Taking Aim at GTA Online Cheaters

Posted on January 16 2014, 7:00am | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games, Support
 
Update Jan 16 – Please note that today’s maintenance has now been completed and Grand Theft Auto Online is back up and running. Thanks again everyone for your patience.
 
In recent weeks, a small number of Grand Theft Auto Online players sought to exploit the game by generating and distributing game-breaking amounts of in-game cash, disrupting the experience for other players.(Updated)
 
We will continue to issue title updates on an ongoing basis to counter the negative impact this has had on gameplay, and as part of today’s maintenance period, we are removing the counterfeit GTA$ from the game's economy. Anyone who innocently received GTA$ as a result of these exploits but did not engage in cheating to acquire it will not face any further action - the funds will just be removed, and you'll be able to keep any items you currently own.
 
Those who actively engaged in cheating and exploiting the game in this manner will, however, be subject to in-game penalties at our discretion. This may include being placed in isolated cheater pools or banned from GTA Online altogether.
 
Should you ever encounter someone in GTA Online that appears to be taking advantage of exploits in your session, we ask that you alert us directly via the in-game reporting functionality. In the Pause menu, under the Online tab, select Players and scroll to the offending player. From there, select Report and choose Exploits from the violation options.
 
We're grateful for the community's continued support in dealing with these issues and once again apologize to anyone that has had their Grand Theft Auto Online experience sullied by these exploits that broke the game's natural flow. Please stay tuned for lots more news about GTA Online in the weeks ahead.

    DEMONPENGUIN14 and bizzy_bon3e are using the god mode glitch and setting custom bounties. Should have k/d ratio reset because they are just trolling in free mode.

      I think that players should be banned for life with their IP address for using god mode and invincible car. Also I think that people should not get to come back in with a DUNCE hat, also still using glitches and g mod. so we pay for our internet and the game and xbox live. so they should pay for their mistakes....

        there is a guy that has a j tag xbox 360. he is using god mode and sexual harassment to my wife who has a profile on gta 5 online. he keeps saying he going to hack and harass me. His name is xTz RGH Account .. He went from a level 400 to 485 in 30 minutes. Can anyone tell me how this keeps happening? How it is allowed to be going on. this issue is supposed to be fixed. its not fair to the community that there are cheaters online that you can not kill. They should be banned also for the invincible car glitch too. So his name is again xTz RGH Account with a J TAG XBOX 360.....

            Rockstar Team, please we need a fix to this god mod glitch, I dont think is fair you guys have not fix it yet since game release. There is a new one after patch 1.16 that involves the strip club if I am correct. We need you guys to patch it to have a better gta5 gaming community. I was thinking in support you guys with buying sharkcards but I cant if i am gonna keep getting killed by random people using these glitches. Please ban youtubers also, like this guy " Swifterrs" here is the link to his channel

            He is always posting glitches for invincibility and money. Ty for your time.

              @kaorukamiya Yes, I think that the g mod glitch should be fixed also. The ones that return with a dunce cap, and still doing it. We should all come together somehow and have a petition online to do so with these people.

            So many god mode glitches. I'm pretty much done with this game. This is just too ridiculous. The god mode glitch has been around for too long and it's still not fixed. I could write a novel with all the names of the god mode players but what's the point. I highly doubt any of the people mentioned in the comments have been reviewed. And it's sad that reporting people feels useless, I might actually believe that reporting makes a difference if I say the amount of god mode glitches going down but I don't.
