GTA Online is under siege by hackers and modders

As a consequence of giving the game Grand Theft Auto V  for free on the Epic Games Store website, Grand Theft Auto Online is experiencing a siege by hackers and modders. It’s not hard to guess that the community is being disappointed.


  • GTA Online is currently experiencing a siege by hackers and modders who make it difficult to play the game.
  • It’s been caused by the fact that Grand Theft Auto V is currently available for free in Epic Games Store.

Grand Theft Auto V Free on Epic Games Store Sparks Online Issues

The possibility of getting Grand Theft Auto V for free until 21 May in Epic Games Store has caused the online mayhem. Theoretically, only a few complaints should be made. Some players are pleased to have another free title in their game collection. Rockstar can proudly observe the next jump in the popularity of its brand, and Epic Games itself celebrates being at the center of attention. However, there’s a group that feels disappointed with it: the Grand Theft Auto Online lovers. From the beginning, some of them had certain doubts that a drastic increase in the number of GTA V owners could result in the decline of the online play mode comfort. And they were right. There are currently reports on the wave of hackers and modders in Grand Theft Auto Online (via Game Rant).

Reddit’s users are talking about odd, modified machines that appear in Grand Theft Auto Online and disrupt the game. Others report that they can’t move after logging in and random characters and vehicles appear above them. Some complaints include a purposeful server load by hackers’ massive use of various items, which causes their ‘crash,’ and gaining the unfair disadvantage of the cheaters.

Although Rockstar may be overwhelmed by such a massive surge in the number of cheaters in Grand Theft Auto Online, it doesn’t mean this fact will be long-lasting. The online mode GTA V is still making loads of money, and a sudden flee of many honest players, frustrated with the presence of hackers and malicious modders, would be pretty painful for both “Rock stars” and the publisher, Take-Two Interactive. Therefore, all possible measures will undoubtedly be undertaken to stabilize the situation as soon as possible.

Let’s remind you that Grand Theft Auto V  has been available on PC since 2015. Until now, the title has been the best-reviewed game released for this platform (via Metacritic), and since its premiere, it ranked highly on the bestseller lists, for instance, on Steam, where, only last week, despite the giveaway in Epic Games Store, it was ranked 8th.
