Taking Aim at GTA Online Cheaters

15543 Comments

 
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.

hacktool2014 and FRIND-67 are making threats to hack and ban members of my crew. FREND-67 was kicked from my crew and they wont let it go. They base their crew on glitches and hacking... its like, why even buy the game, why even play, wheres the fun in cheating and hiding in wall breaches, then going passive when your finally killed.? smh And how can R* spend so much money on this game, yet ppl have the power to corrupt regular players experience, if they are able to ban me then this game isnt worth playing anymore, get some control of these hackers who ruin the game.

I don't which one of these 2 were hackers but they kicked me out of a plane and then kept blowing me up every time I spawned in even when I put myself on passive mode. I sent those guys a message and they said they were using RTM MODD TOOLS . I took a picture of the message too if you would like to see that rockstar. These guys should be banned, here are their psns: HIGH-F1V3-GHOST AND TWELVE-1NCHES

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.
