Right Tomass, cut your crap! The reason we're complaining is because we actually have a pair and like to earn our money competitively - That is the whole point of the game. However cowardly glitch seekers don't see that way and have turned it into a noob-fest. Also, Rockstar could move to ban people who have inherited from this glitch so it's a legitimate concern. You are the one who sounds like a kid because you clearly haven't the brains to grasp what problems this new glitch has caused, so leave the debate to the grownups.


Your funny...what are u one of those people in real life say oh no i don't wanna be rich id rather just work for my money ha get a life ...and rockstar can't band people there's just that bad sport lobby u go to when u blow up to many cars open yours eyes ...its like nintendo banning you jumping from world 4 to 8 in super Mario lol

And you think that's a bad attitude? Wow, you're going to go far in life little man :P It's nothing like that at all, the problem is that now any noob can go and buy a tank; It takes away the element of competition and the fundamental point of the game - To make money! Plus people have been receiving one-week bans already for exploiting the glitch so we'll see what happens.


Ha lil man im probably old enough to be your dad ...only youngsters like yourself whine about games if your gonna do that then u might as well retire your console

Only youngsters constantly abbreviate and very rarely use capital letters or punctuation. Only youngsters don't find a problem with people getting more money than could possibly be needed.

I'm thirteen, for god's sake. -_-


Since last patch (maybe 2), every time I call Lamar to send out a mugger, it states I do not have enough cash and prompts me to go get a Shark card.

Some of my friends/crew also experiencing.

Each time, I have had more than enough funds 'on-hand' (in wallet, taken out of bank).
Have already tried all the standard troubleshooting (clearing cache, restarting, etc.)
This has been consistent throughout all game sessions on multiple days since patch.


After this update, I have encountered a GLITCH with hair. When scrolling through to get a new cut, the 'close shave' style (bald) has corn rows tattoo onto it. You cannot remove these annoying cornrow marks from your head in anyway. Tried showering, changing hairstyle, removing my hair with the mask glitch, getting, and removing actual face tattoos, but still, nothing worked. Please fix this in 1.09, and add some new clothing options while you're at it :)


@Fish613 Still no option to mute players during a mission/job?!?!?

Do what I do - drive yourself to the nearest Amm-U-Nation and throw a punch in the store. The shopkeeper shoots you. I had to do this when the players I'd been teamed with blew up my car and then kicked me from their vehicle in the middle of nowhere and drove off.


Please help R* people are now modding with DNS servers and I got in game with mods and now I am stuck with them. HELP!


how about fixing the mechanic delivery system all together?... 90% of the time he doesnt deliver my car then i go to call him again and it says i just had a car delivered and have to wait 3 is the point of the delivery system if it never r* this game is still ----- two months later...


Rockstar someone gave me a billion dollar his name is ben the simp please ban him and take the money out of my acount my gamer tag is justdoit201


Maybe you should've fixed the catchup on races. I was in first and my engine basically went into second gear on the second last checkpoint. So I had to settle for third after been overtaken by op slipstreaming. There is barely anything fun about this game.


Lost two levels with the new patch. No clue why. Anyone else get stuck with something similar? I lost all my strength with the 1.05 patch. Wonder if it is something similar.


I EARNED my billion dollar bounty's Rockstar stole from me . Frankly, I am NOT a hacker nor do I appreciated being slandered as one. When I was playing grand theft auto 4. I witness the most hacking ever, and fell victim to it. I had my internet shut off, my xbox frozen, and my online character launch into the air, go up in flames, and blown up several times. All were done using mods that I found out Rockstar created! Let me get to my point, I may have cheated( Car sale exploit), but nowhere near to the severity to where I deserve a punished for an outstanding thirty days, it's bogus. For what I did, my time should be no more than five days at the most. Seeing how I stopped and was earning my wages legit , I shouldn't be in there at all. So how did I get a high number of 2,500,000,945 in my bank roll? Doing my daily bounty hunting, which my crew does. Me and a friend Russia VTA was invited to a lobby by someone named et Eclipse. Thinking it was just another lobby, and getting sick of being trolling and shot every two minutes, we joined. Once in that lobby an insane bounty of one billion, nine-hundred, twenty four dollars was set on me. Giving my excitement in thinking that it was Rockstar, I told my friend to hurry up, seize it, and vice-versa, if it happens to him. Of course, two seconds later the same was put on him and to another person, who's bounty I fought multiple people to seize. However, to my shock, I realized it was by et Eclipze( A REAL HACKER!). Not trying to get froze out or have any of the original problems hackers on GTA4 gave me, I stayed quite, cause I knew rockstar would NOT have my back( which I was RIGHT). I earned my money for that bounty. Your game prompted me to hunt for it , I did , and the money was mine. Two days after an ugly, huge, stupid dunce cap, was on my head and I was livid to this day. Then you guys send me an Email about the wrongful action you took against me, saying I'm a cheater. I've changed my ways a longtime ago, but where in the code of your conducts does it say" You do not have the right to claim a bounty for a certain amount of money."? Nowhere! cause you can and it's bogus you put me in here. I want out of this stupid lobby, I no longer deserve to be in it, and worked my butt off to get to the rank I am legit( 91). I work and I'm a student of engineering and psychology, I don't have time for Rockstar's" PUNISHMENT TACTICS" , I would whether get rid of this game and not by any of rockstars future games, like the rest of the wrongly accused. I came to you clean about my gaming, and apologized for it. However, as the money in Grand theft Auto is nothing but code, I've paid REAL MONEY to purchase this game and to keep my online services. I've been hunting down hackers since ever since gta4. Including, another named "mexican4life", who gave me two-hundred, million dollars after I was put into "Cheaters" lobby. Take that money, and take me and my friend out of cheater's lobby. However, as for the bounty's me and my friend Russia VTA earned, we should at least be allowed to keep fifty percent if not all of that, just for the fact that we did not SET the bounty, but EARNED and COLLECTED it, which we have the RIGHT to do! Food for thought: Maybe add a code warning that a billion or million dollar bounty is not legit and would have consequence if captured? Including, another line of code that traps the Hacker that set it, and throws he/she into the Cheat Lobby instead of those who follow the rules of GTA and go after it. This would actually save ya'll and innocent, hard working gamers like myself loads of trouble. Instead of just punishing everyone and calling it a night, as if this is a free service. Maybe for an employee of rockstar your gaming is free, mine is not! Also, let people earn more money in missions! Ya'll have a bad habit of making money earning really unfair in GTA5. No one has the time to put hours into a game, to only make 75% of a cost for a Benefactor Surano, which cost well above two-hundred thousand dollars. I don't even have that kind of time to put into my college studies, so I can actually afford a real 2013 Jaguar type S. In conclusion, I want out now. I came clean for something I've actually done, I've been in here for five days, which should be enough. Honestly, there is people who is free, who do not deserve to be right now. If your so-called "way" was so rightfully efficient, I would be playing the game with friends and not messaging you right now. Please take what I said into consideration, for it is 100% honest which I'm sure no one else has been. Including that I'm asking you guys to remove me from the Cheater lobby legitimately and not illegitimately. Please get this message and reply as soon as possible.


@iainspad I actually think this is a really interesting update and I'm looking forward to more. While what I'm going to say doesn't matter at all, here's what I think:

1.The problem is MOST tank drivers are griefers. And it more or less gives griefers a golden key for griefing seeing as if you attempt to stop them, you get punished for it. You can leave the lobby, but its the principle of the thing.

  1. North Yankton was an exploit that did absolutely no harm to the game. Serious exploits like money hacks and instant RP make sense to patch, but a glitch that brings you to a glitched part of the map that does no harm whatsoever somehow is WORSE that those?

  2. The ratloader was a pretty cool car and tons of people spent thousands on it with no reimbursement whatsoever and for pretty crappy reasons. You do not care about this however as you clearly admitted to never driving one.

  3. Patch notes are SUPPOSED to mention stuff like this. If it doesn't mention this stuff then it means they either aren't doing anything about it or they aren't doing anything about it well. Considering the other useless hacks they mention fixing, it's probably the former.

  4. Theres nothing wrong for cash drops and RP drops in terms of challenge, but its the fact that they KEEP doing it. Soon, winning ten waves of survival probably will barley tick the RP size.


You guys think you could maybe ban the hackers and remove the characters of people who were given money and abused it in the first place?


After install Patch 1.08 during Merrywheater there's no Mission i can play. After Merrywheater i play 5 ingame days, but theres no new Mission. I buy before Merrywheater 3 Masks, Overalls. In german The next mission called Blitzkrieg, but theres not coming. Anybody idea. Sorry for my english, my School is 15 years ago and I'm german


" Players in Tanks now have more protection from other players attempting to deliberately give them a Bad Sport rating."

You broke this. Players in tanks can now destroy other players personal vehicles either by driving into them or shooting them with the tank gun and they receive no penalty.

Players in tanks should get bad sport if they blow up personal vehicles!


You forgot to mention : HACKERS EVERYWHERE !! And we can't stop them....
Who the F* cares about content when the game is so broken it's hard to have fun anymore.....
