GTA Online – people are losing their assets, and the protagonists grow bald due to error

Numerous GTA players complain on Reddit that their protagonists have somehow lost their possessions – the apartments, vehicles, or weapons. In some cases, the bug causes a change in the character’s appearance.

GTA Online – People Are Losing Their Assets


  • numerous players report that after logging onto GTA Online they’ve lost part of their possessions, such as vehicles, apartments or weapons
  • with no reason, the appearance of some characters also changes
  • the account balance and the character’s level remain the same
  • It’s unknown what causes the problem; the players haven’t found any solution yet.

Numerous Reddit forum users report that after logging onto GTA Online, they’ve lost a bulk of the collected fortune. Various, apparently random items and goods keep disappearing – it’s hard to spot any rule here. Also, it’s uncertain what causes the situation. The victims are usually the PC players, but users of other platforms have also confirmed the problem.

“PC-Steam. I’ve lost everything but the level of the character, money (I’m not sure about the tokens), and my yacht. I still have some basic weapons” ” Sewershagger writes.

“I’ve got the same: PC-Steam. I’ve lost the apartment, office, night club. Terrorbyte (a special lorry), two garages, a helicopter, and my car. Only the money and the character’s level remained”, writes DerSenderchef

Interestingly, some players also report that for unknown reasons, the appearance of their characters, the colors, or other qualities of the possessed items have changed.

“The yacht has changed its color and the country. It only concerns my current character. My female hero has suddenly got big, reddish cheeks. I’ve finished the game in my casino’s apartment, and this casino is my starting point, i.e., the spawn point), but today, for some reason, I’ve appeared at a random point on the map. Ironically, it was in front of the Eugenics Inc.” – describes spintersailor.

Some people report that when attempting a purchase an error pops up: „Transaction failed because inventory or pricedata is invalid”.

“PC-Steam. I’ve lost my assets, all vehicles, and a bulk of weapons for no reason. I tried to buy a garage and received the text: „Transaction failed because inventory or price data is invalid.” Also, my character has started to get bald; I’ve no idea if there’s any connection to that,” writes ScoopySara.

Others notice that the characters affected by the bug cannot acquire new assets (they can make a transaction, but the item is lost after the next login).

“I’ve also lost everything, but I’m starting to understand. Everyone who’s been affected by this problem has the same make-up. We also can’t buy items; our character keeps being reset and replaced by a “temporary” mode, i.e., a placeholder. But, on the Rockstar website, you can check your weapons, meaning our profiles are still saved on the servers. During the login to the game, we’re probably “blocked” and don’t receive the information about our character,” claims David432853

The whole situation reminds me of a much belated Fool’s April prank, but taking all into account, it isn’t one. The users tried different methods to solve the problem (e.g., erasing the game’s cache); however, none of them has been successful so far. The only solution is contacting Rockstar Games customer service, reporting the situation and the lost items, and then waiting with the hope that the developers react quickly enough.
