas theme. Be sure to read the Official Rules before you enter.

Does this mean Rockstar might announce a San Andreas re-release? We can’t say for sure, but maybe we’ll learn something this weekend. In the meantime, enjoy the event! Check out the official announcement for the full details.

GTA V Heists Code Found – Launch Imminent?


gta-v-heists

Heists… where do we even begin!? The one year anniversary of Grand Theft Auto V’s launch recently passed and heists, a feature promised and touted by Rockstar as a major part of the game, are still missing from GTA Online.

We’ve have update upon update, and controversy after controversy in respect of GTA Online, and yet heists are still nowhere to be found… even with the launch of GTA 5 on the Xbox One and Playstation 4 coming next month in November, and the PC version following in January next year.

Are heists, finally, almost upon us though? User “funmw2″ from the GTAForums seems to think so and recently posted the code you can see below. Apparently it was added to the source code within GTA V as part of The Last Man Standing update that went live just a few days ago.

  • [0x02084EA9]
    GTA Online: Complete a Heist finale without anyone dying.
  • [0x02814D53]
    You completed a Heist prep mission.
  • [0x0B613162]
    You completed a Heist finale without taking any damage.
  • [0x0D1CCCEE]
    GTA Online: Invest your hard earned cash to set up a Heist.
  • [0x1279D064]
    You completed The Pacific Standard Job as Heist Leader or Crew.
  • [0x18E0B12D]
    GTA Online: Earn 5 gold medals across Heist preps and finales.
  • [0x2461135F]
    You earned 25 gold medals across Heist preps and finales.
  • [0x2B55B227]
    You invested your hard earned cash and set up a Heist.
  • [0x2DD110E8]
    GTA Online: Complete a Heist prep mission.
  • [0x2EBD3538]
    You earned 5 gold medals across Heist preps and finales.
  • [0x3DDD9050]
    GTA Online: Complete a Heist finale without taking any damage.
  • [0x41A4A445]
    GTA Online: Complete The Prison Break as Heist Leader or Crew.
  • [0x4FDE48C5]
    GTA Online: As Heist Leader set the finale cut as 25% across all players.
  • [0x68870839]
    You completed a Heist finale without anyone dying.
  • [0x8AA2D780]
    Prep Mission
  • [0x8B59FB4E]
    Heist
  • [0x91F12997]
    As Heist Leader you set the finale cut as 25% across all players.
  • [0x93EF3B70]
    GTA Online: Complete The Pacific Standard Job as Heist Leader or Crew.
  • [0xB0D21411]
    GTA Online: Earn 25 gold medals across Heist preps and finales.
  • [0xC8AA9219]
    You completed The Humane Labs Raid as Heist Leader or Crew.
  • [0xF59037BD]
    GTA Online: Complete The Humane Labs Raid as Heist Leader or Crew.

As you can see it appears to be a list of Achievements/Trophies that can be earned while carrying out heists. Given the code was literally only just included within the “live game”, does this mean that Rockstar Games are actually preparing to open up/launch heists publicly in GTA Online?

Let us know what you think… the crew here at GTA 5 Cheats think that heists will be launched some time this month, prior to the launch of the game on the Xbox One and PS4 next month in November. What do you think?

The Last Team Standing Update – Still No Heists


GTA-V-Last-Team-Standing

Public Service Announcement: First things first, there is no heists in this update. With that out of the way, let’s continue…

Increased firepower has arrived in GTA V and GTA Online with today’s release of the Last Team Standing Update. In addition to new jobs, weapons, and more, the update brought with it the Last Team Standing Creator Mode, so you can make your own Last Team Standing Jobs.

Rockstar has also enhanced the way Job voting works, added lobby queues, and fixed dozens of other issues.

First-Person: What Are You Looking Forward To?


GTA V wallpaper 1

With the PS4, Xbox One, and PC versions of GTA V getting closer every day, it’s time to really start thinking about some of the new features. Although it hasn’t been officially announced, we have reason to believe there will be a first-person view mode. If true, that will really change the way you can look at GTA V’s world, especially with the graphical improvements of the remastered versions.

To no one’s surprise, some players are mainly interested in whether or not they’ll be able to enter sex scenes in first-person mode, or if the camera will revert to third-person on its own. Other players have different things in mind, such as one Reddit user who is excited about potential first-person submarine exploration.

Vehicles may benefit the most from the immersion of first-person, as being in a crashing helicopter, for example, will be a much different experience if you’re looking out from the cockpit than if you have an exterior view.

Right now, the official first-person mode for GTA V is still a rumor. The leak might have been faked, or it might have been an old idea that was cut. Assuming for the moment that it’s true, however, what are you most looking forward to seeing and doing in first person? Where do you most want to explore?

Rumor Says Heists Arrive Next Week


gta-online-logo

Despite all the announcements and updates for GTA V and GTA Online lately, we know a lot of you haven’t heard the news you want. Fans were waiting for news about heists ever since they were first announced for this past spring, and when they were delayed, the news caused resentment and disappointment. Many people believed Rockstar held them back to release them alongside the remastered versions of GTA V, but a new rumor claims we’ll see heists on the Xbox 360 and PS3 before the new versions come out.

Next week, in fact.

Youtube user DomisLive believes heists may come to GTA Online on Tuesday, September 23. Of course, this is just a rumor, but DomisLive is the same one who discovered news of the I’m Not a Hipster Update, among other things.

The GTA V servers and Rockstar Social Club went down 9:00 AM ET today and will remain down until 10:00 AM ET tomorrow, because of maintenance being performed on the leaderboards. Since past rumors claim the heists will be accompanied by revamped leaderboards, this could be a good sign.

For the full reasoning behind DomisLive’s prediction that heists are less than a week away, check out his video.

What do you think? Is this rumor just false speculation, or could heists really be on their way?

GTA Online Jobs: Red Dead Redemption


GTA-V-RDD-Jobs

Rockstar has featured “Throwback” GTA Online jobs created by fans before, and now another batch has been highlighted. Instead of focusing on past Grand Theft Auto elements, these jobs all call back to Rockstar’s 2010 open world game set in the Old West, Red Dead Redemption. Are you a fan of Red Dead Redemption, or are you unfamiliar with it? Either way, these eight games should give you a taste of what it was like.

For the Xbox 360, we have:

  • Red Dead Redemption, by LordSando – a Deathmatch game that mimics RDD’s Duels, set in the Chiliad Mountain State Wilderness.
  • Tesoro Azul, by JasetheChase – an excellent recreation of the Tesoro Azul hideout from Nuevo Paraiso, with a team-based where players have to take their opponent’s bag back to their own team’s base.
  • RED DEAD, by ScarfacexD16 – a Team Deathmatch at the base of Mount Chiliad and Mount Gordo, meant to remind you of gunslinging days with its Pistol-only combat.
  • Tall Trees, by adeadzombiebones – Raton Canyon takes the place of RDD’s Tall Trees hunting area, with Pistol and Shotgun combat.

And for the PS3, we have:

  • Marston’s Ranch, by TheMckeever – this area is meant to resemble Beecher’s Hope, now setting the stage for a deathmatch.
  • Red Dead Race, by Zidane – cross the Great Senora Desert in a Sanchez Point-to-Point Race to recall the high-speed glory of RDD’s Grand Prix races.
  • Red Dead, by ElusiveBlk202 – with train carriages and restricted ammo, this Deathmatch seeks to replicate the tense Duels of Red Dead Redemption.
  • GRAB THE BAG, by BigSo786 – RDD’s Grab the Bag multiplayer game is replicated here in an interesting map that demands strategy and tactical thinking.

These Jobs will be livestreamed by Rockstar this Friday, September 12, at 4PM ET.

Head on over to the official announcement for more details and download links, and be sure to let us know which your favorite is. Have you ever created a GTA Online map based on another game?

  4. Then your buddy needs to invite you to his apartment.
  5. When you are at his apartment then head down into his garage.
  6. As you get to his garage, he needs to walk out of the garage. When he’s outside of it completely, the armored truck should have respawned.
  7. Now he walks in and you walk out and the truck will respawn once more.
  8. Simply rinse and repeat and keep grabbing the money each time!

Five of our Favorite GTA V Glitches


gta-online

Glitches are often a source of contention in video games. Some are bad enough to make the game crash or render it un-winnable, which always annoy fans. Such glitches lead to debates about rushed games and whether or not the developer should have caught the problems beforehand. Then there are controversial glitches, such as Grand Theft Auto Online’s notorious vehicle duplication exploit, which unbalanced the game’s economy.

But sometimes glitches are fun. Players don’t wish they were caught before the game’s release. Instead, they’re sad when a patch takes the glitches away. They are remembered as great tricks, not as problems, and GTA V certainly has its share of those.

So, what are some of GTA V’s most popular glitches?

5. Appearance Glitches

These had no effect on gameplay, but they sure were entertaining. One glitch warped the player’s character model to the point where it looked like an alien abomination. Others just allowed players to take their existing characters back to the customization screen and change their appearance or gender.

The simplest, but perhaps most popular, appearance trick let characters wear hats, masks, and glasses at the same time. Fans loved it, and no matter how many times Rockstar patched it, another method was always waiting to be discovered.

4. Single Player to Multiplayer

In general, the single player GTA V and the multiplayer GTA Online are kept as separate experiences, but not everyone likes that—especially not the people who counted this glitch among their favorites. Through various methods, some of which required the help of a friend, a player could take any vehicle from single player mode into GTA Online.

It was patched on several occasions, which resulted in all the different techniques as players searched for workarounds. After all this time, it seems to be gone for good… as many of the best glitches are.

3. Store a Jet in Your Garage

When players discovered they could steal the Lazer Fighter Jet, their excitement was nothing compared to when they discovered a glitch that let them store it in their GTA Online garages. Even better, fans found a glitch in the vehicle insurance system that allowed them to insure the jet, as well.

Besides the awesomeness of having a jet in your garage, it’s hard to beat the humor of your mechanic trying to drive the jet to you. The glitch applied to other vehicles, as well, but the jet was the most popular. After two patches addressed the issue, it looks like this glitch is no longer possible.

2. North Yankton

North Yankton is a snowy state seen in two of GTA V’s missions, “Prologue” and “Bury the Hatchet.” It was otherwise never visited… until a glitch made it accessible in GTA Online. Ludendorff, the North Yankton town featured in the glitches, would appear in the air above Los Santos. Players could then travel there with a helicopter.

The floating Ludendorff was filled with strange sounds and unusual occurrences due to its partially-completed state, and many players were sad when a patch removed their ability to visit it.

Now that we’ve gone through four of the top fan-favorite glitches, we only have one to go, one that fans seem to miss more than any other.

So, what is it? What GTA V glitch have players enjoyed the most so far?

1. The Hooker Glitch

Rockstar may have patched the original vehicle duplication glitch, but many players continued to search for a new one. This, the number one fan-favorite GTA V glitch, is yet another way to duplicate vehicles. A player could pick up a prostitute, frighten her to keep her in the car after he exited, and then kill her. The player could then order a free car and swap them, which would create a duplicate of the one the dead prostitute was in.

It was a single player glitch through which players could earn millions of dollars in just a few minutes. It was patched once, and fans found a workaround, but the latest update has patched it again.

Whenever a glitch gives a player an advantage, you have to sympathize with Rockstar’s decision to remove it. All the same, it’s hard not to feel sad when fans discuss their favorite glitches and almost all of them have been “fixed.”

Of course, there are many other glitches beyond these five, and everyone has their own personal favorites. What GTA V glitches have you enjoyed the most?

Brand New Sandbox and Air Race Glitches for GTA Online


GTA-V-glitch-error-message

Sometimes glitches can be a lot of fun, such as the GTA Online glitch we covered that allows you to run around in mid-air. Now, as of the recent update, two new glitches are possible that are little more sinister, unfortunately.

The reality is that glitches like these are widely known and easily discoverable, and that talking about them should bring the issue to air in a way that: (1) makes everyone more aware of exactly what is going on/broken in GTA Online; and (2) allows Rockstar to hopefully apply hotfixes to patch them – just like it recently did for an invincibility/god mode glitch, and which is great news. See here for more details on that.

Zero Wanted Level/Invincibility to Everything but Bullets

The first is a glitch discovered by Youtube user FreightTrainWTF for Sandbox Mode. It makes you invincible to everything except for bullet damage, and your wanted level will remain at zero stars no matter what you do. This means that while you can be killed, you’ll never attract the attention of the police or military.

To enter this specific “god mode,” just follow the steps below. You’ll need two friends to help you.

  1. One friend should enter an open lobby for any one of the Flight School DLC missions.
  2. Another friend should invite you to join his or her invite-only game.
  3. Once you’re in the lobby with your second friend, enter Spectator Beta to spectate that session.
  4. Then, once Spectator Beta has loaded, open the menu again and attempt to join your other friend in the Flight School lobby.
  5. Since the Flight School DLC missions are single-player, you’ll see the error message pictured above, telling you the session is full.
  6. You’ll return to the invite-only game with no missions on your radar. This means the glitch has been successful.
  7. When you die, the game will refuse to advance past the screen that says “Wasted.” Once again attempt to join your friend in the Flight School mission lobby, and you’ll be respawned with the glitch fully active.

Air Races Glitch

We’ve still got one more glitch to discuss. This one is minor in comparison, and used in respect of Air Races. Reddit user megaworm2002 discovered that Air Race checkpoints will activate when you fly beneath them no matter how low you are.

Therefore, by placing checkpoints at maximum and minimum altitude, you can trick the game into thinking you’ve completed a longer race in a very short period of time. For example, a race with one checkpoint at the minimum altitude and one directly above it at the maximum altitude will register as a 2 mile race, but you’ll be able to finish it in under 1 second.

However, this glitch doesn’t work when you test races, only during the actual race.

Like any glitches, these should and will hopefully be patched in the next update. At least you are now more fully aware of them and will have a better of idea of exactly what is going on should any scenarios like the above happen while you’re playing GTA 5. Good luck!
