How to force a car to spawn next to you in GTA Online

GTA Online players have found a simple tactic that makes a car spawn next to them.

Published

on

Grand Theft Auto Online players can call their personal vehicles at any time but at the risk of them getting destroyed before reaching them. This simple trick forces the car to spawn next to you.

The world of GTA Online has a lot for you to do. You can rob stores, battle other players, take part in events, collect bounties, or just drive around and hope nobody blows you up. The biggest gameplay mechanic, however, is in the name of the game.

Most Grand Theft Auto activities require the use of vehicles, and you can own several different kinds of cars in Los Santos through either theft or more legal means. When it comes to vehicles that cost 100k or more, you will have to purchase them to keep them.

You can spawn any car that you own by contacting the mechanic. Your Personal Vehicle will then arrive near your current location, as long as you’re near a road. However, this can prove troublesome as you’ll still have to run to your car and hope that other players don’t blow it up or kill you before you can reach it.

Luckily, many players have found a quick way to make the car spawn right next to them. When calling the mechanic, you need to walk in the direction you want the car, then move the camera to in front of your character. The car will spawn in front of you, and you will be able to see it when you bring the camera back behind you.

The trick is to look away from where you want the vehicle to spawn. Alternatively, you can also go into first-person mode and look straight down at the ground. This method is effective most of the time, and you can get it to spawn the way you’re looking if there is a dip in the road.

You don’t need to do this for every vehicle, however. The Oppressor MK2 is one of the most powerful vehicles in the game and it automatically spawns right next to you if you use the MC feature. For more standard cars though, you’ll significantly increase your rate of survival by using this trick to spawn your car closeby.

Free Kosatka Submarine Sonar Station

The Cayo Perico Heist was a substantial update for GTA Online and added lots of new content to the game. One of the most significant items that came with it was the Kosatka Submarine.

Primarily used for planning the Heist itself, the Kosatka is a cool vehicle to own and it has lots of expensive upgrades to improve its capabilities. One of those improvements is the Sonar Station that can be used to find Treasure Chests in GTA Online.

If you were to buy this normally, it would put a hole in your wallet as it costs $1.2 million. So getting it for free feels like a no-brainer.

Free Osiris supercar

The Osiris is an incredible supercar that usually retails for the large sum of $1,900,000 in GTA Online.

You can get it now with 80% knocked off of its price. Meaning you’ll only have to pay $380,000 to own it.

Here’s the official description of this road demon:

Osiris drivers boast the shortest average life expectancy of any consumer demographic of America. They live, briefly, in a world of bygone opulence and hyper-modern engineering. The 0.3 seconds between leaving the showroom and arriving at their first corner are the most exhilarating blur in their short, short lives. Only the stupidly rich need sign up to the waiting list.

Free Progen PR4 F1 car

The incredible Progen PR4 F1 car is also subject to a healthy discount as the normal price is $3,515,000. But thanks to a 70% discount, you can become Lewis hamilton for only $1,054,500.

Here’s the official description of it:

Okay, before you click off, we know what you’re thinking. The power, the handling, the aerodynamics, they’re all very well but what can you possibly do with as formidable an open wheel race car as the Progen PR4 on the city streets? You’re the one reckless enough to find out. You tell us.

We hope all of this newfound knowledge serves you well. You should now be able to link up your accounts and can look forward to a year’s worth of great GTA Online rewards.

GTA Online Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel Reward

The Diamond Casino Lucky Wheel has put a free Peyote Custom up for grabs for Lucky Wheel enthusiasts.

Normally costing you a hefty $620,000, you can lowride in style if you’re indeed lucky enough. Here’s the official description of the vehicle:

Once upon a time, in order to get your hands on a real Peyote you had to scope the right neighborhood, try to hotwire it before anyone saw you, lie low for two days, and only go to the mod shop after you’d dug the bullets out of your ass. Now, Benny will personally steal it, change the plates, dig the bullets out of his own ass, supermod it, and tell your friends you did it all yourself. Eligible for customization at Benny’s Original Motor Works.

New GTA 6 patent leak suggests Rockstar wants best NPCs ever

GTA fans have discovered a Rockstar patent that creates dynamic and complex NPCs to try and make the best NPCs possible in GTA 6.

Published

gta 6 rockstar npc patent

A new patent by Rockstar, to potentially use in GTA 6, has been discovered that will make the best NPCs and make them more complex and intelligent.

It’s been over seven years since GTA 5 first graced the gaming world and there’s still no official word that the 6th game is in development. Every passing day leaves GTA fans emptier and to fill this void, they are trying to find every bit of information they can.

“Their internet sleuthing seems to have uncovered an extremely interesting patent from Take-Two, which could have a major impact on NPCs in their future titles. Rockstar are well-known for filling their open-world games with as much detail as possible, and it appears that non-playable characters could be receiving a major upgrade moving forward.”

GTA 6 NPC patent

The patent, titled “System And Method For Virtual Navigation In A Gaming Environment” patent appears to show a complex set of decision-making algorithms that would affect how NPCs behave around each other and playable characters.”

There is also further evidence to suggest that this is a system to do with a potential new Grand Theft Auto game. The inventors are Simon Parr – Lead AI Programmer at Rockstar Games – and David Hynd – Associate Director of Technology at Rockstar Games.

Information about the patent was posted recently in a Reddit post and discussed by several users. The new system allows NPCs to be more dynamic and complex. You’d imagine the hope is that every player that plays GTA 6 will have new experiences and the world will feel different every time they step foot in it.

Rockstar is never one for settling for anything less than the best. So it’s entirely possible that we don’t hear anything official about GTA 6 for a long time yet.

In the meantime, fans will continue to speculate on the latest rumors such as GTA 6 having a female main character and strange files that further hint at the existence of the long-awaited sequel.

Once official information starts to trickle out about the game, we’ll report it here.
