GTA Online gained new anti-cheat changes this week which also crashed player’s games according to Rockstar Games insider Tez2. In a fairly uneventful week in GTA Online, Rockstar has reportedly implemented some tweaks to the anti-cheat found in the PC version of GTA Online.
Fans logging into GTA Online to check out the latest Event Week (which you can read about here) had noticed their game “frequently crashing” which was caused by the anti-cheat changes according to Tez.
A swift resolution
Thankfully Rockstar Games released updates via the tunable system to fix these crashes on the PC version of Grand Theft Auto Online. Fans will no longer suffer from crashes caused by recent anti-cheat changes.
Other recent hacking situations
PC hackers are still rampant based on the experiences of players. It was just two months ago a fake bounty worth $-99999999 could be placed on you. We reported on the issue here. Luckily Rockstar Games were able to fix it relatively quick.
However back in December, hackers were able to ban and corrupt anyone’s GTAO account and ruin the game for so many. This exploit took the cake as the most impactful on the gaming experience in Los Santos. Roughly about one week later, Rockstar Games released a patch to GTA V and GTA Online to block this attack on the game. Any player who did unfortunately suffer account data corruption could contact Rockstar Games Support and they reinstated everything again.
Although cheating in games is an ever long and advancing arms race, we hope GTA Online can continue to gain security improvements to help stop the game from being affected by bad actors.
