Do you want to aquire money in GTA Online by illicit means?

Stories

  • GTA Online players have spent the last week raking in millions of dollars by exploiting a simple refund bug. The idea is you call Lester, an NPC Hacker, to locate a plane and that plane should then spawn at a nearby spawn point, allowing you to fly it around without technically stealing it. If the plane fails to appear, Lester refunds his finders fee, but if you sit in your car in an aeroplane hanger and rev the gas pedel, the game can't spawn the plane and keeps refunding you money, to the order of $2000 every 2.4 seconds.
  • Weezer is being added to Fortnite.
  • The Resident Evil 2 Remake has been fertile ground for modders. One of the most popular is playing back DMXs "X Gonna Give It To Ya" whenever Mr X makes an appearance. A new mod inserts Thomas the Tank Engine as Mr X, complete with chuff-chuff-chuff when he is near, scaled to fit in the game.
  • It's no secret that Anthem has taken a lot of pages out of the Destiny playbook, but unfortunately they weren't super picky about which ones they grabbed.But luckily for players, Bioware has introduced a series of changes to Anthem's loot systemm aimed at making the game a little less of a grind. Starting now, common and uncommon loot will not drop from end-game activities, you'll have to grind less materials to make masterwork items, and the inscriptions (the special name for the random stat boosts that are added to weapons and equipment) will now be item specific. THis means no more grinding for a legendary assault rifle, only to get an inscription on it that gives a 12% damage boost to machine-pistols.
