We all know that cheating and hacks have been rife in GTA 5 but hopefully it will become less of a problem with news that Rockstar have implemented new systems to tackle the problem
An update today on the Rockstar page explains:
“As part of our ongoing commitment to combat cheating and griefing, we have recently implemented new systems to allow us to more efficiently detect and target any players found running mods and cheat programs within GTA Online. As a reminder, any attempt to tamper with the behavior of GTA Online by installing or executing mods, scripts, or other exploits, modifying the game files or manipulating the game in any way while it is executing will result in disciplinary action including but not limited to time in the cheater pool, bans and potential suspension of your account. Please help maintain the integrity of the GTA Online experience by keeping sessions free of modifications and exploits.”
Whether these new systems will be circumvented remains to be seen but take this is a warning if you are running anything that could mess with the game online. Just don’t run any dodgy looking mods if you head online, it’s not worth the ban.
