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.

The January 28 GTA Online update & patch notes have added the Vetir military truck to the game. They are also offering the Cheetah Classic as a podium vehicle, and has plenty of cool discounts and incentives such as 3x GTA$ & RP.

Despite the Cayo Perico Heist now being a few weeks old, Rockstar is still trying to keep the momentum going for as long as possible with the addition of the Vetir truck.

GTA Online is still receiving regular weekly updates full of content and deals. This week will be no different with a smorgasbord of discounts and GTA$ & RP opportunities for you to take advantage of. Plus, there are cheaper legendary vehicles to put in your garage too.

Some of the GTA Online attention has been diverted lately thanks to lots of interesting GTA 6 talk. For instance, some discoveries have been made by die-hard fans including some new GTA 6 patents and strange files in RDR2. But things have escalated even more so with new rumors swirling around that Rockstar has unannounced titles including a Grand Theft Auto Remastered Trilogy.

Until GTA 6 is official, we will remain focused on GTA Online, and our usual GTA Online leaker TezFunz2 has been able to get early info on the new update once more.

Cheetah Classic Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel Reward

The Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel has put a free Cheetah Classic up for grabs for Lucky Wheel enthusiasts.

This tarmac-burning demon would normally cost you the hefty sum of $865,000, so hopefully you get lucky! Here’s the official description of the vehicle:

There’s a kind of charm that only comes with age, and in today’s jaded world nothing’s aged better than the Cheetah Classic. It’s practical, spacious, understated. It oozes red-blooded panache. You open the door, and you catch the smell of brandy and cigars on its breath. It’s eminently respectable, it’s constantly groping its secretary, and it doesn’t even feel the need to pretend it has friends from minority groups. Welcome to the old world.

Is Rockstar working on a Grand Theft Auto Remastered Trilogy?

GTA 6 is the game that every die-hard Rockstar fan is waiting for, but they may also have a GTA Remaster Trilogy hiding up their sleeve too.

Published

gta remaster trilogy

Arguably the most anticipated game in the world right now is the unannounced GTA 6. But a big leak suggests that its delay could be due to a supposed GTA Remaster Trilogy that Rockstar is working on.

There seems to be a new GTA VI rumor each week that points towards a possible reveal for Rockstar’s next open-world extravaganza. We’ve recently covered several stories of this nature including a Rockstar employee having “unannounced titles” on their LinkedIn profile and a possible GTA 6 Super Bowl 55 reveal.

Now some new evidence is suggesting that it’s not only GTA 6 that is in the works. In addition to the next gigantic entry in the acclaimed GTA series, we could also be seeing a reimaging of the three main games from the PS2 era.

GTA 3, GTA Vice City, and GTA San Andreas

The three games that cemented Rockstar’s legacy are all getting the proper remaster treatment if a post on the GTA Forums is to be believed.

Mach1bud is a staff member of the forum and posted the message “Soon” which naturally piqued the interest of many of the members of the forum.

But the intrigue escalated very quickly when this message was posted, “Oh I know very well what forum I should be in and I know that you know that if I were to post these in those forums everyone would begin to know what we know. I’ve wanted this to happen for many years now and I’m glad it’s happening sooner rather than later.”

GTA Vice City

Naturally, the alarm bells started ringing and the message board became rife with rumors. This quote is also further supported by a tweet from @uNiGTANet – an Admin for GTA Forums – who posted a picture of three custom-made Shark Cards.

With closer inspection, you can see that the card numbers contain “2001” “2002” “2004” “2013” and “B46”. The first three numbers represent GTA 3, GTA: Vice City, and GTA: San Andreas. 2013 is the year that GTA 5 came out, and the final three characters can be read out as “before 6” – as in GTA 6.

If it was anyone else who has posted this information then it may be misconstrued as mere fan speculation. But given that it’s coming from admins on the GTA Forums, then it does make you wonder.

If we do get GTA Remasters, will they come out before GTA 6?

Clever trick to destroy Oppressor MK2 trolls in GTA Online

One GTA Online player came up with a neat little trick to counter MKII Oppressor trolls with the Toreador.

New trick to take down the MKII Oppressor in GTA Online

One GTA Online fan has discovered a creative new trick to counter irritating MKII Oppressor trolls with the help of the brand new Toreador vehicle.

There are several different tools and vehicles that you can use to cause mass mayhem when playing GTA Online. The MKII Oppressor, also known as the ‘boom stick’ by some GTA players, is a flying bike that gives players an aerial advantage.

However, they can also be a major source of annoyance as players will use them to repeatedly kill you or destroy your personal vehicles. You’ll often find yourself entering “Passive mode” just to get them off your back.

Luckily, one GTA Online player has discovered a neat little trick that you can use to counter trolls who attack you above, and it involves attacking your opponent with the Toreador.

The MK2 Oppressor in GTA Online

GTA Online Oppressor MK2 trick

Many GTA Online players have come up with different strategies for countering Oppressor MK2 attacks. These methods include using the Mobile Operations Centre truck cab and Nightshark to catch their missiles.

Other strategies have you use a more offensive approach and one player has found a new way to do just that. Reddit user NinjaDragon177 was using their Toreador in a battle against an Oppressor troll and found themselves trapped.

The Redditor waited until their enemy stopped firing missiles before retaliating. They drove off a pile of dirt and flipped upside down before firing their own missiles to take out the Oppressor. The player then landed on the ground in a satisfying way.

This highlight gained a lot of popularity, with many of the commenters praising the Redditor for this creative kill. One of them even called the player an “Ex-Rocket leaguer.”

The MK2 has been a major source of annoyance for GTA Online players, since trolls ruin the game for others, and one commenter even suggested that Rockstar Games should add the option to remove them from a session altogether.

You can also recreate this maneuver if you own a Toreador, but purchasing one will set you back about $3,660,000. It’s not the cheapest option, but the trick does look cool so it’s definitely worth the investment.
