Epic GTA V Semi Truck Stunts Return

Long, long ago we reported on some seriously insane stunts performed in GTA V using semi trucks. These stunts involved driving a semi up a ramp, catching air, de-attaching the trailer, flipping the truck, landing, and having the trailer land in a way that it re-attaches to the semi. We also showcased a number of other extremely impressive GTA V stunts involving large, cumbersome vehicles.


Well, the daredevil behind those feats has now returned for yet again another epic stunt using a semi, pulled off in GTA V. Once again involving the trailer and some flight, Blacksmoke Billy decided to add explosives to the mix this time around, because, you know, his stunts weren’t visually impressive enough until now, after all.

What we see below is as follows: Man enters truck. Man equips C4. Man Drives truck. Man begins seeping pure testosterone through all cavities. Man throws C4. Man detaches trailer from truck. C4 explodes. Trailer flies into air. Trailer goes above overpass. Trailer lands on truck. Trailer re-attaches. Sunglasses materialize on man’s face.

I mean, this might not quite be up to the caliber of actual time travel in GTA V, but it sure as hell comes in as a close second coolest thing in GTA ever.

Granted, Billy did use some mods for this stunt which ruins the magic a tad. He used an invincibility mod to prevent the C4 from destroying the truck when it detonates, he used a down-scaled nuke mod to pack enough explosive power into the sticky bomb to send the trailer flying, and he reduced the weight of the trailer to a measly 10 grams so that it is light enough to fly. Even so, this is still an extremely impressive GTA V stunt.

What as the coolest stunt any of you guys pulled off in GTA V?

GTA Documentary “Gamechangers” Airs

We recently reported on the first-released trailer for BBC’s upcoming documentary on the first few games of the GTA franchise.

The film stars Daniel Radcliffe (of Harry Potter fame) as Rockstar co-founder and head honcho Sam Houser and Bill Paxton as Jack Thompson. The film drew the ire of Rockstar Games, as BBC green lit the project without any consultation with the developer what so ever. Rockstar went straight for the lawsuit, which is still on-going. However despite the legal altercations the airing of the film is happening on schedule, meaning tonight, on BBC Two from 9 PM.

The film follows the story of Jack Thompson, the wet dream of every single 60-something hyper-conservative catholic white American woman out there, and his crusade to get the GTA games banned. His and Sam Houser’s battle unfolds into one of the most famous (or infamous) controversies of the gaming industry. The name of Thompson is one that is generally spat upon in gaming circles, mainly due to the fact that his vendetta against gaming appeared to be fuelled by personal greed more than anything else.

The film is based on real life events and evidence. However it has been dramatized and is presented in the form of a narrative. As the legal dispute continues behind sealed doors, the release of the film seems like an unconventional and risky move by Rockstar, who have skirted the anti-video game crowd perpetually since their foundation. Daniel Radcliffe might seem like a strange choice for this role, however the beard fits him pretty well.

Will any of you guys be tuning in to the GTA documentary?

GTA V Meets Bond. James Bond.

James Bond is a franchise much like The Lord of the Rings or Star Wars in that whether or not you are a fan, you know more or less what it is, what it is about, who is in it. You know what “007” is, you know the phrases “My Precious” and “May the Force be with you”.

The James Bond franchise, which started out as a series of books penned by Ian Fleming, has had a long history on the silver screen with several actors depicting the famous suave British spy, who were all awarded with a signature Aston Martin for portraying Bond. The current “host” of the James Bond persona is British actor Daniel Craig, who will be playing the legendary character for at least five films, of which the upcoming and highly anticipated Spectre is the fourth.

With the premier of the film drawing close, trailers have been steadily released. And what happens when the GTA V community gets its hands on popular movie trailers?

They jump straight into the Rockstar Editor, a versatile game play recording and video editing suite designed specifically for GTA V and recreate the trailer in the game’s engine.

Now, James Bond has never been a pacifist, so we’ll be leaving out the line about “added GTA brand violence. The original trailer has plenty of it, not to mention intrigue, mystery, betrayal and gloom. Lots of gloom. The majority of characters are portrayed by custom models in the recreation, but you’ll see a few familiar faces along the way.

The new film, Spectre, will shine some (hopefully not too much) light on the mysterious organisation of the same name, which has been omnipresent in the franchise as the primary antagonist. Spectre is the Bond ‘verse’s Illuminati-esque super-rich, super-influential, super-secret and super-evil group of the world’s 0.1%’.

Are you guys looking forward to Spectre?

Watch the First Trailer For BBC’s Controversial GTA Drama

As you probably know GTA is a rather controversial franchise. The non-gaming layers of society always look down upon the display and depiction of themes such as violence, crime, and sex in video games, and these are the usual culprits when you have a 50-something conservative politician trying to ban video games because “oh god someone think of the children”.


Violence, crime and sex are themes which appear in the GTA franchise. Hell, the first two are the GTA franchise. Back when GTA was just taking its baby steps, and when they still actually wrote “GTA” on the box, the game was already immensely popular and extremely violent. One person, whose name might ring a bell for people who follow the gaming industry and the gaming scene news-wise, tried to get a ban on the franchise. One Jack Thompson, played by Bill Paxton, decided on a sunny morning that he wanted many, many people to be angry at him, so he tried to take the most popular video game of the time out of circulation.

He failed.

The GTA controversy has become an event of legend in the gaming community and is always, always brought up in any discussion of banning video games. BBC decided to make a film-drama about the controversy, with Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter fame playing Rockstar co-founder Sam Houser. Now, the only problem is, BBC decided to do this without Rockstar’s consent, who are now suing.

And yet, the project is still on-going, so much so that BBC released the first trailer, in which we can see a rare bearded Daniel Radcliffe.

This drama goes back to 2002, to tell the story of a three-year period of intense controversy in the history of this iconic game’s development. It happened when two passionate men on either side of a high-stakes cultural divide clashed.

Are you looking forward to The Gamechangers? Lawsuit aside, we sure are!

Godzilla Stomps Around GTA V (Or Not)

Someone has remade the teaser trailer for the Godzilla reboot in GTA V using the Rockstar editor. And not only did they go for maximum authenticity, they’ve gone above and beyond all expectations. You know how the official trailer barely showed anything of the titular beast? Well, this GTA V video shows none.


Considering mods are a thing that exists, it feels like a bit of a cop out, but if you look at it as building suspense much like the official trailer did with just the tiny snippet of ‘Zilla being shown, you can appreciate the GTA V version for what it is.

Godzilla is the forefather of the Kaiju craze of Japan. Really, really old movies wherein a guy dressed up in a plastic suit stomps around a cardboard city, fighting humans or other men in plastic suits was the apex of popular Japanese cinema for a very long time, with Godzilla topping the charts.

Godzilla looks vaguely like a massive T-Rex (or exactly like a massive T-Rex – again, depends on which country you ask), just a tad fatter, with better posture and cool spikes running down his spine. He can also breath radioactive flames.

Recently, Godzilla has been made an honorary citizen of Japan due to the immense cultural influence attributed to the Kaiju. The recent big budget movie was the second attempt to translate Godzilla to western audiences, and went several times better than the first.

Since we’ve had mods put Reapers into GTA V, I’d love to see a full-sized Godzilla stomping around Los Santos. Maybe the player could even control it?

What did you guys think of last year’s Godzilla?

We Shine The Spotlight On GTA V Fan Videos

Once again Rockstar has taken to it’s Newswire to increase the popularity of select GTA V fan videos which go above and beyond all expectations. These videos are particularly well shot, particularly entertaining, particularly crazy or particularly professional. The one thing that is common among them all is the immense amount of effort that went into perfecting them, into making them the best of the best.


Occasionally Rockstar has been known to use it’s own blog as a platform to spread the word on select fan creations, be it jobs, videos, challenges or art.

This week, they’ve brought us the cream of the crop when it comes to Rockstar Editor creations. We here at GTA 5 Cheats decided to complement Rockstar’s list with the unsung stars of GTA V fan videos.

First up we have “Breackneck”, an 8 minute short film made using the Rockstar Editor, 150 GB of footage, and a custom soundtrack mixed one-effect-at-a-time, containing over 1100 individual sounds. If you think that’s impressive, wait till you see the video. It is inspired by some of the greatest car chase scenes in all of cinematography, and features Trevor as he attempts a high speed escape. Every scene is made with care, and the whole thing oozes professionalism.

Next up we have a rather valiant effort of creating a GTA V video on a console instead of PC. While the Rockstar Editor will be releasing on consoles soon, it hasn’t quite happened yet, and creating machinima in consoles is significantly more difficult. This video is a GTA V adaptation of Friday the 13th. Jason uses a rubber baton instead of a machete, and the scream near the beginning of the film is still better voice acting that the source material. Check it out!

Rockstar collected some truly great videos in their list. Which videos would you guys add?

Star Wars Episode VII Meets GTA V (Video)

Fans all over the world are highly anticipating the upcoming release of Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens. With not much info to go on, wild speculation has flooded the internet regarding possible plot points and other details. Of course, in the mean time, fans of the franchise have been looking to get their Star Wars fix in any way possible, which means Star Wars themed stuff leaking into other franchises as well.

With several Star Wars themed mods available for GTA V, such as an X-wing in place of one of the jets, and an Imperial Star Destroyer replacing the blimp, it was inevitable that someone would get around to recreating some of the trailers for episode VII with the Rockstar Editor, which will be heading to consoles soon.


This video manages to recreate the first teaser for Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens, and does it without mods at that. A pretty impressive feat, the video is perfectly authentic, with skilled pilots pulling off the various flight maneuvers. With fighter jets as stand-ins for the X-Wings, and a large passenger plane taking the place of the Millennium Falcon, all the unique Star Wars vehicles are replaced with the more grounded rides of GTA V. Landspeeder? Quad bike!

The attention to detail present in this video is impressive. The creators have painstakingly made sure that every movement is emulated as closely as possible. The only place for improvement would be the scene with Kylo Ren in the forest, though recreating that in GTA V might be outright impossible, so we’ll let it slide.

Now, if the same team would remake this using some of the sweet Star Wars themed GTA V mods out there, that would most certainly restore balance to the force.

Are you guys looking forward to The Force Awakens?

Need For Speed Reboot E3 Trailer Recreated in GTA V

The trailers of upcoming car games being recreated in GTA V using the versatile Rockstar Editor is hardly a new phenomenon. People have been using the Rockstar Editor to create more and more detailed recreations of popular scenes from movies and television series, as well as the trailers for upcoming films and games. These videos have been getting more detailed and creative as people learned how to use the software to its fullest potential, recreating scenes with greater authenticity than one might assume.


We’ve seen recreations of Mad Max, Breaking Bad, John Wick’s trailer. In the vein of gaming, we’ve seen the E3 trailer of the upcoming Forza Motorsport 6 recreated using GTA V in extreme detail. Now, from the same user, comes the GTA-ification of the E3 trailer of the upcoming Need For Speed reboot (which has no reason to exist. Reboot, seriously?).

Grand Theft Speed comes to us from RavenwestR1, who seemingly has a flare for cars and car games, based on the mastery of his craft. Check out his creation below!

For those of you who din’t have the memory of a Drell, or simply haven’t seen the original trailer before, here it is for comparison.

RavenwestR1 states that this project was significantly more difficult to do than his previous recreations

After 9 days of trial and error finally [I’ve] done it. This is by far somehow become the hardest remake I’ve ever done, but the result is probably not as good as [the Forza] 6 remake. And sorry if the whole video is too dark, for me that’s actually creates better ‘atmosphere’. Hell, this is much harder than [the Forza] 6 remake, it took me 9 days with [an average of] 6-7 hours per day to create this. Lots of things happened, in fact I think I probably will upload some outakes.. hehe..

What do you guys think of this recreation?

The 60 fps GTA V Trailer is Out


As promised, Rockstar treated fans today to a special GTA V PC trailer that shows the game running at 60 frames per second. It’s an impressive trailer, so check it out.

Some fans are disappointed that this trailer only showed clips from the game, rather than new features coming to the PC version like the video editor. What do you think?

GTA V’s PC release is less than two weeks away. Get ready for April 14!

Trailer for Star Wars VII Remade in GTA V


We were just talking last week about all of the entertaining creations fans have made using GTA V and GTA Online, and now it’s time for another one. Youtube user Powerlight-13 decided to give Star Wars the GTA V treatment, with a re-creation of last month’s teaser trailer for Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens. Check it out.

If you’d like to compare it to the actual trailer, here it is.

What do you think? Worthy attempt, or do you think GTA V is capable of a better Star Wars trailer? On the other hand, perhaps we should be asking a more important question: once GTA V comes out for the PC in January, how long do you think it will be before someone creates a Star Wars mod?
