GTA V – Money Glitcher’s Getting Banned

Xbox 360

GTA-Online

Although I have long left the days of Xbox 360 and GTA V behind until I will get my ass in gear and devote a decent playthrough on the upcoming Xbox One version – it has been reported that Rockstar Games are cracking down on money launderers in-game, otherwise known as those who have found exploits to cheat a few million dollars!

According to LatinTimes, several prominent GTA 5 YouTubers over the weekend have faced bans by showing various methods to obtain unlimited money in videos. As YouTube videos are often the viral source for money leaks and cheats, Rockstar Games has allegedly banned well-known GTA 5 YouTubers: LispyJimmy, Dynasty, Sernando, Sir Weed, and Glitch Master, for sharing the exploits.

Another popular Youtuber, DomisLive claims that Rockstar Games have undercover agents moderating the lobbies to catch cheaters in the act, but are not only banning IP addresses – your Xbox Live Account too!

Cheating and exploiting on Xbox Live is against the Xbox Code of Conduct and Terms of Use. If you have recently been looting your GTA wallet with mass amounts of cash… play safe and don’t be alarmed if you suddenly become unable to connect to Xbox LIVE!

    Don’t cheat then, problem solved.

  • Anything to sell those shark cards.

  • Maybe they shouldn’t cheat us.

  • Michael

    Why would you even bother banning IP addresses. Anyone with any form of common sense can overcome this issue. If anything, people are going to change their IP addresses, make a new account then resume to cheating. Furthermore R* are hardly in any position to be dishing out bans given the lack of effort put into the testing phase and the game mechanics itself.

    Maybe if we could actually make money through the heists that were supposed to come out in November, then December, then Spring, now “to be announced” again

    Fuck Rockstar, I would be earning money legitimately if it was a real option, but you can do 17 races and blow 100% of that money on a single paint job. They want you to by shark cards, but fuck them, if I want to get money without doing any work I’ll be glitching

  • Patrick

    Lol you bought their game and you think that cheating is payback? Grow up.

  • Steve

    Get over the heists and play. The players that are in a tizzy over heists will tear through them as soon as they’re out and then be hungry for more. Heists have been so pumped up that the minute they are out, the online community’s head, will probably explode. I’m a whale shark but I have a job. I support Rockstar and have been impressed by their latest iteration of one their best titles. Cheaters and foul players suck, that’s the end of it. Within time those buildings which are under construction through Los Santos may be completed and others destroyed. By “dynamic” in terms on online it is no longer static, they said that at release. Any prior GTA title was constructed in a manner in which it was decided best to leave static.
    What is so exciting about GTA V, still? Rockstar has managed to create a professional industry leading exclusive game engine in which they have years of experience with, they have consistency and they work. Since our physical world in it entirety cannot be fully implemented into any game with current hardware limitations, each game must be balanced in content or how it is displayed as the player moves.
    I don’t know many other games that use Natural motion as well as GTA V, even the materials have more variables involved since clothes get wet and mud can get slug up on your ride. Its really an amazing game that has been slightly misunderstood, I urge the shunning to revisit V take their time and begin to understand how to enjoy the game. To any that still deny it, I hope the PC V gets you.

  • Steve

    Oh yea and what, you think they just going let you cheat? Have we learned nothing from online gaming?

  • I bought their game expecting it to contain all the features that were advertised. I bought their game expecting it to function without freezing up all the time. I bought their game expecting it to be fun instead of a grind. As long as you accept the unacceptable, people will continue to sell you the unacceptable. .

  • Retro’d

    We’re never going to see Campaign DLC.

  • Not only have Rockstar employees infiltrated online supposedly looking for cheaters, they are also here singing the praise of their rotten, broken, unfinished game.

  • God forbid we have some fun without spending a fortune on shark cards. We shouldn’t have to cheat and we shouldn’t have to buy shark cards to have fun with this game, but you have to do one or the other. Most of you elected to cheat (good for you), and that’s got R* in a tizzy.

  • JBrown

    you are stupid

  • JBrown

    What crappy game company do you work for?

  • JBrown

    This is something I am waiting for. I love GTA O, but need more SP

  • JBrown

    Do you work for 2k?

  • JBrown

    ^^^ “Upset” 2k employee ^^^

  • Patrick

    What features that were advertised aren’t in the game?

  • Wally world

    Are you serious? This is why Rockstar gets away with all this shit.

  • Adam James Fletcher

    It’s ironic that they release a game based on a group of characters whose sole purpose is to “lie, cheat and steal” then they act surprised and crack down when the people playing the game learn to lie, cheat and steal to make more money… I ask you, what’s the point of it all, then?

  • Maverick

    I’m about level 40 now… and I cant do anything fun. They’re is almost no cash flowing through the game, and I have to sit and grind the same mission (coveted, a titan of a job, etc.) to do anything. Totally worthless.

  • Were you born yesterday? Or you just that out of touch with reality?

  • You do realize that 2k is owned by the same people who own Rockstar? No, I don’t work for any of 2k or Rockstar or Take-Two Interactive or any other video game company.

  • Brilliant retort. It’s going to take me some time to think of a suitable response.

  • Patrick

    Heists? You’re sore about that? They give us free DLC’s for f*ck sake.
    If heists were released on day 1, people like you would have been disappointed. They are improving them. Sure, I don’t like how long it’s taking. I don’t like how they won’t tell us anything. But that is no excuse to exploit money glitches for your own greed.

  • Patrick

    Ohhhh you poor wittle thing!

  • Patrick

    “oh heists are delayed yeah f*ck rockstar i can do what i want. it’s not like they give me free DLC’s or anything. it’s not like they are trying to improve heists. they delayed them to make me feel sad. So im gonna exploit glitches now and ruin the game for myself! thanks a lot rockstar!”

    1) Stop using heists and cash cards as an excuse to exploit money glitches.
    2) Nobody is forcing you to buy cash cards. It’s not like they constantly advertise them or anything. They are just convenient to players that have money to spend and want some GTA cash.
    3) Rockstar NEVER promised heists. You paid for what they DID promise.
    4) Stop bitching. Heists will come and you’ll thank them for delaying it.

  • JBrown

    ^^^ Angry 2k Employee ^^^^

  • The “free” updates are anything but free. As I’ve told others, patience is waiting a month or two for a promised feature. Stupidity is waiting a year and still getting nothing but lies.

    “…they didn’t even say there were going to be heists on release…” Yes they did, in their final trailer before release. If you actually believe what you are saying, you deserve to be ripped off by Rockstar and everybody else on the planet.

  • I know the Rockstar PR folks have infiltrated these comment sections, but I ain’t one of them. I suspect you probably are.

  • Patrick is a frustrated Rockstar employee. They stuck some of their employees on PR duty to try to counter the increasing tide of negativity about GTA Online. Patrick hates his job because he nobody believes his BS.

  • Patrick

    Free updates are free, dude. It doesn’t cost you to wait a little bit for a free DLC. And you say the monster truck was promised? The new supercars were promised? WRONG.
    They are giving us features that ARE NOT promised.

    Watch the trailer. Look at how the narrator says “tackle a heist, or rob a liquor store”.
    Wouldn’t you want heists to be something better than (what looked like) an un-customizable Job? I’m glad they delayed it, if that means it will be better than what was shown.
    Believe what you want, just know that they aren’t trying to rip you off. They want you to have fun.
    Maybe you should try heists in real life in the mean time. Or buy Payday 2 and play with friends.

  • Patrick

    If you believe that, I can no longer take you seriously.
    “grr im mad because a game company is improving a feature and i need heists to survive! wow they ripped me off. im gonna go exploit glitches because of it!”
    Good bye you fucking moron.

  • JBrown

    awww ^^^ 2k employee get mad! Why you mad, 2k employee? ^^^^

  • “They want you to have fun.” No, they want to sell shark cards. The entire game is designed around selling shark cards. You are a gullible fool if you don’t see it.

  • Patrick

    Micro-transactions are just a way for R* to get money from their generous free DLC’s.

    “The entire game is designed around selling shark cards.”

    Nope. If that were true, then they would have forced you to buy shark cards as an annual payment (or something).

  • JBrown

    So you think you should be able to do in real life what you do on a video game? Wow, the average American is getting dumber and dumber.

  • JBrown

    play survivals and get $30,000, or you could go cry to your mom that the game company is no good but you still want to play their game so they should change so you can feel good about yourself.

  • JBrown

    I make a million in a week easy just doing jobs. Stop crying. I hope they ban you. You are what is wrong with the states. Are you on welfare?

  • JBrown

    Ya, they made a billion already and feel bad about it. lmao, kill yourself.

  • JBrown

    Play a different game. Problem solved.

  • JBrown

    If you aren’t having fun, then play a different game. Problem solved. You sure seem like a welfare addict.

  • JBrown

    Ya, they made such a terrible game that they have already made over a billion. I bet they feel really terrible about that. lmao play a different game or kill yourself.

  • JBrown

    Play a different game. Problem solved.

  • JBrown

    Cheated you by making the game that you obviously like so much that you are going around to news sites and trolling the stories. You are a pathetic loser.

  • JBrown

    Says the guy that hates the game so much that he can’t stop playing it and must cry on news sites about how he wanted 2000029029209 grains of sand on the beach instead of 2000029029208. I can tell you really “hate” this game. lmao You are either completely retarded or a 2k employee (maybe both?)

  • I haven’t played for a while now. I’m enjoying Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2014 for a bit of a change of pace. Bought it used from Gamestop.

  • JBrown

    cool, sounds like you just cry all the time. If GTA is such a bad game, trade it in.

  • Adam James Fletcher

    Your point is made clear in your own response, considering in my rebuttal I said, “people playing the game”. This implies that within the confines of the video game world, they choose alternative means to generate income. This is a far cry from actually robbing a bank at gunpoint, but it would appear your nearsightedness has not offered you the ability to see the actual point that lay so far beyond you. Let me simplify it for you: Your response is of the mentality that is actually causing the problem here. By making a game ultra-realistic, you open it up to “Real-world” problems. I’m not condoning it, either. You honestly think my point is in favour of people ripping off Rockstar and belittling the honest player out there? Again, you missed the point. I’m clearly saying that we shouldn’t be surprised that people are learning to cheat the system when the game teaches and promotes you to abuse that very system. So, JBrown, I agree with you: The average American is getting dumber and dumber. Look in the mirror. Oh yeah, I forgot to add: I am Canadian.

  • JBrown

    You can’t split the real world from the imaginary world. It looks like Canada fails as well. Most Canadians I know are complete fools.

  • JBrown

    Actually, it is exactly real-world theft because of the shark cards. I am sour that your nearsighteness has not offered you the ability to see the actual point that lay so far beyond you. Your response is of the mentality that is actually causing the problem here.

  • Adam James Fletcher

    Your unable to formulate an intelligent riposte so you attack my nationality? That sounds familiar. I also see your comment below as you struggle to regain some semblance of dignity. I’ll allow you to maintain that shred by ignoring it so you might continue on your blissful, hopelessly naive existence thinking you’ve got it all figured out.

  • JBrown

    All you can use is strawmans and bad grammar.

    You are still in high school, aren’t you?
