GTA V Update Breaks Mods, Fixes Other Issues on PC

by Kyle Hanson


The latest GTA V update is out from Rockstar. Update 350.1 fixes a lot of issues that players might have encountered in the PC version of the game, such as vehicle bugs, game freezes, and many more. However, one possibly unintended side effect of the update is that it has broken or disabled many of the mods that have been released for GTA V. The GTA V modding community is currently discussing the problem, and is showing users how to downgrade their game in the meantime if they wish to keep their mods functional. This will prevent access to GTA Online though, so you’ll have to decide which is more important until a workaround can be achieved.

The full patch notes can be seen below. Mods aren’t mentioned in them, so this might have been an accidental consequence, which could be rectified fairly quickly.

  • Vehicles in your garage can no longer be accidentally replaced with vehicles from the street.
  • Improved stability and fixed several crashes and hangs while transitioning between Jobs in GTA Online.
  • Fixed an issue where certain players were unable to exit their garages while inside of a personal vehicle.
