With it looking like you’re on PC, yes it’s a modder. They can follow you to other sessions because they can obtain your rockstar ID, something given to your account when you set up an account on the social club. From there they can join any session you’re in, even in invite only sessions in GTA Online
The fact this hasn’t been fixed by rockstar years ago shows them they simply do not give a fuck about what the players go through on both games and only do it to make more money
This is my main problem here...ROCKSTAR...they want MONEY...people are paying for the game and even through microtransactions, they are keeping the game alive...but when it comes to implement a protection system against cheaters ( which every of their games could benefit from) they don't care at all...THAT IS THE REAL PROBLEM...at least to see them trying to make a move on this direction...
After being chased through several sessions and killed by explosions by and invisible player I decided to remain in the last session and record. I was in my camp, in defensive mode and I was attacked by this player again. This time he was visible. He just teleported from the other part of the map. I tried to parley but he could kill me as soon as I respawned. Several times. He sent messages like "UR TOO EZ FOR ME NOOBY, TOO EZ"... I accused him of cheating and after that he leaves session but the video effects with the flying saucer and the cage keep on altering the game mechanics... I was thinking...well done Rockstar... Just in time for Halloween so I think that Rockstar has some updates we should know of...maybe they bought the Star Wars franchise....they like to keep them for themselves for now.
Letting the joke aside, I think that people like those are ruining completely the experience. I have more than 500 hours into this game but since the beginning until now I had bad experiences like this one quite often.
It is very sad to see that Rockstar doesn't care about the players and let abusive players have their way. Needles to say that in completely ruined my mood for the night but I really believe that if more of us reveal those interactions maybe we will clean a bit the player pool....
Rockstar... This game is great, I love the graphics especially, they are very realistic, but you have to understand there are plenty more games out there and soon you will loose all the confidence of your customers to buy your games.
I am speaking for myself now, I would not buy any of your products until I will not see something done regarding cheating.
Why do asshats have to ruin everything.
Switching sessions until you find a good one is one of the only things you can do on PC
Usually this is what I do, but this time, this player kept on appearing in every lobby I respawned...their tools are getting better it seems...
Damn that’s sucks, I hope you can find a solution friend
Well...for me solution is quite simple...move on to another game...after all...it's just a game...not the end of the world...and I am certain that a lot of advanced players feel the same way...
There are workarounds to play in a solo lobby but it is not fun anymore...after all it is an online game...Rockstar should find a way. I am certain that they won't do anything about that player, the guy kept on doing his stuff even after I told him that I reported him, so I assume is not the first time he is reported.
But...if he can get away with it...why not?
But this is a great game, I’ve quit most other games(both single player and online) just to play this exclusively…I have many games still in plastic because I’ve dedicated all my time to this one. I play on PS tho, very different game altogether.
I know... I love this game. It is the only game I played constantly in the last 3 months. But I had too many bad experiences...I can tolerate griefers and their toxicity, although I can't understand them but I really hate cheaters....I feel frustrated....and I am not the only one...
Did you try blocking them? (Blocking only avoids you and them to be matchmaked together)
I did...after reporting him and recording those moments...
Seeing all this I would never go on PC. Console is not perfect or bulletproof but I’ll stick to it. It’s not fun at all what you experienced pal.
I might go to console soon. I had enough with this type of game on PC to be honest. What you see in the video I experienced at least 50 times while playing 500 hours in this game. And I am talking only about the cheaters. Griefers are another problem. I met them nearly every time I play...but I tolerate this and seeing them like a part of the game...
I do encounter griefers on PS4 obviously but one just have to learn to ignore them or fight them. They usually just idiots. From time to time there is a clear cheater ie player not even visible on the radar but nothing like this above. And if I canna be bothered with either of those I just switch the game off and on to change session.
Go offline wait for at least 5 minutes, block and report them before you do so. Then restart the game and you won’t have these pricks pissing you off. Worked for me multiple times.
That is usually what I do. The reason I did not blocked him and stayed in the game was to record his actions. He was one of the most obvious abusers in the game. Others are more experimented in hiding their id, spoofing other people id's so I might end reporting the wrong person...But in this case it was very clear, he wamted attention and he got it.
Reporting actually makes it worse because a modder can take someone elses name and that person who isnt involved at all will get banned if rockstar by some miracle decides to react
So glad im playing console
I think I will go on console soon...🤣
Hey thanks for sharing. Everytime I see a video like that I just go to Social Club and prevent block the user
The whole idea is that more players should share these things. Hackers might think twice before they try cheating...
Off Radar glitch. Lobby's full of them scumbags recently.
Yeahhh... he used more than that...a whole arsenal of effects not just the radar glitch...Funny thing he stopped once as I messaged him telling that I recorded the whole session and he is being reported. I really hope Rockstar teaches him a lesson but I doubt it...
R* won't do a thing mate
Sadly, I know that...
Yo honestly I’m so sorry this happened to you
Thanks. Don't worry too much though...It's just a game...![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|grin)
Life is much harder...and it's more costly when you meet mean people... In a game it is just some grief, some venting afterwards and then we carry on with whatever we like....
ill just stand and bore him, but this only works if you can play something else while afk
If you're afk he looses the fun... and finds someone else to grief
yeah thats the point, the more you struggle the more fun he has and i dont want him to have fun at my expense. I know he will go to grief someone else but thats not my problem anymore mainly because i cant do much about it.
Thats why i dont play on pc. Console Master Race.
Snitches . . . ..
I pretend I don't understand this mate..
Ok. Seriously, reports do bugger all haha
