I believe I can fly

Grand Theft Auto V is good and I mean really good. The guys and girls at Rockstar have really outdone themselves this time, but in a game that is so massive there are bound to be glitches and the latest one to be found is the ability to launch your vehicles crazy distances across the map.

The guys at SomeFilthyCasuals have put together some video’s showcasing the two current ways to launch your vehicle.

First up is the railway or train launch, which as you can tell by the name consists of you getting in the way of a train and waiting for the inevitable.

To perform this launch you need to find an indestructible item next to a railway line, such as a barrier or concrete block, and then park your vehicle into that with the back of the vehicle being on the railway track.

Then wait for the Thomas the Tank Engine to come along and launch you. This method doesn’t get you much distance but it is fun enough.

However if you want to take your launching to new heights then take a look at the gate method.

Again for those without video viewing privileges all you need to do is get yourself a vehicle and head to the expensive part of the city. Then you need to drive into a gate and if you do it right the gate will start glitching and then you will find yourself saying hi to the birdies.

Apparently this version is much harder to consistently achieve but as you can see by the last launch in that video the height you can achieve is outstanding.

This is similar to the swing set launch that was so popular in GTA IV.

I’m so going to be trying this out later.

    There is also apparently a glitch where your vehicles and upgrades disappear when you park them in certain garages. Rockstar is aware of the problem and advises people to not use those garages until the bug is fixed.

    I wonder if Bethesda had any hand in the development. HUGE trololololol

      Yip, the helicopter that I used to travel to a mission (who needs cars?) spawned in the underground car port for the next mission, but being the Lemming as I am, BAMMM, WASTED and $5000 later.

    Has anybody got gold for the helicopter in flight school?

    I must admit, not once has anything felt like a chore. FUN is the word that they seemed to base the levels around and what FUN it is.

    20hours in at 40% and only 125AP. I am sure there are people who have already found all of the missing parts around the map.

        YOU ACE, I keep getting thrown off. It is the yaw (tilting forward) that looks like its nose diving but it is the only way to gain speed but then you loose altitude.

        How am I going to fly to the barber if I cant pass flight school? 🙁

          They’re different games, but I enjoyed SR3, SR4 and Sleeping Dogs in much the same way as I’m with GTA 5. I mean I’m not a trophy/achievement nut, but I played so much of the first three that I platinumed them, and chances are I might just do the same with GTA 5.

      I was doing some spring cleaning and found 15 games in a trunk of mine from Varsity days, so I traded them in and whilst there picked up GTA 5.

      I have only played for about 3/4 hours and so far it seems pretty decent, I’m enjoying it more than Red Dead.

      Let’s put it this way, while Last of Us is still my game of the year for 2013, GTA V is exceptional. Even though I finished it over the weekend, I’m still playing friends and freaks missions, paragliding, or just unleashing mayhem and murder with my tank (hehehe I bought a tank for $3 million).

            Hey that’s not true man, I bought Saints row the third because of many people said it was soo good and I was wrong. SR3 was a good game I was wrong, But I still stand by my word, Gta IV in many ways was better game than SR3 (technically)but not as fun as though… In Gta V everything is amazing, and I am not biased just honestly Rockstar hasn’t made a bad game to date… If i am wrong Ill be so gladly..

            Hey Murray
            I’ll give you an unbiased opinion.

            GTA5 is a very good game and I am enjoying it. It is FUN, missions don’t feel like a chore and getting from point A to point B is even entertaining.

            The thing I like least is the swearing, don’t get me wrong I was expecting bad language because this is an R18 game but the swearing is over the top… I will only play with headphones on. Other than that the game is great and I think once GTA online is live it will be even better.

          September 25, 2013 at 10:11

          Criticisms? I guess my biggest bugbear is that while the world is large, not every shop or building is accessible (actually the number of stores that you can use and rob are small – smaller than SR3 for instance). I know that’s a lot to ask for a game like GTA but there’s this massive casino in LS, and for the life of me, I don’t see why I can’t rob the place (or even enjoy a bit of gambling). I also don’t see why I can’t plan heists independently from the main single player story, especially end-game – although Rockstar did hint that with GTA online you should be able to do heists at most places….

          Although, You probably will be able to rob the casino in the future with DLC, but for now as it stands, it’s merely a static placeholder.

          A minor annoyance is that not everything in the world can be used and manipulated. There’s this outdoor gym on the beach, and it would have been awesome to be able to use it. I think in this regard, Sleeping Dogs has GTA beat, purely on how it allowed you more freedom to interact.

          Scale-wise though, GTA 5 is on another level.

            The gym not being used was a let down, I wish they added from Gta SA the ability to get all buff! or at least work out! I haven’t played Sleeping dogs, but I really want to get it esp after what I have seen and heard about the game.

            Sleeping Dogs is like a crazy Kung Fu movie. It’s much smaller in scale, but in hindsight and comparing it to GTA 5 this week, they actually managed to do incredible things.

            Just a pity their publishers are a can of dick cheese, because the world deserves a Sleeping Dogs 2.

    The glitch I found was that after one of the missions you give Lamar some cash, I do not keep cash on me in GTA;
    it’s all invested in stocks. Anyways you give him some cash and my
    total cash, being carried, went into the negative (-$34) – I tried to
    sell stock, so I could buy the weed business and whilst the stock sold
    the amount did not register (I sold $250,000 odd worth of stock), that
    pissed me off. So I robbed a store and got back into the positive and
    did another trade, which worked. Moral of the story do not trade stock
    if you have a negative balance on your person….

    @SaintsRow – Bud, GTA is brilliant, have put in about 45 hours and according to the social club I am at around 55% completion. I could ( and probably will) put in at least another 100 hours easily…

    I am fortunate enough to get most new titles on release and the last 3 that I have really enjoyed where Last of Us, SRow and Tomb Raider.

    Those I sank around 50 hours into each and while I thoroughly enjoyed playing them 50 hours was about my limit…. Compare that to the 150 I will put into GTA 🙂

    Like some have said here before, besides the game being technically brilliant, the story is awesome and the characters relatable……Trevot however must be my firm favorite, he is bat sh!t insane and I find myself laughing out loud at his utter levels of retardation…..

    I don’t think anyone sinking a few rand into this title will be disappointed …
