Rockstar takes aim at GTA Online Cheaters

by Al McCarthy on January 16, 2014


Rockstar is taking aim at GTA Online Cheaters by removing the counterfeit GTA$ from the game and penalizing those who have exploited the online economy. A message sent over from Rockstar claims that they will be taking action against players who engaged in using cheats and exploits, giving those players in-game penalties at their discretion.

For those that came into cash but did not exploit the game, their cash will be taken away as well, but will face no in-game disciplinary action.

Rockstar is asking for players to band together and inform them when they see activity in the online game, by using the in-game reporting functionality.

These penalities and fixes should be in place as part of yesterday’s maintenance period for the GTA V.

    All I can say about this is it’s about time they sorted it out. The amount of times I’ve seen people with levels 500+ and people going around in tanks blowing other players up for the hell of it. I had some idiot blow up my personal car three times. Unfortunately it must have been a glitched lobby as I didn’t get paid out on the insurance.:( I’m just glad that I didn’t kill any bounties considering the amount of players being given millions of in-game money.

      It wasn’t a glitch. The jerk blowing you up repeatedly put all his money in cash in a second character, so his account appears to be empty. No money to pay with means you get stuck with the bill. If Rockstar were actually serious about ‘taking aim at cheaters’ they’d fix the cheats that hurt their player base instead of going after the money!

    Rockstar is mad becouse they are losing money becouse they screwed up! I sure as hell am not going too pay more money in a game that was already nearly $100 there crooks and ppl found a way too make the game more enjoyable! I think now with the new update I think Rockstar might have just made the biggest mistake for there own sake! Just wait I’m sure these hackers can end the online altogether! Good luck on your next game Rockstar
