For those GTA Online players struggling to complete one of the setup missions for the Diamond Casino Heist, here’s our guide on where to find the hacking device.
Although many thought GTA V would be entering its final years, it seems it may be sticking around for as long as 2025. For those who are either getting back into the Online, perhaps in preparation for the next-gen version, or maybe even joining for the first time, there are many ways to make money.
One of the best ways to make money fast in GTA Online is by completing the many Heists, one of which has been causing some problems for players.
The Heist set up mission, “Hacking Device,” is part of the Diamond Casino Heist DLC for GTA Online. The setup mission requires players to acquire a hacking device that can be done in two different ways.
Where is the hacking device in GTA Online?
Players can obtain it from the FIB Building, where corrupt FIB agents need to be taken out, stealing their security pass to gain access to the building and thereafter steal the hacking device from the upper floors of the building.

For this method, the GTA Online hacking device will be located inside a briefcase on the upper floors of the FIB Building, and if players are having trouble finding it, you can use the Sightseer app on the phone to let them know when they are close to it.
For the other method, players will need to steal the hacking device from the NOOSE HQ, where they will need to search an area, find and kill a corrupt agent to steal their access card.

Once players gain this access card, use it to enter the server farm, and similarly to the FIB variant, players will need to find a briefcase containing the haking device, which the Sightseer app may help them do.
Whichever you choose to do, the mission will end with players needing to take the GTA Online hacking device to the Arcade. Well, that’s it for where to find the hacking device in GTA Online. For more guides, stay tuned to Charlie INTEL.

Is a GTA Online ban wave coming in July 2021?
Reports of a potential GTA Online ban wave coming in July 2021 has become a major point of discussion in the popular game’s community recently.
One of the major topics currently taking the spotlight in the world of GTA Online is a potential ban wave that may be taking place in July 2021.
There has been plenty of excitement in the GTA Online community recently with the release of the Los Santos Tuners update, which brought a whole new set of cars and other exciting pieces of content for players to enjoy.
While the Los Santos Tuners update has injected plenty of excitement into the community, recent reports of a massive GTA Online ban wave happening in July 2021 have plenty of players curious about whether or not it will happen and what players it could be potentially targeting.
GTA Online Ban Wave July 2021
These rumors have stated that players who utilized frozen money, save wizard, or car duplication glitch exploits will be targeted by this rumored massive wave of bans by Rockstar Games.
However, Rockstar Games has not made any official announcements regarding a potential GTA Online ban wave happening in July 2021.
There have been plenty of false rumors spread around on TikTok in the video game community, so it would not be surprising to see that the rumors of a GTA Online ban wave happening in July 2021 be confirmed to be false in the near future.

However, the exploits that these rumors have focused on do fall under what Rockstar Games has stated it will ban players for when it comes to abusing game mechanics, so it would not be unfathomable that players who have utilized these exploits could be targeted by this rumored wave of bans.
As with any piece of unconfirmed information, it is important to take this rumor of a ban wave happening in July 2021 with a grain of salt.
Still, there is no doubt that this rumor has already sparked a great deal of discussion in the community as players wait to see if it actually comes to fruition this month.

GTA 6 amusement park map leaks debunked
There are rumors that GTA 6 will take place in Vice City, but one leaker has claimed that these are fake and were started by him.
Various rumors pointed to GTA 6 taking players back to Vice City, with a theme park being on the new map. Now, one man has taken credit for setting them up as an elaborate scam.
However, these rumors seem to be an elaborate scam by one man.
GTA 6 was reported to feature a theme park called Fred’s Fun World, with its map layout being leaked online. However, it seems that this was a fake by a man named ‘Tim McDowell.’

A post on Medium goes over why the recent leaks of the GTA 6 map are fake and also has a link to the YouTube video by McDowell.
“That’s right, I did this. I faked all of it,” the post reads. “Every leak regarding GTA VI on the entire internet. It was me. And I will strike again. You’ll never see me coming.”
The video itself features ‘Clubbed to Death’ by Rob Dougan playing as the “leaker” showcases the entire GTA 6 map from a new camera angle.
Many users on Reddit found the amusement park map to be very detailed, and it seemed in line with Rockstar’s usual humor. In his video, McDowell talked about this leak, mainly Fred Quincy himself.

“Dear GTA community, I have an IQ of 198,” said the leaker. “My goals are beyond your understanding. My graphic design skills are mediocre at best.”
The user then signed off after warning fans that they’d strike again, and the community would have to put up with more fake leaks. Hopefully, we’ll get some official GTA 6 content from Rockstar soon enough.
