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.
