GTA V Online deals with cheaters in explosive ways

Now that Heists have finally arrived for GTA V Online, Rockstar’s servers are unsurprisingly busier than ever. That means more pew pew, more vroom vroom and definitely more cheaters ruining the previous two for everyone else. Cheating is prevalent in any online game, and it’s the way developers treat it that’s far more important. And Rockstar have basically nailed it down to perfection.

An exploit in GTA Online is allowing some players to import vehicles from their single-player campaign into the online universe, which is causing all sorts of issues for fair play and balance. The heavily armored muscle car, Dukes O’Death, is at the center of this exploit, and Rockstar hasn’t let it go unchecked. But rather than just kicking players from servers without real consequence, they’ve implemented something a little more inventive.

Should you manage to get the car imported into an online session, you’ll have a far more difficult time actually trying to use it as the video above shows. As soon as you try entire the vehicle, it explodes into a fiery mass of man and machine – and deals you a healthy serving of monetary fines and humiliation. Easy way to teach those that cheating isn’t fair in GTA Online, although murder is still par for the course.

More exploits and hacks are bound to surface when GTA V finally launches on PC this time next week, so Rockstar better be on their toes. Heists will be available on day-one, which is really the only consolation for the master race having to wait this darn long for some quality GTA action. You can begin pre-loading your pre-ordered copy already, and keep the below trailer on repeat until next week Tuesday.

Let’s just pray it’s a better port job than GTA IV.

        I think a lot of people are going to pirate it BECAUSE Rockstar held the game back for pc. Just as a big f*^% you.
        I will wait for a nice sale. Around $7.50. Before I settle into this game.

            Feels really old now. Even with the graphics mods. Not really worth playing imo.
            I played Sleeping Dogs a bit the weekend. Doesn’t feel aged at all, but it’s a much younger game.

            Once you get to the number of Steam games we have there are lots of $5’s that you might never get around to πŸ˜‰

            If I’m to go on Randelas per Hour of gameplay then PayDay 2, 7 Days to die and Skyrim were steals and Deadlight was a ripoff.

          • Admiral Chief

            April 7, 2015 at 14:02

            Deadlight was, interesting, but a terrible ending!

          • Captain JJ the flash noob

            April 7, 2015 at 14:03

            I agree. It wasn’t a rip-off, because it was actually a good game, but man that ending. And at just over 3 hours it was way too short. Sure, it was just $5 or something, but still.

      I have an idea there’s money to be made in countries like ours, with shitty internet infrastructure, where a brick & mortar store could offer to provide the install files to people who bought the digital version of the game for a fee. Something along the lines of “bring in proof of purchase and an external drive, & we’ll give you the files for R10”.

      I’d definitely make use of a service like that, though the argument to be made there is that if you’re going to be going into the shop to pick up the install files, why not just buy the game from them in the first place……

        Better yet, get ISP’s like mweb that has retail stores in malls to have a large server with usb 3 ports and steam backups of the games.

        You dont need to check fro Proof of Purchase etc since it will not unlock for your steam account unless you have it on your account.

        ISP can simply download and send the backups to the servers and end users can walk in and grab a copy to take home and restore to their account.

          That would be an excellent way for this to work. The only issue I can see is it could limit access to that particular ISPs customers, and if you’re not with that ISP then you’re out of luck.

          Which isn’t entirely unreasonable really, as it’s a service that would require investment in infrastructure, such as the servers in the shops, and that doesn’t come cheap.

          It would also perhaps limit your options to games that are available on Steam / Origin / uPlay (hack-ptooi!), but eh, pretty much everything is available on those these days, so that shouldn’t be a real issue.

    now if they could do something about the actual cheaters not just vehicle exploits. Like the guys that run around invincible. Also work on servers because there are far to many server issues with crashing, guys lagging and warping around the map, and unregistered shots, or shots not data not updating properly so while you’re in complete cover you are still being shot/ you unload an entire clip into a target with only for them to run off as if they hadn’t been touched, or for you to deal out a lovely headshot and see the guy just walk off (BTW have videos of all of that). Oh and stop the current trend of high pinging out of region players, man I really hate that current trend, give them some server support so that all of us can have a stable fun enjoyable time. Thanks, now make it happen!

    The thing that amazes me with this game is the attention to detail in every aspect, the PC version should be bloody amazing too, I mean just in this trailer, look at the way that the DOF has been implemented, it’s just jaw dropping…

    What I hope is that GTA 4 mods could be ported onto this awesomeness, like from here http://www.gtaall.com/gta-4/ They are using the same engine after all (I guess).
