GTA Online: How to do the new Up-n-Atomizer trick

The Up-n-Atomizer can do some serious damage. But it can also be used for something less destructive. Here’s a neat new trick for it.



The Up-n-Atomizer is one of the most over-the-top weapons in GTA Online because of how powerful it is. You can dish out some serious damage with it equipped but one player has found a creative use for this gun.

GTA Online is filled with endless possibilities for you to explore. As you yourself into the world of Los Santos, you’ll find many different activities to take part int. You can race other players, buy expensive cars, get into dogfights or just cause general mayhem with the wide assortment of weapons available to you.

One cool weapon is the Up-n-Atomizer that is capable of sending anything ranging from people to large vehicles flying away with one blast. Naturally if you own one of these then you’ll be able to cause chaos and destruction on an large scale and one player has found neat new trick with this weapon.

GTA Online New Up-n-Atomizer trick

Reddit user skelatorx7 has discovered that you can use the Up-n-Atomizer to move cars between parking spaces. Now you can already do this GTA Online without too much of a hassle, but the weapon does make it look significantly cooler.

Aim weapon at the car and rather than blasting it away, just give it a little nudge. Instead of sending it flying away, this will flip it perfectly over to the next parking space. You can see this in the clip posted to the GTA Online subreddit below:

The player was able to send their car perfectly from one place to another without wrecking it. This may tempt you to try this for yourself with your own insured vehicle, which is completely understandable. This is also oddly wholesome because it shows a more gentle side to one of the most destructive weapons in the world of GTA Online.

Of course if you’re not careful then this could go horribly wrong, but it’s worth the risk to look cool. Not everyone was able to recreate this perfectly as seen in the comments of the subreddit, so if you do pull it off then it’s even more satisfying.

GTA Online players finding time-saving tricks to perform while playing isn’t exactly surprising. Through experimenting, these people have discovered some fun exploits such as the ability to force a car to spawn right next to them in the game, and many more. These little things make all the difference to speedrunners especially since it lets them skim through mundane tasks.

So if you have the Up-n-Atomizer in your inventory, you’re now know that you can use it for more than one purpose. This is why you should always try letting loose and testing out different things in GTA Online. You never know what fun tricks you’ll discover for yourself.


GTA Trilogy Definitive Edition: Where does Grand Theft Auto III take place?

The GTA Trilogy: Definitive Edition is offering a chance to revisit Vice City and San Andreas, but where is GTA 3 set?

Despite being all-time classics, lots of modern gamers won’t be familiar with the original GTA trilogy of games from the PS2 era. Vice City and San Andreas are self-explanatory, but where is Rockstar’s GTA 3 set?

There is some obvious disappointment that GTA VI still hasn’t been announced yet, despite it being eight years since the ever-successful GTA V was released.

However, Rockstar has curtailed this sadness by developing Grand Theft Auto The Trilogy: Definitive Edition.

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of GTA III, Rockstar has decided to create the most complete makeovers of GTA 3, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas to date. But these games are still quite new to a whole generation, and it’s left many wondering where GTA III is set.

Which city does GTA III take place in?

Some players may be shocked to know that GTA III took place in Liberty City, meaning that Grand Theft Auto IV wasn’t the first GTA game to be set there.

Yes, Rockstar’s first real foray into a 3D, open-world, sandbox design was in the fictional city based on New York.

We don’t know why it was called GTA III and not GTA: Liberty City – in the style of the other trilogy entries in the franchise. Either way, given that the game originally came out in 2001, it’s understandable that lots of current gamers now might not be privy to this knowledge.

When is GTA III set?

There doesn’t seem to be any official lore or information to give an accurate date, but according to multiple sources, and the GTA Fandom Wiki, the third main entry into the series was set in the year of its release – 2001.

GTA III is part of the aforementioned Grand Theft Auto The Trilogy: Definitive Edition, and we’ve had our first look at the game through its debut trailer.

From sunny Vice City and San Andreas to the urban environment of Liberty City, each of these games is looking great in their remastered state.

It seems the developers have not just worked on general graphics, but also atmosphere and weather, as one clip in the trailer shows Claude driving in the rain.

Further, in a scene from San Andreas, CJ is talking to the Grove Street boys, and you can see the improvement in graphics through small details such as shadows and more prominent colors.

As many will know, the GTA Trilogy will be released on all platforms: PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Although the graphics aren’t exactly next-gen, it is great to see these original characters take on a more detailed and fresh look while also retaining their original style and aesthetic.

The Grand Theft Auto series has been one of gaming’s most popular and lucrative series for the best part of two decades – revolutionizing the open-world genre along the way. If leaks are to be believed, a remaster of three of the franchise’s most beloved titles could be on the way.

With GTA V and GTA Online being the runaway successes they are, many players may not have had the chance to go back and explore the series’ roots. Take-Two is reportedly planning to release the GTA Trilogy Remastered in the not too distant future, containing Grand Theft Auto III, Vice City, and San Andreas.

Although GTA V and GTA Online do more than enough to keep players busy, with new updates and vehicles added consistently and even a next-gen port on the horizon, players will be eager to jump back into these three classic games, which helped make the franchise what it is today.

GTA The Trilogy: Definitive Edition officially announced

Rockstar Games announced the GTA Remastered Trilogy on October 8, 2021. The development studio revealed that the collection will be called GTA The Trilogy: Definitive Edition.

When does GTA Trilogy Remastered release?

While the release date is yet to be confirmed, the latest rumors suggest that the digital editions will release before December. The physical PS4, Xbox One, and Switch copies will be released on December 7. The physical PS5 and Xbox Series X|S copies will release in 2022.

The highly-anticipated Trilogy that was officially announced on October 8 was stated to be “coming soon,” so the release date could very well match these leaks.

GTA Remastered Trilogy platforms

Rockstar has revealed that the GTA Remastered Trilogy is set to launch on the following platforms:

  • PS4
  • PS5
  • Nintendo Switch
  • Xbox One
  • Xbox Series X|S
  • PC (Rockstar Games Launcher)
  • Mobile (iOS & Android)

It was also said that the PC and Mobile versions of the GTA Remasters won’t launch until 2022, as Rockstar is focusing on the console ports first. If the latest rumor is correct, the next-gen editions won’t release until 2022 either.

What will change in the GTA Remastered Trilogy?

The most significant update we expect to see in GTA Trilogy Remastered is in the visuals. These games have been around for nearly 20 years, so a large portion of the development time is likely to have been dedicated to giving the graphics and textures a fresh coat of paint within the Unreal Engine.

Although this appears to be a remaster and not a ground-up remake, it remains to be seen how the updated versions will compare with their modern counterparts.

Rockstar confirmed that “The Definitive Edition will feature across-the-board upgrades including graphical improvements and modern gameplay enhancements for all three titles, while still maintaining the classic look and feel of the originals.”

They also said on October 8 that they’ll be revealing more details “in the coming weeks.”

If the rumors are true and the remasters are heading to new platforms later this year, then GTA fans will have plenty to sink their teeth into. The next-gen version of GTA V is also set to drop on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S in March 2022.

We’ll keep you updated with all the latest GTA Trilogy Remastered announcements as they happen, as well as any more information on the long-awaited release of GTA 6.
