Here are a few methods you can try to fix the infamous GTA Online error joining a session bug.

GTA Online has been one of the most popular MMOs for the past eight years. While players patiently await GTA 6, Rockstar Games has continued to update GTA V’s online counterpart.

While it has maintained popularity for nearly a decade, it still has bugs that persist. One of the bugs that have plagued GTA Online since the start has been the “error joining session” bug.

Sadly, there isn’t one fix that has worked for everyone. Instead, here is a list of different things you can try to resolve the issue. It’s unknown what causes this bug, but hopefully, the developers will find a more permanent fix.

How to fix GTA Online Error Joining a Session bug

Again, there isn’t a one size fits all fix for the GTA Online error joining a session bug. Instead, this list is a number of different fixes you can try.

One of these should resolve the issue unless GTA Online’s servers are currently offline.

  • Check Rockstar Server Status
    • If the servers are down, you will have to wait until they are brought back online
  • Restart GTA V
  • Restart your PC or Console
  • Make sure your console is up to date
  • Update GTA V/Online
  • Check your internet connection
    • Restart your router
  • Try playing Single Player/Story before switching to Multiplayer
  • Choose Online Play before loading in
  • Disable Antivirus or Firewall on PC

And if none of these fixes resolve the issue, you might just have to wait. Some players reported that doing nothing and coming back to the game later made the error joining a session bug go away.

If you have another fix that doesn’t appear on this list, feel free to let us know!  Reach out via our Charlie INTEL Facebook Page and Charlie INTEL Twitter Page!

GTA 6 discover possible major storyline clue in GTA Online trailer

A few fans have claimed that the latest GTA Online trailer contains a hidden clue about the highly-awaited GTA 6.

There is a ton of speculation regarding the highly-anticipated GTA 6, and a few players may have found a major storyline clue in the latest trailer for GTA Online.

Rockstar Games finally gave the official release date for GTAV’s next-gen console remaster in a new trailer at the PlayStation Showcase 2021. We also got a closer look at GTA Online’s separate multiplayer in the same trailer.

This was disappointing to players who were hoping for an update on the highly-awaited GTA 6. Now, a few fans have claimed that the trailer has a major storyline for the next entry in the popular series.

Reddit user docbicep discussed one small detail about the trailer in the GTA 6 subreddit. They pointed out that there is a car with a yellow license plate containing a possible clue at the 38 seconds timestamp.

The yellow license plate reads: “6ISAL890.” The Redditor stated that this could actually mean “6 is a late 90s,” seemingly confirming the time period in which the next installment is set.

This caused fans to speculate about whether this is an intentional clue left in the trailer by Rockstar Games or simply a coincidence.

One Redditor was certain that this is a proper clue, saying: “It may mean nothing, but don’t think they don’t pay attention to details, I’m sure it means something. They don’t just put random stuff, especially when the license plate stands out like that with the yellow.”

There have been various leaks and rumors suggesting that the game’s map is Vice City in the 80s. However, it’s possible that those leaks might be fake, and the game is actually set in the 90s.

At this point, this is all purely speculation, and we’ll have to wait for Rockstar to announce something official regarding GTA 6. For more GTA, be sure to check out how to get the GTA Online Prize Ride vehicle.

The Los Santos Tuners update allows GTA Online players to take advantage of the new Prize Ride vehicle challenge. Players can scoop a free Jester RR this week, and our quick guide will show you what to do, and how to get one.

The Los Santos Tuners update is certainly up there with the Cayo Perico update in terms of an important content drop for GTA Online. Many players love to earn lots of money, buy cars, mod them how they see fit, and parade them around the city.

As well as adding new cars and collectibles, the new update has also welcomed a fun new challenge for players to complete. GTA Online’s Prize Ride can be obtained by meeting a certain requirement, and we’ll detail everything below.

How to unlock GTA Online’s free Jester RR Los Santos Tuners Prize Ride

GTA Online prize ride challenge

With GTA 6’s 2025 release date being contradicted by an alleged GTA 6 voice actor claiming that the first trailer may be coming, it’s hard to know what to think. Instead, fans are instead eagerly waiting for new details on the GTA Remaster Trilogy supposedly in the works – although that wait could be longer too.

Even the Enhanced and Expanded Remaster has been delayed for the PS5 and Xbox Series X, so Rockstar has stepped up its efforts to make GTA Online even bigger and better, and the Los Santos Tuners update has packed the game with even more content.

The Los Santos Tuners update has cool cut-scenes, meet-ups, and all sorts of content to satisfy car enthusiasts. But if you’re looking to extend your garage’s repertoire of wheels, then you have a chance to add the Jester RR to it – for nothing at all.

To acquire your own Jester RR, you’ll need to place in the top 3 in Street Races for 5 days in a row in GTA Online to complete the Prize Ride challenge.

That’s the simple condition you will need to meet to win a free Jester RR. Given that it normally costs $1,970,000, it’s definitely worth trying to get!

Here’s the official description of the Jester RR:

Experts agree that the world is ending. And other experts agree that the only thing you can do about it is get online and fine tune your consumer choices. Introducing the latest Dinka Jester: the car with the killer smile is back, and this time it’s so deadpan we’re pretty sure it’s not even joking. So stop doomscrolling. You’ve found it.

Lectro Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel Reward

The Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel has put a free Lectro up for grabs for Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel players to try and spin to win this week.

It’s refreshing to see something with two vehicles be the object of affection for a GTA Online update. The Lectro is speedy and mobile and is more than worthy of the $997,500 price tag that it normally retails for.

Here’s the official description of the Lectro:

The aggressive styling and hyper tuned engine make this a bike that’s ready for a fight. Most likely it’ll be fighting the back of a truck or a highway barrier, but that’ll be down to you.
Features KERS Kinetic energy recovery system, which uses the bike’s axle power to generate energy for the hyper cell battery. This power can be delivered to the back wheel via a direct drive brushless motor, giving the bike a hi torque speed boost.

3x & 2x GTA$ & RP and Free Bikes

Players will be able to get a nice helping of 3x GTA$ & RP on the Hasta La Vista Adversary Mode this week.

There is also 2x GTA$ & RP on MC Businesses (Weed, Document, Cash) and Bike Races.
