New glitch allows players to get free race wins in GTA Online

GTA online players have found a glitch that gives you instant race wins for completely free.

There is a glitch in Grand Theft Auto Online that players can exploit to win races instantly. This is easy to perform and gives you all the rewards of coming in first place without putting in the effort of winning.

GTA Online puts you in the shoes of a violent criminal, and from there, you can do anything. It’s up to you if you want to rob convenience stores, perform heists, participate in races and events, or cause general mayhem. Regardless of what you choose to do, you’ll want some money.

The more cash you have, the greater the benefits you gain, such as new vehicles, weapons, outfits, and even your own personal Yacht. Earning cash isn’t the most difficult thing to do in Los Santos, but races give you higher rewards than most other activities.

The only major problem with this is that your opposition will try to throw you off course in order to win. Luckily, some players have found an exploit that you can use to win races easily.

How to instantly win races in GTA Online

Reddit user u/Reiss_Draws posted about this exploit in the GTA Glitches subreddit. You start up the race normally and find one random person to compete against. If you find yourself losing the race, then disconnect yourself from the internet right before the end of the race and immediately reconnect.

This then activates a glitch that kicks your opponents out of the race. You can do this by unplugging the network cable for 3 to 4 seconds before plugging it back in, or by turning your WiFi off then on. The reddit user simply disconnected his VPN and then waited ten seconds to reconnect.

This is obviously a very irritating bug to be on the other side of. Imagine working hard to get past your opponents and then staying ahead of them with victory within your reach, only for it all to be taken away in an instant.

This kind of glitch can be easily over-exploited, so it’s something that Rockstar should be looking into. However, the bug has been in the game for a while now, and they haven’t announced any plans to get rid of it.

Apex Legends devs reveal possible buffs for Loba

Apex Legends fans feel that Loba’s teleportation ability could do with a buff, so a senior developer revealed it might happen in future.

Loba in Apex Legends

Following a fan’s request for Loba to be buffed, Apex Legends developer, Daniel Klein, revealed that she could be buffed in the future, although she’s “pretty good right now.”

Loba was introduced to Apex Legends in Season 5, and while being one of the most interesting characters, some fans believe her abilities are lackluster compared to those of other Legends.

On the Season 8 teaser Reddit thread, Apex Legends fans pitched buffs to the High Society Thief, and a developer gave a detailed response.

Loba buffed in future updates

Loba’s Tactical Ability, Burglar’s Best Friend, allows her to throw her ‘jump drive bracelet,’ and teleport to wherever it lands. It has a 29-second cooldown, which some fans believe is too long for certain situations.

A Reddit user pitched a buff to Loba’s teleportation bracelet to Senior Game Designer, Daniel Klein. Similar to how Pathfinder’s Grappling Hook’s cooldown scales with how far it travels, Apexfan12 suggested that Loba’s bracelet should have the same mechanic.

According to Apexfan12, there have been “many times” where Loba mains accidentally throw the bracelet right in front of them and still have to wait 30 seconds for it to recharge.

“Definitely could do that!” responded Klein. “Could also just shave off time in general,” he considered. “I think the animations pre and post use could also do with some tightening.”

Klein then admitted that she’s “pretty good right now” and confirmed the update won’t be coming immediately, but we could see it in “a patch or two.”

Apex dev response to Loba buff

In the same thread, another user suggested that they could make Loba’s bracelet travel faster in the air so the landing animation isn’t taken away.

Klein shot them down, saying that “this would be a last resort,” as it would require a lot of new animation work and could have balance problems. However, he admitted that perhaps they could speed her up by reducing the take-off animation.

“This is experimental stuff we’re still playtesting and there’s a good chance we won’t ship it if it’s not healthy for the game,” he concluded.

Apex Legends Season 8 is set to launch on February 2 and will bring a variety of Legend balancing updates, but Loba will be left to “rest” for a while.
