Taking Aim at GTA Online Cheaters


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.

BUDBANGER187 keeps messaging me because he's upset over the fact that i shot him down while he's flying around in a jet trying to kill me. He claims I was in a glitch but I was under neath the bridge. I don't understand all the sore loosers that get upset because they get killed once. If I was in a glitch I would have been killing him over and over.

@CaRnAgE2236 So your upset because you didn't get gta money?


xanelf June 23, 2015

a couple days ago I was having some fun driving around with some guys and we stopped we got out and money bags started appearing over my head i was supprised about it after a little bit when i realized what happened i moved to another session i think it was about 200,000 gta$ maybe a little over i have not added it to my bank money i just left it on my character so it wouldn't get mixed together.

I was in a server and I was driving my Insurgent. Then a hacker with his friend -hacker too- came to me with a military helicopter and killed me. I tried many times to kill them with the rocket launcher or with the minigun but nothing happened. They killed me about 10 times until I told them that I will report them. Then one of them gived me about 20mil to not report them. Please Rockstar do something hackers are ruining the game of legitimate people and also with their actions put normal players in danger of getting banned.


DaveMcBeard June 21, 2015

Dear Rockstar,

H4ness June 20, 2015
